Tclsco Chronicle. Ho also oxhlblted a
suit of cloth'es which ho had worn
at tho tltud of the killing. They wore

to go over to an adjoining ranch, owned,
by J. W. Fltxslmmons, and remain .
there Until ho called for her on his
way back. Mrs. 'Smith was putting on
her bonnet when she was horrified to
observe the heaa of an enormous pan-
thcr through tho open door. She
sprang toward the window, hoping to
oscapo. At her first movement tho
panther sprang in at the door and
rushed under tho bed. Mrs. Smith
then ran through the door and rcachod

panther. Fltzslmmons took a shotgun
and Smith was armed with a butcher
knlfo and carried a lantern. Reaching
tho house, Smith stepped Inside, when
the panther, which had been feeding
on tho remains of a deer, sprang at
'his throat, bearing him to tho ground
and breaking tho lantern. Smith finally
succeeded In gaining his feet and called
Fltxslmmons for help, but tho latter
won able to see only tho dim outlines
of tho struggle. ,
Smith plied his knlfo and finally nuc
cceded In administering a fatal wound.
Tho panther released his hold, and,
Hftcr a fow convulsive struggles, lay
on the floor. Smith, though scratched
and lacorated, was not seriously In
jured. Mr. and Mrs. Smith remained all
night at tho Fltxslmmons ranch and
returned to their homo Sunday morn

they encountered another panther, tho
female, which wbb soon treed by Fltz
slmmons' doge and killed.
SPEED OP INSECTS.
A Comsaoa noma Fly Travail a Hits la
It is the poular belief that the flight
pf the birds Is much swifter than that
pf the insects, but a number or natur-
'allsl w 1 bave been making a study of
the ma think that such is not tho
case, sa. Science A common house
'fly, for example, is not very rapid in
Its flight, but Its wings make 800 beats
a cocond and send it through the air
twenty-flvo feet, under ordinary cir
cumstances, in that spaco ot time.
Whon the Insect Is alarmed, however,
It has been found that It can Increase
Its rate of speed to over 160 feet per
cocond. If It could continue such rapid
flight for a mllo in a straight lino It
'would cover that dlstanco In exxactly
33 seconds. It Is not su uucsminoa
thing when traveling by rail in tho
summer time to sep a bee or wasp keep- '

chase he saw between a swallow and

DECLINE OF WALKINO.
the Hhiil la ItaoponilliU for
Deal of It.
Wo found hnt .from soveral causes
the paco was always best' at the end
of tho dny, says the Country House.
For ono thing, tho .legs do not fall
nto the proper swing for the first mile
ir two, and with a big task before us
wo knew better than to hurry at start
ing. A strong, steady paco goes fur
ther In this, aB In everything. Then
we soon lighted on the fact that at the
end of a hard day, If there was any
doubt about lasting it out, the only
ihanco was to make the going as fast
hb possible Two men walking together
may bo equally and utterly exhausted
In body and mind, but If they hare got
. ""77 ,r lin rn
there are miles In them still. To
"top or falter at such a time Is fatal,
Tho legs give way, the knees shako
nd a stlffnese comes over the body
"" ! shaken off with greater pain
each time, until at lost It wl 1 p rove

'Plo I found easy to overcome by
nesr practice and resolution. In my
' daya I percpired profusely and
"uffered agonies In my parched throat,
f rlnklng at every spring which came
,n T,ew Soon tno tendoncy t0 pcr"
solratlon was mltlsated and I found
the simple determination not to drink
nut tho craving quite out of mind. I
put tho craving quite
always found It beet to drink us lit
tle as I could with comfort.
It Is of no uso shutting one's eyes
to the fact that long-distance walking
Is out of fashion and out of favor. I
am afraid the bicycle has given it
the coup do grace. It is natural to
prefer an exercise that will show you
eighty miles of country Instead of thir
ty with an equal amount of fatigue.
But I think and I know that the cy
clist misses a great deal, "in addition
to having chosen tho lens health-giving
pastime. In the cultivation of sound
lungs and broad shoulders the pedes
trian has no rival. He gets alt the
delightful smell of the country, which
the cyclist cannot catch whizzing along
In a swift atmosphorlc current He
geto all the pretty detail of woods and
fields and ditches and animal life, of
which the wheelman has only a blur.
Wo may legitimately turn the phraso
and say that he cannot eee the- trees
for the wood. Then it Is obvloua that
tho man on his feet can turn aside
and see tho cornera of nature and per
hapa finest of all Is the subtle and to
me alwayB exquisite pleasure of feel
ing the proud Independence of having
covered the ground by one's own un
aided locomotion. The walking man
Is the most self-contained man of all.
In a large town there are peculiar
itArrntfi to systematic walking.
chlefest Is the ring of dull and aorao-
imea drty suburbs which has to be
p,notrated beforo the open Is reached
nd actuai rjleasure commences. I al-
ways make a point ot starting from
outsldo, taking train to a suitable point
and returning by train. If need be,
from another. Want of company and
I fear declining energy curtail them
from the spans of yore. The solitary
ramDle. pleasant enough In Itself, will
cot compare with tho stimulus of a
good comrade, and you can never get
u the stcnm jn the same fashion.

There is nothing like going abroad
for tho news. A writer iu the London
Church Review Bays that It Is "a regu

and in other hot parts of America, tor
people to "get up and strotch them
selves, and even take a turn outside,
after the fashion of tho theater be

Atatla Csa of tho Last Clianea
preaa Ilia Opinion.
Last summer, whllo Judge Carpen
ter was spending a vacation up In the
:ountry ho had occasion to look at
lorao records and his attention wm di
rected to a whimsical will. Ho ar
'anged for a copy of It aa a iltorary
rurloslty and it came to hand ,hls
nornlng, say the Detroit Journal.
The testamentary clauses of the doc
imcnt aro as follows:
"I, William Darling of Grantneaa, 1st.
the township of , county and dis
trict of , Western Canada, eBqulre,
eing In sound health of body and my
mind just as usual, which my friends
who flatter me say Is no great shakes
it the best of times, do make this my
last will and testament as follows, re
roklng, of course, all former wills:
'I leave tho property of CI ran tn ess
md all other landed property I may
lie possessed of to my sister Ellen
and Betsy Darling, tho former be
:ause she Is married to a minister
whom (God help him) she henpecks,
tho latter because she is married to
nobody, nor is ehe likely to be, for sh
la an old maid, and not market ripe.
And also I leave to them and their
heirs my share of the stock and Im
plement! on the farm, provided, that
tho inclosure around my brother's
grave be reserved. And If cither should
die without Issue, then the other la
h or Its the whole.
'I leave my silver tankard to tbv
eldeet son of old James, as the repre
sentative of the family. I would haya
left it to old James himself but
would melt It down, and make teae
perance medals and that would be a.
tacrllege. However, I leave hlaa say

most easily beset him.
"I leave my brother Andrew y M

is rather a decent Christian, with ft
wag belly and a Jolly face.
"I leave Parson the snuff-box 1
got from the militia, as a small tokea
of my gratitude for the service he hat
done the family in taking a sister that
no man of taste could have taken.
"I leave John Carson a silver teapot,
to the end that ho may drink tea there
from to comfort him the afflictioa ot
a slatternly wife.
"I give my silver cup, with a aov
crelgn in it, to my sister Jane, be

Cremation Growing- Popular.
It is noteworthy that, though In e&ek
of the American crematories moro nea
than women have been cremated, tha
movement abroad was practically be
gun by women. Lady Dllke ot Eng
land and a German woman having been
cremated at Dresden. When efforts
were made in the years 1873-4 on the
continent of Europe, In England and
in the United States in favor of h
cremation of the dead Lady Rose
Mary Crawshay was one of its promi
nent advocates. A number of well
known women in this country have
expressed themselves decidedly in fa
vor of cremation. Among them aro
Olive Thome Miller, the late Kate
Field and Rose Elisabeth Cleveland.
At a public meeting Mrs. ..Balllngtoa
Booth referred to the time when her
body should be carried to tho crema
tory. The total number of cremations
in the United States from 1876, when
the first crematory was established, to
the close of 1895, was reported to ha
4,647. Nearly 1,000 persons were cre
mated in the last year In twenty-one
crematories. In tho cromatory at
Fresh Pond, N. Y.. eighty-five hoys and
alxty-slx girls were Incinerated. The
number of man cremated In New York
Is more than double the number at
women. New York Tribune.
On a recent Sunday evening la Bel
fast, Me., a young man In church look
ed frequently at his watch during the
sermon. Just as he was doing so tor
tbe fourth or fifth time the pastor with
great earnestness, wes urging the
truth upon the conscience of his hear
ers. "Young man," Bald he, "bow Is
It with you?" Whereupon the young
man with the gold repeater bawled aut,
in the hearing ot nearly tha whole con
gregation, "A quarter past eight." Aa
may be supposed, the gravity ot the
assembly wsb very much disturbed by
the occurrence. New York Tribune.
