For several years past it has been my custom to accompany my husband to Cadwallader Creek, a tributary of Bridge River, in Lillooet district, British Columbia. My husband is a miner and prospector, and every year he does assessment work on his claims and prospects there.

EDWIN R. LANE
Only a day in the pine-clad hill, By a swale where the iris grows; The song of a mocker echoing shrill, And the scent of a sweet wild rose. Then it’s back to the office, desk and pen, From nature’s wilds to the haunts of men, To the Weary task at the books, and then The next day’s dawn, and the same again, Adios, to the dark deep cañon.

Once I heard one farm boy say to another, “Come and see my two calves. I’m going to keep them till they’re two-year-old steers, and then sell them and go to the Columbian Exposition on the money. They’ll bring fifty dollars by that time.” “But I’ve got a colt that’ll bring seventy-five by that time,” rejoined his companion, triumphantly.

If I might glean from all the years The happy ones which most were blest, I’d take a precious time I know And you could cancel all the rest, I’d wander back again I’m sure, Where sunset like before the gloam The old house rang with song and laugh And we were all of us at home.

Enos A. Mills is great because he lives the simple life and does things. He is great because he is self-made. His home is not a gorgeous nor an elaborate one, if you may call a hut a home. But it may be amiss to say that he lives in a hut built of logs, for he does not: the mountains, their gorgeous, their highest peaks are his home.

J. A. McGUIRE
There’s a pile of fun in telling of the bears you didn’t get, But a whole lot more in talking of the big one that you met And defeated in the scrimmage—of the fear lest you should fail, When the chase was on in earnest and the dogs were on the trail. You go through an aspen thicket and perchance you see a sign That’s so fresh your heart goes thumping, and you say, "He's surely mine!

The hotel was small, but in the ghostly light of 10:30 p. m. it resembled a palace. We were dusty and tired from the day’s ride and were mighty glad to welcome this vest-pocket edition of North Dakota hospitality. After a rather reluctant lunch we smoked a pipe or two and wended our dizzy way to the attic where beds were spread on the floor.

In your cañon, aged and gray, Where a streamlet hies away To the winding river: Where the pines, in weird array, Sigh, and whisper, day by day, And the alders quiver. In your cañon, dark and lone, Where the fragrant breezes moan As they pass; Where the violet’s sky-blue head, And the phlox, with lips of red, Dot the grass.

I am sending you herewith photos of two live wild calf elk just as the old cow elk left them and as they remain until the old one comes for them. These calves are only one or two days old but if molested will run like deer. These I found on a trip just completed that I made to get moving pictures and on which I was quite successful.

M. N. BAKER
Ho! for a smell of the fresh, green leaves, When the siren trout-brook calls; Murmuring low as it glides along On its journey, down the falls; A tramp in the woods—no matter how far— A supper of trout, and a good cigar. I’ll leave behind all the business care, And live the life of the free; Not even a voice to call me back, Just the forest old, and me; I’ll drink at the brook, and shout hurray, And list to the echoes answer “aye."

HAMILTON WRIGHT
Often in the Philippines have I seen strange birds. Huge pigeons, as large as barnyard fowl, and heavier, coo to their mates from the lofty summits of giant trees; doves of alluring and brilliant colors, rivaling those of a macaw or pheasant, of golden yellow, red, iridescent green, or of an almost purple tint, fly swiftly through the dense foliage; and, when they had gained the shelter of their hidden resting place, send forth their melancholy plaint.

E. R. BROWN
As the 25th of September drew near, the old sportsmen of the proposed buckhunting party from Palisade to the White River country, Colorado, became very restless and uneasy, while the tenderfeet were excited and expectant. The party, composed of Mr. J. F. Bradshaw, of Denver, C. S. Reed and son, Kenneth, John Bradshaw and son, Clare, and Fd R. Brown, of Palisade, with guns of different styles and calibres, hunting knives, fishing tackle, peach butter and bacon, drove a four-horse team of a light wagon from Palisade to the foot of Old Sleepy Cat, the scene of the deer hunt.

The buffalo do not bellow; they make a gutteral grunt, not unlike that of a hog. I weaned a buffalo calf last spring. He would stand by the gate of the corral making an effort to get out and continually kept up the grunting. I am willing to go on record after being familiar with the habits and traits of the buffalo for forty-one years that they do not bellow.

Of all birdS none find more favor in the public mind than do the game birds. Among game birds the quail is evidently pie-eminent. Perhaps no other bird inhabits as large an area of our country as does the quail or bobwhite. The sportsman who is able to bring a quail to the ground every time his gun cracks is worthy of the name sportsman, for his skill has been tested.

If there is one place of all others where one wants good and appetizing food it is by the camp fire. Physical exertion and exposure on a hunting trip demand an amount of food which would be almost suicidal to a city business man. I well remember the enormous meals that old Bill Andrews and I used to make away with on some of our long hunts.

I have shot more than 1,300 buffaloes in America, and I may say that I know the habits of these animals just as well as any other experienced hunter.

Just a tinge of frost in the air a few nights ago, and I had a slight attack of the hunting fever, the same that always shows up along about September 1st. It has never failed with me, and I reckon all the old timers are about the same. One of the most delightful feelings In the world, to me at least, is to wake up this time of the year, and have to hunt around for more cover, for it has grown chilly during the night sometime, and it is such a relief from the hot stuffy summer weather.

Much has been said of late in Outdoor Life about the woodchuck as a swimmer, some claiming that they can swim, while others claim they can not. I believe it depends on the condition the chuck is in, whether he is fat or poor. I saw a chuck swim the mouth of the English river early in July.

It can never be the same When the summer comes again; Something lost or something chang’d, Something gone beyond our ken. A line upon the forehead, A scar upon the heart; A lack of Time’s bright promise— These come as years depart. And though a future summer Again will wake the flowers, And brook and bird will gossip Throughout the shining hours, The glow of present sunshine, The charm when summer came, The NOW of joyous living Will never be the same.

"Comments on a New Sight" by J. C. Anderson in your August number is my excuse for writing you. When I was a young man (or boy fifteen or sixteen years old) I was quite an enthusastic user of the twenty-two rifle and recognizing the difficulty, both in target practice and in shooting game of the ordinary open sights, I conceived the idea of the crossed hair front sight and made one as per diagram enclosed, using Lyman peep rear sight.
