A leter from Denver, Col., says: "Bill Farley, an old frontiersman, has just returned to this city after an absence of lour months in the Medicine Bow country, whither he departed on a prospecting tour in company with James Wilson and Jake Schurz, whose terrible fate in an encounter with a grizzly he relates in detail. It has been a common belief for years that rich placer deposits lay along the Little Pass Creek, just south of Elk Mountain, and last fall the trio started out in search of the hidden gold. After having lo cated themselves, and and erected a permanent tent, they discovered that they had a huge grizzly bear as a near-by neighbor. Bruno contented himself for a night with prowling about the camp, but as time wore on the frequency of his nocturnal visits suggested the ad visability of getting rid of him in some way, and various plans were put forward. A hunt was pro posed, but Schurz protested against it, promising that the bear would depart for "fresh fields and pastures new," if let alone. Two traps were set for him, however, but in both cases he extracted the bait without being caught, and Schurz's prediction not being ful filled, the prospectors grew alarmed. One night as the men were lazily reclining on their blankets, plotting to ambush the bear and kill him, a sound of some heavy body moving through the under brush was heard, and looking in the direction whence the noise came they saw old bruin slowly making his way toward them. The men had thrown their rifles aside, and unfortunately if they moved the bear would be upon them before they could reach their weapons. Farley and Schurz had a pistol each however, while "Wil son was only armed with a bowie knife. To attack the grizzly with these weapons, however, was perilous, but to remain there hoping to be passed by unnoticed was more so. After a hurried conversation it was decided that Farley and Schurz should crawl out beneath the rear flap of the tent, make a detour of the camp to where the guns were, and then open fire on their unwelcome visitor, while Wilson remained concealed in the tent. They had hardly gone a half dozen yards, however, when Far ley accidentally stepped upon a twig, which broke with a loud re port. The grizzly fell back on his hind quarters, uttered a furious growl, and made for the tent on a run, and almost before the two men could realize it he had broken throngh the canvas and was on the inside. They saw immediately that they could be of no use to their unfortunate companion in his strug gle with the bear, and they therefore took shelter in the branches of a tree near by. In the dim light of the camp-fire they saw the tent heaving with the conflict for life raging within, and while praying that Wilson would come off victoriorious a wild death cry told them that the struggle was at an end. The commotion within ceased with the fading away of the horrible echo, and the grizzly shambled out into the light. He staggered around the fire, surveyed the pool of syrup on the ground, but seemed to have no further appetite for it, and then departed as abruptly as be came. When the men re-entered their tent they found poor Wilson lit erally torn to pieces. One side of his head had been laid bare by a blow from the grizzly's paw, and the left side of the body, including the heart, had been almost torn away. The yet warm life blood covered everything around, and in the pool lay the knife with which Wilson had vainly tried to defend himself. At early daybreak the two men resolved to hunt the bear down, and followed his trail until they came to a thick underbrush, under which the animal had disappeared. Shultz, believing that the bear, having been wounded by Wilson, would not risk an encounter, en tered the brush to scare him out, Farley standing off so as to shoot him the moment he appeared. Shultz had hardly been gone five minutes on his hazardous expedi tion, when his companion was startled by a yell that fairly froze the blood in his veins. Following immediately after it came the de spairing cry, "Farlcyl My God! I'm killed!" A deathly silence, that was only broken by the splashing of a beaver's tail in one of the open dams, ensued, and Farley knew that he had lost his second partner. It was with the feeling that he was walking into the jaws of cer tain death that he entered the chaparral to seek Shultz. There was no danger, however; the bear had again fled. In a dark spot in undergrowth, to which the rays of the sun were unable to pene trate. Farley, while crawling on all fours fell over the body of Shultz. When he had recovered from the horror of the discover' he dragged the remains out into light. It was apparent from the wounds that Shultz had stumbled on the bear and received his death wound before he could make an effort to defend himself. His gun was in his right hand as if trailing it. The bear, surprised, hacl struck him on the left shoulder, tearing away clothes and flesh, and then bit him through the heart as he had Wilson, the two wounds being almost identical. Farley gave up the hunt. He carried the remains of Shultz back to camp. After having buried the two bod ies and marked the double grave, he left the country that afternoon and retraced his steps to Denver. Short Bits.

Hotel keeping andpension keep ing are the most importont indus tries in the principal cities and towns of Switzerland. Therefore, Switzerland is one of the best places in which to study human nature, if we may believe Sten- dahl, who says: "I have a pas sionate desire to know human na ture, and have a great mind to livo in a boarding house, where people cannot conceal their real characters."
