my noise,
frightened at this ungual scene, had fled
to the top of the ridge, where he stood,
looking down upon the combat, Irombling
and quivt ring in every limb.

me far in advance of the hound, whose bay
I c 'utd not now hear. The struggle of

11 near a deep ditch, washed by the
eavv fall rains, and into this I endeav
red to force my axlverssry, but my
streugth was unequal to the effort. When
we approached the verv brink he leaped
over the dr un, and I relinquished my

him, But be returned to the attack, and

that this could not last long. Every mns
