. hobo, , a treat rJ .. wolf who waa
the king of the pack at Curmmpaw, a
?aat cattle range In New Mexico, waa
a thinker aa well aa a ruler. Ilia pack
ate nothing but what they had killed
themaolvea, and thus poison waa bo
good. At laat a thousand dollars waa
aet upon hla bead. Thla brought a
noted wolf hunter from Texas, with
hla pack of great wolfhounds. But
again there was failure. Then two
other hunters cam with subtly devis
ed polaona to work hla undoing. Then
I catue on the eceoe, , first I tried
poison, and there waa no combination
of strychnine, arsenic and pruaslc acid
which I did not ntttt. I put the poisons
In cheese melted together with kidney
fat, and during the whole proem
wore gloves ateeped In bot blood. And
I scattered the bait all over the ranch.
The next morning I went out and
found Lobo's tracks, with the bait
gone. I waa delighted. I followed the
track and found another bait gone
and yet another. Thoo I found the
three baits piled upon another one and
covered with filth. Lobo had evidently
carried the first three In hla mouth
and had taken this means of express
ing his otter contempt for my devices.
But Lobo'a downfall came about
through a big white she wolf who waa
always with htm. I managed to catch
her In a trap. Then I knew we should
soon have Lobo. Klght after night be
cam around the homestead and mourn
ed his mat In long, plaintive bowls. I
knew he would try to find her body.
I set 130 strong steel wolf traps, and
in on of these I caught him a mar
tyr to constancy. And that waa the
end of Lobo. Interview With Ernest

A German epicure comes to the rescue
of tb Chinette In regard to their al
leged habit of eating rotten eggs. The
eggs, he aays, are simply preserved In
lime until they get a consistency like
that of , hard butter and they taste
somewhat like lobster. He declares
them one of the choicetit delicacies he
haa ever , eaten. He thinka there are
no better cooks In the world than tbe
Chinese. When he went to live among
them hla friends predicted he would
starve, but be bad a good tlm and
gained weight-more than he wanted
to. ... .

According to au engineer, though
there may be every rensou present why
ateam boiler should steam there are
occasion when it simply will not It
refuse duty and sulks without any
cause that can be detected. On such
occasions every one take a hand at
the fires, but tbo result Is tbe same
no steam or only enough to keep three
quarters speed. Marine and stationary
boilers are both ihua afflicted. - There
are "good days" and "bad days" In the

I bare sold gun for ten years, and
in that, tlm four of them bave bad
tbelr barrels bulged, one by snow, one
by dirt, one by ssud and one by some
thing else getting into it One man
crawling through a fence got a little
snow in tbe muzzle. He could not re
move it with bis finger, so concluded
to wait and-shoot It out which he did.
but be found a bulge like a pullet', egg
on the end of the barrel. Another got
aoine earth In the muzzle and shot It
out ud be, too, found tbe same kind
of bulge on the end of bis gun. An
other fired bis gun at ducks, which
knocked him over on hla back and fair
ly got away from blm. When be pick
ed up the gun he found a narrow raised
band around the barrel fourteen Inches
from the muzzle. ; In thla case ft wad
had probably lodged there. This cus
tomer .think the manufacturer ought
to give blm a new set of barrels. I tell
blm If the barrels bad not been good
one it would bar been a burst In
stead of a bulge,-which might have
maimed or killed him. Another manly
lug on a point brought down a duck with
ft broken wing which scurried for tb
water. Tb man raa and struck the
duck with the muzsl of tbe gun and
in so doing got sand in it He blew
most of it out and abot out the rest of
it Well, after that abot be found
