Y—Milton Stelves of this city was nearly killed In a fight with a bald eagle near North Creek lumber camp. He was rescued badly wounded by a fellow lumber man and Is under the care of physi. clans. Stelves came upon two eaglea devouring the carcass of a calf and shot one of the birds. Before he could reload his gun the other eagle attacked him. He struck at the bird repeatedly with his rifle butt, but the eagle, al« though one of its wings was broken, was getting the better of the battle when a hunter killed the feathered fighter with a club. The bird weighed seventy-five pounds and measured nine feet from tip to tip. Persian. Lamb 8kint. The trade In Persian lamb or astra^ fthan skins centers In Turkestan, and the traders of that country have the pntlre monopoly of It. They pasture Jhe ewe lambs In Immense flocks, and |t has been found useless to try to ac* pustom these animals to any consld prable change of climate. If they purvive elsewhere, the skin under goes degeneration and the fur conse quently becomes less valuable.—Har per's Weekly.
