INDIAN PIG STICKING: I
ONE MAh WHO
8AYS IT IS THE
IN THE WORLD.
How the Wild tooan of ttaa Jamgtea of .
Ml aaal Kortaara Africa. Am B anted I
By Kathaalaatle Spevtanaaat at other '
Coaalilaa riiatr Tf n-i-aan. !
A. ati r.nt rtlo aHn1rv Y mav ti. fn. i
given for advancing the opinion that it
Is the finest sport in the world. By "pig
ticking" I of coarse mean pig sticking
as it is practiced in India and in north
ern Africa and perhaps in some other
English colonies viz, riding down the
pig on horseback and dispatching him
with spears. .
. The Indian wild pig varies naturally
according to his home. The biggest I
have ever seen were in the Vindhya
mountains, where I need to shoot thorn
as food for my beaters. Sometimes they
were of vast size, bigger, I think, than
even their Qanges cousins.
A peculiarity f the wild piir is the
straightness of his tail as compared with
me curled appendage of his domestic
brother. From tho ton of his low fore.
head to the end of his snout is almost a
perfectly straiaht line, and he has a far
longer snout and jaw than the English
market pig. His slrin is a kind of
bluish eray and his bristles crav or
black, though sometimes on almost
brown pig is found. Tho wild pig will
never live far from water. Ho is hap
piest in the long grass, often 12 feet high,
that grows along the banks of the Ug
Indian rivers, and above all rejoices in
"Jao," a kind of evergreen brushwood
that is as common as the grass. He only
eats at night, and about 10 p. m. he sal
lies forth from cover and will go many
miles to find tho succulent sugar cane or
other luxury, returning as n rule about
an honr la foro tho first streaks of dawn.
Iig sticking begins nsually about
Christmas werk, when the giant vegeta
tion of the ruins has died down sufficient
ly to get at piggy, and the marshy
ground where he lives in firm enongh for
horses, but it is not till tho end of Feb
ruary that really good pig sticking be
gins, and it improves as tho weather gets
dryer and hotter till tho June rains come,
and pig sticking instantly ceases.
At about da. in., after a light break
fast, the sportsmen set out usually ir.
tumtums'' to the meet, having sent
ineir spears ana uorses on anead over
night, together with the all important
mess tiffin backet, in which a huge block
or ice and innnmerablo soda water bot
tles and beer bottles figure largely. It
is rare to gather together more than 12
men. It may havo been different ir
olden times, bat polo is a formidable
rival to pig sticking nowadars. and the
ordinary British subaltern can rarely af
ford time and money for both. Indeed.
from my own exierience, I should say
the average field was not above five, and
personally, I math prefer, except fioin
the social point of view, very few com

the other and keeps together all day.
either at ono end of the line or in the
middle. The coolies are usually about
50 in number and form line, covering
aooui xuu varus or ground. LAch is
armed, or should be, with a big stick,
and tho end men carry flags, which can
be seen above the long grass and help to
keep tho coolies in lino. Behind them
marches on each wing one of the shi
kari's satellites, and in the center is the
Ehikari himself on horseback, and these
oKcers, like sergeants, keep the line
straight, and exhort, often in language
more forcible than polite, the apathetic
coolies to etrenuoos exertions. The
sportsmen generally rido a few yards in
advance of tho line, unless, from the na
ture of tho covert, the pig is likely to
A pig lies usually in a kind of form
like a hare and will sometimes let s
man or horse almost tread on him be
fore moving, and being often covered
with mud cr dust is very difficult to see
in the grass and weeds. When, how
ever, ho does jump up, he elips along at
an incredible speed for tho first 30 or 40
yards and then settles down to a very
fast gallop.' I have known boars at once
on being put up make straight for the
first man or horse they see before thev
have been wounded or touched, and. as
all know, the tusk of the wild boar cuts
like a razor, though luckily the wound
is usually a healthy .clean cut very dif
ferent from a mauling by the fetid claws
of a tiger or leopard or the thrust of a
stag s horn.
Wherever a pig gets up one of the
sections go after it, and there are various
little rules as to how tho pig should be
attacked and in what order. The Hiot
important rule is never to drop your
spear, still less throw it at the rig, ns
some beginners bave been known to do.
fcpears are weighted with lead at the
handle, and when dropped from the hand
in the long grass, the sharp end, being
the lighter, naturally sticks np, so that
the next horseman or beater may be
wounded. I know of several horrible ac
cidents that have happened in this way.
The man who first draws blood gets
"the first spear'' and is entitled to the
carcass. The body is given to the coolies
to eat, and the head is taken home by the
triumphant sportsman to adorn his bun
galow hall, or the tushes are taken out
and made into some knickknack. Of
coarse he is in honor bound to help
fairly kill as well as prick his foe, but it
is the second horseman, riding perhaps
four lengths behind him, who has the
most dangerous part to play. A pig
when wounded rarely pursues his for
mer course, and tbe leader often loses
touch with him, while his follower has
to bear the full brant of a terrific charge.
It is fatal to receive a boar's charge, at a
walk or trot. One cannot go too fast
not straight at the pig, bat at a slight
angle to him as he charges. . -
In Bombay a long .pear is used, and
the boar is stack by an "underhand"
tlirnst. In eastern Bengal a jabbing
spear is used and is more deadly, 1 think.
Of coarse it is unlawful to stick sows.
They cannot fight well, having no tushes,

A Stage Held Vp and a Maid Carried OA
by m Good Lookine Kal Man.
.A romantic case of kidnaping occurred
the other day in the country back of
Mazatlan. The stage between Rosario
and Mazatlan, which left the former
place, stopped at 1 a. ru. the next day at
Agua L-aiiente, where another passenger,
a yonng and pretty girl, was taken on.
She was Carlotta Newman, daughter of
a poor blind woman living at Mazatlan.
There were two other passengers, a man
and a woman.
The stage left Agua Caliente at 2 a. m.
and had gone only a couple of leagues
when the driver suddenly reined np at a
:all from the roadside, where four men
an horseback sat coolly pointing re
volvers at his head. There was no de
mand for coin, and from the quiet man
ner of the highwaymen the driver could
draw no idea of tbo nature of their de
mands. While one man held a gun
pointed at tho driver and another at

man, a magnificent looking fellow, as
Jose Valdez, her rejected lover, and di
vining tbe plot she begged the passengers
to save her. Valdez warned them to do
nothing, and as they had no firearms
they dared not protest against the ac
tions ot the bold robbers.
After urging Miss Newman to come
out withont avail, Valdez and his com
panion laid hold of her and carried her
to the bones, placing her npon one and
tying her to the saddle. The girl's
ihieks and tears had no effect either in
Berrying tho men or arousing their
uiger. When they were again mounted
and ready to leave, Valdez turned to the
driver and sai l calmly, -Go, friend.

TRAINING BOTH HANDS ALIKE.
W Ooed ateaaaa Tet Adraared Why It
Shoald Mat Be Daaaa.
Xn one of his essays in a book en
titled Brushwood, " the late James T.
Fields wrote: "If I were a boy again, I
think I wonld learn to nse my left hand
just as freely as my right one, so that
if anything happened to lame either of
them the other would be all ready to
write and handle things just as freely
if nothing had occurred." And un
doubtedly a great many of ns would
learn to nse both hands alike if we had
our lives to live over again. Of all the
yonng women who came under my in
struction while in charge of the School
of Domestic Economy of the Iowa Ag
ricultural college, not more than one in
twenty-five could sweep properly. The
ratio in this respect of those who came
under my instruction at Purdue univer
sity was about the same. And as far
my observation extends this ratio
will bold in regard to women generally.
As a rule, women, old and young, do
not know how to handle a broom. Their
right hands only have been trained.
Their left hands 'have been neglected.
When a women takes hold of a broom
it is with the right hand near the top
of the handle-' and the left hand toward
the corn, and instead of changing and
reversing them as occasion demands
she always keeps them in tho eamo po
sition. W h ther she sweeps to the right
or to the left, the position of her hands
remains unchanged. And her body is
contorted and her muscles strained in
tbe performance of an oiieration that
would exercise these organs harmonious
ly, if tho hands were so trained that
they could lie used at will and were
changed as demanded by the changes in
the position of the sweeper.
I refer to women sweeping merely to
illustrate my point. The same can be
said concerning the trainine of the
bands in numerous other branches of
women's work that it is unnecessary to
mention, and , so far as the nse of the
left hand is concerned men are in no
better condition than women. Men and
women are in this respect maimed and
handicapped alfe. Why should such
state of things exist? Why, in this
age of manual training, should we over
look and neglect the education of the
left hand and continue to train the
right hand at the expense of the left?
No physician cr physiologist has ever
given a sensible reason for so doing,
and we seem to adhere to the custom
merely becauso it has been carried down
to ns by oar ancestors. Jenncss Miller

A ragged, barefooted boy, a crossing
sweeper, had doffed his cap to the Duch
es vf Sutherland in tho hope of recog
nition, when fae observed a well dressed
but rakish looking man following her
across the street, as if trying to fores
npon her attentions that were evidently
obnosaous to her. There was a look of
distress on tho duchess' face.
"Sense me, lady, said a boy's voice
beside her, "shall I punch is 'ead?
She turned, looked down angrily npon
the little sweeper, and then said, smiling:
Why, it's Jemmief
She had remembered his name after
all, and at that moment the boy washers,
body and sonL Without waiting for
another word he dashed off and turned
a sort of violent "cartwheel" so adroitly
calculated that he landed with two very
muddy feet in the middle of the offensive
Then, before the man could recover
from the shock, the boy had slapped him
with one muddy hand across the mouth
and with the other had deposited a hand
ful of the filthy compound on the back
of his neck.
The next moment the boy was in the
grasp of a policeman, who dragged him
away to the nearest police station. He
was just being charged by the constable
with having committed an assault when
the duchess entered. She spoke kindly
to the gamin and then explained the af
fair to the inspector on duty.
At her request the boy was et at
liberty, and ho staid only long enough
to say to the inspector:
