THE NORTHERN TRIBUNE FEBRUARY, 5, 185. A LOGGERS STOBY, Thrilling Incident In the Pineries of Nrth- , era Michigan. "For a young man I have done pretty hard scraping in the Rockies and min ing regions of New Mexico and Arizona, but a few days ago I had the worst scare in my life in the lumber districts ef Northern Mlchigaa" The speaker was a young man of some 27 years, dressed ia rough and ready style and wearing a frizzly tow beard. lie shifted the posi tion of his broad shoulders as he loung ed back in aa easy chair ia the Sherman House office, puffed his cigar vigorously and then continued: "It was one of those bitter cold days we've lust been having, and I had got np at three o'clock to rouse the men and get the sprinkler out. The air seemed full of bine steel and cut to my marrow like a razor. One of the teamsters got scared ont and played oil slek, so I had to take his place. When we had got a good load I took the reins and sat down oa the butts of the logs, leaving the two loggers on behind. Of course about twenty feet of the load hung. off the last bob. The road was a sheet of ice. for the sprinkler ran oyer it every morning, and the horses were sharp shod, so we slid along smoothly till we got to the slide a pretty steep incline ending in a turn which was mighty sharp for a road sixty feet wide. As soon as we started down my hair be gan to stand on end, for the horses gal loped like fury te keep ahead of the bob which were slewing all over the road. I got so paralyzed and nervous that when we approached the turn I reined in too suddenly. I felt the front bobs jump one way and the back bobs the ether. The hind ends of the logs whistled through the air like willow switches, and I heard the loggers yell: 'For God's sake, The next thing was a loud snap! snapl snap! like three tremend ous paper crackers as the big log chain broke like so many cotton threads. Did you overuse a switch sling, Whirl it round and round your head, you know, till a sudden twist sends the apple off the end and spinning into the air? Well that is the way I felt, and that is lust what I thought of as I was shot off into the air, oyer, and over, and over, till I struck la a snowdrift some 100 feet or more from the road. When I struggled back through the snow I found the hor ses trying to. kiek loose from the few bits of harness that dandled about them the bobs tangled around the trunk of a small pine tree, and the logs scattered to the four winds. One logger crawled back to the road with a fractured leg and the other soon followed with a dis located shoulder. One had struck a tree and the second had landed against a stump. They afterwards told mo In camp these things were not at all unus ual, and, as I had some pretty heavy bruises myself, I conclnded that I was not made to boss a lumber camp. So I was driven to town next day to tele graph the management that the head teamster was filling my place, and that I was on my way to Chicago; and you bet your life I am glad I did it." Chica go Tribune. About Dogn. TRUE TO TIIE LAST. Quite recently the Canadian papers re ported aa anecdote of canine fidelty which, had it been told of a Roman Cath olic soldier or a Hindoo nurse, would have been bruited throughout the civil ized world as an instance of humanity's supremest devotion to duty. The story as told to us is that when nearing Mon treal the engine-driver ef a train saw a great dog standing on the track and barking furiously. The driver blew his whistle, yet the hound did not budge, but crouching low was struck by the lo comotive and killed. Some pieces of white muslin on the engine attracted driver's notice; he stopped the train and went back. Beside the dead dog was a dead child, which, it is supposed, had wandered on the track and had gone to sleep. The poor, watchful guardian had given its signal for the train to stop; but unheeded, had died at its post, a victim to duty. Chamber' 8 Journal. , WIIY HE WOULDN'T EAT. It is related by Professor Bell that when a friend of his was traveling abroad he one morning took oat his purse to see if it contained sufficient change for a day's jaunt ho proposed making. He departed from his lodgings, leaving a trusted dog behind. When he dined be took out his purso to pay. and found that he had lost a gold coin from it. Oa returning home in the evening his servant informed him that the dog reemed to be very ill, as they could not induce it to eat anything. He went at once to his favorite, and as soon as he entered the room the faithful creature ran to him, deposited 'tho gold coin at his feet and ihen devoured the food placed for It with great eagerness. The truth wac that this gentleman had drop ped the coin in the morning; the dog had picked It up and kept it in his mouth, fearing even to eat lest it should lose its master's property before an opportunity offered to restore it. Chamber's Jour nal. DIED WITH TIIE1I. In a burning New York stable the oth er day a bull terrier was nursing four pups in the back part. The pups were too young to get out. Their eyes were hardly open, and they lay by their moth er's side feebly blinking at the few rays of light that got In through the back stable window, In the excitement of the fire nobody at first thenght of the dogs. . When the horses had been saved a boy went around to the back of the sta ble and tried to coax th mother to leave her pups and escape. The straw she was lying on began to burn, and the flames were nearing her. She would net go. She tried to shove the pups off the burn ing straw. They rustled closer to her. She took them np one at a time in her month, but she could not save them all. The bey coaxed and coaxed,, but the mother would not leave the burning straw. The boy could net get at her without risking himself, and the whole family burned to death. DOUliLlfi RATIONS. Here next is a story of a eunning dog of a dog who usad to get an allowance of two-pence for his dinner. He would take the money to the butcher with whom his master dealt, carrying It In a basket, and then carrying the meat home in the same way. At first the master used to go with the dog, but, falling ill, the dog was left to go by himself, always, howev er, getting the twopence to pay for the meat. When the master got better he was surprised to get a bill from the batcher charging him with the dog's daily supply of food. The master could not understand this, but he began to watch the dog, and he saw that the ani mal took the money to another butcher altogether, anl getting meat there, dined oa the sly. after which he would take the empty basket te the regular butcher aad get another dinner on credit. This sec ond dinner he would always take heme qalte innocently the rogue! Glasgow Herald. Mrs. James A. Garfield was sued In the Common Pleas Court at Cleveland by a woman named Thankful Tanner for $25,000.

In 1885 The Inter Ocean enters upon the fourteenth year of its existence, Given unusu al confidence by the people In its early days it has steadily grown in favor until this day, when the publishers take pride In the fact that the paper goes Into more homes and has a greater number of readers than any -publication west the Allofheniei. From the beginning The Intee Ocean has stood firmly by the principles ot the Republi can party, and has, In season and out of sea son, contended for "protection to American lit' dustry." It does not agree with the Idea that the mission of the Republican party is finished; on the contrary It believes that, purified by ad. versity, it will in the near, future again rise to the higher planes of thought and action and be completely restored to the confidence of the American people. The most important agen. cies In accomplishing this result will he Repub lican journals. If a reliable, stanch, Republl can newspaper was important when the Re publican party was In power, It is doubly so now that the Democracy control the National Government. The Inter Ocean will In the future as In the past be the medium through which the best Republican thoughts will be given to the peo. pie. It will voice the convictions of advanced Republicans without being unfair even to Bourbon Democrats. It will be aggressively Republican without being bitterly partisan, and will give aa much attention to the affairs of Cleveland's administration as it would have given te the administration of Mr, Blaine had he been elected, With an Associated Press franchise, with special wires reaching te New York and Washington, with special corres pondents in all Important points in the country, The Inter Ocean will use Its facilities for col. lecting news without fear or favor, and so far as governmental affairs or party movements are concerned will give a fuller record than any other paper. All of the old departments will be continued. The scope of the WOMAN'S KINGDOM will be widened so as to take in all the industrial and reform movements in which women are Inter, ested and engaged. OUR CURIOSITY SHOP, now a standard, will bo given greater variety and Interest. In tho FARM AND HOME and other departments the widest possible range of topics will bo discussed. Of original short stories and serials, the very best by American and English authors will be given during the year. Arrangements have been made to publish during the year short sto ries by BOYESEN, HOWELLS, LATHROP, and others, aud a new serial by the author of One Summer," and to publish all these In ad dition to the serials by MISS BRADDON and other English authors. In every department of news and literature The Inter Ocean will make a better record than it has ever done. TERMS TO MAIL SUBSCRIBERS, POSTPAID.
