BRUIN IN BATTLE
Sportsmen Have a Conflict With
BEASTS DROP FROM ROCKY CLIFF
Mother Bear and Nearly Grown Cub
Dispatched After Lacerating
the Hunter*. :
mmw York Sun Spmc/ai Bmrvlom
Goshen, >f. V., Nov. 11.—Beara are very
numerous in Orange and Sullivan counties
thi» season and a party of three well
known sportsmen who were attacked Sat
urday by two ferocious beasts had a nar
row escape after a most desperate fight.
Joshua Sands and F. \Y. Low of New
York, and Gustavus Schneider of Nyack,
had for a week past been stopping with
David D. Hall at Claraville. They had
spent the morning in hunting for part
ridges and about noon sat dowa to lunch
uader the lee of an overhanging ridge of
rock. Suddenly a good-sized bear cub
fell into their dinner party from the
rviks above their head. The trio of hunt
ers sprang to their feet. No sooner had
they done so than the mother bear and a
cub nearly grown tore down the ledge
of rocks and attacked them. Low's gun
was ready to his hand. He dropped upon
one knee and sent a charge of bird shot
into the old bear's left eye. She went
down and over, but was up and at him in
a moment. He had replaced the empty
bhcll and once again he iired, this time
blinding her other eye. Still she came on
growling fiercely and staggering from side
to side. With the muzzle of his gun two
feet from her throat, he sent the re
maining load into her carcass and she
bled to death at his feet.
The other bear, by far the fiercer of the
two, pursued Sands and Schneider as they
Bped oft' to a sapling against which their
guns leaned. Sands seized his weapon
and, turning, fired at the bear when it
was ten feet distant. The scattering
charge struck it on the nose. He fired
again, almost instantly, tearing off part
lit the young bear's front leg. It never
faltered in its charge and when almost
upon him rose to its hind feet.
Sands gamely clubbed his -weapon, and,
closing both eyes, struck with all his
might. As he did so Schneider rushed up,
and poking the barrel of his gun over his
comrade's shoulder, and turning it so that
Sands' chin was lifted, sent a load of
heavy shot full into the forehead of the
enraged brute. Fortunately for both hunt
ers, it toppled backward. It struggled
fiercely to regain its feet, but the crippled
foreleg prevented. Sands hastily slipped
two more shells into his gun, and taking
careful aim at close range, fired both
charges into the writhing monster, and it
died. The bear's body was as full of
holes as a porus plaster. Both Sands and
Schneider sustained scratches and lacera

Illuminating purposes. The fallacy of this
idea will be seen from the following quo
tation from a Texas paper: "In building
their big oil refinery at Port Arthur and
getting it in operation the J. M. Guffey
Petroleum company has certainly made
a world record. The plant, when com
pleted, will cover twenty-live acres of
ground and will be one of the largest, if
not the largest, refinery in the world. In
doing this work the item of expense has
not been considered by the company.
Four of the large stills are now finished
and in operation with a combined capac
ity of 12,000 barrels of oil per day.
The present process of refining is con
flned to extracting the illuminating oil.
The illuminating oil and sulphur appear
together in a liquid as clear as pure wa

phur, leaving a pure, crystal lamp oil, al
most odorless, that burns with bright,
clear flame and leaves but little smoke.
It is one of the best, if not the finest, illu

the managers of the Guffey company are,
that Texas oil is the greatest oil propo
sition the world has ever seen. It is
said that London firms have promised a
market for as much crude oil as can be
produced by the entire Texas field in ten
years, besides this excellent showing for
refined oil opens up a much larger field

cow from which the virus was taken was

that persons suffering from consumption
in its earlier stages can be cured by the

Consul General Dickinson Insists that
the surrender of Miss Stone must pre

ment of the ransom.
His attitude is justified by the known
determination of some members of the
band, particularly the captain, Yanne
Sandansky, to kill Miss Stone and her
companion as soon as the ransom is re
ceived, owing to the fact that the cap
tives have acquired information concern

Competent persons express the opinion
that the cupidity of the brigands will

Yesterday Mr. Dickinson made an en

ST. CLOUD'S SCHOOL FDND
MORE STATE MONEY WANTED
State Authorities Don't Want to Pay
for Children in Parochial
St. Cloud's school board theatens to
bring an action testing the validity of the
law under which the state school funds
are now appropriated.
The law provides that counties and dis
tricts shall receive a share based on the
number of pupils who have attended at
least forty days during the previous year.
Many children in St. Cloud attend paroch
ial schools, and the city does not get
credit for such. The constitution pro
vides that the fund shall be apportioned
equally on a basis of school population,
and the St. Cloud people therefore claim
that they should have credit for every
person between the ages of 5 and 21.
The school board recently appealed to
the attorney general, who turned the
matter over to J. W. Olsen, state super
intendent of schools. He informed the
St. Cloud board that he would continue to
observe the law until advised by com
petent legal authority that it is invalid.
By "competent legal authority," Mr.
Olsen would probably mean "the supreme
court of Minnesota." There is no rea
son to think that he will change the pres
ent custom unless compelled by manda
mus proceedings. He holds that the law
is upheld by common sense, as the educa
tion of children in parochial schools costs
the school district nothing.

so that I was often compelled to leave my

SMALL DOSE-PLEASANT TO TAKE!
The formula for Dr. Bull's Cough Syrup
was discovered by Dr. J. W. Bull, Balti

and was prescribed by him for many years.
It has cured thousands of cases of Grip,
Coughs, colds, Hoarseness. Bronchitis
and consumption. It never falls. Large
bottles, 25c, at all druggists. Refuse sub

has stood the test for 50 years, and is to
day prescribed by all leading doctors and
used exclusively by prominent hospitals.
