noon, our train,
horses, six saddle horses and three
colts, started on the sixty-mile journey
to our proposed camp.
We had traveled but a few miles
north from the village, and into the
timber, when we came to the well
blazed line which marks the southern
boundary of the Lewis and Clark Na
tional Forest, within which Glacier
National Park has recently been cre
ated. Along the well-defined trail we
were continually reminded by the
conspicuous signs posted by the For
est Rangers of the warning to all
campers in regard to fires.
The last day's trip was over a
rough trail, crossing and recrossing
Young's creek, up and down banks so
steep that we would often dismount and lead the
The valley at this point widens out into an
open park of several hundred acres called the
"Big Prairie," which is now fenced and used as a
horse pasture by the forest rangers. At the lower
end of this pasture the river makes a wide de
tour around the vertical bluffs, the trail going
over the top, joining the river again near the con
fluence of the White river and the South Fork.
Here we made our permanent camp in a small
For three days we had heard Marsh tell of his
seventeen 3'ears experience in that part of the
country as guide, trapper and hunter, which made
us all the more keen to try our skill on the game
for which we had made the long journey.
On the morning of October 1st, as soon as It
was light enough to see. Bert and Charles crossed
thA river to look for elk near the lick we had
passed the day before. Heiny. Marsh and I went
up on the mountain back of our camp to look for
goats, while Ben set to work fixing up the camp.
We hunted along the top of the mountain for
a short distance, when presently Marsh called our
attention to what he thought was a goat lying
out on a point of rocks on the west side, and sure
enough- it settled all doubt by getting up and
walking out into plain view. We decided at once
to try for this one. It was necessary to walk
back a mile to a point where we could get down
onto a ledge which we could follow, or half crawl
along back to the place where we had seen the
goat. This ledge was covered with slide rock,
and made walking dangerous, and it was impos
sible to proceed noiselessly, as we would start
rocks to rolling over the edge every few steps.
At length we reached the belt of timber which
hid the goat pasture. Heiny took the right side
of the ridge, and I the left, and we began to move
toward the spot where the goat had been seen.
We had gone but a short distance when I heard
a shot and going in his direction I saw him and
Marsh. Heiny had shot the goat which ran out
near the edge of the cliff and fell, lodging against
the roots of an upturned spruce. It proved to be
an old one with two of its lower teeth missing.
We took the skin, head and part of the meat on
what proved to be a most hazardous trip, as the
west side of the mountain is a series of narrow
Banks of cloud were rising in the west. After
two hours of strenuous walking through the un
derbrush and windfalls, we came out into the
park back of our camp just as it began to storm.
Neither Charles nor Bert were In camp, and on
my part, at least, were the cause of some uneasi
ness, as it was raining and both 'had left camp
with only light sweaters.
In the morning as it was growing light. I gazed
out through the tent-fly to see the mountains
white two-thirds of the way down. A few min
utes later I heard a shot up the river, which I
immediately answered with a couple more.
Shortly after. Bert and Charles were wading
across the" stream to camp. They had shot a
deer within a mile of the camp, and had found a
bunch of elk which they followed until night.
Each was unable to find the other, and both con
sidered it dangerous to try to walk to camp In
the darkness and gathering storm.
The following day was spent hunting through
the river bottoms and lower benches, but without
results, only a few deer being seen.
That evening we decided on a strenuous hunt
work, secured the head and hide and
climbed back to the summit.
Our game supply now consisted of
three deer, three goats and one elk.
Charles decided to stay In the valley
with Marsh until he shot an elk. whilo
the rest of us took a part of the pack
train, loaded on all our game and left
at noon next day for the railroad.
By no means the least interesting
part of this trip was the chance to
view the Lewis and Clark National
Forest, where for ten days we lived
near to Nature, the only evidence of
man's having intruded there being

While we were yet some distance below the
summit, we tied our horses In a sheltered spot
and proceeded on foot. Deer tracks were numer
ous in the fresh, wet snow, and on top of a small
ridge I found the tracks of a band of elk. There
were eight in the bunch, one track showing'
plainly to be that of a bull, and Marsh "allowed"
we had better try for him. The tracks were eas
ily followed, but as they had fed all over the
ridge. It took some time to find in which direction
they were going. Shortly Marsh, who was walk
ing back of me. touched me and pointed out a
yearling which was feeding toward us. We sat
down and watched this one which was soon
Joined by another and another, until six were in
sight. The two yearlings came within sixty feet
before they winded us and turned back. We
could hear the bull scraping his horns on the
brush. He was in the background, out of sight.
We watched them possibly five minutes, when I
saw what I took to be the bull, brushing his head
up and down among the branches of a small pine.
I fired at a point just back of his shoulders. Then
came the one disappointment of the trip, for the
animal proved to be a big cow. The remainder
of the band stood motionless for a quarter of a
minute, then broke into a run down the mountain
We dressed the elk and continued our hunt for
goats. We were crossing deer tracks every few
feet. On coming out Into a little park I found
one track that looked good enough to follow, and
had hardly gone ten rods when I heard him jump
out of bed. He came into an open spot on the
highest point of the ridge, and stood looking at
me over the top of some dwarf cedars. I drew
a bead on his neck and fired, scoring a clean
miss. The second shot hit the mark, and a ten
point black-tail buck was added to the list, and
went a long way toward repairing my feelings
over the elk.
The reunited party had supper together that
evening. Ben put up goat, elk and venison steaks
to order. After the big feed was over and pipes
filled, we sat around the fire In the teepee tent
and planned a further Invasion of the game zone
across Marshall creek. The result was Bert's
hagg ng of the largest goat of the trip, and
Char s getting a blnck-tail buck.
The shooting of Bert's goat was quite a re
markable feat. He and Ben had Just about given
up looking for goats and were standing on the
edge of a cliff, looking down at a trail along the
side of the ledge, when a goat appeared walking
leisurely. The animal was about fifty feet hori
zontally and three hundred feet vertically from
him when he shot, hitting the goat square be
tween the shoulders, killing it Instantly Any
struggle on the part of the animal would have
resulted in his rolling over the cliff, where it
would have been impossible to reach him The

result was the same. Now I don't attend any
church, but on Sunday jump Into my motor car

Geese will live to a great age, and some few
years ago I came across a very venerable goose
(male or female I cannot say) in Westmoreland in
unexpected circumstances. I was walking from
Milnthorpe to Arnsidc and at Ganaside found an
acquaintance sitting on a seashore bench feeding
a pet goose with biscuits steeped in ale. He told
mc that this goose had been in his family for over
40 years and was partial to beer, stout and even
gin. One of the most remarkable records of the
longevity of geese with which I am acquainted is
to be found in an old book entitled "Travels in
Scotland." by the Rev. James Hall, M. A.. London,
two volumes, 1807. On a visit to a Mr. Charles
Grant of Elchies. Stirlingshire, the author was in

after living at the same place for "above SO years."
