their scampering terror jumped clear
of the stream. Turtles dried their

and the other on the land, a man
stood. He was lean and sad, with a
grizzled gray beard that had once been
red, a yellow complexion that had once
been fair, and weak, watery eyes that
had once been clear and strong. He
held a hois d'arc stick in his hand, and
troubled the water with it. The tur
tles tumbled from their log at the sig
nal and swam to him. There were
four of them. He caught each by a
flipper, and, lifting it up, placed it on
the tree. Leaning against a limb and
extending his legs along the trunk, he
stuck the stick 011 the toe of his boot.
They crawled to him, clambered 011 his
legs and was trying to reach his face,
like a pet dog caressing a child. He
gave them no food and did not speak a
word. After playing with them for
half an hour, lie rose and touched the
water with his stick, when they rolled
off and swam away.

back, he began the ascent, pulling up
by the bushes on both sides of a well
worn path. The route was tortuous—
around rocks, down rocks, and over
rocks; but we gained the summit, a
plateau half a mile in circumference.
In the middle stood a hut of rough
hoards built against a solitary pro
jecting rock. The door stood open.
He entered. I waited, hesitating.
Ten minutes' waiting made me anx
ious. I went up and looked in. There
was a split-bottom chair, a low stool—
nothing else. I entered and searched
tho room. Tho man was not there.
Turning to go out, I saw in the door a
voung girl. She was bare-footed, bare
headed, auburn-haired, black-eyed,
slatternly dressed in a dingy calico
slip, but tho prettiest little slattern I

"I mean the other one."
"There is no other one. You are the
only one. Come, sit at my feet 011 this

arm, she set me down where she had
bidden. She then seated herself in the,
chair, and, placing her feet in my lap,
"Ain't they protty?"
"They are, indeed," I answered; "but
your face is prettier."
"Of course itris. Nothing is prettier
than a woman's face. Kiss me."
She bent down and I kissed her. But
I was gettiug alarmed.
"Miss," I said, "this is certainly a
eompromising position, and were your
father to step in "
"Don't bo afraid; I have no father."
"Who was the man who came in here
half an hour ago ?"
"This is he," tapping mo ou the
shoulder with oue hand, playfully slap
ping my cheek with the other.
I thought her crazy.
"Well, by all the turtles in the river,
I swear "
She turned pale, trembled all over,
and would have fallen had I not risen
and caught her. It was an awkward
fix—on top of a mountain, in a hut,
holding a pretty girl in my arms, and
expecting every moment to be con
fronted by her father, who, I knew,
had a stout stick if 110 more dangerous
weapon. She looked UP at me. faiutlv
smiled, clasped her hands behind my
head, and said:
"You do not love!"
This was a mistake, for 110 man in
such attitude could have helped loving
her. But I felt uncomfortable.
"You do not love me," she repeated.
"I have been waiting here, lovaide and
faithful, for your coming, when I could
I give my life to you. But uow, when
we are on tho verge of complete hap
piness, you break the spell by speaking
that hated word, TURTLE!"
Her face vanished as she spoke. In
its stead stood the head of a black tur
tle, its slimy flippers feeliug over my
lace in disgusting caress. 1 catignt it

"Great God, a turtle!"
"Wake up, Jack! wake up!" said my
companion, giving me a rough shake.
"You've been gasping there, with the
sun shining in your face, for twenty
minutes, talking with a girl in words
quite shocking. Yet there is onlv a
step from the sublime to the ridiculous,
for your last words were, 'a turtle!' "
"Why didn't you wake me?"
"I wished to study the psychological
effects of deviled turkey, three pints
of brown stout, and Amelie Rives."
"Confound the book," said I, throw
ing it into the bayou. It fluttered in
the breeze like a partridge and fell
open-faced upon the water; then il

eluded they would
change their tactics
and move to a better "stamping
ground." So they proceeded up the
Jefferson River, and for a fortnight
mot with most excellent success, all
kinds of game peculiar to that regioE
falling before the unerring aim of tlieii
rifles. Elk and deer were plenty, and
the hunters did not need to go far from
the camp to find them. One day, while !
the party were out in the brush and i
separated from each other at consider
able distances, they surprised, quite o
large herd of elk, and the animals ran
at a tremendous rate of speed do WE
grade toward a valley, aiming to cross
over t<i the mountains opposite. The
firing of the hunters' guns at the ani
mals immediately became so rapid and
sharp, and the hallooing and shouting
so loud, that they were so badly fright
ened as to take no notice of any enemj ,
in front, and bounded over rocks,
brush, aud small trees with startling
rapidity in their wild efforts to escape !
Johnson, who was considerably in
advance of the remainder of the party,
caught a glimpse of the elk approach
ing, and ran up hill to secrete liimsell
behind the rocks and bushes, and thus !
not only head the animals off but get
a good shot as well. He gained o
choice position, aud waited long
enough, as he supposed, for the elk to
approach him, but as they did not conic
lie concluded they had gone in anothei !
direction. So, with gun in hand, lie
pushed ahead, anxiously expecting to
get a capital shot. Just as he was
emerging from some crags and dwarf
ish evergreens the whole band of elk,
not knowing his presence, and without
warning, swept down and all around
him, and he found himself right in the
midst of tho herd. Indeed, so suddenly
and unexpectedly had they dashed
around him that to use his gun was
quite impossible, and it was knocked
from liis hands, beyond his reach. In
fact, he bccamo wedged between two
elk and was lifted bodily, and tossed
or thrown in such a manner that he fell
headlong over a declivity and dropped
plump upon the back of a big buck,
lighting astraddle. Quickly grasping
the elk by the horns, he held 011 with
all his strength, while the animal
pluuged.and reared and snorted in the
most violent manner, closely imitating
the bucking of a Cayute pony.
Tho other elk were considerably af
fected with curiosity at the strange
tfntics, stopped a moment and eyed the
suspicious movements of their comrade,
and when they discovered one of their
well-known enemies astraddle of their
leaders hack they almost jumped out
of their skins to get away. Theu it was
that Jim's wild steed took still greater
alarm, and made a terrific dash for a
clump of thick pine bushes to free him
of his unnatural appendage, and as
Jim didn't care to hold on any longer,
but preferred to excuse himself, he let
go all holds and went tlying through
space and into tho thicket at almost
bullet speed. When his companions
came up thov found him quite sense
less and covered with bruises, but in
due time lie recovered. He has, how
ever, made a solemn vow that ho will
never again undertake to "hack" a wild
mountain elk, and is under the impres
sion that if he had been fastened to a
cannon-ball he could not have been
hurled through the air at a mnch faster
rate of speed. For a long time after

have learned by experience that the only
coat they can sell to a cowboy or hunter is the
Pommel Slicker with the "Fish Brand" Trade
Mark on it. They arc the best waterproof saddle
coats ever made. They keep the saddle, the
horse's back, and the rider thoroughly dry and
warm. No saddle sores from the galling of a wet
saddle. When used as a walking coat, the ex
tension front buttons back, and the Slicker is
changed at once to an ordinary coat. Just try
one, thev cost but little and will prevent colds,
fevers, rheumatism, and other results to exposure
to the weather. Beware of worthless imuations,
every garment stamped with " Fish Brand " Trade
Mark. Don't accept any inferior coat when you
can have the "Fish Brand Slicker" delivered
without extra cost. Particulars and illustrat-1 cat

A Railroad to Hudson Bay.
I A party of American and Canadian
capitalists is asking the Dominion Par
lirnent for a charter for a railroad to
Hudson Bay. "Competent authorities"
declare that such a la lr ad will never
pay, but that is what tliey said when
the Union Pacific was ]>rojected across
the continent, and now there are lour
railroads running from the Atlantic to
the Pacific. To St. Louis belongs the
credit of having originated the scheme
'of a railroad to Hudson Bay. It was
; part of Hinton Rowan He i port's proposed
Three American railroads from Hudson
Bay, on the north, to Patagonia on the
, south ; and while the grand Folieme of
that wholly disinterested gentleman
will never be carried out on the lines
I laid down by him, the result arrived at
is being gradually sic omplished, and
the elo?e of the century will find a rail
road system operation traversing the
continent from North to South.—[St.
