HOW AN ELK SWAM TO SAFETY

but sprang outward and downward. A heavy splash followed, and for some seconds both wapiti and wolverene were lost under the water. They rose to the surface, just as the boys reached the bank, but they came up separately.
The dip had proved a cooler to the fierce wolverene; and while the wapiti was seen to strike boldly out into the lake and swim off, the wolverene, evidently out of his element, kept plunging about clumsily, struggling to get back to the shore. Francois emptied his gun at the savage beast, and the brute sank dead to the bottom of the lake. Strange to say, not one of the party had thought of firing at the buck. Persecution by so many enemies had won for him their sympathy. But the buck swam on, keeping almost in a direct line out into the lake. It was evident to all that he could not swim across the lake, as its farther shore was not even visible. Realizing that he must either return to where they were, or drown, the boys stood still and watched his motions. When he had got about half a mile from the shore, to the surprise of all, he was seen to rise higher above the surface, and then all at once to stop, with half of his body clear out of the water! He had come upon a shoal, and seemed determined to remain there until such time as it should be safe for him to return.
Later the boys found that the buck had been wounded. An arrowhead was sticking in one of his thighs. The Indians had been after him, and very lately too, as the wound showed. It would not have been a mortal wound, if the arrowhead had been removed; but, as it was, it finally proved his death. The wound explained why the wolves had as sailed an animal that otherwise, from his great size and strength, would have defied them. The wolves had seen the wolverene as they approached the thicket, and that accounted for their strange behavior in the pursuit.
