tho animal to a rocky ledgo along the
Brulo river, now noted as a trout

completely as though tho animal had
taken wings and flown Into tho air.
"Can't you set a trap and catch tho

of his father, after tho latter had put
tho rlflo In Its proper placo and was
describing to his wlfo tho great damage
tho unknown creature was doing In tho
neighborhood. According to Hlakoly
tho animal was endowod with what
seemed to bo almost human cunning
and kept out of sight ot tho hunters In
a manner that was at onco strango and
"A trap's no use," replied Blakoly,
moodily. "Tho bruto knows too much

region who was not a heavy loser from
the depredations of tho animal, which

Thoro was n standing roward of ?50

Ono Sunday afternoon whllo Johnnlo
was alono in the house, his father and
mother having gono to tho village to at
tend a meotlng in tho church, he heard
a commotion among tho cattle, which
wero inclosed In a small houso near
tho houso. On looking from tho door
tho boy saw an animal about tho slzo
of a largo dog, only longer nnd moro

Tho mother was too frightened t

and thought of tho danger in which hei
boy had been placed. Tho father, of toi
making a critical examination ot the
animal and tho collar around Its neck,
at onco sot out for tho homo ot his near-.
On his roturn ho announced that the
mystery of tho panther would probably
bo cleared up on tho morrow, as a (
party Intended to mako a search foi
tlu lair of tho animal and find If It won
to bo found. Little Johnnlo pleaded to
bo allowed to accompany tho party, bul
could not gain consent, as his mothci
entered a firm and emphatic protest. I
In tho oarly morning hounds wcra
6ecurcd and a small party of tho sot-.
tiers took up tho trail of tho panther. ,
It led to tho ledgo of rocks on the Brul
river, whero tho animal had successful
ly hidden so many times when pur
sued by tho hunters. This tlmo the
hounds kept tho scent and It was found
that tho homo of tho crcaturo had been
In a cave almost hidden from sight,
which could only bo reached by leaping
over a deep cut In tho rocks.
As tho party entered tho den, which
ran back Into tho rocks for somo dis
tance, tho smell ot smoko greeted tholi
nostrils. Almost too much astonished
to speak, tho men slowly advanced and
at last camo to tho flro. Near It was
coated a half-breed Indian, fondling two
small panther cubs, ovldently tho young
of tho femalo which had been klllod th
day heforo by Johnnlo Blakoly.
Tho Indian Jumped to his foot as the
mon, with their rifles at their shoulders,
approached, and mado a dash for th
opening ot tho cave. Ho never reached
It, for a rlflo was discharged, probably
accidentally, In tho excitement of tho
moment, and tho half-breed fell on his
faco, blood pouring from a terrlbla
wound In his chest.
Everything posslblo was done for th
sufferer, but It was seen that ho waa
mortally wounded. As ho was placed
tenderly near tho flro on a pile of fur
ho gasped painfully onco or twlco and
then spoko. Ho had como Into tho
neighborhood tho previous fall, ho said,
bringing with him tho femalo panther,
which ho had captured and tamed In
In this cavo he had lived alone, with
only his savage pet for a companion.
Hero tho cubs had been born and ha
was endeavoring to train them as ho
had trained their mother to kill and
bring to him whatever camo In hei
path. Human bones wero found In tha
cave, hut when tho half-breed's body
was taken to tho settlement, along with
tho cubs, no mention of theso bones waa
mado by the men, who decided that no
good could come from It.
Tho body was given a decent burial;
the cubs wero klllod atter being on ex
hibition for a few days, and tho reward
of ?50 was paid to Johnnlo Blakely,
who Is now a business man In a Wis
consin city nnd who hlgly prizes an
old-fashioned muzzle-loading rlflo and
a tattered panther-skin rug, which oc
cupy positions ot honor In his homo.
Twns ho who related to mo tho story

concerning tho Identity of tho half
breed, although Inquiries wero made,
and It Is moro thnn probablo that he
had been moro or less crazy, had raised
tho old panther from a cub and had
wandered from Michigan over into Wis
consin, as ho said.

I HL PARDON OF PONTO

tlmo I repose. ho
most blind confi
dence in him. Wo
loved each other
dearly. Ho wo a
setter, white, with
brown cars nnd tall.
HU name was Pon-
Ponto was enam
ored of a certain
wooden ball about tho slzo of a bil
liard ball. In a moment of weakness
I had purchased this ono day and
brought It home. Ponto immediately
seized It, rolled It toward me, and said:
"Throw that over thcro in tho rose
bushes. I will find it. You seo if 1
don't." So Bald, so done. Tho ball was
thrown and Ponto found It. But ho bo
camo rather Irksome with his desire to
rotrlevo tho ball, becauso his favorite
remark to mo became: "Play ball." Ho
had a fashion of coming Into my study
with a brisk air, wagging his tall, with
tho ball held In his mouth. Then, plac
ing his forepaws upon tho table, ho
would put the precious ball In tho mld
dlo of tho papers, letters and books, and
say: "Thcro is my ball. Now toss It
out of tho window, and I will go and
get it. That will bo very much more
amusing than wasting your tlmo on
nil theso stupid papers and books." I
would frequently feign to hurl the ball
from tho window, and like a flash Porto
would disappear. A few minutes wonW
pass beforo Ponto would reappear with
his forepaws at tho window and ro
mark: "Say you, you man with tho
papers, I don't find anything here. The
ball Isn't In tho garden. You must have
kept It." Then ho would como in at
tho door,, go sniffing around under tho
furniture and In the partly opened desk
drawers, and then, with tho air ot a
man who smites his forehead and dis
covers something, ho would look In
quiringly at you and say: "I will wagor
that It 1b on tho table." He was right.
With his intelligent oyo ho had fol
lowed your glance. If you attempted
thfn to conceal the ball there waa an
end to work. Ho burst Into extrava
gant gayoty, jumped after tho ball, fol
lowed your least movements, and would
not quit you, laughing energetically
with his tail.
Ponto mado mo sometimes think that
ho was ono of thoso men turned Into
dogs of whom wo read in the fairy stor
ies. His eyo was deep, tender and hu
man, and at times it seemed to say:
"What would you? I am only a four
footed beast, but havo a human heart
a better ono than that of many mon.
I am a beast, and I havo suffered much.
I suffer still becauso I cannot express
myself In speech and tell you, In thoso
things that you call words, my fidelity
and my devotion. Yes, 1 am yours, and
I lovo you like a dog. Whatever belongs
to you Is secure. Just lot anybody touch
it, and you will see."
But Ponto and I foil out ono day. It
was a very untortunaie auair. uniy
those peoplo who, like myself, believe
blindly in dogs will understand me.
That Is what happened. Tho cook had
killed two chickens, and had gone Into
( tho adjoining pantry tc get a basket to
put tho feathers in as cho plucked them
When sho returned to tho kitchen. she
uttered a shriek ono of tho two chlck
ons was gone. Yet she had been absent
but a few minutes.
"Ah," said tho cook reflectively,
"evidently somo beggar has passed by
hero and has taken ono of the chickens
through tho window." Sho looked out
of tho door In order to And tho sup-

Why, ho would watch over a leg o.' mut
ton all day without touching It, oven
when ho was perUlilng with hunger.
Besides, ho is thoro In tho kltchon, sit
ting on his haunches, with his eyes
partly closed and occasionally yawning.
Ho is not thinking of chickens."
The cook was so profoundly puzzled
that sho summoned her master and I
camo. Tho melancholy affair was laid
boforo me. I looked at Ponto. Ponto
was sitting there, with n studied air of
indifference, apparently half asloon, I

"Did you call me, master? I was only
asleep. I wns dreaming I was dream
ing of my ball."
Of hie ball, oh? I becamo at onco
suspicious. This was evidently a pro
text. But I said:
"I think, Katherine, that you are
right, Tho dog could not havo otolon
tho chicken. If he had stolon It ho
would be engaged now in plucking It
somowhero in tho garden."
"But look at him, Blr Just look at
him. He has not tho air of a Christian

I turned nnd gazed nt him. "Look
at mo, Ponto."
Ponto lookod up, but his head
dropped, and ho grumbled: "Do you
think that I would ba hanging around
hero if I had stolen a chicken? Why
I'd bo eating it."
But this remark did not divert my
suspicions. On tho contrary, It con
firmed them. "Katherlno," said 1
solemnly to tho cook, "It is Ponto.
Alas, it is Ponto."
What I had scon in Ponto's eyes was
terrible. I swear to you, reader, that
I am most serious. I had distinctly
seen thero an almost human He.
It Is rather difficult to explain my
moaning. Ponto wished to assume an
appearance of sincerity In his glanco,
and ho did not succeed, because that
is impossible, even to a man. It is
said by profound philosophers that In
men tho power of lying Is confined to
speech; that tho power of throwing
falsehood Into glance Is possessed only
Ponto exhausted himself in vain ef
forts to lio with his eyes. But this
unsuccessful falsehood wa3 even moro
Incriminating that an avowal.
I looked fixedly at Ponto. "Horo,
Ponto," said I, "tako this." and I of
fered him tho second chicken, which
Katherlno had Just finished plucking.
Ponto looked at mo reflectively.
"Hum," ho said, "you ovldently bus
poet me. Wby do you glvo mo a
chicken today? You never gavo mo a
wholo chicken before." Ho took tho
chicken in his mouth and immediate
ly deposited it on tho floor at my feet,
and, looking up in my eyes, ho said:
"You must think I am a fool."
Instinctively I said to myself: "Thief!
Scoundrel! You havo betrayed me. You
are a perfidious dog. Your honest ca
nlno existence of loyalty has now como
to nn end, nnd you havo been as falso
as If you were only a man," But pat
ting him on the back, I added aloud:
"Good Ponto, honest Ponto, nice Ponto."
Tho dissimulation was rather too
deep for Ponto. Urged on by tho sa
vory smell of tho chicken, ho took it
between his Jaws and started to go.
But beforo ho reached tho door he turn
od several times and looked at me care
fully In order to seo If ho could fathom
my thoughts. As soon as ho had left
tho kitchen I closed tho door and be
gan spying upon him through tho blinds
of tho window. Ho went a few paces
as If intending to dovour his prey, and
then stopped, placed tno chicken on
tho ground and thought deeply for a
long tlmo. Sovcral times ho looked at
tho kitchen door with his false and
treacherous eyes. Then, giving up all
attempts to seek an explanation satis
factory to his mind, ho contented him
self with tho fact that ho nad tho chick
en, picked it up and departed. As ho
disappeared in tho distance I could see
that his somctlmo timid tall, which had
hesitated throughout our entire conver
sation, had again becamo bold and firm.
Ponto's tall said:, "Bah! I havo both
chickens. Nobody saw me tako tho first.
I stealthily followed him from afar,
and I surprised hlm'In tho act of hastily
scratching a hole in tho ground with
his powerful forepaws. Tho chicken
that I had given him was lying on tho
ground and In tho hole he was digging
lay tho other chicken. I was heart
broken. My friend Ponto retained tho
Instincts of his rcmolo ancestors, tho
foxes nnd tho wolves, and burled bis
provisions. But, alas! being a domesti
cated animal, and having becomo tho
companion of mankind, ho bad learned
Under tho eyes of the treacherous and
now shame-faced Ponto I mado up a
llttlo packago of tho longer feathers
of the two chickens, nnd I deposited this
llttlo feather duster on my working
table. Whenever thereafter I was en
gaged at work and Ponto camo bring
ing his ball and said, with a light and
easy air, "Como, como! Lay asldo that
rubbish and let us play ball," I In
variably lifted tho llttlo feather duster.
Then Ponto would drop his treacher
ous head. His tall would sink between
his legs and adhere to his quivering
body, whllo tho ball would fall from
his nerveless Jaws. As he lookod at
mo ho would say, "Is It possible that
you nro so ruthless, so unforgiving? Do
you never pardon?"
Weeks passed, and I had not yet par
doned Ponto. But ho was indefatig
able in his attempts to win mo over.
So one morning when ho camo to me
again, and whon I seized tho poor
llttlo feather duster and poor Ponto was
about to withdraw, I said to him:
"Look, Ponto," quoth I. "Look upon
this for tho last time. Thus perishes
tho only token ot your fault," and I
hurled tbo feather duster Into tho fire.
Ponto carefully watched tho feather
duster burn. Thon, without any hys
teric manifestations of Joy, without
leaps or skips, but nobty, simply, with
dignity, ho camo and proffered his paw.
Tho crime was forgotten. We wero
Ponto was glad that ho had been for
given, but ho was not nearly bo glad
as I that I had forgiven him.
