Henry Sutton and Dan Hart, two boys, had a desperate encounter with a bear that attacked them in a dense undergrowth. They could not escape and had to fight for their lives. Hart wounded the animal which became more furious and struck at Sutton, who plunged a knife into it. Hart fired again and then the bear struck Sutton a blow that sent him 10 feet. Bruin was on the point of killing Sutton when a lucky shot from Hart dispatched him. The bear weighed 582 pounlds and measured 5 feet 10 Inches. Near by was a cave in which were a female bear with cubs, which accounted for the attack. The Santa Fe Route is selling excursion tickets to Nashville,- Tenn., and return, account the exposition.

HOT WEATHER DRINKS. New Decoctions Concocted at the Soda Fountains. Majority Do Not Cool, Rather Heat. But Persons Make a Mistake With Sugar or Syrnp as Constitutional Parts Avoid Alcoholic Drinks. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch says: Now is the season when the human animal hies himself hastily and frequently to the bar-room or the soda fountain and absorbs large quantities of that ensnaring compound called the summer drink. Hot weather makes man thirsty and thirsty man wants a cooling drink. Moreover, he wants it flavored and he wants it sweet womankind is likewise affected probably more so. People resort to the saloon, the drug store and the beer garden and think that while they are quenching their thirst they are also lowering their temperature, but in this they are sadly deluded. All alcoholic drinks and drinks with sugar or syrup in them, no matter how cold shaved ice has made them, are really simply so much fuel added to the internal fires they are intended to subdue. Perhaps the most wholesome of summer drinks, pure water accepted, are the plain mineral waters, unflavored and unsweetened. Attention was called by a druggist to one advantage derived from the use of mineral waters, and that was that they supplied the organs of the body with the salts necessary to retain them in healthy condition, salts which for the most part are thrown off with perspiration through the pores of the skin in hot weather. However, as all the doctors know, it is of no use to preach sanitary gospel to the man that thirsteth. He will take whatever the parched palate seems to crave, and take it as often as he has the price thereof, reveling in the pleasure of the moment and reckless of the suffering sure to follow. The ingenuity of the "barkeep" who runs the soda water fountain has long ago been exhausted in inventing new, mysterious compounds wherewith to beguile the summer wayfarer. All the combinations of fruits, syrups, phosphates and carbon waters have been made over and over again, all that is new are the names. An old drink under a new name tastes as sweet and every owner of a soda water lay-out makes names to suit himself. Among what are called the new "soft" drinks of the season is "mintine," the foundation of which is a syrup made of crushed green mint and acid phosphate. Soda water is added, a slice of orange floated on the froth and a sprig of mint stuck into it. To the casual observer a mintine bears a remarkable family resemblance to the mint julep. Another so-called new beverage bears the pious title of "Cherry Sunday." This is made of a layer of ice cream, a layer of crushed and seeded cherries and a layer of cream. Plans and specifications for the "tally ho" consist of one egg, syrup made of lemon, pineapple and orange, a spoonful of ice cream soda water and a sprinkling of nutmeg or cinnamon. "Delmonico's at 6" is an importation from the effete east. Its component parts are syrup made of chocolate, lemon, orange and pineapple, a spoonful of ice cream and nutmeg on top of the soda. Not much of a variation or improvement on the "tally ho." The "polar wave" has an alluring sound when the thermometer does not know whether to stand at 95 or go higher, and has the slightly wicked spice of "claret syrup" in its make-up. The other ingredients are acid phosphate, shaved ice, soda water and a slice of orange. The "polar wave" flows to its destination through straws, and persons who have tried it say they don't even have to close their eyes to imagine they are drinking claret punch. But all these strange concoctions are but devices to trap the young and inex perienced. The veteran patron of the soda fountain takes no heed of them, but orders his soda lemonade or his egg phosphate or some other phosphate as of old. Acid phosphates continue to grow in popularity and are said to be wholesome. All the beverages thus far mentioned have their staunch friends and admirers, but towering high above, queen regent over them all, sits her august majesty, the Ice Cream Soda. Drinks may come and drinks may go, but she will stay forever. It is a matter of some difficulty to classify this frothy favorite of the summer girl and her young man. There is grave doubt whether a chunk of ice cream with a jet of carbonic acid gas shot into it can be properly called a drink. It might be a confection, or a pudding, but certainly nobody can drink It it must be eaten with a spoon like mush. It doesn't make much difference, however, to what category it belongs, ice cream soda is far and away the leader among the "coolers" of the drug store. It cannot be denied that a large portion of the male population and a few of the other sex seek to dodge the extraneous heat by drinking mixtures more or less tinctured with alcohol, and these misguided folk surely make trouble for themselves. However disguised, alcohol remains the same and produces the same effect, which is to heat the blood and befuddle the brain. With the hot weather there comes a change in the orders which the bartender has to fill. The customer thinks he must have a "'cooling" drink and a "long" one and so during the sultry July days and nights he abstains from whisky straight and gin and bitters and taxes his gastronomic machinery with gin fizzes, rick-eys, Remsen coolers, Tom Collinses, ap-polinaris lemonades, with sticks in them, mint juleps and all sorts of mixtures, into which ice and seltzer can be incorporated. For all of which he is sorry later. The latest creation to be had at the bars Is called a "horse neck." It consists chiefly of the rind of a lemon, ice and a bottle of ginger ale.

ARRESTED A G. A. R. POST. A Solitary Green Policeman Draws His Club and Marches 21 Veterans to JaiL New York. July 9. Twenty-one G. A. R. veterans belonging to Judson Kil-patrick post of Harlem, and their fife and drum corps, numbering 25, were arrested while parading Upper Seventh avenue, and were marched to a station house. The arrest was made single-handed ty Policeman Thornton, a recent acquisition to the police force. He heard the soldiers approaching, and, drawing his club, advanced bravely to meet them. "Stop!" he shouted, waving his club. The fifes and drums ceased as the columns came to a halt. "Where's your permit to parade the streets?" said Thornton. "The Grand Army needs no permit to parade," Commander Clausen replied. "But you have no right to parade at 4:30 in the morning, when citizens want to sleep." When the head of the procession was opposite the station house Sergeant Osborne was almost paralyzed to hear the sharp command, "Left wheel!" On they marched across the sidewalk, up the steps and into the station house, with shrieking fife and booming drum. The veterans lined up in front of the desk, and at the command came to "parade rest." When the sergeant managed to find his voice he said: "What is all this?" "Parading without a permit,'?, said Policeman Thornton.' vV "This is Judson Kilpatriek Post of the G. A. R., and you know what that means," said Commander Clausen. Then Sergeant Osborne read to Policeman Thornton the section of the police rules which exempts the Grand Army from the regulation requiring a permit to parade. He followed up the reading with a few remarks to the policeman and dismissed "his charge. OUT DOOR "SCHOOLS." One Thing the Civic Clubs Are Doing at Pittsburg. Pittsburg, July 9. The little folks of the city who know no other summer resorts than the hot streets and alleys are the special object of interest of the educational department of the Civic club. A meeting was held yesterday afternoon at the Twentieth Century club, and the board of directors formally accepted the large grounds about the Fifth ward school, Allegheny, as the site for a summer kindergarten. It is expected that the Forbes school will be secured this week for the same purpose. The Ralston school was opened yesterday morning. There were sand piles, games and toys provided and swings are to be added in a day or two. The news of the opening spread rapidly and over 30 children promptly put in an appearance to enjoy the pleasures provided for them. Bare feet and a small amount of clothing only added to the comfort of these pupils. A number of them carried a small brother or sister, and could only indulge in such plays as would permit them at the same time to "take care of the baby." For these little nurses there are to be benches and special amusements provided. In these out-door schools the kindergarten songs are sung, the games played and the little pupils made as happy as possible. There are no books, and nothing that suggests work. It is hoped that the other two schools can be opened next week. Enough funds have already been contributed to run one school, but all three will be opened with the earnest hdpe that funds will be provided for suteh a Worthy cause. The expenses" incurred are for teachers' salaries, games, toys, and kindred equipments. , SENATOR TELLER'SCHARGE Says the TarifFBill is Insufficient for Revenue Purposes. The Washington Post says of Monday's debate on the tariff bill: "If any senator In charge of this bill," said Senator Teller In a speech on the floor, "will rise in his seat and tell us this bill will bring in sufficient revenue during the present fiscal year I will gladly listen to such a statement." Nobody rose. Senator Allison sat silent, nervously chewing the ends of his mustache. The trouble is that the bill will not bring in revenue enough, and the members of the finance committee know it. Senator Allison's silence gave Mr. Teller an opportunity to prod deeper. "The committee has dropped the duty on tea," said he, "because a tea tax and a stamp tax together are entirely too reminiscent of revolutionary days. We might have had a beer tax, as we ought to have," he added, "but for the fact that an election is coming on this fall in a great! state, and it is not deemed wise to offend the large portion of its population which does not believe in a tax on beer." At this shot Senator Hanna smiled grimly. CHRISTIAN SCIENTISTS. Several Thousnnd Believers Call on Mrs. Eddy, Founder of Their Faith. Concorn, N. H., July 9. Between 2,000 and 3,000 Christian Scientists flocked to this city on special and regular trains Monday to greet the founder of their faith, Mrs. Mary Baker Eddy. It has been the custom for several years for members of the Boston branch to make this July pilgrimage, but this year the invitation was given a wider scope, and all parts of the country were represented in the throng on the lawns about "Mother Eddy's" magnificent residence on the hills that surround the city. Local clergymen were conspicuous by their absence, but the city was represented by its mayor. Albert B. Woodworth, who delivered an address of welcome. In which he alluded to Mrs. Eddy in terms of highest praise. Judge R. S. Hanna of Boston, one of the leading lights of the Christian Science church, made a response, after which Mrs. Eddy herself spoke. Her address was principally devoted to a statistical and historical resume of the origin, rise and present prosperous condition of Christian Science. All the time that these exercises were in progress the thermometer stood at very nearly 100 in the shade, but the enthusiasm of Mrs. Eddy's disciples was not one whit abated thereby.

Secretary Turner of the Railroad Commission Calls Attention to Some Points in the Railroad Law. He Holds That the Board Has All the Power Necessary for Regulating the Kates. Secretary R. W. Turner of the state board of railroad commissioners takes issues with those persons who are disposed to criticise the board and regard it as an unnecessary adjunct of the state government. He has prepared a statement in which he says: "It appears to me that Tnost of the discussion that has taken place in the newspapers relative to the rate question in the state is indulged in by many persons who either ignore the existing law or persons who are not familiar with it. The board of railroad commissioners cannot act on their own motion in matters relating to transportation, but that they can act if any violation of the law of 1S83, as to carrying freight, is properly brought before them, there is no doubt. Neither is there a doubt as to their power in the premises." Continuing, Mr. Turner goes into a lengthy discussion of the state law governing the action of the board and holds that the board, under the decision of the supreme court in the Symns Grocer company case, is clothed with ample power. Mr. Turner relies upon the following statement in the opinion of the court: "Although not clothed with all the functions of a court, they are authorized to determine what are just and reasonable rates. In a certain sense, they are the guardians erf the public for the protection of shippers and patrons.Their determination is binding and conclusive unless the railroad companies can show that their findings and decisions are unjust and unreasonable." He then says: "This, in my opinion, is all that a maximum freight rate bill could do; and while a law could be passed, the provisions of which would be easier of application, yet under the present law, pewer is conferred if complainants follow the rules laid down by the statute. "These rules provide that the commissioners can act in such cases upon the complaint and application of the mayor and council, or the trustee of any township; and that the mayor and council, or trustee of any township can be required to make such complaint before the board of commissioners upon the petition of any 25 or more legal voters of any such city or township." Mr. Turner closes his "statement" by saying: "During the five months that I have been connected with the commission, not a solitary complaint has been made to this board. Numerous letters and inquiries from individuals relative to freight rates and discriminations and many other matters as to depots, station agents, etc., have been received, but no valid complaint that under the law would give this commission jurisdiction as to examination of freight rates has been made to this commis Now in would spend for pair of shoes, or on for your wife or case, , "seeing is be 75 cts 75 cts $1.48 $1.69 La Belle Crepon, 30 inches wide, ele-gant styles, fast colors, worth 12c 24-in. 26-in. .... fs t tmiu 22-in. vm VsWjA.

Without exception when such letters were received, they have been given prompt attention by the commissioners, and the companies complained of notified of the contents of such communication and requested to communicate to the commission such answer as they may care to make in explanation of the matters charged in such letters. In nearly every instance, after the lapse of a few weeks, the writers of the letters would notify the commission that upon consideration, they didn't care to formally press the matters complained of in the letter. "There is a great deal of newspaper comment and some correspondence to newspapers over the names of 'Taxpayer,' 'Citizen,' and the like, all discussing what ought to be done, and wnat they, 'Taxpayer,' and 'Citizen,' would do if members of the commission; but at least 90 per cent of such writings have absolutely no relation to existing laws and conditions, and are largely indulged in by persons who have given no study to the question.The board of railroad commissioners cannot act except upon complaint in due form of law, and if "Taxpayer" and 'Citizen' are aggrieved by existing freight rates the wav is open for them to formally bring the matter before the railroad commissioners for examination, and such action on their part would be more effective in determining the rights of all parties affected by this question than all the newspaper correspondence they might otherwise indulge in."

REV. ROCKWELL SHOCKED. Saw a Woman Behind a Gauze Sheeting in Front of a Coney Island Show. New York, July 9. A show, some features of which, it is alleged, were immoral, was stopped at Coney Island last night at the instance of the Rev. F. D. Rockwell, president of the law and order society of Brooklyn. He was reconnoitring on the Bowery, when he saw on Bushman's walk the form of a woman distinctly visible behind a sheeting of gauze, with an electric light as a background. The barker was taking a rest, trusting to the mute attraction of the woman to draw a crowd. There was a skirt about the woman's form reaching a little below the hips. The minister succeeded in putting an end to the exhibition with great promptitude. Then the barker came to life. "Step right in, ladies and gents," he said softly and politely. "The show outside, the free exhibition that we have been giving you, has been stopped by those who do not appreciate it. The show inside, the real show, take my-word for it, goes on now. Step in and be entertained." His politeness did not avail him, for Detective Backus stepped up and ordered the show to close up altogether. It closed up. BURNING BED Of Mortar Engulfed the Child Who was Playing. ' Jeffersonville, Ind., July 9. Raymond Green, 5 years old, this evening was at play around a mortar bed, which had been filled with lime and was undergoing the slacking process.

They went to the child's rescue, but before he could be taken out of the boiling bed he was burned almost to a crisp and his limbs and arms badly distorted. No hope is entertained for his recovery.
