HOW AN ELK SWAM TO SAFETY

dog disappeared into the thicket when a loud snort was heard, followed by a struggle and the stamping of hoofs, and the next moment the wapiti came crashing through the bushes. All the boys ran round to the side he had taken, and had a full view of the animal as he bounded off. Instead of running free as before, he now leaped heavily forward; what was their astonishment on seeing that he carried another anivzal upon his back!
The boys could hardly believe their eyes, but there it was, sure enough, a brown, shaggy mass, lying flat along the shoulders of the wapiti, and clutching it with large, spreading claws. Francois cried out, "A panther!" Basil at first believed it to be a bear, but Norman, who had lived more in those parts where the animal is found, knew at once that it was the dreaded wolverene.
The boys, surprised by such an unexpected sight, had suddenly halted. Francois and Basil were about to renew tlfe pursuit, but Norman told them to remain where they were.
"They won't go far," said he; "let us watch them a bit. See! the buck takes to the water!"
The wapiti, on leaving the willows, had run straight out in the first direction that offered, which happened to be in a line parallel with the edge of the lake. His eye, how ever, soon caught sight of the water, and, doubling suddenly round, he made directly toward it, evidently with the intention of plunging in. He had hopes, no doubt, that by this means he might rid himself of the terrible creature that was clinging to his shoulders, and tearing his throat to pieces.
A few bounds brought him to the shore. Though there was no beach at the spot, the bank rising steeply from the water's edge to a height of eight feet, the buck did not hesitate,
