The peculiarities of the French food
storesi arc beyond scrutiny. The
question with revard to thorn is not
what they do , but what they do not
sell. There is prolubly nothing from
a section of n boiler iron or'a cobble
stone down to a bout pin or n broken
liorae shoo nail that a Frenchman
cannot provide ajdrcssang lor to make
it appom'ni ' ; . An odd feature of the
Fronh Miops to an American is the
horao meut department. They all
deal in horse ilesh , both fresh , dtied
and salted. Horao llesh Hausagos ,
made , or supposed to bo nuido , in Ly
ons , and called Lyons sausage ? , are
very popular. Sausages made of u
compound of asses' flush , pork and
veal also have an extensive tale.
Sharks' fins , dried , are sold in
every Ohineso shop In Now York.
They are imported from China. Thoio
are three kinds , of which the best are
the fins of the white ohark. These
are worth SI3.GO a pound. The poorest
kind , which is known as black shark
fins , is sold for halt as much and even
less. Shark's fin la a popular dainty
among Chinamen. It is Halted and
dried for export and looks like a sec
tion of a whalebone , when raw , but
boiled in water a gelatine snbtanco is
extracted which is esteemed very
savory. A species of stow made of
shark's fin , dried oysters , rico and
poppers is a champion Chinoip di. h.
Dried oysters are ordinary bivalves ,
extracted from the ulioll , dipped in
salt , and strung on airings to dry in
the sun , They coino from China and
look for all the world like figs. John
Chinaman infinitely prefers them to
the freshest of oysters ho can buy
herd. Mussels , conks nnd cLuns are
preserved by him in the paine way.
Tlio famous bird's nest is also n
feature of any respectable shop in
Molt stroet. It ia queer stuff to look
atf r it rather resembles gravel than
any vegetable or animal , and tastes a
little like gum nrabic. The nests , it
seems , are dried and rubbed into
these fragments in the hand , when
they nro packed for transportation.
Bird's nest is worth from § 10 for the
commoner variety to § 25 a pound for
the best. It is essentially a luxury
for a pound of it will only make soup
for at most forty people , so that it
rates higher'than turtle soup in the
dearest season. Another dainty which
Ah Sin lias to have imported all the
way from China is dried cabbage.

February 12. The other day ,
while a resident ot this place
was walking ulon the road leading to
"Big Hickory Pond , " a large cata
mount sprang into the road and dis
puted his passage. Fortunately , Jus
dog was near nnd , being n powerful
animal , BOOH put the catamount to
tlight. This man was John Finley
'People , bettor known as "Phin Tee-
pie , the hunter. " Phin is about sev
enty-seven years old , and has killed
zully 3,000 deer , over 400 bears , mid
numberless wolves , wildcats and other
animals. Tceplo followed the cata
mount into thu woods and BOOH dis
covered two catamount kittens , which
he took to his home at Preston. The
next day he got out his rillo , which
had done him mich goud BUT/mo for
sixty years , nnd taking ono of the kittens -
tons with him , repaired to the spot
where he had first seen the big cata
mount. Hero ho tied the kitten to u
tree and retired n short distance ; when
the cries of the kitten soon brought
the old catamount to the spot. Ono
shot from Phin's rifle settled the ani
Tpoplo is probably the oldest hunter -
or in Pennsylvania. Ho hunted in
Wayne County when elk still were
found in the woods along the Dela
ware Yitllej , and many un exciting
and blood curdling adventure can ho
tell. Punthoru became extinct while
he was yet in tlio prime of life , Ed
Quick , of Blooming Grove , having
killed the last one seen for thirty years
in Wayne County , 1851. Up to the
fall of 187 ! ) Tceplo has usually made
an excursion over to Potter County
during the hunting season , for within
the past scoro.of years game has grown
HO scarce \Vnyno \ tlmt there has not

Pike and Way no Counties und
then hunting was a science. IJo
also tells thaton one occa
sion he shot six bit. ' bucks in
walking three miles , and then he wus
not huntiug , but was .returning home
from u visit to a friend. It was also
related of this wonderful hunter that
when ho was only foui teen years old
he saw u herd oi deer und fired at the
nearest buck. That one shot killed
three deer. The bullet passed through
the neck of the first , through thu body
of the second , und lodged in the kid-
of the third
Phin has killed more than one door
where1 the public park in the pretty
little town of llonpsdalo now is. The
old hunter never tires of tollins about

Phin Teeplo knew Tom ( uiek , the
Indian slayer , personally. JIo says :
"Quick was n devil in human form ,
who c.xred neither for God nor man ;
and delighted in braining peaceable
Indian men and women and murder
ing their little children. Anything
to maintain his reputation as the
'greatest Indian slayer in the world'
ho'd do. Long nfter peace was de
clared between Brandt's mi'ii ' and the
militia of the Delaware region , a par
ty of Soueca Indians \\uro camping
near the outlet of Duck Harbor Pond
in Wayne county. 'Iheao Indians
wore trapping for Beaver. Tom Quick
knew this , nnd he wont up there from
his cabin ntQuioktown , Pike county.
Ho took with him n. lot of whisky and
when he came to the Indian camp
pretended great friendliness , shared
their venison and tobacco , and treat
ed the crowd with his liquor , after
which ho loft them. Tlio liquor ,
which Tom had drugged with sumo
poisonous wild vine , soon took effect ,
nnd when the poor Indians were half
dead and helpless , Tom came back ,
took their weapons from them ,
brained them with his hatchet , and
nfter ndorninp his belt with their
scalps , removed all the furs to a place
of safety , and set the wigwam on lire.
Ho then carried the furs to Nowhurg ,
Now York , at that time the nearest
trading post , nnd sold them. Ho got
drunk thcio nnd told of this disgrace
ful piece of treachery on his part ,
the details of widen are so horrible
they can hardly be believed yet they
are undoubtedly the truth. " This ,
Mr. Teeplo says , was but a slight in
cident in the great Indian-slayer'.s
bloody career. *

Not far from Teoplo'a homo is the
spot where Luy Ann Lobdoll Slater ,
tno female hunter of Lung Eddy , an
account of whoso romantic life recent
ly appeared in The Press , lived for
several years with h"r crazy "wife. "

Abram Johnson , who died not long
ago in Salem Township , Wayne coun
ty , aged 108 years , was n relative , it
is said , of old 1'hin. Johnson was
born in Vermont in 1773 , and , nnd ,
being captured by tlio Indians in the
war of 1812 , fell in love with the
eighteen-year-old daughter of H chief.
They were married and moved to
\Vayno county , whore , in 1828 , she
died , leaving one daughter , who mar
ried nn Oneida chief , and shortly
afterward becoming a widow , married
auain and now lives in Lackuwanmi
county , this state. Johnson became
wealthy , lost his money by specula

county ulmshouse last fall.
THE BITER BIT.
A 'Minor Caught In Hla Own Stool-
Ono of the most , singular and at
the same time distressing accidents
which has boon chronicled for many n
day took place in liuckoyo gulch yes
terday , the victim being n miner liv
ing there und namud Henry Sullivan.
Late 'yesterday afternoon ho was
broui/ht to the IIOUBO of Dr. Smith ,
who know him personally. Ho wus
at the time Biiirerinu from a severe
cut on each side of his leg , near the
ankle , and a fracture of both bones.
An injury of this character , ut that
spot , is an extremely serious one , nnd
1 possible was done to relieve his
pain. How he received the injury
and how he reached the city embody
an exceedingly interesting story of
fortitude * . Sullivan lives , as many
other ininora do , entirely alone , in a
little log cabin at the head of the
gulch. Among the tools and articles
in his humble place of abode was u
largo stool strap , such us is used in
catching boars and heavy game. Its
shape , when optii , was oval , but when
the sprint ; wan touched two sets of
cruel teeth sprang together , closing on
whatever happened to bo in range , be
it nun or beast. The trap had not
been used for a long time , and stood
open in n corner of the , place. Yes
terday morning it occurred to Sullivan
that the trap might do some damage
in that condition , und accord
ingly he pulled it to the middle of the
floor to clone it up. In its long period
of disuse thu spring * hud become rusty
und the working pottionsof it otuck
together , refusing to opoato. Sullivan
labored with it for quite u time , und
then becoming un ry , picked up u
hatchet und began hammering at it.
Still the jaws refused to shut , and
without thinking of the consequences ,
lu thrust his foot against the level
and struck it u aiu , At that instant
there wus u clash , and thu teeth
sprung shut , pinning him just nbovu
the ankle. The spring * were of tin-
most powerful make , and , as there
wus no loosening them whoa they had
once caught , Sullivan , in lib agony ,
felt hia very bones crack under thu
death-like grip , and half fainted us he
t > unk to the floor. Then nerving himself -
self for u desperate eil'ort , lie wrench
ed at the stout iron with both hnndo ,
but without loosening it the fraction
of nn inch. Half nn hour oCpnin ami
tenor followed , nnd a new idea oc
curred to him. The trap waa fastened
nl the kiso with heavy screws bolted
at either sido. A wrench l.\y within
renrti , and grasping it with tlio
strength of iloapor.tHon , ho succeeded
at length in unfastening thu bolts.
Thu steel bars dropped apart m.d he
was free. It is needless to onlargd
upon his journey of a mile and a half
up the gulch , to the nearest house ,
nnd how ho was finally carried to this
city. His injuries nro of such n
nnturo tlmt ho may possibly yet suH'er
the amputation of a foot. Sullivan is
nn old Lendv'.lle man.
