An unusual Incident occurred In police
court Saturday morning when Ike Ruben
Of 130S Chicago street was fined JS and costs
en a charge of cruelty to animals. The ani
mal which the arresting officer maintained
Ruben had been working Inhumanly was
brought to court by the defendant and tied
outside the court room.
"What's my finer asked Ruben.
"Eight and costs," repeated the Judge.
Turning; to Officer Wooldridge, Ruben
sked whether the officer could sell the
horse and realize enough to pay the fine,
and upon learning that such a thing would
be out of the question Ruben gave the
horse to Wooldridge, who now feels he has
a white elephant on his hands. The horse
has the appearance of having gone through
many campaigns and looks about able to
draw an Ice cream freezer along the street.

DECATUR'S TRIAL BEGINS
Two Midshipmen Testify that ew
Hampshire Kara! Cadet Ilased
ANNAPOLIS, Md., Dee. 30. Midshipman
Stephen Decatur, Jr., charged with hazing
Midshipmen lsaic N. McCrary And Gaylorrt
Church, wns arraigned before the naval
court-martial this afternoon and pleaded
not guilty on all specifications.
Two midshipmen of the fourth class,
Isaac N. McCrary of Calvert, Tex., and
Gaylord Church of Meadvllle. Pa., testified
positively this afternoon that Midshipman
Stephen Decatur, Jr., of Portsmouth. X. H.,
a member of the first class, had hazed them
on different occasions. Decatur m-IH, ac
cording to his counsel, go on the stand
Tuesday, when the court m-Hl again meet,
and deny under oath every statement the
two under classmen made Incriminating
him. As the evidence of each of the
prosecuting witnesses was to separate inci
dents and entirely uncorroborated, there la
a possibility that the evidence will be con
sidered insufficient to convict Decatur,, but
the apparent fact will remain, should the
latter make the denial promised, that a
perjurer Is wearing the uniform of a mid
shipman of the United States navy.
Young Decatur was arraigned at 2:80 this
afternoon and plead not guilty to every
charge and specification. Midshipman Mc
Crary was then called and testified clearly
and positively that ho had been hazed by
Decatur, who, he said, had sent for him to
come to Decatur's room. There ho had
ordered him to stand on his head in the
closet, and he had done so until he was
exhausted, about 150 times. Decatur then
compelled him to do "No. 18," and he was
ordered by some one, possibly not Decatur,
he said, to perform "the leaning rest."
AH of these were continued until the wit
ness could do them no more. The witness
showed the court the manner of perform
ing the two exercises. In "No. 16" the
hands were placed on the hips and the
body lowered and raised by bending the
legs outward and straightening them again.
In the "leaning rest" the hands and feet
were placed on the floor with the body
rigid and the body raised and lowered by
bending and straightening the arms. This
mas designated as "No. 7" in the specifica
tions, but this mas apparently a blunder.
McCrary m-as rigidly cross-examined, but
his story was not shaken. Finally he said.
In answer to a question, that he would not
believe Decatur If he swore that he had
not told him to stand on his bead and per
form "No. 18,"
Midshipman Church testified that Decatur
had ordered him to stand on his head, but
he was not so positive as McCrary, and
admitted that he might be mistaken. These
were the only m-ltncsses for the prosecu
The remainder of the session was taken
up by witnesses who testified to the good
reputation for truthfulness enjoyed by
Decatur. Those who gave this testimony
were Commander W. F. Fullam, Lieu
tenant Commander Ed ward E. Cspehart,
Prof. Harry P. Huse and Midshipman
Lawrence S. Stewart and Charles E. Hovey.
Mr. Theall, Decatur's counsel, stated that
the accused midshipman . will go on the
etand, on Tuesday and deny specifically
every statement made to the effect that
he had hazed either McCrary or Church
end that there would be evidence offered
tending to establish an alibi.
Charges have been filed against Midship
man Worth Wright Foster of New Albany.
Ind. It is specified In his caso that he
hazed Midshipman Chester S. Roberts of
Jollet, 111., by compelling him to get under
the table while eating his supper.

constructed hla Ideal palace. M. Cheval
mas led to start the building by tripping
ove.' an odd-shaped stone. He carried It

li'.ea of using them In a building.
The palace ia about eighty-five feet long,
forty-five feet wide at one end and thirty,
three at the other. In the center ia a
gallery with a catacomb at either end.

Stones formed by nature in the likeness
of animals form the south front, where,

KILLING WOLVES FOR BOUNTY
Serve and Intensity of Wolfer Jim
Against the Pest Wyoming;
A meeting of stockmen was held In the
Big Horn basin of Wyoming the other
day to consider the question of Increasing
the bounty on wolves. These animals
have been Increasing so rapidly in north
ern Wyoming In recent years that it Is
said they are killing calves and carrying
off sheep In broad daylight.
Wyoming pays a bounty of W a hea.1
on wolves, but this Is not enough to pay
for the trouble of killing them. The
stockmen propose to subscribe a fund, in
creasing the wolf bounty to $ a scalp,
and this. It Is anticipated, mill set the
"wolfers" At work again ridding the range
of its greatest pest.
In Montana, which pays a heavy wolf
bounty, there Are several wolfers so ex
pert that they are known all over the
northwest. On the Crow Crck Indian
reservation. In the southwestern part of
the state, are tm-o wolfers who are prob
ably the most skilled of their class. One
of them is Lee Farish and the other Is
known simply as Jim. Of the two, Jim
Is probably the more skilled. He Is able
to catch wolves when, in the vernacular of
the country, "there ain't anything but
coyote tracks In sight."
His outfit Is up-to-date In every par
ticular. The traps form Jim's most ef
fective way of disposing of wolves. A
trap may be skillfully planted near a
"bait." but unless the odor Is killed the
chnnces are the wolf will keep at a safe
distance from the lure. A coyote may be
caught in the trap, but not a molf, for
the more savage of these prairie ma
rauders is also the most shrewd.
"t'ntll I found a secret compound." said
Jim the wolfer, "I used to poison the
wolves. I have lost thousands of dollars
by having the wolves eat the poison And
then get away and die where I couldn't
find the bodies. There Is no poison that
will act quick enough to kill a m-olf rlrht
away. He has a chance to mil. o
for It. and then It Is up to you to find
the body and get your neit T n
the poisons that man ever Invented. I
guess, but nothing would get Mr. Wolf
in an instant.
"So I tried flxlnr nn mv in., t
-' u leu
all sorts of methods of burvlng them
but that wouldn't work, as a wolf can
smell a trap far underground. Then I
thought of cettl
kill that smell of steel. So I worked and
TKea. and finally I got It. Now I Just
emear It over my traps and plant them.
And Mr. Wolf. If he happens to be In the
neighborhood of the bait, blunders Into
the steel and his pelt Is mine."
Next to trapping the wolves comes trail
nir them to their dens and slaying them
literally Jn their own castles.
"I don't take any firearms Into the den
with me." said Jim. "Why. man. it
would kill you to fire a revolver In a little
Place like that. I take a hatchet to en
large the sides f the den as I go along,
and I carry a long rod to kill the wolf
If Mr. Wolf shows fight I simply Jam that
J"" thrat' Rnd thnn 1lm
with the hatchet. Sometimes if I forget
the rod I Just Jam the hatchet down the
wolfs jaws until I can get a good blow
with it. But a wolf hardly ever show.
nght,f unless it Is to snap at you once or
twice. Oenerally there Is a little recess
at the end of the den, and the wolf will

Just reach Into the den when I have

molf by the hind leg and yank It out and

back up to the mouth of the den and
Jim Is noted as the best shot in south
ern Montana. He carries a heavy old

to plant his shots, perhaps there Is a good
