Up tho beach they went for . a mile or more, then inland over a nook of land, ' and as they approached a rocky ridge the hunter spoke to the dogs, warning them to keep quiet, and looked carefully over.

Jaquin, a buyer for a New York fur .house, to a New York Sun ? reporter^ 'and, although the man who owned it had already received 500 dol. for killing the bear that wore the skin, he refused to accept my offer. There 'was nothing in the quality of the 'skin that gave it value. Its extra ordinary size' was what made me want it. The' skin came- off of what was un doubtedly the ';- biggest bear that was ever killed on this continent. I did not see the bear, tor it had been killed two or three weoks before I got out ' there, and I rode 20 miles on horseback to see '.the skin, which was about all the people along Battle Creek were talking about just then. : The head had been out from the skin, whioh rod flood its length by 2 feet, but as it was it' measured nearly 12 feet in length.

Coupled with this demand was an inti mation that, failing a favorable answer within 24 houra, Mr. Petro, our Minister, would . leave the capital with the whole staff of the legation, and await further developments at Vigo. .

Whatever might be the precise significance of the language, nobody doubted that practically if Portugal did not yield, and 'our Minister went to Vigo, wo should bo in a state of war with Portugal.

A BUSH IDYLL. o . When we have developed our Australian Bret . wHarte, scones such as those depioted by our artist above will, no doubt, be brought home to ''many readers who otherwise would have but a. I hazy idea , of the meaning of the phrase '. 'lambing down.' We do not know whether the phrase is indigenous, though there is a pas toral ring about it which would seem to justify this conclusion. ' The practice which it describes ,is not unknown in other lands, but the name by which it has become familiar throughout Aus tralia was, we may suppose, struck off in a happy vein of inspiration by some ' shiftless' shepherd, who, like an innocent lamb, had passed. under .the shears of an experienced master of the' art of fleeoingi Happily the colony of Victoria is now comparatively free from those harpies, who under the protection of a liquor, licence prey upon unfortunate buBhmen, and drag their hard earned wages from them by dint of vile liquor and rascality combined. Probably a few sh...
