To my mind one of the most attractive sports of the west is ell; httntinu. Tito ellc used to be found over almrtt the entire United States, but it now ox- istB, in any numbers, only in the great mountain chains of the Rookies and tho coast ranges lu Oregon and Washington. It is without exception the lordliest of tho doer kind, und in size is second only to tho mooso. Nothing can surpass tho grand boauty of an old bull elk bearing his twelvo-tincd antlers aloft with easy grace as ho roars out his challenge to all rivals. In some parts of tho west afar from tho settlements the ellc is still plentiful. He offers to the huuter not only the grandest of trophies in the shape of his magnificent head and horns, but also an abundant supply of tho best possible meat. Thore ia no venison npon which one can live ao long without tiring as elk meat, the only drawback being that it must be eaten hot, as tho fat turns into regular tallow as soon aa it cools. During the summer, whilo thotr horns are in the velvet, no truo sportsman will shoot the elk, nor will ho shoot COWB and calveB at any time save when absolutely in need of meat! but in September the volvetdrops off hishorns, and then each of the master bulls begins to collect a harem of cows, from five or six to twenty or thirty in number. He keeps all the small bulls afar from this herd, and wages furious war against every rival of tho same size and antlor growth as himself. At this season tho bull has a very extraordinary and peculiar note. The frontiersmen call it whistling, but it is not like a whistle at all; it is more like a bugle, consisting of a bur or two of music on a rising scale, and then nn- othor bar nr two on a falling scale, followed sometimes by three or four fiute- liko notes. It is most exciting to creep up to a. bull when he is whistling in this way. The Drst elk I shot in the season of 1891 was obtained in this maimer. I was traveling with a pack train in the mountains, riding at the head. It was a dark, lowering, rainy morning, and wo were going up a small valley with steep, densely wooded hills ou either hand. Suddenly as we camo out into a little glade, we hoard, half a mile to our right, the challenge of a bull elk, speedily answered by a more distant note of defiance, evidently from a rival further up tho mountain. I and my companion, a tall, silent old mountain hunter, instantly slipped off our horses and began to steal through the woods toward the sound. It was a groat tamarack forest, and tho ground at our feet was covered with wator-loggod mosB, so that it was easy to walk without making a noise. As silently as possible we crept on from tree to tree, in tho gloom of tho mighty evergreen forest, every minute or two stopping to listen for tho challenge. The ellc was evidently vory much excited by tho presence of his rival on the distant mountain side, and ho lcopt repeating his c'all at short intervals. When we first went into the woods and heard it from afar it sounded most musical, but as wo drew nearer the sound had a harsh ring, which detracted from its melody, but nevertheless Bert a thrill through our veins. Nearer and nearer wc crept, and each minute the roar of the challungo camo booming down through the woods louder than before. Then wo got near enough to hear the rattle of the great antlers as the bull savagely thrashed the young trees and saplings. Still nearer we crept, and from a particularly donso clump of young evergreens tho roar came so near as to make it sound like the cry of some foroeious wild beast The old hunter dropped behind and I raced silently forward toward tha clump. In another moment I saw the tops of the great antlers projecting one on either side of a. tree trunk. I was in my buckskin hunting shirt, which, harmonizes so well with the tree trunks that it is difficult for even tho sharpest eye to distinguish it. b'or. a moment or two evidently the elk could not quite sea what I was. Stepping to ono side of tho tree he walked a couple of paces toward mo with tho peculiar, stately grace of his kind, his shapely head and lordly antlers borno uloft by the great dwelling neck. Then, as ho halted, my bullet took him straight in the chest. Round he wheeled and started off, and with the second bullet I hit him in the flank. Kithor of tho shots was fatal, and after a thirty-yard run tho lordly beast staggered, stopped, foil over on hia aide and was in the death struggle as I drew near. In a minute afterward the old hunter and I were standing admiring hia huge body and beautifully formed, clean brown legs. Onco I shot two bulls while thev were engaged in deadly combat with each other. 1 had been lying out in a high alpine valley over night with a companion. We hail no blankets with us, nothing but our jackets, in which we bad slept by tho side of the fire all night Before dawn we ware off, threading our .vay through tho cool, dim archways of the. pine forest, and just at suurise we heard, half a mile in our front, tho clatter of horns and the savage squealing which marks an elk fight Stealing up softly, we wore soon within l 'J5 yards of the combatants, two powerful and ti -enly matched bulls. They fought by charging each other like rams, the shuck being tremendous as the great beasts, with bristling hair, flashing eyes, and lowered horns, crashed together. Once tho antlers were interlocked, each strove by sheer strength and address to force his opponent back, und they stood for minutes straining with their haunches gathered under them, squt>ulingfiercely at times, then they woult". separate, rotlre some little distance, fronting each other with glaring eyes, und again come together. The great object of each was to catch the other in the flank. The, hair and hide ou tho neck aud shotlders of the wapiti, us tho elk is more properly called, offer a nearly inpenotrttble iihleld; but tbe Akin is softer on the flank and haunches, and almost tho only serious damage that is ?ver done in a fight is when the victor U able to catch tt>e weaker animal in tbe flank at. he turns, or overtake and punish him about the tump as he flci -.s. I have never known a horn to go through the hide nronnd the neck, although after a conflict the flesh will show great bruises there under the skin. In this particular instance, however, I interrupted tho conflict long before it had tlmo to come to a fatnl conclusion, killing both combatants— ono by u shot in the shoulder ns they wrestled together, and the other | by a bullet in tho flank as it ran. Wsj had had no breakfast that morning, and the first thing wo* did was to cut out a strip of steak from alongside the loins, build a flro and roast on willow twigs little kabobs of luscious-meat If taken in the open, an oik can be run down by a good horse. I have never myself tried the experiment but throe years ago, near my ranch,'a cowboy with whom I have often worked on round-ups performed the feat He waa on the round-up. and w«« driving some eattlo out of a brush patch at the bottom of a coulee when an elk sprang j up directly ahead of him and went off at the swinging trot characteristic of the species. A trotting elk oan go all 1 day, but if it should be forced to gallop, though it goes very fast for a few hundred rods, it speedily tires. The cowboy on his speedy, wiry little pony instantly dashed at the elk, foroed it to gallop, end kept it on the run for nearly a mile; then it began to fag. He then came alongside and threw his rope over the horns. With the utmost exertions, however, he was unable to master it until another cow-puncher rode up aud shot it with a revolver.—Theodore Uoosovelt, in N. Y. Sun. THE BEAR IS FUNNY. Of Course- trie Humor Js Hot So Appnrent Whan Ton Ar« In His Clutoli. In locolities where oak forests abound, says General Maclntire, perhaps tho plcasautest, if not the best time for shooting bears is in tho month of December, when they aro fed on acorns, which are then ripe. They generally commence feeding about sunset when they climb up the oak trees and gorge themselves with ncorus all night, often not betaking themselves to their lairs, which are generally either caves or thickets near their feeding ground, until some tlmo after sunrise. Their whereabouts is easily discovered from the broken branches showing distinctly against the dark foliage of the treqp, tho back of the leaf of tho Himalayan oak being white. At tho commencement of the acorn soason their attention is so much engaged with their feast that usually they aro easily approuched. But on suddenly finding themselves "treod," their astonishment is ludicrous to behold. A bear, he adds, when up a tree, even if only slightly wounded, never attempts to clamber down. It invariably flops straight on to tho ground from any height whatsoever. I once Baw a bear I had* shot at roll over and over like a ball down an almost perpendicular declivity for several hundred feet and seemingly without much inconvenience from its tumble, ns it was nowhere to be found at the bottom. An odd peculiarity of the bears is that when two or more of them aro found together, and ono of them happens to get wounded, the wounded one will sometimes munifest its resentment by savagely attacking one of its companions. A good story in this conneation is told of another sportsman. He had stalked a large she hear feeding in Boino open ground, with a half-grown oub at its side. From the boar's position he could not got a shot at a vital place, and so, instead of waiting, as he ought to have done, he fired and hit it behind. Ho might just as well have hit her with a lady 's riding whip. The animal, on being struck, t" *ned around to see what was the matter, and, perceiving nothing but her own cub feeding quietly by her side, came to the conclusion, apparently, that the cub had bitten her. Consequently she at once rushed at the cub to punish it for its presumption, and the two rolled over and over and disappeared in the jungle. Tho sportsman was too much amused to get another shot Auother remarkable peculiarity of bears noted by Gen. Maclntyro is that when a boar attacks a man it invariably goes for the face, whereas a tiger or leopard usually seizes a limb first Henco it is that in the Himalayas native villagers aro not infrequently to be seen with their faces fearfully disfigured by bears' claws. This they aro liable to when protecting their crops from destruction by tho boars.— Chamber" a Journal. 'I ho London tVouinn's Toll Ileal l.lfe. One i «ason why so few women who believe in tho political equality of the sexes have mode little headway is the general apathy of their own sex. When- one fivst sees something of the political work done by women in London, one thinks it must be but a matter of days before they are put on tho sumo footing ns men In all branches of political life. But it docB not take long to discover that those women-workers are in a dc cided minority, that, even in their own rankB, many, while thoy would work themselves to death to secure the victory of liberals or tories, would fight as hard against their own emancipation, and that the great majority of women in I/Ondon have absolutely no sympathies one way or the other but are in a state ol complete and, for them, happy iinliifeience. — Klizubetli llobins Pennell, in Chautauquau.
