(Hliei hours 1 to 3 and 7 to .s |>. m Sooin 'twas my awn gort gran'fnither 1 whnt fust hoard the story front the very lips of Gammer Bassett, theer ban't no purtu kler call for tlisbclievin it, as I can sec*. Well. Gammer Bassett wns comin home from the Tavistock market, awver Whitchurch down, when what should hot- hear but the tantara of a horn, blowed so clear as a hell, an the \bay of hounds in full cry! Then theer suddenly streaked ah>n.<$ soijtethin gray, wi' frieht- ened e.tes an sides all wet with sweat. 5Vn the beast jumped up 'pon lop of n stone v\ all, right \loim side Mother Bus- sett, where she rode her pony. They had panniers in them days, the ways bein too ri.ugh most places for anything wi' .wheels So a sudden thought takes the auld vmnan, ai. lie gormed if she didn't pop out her hand an catch the hart; (for hare it -was). She catched un by the ears an popped un in the pannier, .an the \fieast 'peared to know as 'twas Iter awnly chance o' salvation an bided so quiet as a tame cat, while gammer she pushed on her pony un no doubt had a fine thought of a jugged hare come Sunday. 'Twas evenin time by all accounts an a lonesome part the road when the hoin went again, an afore she knawed it the auld woman seed u gett pack o' black hounds come a-tearin out the gran ite 'pon Pew Tor, as she passed near by on her way home. Black as the bottom of a bog thej was, wi' ruby red eyes an thin tails as trembled like whips o' fire. Course.she knawed them for devil's hounds, as anybody might, an, sure enough, theer coined a coal black chap arter 'em, an he sat upon n horse wi'mit no head, an the dame seed as his left foot were cloven in the stirrup. Devil or not, he weern't sniait enough to know she'd foxeil un an had the game hid in Iter pannier, for he coined up in a very gentlemanly way an axed if she'd chanced to see a hare 'pon the way. ' Dame, shiverin for fear, reckoned as weern't no gert harm to give the faither o' lies wan in his awn coin, so her tips an sez her'd seen nothin o' the sort at all. An the devil thanked her so civil as need be an blawed his horn an was gone wi' his dogs an his \ m-mint of a horse afore she'd time to cross her bosom or say a pra> er. Then, thinkin a gude deal 'pon such a strange thing, Gammer Bassett went along till she seed the lights o' Meri- vale, whefe she lived. Presently the moon rose awver the moor eilgge, whereupon chanced a 'mazin thing, for no sooner had the light failed in the pannier where thicky hare was than nj) coined the lid, an, instead of the hare, theer rose out a butivul gal—so bowerly a maid as ever you see—all dressed in white, wi' a gold hand across the forehead o' her. an her hair corn color under the moon, an her eyes, so gammer said to my gert-grandfaither, hrighter'n the evenin star. Mother Bassett seed as 'twas enchant incuts an set herself to her praj ers all she knawed, but the white lady spoke in :l pleasant fashion o' voice, an this is what she suid: \Auld woman, fear not when I tell you I be a spirit not o' this airth Por many thousand jears I have been doomed to pay for a crime done in my youth, an ha\e had to fly awver the moor, from Whitchurch to C ran mere pool, in the shape of a hare, while the faither o' evil an his archangels, in form o* hounds, hunted inc. But it was > decreed that if e\er I could let them pass . me by an see their tails vanish In the darkness my punishment should cease. Today, by your help, this end has been reached, an now I shall repair to the heavenly mansions. But think not that I be ungrateful. I owe you many thanks for your friendly help, an as it is in my power to grant them, ax o' me three favors an he sure that I shall grant them Speak!\ Course the young white lady spirit didn't talk in my common way—for her used the most butivai words as ever dame had heard—but that was the sense of what £he said. An ould woman she scratched her ear, an thoughted, an thoughted, an wished her might have had more time to consider such a gert matter. But she was full o' mother wit by all accounts, an soon had her wishes ready. \Ravin your presence,\ she sez, \if you'm in enrnest an not havin a joke wi* me, I'll nx these three thinggs—fust be pleased to let my hens lay twice so many eggs as any other body's.\ -The w Into ladj nodded. \Second I'll thank 'e to let my cows yield twice so much milk as any other body's cows.\ The white lady noded again. \Third as you'll kindly give me a sharper tongue in my denlin's wl' my auld man; for 'tis 'which he should' wi* us most times, an I alius have the worst on it.\ The white lady said: \Henceforth you shall always get the better of your \good man with your tongue* And one word more. You have outwitted the \devil Gammer Bassett, and he is one who never forgives an in jury. Therefore be cnutlous, and look to it you give him no chance or opportu nity to He even with you. Farewell!\ Then the nniKlen vanished like a moor mist 'fore a breath o' wind, an Gammer trudged home. Fust word she heard on irettincr theer was a iiura wair rrom her husband for bein so late;- but she'd got a harder ready for him. ah from that day over afterward, to tho wan when Gammer buried the-old blid.-he fouudJjhe'd.met-his.-. match an more'n his match in her tongue. Never was heard such razor words to Merivalo afore. An same wi' the fowls and the milk cows. The ghost, or whatever 'twas, kept her word by (rammer, an the eggs she got an the 'mazin showers o' milk her cows gived was a wonder o* the countryside for years an years. That's tho tale just as my gert-gran'- faither told my faither, nn I cnu't see as anybody's got any call not to b'lieve it, for never none feared a lie worse'n my gert-gran* faither. An as to repentin such a thing, 'tweern't in the nntuic of the man to do it.—Black and W mte ' Evidence of Ability. \And so j-ou think Horrocks is a man of motce tha.n ordinary intelligence?

LOVELY HYPOCRISY. .A.—.A. fill For Li hho [1! ftlttlt TrlekM Which Show Whnt a C onxninmnte ActrcKH Ih Pnttl. A dramatic writer of San Francisco tells tho following amusing story of Patti's lant visit to the Pa<ifi> coast. He was at the station with many others to meet the great diva win n she ar rived. \The diva stepped from the train,\ Hairl the San Franciscan, \and after inhaling a long frill of fog rtmarked: 'Oh, this is heaven! All my troubles are paid for. Thank heaven, I breathe the air of San Francisco once again!' This was all very sweet in the high priced canary bird, and the newspaper boys were all delighted. \However it was only a short tim« before I went down to the train to meet Patti at Suit Lake City. She was de scending from her car, and as her feet tonched the ground she exclaimed 'Thank heaven, I breathe the air of Salt Lake City once morel All my trou bles are paid for. Oh, this is heaven 1 ' Tho newspaper boys were all delighted with her. \As for myself, on both of these oc casions I was delighted also—with the diva's lovely hypocrisy, that accurstd sin which the poet tells ns takes the best men in. I never thought Tatti much of an actress, but I changed my mind in this respect after witnessing these two exhibitions.\ Nothing in the way of \lovely hy pocrisy\ can surprise anybody who has ever seen Patti on the concert stage. She rushes to the footlights, a vision of smiling radiance, eyes swimming with the moistnre of overpowering joy and a look of pleading affection on her coun tenance, as if the present moment vvero the happiest of her life and as if siie were consumed by an eager desire, to embrace and kiss everybody in the au dience. And she does it nil so naturally and spontaneonsly that tho majesty of the assemblage is instantly \mashed\ and wonld cheerfully lynch anybody who would intimate that there was any \aetinc\ about it. HER FACE WAS NOT FAIR. < By E. T. Carlton. \••.. : Y-...T*...T- -T-.-T'--T'- I was interested in a contract for grading a section of the Mexican na tional railway, south of the city of Monterey. One night our drove of mules wandered off. Early in the morning I started in one direct ion while .my partner went another to search for them. I traveled all day, but irtilod to catch sight of the mules. It was l» o'clock before I abandoned the chase and started on the return trip. The moon was at its full and would afford all the light I needed, yet I was feeling anything but light hearted at the prospect of the long trump before j me. TlnS-country was wila, the sneak lug coyote\^were Ijejwuing to howl on every side, nin^vloTjuLstill, I had lo pass through th©wnjrr\jpi]'k canyon. Ere I arrived atjthe canyon the twi light had faded and the moon was casting long, dnrl^ shadows from stunted trees and brush along the road side. 1 made good time, but with ev ery slop I grew more uneasy -more awake to the dangers to which I was exposed. The mountains were full of wild animals—catamounts and pun- SWINGING THK Bl'UNINO COAT. titers, and the dreaded mountain lion had been a number of times seen prowling about some ot the grading camps. One of these animals, a large old male, had for two or three mouths past been giving the graders much troul.il.- and uneasiness, hanging around their camps, wailing and watching lor the coveted opportunity to leap down upon some unsuspecting man or mule. .V number ot futile shots had been taken right my terrible antagonist with a possible show for life. As I ran I un- -vvxvund the long lariat from about my ^Wiiist and threw it again a-noVagnJitgJtj ^ projecting fockSfl-om the perpendic ular wall, \thinking to haul myself up to a place*of safety. This was a fail-, ure. I could not make the rope hold; I could lind no crevice or hole In the rocks. Seeing the beast again approaching, I was about ready to give up in de spair or turn- and have it out, with knife and club, in the open, when I saw some distance oeyond me that a deep gulch split the bluff in twain. I ran to the spot, resolved to make one more effort, and found that the rocky ledge abruptly terminated at the brink of a narrow, deep gully at the base of the farther bluff. . This gully or ravine, through which the mountain torrents found an outlet to the lower ground, was 12 or 15 feet wide. Just over the gully and some ten feet above tho brink, at the angle of the bluff, a great rock extended a rough but friendly arm, pointing up ward at an angle of about 45 degrees. It required very little time to double tho rope, throw the looped ond over the rock and swing off over the gulch. I struck the face of the bluff with force, but hold on to the rope and be gan climbing hand over hand for the rock above, which I mounted with no little dirliculty. The lion soon came up, and. after se lecting a footing on the brink of the gully from which to leap, crouched as for the siuing. then changed its mind and stood erect. It must have taken a mental measure of the distance separating us and decided the leap was beyond lis ability to accomplish. I was safe now, beyond the reach of the liuugij creature. The rocky walls on either side and above me were perpendicular and shielded me com pletely Only the prospect, fact rather, of having to pass the night on the narrow, nestlike rock, less than throe feet wide, attired as I was, made the situation unpleasant. It was a night to be remembered. The lion never left me, but alternately moved about restlessly, then stretched its long bod j out on the flat rocks for a few minutes at a time. Nor did I close in> eyes in sloop. A fall from the rock would have been the end of me Tho lion will skulk off with the com ing of day, thought I, and leave me free to go my way. But In this I was mistaken When daylight at last came, the persistent beast was still there and showing no intention of raising the siege. 1 began pelting the' brute with the few loose stones I could find and then with the long end of the rope. This servod only to infuriate the hungry creature and draw it nearer. Instsrntly the thought flashed into my mind: Why not lasso the gentleman? Why not rope him7 I can do it. One end of the lariat I made fast by a double turn aiomul the great rock, so arranged that I could draw in the at him ami once a trap sot tor his j s i. u .fc as I desired. At the other end I benefit had come near doing its work ! nm,!,. a small running noose—that Is, As it was the wily beast tore ilsel!' | smaller than one would use for lasso- DR. A.

I had about made up my mind, when tbe forbiddinu canyon loomed in sijjit. to no no farther, but to Knllier a quantity of wood, strike a lire anil re main by it until morulnjr At Ibis- mo- ! meiit a slight noise in the directum of the cut, a noise as ot small stones and gravel rolling do - vu a declivity, star tied me violently. I halted suddenly and peered nervously along tbe big road. At lirst I could see nothing. Then, looking long and stea.Hlj, a dark object in the road, a mere shadow at the distance, seemed to movi>. ('ould it be only a shadow cast from some elevated rock or cliff point which my imagination had conjured into something terrible? It required only the fraction of n second longer to de cide the question. It was the long, dark body of some kind of animal, some monster of the mountains, and i« was coming toward me. I could sec it now distinctly in the moonlit road ! My lirst thought was to ttirn and run j for life, b]jt I reileeted that if I did so. ; iT 1 turned my back to retreat, the ter- ! rible creature would instantly chase me. 1 walked backward several stops, nty the time looking straight at the lion, for such it proved to be—a mountain lion. The cunning beast was out for hi« supper evidently and was not disposed to allow me to walk away from him. for he at once quickened his steps. Then it was I put on a bold frout, sum moned all the courage 1 could com mand and made a desperate eu'ort to frighten the animal away. I ran toward it, swinging the drib threaten- i lngly and screaming and yelling fran tically at every jump. 1 hoped to see the ugly thing tuck its tail between its legs and be off, but it did nothing of the kind, and I came near precipitating a combat that could have had but one ending—a fatal one to me. The neast merely crouched as for a powerful spring, its great, fierce eyes fairly dancing in Its head the closer I came. There was no chance now to retreat. I wns within 30 feet of the foe and expected at every breath to be pounced upon and torn to pieces. For a wonder, my wits did not leave me. In fact, I don't believe I realized the fullness of my danger. I snaleh«».l the coat from my back and hurriedly struck a match and set it on fire. Being of light material, it flamed up readily. Swinging the burning coat, I ran at the lion again, yelling and screaming as before. This act saved me. With a savage growl or snarl the beast bounded off up the road for 50 yards or more and stopped. The coat soon burned out and loft me In practically the same condition as at first sight of the lion. I took off another garment, a shirt, and prepared to repeat the fire per foriuancc. When it came as near as I dared allow, I did as before, with likq result, only that the flame was not so hrlght, and the beast moved off more slowly and not so far. The crisis ,was close at -hand knew it could not be far off. I might burn the remainder of my clothing-^- trousers and underwear—but this would only delay for a few minutes the final encounter. I ran wildly alon a narrow, flat ledjjo of rock at the foot of the high bluffs looking for and hop ing to find some vantage ground—an overhanging arm or jutting rock, any thine, high or low. from which I could I ing entile on horses. This done, I coil- I td the strong rope in regulation style j nnd let tiy with the loop end at the lion's head. The cramped position in ' tvbieh I stood prevented accurate ! throwing, and I missed the mark, the j rope falling aerosn the animal's back* For an hour I kept up the exciting ; nnd, to me. unique sport, coiling and i ibrowing the rope, sometimes landing j the noose at the proper place, to see i it deftly thrown off ere it could be i draw n Finally tbe rope fell true. The lion made a frantic lunge and in such man ner as to effectually draw the noose, lie was caught Never have I, before or since, seen j such a display of violent madness com V V y T • T • T DoesYoup eaflAchei N Are your nerves weak?

It leaped and tumbled and bellowed and fought and frothed at the mouth, rolled up near the edge of the gully and ere I could pull in the slack bounded off to tbe end of the rope, to be throw n a double somersault by the recoil, risiug to repeat the mad efforts to free itself. I began hauling in the slack of the rope as each inward movement gave me opportunity, sometimes a yard, then a foot, always keeping the ropo drawn taut and allowing the beast no time for using its teeth. The hauling in was slow work, but 1 knew I had him. As he began to tire from his frautlo exertions he would throw his full weight against the ropo and there hang until breathing became too difficult because of the pressure of the rope, when he would make another spring, only to lose another slice of territory. I kept working in tills manqer until the lion was oil the very edge of the gully and one more leap would svying him into the air. I managed to get a half hitch iq • tho taut drawn rope with the long club, and, placing one end against tho rock, formed a Iejjer of considerable power. Then, throwing my weight ngainst It, I could feel the rope slowly giving. Seeing that ho eould hold his position no longer, the lion gave an awful cry and sprang for the rocK on which I stood, missing the mark by less than a foot, to fall heavily to the rope's end and destruction. ' I waited on the rock until the beast's struggles subsided, or partially so, when I came down and with my knife made sure of my capture.
