A FIGHT WITH A LYNX.
Jlin ftrrrr Had a Desperate Straggle With
k Savage Ilobcat.
The ugliest appearing animal that
ever walked a log, killed a rabbit or
fought a trap is tho lynx, which is just
as ugly as it looks ten months in the
year and somewhat uglier during tbe
other two. .Not only will tbe lynx tight
anything that walks the woods, but it
will also tackle a visitor from the clear
ings, be ho man or dog or half grown
calf, if the occasion offers.
Jim Berry was hunting up in Maine,
about 40 miles north of Greenville,
when he and his friend suddenly camo
upon the carcass of a caribou which a
bear was eating. Tim bear made itself
scarce, much to Jim's regret, as be
wanted to kill tbe Lear. Without say
ing anything to his friend he left camp
the next day and started for the carcass,
intending to watch it, in tho hope that
the bear would return. Ho waited and
watched until about 3 o'clock iu tho
afternoon, when be began to think of
returning to camp. A soft footfall back
in the woods the crafty step of some
wild animal just then sounded in his
ears. Pretty soon the bear was chewing
tho caribou meat, and Jim could sen it
plainly. He leveled his buckshot gun
nml pulled tho trigger, when tbe wab
bling muzzle was pointed in what ho
thought was the right direction. The
beast went down, and Jim started for it.
Then ho stopped, with bis mouib open.
Tbo beast had leaped to his feet and
jumped sideways, with its bank up.
Jim knew the yell, and lie also rocog
li i zed the humped back. It was a wound
ed lynx spoiling for a fight. Not having
time to level bis gun to sboot, the man
clubbed it, and the blow stunned the
cat a little, but the beast got in a rake
on the man's leg and tore his trousers
and hide too. Another frantio sweep of
the gnu barrel laid the beast flat, and
then a revolver bullet killed tbe animal

The Cariosity of Voting.
Tho Abrrdcen system of electing a
lord rector is a curiosity of voting. It is
n relic of tbo mediaeval system of Paris,
long since abandoned by the Parisians
and greatly modified by the other
Scotch universities. For the purposes of
voting all tbe undergraduates arc di
vided into four notions, this, of course.
being a meaningless romnant of tbe
mediieval system by which the students
of different nationalities elected as
chairmau a rector to defend their rights
against civic interference. There ore
four nations at Aberdeen. Mar, Bucban
and Moray represent students born north
of tbe Grampians. Angus stands for the
rest of the world! On the voting day
each nation is locked up in a room by
itself. But the students at Aberdeen do
not give a direct vote for tho rectoral
candidates. They vote for a student who
represents them, called tbe procurator.
Alter the recording of the votes, which
are given orally, the procurators meet
in another room, nnd tho successful
candidate is he who has a majority
of nations. If tbe nations are equally
divided, tbe winner is be who has the
numerical majority of votes. London

Blood is essential to perfect health. This
is a scientific fact. Every organ, nerve
and muscle must be fed and nourished.
It is the function of the blood to furnish
this nourishment, and the quality of
nourishment these organs receive depends
on the quality of the blood. If the blood is
Pure and full of vitality it will properly
feed and support the whole mechanism
of the body. If it is poor and thin
disease and suffering will be inevitable.
The great success of Hood's Sarsaparilla
in curing stubborn cases of scrofula,
eczema, rheumatism, neuralgia and
many other similar troubles, is based
upon its power to enrich and purify the
This is also the reason for the great popu
larity of 'lood's Sarsaparilla as a building
up medicine. By making pure, rich blood,
it gives vigor and vitality even in try
