A DUEL IN A JUNGLE,
A Big Spotted Tiger and a Boa Constrictor Fight to the Death. Furious Beyond Control Both Wild Animals Eagerly Spring to Combat. The Tiger's Life Crushed Out and the Boa Mangled so Frightfully That Death Ensued. This is a story of a duel to the death be tween two wild creatures in the remote for eats of South America. The battle was watched from beginning to end by Manuel, the tiger hunter, and in its closing state by Manuel's son, Pablo. At this time Manuel was living in the far mountain fastnesses one of the tributaries of the Orinoco with his wife and 14 year-old son. From such vague and uncertain ideas of direction and distance as I could get from Manuel, I in ferred that he was hunting on the head waters of the Rio Meta, in the republic of Colombia. The hunter's camp was in the valley where two streams of water came together, says a writer in the New Pork recorder. Wild an imals coming up the main valley or coming down the two tributary valleys would nat urally pass within a short distance of the camp, especially as the camp itself was carefully concealed in a blind gorge a little distance back among the rocks. Eventually the presence of the camp would be made known5to all the animals passing up and down the valleys, but by the time that the timid beasts had been frightened away the camp would be moved to some new location. The tigers were not at all fright ened by the camp, but they would not stay in a locality after their natural prey, the timid animals, had disappeared. So it was that Manuel was forced to move his camp from place to place several times in the course of a half year. The family very rarely remained away from San Jose de Cucuta more than six months at a time, and even then Manuel sometimes made an extra trip or two for the purpose of selling skins in the market and buying provisions and clothing. Man uel himself did all the hunting, as Pablo was not yet old enough to face the spotted king of the forest with the short spear. Pablo hung about camp as a sort of pro teeter to his mother, although the self-re liant Indian woman needed very little pro teotion other than her own fearless spirit. It might be said that the boy was in course of training for future days of tiger hunt ing. He crept around after small game from morning until night, practicing con tinually with the bow and arrow and short spear. He now and then shot birds with the long blowgun, although that strange weapon was thought to be beneath the no tice of a tiger hunter. Occasionally a bird thus slain was taken to market to be sold for its brilliant plumage. The duel was between a spotted tiger and a boa constrictor. Ordinarily these crea tures give little heed to each other, but in this case the circumstances were a trifle out of the ordinary. The great serpent had been a pet of the boy Pablo up to the day of the battle, but certain occurrences had made him so ugly that he would have fought a whole forest full of tigers one after the other, if circumstances had given him a chance. Mannuel was to blame for all this, as he frankly acknowledged. His share of the blame began when he found the boa asleep many miles down the same valley two years before. In a moment of more than ordinary paternal indulgence he had captured the snake and brought it home on the back of a burro as a plaything for his son. Pablo was delighted with his plaything and would not give it up. For two years thereafter that boa constrictor was the greatest individual nuisance that the fam ily of Manuel had known for many genera Itons. Pablo kept him well fed with all the delicacies of the forest and he showed no inclination to escape. It was late in the afternoon of a hot day that Manuel walked softly down the path that led to his camp. It was his habit to walk softly at all times, but upon this occa sion he was creeping along with unusual stealthiness, for he had a pretty clear idea that a tiger was walking along the path a short distance in front of him. At the proper time he would attract the tiger's at tention and offer him battle. Within a few hundred yardsof camp the hunter be came aware, from some subtle animal in stinct, that the tiger had stopped in the path. The hunter paused and listened. There was a rustling in the leaves and a stirring in the undergrowth that he did not quite understand. Undoubtedly the tiger had found something that attracted his atten tion. The rustling ceased for a moment, but began again a trifle more vigorously. Then came a low, muffled growl, and a thrashing among the leaves, as though the tiger were showing his teeth and swinging his tail from side to side. The hunter crept forward like a shadow. At a curve in the gath he stopped short. A strange thing was going on in the narrow path a few rods before him, A tiger was pacing back and forth, with his tail waving and his hair bristling in sudden anger. In front of him lay Pablo's boa constrictor, coiled ready for a spring. 'I he big snake's eyes shone like diamonds in tho sun, and his tongue darted in and out like forked lightning. His great coils were all a quiver with rage and fury. What had stirred up these two wild crea tures to a pitch of anger Manuel was una ble to say. The snake had probably been in the path about to seiza some small nni mal when the tiger appeared and broke the spell. The tiger wanted the right of way, or at least a chance to pass to one slde, but the snake had only tightened its coils and stood its ground with unmistakable sieun ofan aroused fighting disposition. This annoyed the king of the forest to such an extent that he showed his teeth, growled and thrashed his tail. It was at this in stant that the hunter came along the path and stopped. Neither the snake nor the tiger saw him and he taepr'ed quickly be hind a cactus bush to await his opiportunity of heing in at the death. It very soon became apparent that there was to be a fl-htl. loth creatures grew more angry each moment, and, watching it all with Intense interest, the hunter smiled as one might smile who noted the condition of a favorite gladiator. His half-savage blood thrilled at the thought of so splendid a combat. In his mental eurvey of tLe sit nation there was the quick satiofartion that it was all gain to him. No mnrtter which way the battle went he would have the skin of the tiger when all was over, and the chances were that the snake would never again trouble the little household in tae blind gorge. Pablo would have his day of grief, but that would pass away, and things would then be as they wern in the begin ning before this snake came front far down the hot valley. While Manuel thought these thoughts the two wild things in the path moved back and forth, as though sparring for an opening. The snake was alert with sullen ugliness, his clistening head darting here and there like flashmR of light. The tiger was not so vindictively ugly, but his spotted hide quivered with wave upon wave of rising anger. It was plain that, althoug~h the tiger was not afraid, he was Imore than usually cautious. lie was not rceCusRomed to fightt with snakes, and he probably knew well from observa tion the nature of his enermy. The snake also seemed to realize very clearly that he had provoked a battle with a dangerous beast. At length the tiger, unable to restrain his rage, leaped at the serpent's swaying head like a dazzle of light, but the snake's head was not there. The tiger landed in the path on the other side of the suake, but al most before he had touched the ground a tenincoil had been thrown over him. e gave a thrillin cry and leaped fully a dozen feet into the air. He landed safe and unharmed on his own side of the path. a little shaken up perhaps, but still full of good fighting blood. The snake was back m an instant, coiled ready for defense. The tiger orouched in the path, as if about to spring. The snake quivered with nervous preparation. The hunter caught his breath in quick anticipation. This was the critical moment. Furious beyond all control, the two wild creatures sprang upon each other in the same instant. For a scant half of a second there was polsed in the air a yellow blur wrapped about with great glistening cpils like the trunk of a small tree, and then snake and tiger rolled in the dust together. It was a grand battle, and right nobly was it fought. The serpent's coils were tight ening about the tiger with strained, con vulsive movements of the shining skin, but the tiger's long teeth and sharp claws were buried deep in the serpent's neck and body. In that terrible embrace there could be no result other than death. The hunter watched like one fascinated by some strange and awful sight. Never in his life had he seen such a sight, perhaps never would he see it again. Tighter drew the great coils; the tiger's bones were cracking one by one. Deeper sank the long teeth; the serpent's life blood was forming in little pools in the dust. The hunter was almost gasping with emotion, so strange, so terrible, was the tragic duel. Convulsively the fighters rolled in the path, but weaker, weaker, grew their strug gles. The end was coming. Perhaps fore seeing it. the tiger made one frantic, des perate effort to free himself from the deadly embrace, but the blood-streaked coils only tightened the more. Then the forest king again sank his teeth and claws into the ser pent's neck and body. He would die as he had lived, a thmg of unshakable courage. The serpent, in a spasm of pain and dying rage, tried once for all to crush his enemy into a shapeless mass, but his flesh and mus cles had been sadly torn away. and his neck was breaking under the tiger's teeth. The hunter caught his breath hard and stepped from the shelter of the cactus bush. The end was at hand. Death was glazing the eyes of the tiger, the serpent's head fell helplessly to one side. There was a feeble struggle in the shoulders of the tiger, a galvanic shudder in the coils of the serpent, and then all was still. It was ever. The hunter looked up from the two dead things in the path to meet the gaze of his son, whose eyes were wide with horror, grief and reproach. "You saw it all?" said the son, as the father mutely nodded. "You did not save the serpent?" "It was all as lightning," explained the father, unable to bear the searching re proof of his son's eyes. The son drew a long, deep breath, while his glance searched his father's face. Then he turned without a word and strode away. A ways avoid harsh purgative pills.
