It says that antelope are more numerous this fall than ever before known along the Missouri di vision of the Northern Pacific. Herds of from 50 to 150 are seen daily along the track in the Curlew valley and in the vicinity of Knife river and other points west from there. On Monday Captain Wrenshall, Superintendent Green and Road master Ray. in the special car Crow Wing, attached to freight train No. 15. witnessed a nov el and successful mode of hunting an telope. As the train pulled into South Hear«, four antelope surrounded and corralled by bears in a small valley near the track were discovered. The engineer slowed up the train a little and Capt Wrenshall got out his Win chester and took a shot at one of the bears. The motion of the train mar red his aim and the bullet missed its mark. And luckily so, for that in stant up rose the supposed bear, and shaking off a blanket revealed an In dian. The other bears showed up in like manlier. The Indians, by getting upon all fours and fixing up their brown blankets into a resemblance of ears, nose, tail and legs, made them selves a close conterfeit of cinnamon bears, which struck panic into the hearts of the foolish antelope and placed them in such position that they were about to fall an easy prey tn their real assailants—the Indians. Having discovered his mistake Capt. Wrenshall began shooting at the an telope and killed several. An ambitious boy of Brighton, Mass., went into a pasture and tried to imitate Buffalo Bill by lassoing a cow. One of the boys tied a rope to bis waist and then threw the loop over the cow's horns. The cow became infuriated and ran over fen ces and stone walls, dragging the lad af ter her. Fortunately the rope broke, and he was released from his perilous position. Taken up insensible, lie was found to .have several ribs broken and to l>e fataliy injured.
