would try to capture it.
Two good-sized steel traps wore set

at that point wan cut down quite deep,
Mr. liillinge had not gone far ulong
thiu path until ho heard a noise above

crouching on tho high hank just about
to spring down upon him.
He fired at tho brute a quickly as
possible nut it did not stop him, and tho

clawa tearing hH ileah aotho panther
alighted on hia back and ahoulders.
Tho beaHt had two of its feet fastened

Mr. liillinge' life. During tho ecufll.i
both tho cotnbatunta fell over tho bluff
