who boldly declare that the chief of

Biiowshoes and the s-ick of mail swung
over his nhouldor , ho remarked , "A
heavy suow storm is approaching and
I must make huato or I'll ' lose the
way. " The course taken from Hailey
to Bullion by anuwdhnea is over the
mountains , and the well worn trail is
easily followed except during or just
after a storm , whun fresh snow oblit
erates the tracks made by the shoes.
Honninirhouao had gone as far a

Upon reaching tbo hiithost point no

give up horn exhnu ) ion and lay down
to rest , the dismal howl of n wolf waS
borne to his car. Roused by thin
ominous sound , fear leant strength to
his weary inu elt-p , and ho started
along the ridge ho know not whith

and from the distinctness of tin

ocentetl him and were on hi * trail ,

that thn gatnu w.u up , thai his pur

about to halt and face thenla wolf
sprang upon the heel of his HIIOW-
