T V mAMA la thn Hnnt it If I all deer; and many bunt 11 I erB extern il tbetnoblest yond question there are few trophies more prized than tbe huge shovel horns of this strange dweller in the cold northland forests. I shot myi first moose after makin? several fruitless hunting trips with this special game In view. Tbe season I finally succeeded it was only after hav ing hunted two or three weeks in vain, among, tha BUter Root Mountain.' and the ranges lying southeast of them. I began about the first of September We then dropped on hands and knee. by making a trial with my old hunting friend Willis. We speedily found a country where there were moose, but of the animals themselves we never caught a glimpse. The moose which lived In isolated, exposed localities were speedily killed or driven away after the incoming set tlers; and at tbe time that we hunted we found no sign of them until we reached the region of continuous forest. Here, in a fortnight's hunting, we found as much sign as we wished, and plenty of it fresh; but the animals themselves we not only never saw, bu we never so much as heard. Often aft er hours of careful still-hunting or cau tious tracking, we found the footprints deep in the soft earth, showing where our quarry had winded or heard us, and had noiselessly slipped away from the danger. I began to think that this moose-bunt, like all my former ones, was doomed to end in failure. However, a few days later I met a crabbed old trapper named Hank Grif fin, who was going after beaver in the mountains, and who told me that if I would come with him' he would show me moose. I Jumped at the chance, and he proved as good as his word; though for the first two trials my ill luck did net change. At the time that it finally did change we had at last reached a place where the moose were on favorable ground. A high, marshy valley stretched for several miles between two rows of stony mountains, clad with a forest of rather small fir-trees. This valley was covered with reeds, alders, and rank grass, and studded with little willow bordered poods and Island-like clump of spruce and graceful tamaracks. Having surveyed tbe ground and found moose sign tbe preceding after noon, we were up betimes in the cool morning to begin our hunt. Before sunrise we were posted on a rocky spur of the foot-hills, behind a mask of evergreens; ourselves unseen we overlooked all the valley, and we knew we coald see any animal which might be either feeding away fro si cover or on its journey homeward from its feed ing ground to its day-bed. As It grew lighter we scanned tbe valley with Increasing care and eager sess. The sun rose behind us; and al most as soon as It was up we made out some large beast moving among the dwarf willows beside a little lake half a mile in our front. In a few minutes the thing walked out where the bashes were thinner, and we saw that it was a young boll moose browsing on tbe willow tops. He had evidently nearly Qnisr;r:V V bvMkfxst, and he stood - Remedy FREE is In lecetDt of hundreds of letters from- cents or ti.uu, according to iMtur fo tavvar at (Mir tk MarTtM mmmmm wtn mm mm o rmmr kasM cma a mmt wfct w will o wttfcoal ww. Aa,t Ogcot mm tw mm M. f wt- kwatrl taaajass. laly f o Some moments, now and then lazily cropping a mouthful of twig tips. Then he walked off with great strides in a straight line across the marsh, splashing among the wet water-plants, and ploughing through boggy spaces with tbe Indifference begotten of vast strength and legs longer than those of any other animal on this continent. After a while he reached a sprure island, through which he walked to and fro; but evidently could find there in no resting-place quite to his mind, for he soon left and went on to anoth er. Here after a little wandering he chose a point where there was seme thick young growth, which hid him from view when he lay down, though not when be stood. After some turn ing he settled' himself In his bed just as a steer would. He could not have chosen a spot bet ter suited for us. He was nearly at tbe edge of tbe morass, the open space between the spruce clump where he was lying and the rocky foot-hills be ing comparatively dry and not much over a couple of hundred yards broad; while some sixty yards from It. and between it and the hills, was a little hummock, tufted with firs, so as to afford us just the cover we needed. Keeping back from the edge of tbe morass we were able to walk upright through tbe forest, until we got tbe point where he was lying in a line with this little hummock. We then dropped en our hands and knees, and crept over the soft, wet sward, where there was nothing to make a noise. At last wo reached the hummock, and I got Into position for a shot, taking a final look at my faithful 46-00 Win chester to see that all was in order. Peering cautiously through the shield ing evergreens, I at first could not' make out where the moose was lying, until my eye was caught by tbe motion of bis big ears, as he occasionally flap ped them lazily forward. Bven then I could not see his outline; but I knew where he was, and having pushed my rifle forward on the moss. I snapped a dry twig to make him rise. My veins were thrilling and my heart beating with that eager, fierce excitement, known only to the hunter of big game, and forming one of the keenest and strongest of the many pleasures which with him go to make up "the wild joy of living." As the sound of the snapping twig mote his ears the moose rose nimbly to his feet, with a lightness on which one would not have reckoned In a beast so heavy of body. He stood broadside to me for a moment, bis ungainly head slightly turned, while his ears twitched and his nostrils snuffed tbe air. Draw ing a fine bead against his black, hide, behind his shoulder and two thirds of his body's depth below his shaggy withers, I pressed the trigger. He neither flinched nor reeled, but started with his regular ground-covering trot through the spruces; yet I knew he was mine, for tbe light blood sprang from both of his nostrils, and be fell dying on his side before he had gone thirty rods. Later in tbe fall I was again hunting among the lofty ranges which continue towards the southeast the chain of the Bitter Root, between Idaho and Mon tana. There were but two of us, and we were travelling very light, each hav- ! lng but one pack-pony and the saddle animal he bes trade. We were high among tbe mountains, and followed no regular trail. Hence our course was often one of extreme difficulty. Occa sionally, we took our animals through, the forest near timber line, where the slopes were not too steep; again we threaded our way through a line of glades, or skirted the foot-hills, in an open, park country: and now and then we had to cross stretches of tangled mountain forest, making but a few miles a day, at the cost of incredible toil, and accomplishing even this solely by virtue of the wonderful docility and sure-footedness of tbe ponies, and of uiy companion's skill with the axe and thorough knowledge of woodcraft. Late one cold afternoon we came out ta a high alpine valley in which there was no sign of any man's having ever been before us. Down its middle ran a clear brook. On each side was a belt of thick spruce forest, coveting the lower flanks of the mountains. The trees came' down in points and Isolated clumps to the brook, tbe banks of which were thus bordered with open glades, rendering the travelling easy and rapid. Boon after starting up this valley we entered a beaver meadow of consid erable size. It was covered with lush, rank grass, and tbe stream wound through It rather sluggishly in long curves, which were fringed by a thick growth of dwarfed willows. In one or two places it broadened Into small ponds, bearing a few lily-pads. This meadow had been all tramped up by moose. Trails led . hither and thither through the grass, tbe willow twigs were cropped off. and tbe muddy banks of the little black ponds were Indented by hoof-marks. Evidently most of : the mies had been plucked. The footprints were unmistakable; s moose's foot is longer sad slimmer than a caribou's. - while on the other band it is much larger than an elk's, and a longer oval in shape. Most of the sign was old. this high alpine meadow, surrounded by snow mountains, having, clearly been a fa vorite resort for moose In the summer; but some enormous, fresh tracks told that one or more old bulls were still frequenting the place. The light was already fading, and. of course, we did not wish to camp where we were, because we would then certainly scare the moose. .Ac cordingly we poshed up the valley for another mCe. through an open forest, the ground being quite free frra nn- tlmber, and coveredM with a carpet of thick moea, in-which came to inotBer beaver-teeaaow, wBJHi offend fine feed for the posies.. On its edge we hastily pitched camp, just at dusk. We tossed down the packs in a dry grove, dose to the brook, and turned the tired ponies loose in the meadow, hobbling tbe little mare that carried the belL The ground was smooth. We threw a cross-pole from one to tbe other of two young spruces, which happened to stand handily, and from it stretched and pegged out a piece of canvas, which we iere using as a shelter teat. Beneath this we spread our bedding, laying under it tbe canvas sheets In which it had been wrapped. There was still bread left over from yesterday's baking, and in a few moments the kettle was boiling, and the frying-pan sizzling, while one of US' skinned and cut into suitable pieces two grouse we had knocked over on oar march. For fear df fright ening the msose we built but a small fire, and went to bed soon after sup per, being both tired and cold. For tunately, what little breeze there was blew up the valley. At dawn I was awake, and crawled out of my buffalo bag. shivering and yawning. My companion still slum bered heavily. White frost covered whatever had been left outside. The cold was sharp, and I hurriedly slipped a pair of stout moccasins on my feet, drew on my gloves and cap, and started through the ghostly woods for the meadow where we had seen the moose, sign. The tufts of grass were stiff with frost; black ice skimmed tbe edges and quiet places of tbe little brook. I walked slowly, it being difficult not to make a noise by cracking sticks or brushing against trees. In the gloom; but tbe forest was so open that It fa vored me. When I reached the edge of the beaver-meadow it was light enough to shoot, though the front sight still glimmered indistinctly. Streaks of cold red showed that the sun would rise soon. Before leaving the shelter of the last spruces I halted to listen; and almost Immediately heard a curious splashing sound from the middle of tbe meadow. where the brook broadened into small willow-bordered pools. I knew at once that a moose was In one of these pools, wading about and pulling up tbe water-lilies br seising their slippery stems in bis Hps, plunging bis head deep under water to do so. The moose love to feed in this way in the hot months, when they spend all the time they can in the water, feeding or ly ing down; nor do they altogether abandon the habit even when the r His vast bulk loomed black. weather is so cold that Icicles form in their shaggy coats. Crouching, I stole noiselessly, along the edge of the willow-thicket. Tbe stream twisted through it from side to side In zigzags, so that every few .rods I got s glimpse down s lane of black water. In a minute I heard a slight splashing near me; and en passing the next point of bushes, I saw the shad owy outline of the moose's hindquar ters, standing in a bend of the water. In a moment he walked onwards, dis appearing. I ran forward a couple of rods, and then turned in among the willows, to reach tbe brook where It again beat back towards mo. The splashing in the water, and the rustling of the moose's body against tbe frozen twigs, drowned the little noise made by my moccaslned feet. I strode out on tbe bank at the lower end of a long narrow pool of water, dark and half frozen. In this pool, half, way down and facing me. but a score of yards off. stood the mighty marsh beast, strange and uncouth in look as some monster surviving over from the Pliocene. His vast bulk loomed black and vague in the dim gray dawn; his huge antlers stood out sharply: col umns of steam rece from his nostrils. For several seconds he fronted me mo tionless; then he began to turn, slowly, and as if he had a stiff neck. When quarter way round I fired into his shoulder: whereat he reared and bound ed on the bank with great leap, van ishing in the willows. Through these I heard him crash like a whirlwind for a dozen rods;, then down he fell, and when I reached tbe spot he had ceased to struggle. The ball bad gone through his heart.
