"Well, Although we had heard
considerable about bears, wc had
been there some time before any ol

one day, two of my men and a boy
had gone out to look for some steers
that had strayed away. Their route
led them through a" rough foot-hill
country, and took them farther from
camp than usual. The ; boy, whe
was a little jchap only about twelve
yeara old, was the son of a friend,
and had been brought into the tnounr
tains for his health. He was riding
on a mule and was a little distance
ahead of the men when he suddenly
ran on to a big grizzly among the
scrub oak. The instant the mule
sighted the bear he bolted- down the
slope, to the left, throwing the boy
off, and the animal started for him.
The men had come up by j this time.,
and while one .opened fire on him
with a six-shooter the other rushed
in, and, stooping over, caught the
Lboy up in front of htm; none tool
soon, ptther, for the bear was within

at her seven or eight times without

looking its best in that country.

and the gentle breeze that crept
down from the! higher land " that
morning rustled through the fiery
scrub oak and yellow quaking asps
in the pleasantpst way imaginable,
vhile underfoot was a soft carpet of
dry pine grass. I traveled through
the foot hills fully twelve miles, en
tirely past the place where the boy
had "fallen off, without seeing the
sign of a bear. As I had gone! along
slowly it was noon by that time,, so
I picketed my horse to graze, ate my

started back for camp.
noon had turned cloudy, with the
air chilly and damp just the time
for bear, as such an f afternoon would
likely bring them dowu to the lower
ridges to feed on acorns, of which,
there was a large crop. The bear-is
very fond of acorns and will wander,
a long way from his sleeping place
to feed on them. The little spurs or

The judges experienced consider
able difficulty in coming to a; ae1'

that the moujik.was entitled, to dam
ages for having been half crushed by
the falling prince. On the other
hand, it was hard to make the latter

journey through the air, which he

' At the same time it was difficult
to blame the husband for turning
the prince out of his house in the
drastic manner above described.:
After much deliberation, the
courts finally determined to make
the merchant responsible for the
damages, basing their decision on a
ukase of Czar Paul I
date of 179D:
"Every man has a right to throw
out of the window into the, street ,
anv useless piece of furniturevlhat
may happen, to bb"ih his house, pro
viding that he t&kes the precaution .
to call out three times" beforehand
to tlie passerby: 'Take carclVfailing
which he is . liable ,to a municipal
fine of twenty -five 'roubles, 'and is
financially respohsiblc'"f6r any- acci
dent which his negligence may have
occasioned." , ..:: ,.
The court held that the prince, at
the time of his summary ejectment
was a "useless and .superfluous piece
of furniture" in1 the house of the
merchant, but that the-' latter had
failed before throwing . the. prince
out of the. window to warn, the
pedestrians below, as required by
Accordingly, the court condemned
the merchant to pay the fine off
twenty-five .roubles. .and four. thou:
sand roubles damages to. the peas

Herr Randhartinger and Modem Muik
The death of BenedictBaudhartin-
ger. the veteran Austrian musician,
is a reminder of how new a thlniv
modern music is. When he was born
in 1802, Josef Haydn, the father oK
the symphony, had still seven years
to live, and when Haydn was born in
1722, Johann Sebastian Bach was in
tbe midsLof hi creative work. These
L three men ioin hands across the
whole history of modern instru
mental music and it is startling to
reflect that this musician who has
just passed away must have talked
with men yi ho could remember Bach.
Herr Randhartinger-.was a school
fellow of Schubert and a teacher of
Liszt, , and one of "the most widely
known musicians- In Austria.
