WILD SPORT FOR HUNTSMEN ON THE PLAINS OF MONTANA. Swiftly Kuutiing Animals vriili tlio Hyo of :i Hatrk-Tlio Kotl Plan's jlethod of Cratvling Xcar tlio G:tvac TTfcin T-.vo EalLs. To hunt tlio antolopo cnccccsf uliy requires more tbau ordinary skiiL With iha excep tion of mountain sheep, antelope aro tho mo,i difficult gamo animals of epproaeb on this continent. A bear will ctand up and actually seek fight; a buffalo bull xvill run at first, but once wounded, a stand up fisn; to the bitter end is the probable outcome; an elk can be approached and fclaiii without ex ercising extraordinary precouiicia, and a deer is sometimes as dangerous and as bellig erent as a mountain lion. On tho other hand, the antelope first, last and all the time depends upon his legs for safety, and itls fair to say that they aro tho fleetest, ai they are the mesfc graceful of quadrupeds. Thrtre is no fun in store for the greenhorn who at tempts to hunt thU animal without under standing its ways and habits. Anybody can hunt and kill a bison, a lear and many of the other largo game animals; but tho ante lope demands the mebt skillful of huntsmen to compete with its keen senses of sight and 6mcil, not to s)eak of that other important adjunct, oztromo fleetness of foot. Tho power of scent is wonderfully acute in them, lUi IK 3.J1113 LUiti IJICV Willi SUIUil U ljjd.il UU COO yards and beyond with tho most astoul-'a- ir.-o-rnr-r.ii.vM. TiiMi- t.nn,.irv nflifni, h.. yond all conception. I havo frequently rcsn antelope with ono lejf shot away and hanging by tho tendons alone, outrun and escape from tho fleetest plains ponies. Their race is not a long one (not more than six or seven inili, and it is possible that an American hcisu might run thorn down; butasnrulo nothing on the praries can catch them, and the grey hound is about the only four-footed beast in existence that can bo depended upon to keep pace with and possibly outrun them. THE EYE OF A HAWK. ITo animal in tha world possesses a keener tight excepting the giraffe. In stalking ante lope tlio principal point is to keep out of tight and noxfc to keep out of smell. Don't imagine Lccause a band i-; a couplo of miles away ap parently feeding and nil with heads down that none aro on tho lookout. Tha chances aro ten to ono that you aro seen first, although they may not move. Always hunt over uroiren ground ami uuuuiatmg prairie. If on horseback, dismount and skirt tho ridgo ahead, as jour horses head always comes into view beforo j'ou do and thko oft' your hat, which becomes visible beforo 3-ou yourso.. can seo beyond. Do ail tho crawling possible. Guch is tho red man's method, and he gen erally bags threo times as much game as any two whito men, unless tho latter adopt tha tamo tactics. Ninety per cent, of all tho gamo secured by Indian;! is shot ithin !)00 yard. They aro everlasting crawlers nad simply no good at all beyond tho oOO yard limit. On tho other hand, a whito man plunges ahead in his natural happy go luclry fashion, scares tho game, thus giving it a good send off, and then blazes away while tho ani mals ai o 0:1 a dead run. I havo discovered many valuable pointers as tho result of long experience, and noto a fow of thorn for the benefit of thoso who havo a notion to try their hand at stalking antelopo. When a band scents or seas you they run across the wind for about 900 or 1,000 yards, and then turn and run straight up the wind. Tho species aro victims of intense curiosity and at times havo walked straight into death traps, all tho whilo knowing and s-enting danger, yet so unbounded is their curiosity to investigate strango and unusual objects that thoy aro unable to withstand tho temp tation to look a little deeper and satisfy this truly feminine instinct. A hunter in full knowledge of this failin cither flags thorn or sticks weeds into his hat whlla crawling. So long as not seen and particularly not under stood, the' will not run. but merely bound a few steps at a time, then halt, or else run around the strango object in a circle. Even if scented, though not seen, tho antelope will want to know more about you and the object of your visit before taking to their heels. WIIKK TO HUNT TIIEil. An excellent time to hunt thorn is jnt be foro sunset and when about to seek cover or a bed. Get to (ho leeward and between thorn and tho sun. wl.en the latter is about to drop behind tlio IiilU; then walk slov.iy towards tho game with a., little motion as possible. Unless scented, f Isto 13 little danrvr of a dis turbance cr of flight, fo- this pai ' nilar ani mal, gifted willi Mich Leon eyecight, cannot see anything that is between them and tlio sun. I have ofion approached to within 100 yards of a band by adopting the tactics named, and yet thoy did not become alarmed. Buffalo v. ill t.lwpasito the v.indwarl, like their cousins of the antelope family, Jmt-thoy will rtand no suph foolishness as sun biind ncsj. A Ystl flannel shirt is extiem j fasci nating to antelopo; nl-o, a red Ir:.akerchief cr anything else o u crimson In: . As a rulo theo anftnab L.o .r;-j iu snil hands of fifty or sixty, and if in large numbers among tho foothill-, on the open prairie or elsewhere, a close examination will discover them to bo congregated in smaller groups or four or flvo dozen, who, an.:l tho multitudo, keep closely herded among themselves. They arc neat, clean cut, handsome, and as dainty as a lady in their diet, feeding as thoy do on the t.n- derest stalks of grass and tlio delightful prairie clover. Astonishing as it may fem, a criprled animal is, or appears to be, tho fleetest of them all, as ho genorailj- takes the lead, tho whole baud following whither ho goes. I once mado an irapormnt discoverj in hunting which I have frequently tried on antelopo with marvelous success. It is to load with two balls instead of ono. TIte method named is of no sorvico whatever ex cept at short range. At distances beyond 1200 yards and even a little less it proves a failure; but I have found it to work like a iwi unucr J tharm at 150 yards and under. Antelopo aro 9UU1 U,L'llu3lill ilUlA LlJUb il.LCl US.il! MJVb to death they run a tremendous distance lie forc falling: but in the case of catching two la'U instead of onf, I have never known an antelope run more than fif t-y yards Loforo going to grass. Fur the Springfield breech loader, which I use on all my hunting trips, besides tho ordmary cartridge case which holds too charge of powder and the conical bullet weighing ."(X) grains, I also carry a round ball, the calibre of the gun, which I first iasprt in tho breech and then shovo the metal cartridge in afterwards. At 103 yards the spread is not inoro than three inches, ami at loo yart bota saols are pretty apt to catch the beast somewhere. It is surprising how quickly an antelope will come to a halt with two balls shot through him instead of one. Fort Keogh Cor. Philadelphia Tiin Toaqnin Uecomint: Civilized.

THE DIME MUSEUM BARKER. llo is Proud and Tain, bat His Sonorous Voice is Worth Sloncy. : lYo havo trouble in getting a profes sional barker who is willing to assist gen erally," said a dimo museum proprietor on the Bowery to a reporter. "Yoa-seo e barker i3 as proud of his calling as an ac tor, and when ho gets through talking in front of tha museum he dosen't want to do anything else. They call it their act, and goMhrough it with the samo pride that Wilson Barrett acts the character of Clau dian. It ia no easy matter to bark for a mu seum; it takes training, and a groat dil of it. A man that hasn't got a good pair of lungs is not fitted for tha position. The rising inflection, too, must bo used almost exclusively, for it can be heard better. Tho gateman at a railroad depot is no where beside a professional barker. Tho former in not so clear and distinct in pro nunciation, and lias a rising inflection of the voice for ono or two syllables, and then a dreadful falling inflection, which bos tho general effect of oonfounding tho listener. But tho barker is clear and distinct, and the passing crowd can catch on to. what ho is saying. I confess that he is mechanioal, as a rule, and varies his stereotyped sen tences very little in th& course of months. All barkers aro vain, and many aro as capricious as prima donnas. "I endeavored to get mine ono day to bark for a special crowd passing down tho street, but he would not do it because it uas not Ins regular hour to go on. Thoy are very exacting in their contracts as to how many hours they shall bo on duty, and ., - . , - , . " ' ! the proprietor who gets one to bark outsido i of hls regular time w a genius. Thoy aro somewhat indepoz?uent, because good bark ers are scarce. If a greenhorn goes to bark in front of ti museum the peojilo passing guy him fearfuliy and do the musoum moro harm than good. But a. veteran cannot ha rattled, ho never suitors from stago fright, and no matter who laughs at him, he talks right along and pays no attention to any one. Fow barkers over rise above thoir condition. A barker onco, a barker always. They got very good salaries, as much as tamo of tho minor 'freaks' in ths show, but livo up to thoir income. They are fond of big diamonds, and no well regulated barker has a shirt front unless it is brilliantly studded with gems. Their groat drawback, besides being vain and too proud to do other work, is their fond ness for tho cup. When tho matinoo is over tho actor goes to a wet grocery and braces up his voice with half a dozen "cock tails. I onco had tho temerity to ask a barker to personate some freak in tho mu seum, and he became so furious ho wanted to kill me. 'I, an artist, becomo a freak!' ho cried, in a rago. He quit me, and I had to baric for two weeks beforo I got another. It is no easy job, though, as Eomo imagine. " 7ew York Alail and Ex press. The Welfare of Paris Horses. Paris is properly named tho Enfer des Chevaux, and only within tho last fow years have protestations agaiiut the horriblo cru elty inflicted en horses been anything but idle word-. Xow we havo "cocietcs," as in America, and a "Icaguo' formed against vivisection. Tho "Society for tho Preven tion of Cruelty to Animals" has a prop erty at Arceull Cachan, valued at ?0,000, and tho annual expense is about $4,000. Tho tw o branch establishments are at As niorep, and tho w holo aim of tho societies is to save as many animals as possible from the savants who, in tho name of humanity, compel them to sufTor martyrdom. Some tirao ago I visited theso homos of ihe res cued, and found ono of tho mc3t interesting in tho Ruo 15arrc, Asniores. Any one who wishes to abandon a dog or cat throws it over the wall, and tho animal falls upon a strong netting that saves it from injury. As soon as its cry is heard, n woman comes from tho house, pets and feeds tho poor creuture, then places it in a cushioned bas ket. Every room of this threo stor' house is heated, and against the wall3 aro baskoti in which lie every hind of Email animals, young and old, beautiful and ugly. Tho superintendent of this establishment also scok tho welfare of horse-;. Every day she comes to Paris, and, if, sho soos a street badly paved, immediately a letter is written to the prefect of tho Seine. If shs hears thr sound of a whip tho coach man is implored not commanded: "Striko me, but respect that poor b?3t." At the cab stands she looks for tho animals who need sponging, and gives a few sous to each coachman to thai ho will moro quickly do his duty. When sho poos a horse loo old to work, but nevertheless compelled to obe-, sho bu the animal and &( i. to St. Denis, whero its la3- arc cjxmt in com fort and happiness.

Chicago TJi.3. Won't Tnho Whi!ty with Oyetcrs. Thcro h just now another fad going in connection with the cr.ling of oyslen. A largo share of tho destruction of the bi valves is accomplished in connection with tho imbibing of some kind of intoxicating liquor. In the restaurants and lunch houses tho main article of diet is tho oyster in various forms, and nine times out of ten something in a liquid form '3 taken to wah hem down. A well known eh' mist in Rochester "has recently aiven out tho resale 01 so.o cx- Torimentc ho has ti ied to show tho influence of different liquor, upon tho oyster. lie reports that he placod in a bowl of vrhisity one oyster and "in another bowl of leer another oyster, and left them to st?nd over night. When tho bowls wcro-nexS in vestigated tho cyster in tho bcr hsd dis appeared, having been dissolved or absorbed by tho mlt liquor. Tho 03-ster in tho bowl of whislrj- was contracted to a hard and leathers- lump. The deduction from the re sult of this experiment is that malt liquor should bo drank with tho oyster as it will aid in the process of digest'or:, and that any '"hard liquors' should be avoided, as they render tho oysters indigestible.

Eat can anything bo moro musical, more gratifying to tho car, mors melodious than that which is coiled Italian music It does not cra possible, for it is so near perfection, I think that perhaps just at present it is well for you to havo a season or so without tho Italian opera; after that would como a desire to hear it again, and I think th era would b-3 a good field for an ex cellent raortager who would form r. com pany of good artists."

IN THE BLACK NINETY FEET DIAMOND'S HOME, UNDER GROUND. tife and labor by lamplight Seen and Unseen rerils of the 3Iiner's Occupa tionA Stroll Through Cndcrjjroand Avenues " Shooting Down." Having supplied ourselves with small lamps we go ahead. The avenue through which wo aro traveling is thirty or forty feet wide, tho roof high enough to allow us to walk erect, and tho ground dry and dusty. Ibwand then we meet a train of three cars being hauled bj- one mule. Sometimes these trains Euddenl- emere from side entries, tho exist ence of which never would havo been sus pected b- a stranger, and final!-, as mule, driver and train crawl out of one, evidently of more magnitude than any -we have passed, ifr. I remarks: '"Let's go in here." We enter, and after traveling a quarter of a mile land in a chamber whero men aro at work filling cars with coal that has been blown down with powder. Holes aro" bored into the face of the stratum with a drill operated b- compressed air, which is sent into tho mino through iron pipes connecting with a powerful compressor in tho engine room above. Theso drills run at lightning speed, boring a hole an inch and a half hi diameter mid six feet deep in less than three min utes. Then tho machine is moved to an other point six or eight feet distant and an other hole bored. Tho three sides of the room aro thus penetrated with holes, into which blasts are inserted, the fuse attached and then the miner connects the wire of au electrical hand dynamo with ono fuso at a time, walks off to a safe distance and forms tho circuit thcro is a flash, a jar, and several hundred bushels of mineral come down with a tremendous crash. The other blasts are ''touched off'' in the same way, with Binnlar results, and then tho man with the drill and the electrical battery loads them on his "tool car,'' moves out to tho main line and hunts up another chamber. Returning to tho main nvenuo wo move forward until wo arrive at a chamber where a machino is at work. These machines are also operated by compressed air, moving back and forth against tho wall of coal and breaking it down by penetrating it with a powerful iron fork. Tho imploment is placed on tracks that move on an iron track, and is so constructed that tho prong will cover an arc of six feet in its immediate front. The truck nnd tho machino can be moved at ease and without the loss of much time, and w hen operated on full time does tho work of ten men. Mr. Brandenberger, tho general super intendent of tho mine, whom wo met at this point, stated that tho difficulty with tho ma chines was that they tvero constantly getting out of order, and, it being necessarj' to take them out of the mino for repair, which some times cost as much as tho machine when new, ho did not think there was much saved in the long run over hand mining. Sometimes a machino would ba virtually ruined from a sudden fall of slate or shalo or contact with a mass of sulphuret of iron. When at work, moving back and forth, sending their iron tongues into the black bosom of six a foot vein of coal, each attack being followed b' a crash and a tumble of perhaps a ton of mineral, the- present an effect on the senses both won derful and startling. They aro somewhat more dangerous than hand mining, from tho fact that the3' aro moro sudden in thoir effects, and at ill times and in all mines tho operator must look out for sudden falls of slate. A general stroll through the mino covered a distance of about two miles, nnd led through man- avenues and streets running at right angles or parallel to each other, just like streets and nvenues in n cit-, and laid out with as much mathematical precision. In all mines in this part of tho country pillars of coal aro left standing to support the roof, nud these pillars mn3" bo compared with the buildings covering blocks of ground in the city, the entries, us thoy arc called b3 miners, being the streets surrounding the buildings. The end of the avenue, or whero actual mining is going on, is called a chamber, nnd during our walk we found men at work in nearly all of tho latter. Through ever- avenue is laid nn iron tramway over which the coal must bo hauled in the dummy cars to tho bottom of the shaft. In tramping about you are apt to como in collWon with a train of these dum mies nt an- moment, mid to avoid accidents recesaes aro unk into tho walls nt regular dis tances, into which yon can step and bo per fectly safe. Hero ami thero wide avenues are driven oil from the main avenue to distant poi'ti when smaller ones nro pushed out like the roots of a tree, with the exception tliat they generally run at regular angles to each other, so that in tho course of time a labyrinth is formed out of which tho unfamiliar explorer would r.'vcr find his way except by the merest accident The miner soon becomes as familiar to them, however, as does any resident of a city to its streets, and when he enters tho mino never gets lost or confused in the journey to his chamber. He is assisted, however, very materially b;- the numbering of every avenue, a placard lieing hung up at tho entrance of each on wlu'ch is iainled the proper numbers. In our journey wc passed through about fifty of these avenues. In one or two of them we were comjiol'od to ?toop considerably in moving forward, but in all others tho ceilings were not; "rss than seven feet high. . The ground under foot was s-toooth and dry, th- atmosphere puro and tho temperature about CO Fahrenheit. Tho volume of air sent through all j ru$ of the mine by mealis of the fan keep, it clear of smoke, foul gas or the unpleasant odor emitted from the small oil lamps worn in the caps cf the workmen. Upon first entering the mino the darkness u intense, but in a few moments the eyes aj pecr to overcome it. and a sort of weird twi light surrounds you, through which objects mav bi seen several rods. Tle further tho min- is penetrated the les intense the dark ness soenrj to baconie. As might naturally ba supposed, tho acoustics of the mine are perfect. Low tones and even whispers of tho human voice may ho heard great distances. During the journey we Iieard a tremendous crash whch appeared to be within a few feet of us, but my compacion, seing that I was somewhat startled, remarked that it was caused by too -Shooting ijown" of a inast of coal nearly 1,0.0 feet away. Distance and locality cut as much of a figure in a raise as they do on the surfare of the earth. 3ners will tell you that -room No. 20 is a quarter of a mile away: that is to ra it you must go down 2Jo. 13 to No. 15, turn to the right and walk foar bJoeks, then to tha left one block, and yon can't help finding it." Fol lowing these direction- yoa are as certain tc roach Ko. 30 in a mino as you would be in reaching a similar number by means of a sim ilar direction on any street ia Chicago. BslleTiHo (Ills.) Cor.
