made some dreadful proposal, ho could

couldn't think of it," ho said, and sat
down. Fejr a minute or so I stood there
staring at him, and then ho turned
round. "All right, havo your whim,

I had just snatched up tho trnnk,

sprang up and blurted out. He had a

"J"e, I've just recollected I shall
want that mail shirt aud helmet and
the rest for the fancy dress ball at tho

looking at each other; I could hardly j

in that last famous duel scene, w here
tho unknown knight lifts his viscr and
stands revealed as Karl Angel.
"There, what's to be done? It Ftarts

went on, staring past rno very strange

stop to change, but as sor.n as the cur-

just conscious that I bad partly strug

Weutworth's face brought oblivion

. Those who conclndo that thero are
no ferocious or dangerous wild animals
iu tho mountains of western TY-xna '
would experience a very sudden chango
of sentiment if they should meet a '
panther face to face in some lonely can
yon. Tfcv maguiticent uuiiual now j
chained in front eif our wagons is calhid 1
by sonio a Mexican or mountain lion j
and by others a panther, the is of a!
dull yellowish color and will weigh i
moro than four or live ordinary b op-j
ards. She measures just 1 1 f.-et from
the tip cf her noso to the end of her lou.
Although she has been i:i captivity
only a few days she i. astonishingly doc
ile so long as sho can see her two cubs
that aro chained under the wagons. The
momeut they set up a whine she springs !
to her feet, all her hair turns the wrong '
way, and whilo her eyes look like glow- i
itig coals of fire she gnashes her sharp
white fangs and tries the sr.vugth of 1
her chain. If it were not str ng 1 uougli
to hold an ox, I should pr, fer that thero !
were two or three counties between ns i
just at that particular moment. Thai
cubs aro already as gentle as lau.bs and 1
as playful as kittens, and nothing I
pleases them better than t i crawl um'u r J
our blankets at night and cuddl.j n,i
close to us to i'scape the chilly norther I
We captured her in the mountains of I
tho Deall river in western Texas, aud I I
doubt if a moro daring feet was ever
accomplished by a crowd e.f huut.rs.
Game of all kinds is very ui. umlaut in
this region, and tha hoys had tired of
shooting deer, antelopes and turkeys.
Several big wolves aud two or thiro
panthers had been slaughtered, and it
was evident from tho numerous tracks
about tho water holes that there woro
plenty moro of them in tho mountains.
One evening tho hounds struck" a hot
trail and ran a big panther into a avo
on tho side of a mountain.
That night while discussing the ad
ventures incident to tho day's hunt two
daring young men, Petmaker and Black,

alive. Both aro Texas re ared boys and
experienced hunters. The proposition
met with unanimous approval, and all
volunteered to assist iu tho desperate
undertaking. The next day as we rode
out cf camp some of tho hoys grew
bolder, and two of them, who were ex
pert vaqturos, declared that they in
tended to rope the beast if the v ennbl
get clcso enough to her. These" two-

out of the brush and stopped within 211

flashed through the air and landed right
around the wild animal's neck.
