Well I stood still and there was a glorionsthrealing
among the laurels; when an at once I heard . the
panther take up a tree.' I heard his nails nett the

rather than keep watch at thetree an night; and so
I drew up, and took the beat aim I could and iced
away. Well, the devilish rascal never seined: I
said t. Myself, I am slue I can't have massed you.
In a short time 1 saw a motion in his tan, which
hung over the limb on which he lay, and toxin after
I could hear his nails gritting on the bark, and 1
maw his body bqin to slide roofed the limb till at
last he slang fairly ander it, suspended by his
claws, and in a minute, after he let go his hold mid
down he came, sense! so neatly died that when
I ran to keep Toby from taking hold of hire (for
they are a devilish thing to fight and Iran tear a dog
to pieces is no time) found him unable pix aback
out a claw. I knew that I void' find the place
again. and so I just let him lay where he fell, and
I went bi;rir to the bock, mid made a good fire Ind

Well, the next ramming staiied bright and ear-

panthers. It appeared as if they had been Cueing
about separately, and had kept ;mond the swamp
nearly all night; bat at last they got together and
stetted off. As soon as I got on the track I followed
