Have Good and Bad SeatonS. "One would naturally think that our trasiness at this time of year would be At its best, but it isn't," said a tobac conist yesterday. "Our cigar trade al ways falls off in bad weather, especial ly when the bad weather is accompan ied by high winds. Even habitual smokers don't enjoy a cigar in the open air when the wind is blowing. Just take note of the number of men you see smoking on the street some calm, -clear day, and then note the difference a dy like this. You will see that it lias quite an effect upon cur business. Our receipts are much higher in sum mer than in winter, just because cf this. It's all well enough to picture a man smoking before a cosy fireside, but there are lots of men who. have cranky wives, and who seldom smoke in the house. During the summer they can do their smoking out of doors with, a full measure of enjoyment. Yes; summer is the best time for us."

W. NELSON. a CGOOCOOOOCOOOOOOOOGOOO GOO WENTY years ago when I was a boy up in Allegany County, New York, I got lost in the woods one day while taking home a cieer tnat had fallen prize to me in a curious way, before I found myself I had about as ex citing an experi ence as ever, any - V boy had in the woods. In those days the southern part of Allegany County was pretty much all , widerness. Bear and deer were still numerous in the woods, and the pan ther and wolf had yet some foothold. My father's farm wasn't far from the Pennsylvania line. The maple sugar crop was quite an important one with as, and foliowing close on the gath ering of that crop the wild pigeons came into the region by the million, and during the nesting time we didn't do much else but kill pigeons and col- ect squabs, the marketing of which brought more income to the farm than any other one crop the farm could raise. It was the killing of wild pigeons that at last inspired me with the am bition to bag game of more pretension. I wanted particularly to kill a deer. One day, along toward the middle of March, my father sent me to our sugar bush to clean out the sap troughs and get the buckets together preparatory to the season's sugar mak ing. I seized this opportunity to do a little deer hunting. So I sneaked the oiu pigeon gun ana iook it aiong witn me. There had been a fresh fall of snow over night. The sugar bush was only a mile from home, and I got through my task there in an hour or two. Then I started on the hunt for a deer. . I traveled a mile or more through the thick growth, and then bore off to my right in the direction, as I supposed, of a small laurel swamp that I knew. I had gone half a mile when suddenly out of a clump of bushes, not twenty feet ahead of me, jumped three deer. trust on the other side of the clump of bushes stood two second growth pine trees, meir stems not more man a foot apart. suppose it was the great fright that my suuuen coming upon tnem gave them that rattled one of the deer so that it sprang forward directly toward those two trees and attempted to pass ueiween tnem xne space was too small, and only the deer's head and neck entered it. luncnng that it could go no further, 1 -4545 "myii was a yearung aoe, Th& German WOrkman is slow, there made a frantic effort .that she broke fote his wages are small.

After I got oyer my excitement ! pulled the dead deer from between the trees and, started to drag it home. I had dragged the deer along for half an hour or more, when I was sur- prised to come upon the trail of some one who was traveling through those woods; either dragging a doe, too, or something else over the snow. And he's got his dog with him," said I, noticing the tracks in the snow fol- lowing the trail. . I made up my mind that I was bear ing p. little too much to the west to make home the shortest way, and I took a straight course away from the trail of the man an? the dog. I traveled and traveled, and began to think I must be pretty near home, when I came to another trail of a man dragging something on the snow, and the tracks of a dog, as I thought, ac companying it. This was getting to be' so odd and bo spooky that I stopped and began to wonder .what it all meant Then I saw that the man's tracks were exact ly like mine. Further investigation eatisfied me that they were not only use mine, out they were mine. Then it struck me with startling force that I had been simply walking tu u swag nfl jv&s uoupUn on my course, i was lost In the woods, But that didn't account for the dog. For the first time I turned and looked back. There, not two rods behind me, a zreat gaunt, tawny beast, its eyes I glaring, was crouching in the snow. I needed no one to tell me what it was. I was not only lost in the woods, but a hungry panther, attracted by the scent of the dead deer, was on my trail. For a moment I stood staring at the panther, unable to move. Then my first impulse was to abandon the deer and flee. The panther crept slowly for ward. I nerved myself and resolved not to surrender the deer unless I had to. My gun had a charge of pigeon shot in 'it The -folly of trying to kill a panther with pigeon shot never oc curred to me. I 'aimed at the panther and fired. The panther yelled, sprang for a tree near by, and climbed nearly to the top. Without delay, I started on with my deer as fast as I could go. On one side of me there was a good growth of timber and I skirted that. I had gone but a hundred yards when the panther came leaping along from tree to tree, until he was In a tree just behind me. I had' no more ammunition for my gun, and I stopped and uttered as terrific a yell at the panther as I could find lungs for. The persistent beast leaped back a tree or two and I hur ried on with my deer. But the moment I started, the panther resumed the chase. When he got even with me in a tree. I yelled again. The panther did not re treat this time, and I began to make up my mind that it was a little doubtful if I got to Nelson farm with my dee, or if I got there at all, when, I heard a shout come from the woods ahead of me. I yelled again, and the answering shout was so near this time ihat the man who made it came into sight not more than two minutes behind it. The man was a hunter named George Parker. The panther climbed higher up in the tree when Parker appeared, but made no show of retreating. Park er was loaded for panther, and his load went through that one's heart at the first fire. I was so glad to see the beast tumble to the ground and give its last kick that when Parker told me I was four miles from home and steadily traveling further away, it didn't dampen my spirits a bit Parker took the panther's scalp and helped me home with my deer. I remember that I drew near to .ome with more fear and apprehension than I had felt even in the face of the pursuing panther, for my father was a man of few words, but of quick and strenuous action in matters of . home J discipline; but either the deer or my story seemed to please him, and I not only escaped chiding, but had two pieces of pie for supper that night something unheard of in our domestic economy. New York Sun. American and German Ways. In Germany it may he said that the tendency is to make better workmen; in America and England the tendency is to make better men. The Anglo Saxon policy is to "cast the bantling on the rock," and let him work out his own salvation through temptation. In Germany the policy is quite the re verse; the workman is protected from disciplining temptation, and ruled in a thousand ways by the Government in stead of being allowed to rule him self. American discipline is from with in, German from without. The Ger man workman is without hope even in religion, for it is rare that a German workman is eyer seen in church after confirmation; he has before him no possible career in politics, nor any hope of becoming a Carnegie or a Hunting ton. Consequently he is without am bition to do his work faster or by bet ter methods; he is content to do what his father did w-tll0ut thinkingf the ang Government is making herculean efforts through its scores of technical and industrial schools-the best in the world-to stir him from his stolid and precedent-bound lethargy. than it is to install expensive machin ery.
