How Wolves Cajole and Capture Wild Horses
Wherever several of the Urge wolves asso
ciate together for mischief, there is alw ays a
numerous train of smaller ones to follow in
the icsr, and act as auxiliaries in the woik of
destruction. Two large wolves are suiTicieni
to destroy the most powerful horse, and seldom
more than twoever begin the assault, although
ihere may be a score in the gang. It is no
less cujious than amusing to witness Ibis in
genious mode of alisck. If there is no snow,

and.if successful, which they generally are,
the bind one never lets go his hold till the
horse is completely disabled. Instead of
springing forward or kicking to disengage him

aitcTripfing a defence. The wolf before, then

struggles are fruitless the victory is won.

"With foul oomposilors. ihe overseer should
invariably require a second revise, in order to
ascertain if all the eomeiions have been made
which were marked in the first, as no sort of
dependence can be placed on them."
Still another important fsct, which-we wish
to imprest upon the cnielest :
" Ao active and Co&cieftlious overseer,
should go reulmly nuns', about ever quarter
of mi hour, lo the difletent presses, and exant
ine their work, point nut defects, if any, and
glance again over the he ids, sidesnd bottoms
of Ihe pages, to sre if anytjing has been drawn

from bad justification of 'Jie lines, and care
less and improper locking up of the form."

far away, in the distance behind him, through
the clear, cold, frosty air, he bard a noise
which he loo well knew the meaning of.
He then put down ihe window,-and spoke
lo the servant: "The wolves are after us,
make haste; tell the man to drive fas'er, and
get your pistols ready." The postillion drove
faster. Bui the same mournful sound which
the child heard approached nearer. It was
quite clear that a pack of wolves ha6scented

anxious tears 01 hia wile snd child.
Al last the baying of the rack was distinct

two more fell and were d-voured. But the

The nobleman then ordered Ihe postillion to
