AN ACCOMPLISHED CAT
‘‘MUZZY” HAS BEEN TRAINED TO
lit' is n Good as Any Hunting Dog—llow
Ilis Master Taught Him to Retrieve,
follow and Stand Fire—Has Acquired
Some Canine Habits.
Uncommon among cats is Wuzzy,
the sou of Mutz, for Wuzzy goes a
hunting. lie does not hunt as all cats
do. but, instead, goes with hunter aid
gun and retrieves game, the accom
plishment coming partly from heredity
and partly from long, patient and care
I became the possessor of a beauti
ful Australian tiger eat who responded
to the name of Mutz. Mutz was af
fectionate and of good disposition, and
I began training her to hunt while she
was a kitten. It was a most difficult
undertaking, and when I had reached
a point in her education where she
would follow me a short distance from
the house and pick up birds that were
shot she became the mother of three
kittens. Two of them were consigned
to a bucket of warm water at birth,
but the third was so beautifully
marked that lie was saved. Someone
remarked that he was “a wuzzy little
cat,” and “Wuzzy” he was named.
The coming of family duties effectu
ally stopped the further education of
Mutz, and the effort was transferred
to Wuzzy. Wuzzy’s father was evi
dently a disreputable old fellow, hut
the son’s markings were even more
perfect than those of his mother, and
now he is a miniature tiger in all but
disposition, for a more lovable and
loving eat it would be difficult to find.
The nomadic instincts of his father,
combined with the training of his
mother, made Wuzzy an ideal subject
for experimentation, and as soon as lie
could play I begau teaching him to re
After Wuzzy had learned to retrieve
he was taught to follow at request—
not command—and then to come to
shoulder. 'A dog is taught to come to
heel, hut Wuzzy preferred my shoul
der and would climb there and remain
perched during the long walks. Now
came the most important and delicate
part of his education. lie would re
trieve and would follow; would he
stand fire? Would he retrieve birds?
Beginning with a small rifle, which
made but slight sound, I gradually
accustomed him to the discharge until
he would sit on my left shoulder while
I fired a shot from the right.
The next lesson was to combine the
sound of the gun with the idea of re
trieving, and on firing I threw the
ball with which he was accustomed to
play and lie quickly associated the
gun and the ball. Then the ball was
displaced by a dead bird, a linnet or
sparrow freshly killed, and it took
but a few lessons to teach him to re
trieve the bird as readily as the ball.
The next lesson consisted in hanging
the bird to a limb and dropping it as
the gun was fired. lie soon learned
to watch the motion of the gun, and
Ids keen eyes detected the bird before
the shot. His eagerness and expres
sion of expectancy showed his im
patience and the trigger was scarcely
pressed before he was off for the fallen
Having sufficiently inculcated Into
liis mind the sequence of events I now
put liis lessons in practical operation
and took him on liis first hunt, lie
followed me readily for about a quar
ter of a mile and then showed a desire
to return home. Calling him to shoul
der, I shot a linnet. He watched the
motion of the gun with evidences of
delight, and as the bird fell he sprang
to the ground and brought the bleed
ing trophy to my feet. This was suf
ficient for the first day, and we re
turned home, where he received the
bird as bis share of the day’s sport.
Every day for a week I continued
to take him further and further from
home until I felt that his education
was about complete. A tramp of three
miles and back liad no terrors for him,
and his bright golden brown eyes were
often first to discover the hidden bird.
Like all of liis kind, he lias an antip
athy for water, and will not venture
in after birds that fall in streams.
The details of our most recent hunt
ing trips are typical of liis work and
will serve to show to what extent
Wuzzy’s education has been carried. 1
started out one evening and gave a
peculiar whistle, which the cat has
learned to recognize as his particular
call. He came sleepily around the
corner of the house, as if half inclined
to resent Interference with his nap,
but when he saw the gun liis resent
ment passed and he was all life and
action. He frisked about, like a dog,
running up and down my clothing,
climbing trees and scampering along
the top of the fences for a few hun
dred yards, when he settled down to
business aud began casting about lor
;ame. Espying a dove on a dead
limb, he crouched and begau lashing
liis long tail in perfect tiger motion.
Thus lie lay until 1 sighted the bird.
Hushed it aud brought it down, when
lie was off, swifter than a dog. and
grasping the fluttering bird almost as
soon as it touched tiie ground.
I was first to sight the next bird,
an 1 flushed and dropped a meadow
lark while the cat was looking in
another direction. Instantly on the
sound of the gun Wuzzy was abt,
and noting the aim of the gun. he was
off like a shot after the bird, which
he found by circling like a true limit
er. Thys the hunt progressed until
we reached a spring about three miles
from home just at sundown, the time
when doves delight to drink, and then
came what I consider the brightest
achievement of the cat.
Hiding beside a scrub oak I called
Wuzzy to shoulder. His bright eyes
were constantly watching, and when a
dove appeared flying swiftly toward
the spring, the cat was trembling wifh
excitement until the bird alighted for
its evening drink, then he bounded
from my shoulder to a near-by rock
and stood, lashing liis tail, while the
frightened bird flushed and swiftly
winged its way to fall by a shot. Re
trieving the bird he waited patiently
until the next appeared aud the per
formance was repeated, until the ap
proaching darkness drove us home.
Asa sequence to liis training Wuzzy
lias picked up, of his own accord, cer
tain habits that are usually considered
to belong especially to the dog. lie
objects to being left at home when any
member of the family goes visiting,
and will follow to the neighbor’s, and
if the visit happens to be a long one
lie will give most reproachful yowls
from the front porch until the hint is
taken and the visit cut short. Occa
sionally when we have spent the even
ing at a neighbor’s, we have been fol
lowed by Wuzzy, and we were always
sure to find him curled up at their
front door when we started home.—
San Francisco Chronicle.
THE WORLD’S LARCEST PLANK.
Cut From a Giant Redwood Tree It Meas
ures 6x17 Feet.
The largest perfect plank in the
world is claimed by Charles Herbert
Carr, of New' York City. It is of red
wood, cut from one of the famous Cal
ifornia giants, with dimensions of two
inches thick, six feet wide and seven
teen feet long.
While there have been perhaps as
large pieces of redwood as this one ex
hibited, it is said that they were not
without some imperfections either lat
ent or patent, or else were made up of
sectional pieces to represent one.
The plank was produced only by ac
cident at one of the largest sawmill*
in California, and probably coin'd never
be duplicated. It is one of the most
difficult tasks, coupled with constant
disappointments, as explained by one
well versed in such matters, to secure
a slice of wood of such enormous pro
portions aud have it perfect in every
An experienced woodman is obliged
to go prospecting for miles in the
dense redwood forests for a suitably
large and adaptable tree of at least
fifteen feet in diameter. When he
finds such a one he carefully inspects
it, lias it felled, aud it is then a ques
tion whether it will prove sound
enough inside to warrant further test
Trees of such large diameter, due to
their great age—looo or 1500 years—
are invariably decayed, or have what
is knowm as “heart checks” or seams,
usually three in number, diverging
from the corner of the tree trunk to
two-thirds of the distance to the cir
cumference. The trunk or log is then
taken to the mill for final dissection,
where skillful and scientific work is
called into play to cut between those
irregular “heart checks,” and at the
same time avoid any defects which lie
hidden beneath the surface.
This piece of wood contains exactly
204 square feet, board measure, and
weighs 010 pounds.
How Parliament Is IMssolved.
A preliminary step in the process ol
the dissolution of Parliament is the is
sue of the necessary writs by the Lord
Chancellors of Great Britain and Ire
land. Writs are issued to the tem
poral and spirtual peers of England,
the representative peers of Ireland,
the Judges of the High Court (uot
being temporal peers), the Attorney
and Solicitor-General and the sher
iffs and returning officers for counties
The twenty-eight representative
peers of Ireland sit for life, and there
fore in their case a dissolution merely
involves a writ of summons to the
new Parliament. It is otherwise,
however, with the sixteen elective
peers of Scotland. They hold their
seats only during the lifetime of a
Parliament, and have to be re-elected
at each general election. The election
takes place in Holyrocd Palace, in
Outside London and Middlesex the
returning officers receive their writs
by post; and a record of the times of
posting, receipt and return is pre
served by an elaborate system of
signed acknowledgements. The xvrits
are returnable within thirty-five days
of their issue, and the returning offi
cers are liable civilly and penally to
the House of Commons for the proper
returns.—London Daily Mail.
