Lockhart Puts Hla Wlta to WorkA
Battle More DpTal Was Never Be
fore Beheld.
- A dssperate and almost indescribable bat
tle between a horde of rattlesnakes and a
btmeh of bogs occurred a few days since on
Abe Lockhart s place, at the foot of Black
mountain. This branch of the Allegheny
has been lung noted as the home and rendez
vous of thousands of black and rattlesnakes
of the dusky brown species, which have been
looked upon with dread by the hunters from
the fact that they have always been ex
ceedingly aggressive and dangerous. For
years this mountain has been the terror and
dread or the people of the vicinity, and it is
seldom that any traveler or hunter has bad
the temerity heretofore to cross the ridge at
or near a certain point, so numerous and
deadly have been the poisonous reptiles.
out that has all been changed, owing to
the fnct that old Uncle Abe Lockhart has
imported from North 'Carolina a bunch of
the long nosed, lank, long legged species of
bogs, which from their elongated personnel
hare been identified under the title of slug
diggers. Uncle Abe had been so pestered and
annoyed by the army of snakes whicb in
fested his farm that he put his wits to work
and finally hit upon the happy plan of im
porting his lank and bony swine, which have
had the reputation of being inveterate ene
mies of the snake family. He hauled over
the mountains twenty-two big, bonv hogs of
the species abovo described, and placed them
in pens, where he kept them well fed and
treated.
THE CORN TRAIL.
When the old man had concluded that his
muscular pets had become sufficiently accli
mated and at home be released them from
their pns, and early in the morning, while
tt was j et cool and the snakes were still half
benumbed or asleep, he went up the mountain
to a spot where he knew the reptiles dwelt
hy the thousand. All along the pathwav he
dropped grains of com until he reached th
side of the snake pit, a sunken spot in the
side of the mountain, containing about half
an acre, here he threw down a bushel of
loose corn, and, together with the boys,
Jim and George, took shelter in low trees.
W ithin a few minutes the satisfied grunts
of the porkers were beard as they followed
the trait of corn, until the whole drove
of hogs broke into view from the under
brush. They carce on until they arrived
at the pit, where they stood for a min
ute or two until the old boar, an im
mense fellow, came up, when he took the
lead and went granting down the bank into
the pit All the other members of the family
followed, until the twenty-two hogs were ail
within the small amphitheatre of a half acre.
The hogs quickly picked up the corn, but by

At One Time One ot the Hoat Beautiful
Women In Europe.
I do not think that the present generation
of young royal ladies can present as exquisite
types of loveliness as did that now passing
away. Twenty -five years ago the empress
of Austria, for Instance, was simply dazzling.
she would have been noted for her beauty
had she been a barmaid or a ballet girL The
slender, graceful figure, the finely molded
features, the large, brilliant dark eyes, the
beautifully formed head crowned with a
wealth of black silken tresses, all went to
make up an ensemble of physical perfection.
I saw her once at that period, when 1 was
staying at the Archduke Charles hotel at
Vienna. The radiant Elizabeth came there
with her imperial husband to call upon the
Countess of Flanders, the sister-in-law of the
king of the Belgians. She passed in front of
a large window opening upon the balcony.
and on that balcony was stationed a party f
Americans, one of which was myself, all
eager to catch a glimpse of the famous royal
beauty. With true queenly courtesy she
tused for a moment on beholding the
group, and stood there for a brief but ap
preciable space of time, as if to say: "You
wanted to see me here 1 am r l hen, with
a stately inclination of her beautiful head,
she turned away and rejoined her husband,
leaving everyone of the spectators in rapt
ures with her loveliness, bhe was attired in
a costume of transparent muslin and Valen
ciennes lace, with a broad sash in violet silk
thickly embroidered with steel spangles.
From beneath her compact little turban hat
there fell at the back of her head a mass of
black, glossy braided tresses, coiled round
and round and confined in a net of purple
silk. A simple dress enough for an empress
to wear while paying a call on a princess,
but its very simplicity only served to enhance
the splendor of its wearer's beauty. Of late
years the empress will never consent to sit
for her photograph, and dislikes extremely
to be gazed at in public, sure tokens of the
waning of her once resplendent charms.
She was the one beauty of her family,
none of her three sisters, the queen of
Naples, the princess of Tburn and Taxis
and the duchess d Alencon, being in any
way remarkable for their good looks. In
deed, the last named princess was positively
plain. A good deal of regret has been felt in
Austrian society that the emperor had not
selected Princess Helen, now Princess of
Thurn and Taxis, as she is a very brilliant
conversationalist and is fond of music and
society; wh-reais the empress dislikes even to
show herseif at the opera and really cares
for nothing except riding and hunting. She
is growing rather old to indulge in this
last amusement, being over ol. But she pre
serves many of her charms, and especially
tne shapeliness of her figure and the luxuri
ance of her long, thick tresses. At the court
concert given at Vienna in honor of the em
pernr of Germany, she created a profound
sensation by her coiffure. She wore her hair
falmig unconfirmed at the back, in long masses
over her shoulders and studded with stars of
diamonds held in place by slender,. concealed
wires. This "Berenice coiffure, as it was
called, wdl greatly admired, no less than its
stately wearer. The empress is said to be
the queeuhest royal lady in Europe to be
hold. It is a sight to see her at a court pre
sentation, passing down the line of ladies

from the overpowering smell of the musky
odor that they were forced to lie down under
the trees, but they were perfectly safe so long
as the hogs were about.
After vanquishing tbe army of snakes tbe
porkers lay down among tbe dead bodies of
the enemies until they had sufficiently
rested, when they again aroused them
selves, and, led by the old boar, tbey began
to root up and turn over the rocks, every now
and then exposing a rattler which had hidden
his body away from his porcine enemies.
When a snake was thus exposed there was a
rush, and in a jiffy that rattler was torn into
little bits too small to recognise.
In an hour and a half not a living snake
could be found, and the bot-s were, to all ap
pearances, as sound and hearty as ever.
Uncle Abe then picked up his corn sack and
made a trail of corn back to tbe house, but
tbe hogs did not follow, seeming to prefer the
flesh of tbe snakes to tbe com. Ever since
then the drove of hogs have remained in the
mountain, coming home only to get a change
j of food, and where once no man dared to
tread there is now not a rattlesnake to be
found. The pigs had cleaned them out.
Uncle Abe save there were not less than five
hundred rattlesnakes killed in that single
fight, and not one bog was hurt. Ciuciaiiau

Another story which Gen, Sheridan was
fond of telling at tbe dinner table, after tbe
I coffee had been served and the ladies had re

There was a xealous chaplain of tbe Army
of the Potomac, who bad called on a colonel,
noted for his profanity, to talk of tbe reug
! ions intereste of bis men. After baring been
politely motioned to a seat on the chest, the
chaplain began:
'Colonel, you have one of the finest regi
ments in tbe army.
"1 believe so," said tne colonel in reply.
"Do you think," pursued the chaplain.
l "that you pay sufficient attention to tbe re
ligions instruction of your menr
'-Well, I don't know," doubtfully replied
tbe colonel.
'A lively interest has been awakened is
the Massachusetts," tbe parson went on
to say. "The Lord has blessed the labors of
his servants, and ten have already been bap
tized."
'is that sor excitedly cried the colonel.
and then turning to tbe attendant, added

IntoUigetK of Whale.
Whales are very human and very knowing.
t o. 1 have seen those gigantic whale moth
ers sporting with their calves and rolling in
clumsy play with them within pistol shot of
the schooner. A whale has some senses finer
than ours. They seem to have some sort of
electric communication between them.
though for apart. At times, if one whale,
though half a mile from his companions, is
struck, the rest seem instantly to know it,
and dash madly off. A whale in swimming
leaves a slight ooxe or streak of oil behind on
the water's surface. The whalers call it the
"slick. Now, this "slick does afford some
sort of communication to the whale when it
is touched by any foreign substance, and tbe
whalemen in their boats will avoid crossing
it wben they see it, for it seems as if it con
veyed warning to a whale they are desirous
of approaching.
The "calf" sometimes lagged a few yards
behind the "cow" while our boatjuwere in
chase, and if by accident our boat header put
his iron into that calf the mother instantly
knew it, and then, and not till then, would
she turn furiously on tbe boat. Wben she
was roused man was no match at all for
for her. For wounding her calf a "cow"
chased one of our boats ashore, and for an
hour she lay "on and off,n blockading their
port of safety and waiting for them to put
off, that she Slight have another whack at
tbem. They did not put off until aha had
gone. Freutice Muliord in ISew York Star.
