IN A BEAR'S CLUTCHES.
A Young Woman'sDesperate Strug
gle in Pennsylvania.
1)amami. (Ph.), .laui. -29. I.ot
tie Men-ill. thti female hunter of
this section, !ms just hal another
adventure worthy of record and
one which came so nar costing
inr her life that site will probably
in the future never resuitte licr
musculine sport. A few days ago,
just after the great sieet storm
-which swept over the country,
Lottie determined to go deer hunt
Inrj. Donning her iow sliocs site
started to cross Drig swamp, a
denf mass of scrup oaks and
laural. When tle Imd rcaohod
the center of tlc ntarsJi le djs
"overed the foot-print of a very
larrc bear on the crust. She fol
lowed the trail out of die swamp
jor about two miles, when .-he dis
coered the den which the animal
inhabited. Entering the cave she
fc und two little cubs on a bed of
leaves in one corner. The cubs
-were about the size of kittens and
were easily captured.
Lottie was just emerging from
the cave when she was met by an
immense she-bear. The bear had
heard the cubs yell and was mak
ing all possible speed to rescue
them. Before Lottie could draw
her rifle to her shoulder the ani
mal was upon her and grasping
her in her paws gave her such a
terrible squeeze that she fainted.
vhen the bear, thinking her dead
released her grip. She lortunately
regained consciousness quickly,
and while the old bear wjis flay
ing with her cubs the plucky hun
ter drew her rifle and shot her in
the side. The bullet did not strike
the animal's heart, and as the brute
dashed at her again Lottie drew
her hunting knife and with one
bold strike nearly served the bear's
head from the body.
Lottie was just congratulating
herself on tier successful escape
when the dead bear's mate made
hi appearance. Lottie's rifle was!
unloaded and sle was totally un
prepared for a .second encounter,
but determined to "fight it out."'
The" struggle was a long one.
Fortunately tlie young lady was
not encumbered in her motions by
petticoats, for in all her hunting!
expeditions she wears pantaloons
of dueskiu, with a long blouse.
"Wlien. li H v. IxKtie thoutrht the

bar was dead he stoojed over to!
cut hit throat, ami the animal, with
one stroke of his monstrous paw, j
tore tlie clothing almost complete
ly from her lody. During the
protracted struggle the heal had
reached the edge of a ciifl fuliy a
hundred feet hisrh and sloping at
a: angle of more thnii forty-five j
decrees down to the "Wallinpau
pack creek. As the animal grabbed
Lottie he commenced sliding on
the slippery crust down this al
most perpendicular slope. Lottie
was carried with him, and even
foot of distance traversed added to
their velocity. When they reachod
the foot of the slope they struck
against a tree, completely killing
the bear and breaking two of Lot
tie's ribs, her left arm and one of
her limbs. She managed, how
ever, to crawl about a mile to a
house, where she received medical
treatment: The first bear killed
weighed when dressed 40o pounds
and the male one 4S4 pounds.
Lottie, who is improving slowly,
has the cubs in her possession, but
she says it will be some time
before she will take another expe
dition of this kind.

A reporter paid ler a call a slie
sat in a central palace car waiting
for the train to start. He found
her occupying a seat facing her
daughter Cora, and around her was
piled numerous bundles of lug
gage. She expressed herself as
glad to grant an interview, and
pleasingly said: "Sit down there
by Cora and I will talk with you.'
Cora is a handsome girl of alout
seventeen summers, and as she
assented to the projwsition the re
porter did not deliberate, but
readily took a seat by her side.
Mrs. Ray commenced by sav
ing, with a hearty laugh: "Now

Then she went on to say that
she came fiom the North of Ire

was fifteen, and married a book
keeper named Joseph Ordway.
Her husband died a year later, and
she went to Leavenworth, Kansas,
from thence to Denver, and finally
in 1S?0, to Leadville. In Denver
she married a miner named Frank
Hay, but he died soon after.
JJShe told how in Leadvilh she

She said she didn't know how
long she would stay in Xew York.
Her property in Leadville was at
tended to by agents, and she felt
perfectly content to stay away just
as Jong as she telt disposed.
She is now about fifty years old,

A NEW DODGE.
How a Bogus Minor Manufactured
Some Rich Quartz.
A middle-aged man, w1k de
clares that his name is Benjamin
Franklin, was arrested bv ( )fiicer
Horan on O'Farrell street, San
Francisco, upon a charge of hav
ing obtained money by means of
false pretences from Julius C
Gruudel. Tlie accused went into
fa store kept or urttwiei. repre
sented that lie had been a miner:
was dead broke, and was anxious
to raise one dollar on a quantity
of gold quartx specimens, which
he produced. These were con
tained in a -mall vial, which was
filled with water; the object of
this, lie said, was to keep the
specimens bright. Grundel, who
is not an exjert in mineral quartz,
was so pleased with tin bit.-, of
white quart, which sliowcd a
quantity of gold that he gave Ben
Franklin a standard dollar. After
that individual had taken his de
parture I'rundel's curiosity was
aroused to that degree that he un-
corcked tin vial ami took out
several pieces of tlie quartz, which
he scraped, when, to his astonish
ment, the gold came off. Being
satisfied that he had been swindled,
he called the officer, and found the
seif-styled miner in a store, en
deavoring to dispose of some other
vials of specimens. Franklin was
taken to the Central station, where,
on being searched, twenty-one
vials of glittering specimens were
found on his person. The contents
of one of these was thrown into a
dipper of boiling water, and the
result w.is that the gold left the
quart, and fell to tlie bottom. On
examination, it was discovered that
a quantity of flint quartz had been
broken into fragments, and that on
each of these a small amount of
dentists leaf gold had been stuck
with varnish. The accused claimed
that he was the victim of a fraud,
the vials and contents having been
sold to him for pure gold quartz
bv a miner from Arizona.

while on her way to sehool, the

boy, three or four years older than
herself, and who had a dead black
snake, which he carried on a stick.
He thrust the dead snake into the
girl's face, ami she was so terrified
she rould not run away. Then he
took the snake and wrappd it
around her neck ami shoulders and
than ran off, leaving her thus en
vironed. She took the reptile off
and hastened to school. The child
was greatly airitated during the
entire forenoon, and wheu she re
turned home tier parents, greatly j
alaiined, urged her to tell them!
what had occurred, for iter conduct
was wild and strange. She gave
them the story iu a disjointed
