To get lost in the woods is not an
uncommon occurrence, and what to do
tinder the circumstances is so well told
by Horace Kephart in "Field and
Stream" that readers fond of camnlnB
and woodcraft will be interested:
"Ibe first thine that one should do
when L realizes that he has lost his

and sit down. Don't take one more
step until you have recovered your wits
so that you can trace on the cround

the estimated location of such water
courses and other landmarks as you
nave passeu. j nen make up your mind
that if you must stay cut all night,
alone In the woods, It is no killing
matter, but likely an interesting ad
venture. Having recovered your men
tal balance, take note of the lay of the
land around you. the direction of its

that you can climb, and having gained
your outlook, note the compass direc

marks, mapping them on a bit of

treacherous. The courses of small
streams show where the main valley
lies. Decide where to go. take the com
