Jones, who lives near Perhama, Crook county^ had a rather startling adventure 'with a cougar. He was speaking, of his experience to some friends and' Said: "I motmtt-l a horse and went on a hunting expedition to a place ahout 20 miles from Perhama, taking with me an Irish staghound and an English pointer. I brought down a deer and a brown bear, which I left at a farmhouse, and bagged a number of wild pigeons and other fowl. While returning home ahout Iff" o'clock at m'ght along a lonely road about five miles from Perhama, I noticed what seemed to be two balls of fire in a tree but a yard ahead of me, and which stood but a foot or two from the road. At the same instant my horse, which is what is known in the 'cow counties' as un 'original herder,' drew up with a Startled neigh, almost throwing me from the saddle. I took a close look at the thing in the tree and saw that it was a cougar crouched for a spring. "As I tried to unstrap my rifle the animal sprang, but missed its mark arid passed just over the horse's neck and ahout two inches from me, It rolled in the road, but recovered and sprang a'gainY this time at the horse's throat. The horse bucked and threw/ me to the ground, half stunning me. The cougar then rushedVupon me,, but the staghound, which had been standing 'by, buying furiously, corralled it. ' There \v»s a brief but terrific fight, and tho do;.; lay dead not five feet from mo. Tho poinlur had disappeared,' while the horse utoo'd; trembling iu every limb. The panther again sprang at him, landing upon his back, and away the wuijt. "I recovered my 'feet uj a fo u- i-iii 1 unstrapped lity riflu " u. fc siariod Hi, suit. Five hundred yunis from the tiuo'nu of 'the encounter I found the horse b'f anil- ing still and' the cougar lying do.tU ,Ut hie feet. The horse bore inarlca of the cougar's claws upou his back, flesh was torn in several places.- The cougar's head was smashed, presumably by the horse's heels. I cannot at count for the result of the strange encouiitur \except by the theory that a limb of u (large oak tree, haiiKing low and directly j'over the road, struck the cougar autl / swept it off the horae's back, aud UJH | horse took advantage of the opportunity ' to trample -him to death.

It is simply the revival of an old custom. We are told that in Frande when the great joints grew distasteful and small dishes took their place decorations of the ta"ble ihanged tob. Permanent pieces called "dorrnants/ 1 or "surtouts," made of crystal and mounted in silver were placed in the middle of the table, and from them branched candelabra of gilt and silver, vases filled with flowers, tiny trays cov- st ed with sweetmeats, or hero and there statuettes. & Finally the surtout grew so large that It almost covered the table. People at last grew tired of the monotony of this ornament, no matter how artistic it might be, and instead tho center of the table was often covered with a layer of potter's clay, in which a florist woiilcl set cut flowers in any design that pleased. him. Artists were often employed t« decorate tho table, the center .of which would be covered with temples, bridges, amphitheaters or emblematic groups of figures, all made of paste. Sometimes tho artist would represent 3 landscape covered with snow.. M. Carada invented an artificial hoarfrost, which was melted by the heat of tho room, during which 'process the gucstsi saw the thawing of the river and tho budding of the trees and flowers as epriug succeeded winter. There were also the '"Sableurs," who, by means of beautifully colored sands, powdered marbles, ground glass, beada and bread crumbs, 'made very ingenious figures .upon-the table cloths.—Harper's EaKar. this is tho first _ fighting a cougar.

A SIoiiKter Owl Killed In tlio CuttdcUlii. Henry E. .McKeuzio of Port Ewon came lip the U. and D.'railroad, as far aa Olive Branch for the. purpose of shooting game. While out in the woods noiir Brown's Station a ,1'urgu bird flew over his head. McKenzie fired and succeeded in injuring one of his wings, causing it to drop in a woods near by. Ho quickly ran to Where it fell for the purpose of securing it. When he reached tho spot, he made an attempt to get it, but it sprang at him in such a furious manner as to cause him some alarm and a great deal of anxiety as to his personal safety. With the aid of his companion, Edr ward Davis of Olivn, and a long pola they succeeded in turning the bird on its back and tying its feet with a piece of rope, thus rendering it helpless and safe to carry. It turned out to be a great owl, a bird rarely seen outside of British America, its natural habitation. Its wing 'measurement is 5 feet, it stands nearly 3i .feet high uud has a head about 18 inches'ih circumference, surmounted in two large horns. Tho only injury done the bird was a slight wound about the left wing, aud ic way taken to Port Ewen by Mr. McKenzio, where he haait on exhibition. Many people who have visited Central park and seen the many curious owls there say that nothing like it, either, as to size or rotiomblance, ia on exhibition.—Pine Hill Son tin el.

One day the latter wore a pair of richly embroidered stockings, with low shoes to set them off to better advantage.
