Nobles, who when he was In the hotel business on Broadway a few years ago claimed to have found a cure for hay fever by shutting up a sneezing guest In a refrigerator and who thus acquired the nlcknamo of "Doc" got back yesterday from a hunt ing trip In M&lno and brought a "bag" of stories about the celebrities In the vicinity of Ox Bow. In the first place George Flem mlng's dog Whisper, famous as the only dog in Maine that had been trained to point fish, Is dead. His place In Mr. Flcmmlng's affections Is now filled by Violet, a trained skunk. Mr. Nobles on his first hunt this aut umn bagged a deer with an automo bile. That was before the hunting reason opened. "Fleming is an ordinary hand at training animals," said Mr. Nobles, who Is now an exporter, "and Whis per was the wonder of that part of tho state. Violet, howovor, has made an impression on the countryside com pared with which tho memory of the achievements of Whisper Is faint. "The skunk has actually been trail ed to tree birds. And, mind you, Vio let does not use the overpowering means that most skunks might apply in doing anything. For sbo is an In offensive skunk. You can be in her company and not know It.

This automobile, I may assure you, lest you have a disposition to doubt the existence and the capabilities of Violet, is not trained. It is Just an ordinary car, and Fleming and I, one night before the hunting season was on, were driving up from Masardis. All of a sudden something streaked in front of our headlights and struck on our windshield. We saw at once it was a deer. It was so much injured that we killed it to put it out of Its misery. "Next arose a quandra. Was it il legal to eat deer killed by this means out of season? Although I was near ly famished for lack of fresh mear, having been living off salt bacon for four or five days, I agreed with Mr. Fleming that on this delicate point appeal should be made to the game warden of the county. His reply, af ter due deliberation, was that it was not illegal and that was about tho best venison I ever tasted." ? (Now York Times.)
