A GRAY WOLF TAMbD.
Ono of Mm Hiitngo Hired nf the Itocky
Mountain Mode a Dumettlo I'uU
A gray haired, eccentric looklug man,
known a ''Unelo Davy," recently entered
Tho llepnlillcan olllco In couixiuy with his
pet wolf Jink, n hi mostor called him, I
a fluo nirlinoii of tho gray wolf, and weighs
a llttlo moro than fifty pounds, I six months
old. ha tho sharp noso peculiar to that ani
mal, and i-arrie. his long, bushy tall hanging
In a graceful curve, Tho thick, light gray
hair, evenly illttrlbutod over his finely
formed, fat body, gave him much tho ap
liearnneo nf a well kept jwt dog.
HI action uro llko thoso of a cur pup
wIioho neitialntanco with (wllto tocloty It
rather limited. Undo Davy gavo his his
tory Jack was found by hit owner In
Middle Park. Undo Davy and hi family
were camping In tho jwirk, and, having occa
sion to go Homo dlstanco from camp ono
bright afternoon, ho wa riding along on ono
of tiioiMi tcnt animal, a burro, and accom
panied by a groy hound. Suddenly ho wa
startled by tho savago yelp of a wolf and a
cry of Kiln from his jiet groyhound.
Urging his burro to tho sccno, nnd for
getting that ho uaa unarmed, Undo Davy
found Ills dog In n serious position. An old
ho wolf, with her four cubs huddling cloeoly
under her, attacked tho hound with her foro
paws, striking him two sovoro blows on tho
head, and laying htm out on the ground. In
stantly tho wild beast caught tho side of tho
hound In her teeth and toro a pioco of flesh
from tho xxr cnulno.
Tho wolf then mado an attack upon tho
man, nnd ns slio leaped toward him tho
frightened burro shied nnd Undo Davy
struck tho attacking beast with his stiff
brimmed hat, Tho blow was not of Itself
Injurious, but tho Mtiildcuucss with which
It was dealt so astonished tho wolf that
sho ran away. Undo Davy quickly nji
pronrlated ono of tho cubs, which was
.jrobably two weeks old, and very hastily
'otreatcd. Tho llttlo itrangcr wa taken
In at tho camp ami tenderly mused
until ho had grown to sulllclent ago
to comprehend Ids surroundings and
associate!. Then tho process of Instruc
tion was begun, and ho has shown himself
an apt pupil In acquiring such tricks oh dogs
aro taught. Kindness has been tho ruling
rod, and Jack, whllo ho has learned many
things, has nover developed tho least dlsjiosi
tion to Iw ugly or savago. IIo icsesscs nono
of tho wicked tricks known to hi kind, and
his training has disputed tho assertion that
a gray wolf cannot bocoino a domesticated
Whllo In tho ofllco his master put him
through a courso of porformancco which
wcro surprising. IIo would Ho down, roll
over, sit up, tnko off his master's hat, nnd,
funniest of all, would leap up, hug Undo
Davy with wolfish fervor and mischievously
tako off tho old gentleman's sK-ctacles.
Jack Is a great jwt, and his master would
not part with him. IIo has liecn offered
(200 for tho animal, and says ho would uot
tako $00 for him. Every motion of Jack's
is watched with smiling Interest by Undo
Davy, who rcganls him as a wondrous treas
uro and a prodigy of Intelligence. Denver
