A FOX THAT COST $5,000. tlanv the Lmv IlcKnrrin the Otvne mhlv ot WIIiI Ilcnntn Nnme Notccl rrecotlcnln. In the latter part of the last century foxcs were vcry nbundant on Long Island. A mnn named Post organlzed a fox hunt ono day, and with a com pany of inen witli dogs, startcd a fox, and all were soon in full pursuit, the fox of course running at the top of his speed. A schoolmaster named IMerson, re turning from liis dalJy toil, met the fox "heod and liead," and taw him run lnto a dry water hole. Taking a rail from a nelghboring fence he attacked tho fox, killed it and, throwing it over his shoulder, htarted for honie. Just at that monient Post, with his retinue of inen and dogs, rode up and demanded the anlmal, a demand that was promptly rcfused. "We were cliabing that fox and going to kill it," said Post. "1 chased that fox and did kill it," retortfd Pierson. ThreatB and argumcnts only made the determination of eaeh party stlll stronger, Post declaring he would have zthe fox, eost whnt it might, and PJerEon declarlng Jlp jyOiil'1 'eeP l'iat fx or Know tho reusou why.

The case waa f5romptly appealod and went through oourt after eourt, up to tho highest trlbunal of the state. The best eounsel were retalned 011 bqth sldes, and what with lawyers' fees, TravelTng expenses and costs of eourts, the expenditurea are said to have reached $5,000. In the coufl of Tast resort Phjrsoi won tho case, but h6 eourt was not unanimouB. "Wlld anlmals, said tlie decision, are the property of no man. They become the property of the flrst person who captures them and reijuces tliem to possesslon. If, after belng captured, they escape, they at once resume thelr orlginal condition and become the prop prty of the llrst one who again reducea 'thefo to possession. Thls case has olways been. ciUd as a precedent Blnee that time. A sports man shot a quail whieh fell to the ground wounded, but ran away. An other sporUman pursued and caught It, and tho eourts decidcd it was his by the same rule ns in the fox case. A hunter shot a wild goose. The blrd lcll lnto the water and swam away. A man having a boat pursued and cap tured it. The goose was clalined by him, and the eourts made his clalm good. A large whale was seen off the shore of Long Island alout 30 years ago. Beveral boats manned by eager whale men were soon in Mvift puMult, The whale was "Mruok" with harpoons. It was also "lonced," and the spurtlng of blood was surc uvidencc to whaleinen that the oreature was mortally wound ed. As nlght was comlng on and a hlgh wind blowlng, the whalemen cut loose. Three days later the dead whale drifted on shore many mlles dUtont, and was taken possession of by partles who discovered It. The whalemen who had watched the bench in expuctatlon of its drlftlng ashore at once clnlmed it as their property, and commenced a isult in the supreme eourt for its value, $3,000. The Jury, by dlrcction of the eourt, gave a vcrdlct for the defendant.

The Danithtcr of a Poor Laltorer Cn alUcd Guln Ltteru.rj' Kame. Thls glrl, hardly out of her teens, unknown, humble, virtuous, the mis treaB of a school af one of the far north ern Italian villages, whlch even tho wheels of a tram had not yet reached, wlthout any editorial flourish of trum peU, wlthout powerful patronage, without benevolcnt and lntcrested fricnda, with only a bundle of leavea Bown together in a white volume, has Bucceeded ln gaining a llterary triumph, not ln her own country aloue, but ln tho greatest part of Europe. In every corner of Italy, indeed, volces are raised ln wouder and praise at the hupreme power of tho poerns their strength and beauty that have had their bir th in the heart and braln of the schooimistress of Mottn-Viscontl. Here in tbis small market town, on the edge of tbeTlcino, are cxtenslve woods, known to the hunters from Milnn, to whieh Ada Negrl rcforted to hear the message of the wind n& lt slghed and sang through the branches of the trees. The poems in whlch she has Intcrpreted na ture in its ever-changing aspccts of glory and gloom, in whlch she has given a tongue to tjio wgcs and sorrows whlch are the portion of man, to Hie oppres sion of the rlch, to the hard lot of the poor, and those in whlch she has spok en of the beauty and tenderness of truo lovo, have ealled forth the most cnthu slastlc pralses from tho most distln guished crltics. In Engldnd her work may not be widely known except umong llterary men and I am not aware that her poems have ever been translated elther her flrst volume, "Fatallto," oh her more recent, colled "Tempeste," 4,000 coples of whlch were colled for before the twelve-month had cxplred. Ada Negrl Is the daughtcr of a poor laborer, ono who has worked In tho mincs, and her mother was a wcaver of wool, who, though of ten weary and al ways feeble, worked Incessantly ln a manufactory, bearlng up bravely agoinst ciroumstonces, because she waa worklng for her daughter, who wlshed to atudy. The poor toller ln the wool factory, gulded simply by moternal In stlnct a-nd by the judgnient of the mla tress of the osylum whero her little daughter was sent for two years, saw In her chlld a genlus and o courage far above the commou. She gave her the opportunlty of studylng In the nornial Bchool of Lodi, wlille she woreouther own exlstence ln tho wool factory to se oure for Ada a happy future. The lov Ing mother remalued ut her dolly toll with UiIb objeot, olternatlng her ardu ous work with enforced rest ln the wnrds of the hospltnl, where she was at one time laid up for 12 mouths amoug those who were received ln Its walls be cause threatcned with consumptlon. In a fow llnes ln her poem "Madre Operala" Ada Negrl Blngs of the sub llme sacrlftce of her unhappy mother who purchased with hunger, with cold, with lifo itself, a noble destlny for her chlld. Her daughtcr had tho means of Btudying, nnd tho poor wool wcaver took heart, though her limba were weary and sho was HUtTerlng from lll health. Her daughter studled and the moUier, worn out and exhausted, put into her work, ln the Imtnenslty of hor atTectlon, notno dropR of blood nnd swent that nourlshcd her dreani of for tuno and glory for her chlld, carelessof everythlng, content with anythlng, If only there should bo in the future a luinlnousdestlny for Ada and her brown heod yet covered with gold und laurel.
