SEAXJTIFUIj deer found dead
UNDER ITS RIDER.
Hunter's Legs Were So Long That He
I Ran, Not Walked, with Jt, and
the Animal , Was Fright
ened to Death,' r.
f "When I was working in the lumber,
.woods at Cross Forks, on Pine creek,"
Eaid a man from Potter county. Pa.,
to a New York Sun reporter,, "a man
named George Briggs came over from
Cortland, N...Y and wanted to get a
live deer. This was .before the rail
roads and tanneries came into that
part of the hemlock belt, and deer
were more than, plenty. Jule Critten
den was running things at Cross Forks
and he volunteered to get Briggs the
.deer. ' , .
"Jule scattered a number of his men
about in the woods," told me to hitch
p a team, to follow the road through
the' woods with him, and then put the
dogs out to start a deer. They were
mot long doing it The deer came to
the road some ' distance ahead of our
team. We put the' whip to the horses
and chased it all the way to the ford
of the creek at Cross Forks, the shout
ing of the men in the woods and, the
yelping of the dogs, keeping it in the
' road.
v "The deer took a course up the creek
tett the ford. The men scared it back,
; though, and it ran into a big laurel
: patch. We bad stopped the team, and
i it was standing in the road, with Crit
; ienden and, me both in the wagon,
while the dogs chased the deer out past
the team. As it was bounding by Crit
tenden, leaped from the wagon and
tame 'down astride the deer.
' "Crittenden was a man with - extra
ordinarily long legs and as he landed
on the deer his, feet touched the
ground on each Bide, thus preventing
fhis weight from breaking the deer
do-qrn, and enabling it to move on its
; way. This it did for only a few paces,
though, when it came to a standstill,
Crittenden's long legs and his clutch
,on the deer keeping It, on its feet,
j When, the deer stopped' Crittenden hol
ilered to me:
i've got him! Hurry here with
the halter strap!'
'T got the halter strap out of the
htvagon, and ran to where Crittenden
was holding the deer and I noticed
l . 4 ft- '
"I'VE GOT HIM!" . ,
'something peculiar about the animal,
nd I said to Crittenden:
t " 'Why,' Jule, the deer is dead!"
, " 'Like fun it is!' said Crittenden,
"holding on to the deer with a tight
Vlutch. 'Halter it, I tell you. or it'll
brow me and get away!
"v 'You get off,' said I, 'and I tell you
'the deer will fall over!'
I "He got off of the deer and it tum
bled to the ground as dead as a stone.

deer ,hunt was the standing of a dog
on a runway and the driving of a deer
to it by the hunter, instead of putting
the hunter on the runway and letting
the dos do the driving. It worked to
a charm- and they took the deer in and
delivered" it to Briggs. ;
"I don't know what there was about
the man, but in less than half an hour
he had that deer so tame fresh as it
was from its wilderness haunts, where
it was wild and unapproachable that
it would follow him anywhere; and the
last we saw of Briggs and the deer he
was on his way to York state,,, taking
the public road, the deer following
close at his heels and munching sweet
apples that he fed it now and then as
they marched along." ;
ON EASY PAYMENT TERMS.
San Lam, a Hoosier Chinaman, Fays
$300 for a Bride in 102 Weekly
: Payments.
Young man, don't be a clam. Buy a
wife on the installment plan. That's
what San Lam, an almond" eyed Celes
tial of Kokomo, Ind., has just done,
and an American Is as good as ,a
Chinaman any day. ;
San Lam came to America as a b6y,
and until he was 18 years old lived ia
"the quarter" at San Francisco. Then
he came east and located at Kokomo.
But life in Kokomo was lonesome, and
San longed for a wife. ' He knew that
there were plenty of wives to be found
in "the quarter", in San Francisco, but'
he' had been there, and there was only
one girl there to his mind. Pitti Lung
was only 15, but her eyes were like
sloes and her hair like jet Her
cheeks were pink and her teeth like
little Chint!be pearls. ' 1
San Lam "longed for : Pittl Lung.
Pitti longed not for San. So San went
"HOW MUCH FOR PITTI LUNG?"
to her guardian, a wrinkled, yellow old
Chinaman, with huge iron spectacles.
"How much for Pitti Lung?" asked
San Lam, .
. "So and so and so and so," said th.3
wrinkled, yellow old guardian. So and
so and so and so in Chinese meant $300
in United States.
"I pay thlee dol elevly week?" said
San, who had read the advertisements
in the newspapers. 1 ,
The yellow, wrinkled old Chinaman
nodded. They killed a white chicken
and the bargain was sealed. .
"jEvery week San Lam bought a ?.T
money order at the Kokomo post office
and mailed It In aA envelope to th-)
yellow, wrinkled old Chinaman.
One hundred and two Kokomo mon
ey orders went to San Francisco, and
recently San Lam went himself to
claim his bride. He bought her on the
installment plan, and if he Ms enter
prising he may furnish a home on the
installment plan; but he will have to
pay cash' for shark An and birds' nest
soup. , " ; '
Should Not Wear Belts.
To those who, fortunately, possess a
"perfect figure" the advice is tendered:
Do not wear a waist belt, as this simply

Brigham H. Roberta on Stand
In Smoot Investigation.
PROBED FOR CHURCH SECRETS.,
Witness Testified TliRt Wli Were
' Kept In Ignorance F"or Yean of
Floral Marrtagre So aa Not
to Embiirran Them.
WASHINGTON, April 21. What may
be termed the second round of the
Roed Smoot contest ha been opened
before the senate committee on privi
leges and elections.
Brigham H. Roberts, the first wit
ness, was questioned regarding his of-1
licial connection with the Mormon
church. Mr. Roberts said he was elect
ed one of the first seven- presidents In
1888 and entered politics about 1880.
He explained his candidacy for con
gress and the opposition that had de
veloped. from Mormon sources.
He said the church had opposed the
election of high officials of the church
to membership of the constitutional
convention and that he had consented
not to -urge his candidacy. Mr. Rob
erts was 'defeated the first time he ran
for congress, but was eleeted the sec
ong time, the church oppositioh having
been withdrawn.
Mr. Roberts said he' had three wives
one married in 1877, the second in
1SS0 and the third in 1890. He has
had children by all of. the wives and by
the first plural wife since his election
to congress. He thought the last child
was born three or four years ago.
Senator Overman ; inquired ; of Mr.
Roberts whether his first wife "and his
second wife had consented to his third
wife.' : t
"No, sir," said Mr. , Roberts, adding
that they did not learn of the marriage
for three or four years.
"How is that?" asked Senator Bev
eridge. ''Do you mean to say that the
marriage was not known to any one?"
"it was . anown to some oi my
friends, but not to my wives," was the
answer. '
"Why was this marriage concealed
from them?" asked Chairman Bur
rows. . ; ''
"Because I did not want to embar
rass them." '":.J-ry
"How embarrass them?" h 'j':':"J'.,
"Well, we knew the marriage Was il
legal, and it might be embarrassing to
them if they should for any reason be
called on to testify." - ,
, Mr. Roberts said his third wife was
the divorced wife "of Dr. Shipp, and of
his courtship he said he. always had
met her at the house of mutual
friends and had' never' called oh . her at
her home.. He also said that she con
tinued to live in her home, but that he
never had called on her until she re
moved to rooms on Main street, Salt
Lake City.
Mr. Tayler asked Mr. Roberta if he
knew that Maggie Shipp Roberts lived
in a house where lived her divorced
husband and two of his wives. Mr.
Roberts said he was not aware ef that
fact"- ,.v: ,,
Chairman B.urrows" desired to 'know
whether Mr. Wells knew the witness
bad a wife living when he married the
ttiird wife.'. '
"He did," said Roberta. '?He married
me to my second wife."
' Mr. Pettus asked if the church ever
bad reprimanded him or the high offi
cial who performed the ceremony. Mr.
Roberts said nothing had been said to
him. 7 , ' :r,'..;y ..
Mr. Tayler asked Mr.1 Roberts "why
be thought it incumbent upon him to
take plural wives. "From boyhood,"
replied the wltaesa, "I had been taught
the rightfulness of plural marriages,
and I believed this practice to be the
law of God. I knew that this practice
was contrary to the mandates of con
gress, but believed that the law of God.
was the highest rule, and" I felt im
pelled to obey it."
"What if you should ; inform the
church that you regarded your duty to
the state above that to , the church?
Would the attitude of the. church be
one of hostility?"
"I cannot believe there would be any
action taken politically." . , n ,
Resuming cross examination and
quoting from the record of the testi
mony of E. B. Critchlow, Mr. Van Cott
asked Mr. Roberts if he ever had stat
ed to Mr. Critchlow that he had a vi
sion of his dead ancestors which in
duced him to change his attitude to
ward the rule pertaining' to permis
sion to run for office. Mr.' Roberts said
he mever.had made such a statement.
Hfc also said he never stated that he
had seen his ancestors in perdition and
that they could not go through the
temple and be baptized unless he con
formed to the wishes of the church.
The witness said he had been through
the endowment house; that the endow
ment house oath or ceremony was now
performed in 'the temple:" ;, f
"Can you ttfll us in regard to this cer
emony?" asked Chairman Burrows.
"I cannot. I do not feel at-liberty to
do so. I consider myself in trust and
not at liberty to disclose what takes
place."
Mr. Roberts said that the obligations
were secret, and he .thought them not
unlike the oaths of the Masonic order
or other secret societies.
"What would happen if you did re
veal what took place within the tenaP'
pie?" asked the chairman.
"I would lose caste and be regarded
as betraying a trust. If I keep faith, J.
cannot' disclose w't takes place."
"Then," pursued Chairman Burrows,
"any person who takes th endowment
house obligation in under oath not to
reveal Its nature?"
"I think sol" ' '
"And Senator Smoot could not reveaS
his oath of that character?"
The witness nodded his head in ac--quiescence.

JAPS' FLANK MOVE
Kuropatkin Reports Trans
port Fleet Off, Potinsa.
RUSSIANS WILL MAKE A HARD FIGHT
Ciar'i Chief la Aware o( Strateglfl
Importance of Taknahan Poal
tloB liarKe Force Landed .
at Newchwang.
LONDON, April 21. A St Peters
burg dispatch says what may( turn out
to be the anticipated flanking move
ment of the Japanese troops is the ap
pearance of a number of Japanese
ships off Potinsa, near the gulf of
Chingtaitse, as reported to the emperor
by General Kuropatkin. Military . ex
perts here have long regarded that vi
cinity as the probable point of disem
barkation of the second Japanese expe
dition. It is not far away from Taku
shan, twelve miles to the east, and con
nects by road with Port Arthur, 150
miles to the southwest, and Fenghuan
cheng, fifty miles to the northwest,
where the Russians will make their
first obstinate resistance.
Though the Japanese are building in
trenchments on the Yalu, it is believed
that they will advance soon. .The ar
rangements for a turning movement
are complete, and experts say that such
a movement could properly begin at
Takushan, as Penghuancheng lies at
the angle of an equilateral triangle,
with Takushan and the Yalu as bases.
. The Japanese ' disembarkation will
undoubtedly be covered by warships,
and the Russians recognize that it will
be impossible .to prevent it.
"We will strike after they have land
ed," grimly 'said a member of the gen
eral staff. 1
General Kuropatkin is aware of the
strategic Importance of the vicinity of
Takushan, and It is understood that he
has made arrangements accordingly.
A report from Seoul says the Japa
nese authorities admit, that . constant
skirmishing is occurring between the
opposing armies on the Yalu river.
They say that no decisive action has
taken place up to date, though news of
such an engagement is expected at any
moment.
It is believed that the Russians now
have 50,000 men on the Yalu river.
The Japanese consul at Wonsan
(Gensan) telegraphs that a Buddhist
priest Is the only Japanese who remain
ed at Songjln, on Plaksin bay, in the
northeast of Korea, at which place the
Russians are reported to have burned
the Japanese . residences and to have
destroyed other property belonging to
Japanese. ;
s !A dispatch from St. Petersburg says
that a large Japanese force has landed
near Newchwang.
A St. Petersburg report says General
Kuropatkin intimated that he intends
to await the arrival of another 100,000
men before risking a battle ' with the
Japanese.
