Joe Newton, a stalwart young
mountaineer living near Littleton, is
the hero of that neighborhood, and
is at the same time pronounced un
. .... , . *, .
hesitatingly the most fortunate man
in West Virginia.
Newton is quite a sportsman and
a crack shot Early one morning he
went out turkey hunting on old Bald
Knobmountain: As he went to the
mountain he stopped at the home of
Job Magruder. where he held a short
conversation with Kittle, the daugh
tor of the house, and then proceeded
to Dead Man's gulch into the pine
woods. Here ho struck the first
Quite a large fl.vck of birds had
alighted and wandered along the
edge of a dangerous precipice, and
then un the mountain. Newton
noted the signs, and with his dog
gleefully followed the trail in an-i
ticipation of a good shot >
After reconnoitering a few mo
ments he decided that they were !
either on a wooded lodge, which ho
knew jutted from the or.st wall of
tho gorge, or else were at the bottom
of the gulch.
Ho quietly crent through the brush'which
toward the edge of the precipice.and
took a station under the old hem
lock, from where ho could seethe
gulch below and the several ledges
thereabouts. ..He finally located the
flock-among the brush on a iedgo al- I
most directly below him. He could :
hear, but not see. a male bird as it
gobbled and strutted abjut. Ho j
l'utiontiy waited for it to show {»self
so that ne couid pick it off. Finally |
ho saw its tail through the brush,
and took aim ut tho turkey cock, lit- ]
tlo dreaming of the danger that !
menaced him. The dog was growl-|
ing. and.fearing that he would scare
oJ tho turkey. Nowton fired.
Simuitaneously with the crack of ;
the riile there was a crash among
the trees, a wild scream and the
next instant a huge panther, which
hai been crouching on a tree direct
ly behind Newton and watching his !

Newton was
stunned momentarily by the panther's
spring, but soon rallied, and a fear
ful struggle with the bloodthirsty
beast ensued. In the straggle New
ten blindly staggored toward the
edge of the precip ce, and stumbling,
fell over and shot downward. In
the fight he had graspod the pan
thcr s legs, and unconsciously, he
held on to them in his terrible fail
through space, logether man and
beast trashed downward through
the brush to the lodge near the bot
tom of tho gulch. How ho landed
he knew not, for he lost conscious
ness in the fall, but it was his grip
on the panther's legs that save 1 bis
The dog which had attempted to
aid its master in his unequal fight
with tho panther seemed to possess
almost human sen e. Nero, as New
ton had named him, at once ran
barking, howling, and crying to
Magruder s cabin, nearly a mile dis
'ant He scratched on the door of j
the house and howled dismally. Kit- !
ty Magruder, the young woman with !
whom the hunter had talked in tho j
morning, at once divined that some- I
thing nad happened to the young :
man, and. picking up her father's j
rifle, she started for the mountain, j
Nero trotted ahead of her whining I
and growling until he came to the i
precipice, when he sat back on his
haunches and howled dismally. j
Looking down into the gulch the !
girl at once recognized the apparent- j
ly dead body of Newton. She at
once fired her rifle three times—the !
mountaineer's signal of help needed. !
In a few minutes her signal was an
swerod from the mountain side below
and in a short time her father came
rushing through the brush to her
aid. He soon learned what was
wanted' and hastened back to bis
house to get rope and tackle so that

Kitty had meanwhile been investi
gating and had discovered that New
ton had had a fight with some kind
of a wild aaimai, and. again peer

After carefully fixing tho ropes
Magruder lowered him-clf to tho
ledge. As soon as he had safely
reaened the side of Newton he shout
ed back that the dead animal

around Newton's body Magruder
quickly pulled him to the top'of tho
precipice, where Kitty cared for
him. Magruder next lifted the body
of the panther to the mountain side,
and then followed himself,

and Par. of lud.aa Territory.
The best scientists of the land
favor the opinion that Nebraska.
hausas and part of Indian territory
are situated over an immense under
ground lake or sea. says the St Louis
Republic. It is a well known fact
that in several places in Kansas
whole sections of laud have suddenly
disappeared, leaving only fathomless
lakelets to mark thô spot whore they
were once situated. Proof that there
is something peculiar with the foun
dation of the section of tne country
mentioned may be found in the eele
brated -tide wells" of Polk. Butler
and Colfax counties in Nebraska.
Polk county is best provided with
those curious wells, having between
a dozen and twenty, which roar and
ebb ami flow with an unseen tide.
The roaring of these remarkable
> curiosities (they cannot be called
natural wonder! because they are
! the work of man. at least so far as
excavation is concerned, is caused
by the inhalation and exhalation of
immense quantities of air. There
are hours, regular ami uniform, in
brush'which the air will rush out with a
loud, hissing sound, und again an
equal space of time in which it seems
that all the air of the Platte Talley
will be sucked into the cavernous
depths of these wonderful wells.
I Tue period of this obb and flow
: does not seem to de: end upon either
the ,-oason or the state of the weath- :
j or, but ! t is thought to have some
mysterious correction with the high
| and low tile periods of the Atlant c
and Pacific oceans. A meteorologist
] of natural refutation, who sought to :
! fathom tho mystery of the -Platte
river tide wells." md who issued a
little pamphlet with the title -Roar
log Wells of Nebraska," gave It as
; his opinion that tho roaring pheuom
enon was in sorao wav ''connected
with the prevailing direction of the
wind.being strongest in time of ve.t
or southwest breezes. The farmers
! in the three counties mentioned as
being best provided with these tide
regulated, air expelling wells be
lievo that the water supply is con
nectod with a body large enough to
have a regulur ebb and flow of "tide,
All the welis in the counties of l'olk
ani Butler which are ti io-regulated
are of about the same depth! those
of Colfax being deeper, but all ex
tending to a porous stratum having
tho sumo general characteristics.
In the time of William tho Third.
Mr. Tredenham. a poet, was taken
before the earl of Nottingham
suspicion of having treasonable pa
pars. -I am only a poew" protested
the poor man, -and these pages are
only my roughly sketched play."
The earl, however, carefully looked
over the papers in question before
liberating the poet. Finally he re
turned the sheets to the delighted
author. -I have heard your state

j cut off a fragment to send to a neigh
