PANTHER AND MAN WAITEDFOR MOVE They Were Face to Face In the Indian Jungle. HE COULDN'T USE GUN. Interlacing Leaves Prevented Shot and Beast Got Away After Killing Goat. Hunter Bagged Him a Year Later In the Same Place. S OME years ago, says a writer in the London Field. 1 was en camped in a district which was seldom visited by Europeans in India, and news was brought to me of a large panther which bad its home in some rocky hills not far from my encampment. One afternoon 1 proceeded to the bills, where the panther's den was pointed out to me. A scrutiny of the ground showed it to be most unfavorable for securing a suitable position for building a shelter wherein to wait for the animal. Ttyi cave in which the panther bad taken up its abode was at the foot of some high precipitous basaltic rocks, where it was impossible to select a site above the cave, while the ground from the cave sloped steeply downward to the valley beneath and was covered with large bowlders interspersed with scrub jungle. Used a Goat For Bait. As It was impossible to find a tree strong enough to bear a shelter, a plat form raised about three feet from the ground, so as to get a view over some bowlders, bad to be built, and this was inclosed in the front and on both sides by leaf screens. After this was built a goat was tied about twenty yards in front in a position where it would be visible from the entrance to the cave. Having seen to all the preparations. I returned to camp, and the next morn ing the shikaris reported that the goat had been killed. At 3:30 p. m. my shikari went to the place, and. as the goat bad been al most entirely devoured, another goat was tied, and the shikari and myself took our seats on the platform. To my disgust I found that the shikari had a cold, and his sneezing and coughing were sufficient to drive away any animal. I therefore sent him away, and he had not been gone more than ten minutes when I heard a deep growling behind me. Turning around suddenly. I saw a large panther lying full length in the scrub watching me from about three yards' distance. He immediately made a couple of bounds to the left (5 (SJStLo "I SAW A LARGE PANTHER." of my shelter, where he sat on his hindquarters, watching me and growl ing viciously. It was impossible for me to shoot, as the leaves in the screen to the left were too tightly interlaced Only Chance For a Shot. My only chance for a shot was that He would pass along in front of where I was sitting, toward the goat. This apparently he had no intention of do ing. and we remained in our respec tive positions until it was nearly dark, when he quietly made off. On whistling up my men 1 told them about the behavior of this panther, and the shikari informed me that on leaving he had met him about fifty yards from where I was seated, and, as he would not move, he threw a stone at him. when he slunk off, snarling and growling, into the jungle. As It was now quite dark I unloaded my rifles, and we proceeded together to untie the goat. We had not gone half a dozen yards when there was a rush, and we heard a struggle. The shikari and my self both said that he was the panther at the goat but the other men would not have it. 1. however, reloaded and. as it was too dark to see. advanced slowly to the goat On coming up to it we found it in Its last death struggle, the panther having seized it by the neck an he rush ed past. As I was leaving the next day, I was unable to Hit up again for the panther, but the next year when I was at the same place I was fortu nate enough to bag him. The One Who Waited An Illustration of "Patient Waiters Are No Losers" I By CLARISSA MACKIE »i«»!•*'i«»*»»•!•*t Jimmy Dill pattered down the stops of the subway station, grabbed a tick et from the window, shot across the intervening space and caught the downtown express without a second to spare. Settling himself in a corner, he open ed a morning newspaper and endeavor ed to interest himself in its contents. The train roared through the tube, gusts of vitiated atmosphere swept into the car. and Jimmy yawned. For the first time he saw Margaret Gray. If he had known that she was there he would have found a seat be side her and thus have been miserably happy for a brief time. Then his glance fell upon the slender youth who ac companied Margaret, and a fierce jeal ousy smote him so that he buried his face behind the newspaper again. The train seemed to rattle a tune that expressed the unhappy situation in which Jimmy Dill found himself. "That's the way—that's the way," rattled the train. "A feller never never looks at a girl—until the right— one comes along—and you find—she's at the next desk—in your office all—the time. Then—one day she flashes—a diamond—big diamond engagement ring. and you're all in—all in." So rattled the train in accompaniment to Jimmy's miserable thoughts until they rounded the curve and stopped at City Hall station. Jimmy fled by another door and reached the street, while Margaret and Harry Lee sauntered leisurely up the stairs. "I'd like to punch his face," mut tered Jimmy fiercely, and his fist de- HE SOUNDLY WALLOPED YOUNG MR. T.TETT- scribed a half circle that ended in the imaginary countenance of Harry Lee. Seated behind his desk in the office of the big lumber firm where lie was billing clerk. Jimmy knew to the very instant when the door opened to ad mit Margaret, a little late and quite breathless. When Jimmy closed his eyes he could always see Margaret dressed in a pretty cotton house frock with a white apron on setting the table for supper or watching for him at the window or sewing by a shaded lamp. Always she was connected with a home picture. To Jimmy Dill thii3 meant a great deal, for he hud never known a real home. He had been reared in an orphan asylum, and when he was old enough to earn his living he had existed in 'iall bedrooms of boarding houses of various classes—al ways respectable, never homelike. A bell rang sharply, and Margaret picked up notebook and pencils and disappeared through the door leading to Mr. Compton's private office Her departure started a little buzz of gossip in the room. "I don't believe she knows." said one of the girls to Jimmy. "Knows what?" asked Jimmy gruffly. "What a sport Harry Lee is. They say"— And her voice whispered cer tain matters of gossip that Jimmy Dill had long known to be facts. He knew that Harry Lee was utterly unworthy of Margaret. lie knew that he was a gambler, that he drank and that he was utterly unreliable also that he had held nine different office positions in twelve months. "Couldn't say." Jimmy had respond ed when the girl had finished her re marks. "Have you the invoice for that last shipment of long leaf pine. Miss Dawson?" "No I haven't!" snapped Miss Daw son, and she remarked to her neigh bor that Jimmy Dill was grumpy be cause Margaret Gray was going to be married. That night Marguret handed in her resignation and shook hands and said goodby to every one in the office. There were much talk ami laughter about the approaching wedding, and Margaret's eyes were very bright. When she came to .Tltnuiy bis cold band closed her warm one for the briefest Instant. "T hope you will be* THE COURIER-DEMOCRAT THURSDAY. AUGUST 21, 1913 'I' i|. .j, 4 4. ft very happy. Miss Gioy." he said even' ly. and only Margaret detected the strained note in his voice. Then she was gone, and they all talk ed at once about what they should buy for a wedding present. Miss Dawson took up a collection, and Jimmy drop ped his $2 in with the same sort of feeling that one experiences in buying a funeral wreath for a departed friend. The days were empty after that. Jimmy did not know the date of Mar garet's wedding. He didn't want to know. The girls in the office would soon enlighten him. He was sick of the whole thing. Suddenly opportu nity thundered at his door, and he was offered a very advantageous position with another concern. This was a distinct rise for Jimmy, and the change did him good. It took him away from the immediate neighborhood of the people who knew Margaret Gray. He wanted to forget her. Absorbed in his new work, he suc ceeded in forgetting her to a certain degree, but one noontime while he was sauntering around Battery park he met her face to face as she was hurrying toward South Ferry. She was dressed in white linen, and under her white hat her face looked very pale. "How do you do?" she smiled up at Jimmy, and a warm color waved across her cheeks. "How do you do?" returned Jimmy dazedly. "I—er—I should say how do you do, Mrs. Lee." Again the color flooded her face, and this time Jimmy recognized it as the flag of embarrassment "Haven't you heard?" she asked faintly. "Heard? No I haven't heard any thing." "You knew that I am not married?" she asked in a surprised tone. "No!" "I am not going to be." Her voice broke a little, but she smiled bravely. "It's best to find out people before you marry them than afterward, isn't it?" "Yes, but—ah, say, it's too bad, Mar garet!" Jimmy would have gladly un dertaken to reform Harry Lee and hasten that young man's marriage to Margaret if the deed would have brought back the sunshine to her eyes and the smile to her face. "I am glad but, oh. Jimmy. I didn't know that he was so mean nobody knows at the office. They believe it is because of his habits. But—but he said to let it go at that. But there was another reason." Margaret's voice was quavering. Jimmy slipped a hand under her arm and piloted her through the crowd streaming toward the ferry. When they were on board and had found a secluded corner he said: "Tell me about it if you want to. You know I'm not a cackler." "There isn't much to tell, only the day of the wedding. It was to be very quiet at my aunt's. He never came." "He never came!" Jimmy growled at her. She shook her head. "He came the next day and said he forgot—forgot, Jimmy! And then when I told him that there wouldn't be any wedding he said it would be a distinct relief to him. He didn't think he was cut out for a married man." "You loved him a lot. Margaret?" whispered Jimmy hoarsely. "I believed I did at first." said Mar garet drearily, "but it was only a first attraction, and I drifted into an en gagement, and then I got to compar ing him with some one—with others— and he appeared so mean and con temptible. But I was engaged to him. and I would keep my promise. But it seems he was tired of me too." "Never mind. Margaret." said Jim my. "You ought to be glad enough to get out of it so easy. Did 1 tell you about my new job with the Conti nental people?" Thereupon he told Margaret of his rising luck, and when they reached Brooklyn she bade him goodby with a ghost of her old smile lingering on her lips. After office hours he rode up to Cen tral park and wandered among the shady trees, trying to figure out in his mind just what this change of Mar garet Gray's plans might mean to him. If she only loved him it would be so easy, but lie did not want to gain her consent when her heart was sore from a quarrel with Harry Lee. He sauntered through a bowery path where solitude and bird songs were in accordance with his newly stirred sen sations. Here, in the shadiest corner of the most secluded path, he came upon a skinny youth from whose lips there drooped a cigarette. He was lounging on a bench. "Mr. Lee!" rapped out Jimmy. "Huh?" The youth leaped to his feet and faced the other with a queer look of surprise. A smile curled his lip. "I guess you're the chap that got my girl away from me!" he sneered. "What are you talking about?" de manded Jimmy. "I guess you know! We had a little difference, and Margaret —I told her that she was gone on you, and—well, oh, she cried and said you was too sensible to look at a silly thing like her. and then she denied it. and, oh. well, you knew the wedding was off, eh?" "Yes. I know the wedding didn't come off. and I know why it didn't oc cur at the proper time. So now I'm going to relieve my feelings a little. Lee. There!" Jimmy Dill's fists flew back and forth as he soundly wallop ed young Mr. Lee. And when that youth lay on the grass and looked reproachfully up at his antagonist through a rapidly swelling eye Jimmy Dill looked down at bis foe. "I just had to do It. Lee. I believe It will do you good in the end, and now you'll have to excuse me. I've got to get train for Brooklyn." Woman's\Vodd Mrs. Guilford Plans Suf frage Roller Chair Parade. C'fcJws MBS. ELLA GUILFOB1X Suffrage on the board walk! Yes It has reached even that stage. You simply can't get away from the yellow banners with their inscriptions "Votes For Women" nowadays. Coney Island was invaded long ago.' So has been the solemnity of baseball fields all over the Country, and it is really not surprising after all that the "cause" has popped its irrepressible head up on the board walk of Atlantic City. Devoted to pleasure and fatal to thought as this same board walk is, it has responded with delightful courtesy to the presence of an alien. In a land where nothing grows but taffy, an oc casional mosquito, rolling chairs and moving pictures a little touch of a serious nature is as welcome as a black velvet bow on a light summer frock. The invader of the board .walk this summer will be tfaffffignftge roller chair parade, whicfr'feke place in a few weeks. Mrs. Ella Guilford, an ardent New York suffragist, was the instigator of this very novel idea. No speechmaking is permitted on the board walk at Atlantic City, but the superintendent has promised permis sion for a "voiceless parade." Just see what women can suffer for a great cause! Fifty chairs, with women gowned in yellow and white, carrying yellow ban ners, will make the historic board walk sit up and take notice, thanks to the efforts of Mrs. Guilford. What to Do In Vacation. Play, play, play! Play all the time, whatever your social standing or your ordinary duty. Let father forget that there is an office of which he is the head or a business that he assists to manage, and let mother forget for the time all the household duties and little everyday worries and frets. Leave them all behind, and for a fortnight, at least, be care free and happy. Let mother go out all day and play with the childreu or sit on the beach, bathe or build sand castles and leave the frocks and little garments to be made and mended some other time. Do not try to do the usual amount of sewing let the children go about happily without stockings: then there will be little or no mending to be done till after you go home again. Play cricket, croquet, golf, paddle nnd play the children's games with them and be young again and you will get lots of health and happiness. One important thing should be no ticed during a seaside, or country holi day. You are in different surroundings to what is usual to you: you are out in the open air much more than is usual: therefore extra rest is needed. A wise plan is for the whole family, directly after lunch or midday dinner, to lie dowu and rest quietly for half an hour or an hour. Go to sleep if pos sible. but at any rate lie down with the blinds drawn and keep still for a time. It is good for the children and for their elders, and in the long run the holiday will do much more good to all. Dressing Up the Summer Tailormade. Is your crash or linen suit too se verely plain for afternoons? If you think so don't despair. There's an ?asy way of smartening it. All you need is a yard of linen with which to make a deep and wide chemisette which can be slipped on over any plain lingerie blouse that is collarless. The chemisette should be hand embroidered it each side of the row of crystal but tons fastening its scalloped edged fronts, and its neck should be finished with a wide turned over collar, also hand embroidered and scalloped edged. This collar, coining over that on the Suit's jacket, will extend almost to the arm eyes and effectively garnish t.h» upper portion of the costume. Restored to Health.

PENNSYLVANIA'S MEMORIAL Handsome Monument at Gettysburg Honors Dead Heroes. The battlefield at Gettysburg is cov ered with various monuments honoring the memory of the dead of both the north and south, but none of these is as handsome and imposing as that erected by the state of Pennsylvania in memory of the living and departed heroes of the Keystone State. This monument is situated on Cemetery hill, one of the most prominent sec tions of the battlefield. It attracted much attention during the celebration recently. Names of famous Pennsylvania gen erals and leaders are inscribed in ap propriate places on the memorial. Photo by American Press Association.
