Story of l
1 Clever Pony
Although there are few men of his
age more active than William Curtis
Gibson of East Houston street the
oldest survivor of the Volunteer Fire
Department he gives strong proof of
his Scotch ancestry occasionally by
his inability to appreciate a joke
Mr Gibson was born in New York
and he has always lived here His
friends say that only once in his life
has he traveled more than ten miles
away from this city That was last
summer when he went up to the Cats
It was on this trip that he met a
farmer who disgusted him witb every
thing rural Mr Gibson says he never
met a more stupid man and when he
tells his squirrel story to prove it all
his friends laugh The experiencee
speaks for itself
Mr Gibson was interested in the
farm at first because it was a novelty
At the end of the first week he said
to the farmer
Say this is great I am glad I
came I wish that I might take some
of your squirrels back to New York
with me as souvenirs of this trip
Secret of a Hunters
Great Success
Great numbers of wild geese were
killed along tbe Texas coast during
the past winter as happens every
year That region divides with the
Dakotas in the fall the honor of being
the greatest goose field on the Am
erican continent
The increasing shyness of the birds
was more marked than ever The
geese have been shot at so much in
the same territory that they have not
only grown wiser but many of them
have ceased visiting that region
It is no longer possible to kill quan
tities of geese in Texas by simple pasg
shooting or digging pits on the Gulf
There died not long ago in the Nue
ces region a Mexican poacher named
Gregorio who in the winter sold geese
by the dozen when other men could
not get a feather All of that country
Is in vast pastures fenced by barbed
wire and Gregorio being a market
hunter was ordered to stay out of
them all
In order to keep him out the gates
which are far apart were locked and
only the ranch bosses had keys Still
Gregorio would continue to go from
pasture to pasture covering thirty
miles in a day and to show up in
Corpus Christ or Rockport at night
with Canada geese hanging to his sad
dle and strung all over him
One day an overseer of cowboys
saw him a mile away on the prairie
and being curious dismounted and
watched him Gregorio was on foot
700 yards from a large flock of geese
His pony had been unsaddled and un
Keeping the horse between him and
the geese the Mexican began to circle
around them Now and then the pony
stopped to take a mouthful of grass
Any man let alono a goose would
have taken him for a loose animal
grazing on the prairie
In course of an hour he had been
worked within fifty yards of the
thickest part of the bunch Some of
the stragglers were not twenty yards
from him
Then Gregorio stepped from behind
him and fired one barrel at the geese
on the prairie and another as they
rose He gathered five or six then
rode to the division fence a quarter
of a mile away
Evidently it was his intention to
enter the next pasture The fence
was of three strands of wire the low
est one two feet from the ground
Gregorio got down from the saddle
and at a word from him the horse
sunk to his knees then turned upon
his side Gregorio took him by the
headstall and pulled his head under
the fence then took him by the tail
and pulled his hindquarters under
and so pulling first at head and then
at tail worked him through
Once clear of the bottom wire the
pony rose shook himself and stood to
be mounted as if nothing but of the
ordinary had happened The mystery
of Gregorios ability to go from pas
ture to pasture in search of geese and
ducks was explained and the ranch
boss was so tickled by it that he in
structed his men to let the Mexican

Advice Given by a Farmer Puzzles New York Man on His
m a
Sure you can said the farmer
Just go out and help yourself to as
many as you want Ive got more of
them than I want
Thank you very much but how
will I get them
Catch em of course Its easy
when you know how
All right you tell me how and Ill
catch a few
Well said the farmer first off
you creep up as near as you can get
to them
Yes said Mr Gibson
And then you make the right kind
of a noise to attract them and they
will come to you
What kind of a niose ought I to
make asked Mr Gibson eagerly
Just make a noise like a nut re
plied the farmer and off he walked
When Mr Gibson tells this story
he says positively that a nut does not
make any noise and that a farmer whe
had lived in the country all his life
without discovering that fact is too
stupid to live anywhere else New

Took the Slaa eli Out
of Station Aitocratt
That reminds me said the travel
ing man of an experience at Mc
Leansboro 111 years ago It was a
bitter cold Sunday morning when I
went to the depot to take a train west
It was the only one that day and due
in about an hour The waiting room
was cold Huddled in a corner was a
country woman a waiting passenger
with two small children both crying
from the cold An empty stove no
coal no matches no agent in sight
While debating what to do to re
lieve a trying situation I thought I
heard a noise from within the ticket
office which was hidden from view by
a window covered with paint I lis
tened closely and soon distinguished
the hum of voices from within
A little scratch in the paint cov
ering the ticket window revealed on
close examination four young men on
the inside by a warm stove playing
cards One was evidently the agent
Enraged I kicked on the door and
alternately rattled on the window till
with a slow hestitating shove it went
up a little and from within the agent
a youth with a surlv air demanded
What do you want Boiling with
rage yet imperturbable as a millpond
I asked for a telegraph blank which
was flung to me and this is what 1
Historic Titles and High Position Conld
Not Drown Sorrow
The earl of Perth and Melfort who
died at Kew a few days ago in his 95th
year was chief of the Clan Drummond
and therefore the head of one of the
oldest and most historic families in
Great Britain Lord Perth was Due de
Melfort in France and altogether he
had six Scotch and three French titles
and was also hereditary thane of Len
nox and hereditary steward of Men
teith and Strathearn but these were
barren honors as the vast territorial
possessions of the dukes of Perth had
passed into other hands
Lord Perth was engaged for many
years in litigation to recover the large

gers freezing
As placid as if nothing was out of
the ordinary I handed him a 5 bill
with the request to take the pay out
of it and send the message at once
Before half the words were counted
by the autocrat of a moment ago he
was an humble servant of the present
Apologies and explanations by the
score were forthcoming intermingled
with pleading that to send it would
involve ruin for his career
It was my turn to assume the role
of dictator and if ever a fire was
kindled in a hurry then was the time
With all the dignity due to a prince
and his suite the freezing family and
I were treated
Passing through a year after I
asked the bus man how the agent was
getting along The story had evident

said He got a dressing down last
winter from an official of the road who
happened along in disguise and it
has made a man of him I was that
official a plain traveling man but
