SHOOTING WITH FERRETS.
TRAINING THEM TO DRIVE RAB
v BITS FROM THEIR HOLES.
Points About Muzzling and Working
the Creatures and Choosing the
Ground to he Covered.
i\ LTHOUGH there are a. goodly
/\ number of hunters who think
\ the cream of sport does not
(J arrive until the snow is on
the ground, they can get after tlie rab
bit, and by the aid of the ferret, drive
him forth to get a good running shot
without all the tiresome tramping,
along the scent of a rabbit in search
of food, often to get no nearer to the
quarry than several hundred yards.
Truly the ferreter has the best of it
when he knows his business and has n
good ferret that knows Ills equally
well. The great trouble is that so few
of our ferrets do know their business,
or, to use a common phrase, "one end
of it." The fault of this lies in the
owner of the ferret, and is easily reme
died, for there is no animal more
easily trained, or more useful when
trained, than the well-bred ferret. I
was talking to a man the other day
who breeds ferrets and makes quite a
business of it, keeping them on a
farm, and having them divided off in
yards and hutches, just as if they were
prize rabbits. I wanted to buy a
couple of young buck ferrets for the
coming season, and asked him if he
had any bred from parents that had
been properly trained? He replied:
"When I first commenced this busi- !
ness I had ferrets on hand that were j
trained like bird dogs, and, of course, j
1 valued them accordingly. Do you
think there was any demand for them? I
Well, there was not, and when I asked
sls or S2O for a perfectly trained fer
ret people thought I was crazy. So I [
gave it up, and now have neither |
trained ferrets nor ferrets reared and I
bred from trained stock. It does not
pay."
I was surprised at this, and picked '
ont a pair to do my own training, I
ready for the first tracking snow. As
from this it would appear that a great j
many people who use these animals do I
not understand the advantage to be
gained from a trained one, I may as
well make it plain before I go any
further. I think all will allow that
there are fow things more annoying to
the hunter than to have the ferret
"lie up" when put into a hole, result
ing in the loss of sport while you wait I
his pleasure about coming out, or if he
is left, the loss of the ferret, value, I
say, $lO. That is only the first evil,
the others are when he will not work j
at all, refusing persistently to go into j
an earth, or when he enters, and finds 1
a rabbit, he will kill and eat it instead
of dragging it out, and has no idea of i
answering the voice or call of his mas
ter. In Germany, France and Eng
land the ferret is taught all of this,
and there is, with few exceptions, no
bother and no delay to sport.
Obtain a young animal, and see that
ho is hoalthy, has clean feet, with no
scabs on them or any sign of there
having been any, for this is a sign of
"hutch rot" and will make the little
fellow sensitive to hard weather, and
apt to shirk. Take him home and have
for his home a moderately warm, dry,
clean hutch, and mind that it is kept |
so. This is the most important item
of them all. Then commence the
training process, which is done!
through the medium of food. When
you go to bed feed him, make a curi
ous squeaking sound like a rat squeal
ing, produced by pressing the tongue
against the side of the teeth and
strongly sucking the air through the
interstices. Any boy will give you u
lesson. Do this whenever he is fed,
so as to impress upon the mind that !
the sound is connected with food, and I
half the training is done. Then begin
to handle him. Make up your mind I
to the fact that when you put your
hand down he will think it is some- !
thing to eat, and will raise up to j
"nose" it, and that if you draw the
hand away in a sudilen manner ho will
be quicker than you, and will seize it,
giving you a pretty bad bito; but that j
if you keep the baud moving steadily I
and fairly dowu, in a fearless manner, [
the ferret will find out his mistake
ami not bite. This is one of the hard- I
est lessons the trainer has to loam, an J
they are bloodthirsty looking little j
cattle, and it requires some courage to j
do this the first time or two. Having j
overcome this difficulty, handle the j
ferret nt all times and all seasons. !
You cannot overdo it, and after R time j
you will take quite a fancy to the lit
tle thing. I never carry a ferret hag,
bnt carry them loose in my pocket,
which is fitted with a flap and button.
Having progressed so far, take the \
ferret out iu the opeD, and take him
hungry, so that wliui you make the j
call he will be keen to come to you, j
when he must be rewarded with a |
piece of meat or liver. If he does this !
well, advance him to the hedgerow or I
brush, and get him so that he will I
come to you whenever you make the ■
call.
When the hunting commences, be
careful anil have the ferrets well fell
the night previous, but not the morn
ing you go out, unless it is very cold,
when a very little milk may be given.
This will insure better work. Arriving
at the earth, either located before
hand, or by the hound dog, take the
ferret and place him in the entrance;
if it be tenanted he will immediately
go down, if not he will go in a little
way auil come out. Then pick him
up and try elsewhero. If he stays in,
an ear placed to the ground will locate
any disturbance, anil toll you if the
rabbit is pinned. If there is no bolt
in a reasonable time, and the ferret
remains in the earth, stoop down anil
make the feed-call, and if properly
trained the ferret will come to yon,
and his jaws will tell yon il he has
| touud and killed a rabbit, by the
blood on them. Always reward him
with meat or liver until he is an old
hand at the business. You will then
have a ferret that will be the envy of
the neighborhood. Sometimes the
best animals will take a fit and "lay
up,"that is to say, they will refuse to
come out, and in such a case the best
way is to make a nest of grass or leaves
at one end, and bank both ends up
with a sod of grass. The next morn
ing, or possibly as you return, the
i ferret will be found curled up on the
bed waiting for his master,
i The question of muzzling a ferret is
always a lively matter of argument.
Most of the muzzles used are totally
unfitted for use, and one might as rea
sonably expect a race horse to run
with a plowing collar around his neck
as to expect a ferret to do good work
with one of the made-to-sell monstros
ities on his nose. A muzzle should
consist of five light, soft leather straps,
which are put together so one forma
the ring of the snout, the others lying
one along the nose, one under the
chiu, one around the nose near the
eyes and the last encircling the neck
close behind the ears. If you cannot
make one yourself take the little fel
low to a harness maker and get him
interested in the matter, and he will
turn out a muzzle that will fit like a
lady's glove, and the ferret will work
comfortably and well. Remember al
ways that the animal is obeying a
natural instinct when he hunts and
that your aim is to assist him as much
as you can.
As to working them with bells I am
not so prejudiced. If the grass or
undergrowth is thick one must either
have bells or very great watchfulness,
as it ruins a ferret to let him run
around loose, even for a very few min
utes, and that is what he will do if he
gets out of an earth without being
seen. The objection to bells is that
the sound travels a long way through
the ground, and if there are any other
passages with rabbits in them they
will all "git up and git" while the
hunter is occupied with one. If they
are used they should bo of the tiniest
model of sleigh bell procurn 1 'e, and
should be slung on to a v / light
strap, care being taken in putting the
collar on that the bells are so arranged
that the buckle comes under the chin,
and the bells one each side and one in
the middle of the back of the neck.
If the bells hang under the chin they
are in the way and half the time they
cannot sound, while if properly dis
posed on the collar the weight of the
buckle will keep them on the back of
the neck, where they will do most
good.
AH most rabbits bolted from earth
are shot within a twenty-yard range,
the gun must either be a cylinder bore
or must be so loaded us to produce
what is called "scatter" shooting, and
what is more it must be a hard-hitting
gun, for the furry fellow takes a lot
of killing, and frequently gets away
with quite a load of shot on board.
The orthodox load is one ounce and a
quarter of No. f shot and three
drachms and a half of powder, using
thick wads over the powder ; but many
good men prefer No. 4 shot, and un
hesitatingly uso wood c# smokeless
powder in the second barrel, if not in
both. This is very important on a
misty morning, when smoke from
black powder hangs around. Arrange
ments to include fair rabbit shooting
and board may bo obtained as low as
twelve dollars per week, and a personal
visit will arrange for any number ol
odd days on about the same terms.
Rabbit shooting obtained this way
beats tramping unknown ground oul
of sight.—New York Recorder.
A Curious Worm,
When Her Majesty's ship Challenger
was engaged in making that celebrated
series of soundings, and while meas
urements of ocean depths were being
taken in the vicinity of the Ladrone
Islands, the dredger brought a curious
specimen of the worm family to the
surface. The creature was about the
Hize of a half-inch rope, nearly twenty
three inches in length, and striped
and banded with all the primary colors.
It had a hooked, hornlike proboscis,
well equipped with powerful teeth,
each hooking downward. The horny
beak was used expressly for capturing
food, and was only 3Cinches in length.
Exactly what a true representative ol
the worm species would do with a
"captured" edible may seem a mystery
to the average reader, but our rain
bow-colored sub-marine curiosity lmd
use for just such provisions. When
ever a periwinkle's egg case or u fresh
lot of frog spawn floated his way he
instantly seized upon it with his
armored beak and quickly "turned
himself wrong side out," completely
enveloping his dinner. This proced
ure revealed n remarkable stato of
affairs. The "dinner hook" was tho
same at both ends, the body of the
worm fastening around it at the mid
dle, and the color of the "inside" of
the worm was tho same us the "out
side"—that is, if anyone could tell
which was which. For want of a bet
ter name tho specimen was labeled
Vermes vice versa.—St. Louis Re
public.
Live Rabbits for Pythons,
Humaue persons have raised a pro
test against, tho caretakeis of the Jar
din d'Acclimatation in tho Bois de
Boulogne, Paris, who allow rabbits to
be put into tho cage of the pythons,
which have lately arrived, during the
daytime. This is done with a view to
interesting visitors to the garden,
many of whom have viewed with in
dignation the spectacles of the poor
bunnies huddled up with fear in cor
ners, awaiting tli; evening, when tho
serpents make short- work of them.
The pythous cat only at nightfall, and
uro fed exclusively on live rabbits.
The protests will no doubt have the of
j feet of preventing this unnecessary
! owelty to animals,—London Standard.

Paris now gets its water supply from
six great springs. It travels through
eighty-three miles of aqueducts.
The Mediterranean has been com
monly supposed to be a sea without
tides; but, as a matter of fact, at
Venice there is a tide in the spring ol
from one to two feet.
The cave animals of North America,
according to Professor A. S. Packard,
of Brown University, comprise 17'j
species of blind creatures, nearly all
of which are mostly whito in color.

In calculating "exact time" at the
National Observatory at Washington,
the astronomers do not, as is generally
supposed, use the sun as a basis of
their calculations. Such deductions
are made only from the relative posi
tion of the "fixed stars."
The largest sun spot ever noted by
astronomers appeared in the fall of
18fi7. It was 280,000 miles long and
190,000 miles wide. Four hundred
planets tho size of the earth, could
have been laid side by sido in that
"spot" without touching each other.
A disease known as peach fever is
common among the employes in the
fruit packing and canning establish
ments of Maryland and Delaware. The
moro experienced workers seem to be
come proof against tho irritant after
some years in the business. There is
no evidence to show that the disorder
is contagious.
Neither the turtle, tortoise nor tead
is provided with teeth. There is a be
lief that a turtle can bite off a finger,
but the turtle can do nothing of the
kind. Its jaws are very strong and
the horny membrane that runs around
the jaw, where, in other animals teeth
are found, is so hard and tough that
the turtle can crush the bones of the
hand to a pulp, but as for biting off a
linger, the feat is an impossibility.
A Costly Walk.
It has been left to a St. Louis busi
ness man to construct a gravel walk,
neither long nor strikingly beautiful, i
that is a modern if comparatively hum
ble rival of the glistening highways of
fiction and fable, for it represents
$15,000 hard cash.
Edward P. Kinsclla, Vice-president
of the Hanley-Kinsella Coffeo Com
pany, is the proud possessor of this
unique walk. It is composed of sev
eral tons of Brazilian pebbles that
came to him in an ordinary business
way during the past few years.
This firm are heavy importers of
Brazilian coffee. Before the berries
are ready to be roasted for the market
the sacks are opened and the contents
carefully examined for twigs, leaves
and other impurities, tho latter gen
erally taking the shape of small peb
bles about the size of a coffee berry.
These came with such regularity and
in such quantities that long ago the
idea they wore accidentally in the sacks
was abandoned, and the conclusion re
luctantly reached that they were pur
posely placed in the bags to make
weight. The daily discoveries of these
Brazilian pebbles will fill an ordinary
water bucket. The importers pay for
coffee. Two years ago Mr. Kinsclla
concluded to utilize this apparent evi
dence of dishonesty of the far away
coffee packer, and had the accumula
tion of pebbles carted out to his hand
some residence, on the West Pine street
boulevard, No. 4328, where they were
used to make a handsome garden walk.
The pebbles represent a weight that in
coffee would be worth $15,000. Tho
gravel path is each month being added
to, and it is but a question of time
when Mr. Kinsclla will have the most
expensive piece of garden path in tho
world.—St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
Fooled 111 in Twice.
The examinations at a certain
"prep." school were in progress. The
boys were working busily over their
papers and the grim old professor was
watching sharply from his desk. Pres
ently he noticed that one of the stu
dents, a prominent ne'er dowell, was
consulting his watch with considera
ble frequency. The professor studied
him. In five minutes he had looked
at the timepiece three times. This'
was enough for the guardian. He
called the student to his desk and de
manded the watch. It was given him
and he opened it. Across the face wan
a piece of paper bearing the legend
"Fooled." But the worthy professor
wos not to be so easily deceived. Ho
gave the student a sharp, knowing
glance, turned the timepiece over and
opened the back cover. It opened
with considerable difiiculty, and, be
hold, there was another slip of paper
bearing the information, "fooled

TALATABLE SOUP MEAT.
Although soup meat is esteemed not
a very nutritious food, it certainly
would bo more palatable at the table if
served with a hot or cold sauce, as it
is in many well-to-do French house
holds. A hot sauce, good for the soup
meat, or other boilod beef, is mado
from a cupful of stock, thickened with
flour and butter rubbed together, and
seasoned with a tablespoonful of vin
egar, and salt, pepper and fine herbs
to taste.—New York Post.
CELERY SOUP.
Put a veal bone to boil in one quart i
of water. After skimming it well put |
in one pint of celery, cut up very fine, !
two tablespoonfuls of rice, one onion,
one teaspoonful of celery salt. Let this
boil until reduced to a pint. Take out
the meat and pass tho soup through a
colander, mashing and extracting as
much of the puree as possible, passing
the stock through it two or three
times. Boil a quart of milk separately,
rub two tablespoonfuls of flour in a
half a cup of butter, add this to the
boiled milk. After cooking it a few
minutes add the milk to the celery
puree aud servo at once, mixing milk
und puree well.—New York World.
BAKED MACARONI.
One-quarter pound of macaroni, one
quarter pound of grated cheese, one
lialf cup of cream, one tablespoonful
of butter ; salt and popper. Break tli3
macaroni in convenient lengths, put it
in a two-quart kettle and nearly fill
the kettle with boiling water, add a
teaspoonful of salt and boil rapidly
twenty-five minutes (the rapid boiling
prevents tho macaroni from sticking
together), drain in a colander, then
throw into cold water to blanch for
ten minutes, then drain again into the
colander. Put a layor of the macaroni
in the bottom of a baking dish, then
a layer of cheese, thou a sprinkling of
salt aud pepper, then another layer of
macaroni, and so continue until all is
used, having the last layer macaroni.
Cut the butter in small bits, distribute
them evenly over the top, add tho j
cream and bake until a golden brown j
(about twenty minutes) in a moderately !
quick oven. Serve in the dish in which
it was baked.—New York Telegram.
BEEF STEW.
Two pounds of beef, tho round, flank
or any cheap part (if there is bone in
it, two and a half pounds will be re
quired), one onion, two slices of car
rot, two of turnip, two potatoes, three
tablespoonfuls of flour, salt, pepper
aud a generous quart of water. Cut
all the fat from tho meat and put it in
a stew-pan ; fry gently for ten or fif
teen minutes. In the meantime cut
the meat in small pieces and season
well with salt and pepper, and then
sprinkle over it tvo tablespoonfuls of
Hour. Cut tho vegetables in very small
pieces and put in the pot with the fat. i
Fry them five minutes, stirring well,
to prevent burning. Now put in the
meat and move it about in tho pot un
til it begins to brown, then add tho
quart of l>oiling water. Cover ; let it
boil up once, skim and set back where
it will just bubble, for two and a half
hours. Add the potatoes cut in thin
slices, and one tablespoonful of flour
which mix smooth with half a cupful
of cold water, pouring about one-third
of the water on tho flour at first, and
adding the rest when perfoctly smooth.
Taste to see if tho stew is seasoned
enough, and if it is not, add more salt
and pepper. Let the stew come to a
boil again, and cook ten minutes ; then '
add dumplings. Cover tightly and \
boil rapidly ten minutes longer. Mut- |
ton, lamb or veal can bo cooked in this
manner. "When veal is used, fry out
two slices of pork, as there will not bo
much fat on the meat. Lamb and mut
ton must have some of the fat put
aside, as there is so much on these
meats that they are otherwise very
gross.—New York Ledger.
HOUSEHOLD HINTS.
A cloth wet in cold tea and laid
across the eyes will allay inflamma
tion.
For bread and pastry have an oven
that will in five minutes turn a piece j
of paper dark brown.
Butter put into clean pots and well
surrounded with charcoal will keep j
good for twelve months.
In baking bread or rolls put a sauce- j
pan of boiling water into the oven, j
The steam will keep tho crust smooth i
and tender.
Peroxide of hydrogen will lighten i
the hair. Put a few drops into a small j
quantity of water and apply thorough
ly with a sponge.
Much of the heavy cake and bread
iB the result of the oven door beiug
banged when closed. Close the door
as gently as possible. Nearly every
one opens it gently enough.
Half a dozen onions planted in tli > i
cellar where they can get a little light
will do much toward absorbing and
correcting the atmospherio impurities
that are so apt to lurk in such places.
A pinch of sulphate of ammonia
dropped in the water in a hyacinth
glass just when the ilower spike is ris
ing will make the dowers come larger
and more deeply colored than without
it.
For frying always put a pound or j
two of tat in the pan. This is no j
waste, as the same fat can he used over
and over by pouring it through a
strainer into a crook kept for the pur
pose.
Vaselino is growing in favor as an
emolieut for shoes. Take a pair of !
shoes, especially the shoos worn by
ladies, and when they become hard
ami rusty apply a coating of vaseline,
rubbing well with a cloth, and the
leather will at once become soft and
pliable and almost impervious to I
water.
Portuguese Characteristics.
The men of Port-ugal are as fond of j
show as are the women. Their fln-'
gers are nearly always loaded with
rings, and about their bodies hang
chains as thick as ropes, from which
are suspended bunches of trinkets. j
The Portuguese dandy iB fond of i
anything (hat draws attention to his
much-esteemed person. Above his
showy vest he wears a cravat of rich
colors, and in his buttonhole a full- |
blown rose. I know lam safo in say-1
log that most of the promenade™ !
whom I have seen on.Sundays in the j
chief thoroughfares with riding
whips in their hands and handsome j
spurs on their heels have never set j
foot in a stirrup. The spur is to i
them a sort of sign of nobility which
they arrogate to themselves, a relic
of the privileges of the old chivalry.
Where is the Portuguese, be hd
muleteer or calkor, whose ancestors
did not wear golden spurs at the
battle of Ourique or of Aljubarrota?
I have noticed that a good many offi
