"1 was just ont of tlio university, and was feeling pretty (food over hav.ngfey brand nov diploma anil scvernl dis tinctions; in fact, I had a lino opinion of myself, and didn't believe anyone in the country could beat me doing anything In a literary way. You've seen such young follows. 1 reckon: the country's full of 'cm?smart Alecks that think the world Is sitting up and burning the midnight oil, watching their career. Well, 1 w*as just that kind "And just about that time unine a letter from a kittle Itock gentleman whom I had mctdnrlng our commence ment, asking roe lo go down and join bis family in ail extensive camp hunt ont In Indian territory. 1 had nover been on a camp hunt in my life, and 1 felt convinced in my Inmost soul that it would be ii dreadful bore: but my Little itock friend had a pretty daugh ter. I had met her, also, during that commencement. Of course, under those circumstances, I accepted the In vitation. '*1 went down to Littlo Itock, where I found my friend?you would all know him if 1 told his name, so I'll call him Capt- Mark?where l fount! him al ready, and the others?and Miss Dor otliy?were ready, also. "Now, you liave already inferred that it wus on Dorothy's account 1 went You will be surprised to learn, then, that this ungrateful yonng lady did not cease to chaff me most unmercifully from the tipie wo started about my dignity, my formal ways, m.v stiff lan guage and my attire, to which she took liurtlciilur exceptions. She kept me in constant terror ot her bright eyes and sharp tongue, and. to tell you the truth, it was a toss-up with mo whether to go on and finish the expedition or to take it afoot back to the railroad. Tho only thing that kept me from thu latter course was that 1 would have been compelled tosllpofT In the night and run away. 1 never would havo dared to walk off with Dorothy looking at me. "One day we were camped in a lovely glade near the bank of a little river in which there was an abundance of fish, and tho glade was backed by mountain blopes and gorges which gave promise 57^1 'I CAME rACK TO FACE WITH A DEAR CUD." of plenty of game, so we had decided to spend several days there. Dorothy and I had started fishing early in the evening, but she had mortally offended me by calling back to me as she went down-the little trail: 'Oh, I am so glad you brought your stovepipe hat, Mr. Madison. It is the very thing to carry bait in!' "Of course I was mad! I sulked all the morning,dotermined to let this pert young lady know that 1 had some re . sentment about me. To add to iny in dignation, she caught all the lisli, while 1 succeeded in capturing nothing but a villainous little turtle. So we went back to camp at noon, I wearing the mobt dignified air and she humming something that sounded dreadfully like 'No One to Love Me.' "After dinner I snatched up my gun and marched scornfully off to the woods, not even deigning to look back and tee what direction Miss Dorothy had tnken. I was fully resolved to show her that she had presumed too far. "1 went to the mountains. I was pretty mad, and i needed some rough exercise to work off my' anger. I clambered around trails that m ade me dizzy to look down, and over rocks and around cliffs. It was a wild scramble, and it took all the diguity out of my clothes as well as out of me, but 1 didn't care in the least. "Untii, suddenly, around a little curve in the trail, I came face to face with a bear cub, about three months old probably, and the little creature, instead of running away, reared up on jits haunches and growled with such a funny imitation of an old bear that it - was perfectly irresistible. I had never seen a cub before. My resentment fled to the winds. 'I will catch this fellow for Dorothy/ 1 thought, and I dropped ?fe' ?'Oh! tlir.v are ensy enongh t" catch? the miserable, lunoccnt-looking little rascals. Holding them is where the trouble comes In. In three seconds m.y clothe* were In ribbon ? and 1 lood w?? streaming from a dozen scratches on ray body and arm*. 1 tried ray best to drop him then, but he wouldn't be dropped. lie had fastened lijs teeth in one of my sleeves and %vas banging on with a death grip, scratching all the while, and growling that little whin ing growl of his. And while I kicked and beat at the little beast, trying to shake lilm off, suddenly somebody laughed. It was a mean little gur gling laugh. brimful of amusement. 1 looked np, and tliera was Miss Doro thy, perched on a tree trunk a little way up the slope, aud peeping down nt me, her face all lit np with smiles and dimples. " 'Don't stop,' she cried out, gayly. ?It Is really a very pretty show, and so easily dona, tfx*. Why didn't you tell me that you had so much talent as an aniranl tamer?1 "I flung that wretched cub down with a bang. If 1 Indsuld what was in my mind just then 1 would huve made a few remarks, probably, which would haro put un cud to ray ac "pown the sr.orK. qna.'ntance with Miss Dorothy.
