Kxferlene of m Gentleman Who Was
Trying; to Bag a Rocky Mountain Sheep.
In the pursuit of Rocky mountain sheep
the hunter, to be successful, must have a
fondness for the mountains, a snre foot,
gool wind and a head which no height will
turn. These requisites, with patience and
per everance, will, sooner or later, as the
hur ter gaina experience, reward him with
ample returns. Sometimes, however, the
unexpected will happen, and the following
tale will serve as an example: We were
wel. up in the mountains, and almost any
hour of the day sheep could be seen with
There were two fine rams in particular
that we could see about a mile and a half
from camp, occupying the slope of a rocky
poiitor proinoutory that jutted out from
a spur of the range.
V ith due care and not making a sound
I made a most successful stalk. Peering
over the ledge I just raised my head
enough to be sure my game was still there.
They were there, sure enough, within seventy-five
yards of me, totally unconscious
of danger, when all of a sudden they
sprang to their feet and dashed away from
below me as though possessed of a devil.
I fired hastily, but of course missed, and,
turning, tried to run back to head them
off, wouoVring what hud started them,
as I knew 1 had made no noise. In a few
seco.ids I had the mortification of seeiug my
would tie victims bounding across the nar
row ledge that separated them from the
mountain. However, I thought with sat
isfaction that at least one would meet its
deat.i from my compauion iu hiding, but,
alasl although the rams almost knocked
him down, his cartridge missed fire.
Regaining my shoes. I soon joined my
companion and then discovered the curi
ous hdventure I had been made the sub
ject of. It seems that when I had reached
a po nt well down on the promontory I
must have disturbed a cougar which was
evid ntly there for the same purpose I
was, and which had stealthily followed me
as I proceeded toward the sheep. Old
Woody described it as highly amusing I
sneaking down after the rams, and the
panther sneaking down upon me. Archi

The Student of llutnan Nature.
That human nature is human nature
and will probably continue to be to the
end cf the w.irld was again demonstrated
at an up town club the other afternoon.
Three gentlemen were sitting in the
smoking room of the club. The subject in
hand was a general discussion as to how
little there is in life which is new and as
to tbe tendency of tbe human mind to run
in rut a.
"Watch me for half an hour and I will
prove it," said one of the party.
With that the speaker took from his
pocket a silver dollar and laid it on the
table. Soon he heard a member of the
club approaching, and taking the coin in
his band he began to spin it iu the air. As
the lart comer entered the room the man
who was proving his argument allowed
his co n to fall to the floor near the feet of
the newcomer, who at once stooped and
picked it up, saying: "Halloo! Money fly
ing through the air! That's fortunate, for
I needed a dollar."
Tbe 3 the spider hail his fly, and his air
was very serious as he said: "I'll give you
anothor dollar if you wish, but that coin is
a pocket piece and its date is tbe same as
that of my birth, 1S6L"
The victim withdraws the coin from his
pocket and sees that the date thereon is
1865, and promptly says so.
"No jsense," purrs the spider, "1 have car
ried the coin for many years and it is dated
1861, the year I was born."
"Do you think I am blind" persists the
fly. "I tell you the date is 18G5."
"I will bet you the cigars for the party
just to decide the thing," says tbe student
of huttsn nature, "and the man who is
right iays "
"Done," says tbe unsuspicious fly.
"Vei y well, you're right," said the spider,
"it is 1 iS. Suppose you order." New York
Tha Result of P.rnlyil..
One of the most noticeable results of a
slight attack of paralysis is the tendency
to subf titute the wrong word or even sen
tence f r that which is intended, quite un
consciously on tbe part of the speaker,
who cannot comprehend why he is not un
derstood. To a patient who felt very
much discouraged because he asked to
have ti e window shut when he meant to
aay "Fetch me some water," Dr. A ,
who is a noted specialist in such troubles,
related the following incident:
"A prominent man in Boston who had a
slight hock, hut who apparently had quite
recovered, wished some nails, and went
into a hardware shop to purchase them.
'I want a dozen or so of archangels, ' he
said to the somewhat mystified clerk. 'We
do not keep them, sir,' was the response.
'That U odd,' said Mr. H , and he went
into atotber shop and asked ugain for
archangels. Again the smiling clerk told
him tlu.t they did not have them. Quite
vexed athis failure to procure such simple
things as small nails, he tried the tbiid
time w th like result, and finally gave it
up in despair.
" M ni versaw anything like the stupidity
of these shopkeepers,' he declared to his
wiferat dinner. 'I went into three hard
ware shops after archangles and could not
get the-n.' 'After what!' exclaimed his
wife, and it was not until sbe explained
her astonishment that he realized what a
mistake he had made." New York Trib
une. Romans Often Ifnoraut of Their Rollca.
What we are in the habit of seeing daily
soon eeeses to make a deep or sharp im
pression on the mind, and to many of
he Romans, even of the better class, who
re ignotant of history and have no liter
ary training, the very names of the relies
pA semalns of antlo.uity, which so deeply
Impress the stranger, are often unknown.
An odd instance of this occurred on the
flzss visit of the queen of Italy to Rome.
As she paaeed for tbe first time through
tbe Cono and oaught a glimpse in passing
of tbe eolumn of Aurelius, she eagerly
turned to the gentleman who accompanied
her (who was one of the gentlemen of the
eonrt) and asked, "What is thatoolumnf"

tn addressed, "that ohl that ft bm
