Stagg hus returned from his homestead, having completed his time He tells a thrilling story of an experience with mountain iions. Mr. Stagg says: On Boundary Lino Ranch, fifty miles south of Lethbrldge, 35 miles east of the Rockies, on a cold dark February night. I was all alone, no house doacT than a mile. The size o� my ranch house is 14x28. I have two rooms 14x14, having four windows, two on the east and two on the west side, and only two and a half feet from the ground; have two outside doors, one near centre on east side, and one on south side. During the day of February 4th I had passed' out of the house altogether through the east door; the windows 'were partly .covered with ice. The ground ^was. covered.with snow four to five inches deep, in many places as many feet; I was reading the History of Cortez, the discoverer of Mexico, the chapter in regard to the battle of dark and dismal night. A few days 'before I had read the great hunts of Gengls Khan. I liad come to the lines in the chapter Dark and Dismal night that read, "No pen can describe the tumult of this 'Wild war, the yell of countless thousands oi: assailants, the clang of their trumpets, gongs and di'ums, 'the clash of arras, the rattle of musketry, and the war o'f artillery presented a, scene which had never before found a parallel In the new world.' This was at 8..90 p.m. I heard footsteps in the creaking snow approaching my house from the southwest. It sounded like the trampling of several horses. I thought ic surely must be a band of horses coming u^ from the prairie for shelter, so I didn't get up to look out, and I might say I was lucky I didn't open the door. After tramping around the Jiouse . about tivice something struck my windoWj frcm which I was sitting only three feet away. It sounded noti much louder than a smaU particle of snow, which I had; often heard strike the window when the' wind blew. ,My lamp 'was sitting on a.table about the same distance from the window. To my utter surprise as 1 .turned to see what the noise meant, I beheld the ghastly face of, a mountain � lion or cougar right against the glass. The light seemed to blind iilm aa,he.had, his'eyes half shuf. I looked!, hlms; straight,in;-the eye for about, half a minute as I had-often heard It was the best thing to do while so closely ciuartered with a wild animal. He then jumped down, and I got up and reached for my/gun which was lying on the sofa just a little to the left of the same window. ' ,; I remembered I had unloaded, the: gun .thsinight befoi-e. The gun'had never been unloaded for a month tie-fore this. I quickly reloaded '"and stepped to the centre^ of .the room; raising the guu' ready to, fire.. I-;,kept; turning' my gun to" the east window and' then to the west, just as ! "w^uld-' hear the footsteps of the' two, anim-,, als-; and was waiting to hear: a win-; dow plunged through , any time-'  i-I didn't intend to shoot until i heard the glass break and couid see the animal, for I knew as there were two It wouldn't do to just wound one, as certain death would .be almost sure to follow. I stood in this position ior one hour. (They would walk around the house, then walk from one doorstep to the other and sit down for a while, but they always stayed mostly at the east door. At &.30 they left, but next morning I found they had only gone two hundred yards away before returning the second time. You could see wuer�% they had prowled in 'the snow bacic and wrth ahQut the same distance north and west of the house.' After 9.30, the noise ceasing, I decided they had given up the attempt. Then I thought too if they did return If my lamp was blown ouit they probably would pass on, so I decided to go to bed, but thtoking again if I.should blow out the lamp, if they did return and break through I could only see their eyes to shoot at, I decided to pull down the shades and turn the lainp low, and retired. I laid do'wn for- almost an hour but coulUn t sleep soundly. I de'cided it would be better to get up and dress, for It they did return I might be compoUed to run outi-ln the cold. I hadn't no more .than put my feet on the floor until I heard their footsteps creaking in the snow, approaching the house from the northeast corner this time. Then I didn't dress; I grabbed my gun which was lying on the Hoor beside the bed and got ray former position in my night-shirt. This time they were more desperate than hefore; they would -prowl around the house, rear upon the corners and gnaw with their teeth.,' Every time they reared agaliist the corners the whole house would shake; then they would paw against the door. It sounded like a person strlkln^the door with a rock. One time I thought sure the flght was on. One reared against the 'window to which I -was standing closest with a great force. It must have struck the centre of the window frame, otherwise It would sure have come through. I had to stand at their last return an hour and,a half with raised -gun, I would havei opened the door to fire but thought again if they should hear me turn the knob they both would probably jump against the door and overpower me, so If 1 did have time to shoot I would, probably only have time to vi'.ound one, while the other would also attack me. At 12 o'clock they left. They didn't go any farther east than two hundred yards from my house, for the. tracks showed plainly the'ir return west towards Chief mountain. After leaving the last 'time I spent the remainder of the night In thafjattic;, The'inext morning I measured their tracks, which were eight inches In the snow. From the footprints- on the ground to where the cougar or lion p'rlnts were left 'On, the window measured seven feet Ave. inches. �In. conclusion I will say that Hons or cougars will not maVi us abandon this,-the best wheat landm the world in ith^imost.southern ot Sunny Southern Alberta. I might say the prowling, -'wolf, cunning coyotes and occa-s'ioijal -visits of cugara or lions and .oth,er-.i vicious animals that they might as, well;;meet and bid each other adieu forever to this lovely land they havfr had;access. to, for so Ipng a time;.for we .homesteaders of the 'Mclntyre lease are here to stay.
