The Comte de Saint Germain one day re

very minutely described the house of the
Roman governor, and said what dishes

That he should be 2,000 years old mid have

"I? Oh, dear, no, Monsieur," can

400 years in Monsieur le Comle's service."

my h.-rse was riinniiig u if in a finish. A
.hill disiam e ahead I saw the dark line of
a 'dried reourse. At this the old man
went, and with a gigantic bound cleared it
and . apied on utldaunlwl. At it went the
ho iinds-some n'-. r, some in and out. As
mv turn enme I s-tendiul mv horse and
st iit him at it with a thotit. He rose rh-ar,
and in a ser ond' flash I saw the rocky
Wittom fur Ik low me. We strnr k with a
slide ill front, a scramble It hiild. and a
tunibliii! tectivery, but H.fely ov r; and

the iiiimo. si lt-w al that had ever charuc
tirizisl hi- dreaded run in, and dismount
in.:, hilly in hand, made his way through
the dogs' and stood Ik fore'thc kangaroo. I
foil rued his example, nrnfe for Ihe first
time enjoye I a struirle with a 'raliic o'd
man." He stood with hie I ,n ii firmly
pressed against the tree, his lu l l up. mid
Ids eves gleaming: he kept I i., short fore
legs moving somewhat after the fashion o
(I nervous Isixi r. and 11s the hounds pie-sni
upon him he would -Itike with one of hi
legs a blow si hard that the hound i:
reached ran a fair chance of never again
resjK.iiding to his huntsman's nidi , for thttt
swift, dean reach would strike him in the
throat as he rose to his leap, and the sharp
( law. tearing through rib and sinew, would
leave a wound so deep and jagged as lo 1m
far beyond the reach of the primitive sur
gery at hand.
During the time that Glentworlh and I
had stood inactive three dog. had Ix-en put
horn du combat, and now i ion Juan, the
pride of the paik, had reached the kanga
roo's throat, and, uiiiuitnlful of the blow
that partly rliscmbow led him, refused to
loosen his hold. Seizing my opportunity 1
rim iu and w ith a tierce blow of my loaded
club, or billy, ilelivi red 011 the head o! the
kangaroo, I dropped him, i-;h the degj
finished him iu short 1 rder.
