A HUNT FOR NOBLE GAME.
TRAILING 1 HE MOUNTAIN GOAT IN
THE WILDS; OF IDAHO.
A Chicago Traveling Man Telia Hie Ea
parittnee In Bringing Down the Fleet
Footed and Rare Animal He Had a
Genuine Attack of "Buck Fever."
I left Boise City, Idiho, with a half breed
guide and two pack tiulea. Our destination
was the Sawtooth r.inge of mountains, the
only spot in the Ui ited States where the
Rocky mountain goat is to be found. After
a tedious tramp of a 'veek we found ourselves
near a lofty peak of t je range known as Sil
ver mountain. Hert wo pitched our camp
aud beffan tho Imnt for game. Two days
passed without success.
Tho third day, jt st before sundown, a
sharp exclamation from the half breed, fol
lowed by a conf jseil jabbering of English,
French and Indian words, suddenly put my
tired senses on the alt rt.
My eyes quickly fo lowed the direction in
which his linger po ntol Outlined against
tho aky on a point of rocks far above us, .gaz
ing down evidently with mingled fear and
curiosity, stood a m iminoth male specimen
of the identical gam' for which our pilgrim
ago had been made to tho Sawtooth range.
Ho was apparently out of reach of my rifle,
but, nevertheless, giod judgment deserted
mo just when it w;is needed and I blazed
away nt tho old fellow The bullet knocked
up a cloud of dust flf y feet below him.
He gave a contemptuous snort, reared on
his hind legs, turned "n them as if on a pivot
and again stood facing us. I had my rifle to
my shoulder again by this time, having
raised the sight? a trifle, and gave him the
benefit of another sh t, this lime making the
dirt fly just under Ins nose. Another snort
and ognin he stood erect and pirouetted like
a lallet dancer.
THE nrsT VICTIM.
Just then 1 heard the report of a gun by
my side. Tho half breed had tried bis hand,
and with much better success. His bullet
struck tho goat squarely in the breast and
peuetrated his heart. He gave a shrill whis
tling cry, as if of warning, sprang into the
air, and thon his bod;-came rolliug and tum
bling down the hillsMe until it landed at our
"There's moro of them where be came
from," said the half breed, as he quietly drew
his knife and began 1 1 remove the hide while
the body still qui vend. I wanted to rush up
tho hillside in hot puisuit, but my companion
"Xo use now; all pono, wait till morning,"
said he. "To-morro'v wo get all we want."
He was us cool as tho mountain stream
which ran down the hillside a short distance
away, while I was enperieucing a genuine at
tack of "buck fever" and shaking like a leaf.
However, 1 managed to recover my compos
ure, and examined ti e animal before me. He
wa9 one of the largest of his species, and must
have weighed over f 00 pounds. In build I
know of nothing he more nearly resembled
than tho little black bears in Lincoln park.
His body was largo and heavy, and his legs
short and stunted, ihit bis bidol It was the
prettiest pelt I had e i'er set eyes on during all
my experience in the northwest. Snowy
white in color, with long, straight hair like
an Angora gout, it almost made my mouth
water as I looked 1 1 it, and in a moment I
had reached into my pocket, pulled out a ten
dollar gold piaco, and given it to the half
breed with the und Tstanding that it was to
bo my individual pr perty. I have it now In
my home in Hydu Park, and no amount of
money could buy it I rom me, although I was
offered five times i j price shortly after my
return to Boise City, and could have sold it
on several occasions inre then at a handsome
THE SECOJiD DAY'S HT?TT.
Early next morn ng wo swallowed some
coffi-e, nibbled a n acker, and, shouldering
our guns, started up the mountain side to
wards the spot when- tho goat had been killed
the uight befora Reaching the point of
rocks, the half breed searched for a few mo
ments and then said
I followed him. The snow was crushed
and broken for sevei al hundred yards, show
ing that immediately after the death of the
leader the flock of a dozen or more goats
which had beun witl. him had suddenly stam
Iiedud and fled wit ioutany particular "im
except to get away irom the spot Then the
trail narrowed, and Anally it appeared as If
sumo of tho younget bucks bad taken com
mand and led the retreat. Day was just
breaking, and above us tho peaks were glint
ed with the gold of the coming sun. The
half breed broke It .to a rapid trot, and it
taxed me to the utm t to keep up with him.
For nearly a mile ho kept up hisKjieed, and
then suddenly stopped.
"Not far off nov," said the half breed.
"They sleep pretty close to here."
Thon with a wiming to go slow and
watch every footstep I made him lead the
way. We were approaching a uarrow point
of rocks, and just before reaching It he
"Around there," was the brief injunction.
"Me climb over rot ks and scare 'em back,
Thon you get shot at 'cm."
My nerves were li!:e steel by this timo, and
concealing myself lhind a tree I waited.
The hull breed wriggled over the eak and
disapjieurcd. Hah iin hour aud not a sound.
Then I henrd far jwny two faint reports.
Instantly I braced t lysclf. In a few seconds
the flock came rucijg round the corner and
came straight toward me. I bad placed my
self so that 1 calculated they would pass
scarcely a dozen yni ds away. Past mo they
raced, and I lot tut lender have it squarely
behind the shoulder, lie sprung to his feet
and theu dropped d wd. A female goat just
behind him stumbled and fell over the body.
The others huddled together, and I emptied
shot after shot itito ; bo Cock from my repeat
er until all except lour suddenly turned and
sped back in the di -fiction from which they
originally ramo. Tiiey had scarcely disap
peared around the rocks before 1 heard the
half breed's guu. t o bad hurried up on the
trail, and was just in time to do some lively
work. The frightet ed animals Anally raced
back post me; but I had not expected this
move, and so they v-ere out of danger before
I could use my gun.
On being assured that it was useless
to pursue the gams farther I broke camp
and camo back to I olae City, and thence to
Chicago, bringing with me the half dozen
bides you see theri and also my treasure.

COJLD NOT RESIST.
Thi. Feelkali i:et of a Stlnry Detroit Man
and How It Wan Won.
There is one man in Detroit who knows the
seductive force of fair woman's pleadings as
he never knew it before. His friends know
it, too, and are not likely to let him forgel it
soon. A well known skinflint wagered a sup
per with some friends that be could visit a
charity fair, remain a whole evening in the
hall and siend uothing but his time.
The evening came and tha venerable vic
tim boldly euterod into temptation with a
jaunty air and a beaming countenance. But
there was one weak spot in his armor. Be
fore tho charms oflovely womnnhood his bet
ter nature blooms out as the flowers with the
coming of spring time. It was ou this frailty
that his friend of the afternoon had banked,
and toward it had directed the efforts of the
shrewd daughters of Eve, who were in the
plot and bent on winning. They were on
their mettlo, and calloused indeed -must be
the heart of the man who could resist their
Every gun was trained on him right
enough, but woman is nothing if not strategic.
It was not an onslaught, but an insidious and
deceptive advance. Much depended on the
first move, and it was made with, fascinating
skill. A most winsome matron, an acquaint
ance of the susceptible skinflint, mot him with
a flutter aud a smile t lint set his heart thump
ing like a trip hammer. Sho was a vision of
loveliness, a revelation of the charms and
graces that lure as they like. And how sho
greeted him. It would arouse the gallantry
Of the veriest cannibal, however hungry. It
would warm the blood hi a mummy. Her
eyes, her parted lips, hor flushed checks and
bewitching smile all bespokea welcome toone
who was received among the favored. Sho
grasped his ana with lioth her dimpled hands,
swung half in front of him as she leaned for
ward to look into his softening faco, and,
with the sheer force of her presence, led him
to his fate. Soon the blushing victim was
surrounded by a bevy of laughing, chatting,
merry and lovely womeu. He felt himself
envied by every other man in the bouse, and
self inflation was the inevitable consequence.
"This is Miss , of Chicago, Mr. ,"
and he bowed to a personification of ideal
"Oh, Mr. , I've just been trying my
fortune at the flying jenny. It's so fascinat
ing and I've been so lucky. Do come and
"Yes, yes, do come, Mr. . "Why, it's
just too nice."
"No, no, come along; explain afterward.
We'll all try it."
Mr. hesitated, but when he saw the
block looks of the other mon cost upon him
he yielded without mental reservation and
joined tho charge with a shout, a laugh and a
rheumatic skip. He was simply led as a lamb
to the slaughter. He tackled the flying
jenny and entered upon a mad rush that took
in chances on the phaeton, the harness, the
yacht, the gold watch, the guns, everything
as it preenttd itsolf to view. In the wild
whirl he ran hort, but borrowed 20 of a
friend, and "on with the dance." Ho was the
king bee in the busy hive and having more
fun than everybody elso combined.
Suddenly his friend of the afternoon ap
peared and innocently asked him out to the
"Suppm bo bio wed I" he had no appetite
for earthly food. He was in the seventh
heaven of delight, soaring through an elysium
of bliss unalloyed, and he'd stay there as long
as his pocketbook held out.
The end came at last, and then the chaffing
of those who were into the scheme. Never
was a man more mercilessly guyed than the
usually close fisted citizcu. He finally sought
relief for himself and the rest of the fellows
in the flowing iowl. It flowed until the w
hours, and shortly before tho electric lights
made way for sunrise Mr. had drawn up

Old World America.
It was observed by Hugh Miller that, al
though this continent is the New World in
relation to its discovery by civilized man, it
is an old world, much older than Europe, in
relation to tho types of its animals and plants.
For example, the big trees of California are
of older stock than any trees now growing in
Europe. The question has been raised if
some of the races of Siberia and Eastern
Asia have not sprung from American abo
rigines, rather than our Indians to have come
from that quarter.
In the case of such a plant as tho common
heather of England and Scotland, found
growing wild in Nova Scotia, it is a matter
of curious interest to determine whether it
is native to the soil or has boon introduced
Professor Lawson, of Halifax, decides that
the plant had its home hers. To bis view
there was a time when the plant was abund
ant in our northern lands, and its present
rare occurrence marks a dying out of the
species on this side of the ocean. Its vigor
ous growth in Europe is due to the circum
stance that it is there a young plant on a vir
It was Buffon's idea that all the forms of
animal and plant Ufa common to the two
continents were introduced here after the
discovery by Europeans. The idea was nat
urally suggested by the rapidity with which
this continent was peopled and stocked with
all domestic animals and cultivated plants.
The teaching from Buffon's day to a recent
period has been to the same effect. Of late
the evidence has been accumulating to prove
this view to be not only falsa but directly the
reverse of what had been the real order of
succession. Youth's Companion. -
