Terror of All Other Wild Beasts of
Story of a I'itit to the Dentil wllli
a Cinnamon Uenr.
Last season I Vl out with a cotiplo of
frlsuds on the clfio coast eujojlng n
vacation, saht n sportsman to n Kansas
City tf.Wv3porter. One iVsywo fouud
ourselves in the little town of Situ
Raphael, In Lower Callforuln. At the
hotcrjfvhcre woatopped we fouud that the
'villujftrs hsd been suffering a great deal
by the deptedatious of the pautheis.
Game, such as deer ami smaller auimals,
their usnal prey, hsd been very scarce
and to nfifffl tip for It the pigs aud cows
of the residents had to suffer.
This was Just what weweie looking for,
and the next day found tin out iu the
Sierras on a hunt for tfee depredators.
During tho day I got separated from the
other boys and wandered around for
about Iho hours without finding a trace
of anything. I was about to glvo the
chase up and return for supper, and bad
selected a sort of natural path down the
mountain, when I heard a muffled growl
and the breakiugof a heavy body through
the brush koius dlstauce in front of me.
I recognized the-growl to be that of the
cinnamon bear, and knew by the wav be
uttered it that he was in trouble and'was
He w coming right towards roe, and I
bail just lime to conceal tuyaolf behind a
tree to one aide of the pathway when he
burst into light. His tyes were staring
and hi tongue was hanging out and the
froth flew from side to side ni be bounded
over the ground. I no sooner saw blm
than I heard tbo most horrible scream
imaginable. It was not such a ono as a
person would utter when about to suffer
some sudden and terrible calamity, but
was more a cry of rnge and madness.
The bear no sooner beard it than lie
seemed lo lose all hope. He bounded
past mo somo little distance and then
turned on his haunches aud prepared
himself as if waitiug an attack. He bad
no sooner got himself in position than
something darted past me with the
(lUlckneiBof o flash of chain lightning,
uttering ns it went something that
sounacd like the spit of an angry rat. I
could hardly turn my head when the
cougar, for such it proved to be, bnd
struck tbe bear, and all I could see was a
confusion of Hying fur aud a bowlldoriug
maze of .rapidly flying and powerful
pews. . , . . ..
Tbo lion bad buried H'flMh 'n the
bear's throat, and before ho could move
apawin'Rflf defense bad literally torn
him into shreds with its powerful, sharp
The wbrfie thing 'hsd happened so
quickly that I bad erarce time to catch
my breath when the tight was over, the
bear dead and the lion gone.
The bear's ribs were torn asunder and
ono of the sharp claws' had cut bis heart
in two. Ilia intestines were tbresdsand
the grass and brush for teu feet around
wero covered with hair, hide and blood.
I think the American lion is the tiuickest
thing on earth.

History of tho Word as Uaod in
tlio Loaguo Contract.
Cltnrloy Mitchell Clmlleligo to
Krunk Slitvln Creates it Sensation.
In view uf tho many lawsuits now iu
progress, hinging upon thn word ' ' ro.
serve," tho history of tho wont is cer
tainly Interesting. Messrs. Hanlon,
Irwin and llroiitliors, Committee of the
Brotherhood of llall-Plnyers to adjust
tlio coutr.ict between the National
League nml the players, a few .teats
ago met tbeir lawyer, J. V. 0. Dlackhurst,
at the Hotel Lafayette, Philadelphia,
and, according to affidavits to boused lu
the Ewlug suit, the following facts are,
Lawyer ll!ackhurst bnd framed n con
tract which gave the National Leagun nb
solute option ou Its plnyors for tbo year
Xiext ensuiug that for which it was signed ;
Irwin noticed this end said to tho Com
mitieet " Why, if we adopt this form of cou
tract we will give the Lcnguo owners
.nore power oer u than they have now
tliov will hnvoon abnolule optloii ou our
services for a year nfttr the contrni t Is
signed. V o do not want to give them
uoro power than they have now. Our
Idea Is to better ourselves. We shall not
do it If this couiract is adopted its It
stands now. "
I.uwyvr Blackliurst agreed with Mr.
Irwiu that the contract, ns it then flood,
did coin ey an absolute optlou, aud the
Coiumitteo tried for some time to Hud a
pbrnso or stuteuce that would convey ex
actly what they meant. Finally lrwiu hit
umm tbo word " leserve," and Counsel.
lor Blackliurst asMirod him that the po ut
the lilavent deidrcd to coarer was fully
provided for by the uso of this wont.
This, in substance, forms tbo affidavits
of the three players nbove mentioned,
which will be used lu tho Impending Bulla
against tbe p'nvorRbytho National League
owners. Mr. Blackuurst some time ago
wrotu an opinion, which was printed in
full lu the SportiM rime, wherein be said
that be believed the word "rciervo." did
convey au option to the Olnb.
Since writing Ibis opinion Mr. Black,
hurst has had tho conversation with the
Players' Committee in the Hotel Lafay.
ette recalled to his memory, and he does
not now believe that the word " reserye"
meant an option.

Thoso nights, when the great iable's
length enrjes from room lo room, trom
front to back of tho club.bouse. are pe
culiar nuiong tbo Jolly nights of the
metropolis, for then tbo cloth is flanked
by n double line of fsces that men of
the world ray aro tbe brightest find
handsomest they ever see in tbeir varied
experieui os. Tney nro the faces uf tho
f'llnws who aro talked about and of the
fei)ows who talk about them. The
editors, the critics; tbo loadlnf reporters,
the ixjets, the dominant artnts these aro
there as hosts i tha wits and pnlilta
officials, historians, collego presidtnts,
commercial kings, soldiers, travellers,
explorers those aro the guests. The
quoerest thing nbout them Is thst nearly
all are young or look young. Success is
the link that binds tbem all. and youth
and success am twins.
S9oral simple things have made the
Club seem mysterious. First, it never
feastiKatAcomiiiiineutB any man except on
ono drrje1 of tho year, whon it picks out
trom all the world ono great ronii to elect
ns an honorary nlorubcr. Henry M,
Stanley won that prize this year. James
Russell Lowell but year. At tbo monthly
dlnbers eyery guest ia the gtleat of tbe
member who briata him lo thoClubt no
man was ever tho Quest of tbe Club.
Then, agalu, its members must bo active
wrltpra or artists tor tho dallies or other
pcriodlcali, but they' must not contribute
to trade papers. Even those who are
clearly eligible must pais the Board
of Governors, Alio have absolute
power. Tbo orsflEuuenco is a small
Club, to bo sure-Sfouo of only 230 mem
hern. IbU-snotlier cnnsauenco is that

no man outsldo it h walls is its creditor to
tho amount of a sous marquee. No game
of chance has ever been played in its
room i. nud no word spoken nt itscele.
brsted dinners has evercbeen published
iu h newsnauer. Thoutrti it is n Club of
newspaper men, it is a very cave of
secreSRi No lgneflta performance 'has
eter been givel in its behalf; no actor
has ever rued it for his gain iu notoriety.
The pity is that only forty-seven ladies
have ever seeu its quarters; not that there
is any scruple pgairrat the better sex, only
so it has happened. At the exhibition
of paintings, the exhibitions of loose
sketches from the artists' portfolios, aud
on Ibe niusio ufteriloou this Winter the
ladies will have Ibree chances to allow
the Club's ungracious record to be altered.
