A CRAFTY DEER.
Tlio Method llj-Wlileli n Wnry Old Stag
Deer have learned wonderful cunning
from their hardships in the chase.
Sometimes n wary stag, started up from
his covert, will run Into another leafy
haunt whero a young animal has taken j
refuge, and turn him out, lying dow
In his place, no doubt hoping with all
his panting heart that the hunters will
not know tho difference. Hurried fortft
from that resting-place, he then doubles,
nnd turns, and perhaps takes to the wa
ter, not only as solaco for his hcateA
blood but to throw tho hounds off th
scent. One old stag, mentioned i
"Forty-five years of Sport," had eve
more advanced ideas than these.
For many years past Lord Lovnt had
been trying to hunt down this stag,
nlclcnamed "Square Toes," but as th
animal had extraordinary cunning, it
was fifteen years before ho succeeded
In getting n shot at It. At lust, on
day, when lie nnd his stalker were i
hot pursuit of "Square Toes" and hU
several hinds, tho animals iisconded a.
hill, nnd us they reached tho sky-line,
the hinds alone seemed to cross it.
Again tho old strategist had mysteri
Tho stalkcl- look down his glass and
shut it with a slap, and Lord Uivat,
equally disgusted, resigned himself t
the usual situation. Among the niea
present, however, was a now hand, whe
deehircd bashfully, that ono of th
hinds, In going over the sky-line, ap
peared to have thrco ears.
"My lord," cried tho stalker, joyfully,
on hearing the remark, "yon stng U
with the hinds; we'd better be going."
However, Lord Lovnt had seen n
reason for believing Uw stag lobe there,
and still hesitated.
"There's no time to bo lost," insistc'
the num. "Come, my lord, lot us b
"But how on earth do you make that
out?"' asked his muster.
"Well, my lord," replied the man, "If
you will bo starting, to save time, I will
tell you as wo go. When you get to tho
top of the hill we shall see Square Toes
or I am mistaken, for do you not kuow
yon lad said one hind seemed to havo
three curs? Well, it's just possible yo
third oar was a brow antler, and the
canny beast litis all this timo been 'do
ing us' by throwing his horns on his
back, and getting in among tho hinds,
when going over tho sky-lino."
Over the hill they rode, and found thu
clever stag placidly feeding. Stul to re
late, his career as an inventor was then
and there out short, but his "method"
has probably passed on, in tradition, to
other members of the herd. Youth's,
