FIELDS OF ADVENTURE.
THRILLING INCIDENTS AND DARING DEEDS ON LAND AND SEA. A Maine Woodsman Resorted to the Las no to Subjugate an Infuriated Wild cat—A Crippled Roy Raced AVlth Fire Down a Mountain to Save Human Lives When Zenas Pillsbury, of South Presque Isle, Me., left liis home on Friday for a trip through the woods over Potawasli Mountain to the valley, where he has a hunting lodge, his wife said: "Zenas, you'd better take the big rifle along." "What for?" asked Zenas, who has been in the woods long enough to wish to be rid of firearms when they haven't any pressing use. "It's close time on moose and deer." "I know," said the wife, "but on last Wednesday Henry Brooks got a bear over on the mountain, and they're ugly this time of year." Pillsbury laughed at the woman's fears and tramped away with a small coil of rope over his shoulder and a knife in his belt. By noon Pillsbury was well over the range, and was passing down the far ther side into the valley,when his ears caught the sound of something that re sembled the purring of a cat. He turned quickly to the right to look straight into the face of an "Indian devil," which is the woods name for a member of the cat tribe, panther-like, that sometimes drifts south from the great Canadian forests and kills sheep and runs away with children in North ' Maine towns. When Zenas was a young man his father had taken him West to grow up into a stout lad, who could ride a buck ing broncho, snuff a candle with a gun i or lasso a steer at a gallop. Conse quently in this critical moment Pills bury's nerve did not leave him. Look ing the big cat in the face, swiftly he took down the coil of rope from his shoulder and, quicker than it can be told, made a slip-knot and a noose in one end of it. Then he began a gen tle dance before the eyes of the beast, who gazed at him in a sort of fascina tion. Pillsbury's arm swung 'round and 'round, faster and faster until the long noose stood out stiffly and sung like a lash as it Hew through the air. Then Pillsbury cast it. The noose settled over the small head of the ani mal and was drawn fast so suddenly that escape was out of the question. The cat leaped backward with a snarl of anger, and bit at the choking line in vain. Near the spot was a good-sized beech tree, with plenty of space about its foot. Toward that Pillsbury looked, and, when the cat was snarling at the rope, he leaped for the tree, the cat following. Pillsbury ran around the tree trunk with his end of the rope, and was close in the rear of the cat when the latter turned quickly and made for the man. This was just what Zenas wanted. He pulled in his end of the rope, and the cat was hung fast. The more the cat pulled and dragged to get at Zenas, the harder Zenas held the rope. For more than an hour man and cat swung about the tree trunk. At first this was fun. But when the operation had continued for an hour the woodsman became weary. To end it, only fight or strategy remained. Fighting a wildcat with a small knife isn't pleasant business, and Pillsbury chose the other method. Taking a grip on the rope, which held the cat around the-tree, he picked up the slack and made another noose. This ho cast deftly over the head of the animal and drew it fast, still keeping his hold upon the main part of the rope. Then lie dropped the rope and ran swiftly until out of range of the animal's claws. The cat was secured. Pillsbury left him there and went on to camp. When he came back in the afternoon the cat was gone, and so was the rope. —New York Press. A Roy L!>ro With Wooden LPJJS. Not far away from the Virginia line lives a two-thirds youth, for, unfortu nately, both of his lower limbs are ar tificial, who has to his credit an act of heroism which should make him a loved lad as long as the memory of those who know him lasts. His name is "Tim" Olin, and his home is away up in the mountains, thirty-five miles from everywhere, as a book agent once said of that part of the country. This bit of a boy about threet weeks ago heard that forest lires were sweep ing everything that would burn before them along the Virginia side of the mountains. One afternoon he climbed through the snow to the top of the mountain, one of the steepest of the Cumberland, and took a view of the fire-swept country below him. He was surprised to find the lire so fierce, and, as he watched, Tim saw that the red tongues wore creeping on toward a little log cabin in which lived two old and helpless women, the Ober sis ters, and their blind and crippled brother, who is one of the oldest men over on the other side. The lad real ized that the house was a long way from any other farmhouse and knew that the people in the humble cot would find themselves powerless if they were left in the cabin until the fire got to their home. Without think ing of how much suffering it meant to his poor aching limbs, Tim started down the rugged hillside on his peri lous journey of heroism. He had a race with the fire, and twice fell from exhaustion and almost despaired of saving the old folks. But his indomi table courage never flagged and he kept going. He reached the old home stead just as the prairie fire was at tacking the old frame crib. He hurried into the house and in formed the old and thoroughly fright ened people of their danger. It only took him a few minutes to hitch the horse to the sled, and the old man was helped on to this. The four drove 011 to shelter at the nearest neighbors. leaving the fire to do its worst. The homo of the old people was partly burned during the night, but the boy had gotten some of the neighbors to go and fight the fire, and they were able to save most of the contents ol the house.—Providence (R. I.) Jour nal. Saved Her Cousin From an IZiigle. Miss Bertha Moore and her little golden-haired cousin, Elsie Talsen, went out for a quiet stroll along the mountainside near Germanic, Penn., in the great black forest the other morning. Bertha Moore is the typical daughter of a backwoodsman, tall and well formed, lithe as a panther and with the rustic beauty coming from a healthy outdoor life. She lives with Charles Talsen and his wife in a cabin two miles from this place. They had wandered nearly half a mile from Talsen's home when Miss Moore sat down to rest beneath a shade tree while Elsie ran off to gather a bunch of daisies which she saw nearby. Suddenly Miss Moore was startled by a child's shriek of terror and in stantly she rau toward the spot where the child had disappeared behind a thicket of laurel. When she reached the spot where Elsie lay on the ground she saw an immense eagle of the species which infest the Allegheny wilds, endeavoring with its great claws to drag the child from the ground. The brave young woman never hesi tated, but rushed forward to save her little cousin. As sh approached the eagle rose, but suddenly swooped down upon Miss Moore and sank its claws in her right shoulder. It was now a fight for her own preservation, and she grappled with the great bird. She was badly torn by the eagle's claws, but finally succeeded in grasp ing it around the neck, and this, by strenuous efforts, she broke. Miss Moore vyas bleeding from many wounds, but, fortunately, none were serious, and she started home with Elsie, dragging the eagle with her. The bird measure eight feet from tip to tip. Iluntcr and Jagutir Bstli Shot. The Century is a "Big Game" num ber, and one of the articles is "Hunt ing the Jaguar in Venezuela,"written by William Willard Howard. Mr. Howard says: There is no recognized way of hunt ing tigers with guns. Sometimes the hunters go out on horseback, particu larly in the cattle districts of tho Ori noco llanos and the valley of the Amazon, with dogs and ludian ser vants to drive up the game. Ofteuer the hunter lies in wait for the tiger to approach a tethered calf. When several hunters with guns go out together there is serious peril, as an incident I have in mind will show. A Venezuelan man of affairs, whom I know well, went to visit a friend on a coffee plantation, and incidentally to try a new riile. The host called in two neighbors, and arranged ahuut. When tho hunting party left in the morning the host's two young sous remained at home with three servants. Late in the afternoon, when the party re turned, neither boy 3 nor servants werj to be seen. As the hunters roamed about the plantation, looking for the hoys, they heard a crying in the toji of a slender tree. The boys were in the tree, white with terror. "What is the matter?" called the father. "Why aro yon in the tree?" "The tiger! the tiger!" shrieked the boy 3. "A big female tiger is at the bottom of the tree." The tiger had been unable to climb so slender a tree. The father pushed his way quickly through the bushes to shoot the tiger before it should escape. His friends followed slowly. In a few moments a shot was heard, and then a Wild scream. The hunters rushed forward. Their friend and a big tiger wore roll ing ou the ground together. Tlioy fired twelve times, as rapidly as they could work their macazine-rifies and then tiger and man lay still. Four bullets had entered the tiger and eight had pierced the body of tho man. A Bicyclist ill eil by Snakes. Alfred Allen, who canvassed for subscribers for weekly newspapers at Binghamton, N. Y., bad a queer ex perience. He travels through the country on a bicycle and was riding down a hill on the road between Mon troso and Great Bend, Penn., when lie rau into a lot of rattlesnakes. Ho saw the reptiles in the road ahead, but wa3 going so fast that he could not stop. He realized that he stood- a pretty good chance of being stung while going past them, as a rattlesnake is a3 quick as lightning to strike. The noise of the whjel had put them on the defensive and the rattles were giv ing that well-known warning to keep away. Allen saw that he was in for it, so taking his feet from the pedals and putting them up as far as possible lie went coasting down the bill at n lively rate. As the bicycle passed the snakes twenty heads darted out and Allen soon felt them whipping him about the back and legs at every turn of the wheels. He became so excited that be paid little attention to the handle bars. The wheel soon shied to one side of the road, dumping him over an embankment. When he got his equili brium be picked up the wheel and found entwined about the spokes and sprocket chain a mass of dead rattle snakes, crushed and torn into ribbons. Ho did not attempt to dislodge them, but waited until a farmer came along and took him and the wheel to Great Bend.—New York Sun. A few years ago careful estimates were made as to the number of horses in the world. It was learned that there were over 68,000,000, divided as follows: In Europe, 37,000,000; Asia, 4,500,000; Africa, 1,060,000; America, 23,500,000; Arstralia, 2,000,000. —~ I* '' —— Something Startling In Veils. There has been a great deal said | about colnveb veils, but it is a term | that was in no way descriptive except I as comparatively with the heavy net veils. The newest veil is in reality a J cobweb veil, with all the irregularity • and variety of angular joints of a cob j web, and in the centre or thereabouts I of each web is a chenille spider, with | long, pointed legs. The effect at a I little distance is of stars, but a closer inspection shows the mesh of the veil, and it becomes apparent without ! doubt that the spider's web and the | spiders are all there waiting for the traditional fly. About the borders ! are figures of the same shape as the spiders, but without the chenille. Popular Traveling Costume. I Flax-colored linen traveling cos tumes are chosen by rnauy fashionable women. The Holland jacket-bodices open in front over a stylish em broidered vest. The good skirt is i about four yards wide, and fits closely on the front and sides. The material, though it passes by the name of Hol land, differs considerably in substance from the old-time linen, so-called, since there is a wiry weave suggestive of wool in tho newly-named variety. Cool-looking ecru linens will also be in fashionable favor in coat and short ; Eton suits of various kinds. Other ecru linens, almost as thin as batiste, and so generally becoming, are made I with a belted waist, crossed with gui pure insertion of an elaborate pattern, the belt and folded collar of colored satin. The two-Hounce or double skirt is finished with tucks and inser tions of the guipure. Tho close sleeves have waistbands of the satin and turn-back cutis of the lace.—New ; York Post. Women at Auctions. Nowhere does the propensity ia wo men for bargains show to such extent as at an auction. There was a recent auction of household furniture in a city several times smaller than New York and not so much troubled by the auc tion mania. But the womcii of the place turned out bravely, showing a pretty spirit which needed only prac tice to develop into metropolitan pro portions. The auction was to bo held in the house to which the furniture had belonged, and all tho small house hold necessities which accumulated gradually were sold and seized upon with avidity by the bidders. They paid enough for collections of dust rags to buy a piece of now cheese cloth in the shops, and they bid for cheap arti ; cles of crockery, bought for a certain temporary prettiness, and paid for them prices far exceeding what they must have cost at the five and ten cent stores. But the provincial spirit of the auction was shown iu the charm ing and neighborly spirit in which peo ple took back their bad bargains. A woman who found that an enormous enammeled tray was too large for her family handed it back to the auctioneer with that reasonable excuse, and he sold it for her. The woman who had bought a carpet which had been too freely visited by the investigating Buf falo bug did not like tho price she had paid for the carpet when she had dis ! covered it, and it was reduced aud whether it was of the auction genus, i metropolitan or provincial, the bidders staid packed in suffocating crowds for nearly tho whole of a hot June day, and went without their dinners to do it. Novel liuilii ens Venture. The latest departure in the line of a business venture for gentlewomen is that made by Mrs. lA?t\yard Stevens who has opened in New York City the "Bureau of Social Requirements." Mrs. Ledyard, who was the daughter of Dr'. Horace White, of Madison avenue, and is related, through her mother, to the Chaulers and the Stuy vesants, is a lady of long ex])erienee in the social life of New York, who proposes by means of this bureau to : meet a long-felt want, and she thus announces that she is prepared to fur nish all information on social matters, the designing and management of all entertainments, from a wedding to a child's tea party, the ethics .of card usage, the posting of visiting lists, the dismantling or opening of town or country houses, or that she will send to one's house daily one of a corps of trained gentlewomen to care for the lamps, to clean the silver, arrange the drawing-room or set tho table; and the bureau's announcement ends with the welcome news that the "polishing of ladies' and children's shoes will he i carefully looked after by an experi j enced attendant." Another clever woman, whose extreme good fortunes i have taken unto themselves wings, has bravely met the stress by opening a shop where may be found the most artistic aud desirable of tea-gowns, ; matinees, negligees and all of those I artistic house liipperies, which are a delight to the heart of feminin ity. The sight of a friend's house petticoat, with its ruffle pieced direct ly in the front, is said to have been the means of pointing away to this cour ageous women who was vaiuiug trying i to take accounting of her talents to the J end that she might meet her needs, i The merit of her creations lies in the I simplicity of the designing and ma j terials, the exquisite attention to de : tail and the appealing colors and com ! binations of color used. Aud this j gifted high priest of feminine belong ; ings is so consistent in the carrying out of her thought, that even the boxes used to convey a garment to its destination partake of the color of the dainty confection which its holds, and within the folds of tissue paper or gar ment always lingers a bit of a sachet, "for I find that nothing so pleases a woman as these very same attentions to the luxury of detail," says Mrs. Kirtland.—Detroit Free Press.

At the New Hospital for Women, in Euston Koad, London, where all the doctors are women, there have been only two deaths out of ninety major operations. Miss Lottie Farnsworth is a profes sional bicycle racer, and is becoming noted for the masculine qualities she exhibits in her riding, in addition to the feminine one of endurance. Miss Ellen Terry takes immense pains over each of her stage costumes. She never wears anything but real lace, and every bit of embroidery stitched on her gowns is done by hand, ofteu from a design supplied by her self. Miss Evelyn Louise Lease, the sev enteen-year-old daughter of Mary E. Lease, the Populist orator, accepted an invitation to deliver a lecture before the National Chautauqua Assembly in Jamestown, N.

Three Good Liars. The men who utilize the corner grocery for a ehil> room in the evening uml on stormy days had just been dis cuss'ng a fox liunt, about which one of their nunibor had read aloud, when the conversation naturally took a rem iniscent turn. "Nothing cuter or more canning in the world than a fox," said Hoggs, by way of introduction. "I remember one night wlieo I was a boy that we heard a great fuss among the dogs that were chained Hp. It took us about half tin hour to got dressed and tunned to sally forth for the purpose of investigating. Not discovering anything, we loosened the dogs, and they darted off on a trail, yelping as they went. Wo didn't know whether it was man or varmint, but after t long run the dogs brought up at the hen house and tried to teai it down. Well sir, an old fox bad deliberately showed himself to the dogs, so as to excite them, made tlint run while we were getting ready for trouble and, circling round, was rob bing the roost while the doge were off the premises." "I walked up one moonlight night," volunteered the man on the wood box, "and seen a fox under an apple tree where a fat pullet was roosting. 1 knew tiie tliicf couldn't climb, so I just stood at the window laughing. The fox barked to wake the chicken, and then began circling around the tree, slow at first, but going faster uud faster. Of course the terrified pullet followed him with her eyes ami got so dizzy that she fell out of the tree." "I see sometliln' like that once," said llie lank individual on a paint keg. "only that the chicken I was watcliin' wrung its own neck, 'cause the fox was goin' so durned fast." Then, by common consent, tlic crowd took up the subject ot fluids.—Detroit Free Press. Steering a Steamship. Gustav Kobbe has an article entitled "Steering Without a Compass" in the St. Nicholas. Ml'. Kobbe says: The degree of "A. B." Is not con. ftm-d to college graduates. Aboard sliip it means "able-bodied" seaman. Every nautical A. B. knows bow to "box the compass" aud how to steer by It; but you will be surprised to learn that no good helmsman will steer by a compass unless all other tilings fail him. Among those "other things" are the horizon, the wind, the wake of the ship, the stars the soundings, and tlic lino of lhe surf whan running along the coast. And so the able-bodied sea man, when a greenhorn takes his trick at the wheel, hands over the helm to him with this caution: "Keep your head out of the binnacle!" I am speaking of sailing-vessels. Steamers, especially those that travel on regular routes, steer by compass. Tliey "run their courses" from point to point—from light-house to light-house, light-ship, day-mark, buoy, bell or fog whistle. In thick weather they know, taking wind and tide Into considera tion, how long they should stand on each course, and try never to pass the "signal" at the end of It. When tliey have seen or heard that signal, tliey start on the next "nm" or course. This Is called "running the time aud dis tance " I hare gone into Halifax on a steamer that met with thick l'og from Cape Cod down. One morning the Captain said to me: "We ought to pick up Sanibro in half an hour." Surely enough, about half an hour later we hoard, through the fog, a oan nou-chot. the distinguishing fog-signal of the Sauibro light-station on the Nova Scotian coast. Real sailors—the Jack tars that man sailing-vessels— actually prefer, as I have said, to steer by signs rather than by compass; and there are times when the steamer-pilots have to. Couldn't Tell.
