SHE HAD MONEY TO SPEND.
Visions of Iliches Appcnr to Chester
Oxford, Pa August 19. Land own
ers In the Big Elk Valley, Chester
county, have bright visions of fortune
as the result of a visit paid them a
few days ago by a fine-looking woman,
who introduced herself as Mrs. Huld
Inah Moore, of Frederick, Md and
gave them to understand that she, was
fabulously rich. She said she wanted
to start up a biff stock farm In the
valley, such as she already had In
California, Florida, Maryland and
Virginia. After casting1 around she
offered to pay $100 an acre for the
farms of Ferdinand Wood, Joshua
Mackey, II. A. Herbot and Dr. Qulnby,
and said she would soon bo around
with the money.
Later she appeared at S, P. Gilllng
ham's farm, near Coatsvllle, and asked
permission to stay a couple of days,
which was granted. There she again
dilated on her plans and talked nbout
stock-raising like a veteran. When
she took her departure she told Mr.
Gllllngham she would Bend him n cou
ple of gallons of the best whiskey and
his son Joseph a blooded Holstein bull
for the entertainment. All with whom
she negotiated are now waiting1 ex

They Will Soon All Ilo Under Arrest

Pittsburg, Aug. 19. Tho sti Iking
campers nt Plum Creek nnd Turtl6
Croik marched again today after the
programme arranged In couples 100
feet apart. The deputies formed n
lino across the road and warned them
hack as fast as each pair came up.
Each aide wanted the other to take
the aggressive, but both factions were
wary and neither advanced beyond a
certain point. Tho strikers then re
turned to camp, but n few of them
later managed to escape the deputies
and got among tho miners, doing con
siderable missionary work. It was de
cided to march again tomorrow.
Tho deputies have been gradually
closing In on the camps and will con
tinue doing so until "the men will not
In' able to leave tho camp." This
would virtually place them under ar
rest. They are still making It as un
comfortable as possible for tho work
ing miners nnd deputies. If the nt
ttmpt to pass tho deputies Is succes
fut In the morning, the women will
Join the ranks on Saturday.

FLEECING GREEN GOODS MEN.
Successful Scheme to Work tho
Shnrpcrs lor 75 Cents n Clip.
Allentown, Pa., August 19. Several
enterprising young men of this city
have recently been making a good
thing out of transactions with green
goods sharpers. There has been a
tlood of green goodH circulars, worded
In the stereotyped style, with advice
to the receplents to telegraph to A. B.
Crum, Tocantico Hills, N. Y., for sam
ples. One young man carried out the di
rections and was surprised a few days
later by the receipt of a good dollar
bill. Minus the telegraph charges, 25
cents, he made a cean profit of 73 cents.
Since then a number of others have
followed the example and are reaping

Beaver Falls, Pa., August 19. A pe
culiar suit to compel the school board
to l&nie a diploma to Lee Tomlinson.a
graduate from the High school In this
year's class, will shortly come up here
before Judge Wilson. Young Tomltn
son, who completed the scientific course
with credit, refused to deliver an ora
tion at commencement, because, ho de
clared, that several girls In the class
were graduated without meeting the
requirements. He wanted some distinc

his own. The board did not see It that
way, and when he did not speak cut
him off without a parchment. . His
father Is vigorously pressing the case.

Shamokln, Pa., August 19. The Na
talie colliery owned by the Pennsyl
vania Anthracite Coal company, was
offered at Sheriff's ,sale today. The

the attorneys for the Hostetter heirs,
of Pittsburg, and New York capitalists
finally agreed to postpone the sale un
til September. The colliery has been
lde sinco April 1, owing to a disagree
ment between the Pittsburg and New

BRUIN FOUGHT BUT
FAILED TO WIN
Old Pete Miller's Queer Experience In the
Wilds ol Potter County.
GOT HIS PRIZE MONEY AT LAST
A Two l)nys Tussle with n Ilonr nt
One End nnd Old Pcto nt tho Other
End of n itnwhldo Itopc--Ncllhcr
Able to Get Iioose-'llruiu Tnmcd
A Pltts'burg correspondent of tho
Globe-Democrat writes: In one of the
wildest parts of Potter county, Uvea
"Old Pete" Miller, n great hunter nnd
nn early settler of that part of tho
state. Pete has killed scores of lear,
deer and other largo came animals In
his time, nnd helped to exterminate
the la it herd of oik that roamed the
Pennsylvania forests. He loves to tell
of the days of long ago, when from the
summit of any hill the herds of deer
could bo seen grazing along the narrow
vnlleys. One of "Old Pete's" best stor
ies Is of his ludicrous adventuic with
a big black bear which ho undertook to
capture alive. It was In the nutumn of
'73, some time In September, when he
wnsfforccd to go Into partnership with
Bruin and remain In the company of
a shaggy enemy for two days.
"It happened In this way," said Pete.
"You see, I formed an acquaintance
with Jim Davis, of York state, who
had promised me $25 if I would capture
for him alive a large black bear. I
didn't ptomlse to get the boost for him;
but said I would think nbout the mat
ter, and let him hear from me later on.
Well, 1 thought a good deal about the
ofer, because times were hard and I
wnnted to get a new repenting rllle,
and needed the $25 real badly.
FOUND BEAR TRACKS.
"One day while I was out hunting
for some good places to set some traps
I camo across some monster bear tracks
and followed the trail to a rocky glen,
where two rapid streams met among
ragged masses of sandstone at the foot
of an Immense cliff. I found the tracks
led Into a den, and the last two or
three Impressions left on the soft clay
convinced mo that tho fellow In tho
hole was Just such a chap as Jim Dav
is wanted. I said nothing, but wrote to
Jim and asked him If he still had the
$25 and wanted the benr. Jim wrote
back right away, and told me that he
wanted the bear real bad, and would
give me $33 If I could manage to get
him a good big one, and wound up by
promising to come down in a few days
and get the brute and take him up to
"The Information made me feel as If
I had that new gun right in my hands.
I got a lot of strong raw hides, and
begun to cut straps, and after I had
about 35 feet of good rope I tied the
pieces together carefully, and then
tested the lariat by pulling on It as
hard as I could.
"The next day I took the rope and
went down to the glen and began to set
a snare for the bear. I made a slip
knot nnd spread It over the entrance
to the den, keeping It apart by means
of small limbs and so arranging the
supports that the loop would not tight
en up on the big brute till he had his
head and shoulders through It. Then
I took the other end of the strap and
fastened It to a tree trunk close to the
hole. Next morning I came down to see
what the results were, but was disap
pointed to find that the bear had been
caught In the noose' while going In
and had gone beyond sight and sound
with my rope. The end of the lariat
was still attached to the tree, and when
I gave It a hard yank I heard some In
fernal savage growling Inside. I be
gan to wonder what I was to do with
the bear when he came out, and hav
ing never captured such a large bruti
alive before, I confess that I began to
realize that there was a hard Job o'l
my hands. But I needed $25 to buy
a gun, nnd had to get the old brute
ready for the market somehow, and
I was not discouraged and begun to
lay my plans.
"Having no Idea that the bear would
come out very soon, it struck me that If
I could get the end of the rope higher
up the tree nnd securely fastened It
would be Impossible for the beast to
get away till he was reduced to a sub
missive state through a long fast. By
tugging a little on the line I managed
to set about 11 feet of slack, and, tak
ing a good hitch around my body so as
not to Impede my nrms nnd hands, I
began to climb the rough trunk of the
hemlock. It was hard work dragging
myself up hand over hand, but finally
1 reached the first branches and then
had to stop, ns the line became tight.
I cave It a hard pull or two, and was
climbing again, when I was startled by
a loud snorting, followed by a 'woof!1
'woof!' nnd out came Bruin, mad as a
tiger, and ready to fight, anything In
sight. I made all haste to get up high
er, and was trying to get the ropo fast,
when the cussed bear made a plunxe
down over the rocks, and, as the Inrlat
was still tied about my shoulders and
chest, you can Imagine what happened.
I wns Jerked off my perch and wont
crashing down through the branches,
breaking off big limbs, and the racket
I made seared the bear so that he ran
as If ho was Mire his end had come.
He mado-sjralcht for the headwaters
of;the Allegheny, with his hair land
ing on end. and as I had no time to
disengage mvself from tho rope and
branch.es. jiii a a small log had income
fnstefiea" Iu . coll of-the lariat, he had
a hard tlme'dragglng the miscellaneous
nssoitment of things at tho other end
of his hbUetvand -soon-stopped to In
vestigate matters a little and gel his
breath. He sat up and began to look
at me savagely out of tho corners of his
wicked llttlo eyes, and then, seeing that
he meant fight, I made up my mind
that the $35 would have to be'earned
hurd. I reached for my huntlng-knlfe,
which was the only weapon I had, but
to my utter consternation found that
the belt containing the knife was gone,
and, to make matters worse.my breech
es, having no support, were dangling
about my knees. The durned old lariat
was twisted nil around me, so that my
right arm wns useless. Hero was a
predicament sure, and I felt os if that
bear was going to ge me instead of mo
getting the bear. The big old fellow
was coming at me mad as a July hor
net, but, fortunately, ho came on tho
wrong Bldo of a sapling, which caught
tho rope and held him back. I grabbed
up my breeches with my left hand and
began a war dance that would hiave as
tonished a Sioux Indian. The rope wns
strong and slippery, and the treo form
ed a sort of snubbing block, and every
time Bruin came near me I dodged
around another tree and managed to
get tho rope drawn up tight, so that
the crazy hruto could not reach inc.
THE FIGHT BEGINS.
"Maybe he didn't get mad. Ho was
frothing with rage and stood up on his
hind legs nnd ripped the nlr with his
paws like a, prize-lighter, nnd woofed
nnd snorted till the woodpeckers nnd
blue Jays flew awny In terror. I would
have been glad to lly away, too, as fast
as my legs could carry me, hut tied
up as I was In that Infernal rope among
a lot of rubbish with a big benr tug
ging away at the other end of the line,
running wns out of the question.
"I felt then as If I really had no uso
for the new gun nnd tho $35, hut It
wns not the proper occasion to becomo
sad-hearted, ns there was something
there to face that was enough to make
any man brave who had any desire to
save his life.
"I struggled to get the rope loose
from my right mm, but the mnd old
brute nt the other end kept tugging nt
It like a sailor, and once when he hit
the stretched lino with his paw the
blow sent me spinning nround llko n
top nnd made mo dizzy.
"Flnnlly In his raving nnd ranting
about the old fellow got partly freed
from the trees and camo nt me like nn
uvnlanche, but the log that had got
twisted up In the rope swung around
with grent force and hit him a thump
over the head that made him groan
with pain. He then tackled the log
and knocked It silly In three rounds,
nnd while the log was trying to take
my part I ran around another tree with
my end of the rope. We were only
abut ten feet apart and brought face
to face, and the way old bruin began
to look mo over with such a comlcully
curious grin on his face made me
laugh In spite of my sense of extreme
danger. lie lacked only the wards to
tell me that I was a mean, cowardly,
but highly original 'cuss,' but afraid to
let go of tho ropo ond fight fair. He
wanted to know what in the deuce I
meant by getting both of us tangled
up In an infernal ropo nmong a lot
of branches, trees nnd logs. He began
to spar at me and evidently wnnted
me to come up and knock the chip oft
hlsshoulder. Heopened his great mouth
to show his wlcked-looklng teeth, and
then I shook my left fist at him and
shouted, "D you, keep off, or I'll
smash your ugly old nose." It was easy
for both of us to Issue challenges when
we pould not reach each other, being
kept apart by circumstances beyond
our control. After swearing at each
other In all kinds of languuge (for I
want to tell you that If ever a bear
uttered real 'cuss' words that one did),
we both began new tactics.
THE BEAR FOILED.
"To tell tho truth, I had already real
ized the seriousness of my situation and
wnnted to get clear of the predicament
In which I had been accidentally plac
ed. I tried again to get the ropo loose
nnd failing in that, owing1 to the con
stant nnd malicious tugging kept up
by bruin, I next attempted to cut thu
lino between two stones, but the con
founded rascally old fool of a bruts
thought I wns going to hit him with tho
stone I picked up, and he gave. mo a
yank that knocked me sprawling1
against a tree, nnd then he came at
mr with a ruh. I thought then that it
was all up with ine, and my fate would
certainly have been sealed, but the old
fool got on the w rong side of a tree
ngaln, and was checked bv thr rope
while I was Jerked arcund like a rubber
ball at the end of a string In March
weather. In spite of my exertions to
prevent tho additional calamity and
disgrace I lost my trousers entirely.
Just Imagine yourself In tho w lid wood3
tied to a big bear, with most of your
clothes missing, and you can form some
Idea of my feelings nt that moment.
When bruin Eaw that I hod partly
changed color, owing to the loss of my
nether garments, he besan to examine
me in a moit quizzical manner.
"If beats believe In evil spirits that
fellow must have thought I was the
nrch-dovil of be.irdom sure. He cer
tainly concluded that he wns hopeless
ly hitched up with the worst of all
hobgoblins. Hut his superstition, If ho
entertained any, did not appease his
wrath. I was getting madder and
madder too, and while standing there
half naked and shivering, I cursed my
luck and hurled anathemas first at the
bear and next at Jim Davis and his
$3?, and wished them all In hades
SIGNS OF DISCOURAGEMENT.
"After n while the bear began to
show signs of discouragement, and
'when he got a little slack would try to
get as far away from me as possible.
Then it struck me that about as wise a
thing as I could do would be to follow
him carefully In the hope of meeting
an opportunity to escape. I had to go
around a number of trees In order to
unwind the ropo, nnd as I was ell tho
time swearing at my beastly luck, the
bear watched and listened and evident
ly wondered what kind of an enchanter
I was. AVhen I finally gave him more
rope he begnn to leave slowly, but per
ceiving me followlnc him, he got mad
ngaln, stopped, sat up on his haunches
and began to scold.
"I kept my distance, always walking
close to trees that I could us as inub
lilnsr blocks In cus of emergency. Af
ter we had stumbled along for se.ral
hundred yards dragging tho pile of
brush, and I took good care to let the
bear do all the dragging, the old fellow
stopped again and looking nt me close
ly from head to foot, I Imagined I heard
him say; 'Well, if you" ain't tho biggest
fool ever I got tied to, I'll be d .'
"We soon started again, and kept go
ing until night came, when we got
tangled up cgaln In tho trees nnd brush
and by mutual agreement established
a truce and lay down to rest. Neither
one of us slept, and while 1 watched
the bear tho old brute watched me, and
all through tho night I heaid him
growling and chewing, and I hoped and
prayed that he would bo able to- chew
tho rope In two and go about his busi
ness. I tried to find some stones to use
In hnmmeiing the Inrlat In two, but un
fortunately not a stone could bo found.
Then I followed the example of tho
bear nnd began to rhew the line, but
while I had it fast In my teeth the sur
ly old brute gave It a whack with his
pnw that loosened my Jaws in their
sockets and broke some of my masti
cators and caused me to substitute
swearing for chewing mighty quick,
GETTING A DRINK.
"There was a stream of running wa
ter within sight, and by gradually un
winding the ropo I managed to reach
It, and was quenching my thirst, when
I'll be durned If tho old cuss didn't
come down to get a drink, too, and be
gan to wallow In the water; nnd ho
managed to get the rope nround tiiotlt
er tree, so that I was dragged uway
from the brook before my thirst wns
half quenched. While he was drlnk'm;
I found a stone with a sharp edge,
with which I could have severed the
rope, but the suspicious old rascal enmo
at me savagely when he saw mo plrk
up tho stone. I backed out cf his nwcli
and, taking advantage of the numer
ous stones at the edge of the run, I he-i
gun to pelt him with all my might.
Being cold and hungry, I found tho ex
ercise congenial to my uaturo at that
particular time, and never did n pro
fessional base-ball pitcher practice
throwing with ns much zeal and energy
as 1 manifested nt that time. The big
brute became terribly enraged when
any of the rocks hit him, and he snort-
