Texas Paper Likens Foal to tho Talcs

(Weatherford. Texas, Herald.)
And now comes one of tho best
bunting stories of the year, lt has
leaked out that O'Neal hendy, a Wea
therford Collego student .killed a deer
with an ordinary pocket knife while
ho was at homo in Palo Pinto county
Tho story when first heard ls rem
iniscent of tho hair-raising tales of
Baron M?unchnusen, who has been
voted In literary circles as Ananias
Second. Consideration of tho circum
stances leading up to tho slaughter
of the deer by Dendy, however, show
that the affair is not so unbelievable
as lt might seem.
Accord i tig to tho story, Dendy and
some friends fell jn behind a pack of
bounds, who were in hot pursuit of
tho fleeing deer. None of the party
possessed a gun. Dendy, being the
lloetesi of foot, soon outdistanced
tho others. Tim dogs had chased the
deer until it was in a state of ex
haustion, and Dendy came upon it
whore it plunged into a creek. In tho
excitement of tho chase he produced
his pocket knife and hopped into tho
waist-deep waler and laid hold of the
exhausted deer, which could put up
but feeble resistance. Tho animal
was soon laid out by cuts lu the

WILSON TO QUIT LAW PRACTICE.
Public Interested in Possible Itoturn
to Politic?! ' Quos! loas.
Lnto dispatches from Now York
and Washington give tho following
interesting facts and speculations:
New York.-Bainbridge Colby,who
was Secrotary of Stato In President
Wilson's cabinet, has announced that
his law partnership with the former
President will terminate Deo. 31, at
the expiration of their copartnership
agreement. Tho announcement was
made from tho local olllces of Wilson
Beyond saying that the former
President ' .s turning his energies
once again to suhjects which have
long invited him," .Mfr. Colby mado
no statement as to Mr. Wilson's plans
for tho future. It was announced that
Mr. Colby would continuo tho prac
tice of law in this city.
"As a result of the steady gain in
Mr. Wilson's health during the last
few months," Mr. Colby said, "which
has been so gratifying to his friends,
ho is turning bis energies once moro
to subjects which have long Invited
him, and tho importance of which can
not be over-ostlmated."
Termination of the professional
relationship with "Ir. Wilson was
with tho keenest regret, he said, and
"Mr. Wilson's disciplined power
and ct'eetiveness as a lawyer have
been a veritable revelation, consid
ering the long interruption of his ac- 1
tivo work at the har. Ile bas taken a
most activo Interest in tho work of
tho linn and has shown the same ef
fectiveness .Ihn t he displayed in every

"Our relatinos aro of tho most cor
dial character imaginable, as they
have always been."
Speculation in Washington.
Washington.- Bainbridge Colby's
announcement of tho termination of 1
his law partnership with Woodrow
Wilson is no surprise to Washington, '
and is regarded as an added evidenco 1
that the former President is again
turning his attention to politics, par- '
ticularly thc fortunes of the Demo
cratic party in 10 2 1.
What degreo of leadership Mr.Wil
son may expect to assn me in his par
ty is probably known to himself only
at this time, and it is doubtful that
even the few who aro numbered as
his confidants can venture to speak
with any authority on the subject.
Since the whole question of tho for
mer President's political activities
depends largely upon tho condition
of his health, it may be sahl that his
physical condition ls virtually the
same as it was a year ago, and that
recent, callers report his mind as ac
tive as it evin' was.
When ho left the White House in
far worse physical condition than be
Is to-day. it was Mr Wilson's inten
tion to remain apart from politics.
But as the recent campaign drew
near he yielded to the suggest ions of
those closo about him and took some
part hy way of wrtiing letters, which
were introduced into tho campaign in
various States. At the same time Mr.
Wilson renewed bis activity in inter
national affairs and hogan keeping
himself closely advised on develop
ments in ICurope.
Various conjectures arc advanced
in political circles as to how promi
nent a part Mr. Wilson may take in
the campaign of 1914. His inten
tions are undoubtedly known only to
himself, although it is known that he
is being urged to take a prominent
part, and that bis moro favorable
physical condition is being urged up
on bim as one reason why he should.
Tho fact that M|r. Wilson has been
doing a lit'lo better than holding his
own physically, however, has led lo
exaggerated reports that ho has boon
walking about tho streets of Wash
ington unassisted, and that his dis
ability has almost entirely disap
peared. Although it can be stated
that tho former President's physical
condition is better now than lt was
the day he left tho White House, ho
still (Iuds lt necessary to placo a lim
itation upon thc time he devotes to
callers and letter writing, and de
vote? tho greater part of his time to
rest and recreation.

THE RIDDLE OF THE CYCLOPS j

-'-'tho World wnr nnd overshadowing
all other unsolved riddles of the sea
with the possible exception of the mat
ter of the Marie Celeste-the unex
plained loss of ono of tho United
States colliers, Cyclops, stands pre*
eminent, apparently ono of. the few
cases on record where the sea literally
opened and swallowed a huge boat, |
leaving not the Slightest truco of the
Vessel or her crew,
i The brief and formnl announcement
of the Navy department by Secretary
Daniels Issued at tho time that the
Cyclops was officially added to the list
of missing ships, gives tho principal
details In tho case, few and Inadequate
as they are: "It was on March 4,
1018,"* read this announcement, "that
the collier Cyclops, 10,000 tons dis
placement, put into the British West
Indies for coal. She was duo In ber
home port on March 18. Since her
departure from that port there baa
not been a trace of tho vessel, and
long-continued and vigilant search of
the entire region proved, utterly futile,
not a vestige of the wrcckogo having
"No reasonable explanation of her
strange disappearance cnn bo given.;
It is known that ono of her two en
glues was damaged, and that she was
proceeding nt reduced speed, hut If
tho engine had become disabled lt '.
would not have bad any effect upon '
her oblllty to communicate by radio.1
Many theories have been advanced, but
none that seems to account satlsfac- j
torlly for the ship's complete vanish
ment. After months of search and i
wnltlng, the Cyclops has been, finally
given up ns lost and her name stricken !
from the registry."
But these ore only the barest facts
bi the case, and make no mention of
one of the most interesting points con- j j
nected with the mystery-the fact
that the Cyclops carried as a passen- !
ger Alfred Louis Moreau Gottschalk,1
American consul general at Rio ?
Janeiro and a man who had been in-! I
strumentnl In stirring up sentiment j
throughout Brazil In favor of the ' 1
nilled forces. A number of nnony- !
mons communications threatening his
life had been received hy the consul
general prior 'to his return to tho
United States, In order to resume bia
commission In the Fifth regiment of
New York, but the most startling fact
of all was that within two weeks^
after tho Cyclops sidled and nt least
a month before she wns reported as ;
ndsslng a notice appeared in a Rio
Janeiro newspaper stating *thnt a :
requiem mass would be celebrated for j
the American consul general "lost at
sea In the American collier Cyclops."
A number of Americans In 'Brazil
noticed the announcement at tho time
nnd made Inquiries nbout It, hut the
newspaper in question disclaimed any
knowledge of the person who had in
serted the notice and Itt tie attention
was paid to lt until word was re
ceived from tho States that the collier
wns long overdue. American secret
service agents then tried to trace the
clue of tho newspaper clipping, but
the trail was too cold. The mon#who
had brought It Into the office of the
newspaper had disappeared aa com

tho failure of the vessel, seaworthy
In the extreme, and In the best shape
snve for a minor accident to one of
her engines, was that she had either
been sunk by a German submarine op
erating In West Indian waters or that
she had been captured and taken into
Germany In order ? that tho central
powers might have the benefit of the
large cargo of manganeso <vhlch she
was earrylng. One of tho first acts
of the American authorities ofter the
signing of the armistice, therefore, was
to examine all German r .cords deal
ing with naval operations during the
period of tho war. But, vhlle refer
ence was found to tho sinking of
every vessel which had be i torpe
