MARK AND THE PANTHER.
Sketch of Old Days in a Wilder ness in the Pearl River Country. Truthfully Related by One Who Had It From His Grand father. Youmg Hardy, Looking for Wild Tur keys, Faces a Ravenous Panther Now He Escaped Alive. [Written for TrE HELENA INDEPENDENT.] HE STORY OF MARK HARDY AND t the panther is true. I tell it as I had it from sny own grandfather when I was a boy. In 1814 any grandfather found himself in lower Mississippi, in the almost uninhab ited wilderness of the Pearl river region, whither he had gone in search of his sister, whose husband had died and left her pen niless among lawless strangers. .He stayed at night at a cabin where a man and his wife and one child were living comforta bly, but roughly, by tending a little farm and hunting and trapping in the surround ing forest. Issao Hardy was a stalwart man of 45, and his wife looked stronger than he; but their only child, a son of 17, was strangely deformed. My grandfather found this boy, Mark Hardy, to be an uncommonly interesting youth, despite his drawn limbs and scarred face, and when his strange story was told he seemed a genuine hero even in that time when heroism on our frontiers was at its best. One day, two years before, Mark then 15 years old. took his rifle and went into the woods to look for a wild turkey. lie had not gone a quarter of a mile from home when he met a huge panther face to face. This was at a place where a little spring stream tan through a deep, narrow savine in which large trees grew here and there with dense undergrowth around their buttressed roots. As Mark stood, when the animal appeared, there was no chance for him to retreat; the thicket of underbrush through which he had just crawled was so dense that it was like a wall, and on either hand rose an almost perpendicular jaw of the ravine. The panther was no more than twenty five or thirty feet distant, and already it was crouching: its eyes glared and its tail writhed like the body of a snake. Mark had never before seen a panther alive and free, and the stories he had heard of pan thers had not fortified him against such a deadly encounter as was apparently in evitable within the next minute. But, having been reared to the use of the rifle. Mark's first impulse was to raise his gun and fire. This was as natural to a frontier boy as for you to fling up your arm to ward off a blow. The panther saw the movement and possibly it knew what it meant from having been shot at on some similar occasion. Quick as lightning, al most, it bounded forward. Mark's aim could not be very steady under such conditions, but his rifle rang out keen and clear. He was soared almost to death, yet the instinct of fight was so strong in him that as the savage animal charged he clubbed his gun and struck out as hard as he could. He hit, the heavy stock breaking under the force of the blow. Doubtless this caused the panther to swerve; at all events, it rushed past Mark instead of leaving upon him, and so great was its momentum that it broke into the bushes beyond to some distance before it could check itself and turn about to renew the attack. The energy, or I might say the ecstasy, of absolute fright now gave Mark the quick nesa end agility of a cat. Ieizing the bough of a tree he swung himself up and climbed like a monkey. Maddened and snarling wickedly, the panther went scrambling up, too. The body of the tree. fortunately, was covered with a growth of loose Lark. and this slipped ander the bena~ fret and noad. its cl\ib ing difficult.

If it had had a way to hold the bough steady it could have drawn Mark to it and killed him.

Every moment he felt he munt let go and rrop--sure dr'r'th; for if the tall ord aot kill him the panther would. Suddanly the great beast collapsed and shivered. At the sanis muoment there was a sharp whip-like orack--r. lhardy had "Hold fast, Marl!" cried the father's voice, "hold with ail -our might!" moment longer,and then fell to the Rround, quite dead. Mr Hardy helped Mark down and oar ried him home. in his arms, where for months, he lay in bed. His face. limbs and body were literally scratched into shreds. When at last the wounds healed the poor little fellow's muscles and tendons wore so drawn that he eould scarcely walk. As he grew to manhood, however, he recovered a good deal and became a noted panther hupter. ]Luarcs 'TaoarMeor. Copyright.,___ A Million ]Friends.
