'' Flagging Antelope. In the fall of 1881 I was riding down the Yellowstone river in com pany with my friends, Huffman and Conley, on our return from a hunting expedition to the Big Horn nuoun tains. While passing over a piece of high table land overlooking a portion of the valleys of the Yellowstone river and Big Porcupine creek, we met a couple of hunters, who told us that a large herd of buffalos were grazing on the Big Porcupine Creek, about fif teen miles from ust and knowing that antelope are nearly alwas found hang ing on the outskirts of every herd of buffaloes, we at once began to scan the country with our glasses In search of them. We were soon rewarded by seeing a number of small white specks that seemed to be moving on the dead grass away up the Porcupine. We rode toward them at a lively gait for perhaps a mile, and stopped to look again. From this point we could easily identify them, although they still seemed to be aboat the size of jack-rabbits. We again put spurs to our horses and rode rapllly to within a mile of them, when we picketed our animals in a low swale, took out our "antelope finag"- a liece of scarlet colored calico about half a yard square- -attached it to the end of my wiping stick and were ready to inter view the antelopes. I crawled to the top of a ridge within plain view of the game and plantel the flag, The breeze spread it out, kept it fluttering, and it soon attracted their attention. This bit of colored flag excited their curiosity to a degree that rendered them restive, anxious, uneasy, and they seemed at once to bh siezed with an insatiable desire to find out what it n as. Huff man went to the top of another ridge to the right mid some distance in ad vance, and Conly crawled into a hol low on the left, so that we three formed a half-circle, into which we intended, if possible, to decoy the game. When they first discovered our flag they moved rapidly toward it, some timos breaking into a trot. But when they had covered about half the dis tance between us and their starting point they behogan to grow suspicious. and stopped. They circled around, turned back, and walked a few steps, then paused nuld. looked back ait the. to them, mysterious apparition. But they could not resist its magic infln ence. Again they turned and crane toward us, stopped and gazed curi ously at it. The old buck that led the herd stamped impatiently, as if annoyed at his inability to solve the mystery. TLoy walked cautiously to ward is again down an incline into at valley which took them out of sight ii the 'iag. This, of course, rendered them more impatient, and when they reached the top of the next ridge they were run ning. Dut as soon as the leader caught sight of the flag again he stop pod, as did the others in turn when they came in sight of it. They were not more than one hundredt yardk from me, and wore still nearer to my friends. There were seven in the band--two bucks, three does, and two kids. Their position was everything we could wish, and thongh we might possibly have brought them a few yards nearer, there was a possibility of their scenting us even lacros the the wind, which, of course, we had arranged to have in our favor, and I decided that rather than run the risk of this and the consequent stalpede, I would open on themn whore they wore. It had been arranged that I was to begin the ontertailllnnent, and drawing a fine bead on the breast of the old buck, I pulled. Hufntaiul's and Conloy's rifles paid their complli monts to the pretty visitors at almost the same instant, andi for about thirty seconds thereafter we fainned them about as vigorously a.s ever Ia hrl wasi famned under similar cireumstances. The air was full of leaden missiles, and the dry dust raised under and around the fleeing quarry. Clouds iof smoke hung over us, and the distant hills echoed the music of our artillery until the last white rump disappeared among the cottonwoods on the river bank. When the smoke of the battle cleared away andlt we looked over the field we found that we hiad not burned our powder in vain. Five of the lit tli fellows, two bucks and three does, had fallen victims to their curiosity. The two fawns had. strangely enough, escaped, probably because they, bo ing so much smaller than their pur outs, wore less exposud.- G(. O. Shields in Harpler's Magazineo, On the Plhiadelll0ia l'lan. There are a great linany young men in Now York who managoto live well, enjoy frequent excursions, and keep well in the amusement swing by con du-ting all of their onttrrtai nintts on whivit is ciommonly kInown ss the Phil adelphia plan. They are well-dressed. good-natured, and jolly-looking men who are seen together in a box at the theatre, diuing at a good restaurant, going to the races on a coach, or run ning off for two or three days' fishing on a yacht. Their bills are paid un obtrusively and quietly, but when the crowd in alone a prompt settlement is had, and each man pays his own ahare. When a number of men "whack up" for a dinner it reduces the cost ve-ry much. They can eat a much bet ter dinner, have more wine and a greater variety than when dining alone, and for less.money. As a rule, the young men who go about town habitually are not over-burdened with funds, and if any one of them at tenmpted to entertain all his friends he wouldl find it ia .erlous drain on his purge. That is why the Ph'iladelphia plan is resorted to. During the races at Jerome park the hotel conches are continually employed by crowds of men who go on this prinlciplh. The coaches have moveable seats which c:ln be arranged on top so that they look like veritable coaching-club drags and wllhen drawn by four splanking ays tilhely make quite a presentable appea'lrnce. Wt'itih acrowd of ten or fifteen nurn aboard, such a coach usu lily forms a very livoly sort of pro cession. The young lnen usually chipl ini from $3 to $1(0 a piece and miake the solid ium with which they buy a horns -( i" a winner and a horse for ia place ill every race. This keeps them intereiste(d all through the day. and when they go home they divide the winnings if there any. In the saine way they arrange yacht ing trips auid excursions to the coun try. It maly not be a particularly aris tocratic mol(de of lrocedure, but itcer tailily is munch fairer to all concerned thani the indiscriuminate habit of treat ingl by which the poorest man in the crowd is usually impoverished - through the proverbial geiwrosity of poor ltn alid the mean mnl l has no cnd of flln without )paying for it.

They do sany that sales-people in shoe stores have a unique way of do ceiving lady customers. Their meth od is to lay aside a pair of shoes to which some trivial objection has beon made, and bring forth others, which are tried on without success. Then the sales-person suddenly remembers that a few hours previous there ar rived a case of sample shoes which have not yet been put upon the mar ket. After a few moments spent in another part of the establishment the attendant comes forth with the first pair of shoes condemned, done up in an elegant box, which is unwrapped with due ceremony, and the shoes hold up before the customer's eyes in a way that is both tempting and convincing. "That is a new style," says the sales person, "and one that will become popular." "Have none of them been sold yett" asks the customer. "No, madam; let noe try this one on you. Ah, that's your fit, and it gives your foot an uncommonly pretty look!" Nine times out of ten the trick does the work, and the customer makes the purchase, all unconscious that she has a shoe which has been in the store probably for months, and to which she took exceptions but a short time before. It may be very wicked to deceive the Inladies in this kind of a style. but the selolr eases his con science by declaring that it is a lde ciption which has done no harm while it aided him to make a sale. --Plhila dolphia Bulletin: The Right Khnd. A newspaper proprietor advertised for an advertisement canvasser, and his test of their fitness, as they up plied, was to tell them to get out of the office that instant or he would kick them out. Several timid young mon turned tail and left him in dis gust, but one, more brazen-faced than the rest, nothing daunted by the throat, coolly sat down and said ho would not go until his testimonials had Ioeen read. o hlie locked the door, put the key in his Iocket, and handed in his papers. "Ah," said the adver tiser, "you'll do, I can sooee. I don't want testimonials; your style is 'nolugh for me. No one will over suc ced"as nll advertisement canvasser who will be influenced by a threat to be kicked out of any office." A Girl Plickpocket.

That was something like two years ago. Oflicer Crowley had arrested Minnie on somo criminnl chargo, and was convIying her to the station, when Abe Kelly, a tough thief, shot the policoman in an attempt to rescue the girl. The officer died and Kelly got five yeours at Joliet." "What is the girl's principal modle of robbing men ?" 'She has It great faculty of playing the illnoent school girl. She is a good looker, you know, and dresses well. She is shy anrd modest in de portment when on the watch for a vie. tim, and her girlish face gives her an appIearanee of maidenly ilnocenlce.

Wlheni the man coniles to his snlllse his plocketbolIok is gone, his watch is gone, and the girl is goine." SaUrIhiil AId to Attain tihe IHeautilfl. ''The Ionipetitioln hotwenl dludes in the nmatter of smaill feet has Il collll so intense that Ihey are visitinig the consulting rooms of iprriiniient sur gooirs and asking to have their big toes amlpututed, so that they many hii able to get into hoots of the smallest conllpass possible. Professor Williiaii H. annconst, of the ,Jefferson Meili'ial college, has, during the past month, been called upon by three men and one woman, all of them making the singular request. In every instance he refused to perform the operation, and the would-be patients went away disgusted. The idea of the surgeon's knife aid ing them in their efforts to attain the beautiful seems to have occurred to hundreds of people simultaneously, like an epidemic. "I can't account for this remarka ble desire for being mutilated for the sake of appearance," said Dr. Pan coast to a Press reporter, "but I can any that it has, like all fashionable crazes, sprung up in a very short time. It must be duo to the pointed shoes. By and by the pointed shoes will go out, and then these people who are having their big toes sliced off will be sorry." "'Would the slicing off of his big too hurt a dude o" asked the ieporter. "Not materially," answered the phy sician. "In fact, people whose toes have had to be amputated through disease seem to get along all right. I have had lots of patients whose toes have been removed, and they have al ways beetn consoled when told of the dainty little boots they will he able to weaonr And I really don't think they miss the toes. It is a curious fact that most of the applicarts are men. Popular prejudice would at once con elude that none but a woman could be so vain. One of my visitants. was a farmnner, though what on earth ho wanted with small feet I can't ima gino. "It is a common thiing for surgeons to have patients who want meeting eyebrows eradicated, Professor Pan coast continued. "In these cases we remove the hair by the roots and then apply electricity, which gives the per son a sharp, stinging pain. After this treatment the undesirable eye brows never retuan. Ladies who aret so unfortunate to have mustaches are treated in the same way, but it is so painful that they can only have half a mustache removed in a day. They go away looking very funny. It is getting quite common to do away with detfects in the ear or nose. All theso items are part of a physician's regular routine; that is, all excepting the big toe treatment, which I would never perform for any one. Snered ('attle in Texas. John O'Neil, a cnttle raiser of life long experience in Victoria county, Texas, called on the Stock Grower this week and a conversation with hint proved most interesting. Mr. O'Neil is one of the very ofew breeders in this country, of ]rahnma or sacred cattle of the East Indies. It would at first seem farcical to spoank of raising "mno nagerio steel<," but Mr. O'Neil will soon be able to prove to stockmen of the west that this strain will show as good qualities as the much talked of Herefords and Durhanms. The first sacred cattle brought to America con sisted of two 1,ts, one of which went to Georgia and the other to Louisi ant. In 1879 Mr. O'Neil noticed cows near his hoom which wore a cross bo twoeu the t rahmaus and native and were the property of a neighbor. The winter and spring of '79 wero excep tionally hard on cattle and the "die ofl" was sonmething tremendous. Our ohserving friend saw in the spring that the Brahmba cows wero in excel lent condition, and after solro experi monts he concluded that the breed would be a good one to cross with na tive rtock. Mr. O'Neil secured a hull aold two cows, thoroughbreds, from the Louiisiana herd, but afterwards in crtised the unImbIer from Georgia. The result of the cross is very satis factory. '1'(, ]rahlna is of good size, fine beef qualities and possesses the Itst rustling qualities of any brteed. Mr. O'Neil obtains the bost results from It cross of "the sacred cattle with prneo Dur'hans, and the malo stock from this cross ho runs with his na tives. There is a hheavy demand in Texas for the ]Brahmntas, as they are called, but it is utterly impossible to supply it. Mr. O'Neil intends to stock a ranch in this territory, whoa our Now Mexico cattle owners will have an opportunity of seeing the sacrod cattle.
