Bob Hook was riding south onej
day last week on the plains of!
Wild Cat, several miles from any
dwelling, singing "Home Sweet
Home" to himself, when he sud
denly realized that he was being
stalked by a cougar. Bob ijuickly
dismounted, extracted a shoe
string from his luce boot and tied
his fiery broncho to a Canadian
thistle. He then took out bis pock
et knife, opened the little blade
and dug a trench to hide liimself
in. He lay down behind his breast
works, rifle in hand, and awaited
the oncoming of the ferocious aui
mal. "Wait till you can see the
whites of his eyes," said Bob to
himself, "then lire." On, on and
more on, came the blood thirsty
beast. There were no whites of
his eyes 1o be seen. They were
greeu throughout. Bob waited
and waited until finally the
naughty eat got so close that he
tried to bite the end of the gun
barrel off and Bob in trying to
pull the gun from bis mouth acci-
dently pulled the trigger. Then it
I was that the cougar bit the dust.
The varment weighed 300 pounds,
dressed. Bob will have an over-'
coat and two horse blankevs made
from the hide. Tin; meat will be
! sold at auction to defray tte am
munition expenses of the killing.
