A BROKEN HEARTED BUCK.
Tath of a Deer from Grief Over the
Lose of at Barnyard Steer.
Four years ago Horace F. Albright, of
Knob Mountain, caught a male fawn in
the Compton woods and petted it until it
followed him to his home, more than two
miles distant. The little animal soon an
swered to the name of Dick, and in a few
weeks became very much attached to one
of Albright's calves. At first the calf was
shy of the fawn, but Dick chased it around
the pasture, cornered it up and licked it
on the head until it became fond of him, and
after that they were almost constantly to
gether. Dick did not pay the slightest attention
to the other calves on the place, and dur
ing the summer and fall Dick and the calf
fed and played together in the fields and
woods near by. When the cattle were
"yarded" in the winter Dick stuck close to
the calf and lay down in the straw with it,
and if any of the animals came near his
chosen companion while they were resting
under the shed Dick would bristle up and
drive them away. The calf grew to be a
steer, and Mr. Albright began to work him
with a mate. He was driven on the off
side, and Dick walked by him whenever
the team was at work. He licked the steer
on ibe head and neck and the steer did the
Bame thing to him.
If Dick happened to wander away in the
woods to browse while Mr. Albritrht was
lagging, the steer would low for him as a
cow docs for her calf, and Dick would
come bounding and bleating through the
brush, and he and the steer would lick
each other as though they had lx-on sep
arated all U.iy. Dick never noticed the
other steers in the least, and when Mr.
Albright betran to stable the steers Dick
made such a fuss over being kept out of
the barn that Mr. Albright enlarged the
off one's stall so that Dick could lie with
his companion at night.
The all ect ion of the buck and stoer was
never lessoned in the slightest; infact.it
became stronger right along, and Mr. Al
bright allowed them to be together the
year around. One day white Mr. Albright
was drawing a load of logs down the
mountain, the off steer lay down in the
road and began to groan and froth at the
mouth. Mr. Albright immediately un
yoked him and tried to get him to stand
up. Dick was walking by his side when
he lay down, and the moment the steer be
gan to groan and roll the buck got down
on his knees, licked the steer's face, bleat
ed mournfully and showed remarkable
sympathy for the suffering brute.
The steer grew worse, and in a few min
utes stretched out on his side and died.
The buck continued to moan and lick the
steer's head, and Mr. Albright left him
there, drove the other steer to the foot of
the hill and went off to get a man to help
him skin the dead animal. When he re
turned, Dick was still on his knees by the
steer's head. He was bleating piteously
and licking the face and neck of his lifeless
companion. Mr. Albright drove him away
several times, but he came back repeatedly
and seemed to be determined totay by the
Then they started to skin the steer, and
when they had removed the hide from the
head and chopped the horns off, the buck,
bleating furiously, stamped his hoofs,
bounded back and forth and acted as
though he was crazed with grief.
The spot was half a mile from Mr. Al
bright's place, and every day Dick visited
it, refused to eat and became so thin and
weak that he could not walk. Mr. Al
bright tried to force food down his throat,
but it was useless, and one morning he
found poor Dick lying dead in the barn
yard. Scran Ion Cor. St. Louis Globe
Onit for the Minister.
An old minister in the south sideof Glas
gow, who was noted for his habit of dishing
up old sermons again and atrain, was one
day advertised to preach in a suburban
church at the anniversary service there.
An old woman, who in days gone by had
sat under his ministry, but who had now
removed from his neighborhood, deter
mined to go in and hear him preach on this
particular occasion. After the close of the
service she waited on the clergyman, who
greeted her cordially and asked what she
thought of his discourse. "Eh, man," she
replied candidly, "it's a lang time sin' I
first heard ye preach that yin, sir, and I've
heard ye at it a guid whecn o' times sin'
"Ay, Janet," said the minister; "how of
ten do ye think ye've heard it, na?" "Oh,
alKKit a dizzen o' times, sir," she replied.
'An' div ye mind it a'" said the minister.
"Aweel, maybe no it a', sir." "Wecl, I see
I'll need to preach it to ye again, Janet,"
said the minister, and Janet felt that she
had been sold for once. The minister cer
tainly scored. Scottish American.
Silkworms That lie.
The silkworm story is a twice told tale.
Everybody knows how the green, wriggling
creature, fed fat on mullerry leaves, spins
himself a shining shroud, out of which he
will come with wings thnt is, if he comes
at all. For the most part he does not.
The cocoons meant for reeling are kiln
dried until the dormant life goes out en
tirely. The largest and fairest are saved
for seed. Out of them come the moths
that lay eggs for a new generation. Three
to six hundred is the usual number.
The eggs, called grain, are subject to a
fungus that does not destroy their vitality,
but makes worms hatched from them un
healthy. They toil not, neither do they
spin. Instead they die, weak and languid,
to the disgust of the growers and the de
pletion of their pockets. Chicago Tribune.
The Galapagos Tortoises.
The Galapagos tortoises are the only sur
vivors of an ancient race of huge turtles
which lived so long ago as the early part
of the tertiary epoch. Specimens weigh
ing from (XX) to 700 pounds have been cap
tured, and there is authentic record of one
individual taken which tipped the beam at
670 pounds. However, nearly all of the
very big ones have been caught and de
voured, and it will not be long before the
race is exterminated literally "eaten off
the face of the earth by gluttonous man."
It is reckoned that 10,000,000 of these
turtles have been taken from the islands
since their discovery. Boston Transcript.
Shelley Liked Plums.
The poet Shelley was walking one day
in Loudon with a respectable solicitor
when Shelley suddenly vanished and soon
after as suddenly reappeared. He had
entered the 6bop of -a grocer and returned
with some plums, which he offered to the
attorney with great delight. The man of
fact was as much astonished at the offer as
Shelley was at his refusal. Youth's Com
