Some days ago four tramps walked
Into Binghamton, N. Y., from the
st. Their clothing hung in shreds
aInd one was badly crippled' from a
wound in.the leg. They visited a phy
slician to have the injury dressed. One
said his companion had fallen off a
freight train and another that when the
man was passing through a strip, of
woods- near Owego they were at
tacked by wild animals and narrowly
escaped with their lives.
t The latter story was borne out by the
nature of the wounded man's injuries.
They had the appearance of long, dep

THE BEAR A NOCKED OU T BOTH MEN.
New York Press, an Italian walked in
to town leading a dancing bear and told
a story which accounted for the in
Juries. His name was Antonio Maxia,
and he waspn his way from Buffalo to
New York. As the weather was mild,
he conceived the idea of saving' rail
road fare and picking up a few coins
along the way by walking the distance.
Without adventure he reached a point
between Binghamton and Vestal, when
he determined to stay in a vacant barn
ovei night.
Accordingly, "Beppo" was lodged In
one corner of a box stall and Antonio
curled down on a pile of straw for a
nap. He was awakened by several
rough forms bending over him and a
voice saying: "We'll go through him
anyway, and if he hollers a kick in the
head willfinish him,"
Antonio was frightened, He had $40
in a belt. As one of the men seized his
Arms, he gave the whistle he used to
call his four-footed rervant. The men
thinking he was signaling a comrade,
threw him down and choked him until
he gasped for breath. They did not
see the dark form that emerged from
the box stall and shuffled toward them.
Evidently "Beppo" realized the situa
tion at once. Among his other accom
plishments he had at one time given
boxing exhibitions with his keeper. As
one of the men who was bending over
the Italian looked up and saw the heavy
figure, he gave a shout. Catching up a
club he struck violently at the bear.
The blow was parried and the club
sent crashing through a windpw. Then
a companion drew a revolver. A blow
sent the weapon in one direction and
the man sprawling on the ground. Then
It was that the wounded man drew a
knife and attempted to attack bruin.
He was seized in brawny arms and left
shrieking for help as his companions
'ed.
Fortunately for the man Antonio had
.gained his senses and compelled the
animal to loosen his hold. The tramp
on being released staggered to the door
and out into the darkness. Antonio
thinks that only for the prompt aid ren
dered by "Beppo" that night he would
have been robbed and perhaps mur
dered. As it was he had enough of tour.

The first time in the remembrance or
the living generation the Sea of Azov is

Eagles Carry Off a Child-Pursued
by Bears-A Mountain Lion At
tacks an Engineer, Etc.
HE Northern Paciflo Railway
Mont., will seen be orna
mented with two of as fine
specimens of the American eagle fam
ily as are in existence. The birds are
the property of E. T. Barnett, North
ern Pacific mineral land examiner,
who obtained them sometime ago
while in Flathead County.
Mr. Barnett tells an interesting
story of how he came by the big birds.
He was on the upper Kootenai River,
in the northwestern part of the State,
having charge of a party examining a
large tract of land on the river. The
country there is almost primitive in its
condition, there being little evi.dence
of civilization about. It is a wilder.
ness of forest and mountains and is a
favorite hunting place for roving
bands of Indians.
Near where Mr. Barnett and party
were at work was a camp of Indians.
The lodges were scattered about pro
miscuously in Indian fashion near-the
river's edge. There was little activity
about the camp. The backs were for
the most part out hunting and the wo
men kept inside the lodges, it being a
particularly warm day. At the edge of
the camp was a group of dirty, naked
little Indian children, romping on the
grass together.
All of a sudden the quiet of the
camp was broken by the sudden intro
duction of two great eagles, which
swooped down upon the group of chil
dren. Apparently nrt frightened in the
least by their cries, one of the eagles
fastened its talons into the back of
the smallest child and then, after a
mighty sweep of its wings, lifted it
into the air. The frightened little
papoose yelled with all its might, but
the eagle dragged it up the bluff forty
or fifty feet and then dropped it, ap
parently becoming exhausted. Then
the other eagle grabbed the boy and
started with him up the bank, which
at that place arose almost perpendicu
lar 400 or 500 feet.
All that happened in a moment!
The camp which had been so quiet be
fore was immeliately turned into a
place of confusion. The squaws, hear
ing the cries of the children, came
running out of the lodges. When
they saw what was the matter they
rushed up the bluf as bard as they
could go. But even then the eagles
did not want to give up their prey.
They were not frightened by the noise
and kept dragging the poor little
Indian boy farther and farther up the
blu.f.
Mr. Barnett, attracted by the cries,
took In the situation at a glance and
ran for the bluff with his rifle, which
he happened to have with him. Be
fore he reached the child an Indian
buck had come up with the eagle
having the boy in his talons and killed
it with a club. Mr. Barnett had been
afraid to shoot for fear of hitting the
child, the mark being a moving one.
He shot the other eagle, however, just
as it commenced to soar away. Strange
to say, the little boy was not seriously
injured,, although near;y frightened to
death. -Omaha Bee.
Pursued by Black Bears.
Elmer Thornburg, a mining man of
Granite, Or., arrived at his home,
after having a most exciting trip across
the mountains on snowshoes and nar
rowly escaping being food for a couple
of fierce and hungry bears. Thorn
burg is interested in mining ground
away down in a region known as
"Desolation," in the lower North Fork
country, and one day recently he con
cluded it would be wisdom on his part
to take a trip down to see how the
camp was prospering and take the
United States mail and extras in to the
boys. The journey to within about
four miles of the camp was made with
out difficulty by Thornburg, mounted
upon a pair of snaoshoes, but at that
distance the snow was all gone, and he
had to abandon his snowshoes and
tako to walking. This, with his rack
on his back, was no picnic. When
within about two miles of camp he
sat down on the sunny side of a log to
rest.
No sooner had Thornbarg settled
hiZself comfortably than he was dis
turbed by several grants and a lot of
clawing and scratching beneath the
log. IHe was unarmed. In a minute
there appeared from beneath the log
two black muzzles, followed by the
bodies of two full-grown, ferocious,
red jawed, black bears, with bristles
erect as they came from their com
fortable burrow.
Thornbnrg jumped to his feet and
started down the trail on a run. The
heavy pack on his back impeded his
progress, however. The hungry hears
quickly took up the scent, and were
after his. When he saw-tht the race
would be an uneven one, he dropped
his burden at the foot of a young
black pine tree and climbed up among
the branches as nimble as a chipmonk.
The bears broke open his discarded
bundle and ate all the bacon and other
good things. Then they turned their
attention to Thornburg. Fierce with
hunger, their savage appetites just
whetted good, the bears put their huge
paws around the slender tree trunk
and endeavored to reach him.
Breaking off a branch of the tree,
Thornburg rapped smartly each black
nose that came within reach, and bruin
would go away growling, only to re
turn when the pain had ceased. This
was the best and only defense the pur
sued man could avaiiphimself of. In
the meantime he began to yell at the
top of his voice in the hopes that his
cries might reach camp. They finally
did, and Mr. Dickison and Ed
Flaherty came out with their trusty
rifles and made it possible for the un -
armed and unharmed man to descend
from his perch.
Thornburg will not make any more
trips on snowshoes across the moun
tains without his gun. -Portland Tele

Fought the Bear with Fire.
An English tourist, recent;y re
turned from Nevada, tells how he nar
rowl escaped from the-clntches of a
bear. He hal ecramubled to the top of
£ large bowlder and the boear, wounded
in one of its legs, began scratching in I
the ground at the toot of the bowlder, j

denly,' he says, "I felt the bowl
der on which I btood shake and
give a sudden downward lurch.
It then dawned upon me that
the bear was undermining my
stronghold, and within a few minutes
it would topple over and I be delivered
over to his tsnder mercy. In this
emergency I bethought myself of a
bottle of brandy which I carried in
my pocket. Thinking that by pouring
its contents over the ground the bear
would desist from his undermining
operation,;, I emptied half of it, but
he seemed to be all the more refreshed
by the smell and worked away more
vigorously than ever.
"There was but half of the brandy
left and things were beginning to look
serious, when I tried, as a last chance,
the extreme remedy of emptying the
remainder of the flask onto the back of
the bear and throwing a lighted mnatch
to the brandy. 'Ihe flames immediately
enveloped the animal,and,with shrieks
and yells of pain he, skedaddled to my
great relief.
"I was presently rejoined by my
companions, and with loaded guns we
followed up the bear, whom we soon
discovered licking his burnt sides, on
which very little fur reipained. He
a as so weak after his adventure at the
bowlder that we had no difficulty in
dispatching him."
Engineec Attacked by a Lion.
To battle with a huge mountain
lion, seven feet in length, an .253
pounds in weight,on a trestle at night,
is the thrilling experienca that has
just befallen Edward C. Depew, an
engineer on the Great Northern lasil
road, near Lowell, Wash.
"At the time of the adventure,"
says Engineer Depew, "I was pulling
the overland passenger train going
east, and as we were 4 few minutes
late we were trying to make up a little
time. After we had left Lowell, and
almost two miles east of there, about
half way across a long trestle, my fir3
man, George Lawrence, jumped down
off his seat box and came quickly to
my side of the engine. I noticed a
startled leok in his face, and, looking
ahea:l, saw through the darkness a
black object on the track.
"My first thought was of some ob
struction on the track. For a second
the thought of jumping flashed through
my mind, but I banished it. Nothing
could be done. We were too close to
the danger, and the fright had the
same effect on me that it had on Law
rence. It took away my power of
speech. Instinctively I crawled out
of nmy cab on to the side of the engine.
"'fhe train dashed on. In an instant
I saw a monster's eyes flashing through
the darkness, green and yellow by
turns.
"As the train approached the lion I
could see it prepare to spring. Finally,
when the leap was made, the situation
was so dramatic as to be almost theat
rical in effect.
"The force of the jump was astound
ing. The body of the beast crashed
into the edge of the engine front. To
jump then was certain death, for we
were right in the centre of the trestle.
Yet, as the lion made its leap, I could
almost feel its hot breath on my throe*.
"1 learned afterward that thecoqzar,
after we had struck it, lodged in the
cross ties of the trestle.
"The beast was still alive phen the
men of No. 493 discovered it, but its
hind legs were cut off. Boreman John
C. Wright would not dp near it until
he had emptied a cor.ple of chambers
of his revolver into it. Then they
fastened the body to the caw catcher
and took it to Skkomish."
An Injured Miner's Nerve.
A few days ago at Qunartsaburg, in
Baker county, Theodore Eby, a miner,
was working alone in a stope in the
Gifford mine when a huge rook fell
from the hanging wall and struck his
leg, breaking it about half way be
tween the knee and hip and pinioning
the unfortunate mhn fast. Within
arm's length of where he stood was a
pick. With this instrument he pried
the rock from his leg and extricated
himself. There was no assistanoe
nearer than Mr. Gifford's houseo, just
below the dump of the tunnel, ana the
only person there was Mrs. Giffoid,
her husband being absent.
There was only one thing for Eby
to do, and that was to get 'himself out
the best way possible. The journey
ahead of him required almost super
human eflort. He had to go down on
a ladder iu a sixty-foot sha't from the
stope to the tunnel, which was 300
feet from the entrance. He let him
self down the shaft by his hands, and
on reachingthe tunnel crawled out,
all the time suffering the most intense
pain. On reaching the dump he called
for help, and Mrs. Gifford came to his
assistance and helped him to the house
and to his bed. Later Mr. Gifford re
turned home and procured a physician
to attend Mr. Eby, who at last accounts
was getting along as well as gould be
expected. -Morning Oregonian.
A Plan to Preserve Eggs.
A New York electrician has devised
a scheme for the Indefinite preserva
tion of eggs. For years the only suc
cessful method of accomplishing this
result has been to submerge the hen
fruit in lime water long enough to
close up the , pores in the shell, and
kill any germs which might be lurk.
ing about. With this treatment it
has been possible to preserve eggs in
such a state as to permit their use
three or four months alter the Esub
mersion. But at the expiration of
this time, while the eggs are in a con
dition to be used by confectioners and
bakers, they have lost the delicacy
and freshness which make them appe
tizing. However. if the electrician's
scheme proves to be a enccee, eggs
can be preserved for an indefinite
period in as eatable a condition as
when first laid. The treatment pro
posed involves the placing of the egg
in a vacuum chamber. It is a well
known fact that the shell is not abso
lately airtight, and there is always
more or less air inside the ou-er cov
ering,which hastensits decay. Patting
them in the vacuunam chamber will have
the eftect of drawing the air from the
interior. They will then be painted
with a oompositzon which will render
the shells airtight. After this they
will be packed in barrels of water and
an electric current will boe itroducedi
sufficient in strength to destroy any l

The Height of Trees,
It has, perhaps, occurred to few of
us that the boughs of trees occupy a
very different position in summer and
winter, respectively, but Miss Agnes
Fry has made careful measurements
of the height from the ground of
branches of both walnut and mulberry
trees in August and December, and
she finds that in some cases there is a
difference of as much as thirty-one
inches in the height of the same branch
from the ground in these two months.
This particular figure was obtained
with a branch of a mulberry tree, and
it was found that in December a weight
of thirty-five pounds was not suilloient
to lower it to its summer position.
In other cases there were differences
of from thirteen to nineteen inches in
the distances in summer and winter
respectively of branches from the
ground. No wonder, then, that- the
diagnosis of a tree in winter from its
general outline is so difliuoli a tsk,-

some years ago by Dr. Peabody. It
was of a case where a pin was found
in a human heart after having been
there for an indefinite period. The
point of the pin was distant about five
millimeters from the external surface
of-the heart. The pin seemed eroded,
and was broken by the scissors in dis
section, without becoming displacedJ
There was no evidence of recent local
inflammation, but that part of the heart'
in the neighborhood of the protruding
head of the pin was greatly thickened
and snow-white, and firmly adherent to
the edge of the head.

SILENT SUFFEREERS.
Women do not Like to Toll a Dootor
r the Details of Their
Private Ills.
The reason why so many women suffer
in silence from the multiple disorders con
I nected with their sexual system is that
they cannot bear to broach, the subject
to a man, even if he is a physician.
No one can blame a modest, sensitive
woman for this reticence. It is unneces
sary pn these times, however1 for a woman
makes to all afflicted women a most generous
offer. Mrs. Pinkham of Lynn, Mass., bids every
woman who suffers to write to her and confide
every symptom that annoys her, and she will give
her advice without charge, and that advice is
based upon the greatest experience ever possessed
by malj or woman in thiscountry, and extends over
a period of twenty-three years, and thousands upon
thousandeofcases. Whysufferinsilence anylonger,
my sister, when you can gethelp for the asking? Don't fear totellhereverything.
The case of Mrs. Colony, whose letter to Mrs. Pinkham we publish, is an
illustration of the good to be received from Mrs. Pinkham's advice; here is a
woman who was sick for years and could get no relief-at last in despair she
wrote to Mrs. Pinkham-rcceived in return a prompt, sympathetic and inter
ested reply. Note the result and go and do likewise.
"I was troubled with such an aching in my back asbhips, and I felt so tired
all the time, and had fcr four years. For the last year it was all I could do to
drag around. I would have such a ringing in my head by spells that it seemed
as though I would grow crazy. I ached from my shoulders to my feet and
was very nervous. I was also troubled with a white discharge. I wrote to Mrs.
Pinkham at Lynn, Mass., received a prompt reply and followed her advice, and
now I have no backache and begin to feel as one ought; in fact, I never felt bet
ter in ten years than I do now. I thank God that I went doctoring with Mrs.
Pinkham when I did, for if I had not I know I would have been in my grave.,.

In the year 18638, while In command of "
Union regiment at" Cumberland Gap, Col.
onel Messer, now of Flat Lioks, Kentucky,
received a severe gunshot wound in his ab
domen. In a few.months he was again in
the saddle, but soon was obliged to undergo
further medical treatment, and his condi
tion became so serious that in the winter of
1863 he returned to his home, and was never
again fit for active service. During the
years that have since passed, Colonel Messer
has been a confirmed invalid from the effect
of his wound, and has been under the con
stant care of the local physicans, not im
proving, but growing worse as the years
rolled on. His condition eventually be
came deplorable. Almost blind,legs swollen,
so that he was unable to walk, the doctors
who could do nothing to arrest the progress
of the disease, diagnosed it as dro-sy, and
said recovery was impossible.
The old soldier did not half believe his
physicians, but said that since they could
do nothing for him, he would, upon an old
friend's strong recommendation, try Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People. The
first box was taken by Col. Messer accord
ing to directions, and by the time that was
gone, he felt so much easier and more com
fortable, that several other boxes were pro
cured, and he continued to take them faith
fully. Soon the swelling in his legs disap
peared, and with it the fierce rheumatic
pains with which he had long suffered.
Strangest of all, his eyesight, which for so
many years had been useless, was restored.
In all, Colonel Messer took Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills six months, and then was thor
oughly cured. He now is a healthy looking
man, rides on horseback, and stands as
much fatigue as any man of his age.
The Colonel, since his recovery, is never
tired of descanting on the virtues of these
pills, and every advertisement that he finds
he carefully clips, and sends to some sick
friend or neighbor, with the assurance that
they will cure hinm
The high standing of Colonel Messer, and
his rema/kable recovery, makes this report
more than usually interesting, and when it
was received at the office of the Dr. Wil
liams' Medicine Co., it was referred to
Messrs. Phipps & Herndon, the well-known
druggists, of Barboursville, Ky., for verifi
cation. We append the reply:
BAenoousvxnnL, Ky., Aug. 18, 1896.

Schenectady, N. Y.
Gentlemen:-Yours of August 14th to
hand, enquiring about testimonial written
by Mr. Sampson concerning Colonel Measer,
of Flat Lick, Ky., will say that the cure of
Colonel Meoser was considered almost mi.
raculous, and he claims Pink Pills did it.
Yours truly,
PaIP's & Hasnnow.
