Tricking a -Game Warden.
When a game warden bought seven
pounds of meat and paid a dollar a
pound for it he thought lie was get
ting some pretty convincing evidence
against a man in Herkimer county
whom he supposed to be a chronic
violator of the game law. The pro
tector found this particular piece of
meat In an icehouse one hot August
day, and he spotted it for venison.
?What will you rake foo that chunk
of meat?" he asked the owner.
"That's a tender piece of meat," re
plied the woodsman, with a wink at
the stranger, "and meat is dear way
hack up here. I wouldn't part with it
for less 'n a dollar a pound."
"Well, give me a pound"
"Nope; couldn't do that, it would
spile the piece for cookin' to do that"
The game warden had to take the
whole thing, and he paid $7 for it, sat
isfied that he had caught one of the
^worst game law violators in the Adi
rondacks. Down to Albany he sent
the meat for the forest, fish and game
commission to analyze, to prove it ven
ison. "But it wasn't It was veal.
The backwoodsmen tell the story as
one of the best jokes ever played on a
game protector.-New York Tribune.
Columns of St. Mark.
Two memorable granite columns,
known as the columns of St Mark,
brought from the Holy Land ta 1120
and standing In front of the quay and
landing steps of the Piazzeta, have
been associated with the fortunes of
Venice for many years. At first they
lay prostrate for a long time, while
no one would undertake to raise them.
But a reward offered by the doge at
length induced one Nicolo Barratiero
(Nick-the Blackleg) to offer his serv
ices. He succeeded and claimed as
his reward the privilege of carrying
on between the columns games of
chance, elsewhere prohibited by law.
To neutralizes this as much as possible
lt was enacted that all public execu
tions should take place on the same

ries a fine figure of St Theodore, the
J p?tron saint of the city, who stands
upon a crocodile and with sword and

?Venice is "Defense, Not Defiance."
