The Indian with a white man was hunting birds with a small target rid- when the rings brought to bay a she liear with cutis. The o'd beast resented the interference with her peace and rest und became greutlv enraged at the approach of the hunters. Khe charged upon the Indian who made good time over the meadow till the heal demonstrated his ability to win the beat when Matthew turned and tired the little 22 title full in her face. This m ule the liear more terrific in its onslaught. It bore the Indian down upon the ground and began to crush bone and muscle with his strong jaws. She lore off the clothing and took shreds 01 tlesli with the rags. The white man who hud only another little 22 gun came Imldly to the Indian hoys rescue. He tired the little bullets into the most vital HjMits of the lieat 's anatomy. The y,ântï rightbut' Nat was pul to sleep by a foul blow and was carried ho ne by : some friends 1 least soon took trtglit and left the prostrate Indian, hut not till lie lay helpless and insensible from the juries received. The white hunters have organized to destroy this mail eating liear. This same neust or an other in the same region at one time fought Nat Wep, the big Nez Peri-e tough, to a finish. Nat rode his hear down and tried to kill it 11 hand t A Young Horse Thief. .billies Uruce of Colfax was arrested in Mils city Sunday for horse stealing. This young man had brought to the city I tic day ta-fure ten head of horses. On Sunday morning a dispatch came to the officers to look out for him. Felix Warren made the arrest as the young man was in ihe act of riding away, he haying warning that he was suspected. The tiorses it seems were the pro perty of a widow lady living near Pullman. This young mun had pro nosed to buy the stock and had ad vanced five dollars as purchase money, before I lie bargain was closed, how ever, lie discovered the absence of the family from the ranch and lie drove the horses uway wit limit paying for them, taking along some wliieli were not included in Ihe proposed sale. In getting (lie h rses away he cut the wile fences. This act attracted suspi ion that theft was intended and young bruce was suspected of the rime. He wus followed to this city and captured in 04 hours after the tiorses were stolen. This young man 'olfux and will probably serve a term in Washington's reform school. -- C.

As deputy marshal for tin past two years Mr. Warren lias been a tireless enemy of all law breakers rich ami poor, and for this reason some are arrayed against him.
