CUEIOUS BLED STORIES.
How a Partridge Was Killed by a
A Sparrow in a Thunder-Storm?Ilxclte
nent Caused tu a Church by a Night
Hawk?Friendship Between a
Rooster and a Do?.
A few days sinoe, writes the Norwich
(Conn.) correspondent of tho Now York j
Sun, a partridge that v.-ab cleaving the
air in swift flight across a break in tho !
forest along the Air Lino Railway, in
Windham "County, performed an odd
trick on an express train that was ex
tromely unfortunate for the. bird. Tho :
four p. m. express train was a triflo lato !
coming into Pomfret village, and was
running at lightning speed, when tho
partridge essayed to cross over the track
in front of tho locomotive Both tho
bird and rushing engine were following
tho legs of an acutp trianglo to its apex
on the railroad line, but tho partridge
underestimated tho speed of tho train,
which reached the apex a second in ad?
vance. Tho heavy bird struck tho ex?
press car, in which Sam Dikeman, ox
pressman, was sorting ovor freight, and
went through a window in the side door
with the momentum of a solid shot. So
swiftly it sped it cut a clean circular
hole in the largo window pane as evenly
as if tho instantaneous job bad been
done with a diamond. Splinters of
glass fell in a jingling shower tbe
whole length of tho car, and as Sam
straightened himself from his worlc in
dumb amazement tho bird fell dead at
his feet, a mass of feathers and broken
bones. Sam bad broiled partridge for
supper that evening, and to save himself
the expense of tho broken window ho
tmade oath beforo tbo railroad superin?
tendent that tho wild bird, not he, was
the author of tho mischief.
In_the memorable thunder-storms last
week, whilo tho whole firmament
6cemed to bo shot through unceasingly
with zigzag lances of lightning, many
timid little birds sought refuge from tho
frightful uproar wherever a shelter of?
fered itself. On 0110 dark afternoon the
telegraph operators rattling away at tho
keys in the Western Union office in New
Haven suddenly heard a rustling over?
head, and glancingabout saw a sparrow,
which, having come In through the open
window, was swiftly skimming about th?
high-ceiled room. Then came a great
crash of thunder, jarring heavily under
tho foundations of the building, and the
little bird with a frightened "peep" flut?
tered down on tho sounder at W. J.
Sheehan's desk. Mr. Sheehan picked
up tbo sparrow and held it in bis hand
until the fury of the tempest had some?
what abated, then took it to the window
and released it. But the bird would not
go out into the storm, and after hesitat?
ing on the window ledge for an instant
returned to tho operator, climbing on his
shoulder and nestling against his face.
Finally he threw the sparrow far out of
doors and hastily shut tho window, but
it came back and pecked at tl. window
On another evening a big night hawk
flew into the German Lutheran Church
in New Haven whilo I'rof. J. E. Whit
tecker, of Rochester, was lecturing on
"The Follies and Foibles of Modern
Life," and for fifteen minutes excite?
ment reigned. A night hawk is a blun?
dering creature in its flight, and as the
wide-winged bird darted back and forth
in tho sanctuary in great sweeps and
circles just above the audience, its spot?
ted pinions gleaming specter-like as it
hummed through the air, women
screamed and darted about the pews, and
finally the lecturer had to stop talking
for fifteen minutes. Every ono was
afraid of tho bird, for as it skimmed
along the gallery front and shot among
the heads of the people, once passing so
closo to the face of Prof. Whittecker it
fairly took the words of hi- text out of
his mouth, it went with tho speed of a
rocket, and it seemed it must go slam
bang into somebody or something in its
dizzy turns. Once a wise man shouted:
"Catch that bird!" and tho profound ad?
vice set tho congregation to laughing.
Finally the hawk, in a random dash, ac?
cidentally scouted through a window,
and then tho lecture went on again.
At Rockville a rooster and a dog have
become fast friends. For a week tho
bird had been boset by a fierce cock,
both being members of the same flock,
and the two roosters fought almost con
stan, y not far from tho dog's kennel.
Finally, the weaker bird, sick and
friendless, having been completely
knocked out in tho ring, lied into the
dog's kennel to escapo its bloodthirsty
foe, and, dropping in tho straw, made
eloquent signs, as if asking protection
and shelter. Carlo undoubtedly had
watched the combat between tho birds
with an intelligent and sympathetic
eye, for not only did ho permit tho
wounded rooster to tarry in his bouse,
but when tho other bird attempted to
enter the kennel to glut its fury further
he arose threateningly, growled, and
just looked at the vindictive pursuer
once, and that bird evidently mado up
its mind that tho time for discretion
had como. lie went away sullenly.
Since then the wounded rooster has
dwelt with tho dog, and the two in?
mates of tho kennel seem to be-warmly
attached to each other. If any rooster
challenges to mortal combat are for?
warded to his friend tbo dog attends to
them promptly; so tho other barn-yard
fowls have concluded that it won't do at
all to monkey any more with the roos?
ter that lives in a kcnnol.
THREE NOTED WIDOWS.
Fresh Gossip About Mrs. Beecher, Mrs.
Custer and Mrs. Grant.
Mrs. Henry Ward Beecher has re?
turned from Florida, and is seen on tho
streets occasionally, a little figure,
slight, white-haired and folded in a
?blaek- shawl. When I met her yester?
day, says VNew ?ork correspondent to
the Post Dispatch, thero was the faint?
est touch of pink on her cheeks, giving
her that delicate, shell-liko beauty
which sometimes goes with a soft white
skin and white curls. She bad a bunch
of lilies of tbe valley pinned on her bo?
som. Within tho block I passed another
woman whose proximity mado mo look
about startled. Had she recognized the
daucrhtcr of Victoria Woodhull? I
think not. Neither had tho pretty Zulu
Maud recognized her. A new generation
has grown up, and in, any case, thero..
would not have been any thing dramatic
about the oncontre. Yet meeting tho
two brought back old memories. Mrs.
Beecher's rooms aro full of pictures of
her husband?as the young lover, in the
prime of lifo, as he was tbe year ho died
?and most of these pictures aro bo
plaoed that the trail of a vine, the petals
of a flower, caress them. Her inter?
ests in life are largely the things that
Interested him, or that she believes
would, i! he were now living^ meet his
approval. She gives a helping hand to
the Brooklyn Woman's Health Protect?
ive Association, which wishes to clean
the streets of a dirty city.
On the same day I passed within the
hour two other widows?Mrs. Custer, in
black dress and with winning eyes, and
Mrs. Juiia Dent Grant, who does not
'walk far, but was crossing tho sidewalk
from her carriage. Mrs. Custer has the
record, I believe, of never making an
'acquaintance who does not wish to be
'come' a friend. She waRcs the pave
jments with a splendidly free step, in
jwhiohone could almost fancy a rem
linisconce of the plains. A more prosaic
[explanation is found, in bor Irroad^oled,;
^?J'RitsijatiTs'Wcmory and absorbed m
her literary occupations.
Mrs. Grant looks well and kindly, and
stouter than is altogether becoming.
Queon Victoria, however, is fleshier,
and Mrs. Grant dresses in better tasto
than Queen Victoria. I fancy not much
crcdenco is to bo given to tho report
that she will go to England and live
with Mrs. Sartoris. All hor interests
are on this sido of tho water. Another
report, oven loss probable, says that sho
has plans for voluminous literary pro?
duction. When sho has finished tbo
reminiscences which now engago her,
which will bo practically her auto?
biography, it is moro than doubtful if
sho sets about any further labor.
WAR EAGLE IN STONE.
Klcknpoo Indians Comp on tho retrldcd
Body or n Chlor.
A dispatch from Shawneetown, I. T.,
to the St. Louis Globe-Democrat, says:
TbOro is great excitement among tho
Kickapoos over tho discovery of a petri?
fied body, supposed to bo that of War
Eagle, a leading chief of tho tribe, who
died many years ago, shortly after tho
tribe's return from Old Mexico. Instead
of the remains being deposited in tho
ground in a coffin they were placed in
an upright position in a large hollow
tree, there to await tho coming of tho
happy hunting days, as the Indians be?
Yesterday, during the rago of a fierce
forest Are, the trunk of tho tree was
consumed by the flames: A party of In?
dians who were passing through tho
woods, stopped to light their pipes,
when tho imago of an Indian warrior,
with tomahawk in hand, was discovered
underneath tho ashes of tho burning
tree. Tho scene which followed is de?
scribed as being most remarkable.
Tho Indians were scared so badly
that they lost all self-control, and a reg?
ular panic ensued, the Indians rushing
madly through the woods and yelling at
tho top of t heir voices. As soon as word
could be communicated to tho remain?
ing members of the tribe, somu two
hundred in number, a hurried consulta?
tion was held, at which it was decided
that the reservation should bo immedi?
ately abandoned. Luckily some of tho
more civilized members of tho tribe had
influence enough to allay the feeling of
fear, and the plan of desertion was not
The place of fright was visited later
in the day, when, sure enough, tho pet?
rified body of War Eagle was exhumed
and placed upon exhibition. The petri
Qcation was perfect. Tho war costume
was as natural as life, there being a per?
fect imprint on tho stone of both gun
and tomahawk, which were buried
alongside tho body. The peculiar for?
mation of stone presents an imposing
appearance, and, but for the occasional
creases caused by insects, would be clear
of any imperfections.
A large hollow log was selected, tho
top sawed oft" about fourteen feet from
tho ground, and tho petrified body
placed therein, to remain forever. A
two-inch pine slab bearing tbe following
inscription marks the remains of this
tribe's greatest warrior: "War L'agle,
great fighter, turned to rock. Indians
afraid Great Spirit. Let him sleep on
in his beauty forever."

Mr. Bowser Tacklss a Stove with
AST fall Mr.
Bowser put a
tho front hall
to keep it at a
during- tho win?
ter, and when
said about mov?
ing tho stovo.
It was not in
tho way. We
had no placo to
movo it to, and
camo without Mr. Bowser having said
any thing about a removal I felt per?
fectly assured that ho would leavo that
stovo alone. Great was my consterna?
tion, thorcforo, when ho suddenly ob?
served tho other evening, as wo roasted
on tho front steps:
"Well, well, but how absent-minded
I havo become! Why didn't you call my
attention to tho fact that that coal stovo
had not been moved out of tho hall?"
?'Because it is to be left there."
"Not much! People musthavc thought
us a queer family to leave it tbero as
long as we have."
"Mr. Bowser, that stovo is not in tho
way, and it is not an 03'e-sore. Besides
wo havo no place to store it."
"It goes to tho barn, of course."
"It would be tho most foolish thing
you couftl do."
"Humph! How would it look to havo
a snow-shovel standing on each sido of
our from door with tho thermometer at
OS degrees in tho shade? One must havo
any eye* out for consistency and the
eternal fitness of things."
"Well, if you are determined to move
it, if you will move it in spite of my pro?
tests, send up a couple of men to-morrow j
and have it over with."
"Send up nothing! Do you supposo j
I'm going to pay some ono two dollars \
to lift that stove out when I can do it
myself with a twist of the wrist? TU j
havo it out of the way in ten minutes."
"Mr. Bowser, you can no moro move
that stove tlwui 1 can fly."
"Can't 1? 1 can do it with one hand
tied behind mo, and I'll go right at it." j
1 argued and entreated, but it was no |
use. It was a dreadfully warm evening, j
and Mr. Bowser was panting as ho sat
fanning himself, hut what did bo do but
walk in and prepare for tho struggle.
I felt that I ought to make ono last ap?
peal, aiiif I followed him and said:
"Mr. Bowser, if you won't touch the
stovo to-night I'll make a big pitcher of
"Lemonade! Nonsense! One would
think from the way you talk that I was
going to murder somebody, .lust sit
"mrxDEB and blazes!"
right here and enjoy the cool breeze
while I skip the stove out. I'll get the
wheelbarrow aud take it to the barn."
"Mr. Bowser, remember that I pro?
"Certainly. You arc the great Amer?
ican protester, anyway. If I killed a
fly you'd protest."
I went back to the steps, knowing
well what would happen, but I felt that
I had dono ray duty. I heard him
fussing around for awhile, and then he
"She's party hefty, but she's got to
cc:ne out o' this."
Ten seconds 1?ter there was a wild
whoop, and when 1 got int? the hall
Mr. Bowser stood on one foot and was
shaking the other in the air, while the
top of the stove lay on the floor. He
had pulled it off at the first grab.
"Thunder?and blazes?and Jewhit
taker?and Texas?and Jemima!" ho
was yelling as he waved his foot aloft.
"Didn't I tell you?" I queried as I
looked at him.
"AV Never/ You never said a word?
not a word!"'
"Now will you let the stove alone?"
"NO! I'll take it out of hero if I die
"Mr. Bowser, this pig-headed obsti?
nacy of yours will surely lead to?1'
But he mado a jump at me, and I fled
back to tho front steps and waited in
suspense and terror for tho climax. It
was prolonged for about ten minutes.
Mr. Bopser had decided to go slow and
avoid another accident, lie took off all
tho loose parts, removed his coat, vest,
collar and cuffs, dropped tho suspend?
ers off his shoulders, and I plainly heard
bim spit on his hands and growl:
"None of the Dowser family were ever
yet downed by a coal stove, and it's too
late to b'gin now!"
Another man would have removed the
legs first. lie didn't think of it, but
undertook to movo the stovo as one
moves a barrel standing on end. lie
had progressed about live, feet when
there was a sound which frightened tho
whole neighborhood. My first impres?
sion was that the ginger ale factory in
the alley had exploded and driven our
barn up against tho kitchen. My next
was that a British gun-boat bad slipped
around from tho Behring sea and
dropped a four-hundred-pound shell on
the roof of our house to offset Mr. Bow?
ser's assertions that wo were tho great?
est fighting Nation on earth.
I knew what had happened. So did
the cook. So did the neighbors. It was
a minute before I could move, and I was
flying in-doors when I heard Mr. Bow?
ser utter a strange sound?something
between the last roar of a dying lion
and tho plaintive moan of a cow for her
lost calf. I couldn't see him at first. It
was all stove, and tho stove was on top
of him. Between my screams ar.d the
cook's shouts we got a neighbor in, and
the three of us iiited up the stove and
dragged Mr. Bowser out.
"You are tho biggest fool in America,
and I'll gamble on it!" exclaimed the
neighbor, as he stood over Mr. Bowser.
A long-drawn groan.
"It ought to have killed you! A man
who doesn't know better ought to have
a ton of iron fall on him! I suppose
your wifo will be foolish enough to send
for a doctor, but if you were any kin to
mo I'd take you out and drive you head?
first into tho alleyl"
With that ho went away, and I got
the doctor up. No hones were broken,
but Mr. Bowser had collapsed, liko an
empty barreh and every square inch of
him was bruised and ponnded. It was
long after midnight before he said any
thing. I wa3 rubbing him with arnica* I
