. A BUFFALO HUNT. , j
A Cieat Herd Chaaed Hundred, ef Miles
. and Thonaanda of Animals Killed.
' Montana Cor. N. T.Han. 1
People lltrlnx near Ulon live, Montana,
wore surprised the other day by hearing a
loud tramping, and through the clondt ol
dust kigked up they discovered a herd of
buffalo making at a mad pace for the river.
The animals appeared to be well nigh rua
down, but many of tbera were furious. Al
they came to the bank of the Tellowstoni
they plunged in pell-mell one oa top of thi
other, and for a time It looked at though
many of them would be killed, but nearly
all got out unnjured. They had hardly
reached the other aide when a yelling,
swearing crowd of white men and Indian!
came np on foam-covered horses. They
paused here long enough to get refresh
meet, and then returned the chase. -
Tbrre were four or five hundred buffalo,
In the herd, and they were making fot
British America as fast as their Ie.,t woul.
carry them. From the hunters tt was learned
that the hunt be an down In Dakota, on thi
Cannon Ball River, where not less thai
5,000 of the anlmalt were (ound grating,
A few ot the men had followed them thi
entire distance. but although thi
party that passed bpre numbered only
thirty, 1U members estimated that from
first to lost three or four hundred meg
had taken part In the slaughter. Somi
of the men who started out with th
original party had remained behind a
various polntt to ee&ure the hidea, and
others, who only Joined In for the sport,
bad dropped out after satifylng them,
eelee. with the chase. TbeVaptdlty witk
which these magnificent animals art
,UugVieraV; shown by the fact that thi
hunters patting through here said they
would have the hidea of tht remnant o
the herd before reaching the boundary
Probably this It one of the latt big buffa
lo hunt, that will ever occur In thla
country. The Indian, now that he la as
sured of enough to eat at the agen
cies, la at reckless tn his slaughter of the
bison as the while man. He teemt to
consider the game as nearly extinct, and
he goes In recklessly with the Idea of
having all the sport he can before the
end It reached. The wanton destruction
of thlt herd baa caused great Indigna
tion throughout the entire section tra
versed, but as It see in i to be the policy
to exterminate the bison nothing will be
done about it.

Uncle Jerry he would hardly forgive. If
If his mil name were used, In view of what
folio wa carted leather for many years for
the "swamp" people, his stand being In
Jacob street, a busy little thoroughfare not
much known to those outside the great
center of the New York letaher trade.
Just as honest at the day la long wai
TJucle Jerry and as truthful at need be;
but aa full of fun "at an egg la of meat."
Hit boylah prankl have always stuck to
bint. One 8undy, when bit borsea and
carta were cared for and at rest, be took it
Into bit head to go Into the oonutry and
hear tht birds alng and watch the flower,
grow, lor he wa. born in the country and
bis old habits stuck to him. Aa he started
for home be spied a hornet's nest. He
knew what a hornet's nett wat; he had
fought hornets o.'ten enough when a boy,
and he Immediately saw that thlt nest be
longed to the yellow-tipped variety the
really Here warriors of the family. The
n -al wot large and of perfect form, ai-d
bung on a branch within reach.
Uncle Jerry waited until the hornets bad
settled down pretty well, most of them
having gone Inside through the only pat
gateway, the hole in the bottom. Then hi
quietly crept up and With a wad of paper
plugged Uie bole, cut off the twig which
laid the nest awl started with it for hit
borne in the lower part of the city. It It
safe to say that a host of the people he met
hadn't an Idea as to what he was carrying.
He got down by Trinity Church Just aa the
evening aervice was over and the large
congregation was coming out. The old
spirit of fun got hold of blm: he quietly
onplujgea that hornets' nest, gave It such
a vigorous shake as would have maddened
any set of hornet, dropped It right among 1
the crowd and Innocently walked. Well,
boyt, to out it short, it la perfectly safe to
bet that few church eon rregatloni have
ever dispersed in a great u- hurry.

It a long time. The woman failed, to pay

the mother came and took the child away.
It hat since died, and she la trying to keep
me-from knowing where its death occurred
In order to keep me out of Uie insurance.
If I would get that, however, It would pay
me for the child's board."
At the finished speaking the woman took

which accompanied her, saying) "This la
one of my boarders."
"How much do you charge a week to
care for the babies?" waa asked of ber. -
"Two dollars," was the reply, "and I do
all their washing."
"Are tbey mostly the children of work
"No, not all. The little one that died

you insure them?"
"Ho that when they die on my hands I
