Humors and stories of a large
animal recently seen in numerous
places near Worland must now
be given credence, since one or
mote responsible parties run
across the animal nearly every
clay. Many stories and adven
tures are in circulation, some of
thenvhair-raisinj?, and the sum
of it is undoubtedly that throe
regular old time panther?, with
their young, have taken op their
residence in the bottoms of the
Marais des Cygnes river near
Some of the stories tell of the
animal following this one and that
one, out to the side of the road,
now in front and now behind,
"patting," the terrible unearthly
screams as of a woman in dis
tress, and all betray the habits
of the panther. It has been seen
and followed people most often
along the track of the K. C. S.

and many people on foot, all arm
