gjV, around tho
rTaloons and tho "blind Users" In To-coma,
Wash., not long ultice, were two
Won who attracted conoUWrablo attention
from tho habitues ot theso places,
tlioiiL'li nnnarentlv Inclined to avoid It.
They wero two rather handsomo hut
weather-beaten men who had just returned
Irom Alaska, where they had
been employed by a nyndlcato of capitalists
on a prospecting tour of sorno
sort. Tlio larger one, who was considerably
over six fet, and would weigh
two hundred and fifty pounds, was of
a retiring, almost hullen disposition,
but wild and reckless when drinking,
whllo tho smaller one was moro Inclined
to bo communicatlvo In his cups,
They wero both college graduates, apparently,
but seemed to bo "black
Ono night a crowd of young fellows
had been drinking -some, and tho two
men mentioned having b:en present
wero Invited to join them. The
nnnlcr one, known as Johnny, did,
but tho ona called Thomson declined
and walked out In tho course of tlio
evening a good many stories were told,
and when one of tho boys wound up on
a small bear story It got Johnny started.
"1'eoplo as a rule know very littlo of
tho real characteristics of the bear,"
snld he. "Some are almost harmless,
whllo some are simply terrible. I havo
hunted tho brown bear In Huropo and
tho black bear in this country, but I
never saw ono of cither killed In my
life that wasn't a coward."
"Tho grizzly certainly isn't a coward,"
remarked ono of the boys present.
"No," was tho response, "but while
tho grizzly Is a terrible brute, It will
not hunt up a human being for tho
moro pleasuro of lighting and killing
lilm. Tho most terrible animal of
the tribe und tho only ono I regard as
the gcnulno ferox, is tho
polar bear of tho north. Nearly
all other bears are primarily vegetarians
although omuivorous. They love
vegetables when they can get thorn.
Hut n polar bear loves only meat, nud
meat ho will have, To sco tho gluttonous
creatures hunting and eating fish,
from the freshest to the most oltcnslvo
and decayed carrion, Is enough to giro
an idea of what thoy are,
"One stinging cold day last winter at
our furthest northern point, wo wero
waiting to bo taken back to a camp,
some hundred miles or mora south of
us. Tho Usquimaux wo had engaged
had not arrived, so while we wero waiting
for thorn with their dogs and
sledges, wo wore killing time In a littlo"
impiovlsnd snow hut. Thomson had been
Browing moro Impatient every minute,
und had been drinking moro brandy
than I thought desirable. And I began
to fear ho would punish the Ksqulmaux
and cause soma trouble when thoy ar-lived.
Presently, just outside, of our
hut, there camo an lmmonso whito bear
nosing around. As long n wo choso to
stay In tho hut we were perfectly safe,
but Thomson's anger now turned Itself
loose upon tho bear. As often as wo
went out thcro stood tho ropulslvo
creature, and, after each tour of Inspection,
Thomson would ttiko nnotlier
drink and curso tho hour. At last he
sworo he was not going to stand It any
longer, but would go out thero and
wring its neck. With this ho grasped
his bowle kulfo and walked
out. I called to hlra and begged him to
stop, but I might as well havo been
talking to tho wind.
"I hurriedly put on my wraps, and by
tho time I got out, ho was down cloto
to tho bear. You know what n magnificent
specimen of physical manhood
lie Is. Well, you ought to havo seen
him then, Kvcry musclo was like a
bar of steel, and stimulated by tho
brumly hu had been drinking, ho was
at tho summit of physical manhood.
Becing mo approaching with my rlilo
hu warned mo to keep 'hands off,' as
this was to be u duel and no unfair advantage
should be taken, I knew him
too woll to cross him, and besides I
might hit him it I shot, so I simply
waited and watched tho dual.
"Thomson tried In every way to get
around bohlud tho bear, but tho bear

would tttrru and faco 1ilm, no matter
how quick ho was. Ho saw this would
tiro him out, so ho changed his plan.
Walking up In front of his enemy, ho
would taunt lilm, and then, springing
away, avoid his, stroke. When tho
bear would drop on nil fours to como
at him Thomson would jump to ono
sldo to closo In, and then up tho bear
would go on his hind feet again, In n
spirit of recklessness Thomson stopped
this dilatory play by walking right
Into tho bear's arms and cutting a
gash In his abdomen, Such a
howl of rngo I uevor heard, and, of
course, alt the claws ou each ot tho
benr's paws sunk Into Thomson's back
and toro onlward. Ills llcsh, as well
as his clothing, seemed to bo furrowed
hung 'cm there that you may find 'em
easier then you would In tho barrel."
Wall, my other half took 'cm all down
and when ho como to tho boots ho
looked sorter sheepish. Ilowsumcver,
It worked well hnngln' things up so,
and I was congratulating myself highly
that by my mildness ho wuzdoln' better,
but lawful heart. It's dretful easy
to get faUo Impressions, and I found
I had got hold of one.
Wall, I reflected und meditated and
one inornln' I said to llcnjnmln, says I:
"Do you remember those sticks you cut
tno about three feet lung and ns largo
rouud as a ptucll, to mako a rustic
fence for my llower garden, long beforo
wo wuz united?"
"Vcs," says ho.
"Wall," says I, lookln' real sweet and
Rinilln', "I would llko about a dozen of
'cm, now, If It uln't too much trouble."
"Sartlnly," says ho. "I5o you
"No," says I.
"Wall, I can cut 'cm jest as well as
not, but I snuin It I can see what you
want of 'cm."
I didn't feci no call to explatcrato
and tny beloved went out to get 'cm,
deeply studyln' as to what I wanted a
dozen (.ticks for. After he got them I
went upstairs, hunted up an old whito
skirt and proceeded to business. I
stripped up cloth and fastened on to
thoso sticks till I hod a dozen nice
lookln' flags, and taklu' advantage of
his steppln' over to the neighbor's I sot
sail round tho garden and door-yard a
plantln' a flag wherever there wuz anything
layln" round. When I had finished
there wuz about ten on 'em a
wavln' In tho breeze. Thoy looked
dretful pretty a shukin' and a blowlu'.
I wuz reminded of a village of tents.
Soma n uz qulto near together and bomo
wuz far apart llcforo a great whllo 1
noticed my other half comln homo and
cycin' them flags as if they wuz so
many interlopers. IIo come in tho
Iiouro try In' Tory hard to keep calm and
I u uz doin' ditto.
Presently ha said: "Seems to me,
Kuldah, it's sorter cool. Hadn't you
better shut tho end door?"
"Sartlnly," says I.
Wnll, I delate, to goodness, if ho
hadn't stuck ono of them flags through
tho handlo of my dish pan which 1 had
out thero sunnln'. I j"st laughed then
and Dcujamlu did likewise. IIo told
mo in confidence that when ho cut them
sticks ho mistrusted I wuz goln' to cut
somo onllkcly caper with 'cm.
It wuz moro than exprisln' to sco
how much notice folks took of those
Hags when passln' by, and I could hoar
'em Qsldii' each other what they wuz
awavin' for. I kept 'era faithfully
stuck wherover ther wuz anything lay-In'

handy for llcnjamiii, too, but somehow
as it got out what they wuz used
for, ho got sorter out of paticuco with
'cm, and soma ho throw iu the pigpen
mid some hu put in tho stove, llo
folks would know lits business
better by them flags then If ho advertised
In the Shawmy News, for somo
folks novcr read advertisements, and
anybody with eyes could sco them a
wavln' und flutterlu without wearln'
Ilowsumovcr, th"y did a dretful sight
ot good and I hatu't had much call to
tear up old shirts to uso for petticoat
government. I ain't no liklu' for henpecked
government. Thcro Is a vast
difference betweon tho tew; as much so
as in tho tropics of tho Arctio ocean
compared to the frlgldnoss of Africa.
It Is jest llko a slight ot hand performance,

I havo taken notice for considerable of
a spell that women are moro apt to And
fault then the men folks, and I arrlv to
this conclusion some tlnio ago, that It
ain't because thoy don't havo jost as

ANECDOTES OF SPURQEON.
He Conlil Not l'rtach With Ills VHrVt
Lookloy Rt lflm.
Among tho oloud of apocryphal anecdotes
concrcnlng Mr. Spurgeon, let ina
record two for whloli I can personally
vouch. At tho Surrey Gardens Muslo
hall, If I mistake not, in tho year 1850,
where I hoard Thackeray's four lectures
on tho Georges, and whero Spurgoon
preached regularly Ixiforo ths
was built,' thoro woro Trench
windows opening out Into the grounds.
Tho placo was crammed ono hot Sunday
morning, and theso windows wero
many of them left open, so that a frlngo
of the congregation was standing lialf
a and half out of the great building.
Newcomers gradually cdgld somo of
tho others on to tho floor, somo of whom
remained covered, as they wero just,a.ed
in doing so long, and no longer, as their
standing ground was In the gardens.
Theso unfortunates Mr. Spurgeon spoko
ut thus from tho pulpit beforo beginning
his sermon, in an easy, friendly
manner, but iu those magnificent tones
which vibrated through tho building:
"I regret to see that there aro soma
present who aro so unaccustomed to aU
tend public worship that they havo
quite forgotten it Is the praotlco to tako
off their hats." This I heard, and shall
never forget its effect In tho immediate
doflling of malo headgear and in a sort
of smothered hum of amused approval
from tho crowd.
Another personal oxpcrlcnce of Mr.
Spurgeon was at tho Crystal palace,
whero ho preached to 23,000 people.
Seated near to the pulpit, I observed
Mrs. Spurgeon tako her placo Just
her husband appeared, and that
sho was vlsibty atTeoted by tho mighty
concourse of souls, all with upturned
faces and fixed gaze upon one man, and
all about to be thrilled to tho coro by
that man's impassioned appeals to them
to bo saved alivo. While Mrs. Spurgeon
was concealing her emotion as best sho
might In other words, dealing furtively
and shyly with her pocket handkerchief
I saw tho pastor beckon far off with
his forefinger to one of tho deacons, a
stout and solemn grayhalred man, of
rubicund complexion, and with a defect
In ono eye, which I remember made mo
speculate whether It was natural or acquired.
Ho was In tho very glossy
black which was the orthodox dissenting
unlfoim In those far-off days, and
walked with a limp which mado his
progress up tho pulpit, or pithor platform,
stairs tantallzingly slow. Somo
brief but evidently important Instruction
was nt last whispered by Mr. Spurgeon
in the lamo man's car, and 25,000
people wero at oncb agog' with curiosity
to know what this could possibly ba
nt such a timo when tho wholo vast
placo was quivering with anticipation
and suppressed emotional excitement.
I happened to be seated so near to Mrs.
Spurgeon that when tho worthy derwon
"mado for her" in his crab-like, ponderous
way, It was unavoidable that I, at
least, out of that vast and silent crowd
of expectants, should hear what had delayed
the pastor, and what the urgent
matter was ho had, ut such a critical
moment, to communicate. In a hoarse,
fleshly whisper I heard this: "Mr.
Spurgoon bays" (could I help listening?
tho Interludo was serious, and oven
dramatic, and my cars craned that way
whether I would or not) "Mr.
says, pleaso will you chango your
scat so that ho will not bo able to seo
you; It" ("It" was doubtless Mrs,
obvious emotion) "makes him
nervous;" and tho lady moved Immediately
to another scat not visiblo from
tho preacher's place. Edmund Ytres,

bOUL OF A GUITAR.
Tlio Itntmmrnt Viortt Valuable; la It
Violins mado by tho great artist of
Cremona havo been sometimes bought
at fabulous prlcos, but It Is rare that
an old guitar becomes almost as valuable
as a genulno Stradlvarlus. M.
Uhlmanu, a natlvo ot Luxembourg, dom
iciled in Purls, has, however, Inherited
from a deceased undo a rather dilapidated
guitar, which has proved to lilm
the source ot a small fortune. Tho
undo was an Itinerant singer, and M.
Uhlmann, wishing, no doubt, to keep
up tho family connection with tha fine
arts, was In tho habit of going round
wlno shops with his inherited Instru
ment, with which h accompanied himself
as ho Intoned popular dlttlos. Ono
evening a semi-Inebriated person, who
abhorred music of every kind, snatohed
tho old guitar out of Its owner's hands
and cracked It on his (tho artist's) cranium.
M. Uhlmann wus assisted by tho police
In tho unequal encounter, and 'no
drunkard was carried oft to tho station
house. So, too, was tho broken guitar,
as a piece de conviction against tha unmusical
aggressor. A police ofllclal,
whllo examining, the damaged Instrument,
noticed that In its Interior there
Was a roll of papers, Theso, being
pulled out, wero discovered to bo stock
certificates worth 130. Tho scrip was
handed over to M. Uhlmann, as It had
belonged to his uncle. The wandering
minstrel from Luxembourg ws, so
overjoyed at his good fortune that he
