PURSUED BY WOLVES.
A WILD RIDE FOR LIFE. AND A NAR
ROW ESCAPE FROM DEATH.
A Head Pony ami a I.n and Dreary
Night Face, to Fnce with Oenth A
Ilrave I!y Saved by a Happy Idea.
Power of Fire I'pon Wild Beaut.
There are no wild animals trior? to be
dreaded than timber wolves, especially
when pressed by hunger. Then tLoy le
come veritable demons, and woe upon the
living thing whose trail they hapju-n to
They at once beyin a merciless ch:t-e and
continue it untiringly, rivaling in speed
and endurance the most sinewy liorse
Nothing daunts them. Shoot one down
and he is instantly devoured by the rest of
the park, who thereupon rush forward
with unchecked courage and appetites hut
whetted by their unnatural feast Fire
alone can hold them at bay
With these ugly brutes it was m) luck
to have an adventure the second spring
after we settled on Major creek, Gtlo I
was then a lad of 15, smn'.l of i:iy arc but
wiry, and as capable of enduring f itigue
as any man, while no one in I he valley
could excel aie in ridingafter cattle,! brow
ing a lasso or sticking to a bucking bron
Late one afternoon 1 was returning from
a trip up the mountain sida on my i lucky
little pony tfelim. As I drew reiu to let
the pony regain bis breath I noted, with a
start of surprise, that it had grow:) very
"Come, Selim, we must get out of this,'
I said to the pony, with a shake of the
rein; but before he eon id Mkc u step
forward from a pinou shrouded guich to
my left arose a deep, long drawn howl
The moment after another nini ou; clear
and ominous from the opposite side of
Then a third and fourth sounded from a
Cottonwood thicket that nestled in a gulch
at my rear.
"It's the wolves, and they have us al
most surrounded. Go it, Selini!" I cried
as I gave him the rein.
Half wild with fear he rushed off down
the mountain side.
A WILD RIDE FOR LIFE.
That wus a mad ride for life. Now we
dashed under the low hanging boughs of a
stunted cedar, next we leaped a fallen tree
top, scattering dry branches right and left,
and then we jumped a deep gully or went
headlong off a ledge of rock, not seen in
the dim light until too late to avoid t hem.
Somehow we reached the bottom c f the
pass in safety, and flew down the na rrow
trail to the month of the canyon.
"Down grade and a clear traiL (io it.
Selim! We'll beat them yet.'" I cried.
And the little horse lay low upon the
ground, while the echo of his hoof beats
rang a rhythmical echo of triumph upon
the hard packed soil.
But glancing over my shoulder thnugh
the twilight I saw a pack of' flying jshad
ows horribly close at our heels. The bowl
ing had ceased long since, as the w jlvee
were now saving their breath to chase their
"Faster faster, Selim!" I shouted.
And the pony sprang forward with In
creased speed, only to stumble and fall,
seuding me head over heels intoa clunpof
Luckily I was not much hurt, but scram
bled to my feet just in time to see the poor
pony hobble past on three legs, with the
band of wolves right upon him.
"Put his foot in adog hole and broke hia
leg," 1 reflected. "That ends his chances,
The next moment I heard that pi.iful
sound, the scream of a horse in mortal ter
ror, and knew that the savage brutes had
overtaken him at last.
Out of breath and still trembling from
the effects of my fall, I sat down at the
foot of a tree to rest; but now the howls of
the wolves again rang in my ears. 1'aring
finished my faithful pony they were com
ing back for nie.
"If I only had a gun I'd sell my lite as
dearly as might be," I groaned.
A HAPPY THOUGHT
And theu I lethought me that I at last
had a few matches in my pocket.
DrawinK them forth I struck one, and
with trembling fingers held it to a tuft of
Instantly a tiny flame shot up. Thus 1
fed with pine needles, dry cones and little
twigs until I had a bright blaze burn ng
and none too soon, for now the ballled
wolves were circulating around and around
the space illumiued by the firelight, while
some of the bolder ones even entered for a
moment its outer boundary.
At first I fed the fire freely, but as the
night wore ou and the savaxe brutes
showed no signs of leaving I began to
economize on fuel. The ground beneath
the pine tree was littered with the fallen
needles, cones and dry branches of years,
but they burned very fast, and already 1
hail made great inroads npon them.
It must have been about 9 o'clock wiien
a second pack of wolves joined those al
ready guarding me. -The newcomers were
evidently regarded as intruders, for taey
were greeted with angry snarls and finally
both packs indulged in a rough and tumble
As they struggled together now and then
a group was forced within the circle of
firelight, and I shuddered as I sawtLeir
pitiless white fangs and glaring eyes.
But the savage animals soon tired of
rending each other and returned to tr.eir
old occupation of ceaselessly tramp ng
around my fi relit space.
SAVED BV FIRE.
Thus the hours dragged wearily past
until from the position of the stars I knew
that it lacked but a few hours of daybreak,
and now the fire began to burn low. Kvi;ry
cone and twig from liene.itii the tree tad
been heaped on the coals.
"If one of those pinons were just a little
higher I'd make a dash for it," I thought
over and over again as I watched the
flames sink lower and lower while the c ir
cling wolves came closer and closer.
And now there was but a bed of glowing
embers left. The gaunt leader of the band
had crept up nearer and still nearer, and
as the filmy ash began to form upon t he
ruddy coals he crouched to leap upon hi
My head sank upon my hreast as I wailed

sparks and flame shot tweuty feet up ir to

who fled howling iu diMnay. I was saved.
A pitch soaked root had blazed up iu the
nick of time, and now burned merri y
Presently the whole resin covered trunk of
the tree caught fire and became a veritable
pillar of flame, and then I knew that ray
hour of peril was indeed past.
The wolves bung around until morning,
but the first beams of th rising sun scat

We should like to give a
new chimney for every one
that breaks in use.
We sell to the wholesale

It is a little awkward to
guarantee our chimneys at
three removes from you.
We'll give you this hint.
Not one in a hundred breaks

risk in guaranteeing them.
Talk with your dealer about it.
It would be a good advertise
