The llcforiiHMl Ionchrr However In
of tilt- Oitliilcm Thill There l Little
Dirterenee llcleeit llelux Killed
nnd IletiiK Soured to Dentil
The closest call I ever hnd remarked
the reformed poacher turned out to be
no call at nil but for a time I was sure
old Gabriel had his trumpet tuned up
for me and after nil there aint a
mighty sight of difference between get
ting killed and getting scared to death
And thats about what happened to me
It was In the early eighties tho llrst
winter 1 trapped In Allegash waters
nnd although up to the 1st of February
tliere wasnt six Inches of snow in the
woods I hnd snlted down In my slinck
the prettiest lot of furs Ive seen before
or since And out of 200 skins some
thing like 70 were otter
Funny thing too that run of otter
I took every one of them from a short
lino of traps set back of a small stream
of dead water The other traps tool
everything that came along beaver
fisher mink nnd ermine but these half
dozen somehow or other would spring
only on to the leg of nu otter And I
didnt kick n bit for the skins were
worth then just 15 apiece
Well come the 1st of February and
about time for a big snowstorm I got
unensy as trappers will wanted some
thing more exciting I guess and one
fine morning 1 bundled my furs on to n
big sled and set out for Klneo Tliere
wasnt any snow to spealc of on the
river and I made pretty good time up
Churchill Inke and about dark reached
the thoroughfare Into Englo lake
where 1 built a tire and got a bit of
Biipper It was a tine night but n
little breezy aud n big circle around
the moon told me of snow and lots of
it not far away So I figured twould
be a good idea to get to the settlement
about us soon as 1 could aud packing
up again I set out down the hike
Tho wind was at my back aud Just
boosted me along but the sled traveled
faster and kept bumping Into my feet
Says I to myself Why dont you use
the wind And I did Huuulng ashore
I cut a Btout pole and two crosspleces
and soon had n tlrst class sail set aud
was dying dowu the middle of Eagle
lake n smoklng my pipe as hnppy ns
any old salt coining Into port before a
fair wind There wasnt anything for
me to do but steer clear of Plllsbury
island not a hard Job so 1 burrowed
under the furs and sort of dozed off
thinking of the good times those otter
skins were going to bring me
The wind kept rising but the old
sled kept right along with It Thnt
didnt worry me any however for
there was no danger nud the faster we
went the better 1 liked it Well we
were drawing under the bead of the
Island when the sled struck a wrinkle
that sort of Jarred some life Into nu
nnd rousing up 1 looked about to get
my ben rings
Gee whiz What I saw drove nil tho
day dreams out of me Hlglit ahead
not 1000 yards away was a stretch of
blnck open water reaching clear across
the lake and the sled rushing right
into It ns fast as half a gale could drive
It Throwing myself forwnrd on my
knees I grabbed the mast to unship It
but I hnd done too good a Job puttiug
It up to be undone In n minute 1
pulled nnd pushed with all my strength
but It wouldnt give nn Inch Then 1
tackled the ropes that held the blanket
but they were drawn so tight you
couldnt start them although my nails
were torn off to the quick And all this
time the sled was driving nnd swaying
nloug nt race horse speed toward tho
awful black gulf yawning ahead I
could almost hear the waves breaking
along the Ice front Every moment I
expected to go through never to come
Cut the ropes enme to mo nnd
like n flnsh my hand sought my belt
But the sheath was empty I hnd used
the knife to cut tobacco nnd It was
somewhere beneath me among the
skins Too late to hunt for It too Into
even to Jump for safety for at thnt
instant the white Ice nt my side fnded
away Into blackness nnd throwing
myself forwnrd on tny face nmong my
precious otter skins I nwalted the fatal
How long I lay there 1 dont know
It seemed hours but It was only sec
onds I began to wonder If I had real
ly gone to the bottom nnd never
knew It If 1 was really drowned
why I wns not cold nud wot and
strangling Then came n sudden shock
a crash and I was hurled more dead
than alive from the sled
For a time 1 knew nothing 1 was
too near dead from fright to think
Then 1 mustered courage to look
around No I wasnt at the bottom
of the Inke or tlonting ou the Icy wa
ters but I was lying mighty well
bruised anil shaken up ou the rocky
shores of Plllsbury Island
It wasnt open water after all that
awful black space It was simply
black Ice across the channel that had
formed nfter the other nnd since the
last fall of snow But It fooled me
terribly And this is my closest call
no call nt all you see But 1 tell you
there Is mighty little choice between
being killed and being scared to death

Funny Story Abont a Itanalnn Beast
Which Slept In u lied
Livonia Is a pnrt of our globe where
fondness for pets coexists with love
of sport A Russian subject from thnt
province tells me of the strange con
sideration evinced by one of her neigh
bors for the feelings of a bear The
animal hnd an odd fancy for sleeping
Indoors nnd In a bed To humor him
a l ooiii in a tower wns always left
open for the nnlmnl Some nights he
came nnd availed himself of the hos
pitality but often he staid out In tho
woods If ho nrrlved nt his tower nnd
mounted tho long flight of steps which
led from outside to Ids own door nnd
found that anything prevented his en
trance the bear mnde a horrible noise
growling nud battering the woodwork
In Livonia during the brief northern
summer the locnl magnates visit each
other without prior arrangement nnd
they nrrlvo prepared to stop the night
It not Infrequently occurs that many
carrlnges converge nt the same time on
one country house with the result thnt
ns many as 40 beds may bo required
A large influx of visitors nrrlved one
night nt tho house where the bear had
his room The last comer wns n timid
n cousin of the house The host
met him rndlant
What n pleasure Ivau Youll And
hnlf the relations here But nlns
youll not have n good room Every
other corner Is full Theres only the
tower left As you know the bear
conies there But never mind Ho does
not put in nn nppearancc every night
The young man would fain have gone
farther but the nearest country house
wns ten miles off his horse tired and
the hospitable relations very pressing
Iu their Invitation to him to remain
He was greatly afraid of the bear but
still more afraid of offending host
hostess nnd all the other cousins nnd
neighbors lie decided to stny nnd nt
last retired to rest In a large square
room with two beds In it He Inquir
ed If he might not bar out the bear the
door had but n latch but he wns tod
that no fnstenlugs might be used the
bear was too noisy If shut out He
would not let a soul in the plnce have
a wink of sleep Besides he wasnt
coming very likely And further
tliere wasnt nny menus of altogether
fastening tho door It wns left on
the latch on purpose The Inst words
of a rather sleepy cousin to the new
comer were Bettor take the bed In
the far corner Ivan
The guest can hardly be sold to hnve
slept there The terror of bruin kept
him nwnke nt tlrst nnd then bruin him
self for In the small hours n shambllug
step nud n sound of claws on the steps
nnd balustrade froze the blood Iu the
unhappy youths veins Tho noise came
uenrer There was a fumbling nt the
latch With great growling and grum
bling bruin entered nud put himself
to bed In the couch near the door
There tho beast crumbled crunted
aim seemeu co snirr unat snimng
nlnrmed the other occupant ot tho room
most of all for ho thought It meant
that the bear scented him and might
resent his presence The wretch dared
scarcely breathe Dawu wns breaking
but thnt wns only nuothcr danger Tho
benr might see him Bruin a great
curled lump nbove the blankets be
came In due time visible to his fellow
lodger Then the bear snored There
was comfort In that sound But soon
ho rolled about nnd growled nnd groan
ed discontentedly The heart of the
watcher beat painfully loud no dared
not rise He had not nerve enough to
pass the sleeping nnlmnl nud rush
down the steps Terror paralyzed the
youth and prudence whispered thnt
Inactivity enn be sometimes masterly
The slow hours dragged on All the
company had nssembled down stairs
nt breakfast but bruin still slept nnd
the timid cousin watched him with
eyes that burned nnd throbbed At
last the host said Wheres Ivau
Wheres tho bear too Aud a mes
senger was dispatched to tho tower
there to llnd n pallid guest nnd his un
invited companion The messenger
routed out the bear who had been kept

Her Ambition
After the youthful but powerful in
tellects of tlit observntlon clnss Iu n
West Philadelphia school had devoted
15 minutes tho other day to making
known the results of their thoughts
upon nature and surrounding objects
the teaehei diverted their minds by
asking ench of tho dozen youngsters
what they meant to bo when they
grew up
One precocious girl of 7 looking up
nt the strong but not overly comely
face of the teacher whispered timidly
