CATCHING A WILD HEIFER.

In Washington county. Maine, be

field and WhltneyvUle Have had con
siderable fun since October chasing a
wild heifer, which strayed from Bart

alertness and sagacity of game animals
In eluding capture. Dogs were put on
her in November, but Instead of circling
as deer do when pursued by hounds,
she put straight away like a caribou, to
remain for weeks away from her accus
Saturday a week ago there was a
heavy snow storm In that part of the
country, and report having come to
Whitneyvllle that the heifer, a shadow
of her former self, had been sighted in
the woods near the confluence of Old
and New streams, which empty Into
the Machias east of Northfleld, Thomas
Hennessey and Jim Healey, accompa

the woods to the clearings, but nothing
could induce her to come near a human
being. When sighted, Hennessey and
Healey gave chase on snowshoes. the

the heifer out of the question. She ran,
however, till her pursuers were close
on her quarters, when she suddenly,
says the New York Sun, turned to give
battle. Her bellowings were terrific and
she looked so frightful when she turned

Healey was game. Two years ago a

he has been the victim of more or lees

When the heifer turned he planted
himself squarely in front of her. She
hesitated, eyed him furiously for a mo

her head to give him the toss. Healey
grasped both of her horns, threw all
the weight of his body on his left hand,
bearing the heifer's head into the snow,
at the same time pushing up and over
on the left horn. It's a trick that has to
be done on the Instant, and when it is
worked as Healey worked it. down goes
the animal, as did the heifer.
Healey held her head In the snow

NO CRITICISM ALLOWED.
A TwnsBWTfho Thought lady Churchill's
Mm to Larked SonL
Lnrd Randolph Churchill, when In his
best health and busy, used to astonish
most other Englishmen by his Indiffer
ence to "sport" as a means of getting
lid of his occasional lapses of leisure.
He once said that he knew of two ways
of spending a holiday infinitely prefer
able to going off to Scotland for the
shooting; one was to go to Paris and
live a month or bo on the boulevards;
the other was to run down to Brighton
and stay In bed twenty hours out of the
twenty-four. His Ideal of a happy life,
says a writer In Kate Field's Washing
ton, was to go to bed in a quiet room,
stay there during the day reading and
dosing, dine In slippers and dressing
gown In the evening, and as soon as
convenient thereafter go back to bed.
Such liking as he had for society was
of the unconventional sort. He never
took a keen artistic delight in his wife's
musical accomplishments, but he was
unwilling that any one else should
speak disparagingly of them. At an en
tertainment once, where she had con
sented to execute a brillia.it dash on
the piano, a tall youth with bangs and
a monocle was observed paying a lan
guid and rather insolent attention to
the music, standing close enough to the
performer to have his comments easily
overheard by her. "Lord Randy" was
close at hand. too. and presently heard
the vapid youth remark: "Deuced fine
music, you know, but it lacks weal soul
it lacks weal soul." To the critic's
astonishment a muscular young man
with a big mustache, whom he had not
noticed before, whispered in his ear:
For a shilling I'd wallop the life out of
you." He hastened to withdraw, with
out discovering the Identity of the au
thor of the menace. The next day. to
his delight, he received an invitation to
the Churchills home. Of course he ac
cepted with avidity. On entering the
house he was met by his threatening
neighbor of the night before, who, he at
once discerned, must be Lord Randolph.
He proceeded no further than the en
trance hall, for Churchill beckoned in
the direction of the drawing-room and
out floated Lady Churchill. "This fel
low has come to apologize to you for his
remarks of last night," hissed Lord
Randolph. "Now," to the stranger,
"down on your knees!" Down went the
dandy, lisping out the most abject plea
for forgiveness. Then he was turned
over to a footman to be put lgnomini
ously out of the door, while the host
followed his retreating figure with a
roar of derisive laughter.

THE DECAYED MUSIC TEACHER.
Takea Oa at Her
The ordinary parent or guardian of a
girl with a "turn for music" will very
probably make his choice of a teacher
from those to whom he listens with the
greatest pleasure, forgetting that execu
tive skill and the gift of Imparting
knowledge are more often found sepa
rate than together, says the National
Review. The partially successful artist,
then, is wont to fall back upon sucfi
teaching as he can get If he wants to
make a livelihood out of his profession,
and so enormous is the number of those
who wish to take music lessons. If not
to "go in for" music thoroughly, that
the moderately efficient teachers have
hitherto had small reason to despair of
getting profitable pupils. These worthy
people, however, will before long be
einging a very different son?: In fact-
something like a repetition of the dirge
performed by the respectable "gentle
women" of the last generation, who,
after taking to teaching music for a
living on the strength of a dosen les
sons taken when they were young and
comfortably off, found their circle of pu
pils diminishing as the taste for music
widened and deepened. For such as
these the Increase in the number and
the rise In the efficiency of the regular
schools of music has been their, doom,
for not merely in London, where the de
cayed lady teacher never flourished.
but in every country town the standard
of taste has left them far behind,, and
nearly all such centers of their employ
ment are now "worked" either by actu
al representatives of the great educa
tional institutions of London, or their
places are filled by younger artists, ed
ucated at such places as the Royal
Academy of Music or the Royal Col
lege of Music, the principle of whose
joint organization in the matter of lo
cal examinations and the like, has been
doing a most Important work all over'
England during the short time of Its
existence. That inefficient teachers of
art should have the bread taken out of
their mouths is not a legitimate subject
for regret, though hard cases could no
doubt be cited, just as they can against
such a work as that done by the organ
ization of charity.

APVBNTUBES OF A BELL,
la a Charch Bteeple. Batted la stiver.
There is a bell now hanging over a
private . scboolhouse of a Mormon
prophet in Salt Lake City which has a
curious and somewhat amusing history.
It was the first church bell that ever
rang out over the plains of Iowa, hav
ing been erected in the tower of the
First Presbyterian church of Iowa City.
A few years after its installation trou
ble arose between the pastor and the
people over the question of salary,
which resulted in the former's making
an attempt to capture and carry away
the bell to "square accounts." The good
man had gone so far as to secure a lad
der and ascend to the roof of the
church, when the church officials got
wind of the affair and rushed to the
rescue of their property. They permit
ted the bell to be lowered to the ground,
but then seised upon it. loaded it In a
wagon and drove away. The ladder was
also simultaneously removed, leaving
the enraged parson wildly gesticulating
from his pulpit In the tower. This ex
citing event in the early days of Iowa
City was promptly embalmed In verse
by a local poet. The subsequent history
of this same bell has a touch of romance
about it. The "pillars" of the church
who took away the prize in the wagon
carried it, as afterward appeared, to a
river near at hand and buried it In the
channel. As it happened, one of the citi
zens concerned in the business after
ward developed a sympathy with the
Mormons. He imparted information
concerning the bell to another of like
sympathies, and through them Its re
moval was effected. It was conveyed se
cretly to the vicinity of Bloomington
now Muscatine on the banks of the
Mississippi river, and there deposited in
the channel of a stream known as Dev
il's creek. Thence it was carried to a
point near Montrose, 111., where It re
mained for some years buried in the
sand. It was then exhumed and carried
by some Mormons to Kanesville, in the
neighborhood of Council Bluffs, from
which point it was conveyed by them on
their journey across the plains to its
present resting place. It was not until
twenty years after that the original pos-
sessors of the bell found out where it
had gone. Upon the completion of the
Pacific railway some parties from Iowa
City, on their Journey across the conti
nent, stopped off at Salt Lake Ctty.
There they discovered an old bell sur
mounting a private schoolhouse, and
upon its margin the familiar words:
"First Presbyterian church of Iowa
City, 1846." Notice of the fact was
promptly communicated to the officers
