AFTER MOOSE IN THE CASSIAR DISTRICT, B. C.

J. E. MOORE
As stated in my former article in Outdoor Life.* Our going into the Cassiar district was solely for the purpose of securing sheep and moose. Our trip into the sheep country had been very pleasant, and, we considered, very successful. Although we had not secured the full limit of our allowance we were perfectly satisfied with our kill, and it was but natural now for our minds to turn to the next proposition, that of securing moose.

Only in folklore and legend will the Indian—the Red Man of the plains—be known to the next generation; his day of romance is sadly over and one mighty stride towards his civilization is the giving family names to the 30,000 survivors of the race—a task which Dr. Charles A. Eastman of Amherst, Mass., has nearly completed.

FICTION VS. NATURAL HISTORY

BRENT ALTSHELER
If truly hunters and sportsmen permit unprotestingly such writers as W. G. Fitz-Gerald and Frank G. Carpenter to invest the natural history of large carnivora with lurid stories of fabulous man-eaters of Central and East Africa, standard authors who entertain a wholesome respect for sober truth like Selous, Baillie-Grohman, Phillipps-Wolley, Roosevelt and Schillings, should close their ink-wells and retire as authorities on big game and their habits.

U.; had twelve starters, eight finishing. Was over the old burro trail, seven miles long, with an ascent of nearly one mile.

This wonderful antediluvian-looking animal is one of the wonders of the big game in Africa, and no one will ever forget the impression this animal makes on one when first seen out hunting. I was immensely excited when I first saw an elephant in India while out after sambhu one day, but I was quite flabbergasted when I saw my first rhino in Africa; what astonished me most was the agility of this animal and the speed it could get up in a charge.

American history does not record a more thrilling battle than the fall of the “Alamo,” and words cannot depict the scenes that were enacted inside its sombre and weather-beaten walls. The “Alamo” was first established by the Franciscan friars in 1718 and they laid its corner stone in 1745.

FREDA AGATZ
The season mellows, the year grows old, The brooklet glides with a gentler purling, The wood has a carpet of red and gold, (For Winter is coming, and earth grows cold) That the vagrant winds set whirling. There’s rollicking life in the frosty air, Tho’ sunbeams gleam with a paler glory; The stir underfoot is everywhere, Robins are twittering here and there, In trees which are gaunt and hoary.

Sunday afternoon in Salt Lick. The train had come and gone. The long-hooted, heavily-spurred contingent that had trooped in from the wild and weedy for their weekly budget of mail, now headed, with singleness of purpose, for the shanty-saloon across the way,—a lone sentry box in an oasis of sand, cacti, and discarded cans.

JUNE DAVIES
The night wind shivers through a tuft of withered grass Where drifts the desert’s sea of shifting sand. A rim of lurid clouds, wind-torn and desolate, Marks low the boundary line 'twixt sky and land. A coyote slinking by with noiseless, stealthy tread, Stops near a sunken heap of crumbling stones, To scent the feast, writ there in silent eloquence— A glistening human skull and scattered bones.

On May 20th last, I left the Fraser River and started up a tributary with two Indians. The stream that we followed was a river in size, and for a day and a half we went up what was practically a canon with great towering mountains on each side, in places nearly perpendicular, the tops of which were covered with snow.

Practically all persons who have had the pleasure of observing the grizzly bear in captivity agree that he is more or less comical in his ways, while those investigators who have, pursued him into his natural haunts (and have been able to testify afterwards), say that he is a perfect “cutup.”

Oh, for a friend who will watch with me the changing color of winter skies, the glamour of August noons, the yellow glow of autumnal sunsets and the fading light on tawny hills where murmuring herds travel homeward half asleep with the languid melody of cricket choirs; one who will turn deaf ear to the twang of harps in banquet halls to listen to the laugh of children in shady groves, the pipe of killdeers by lazy streams, the trickle of hidden fountains in rocky ledges, the chatter of anxious parent birds o’er hungry brood, the whispered grief of belated butterflies in dying flowers, the sweep of pent-up rain on desert lands and the echo of thunder storms where granite pillars prop the everlasting hills against the sky!

Several summers ago I was invited to join a party for a few weeks’ recreation up on one of the spurs of the Cascade range of mountains. As my best lady was to be included also I gladly accepted the invitation, and as soon as a wagon and team could be procured and loaded with the necessary provisions, etc., we were soon going up the mountain on the long, winding grade, gradually ascending until we reached the summit of the divide that told us that we were over 5,000 feet above the level of the sea and nearly 3,500 feet above the little city of Ashland, Oregon, that we had left behind us that morning.

P. A. C., Alluwee, Okla.—I bought a pointer pup recently said to be full-blooded and eligible to registration, but have since learned that his sire is ⅛-part spaniel. I desire your opinion as to utility of such a mixture as a bird dog. The pup is a beauty and the most intelligent dog of his age I have ever handled and is already making pretty points; has typical pointer shape.

The principal factors in reducing the life of the modern high velocity rifle barrel are gas-cuttting, metal jackets and smokeless powder. My experience with the Government rifle has proved conclusively that when super-caliber bullets are used, gascutting becomes almost entirely eliminated and ceases to be a factor in the wear of the barrel.

Concerning that nine-lived question, “What size gun shall I use?” let us consider the matter from a point a bit apart from guns; as a side-light often reveals surprising features. I once shot a squirrel with a .40-70 Winchester; the bullet disemboweled him, but without materially injuring any of the abdominal organs, so simply ripped him open.

Will you please inform me of the difference between the 1903 and the 1906 model Government cartridges? In the fall of 1906 I wrote to the commander of the Frankfort Arsenal about the 1903 model cartridges, suggesting that he try and have them changed by making the neck longer even though the powder chamber must be made shorter, so as to permit of a wad being placed between the powder and bullet to prevent gas escaping ahead of the bullet.

I am an advocate of the slow-twist bores, such as .32-40 and .38-55, and hope some time that a discussion among the cranks of the various calibers and twists will appear. I cannot understand the great preference existing with hunters to use the .30-30, .25-35 and .303 calibers, as reduced charges are not nearly so satisfactory in these rifles as in the .32-40.

In 1904 I purchased the .33, and the fact I have used it exclusively ever since is perhaps the best expression of my opinion of this caliber.
