The bison of India has never been kept
long tn captlilty, except ln the case of ono
bull, which Is now In tho possession of his
highness, the maharnjah of Mysore. How
this bull came lo survive, when so many
of his fellows had succumbed. Is u very
ptetty story. Mr. Park, who captured the
animal, gives the details of the story.
When captuied the bull was supposed
to bo about 3 days old. A week arterwords
n young doe sambur, pursued by Jungla
dogs, ran Into a laborer's cottage, and was
made n prisoner. It wns decided to keep
the deer as a companion tor tho bison, nnd
the two were accordingly kept together,
though never shut up. They were fed on
milk, and then allowed to grnze, und soon
became Inseparable, Th'-y were fed at 12
o'i lock and nt 1 ln the afternoon and
seemed to know their feeding time ex
actly. When the bison was 2 years old' it was
thouirht best to lit him with a nose rone.
Ho was tto1 to a tree, his nose bored and
he was liberated. Ho ran till about the
pi omuls, and then, tor tho llrst time, he
was heard to bellow.
Art"r this he was regularly let out to
graze. The sambur would sometimes re
main he hind, but seemed to havo no dif
ficulty in tludlng him, putting up her nose
to catch the scent, nnd then starting nt
once In the right direction. The bison had
no such power, and If ever he missed his
companion, would go wondering about till
ho found her.
When the bull wns .1 years old, he was
presented to the maharnjah, and was sent
off to tho nearest railway station, some
sixty tulles away. The doe soon noticed
his absence, held up her nose ns usluil, got
tho direction, and when the bull was five
or six miles away she overtook him. He
showed tho most extreme delight, and the
two traveled happily together to Mysore.
Mr. Park saw the bull In P!1, nnd two or
three years afterwards Mr. Elliot was glad
to learn that the bison and the dear wete
still Inseparable companions nnd both ln
excellent health. Ho believes Hint the bull
would long ngo have pined away nnd died
but fnr the society of the doe. Gold, Sport

A Tennessee Pig In ,i runny lime.
La Follette, Tenn., has a most remark

bomo weeds carelessly picked up, were giv

weeds; the other tended them. Benching
home tho pigs were turned loose in tho sta.
bio yard. Tho one which had eaten the
weeds, on being released, stood still for an

around tho stnbl.. yard. Slnco then, almost
without Interruption, ho has kept on tho

A Peculiar Trio nf Enemies.
. ln July Eugene Waller, of Fox township,
had a hen that laid nn egg dally in some
brush. .Mis. Waller went to the nesi when
ever she heard biddy cackling near the
brushhenp, but day after day she was tin
able to nnd ah egg In It. As the ap
proached the nest one morning she taw a
blncksnnke with a bulge In Its body glide
Into the hushes. The next morning sho
watched the hen, and discovered that .the
blncksnakn wns walling for biddy to lay.
As soon ns the hen had begun lo cackle Ihe
snake Btole up to the nest and gobbled her
egg, Mrs. Waller filled the nest with stones
and the next day the hen found another
place In the brush nnd dropped nn egg In
ft. The nelRhbolly leplllc swallowed the
peg ns before, nnd the hen got so that she
liked lo havo ihe snake tag her around.
One afternoon Mr. Waller found the hen, a
big .blue, hawk mid the egg.lovlng black-
snake nil dead together. The hen's back
hnd been crushed, the hawk's toncne bung
out, and there were several wounds on
the sunk. The Indications were thnt Ihe
hawk had struck the hen fatally, thnt the
snake had. strangled the hawk, nnd that In
the struggle the hawk had mortally wound
ed the snake wllh Its claws and beak.
There was a bit of the snake's tall In one
of the hawk's talons, and the head of Ihe
reptile was under the hen's breast. Ex

"At my llrst meeting with Sam Brown,
Ihe famous desperado, he did mo -in honor
that few men would cure to receive," said
Wash Patker, an old-time Nevndan. "Ho
Invited himself to be my ttnvellng com
panion on 11 two days' wagon Journey. I
wns stnrllng out one morning with u wagon
and pair of horses from n little mining set
tlement known then ns Goldcrop. As I
came opposite the hotel a large man stand
ing on the vet inula hulled me and asked
if I was going to Virginia City. I answered
yes, and he said:
" '1 reckon I'll go along with you.'
" 'I'm Sam Brown,' he ndded. '.Maybe
you don't have much cnuildence In me slnco
henrln' my name, but I reckon we'll travel
along together nil right.'
"Well, there wasn't anything to be said
but 'All right. Jump aboard,' and Sam
Brown, with a carpet bag tn his hand und
his pistols bulging under his cont, came
out to the wagon and took his sent beside
me. He proved a civil enough companion,
and wo got through to Virginia City all
right, with nohody killed on the way. He
had taken along a bottle of prepared cock
tails, and I hnd a box of cigars, so that the
time passed rather sociably as we made
our Journey together.
"We went into e.lmn that nlerht at ffnmlv-
Sprlngs, about hair way to Aitglnla City,
and In the course of tho evening he told me
something of his life nnd adventures. One
thing ln particular that 1 remember wns
the way he came to start out on his career
of killing. I don't recall whether It was
In Texas or Missouri that this llrst affair
happened, but It was when he was a hulk
ing young fellow, green and chicken hentt
ed, to use his own words In telling It.
There was a certain aumhlcr In a town
where he wns staying who used to bullv
and abuse him when they came together:
everywhere and whenever tho gnmbler saw
him in a saloon he would kick him about
and drive him out of the place. Ono dav
a man unfriendly to this gambler said to
" 'Why do you stand all this abuse from
that gnmbler? Take this nlstol nnd the
next time he crowds you kill him.'
"Sam took the advice and the pistol.nml.
the next time the gambler went for him,
Instead of sneaking away and looking sor
ry he shot his tormentor dead. After he
had thus got his hand In, killing men came
easy to Sam nnd he made a long score be
fore his own time came.
"Though, ns I said, wo made our Journey
together all right. 1 knew It would tako too
little to set things to going all wrong for
me thoroughly to enjoy Sam Brown's so
ciety. 1 wasn't sorry to set him down nt
the Prlmavcntiira saloon In Virginia cltv,
whei wc took n drink together, shook
hands and went our different ways."
