Pawnees nnd Hloux In the valley of
Ilenver Creek, near the northwest cor

slaughtered In great numbers, the
Hloux being the victors. After the
Imtlle the Pawnees returned and cared
for their dead. This they did by erect
ing platforms out of poles and
brunches, and putting the bodies on
them out of the reach of wolves and

told Topics of a curious sight bo saw
ut this graveyard. Homo "horse hunt
era" were hunting In tho vicinity.
Horse hunters were those who chased
the buffalo on horseback, and they
were hnted cordially by the "foot hunt
ers," who stalked the game, because
they ran the buffalo out of the conn
try. On the occasion mentioned the horso
hunters stampeded a great herd of
buffalo right through tho Pawnee
graveyard. They struck the rotten
Poles In their mad flight and sent the
bones of the dead flying In crery di
rection. Indeed, when they hnd pass

in the years which followed many
passing hunters picked up skulls and
other bonesdnd carried them away as
One of these skulls was secured by n
man nt Hays City. It was remarkable
from the fact that an Iron-pointed ar

nearly through the other. People who
had seen the bow only In Its toy form
used to look at this skull and marvel
at the prodigious force which the In
dians could give to their primitive

A 8INQIN0 M0U8E.
Hhe Waa Ono of n Pair of Field Mica
that Had lleen Mndo l't.
Tho wlso llttlo Hold mice seem to Im
fully nwaro of their constant danger
from enemies, Ily day they seldom
como out In tho open, nnd when they
do will lodgo at tho slightest alarm
Into their underground homes. Hut
after twilight they venturo out for
food or to make a friendly visit to a
neighbor, liiith A. Cook In "Along
Four-footed Trulls" tell of catching a
pair of llttlo gray field mica In n box
trap, and putting them In n cago mndo
especially for them,
They soon grew accustomed to tholr
now home. I firmly fastened n small
tree-branch In tho center of the cage.
This afforded tho Utile creatures very
great pleasure, and they would crawl
up Ita trunk nnd out 011 tho slender
branches, which would bend with their
weight almost to the ground. On theso
occasion they used their long tails to
aid them In climbing by giving them
balance, and nlso to twist about tho
slender twigs. They learned to cat
from my hand, would run up my
sleere, and dart bnck again at any
sight or sound.
One night, as I was about to retire,
I heard a peculiar llttlo squeak, nnd
rushed at onco to the mouse-cage. Tho
mice were nowhere to bo seen, I
shook tho cage, n proceeding which
had always brought them from their
burrows, but they did not appear.
Then I noticed that the canvas which
I had used to patch tho broken wire
was eaten away, and nt last my peU
had found freedom.
I looked nbout the room for them,
and c: I did so I saw n sight that
shocked me. The family cat was busy
munching something. Thero was n lit
tle hlood-stnln on tho floor, and a small
gray tall still protruded from her
mouth. Waa It Deacon or Quaker or
both? The only answer tho cat gavs
to my query was to finish the tall and
walk away with a satisfied mew.
A few days after this tragedy I was
awakened ono night by hearing a
sweet llt!' shrill song, not unlike that
of a miniature ennary. Tho song
ceased when I began to more nbout,
and I had my trouble for my reward.
Mght after night I was serenaded by
this mysterious nocturnal musician.
The whole family heard It. and Joined
me In the search for the source of It.
All our attempt to solve flic mystery
of the peculiar sweet sound were fu
tile until one evenlnf I went to take
my hat from a closet shelf, when I
heard the same shrill little song. lie
fore my eye sat dear little Quaker!
Her little throat waa actually pouring
forth the sweet refrnln. She hnd mada
a nest In my rather expensive lint. Hut
Quaker had demonstrated herself a
singer. She wn recaptured nfter n
time, but while I had her she never
sang again. I hare never been able tn
determine whether she lost her power
of song through loss of liberty or bo
cause she wns lonely or for some phy
siological reason: all that Is certain Is
that she lost It.
HOW UTE CHARMED A GRIZZLY.
Indian Found Bear Husceptlble to th
Powers of Arttuniciit.
' ihe most interesting story I ever
heard came from the Hps of old 'Buck
skin Charley,' chief ot the Southern
Utes." said J. P. Adtberger of Phlla-
"As told by a white man the narra
tive la tame, indeed, lacking the dra
matic action and eloqucuce of the red
warrior. It was about a meeting with
a big grizzly bear in the mountains of
Colorado. Charley was out looking for
deer. He was equipped with an old
fashioned, muzzle-loading rifle, which
put him at a terrible disadvantage,
when he was suddenly confronted by
one of the biggest specimens of the
grizzly ho ever saw.
" 'I Jumped behind big tree very
quick.' he said, 'and Mr. Bear came
close, rearing up on his hind legs. I
was scared to shoot, only having one
barrel. Then I commenced to talk. I
said: "Mr. Bear, I nm your friend. I
como out nfter deer. I hope you go
way and so I kill deer and leave big
piece of meat for you." Then tho bear
seemed to get friendly, nnd he dropped
on his legs to the' ground, much as to
say he'd like a piece of deer, and then
ho run off into tho mountains.' "

The Grizzly or Old Day.
In the old days, beforo the deadly

the grizzly was a very different affair,
and uo animal on tho American con
tinent was more dreaded, his fierce

filling tho most reckless of hunters
with a wholesome dread. It was not
at all unusual for a grizzly with a bul
