Let those who have never slept out on the ground through an August night say that it is impossible that one should be cold! During all the early warm part of the night a family of skunks rustled about us, and toward morning we both woke because of the chill. On the third night we secured the blessed opportunity of nesting in a farmer's granary. All humor had gone out of our expedition.

"Not it," said Peter; "you didn't go because you were brave, but because Bobbie and I aren't skunks. Now where's the nearest house, I wonder? You can't see anything here for the trees." "There's a roof over there," said Phyllis, pointing down the line. "That's the signal-box," said Peter, "and you know you're not allowed to speak to signalmen on duty. It's wrong."

"I knew a 200-pound pig once that worried himself down to ninety because the man who kept him also kept skunks," replied Father Roland, with his odd chuckle. "Next to small-pox and a bullet through your heart, worry is about the blackest, man-killingest thing on earth, David. See that bag?" He pointed to one of the bulging gunny sacks. "That's the antidote," he said.

They had become as the fowls of the air. "I was acrost the mountain last month," said Mr. Boone, presently, "and one of them skunks had stole Campbell's silver spoons at Abingdon. Campbell was out arter him for a week with a coil of rope on his saddle. But the varmint got to cover." Mr.

Mink came over from frog hunting in the brook, drawn by the good smell in the air. Skunks lumbered down from the hill, with a curious, hollow, bumping sound to announce their coming. Weasels, and one grizzly old pine marten, too slow or rheumatic for successful tree hunting, glided out of the underbrush and helped themselves without asking leave.

"We were just speakin' to one another about them Hydrophoby Skunks," said Bill apologetically. "This here Cañon is where they mostly hang out and frolic 'round." I laid down my cigar, too. I admit I was interested. "Oh!" I said softly like that. "Is it? Do they?" "Yes," said Johnny. "I reckin there's liable to be one come shovin' his old nose into that door any minute.

"That's what I say," wailed Emma. "Why didn't you tell us after breakfast instead of after supper?" "Yes. I know I shall dream of snakes and skunks and other creeping, crawling things to-night," added Anne. Hi laughed silently, masking his mouth with a hand. "String a rope all the way around your tent on the ground. No snake will go over that, especially a horsehair rope.

Let them all perish, the honest skunks!" Tamara carefully and tenderly stroked Jennka's head. "Can it be that you'll go the limit, Jennechka?" "Yes. And without any mercy. All of you, however, don't have to be afraid of me. I choose the man myself. The stupidest, the handsomest, the richest and the most important, but not to one of you will I let them go afterward. Oh!

The three assassins were also dead. Except for a few cuts on the scalp of the one who had been felled with the bottle, there was not a mark on any of them. Cavu-hin-Avoran kicked one of them in the face and cursed. "We killed the skunks too quickly!" he cried. "We should have overcome them alive, and then taken our time about dealing with them as they deserved."

The Shoshones are further north, and are friendly; the Bannacks and Nez Perces are in northwest, near Snake River; and the Sioux more on the north and east, on other side of great mountains. 'Rappahoes here." "Waal," Jerry said wrathfully, "onless they catch Harry asleep, some of the darned skunks will be rubbed out afore they get his scalp. It is a good country for hiding trail.
