In frr. 8ts4 t erwtrl.l DESTRUCTION OF ARCH ROCK, SAN FRANCISCO BAY. Qrlm, Gray and Picturesque Pinnacle Terror to the Mariner-Has lieena Menace to Navigation, Kver Bince the Iter of '40. Shag rock No. 1 And Sling rock No. 2 lu San Francisco having befU d.sposed of, contractors are now busily engaged in work preliminary to the demolition of the still more tamous Arch rock In the same maritime thoroughfare. The forty-ulrier cannot recall the day when this picturesque menace to navigation was not anathematized by the sailor man. Many a time its destruction has been suggested, and Its demolition would have been accomplished long ago but for the sentimental oppo sition of a few veteran Califoruiaus who hated to see their odd-looking old friend disappear forever. Residents of Sausallto have always been particular ly averse to its destruction, their cry always being that It was one of the sights of the bay. Eventually contin ued agitation by pilots and others In terested In shipping bore fruit, and now Arch rock must follow In the way of the two others. In early days of California's history It was a favorite amusement for young men to wait for an unusually low tide and then pull a boat through the arch. So far as Is known the first time this feat was accomplished was lu 1857, when Captain Frank Murphy, one of the best known pilots of his day, rowed a small boat through. For a few years the daring trip was occasionally made or attempted, but eventually a couple of young fellows. In trying to do the trick, were dashed against the arch by the heavy swell. The boat was smash ed and the young men lost their lives. Since that time rowboats bare given Arch rock a wide berth. Frank Boyd, a noted pilot of the Cali fornia coast, voiced the opinion of all men In his profession when be called Arch rock a dangerous spot, and said It should have been blown up long ago. hen they come to survey that spot," he said, "they will find every inch of ground In the vicinity of Arch rock covered with anchors and chains. Pnnature anil i1oAn.vta .liln. h ..... " ..... auifa mj tut? j ARCH ROCK, SAN hundred have come within an ace of going on the rock and had to slip their anchors In order to get clear. The first vessel that I remember being wrecked on Arch rock," continued Cap tain Boyd, "was the pilot-boat Sea Witch. That was In 1&3. All the pilots had 'boarded off and the schoon er was coming In tn charge of the boat keeper. There was a dense fog and the boatkeeper mistook Arch rock for a sloop under sail and getting his course accordingly made the mistake of his life. All hands were saved, but the Sea Witch was a total loss. "The next wreck was that of the clipper ship Flying Dragon In the win ter of 18G1-C2. She made the fastest run on record from Newcastle, N. S. W, thirty-five days, and anchored off Melggs wharf. Captain Watson, the well-known marine surveyor, was In command of the vessel, but the pilot was still In charge when the accident happened. A sudden change of wind and a fierce squall drove the Flying Dragon down on the rock and she be came a total loss. "The next vessel lost on the rock was the bark Autocrat in 18i9. She was loaded with coal and drifted down to her doom In a dense fog. Since that time numberless vessels have made the acquaintance of Arch rock and always to ineir aisaavantage. The old ferry boat Clinton went on one of its ledges In a fog and the steamer Oregon, now running between the sound and Nome, lost her bilges on it The old bark Columbia stuck on It for a day and a night, and. last of all, the bark Cey lon drifted down on it a few months ago and was saved by the quarantine steamer Sternberg. As It was the Cey lon lost all her sheathing. It would take t page to give the number of ves sels that have Just escaped going on Arch rock by slipping their cables, and when the contractors come to boring I'll guarantee they will find more chain and anchors than rock." FOUGHT A FIERCE GRIZZLY. Plate Indian Klllei the Have Brute with Only Knife. The California grizzly bear has been one of the most powerful and uncon querable beasts ever known to the Western pioneer. A meeting with him has usually brought death to the hardy adventurer who dared enter the en counter, or even stand in his way when bruin came crashing through the un derbrush. Other bears are met with confidence and dispatched with a steady aim, but when a grizzly comes thunder ing down the bowlders, tearing off trees in his superbly undevlatlng course, shaking the mountain side wlty his half ton of savage bulk, the nerves of man have to be strong Indeed to withstand the spectacle. There Is death In the red Jaws, ripping and tearing In the powerful claws, strength to dash a man's bead from bis body at a blow from one of the huge forelegs. Coming bead-on, he is like all savage creation turned loose. He Is usually more than mortal can face; only the prptornatur ally brave and reckless court death and defy the fates by daring to stand and flgbt when be comes. Yet a few days knife, met and overcome one of these monsters. : The Indian Was living at lust accounts, but the bear was dead. Mustang is the Indian's name. Ue and another Piute were out in a tre mendously wild region of the Ileteh lletohy valley aud when descending the bed of a gorge they almost ran Into the Jaws of the largest grimly they had ever seen. Mustaug aud his companion tired their rifles at the brute, but the two shots produced no tuoro effect In arresting the bear's charge than would the throwing of a pebble against the wind stop a cyclone. Mustaug was a step In ndvauce of his companion and bruin reached him first, knocking his gun one way and him the other. The companion climbed a tree. Mustang pluuged his kulfe to the handle into the shaggy monster, slashed it again and again across bis rough hide, ripped aud cut until blood poured from a doxen gashes In the herculean carcass; then be fell under a crushing blow from one of the spiked paws and lay quivering on the rocks with the bear tearing strips of hide from bis back and chew ing his arms and shoulders to a pulp. Meantime Mustang's friend was vain ly trying to get his rifle luto working order. It had been injured when he climbed the tree. From morning till night this condition lasted. The bear soon left the mangled remains of Mus tang and lumbered tn red vengeance over to the tree where perched the other Indian. After trying lu vain to climb he limped back to Mustang, but before he could tear the man to pieces the Indian, who was by no means dead yet. drove the knife Into his enemy's vitals. The bear staggered off a few yards and then, overcome by the fear of death which comes Instinctively to all animals, staggered down the gorge. but fell for good In a few minutes. As sistance soon reached Mustang, who was eared for by cunulng medicine men of his own race. -. Does Not Come with Age. A medical man has discovered that neither In youth nor old age Is a man likely to make the biggest fool of him self. Extreme youth usually is consid ered not to have arrived at the dignity of years of discretion, yet a homely proverb would have us believe that there is no fool like an old fool" This medical observer has broached the theory that there Is an "aberration period of middle life," between the ages of 57 and C2. "If," be says, "a FRANCISCO BAY. j careful examination be made of the preventable disasters of the last twenty years anu or the ages of those who were held responsible by the verdict of mankind for such lamentable Issues there will be found a strange coinci dence In the rage of their ages." Here Is an interesting and practically Inexhaustible field for Investigation. Politicians who are "agMn" the govern ment" may trace the blunders of an administration to the sinister Influence of some boss who was passing through the fatal period at the time, and "re grettable Incidents" of all kinds. In war or peace, may be traced to their true origin. In time, no doubt. w shall appreciate the necessity of requir ing an pumic men, on entering the fatal period, to take a five years' bolldav anil to resume work only when they have passed the age of aberration. New York Press. Dissipated Hailstorms. "An effort Is being made In Prune tn dissipate hailstorms by firing cannon at me ciouus," writes Consul Covert to the State Department from Lyons. "Fifty two cannon, manned by one hundred and four cannoneers and their chiefs, have been distributed over on area nf twenty-five acres of rich vlneland. A nign point in the vlneland to be covered by the experiments were uplm-toA a , central post of observation and a sig nal coae adopted under which, when a shot Is heard from the central post all the cannon are fired, at twice a minute and more slowly after the first tea shots.

In the neigh boring communes the people saw col umns of flame rise three hundred toot above the cannon when the shots were fired." Beyond Him. Matthew Arnold, next to Whistler, was perhaps the most colossal egotist of bis time. After bis return to London from his first lecturing tour In America, he vis ited old Mrs. Proctor, widow of the poet "Barry Cornwall." and mother of Adelaide Proctor. Mrs. Proctor, who was then 80 years old, In giving Mr. Arnold a cup of tea, asked him. "And what did they say about yon In America'" "Well," said the literary autocrat, "they said I was conceited, and they said my clothes did not fit me." "Well, now," said the old lady, " think they were mistaken as to the clothes." New World. Papa Waa Wearing the Laundry.
