EXCEEDINGLY SMART FAMILY
OF PIG STEALERS
Henry Wlloro Tell Bow Itrnlo Entered

Not Kill tlie Thieving Hrutea.
Henry Wilton, of Calaveras, declares that
the bears of tuat county are smarter and have
more "Rabo" ' ban tho human inhabitants of
any other cot nty in tho state. There are lots
of them, too black, brown, cinnamon, and
grizzly and all as fat as butter. They have
nuts a plenty, and there is hardly a pig pen
in the couuty that they haven't raided.
"They got away with my pork in great
shape," said A'ilson, wheu he was tolling a
party of frvsiuls at the Richelieu about the
surprising prevalence of accomplished bears
in the neighborhood of bis raucbe on Jones
Croek. "1 k lew how Ix-ai-s liked pigs, and so
1 took extra care of mine. 1 built a high
fence of heai y pickets around the pens and
sharpened thu pickets ursine as needles, so that
no bear could go over them without punch
ing himself full of holes. lu one pen I kept a
dozen hogs, t nd in another 1 hud two sows
and two litters of lino pigs- 1 saw the bears
strolling around nights, but they didn't get
any of the uogs for snnie ttme.
"The pigs were ulmut three months old,
nud, as 1 sit around iiu.l watched them
grow, 1 calculated the number of rich roasts
i would have out of the lot, when one morn
ing I missed one. There was uo way for a
P'S to get out, or anything to get in, but a
pig was gone all the same. 1 couldn't under
stand the disappea ranee at all. Two days
later another pig was missing, and in two
weeks my fo irteen pigs had boon reduced to
"Where t lose pigs had gone was more
than I cnulu tnuke out. The fence was all
up; not a picket was loose, and the points
were as sharp as ever. I had sat up pretty
late several times to watch the pens, but
now I decided to make an all night job of it.
1 wont to oed in the afternoon and snored
away until plumb dark, when 1 got up,
loaded my r fle for tho leat, and hid behind
a log about f-ixty yards from my pig corral.
"The moo i came out from behind some
fleecy clouds and shed a pale light on the
premises. I put in a jiood doal of the night
bobbing my head up from behind the log,
but no pig stealing ghosts, uo marauding
neighbors, do anything ever showed up.
"It was lonesome work, and I was getting
tired of it, v.-uen through the haze I saw a
big black lar walking along on his hind
feet, gesticulating with his paws, and grunt
ing complacently as he looked behind hkn.
Another betr was following iu the same
fashion, am. two cul brought up the rear of
the procesii n. It seemed to me that t,hey
were conversing together, and when the boss
of the pane pointed over to my ranch I con
cluded that tbey were tulking pork.
"The whi le outfit steered for my pig pen
and halted close to it. That di.lu't worry
me, as I cotldn't see bow the old bear, could
get over the fence to steal my pigs. I found
out pretty sxmtlmt I bad made t he acquaint
ance of a vrry accomplished and clever fain
"The grand old marshal of the parade
shinned up tu old oak that stood near the
fence, made a sign of caution to the others,
crawled out on a big limti and waited for
Mrs. Bruin, who was following him, after
boxing the tutrs of both cubs to make them
"Then I siw what I hadn't noticed before.
The limbcame well out over my pig pen. The
first old bear of this sty sturmiug compauy
advanced along the limb, which gradually
bent under bis weight until tho tips of the
boub touched the ground in one of the pens.
His partner went out along the limb in the
same way, and when he dropped to the
ground her weipht kept the limb bent.
"There was the dem-e to pay in the pig pen
fey this time. The old sow was charging
around in rent consternation, and the little
pigs were skipping about and keeping close
to her most of the tiniu. Bruin was on the
ground sizi ig up the lay out, and when the
old sow ma lea luuge at him as though to rip
bun, he gave her a comical look, as much as
to say: 'Oh what are you giving usP swiped
her one on die side of the jaw and laid her
"Then he grabbed the fattest pig of tho lot,
climbed up m the limb, which his side part
ner was ho ding down for him and slowly
wriggled u j toward the trunk of tha tree,
tbe she bea - receding us he advanced.
"That performance just Iwut all my going
a-flshing. The bears were coming down the
tree when I recovered from my astonishment
enough to remember that it was my pork that
was disappearing. 'Hold ou there I' I yelled,
'that is too stiff a game,' and whanged away
with my rifle Into the tree. I didn't try to
hit the bea-, because 1 rather admired the
cleverness .f the old thief, and t didn't want
to burst up such an interesting family.
"Well, si.-, there was a great tumbling and
rustling in the tree, the pig dropped squeal
ing to the round, and down scrambled tha
two bears srn foremost, looking a good deal
discomfited. As I bluzud away a few mora
times I m ule a little speech to the bears:
'Look here,' said I, 'I'll let you off this time,
but you come monkeying around my pig pen
again and you'll get hurt sure.'
"The little bears had scampered away, and
the she bear hurried after them as soon as
she touched the ground. The big fellow
cocked his bead ou one side, and I think be
winked at ine as he went away.
"Well, d you know I never lost any more
pigs. Tha: pig stealing outfit of plantigrades
just took in the situation as well as 1 did,
and we hail a commute understanding ou the
subject of pork from tliut tune out. That is
why I maintain that the bears of Calaveras
are smart sr than tne liears of any other
couuty in California." Suu Francisco Let

Little oi uo snow falls iu Dakota from
November to April. It is too cold to snow,
and th. blizzard is not a snow storm (in tbe
ordinary sonse of the word), but a cold wind
which cot its sweeping down from iiehring

miles an hour, bringing with it a blast of
finely po dured ice. lmagiue a thick fog,
all of ice, Mown along by a high wmd. The
tiny particles, coming with such velocity,

Nothing ci n stand be'ore it. Those buffalo

Mrs. Sheridan's Pension.
Washington City, Jan. 21. Speaker
Carlisle has agreed to recognize Hon. Tim
Camnliell to-dav. who will under the
sion of the rules introduce the bill granting a
pension oi e4,ouu per annum to Mrs. Sheri
dan, and ask that it be passed at once. Favor
able action will probably be taken, as accord
ing to precedent the lady. to entitled to a
pension. The stories which have recently
been circulated picturing Mrs. Sheridan as
being in destitute circumstances are entirely
unfounded. It is true that Gen. Sheridan
did not leave his widow in very good financial
circumstances, but it is also a fact that a
good friend, subsequent to the general's death,
invested a handsome amount in the name of
Mrs. Sheridan, and the latter is now drawing
interest therefrom, which in itself is quite
sufficient not only to keep the wolf from the
door, but to meet all the expenses of her
Hwlnrford Reiterates HI, Charge.
Washington Citt, Jan. 21. The speaker
Saturday laid before the house a report from
Governor Swineford on the Alaska Com
mercial company. He says that he reiterates
all be has heretofore said about the company.
Within the wide limit over which this com
pany operates, he says, the natives are little
better than mere serfs. "In most places," he
says, "they are subjected to the double rob
bery of being compelled to part with their
furs at less than half their value and in re
turn are charged two or three prices for the
goods they can only buy at the company's
stores." But t he evidence of this, he says, is
not to lo found lying around in Washington
City; it must lie got from the people them
selves by a visit of a congressional committee

Mulvey Wan Too "Thrifty" For Them.
Si'RiNO Yalmcy, Ind., Jan. 21. Twothous
and miners and company men have gone out
on strike hero. They were employed by the
Spring Valley Coal company, which is con
trolled by W. L. Scott, of Pennsylvania. The
cause of the trouble is that a man named
Thomas Mulvey, member of the Illinois Con
federation of Miners, refuses to nree to a
proposition that all the other miners have
agreed to, mid which is to divide their work
with the miners w ho had worked in shafts
Nos. 'c and 4, which were recently closed. The
strikers wnnted Mulvey discharged for his
olistinaey, and the company refused to inter
