A' «FFlÒiltT PROBLEM, Italia 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. r 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.

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 ment. Bear, deer, wild turkey and other game abound, while the cool mountain streams are filled with 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.
