Husiiuehanna, Oct. 2fi. That famous
cat, which has been the constant com
panion of in engineer on the Delaware
and Hudson mad for some yenrs, nar
rowly escaped an Inglorious death on
Saturday. For a week past the en
gineer and lireman had noticed a largo
eagle sitting In a hemlock tree, near tho
Hacks at South Windsor. Whenever
It saw the cat It would Hash Its wings
and tbi'W signs of anger. Tho esit
would sit upon the running board of
the locomotive, paying no attention to
the huge bird. On Saturday morning,
when the train left Lansboro, tlio cat
crawled out upon the pilot of the loco
motive and prepared for an enjoyable
sun bath. Hounding a curve near
South Windsor tho engineer noticed
the eagle sitting In his accustomed
I nook in the old hemlock tree. When
the locomotive was Just opposite the
tree the eagle, with a loud scream,
dashed down upon the pilot nnd fierce
ly attacked the cat. which at once put
up a good light. For several seconds
thrro wan a battle royal. The eagle
made a half ilozoi attempts to carry
away the cet bodily, but each time the
cat would make a savage onslaught on
the bird with teeth and claws, nnd tho
air was full of feathers. As the train
dashed ahead the two men In the cab
looked upon the strange battle with
much apprehension, fearing tho result.
Thowhlstlewnsblown.but neither com
batant noticed the sound In the least.
Tlie engineer armed himself with a
bar of Iron and started out upon the
running board to aid Ills pet, but before
he reached the scene of action tho cat
had torn a great hole in the eagle's
throat, and tho bird was In Itn death
struggle. It was curried into the loco
motive tender, where It died In a few
minutes. The cat crawled Into tlni
cab, considerably tho worse for wear,
but still In the ring. The cat no long
er ventures outside the cab.

GANDER DANCES TO MUSIC.
A lively air played on a violin vill al
most inarviably set a Hock of wild
geese frantic with delight. Last week
at a family reunion In Lansboro there
was a curious performance by a flock
of geese. After dinner the hostess en
tertained the guests assembled on the
lawn with music from an accordion. A
lloek of geese were feeding in tho road
Just 'below the house, and, with out
stretched necks, answered back with
loud notes of satisfaction. Soon a
white gander began dancing a lively
JU. keeping good time to the music.
For several minutes he kept this up, to
the great delight of the company. The
ccpetlmcnt was tried several times a
few days later and the tones of the ac
cordion never failed to set the old gan
Bill Tyler, of the Cascade, a few days
since went up Into the mountains to
gather some sasafras, when he encoun
tered a huge black snake. The reptile
w.s close to a large rock when he
found him and the rock was Hanked by
a log. Tyler noticed a large hole at
the angle of the rock and log, for which
the snake made on being surprised.
Seeing a large stone he cast it at the
snake, grazing Its body. On receiving
the blow it turned like lightning and
sprang at .Its antagonist. Tyler stum
bled over some bushes, and the snake
colled about him in an instant. A pine
knot was close to the man's hand, and
reaching for It lie struck the snake sev
eral sharp blows on the head. The
latter turned and ran his head Into the
hole, dragging Tyler close lo it. Tho
man braced his feet against the rock,
hut could not, extricate himself, as the
snake had Its body around his left leg,
and, as he afterward said, "was Just
squeezing the life out of It," Tyler
was twenty minutes in this predica
ment, until he finally thought of his
knife, and, getting It out of his pocket,
jabbed it into the snakes body. After
a few cuts the snake became enraged
and began to wriggle Its head out of
tho hole. Tyler say that his time was
short and made a lively attack on tho
snake's neck, severing It. The instant
It was severed the neck rose convul
sively In the air. Tyler fainted away,
and he thinks he must have remained
in that condition for over an hour.
When he regained consciousness the
snake was still colled about his leg, but
dead. He carried It home, and it
measured seven feet long without the
IT HEALED QUICKLY.
At Brandt, October 16, Sylvester Car

his tight leg was crushed below the

CALIFORNIA'S KIIUAT SI.E.
Lnrger Than New York, Pcniiijivn
uiu, Michigan nnd Connecticut.
It is hard to comprehend the extent
of California, but here are a few fig
ures that will help.
New York's area 49,170
Pennsylvania's area 45,215
Michigan's area (J9.915
Connecticut's area 4,990
Total area of the four states 15S.290
California's area 15t,3
California's excess over these four
states Is 70 square miles. While the
states mentioned have 217 counties
California has but 54. California Is
770 miles long; Its extreme breadtn is
330 miles, its least breadth ISO miles,
and its coast line exceeds 7C0 miles.
California has on an average a little
over 2932 square miles to each county,
or over three times as much as the
average for each county In New York
over four times as much as a Penn
sylvania county, a Michigan county,
or one in Conntcticut. If California
were transplanted to the Atlantic t mat
the coast line would reach from Bos
ton, Mnss., to Savannah, Ga thus
covering the sea coast of 11 stat03 that
are swept by the cold polar currents
from Hudson Bay.
