Ihe rirn Ig More EXPENsive than .sealskin. Howtho Animals Are Killed Along a Short Stretch of Our Pacific Coast—Derricks Needed by the Hunters. Perhaps few persons are aware that the moat exj;rasivc fur in the market i, that of the sea offer, and that a good deal of 1 flora the Pacific coast of the ‘^Washington. The territory in which they arc taken is very limited. beiDo only from Damon's Point, on the portVra cntrapcc to Gray's Harbor, up WmTl^ Grecnvillc, a distance of about Unlike that of the seal, the fur of the sea otter requires no plucking of hair or colonng—m fact, the most valuable skins ve those which are speckled through with asiiverhipperl hair, the addition of wSL.ha7?u 'i,:!g 25 t0 50 rer wnt. to the pnee of the skm. . The hunters build for themselves dor tW ! 1 ,forty leet hlSh- ty taking three slim poles or pieces of timber, each about forty feet in length, and bolting them securely together at one end for the top, then spread them about twenty-five eet. apart at the bottom, givin-f the ap pearance ot a huge tripod. These are set on the ocean beach, about midwav be tween high and low tides, the foot of the poles being imbedded in the sand from two to three feet. The structure is then thoroughly braced and a ladder built to •he top by nailing pieces at convenient instances crosswise on the inland. About eighteen inches below the top of the tripod cross timbers arc secured to the legs, and u|ion these cross timbers a floor from four to live feet square is laid and on the oceanward and two adjoining sides walls o*o built up from three and a half to four feet in height. On the land . side.a door is constructed to allow the hunter .easy ingress and egress to and from his “crow’s nest.” On the top of the tripod, which extends about eighteen inches above the floor, a seat is con »u., lUf lnsxuc 01 Iftfc wall a row of shelving is placed. At low tide, when the wind is propi tious, the hunter hies himself to hi" crow’s B,.‘t, aimed with a good pair of glasses, a Sharp’s rifle, a lunch and a little some thing to keep himself warm, uud for six long hours he scans the line of the ocean just outside of the breakers, where lie most expects his game to appear. When the tide first begins to flood his name is about 600 yards, but ns it runs in the range is shortentd to 200 or 300 yards. Kven at these latter distances it requites close calculation to know just how to shoot to overcome the rise and fell of the ocean sw ell and the effect of the wind upon the bullets. It is said that not one out of 100 shots of the best marksmen is effective. When the tide is full the derrick stands in the midst of the breakers, and a land lubber like my self feels a little squeamish, looking down from the dizzy heights on the roll ing waters below. rite shooting is generally done on a flood tide, so the animal when killed will wash ashore, and even then it is some times three or four days alter one is killed before it is beached. I ndoubt edly many others are killed and never do come ashore. Kucii hunter marks hi-, bull, ts w ith a mark known'to the other hunters, and w.heu an otter is found on the beach, the first, duty ol tin: finder is to look for the bullet and ascertain who is th« rightful owner, for this sign is respected among >be hunters as sacredly as marks and brands are among stockmen. Wh< u an otter comes ashore with no builtt on him, as frequently occurs, the bullet having gone clean through th. body, au.J co uotiei having been given, it is re gsrded as a. " slick-car" in stockmen’s parlance, and belongs to the finder. Sometimes an otter, on receiving a death shot, sinks,- but the huutcr gener ally knows w hen he has hit hia mark. By observing the water with his glasses, he can discern, even at the greater dis tances which they shoot, the coloring of rlic water from the blood of the animal; and, if he dots not ei.rne ashore on that 1 tide, ngt-iee is at once given to the other ' hunters, w ho are then on the alert to find him' But I opine Unit, bcuch combers, in flic shaje of stealthy,Indians, get away with many an otter killed by the while hmfters. I liave had occasion many times to pass along the beach at daylight during the hnuting season, but 1 always found the flat tracks of the siwnsh just ahead of me, printed there since last high tide. h'1,1. Indians lmnl the se.i otter in canoes, going out and coming in through the surf. Sometimes they go 15 or JO miles to sea and stay out several days. But when they hnnt along within a mile or two pi the shore, then there is blood on the face of the moon, and the white hunter “waxeth wroth,” for the Indian cenres away'his game. When taken, the otter Is skinned whole, as it were, by cut ting across the haunches and stripping the skin down the body and over the head. The skin is then turned, the fur in, and a board shoved through it. It is then tightened by driving a wedge-shaped piece down on one side between the board and the skin, and another con trarywiso on the other. All the grease is then carefully removed, and the skin is dried and laid awny ready for the Tfl^rkct1* ■ An average skin is about five feet Iona bv twelve inches wide, double, or when rut twenty-four inches wide, and in tb< hunter's hands, is valued at from *90 tc gtoO • but these prices leave a handsomf margin to the fur men who handle therm In Russia an overcoat made same otter skins brings from *1,090 t< $Sfi00, while in China even more if from May to October, and so scarce if this game becoming, that four a season u rrAtdercd doing well by any hunter.

A plucky fo.ir-year-old baby lives in Oskaloosa, Iowa. It Is the child of Mrs. Wilson, and while playing about tin' mouth of a. deep well, covered bv loose boards, fell in. The well is thirty feet deep and contained ten feet of water at the time. The mother saw the child fall and, frantically grabbing a clothes line, lowered it. in o the well. The child grasped the line, but of course could not hold on tight enough to be drawn out, su the mqther tied her end above. “Mill pet hold on tight till mamma runs for papa:” tremblingly cried the mother to the little one. “Ess,” came a brave little sob from below. The mother hurried away and soon re turned with the father and several other men who, after much difficulty, rescued the child from its chilly bath. The little one was almost unconscious from cold when taken out, but had bravely clung to the clothes-line all the time, holding its head above water. The happy mother hugged her rescued one and wept for joy. while the assembled crowd threw up • their hats aud cheered in acknowl edgement of the baby’s grit.
