grew up as a result of the civil war

THE ! COW WAS CURIOUS.
She Visited a Saloon , a Store and a
Hotel 1 During Her Promenade.
The proverbial bull in the china
shop was literally outclassed last
night by a re'wll1oufcow \ that broke
away from Its herd and raided two
stores and a botch near Sixteenth and
The cow belonged to a herd which
was being driven east on Market
street. When the anlmc.l reached
Seventeenth and Market streets , the
cow became stubborn and refused to
follow its companionR. It troth : ! ; away
and before the drovers could stop It
entered the saloon of Edward Cronin
at 1618 Market streeL
There were sixteen or eighteen men
lined up around the bar , and when
"Sookie" ' strolled calmly in many or
them imagined that a friend of the
nether gillni : : had taken now form.
There was a wild scamper and the
place was deserted In a minute. After
knocking n few glasses tram the bar
the cow left ) the place
It then calmly strolled Into the dry f
gOQc1s store at 1616 Market Atrcet A
number ofwomen were In the store
shopping , and those that wore red
dodged out of sight In the twinkling
of an e'e. ; Then the others followed
within a minute Inter.
Then the cow left the store and
sauntered Into the woman's entrance . .
to the Keystone hotel , a few doors
away. Night Clerk Hoff threw up
his hands and fled. The animal 'S alkb

scattered the guests in the dining
room. In the kitchen three women
cooks dropped pans and dishes and
skipped out of "Sookie's" way
Then the cow tried to go npRt.alra.
The staircase was narrow , however ,
and It became fast about half.way up.
With the help of several men the cow
was pulled downstairs by its tall.
