A t'oug-ar Story.
TheCorvalll Times (ells It:
"Polo" and George Avery left Cor-
vallls tlireo weeks ago for a rousing
old time Iu the mountains. Well,
they had it. They returned ye.lerday
noou and were heavily laden with
dried meat and stories of adventure
that rival Klppllng's "Jungle Stories."
They hunted Iu the. Yachalts, Five
mile Creek and Ten-mile Creek
countries, and at Five-mile Creek they
were jollied by Jim Wilkinson, a
nephew of our Reaver Creek Jim. Jim
I a good hunter, as well as "Pole" and
George, and they had famous success.
When Ueorge was asked "wnai
luck?" ho replied, "thlrteeu deer, a
bear, a cougar, and cut a bee tree."
Jim Wilkinson had a dog with him
to use lu hunting and he ulso had a
pup along that he waa teaching to
hunt. Some one of the party had
killed a deer and taken It to camp.
Arriving there, tho carcass was thrown
down In front ol die tent near the
place where the pun was chained. Not
one of the party was far from camp,
and either George, or "Pole," or both of
them, were shouting wlililn a short
distance of camp, and Jim wus but a
rew rods away, wlien mere wa a ter
rible screaming, howling, snurllug n:id
kl-yl-lng to be heard at the snot where
the pup was chained. Jim wiikiiisoii
rushed up and beheld the pup In the
clutches of the cougar. As often ha-
pciii in case ot an Imcrgency, Id uuu
wa empty, and what was worse the
cougar was Inside of the tout lying on
bis cartridges ana ere long me nun
was literally torn lo pieces. He
shouted for George to come quickly,
and when the latter reached the scene,
Wilkinson seized his gun and shot the
animal, killing It right in the lent.
Jim was so enraged at the destroyer of
Id pup that he graiilied a knllo auu
cut it into strip. I lie cougar was a
female and It must have been very
hungry for It never clinched at the
approach of the men. The scalp was
saved ami win uring a oouuiy 01 iwo
or three dollars.
