In his happy and hopeful early jeais, ays the San Francisco Call, he had oc cupied his h.iurs of lecreation by study ing into the mysteries and possibilities or the electric fluid and had conducted in his own laboratory a series of somewhat extensive experiments, which gavehim a clear idea as to the practical application of this irresistible yet njysteiious force. After fully deciding upon his method of procedure the hermit made a journey to Tucson, 100 miles distaut, to procure the articles necessary for the carrying out of his plan. He had hi ought with him into the wilderness among his other po essions the battery ubich had so amused and interested him in other days, therefore he needed only wire and pow der to put his designs Into execution. These articles, after a loug and danger ous trip, during which he was obliged to travel nights and secrete himself and his burros during the daytime, he secured and brought back to his cabin and at once upon his arrival home began his work of preparation for the wholesale tragedy he had planned. With infinite toil he dug a pit, eight feet deep and four feet wide, straight across the narrow pa'-s which gave entrance to his home. Four kegs of powder contain ing 50 pounds each 'were then placed at equal distances apart in the bottom of this pit, a bole having first been made in the top of each and wires fitted therein and carefully secured. These kegs Kea vis covered with n layer of earth tightly packed around them and then filled the long hole solidly with more earth and a quantity of broken rock. Dry leaves and small stones and sticks were scattered over the surface to conceal evidences of a disturbance of the ground, and then connecting wires, insulated by broken bottles, were stretched along the line of mountain ash trees that bordered the stream to the battery concealed in the hermit's cabin. Everything was now complete, and Heavis was eager for the advent of his untiring enemy. He had not long to wait, for on the third night after he had fin ished his preparations for their reception, as the moon was slowly sinking behind old Superstition, his dog's low growl awoke him from his light blumber. Silencing his trusty friend by a low voiced word and a reassuring touch of his hand, Reavis peered out into the night and saw a dark figure steal from the shadow of the bluff outside his inclosure into the shadow of a clump of trees just beyond his pit. Another and another fol lowed, until 20 were gathered there to gether, .and as the silent watcher, scarce ly drawing breath, kept his eyes fastened upon them they moved toward his cabin in a body, carefully keeping concealed under the shadow of the foliage above them. Just where the pit stretched its hidden length from side to side of the narrow way the line of trees led some distance to the right of the cabin instead of directly toward it. And here, as Kes ris had cunningly anticipated, the war riors paused for consultation. In an instant a strange, low rumbling smote on their horrified ears, the dark and silent cabin burt into a bunding KFEBXAL VOLCANIC ERUPTIOX. glow of brilliant illumination, in the midst of which their intended victim's figure, black against the dazzling bright ness, stood out in bold relief. At the same moment and befoie they could even turn to flee from the terrors that encompassed them, the very earth beneath their feet trembled and rocked and rose up into space. It was an infer nal volcanic eruption of which they were the center, in which shattered and shred ded and seared human flesh and bones took the place of bioken and melted stones. Mountain and canyon echoed and le-echoed the thunderous reverberations of the awful explosion, and miles away the tremendous concussion loosened mighty bowlders from their centuries old resting places and sent them crashing downward through the affrighted dark ness, adding the rushing, grinding roar of their devaslating progress to the accumu lated horrors of that night of carnage. When Heavis, gun and knife-in baud, ap proached the scene of death, one Indian and one oily disengaged himself from the confusion of horror which surrounded him, and darted out of the pass and around the point of the bluff to carry to his brethri-u the dreadful tale which won for Ileavii ever after the superstitious reverence cf his Apache foes. For 41 kng years he lived secure and unmolested in his mountain home, and even the bravest warriors have fled at his approach uv if he were the death angel in human form. -. -$- $--$ Wwmmf 4--?"-i---,i I T i J How the Hermit of "Superstition ft Mountains" Slaughtered His Apacho ,'i mm xcrrurucu iuo uav uu iv . ? $ GULCH OR GRIZZLY. A. Corrbor'a Horse Makes a. 'Clear Leap of Twenty-one Feet. "What is the greatest distance you ever knew a hotse to jump with a rider upon its back? Xot a trained steeplechaser and hurdle jumper, ridden by a jockey trained down to the lightest possible LKAP FOR LIFE. weight, but a plain, common, everyday horse, ridden by a cowboy in the usual paraphernalia of his kind, with heavy stock saddle and under all the disadvan tages of a rough mountain trail. Tou may have heaid of some pietty stiff jumps, says a correspondent of the San Francisco Examiner, but this is the story of a clean leap of 21 feet from bank to bank of a rugged gulch, to fall into which meant death for both hor.-e and rider, the horse being a common half breed and its rider being a cowboy named George Kingv The impelling motive, it may be remarked at the outset, was an angry grizzly, and it was a case of being mangled by him or going to the bottom of a deep and rocky crevasse in the moun tain side. The horse did not wait to be turned by its rider, but like a flash it wheeled and started down the rongb and stouy trail at full speed. Its rider had no control over the animal, nor did he attempt to ex ercise any. He knew that there was just one thing to do, and that was to get j away as rapidly as possible. So, plying needed, the little horse flew down the trail under the brush. But a down hill chase is a chase in which a grizzly is at his best, and the beast was soon close at the heels cif the horse. "What shall I do when we reach the gulch?" thought George to hinibelf. "We can never make the turn at this speed, and if I slacken up it will be all day with me." It did not take long to make up Jiis mind. The trail ran close to the edge of the gulch and turned almost at right angles, so that there was absolutely no room for making a curve without going over the bank. "We'll have to try to jump it, old girl," said he to his plucky little horse as they ueared the gulch. Apparently the ani mal thought so as well and was prepared for what came next. Just as the gulch was neared George gave a jab with his spurs into the flanks of the frightened animal, raised his bridle reins and then the little beast gathered her legs beneath her and went sailing through the air, lauding on the edge of the opposite bank, which was slightly lower than the bear's side of the crevasse. The bear could not follow, and, after emitting a savage roar or two at its es caped prey, turned and went back. The next day we went up to the scene of the jump and by actual measurement found that the horse had cleared 21 feet in its flight through the air! Origin of the Fan. The use oi the fan originated in Calna and sprang from the following incident: A royal princess, very beautiful, was as sisting at the feast of lanterns, her face covered with a mask, as usual. The ex cessive heat compelled her to remove it, and in order to guard her features from the common gaze she moved it quickly to and fro In front of her face, thns simul taneously hiding her charms and coo'ing her brow. The idea was at once adopted throughout the kingdom. "Catherine de Medici carried the first fan from Italy ever seen iu France, and in the time of Louis 'XIV the fan, cover ed with jewels, was worth a small for tune. TURTLE AS WATCHDOG. Huge Creature Token I'osxeasion at a. Garden In Honolulu. Stray turtles measuring four or five feet in length do not often wander un molested through the streets of a thickly populated city. But not long since a well know? family in Honolulu received a visitor of this kind, says the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. Xobody knows where the great beast came from. He simply appeared one day at the garden gate, and, forcing an entrance, proceeded to make himself at home on the premises. He was promptly expelled by the as tonished family, to wander once more on the city streets, for they did not know what else to do with him. The turtle had different ideas, however. He had found a comfortable home and meant to stay in it. He had very likely led a life of hardship and intended to end bis days in peace and security, so he returned, but was again turned out upon the cruel world. The turtle bad a will of his own and was determined to live in that par ticular spot, so he crawled In again the next time the gate Was open. The fami ly gave up in despair and allowed the uninvited guest to remain a few days be fore they turned him out again. But ha returned once more. This performance was tepeated a number of times. If the; shut the gate on him, he would rear up on his hind legs and put his for fet on the top like a great dog. It was necessary to accept the inevita ble. The peopleto whom he 'wished t attach himself Iieg.in t feel a certain superstition and allov cd him to take pos session of the garden which be had sc long coveted as his abode There hr crawls about in the daytime and sleeps at night and is given his three good meals a day of bran and water and scraps from the table. He is a perfectly harmless old fellow, and the children have great sport with him. two cr three at a time riding on his back. It is only dangerous t place a. hand on the side of his neck, for, as he contracts his neck quickly within his shell, it is likely to be drawn in and injured. But bis fun niest characteristic developed after he had been fairly accepted into the family circle. In return for the kindness lav ished upon him he took upon himself the functions of a watchdog. The poor ticast is not able to bark, but when a stranger enters the gate he gives forth such loud and formidable hisses as tc frighten the most courageous until they di-cover that his hiss is worse than his bite. It is estimated that this great turtle is very old. While not of a rare species, he has grown to an unusual size. His neck is beginning to shrivel and take upon it self the drawn look of extreme age. It is thought by some thnt he is the famous turtle that belonged to Kamehameha I, who was the greatest tonqueror and king of the Hawaiian Islands and lived over 100 years ago. The animal remained for generations in the custody of the royal f.nni'v arid last belonged to the queen dowager, Kaprolnni, who died on June 24. Some time before the qneen's death the turtle disappeared. But, whether this queer old beast, with its almost hu man intelligence, has such a romantic history or not. It is today one of the most Interesting sights of Honolulu, though few visitors know of its existence. FORT ON WHEELS. A Formidable Battery and Jngicer nnnt Combined. A patriotic inventor has offered to the government a gigantic military automo bile big enough to ran right over the en emy's intrenchments and occupied by a force of boldiers sufficiently large to be termed'a garrison. The wheels of this huge automobile fortress are to be 50 feet In diameter, provided with pneumatic tires to enable it to run more easily over hostile earth works, and the body of the vehicle is clad in steel armor, impenetrable to rifle AUTOMOMI.K JORTHhsn. bullets or cinnori shot. Through suit able windows, or portholes, if they may be ?o termed, project rapid fire guns 1 pounders and ( pounders with perhaps a couple of Colt "automatics" to throw a continuous rain of smnll bullets. Mean while, through smaller openings, the sol diers are able to direit a destructive Sre upon the foe with ICtag-.Iorgensen rifles. Each of these military automobiles is provided with a sort of apparatus in front which somewhat resembles in shape the cowcatcher of a locomotive en gine. It is armed with bayonctlike knives and in nctiou it will serve to scoop up and cut to pieces an army of fighting men. On top of the perambulating for tress is an armored casemate, cylindrical in form, which provides a safe shelter for eight or ten riflemen. WHEELS A3JDTHELA W INFLUENCEOF THE AMERICAN LEAGUG UPON LEGISLATION. 8aocesfnl Methuds of Dealing TVltn Individual Statesmen LegislatorH Swamped In Sackful of Letters. Taxation vf B!ccle. (Special Correspondence PrrrsBURG, Oct. 23. The approach of the legislative season ia not without , interest to wheelmen, inasmuch as in nearly every state in the Union there will be a lumber of bills presented to the legislature, some in their behalf and others with a restrictive object Heretofore wheelmen havo been ex traordinarily successful in securing the passage of laws favoring them in their pastime and in defeating those which they have considered prejudicial to their interesta Few wheelmen, how ever, stop to consider how these laws are passed or the methods adopted by the League of American Wheelmen, the organization which alone has repre sented the millions of wheelmen in the legislative lobbies. As there will be eo many bills presented during the corn- TOESIDENT KR3WAN OF TITE I- A. W. jng winter, 3 few words on 'row tho league has accomplished to much vrifl be of interest. Generally speaking, the most successful method of the league has been to impress upon legislators the fact that its thousands of members and their many more friends are a political factor that must not be overlooked. Politicians have not been slow in real izing this, and in many casea are anx ious to show their friendship for wheel men. Of course, the bills presented have to be of merit, and the league has been careful to urge the passage of only such laws as are reasonable. With a good bill and the necessary political pressure, it is only a matter of time until the law is placed on the statute bocks. There are many cases, however, which require special methods. A nota ble instance was the passage of the bag gage law in New York. That is con ceded to be the league's greatest achievement. It had the railroad lobby, the strongest in any state, to contend with, and th9 fight that ensued was perhaps one of the hardest the New York legislature ever had. The special method adopted was to overwhelm the members of the legislature with per sonal letters urging them to support the bill. Every wheelman wbb requested to write his representatives, with the re sult that every man in the legislature received mail by the sackful. They could not throw the letters away on the supposition that they were all on the same subject. They had to open each one, and this soon became such a bur den that they had to throw the railroad lobbyists overboard and give in to the wheelmen. When the bill reached the governor, he was flooded with telegrams, and, though Chauncey M. Depew represented the railroad interests in urging him not to nign it, he could not resist the press ure placed upon him. There are other cases in which unusual means had to be used, but the strongest force the league has is in the influence and back ing of its members and wheelmen gen erally. If the organization had five times its present membership, there is not a legislature in the country that could resist its demands, and when the alliance, with the farmers is completed it will have a tremendous influence on our lawmakers. Bicycles are property, and the assess ors have an undoubted right to tax them under the law as it stands if they see fit. The L. A. W. and its officers endeavor to show the injustice of such a tax because a bicycle improves a road and cannot harm it So long as the fanner's narrow tired wagon is exempt from taxation there can be no good rea son for taxing the rubber tired vehicle. If only bicycles traveled the highways, we should have none but smooth roads. As a means of increasing the influ ence of the league, both locally and as a national body, the chairman of the rights and privileges committee of the New Jersey division, L. A. W., sug gests that the form of the organization be changed so as to place the unit of government within the local consulates. Under this system the local consulates would elect delegates to the state board of officers, and they in turn would elect the national officials. This is practical ly the same principle as adopted by many fraternal organizations, and it is believed would be advantageous to the league, in that it would create addi tional local interest in furthering the objects of the organization. Some lawyers have advanced the opinion that they do not think an ordi nance compelling bicycles to carry lamps is valid. They argue that it is class legislation, taking as their ground the fact that the supreme court has de clared the bicycle a vehicle and con tending that if one vehicle is compelled to carry a lamp all should be made to do the same.

It Covers a Ilnmli-ed Square Miles and Is a Mass of Glittering: Agate In a Bewildering Array of Gor fpeons Coloring. The territory of Arizona is a vast museum of natural curiosities, includ ing many of the most wonderful In all the world. The atmosphere, the cli mate, the mountains, the soil, the riv ers, the forests are tilled with phe nomena, many of which exist nowhere else. In the desert, 300 miles square, with Flagstaff us a e'enter, are spread out a variety of wonders of which the people of this country have little or no conception, but if they were In Eu rope or Asia, thousands of our citizens would cross the ocean to see them. Being within only two or three days' journey of Chicago and easy of access by frequent trains of sleeping and dining cars and other modern luxuries of travel, they are overlooked by the multitude and are practically un known. To my mind, next to the Grand can yon of the Colorado, the most Interest ing and impressive of the natural won ders of this great Arizona museum ia the petrified forest, which covers near ly 100 square miles, within easy dis tance, either on foot or hors,ebaek, from Billings station, on" the Snnta Fe railroad, but it can be more easily reached by carriage from Holbrook, where better accommodations can be found. The government explorers have christened It Chalcedony park. The surface of the ground for miles and miles around is covered with gi gantic logs three or four feet iu diam eter, petrified to the core. Marry of them are translucent Some are almost transparent. All present the most beau tiful shades of blue, yellow, pink, pur ple, red and gray. Some are like gi gantic amethysts, some resemble the smoky topaz and some are as puro and white as alabaster. At places the chips of agate from the trunks that have crumbled lie a foot deep upon the ground, and It is easy to obtain cross sections of trees showing every vein and even the bark. Comparatively little of this agate has been used in manufacturing, nlthough It is easy to obtain. Manufacturing Jewelers of New l'ork have made table tops and boxes and other articles from strips that have been sent them, and If the material were not so abundant its beauty would command enormous prices.

The geologists say this great plain, now 5.000 feet above the sea. was once covered by a forest, which was submerged for ages in water strongly charged with minerals, until the fibers of the trees were thoroughly soaked and transformed Into eternal stone. Many of the trunks are still packed in a deposit of tine clay, which was left by the rece-'Ing waters, but the erosion of the wind has pulverized much of the clay and carried it off in the air, exposing the secrets that na ture burled under Its surface. One great tree spans a deep gulch 40 feet wide. It lies where it fell cen turies, perhaps ages, ago, and is a most beautiful specimen of petrified wood. The rings and the bark can be easily traced through the translucent agate, and It Is firm enough; and strong enough to last as many centuries as It has already spent In its peculiar posi tion. It Is undoubtedly the only bridge of agate In the world and alone Is worth a long journey to see. The Indians of the southwest used to visit the petrified forests frequent ly to obtain agate for their arrow and spear heads, and the material was scattered over the entire continent by exchange between the different .tribes, from the Isthmus of Panama to Ber ing strait The great deposit here ex plains where all the arrowheads of moss agate came from and other weapons and Implements of similar material that are found In the Indian mounds and graves of the central and western states. In the stono age" the agate of the petrified forest was the very best material that could be ob tained for both the Implements of war and peace of the aborigines. A scalp ing !-nifo could be made very easily from one of the chips of agate and could be ground to a very fine edge. Many crystals were used for Jewelry and ornaments also. Chicago Record.
