The Antlers and opening act Little Scream each filled the large upstairs "sanctuary" area of Philadelphia's First Unitarian Church with climbing, skyward-driven sounds Wednesday. Under the high ceiling of the edifice (dating from 1796), which vaults majestically over the church space (complete with pews for seating), an adjective such as soaring seems practically mandatory if at all applicable to music played therein. The set from the Antlers, showcasing their second album, Burst Apart , amply justified such description.

In the woods, there are paths. Seafarers have charts. But how does an antler salesman from rural central Pennsylvania navigate the bewildering suburban sprawl of metropolitan Philadelphia and transport himself to the Valley Forge Convention Center in King of Prussia, venue for the Valley Forge Sports, Recreation and Outdoor Show? "Yer roads here are the damndest things," said Gary Knepp, the proprietor of Wild 'N' Wonderful Whitetails of Newport, Pa. "The other day, it's like 'All right, I kin see my motel, but how in the heck do I get there?

The first three elk to be raised commercially in the region graze these days on a farm in northwestern Chester County. "There are 250 of them in the wild in Pennsylvania," state Game Commission officer Michael J. Doherty said one morning last week as he watched the three prance around. The only other such farmland elk, he said, are "in Centre County - that I'm aware of. " A few entrepreneurs in the region are raising animals strange to Pennsylvania farmland - bison, emu, rhea - for their low-fat meat.

OK, so their real names are Peaches and Ruby and the like. And they live on a ranch in Redmond, Ore., not on the North Pole. But the five antlered beasts set to visit Suburban Square in Ardmore today and tomorrow and the Springfield Park Shopping Center in Delaware County on Sunday are genuine reindeer, and as such will give life to the Christmas fantasy of Saint Nick and his legion of sleigh pullers. And they even borrow the names of Santa's crew. They won't fly, but who would expect it?

Just after midnight on Saturday, a Radnor man was jolted awake by a loud thud at the back door of his house on the 700 block of Bryn Mawr Avenue. He suspected the worst - a burglary was in progress. So he called Radnor police and told them about his plight. Several officers arrived on the scene minutes later, and thoroughly searched the house and the yard. They couldn't find any burglars, and couldn't find any signs of forced entry into the house. Police were about ready to call off the investigation when they noticed a key piece of evidence that the intruder left in the grass, just a few feet from the rear sliding glass doors to the house.

BOISE, Idaho - A woman was able to escape an attack by a mule deer after a passer-by and his daughter fought off the buck, grabbing the antlers and striking it with a hammer until it fled, state wildlife officials said. Sue Panter was on a stroll near her home in rural southeastern Idaho when the buck attacked, raking her body with his antlers and goring her legs, officials said. Michael Vaughan and his 17-year-old daughter, Alexis, spotted the struggle early Friday and tried to intervene, the state Department of Fish and Game said in a statement on Sunday.

For centuries, the male of the human species has turned to a variety of natural products to enhance his ability to er, um, perform. The main problem with that isn't the products' dubious effectiveness. The problem is that animals from a lot of other species have been sacrificed just so Joe and the missus can try to get cozy on Saturday night. We're talking about ground-up sea horses and green turtles. Essential bits of tigers and rhinos. And don't forget that ever-popular libido booster - the male seal's member.

At an herbal shop on Arch Street in Chinatown, owners report sluggish sales of a red, powdered medicine called "Strong Man. " On the docks of Newfoundland, fishermen are finding it harder to peddle the private parts of seals. And on the plains of western Alaska, the trade in reindeer antlers has plummeted. A possible reason behind all three, according to researchers: Viagra. The popular impotence drug may be reducing demand for traditional Chinese impotence remedies, many of which contain ground-up animal parts.

IMAGINE AN ELK whose antlers sprawl upward and outward like a 10-story apartment building. Then imagine there are inhabitants of those antlers - birds and squirrels and people who built a child's tree house and left it there. Now try to see yourself wearing "The Elk With Antlers That Never Stopped Growing," a piece of 21st-century art jewelry that encircles your head and neck like a whimsical bramble bush.

Fred Ulmer, who spent a lifetime living with animals, working with animals, studying animals, is back where the love affair was first kindled more than 65 years ago. The retired curator of mammals at the Philadelphia Zoo has returned as a volunteer at the Academy of Natural Sciences, where he once roamed as a child and snared his first job after high school. And Ulmer has brought some old zoo buddies to the academy with him. "This is Bolivar. He lived at the zoo for about 30 years," says Ulmer, rolling open a large drawer containing bear skins.

VIJAY SINGH sued the PGA Tour yesterday for exposing him to "public humiliation and ridicule" during a 12-week investigation into his use of deer-antler spray that ended last week when the tour dropped its case against him. The lawsuit was a surprise, and so was the timing - the day before The Players Championship, the flagship event on the PGA Tour held on its home course in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., where Singh has honed his game for the last...

NEW ORLEANS - Smiling, even laughing, at questions about a report linking him to a company that purports to make performance-enhancers, Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis said Wednesday he "never, ever took" the stuff. Lewis described himself as "agitated," not angry, that the Sports Illustrated story has become part of the Super Bowl-week prelude to Baltimore's game against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. The magazine said Lewis sought help from a company that says its deer-antler spray and pills contain a banned product connected to human growth hormone.

THE PLOT thickens. On the day after Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis denied using deer-antler spray, golfer Vijay Singh said he did. The spray, manufactured by Sports with Alternatives to Steroids (SWATS), contains IGF-1, a performance-enhancing substance banned by Major League baseball and the PGA Tour. On Tuesday, Lewis denied a Sports Illustrated report that he had purchased the spray from SWATS co-owner Mitch Ross to hasten his recovery from a torn right triceps he suffered in October.

A Doylestown man hunting elk for the first time bagged the largest elk of the state season, weighing about 930 pounds. "There are only 18 tags, and I was lucky to get one," said William Zee, referring to the lottery for licenses to hunt antlered elk. The Pennsylvania Game Commission also issued 38 licenses for antlerless elk. Zee, who usually hunts whitetail deer, said he took his rifle and bow on this hunting trip. He shot the elk Nov. 1 in Goshen Township, Clearfield County.

If John Ford were alive and working today, he'd probably want Explosions in the Sky to score the soundtracks to his movies. The director known for his long deep shots of the American prairie's wide open vistas in epic films such as Stagecoach and The Grapes of Wrath would have loved the Texas instrumental quintet's provocative brand of lonely but lively ambience - the likes of which were on grand display at the Tower Theater on Sunday night....

Of all the '80s-inspired acts to come from the class of 2003-05, Birmingham, England's Editors had it the hardest. They weren't as flashy as their contemporaries such as Franz Ferdinand. They weren't as political as Bloc Party or as poppy as Kaiser Chiefs. Editors didn't even have quite the same danceable robo-disco thrust as the others. What Editors did have was an impressive dedication to Joy Division's bleak, atmospheric brand of post-punk with a vocalist and lyricist (baritone Tom Smith)
