When the (Sown Is on the chin.
And the Rold gleam In the hair,
When Lhe birds their sweethearts win
And champagne is In the air,
Xove is here, and lore is there,
Love is welcomed everywhere.
Bummer's cheeic too soon turns thin, -
Days grow briefer, sunshine rare; 1
Autumn from his cannesin
Blows the froth of chase despair; '
Love is met with frosty stare, ,
Cannot bouse 'neath. branches bare,
When new red Is In the rose
And new life is in the leaf.
Though love's Maytlme be as brief
As a dragon fly's repose,
Never moments oome like these,
Bo they heaven or hell who knows 1
All too soon comes winter's prlef,
Spendthrift love's false friends turn foes;
Bof tly comes old ape, the thief.
Steals the rapture, leaves the throes;
Love bis mantle round him throws
"Time to say good-by; it snows."
J. Russell Lowell.
Far up in the Second canyon of theYel- (
lowstone, where tho river boils and tears
along through a narrow gorge hemmed in on
either side by lofty basaltic walls, lives a !
ptranga character named "Frontier Jim."
Jim Ferguson is Ma true birthright, but so
long is it since the old fellow has heard his
true baptismal title uttered by human lips
that he has almost forgotten it himself. This '
old mountaineer has lived for many decades
In the isolated spot be calls home, isolated i
n?itil tho railroad pushed its "vray up the can
yon and opened a gateway into the great
Yellowstone National park. And now that
civilization has found him out, still it is
probable that Frontier Jim will live and die
a hermit among tho crags and peaks that
have been his companions for so many long
I discovered Frontier Jim some seven or
eight years ago; or, rather, I should have
said that he discovered mo. It was about tho
fall of 1880 that I chanced to bo knocking
about in that part of the United States, and
whilo riding along through that sahliino
chasm of nature known as tho Second can
yon, I happened to cast my eyes upward and
was astonished and surprised to seo perched
high In tho uir on tho rocky walla overhang
ing tbo -deep-abyss, a hunter's- rudo cabin. I -immediately
dismounted end -allowing cay
use to wander nt will, picking hero and thero
at tho scant but succulent herbage which
cropped out -between tho rocks, I lay down
on tbo grass-plot near wiiero tho waters of
tho augrv Yellowstone wero boiling and
fixed my eyes on tho house above mo won-
demur what manner of mortal had located
hiB abode in such a wild, lonesome spot.
While gazing in thoughtful amazement at
tho structure I was startled nearly out of my
wits by tho. sound of a human voice almost in
my ear, remarking in good English:
"Purty high up, ain't it, strangerr
1 sprung to my feet and cast an anxious
esyoat-myxino resting against a rock a few
"Don't get frightened, stranger; I ain't
a-going to hnrt your purty hair."
I saw that my new acquaintance- was not
a savage, and that ho was not desirous of
shedding my blood either, so I laughingly
answered his Crat question, and admitted
that the cabin was "purty high up."
"That's my homo up yonder," said he,
pointing a long, bony finger at tho cabin,
"an' if you'll justs.ling astride your cayuse
on' follow mo I'll soon land you on top o' the
bluff an' near tho shack."
I mounted and followed my guido, who,

u x .. ..v,, . b
ders, along breakneck paths and corkscrew I
trails, and again, stop by step, up steep,
almost impossible inclines, finally landed mo
high and dry at tho door of tho shack. With
n wavo of his hand and an obsequious bow,
ho kicked tho door open with tho too of his
boot and bade mo enter. I crossed tho
threshold and found tho interior as I antici
pated. A brace of powder horns and a pair
of antiquated flintlocks hung against fho
wall, deer horns, elk heads and buffalo honii
wero suspended from pegs, and tho finest
pair of mountain sheep horns I had over seen
was nailed over tho doorway. I had not
learned the Christian title of my new ac
quaintanco yet, but mado bold to put the
" James Ferguson I go by back in tho
Kfcates." said ho: "but out hero among tho
Snakes and Bannocks and tho fewwhitesl i
Bee. they call mo Frontier Jim."
Then I know that my host was no less a
personage tlian the celebrated hunter, trap
per, scout and guido told of by the early I
oxplorcrs who had crossed the continent
years before seeking an overland route to the
Pacific ocean. Frontier Jim was indeed a
strange mixture of humanity. He had seen (
many other white men before 1 chanced to '
Btumblo upon Iriiu, a majority of whom had
Etopped at his cabin to rest a day and to ob
tain information regarding tho surrounding
country. Jim had always been on friendly
terms with the Bannocks, Snakes and other .
Indians who wore generally hostilo to the
palefaces; but, to own tho plain truth, their
hostility or frioudliness wore matters of in- I
dhTorenco to tho hunter, as every recukin
who knew lrim had a wholesome respect for
Jim sola smootnuoro gun, as Vkenas an un-
disguiMjd admiration for the style in which
the old hunter handled his piece. Tho scout
understood my inquiring glance nt this once
formidable weapon hanging harmlessly from
U. peg, and stepping over ho took down tho
ancient piece of artillery and proceeded to
explain its beauties and fine points to mo
without delay. He pointed out tho admir
able flint action, tho sighting apparatus and
dwelt at length upon its shooting qualities.
"But, niy friend," interrupted I, "you aro

frontier Jim persuaded mo to be his guest
for aday, and that afternoon, just beforo
dusk, called my attention to an object stand
ing out in bold relief on a sharp, jagged
point about i yards away and upward.

place. The Eheep mado one bound far out

thot mark and found a 45 caliber hole
through the skull just below the horns. The

It by for future use, making mo a present of
That night, while sitting around a cheer
ful blaze booming from a 6 by 10 fire place,
Frontier Jim catching my gaze resting upon
a monster bear skin lying on the floor, said:
9ga-isU-X2li 4hi2rzj?jf thatJuiJe.XwilL
Over in those two corners youTl 6e a pair of
smaller skins, and hanging against the wall
another hide. The big one belonged to an
old she devil of a silver tip, and them in the
corner wero her pups. The hide on the wall
belonged to my dog, who was killed in a
scrimmage with all three o' them cusses. It
all happened not twelve months ago, when I,
like the rest o' the boys, got all daft on the
Lost Cabin mine, said to be over in the
Big Horn mountains, just loaded full
o' gold. A fellow came here one
morning from over the range, and said he
knew where the Lost Cabin was. I agreed to
go with hiu to hunt it up, and so we set out
together and traveled for a week in com
pany, when one night would you believe itl
tho tarnal cuss stole everything in camp,
even to the blanketa on my bed, and I never
seen him again. I started back home to this
very cabin, and over on the eastern edge of
the park in the Hoodoo mountains I ran
upon a she silver tip, who was knocking and
rolling her cubs about in a sort o' clearing.
Here was a chance, and I let old Sal speak at
once. .Now, stranger, there aint no use in
any tenderfoot's saying that a bear is danger
ous and bent on killing tomebody. Tisn't
so, for a grizzly, or silver tip, or cinnamon,
will ran as quick as a rabbit unless you pester
them and get in their way. Tve bagged a
good deal & bear meat in my day, and know
I they are cowardly brutes and wilt not fight
unless you force them. When I fired at tho
big girl she turned tail and ran like the very
OJd Nick was after her. One cub took to a
t tree, my dog grabbed another, and it was a
lively tussle for a few minutes, but Shell-
, bark (Shollbark was my dog, you know)
' wolL that dog soon got onto its windpipe
and that ended the cnb. Now, it happened
that cub No. 2, after tho death of its mate,
slid down tho tree stern foremost
, (you know, a bear always comes down a tree
hindquarters first), and started like a streak
o' lightning after its mother, all the while
uttering the most piteous howls you ever
heard. Tho dam caught these wails and
came back to the spot again like a locomo
tive undor full head o' 6team. I'd seen a
bear before under similar conditions and
know it was best for me to keep oat o the
way. I jumped behind a tree out o' sight,
and just then the old sbo devil came bowling
along, hammer and tongs. My dog didn't
understand tho situation as true as I, for ho
was in a death grapple with the cub just as
the dam came up, and paid not tho least bit
o' attention to her. With one wipe o' her
paw she laid Shellbark out and then I com
menced business. You know I had my Win
chester along with me, and while she was
nosing over tho cub I let her have one back
o' tho neck. She paid no attention to this
messenger, so I sent another which clipped
her ear and the crown o' her head. Upon
thi3 eho raised her nose, sniffed the air and
scented me at once. Just then I fired at her
again and caught tho beast in the .brisket.
She wiped the spot crazily with her paw,
and, dropping on all fours, came at mo with
a sort f shuflhncr cait that I knew mean t
business and no mistake. Lot mo give you a

pointer right hero. It's a mistake most people
nave who thinks a bear cornea at a fellow
standing on his hind legs. No man ever saw
a bruin attack in that way. They always
drop on all fours and roll or shamble toward
you, and when they get to closo quarters
then fhoy do riso on their hind legs and pro
ceed to hug or strike. And let me tell you
another thing: A bear, when he or she is on
business, walks on his fore legs, rolls or wags
his head from side to side and pays no atten
tion whatever to powder or load. I fired my
last shot at this old monster when she was
within three feet of me; but, seeing that it
had no effect, I threw away the gun and
whipped out my long hunting knife, ready
for a death struggle. Without a pause or the
least bit of hesitation she came straight on
with jaws wido open and paws raised; then,
just as bho mado a lunge at me, the beast tot
tered and trembled and fell back on the
ground as dead as a door naiL Would you

thought surely my
tamo had come. When sua lay over on her
sido and didn't move, I plunged a knife into
her ribs two or three timos, but there wasnt
a quiver. Then I skinned tho brute, her two
cubs and my poor Shellbark, and them are
tho skins you seo over there." J. ii, T. Par

Words of Politeness.
Ono wno has the germ of true politeness in
his heart can never be boorish, and our aim
should bo to niako the foundation of courtesy
solid; then there will bo uo cracks in its
superstructure. With a kind heart, the faco
spoaks tho words of politeness and tho hands
act tho courtesy. Wo want no counterfeits,
but the real thing. No "thanks," that coma
out like words from a rubber stamp, but the

For a Severe Burn.
Tho pain caused by being severely burned
may be almost instantly relieved by apply
ing a mixture of strong, fresh, clean lime
water mixed with as much linseed oil as it
will cut Before applying, wrap the burn in
cotton wadding saturated with the lotion.
Wet as often as it appears dry, without re
moving cotton from burn for nino days,
when a now skin will probably havo formed.

THOMAS STEVENS GIVES j THE3 RE
SULTS OF HIS OBSERVATIONS.
fttiU a Difference Between the Ideal
ana the BeaV 3XlIshne of the Aver
age Mohammedan Statistics Which
Prove a Very Cold Fact.
As a boy at the Sabbath school tho averaga
mnn has been taught to drop bis nickels into
the contribution box for the conversion of
the heathen. The poor missionaries were out
in those wild benighted countries, risking
their lives and suffering untold hardships for
the purpose of gathering heathens and idola
ters into the fold. For these he has gone
without chewing gum weeks at a time in or
der to contribute money and has done it with
scarcely a whimper. He has grown up with
anldeal missionary and on ideal missionary
life vividly pictured on his fancy.
In tho coarse of time his ship conies over,
and he decides to take a trip around tho
world. He visits Asia Minor, India, China
and Japan. The first missionary settlement
be comes to he finds it as different from his
long cherished ideal conception as cheese is
different from chalk. The traveler is as
tounded. "Why, bless my sool!" he gasps, "these
missionaries are living in decent Opuses, eat
decent food and are as safe here as if they
were in New York."
A RASH COXCZXJ810N.
He finds that ho Las been nursing a de
lusion all these years. Asa general tiring
ho doesnt stop to thick that the delusion has
been all his own, that he has pormitted his
childish conceptions to remain unchanged.
Instead of this, he jumps to tho rash con
clusion that foreign missions ore an imposi
tion on the crtdulons pablio at home, and
when ho gets back ho has no hesitation in
The first impressions of a man who has not
taken tho trouble to correct infantile impres
sions before starting out are very apt to be
something hko this; but, as a matter of fact,
tho missionaries do the very best they can.
Tho trouble lies, not with tho men and women
who go forth in obedience to an honest
yearning to save everybody, but with the in
nate cussedness of the people whom they wish
Tho mnlishness of tho average Mohamme
dan, lor instance, when it comes to being
saved, is something appalling to a person
who has his eternal welfare in view. Tho
Mohammedan is as stubborn, or stubbornpr,
than the Christian evon about forsaking hii
own religion for another. Few Mohamme
dans can understand tho pervorseness of
Christians in refusing to como over bodily
to Tslmrmm and be saved.
HAUD TO CONVEHT.
On tho other hand, it seemed to me that to
beard the Mussulman in his own country and
try to convince him that any other religion
is better than his own must be a good deal
hko trying to pull a S00 pound pig through a
knot hole. Tho Mohammedan regards the
Christian missionary much as we should le
gard a Persian mollab who should come over
here and proselyto for the religion of the
Prophet As a matter of fact I think the
mollah would have the advantage. A Per
sian mollah in his flowing robes and big
white turban, prostrating toward Mecca and
sighing away down into his haols, is a pict
ure not devoid of a certain amount of fasci
nation. I havo 6een mollahs in Persia who,
if they would only mnko themselves np and
come over to, say, Boston, and start up a re
vival, would convert lots of people by the
mero magnetism of their appearance and tho
strange fervor of their devotions.
It is a cold fact that among the teeming
millions of Asia I discovered twico as many
Christians who had embraced Mohammedan
ism as I did Mussulmans who hod entered
into the Christian fold twice as manyl To
coroo down to actual statistics, compiled at
odd times oa I went from country to country,
I figured up one Mohammedan who had ex
perienced a change of religion and two
Christians. There may bo more than this in
tho whole world, perhaps, but these are all I
obtained positive evidence of. All three were
very interesting cases from the standpoint of
an outside party. Their experiences were
also interesting to "themselves. Thomas Sto

Shortly boforo wo left La Guayra, on tbo
day of which I am writing, tho sky became
overcast and threatened rain, so that wo
were in some doubt of beiug able to reach
Caracas until lato at night. Long beforo w o
had climbed one-quarter of tho way from
the sugar plantations on tho margin of tho
sea to tho elevation, all covered with coffeo
and cocoa groves, the train ran into a den3Q
mist which rolled in fom over tbo Carib

length of the train of only four cars, and,
therefore, gained but a faint and tantalizing
idea of tho wonderful beauty of tho scenery
along the line of our travel.
Up and still upward tho engino puffed and
epouted like a panting monster, drawing
after it the train, which wound in and out,
twisting and turning, now describing tho
letter V, now doubling itself into an S,
slowly, cautiously on and up, painfully glid
ing like a wounded snako; now running into
tunnels, then out along tho verge of giddy
precipices, at ono turn heading back toward
the sea, then around the face of a magnifi
cent promontory, again plunging back into
tho narrower recesses of great gorges and
canyons; passing over trestles, through deep
cuttings, along the narrow top of steep em
bankments; onward and upward up from
the sea the cocoa palms, banana plantations
above tho cocoa grove and coffee planta
tions, shaded by beautiful flowering trees
np to barren mountain stesps overgrown
with stunted bushes above tho timber line,
through a desolate land of tho cactus, mi
mosse, and bitter aloes, that stand stork and
leafless and storm stripped. Look aa wo
