Must Listen In Silence.
In the placid period that preceded the
war, Canten, Ky., was one of the princi
pal shipping ports for a large section et
that portion of " Ged's country " included
in western Kentucky. It was also the
brag town of the region for marble and
checker players. Everv drv ami nlpfiannt
afternoon the principal citizens of Canten
raigut be leund in the Street, beguiling
with diminutive spheres the tedium of
waiting for business te come te them.
"When it was tee dark te play marbles they
devoted themselves te checkers. Their
skill in both of these noble games was
pre-eminent, and whatever stranrcr mn.
sumed te tackle any of them was suddenly
and severely worsted.
The business of Canten is net what it
was, but the renown of her solid citizens
as wonderful manipulators of marbles and
checkermen is still unsurpasbed. But
there are hours when it is impossible te
play marbles, and when even the excite
ment of checkers is wearisome te t.hn smii
Then they have ether resources. They tell
stories of hunting and ether exploits, and
some of their sterirs would seem, te a per
son unacquainted with the simple truth
fulness of these men, even mere marvel
ous than their skill at the games that have
been specified. It is true that there is but
little te brag about new-a-days, but much
is te be said of the times when big game
was plentiful in Kentucky. The ether
iiigni, me conversation, alter ranging ever
me wneie gamut ei game, finally became
flxed upon bears, and this shut out the
young men, most of whom had never seen
a bear outside of a menagerie.
"Speakin' of bears," said Uncle Sam
Sheerer, a veteran who looked as if he
might have fought by the side of
Gen. Leslie Coombs at the battle of the
Kiver Raisin, "thar's a powerful sight of
sense in a mule, though that's nethin new.
Seme folks say that nobody but a nigger
understands mule, but it's my notion
that nobody but a mule understands him-
M.-H. iuu an may ininic you knew as
much about mules as anybody, but did
you ever sec a mule fight a bear? Ne?
Well, I have, and I owned the mule that
did it. Way back in I reckon we needn't
mind the year I was ridin' through a
patch of canebrake en a big black mule,
when a sizable bear came out of the brush
and made for me. I didn't have my rifle
along, and se I whipped up the mule te
get out of the way. That mule made
geed time out of the canebrakc, but when
wc get into the timber, he stepped in the
middle of a glade, and nothing eeuld make
the cussed crittur stir an inch. As the
bear was com in' en at a ricrht peart nace. I
slipped off the dum feel's back, and
shinned it up a tree. When I was well
fixed in the branches, I looked down into
the glade and saw a lcetle the queerest
sight that my eyes had ever been treated
te. The mule faced the bear and the bear
came head en at the mule. Just as old
Brownie was ready te fight, the mule gath
ered his heels together and flew ever his
head like shot out of a shovel. That bear
was astonished nearly out of his senses ;
but as seen as he could get his wits he
turned square around and made for the
mule. Again the mule gathered himself
up and gave a nym' leap evear the bear s
head, lightin' clear en t'ether side. If that
game wasn't kept up for full half an hour
then my name ain't Sam Sheerer, and I
didn't sit up in that tree watchin' the
whole performance. The mule was in the
highest kind of spirits and enjoyed the fun
up te the top notch, te judge by the way
he snorted and snickered whenever he went
ever old Brownie. But the bear was the
maddest crittur, I reckon, that ever steed
en four legs. He wheeled and turned,
and growled and reared, and snapped and
slapped, until he wasn't able te de justice
te the subject any mere ; then he sat up en
his haunches and panted, with his big red
tongue lolling out. Then was the time
for the mule te show fieht. and he backed
up his battery. The first time he let his
heels fly he took the bear square en the
side of the head, and sent him sprawling.
Then he examined his work, and snickered
when he saw that the job was done, and I
slipped down the tree and went and cut
the bear's threat. New, gentlemen, it is a
fact that befere that time the mule would
never allow me te carry as much as a
sheepskin en his back ; but he steed still
and let me lead the bear en te the saddle,
and a mighty tough job I had of it. Per
haps you would like te knew hew mueh
that bear weighed?"
"I reckon we may as well let that part
of the story go, Uncle Sammy, "said Judge
Greenway, another grizzled veteran. "Yeu
have been se careful te stiek te the plain
facts se far that I am afraid you might be
tempted te stretch it in the matter of
weight. There's mere things thau mules
that can kill bears, and mere things than
guns and traps. When I lived in the
Green River county, before most of you
were born, I had a queer experience with a
bear. I had been te the nearest store, a
matter of a dozen miles or se, en feet, ivs
my only horse was dead lame, te get some
groceries, and was bringing home two
quart bottles of whisky and a ball of cord.
Going through the weeds I reused up a
big bear that came for me full tilt, I gave
him a shot from my rifle, and the bullet
struck him in the left foreleg and hurt him
pretty badly ; but that only made him
mad, and he pushed for me en three legs
faster than before. There was nothing te
de but te run for it, and se I pulled feet
for a tall young hickory and scrambled up
as quick as I could, dropping my rifle at
the feet of the tree. The bear couldn't
climb with three legs, but it was plain te
be seen he wanted me, and meant te have
me if he could get me. Se he smelt
around for awhile, and then sat down and
waited. In the course of time this sort of
thing began te grew mighty tiresome, and
I saw that I had te de something. I had a
bottle of whisky in each pocket.
"Wait a minute, judge," interposed a
young lawyer from Hopkinsville, who
prided himself en his cress examination.
"I would like te knew hew you could
climb that tree in a hurry, with a bottle of
whisky in each pocket, and net break one
"Yeung man," sternly replied the
judge, "you were born tee late if you
don't knew that no true Kentuckian ever
breaks a bottle of whisky under any cir
cumstances. As I said, I had a bottle of
whisky in each pocket, and I knew what
an imitative creetur a bear is. I hated te
lese the whisky, but felt that I must give
up that or my life. I tied the end of my
cord around the neck of one of the bottles,
held it up te my month as if I was taking
a big drink, and then let it down te the
bear, who had been watching me as if he
wanted some. He took held of it as care
fully as any of us could de, stuffed it into
his jaw, and didn't take it awar until he
had drained the last drop. It astonished
above proof, and then he get a feeling
geed, and you may be sure he showed it.
He began by patting and rubbing himself,
and then he rolled ever and tumbled about
for a while, and finally he sat up en his
haunches, swaying about and winking at me
fairly begging for mere whisky. I saw
he would have te get it ; se I hauled up my
cord and made it fast te the ether bottle.
I put that bottle te mv mouth, and con.
fess that I allowed a few drops te slip
through my gullet before I let down te the
bear, lie disposed of it in short order,
and then began the queerest cutting up, I
reckon, that whisky ever caused. That
bear was drunk in proportion te his size
He played with the bottle, and he played
with the line attached te it, and I kept

hoping that he would tangle himself up in
it, and he seen did se. He forget his
wounded leg, and hopped about, and rolled
ever and ever, until he was completely
done out. The whisky gradually made
him stupid, and at last be was se wound
up in tue cord that lie couldn't stir,
and I don't suppose he cared te.
Then I came down from the tree and cut
his threat, and went home te get help te
brinjr him away. The first nieces of his
meat that we cooked "
"Maybe you had better step there,
judge," said old Cel. Neblett. "Your
reputation for telling the truth is se geed
that we don't want you te stain it by any
exaggeration. After all, gentlemen, the
best way te kill a bear is te sheet him,
provided a man has a geed rifle, and
knows hew te use it. Bears were plenty
when I settled en Little River, and we
used te make up parties te hunt them. A
bear hunt was made uu for the second
week in November after I moved en te my
land, and I was asken te join it. I wasn't
much acquainted with the neighborhood,
and the people didn't knew my ways ; se
I thought I might run a joke en them and
make them supply me with bear meat te
lay in for the winter. It is ene thine.
you knew, te kill a bear, and another
thing te get him home. Seme ten
days befere the hunt was te ceme off I
went out and baited the bears and then
went out and watched for them. By geed
luck I struck three of them that day, but
I didn't kill them net a bear. I don't
suppose, gentlemen, that there was a man
in Kentucky who could outshoot me in
these days, and I put in some of my best
work en theso bears. I marked each ene
of them exactly alike by sheeting off the
tip of the right car and putting a bullet
through the left ear. That was all I want
ed et the bears just then. When the day
for the hunt came along and the party call
ed at my place te pick me up, I told them
that I was under the weather and didn't
allow that I felt well enough te go. ' I
wish I could go,' I said, ' because I've get
some tame bears loose in the weeds and
would like te leek them up.' They stared
at me as if they allowed that I was crazy.
'Perhaps you don't believe me,' I said,
but what I tell you is a fact. There ara
five of these bears that I raised and petted,
anil they are all marked with my hog
mark. I have been meaning te get them
home before winter, and lay in the meat of
three or four of them.' At this they
laughed in my face. ' There's no joke
about it, gentlemen,' said I, 'my mark is a
crop off the right ear and a hole in the
left. If you happen te sheet any bears
with that mark en them, you may knew
that they belong te me? They premised
that if they get any bears marked in that
way they would bring them home te me,
and went off laughing. New, gentlemen,
it is the truth, if I ever told the truth in
my life, that that party get just four
bears en that hunt, and three of them
were marked with my mark. They
brought these three bears home te me.
and I had plenty of bear meat for the
winter, and after that nobody in the set
tlement ever thought of disputing my
word about anything."
"I would like te knew," remarked that
intrusive young lawyer from Hopkins
ville, "why you didn't sheet theso bears
instead of taking all that trouble te mark
" Yeung man," rejoined the colonel in
accents that mingled sorrow with severity,
" it is plain te be seen that you didn't live
in them days," and that was the last
effort of the Hopkinsville lawyer.
" I thought I knew a mighty geed story
about coon hunting in the Tenncssee bot
tom," said little Tem Sypert, "but I am
inclined te think it wouldn't count in this

"Emma," said a bondholder whose
purse held mere than his head, "It is time
for you te marry. Your mother and I
have chosen neighbor Gran's son, and the
affair progresses favorably." " But I don't
love him ; I don't respect him. and I won't
marry him," cried Emma. "What bosh,"
answered the enraged parent. " Se you,

Mr. Charles Pack relates that when the
new famous Edisen was a young boy at
Fert Gratiot, Jlichigan, he delighted in
frightening mothers aud nurses by kidnap
ping children. One day he took a child off
into the weeds and remained a whele day,
while the distracted mother and sympa-
inizmg menus were scouring the country
round, and dragging cisterns for the lest
little ene. When Mr. Pack was a little
child his father presented him with a min
iature locomotive. Edisen, who was then
about 15 years old, heard of it, and made
every effort te get it by teasing the nurse.
Finally one day it very mysteriously disap
peared, and its whereabouts could net be
traced. In a few days Mrs. Edisen called
and brought with her the locomotive in a
disgruntled condition, however. Yeung
Edisen had taken it apart and was unable
te put it together again. Mrs. Edisen
