Trapper Gets the Family That Stole
His Flour and Nails
Dawson, N. W. Ter., August 16.—
(Special.)—Two large black bears and
two cubs were killed within sight of
Dawson by Bill Roman after # an ex
citing experience. Roman had a cabin
on Dion Gulch, above the city three
miles. While sitting in the place with
his back to the door in the evening he
noticed the place suddenly overcast by
a shadow.
“I turned, little suspecting anything
serious,” said Roman, “when to my hor
ror I saw a huge black bear standing
a few feet away. 1 leaped to my feet
and grabbed my .44 calibre Winchester
whi 'h is always near the door. 1 wasted
no time and tired when the brute was
ten feet away. The ball struck him
in the breast, but did not seem to feaze ,
him. The beast rushed forward and
was prepared to make a ferocious at-1
tack. He made one powerful side swipe !
at me. I side-stepped and when he was j
just at the muzzle drove the second
bullet home. It passed into his brain
and he reeled over at my feet, on my
very doorstep.
“Yah, I tell you, I was an excited
Swede, but I proved to that fellow it is
a bad day for bears when they tackle
the sons of the North.
"Well, yes, I was excited, but I had
killed many bears, and the feeling soon
wore off. I then dragged the carcass
around the house and got it on the
roof and prepared to skin him. What
was my surprise when I had barely
started the work to look up and see
a mother bear and two pretty cubs ad
vancing through the brush. I had left
my g*lin in the cabin, but it was only
a minute until I had leaped down, dart
ed Into the house and back with the
rifle. One more shot and I had brought
down the mother. Two more shots and
I had bagged the cubs.
“The little fellows weighed twenty
five pounds each and made delicious
steaks. I was up all that night skin
ning bears. I now have the skins in
towm, and they tell for themselves there
was class to that family. Every skin
is in fine condition. The male bear
was a large fellow. I think he had
been there before.
“Only a day or two previous I had
j been away from the cabin for a day
i and had left a sack of bread, which I
had bought in Dawson, under the bed
in a sack. Some bear came in, took
the sack, bread and all, and ran away
with it into the gulch. I tracked him
and found some of the bread. A pound
of nails also were in the sack, and I
regret the fellow took them off and
hid them, because I needed those nails
with which to stretch his hide. A good

Horses as Gold Mines
With the coming of the flat-racing
season, the thoughts of owners and train
ers of race horses are everywhere turned
towards the possibilities lying dormant
In the as yet untried sinews and mus
cles of their yearlings, says Tit Bits.
For some few', at all events, amongst
them are probably destined to turn out
veritable equine gold mines.
This is no mere figure of speech. The
sums earned in one way and another
by certain thoroughbreds in the past
almost surpass belief.
For example, St. Simon, who died at
Welbeck in the early part of 1908, and
who was undoubtedly the record money
making horse of his, or any other age,
earned in stud fees alone for his ducal
owner no less a sum than £250,000; while
his progeny netted over a half a million
sterling in nineteen years. And this, al
though he only cost originally the com
paratively small sum of sixteen hundred
To find anything approaching such a
record as this, it is necessary to go back
to the time of Eclipse, wrhose progeny
won £200,000; while his own earnings, on
the turf and at the stud, exceeded £100,
000. And Eclipse, it must be remember
ed, was bought for considerably less
than a hundred-pound note.
Even lower prices than this, however,
have at1 times been paid for horses that
have turned out true gold mines. Thus,
Top—The home of Major Echols. Bottom—A familiar scene at the out
let of the big spring branch—A negro baptising
Deadlock was sold for £20, and shortly
afterwards dropped a foal, the famous
Isinglass, who won the Derby of 1893
and £40,000. Queen of the Roses, again,
the dam of Revo d’Or, was given away
in exchange for a sack of oats. Hampton
the sire of Ladas, Merry Hampton, and
many other magnificent racers, was
bought for 150 guineas. While one-third
of that sum purchased The Rover, whose
son, the great St. Gation, was sold for
£15,000 after dead-heating in the Derby.
Then there was Stockwell, bought by
Lord Exeter for £180. Stockwell not only
won the St. Leger himself, but no few
er than six of his sons followed his
example, while three of them won the
Derby. In one year his descendants
earned in stakes sums aggregating over
£ GO,000.

Introduced to
the Boys,
Mothers and Fathers 01 this section
Very self evidently needed by the coming
generation and the first and only clothing
which accomplishes the great good work
yet does so in a playful spirit (so to speak),
which appeals to the boys. The garments
otherwise are as good values as Blacli’s can
give this fall for $5, $(3.50, $7.50, $8.50, $10
and $15.
Now—by your leave we’d like to show
you and the boys the “Right-Posture”
Suits; to try on a few coats; to listen to the
boys approval of the IDEA.
And by the way—the patented device which
suggests that boys stand up straight is hid
den in the coat.
Not too noticeable in the weight.
“Right Posture” is indeed RIGHT!
