On the Britisb Wertern Front--On thd railway in no man'u land. BMwy, well-brushed ridge Just north ot the Ice Rlvev ilie .big tom-Iynx lay in the snow, ''keurly, frightened, and .In pain. A y'atr^og* object clung grimly and I '� cruelly to his foreleg and bad stayed there' �ver since be had leaped at a "i'Adead partridge early that morning. 'J vTwo miles away In the sunllsht a big moose an(^ three cows bjTOwied tn placid quiet. On the ice ' of ths'Kootonay River, a mile or two further away, a coyote had just run tq eai'lh and killed a rabbit which the\lynx had unconsciously jumped , ' a& beur before he had spied tbie dead i; liartridge. Tb� white spanse of a t�tver-mtde lalce was marred in a �tnUfht ItiM wbere th�:laat band of ^lik^-tall d��f bad gone loutb to the �u^^ open portions of tba Talley to igpeiii (be wtoter. ^'Teo miles to the north the taint wbtiUe ot the transcantinenui C.P.R. 'tTfi^ whistled as It rushed westward down the i(rade from Field, B.Gh to-W��J Leanchpll; and in' the faDea, '.tntKled timbers the pine' marten ,l^d minit toolced eagerly tor rabbits |>j^d sPTUoe' partridge, keeping over Heeii and apprehensive watch for the anPrqttcb of the dread wolvertuo.  i^^he tom-lynx had gone i out that ^orpiiig, einpty of Biomach but full 0(4 hope.

Lifting his head, with twitch, ing ears, he tasted that scent again, olefactorially,, and' then followed eagerly ..uii the wind. It promised unknown but very deslrab!b things. At the bole ot a great tree he saw a little litter, flit broken sticks fencing oft approach on ail sides but one to a tender young partridge, dead but toothsome. The captivating odor was more powerful, too. It even blunted the natural caution ot the lynx! He leaped hungrily, and Uis sharp teeth wnslied on bone and flesh and feathers just as the sieel jaws of an anise-scented trap clamped with paralyzing force on the furry foreleg of the animal. Since then he had toifed and snarled and struggled in fear and ^sin and anger, and was now lying In e\bau.stion and fatalistic QUiet; . He hear*.th'e crackle ot brushy,the crunch of, fnqwsboes. A man in warm wlntdr olqthlng burst through the intorvening^bushes, and whooped gladly ak he raised a heavy clvib he carried and moved swiftly down on the titleen dollar bide h!s trap had caught. The big lyn.x reared to his full height and was almost on a level with the mBR'� eyes when the club dropivcd onhls skull and ho kney u6 more. , Trappersi always try to get, the Bklng Without- breaklufe them,: U means a better price.
