    A' «FFlÒiltT PROBLEM,
foot In heigth securely fastened to her
limbs, received the short «word, saluted
the governor, and, turning to her enemy,
gave a shout of defiance and waved her
scarlet cloak to rouac his anger. At thia
time the distance separating the antagon­
ista was almost 200 feet. Toro, quivering
with excitement and pawing the earth in
hia rage, waited for no second invitation.
With flashing eyes and head lowered to
the ground, he started at full speed for
the object of hia hate. The brave girl
waited until the beast was within twenty
feet, when, bracing herself firmly, she
held her sword at shoulder height, ready
for his coming. When within about four
feet she threw her body suddenly forward,
gave a quick thrust with the sword, and,
without waiting to see the effect of the
blow, swung quickly around and again
saluted the governor. In the twinkling
of an eye she turned to face the bull, and
as she did so he dropped dead, so close to
her that, without moving from her posi
lion, she placed one foot upon the neck ol
her wfc helpless enemy.
The sword, directed by the strong arm
of the self possessed girl, had severed the
spinal cord and death was instantaneous
and probably painless. It was a perilous
feat, skillfully and fearlessly performed,
and the slightest nervousness on the part
of the performer would probably have re­
sulted in her death. The great audience,
in recognition of the skill of the brave
toreadora, rose to its foet and for several
moments there was a shower of gold and
silver coins falling around the victorious
girl.—City of Mexico Cor. Indianapolis
,A man knows wliat a big knife is for and a
little knife, but he does not need to be
ashamed of not being acquainted with the
littte erratic fads which are being con­
stantly introduced forfash Ion or effect. It .be vulgar to serve a lot of vege­
tables all -at one time; it than became
vulgar not to do it. It used to be fashion­
able to pile your plate with a mixture
of eatables; then it became the worst, of
taste. There is only one absolute rule of
eating and drinking that all people need
to observe—cleanliness—and the little ex­
tra kinks of fashion amount to nothing,
and are net wor^h a man’s while to
follow and stud^. Good breeding consists
as much in arranging things for the
comfort of your guests as it does In know­
ing how to eat your dinner in a simple
and cleanly way.—San Francisco Chron­

A Great Sporting Freaerve.
The greatest game preserve in the
world will be held by the Cheat Moun­
tain Sportsman's club, a majority of the
members of which are gentlemen of this
city. Compared with it, Tuxedo park is
a mere bagatelle.
The preserve lies in the heart of the
wildest region in the mountains of West
Virginia. It covers an area of 60 miles,
and within its limits there is not a settle­
Bear, deer, wild turkey and
other game abound, while the cool
mountain streams
are filled
the speckled beauties that make the
heart nt the angler leap with joy. The
tract of land 'embraces 50,000 acres, and
will be increased by 20,000 acres. It is
fifty miles from the railroad, but is
reached by a good macadamized road.
None but the most intrepid hunters have
traversed its solitary wilds, while only the
merry fhoonshiner has resided within its
confines. The bear and deer have had
full swing, and the hardy hunters will
find great sport daring the hunting sea­
son In peppering buckshot into thia noble
game, while there are just enough rattle­
snakes loitedag on the hills to add the
spice of danger to the fun.
During the year the preserves will be
plentifully stocked with English pheas
anta imported from the old country, and
wild boars will aim be turned loose there.
