lot of us— all. 1 believe, men grown,
except myself— went up en Powder
creek, near Sacramento, to hunt bears.
We had a couple of teams and wagons,
and were well accoutered in every way.
The men were telling what they would
do it they came up with any bears', and
had it arranged to a nicety.
••We had scaicely got into Powder
Creek when a big grizzly loomed up on
n well-beaten trail, coming toward us.
Behind him was another big bear, and
in the rear was another, and so on.

to and ate all our provisions. I have
laughed over this experience many a
time, and have never gone on a bear
hunt since. I put enough of it. The

MUIR AND THE RATTLER.
Discoverer of the Great Glacier
and His Yosemite Revelation.
••I have before stated t lint I was a
friend to the snake, and especially to
the rattlesnake," said John Muir, the
noted scientist and discoverer of the
great Muir elaciers in Alaska. "This
may sound strange to you, as it appar

LONG PETER'S DOG.
Denver Times. . .
Long Ridge station was a very solitary
spot indeed, even at the best of times
but just at present, when Long Peter
and I were its only occupants, the lone
liness of our position was horrible.
1 don't think Peter felt it as 1 did. He
was a tall, gaunt Scotchman, who had
been a shepherd in his native land. 1
had come out from a full nest— a happy
home, and the awful monotony of the
Australian wilds seemed sometimes
more than 1 could bear.
For a month at least Long Peter and
1 had shared the work and the danger
between us; he, as the most experi
enced, going out with the sheep, whihi
1 kept the hut, cooked the food ami
attended to the various duties.
On this particular day 1 had been
feeling an amount of listless weariness
which i could scarcely understand my
self, but the fact was that nervous de
pression so overpowered me that when
Bouncer rose tip from my feet with a
growl I started as though some terrible
danger was close at hand.
I walked to the door of the hut and
looked keenly all around, but, could not
see anything unusual.
Still Bouncer knew what he was
about. Bouncer had risen to his feet
and was listening intently. Again he
growled: no, not growled, but whined
impatiently and trotted to the door.
Then 1 knew that whoever might be
approaching was no enemy, buta friend.
Yet, who could it be?
1" followed Bouncer to the door of the
hut and, shading my eyes with my hand,
looked earnestly toward the west, which
was the direction in which the dog was
Presently the quick though muffled
fall of a horse's hoofs became dis
tinctly audible. 1 knew the canter
well; it was that at Black fool, the
splendid riding horse belonging to Mr.
Ashby, the owner of the station.
"Uood afternoon, Jem," he said in his
usual pleasant manner. "Give me a
light for my pipe and a morsel to eat,
for 1 must be off again directly. Any
news going? Long Peter is not home
yet, I suppose? .
'•Ay. there they come," said the mas
ter, in a relieved tone of voice; "and
now, after a few words with Peter, 1
can mount and be off. 1 ought to be
home before it is quite dark.
"Jem." he added, quite impressively,
"I came today to warn you and Peter
that there are blacks in the neighbor
hood. They have been lurking around
the home station for several days, and
they mean mischief, too, for their wom
en are not with them. 1 hope your guns
are in good order? Do you want powder
"We have enough of both," 1 replied,
"but we have only had a dozen bu'ilets.
I'll run them tomorrow." .
This i said with a flush of shame ris
ing to my cheek, for had not Peter asked
me that very morning to run the bul
Mr. Ash by did not seem to observe
my embarrassment, for he was standing
at the door impatiently waiting for
Peter; he had, however, heard my
words, for he replied immediately:
, 'Don't put off anything till tomorrow.
Jem; fetch the mold and get the bullets
run at once; then go to the water hole
ami bring as many buckets full as you
can slow away in the hut."
Even as he spoke Peter and the flocks
arrived, the animals feeding quietly all
the way along. "Good evening, sir,"
said Long Peter quietly to his master.
"I've had some trouble with the
beasts today; three are missing. I
found the body of one of them. It had

mouth when a spear whizzed through
the open doorway and quivered in the
wooden slabs behind.
tiad my two companions been as in
experienced as I was all would now
have been confusion and dismay, but
both the muster and Long Petor were
oid colonists and had had more than one
brash with the natives. They were
both as cool as possible.
"Bar the door, Jem," said the shep
herd, "and hand me the powder flask
and bullets. Here Bouncer, keep a heel,
With a feeling more akin to agony
than 1 had ever known before 1 handed
the powder liask to my fellow servant,
at the same time telling him that 1 had
forgotten all about the bullets and that
only half a dozen remained on hand.
He just gave nits one glance, partly
indignant, partly pity.
"Then we are all up in a tree." he
sni:l : "however, let us do our best; two
bullets to each ot us, Jem, and we'll
stand by each other."
The good old J'ellow! I saw by his
face that he felt for me in the agony of
remorse that I was enduring, and did
not mean to make it the worse for me
by his reproaches.
Meanwhile Mr. Ashby was coolly re
connoitering through the loopholes: he
had let down th« windows, and was pre
paring for action as quietly as the shep
heixl. We handed him two bullets, but
lie pushed them back; he had a few of
"Take them, take them," he whis
pered; "you will need them all." Aud
Suddenly there was a change; three
or tour of the sheep rose, looked all
round, stamped their feet and huddled
close together. Something had alarmed
them, some sight or sound as yet unre
vealed to our blunter faculties.
The next moment a loud report rang
out into a thousand echoes. Peter had
fired the first shot, a shrill death scream
following it, while we could dimly see
the dark figure of a man who leaped
from his ambush aud fell like a clod to
"There, you are all right!'' h*e added,
exultantly, as both Mr.Ashby'sgun and
mine were fired at the same moment,
"lou have each fixed your man and the
others are drawing off tor a little. But.
mark my words, sir." ho added,
"though they are mortally afraid of our
guns, they'll find out soon enough that
ouv aiuinunitiou is running seort. Then
they will fire the hut and we are done
for! Sir, I mean to get Bouncer to help
"The dog?" asked Mr. Ashby, inquir
ingly. "I don't understand. What can
he do? They will certainly kill him if
you let him out,"
"So they will, if they can catch him,"
replied the shepherd, composedly; "but
we must take our chance of that, sir.
if you will write a line to the head sta
tion, telling them what a fix we are in,
I reckon that my doe will carry the let
ter there in less time than a thorough
bred horse could do it. I have taught
him, sir, to fetch and carry, little think
ing that at some time oar lives might
depend upon him doinu it. Please
write the letter, sir."
"But will he go to the head station
with it?" replied the master, who was
busily writing, "how can you get him
"Leave that to me, sir," replied Long
Peter; "the ouly difficulty is, will the
black fellows wait long enough before
they fire the hut, so as to allow of help
coining'/ It is doubtful, i»ut we can
only uy. We are |in God's hand's, sir."
Peter pulled away a half-rotten slab
from beneath his bunk, thus making a
hole sufficiently large for Bouncer to
creep through. He then fastened the
letter securely to his collar, the noble
animal giving now and then a sup
pressed whine and trembling from head
to foot with anxiety.
'•Now go, good dog,' 1 he whispered;
and squeezing him through the hole ;

"but take care of yourself ; don't let
them see you."
1 did as 1 was directed, and thoroughly
drenched the root, but while thus en
gaged I heard a shout from below. It
was Mr. Ashby'svoice.
"Come clown, Jem; come quickly,"
he cried, and 1 rattled down the ladder
with a sinking heart.
Long Peter lay on the floor of the hut,
white and gasping; a spear had entered
one of the loopholes and pinned him
through the thigh. In response to my
groan of utter dismay ho struggled into
a hitting position.
"Never mind me, Jem," he said;
"right it out to the last. Take my gun;
there is one charge in it yet; but hrst
drair me into that corner."
1 obeyed in silence, handed him a
pannikin of cold tea and then took my
place by Mr. Ash by ' 3 side.
"Look out," lie whispered. "I mean

As he spoke these departing words
Mr. Ashby tied, the buliet bringing
down the man aimed at, who, with a
wild screech, fell to the ground.
Then: was a pause . of .consternation
after this, and hurried talk among the
savages outside; then, with wild yells,
the whole force of the besiegers rushed
on our little garrison.
A moment's surging around the door,
then it gave way with a crash; Mr. Ash
by's gun swung on the crowd of savages
with terrific force, felling two of them
1 can scarcely describe what followed.
Dimly I seemed to hear a loud hurrah
from "the outside' followed by th« crack
of rifles: then' every " sound died away
into utter silence. -■ ■'■'

It was Uib voice of Jerry, dragging

from off ray chest. "

enough; "not even wounded, though

"But you should have seen that doc:
of Peter's. Why, his feet was all skinned
and raw, and he had an ugly spear
wound in his shoulder, so that the latter
was covered with blood. We could
scarcely make ■it out; but we guessed
quick enough that there was something
amiss, and came away at once. We
were just in time, Jem, my boy."

quivering voice; '■ "Poor old chap," he
added tenderly, as the faithful unite
limped across the hut at the sound of
the shepherd's voice and crept close to
his side. "You rind me will never pa.it,
Bouncer, never, as long as we live."
And they never did till seven years
later when, in extreme. old age, Bouncer
died and was buried in a grave dug for
him by Long Peter himself.

New Plan to Preventing Railway
The recent agitation for reform in
railway fog signaling has had the effect
of bringing before the public many
novel systems of increasing the safety
of railway travel in bad weather. One
of these is regarded as giving great
promise of affording a remedy for the
dislocation of railway traffic which oc
curs on many lines.especially the
winter months. It is believed thatgreat
improvement dean bu made in signaling
trains by having a telegraph instrument
fixed on the engine. This could be
connected with the signal box by
laying a wire along, .the rails, loose, in
v-shaped insulators, and fixing a pulley
on the engine, or tender at sufficient
height to pick up the wire as the train
traveled.: The -return, or earth, wire
need only be fixed to any part of the en
gine and the current would pass through
the wheels to the earth. The driver
or brake man would thus be
in constant communication with
the signalman. The line . ■would
of course, be divided into sec
tions, and when the train entered upon
any section the brakeman h would ring
the bell in the signal box, and get a
reply "train on line," or "line clear."
This would be more absolutely satis
factory to the driver than seeing the
signal "off," because de would know he
was getting proper attention and if no
reply was given to his "bell" he would
pull up the train and find out the rea
son. One great advantage of this system,
would be that during fogs it would," not'
be necessary to see any signals .
at all along the line, and by insulating
the wire, say at 500 and 200 yards from,
every station, the driver would know,
exactly where he was, and could pull,
up the train at the platform without
lights as well as with them. The value
of this system becomes more evident in
the face of the well known fact that
when a fog comes on suddenly, no mat
ter how well the line may be managed.,
it takes some time to get the "fogmen"
properly placed along the line, (and
wnen the are "foggiue" they must be
neglecting some other duty. — - -

the fluctuations. The strength, in wheat
helped the buying in corn. The exports
"were 155,000 bu for the day, and these
"and firm cables helped the price. An
official estimate of Russian crops makes
the totals much lighter than the Novem
ber estimate. This helped the market
on the buying side. Yet there was an
'improvement of '"but '40 in the price.
May corn opened at 47'^c and gained
gradually to 47% c. Corn closed at 47^c
"for May and July, with a featureless
market. ~- ,. ■""/£» : . ; 1-
Oats, although..: quiet, ruled firm
er with corn, May opening at 34% c.
Business ,in that option was fairly act
ive at the opening, which - was the low
es! for the day. Later it sold up to
34% c, where it was half an hour be
fore the close. The shippers and out
siders were the principal buyers. The
market closed steady at 34; ! or %c
above Friday's closing figures.
The provision market worried the
scalpers. With very light stocks and
very light movement of hogs the situa
tion must remain very bullish. It is
simply a question of whether prices are
at too high a point to make it safe to
own the stuff on contracts. Mr. Wright,
who has made such big money on prod
ucts inside of six months, is letting the
market alone. Steever and many
others are doing the same thing.
They fear a drop. Fairbank is,
of course, back of lard in a safe way.
His brokers give the price a twist
whenever they feel like it. Shorts have
fared badly in all products of late. The
noisy element in the trade did the buy
ing of pork today. Conservative opera
tors were not buying or selling. May
pork sold at $19.75, to $19.25, to £19.67%,
to $19.45, to $19.05 at 10 o'clock. Lard
was at $11.75 at the opening and sold
off to $11.62% and up to $11.72)^. Itibs
sold at $10.25 and off to $10.10. At the
close lard was strong at f 11.70 for May,
while pork and ribs were 15c under last
night at $.57> 2 ' and $10.10 respectively.
Estimated receipts for Monday;
Wheat. 165 cars; corn, 240 cars; oats,

Cables were more encouraging with a
better tone in American markets. Some
of the buying, it was alleged, was due
to the expectation of a rise if the anti
option bill passes, as there would be no
more to no short to sell it to those short
now, and if they buy from the lonirs it
would advance the market. Another
theory was that if the bill does not pass
wheat will be higher because the fear
of it would be out of the way. Wheat
on passage was unaltered, and off coast
at London steady, with spot wheat
quoted firmer in Liverpool. The country
movement is nothing, as the team roads
are blocked up and severe weather
keeps farmers at home. Receipts were

"Have you no friends with political
influence enough to get some kind of
easy job for you?" inquired the man in
the shaggy ulster.

terday morning 1 lost my knife, and to
day I've got an earache. That's the
way it always goes, if it- isn't one
trouble it's another. There's only one

fortune is coming next!"
