THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN: THURSDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 22, Ifc94.
3 A LION ON THE LOCOMOTIVE. He Was Only a Mountain Lion. But No body Disturbed Him. Last winter 'when the snowstorms "were so fearful throughout the moun tains in Utah and the earth was cov ered with snow to the depth of five to ten feet and remained hidden so long the wild animals were forced to desper ation. The wolves, sa3Ts the Detroit Free Press, were starved and weak, and what is known as the mountain lion almost perished from starvation. Its great strength failed it and a man with a knife could soon take the life of an animal that a short time before could hold a powerful ox or horse and make a meal of his flesh. The hungry animals after awhile dis covered that food was to be had along the railroad track, where passengers threw bones and scraps of victuals from passing trains. Often two starv ing coyotes would engage in deadly combat over a chicken bone that had a short time before been ridden of its last vestige of nourishment by some economical person who did not care to pay seventy-five cents for a meal. This was the condition of things. Engineer Gast had charge of engine No. 151, which was known as "the helper," from the fact that it helped trains up the mountain and when at the summit cut ofE and dropped back down to the bottom ready to help an other. One night when business on the road was slack Gast noticed some thing wrong with the gearing under the tender and remarked to the fire man that they would get oS and repair it. . When half way down the moun tain side he brought the engine to a standstill, and the two men went to work at what proved to be a twenty minutes' job packing a hot box on the tender. The tallow pot was left at the boiler's head. After completing the repairs the men were mounting the engine again, only to see a huge mountain lion devouring the tallow and holding full possession of the engine cab. It was a cold night and the snow drifting. The men had already remained outside until they were very cold, and the chances of dis possessing Mr. Lion were very meager, as he snapped his teeth and flashed his eyes and fast stored the tallow out of sight. The only consolation the men had was that the tallow would not last long at that rate, and even this thought was not entirely satisfying, as they had no way of determining that one of them would not go the same way at the conclusion of the tallow feast. Finally, after fifteen minutes' further delay, the tallow pot was empty, and giving a growl, as much as to say: "I am very thankful, gentle men, and you ought to be," the animal leaped from the cab and disappeared in the hills. SAMOAN FUNERALS. The Profuse Ceremonials Observed When Death Occurs. In Samoa it is impossible for a chief to die in peace and quiet. As soon as he is known to be near death, the people for miles around hasten to pay him a farewell visit. On one such occasion, according to a writer in Outing, the visitors, all of whom had to be enter tained, devoured seven hundred pigs. When death finally occurs, the rela tives and friends come with their offer ings of fine mats. Singly, or in small groups, they present the tokens of their sorrow to some old woman, deputed to receive them. The mats are spread over the corpse, until in some in stances a hundred or more are piled up, entirely hiding the body from sight. They excite more attention than the dead chief, and after the burial are hung up for inspection. Every mat has a name and history, and though the outsider could not easily distinguish one from another, yet the elderly people recognize them at first sight, and relate bits of history about each, as it is exposed to view. After the funeral is over, within a day or two, there is grand meeting for a division of the mats. Every one who brought a mat expects to take away one a better one. All hands are seated in a circle, and the mats are piled up in the center. The head of the family, who is al ways a high chief, opens a folded mat. All look at it carefully, discuss its mer its and value, mention its various own ers at different times and the great oc casions at which it has figured, and the name of the donor on the present oc casion. Then the head of the family calls the name of some person who is in the circle, to intimate that the mat is given to him, or her, as the case may be. The recipient takes the mat, lifts it, and presses it to the top of the head, at the same time expressing audible thanks. The entire heap of mats is parcelled out in the same manner One ol England's Oldest Trees. One of the oldest trees standing in tnglana is the lort worth ' chestnut, which, as far back as the reign of Stephen, in 1135, was so remarkable for its size and antiquity that it was recog nized as the terminal boundary of the manor of Tortworth m Gloucestershire. The wondrously old tree was cited by Dr. Ducard in his controversy with Daines ISarrington as a convincing proof of the chestnut being indigenous to Great Britain. It is supposed to have attained its maturity in the reign of Egbert. In 17G6 the Tortworth chest nut was fifty feet in circumference and fifty-two feet high, and many more centuries of tranquil existence were predicted for it. RESTAURANT. Delmonico Dining Hall.
