After the discharge of the gnn he lay unconscious on the ground fur tliree-qnarters of an hour, and after gaining consciousness his cries attracted the homesteader, and they reached him jut in time to save him from a moat frightful death. The wolves, which at this season of the year are very vicious, had gathered a bunt him in Urge numbers, and they were making prearations for a great feast.

Thirty-six peers, bound to Mr. Gladstone either by office or by direct creation, voted for the bill. While 81 peers who owe their titles wholly or tn part to Mr. Gladstone voted against the bill, and four more of the same category announced that tbey would have opposed the bill, but were Bnabte to be present.

It being too hot to move ahiMit in the aft ernoon. I had the natives alina my ham mock liet a sen two small trees a boot 90 paces from the tent. In this po-i'inn 1'got the f nil shaile of a lance tree toihe south and was far enonich away from the chatter ins: natives to rest undisturbed by their their voices. I fell aislerp at about 3 o'clock, and my awakrninic two hours later was a very quick one. I was lying on my right side, facing the big tree and looking into the forest tsryonal. The first big limb on the tree was about 13 feet from the ground and branched to the east. The trunk of the tree, as we afterward ascertained, was ex actly 34 feet from njr hammock, while the limb was a foot further. I did not awake with a start nor did I nib my ryes and yawn. 1 simply ornnl my eyes as'if I had abut them only a minute before, and I found myself looking at t be limb I have spoken of. My viMon was fornsnl on a spot about sis feet from the trunk, and though I was gazing in a dreamy way I felt a sudden thrill. In tbeMtuhlarkneM I caught sight of two firry eyes and made out the form of a wild ln-at crouched along the limit. The wonder is that I did not Mart np itb a shout to the natives, but so far as I can ivmcniln-r 1 could not move hand or foot. It was a sort of nightmare which belli my limit, and yet I was wide awake and bad all my senses I Hit that of feeling. Tbe natives had gone down to the river to flsb, leaviug the camp quite alone, and aside from the hum of Insects and the oc casional mite of a bird the neighborhood was as quiet as if nothing lived. While I did ng move a finger tbe beast saw my eyes ojien and raised bis head. I realized in a flash that it was a pautber, and that I was I lie game be was after. Prowling through the jungle.be bad got my scent and followed it up. As tbe hammock was not over two fret from the ground be could bave crept up and picked me out of it, but be was probably a bit puzzled over the article, lie bad climbed the tree to get a view from altove. and 30 seconds after I got mj eyes on him I knew that he meant to attack me. Had I suddenly sat up and flung my arms about and shouted be would Cbably have made off. but I could not moved a finger if a dozen lives de pended on it. "It's male panther and a large one," I mused as 1 got tbe outlines of bis form. "A panther is capable of making a prodigious leap, but I doubt if be can covet that dis tance. As tbe limb is parallel with tbe hammock be labors under a disadvantage in making liis spring. He will try it, though. His ears are lying flat, his tail moving, and his lip has fallen down till his yellow fangs are plain to view. If be had a run of 10 feet along that limb, be conld clear tbe hammock, but as it is he must leap sideways. Hear his claws tearing tbe bark! N-e bow tbe red in his eyes changes to green and glints like a diamond in tbe glare of tbesiin! If I could set the ham mock swinging. It might frighten him. but 1 cannot move a muscle. Ahl He's mov ing farther out to get an advautage, but be does not find it. Kvery inch has got to he figured on In t he spring he will make. He backs np to his original position and snarls and spits like an angry cat. He's working upbis nerve to make tbe spring." Hark! There's a movement in the thick et! It can't Is? one of tbe natives, and no party of hunters would approach from that direction. The panther flattens himself down on the limb nud looks down and growls. A minute later be snarls and spits, and I hear t lie "Woof T of a fayeua as be trots away. For half a minute the ts-ast on the limit m-ms to tie sizing me np. He hns never seeu a man lying iu a ham mock lief ore. but be's sure it's a man, liv ing or (It-ad. He'll come in tbe next few seconds. I hear the sound of his claws as they take a firm hold, and there is a movement to his shoulders which cannot be mistaken. He gives bi tail three or four angry flirts, shakes his head as if annoyed by flies, and then 1 see a great ball in tbe air between Bie and tbe limb. It is coming straight at me, and with a yell I come to a sitting pos ture Just In time to see the panther strike the earth. He comes down just six feet short, sinks deep' into tbe alluvial, and turns end over end past tbe head of tbe hammock into the bushes. His movements are so swift that tbe eye can hardly follow tbem, and be has disappeared while I yet seem to see him ending over. There I sat, aad be bad only to come and eat me, but be did not return. With snarls and roars be charged right through the camp at tbe natives returning from the river. He was upon them before tbey it tbe alarm, and without seeming to pause fur an instant be bit one and clawed two others so savagely that they were laid np for weeks. While we were measuring tbe panther's leap, one of tbe natives aacended tbe tree to tbe limb to in spect it. It was not a sound limb, and just where tbe animal had placed bis hind feet a great splinter had been torn away. "Give him due credit, sahib," said the man as he brought tbe spliuter. "If tbe wood bail not given way when be made his leap, be would bave struck you. The pan ther la sliarurr than tbe tiger. He never leaps until he has gut the distance. Be sides, I found by tbe marks on tbe limb that be bail a sore foot, probably from a thorn, and be could not do hia beat.
