T. C. Scurr, of Dothan, this county, makes the
following good point relative to the protection of deer.
He writes: "It takes about two little beauties (spot
ted fawns) each day to satisfy the appetite of the pan
ther. I can find these little fellows nearly every day
in the week now, and in the Fall I will perhaps see a
hundred large deer before I see one of them, and
where are they? It would be much more to the credit
of the state to 'fix a bounty of not less than $25 for the
scalp of ever' panther killed in the state instead of ar
resting a poor man living in the hills for killing a
buck at this time of the year. If the state is too poor
to afford a bounty, then the federal government ought
to place a bounty on them, for I do believe that a pan
ther kills more deer in a year than any half-dozen hun
ters. It is said that a panther cannot be caught in a
trap. I have a steel trap that weighs 42 pounds, and
during the last rain storm a panther killed ury largest
Angora wether. The next day we found what was
left of the goat (about one-half) ncath covered up. We
set th'etrap and in four hours had him. I have long
since learned that when a pantUer furnishes the bait
himself he can be caught in a trap, and in no other
way have I been able to get them into a trap. This
is my experience with the cowardly brute.

This true story comes from Lake Cush
man in the wooded wilds of western
Washington :
Mies Margaret Whitmore, a young col
lege girl whose home is in Xew Orleans,
is here in the Olympic mountains cheat
ing consumption of a victim and giving
the lie to the decision of a number of
learned doctors, who, after a grave con
sultation some six months ago, pro
nounced her a hopeless invalid with a
bare half year to live.
Miss Whitmore was eeemingly in a
decline in Xew Orleans and her lungs
were thought to be affected, but when
the doctors said she could not lire she
refused to accept their decree. With
her mother and a companion she set out
for western Washington, and when she
arrived at Lake Cushman, she immed
iately begun a system of out-of-door
life and sleeping under the skies. She
refused even the shelter of the tent
which her mother and companion slept
in, and despite all protests spent the
coldest nights out of doors, except when
the rain made that impossible. She be
gan to grow stronger almost immediate
ly, and to her tramps through the woods
she added other exercises. Hunting
and fishing and occasionally chopping
down trees grew to be her favorite
pastimes, and as skirts were hampering
in all of these pursuits she discarded
them and substituted a neat masculine
costume of sweater and golf trousers
with high boots.
That Miss Whitmore's plan has sue
cesafully held consumption at bay and
restored the invalid to robust health is
attested by the fact that she has in-
created in weight from 10S pounds to
133 pounds, and that she is firm of flesh
and bard-muscled.
Notwithstanding the latter fact and
that the plucky young woman is now
past all danger of the fatal malady, she
refuses to go back to her southern home.
She baa become so fond of her free life
in the woods that she says she intends
to spend the summer here, camping out
and "roughing it." It is her pride that
all the firewood burned in the camp is
felled and chopped by her ax, and old
lumbermen who have seen her at her
work say that she handles the ax like a
veteran wood chooper.
