J. A. McMAHON
The driving back from what was but a few years ago “the Frontier” and the country commonly regarded as “open,” of wild birds and animals, is but one of the accompaniments of a progressive civilization, and, though the utter extinction of many species of birds and some animals is to be regretted and their passing away sympathetically regarded, we must apply our philosophy and accept the fact.

JOSEPHINE MORRIS ROWAN
Just now a profession is much sought by man, Much more so than most academic degrees; The sign of proficiency is an oil can, And desire epidemic to pay the fees. The desiderata most often required, In class number one, machinist or chaffeur, Are goggles, dust, grime, and a curved back; acquired, A record for racing, I also infer.

R. CLARKE FISK
When the Great Wolf’s voice booms out of the dark, Ranging far from across a cold world; When the flickering logs fall and burst into sparks That drift upward and swiftly are whirled To the chill of the blizzard’s breath— The thought comes strong with the wild, weird song, What makes the Big Grays do so?

We are defiant—defiant as Ajax of old when he shook his fist at the lightning and scairt it so bad it’s been on the keen jump ever since. That renegade infant-snatcher, Bud Fisher, has once more hurled the humiliating harpoon of defeat and derision into us and our entire works are howling for revenge.

BEAR AND LION HUNTING IN MEXICO

BEN BURBRIDGE
There is a country on the southwestern border of our Republic which is rarely visited by sportsmen, but which offers excellent opportunities for those who love to hunt big game. Such a country is Mexico. There can be found the jaguar, mountain lion, bear, wild hog and no end of deer and wild turkeys.

COUNT ORLANDO
On February 25, 1908, His Majesty’s Steamship “Comox,” of fully 100 tons’ capacity, carried me off to Harriott Bay, where we landed on the following afternoon. I proceeded at once to Mr. Smith’s (my guide’s) home, in Quathiaski Cove. The mail had not arrived there for several weeks, and Mr. Smith did not know of my coming.

ROSCOE BRUMBAUGH
December days are dark and drear, And gray are winter skies; Around the death-bed of the year The East wind moans and signs. The flowers that bloomed upon the hills And down along the coasts, Making small things of our ills, Are nothing now but ghosts.

The day is ended. Gone the sun That rose so bright this morn; The flying hours their course have run And left the world forlorn. The bird-songs ringing soft and clear Are fled into the past; The flowers that blossomed far and near Have spent their charm at last.

Did you ever have the hunting or fishing fever so badly that your everyday work became a drudge instead of a pleasure? If so, let me offer a good remedy. Lock up your office and “take to the tall timber.” If this does not appeal to you, try something which does, only keep in the fresh air!

A WOMAN TENDERFOOT
It is usually the middle of December before real winter begins in Wyoming. After that, there isn’t much getting about, on the isolated ranches, except on skees. The snow falls to a depth of five or six feet on the level, covering brush, down timber and fences so that outside the forests there are unobstructed trails everywhere for skees, and there is no more exhilarating sport in anybody’s country.

Nests of the Alaska sea gulls, as a rule, are found on the precipitous sides of bold cliffs and barren, rocky islands, that are inaccessible to anything without wings. In the summer it seems as though all the gulls in creation come to Alaska to breed.

“OLYMPUS”
To reach that section of the Olympic Mountains around the headwaters of the Solduck River, one goes from Lake Crescent over the horse trail to the Solduck Hot Springs, which is fifteen miles, and from there an old elk trail follows up the river twelve miles into the mountains proper, and as the trail for the entire distance is through a dense evergreen forest, the trip becomes one of monotony when one tires of the beauty of the woods and its intense stillness.

S. A. WHITE
O’erweighting the lean branch it sags and sways, This minstrel-home of four short months ago; Though then warm-bathed in sun-steeped summer days, ’Tis now half-filled with desolating snow. Half-filled!—’Tis not the half thus filled that tells My heart how sad life’s woven story goes, But in the empty half the aching dwells Tenfold more deep than that which haunts the snows.

The first time I ever saw an Indian medicine man was thirty-five years ago and the incident is almost as fresh and vivid in my memory as if it occurred only yesterday. I was one of a party of schoolboys on a hunting trip in Colorado Territory. We were on the plains somewhere between Julesburg and Fort Morgan.

DR. HUGO ERICHSEN
Primeval man, himself little better than the beasts of the forest, was probably extremely cruel toward the snarling creature, half wolf half canine, that gradually came to be known as a dog. But with our advance in civilization, our ideas with reference to this animal and other mammals underwent a complete change and our treatment of them became correspondingly humane.

Washington is going through the same old experience again this year with the game law business. A lot of fellows want the laws changed so the Governor can appoint a state game warden and deputies, which would certainly be a beautiful political machine for the party in power and enable the governor to pay a lot of political debts at the expense of sportsmen who pay for shooting licenses that would in turn be paid out as salary to political game wardens, who, of course, wouldn’t care a whoop whether any game was killed or not so long as their salary went merrily on.

A Change in the Standard of Rifle Boring

Townsend Whelen
For the past seven years it has been well known to all intelligent riflemen as well as to the Ordnance Department of our army and to most foreign nations that with smokeless powder high velocity rifles there must be a perfectly gas-tight fit between bullet and bore before firing if it is desired to avoid inaccuracies due to incorrect centering of the bullet in the bore, and gascutting, that form of barrel erosion which so quickly destroys the accuracy of the best barrels.

Ask the average man, even nine out of ten readers of this magazine, “What is the path of a bullet?” and he will most likely answer, in substance, “Why, a curved line from the muzzle of the gun to what it hits.” By this he means a path that we can very well represent to the eye by a bent trout rod—that is, an even or steady curve— to use non-technical terms—all in the same vertical plane.

H. C. Hilliard, Reynolds, N. Dak.—Is the action of the 1893 model Marlin as strong and reliable as that of the model 1894 Winchester? Is the .25-36-117 a very accurate cartridge, and what is its accurate range? Do you think there would be any practical difference between a carbine of the above caliber and that of the regular rifle with the 26" barrel as to range and accuracy?

M. Lesieur, Paris, France: I saw in your October number, the answer of Mr. John W. Swift, Los Angeles, regarding the possibility of withholding empty shells for the .351 cal. Winchester rifle. I do not see why the American cartridge manufacturers refuse to sell empties for this rifle, when they send those shells perfectly empty to France, where there is a “gun powder monopoly,” which does not allow the import of foreign powders.

I am sending you enclosed a sketch of a knife that is used very much in Australia. I have one that I have been using for the past five years, and wish for nothing better for skinning is 6 inches. The steel is thin and pliable like spring steel, which I find is far more practicable than the heavy, thick, bayonet-like hunting knives that are generally to be found in the hardware stores carrying sportsmen’s goods.

Concerning the article in November Outdoor Life about “fake” stories published by newspapers, will an old newspaperman be allowed to make a few remarks? As usual the poor devil of a reporter and the worse be-deviled editor comes in for what is in no way his fault.

In reply to Paul G. Ward’s article on snake-bite treatment, I wish to say, “good,” except, better be careful of strychnia; taking 1-60 gr. every twenty minutes until four are taken, as in some cases with valvular disease of heart, may result fatally, through over-stimulation.

I wish to ask through Outdoor Life, for the experience of some who have built blinds for duck shooting on an open lake. We have a lake that is about six miles long and two wide, with but very few rushes in, and only on the edge can those be found. The ducks and geese are very plentiful here (Redfield, S.D.), on their spring and fall flights, but always fly the center of the lake.

In your November number there appears an article by Brent Altsheler in regard to the shedding of the horns of prong-horned antelope. There seems to be a great many people, even old hunters in the West, who are not sure the antelope ever shed their horns, and they point to the fact that the old cast-offs are never found lying around as those of elk and deer are, and that they never saw a full-grown male antelope without horns.
