Chicago News. DOG CAUGHT BURNING FUSE ricked t Sliest wf DruaHt mm4 CTaaeed Masse Ttraik the Weeds. That one's best friend Is at times l.kely to be his ruination Is no better exemplified than ia my own case, wherein, while hunt ing in BrKlah Columbia, with bo other companion than my faithful dog. I came nearer to losing my life than ever before I was la Mas with seme gf my friends near ths little tows of Movie and on the shore of the lake of the sunt name. One seldom finds so perfect a spot for all kinds of wild game and at the same time the waters are Inhabited by the gamest fish that ever angler trolled for. One brlgnt afternoon, with my dog. I went some distance la a small Indian ca noe and anchored at a point where Instinct told me schools of pickerel might gather. I threw out two lines and. picking up the anchor, began to troll up and down ths little bayoa. but without any startling re sults. 1 was convinced there were plenty of fish m this part of the lake aad could not understand why they did not connect with my lines. Soon patience ceased to be a virtue, sty canine com pen ion, always with bis eye oa the jobber." seemed tired also ot watching the corks riding the small waves, but never disappearing quickly, as the true fishermaa likes to have them fade out of view. I hauled la my lines and rowed the canoe back te the camp. II would be more than aa hour before the other members of the camping party would return and I much disliked to quit for the afternoon without even a single trophy, so 1 hit opoa another and entirely different plan. J decided te fores things. 1 had often heard cf exploding sticks of dynamite tn the water as a means of catch. teg large quantities of fish in a short time, and no sooner had the Idea recurred to me than I was off for the town te equip my self with enough dynamite for the experi ment. I secured several large sticks and hastened back to the canoe to begin oper ations. Te each stick of the explosive was 1 attached a long fuse, so constructed that one could drop the dynamite twenty orj thirty feet Into the water, light the fuse aad the fire would cre-p down through a! powder-filled tube throu-h the water to the stick of dynamite at the bottom. My first experiment 1 decided te conduct from the shore, so that I could have a chance te run behl&d a tki bowlder after lighting the fuse to esoapn Injury. Bo I tied the shore end uf the fans te a stake, lighted it and threw the tlck of dynamite aa far Into ths water tjt the fuse would permit. So soor.er had I throws It thaa my dog. true ts aa old habit, leaped tnte the water and swam te the point where the stkk ot explosive sank out 4 sirkt. I wns almost stricken with frig-ht. There was but one course, and that to retreat. I ran like a rabbit, and. gating backward, saw my spaniel running toward me with the fuse ia Us mouth aad dragguid the stick of dynamite, little more than a man's length tram where be held the fuse la 1.1a teeth. The fuse was burning with great rapid ly, the dog Insisted on keeping up with me and a terrible explosion was Imminent- Fud denly. with great presence rtf mind I picked up a stick of wood and threw It toward the lake in the hope that tiae dog would drop the fuse and dynamite aad gi after ths wood. Sure enough, this ts Just what bs did. but the moment he drtpd the fuse and Just as he was headed for the lake the dynamite exploded the moment he passed ever It aad blew the poor arO mal Into stoma. I was throws violently to the ground by the force of ths explosion and was all hut killed. I believe I nave never fully re cevered from the shock.-Chit age Tribune. of a Modern Ktlepaaaeal. xne eloping couple were la quest magistrate.
