California and had become poorer than ever.
The richest veins of silver in Chile were found
la 1831 by a mountaineer named Godoy, who
hunted guanacos in the Andes. One day, being

brightness of a projecting part. He chipped
the stone with has knife and Anding that he
could cut it like cheese, to use his own expres

A Gro Mule Whose only cemem We Ise

inem the ourlsregournaL
Some year. age I was the owner of a large
iron gray mule named Pete. Peto was the
pride of my heart, the apple of my eye, my
spoiled favorite. Pot, and I were traveling
over a spur of the Wahoatch mountains, and
not having anything particular on my mind I
was enjoying the scenery, which In that region
is very fne. Pete may have been occupied for
awhile in the same manner, but if he was he
soon turned his attention elsewhere, for his
whinny reminded me that it was dinner time,
and both Pete and I were hungry.
Accordingly, when we came to a nies grassy
place I tethered Pate to a tree, allowing him
about twenty feet of range, and, taking some
ham and crackers out of my haversack, sat
down on a fallen tree to eat them. While I
munched the ham and crackers Pete cropped
the fresh grass, which grew long and green.
Suddenly he reared up and snorted in a man
ner that very plainly said: "Look out."
I sprang to my feet, atrd it was quite well I
did so, for it saved me from the embrace of a
very large, very hungry and very ferocious
grizzly bear, who was standing erect ant pre
paring to throw his paws around me. I rushed
for the nearest tree and was up It in the wink
ing of an eye. I have often thought how kind
it was of Providence to put trees in the same
places that he does grizzly bears.
I was safe for the time being, but, alas, poor
Pete I The bear went about things in a very
cool and complacent manner. He must have
seen at the first glance that Pete was tethered
with a strong rope and could not escape and
climb a tree, as I had done. So he sat down on
the trunk of the fallen tree which I had just
left in such haste and began to study Pete.
Perhaps he was endeavoring to calculate the
precise amount of flesh on Pete's bones, and at
what point it would be best to begin his meal.
I could see by the expression of his eyes that
he was taking Pete's measure, fur he cooked
his head over on one side and assumed an ap
pearance of great wisdom, as you have seen
critics look at a picture. He also licked his
chops in evident anticipation of the repast in
which he was about to indulge.
Pete's behavior, much as I know of that re
markable animal, surprised me. When I was
safe the alarm that I had seen expressed in his
eyes disappeared altogether. He dropped his
head and began to nibble the grass again. He
went on with his grazing just as if there were
no such thing as a grizzly bear in the world.
He would nip off the succulent green stems
and chew with great steadiness and regularity,
and occasicnally I could hear his contented
snort as he struck an unusually delicate bunch
of grass.
The bear was as much astonished as I at
Pete's absorption in the business of eating and
indifference to danger. Evidently he consia
ered such conduct without a parallel, for he
looked harder than ever at Pete, then scratched
his head and tried to think out an answer to the
problem. But Pete calmly went on with his
grating and looked neither to the right nor to
the left, while I sat in my tree and stared.
By and by the bear arose from the tree. He
knew that he could not size up Pete's conduct
merely by sitting there. Then he made agrand
circuit around the tree in order to watch Pete
from every angle and point. Getting no satis
faction out of that mode of procedure, he
came over to my tree and looked up at me for
an answer. But I had none to give him, for I
was na much puzzled as the bcar was. Between
the bear and me we began to think that Pete
had lost his mind. Perhaps fright at the ap
pearance of the bear had so bereft him of rea
son that he continued to eat grass through the
mere force of habit.
Soon the grizzly got tired of the endeavor to
decipher the mysteries of a mule's behavior.
Appetite was getting the better of curiosity
and he prepared for work. He went back to
the log ngainst which he had first leaned and
made a critical examination of his destroying
apparatus. He stretched his front paws and
saed the muscles of each with the other.
Evidently he was satisied that he was in good
trim, for he opened his mouth and ran his paw
along the edge of his teeth to see that they were
slarp. Each claw was inspected in detail and
when all was over his bearship appeared to be
thoroughly satisfied that he was us to demolish
a whole drove of mules, if the opportunity
These things done the bear gave the signal
for action. le opened his muouth and emitted
a serious of growls which made my deash creep
and my hair rise up under my hat.
But Pete, as before, went along with his,
grazing. His countenance expresed no proof
that he had heard the growling of the grizly.
The latter dropped on all fours,with his hungry
mouth open and his great teeth disclosed.
Still Pete made no sign that he either saw or
heard, but confined his attention strictly to the
business of finding dinner. The bear, also
having the latter end In view, rapidly ap
proached until he was in striking distance
and then rearing up prepared to disembowel
Pete and break his neck with one blow.
Down came the outstretched paws. and at
that moment Pete seemed to become aware for
the first time of the presence of te grizzly.
He sprang forward, the paws struck only the
air, and then I saw a gray form double itaelf In
a ball and bound upward. Out of that ball
flew two legs, which shot back and forth with
the rapidity and force of piston rods, going
thump, thump upon the body of the grizzly.
Up and down went the body, and back and
forth went the two pile drivers. The bear oas.
struck all over, on his head, on his shoulders,
on his side, on his paws. Hie fell in one direc
tion and then in another. He was kicked into
the air and pounded into the earth. The
breath was driven out of him and life followed,
and at length he lay upon the ground a shape.
less mass, every bone in his body broken, while
Pete had quietly returned to his Interrupted
grazing, without a hair Injured.

then, by one of those happy flashes that some
times lights up the,brain Of the man whoseldom
Pays anything- clever, hl replied, "I hope so,
for it is all the exercise we get '
DoN'T SNOw WEAT REAL ExZnc is18.
Poor old chapple. He bends over that desk
all day, he dresses himself up and lounges all
the afternoon and he dances all the evening.
The brisk walk in the country the exhilarating
swinging on the horizontal bar, the manly
bowling of the heavy wooden ball, all these are
amusements which he does not know, but an
overheated atmosphere, an orchestra to play
the music and a partner to keep him company
in the waltz or polka-this is the way the chap
pie takes his exercise.
Yet dancing must be good exercise, it stands
to reason, for it brings nearly all the muscles
into play and ought also to be good for the
ings. The only objection is that is is indulged
in at a late hour, when sleep would be the best
thing for one, and in a room where the atmos
phere is not usually good. There Is, too, con
stant danger of cold*, for the dancer gets
heated and seeks relief in a draft and in the
drinking of cold water or iced punch.
The ways of the society man and woman are
strange. Like burglars, when most peole go to
bed they start out into the streets ie owls,
they Plume their feathers in the (ay time so
that they may look sleek and unruMed by
night: like "coons" and "possump," they feast
and enjoy themselves when other people are
wrapt in deep slumber. The African lion
roams about the plain and jungle from dark
until dawn, and the society Lion disports him
self in parlors and ball rooms from 9, 10 or 11
o'clock until midnight, 1, 2, 3 or 4 o'clock in
the morning. It is a strange life indeed, and
it has strange effects upon the people who fol
low it.
"What'sthe maaculineofadebuntsnte?" This
was the question that one of the ehappies just
described asked his companion after he had.
received a satisfactory reply to his inquiry
about dancing being a good exercise.
"A darned fool!" repiled the other instantly.
"What !" said chapple No. 1, -you don't eall
a lebutante a darned fool, do you?"
"No, of course not," said chapple No. 2. "but
a he debutante-a fellow who comes out into
society regularly at a certain age, as girls do.
is an ass, whom 'twere courtesy to term a
darned fool." All of wJich tends to show that
chappie No. 2 was not such a nonentity as he
appeared to be.
A debutante Is properly a person without any
corresponding creation in the masculine sex,
for a man becomes a society man gradually,
white a girl "comes out" at one fell swoop,
bursting her shell of girlhood and appearing
with futtering wings as the equal of other
young women who have been fying about in
society for some years. She gets as much at
tention, generally, the first year as she ever
gets afterward-sometimes more, and what a
remarkable thing it is, that. having been a little
girl up to the very moment before she "came
out" and besme a womanshe nearly always be
haves herseltwell and carries her sudden honors
gracefully and without embarasment. If the
young brain gets a little flurried sometimes,
and the young head is carried a little too high
in the air, it is no more than as to be expected.
Imagine an ordinary subject in a monarchy
suddenly placed upon the throne. imagine 'a
tussian peasant suddenly made czar, and you
have some idea of the sudden and high eleva
tion which a young girl who is beautiful at
tains after she has made her debut.
But with the man it is entirely diferent.
When he arrives at an age whet he may prop
erly go to the balls and parties of grown-up
people he begins to be asked to them. He as
very bashful and self-conscious. He makes
blunders all the time. His embarrassment is
often so great that he sometimes doesn't go to a
pty where he would like really to go. He
has a hard time generally. When he is at a
party he receives little attention. The girls
prefer older men. It takes a year or two be
fore he gets into the full swing of society and
before he enjoys it. No tea or german Is given
him when ha'comes out," he hiss no managing
mamma to maneuver so that he shall receive
all the attention possible, he Is east upon his
own resouroee and must makeehis own way.
After a time he may develop into a howling
swell and then the pror petting that he gt
speedily turns his had, for It can hadybe
questioned by anybody who has obeerved care
fully that the masculine society head ts lighter
than the feminine societ head-that the howl
ing swell is more eoneetdthan the belle-that
he has less brains and more affectations. He
is very ap to become mercenary, to drop his
old fredto become thoroughly unpopular
and not to care if he Is so,

with her energetic pull and now found hereslf
standing with the greater portion in her head.
Nothing was left to do but to knock ti her

With this Sally vanished. Miss Prim ganed
The parlor was furnished with great testo
and elegance, but, alas, it looked as though
a cyclone had swept through it. A a of.
apples stood on the piano with a 'he
apron thrown down beside them and a
paring knife on the Boor. It seems illy,

preferred to sit in the "drawin' room,
where she could see her beau, Tom, the de
livery boy, as he drove past. A broom lay
in idle luxury on a plush couch, with its
head on a gold-embruidered oAshien. Before
Miss Prim's shocked eyes had time to ob
serve more Sally returned and ushered her
up the stairs with: "Missis will be pleased
to have you step up to her room." Mhe as
cended, but the way was fraught with danger
as several of the stair rods were half of and
seemed demoniacally beat on tripping her.
The delicately frocoed walls were further en
hanced with sketches done with burnt oork.
Mrs. Slouch's room was in fine disorder; Nh
toilet table was heaped with faded Bowers, fans.
gloves, perfumes and powder; the combs ad
brushes had overflowed and lay with a pair of
slippers upon the door. A dainty tissue ball
costume lay In the corner, where Mrs. Slouch
had stepped out of it the night before, and the
chairs were littered with hats, parasols, dsh,
gowns and books in a onfused jumble.
Mrs. Slouch herself lay on a lounge among
a dozen or more Auffy silk pillows. Wen Miss
Prim entered she threw down her novel and
exclaimed: "I'm so glad to see you, Miss Prim:
I'm half bored to death, nothing to do b'ut read,
read, read; I danced so much lmat night it gave
me a spell with my heart, so I don't dare move
today. "I m sorry, im sure" murmured
Miss Prim, sniffing, as she sought in vaia for a
place to sit down.
"Just knock thoe things onto the foor,"
cried Mrs. Slouch easily, "and stay awhe.l"
"I musin't staylong. I only-" began Miss
Prim, when she was interrupted bf a tap on the
door, and enter Jane, the colored maid.
"Please, Miss' Leah, Marser Jack's deas

No sooner had Jane toahed te handle o
the closet than the door eprang open, as i b
magic, and out rolled a medley of apareL

white cashmere morning gown; a pair of rab
her boots fell out with a ball dress. u
"There, Jane." said Mrs. Slouch, "Jst see
how careless you are; look in deeper and yen'l

Mrs. Slouch was convulsed with laughter and,
