HOW A MAX KUXS DOWN A IEEI1.
Thi Apaclie I'eimlty for Mi,iuj
Game at the First Fire.
When an Apache hunter goes out j
for a hunt he dispenses -with oven tlu .
scant attire he assumes in his ordin
ary daily vralk in life. He needs mi '
dog for his quick eye detects the trai
of a deer as readily as thc hound's I
does, no matter how keen its scent, j
On the trail he follows it ab silenth
as a shadow, for Jie knows that he
will soon come in sight of the game,
either feeding or lying at rest nmong
the bushes. "When he sights tl-e deer
he steals to within safe gunshot. If
the deer's head is turned away from
the hunter, the latter, first taking aim,
shuffles his foot on the ground. If
the deer is lying down it springs to
its feet at the sound, and wheels
around facing the direction from
which the sound came. If it is stand
ing it turns around quickly. The
Apache hunter is always desirous of
killing a deer by shooting it as nearly
in the center of the forehead as he
can. So, when the deer turns toward
him, ho fires at that spot. His aim is
rarely at fault, but sometimes the
deer is quicker to discover the cause
of its alarm than the hunter is to fire,
and turns for safety in flight. An
Apache's gun, also, not unfrequently
misses fire, and the deer flees on the
wings of the wind. To permit a deer
to escape after it is once discovered
is something that no Apache hunter
is expected to do, and it is against
their code to fire the second time.
The hunter, failing to kill his game a)
the first attempt, must run it down,
and it is very rare that he fails in
this chase. As the deer starts away
in its flight, leaping from twenty to
thirty feet at a time, the Indian drops
his gun, :uid, with hideous yells,
starts in pursuit. The deer
at first leaves the hunter
far behind, putting forth its greatest
efforts to that end! But its trail is as
plain to the Indian as a turnpike road
is to a white man, and ho follows iu
As is its nature, as soon as the deer is
out of sight and sound of threateu
inir dancer, it stops and waits for de
velopments. The sight of the pur-j
suing hunter starts it on its way
again. Jivery nait oi tmsKinu tens
against the deer, for it is not of suffi
cient length to give it any beneficial
. rest, and at every new start it is stiffer
and less active. The Indian never
halts. There are runners among the
Apaches who can run for twenty-four
hours without a stop, and can make
their five miles even- hour of the
time. After the deer has run for two
or three hours, its thirst prompts it
to make for the nearest water. This
the relentless hunter knows to be in
evitable, and when the deer reaches
that stage of the chase the Indian
considers the victory won. There is
no hope for the deer after it stops to
drink, for it takes into its parched
stomach all it can. Having laden
itself with this weight of water the i
deer is unable to take long leaps, and j
oannot extend its run between halts
more than half the former distance.
The Indian's tongue may hang swol
len and white from his mouth, and
his mouth be as dry as dust, and his
stomach burning up with heat, but
he never stops to drink. He scoops a
handful of water from the stream as
he dashes across it, and carries it to
his mouth, where he holds it a mo
ment and ejects it without taking a
swallow. If he is obliged to swim,
he lets the water run into his mouth
but keeps it from his stomach.
After running an hour or so, after
the deer has quenched his thirst, the
Indian knows it is time to find some
evidence of the animal's weakening.
These he is sure to find along the
trail, in the shape of blood spots on j
some rock where the deer has tum
bled on its knees, or a patchy of
hair clinging to some sharp projec
tion, showing that the deer's strength
has failed so that it cannot turn
quickly out of the way of obstacles.
!Now the Indian increases his speed.
He knows that the deer's race is run.
In time he overtakes the deer, which
is now loping feebly along. A yell
startles it into a momentary burst of
speed. Then, as if appreciating the
fact that it were useless to prolong
the race, it stops and turns with all
the defiance its exhausted nature can
assume, and awaits the approach of
the hunter. Sometimes, however,
the deer runs until it drops dead or
dying in its tracks. If it turns upon
the Indian, the latter keeps right on
at full speed. He knows the deer can
do him no harm, its inclination to
the contrary notwithstanding. He
seizes it boldly, throws it to the
ground with ease, and cuts its throat.
Without a moment's delay, whether
the deer is dead or dying, the Indian
cuts from behind the fore shoulder a
large piece of meat He sucks the
-warm blood from it and devours the
morsel, keeping constantly on the
move. If the carcass of the deer is
not too heavy, he throws it across his
shoulders and starts immediately for
home. He does not rest a moment,
for fear of becoming to stiff to make
the return trip. If the deer is too
heavy for him to carry, he cuts out
the choicest parts, hides the remain
der in a secure place, and brings in
the former. In this place another
member of the tribe is selected to
take his back track on the arrival of
the hunter in camp, and bring in the
venison left behind.
If the deer is young an Apache
hunter will run it down within a dis
tance of sixty miles, but they have
beenjcnown to prolong a chase for
100 miles. The course taken is al
ways devious and circuitous, and may
end within a mile or so of the start
Senator Sabin'.s Views.
Minneapolis, Minn., Jan. 2. Sen
ator Sabin, Chairman of the National
Eepublican Committee, this after
noon, authorized the Evening Jour
nal to define his position on finances
as follews: In his opinion, the pay
ment of the National debt should
cease, in fact, should have ceased
years ago. He should favor the issue
of 2 T)er cent fifty-year bonds by the
government, lnwwnicn ail Donas oi
either 'denominations should be con
verted as they mature or are called
in. These bonds could be used as a
basis for bank issues. Accompany
ing this measure should be a repeal of
the 1 per cent tax on bank circula
tion, now existing. This would mnke
the interest on the new bonds equv
alent to the banlts to 3 per cent, and
he thought a majority of the banks
would readily take them, especially if
they were allowed, as they should be,
to issue circulation upon their full
face, or par value. Under present
basis the banks can issue circulation
to an extent of only 90 per cent of
the par value of bonds deposited as
security for such circulation. He
thought it would be safe to permit
banks to issue notes to the par value
of their bonds, because our money
cannot be any better than our Gov
ernment. A ItroLerN Good Lnck.
