tograph, taken at thfe end of her
brief and fatal holiday in civili
zation. Many deer thrive in New Eng
land, protected by the-game laws.
And this doe had lived and
thrived in the shadows of kindly
bushes and low-branched trees
since Noroton hunters first sight
ed her, a young, graceful fawn.
She was often seen about the out
skirts of the village and seemed
to enjoy an occasional run with
boys and dogs.
At last, she trotted down the
other day into the village. Dogs
barked and she ran away. Faster
and faster she went, with boys
and dogs close on her trail. Over
fences and hedges she ' leaped.
Flying over a hedge on one side
of a narrow road, she attempted
to leap the seven-foot iron picket
fence on the other.
Up ! the brave heart urged, but
there was no room for the neces
sary headway, and down upon a
pointed spike she came. Through
her heart ran the iron, tearing it
and cutting a deep, killing gash
through the soft flesh to the neck.
She gave 'one shrill cry like the
scream of a woman and died.
Her carcass hung there on the
fence for the day, while villagers
and strangers came and looked1
upon the deer that wanted to see
man's land, and paid the penalty.
The fence was on the Ziegler's estate.
