BEARS INVADING FARMS.
THEIR REMARKABLE BOLDNESS IN
Cornfields Foraged and Hog Pens
Robbed by Them—One Coolly Walks
Through a Village—Farmer Gentzell’s
From the New York Sun.
Harrisburg, Pa., Nov. 18. — According
to the accounts of hunters, black bear were
never so numerous and bold in Central
Pennsylvania as they are this fall. In
Centre county they have walked boldly
into villages, and one was killed the
other day on a farm within eight
miles of Bellefonto, the county seat
and home of Gov. Curtin. In Franklin
county, in the North mountain region, bears
invaded the corn fields in such numbers
during the husking season just ended that
great loss was sustained by the farmers in
corn devoured and carried away by tho
animals. Over the line in Fulton county,
especially in Tod township, more than one
farmer has been robbed of his winter’s pork
by marauding bears. In Cumberland
county, near the Perry county line, many
bears have been seen this month und three
The other day an immense bear was seen
entering the village of Milesburg, Centre
county, having come down from the woods
near by. He coolly crossed the iron bridge
over Bald Eagle creek, and walked up the
middle of the main street. People who
were in the street got quickly out of it.
Horses snorted and tugged at their tie
straps, but tho bear - kept on its way. Before
it had gone far a number of dogs got wind
of it, and appeared upon the scene. The
bear turned and dashed through A. T.
Hogg’s front picket fence, smashing it down
us if it had been made of glass, and took a
short cut out of town for the woods. There
was no one in Milesburg anxious to go bear
hunting, and the bear led the dogs a long
chare, and returned to tho mountains.
Two other bears that tried the brave and
impudent net at William Earner's, near the
Loop, in Centre county, on Tuesday night,
did not fare as well ns tho lone visitor at
Milesburg. Earner and his wife were re
turning home from a neighbor’s, about 8
o’clock, when the} - saw a bear walk out of
their front yard, shuffle across the road
ahead of them, and stop under a tree in a
field a few yards away. As they stood look
ing at the impudent bear, another one came
sliding down out of the tree and joined the
one at the foot of the tree. Then the first
bear climbed the tree, and, after
reaching the branches, slid back
down, ns his mute had done, and
then the latter repeated the per
formance. While the two bears were hav
ing this cheeky sport between themselves,
paying no attention to the spectators,
Earner told hisjwife to go iuto the house
and get his gun, his revolver and his ax.
By the time she returned prayer meeting
was over in'the village, and the people were
returning homo. They all stopped to see
the extraordinary sight of two genuine
wild bears having a circus under tho
noses of twenty spectators. The bears
paid not tho slightest attention to
the people, but took turns in climbing
and sliding down the trae. Earner sent a
load Of buckshot into one of the bears as it
stood on the ground waiting for its turn to
Climb, and it limped hurriedly off toward
the woods, howling fearfully. The other
bear did not slide down the tree that trip,
but remained among tho branches. Earner
went closer, and bombarded tho bear as it
perched in -lie tree, but he shot it four
times, literally riddling it with buckshot,
before it fell to the ground. It was at once
set upon with poles, clubs and axes by the
crowd, and the little life left in it was
Tho Gentzell farm is two miles south of
Bellefonto. at the foot of Bald Eagle Moun
tain. A few days ago John Geutzell, who
owns the farm, was told by a neighbor that
a big bear was in his cornileld stripping the
shocks and playing hob generally. Farmer
Gentzell is no hunter, but he keeps a gun,
and, taking it with him, he went to his
cornfield, which was in sight of his house,
to see if there really was a bear there husk
ing his crop, Bure enough, a:i enormous
black fellow stood at one of the shocks, scat
tering tho stalks about and stripping
off the ears. Gentzell gave bruin one
charge from his riflo. The bear jumped
into the air and fell back fiat on tlie ground.
The farmer supposed that he had killed his
game, but win! i he was loading his gun the
bear jumped up and slouched away and dis
appeared among the corn shocks. Gentzell
followed him, expecting every moment to
come upon his dead body, but was surprised
to discover him at the other end of the field,
working away at another shock of corn as
if nothing had happened.
Gentzell then shouted to his brother Hen
ry who was a. work in another field, anil
while Henry was on his way to join him
John put two more bails into the bear. Bruin
then made for the mountains, limping along
on three logs. The brothers followed him,
and a fourth shot was fired into him. This did
not finish the tough old customer, and now
thoroughly aroused he turned on his pursu
ers, and rushed upon Henry Gentzell in
such a furious charge that the farmer was
prostrate on th i ground, with the bear
pawing and chewing at his leg,
nefore he knew what had happened. It
was lucky for Gentze l that his 1> other was
there, for the bear would have torn him to
pieces in a minute more. The brother sprang
forward, and with one blow of tho heavy
rifle broke the bear’s back, and the fierce
brute fell over and died. '. he flesh was torn
from Henry Gentzell’s leg from the knee
down. The bear was one of the biggest ones
ever killed in the county, weighing between
:;00 and 400 pounds.
Three boys were hunting rabbits on Tues
day near Cowan’s Gap, in Franklin county.
They started a rabbit and it rail into a corn
shock. One of the boys went to the shock
to kick it and scare the rabbit out, while
the two others stood ready to shoot it. The
rabbit jumped out of one side, but neither
boy shot it, for on the other side a bear
tumbled out and surveyed the youthful
hunters in astonishment. The rabbit gut
away, and so did the boys. Tho bear was
afterward killed in the same field by a
farmer named Wagner.
A CHINAMAN’S PROSPERITY.
How Wing Lee Became an American
and Married an Irish Girl.
From the Philadelphia Frees.

His name is Wing Lee, Americanized into
Paul Clinton. He came to this country
twenty-one years ago, when but 13 years
old. His brother, who was an enterprising,
intelligent man, opened a butcher shop in
Ban Francisco, and sent little Wing to a
public school in Oakland. “There was some
bad boys there.” said Paul yesterday as he
stroked his little stubby moustache in a rein
inisoent sort of way, “out I got through

where I went some few months. Them was
After working for his brother and others
for a few years, Paul, who had cultivated
an acquaintance with some of the business
>nen, secured charge of 400 coolies engaged
in a sugar factory; “Those were good
times,” he said, “I got SIOO a month. Ex
penses were high but I saved —Oh! I don’t
know how much —a big pile anyway."
At tho end of five years he had'accumu
lated enough to ojien a large Chinese and
Japaneso bazar, well stockist with articles
that would have a ready sale among the
heterogeneous masses that formed the popu
lation of San Francisco and vicinity. For

had a snug balance stowed away and was
doing an excellent business. Thinking that
in the effete East he might mako a fortune
more speedily, Paul sold out and came on
to Brooklyn with several thousand dollars
in liis possession and started iu the bazar
As soon as he was established he began to
look around for a wife, and married a
buxom Irish girl. She soon displayed ail
insatiate desire to travel. Paul, like a duti
ful husband, sold out again, and the two
started South. “We traveled and traveled,”
said Mr. Clinton, meekly, “until we got
near Cuba, when the money began to run
out. She didn’t mind spending it. Then
we started back. When we got to Brooklyn
nearly all our money was gone. Soon she
was gone, too,” and the memory of those
days affected him so much that Paul care

small tear that glistened iu one corner of his
When tho reporter asked him whether he
didn’t want her hack again, Paul shook his
head mournfully, saying: “No, no, too
’spensive; cost too much.”
Prom Brooklyn he came to Philadelphia,
and several months ago he opened his first
laundry on Germantown avenue, above
Hunting Park avenue. Wing 'bee has acted
ns interpreter in a number of cases for
Chinamen who have fallen into trouble. So
well known is he among his countrymen
that he was sent for to go out to Washington
Territory at tiie time of the troubles there.
The distance deterred him, but he has acted
iu the courts of Virginia, West Virginia
and oth t near-by States on several occa
sions. In addition to his other accomplish

peare. It is said that at some time in the
past he attended a theatre where one of tho
great bard’s tragedies was being played.
Several striking sentences clung to his
memory, ar.d he astonished same of his
friends by repeating them. Since then he

The Secret of Roasting It in the Best
From the American Agriculturist.
French works on cooking tell us that poul
try and game should never be washed. This
may do for French markets and appetites,
hut where poultry is sent to market un
drawn the inside is sometimes sour and apt
to give an unpleasant taste to tho stuffing
and the flesh as well. If tho fowl has been
drawn as soon as killed, and the gall has
not been broken, it will not need washing;
but if there is the least suspicion of taint,
wash it well in cold water, to which a tea
spoonful of soda and two of salt have been
There is an infinite variety of recipes for
stuffing a turkey. A plain dressing, which
is the basis of all, is made with bread
cnimbs mixed with butter, pepper, salt and
thyme or sweet marjoram. The bread should
be soaked in cold water and squeezed dry in
a towel. The excellence of the seasoning
will depend upon the skill of the cook. Add
all seasonings a little at a time, and taste to
see when you have it right. If you have
not served an oyster soup previously, an
oyster or celery stuffing is most excellent.
Use as much of the oyster liquor as may be
necessary to moisten the bread, diluting it
with half tho quantity of water
or milk, and about two dozen
small oysters to a ten pound
turkey. In this case an oyster sauce must
be served with it. For this, bring to a boil
the juice of half a pint of oysters and one
half pint of milk, also boiling; thicken with
two teaspoonfuls of flour, wet with cold
water; add the oysters, give one boil and
serve. For a celery stuffing, the celery must
be stewed and mixed with the bread crumbs,
which should have been moistened with hot
milk. A saueo is made by heating a half
pint of milk, thickening it as above, and
adding celery that has been cut in half-inch
pieces and stewed until tender; season with
butter, pepper and salt, and the least trifle
of grated nutmeg. You may also change
your dressing by the addition of cold minced
veal, or sausage meat.
Now, having decided upon the style in
which your t urkey is to be dressed, and hav
ing washe i it preparatory to the process,
fill the body and craw as full as may be,
and sew the aperture with cotton twine;
draw the legs closely to the body, and tie or
skewer them iu place, or the bird will come
out of the oven in anything but a shapely
condition, with its limbs pointing to the
four points of the compass. Bend the wings
back under tho body; place it in a baking
pan. season it all over with salt and pepper,
and let it stand several hours before it goo i
in the oven, that the seasoning in the dress
ing may permeate and flavor the meat.
Pour a little water into the pan,
and put it into a moderate oven
for the first hour, so that it may heat
through slowly. Baste frequently, and in
crease the heat after tho first. A ten pound
bird should be baked from two and a half to
three hours. Half an hour beforo it is douo
dreiigo it with flour and baste every ten
minutes until the cooking is finished. If it
is not very fat skewer thin slices of fat
larding pork over the breast before baking.
Serve brown sauce as well, made from the
gravy in the pau, even if you have celery
or oyster sauce. Make the brown gravy by
adding a little hot water to the gravy in the
pan, from which you have skimmed the fat.
Thicken it with flour, wet with cold water
and the stewed giblets chopped fine, and put
a dash of lemon juice to the seasoning.
Serve currant or cranberry jelly, or spiced
plums, with the turkey.
A Zebra on Stilts.
From the Philadelphia Call.
A tiny zebra from far off Africa occupies
a cozy double stall in tho hospital of the
veterinary department of the University of
Pennsylvania. His quarters are roomy and
he shows a disposition to enjoy his oppor
tunity by endeavoring to gambol with the
visitor. He is a late acquisition to the
Zoological Harden, and was purchased iu
New York, where he was brought from
He is a beautifully marked little animal,
about eight hands high, and weighs 450
pounds; gentle and playful as a puppy, but
extremely sensitive as to his hind feet. His
long journey from Africa to Hamburg
aboard ship, from Hamburg to Liverpool,
and from Liverpool to New York, kept him
ju close confinement and debarred all
chance of exercise, and the consequence has
been that the tendons in the hind legs bo
came contracted and painful, forcing tho
little fellow to walk upon his toes. Prof.
Huidekoper has kindly undertaken to reme
dy his difficulty, and has made and put in
place a pair of tiny shoes, from the points of
which project a bar of iron that take their
bearing nearly a foot in front of tho toe,
ami thus by their leverage keep a constant
strain upon the contracted tendons, which
are kept well bathed with soothing lotions,
and are thus gradually drawn again to
their full length and usefulness.
