The What-Was-It. Accounts of depredations being committed on stock belonging to farmers in Deer Park and Vermillion townsliips, by some sjrt of a wild animal, reached this city Tuesday, and on Wednesday a large party whs organized to go in quest of the varmint." The party, consisting of Sheriff Milligan, Andrew Lynch, Judge Gilbert, V. J. Cary, Dr. E. W Weis, Jas. Milligan. George Beatty, Henry Mayo, C. S. Cullen. Nat. Eels. Will Stead, Wm. Splain, Charley Felte, Ed. Nattinger.of the Tuner, Frank Kendig, of the Journal, and a Fa ee Thadfr pencil-pusher, arrived at the hunting grounds at S r. m. There were six dog3 in the party, and on arriving at what is known as Horse shoe Ben 1, on the Ver million river, about 12 miles south of Otta wa, the doirs were let loose, and soon their deep baying sounded through the dense woods that line the river at that point, me party was hurriedly gotten together, and not prepared for a long seige. Some of them had noovercoats, only two had guns, and about nine-tenths of them were more orna mental than useful. The animal, variously designated as a panther, bear and tiger, and by others a catamount, hyena or lynx, wag not run down, and no traces of him were discovered. Thos. Johns, a farmer of that vicinity, came into enmp at sunset and cor roborated the story that a wild animal was loose around there; a farmer named Ott added his testimony also. E. H. Raymond's colt was nttaeked by the animal not long ago. It was also seen by other residents of tho neighborhood. After a three hours' further ehnse the capture of the animal was given up aud the party returned to the city. It may be added that though the party was poorly supplied with arms, there was suffi cient ammunition in the crowd to kill two or three tigers. Frank Kendig had a field glass, and when ho got tired sweeping the horizon lo. king for signs of the "painter," ho would pull out another glass and take a survey of tho planets. Nattingcr became f rocious ns ho ncared the probable lair of the beast, and soon got into a huge pair of top-boots, overalls, hunting shirt and slouch ed hat. Nat. Eels, Sumner Cullen and Geo. Beatty had on their lavender-colored panta. loons, with kid glove attachments. Judge Gilbert, Henry Mayo and Andrew Lynch became bow-legged from climbing the almost perpendicular cliffs, and lost all their sus pender buttons. The result of the hunt was one poor little wood-pigeon. However, two foxes were unearthed, but they, also, were too cute, and were not captured. To-morrow noon a large party leave again for the scene and will camp out all night, and next day it is thought a force of 1U0 people will be in full pursuit of the beast. The party of Wednesday had a right royal time, even though they failed to capture the wbat-is-it. There is some grand and beau tiful scenery at the Horse-Shoe Bend, and it repaid the party fully for the trip. To-mor. row the hounds will be in charge of Sheriff Milligan and P. J. Cary, and a big hunt is anticipated. AHyliini riildifii.
