couldn't ketch him. 1 took General

Jim out. General Lee ia a cur with a

and Stoni wall la a half hound

at the fence to see what the coon did

under the fence, turned around and
came out a rabbit. All the niggers got
scared. They took it Into their heads
l was chasing my grandfather's ghoat.
The thing did look kinder curious, but
I made up my mind to ketch him any
how, though Jim's corn was safe in the
crib and mine wasn't,
"I wore out both dogs, and had to fall
back on curs. Curlike, when the coon
went under the fence and the rabbit
came out, they lit off after him, yelping
like they were trailing a box car full
of coons. I went home powerful mad at
cur dogs. Next nighl I w ent again with
curs, 'cause I was lraund to keep things
lively. It took holt of me to ketch thot
oon like a leech takes holt of a rot

he curs got in a fight with him under
the fence, and T busted his brnins out
with a club before he had time to lick
thera and get away.
"The thing seemed simple enmigli
after I found out, but it showed how
uch sense a he coon can have. A rab
bit had his bed under the fence, into
which the coon ran when he got tired
poking fun at me and my dogs. Nat
urally, the rabbit got out, and in doing
so brushed his rides against the mouth
if the bed. Itabbit scent among wild
animate ia like goat scent among tame
ones. It's rank. At the first sniff both
dogs were completely fooled. . After
the curs made a moonlight meal on tbe
rabbit trailing was easy. What I want
to know is how In thunder Mr. Coon
found out he was safe in a rabbit bed
and that General Lee and Stonewall
Jackson wouldn't cross a rabbit trail
I took the coon home and let General
Lee and Stonewall Jackson smell him.
They stuck their tails between their
lege and sneaked off with their bellies
close to the ground. Both are ashamed
to look anybody in the face. While I
was hunting all night and sleeping nil
dny November rains jave my corn the
sprouts. One look at the meal made my
wife so mad that I had to swear off coon
hunting to pacify her." N. V. 8un.

We hear less about Portugal than
about Spain at any time, and of late
have heard leas than usual. The queeu
of Portugal is a sovereign deserving a
long mark for her interest in hospitals
and hygiene, and also in the welfare of
the children of poverty, says HanerV
Weekly. At Alcantara she founded, in
1393, a dispensary peculiarly for meet
Ing the demands of childish Invalids
as pleasantly situated aa possible, and
spaciously planned, combining a diet
kitchen, consultation rooms, surgical
hall and - much of the departmental
work of a hospital. Almost every day
the queen herself goes to the establish
ment and take a personal share in the
labors of the charity, now waiting in
the kitchen distributions, and again
assisting In the surgery.
Several well-known women of her
court are equally practical. The gen

there were given in the building 8,551)

diet kitchen, 33.S21 bandagings, 76,480
presciptions and 470 vaccinations. The

The present dearth of lobster In
New England waters ia largely due to
the enormous number of undersized
ones that have in the past been caught
and sold for canningpurposesin Maine.
Millions of small shellfish that should
have been allowed to. develop and breed ,
were -thin annually exterminated, and
the result has been that the supply of
eatable lobsters has dwindled from 30,
000,000 in 1889 to probably less than.
5,000,000 In 1899.
The regulation concerning the cap
ture of lobsters in New England water
are now aa stringent aa any game law.
No lobsters are being canned Is
Maine for the reason that the short roa
ster law has- killed the business in that
state. The canners do not find it profit
able to buy lobsters at the present high
rate,' and they cannot purchase short
ones or shellfish weighing lea than test
For the last four year energetic ef
forts have been made by the United
States fish commission to restore lob
sters to their former abundance - by
planting millions of lobster fry from
Fisher's Island sound east along the
coast as far as Maine. Meantime the
chief supply of live lobsters comes from
the British provinces. The shellfish
are shipped here in steamers especially
fitted with wells that have a capacity,
for holding from 15.000 to 20,000 live
lobsters. These steamers touch at Bos

cities the lobsters ore shipped by whole

"While I was in Washington laat-

night, "I saw something which fairly
gave me cold shivers. e were sitting
in the street car, and in the seat just be
side me sat one of the handsomest
women In all Washington, a tall, well-
developed, well-groomed ereature of
perhaps 30, with dark-rimmcd eyes aT
bronze-tinted hair. I knew her for the
widow of a man who was something or
other in the state department under
the Cleveland administration, I believe.
I know she lives in a dainty apartment
the newer part of the northwest
quarter. There was a man with her
on the car, a mere boy of a fellow, and
he gazed at her with admiring eyes.
There was a hint of chilliness in the air.
and the woman shrugged her hand
some shoulders.
'Myl' said she, 'I'm afraid I'm tak

'Then the car started, and the empty

Quite without any purpose whatever, I

Destruction ol Niagara Falls.
The announcement that a ledge of
rook, has fallen, making Niagara fall
once more a "U"-shnped cataract, mark
another step In the process which,
sooner or later; will result, it Is pre
dicted, in the total destruction of the
falls. The terriflo force of the water,
falling over a precipice 150 feet high,
gradually wear away the soft lime
stone underlying the harder strata over
which Mt runs, so that year by year
the top of the falls recede. In the
llast ISO years some parts of the fall a
have receded 190 feet. In 1650 the
famous Table Bock, which had been
la feature of the failB for years, waa
obliterated. At the present rate ot
progress it will be hundreds of years
before the great falls will be degraded
I to the level of an ordinary riffle. Chi
