THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN: THURSDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 22, Ifc94.
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
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.
The Profuse Ceremonials Observed When
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
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.
