7 Sknnk and Rattlcsnake. Whlle eampcd over on Oak Creek, I was an eye witncss to one of the ruost novel of combat". At noou one day na 1 was corolng down froni the minu for dinner, I spied a skunk shifting itself about in a strange ruanner. Thinking he was perforniinp; some acts that. were unusual and not becoiuing to one of his race, I satdown; and wilh rny power ful niHrine glnss I soon found the reason. Before the skunk Upon the grouml lay a huge rattlesnake the coilcd up for busiuesB, his tnassive flat head prescnting a moBt savage aspect. .Now and then raisiug his head as the skunk would come within rcacfi, he Btruck it ngain and again. Tne skunk, aB if anxious to continue the duel, would pounce upon the back of the snake until driven off by the pow erful swaying to and fro of its body. This was repeutcd again and again, un til flnally with one heroic spring thc skunk landed upon the snake, and in a twinkling of au eye, almost, had bittcn the head from the body, save a shred of skin which held togelher. 13eing satistied wilh the result, I hastily picked up a rock, and throwing it at the skunk routed him, leaving me in full pOBsession of the Qeld. On examina tion, I found the hide of the rattle snake untnjured aave where the skunk had given it its death cut in the neck. The satne evening and for six cousec utive evenings I saw the skunk, and on the Beventh evening shot it, after it had Bcampered around for that length of titne. This satislled me that rattle snake bites do not matacially ruiard the progressive life of a " pole-cat," to say nothing of proving fatal thereto. The anake was three feet, six inches in length, with nine rall.ee. The snake's hide I kept until recently, wore it out as a hat-band. The rattles I still have. The ekunk is the only animal (to my knowledge) that will not succumb to the deadly bite of the " rattler," unless medical aid is invoked. Forest and Stream. Has Henciied thc Maximiim. Up to the preseut yearthe wonderful growth of the Grand Army of the Re pttblio organization has gone on, defy ing the lapse of time and the dropping off of the veterans by dcatb. It will always be a great record in its history that not until a quarter of a century after its foundation was its turning point reached, and the war had already been ended twenty-seven years. But during the twelve months last reported upon there was a net loss in mernber ship of 1,708, and although this was explained by a previous improper addi tlon of certain names, the correction of which would leave a real gain of about 1,200, yet there was a general look in the tigures that caused the oflicial sug gestion just quoted. We may safely conclude, therefore, that this remark able organization has at last about reached its maxinium of membership. The aggregate of 407,781 in good stand ing is not likely hereafter to be sur passed; and when, after this climax has been sustained for a little time, the downward movement conies, the fall, as the adjutant-general says, will be rapid. The chances are, however, that the pathos of its decline may lay hold of popular 8ympathy not less than the spleudor of its rise. When the rapidly dwindling membership of the veterans tells its story, when the Grand Army as an organization is uo longer much of a power in politics, either to be courted or feared, the hearts of the people are likely to go out still more toward it, so that it can count on popular enlhusiasm at its annual reunions for many years to come. New York Sun. Could Tell by the Clieer. " I learned during the civil war to tell wbat section of the country a rei ment was from by hearing it cheer" said Colonel Sol Hilligoss, now a guest of the Southern. " Of course, it waa easy enough to distinguish the wild ' rebel yell ' from the deep-toned cheer of the northern regions, but each of these had well-defined ,variations. Draw a line from Uoston to San Fran cisco, from that city through St. Louis to Richmond, Va., and from the latter city to New Orleans, and you run the whole gamut of the American battle cry, from the deep basg of the far North to the shrill treble of the ex treme South. The war-cry of the West is a eompromise between the deep chested Yankee cheer and the thrilling rebel yell. It more uearly resembles the war-whoop of the Sioux than any thing else 1 can think of, and is appall ing in its iutensity and ferocity. The cheer of a Maine regiment makes you think of the old Norse sea kings. It rolls and reverberates like a salvo of artillery. A Virginia regiment does not cheer; it does not shriek. Its war cry is the short, sharp, terrifying growl of the bulldog before he closes his iron jaws on the throat of au enemy. The yell of a Louisiaua regi ment 8trikes tbe ear like the scream of a panther or the shriek of a shell; but wueu au lowa or Micnigan regiment gives tongue you think that the portals of hell have been forced that Lucifer and all his attendant horrors are loose upon the land. It is the incarnation ot ferocity, the apotheosis of terror." St. Louis Globe-Vemocrat. $bur;itional. Trketop: Wot does it cost to squint through yer telescope?

Near the graveyard where Liucoln's falher aud aiepmother reat, seveu miles eouth of Charleston, 111., in a place then known as Goose Nest, the Lin colns made tbeir final settlement on rernoving from Indiana. Here Abra ham Lincoln assiated his father in ' getting seltled," as they called it. He hulped him build a log cabin and cleared tor him a patch of ground, and when he saw him " under headway" in the new couutry, bade him good-by and started uortb afoot. He found employment not far from Spriuglield, III., where the aetive part of his early life was spent. Though he did not linger long in Goose Nest cabin, he was there long enough to stamp his in dividuality ou every heart for miles around, and many are tbe stories told of his sojourn among these people. It was my lot to be born and reared a few miles lrom the early home of the Lin colns, and the iucidt-nts I shall relate were picked up in conversatiou with the old settlers about our neighbor hood, all of whom kuew Lincoln well. I was shown a bridge he helped to build, aud mauy other relics of his boy hoou days. One very old man told me that he once rode up to Tuumas Lm coln's cabin aud iuquired if he could speud tbe nigbt there. He was in lormed that the house afforded only two beds, aud one of those belonged to a son who was then athome; but if he could get the consent of this boy to take him in as a bedfellow he could stay. The slranger dismounted, aud soon fouud the six-foot boy in the back yard lying on a board reading. The boy conseuted, and the man slept with him tbal night. The boy was Abraham Lincoln, aud the other never lires of telling how he spent the night with tbe future presideut. Correspotidence of the Century. One Way to Spoil a Roy. No parent who has a sincere regard for the welfare of his son will permit him to start out as an amateur printer. Amateurs never amount to much in anytbing, but, owiug to the peculiar character of the priutiug business, not one boy in a hunured who begins as an amateur printer ever becomes a 'ii.-i-class workmau. On lirst sigbl priuting Beems so easy that almost every bov iruagines he can rnaster the whole of u in a few months. After he begins and gets along to where he can deliver work that is a trifle more readable than "copy"and is not all offset, his appe tite is whetted by the money he has re ceived for it from good-natured or cbar-itably-disposcd frieuds, and he imagiues that all he ueeds ln order to make a large fortune very quickly is a larger and more expensive outtit. So tbe kind parent puts his hand iuto his oocket, or his name upon a note, and Young America has his heart's desire. What then? Failure in almost every case; and not only failure, but very often a life practically tbrowu away, for the boy who has never been taught, and has prematurely beeu allowed to be his own master, gets to be iucapable of learning or doing anytbing thor oughly. ou might jnst as well expect au old dog to learn. new tricks at an amateur printer to learn to be a lirst class workmau. 1'ress and Type. He Forirot His Teeth. A tall middle-aged man, with bollow cheekB, mouuted a stool iu a dowu-towu restauraut yesterday afteruoon and nuid to the black-eyed waiter girl who had come to serve him : " Uring me a piece of broiled chicken dark tueat." The order was filled, and as the customer took up his knite and fork to carve off a mnuthful of thf succulent remnant of the bird, suddeuly paused in his opcrations, and, calliny; the girl tohini, whispered something in her ear. The plate of broiled chicken was taken away, and when the girl returned she brouht a bowl of custard. After he had flnished, and his check had been rung in, an inquisitive gentlenian, who had been the witness to the somewhat unusual proci'cding, said to tho waiter girl: "Was that piece of chicken a little off?" " No, sir; it was sweet as honey." " What was the trouble, thcu?" " He told me that he had lcft his falso teeth on his desk in his office, and that tbe chicken would be too se vere a task for him." liostan Herald. Old-Tlme Funcrals. To one who passes along the streets of Leadville now there is just ono feature in particular whloh servcs as a mark of comparison of tho Leadville of today with tho minlaf INUnp of thirteen years ago. Leadville now is respoctablo, staid and as solemn as a inining city can le, but it um't the solemnity in the abstract which strikes one now. It is a specific solemnity which concerns itself with funerals. To one who has lived in the past, when every funeral was an occasion for as much celebration as a circus, the qniet and sedate cortego inoving along Chest nut street todny is something not to be considered. It is too gloomy to suit the old timer; but, alas! tho old timer is no more. In 1879 tho town was wild. Every body carried a "gnn" not in his pocket, mind you, only the natnral born fool did, and he rarely lived to repent of it. Tbe weapon was stuck in his belt rigbt handy for ImnRdlAte action. As a con sequence rarely a day passed without a Tlolent death. Added to this the work of pneuinonia kept the gravedigger over in the valley at work night and day. This may sound like exaggeration, but it isu't. The twinkling lights in the valley presented a grewsome appearance at night and more so when their purpose was known. They lit thc gravedigge s at work. Pneumonia was a fearful encmy. Men were strong, fearless, healthy in the morning, and when even ing came with it was tho physician and the next day the nndertaker. No ac comniodations fit to l)e called such wer') obtainable, and men after days of hard work in the niines were obliged to sleep in that frosted atmosphere wherever they could. Rev. T. J. Mackey was the most pop ular clergyman in town at that time. He was loved by the good people and respected, almost venerated, by the gamblers and the miners, which doesn't imply that miners were not in them selves reputahle people. Whenever a miner or a sporting man or woman died it was Parsou Mackey who was called m. There was one day in particular when the parson held four funerals, and that was the record. Four was frp quently equaled, but it stood as the top notch for one clergyman. Mr, Mackey, who was an Episcopal clergyman, held services in tbe Tabor opera house. Fifty dollars a day was the rent, aud the collection never fell short. It was necessary to close the doors then long before tbe time for the beginning of the service to keep back tho crowds. This four funeral day spoken of was the day on which J. B. Omohundro, known all over the world as "Texas Jack," was buried. Leadville never did funerals by halves. A braafl band was a regulur thing. No funeral was held without one. The bund attending upon Jack was made up of fifty pieoes, being a oombination of several. Fuy Templeton's opera coiu pany was playlng an engagement in Leadville then, and Fay agreed to sup pl y her company to act as choir. The coftin was set upon the stage loaded with fiowers, and flowers were rarer than mines iu Leadville, and Rev. Mackey appeared in his regimentals aa Ohaplain Of the Tabor Light Guards to preaoh tbe funeral sennon. As he pro ceeded, whenever he made an illusion to any good quality in Jack the OOUgre gation applauded as vociferously as though they were approving a fiiiH featuro of a play. There was no dis order these people meant it all. They wept at the preacher's words andstami ed their feet in approval of his hope for Jack's chunces over there. Before the services Mr. Mackey had been waited upon by the Tabor Light Guards. They recited to him the fact that all the senior offlcers but tho ohap lain were absent from the city, and told him that as he was ranking officer of the day he miist don his regimentals and lead the company. At first he de murred vigorously, but fiually, equipped with bluo and gold and a sword that knew not its place and the propriety of keeping it, he marched upon the stage to help Jack along. When the service" were over he fouud they had provided a horse for him to lead the column. The preacher wasn't the moat remark able horsemau in the world, but he was game, and he mounted and started away. Directly the band struck up tho "Dead March in Saul" the preacher and his steed became almost as prominent as tho corpse or they would have been elsewhere than in Leadville. Here everything went. The dominie waltzed to the graveyard on his tiery charger actually waltzed, but nobody noticed that. That was a regular thing, or at least not a strikiug iuuovation. At Oinohtinilro's funeral, as at all funerals in Leadville, work of all kinds was roapended Men and women thronged npon tho sidewalks paoked them. One could really have walked on tho heads of tho people and nobod would have noticed it. In those days tha nndertaker took great prldain tiie tnrningout. RJding in the oarriage with tho preacher he woihd look back lov ingly and ajri "Ah, HOW, this is a fiineral that is a funeral. Thil is something like. Look at tho crowds, parson, and we've got Beven moro pieoM ln thc band than n tended the Bwede I lutt McCloskey bnried yesterday." Omahu World-Henrfd.

A friend of the writer dreamed that he went from New York to HjstoD by stearaer, spent several days with an ac quaintance, and on the return voyage, a gale arising, the seas broke over tlie vessel and drenched him with epray. He woke to tiud his wife playfully sprinkliug water in his face. He had di zed in his chair for less than live minutes. A comical story is told of a naval surgeon in whom drcams of any character could be produccd by siniply whispering in his ear during sleep. He could ba made to go through the whole ordeal of a quarrel, a chal lenge and a dueJ, the pistol being dis charged by him at the given signal with as much accuracy as to time as if he were wide awake. Finding him asleep one day in a haramock on deck, oue of the oflicers whispered in his ear ihat he had fallen overboard, and to swini for his life, as a shark was after him. The fact that it was principally for the mariues did not detract a whit from the eujoyment with which thev wituessed his frog-like contortions. On another occasion they told him a vessel had been engaged, that the decks were being swept by musketry flre aud tbe men lalliug like leaves around him. He became white as a sheet and mani fested the liveliest symptoms of fear. After a while they all began to groan iu iuntation of tbe wounded, and upon one of them shouting, " Down goes Hilly McL'ue " (the surgeon's assistant) the poor fellow jumped up with colu perspiratiou standing like beads on bis forehead aud broke for the cabin ou a run. Strange to say, however, he had afterward not the slightest remeni brance of the dream. Philadelphia Times. A Rlue Law Sahhath.

This was followed by Sunday-tchool, where we recited our lessous correctly or suf fered severe consequences. After a cold lunch at home, for nothing was cooked on Sunday, we attended church again from two until four p. U. The interval between this time and seven o'clock prayer-meeting was occupied with religious reading or rertection, no frivolous games or diversions being permitted on this solemn day. As a special dispensalion, we were given hot tea for supper. l'rayer-meeting was out at nine o'clock, and from that hour until bed-time we sat quietly at home reading such thrilling and interesting works, eepeclally to children, as Bax ter's 'Saints' Uest ' and Fox's 'Book of Martyrs.'
