Ottawa river, in sean-U of trout. After
trying one lake, nt which they were unsue

hotel, to the headwaters of a chain of
smaller lakes in the vieinitv. In a few-

A half minute afterward the bark wan

a loud ringing whine which told that the
signal bark had been heard. The Knglish
man dropped his tish and asked hurriedly,
"What is that.:'' He was tedd that it
meant wolves and business, and that he
must throw away his fish if he wished to

Canadian had only a littie bird shot with
him, but he fired. The report made au
awful noise that, resounded through the
forest. The animals scattered in all direc

ouly a moment's respite. Again they took
tip the purstiit, howling and yelpingwhile
their intended victims made slow progress
over rocks, logs and obstructions of all
kinds iu an intense darkness.
When they had reached within a foot of
the lake the foremost wolf, a big black
beast with snapping teeth, spraug upon
them. The animal jumped high and tore
away a part of the Canadian's coat collar.
I fe.t urned as ijtiickly as he could, and as
the beast dropped to the ground he struck
it with the barrel of his gun. The blow
drove him off a few feet and t hen he leveled
the remaining barrel and fired. The wolf
fell over howling and the fisherman took
up their rush lor the shore. The other
wolves paused for a moment, with their
prostrate companion and then dashed after
them. Before they could be overtaken,
the men had reached the shore and the raft.
As they were pushing themselves from
