HcntliiK tlic Mild Hoar In Counectlint.
"WiM boar hunting in Connecticut." laid au old Windham County fanner recently to our correspondent, "is something I never expected to bee in mv day. Ncvettbeless, it L a solid fact tha't isn't be denied." The fanner's iuhit- Hon is true. The finest and most excit ing sporU in H indani County tins fall and winter lias been hunting w ild hogs. In Hie tow n of Ashfonl there is an i-xten-ii c tract of sterile land that is nearly all & w ildurncns. I.arge f oretts cover the Jofty hills, and in thehollows are impass able miaraji', quagmires and lene thicket!., and along the hillsides rocky caies. In this district liio and breed and aro hunted the wild hogs. How the hogs camu there is a question; but it Ls the general "lielief that they are the offspring of a litter of pigs that trajed an ay from the farm of Mr. lios wortli Kcwral jears ago, and became wild. Their number now is ariouly estimated at from lift)" to seientj-five bead; and at certain seasons they do much mischief, prowling around the farms and out-houses at night and root ing up fields of crops. 'Iheyhaie re lumed lotai'agcn. They are described as long-bodied and lean, coiorrsl with coarse, black bristles, and aro ferocious and formidable antag mists. Their tuks are long, (.harp and tuned. They lurk in the anerts of tlie woods, f ceiling on nuts and forest twigs, and when disturbed nisli out with a loud pnort, and mn with the mviftness of tlie w ind. They ha c long since been voted a common enemy, and ouryhuuicr earns the gratitude of the tanners lij shooting them. The hunters ilon'l like to go alone to meet the how, but, well-armed with breech-lo-uling rifles', or puis, loaded with buckshot, go in hlrong parties About the juiddle of October w us the first hunt of this year, and several hogs were killed after a tierce conflict, and brought into the illageof Ashford amid great rejoicing. Tlie carcases were oomplctely jierforatcil with buck'hot. -Since then several other parties have tried the sport, but in eacli case the game was too wary to hazard a battle or too swift for the hunter. In one in stance a big hog. with flaming 030s and erect bristles, starti-d up out of a thicket justahcad of the hunters and dashed off in full iew of the sportsmen, who were too astonished to xhoot. Last Wednesday the must formidable, and elaborate hunting uxieilition of tho J ear set out from JJrooklyu, Windham cjounh. There were nine men, all aniuif with breech-loading rllles. A dvuble wagon loaded with munitions of war, and drawn by a pair of heavy horvM, cunwjed them to the field. A small and liiely domestic pig was car ried along for a decoy. A drizzling rain was falling, and the ground was 'slip lery. The jarty tramped all day through the wet underbrush, going over lhirU miles, and got not a glimpse of a --ild hog. The domestic pig w as a com plete failure as a decoy. It was intend ed to take the youthful animal into a part of the forest frequented by tha hogs. Mid to haui one. of the party secreted in the bush press it to his breast. It was expected that the pig w ould squeal ago nizingl) in return, and attract the wild m ine to tho spot. The man with the pig secreted himself, according to the requirements of tho programme, and oqucozed the animal ii.iously, but it would not squeal. He then" tried to ooav it t) sound a note of appeal; he pinched itsearand trod on its tail, but not a sound wonld tho pig utter. The party accordingly put the animal in a Lig, and lute in the afternoon, footsore auJ disgu-tcd, rolleil home in their two ttrse vehicle- Their entry into the vil lage wa greeted with shoub. of .deris ion, and the prion of tame pork rose a cent and a quarter per ound.

When tha ) piece of paper was presented to the pay ing teller, that ofheial lirst scratched j ins cum ami men went 10 see we 1 resi dent of the bank, w ho at that time was llr. Iloker. father of Hon. George H. llokcr. Mr. linker camo fowanl smil ingly and said that while Colonel For ney had quite a large sum of money oa deposit in the bank the amount to his credit w as not equal to that called fox by the check, but still if Colonel Forney would step down to the bank himself the check would be honored. The friend returned to the iVcs office in an indig nant frame of mind, and told Colonel Forney that he had made him the bearer of 3 cheek that had been dishonered, for the reason that there was not sufficient funds in the bank. "Some mistake, sir, some mistake," replietl tho big-hearted editor. " I have much more than that on depo-it in the Hank." and he uttered the name ol a familiar depository other than the Gi- rani. " Hut I did not go there," replied the friend in amazement. The check is drawn on the Girard Hank." "Mi! my!" said Colonel Forney, "did I make such a silly mistake? Why, I Iiai e not a penny in the Girard Hank, I did not intend to send there " Oh, es, oil ha e a largo dejxjsit in the Girard Hank," answered the friend, "but it was not sufficient to meet this check." ' A mistake, sir; a mistake," replied tho Colonel. "I haie not a penny there." A isit was made to the Girard Hank, lioweier, and Colonel Forney found to his amazement that he was much richer than he thought. In the same wav, when tlie Longacres' Hank of Lancaster failed. Colonel ioruey found that he iiad a long-time deposit tiierc that he had know 11 nothing of. It was this indifference in money matters that exemplified probably as well as any other trait the laiish disposition of the man now mourned; lavish not only with his wealth, but with the more preeious treasures of his heart. lliiladiljJiii Press.
