"What In nny old place Is Suburbanite do ing with n lawn mower to-day'r" was the final question, nnd resolving Itself into a committee il tho wholo house, the aggregation (excepting tho newspaper man. who had to go to town) ninrched upon the Suburbanite place. The Colonel nnd the letlred minister went first, the Lieutenant and the stockbroker followed. 3iul the commission meichnntnnd tho produce dealer tngged nloog behind. There were oth ers in tlio distance. Put. as the Colonel said: "We don't want to bring everybody In tho plnco down on him if he really has gone crazy." This was very thoughtful of the Colonel, and tho neighbors npnreclatod It. Just ns the procession, armed with shovels and brooms, reached the (Suburbanite gate, tho dootor drove tip in a sleigh. "Mrs. Barry telephoned to me I'd hettercome over at once. What's uuf" he exclaimed. They told him. "Huh! Walt till I Het some bromide for him." he said. "I supposo he's been working tco hard." "I BupposeTnpes won't publish anything about this to-morrow." said the retired minis ter, referring to tho newspaper man. "Of courso not." said the Colonel promptly. "But, doctor, suppose you let Puison ( nwles take your sleigh and drive down to tho station nnd nsk hitu. from the park, not to snyn word about it foi his wife's sake. You won't need Lour trap for some timo nnd Cawlescan drive ack and keen your horse from catching cold." All right," said the doctor: and having got the bromide nut he gav'o up his place- to tlio broker, who drove nv.ay ln the direction of the station, Tho others meantime prepared to continue their inarch of mercy, only now the doctor and tho letircd minister went first. They turned the corner of tho house and stopped. Before them moved n cloud of snow, out of which came the noise that nono of them could mistake, tho noise of In lawn mower. The nolehlorB stood aghast. It nil soemed uncanny. What wus it Was. It relr' The cloud of snow apjuoached the proces sion und when within a few feot of the head eamo lo a halt. As the cloud subsided fiom tho midst of It appeared by degrees tho faco and llgure of Mr. Suburbanite. "Hello!" said that gentleman breathlessly. "Hello!" replied the Procession ns ono mnn. "What's tho matter?'' nskrd the (yolonol. pushing his way between the doctor and tho retired minister. Matter.' Where?" cried Suburbanite. 'There's nothing the matter here ' "Look heie. Sub." said tho Colonel kindly, but llrmly. "what nre vou doing with a lawn mower to-day" And ho laid his hand on bnburbanlteVarm. "Lawn mower! Liwn mower be smashed 1" cried Suburbanite. "This is no lawn mower at least, it Isn't ono now: it's my new rotary wowploiiglil I made It in j self out of my lawn mower and have been trying It hro before uflng It out in the Mrcot. How did you know I was trying It'" "Wo heard it." said the Colonel. "Natutallv tut reeling that there could be only ono resson forn man using a lawn mower after n snow.stoini." said tho dcetor. slipping tho bioiniiie bottle Into his coat iioeket. "we came prepared foi iinvthlng. No.vwewantto know how tho new invention works " Suburbanite explained his machine. "Hrsi off." ho snlil. "I put n longer axle to the cuttiiic blades so that the ends might ex tend bevond the bearing points, nnd on tho ends of the axle I put lotnry knives. Now. ns I push thn machine the knlveb just chop tho snow up nnd throw it our of tho way. At least, that's what tin y should do. but ns a mutter of fact they just throw It into the air right in rov faco.

"Hut n hay cutter on runners and push It ahead : tho snow would slide Into t bo hopperand iouroutat tho other end." "Get );our feet wet," muttered the Colonel. "That's the trouble with this thing." con fessed Suburbanite, sadl). "but thon, you know, this is au experiment." he ndded, mere cheerfully. .. "Not a bad Idea." snld the retired minister. Now.

The retired minister took the machine then. "It's just us Barry says," he remarked, as ho Jirlpod his fncii. "Now, bore." waving u broom, "if this cutting knife were at an angle to tho longer axis of the machine, thn snow would he thrown off to ono side, and not Into the opeiator's face. Still, Mr. Suburbanite, 'tis good Idea, I shall be Interested in see ing it worked out." Tho doctor had been trying the lawn mower while the retired minister ws talking, and put In with Sub, old man, nut spikes nil over the perimeter ot tho roller, the wny they do on a steam roller i then they would prevent the tna chlno from slipping backward and would tear up the snow and make it easier for the knives to hstirtlo It," "With your permission, Mr. Buburbnlt." said I.lout Mnc. who did not know the In ventorso well us theothors, nud when lie had mad tils essay, he suggested- That's all very well as fur as it goes, but why. not use a larger slzo nud hitch a horse to It,-" "You forget, sir." said the Colonel, "that horses ro not allowed In the nark " Now.

Ho was tho last survivor but one of tho hunters ana trap pers of northorn Pennsylvania who roamed tho woods when tho elk stltl had Its home In that wlldemoss nnd wolvos and panthers prowled In such numbers thnt thoy woro the torror ot the settlements. Ho romembsred when thero wns nothing where tho present city of Brad ford now stands but a famous salt lick, to which there wns n, great elk runwny, begin ning near Iho headwaters of tho Clarion lllvor. not far from tho prosont tltoof tho Court House In lildgwar, tho county seat nf Elk county. Sovorat other elk runways or paths had tnelr centre nt that great salt Ihk. coming from all directions, and ovor thorn drovei of elk mado their way nt rortaln seasons of the year, to Indulgo the well-known lasto of tho door family for salt. The huntorsuscd lo Ko In ambush alone these paths nnd about tho lick, nnd sluughlor elk by the score as they passed along or came In to lick tho salt. Wash ington Park, In Bradford, covois tho, sltooi that great elk lick. Nelson was In nt the death of what was un doubtedly tho last oil: left In the Pennsylvania forests. This was In November. 1854. Ho was hunting nnd trapping in tho vicinity of what was known as Flag Swnmn, nt tho head of Bennett's Creek, along In October, and ono day ho heard the peculiar whistle that a bull elk mukosat tliit time or tho year, tho call for a mate. A heavy .rain that lasted several days came on, nnd prevented tho dogs from getting tho trail ot tho elk. Thn news that there was still ono moro elk loft In tho Slnnema honlng country spread among tho hunters, and the woods ffero searched ln all directions, but no one struck the trail. Among theso old-tlmo huntere was Jim Jacobs, a tull-bloodod Seneca Indian, whoso home was on tho Cattaraugus reservation With anothor Indian, ho went down Into tho Ponnsvlvanla wilderness to hunt for tho last ulk. In a snowstorm ono day In tho latter part o! November they struck tho elk's trail fresh In tho snow, near Nelson's cabin, nnd the chase began. Nelson joined tho Iudlaus. although ho was not wanted. Tho elk baffled pursuit for three days, dur ing two of which tho trail was followed through a blinding snowstorm, but tho huntois were as tireless as their game, and on the fourth day tho elk wns brought to bay by the dogs at a rock in tho forest near tho mouth of tho Clarion Illver. Whon tho hunters came up tho elk was surrounded by the docs, which It was fighting fiercely. Two of the pack al ready lay dend on the snow. Nelson raised his rifle to shoot, but tho Indian Jacobs was too quick for him, and sont a rltlo bullet through the elk's heart beforo Nelson's rifle cracked. Tho last elk died defying Its enemies. Nelson killed VSI elk In his time, and hun dreds of deer and bears. Nineteen panthers and more than a hundred wolves were nlso part ot his score, nil of them killed in what Is now known ns tho hemlock belt of Pennsylvania. Another thing that mado tho old woodsman lo cally famous was tho fact that for more' than forty years he woie tho same hat. It wnsahlgh hat. and of tho modo of fifty yenrs ago. nnd was o' tho best make of a hatter who In his day was celebrated not only In this country, but also abroad. This hat was onlv ono of many llko It that woro worn in the Tine Creek coun try years ngo. and oven to this day specimens of them, battered and time-worn, may be seen on tho bonds of teamsters, bark peelers, chop pers and others employed ln tho woods nnd at and nbout tho sawmills and tnnneiies In that region. Nelson's hat. llko the rest, had an In teresting history. The story of tho coming ot Olo Bull, tho v lo llnlst. nnd his colony of Norwegians into tho Potter county wilderness nearly half a cen ury ago. his purpose being to estnblish nn Ideal homo there for his countrvmon. has been often told, nnd Is familiar. Among thosn who came with Olo Bull Into the wilderness was Henry Andeisen. n young Norwegian, who was the great man's secretary nnd personal represen tative and agent in all transactions with tho colony. Tho main settlement of the colonists was at Cnrtor's Camp, on Kettlo Creek, which they named Oleona. Thero a largo goneral store was established nnd stocked with goods to supply the demands of the settlers. Tho wilderness was unbroken for miles around, except by tho small settlements of tho coin nlsts. Tho nearest railroad station was Corn ing. N. Y fifty miles distant. At about the time Olo Bull started his colony on Kettlo Creok Jenny I.lnd caino to this country Olo Bull was in Now York. Tho first concert to be given by Jonny Llnd nt Cas tlo Garden had been announced. An until then comparatively unknown New Y'ork liuttor named Genln. Ii3d made himself Uio talk of the town and tho countiy by buvlng tho first ticket for that concert nnd paying S'J50 for it. Thowido advertising this gave Genln made his hats the fashion, nnd laid tho foundation of the large fortune ho derived from thorn. The Genln Incident sharing with the great songstress tho tnlk ot the town. Ole Bull becamo jiosscssed of tho idea that his colony's store In the Pennsyl vania wilderness nt Oleoun must havo a sup ply of G.cnln's high hats. Ho nmclinsod twelvo dozen of the hats, the wholesale price of which was $48 n dozen, and shipped them to Oleona. By tho time the shipment got to its destination tho freight charges had Increased the cost of the hats to something like $00 a doren. rntortiinatcly for tho Investment, tho colonists could not see propriety or consis tency in their wearing Genln ultni-fashlonnlilo beaver lints nt their work of chopping down trees nnd grubbing out 6tumps. especially ns tho prico of the hats wus more than tho land tny were clearing cost them, so they iiur chascd none, nud tho hats wero stowed away The colonization experiment resulting within a year or two In disastrous failure, the colo nists, after a three ) cars' struggle for exist ence In tho wilderness, sold their lauds lor what they could get and moved away. But Hnnrv Andorsen remained nt Oleona nnd con tinued to run the backwoods store and tavern until his deuth, threo scars ngo. Tho hemlock nud Pino lumber nttructcd cunltnl to the Ket tlo Creek country, und tho Oleona btore be camo a profitable base of supplies. Not long after this chance In tho aspect of.tho region como about Petresen thought ho might bo able to realize something on the stock or Gonln high lints, and had an auction sale of them The sale was attended by woodsmen from miles mound, nnd by peoplo from the settle ments In tho nelghliorliood. Tho hats woro sold at an average jirlce of about 7.1 cents each and the odd sight of teamsters, choppers, hurk peelers, hunters nud trappers wearlngclothlne of the -onrsest material and most fantastic nut and yet adorned by glossy high hats of the fn mous Gemu make, became a common ono throughout that legion. Ono or the imiclinsers of a Genln hat nt that Bale was Peter Nelson and from that day. forty-three years ago. ho never woie nor iiossessed another hat. The hat grow gray and worn ann batterod. but the -ld hunter would not have exchanged It for the best new hut that could bo nmde. As said above. Nelson was ths last sur vivor but one of the hunters und trappers o the Pennsylvania wilderness. The last sur vivor Is Mis.
