Cwnaty Hunter Tell Soma Kxperienoes
lUaatratln This Queer Fact.
"A tear cr a panther can't stand the
ti&ht cf a wolfskin at a coon skin over
coot." said an aged hunter of Sullivan
cennty, "and both also dislike the looks
ot na overcoat made of buffalo skin.
' They become enragod when they see a
Luuter striding through the woods with
a far coat on. They will start for him
tbe instant they get sight of him, and
unless he stops them with a rifle ball or
a charge of buckshot they will invaria
bly tackle him. A wolf or even a pack
cf them will always turn tail and ran
sway from a hunter that wears a wolf
skin coat, but they will chase a man
who wears a coat of any other kind of
fur and will attack him if they get a
chance. In the winters early in tbe for
ties I hunted panthers, wolves and bears,
killing a deer onoo in awhile for a
chacge, When the weather was bitter
cold, I wore a ooonskin overcoat tin til a
panther rained it, and here is what is
I killed an even dozen of panthers
and a score of wolves while wearing
that coat It was in January, 1844,
that I had to stop wearing it One very
cold morning I put on my snowshoes
arjrterte4 for the head of Kitchen's
hunt panthers and wolves. The
snow was three feet deep in the woods,
and tbe wolves and panthers were
slaughtering the deer at a frightful rate.
In a spruce ravine to the right of the
creek I saw a movement in an ever
green tree and raised my rifle for what
I thought might be a panther.
"I hadn't been standing a minute
when I heard a twig snap back of me,
and before I could turn half way round
something struck my back and drove me
forward on my hands and knees. Of
ccur&e I instantly realized that a panther
had landed on my back. It stuck its
claws into ray shoulders and began to
kick with its bind feet, snarling and
tearing at the coon skin with its teeth.
I knew in a second that the only thing
for me to do was to throw myself back
ward, and this I did at once, burying
the. panther in the snow beneath in a
The panther then started to scream, but
the snow and my weight kept it from
making much noise. It continued to
claw great rents in the coonskin coat
until I stabbed it three times in the
side, when it stopped kicking and began
to gasp. I knew that the point of the
knife had touched a vital spot o I lay
still till tbe panther stretched oat dead.
Then I got up and pulled the beast out
cf tits snow by the tail. I'd hafdly
dropped it on the surface than there was
another movement in the evergreen tree.
"This time X spied a pair of eyes on
a limb about 15 feet above the snow
and blazed away at them. A panther
tumbled out began to pitch and dive in
the snow, soon turning op its toes. Then
I pulled oS the overcoat and discovered
that the panther, had ruined it The
claws hadn't touched my flesh, though,
f or I wore three thicknesses of deerskin
and two of wool under the overcoat On
that trip of three days I got five (pan
tiers and four wolves.
The same winter I surprised a 'pack
cf wolves that had cornered three deex
in pen up in the Slehoopany country.
I had oa a wolfskin coat, and the wolves
legged it out of tbe pen the moment ttey
got sight of me, I pulled off the ooat
and put it behind a tree, and the wolves,
when they stopped to look back, acted
as if they had been scared by a false
alarm. When they saw that tbe over
coat wasnt in sight they didn't care
any more far me than for a sapling.
They immediately returned to the deer
pea as bold as you please, and I shot the
whole fire as fast as I could load and
-One winter Joel Wright, who used
to hunt and trap all the way from the
Lrci!.Sf k!4o the Mchoopaay, rolled up
his oooiwun overcoat and placed it on
a log in tbe woods till be could go over
a knoll and look at one ol ins craps.
When be got to the top of the knoll on
Lis war back, he heard a boar bellow
in& down in the hollow, as if it was
rJtallencins another bear to fight with
bim. In a minute Joel caught sight of
tbe noify bear, but couldn't make out
wkm trm nthr on was. The challen
ger was slouching toward the Jog on
which the ooonskin overcoat lay in a
bunch, and Joel made up his mind that
the bear had got scent of the coat and
was about to tackle it
"Joel had a better fur ooat at home,
and he didn't care much what the bear
did with the one on the log. Anyhow
he was going to watch tbe bear, and, if
he got the better of the coat, all right
He could see that the fellow was angry
before ho got within ten rods of the log.
Rushing up to the log, the bear seized
the overcoat in his paws and began to
squeeze and shake it as if it was a thing
of life that he held an old grudge against
Joel tramped down the knoll then to 6ee
all the fun at short range, and pretty
soon the bear gave the coat a dreadful
hug, let out a yell, fell over backward
and went to sprawling and rolling in
the snow. Jcel knew what the trouble
was, but he didn't say a word. The
bear'd had his own way, and he was as
dead as a flint when Joel got to him.
Joel's hunting knife was in a pocket of
the overcoat, and the point of it had
pierced the heart of the angry animal
when he hugged the coat to his breast
in a fit of rage. " Scranton Letter in

WHY POETRY IS PLENTIFUL.
je Saw a Ghostly Iimar cf Htaaself la a
Mr. Noah Brooks, in his personal rem
iniscences of Lincoln in The Century,
tells the following straugo story:
Oa the day mentioned Lincoln nar
rated an incident tho particulars of
which I wrote cat and printed directly
after. These are. his own words, as
nearly as they could thou be recalled:
It was just after my election in
1SC0, whin the news had teen coming
in thick end last all day and thero had
been a preat 'hurrah beys, 'so that I
was well tired out and went homo to
rest, throwing myself down on a lounge
in my chamber. Opposite wbae I lay
was a bureau with a swinging glass
upon it" (and hero he get up and placed
furniture to illustrate the position).
'and looking in that glass I saw myself
reflected nearly at full length, but my
face, I noticed, had two separate and
distinct images, tho tip ot tho nose of
one being about three inches from the
tip of the other. I was a little bothered,
perhaps startled, and got up and looked
in the glass, but the illusion vanished.
On lying down again, I saw it a second
time, plainer if pa.yblo than before,
and then I noticed that one of the faces
was a little paler say five shades
than tbe other. I get up, and the thing
melted away, and I went off, and in the
t-scittrneiit of tbe hour forgot all about
it nearly, but net quite, for the thing
would occo in awhile come up and give
toe a little pang as if something uncom
fortable had happened.
When I went homo that night, I
told my wife about it and a few days
afterward niado tbe experiment a?ain,
when" (with a laugh) "sure enough the
thing came again, but I never succeed
ed in bringing tbe ghost back after
that though I once tried very indus
triously to show it to my wife, who
was somewhat worried about it She
thought it was a 'sign' that I was to be
elected to a second term of office, and
that the paleness of one of the faces was
an omen that I should not see life
thioagh the last term."
This is a very remarkable story a
coincidence, we may say to which
some significance was given by the cruel
death of tbe president soon after the be
ginning of his second term. I told Mrs.
Lincoln the story and asked her if she
remembered its details. She expressed
surprise that Mr. Lincoln was willing
to say anything about it as be bad up
to that time refrained from mentioning
the incident to anybody, and as sho was
firm in her belief that the optical illu
sion (which it certainly was) was a
warning I never again referred to tbe
snbiect to cither the president or his
n-ifo." - - -
Subsequently Lincoln's versiou cf the
t'jry was confirmed by Private secre
tary John Hay, who, however, was of
the onii.icn that tho illusion had been
seen on tho day cf Lincoln's first nomi
i.ation. and not. :.s I have said, on the
J:-jr cf Lis tr-t elcttiou.

ions not of places and things ami people

Tho Bible tells of tho interpreting of
dreams, and ancient experts divined
according to principles now unknown.
Those, wiso seers believed in dreams as
foretellers of futnre events, of gool and
evil to tho dreamer, whoso sleeping
hours were filled with visions ct delight
or mayhap with phantoms of horror.
The sage, Abracadabra, in his immor
tal treatise on the signification of
dreams, says among a hott of wiso aud
witty conclusions: "It is fortuuato to
dream of little pigs, but unfortunate to
dream of big bnl looks." It may occur
to tho feeble intellect groping for cause
and effect that this can bo explained by
the self evident fact that "little pigs"
are harmless, but "big bullocks" are
"If you dream you have lost a tooth,
you will soon lose a friend," remains
prophetic. Indeed tho loss of a molar cr
an incisor is to be deplored, and ptrad
renture the first prcmouitory twinge of
an exposed nerve has caused tho dream.
But how explain "If yon dream your
house is on fire, you will soou have uews
I from a far country," and "to dream of
clear water is a sign of grief:"
Perhaps the modern system of inter
pretation may be summed up in the
terse aphorism that "dreams go by con
traries." So if yon dream of receiving
money you will likely lose it; if yoa
dream of kisses, fond and sweet, you
have blows in store. "If yon dream of
the dead, yon will hear from tho liv
ing." It is more condncivo to coinfort cf
mind, on the whole, to return to the
ancient sages. Abracadabra may again
be quoted ns declaring that the "most
fortunate of all dreams is to dream that
you are up to your neck in mu-.l aud
mire." But again, "to dream that yen
stand naked in the streets is a sure sign
of trouble, distress and perplexity."
Not to be wondered at sure, oven in a
Let us go back still further aud con
sult a much older au'.'iority than Abra
cadabra tho wiso atiU learned Tyrosco
phomus. Ha gives a long list of signifi
cations, embracing almost every kcown
tree and plant vegetable, flowers and
fruits. To dream of a leafless treo is a
sign of great sorrow; cf a treo without
branches, despair and suicide; tho yew
and tbe elder mean sickness to the
young and death to the eld.
"For a maiden to dream cf etrippin;
the bark from any tree is n sign of loss
of character," declares tho hoary old
sage, for a married Wfiinan it mens be-
roftrpmptit Tiifl.oH TVrrjsrn!.hr;rii::i di
vides his significations according t the
sex and condition of the dreamers. Tbcs
to a man tho stripping of tho bark por
tends an increase of fortune. Thu lima
tree means a voyage across tho ocean;
the elder treo is auspicious and t':e fir
tree more so; to dream of tho oak por
tends long life aud prosperity fining
is this, decidedly and the ash treo fore
tells & long journey.
Only limited by tho number of known
shrubs are their signi5cations. To
dream of dock leaves means a present or
possibly only a visit from your country
relatives. Of artichokes we are tol l tbat
they signify favor from annuexpected
source. Sorrel means tbe approach of
calamity which will require all your
courage to face. Of tho sunflower, tbe
loved of tho (esthetic, a deep wound to
If a fair maiden dreams of daffodils
she must alas, mistrust her lover! He
will bear watching. A sad fato with
which to burden tbe innocent posy.
Heart's ease means bewrtache. Lilies,
joy; to dream of roses brings happy love
not unmixed with sorrow. Thefragiant,
TIewt of an English Critlo on America!
With "Transatlantic Bardlets" as hia
headline, a writer in tho London Satur
day Review prefaces soino rather savage
criticism of several books of verse recent
ly publihhcd in America with tho fol
lowing lively remarks :
They arc uncommonly like the Eng
lish poetlings, these transatlantic bard
lots, but there are more of them. This is
not because tho States are less poetical
than tho mother country, but because
they havo more people. Moreover, "cul
ture" is generally held in higher esteem
there, and to appear in print is an un-
doubted mark of having obtained it, just
as a university dogreo is n proof, among
tho English middle classes, of its proud
possessor's right to bo regarded as a
scholar and a gentleman.
But if tho authorship of a book is a
certificate of tasto and reading it be
comes n diploma in honors when that
book consists of metrical matter. Now,
about 73 per cent of moderately educat
ed persons can write lines which some
times scan, often rhymo and occasional
ly mako rouse, and a painfully largo pro
port ion of these are impelled to establish
their characters in tho eyes of their
neighbors by tho publication of these so
called verses. A littlo money or the
power of deluding a publisher's reader,
a simple tribe, is all that is needed. It
must be added that at times tho "poems"
are a genuine trade success, as aro in
England, for instance, tho innocent
maundering of Sir Edwin Arnold and
Mr. Lewis Morris, a fart which encour
ages scores, nay, hundreds, of other am
bit ions and avaricious rhymesters to
emulate tho lucky men.
In the States, too, they have their dear
littlo cliques of mutual admirers, like
our fair brotherhood of the Rhymers
club and tho Bodley Head, who gener
ously praiso one another's songs which
they read (or neglect to read) in presen
tation copies and they thus maintain
one another's spirit on a little butter.
And then, of course, thero are always
one's aunts mid sisters and wives and
that sort of thing. There ore more of
theso in the United States than here;
hence there is more minor poetry.

Water lilies appropriately portend dan
