HOW AN ELK SWAM TO SAFETY
CAPTAIN MAYNE REID

The spot where the boy voyageurs had landed was at the bottom of a small bay. The country back from the lake was level and clear of timber. Here and there, nearer the shore, however, its surface was covered with small clumps of willows that formed little thickets of deep green. Beside one of these thickets, within a hundred yards of the beach, the fire had been kindled, on a spot of ground that commanded a view of the plain for miles back.
" Look yonder!" cried Francois, who had finished eating, and had risen to his feet. "What are these, captain?" Franqois pointed to some objects that appeared at a great distance off upon the plain.
The "captain" rose, placed his hand so as to shade his eyes from the sun, and, after looking for a second or two in the direction indicated, replied by saying, "Wapiti."
" I'm no wiser than before I asked the question," said Francois. "What is a wapiti?"
" Why, elk, if you like."
" Oh! elk-now I understand you. I thought they were elk, but they're so far off I wasn't sure."
Lucien at this moment rose up, and looking through a small telescope which he carried, confirmed the statement of the "captain," and pronounced it to be a herd of elk.
" In my opinion," continued Lucien, "the wapiti is the noblest of all the deer kind. It has all the grace of limb and motion that belongs to the common deer, while its towering horns give it a most majestic and imposing appearance."
