THE STORY OF A DOG.
WHY A SOLITARY WAYSIDE GRAVE IS
tOSt Kuh' In Wild, of Western New
Mexico Wa. Traced by the FaUhfal Ca-lne-Be
Kled the Abductor andtcd
the Father to a Coyote'. Den.
The tourist who visits the region of
Lowcr Haza, N. SI., will see, among
other thmgs, as he drives along the trail
from th railroa.lagrave with a thick
headboarcl on which is painted the one
"It's only a doS's grave," the guide
will exi.lain, "but I reckon he'd more
sense th tn some men." k
riiantom was the propcrtv of Bernard
Isnpr- a cowboy living ,I0ar the Datii
motmtans some years ago, but he was
buried near the home of Daniel Oiap
man, w lose wife was the sister of Tis
ner 5Jrs. Cliapman, when her brother
first got the dog. had a hearty dislike for
Jt. It vas a big mongrel, with hound
Wood i redomii.ating, and. like all mon
grel aoands, it lmd an enormous appe
tite tin t was never so well satisfied as
with f o. i1 stolen from somebody's kitchen
For many offenses of this kind Mrs
Chapm m had good reason to complain
and she would have taken the Winches
ter and shot the hateful brute on more
than ore occasion but for two reasons.
It was i very good hunting dog, and it
would now and then play with tin; baby
when s ie wanted to do housework come
over f -om her brotljers house a mile
awaya-iif for the express purpose of hav
ing a r imp witli the littlo tot of 3.
However, thedog's manner kept grow
ing wc rse, and one day when she saw it
come sneaking around tho corral she
startei. for the gun, but stopped half way
because she was reminded by the sight of
the do,' that the little one had not been
about tho house for an hour or two, per
haps i lore, so far as she could remem
ber. So she ran out of the house quickly
witho it the gun and called aloud:
Then she listened and grew faint, for
she hard no reply, and fainter still
when she remembered that her husband
had -old her of seeing a panther's
tr-.ck s down in tho hollow near by.
To think of this was to send hi r flying
toward the hollow, but. no baby or
trace of it was to be found, although
she h oked behind every one of the scat
tered pines and cedars growing there.
Then she came running back to the
house, ringing her hands and calling
"Baly" distractedly. She found the
dog r-tanding right beside the door, but
she would not have noticed him, she
was so near wild about the baby, only
for t io fact that he stood looking in
tently at her instead of taking to his
heels with his tail between his legs, as
he always done when she came toward
E en ns it was she paid little attention
to tie dog, but ran hither and yon about
the house and corral and horse shed,
cryi lg and calling the child, until at
last she saw the dog come square before
her, and after a grave look into her face
star; running around the house with his
nose to the ground. She remembered
afterward that he circled around the
home two or three times and then dis
app ;ared, but by that time her fears had
so overcome her that she fell headlong
on 1 he floor in a faint, and there she lay
nobody knows how long.
When she came to her senses, the dog
was licking her face, and at once began
to t ajier about and bark in extraordinary
fashion when she opened her eyes and
sat up. Then he ran out the door and
sto ped and looked back, and directly
car ie back and grabbed the skirt of her
drt as, which he pulled so hard that he
tore it. Then she picked up a club and
dri ve the dog out tho house, and when
her burst of anger was over fainted
asain at the thought of the lost baby.
W;ien she revived this time, she was too
weak to get up, but she saw that the dog
wts still acting in the same unusual
fat hion she had noticed before. A little
later the sound of horse's hoofs gladden
ed her ears, and with a last effort she
got up, staggered out the door, saw her
husband as he jumped from his horse,
and, gasping out the words that "Baby
is lost," fainted for the third time.
Chapman carried the woman to the
bf d, took ono look around the room in
order to assure himself that he had
rightly understood what she had said,
and then grabbing the Winchester said
to the dog:
"Hi, Phantom! where's Baby?"'
"Wow!"' replied the dog, and started
.rvny on a lope that kept Dan humping
h mself to equal. The trail zigzagged
a lout, for nearly half a mile, then crossed
a broken lava bed and ran off down a
draw to the creek valley. Had any other
d )g than Phantom been on the trail Dan
would have not believed the child could
have gone that way, but he banked on
Phantom and kept trotting along until
at last a thicket was reached jnst two
l ales and a half from home. Into the
thicket the dog plunged by what was
really a sort of tunnel through the brush,
i nd Chapman hud to get down on his
bands and knees to follow. Two rods in
be came to an ojiening, and there on the
dry sod lay the baby fast asleep. It was
apparently in the den of some wild ani
mal. As Dan picked up the child the growl
of tho dog made him look around.
Phantom was standing over the dead
body of a recently killed coyote.
Phantom died of old age last spring,
and was buried with many tears near
the public highway, where all who pass
can see it. It was only a dog that was
buried there; but. then, as the cowboys
say, "I reckon he'd more sense than
eomc men." Cor. New York Sun.

M'SS1LE3 FMJTHE HEAVENS. ! BRIEF MENTION I " ' f
Ililllons of Them I'all, bat Comparatively
l ew ICeacU the Earth.
"It is a mistake to suppose that mete
orites burst in the proper sense of the
word," said a scientis t to a writer. "But
'it often happens that they are broken to
pieces on striking the atmosphere of the
earth. Tins may seem surprising, but
let me call your attention to an analogy.
Strike the surface of water with your
fist, and, though a fluid, the resistance it
opposes to the blow seems almost as
strong as if it were solid. Now, the me
teorite is moving at a tremendous rate of
speed. If small, it is set on fire in an in
stall by the friction of the air, and after
glowing for a moment brightly is con
sumed. "On any night in summer you will
see 'shooting stars' now and then. They
are meteorites, which on coming into
contact with the earth's atmosphere are
set afire. This is ikH surprising, inas
much as they approach the planet on
which we live at a s2oed which often at
tains I I miles a second. By causing the
destruction of meteorites the atmosphefie
serves as a protection for jM-ople on the
globe, who would otherwise be jielted
by such i::is. iles to a dangerous extent.
It is estimated that not less than 10,000,
000 of them, big enough to be visible to
the naked eye, strike tho earth every 24
"By contact with this planet the me
teorites are raised to a temperature which
reaches from ;i,000,000 to 4.000,000 de
greeshigh enough to consume the hard
est known substance almost instantly.
Thus only those of large size reach tho
earth before being entirely burned np.
The greatest number of such bodies can
be seen just before daybreak, because by
that tune we are on the front side of the
globe as it moves through space. The
elevation at which most of them are vis
ible has been found to be between 45 and
t0 miles, very few being seen at a greater
height than 100 miles.
"It is believed by most astronomers
that some very large meteors have en
tered our atmosphere and have passed
out into space again, their great mo
mentum being sufficient to take them
away from the earths attraction. What
these flying bodies are is a question that
has been much disputed, but it is con
sidered mo.-t likely that they are the
debris of broken up comets. In ono re
cent instance the correctness of this the
ory has found striking proof. That was
the case of the comet of Biela. It was
discovered in ISl'O and was again ob
served in 1S;;, ifyiTt and W2. In 184." it
had split into two parts, and in 1S72 it
failed to apiiear when and where It
should have done. Evidently it had been
smashed up, and prediction was made
that there would be a great meteoric
shower composed of the remains of the
lost comet. This prediction was fulfilled
"Certain groups of meteors move in
elliptical orbits around the sun. Occa
sionally the earth passes through their
clusters, producing what are known as
meteoric showers. Such showers occur
annually from the 0th to the 12th of Au
gust, and there is a similar display ir
November once every S:i years. The
stream of the August meteors is esti
muted to be from n.i.KW.OdO to 10,000.000
miles thick. The earth, though travel
ing with tho velocity of 2.000,000 miles a
day. is immersed in it for several days.
"The fall of meteorites to the earth is
sometimes accompanied by a great dis
play of light, occasionally illuminating
an area of many thousand square miles.
When such an event occurs at night, and
with loud detonations, so great in some
instances as'to shake liousts and fright
en men and animals, the explosions are
caused by the breuking np of the me
teor. Ordinarily you will find that such
meteoric bodies are coated on the out
side with a black substance, which is
the effect merely of fusion of the super
ficial material by great heat. A piece of
Biela's comet was actually picked up in
Mexico in 1872 at the time of the showei
of its remains. Naturally it is consid
"Such great interest is taken in mete
orites that all of those collected have
lieen carefully catalogued. They are
mostly composed of iron, with usually a
percentage of nickel and cobalt and
sometimes copper and tin. It is customary-
to saw them into slices, which is a
laborious process, for sale or for ex
change among museums. Sometimes
the slices are prettily polished, or the cut
surfaces are etched with acid so as to ex
pose the crystalline structure. This
structure is in no two such bodies exact
ly the same, and the differences are
thought well worth studying. Attempts
have been made to counterfeit meteor
ites because they are so valuable, but
without success." Washington Star.
