Colonel Cody ("Buffalo Bill") once
told the following story of ono of his
comrades of the plains known as AVlltl
"A man who nursed a grudge ngnlnst
-Vlld Bill swore to kill him. Ho stood
concealed In a doorway, stepped out
and confronted Bill as tho latter pass
ed and leveled a pistol at his head.
" 'I've got you now, Wild Bill,' hr
said, 'and I'm going to kill you. but
I'll give you one minute to pray!'
"'Well,' said Bill with an easy
smile, 'It does look like tho Jig's up!'
"Suddenly Bill peered over the man's
shoulder and waved a deprecatory
"'Don't hit him, Andy!' he said.
"The man wheeled to protect him

There was no Andy nor any ono else
behind him. and before ho could turn
round again Wild Bill had killed him.
Tho Wild Boar.
Tho wild boar Is a most courageous
animal. The clement of luck counts
for a great deal in pig sticking, as lu
most other forms of sport, and It often
happens that the foremost sportsman
who by dint of hard riding or thanks
to the fastest horso has come up with
the uuarry Is deprived of tho coveted
honor of "first spenr" by a sudden
'Jink" or turn of the pig. The boar.
In spite of his clumsy appearance, Is
not only possessed o? n groat turn of
speed, but Is extraordinarily active. He
will turn and twist like n Iiare, putting
every obstacle In the shape of bushes,
rocKs. water, etc.. iietween iiwisuu
and his pursuers, but all the time mak
ing for the nearest patch of Jungle and
safety. The pace after a pig is fab'ter
than tho best of runs with hounds, but
Is sooner over.
