ACROSS THE RAVINE.
A Forced Fight Between an Indian and
I was prospecting to the sooth of Cus
ter's peak, in the Black Hills, and at noon
sat down with my back to a great bowlder
to have a bite to eat. It was on the edge
of a deep, dark ravine which had a width
of 200 feet. The opposite bank of the ravine
was much the highest, rising np from
twenty-five to thirty feet high, and along
i its face was a trail. This perhaps had
been made by deer and goat passing from
; their feeding grounds. Only about fifty
feet of the trail, and that directly in front
of me, was clear of brush and trees. I had
my eyes on this open space when an Indian

within twenty feet of him and rested. I
saw a bloody streak on the animal's shoul- i

growls were deep and menacing. i
The redskin had only a single barreled
rifle, and he made no attempt to reload.
While the lion turned his head the Indian '
laid down his empty rifle and drew his 1
knife. He was a tall, stalwart fellow, and j
he meant to fight for his life. I

I did it to attract his attention, and next j

must have been a bit astonished, but he
did not betray the fact. His eyes blazed
np. he scowled in a malignant way and I
knew that he was cursing his luck in be
ing in such a fix.
"Hist! Hist! Hist!"
It was louder this time, so as to reach
the ears of the lion as he licked at the
blood. He started up with a savage
growl, located me in a flash, and bis eyes
blazed and scintillated and almost burned.
He glared at me for twenty seconds and
then turned to the Indian.

The beast switched his tail in a men
acing way as he stared at rue, while the
Indian now spoke for the first time, saying:
"Before the niht comes I will roast
your heart at my fire and eat it !"
"Ah! Then you think the lion is a cow
ard and dares not attack you! I et us see.
If I can hit hirn with this stoue he will
spring upon you. Iletter throw away your
knife and run for it. Squaws are fleet of
foot, are they not ?"
I held the missile in my hand while talk
ing to him. Both Indian and lieast were
looking straight at me as I threw it. It
struck the lion full in the side, and with a
roar and a rush he was upon the savage.
The trail did not look to me to be over
three feet wide. The Indian was borne
backward by the weight of the attack, but
he was quickly von his knees, and 1 saw his
knife flash as he kept stabbing. lie did
not shout, and the lion uttered no other
noise except a sort of sobbing.
Tbe fight seemed to last ten minutes, but
I doubt if it lasted over three. On fair
ground the Indian might have beaten tbe
beast off or killed it. So, too, on more ad
vantageous ground, the beast might have
finished the Indian in a couple of minutes.
Of a sudden, as tbe two were down on the
path, they rolled over the brink. The In
dian's knife was buried to the hilt in the
lion's body, while the brute had its teeth
fastened in his throat. They vanished,
from sight in an instant, and as I stood
looking over tbe brink of that dark chasm
it seemed a quarter of a minute before a
dull crash came up through the gloom
which had hung there for ages to tell that
they were lying dead down there on the
rocky bottom. M. QUAD.
