The six mor.th3 that we had been in tho Grout Basin had occupied us chiefly along the a a a a courses of tho Panama pariah Elm and their tributaries and consequently very few of a a a the larger and More formidable animals with which All the Forest regions of the Interior avg abound. A but to had got fairly in to the wild beast Quot a a a regions at last and for a week or so had favored with a Good Deal More of. Their companion ship than was agreeable. Pumas .�?~.-�swleoparjs. Tigers an a Congers were quite As Kew Bumcrots As we had found the smaller Ani finals out in the Plains and ten times More annoying a particularly tho Puma the Only a a a amp one of All Turnow neighors who had no fear off dare and very Little of our rifles compelling a fus his audacious bravado generally to set our differences with the Lasso and Lance. Tho North Western Alope of the Tuou Hayo Talango is. Perhaps one of tho most singular is Sierra formations in the world. Prom its a a a soneral base which is densely wooded jut rout into the Grassy Plain Long narrow spurs Sierra of Moderato Elevation of irregular a Rafflle Natii and distance from each other and All i a Shoa Yily timbered to their very a a i Roku a Birds Eye Point of View the Moun Hun Mould probably appear something like in vast Cumb with the to Teeth irregularly set or some of them broken a Rulo to kept to the level ground passing around these spurs but occasionally when to came to a Barrier of trifling Elevation and had a fancy to replenish our Stoot of game to crossed on of the sierras Eib or direct or diagonally As suited our Pur Poso. One afternoon to were crossing one of these ridges Well in towards it Baso and Hail just reached tho Summit when Monde la our wild Paraguay a outrider came driving Baek All excitement shouting in his Lugus Franca of the Border 1 Ola 1 senors Samosa a ver 1 ten Liamos it los Lea Grande Lambor Easta puerto con al Carvalhosa. A in hat a that Mondoy two Lions having a death fight with tho horses a a a is sour. Bon combat 1 Vamos a 70v.�?���?<? we wont Down to see but Mendoza a eagerness had slightly Outram the facts. The Battlo was not set yet but it was inevitable Aad near at hand. There would to right Royal port Worth witnessing. So having gone Down the slope of tho Sierra at a rattling dash we Drew rein just within the fringe of tho Timber where to had in admirable Lookout and laying Clear tho fastenings of lances and uns Linging our rifles we were prepared for whatever emergency might Ariae. The level Grassy Plain Between the two spurs was less than half a mile in Width and about one third of tho distance across it counting from our Side,.and directly in front of our position was grazing quietly a Beautiful mouse coloured Maro having a pair of twin colt3, three months eld perhaps frisking about her. Off to her right and Down towards Trio Bottom of the Grassy Cove were two immense a pumas male and female stealing cautiously out towards tho unsuspicious Mare and Awa a to the left out in the Centre of the Meadow was a Small Herd of the finest looking horses i had Ever seen on Liano or Pampa. The animals had discovered tho pumas and were preparing for Battle while tho Lone Maro her attention diverted probably the gambol of her foals remained unconscious of danger. The Maro tvs about Midway Between Hor friends and enemies and Trio pair of ferocious brutes appeared to to calculating their chances of pouncing upon and bearing of the two foals before tho horse brigade could sweep Down upon them. There was something very much like reason in tho sagacity manifested the horses tho Herd numbered perhaps a Hundred animals among them. Some Twenty mares with foals their after a brisk trotting to and fro for two minutes half a dozen of the finest looking wild stallions i Over saw As Many staid matronly mares Drew out from the troop followed every Colt among them. Then As if practising a strategy to conceal their real intentions from tho pumas every animal put his or her head Down to the grass and began chopping along towards to Maro at a rate just about about equal in Speed to tho Advance of the pumas. It looked very much As if the horses wished to draw their enemies so far from their base that when the charges were made they would Able to out off their Retreat. _ both parties continued to and vane until the distance to tho Mare on either hand was lessened Tor Twenty five Yards. Trio situation was growing to us excitingly interesting. Mrs. Louise Elmor far the Host Rifle shot among us poised her Lansingburg Drew Back the Hammer and in three seconds More it is Likely there would have been a Royal Purina floundering there in the grass with a Bullet through his brain. But Harry promptly put Down tho weapon scolding his wife a Little in his Good Humoured Way a a Fie,.Louise, would you deprive us of the amusement to have been so Long in search Oil. A a i say its a shame 1 a downright barbarity to permit those for odious brutes to mangle and murder tho innocent foals a exclaimed Diana indignantly fingering the look of her Rifle impatiently. A a a Nao see Ora Diana al Leo Nao Mure to a and Mendoza was right. The lion would kill nothing. That to saw very clearly in less than thirty seconds. _ there came suddenly a shrill neigh from tho general of horse a magnificent Brown stallion a yell More like the scream of a Sharp Sot steam whistle than the neigh of a horse and in a moment the whole Troup was charging Down like a Lii rewind. It first they came four or five abreast in sections passing Between us and the Mare and beyond the pumas the head of tho column when the Leader suddenly swept round jul a Curvo Trutho left tho animals dropping into single Filo As regularly As tho Best drilled troopers on Earth could have done and round they went like lightening the left until ill Quot Bead of tie column came round and tapped the retire on the inside about ten animals leaving a space of about six feet Clear bet yen the laps of tho Circle which enclosed tie two pumas and the Mare with her foals. The moment that the Mare found herself encircled her friends she fell adroitly into tho ranks As did her foals. But the latter fell out again directly and on the outside too Whon they shot off at a Tangent and joined their Young friends in charge of the Matron Maves. The pumas finding themselves completely enveloped set up a terrific Roar and on the instant dashed upon their enemies with headlong brute fury. The male made a tremendous leap aimed at tho stallion who Wheeling on the instant his head twit ads the outer line let Fly his heels with such Force that their Eonta to with tho pumas Jajjo sounded like tho crack of a pistol. The vast brute was hurried Ond Over and Aero the revolving Circle and like lightening a fiery Gray dropped into the line wheeled and drove his hoofs into the Puma s ribs with a thud that sent tho monster rolling Over and Over howling with rage and agony. The female Puma sprung her leap upon a Beautiful mottled Mare some ton animals in Advance of tho Brown stallion and was More hardly dealt with than her mate. As Quick As thought the Mare and two of her nearest companions fell within the line turned Tail to arid Sipult Anesly there fell the crushing blows from six spiteful hoofs upon the pumas head breast and shoulders knocking ovary atom of fight out of her in a second and laying Hor out there on the grasses Limp As a rag.

Bound and round they went in that whirling dizzy Waltz dealing battering blows with their vengeful heels until the last spark of life was beaten from the mighty pumas and then with Many a proud neigh of Triumph they went prancing away from the Field of Battlo.

The fish that inhabit these a a Silver Banks i found As different in kind As tho scenery wa3 varied. They were of All forms colors and sizes from those of the symmetrical goby to the Glubo Liko Sunfish from those of Trio dullest Hue to tho changeable dul Flim from the spots of the Leopard to tho Hue of Trio Sunbeam from the harmless minnow to tho voracious shark. Some had Heads like squirrels other Liko Oats and drugs one of Small size resembled Trio Bill Torrier. Somo darted through tho water Liko meteors while others could scarcely to seen to Dinovo.

These were tho ribbon fish from four or five inches to Throe loot in length their eyes Are very Largo and protrude Liko thong of a Frog. Another fish was spotted Liko a Leopard from three to ten feet in length. They build their houses Liko heavers in which they spawn and tho male or female watches Trio egg until it hatches.

I cleanings from diffs torn roman Villas on coun us seats originally tho roman county cats or Villas were nothing More than very Humble form he uses but with tho Progress of wealth and luxury Lioy Woro made degrees Moro extensive and costly. Somo of them were surrounded with Large Parks in which Deer Aud various of Loigu wild animals were kept. Largo fish Ponds were also not Onfro quintly attached to them and Scro stocked it great exp onto. Generally however tho Villas Wero merely surrounded gardens and in size and appearance resembled those of modern Italy. Tho philosopher Pliny tho younger was a Nobleman and a Man of Fortuno and the owner of four magnificent Villas,._ of Woof those to has left minute descriptions. Ono of them was seated on a rising ground facing the South with the a Pennino mountains raising their tall Cliffs in the Distant background. A a portico fronted the House with a Terrieo before it adorned with various figures and bounded a hedge of Box. Clench you passed an easy descent into a Lawn surrounded walks and adorned with Box out into Trio Eliapo of various animals. Beyond this Lawn you entered a ground for exercise Laid out in tho form of a circus ornamented with Well trimmed Box and other shrubs and fenced with a Wall covered Box. On the outside of tho Wall was a Meadow and beyond Wero other Meadows Fields and thickets. Opposite the portico Sto cd a Square edifice which encompassed a Small area of Spineo shaded four plane Trees with a Fountain in the midst refreshing the surrounding Veril Uro. This apartment consisted of a bedchamber and dining room. A second portico locked out upon this Small area. Another room situated tho nearest plane tree enjoyed constant greenness and Shade. In tho same building were , porticoes Baths and rooms for playing different games. The sides of Ono room Wero encrusted half Way with carved Marble thence to Trio ceiling branches of Trees Wero painted with Birds intermixed with the foliage. In front of these buildings Anil porticos was a spacious circus surrounded plane Trees covered with Ivy. Between those Woro planted Box and Bay Trees mingling their 3hade. Tho inward circular walks Wero perfumed with roses. A thousand different fantastic shapes were Given to tho Box that Quot bordered the straight and winding alleys that crossed the grounds. At the cod of one of to Ese walks was in al Covo of White Marble shaded with vines and supported four pillars. A Fountain hero emptied itself into a Marble Basin contrived with so much Art As to to always full without overflowing. Sometimes Pliny supped hero with his friends and then the Basin served for a table tho larger vessels being placed about tho margin and tie smaller ones swimming about in the form of Little boaf3 and water bowl. In front of Trio Alcove stood a summerhouse of exquisite Marble with projecting doors which opened into a Green Ino Losurdo. Not to this was a private recess furnished with a Couch Aud shaded a spreading Vine which reached to the top. Here also a Fountain alternately Rose and disappeared. In different parts of Trio walks wore several Marblo seats and throughout Trio whole circus were Small rills refreshing tho grass Aud other plants.
