He, in company with another painter, wai it work on the outside ol a two-story bouse, when oneol the hooki by whioh the platform was suspended gave way, throwing both men to the ground. The fall did not injure tbem severely, but the large iron hook struok the young men in tbs faoe with the sharp point, nearly tearing one ol his eyes out and tarrying away a portion of tbs noss. Tbs injured man was knocked entirely senseless by tbe blow, and wai pioked up by hie companion apparently dead. Tbe woGsd mede by the hook was ■ cruel one, extending almoat entirely aoron tbe leoe and outting clear to the bone. The injared man was at once taken home, physicians called in and the wound at once dresssd. It is feared, however, that the eye will be destroyed. Tbe careless manner in whioh men trust their lives to a hook stuok in a shingle held by one little nail is amazing.

Thomae Gib.on Ha* a Hair Rais ing Adventure at th* H*ad or Cab la Can yon. San Bernardino Sun: Friday even ing juat before dusk, Thomas Gibson, wbo lives in Cajon paaa, caw aod par ticipated in a hunting episode which was tbe most exciting in his years of experience aa a nimrod in tbe San Ber nardino mountain!. He and bia dog overtook a lioness, tbere was a chase, a ahot of flue lead, a fight between tbe domestic animal and the queen ot the forest, a fall over tbe side of a cation, a crushing ot bonea and mangling ot flesh, and then the end. Gibson arrived here yesterday morning and told the story to a Sun reporter. He atarted out from Sugar Pine flat with a double-barreled shotgun, looking for small gams, and accompanied by bia dog, a crosa between a bound and a coach dog. He had crossed the divide, and about ten minutes before eundown was entering the bead of Cable canon, wben at the same moment he and bia dog aaw the lioness ahead of them on the trail. Instantly the dog atarted after her majesty and chased ber a abort dis tance down the canon, ahe taking to a short oak tree whicb stood less than 30 feet from tbe edge of a precipitous bluff. Gibaon gave ber the charge from one barrel, which waa loaded with bird shot, and before he could fire again the lion waa on the ground. Tbe dog made an attack and the next initant the animals disappeared over the precipice, fighting aa they went do wn. Tbe bluff ia 250 or 300 feet high, and ie naturally terraced at intervale of 50 or 6J feet. Before Gibson could reach the bluff, the dog aud the lion were at tbe bottom of tbe cation, apparently dead. The hunter made a detour and vat aa twilight waa cloaing in, reached the animala. He tbinka tbey must have struok the natural terracea in their fall, bounding from one above to the next below. Every bone in their bodiea seemed to have been broken, bnt they were both breathing wben ne reached tbem. He ended tbeir Bufferings witb bia shotgun. Tha only mark ol tb o fight whicb his dog ahowed was a slit acroaa the ear wbicb had cut it in two. By thia time twilight had faded into darkness, so Gibaon built a fire, re mained in tbe cation all night, and early in tbe morning atarted for San Bernardino. THE CROPS.
