MeOnuslnnd, the public representative lor Saskatchewan. : > > : > : : > : > > A i ' PROFESSIONAL CARDS JOK SMITH has been the population at Castle Mountain, Alberta, ever since the rest of the population moved out with C. I'. R. con-stnntion in the early eighties of tl:e last century. He makes his living Inhuming, trapping and prospecting. Three winters ago, bothered by the depredations of a wolverine he set traps with a cunning which was partly natural and partly acquired, the result being that he caught a lusty young but somewhat Incautious wolverine. Joe, who has found that live animals of the wild often brought more money from the government officials at the (oologlcal gardens In Banff, twenty miles away, than the dead ones did from the fur dealers, decided to take hie prize to the govern, meet park. So, after painful advenv turee he boied the muscular young fury and delivered it before the superintendent of the park. He was greeted with warm words of commendation, for the park had cow a live wolverine In its cages. The fact that the animal had broken a front leg did not mitigate at mil a grains: the price Joe asked. Joe pat his catch In the strongly wired e&|�, took his money and went home. , The wolverine sulk�d and licked sis paw. He snarled and growled and glowered at the keeper, who strove hard to-win his liking with fancy foods. Two weeks passed, the broken bones of the foreleg knit-but crookedly, the limb Baring outward. The wolverine was so far advanced Id captivity that he deigned to eat the food given him. but he always waited until after dark to do so. During the day he crouched and .gloomed. With good food, and the jloss; of pain from his leg he regained I his strength and put on flesh. His |cagv, strong, galvanized Irpu wire ja one-Inch mesh, was floored wiih ! concrete, and had proven �uSlclent to I hold grey wolves, half-grown bears. ;and full-gTown badgers. He was eon-jsidered located for life. But one morning there was excitement. The :keeper found the cage empty., and In the wire, three feet up from the ground, a neat hole, the stiff wires thrust outward as though an eight-inch shell has passed through. On the ground was the broken half of a tusk, showing that the animal had bitten and torn at .he wires until he had it broken enough to force himself through. This was in the fall. That winter a trapper was camped on the head-, waters of the Kootenny. near the j point where the Banff-Windermere ! motor trail crosses the Kootenay River. He had a snug, mud-roofed cabin of massive logs, and he had plenty of food. Along about Christmas time he decided he would trail out to Goldes" for the Christmas holidays, so he locked his place and started with his dog an-d such furs as he had caught. He was a careful trapper, and be left a small ventilation door, eight by ten inches, open. This door was cut through the second log of his cabin. He knew that no pack-rata would come in because a weasel had taken up its abode in a itump nearby and did most of his hunting in and around the building. A week later he returned, pleased with his triD and pleased to get back He opened uis door aDd stood aghast. The bacon was down from'its nail on 'the wall and little was left but tt.i string, his flou: sacks were ripptV open and the contents scattered t>ve"y j where, his sugar and tea and eof'.Vf were mixed in an awful mess on ilu floor. His dog r.rowled with brist-| ling mane, and then dashed under , the bed. There came the souml of !9narls and worrying*, and than there j rolled from beneath the plane of rest '.a furry bundle which snapped. It j was the dog nnd a wolverine, a fat ; wolverine, who fought with vigor, j The trapper, at an opportune moment ; crunched its skull with the hack of ian axe. and the badly torn canine limped away La treat his jagged wounds. Investigation by the man showed that the appetite of the wolverine had caused its downfall. Lean and hungry it 'must have come prowling around the house and found the ventilation hole through which It crawled. Then it found food. Now a wolverine has another name, and it is as commonly known by that as by its real title. This name is 'glutton,* and whenever possible it lives up to it. That is what this animal did. It ate so much that it could cot'get back through the bole and had curled up to sleep off Its satiety and size beneath tho bed. Before this happened the white man came back. Lika many another creature in higher walks of life its carnal appetite had been the cause of its de;ith. The trapper turned it over, its blood-stained jaws snarled in death, one long fang showing broken and ragged. Its right forepaw flared outward where it had been ill-knit after a fracture, L. V. K.
