There surely was a misdeal. Howell

"My girth needs tightening,"

Howell made a leap toward the
)ridle, but the pony plunged and
tacked, half turning about, and

itood there wriggled a snake back
nto the mesquite. Nita was holding
vith one hand to the saddle horn,

The race lay in an opposite dlrec

There was no chance to call for help.

incertain swaying of the slender

vas no chance to check the pony. All
ae could do was to catch her as she
.'ell, while he slipped off his r.vn
aorse. So for a minute he held her
n his arms like a hurt child, and
wondered why she did not faint. In
itead, she smiled up at him with the
jame laughing mischief In her long
lashed brown eyes.
"I'm not hurt a blt, Mr. Howell.

"There's sure to be a nervous
mock," said Howell gravely. "Are
rou sure you can stand alone?"
"Try me," she laughed. He lifted
her up to his own saddle. The pony
had stopped a short distance away,
and was cropping grasB. "Aren't we
lost?" she added.

rough sketch on his easel.

He drew a quick breath; the girl
"If you will come to the model

Jane by the hand to assist her to the
high stand a dull color swept the
girl's face. While he draped a soft
brown velvet over ber shoulders an
undreamed-of sensation kept her eyes
from looking at him.
Villar's eyes never left the perfect
oral of her face; it was framed in
rich masses of red-gold hair and the
delicate flush strayed up until it met
the shadows beneath her soft gray
"You are far too beautiful to be a

to use the word in connection with
Jane's easy flow of speech came
back to her when Villar had returned
to his easel and she told him of the
little children and their urgent need

MAN ALONE FOLLOWS SROOR
ls the Only Hunter That Uses Eye
sight to Guide Him In the
Search for His Prey.
Spooring, properly speaking, meang
following footprints; but the tenn
commonly implies much more than
that, and signifies holding the trail by
means of the many marks an animal
leaves behind on its path.
It ls essentially tracking by sight
when the quarry itself is hidden from
view; and it is this use of the eyes
alone in the pursuit of invisible game
that distinguishes man, the hunter,
from other animals.
There is no reason to think that any
animal, other than man. employs eye
sight to any material extent for this
purpose. Conspicuous/tricks, it is
true, may catch the eye of the stoat
Dr wolf questing for prey, and draw
attention to the fact that a possible
victim has passed by.
But it is hardly to be believed that
either of these animals, high though In
certain particulars his intelligence be,
has a knowledge of the shape and'
structure of the feet such as is neces
sary lur telling the nature of the spe
cies that has left the spoor and of the
direction it has taken.
Theso esser'ials are learnt by the
sense cf smell. Smell will tell the
stoat if the tracks are those of a hare
it would be profitable to pursue or of
a fox it would be unwise to fellow;
and the gradual waxing or waning of
the scent in tLis or that ?irection will
Indicate tho course that has to be
chosen if the quest is to be crowned
To man alone, then, is confined the
power of knowing these things by eye.
Not that the knowledge is instinctive.
It has to be acquired by strenuous ap
plication and long practice; and only
the individual with keen visualizing
power and sound judgment can hope
to make a successful tracker and at
tain proficiency in the science.
