HOW AN ELK SWAM TO SAFETY

Lucien was interrupted by an exclamation from Basil, who stood observing the wapiti.
" What is it?" they cried.
" Look yonder!" replied Basil, pointing at the herd. " Something disturbs them. Give me your glass, Lucien."
Lucien handed the telescope to his brother, who turned it toward the elk. The rest watched them with the naked eye. They could see that there was some trouble among the animals. There were only six in the herd, and even at the distance the boys could tell that they were all bucks.

The wapiti was plainly coming toward them, and they could make out the wolves following upon his heels, strung out over the prairie like a pack of hounds. When first started, the buck was a full half mile distant, but in less than a minute's time he came breasting forward until the boys could see his sparkling eyes and the
