coma, Wash., not long since, were two
men who attracted considerable atten
tion from the habitues of these places,
though apparently inclined to avoid it.
They were two rather handsome but
weather-beaten men who had just re
turned from Alaska, where they had
been employed hy a syndicate of capi
talists on a prospecting tour of some
sort. The larger one, who was consid
erably over six feet. and would weigh
two hundred and fifty pounds. was of
a retiring, almost sullen disposition,
but wild and reckle.s when drinking.
while the smaller one was more in
clined to he coinmmunieative in his cups.

but the one called Thomson declined
and walked out. In the course of the
evening a good many stories were told,
and when one of the boys wound up on
a small bearstorv it got .lohnny started.
"People as a rule know very little of
the real characteristics of the bear,"
said he. "Some are almost harmless,
while Bome are simply terrible. I have
hunted the brown bear in Europe and
the black bear itt this country, but I
never saw one of either killed in my
life that wasn't a coward."
"The grizzly certainly isn't a cow
ard," remarked one of the boys present.
"No." was the response. "but while
the grizzly is a terrible brute, it will
not hunt up a human being for the
mere pleasure of tighting and killing
him. The most terrible animal of
the tribe and the only one I regard as
the genuine urtus ferox. is the long
necked polar bear of the north. Nearly
all other bears are primarily vegetari
ans, althoiugh omnivorous. They love
vegetables when they can get them.
Blut a polar ),ear loves only meat, and
meat he will have. To see the glutton
ons creatures hunting and eating fish,
fromn the freshest to, the most offensive
and decayed carrion, is enough to give
an idea of what they are.
"(One stinging cold day last winter at
our furthest northern point, we wdre
waiting to be taken btak to a casnp,
sone hundred miles or more south of
us. The Esquimaux we had engaged
had not arrived, so while we were wait
ing for -them with their dogs and
sledges, we were killing time in a little
improvised snow hut. Thomson had been
growing more impatient every minute,
and had been drinking mire brandy
than I thought desirable. iAnd T began
to-fear he-would punish the Esquimaun
and cause some trouble when .they .ar
rived. Presently, just outside of our
hubt, there came an immense white ~ear
nosing around. As long as we chose to
stay in the hut we were perfectly safe,
but Thomson's anger now turned itself
loose upon the bear As often as we
went out there stood the repulsive
creature, and, after each tour of inspec
tion, Thomson would take another
drink and curse the bear. At last he
awo-e he was not going to stand it any
longer, but would go ott there and
wring its neck. With this he grasped
his long-bladed bowie knife and walked
out. I called to him and begged him to
stop, but I might as well have beep
talking to the wind.
"1 hurriedly put on my wraps, and by
the time I got out. he was down close
to the bear. You know what a mag
rifieent specimen of physical manhood
hCe is. Well, you ought to have seen
him then, Every muscle was like a
bar of steel, and stimulated by the
brandy he had been drinking, he was
at the summit of physical manhood.
bseeing me approaching with my riflde
he warned me to keep 'hands off.' as
this w-as to be a duel and no unfair ad
vantage should be taken. I knew him
too well to cross him, and besides I
might hit him if I shot, so I simply
vaitled and ivatchel the duel.
"Thomson tried in every way to get
around behind ih- bear, but tihe bear

would go on his hind feet again. In a
spirit of .recklessness Thomson stopped.,
this dilatory play by walking righC
into the bear's arms and cutting a ter

course, all the claws on each of the

Behold the old maid!
Behold the girl bachelor!
There is a differenee of opinion about
the much-talked-of girl bachelor. iome
say that she is a new species in the so
cial fauna, while others contend that
she is oily a niodified form of the fa
miliar division of the social 'kingdom
known as the old maid. There may or

* Popular prejudice, weary, perhaps, of
bte patjistadti with which it has
heaped ignominy upon the title of old
maid, has opened an avenite by which
it can perfornm a dignified retreat to the
standard of the girl bachelor.
In response tp a niurmnrof hints that
it now swears allegiance to those to
whom it once gave only pity and endur*

girl bachelor is as different from an old
maid as a yachtsman is from a galley
slave. The one sails the wide seas of
single blessedncs, because she chooses
to do so, the other-according to the
theory of popular prejudice-because,
with a few grudgingly admitted excep

an indifferecnt or lively manner may
offer the best protection to their real
self. And in their dread at having this
real self discovered they will often turn
the disguise into a caricature, exagger

It is a common trick in the inferior
shops to smoke up and soil a few goods.
advertise a "burnt goods sale," mark
these goodxs at the regular price, and
thus they often attract a large crowd
