THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN: SATURDAY MORNING, MARCH 16, 1895.
FOUGHT UNDER WATER.
A Mink Drowned While Killing a Mask,
rat In an Adirondack Pool.
The muddled water of a half-frozen
cove down cn the flats told that some
thing unusual had happened not long
before. Plainer yet was the tale when
a stiffening furred body rose to the sur
face of the little open space of water.
Under the fringe of nearly frozen ice
a dark spot showed plainly to a wood
man's eye that a fight had occurred in
the water, and a .closer inspection
demonstrated that it had been a fight
for food and a fight for life.
A hungry mink had come that way
along a string of coves looking for
something to eat. The mice were shy,
and he could not catch them. Of fish
there were none, but a lone muskrat,
diving for roots and after a minute be
neath the water's surface rising again,
offered a prey at once a fighter and of
goodly taste. A mink likes to kill a
fighter. HS will go a long way from
brooks, upon hill and even mountain
tops, looking for one, woodsmen say.
He tackles martens or weasels, and is
especially fond of a big muskrat.
The mink crouched on the edge of
the ice a moment; then, as the muskrat
rose, he sprang for his prey. The musk
rat quickly threw up his head and
caught the mink by a paw. The mink
got hold of the muskrat's neck, a skin
hold only. They rolled and kicked the
water high in the air, throwing it ten
feet away into the snow. The mink
could have killed the muskrat had they
been in the snow or on the ground, but
in the water the muskrat was too pow
erful. At last they dived, and above
them the water boiled and grew yellow
Under water the mink was as badly
off as at the surface. At last the
mink's breath gave out, and, letting go,
he tried to rise, but the muskrat would
not release his hold on the mink's leg.
So at last the mink, after much strug
gling, died. But his hold on the musk
rat's throat, though at first only a skin
hold, had later been forced back, and
the big vein had been cut. The mink
rose to the surface, and the muskrat
tried to swim away, but died, and rose
as the other had done.
THE SEVEN STARS.
A Htrange Superstition of the Ancient
' In ancient Egypt the body of Osiris
was always sealed up in the ark dur
ing the month of November, because
the people believed that the seven stars
were seven brothers sailing their ships
across the sky and carrying with them
the souls of the dead. The people of
ancient Gaul believed that the angels
and the souls of great men held a
celestial festival on that particular
night in November, when both the full
moon and the seven stars were on the
meridian at the same hour. The Hot
tentots of South Africa and the Abi
pones of South America each claim that
the seven stars are their deceased fa
thers and grandfathers. Oakes says:
"Certain tribes in both Africa and
South America hold that the seven
stars is (are) their father (fathers), and
welcome their return with festivities
and much rejoicing." The ancient
Mexicans always sacrificed a human
being and kindled a sacred fire (made
of seven firebrands) on his back when
the seven stars and the moon were on
a certain meridian together. The Pe
ruvians also had seven stars cere
monies, but without sacrifice, at about
the time the Mexicans were carrying
on their paganistic rites. The ancient
Druids believed the seven stars to be
boats, which carried souls to the judg
ment seat of the "god of the dead."
A Thief's Clever Base.
' A man, wearing a large cape coat en
tered a London store when the proprie
tor was alone, and asked to be shown
some ladies' cloaks, as he wished to give
his wife a little surprise. After a care
ful inspection, he fixed upon one, and
asked the shopkeeper if he had a young
lady at hand, to put on the cloak to see
how it looked. The proprietor re
gretted that none of the ladies of the
establishment were in at that moment.
"Well," said the man, "perhaps you
wouldn't object to putting it on your
self?" The unsuspecting shopkeeper
slipped on the cloak, buttoned it, and
tured round in all directions. "Mag
nificent!" exclaimed the purchaser,
with seeming ecstasy. But at the same
time he grabbed the till, which he hid
Tinder his cape, and bolted out of the
store. The horrified proprietor rushed
after him into the street, where, how
ever, he was seized by the passers-by,
who dragged him back into his store in
the supposition that the poor fellow
had gone mad, and before he could ex
plain matters the rogue had disap
peared. What Querns Are.
The quern is among the oldest and
most primitive of mechanisms for the
grinding of grain. There is a fixed
stone and above it a rotating one.
There is a hole in the middle of the
upper, or movable stone, into which the
grain is dropped. A stick fixed into
the upper stone permits of it being
moved around. A wooden spindle runs
through both stones. It is a good ma
chine, but useless to-day. Iseverthe
less. the quern, with but very little va
riations, precisely as it was used in pre
historic times, is made and sold and
grinds its grain to-day in the Orkney
anil Uebridian islands. What a patent
flour-making mill of the present day
would cost we do not know, but a few
years ago a good quern could be made
in Shetland for about one dollar.
