doubtless have cut him in two only for
his heavy clothing When all hand
were called to his assistance it was f und
that hit coats were so tightly jammed in
the teeth of the wheels it was impossible
to back the machine up, and it was

apart which required somo time.

KEEPS PEOPLE AWAKE
Did you hear a panther screaming
around your house, about -I a. m. yes
terday morning7 Msny people, in dij
fernt parts of town heard him and had
thrilling stories to tell of tho blood
curdling yells with which the varmint
froze their blood.
The panther and bis boldness in com
ing and circling around close to the
houso was the topic of discussion at
many breakfaet tables. At Hieenr'a
boarding houee one gentleman waxed
highly indignant that any one should
think ho didn't know the scream of n
panther when ho heard it, after20 years'
residence on tho Bay.
One young lady who keeps books in
a business house, and lives on the hill
above the Epiecopal Church was fright
ened out of a years' growth and stayed
up balance of the night barricading the
stairways and trying to muster up cour
age to go down stairs and phone for as
sistance. As a matter of fact (the noise heard
was the siren whistle of the Czarina as J
ahe passed down tho bay, but to tho )
listener it bounded like tho screech of
eomo wild animal which seemed to cir
cle around the house and them como up
on the back porch for a final yell.
