Saved Herself from Death and Kills
Frenzied Beast.
I MIDLANDS. S. DAK.. Jan. 20.?
Miss Maudo Derroe, a young woman
living on tho prairie west of here
threw herself upon the bnck of an
enraged bull yesterday, and rode the
beast until lie became exhausted and
The bull made n vicious attack up
on Miss Drrroe when she was walk?
ing sicross the prairie alone and un
arm ?d. The young woman, unable to
make her escape, stood her ground
and offered the enraged beast battle.
After a brief and desperate struggle
by which she was cruelly punished
and well nigh killed. Miss Derroe, by
an almost superhuman effort, threw
herself upon the hack of the hull.
The beast, tried hard to throw her.
but she was reared on tho pralrio and
had ridden wild horses from the time
nho wos n child, and she made shift
to keep her seat.
? Finding' that, she could r.ot be un?
seated, tho maddeucd beast started
to run nt tho ton of his speed, and
I bo ran until he finally fell to the
! ground with blood streaming from
i his mouth and noso and utterly ox
I haunted. The bull died soon after
I ward. The girl was uninjured by her j
? wild ride, but was painfully hurt be- j
fore slut got astride the bull's hack.
Tin- Wny Hunter* Cnpture tUo OrnnR
OutniiKT Alive.
Trapping the smaller members of the
monkey fondly Is a comparatively easy
matter, but the hunter who wishes to
secure live Specimens of tho orang
outnhg cannot have recourse to the
usual methods nnd has to employ a
laborious process. The process is based
upon the fact that the orangs have a
liking for certain trees nnd frequent
these to the exclusion of other nearby
growths. They seem to regard them
as a sanctuary and tloe to them in time
of danger. Ascertaining a tree partic?
ularly favored, the hunter (lrst d^Lvus
his quarry to its branches; then mllle
Iiis beaters keep up a din for the pur?
pose of preventing an attempt at es?
cape the natives are set to work to
chop lit the trees within n radius of
Qfty feet nil about the simian fortress.
No trunk is cut completely through,
but is left With Just enough fiber to
hold the tree in position. This work Is
quickly accomplished with the large
corps of servants, and nt n signal one
of the trees la toppled over. The chop?
ping has been so done that the fullinc
tree carries with It Its neighbor, and In
the twinkling of an eye the' trees with?
in n radius of fifty feet from tUo mark?
ed tree He upon the ground, leaving
the orang outaugs with no opportunity
for getting away through their leafy
avenues of escape. The remainder of
the process simply consists of chopping
down tho tree of refuge nnd throwing
nets over the escaping orangs, in which
thev soon become entangled In their
efforts to throw off the Ineumbrance.
Subtract -l.~ Front lr, mid Hove -in tin
ii llciitniiulcr.
If you were asked to subtract 4.?
from 40 and have 4." as n remainder,
you would be likely to say that the
proposition is either a "catch" or nn
impossibility. 15uf here it is, set down
In plain figures, and you will find that
It is neither one nor the other:
8 6 4 1 9 7 6 3 3
Here, you see, ore the nine digits
from 0 to 1 written down in that or?
der, and below them are the snuie
digits from left to right, and you will
see that each line makes 4~>, and you
will find that the remainder?the third
lino?adds up 45.
Another little exercise Is to set down
the following fifteen figures nnd tlion
see If you can use six of them In such
n way us to make u total of 21:
3 3 3
0 6 6
7 7 7
9 9 S
One wny of doing it Is to take the
two 7's. one J> and one 1, which make
four figures, footing up 20, and then to
use two other figures as a fraction to
represent one. For example. 7 plus 7
plus 5 plus l plus 3-3 equals 21.?Bnlti

Frlendnhlp With Wild Life.
If a fairy had ever offered to grant I
me three wishes, "the full confidence
of wild animals" would surely have
been one of them und probably the
first. If we seek opportunities to be?
friend wild creatures and tnke advan?
tage of them, we shull often find, as I
have done, that there Is no lack of re?
sponse on the part of the animals. I
once walked up tu a pine siskin, as he
was feeding on the ground and picked
him up in my hand. He did not seem
a bit nlnrmed, and when a few min?
utes Inter I set him down he continued
his search for food within a few Inches
of my feet. On another occnslon a yel?
low throated vlreo allowed me to lift
her from her uest when I wished to
count her eggs nnd nestled down com?
fortably on her treasures the moment I
put her back. With a forefinger I once
stroked the back of a red breasted nut?
hatch ns lie was busy feeding on a
