HAVDN'O "beaten" their way, penni
less, almost J.0CO miles. Miss
Louise Gauss and Miss Grace
Fosland, of Chicago, have reached
Omaha agnln. on their return trip. and.
while the Ufa of adventure has had Its
charms, the young women are overjoyed at
being so near the end of their long Journey.
It was a little wager of six pairs of gloves
that actuated this freak trip on the part of
two girls, who were well provided 'for at
homo. On March S3, last, more than three
months ago. they started to reach San
Francisco and to return without a cent.
Slnca then they liav experienced many
odd and some fascinating adventures. Much
of the way they rode on the best trains,
simply inviting conductors to "search us"
for money. Some of the distance they
"bummed" on frelshts. while many miles
were covered by actual pedestrlanlsm.
The cold wave throughout the valleys of
tha Middle West recently has made "hobo
ing" rrallv dangerous, and the girls say
they almost froze ono night, as lhey rods
two hours on th brake beams of a coal
car. between Xorth Platte and Kearney,
At Omaha the tramps found awaiting
them complete new attire, sent on by a
Salt Lake city man. who had learned thelr
story when they passed through there and
admired their pluck. The girls are some
what debiems now as Of the wisdom of their
actions. Said Mln Gauss:
"It's been a good experience, no doubt,
and in Fome practical ways I suppose we
have both benefited. However. It has cost
me dear. My face Is now as leathery as a.
cowboy's and my hair Is bleached to an
unlovely tint. I'll stay home hereafter.
We expected to get passe from here to
Chicago, but failed, so will be compelled
to bum" on In, But that comes easy now.
Have we walked much? Well. I've worn out
ten pairs of shoes on this trip."

Half a dozen boys ware bathing- en a sand
bar In the middle cf the Allegheny River
and saw the animals. They thought dogs
wera swimming the river, and began throw
ing stones at tha wolves. Ths beasts veered
from then course and swam toward the
sand bar. The boys wera soon running,!
naked and scared through ths town of
Asplnwali toward their homes. The wolves
did not follow. Tha story of the boys was
not believed by their elders and the in
cident was forgotten.
A few days later Mrs. Margaret Jeffries.
who occupies a houseboat, which was
moored to the shore at Asplnwali. saw what
ahs thought was a huge gray dog nosing
about the river bank, only a few hundred
feet away. Three dogs also saw the wolf
and made a bee line for the animal.
Tha size of tha newcomer brought the dogs
to a standstill. They circled around, smell
ing In the direction of the wolf, which
glared and snarled savagely. With one ac
cord the dogs Jumped at the wolf. There
was a mix-up. three dogs were seen flying
through the air and the wolf held a mesa of
dog flesh In his teeth. It belonged to a bull
terrier, which held firmly to a big tuft of
hair. The wolf had the dogs whipped and
they turned tall to the houseboat, seeking
shelter In tha cabin.
The wolf gave chase and the four animals
rushed inside the door, landing In the mid
dle of the floor In a. heap. The dogs were
cornored and had to fight. The wolf wantad
revenge and snapped right and left.
Mrs. Jeffries had watched the fight on tha
river bank and ran toward the village. She
soon remembered that she had left her
grandson. 5 years of age. In the houseboat,
and came back to take a hand In the fight
and save tha child. The boy was seated
on the floor of the cabin, playing with a
large cat. The cat did not run when tha
dogs and wolf rushed Into the cabin, but
watched the fight.
Tha dogs fled as fast as they could limp
out and the wolf began nosing- around. Ha

The room was small and the wolf trpset the

Thomas Hill. 12 years old, a nephew of
Mrs. Jeffries, entered the cabin with an
oar and made a Jab at tha wolf. No atten
tion was paid to this by tho animal, as the
cat was ripping Its back Into strips. The
lad caught his cousin and dragged him to
ward tha door, prodding tha wolf with tho
oar. As the boy opened tha door the cat
leaped out on deck.
The wolf Jumped toward the brara boy,
who had to drop tha child and fight the
wolf, etriklng at It with tha oar. tha child
