J. P. Jones, who lives near Perhama,
Crook county, had a rather startling ad
venture with a cougar. He was speak

limiting exj-wiitkm to a place about 3))
miles from Pcrhania, taking with me an
Irish staghonnd and an English pointer,
I brought down a ler and a brown
bear, which 1 left at a farmhouse, and
bagged a uunilier of wild pigeons and
other fowl. While returning home
about 10 o'clock at night along a lonely
roal aNrtit five miles from Perhama,
noticed what, seemed to lie two tall of
fire in a tree but a yard ahead of tne,

the rnnTL At t he same instant my horse.
which is what is known in the Vcw
counties as an 'original herder," drew
up with a start led neigh, almost throw
ing me from the saddle. 1 took a cl
look at the thing in the tree and saw that
it wa a cougar crouched for a spring.
"As I tried to unstrap mv rifle the an
imal srang. but missed its mark and
iwssed jtict over the horse's ne-k and
about two inches from ine. It rolled ia
tlie ro-nl, but recovered and xpraug again,
this time at the tMirsr's throat. The
horse bucked and threw me to tlie
ground, half stunning me. The cougar
then rnoheil upoa tne, bnt the stag
bound, wliich had been standing by, bay
ing fnrk-uj.lv, corralled it. There was a
brief but terrific fight, and the dog lay
dead not five feet from me. Tlie poiuter
had disappeared, while the horse stood
trembling in every limb. The panther
again airaug at him, landing upon bis
back, and away the horse went.
I recovered my feet in a few minutes,
unstrapped my rifle and started in pur
suit. Five hundred yards from the scene
of theencounter I found the horse stand
ing still and the cougar lying dead at
his feet. The horse bore marks of the
cougar's claws upon his back, and his
flrsh was torn in several places. Tlie
cougar's head was smashed, presumably
by the horse's heels. I cannot account
fur the result of the strange encounter
except by the theory that a limb of a
large oak tree, hanging low and directly
over the road, struck the cougar and
swept it off the horse's latch, and the
horse took advantage of tlie opmrtunity
to trample him to death. The horse is
vicious, as all 'original herders' are.
These horses have been known to fight
for hours until one or the otiier fell, but
this is the first time 1 have heard of one
fighting a cougar. 1 have the animal's
skin and will keep it as a memento of
tlie encounter. The horse was not lwdly

The Popolo Ronuino relates the fol
lowing authentic fact, without giving
more than the initial of the person to
whom it occurred, a distingnislied young
lawyer of literary reputation, who stated
that lie could not give tlie most remote
explanation of it: -Some years since, on
a hot sit aimer afternoon, the Awocato
A, together with liis wife and two
Children, left -Mr house in Via Gaeta at
o'clock jimisely for an evening walk.
He was in good health and spirits, but
just as they crossed tlie street be was
suddenly seised with a shock through his
whole body, which caused all the blood
to leave his face and obliged him to sup
port himself against the walL His wife
in alarm assisted him to steady himself,
anxiously asking what was the matter.
''Herecovered himself speedily and was
able to continue the walk, only describ
ing an unaccountable perturbation and
humming ia his ears. The evening
brrexe and exercise gradually calmed
and revived him, and be completely re
gained bis nsnal frame. They went to
visit some friends and then rested at a
cafe, when toward half past 11 o'clock a
storm which had been gathering began
the first blasts of wind, and they harried
home, Scarcely arrived indoors, the
Awocato A harried to remove some
flowerpots from a balcony over the
street, taking a lamp with him. The
wind extinguished the light, so be bad
to continue bis operations in the dark,
only illuminated now and then by the
lightning flashes. He was just lifting
the last flower vase, an ornamental one,
given him by his mother, when be was
startled by seeing a kind of black veil
waving upward close in front of him,
which, as it rose, assumed a human form.
Very much disturbed, he immediately
related the strange apjiearance to his
wife, and the perturbation before expe
rienced again overcame him, leaving
him unable to sleep all night. Early in
the morning came a telegram from bis
brother at Ferrara stating that their
mother bad been suddenly seised with
cerebral syncope the previous evening at
fl o'clock and bad expired at midnight,
just as the Awocato A had seen the
black veil vanish into space,

A Sfel-uiv SACRIFICE.

One of the nowt remarkable and deli
cate operations in the linegf what is
known as skin grafting was performed
at the city hospital Saturday morning
by Dr. Charles R. Barber and several of
the house Mirgeons. A little over two
weeks ago Arthur Wheeler, aged 5 years,
living at M Herman street, was playing
near his house with some otherchildren.
They started a bonfire of dead leaves.
While Arthur was running about the
flames, he stumbled and fell into the fire.
His coat caught fire, and before the
flames could 1 extinguished his entire
breast, abdomen and one side were fright
fully burned. The boy has been ever
since the accident in a precarious condi
tion, the burns beiug so extensive that
no new skin could form.
It w.is at last decided that the only
Uiiug that could save the little sufferer's
life was to ingraft the tkin of some
healthy person on the burned iwrts, and
efforts were made to secure some one to
consent to Mich an operation. It was
suggeated at last that Miss Minnie
Wheeler, the I "-year-old sister of the boy,
would 1 just the subject. Miss Wheel
er nutiiruily demurred at first to such a
proposition, bnt finally consented when
she was convinced that her brother's life
was at si ake.
Saturday moriiiug Miss Wheeler and
her little brother were taken to the City
hospital that lieiug considered a better
place than the home of the iareuts and
the operation was performed. Miss
Wheeler was placed uuder the influence
of ether, and strips of skin from both
thighs and one of the hips were shaved
off with sharp razors and transferred to
the Itsly of the little brother. A slight
idea of the o-rnlioii may lie gained
when it is stated that enough of tlie epi
dermis to cover two square fe-t of the
burned Is'j's lody was removed from
the young woman.
One piece of skin that was removed
extend. -d from just a'oove the knee fully
nine inches along tiie thigh. The girl's
limb- were s vt hed iii b.iudaes. aud she
was takeii home in au ambulance, the
boy remaining in the hospital. It is ex
pected that a new cuticle will have put
in an ape;ir.iiice inside of HI days, and
that Miss Wheeler will have entirely re
covered liefore the s of NoVelll'oer. .
Nothing can lie determined as to the
success of grafting the skin oil Arthur
Wheeler for 10 days to come, but it is
believed that the operation will result in
saving the Isiy's life. Rochester Demo
