A Wild Cat in lown. On Monday Mr. Z. V. Dalton, of Bat Cave, Henderson county, passed through town with a load of mountain produce for Gaffney, S. C. Strapped to the hind gate of his wagon was a box which had in it a large wild cat that Mr Dalton had recently caught in a steeltrap on Bald mountain. When the wagon was stopped on the street, and was it learned that a wild was aboard. many were anxious to see it. The box had been lined with wire netting, and so arranged, that by turning a board to one side, a good view of the cat could be had. Every time a new face approached the box the cat snapped at ll- ll- instinctively and immediately, the face of the onlooker went backward to the amusement of those who had play- play- ed the mam act before the new comer's arrival. A little fun can always be had put of the other fellow, after a man has been laughed at himself
