Soveral days ago hunters on the

auimttl and a lively uhaso ensued,
ending in tho hounds all turning tail
to tho objeut of their uhaso and no
amount of hissing could induce tho
paok to ontnr tho jungle ahead of
thom. Tho hunters decided to give
up tho ohaso for that night. They
resolved, however, to go out aain
and givo tho animal a chase, and
passing this resolution the hunters
returned to Waco and to their little
THE BEAST MUST HE CAUGHT.
The oxoitement engendered by this
chase, grow to immenso proportions
Hon. Cono Johnson, of Tler, came
over on a visit and his friends hero
insisted that he join the hunting
party,',which had been made up to go
out and tacklo the Mexican Cougar
That was the namo decided upon for
tho "critter," that had frightened tho
dogs so on the first drivo.
Well, a party of ono hundred and
lifty or two hundred men wcut out
from Waoo Wednesday, and was j jined
on tho Boeque by 75, or 100 men
from about Crawford, and in answer
to the tooting of horns, something
like sixty or (seventy dogs, trained and
true, yelped a response. There was
never a happier, merrier orowd than
took up the march against that
oougar. Tho dogs were fresh and in
a short timo struok a trail. Tho whole
paok joined in the music and the
chaso was spirited for a while, bin ail
at once the hounds stopped, and the
leaders came back with bristles ereot
and tail drooping, thty gathered un
der tho hunters' horses, A peculiar cry
from the bushes ahoid surtled the
breast of those bravo hunters and
when its echoes died away Juutioe
Jack Harrison, Tom Brown and Sena

usual courage was upermost and the
guteral tones of Alex MoCullooh and
Henry Warren when they simtltan
eously uttircd the word ' Cougar" had
no visible effect on theso gentlemen.
Welt, it took sonio time to got the
animal started again but it was ' did"
and another lively ohase and a rebound
bv tho bravo hounds was the result.
Things went on this way until a late
hour, when Justice Harrison, Tom
Brown and others oame back home,
leaving Alex McCulluch,
Henry Warren, Senator Johnson, an 1
tho balance of them still determined to
OATOH TIIE COUOAR,
Tho hunt continued until lato the
next day, and the wild and ferooious
beast was still at largo. Mon were
worn out, horses were tired, dogs
were run down, and as tho hour of

The boys weut' homo and in their
dreams, ejaculations nvealed the fact
that their minds had undergone a
severe strain of exoitement, when at
any moment each and every ono of

It seemed as though a few of tho
dogs failed to answer to the "oall off''

Thoy ian all day Thursday and all

ed to defend him and made a masterly
effort in tho interest of his client.
Before the evidenco was oonoluuded,
on the part of the state, tlio dofendant
pleaded guilty, and introduced eviden
ces in mitigation of tho offense,
and through his attorney, abked the
clomenoy of the court.
Tho evidonoo, upon the whole, was
of a very conclusive oharactor, and af
ter exhaustivo arguments by Mr. Ba
ilor, on the part of tho defondant, and

Lincoln, Neb., Jan. 9. Representa
tive Gardner of Omaha, a close friend ot
Govornor Boyd, said Wednesday night
that as soon as Boyd was reseated a
special session of tho legislature would
bo called to pass a inaxium freightrate
bill and to "Miehiganizo" Nobraska.
This would mean a disruption of the
Republican party in tho htate nnd a loss
of at least 8 electoral votes. Boyd le
.lieves himself shabbily treated by the
railroads, and as tho Alliance majority in
tho legislature is in sympathy with the
move, a rato bill would pass with a
whoop. Tho railroad interests ousted
Boyd nftor ha had berved their purpose
in vetoing the rato bill hut winter, and
hi is ripo for vengiimoe.
