lIrs. Molllo Hughe3, a highly ro
spectcd widow lady, living near Cam

unlquo and mo.tt dlstiessing disease,
saya tho St Louis Kcpublla Littlo
by little tho llesh of her entire body Is
turning to tolld bono, or. In othor
words, sho la becoming ossified. Tho
diicnse was first not ccd In 1880, whon
Mrs. Hughes was 51 ss Duychlnk of
Canon Ilnplds. At that timo only a
slnglo finger waa affectod. Within a
month aftor tho tlmo when Jlls Duv
chink first noticed tho numbness und
BtltTness of tho flngor it had been acci
dentally broken off whllo sho was
fcsleop. Tho Incident gave tho girl no
pain, thoro being nolther blood,
nerves or flesh left In tho diseased
membor. but it oxcltod the n'arra of
tho family, who called In a physician.
Tho broken stump of tho linger wn3
amputated back to whoro tho living
llosh eot on and everything waa
thought to bo all right Soon tho
ficah. muscles, nrtor.03, veins and
nerves on her hands, fingers and arms
becamo as hard and feellngless as tho
the finger had been beforo it wa3
broken off. Next tho awful malady
extended to hor elbows, tho foreniras
becoming as white aud ns clear as
alabaster. Within tho year tho toes
and tho end of tho noso and car t ps
showed a llko color and rlgldnoss.
Tho process of ossification hn now
been going on nearly five years, and
tho attending physicians say that it is
only a matter of time when the cntlro
body of tho poor victim will bo tolld

pathology of It Is littlo understood.

A strango bird, which has attracted

tho tall of a turkey. Tho bird was
caught a few wooks ago whllo tho
family were returning homo from
church, and not until It had received
a load of shot did it allow ltsolf to bo
taken cuptivo, and then Its captor was
fearfully lacerated In tho light that on

HOW TO KILL A BEAR.

Whllo Ernstus Holland, of Tunka
hnnna Creek, was on hla way homo
fromStautTos mills ono lay he stopped
at Durious JNlyor's place and bought a
ram, says a Scranton correspondent
of tho New York Sun. Holland w.ts
driving a skittish colt to a pung, and
ho tied tho ram's legs and put him In
tho bottom of tho pung along with a
lot of other things that ho had bought
at tho mills. On his way past Owl
Swamp u boar waddled out of tho
bushes and started to cross tho road In
front of him. At sight of it tho colt
snorted and wheeled completely around
in splto of all that Holland could do.
Tho pung was upset Holland landed
on his knees in the snow, and tho r.im
nnd everything else in tho pung rolled
out Holland clung to the lines, und
after ho had been dtaggd somo dis
tance ho stopped the cult.
While he was getting thorlgrightcd
ho heard tho ram bleating, and looking
back ho saw tho bear making for tho
ram. Tho latter was struggling hard,
and boforc the bear reached him ho
had broken tho strings on his legs and
jumped to his feet Tho noxt thing
Holland knew tho ram ran p.ist htm
with tho boar closo at his heels. Tho
tnm legged it along tho road for dear
life, and &o did the bear, but the rum
was fleeter of foot, and ho kcptsovcral

By that tlmo tho colt had got uscd
to seeing the black beast, and Holland
jumped into tho pung. whaled tho colt
with tho linos, und sent it racing after
tho ram and bear. It was down
grado. and at a turn In tho road tho
tarn sprang over a stono wall and took
across n field. Just then Holland
overtook tho bear, r.tu tbo right run

It Into a ditch. Tho bear was turned
end for end, and when It got up It
started on Its back trade Holland
wheeled tho colt quickly, ran tho bear
down again and knocked. It out of tho
