r\ TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE.
TBo fc ory Tc!d of Two Canadian Trappers.
A Narrow Escape.
Once or twice lie showed a curious ro
hictance about allowing a man to approach
him sudtleuly from behind. Altogether
his actions were so odd that I felt some
curiosity to learn his history. It turned
out that ho had been through a rat her un
canny experience the winter before. lie
and another man had gone into a remote
basin, or inclosed valley, in the heart of
the mountains, where gatno was very
plentiful, indeed, it was so abundant that
they decided to pass the winter there.
Accordingly they put up a log cabin, work
ing hard, and merely killing enough meat
for their immediate use. Just as it was
finished winter set in with tremendous
snow storms. Going out to hunt, in the
first lull, they found, to their consterna
tion, that every head of game had left the
valley. Not an animal was to bo found
therein; they had abandoned it for their
winter haunts. The-outlook for the two
adventurers was appalling. They were
afraid of trying to break out through the
deep snow drifts, and starvation stared
them in the face if they staid. The man
that I met had his dog with him. They
put themselves on very short commons,
so as to use up their Hour as slowly as
possible, and hunted unweariedly, but
Soon a violent quarrel broke out be
tween them. The other man, a fierce,
sullen fellow, insisted that the dog should
be killed, but the owner was exceedingly
attached to it, and refused. For a couple
Df weeks they spoke no words to each
other, though cooped in the little narrow
pen of logs. Then one night the owner
of tho dog was wakened by the animal
crying out; tho other man had tried to
kill it with his knife, but failed. Tho
provisions wero now almost exhausted,
and the two men wero glaring at each
other with the rage of maddened, raven
ing hunger. Neither dared to sleep, for
fear that the other would kill him. Then
the ono who owned tho dog at last spoke,
and proposed that, to give each a chance
for his life, they should separate. lie
would take half of the handful of flour
that was left and start off to try to get
home; the other should stay where ho
was, and if lie tried to follow the first ho
was warned that lie would be shot with
out mercy. A like fate was to bo tho
portion of th wanderer if driven to re
turn to the hut. The arrangement was
agreed to and tho two men separated,
neither daring, to turn his back while they
were within rifle shot of each other.
For two days the one who wont off
toiled on with weary weakness through
tho snow drifts. Late on tho second
afternoon, as ho looked back from a high
ridge, ho saw in the far distance a black
speck against tho snow, coming along on
liis trail. Ilis companion was dogging
his footsteps. Immediately he followed
liis own trail back a little and laid in am
bush. At dusk hi3 companion came
stealthily up, rifle in hand, peering cau
tiously ahead, his drawn face showing
the starved, eager ferocity of the wiia
beast, and the man lie was hunting shot
him down exactly as if he had been ono.
Leaving tho body where it foil, the wan
derer continued his journey, the dog stag
gering painfully behind him. The next
evening lie baked his last cako and divided
it with the dog. In the morning, with
liis belt drawn still tighter round his skel
eton body, he once moro set out, with ap
parently only a few hours of dull misery
between him and death. At noon ho
crossed the track of a huge timber wolf;
instantly the dog gave tongue, and, rally
ing its strength, ran along tho trail. The
man struggled after
At last liis strength gave out and lie sat
down to die, but while sitting still, slowly
stiffening with tho cold, ho heard tho dog
baying in tho woods. Shaking off his
mortal numbness, he crawled towards the
sound, and found tho wolf over the body
of a deer ho had just killed, and keeping
the dog from it. At the approach of the
new assailant the wolf sullenly drew off,
and the man and dog tore tho raw deer
flesh with hideous eagerness. It made
them very sick for tho next twenty four
hours; but, lying by the carcass for two
or three days, they recovered strength.—

Dudes Among tho Crows.
In personal appearance the Crow Indian
men are fine looking—tall and well
formed. The women are small ahd in
ferior in appearance, and are not as vir
tuous as other plains Indians. Their
vocal language is coarse and harsh, and
does not seem to have a rich vocabulary.
They are poor in tradition. The men cut
the hair squarely off round the forehead,
leaving this bang from four to six inches
in length, which, when in full dress, is
made to stand upright by dressing it with
clay, which is sometimes made more ad
hesive by admixture with a sticky sub
stance obtained by boiling gummy weeds
and bushes. The side hair is at times
braided and tho hair on the back of the
head separated into several ‘strips,”
which are held in place by glue placed at
regular intervals. To give them the ap
pearance of very long hair, of which they
are extremely proud, that which has been
cut off in mourning, or that taken from
their ponies’ tails and manes, is glued on
to lengthen it out, They do not pull out
eyebrows or lashes. In dress the men
wear the hooded coat made of blanket.
At the shoulder, wrist of the coat and
down tho leggings a coarse fringe is
fastened. Tho women wear short skirts
made of raw material, and care little for
colored ribbons or trinkets.—Fort Keogh
(M. TANARUS.) Cor. Cincinnati Enquirer.
Ho Was Perfectly Satisfied.
The officer at the Third Street depot
found two men jawing, and after sending
one away said to the other:
“You are very foolish to get up a
“But ho threatened to hit me on th>
snout!” protested the stranger.
“Yes, but what do you care?”
‘I don’t care about his threat, but it
was his language. I protest -against tho
term ‘snout!’ ”
“Ho meant nose, I presume.”
“I presumo so, but why didn t he say
*o? That's what I was asking him, and
that’s what I want to know. lie could
have just as well told me in a quiet,
genteel way that he would hit me in the
nose, and ho might even have hit mo.”
“Well, you’d better let him alono.”
Re didn’t, though. He slipped away
and renewed the controversy, and ten
minutes later he came back with his nose
kuoekod into the middle of last week and
one eye closing.
“1 told you,” said the officer. "Are
you satisfied now?”
“I am, sir. It’s snout, and a mighty
bad onel” —Detroit Free Press.

There had been several falsa starts in
the great race of tho day. Mr. O’Brien
was much aggravated. “Oi don’t see,”
