A WICKED ENCOUNTER BETWEEN A MAN AND A BEAR. ft Ended In n Cltnclt and a Roll Down n Snoiv Covered Mountain Side?A Clone Call. In Whieli tlie 3I:in JilKt I'.xealied AV'itii Ills Life. To roll down u snow covered moun tain side tightly clasped in the embrace of a grizzly bear is nn experience few men pats through and live to tell. Bnt that is what happened to Frank Lecky of Fresno, and when it was all over he had only a few scratches and bruises and a big bearskin to show as signs of his terrible enconnter. "It was the wickedest fight I ever got into," said Frank when telling of his experiences, "and I have been in n good many, going out limiting in tho Sierras every winter, as I do. "This big fight happened up in the Whitney country. It was jnst n few miles east of tho Minarets and in the Epot where a follow is always pretty sure to find big game. "It was pretty late in the afternoon, and I was all alone in camp, as tho other boys had not returned from a deer hnnt they started on in the morning. "I had been dozing in the tent all day, bnt came out to have a look at the sky. As I glanced along the top of a bluff a few hundred feet from the camp I saw something dark moving about. "That was enongh for me. I got my riflo and started right after it. The kind of game I was going after didn't con cern me at all. bnt I really didn't ex pect bear, at least such big cantanker ous bear. "Taking a roundabout way through tho snow, I soon reached the top of the bluff and began to crawl along care fully in order to get a good resting shot and not corno upon my game too sud denly. "Finally I caught a close view of a big dark body moving behind a clump of bushes. It was so large that for a moment I thought I had been stalking a cow and was ready to kick myself. Then a long drawn miff and a deep growl told me it was bear I was sight ing. Instantly I was ail excited with interest and strained every nerve to get the beast in line and so plant a bullet in the right spot. The bear, however had a mind to keep his eyes on me and kept moving about as he peered between the branches of tho brush. "Suddenly one of the horses down in the camp neighed loudly and attracted tho bear's attention. As the bear turn ed and exposed his aide I tired. Down went the bear like a bag of wheut, and I thought my rifle ball must have gone clean through its brain. Without stop ping to consider whether my shot had really been fatal. I rushed forward. As I stooped down to see where the ball struck, tl;e bear jumped up, and then I knew I had only 'creased' it?that is, just grazed its head or spinal cord and knocked it senseless for a moment. "Before I could swing my rifle for ward to get in a shot the bear had knocked it out of my hands and was right on top of ine. Somehow I man aged to draw my knife and get in a few jabs that did 110 daiuage. The bear hugged me tighter and tighter, and 1 kicked harder and harder and jabbed wildly with my knife. Then we both rolled 011 the ground, and the bear tried to bite my face, but I kept off his fast clawing blows by hugging tightly against him. I jabbed and jabbed as we rolled over and over, and the bear's face and claws were pretty badly cnt and one of his eves was put out of ser vice. The snow all around was torn up and spattered with blcod. "Before I knew it we were just on the edge of the blnff. and an almost vertical wall of snow lay just below us for over a hundred feet to the bottom. "This frightened ine more than the bear, fur I knew what it meant, bnt be fore I could think of doing anything we were over the edge and rolling down at lightning speed. "It could not have taken more than a few seconds, bnt it seemed to me like years. Now I was on top the bear, and now underneath. Snow filled my eyes and ears, and I was scratched and wounded and bumped until I thought 1U3' end had come. "It seems to 1110 that I kept striking at the bear as we rolled, or rather shot, downward, for we wore going at the speed of a cannon ball. Then there was a sudden bump while I was on top, and the bear gave a moan of pain and let go of me "That gave me my chance, and I drove my knife into his heart. "The skin measured over seven feet. I found out while we were cutting him up that when he struck the rock at the bottom of the hill he shattered hia spine It was just a piece of luck that the bear struck the rock and not my self."?San Francisco Call.

Brotherhood of St. Andrew. Mr! A. G. Wynkoop, who represented the Brotherhood of St. Andrew of Zion Episcopal Church of this place at the re cent Tri-Diocesan Convention at Char lottesville, Va., reports a most enjoyable and interesting meeting, and has favored us with papers giving the detailed pro ceedings, from which we append the re sponse of our former townsman Dr. Chas. E. Pratt, now of Wheeling, in behalf ot West Virginia, as follows: 4* One could not well have listened to the eloquent words of clergy and laity with out having his heart melted by emotion and thankfulness, and feeling that it is well for us to be here. I know that I voice the sentiment of the Brotherhood of West Virginia when I say it is a priv ilege to meet with the representatives of our younger sister, the Diocese of South ern Virginia, and Virginia, our common mother, and endeavor to further the spread of Christ's kingdom among men. I would fail it I did not express my appreciation personally to you, for in Christ church?the old church that stood where this one now stands?I learned my first catechism, and listened to the words of love from Bishop Meade and Bishop olins. Yonder at the University of "irginia I was reared from childhood to manhood years, and from out of its classic halls I went forth to battle with the world twenty-five years ago. M y heart fills with emotion when I meet with those 1 met here in childhood days. Pray for the spread of Christ's kingdom among men. I pledge our hearty support in tins con vention and pray that we may make this a memorable occasion, and may it be the forerunner of but many more that shall follow for the glorv and good of the Brotherhood in the Virginia Dioceses. - 1 pray God that he may give to us a three-fold measure of his Divine Spirit that we may be enabled to do what pleases him most, to live more consecrated lives and to give th??m for the holy work of God and his Christ."
