I Out, in the middle of the prairie, it . has l;oen rcpcatL' ai-e half-a-do'.ot.' or more white settlers at Grande )Piairio. each of whom has small bunch of cattle. N'otlving is One day we ran across a lone t moose-hunter camped on tlM trail. He volunteered to g;uide us to his main camp, and leaving t'he athers Esettlad for the night, Michel and I I rode with him, the hunter's name was Hoolyum {WillianO. Ho �-as a little olT in his calculations; instead of tihree miles as h� said, it waa more like nine to tho camp, rinally we got there and Hoolyum introduc-txd'us to his tepee and bis remarkably pretty v ife. The hunters had bad t;ood luck, and four moose bod b�en killed already. Boolyuia's tepee had been reinforced with aeveral breadths to make room for a great rack down the middle, loaded wittb thin strips ot moose m�at smoking over the firo rack of moose meat above it. Wo all laid down tin a row with our feet towards it. first the seven small chil -dren. then the mother and father, jthon Jlrichel and 1. They were short I of blankets and Michel and I shared .to [the same bed. In the night a furious storm came up and .the rain streamed into the gaping tepea. We were diianched by morning but quickly dried ourselves before the great fire built by Mrs. Pierre. POliCE COUPE PRAIRIE, la a l^eautiful little tract containing about two hundred sqitare miles. Both the OTP. and the 43.N.E. sur-\'ey parties have drawn lines across it on tt^ way to the Pine pass. It Was badly burned over lasit summer and it will Ije .wvoral .seasons before the gro-s.s recovers, as the sod has betin burned right olf ir^ places. Before the Crc I was told the grass was knee high in Juno. It is without doubt an extraordinai'ily favored little district. All tiie streams run in deep coulees. They aiv apt to dry up at the end of tho season. One day we wore quietly trotting ovH-r tho tender grass which had sprung up since the fire, we saw a big brown bear quietly browsing in a little popular blufl. Wo only had one twenty-two rifle in the party �/itd tiiat had been damaged tlie day before by one of tlie horses .stepping on it. Bruin was not more tlinn twenty five yards from us. lie raised his head. quiiHly looked us over niKl went on with his meal. Mitchel cro|>t up clo.n with a s-crie.s of wild yells the four of us bore down on hiiu and 'brulti stayed not on tlie order of his ; going, but took to the prairie. It j was .a glorious chase. I had no idea a bear could travel so Ttey cro.ear tried all the tricks he knew, tie climbed trees, tie hid himself in the thickest uui�rgrowth, he dashed from cover to cover, but all to no avail.- Finally he gave up and burying, his head between his paws awaited for us to dispatch him. A bullet in tha brain did it. When we came to skin him we foimd his hide riddled wi'th the tiny bullets. After this we lived on bear, steaks and chops for a week and ^-ery good nisai it is too. The final dash through the woods was very exciting. MicJiel was anxious to get out ;before dark and he sKJl a tremendous pace. I was bringing up ttie roar with old Cy as usual and I had my troubles. Cy hadn't any idea of following tlie trail. He simply made straight for the tail of the horse ahcftd. Wlien his pack hit anything, something had to givfe way. 1 had to keep him up at any cost, for it he lost sight of tho horse ahead he got out of his Ixjarings altogether and travelUxi in a circle. Finally we broke into a regular gal. lop through the gathering darkness and it required sharp work to avoid the branches which swung ouit over tho trail about the level one's haad. We made camp at Spirit river about 8 o'clock and the next day started tn our long journey home. .v.^4l4l�l DRKYING. If you wish dray log or moving of any kind done, call on us.
