WITH LOCKED ANTLERS. How a Deapral. Kattte lletweeu' Hacks tame to n End. A surveying party workmg for the Bear Valiey Company up Millard's canyon were lately treated to a sight which seldom conies to men in this cental- of civilization, says the Banning (Cal.) Herald, i The men were working up the canyon about a mile above the Millard house when they heard a peculiar crashing noise. Looking up, they saw on the cliffs high above the stream end about a quarter of a mile from them two noble bucks standing with heads lowered about ten feet from each other. Thus they stood, eyeing each other and pawing the dirt for fully a minute. Then they made a simultaneous simulta-neous spring and came together with a noise like a falling tree. So violent was the concussion that the animals were thrown back until a distance of ten or fifteen feet again intervened between be-tween them. The men, fascinated with the sight, watched the deer go through the tame performance again and agaiD. Finally, alter a more than usually violent rush, the bucks did -not separate, sepa-rate, but struggled as if apparently trying to push each other back. H soon became plain to the men, how-' ever, that instead yf pushing they were pulling away from each other. In other words, their horns had become locked, and from raging combatants tho bucks became frightened animals and were enly bent upon securing a divorce. Messrs. Ross, Pollock and party then conceived the idee, of taking advantage of the helpless condition of the bucks nd capturing them. Tliey niad-3 a great rush for the- scene, but beicre they reached it the deer in their struggles . approached too . near the edge of the cliff and both of them fell to their death in the pool below. When the party reached the water tho deer were found locked in each other's horns, quite dead. j . t $ i - i The gentlemen thought to'skinlke deer aud bring in, the hides to lend an air of authenticity to the tale, but the law is so strict as to having in your possession the hidd of a aewly-leceased dear, no matter whether th& deer dies of la grippe, commits suicide, or falls out of a balloon, that they forbore.
