"The most interesting story I ever

"As told by a white man the narra- h

warrior. It was about a meeting with i1
a big grizzly bear in the mountains c
,f Colorado. Charley was out looking b
for deer. He was equipped with an

away and so I kill deer and leave big fi

WORRMS ON THEIR TRAVELS.
Met With in Millions in Forests of
Hungary and Norway.
The Sciara, of the genus Tipulx, a
tiny wormlike creature which is
found in the forests of Norway and
Hungary during the month of July or
early in August, gather in huge num
bers preparatory to migrating in
search of food or for a change of con
ditions. When setting out on this
journey they stick themselves togeth
er by means of some glutinous mat
ter, and form a huge serpentlike mass,
often reaching a length of between
forty and Afty feet and several inches
in thickness. As the sciara is only
on an average of about three thirty
seconds of an inch in length, with no
appreciable breadth whatever, the
number required to form a continuous
line of the size above mentioned is in
Their pace is, of course, very slow,
and upon meeting an obstacle, such as
a stick or stone, they either writhe
over or around it, sometimes break
ing into two bbdies for the purpose. A
celebrated French naturalist says that
if the rear portion of this snakelike
procession be brought into contact
with-the front part the insects will
keep moving round in that circle for
hours, never seeming to realize that
they are getting no further on their
journey. If the portions be broken in
two the procession will unite inn a
short time. When the peasant meets
one of these processions he will lay
some obstacle in front of it. If it
passes over it it is a good omen.
