THE WAY OLD MRS. BRUIN KEPT HER
NOISY CHILDREN QUIET.

"I once saw a she bear act toward her
cobs just as I've seen women act toward
their children," Mid an old Zoyalsock bee
hunter lust week. "Late one August I
lined a lot of wild bees to a big beech tree
two miles back in the woods on Elk nioun
tain. I located tire bees in a hollow part of
the trunk, far np.toward the top, and when
I went to mark the tree so that no one else
would claim it 1 .noticed that a bear had
gone up and down the tree several times
enly a little while before. . . .
"There was a lot of loose green beech bark
at the butt, and looking up I saw that a
bear had been clawing ami biting to g in
the hollow where the honey lay. 1 didn't
want to cut the tree for two or three weeks,
as the bees were gathering honey from the
wild flowers of late summer, and, for fear
that the bear might dig into the tree and
teal the honey before I got ready to chop
the tree down, I decided to see if I couldn't
catch the bear at it that night and shoot
it in the act.
"The next night I climbed the hemlock,
heard the brush crack at a distance, heard
something that sounded like the whining
of a cub, followed by a low growl, and
soon everything was as still in the woods
as it had been. The bear didn't make its
appearance at the bee tree that night, and
on my way heme a little after daylight 1
topped at the house of an old bear hunter
nd told him of my experience in the woods.
"The old man chuckled over my lack of
knowledge concerning the habits of bears, '
for he saw through it all at once, and then
he told me that the cracking I had heard
was caused by a bear's feet, and that a
bear always makes three or four circuits
around a bee tree in the night before it ap
preaches it. The bear I had heard tramp
ing on the dead limbs, the old hunter Raid,
had run across my track while it was niak
ing the first circuit, and that it had made

that it was a she bear with one or two
cubs,' be added.
"Then he told me to take a couple of
pieces of boaid with me when 1 went after
the bear the next time. 'From the time
you strike the woods till you get to the
tree,' he said, 'keep your boots on the
boards by taking one up from behind you
and placing it in front of you all the way
Don't let your boots touch the ground,
and when you reach the tree strap the
boards and boots to your back and take
"That night I followed the old bear
hunter's directions to the letter. A little
after midnight I heard the brush cracking
around in a circle, for the night was calm
and clear, and no wind rustled the leaves.
The sound of cracking came nearer and
nearer, and when three circuits had been
made by the lieavy steps I was rewarded
for my long watching in the big hemlock
by seeing ashe bear steal cautiously toward
the bee tree, with two cubs tagging at her
"The old bear sniffed around the butt of
the tree a couple of times, gazed at the top
for a moment, and then stuck her claws in
the bark and started to climb. The cubs
began to whine and whimper before their
mother had gone the length of her up the
tree, and immediately she began to stop
. them by giving a low growl and looking
back at them. But the cubs didn't stop
their noise, and all at once the old bear
backed down, gave each cub a cood-""

teeth. I had intended to shoot the
bear in the tree, but when I saw that the
one that was trying to steal my honey was
mother with two young ones to look
after my heart failed me. I might have
killed her easily with a charge of buck
shot, but I was so deeply interested in her
cubs and her work that I made up my
mind to let her live and watch her while
she was doing her best to dig through the
wood to where the honey lay.
"In the course of fifteen or twenty min
utes the cubs became tired of sitting on
their hind quarters, got down on all fours
and started to play with one another.
They rolled and capered in the under
brush, and in a little while they began to
squeal and look up at their mother, as
though they were coaxing her to come
down. The old bear flew into a rage over
the way they were acting, and hurriedly
backing down she gave them another se
vere shaking, scolded them, cuffed their
ears and set them up on their haunches.
Then she climbed the tree once more, and
for nearly an hour, while she worked like
beaver with tooth and claw to get at the
honey, the cubn sat as still as stumps and
didn't give vent to a single whimper.
"By that time the old bear had torn
through the wood to the honey, and when
he had eaten a lot of it she backed down
with a pawful of honey for her young ones.
The cubs gobbled it greedily, and the old
bear Boon climbed up and fetched down
another pawful, which they ate quickly.
All of a sudden the old bear started the
cubs off in front of her, aud in a moment
the bear family was out of sight. The
next night I chopped the tree down and
secured the rest of the honey. I got a
washtub full out of the hollow tree, and I
wasn't a bit sorry that I had let the bear
nd her cubs have their fill of it for once."

Ingenuity ota Naughty Boy,
Joliann Meyer, 11 years old, one of the
wickedest boys in Vienna, had been spanked
many times for running away. Finally, to
enable bira to gratify his desire to escape,
late at night he Btole the big door key,
sawed the handle through, filed the ends
ati sharp as a needle poiut, drew them
through the skin of his waist, and then
hammered them together, and the key hung
from bis body like a ring from the nose of
a savage. He was thus enabled by stand
ing on a chair to open the door and leave
the house whenever he liked. This went
on for weeks until he got in a fight with
other bad boys and was bit a heavy blow
where the key was. He was taken sense
lees to a hospital, and the doctors were un
able to remove the key till they sawed it In
two. The boy's life was in danger for sev
eral days, but now it is expected that he
will live to be spanxea many times more.

A PENNILESS PRINCESS.
The Strange Flight In Which Stephanie of
Austria Recently Found Herself;
One of the peculiarities of royal person
ages is the practice of never carrying about
any money with them, and this leads them
into all kinds of odd scrapes and adven
tures. The popular notion that their pock'
ets are generally full of gold and notes
which they scatter with a lavish hand is a
fallacy, and m nine cases out of ten kings,
queens, emperors, as well as princes and
princesses of the blood, do not hare a sin-

gle cent in their pockets. In the first place.
in their own country no one would ever
dream of asking them to pay for anything
in cash or to refuse credit, and, secondly,
they rely upon the purses of their gentle
men and ladies in waiting to furnish any
chance goldpiece that they may need. Con
sequently when, by any unusual hazard,
they find themselves without the attend
ance of their suit and alone they are gen-
An amusing illustration of this which
happened recently on the south slope of the
Semmering mountain, an hour or two's
distance from Vienna, is told by the Mar
quise de Fontenoy. The widowed Crown
Princess Stephanie and her 12-year-old
daughter Elizabeth had undertaken
mountain excursion together and either in
tentionally or accidentally bad become sep
arated from the gentlemen and ladies in at
tendance. Hungry and thirsty, j,hey stopped
at a small inn and had asked for some re
freshments, when suddenly the crown prin
cess remembered that she had nothing in
her pocket wherewith to pay. Accordingly
she took the landlady into her confidence,
informed her who she was and asked her
if she would trust her.
It is to be regretted that the landlady
had, as she claimed, "been there before."
She declined to believe that the simply at
tired aud dust covered lady and child were
archduchesses and declined to serve them
with anything unless they paid for it in ad
vance, eveu requesting them to relieve the
inn of their presence if they had no money,
Crown Princess Stephanie took the matter
quietly enough, sensible of its ludicrous
side, but the little archduchess was infuri
ated and protested with flashing eyes to
the landlady, "Aber r;it sind doch ehr

In the same way the king of Denmark
was once apostrophized as a confidence man
by a suspicious jeweler at Hamburg and
ordered out of his shop merely because,
finding that he had not sufficient money in
his pocket to pay for the trinkets that he
had bought, he had shown some embarrass
ment and asked that they should be sent to
bis hotel. The Prince of Wales and his
equerry got financially stranded when vis
iting the battlefields just after the Franco
German war and were only able to pay
their hotel bill at Sedan by pawning Gen
eral Teesdale's watch at the mont de piete
of the locality.
A Man Convicted of Murder With the Testi
mony of a Printed Talmage Sermon.
Some time in August, 1887, a man named-
Coker was placed on trial in the criminal
court of Henderson county. One of the
principal witnesses against the defendant
was Tom Fulton, and it was upon his evi
dence that the conviction was held. Lee
Coker, a son of the defendant, on the even
ing after the trial remarked to a young lady
whom he met:
'While my father is serving a term in the
penitentiary Tom Fulton will be serving
term in hell."
On the night of the 10th of August, a few
days after, Tom Fulton, while standing on
his front gallery, was shot dead by an un
known assassin. The threat made by Lee
Coker to the young lady led to his arrest.
Near Fulton's dead body were found some
pieces of newspaper which had been used
as gun wadding. Coker was granted
change of venue to Canton, Vanzandt coun
ty. Here two trials were given him, both
resulting in mistrials. On the 16th of
April of this year Coker was tried for the
third time, and a decision was reached, fix
ing the penalty at life imprisonment. He
was convicted solely upon circumstantial
evidence. The pieces of paper found by the
body proved to be a copy of The Comanche
Chief. The pieces of paper found by the
body and those found inCoker's shot pouch
when placed together fit perfectly, and
reading across a part of Talniage's sermon
was deciphered, which read as follows:
"Who watched you last night? Who has
been good to you all your lifef Methinks
the goodness of God would convert this
whole audience to repentance."
On the other side of the paper was an ad
vertisement which read evenly. This is the
most remarkable feature of the whole af
fairthe words uttered by Dr. Talmage
seemed to apply sodirectly to the murderer,
who divided the words by tearing the paper
and tming a part for a gun wad, which was
found beside his victim.
Three sizes of shot were extricated from
the body of the deceased, and three sizes of
shot were found in (Joker's shot pouch
which compared identically. The loaded
barrel of Coker's gun was also examined
ind it contained three sizes of shot, compar
ing with the shot in the pouch and those
taken from the dead body. His trial was
set and continued 10 times.
The Fighting MeCooka.'
The McCook family was well represented
in the war of the rebellion, und the mem
bers were generally "bunched" as the
"fighting MoCooks." General Alexander
McCook had as one of his staff officers Ad
jutant General Dan McCook, of Illinois.
Other members of the family were Captain
Edwin McCook, who belonged to Logan's
regiment; Lieutenant Edward McCook,
who was in the regular army ; Major Anson
G. McCook, of the Second Ohio; Captain
Henry McCook, of Illinois, and Sheldoc
McCook, lieutenant in the navy. They
bore themselves bravely and won the title

HAY MULCH FOR FERTILIZING
Ha Tries the Kflect of Spreading Cut
Grass, After It Bad Dried, Along
Through the Drills BetwVeu Rows of
Potatoes Planted In Poor Land.
Wishing to use a piece of land that
was apparently a most barren, worthless
plot of ground, one of my neighbors
tried some experiments. The only veg
etation apparent was a scanty growth of
daisies, a few buttercups and a large
quantity ot sour grass or field sorrel.
The soil was of hard clay, and in a drouth
it was baked to the depth of five or six
inches, and possibly more ; and I have
seen a lieavy snower, tasting Beverai
hours, pour down upon it until it seemed
as though it would deluge the whole sur
face, but to my surprise, after it had
ceased raining for two hours, this ground
seemed as hard and dry as it nad been
Two years ago last summer this land
was broken up, manured ana planted
with potatoes, which yielded almost
nothing. But it was here that my neigh
bor tried a new plan, at least new to me
and possibly many others. He had a par-tiallr-mead'owed
piece of Und close by,
and during the summer, when the pota
toes were hoed for the last time, lie cut
the grass on the meadow, and after it
had dried ha spread it along through the
drills between the rows of potatoes. He
cut the meadow the second time, and
spread the cutting as before ; and by the
time tne potatoes were reauy lor uigging
the hav had settled well, down on the
surface, and the hay was covered with
the sou when the potatoes were dug.
The next spring it was plowed much
easier, appeared more friable than be
fore, and alter tilling it well be sowed a
varied assortment of vegetables, and
among them peppers, which, when ready
for picking, were the largest in this vi
cinity. Some of the vegetables did not
do quite) as well as they would had they
been in other sou : but, taking an in an,
he had a surprisingly tine crop on his
hav fertilizer, which he continued to ap
ply whenever the meadow was ready for
Last summer, much to my surprise, ne

about the drouth we experienced last

and all the moisture was available for

in a telling manner, in noeing tus cei

A NKfiLKCTED CHANCE.
Another Economy Our Land Tillers
Should Look After,
A writer in the American Agriculturist
says : "1 suppose that eacn year 1 am giv
ing away a thousand pounds of honey
for bees get a good deal from raspberry
gardens and from nearly all our fruits
when in flower. Clearly here is another
economy that our land tniers snouiu
look after more carefully. It is not al
together as a market product that honey
is valuable, but as a food product for
home consumption. It is a concentrated
food of the greatest value. Every effort
should once more be put forth to make
farm life independent. So long as it is
dependent on markets, the drop in the
prices of wheat, hops, corn and apples
bankrupts us. A great diversity of
crops, and a purpose to raise as far as
possible our own necessities, enable us
proportionally to be independent of fluct
uating prices. But t ie bee industry is
to be commended as a complementary
necessity to successful fruit growing.
Many of our grapes are not self-polleniz-ing.
Some of our pears are of the same
deficient nature. All fruits are more or
less dependent on bees to carry pollen
from one to another. I have no doubt
but the possession of a small house of
bees in the orchard will be worth thou
sands of dollars to a man who grows
half a dozen or more acres of fruit.
Some years the need of this help is not
so great as in others, but there are years
when our fruit crop is lost for lack of
pollenation. ' The year 1890 was of this
sort; but that year I saw two small
orchards loaded with apples. Each
orchard had a few hives of bees.' The
cold rains prevented any general and
extensive aid from insects until it was
too late. This co-operation of industries
is of vital importance. It holds the key
of the situation, A complete home ought
to include the production of nearly all
that we need for food and comfort and
clothing. In reality we waste, or allow
to go to waste, a large part of the natural
products of the land. Honey making as
an industry should not be separated
from fruit and flower growing, or from
general farming. The art is easily
reamed, and in a family of six persons
there will generally be found one who
finds especial pleasure in bee culture.
Fruit, flowers and honey are a perfect
and natural combination of industries.
It is not the amount of money that we
can make from honey that settles the
question, but the fact that what honey
we secure is a desirable supplement to
our income, and is so much withdrawn
from waste. We have the honey if we
have the flowers, but we need the bees
as extractors and manufacturers, who
will store it very carefully for future
Salt for Animals.
Salt is necessary for all vegetarian
animals and aids in the digestion of the
food. The belief that it is a preventive
of intestinal worms is well founded, for
these parasites are found mostly in ani
mals of imperfect digestion. The un
digested food encourages these pests, as
they feed upon it or upon the copious
mucus secreted in tne ooweis 01 animais
suffering from indigestion. Salt should
be given regularly with every feed, il
cut food is used, otherwise in the form
of a lump of rock salt kept in the manger,
where it may alwayB be reached.

after a man has been sentenced a certain
number of times to jail, to send him to
the Keeley cure at the state's expense,
Judge Andrews, of the Augusta munic

the expense, and if a man relapsed to his
