Andy Morgan bought a controlling i
interest in the Arlington "Morning i
Arrow," and realized a cherished am
bition by settling down to the none
too prosaic life of an editor.
Arlington was a thriving little city
of about 12,000 population. The "Ar
row," under the old editorial manage
ment, had long been a sluggish dis
pirited sheet, with limited patronage
and little voice in civic affairs. The

AT 7W' / T
TIhERE is a romantic flavor
about the word badger that be
longs to no other of the names
of animals found in Britain. I
suppose it is because this is
their only large carnivorous, genuine
ly wild animal; the fox, the only other
wild beast of any size, is in many,
perhaps I ought to sayimost, districts
so carefully preserved that it owes
its existence to man, instead of, like
the badger, existing in spite of man.
Then, too, "the brock" is hardly ever
seen alive and free, but conies and
goes mysteriously in the dead of night,
leaving but few traces behind it un
less somebody notices a large dog
like track in the mud, or where a
wasps' nest has been dug out, for it
revels in the dainty meal of wasp
grubs. Many'a time have I tracked
one from the scene of its night's
,work through muddy gateways and
down damp woodland rides, noting
how the heavy creature had slipped
and slid, and the spots where it had
turned asid6 to scratch and root
among the moss and dead leaves, then
on- to the streamside-the badgers al
ways ford the.little brook I am speak
ing of at the same place-and through
hedges and across fields, once more to
plunge into big w'oodlands, in the heart
of which is the gr eat earth .wherein
many generations have been bred. In
these par ticular holes the badgers are
fairly safe. Trho tunnels are bored in
a layer of sand lying between strata
of clay and rock, and run in every di
rection for hundreds of feet. There
are only two visible entrances, which
are inconspicuous holes, without even
a heap of soil to distinghmish them
from surrounding rabbit burrows; for
being situated at the top of one of
the sides of a very steep and deep val
ley, or 'dingle,- as they are locally
called, the soil all rolls down to the
stream below, wvhere it is washed
away. In fact, the Bole intimations of
badgers are the pathways 'formed by
their always taking the same road in
their nightly wanderings, and which
lead up to the tiro entrances. Some
two or three years ago, a fox, hard
pressed by hounds, took refuge in this
earth, and the master and whip, not
knowing th9 place, sent for spades
and terriers and commenced opera'
tions to get him out.
To cut a long story short, they dug
till late at night, and .finally hounds
wyere taken home; but orders had
been left with men of the district to
finish the job next day. These men
dug steadily for three days; they re
moved many tons of soil, but the
further they got into the cliff the more
tunnels there were. In some holes
they found neat beds of grass and
fern. It had. to be given up, for the
work was Herculean; it would have
required weeks to. reach the extremi
ties of the various holes. A short
time ago I visited the place, and ap
