IF YOU lived in I Boston, and woke up some fine summer Sunday with a crick in your back, the last thing you’d think of doing would be to call up an osteopath named Dr. Malcolm Johnston. You’d know that Dr. Johnston, who writes “Tweeks and Twiddles” with the doctor part left off his name, has never been within miles of his office on a Saturday or Sunday during the summer.

EVERYTHING WAS arranged. George was to meet me in Portland, Me.; the camp and guides would be ready. All I had to do was to telegraph him, and he would complete the details. “And so,” his letter urged, “I expect a wire from you tomorrow. The whole trip won’t stand you more than fifty bucks, and boy! how those square-tails are hitting.” It sounded swell.

EDITOR Outdoor Life
YOUR ANSWER to J. R.’s Angling Query said that there are times when you can catch shad only on a fly or with a net. Not being a fly-fisherman, I have caught innumerable shad on good-size live minnows, with a short rod. I have found this great sport, as sometimes they will bite very easily and at other times they will strike hard and run.

ARTHUR HAWTHORNE CARHART
THE Indian council deliberated on the fate of my partner and myself. “Ugh!” grunted Dick Washakie, son of the famous Shoshone chief. “Ugh!” I had thought that only stage Indians did that, but there was nothing theatrical about this grim-faced old man, with a black kerchief over his long hair to protect it from the dust.

Killers Are My Job
Hunting Down Mountain Lions Day After Day, a Game Protector Soon Discovers that Few Beasts Are More Savage Than These Big Cats
How to Fool Wise Bass
[no value]
[no value]
A. MONKS
TO ME, there is no sport more satisfying than hunting down and killing a killer. And no other predator of the Northwest is quite so wanton and savage in its slaughter as the cougar, or mountain lion. Not only does wild game, particularly the deer, suffer from the ravages of this feline marauder, but, to my knowledge, the beast will attack a human being.

J. C. BRUNNER
ANY veteran salmon fisherman can understand why we traveled 2,800 miles by automobile to get only three days of Atlantic-salmon fishing on the Gaspé Peninsula of Quebec. But anglers we met thought us just plain dumb when they saw the rods with which we proposed to land these great, silvery jumpers of northern rivers.

JACK O'CONNOR
LET’S say the deer season is over. You’ve had that nice head mounted, and you’ve told for the tenth time how you happened not to get that bigger buck. So you take Old Betsy, your trusty deer rifle, out for the final cleaning. You swab out the barrel with hot water, coat it and all other metal parts with grease, and put it away for those long, dull months of spring and summer.

ALLEN PARSONS
"HEY, pop, here’s the doctor!” A tousled urchin, with ragged knickerbockers unbuckled at the knees and hanging almost to his ankles, had rushed out of the kitchen door of the farmhouse, taken one look at our car, and handed on the glad news. There was the sound of scraping chairs, of hurried feet, and people poured out of the house like marbles out of a bag.

Mosquito Bites and Barked Shins Are Part of the Odd Game to Those Who Love It

HENRY S. BEVERAGE
TAKE a warm, spring night in May or June, add one swarm of mosquitoes, a lantern and two or three flash lights, mix with plenty lights, plenty of muscular exertion, throw in some barked shins, and a dash of profanity for seasoning, and you have a reasonably good recipe for shad fishing along the Maine coast.

PHILIP H. GODSELL
OUTSIDE the windows of the trading post, the northern lights flashed and scintillated in ghostly colors, casting grotesque shadows on the floor. From the dog yard beyond the palisade came the long-drawn, wolfish howl of a husky, followed by another and still another as the dogs lifted their pointed snouts to the heavens, filling the night with unearthly clamor.

THE hunting season was about half over when I made one of my regular visits to the coast country to check waterfowl. With me, went Perry, one of the game protectors for the Kitty Hawk, N. C., area, famous as the birthplace of aviation. We were driving through the Kitty Hawk woods when a gray squirrel ran across the road in front of us.

NYLE F. SMITH
"WHAT do you mean, little hooks catch bigger fish? Small hooks will straighten out under the impact of a five-pounder, and then where are you?”My companion, who had come from the coast for two weeks’ fishing in the High Sierras, knew his trout.

IN A jungle country where most men live in deadly fear of tigers, V. W. Ryves, a planter of Rantau, in the Federated Malay States, chose Blang, a tiger cub, to raise as a house pet. Though descended from man-eating stock, Blang roamed through the planter’s bungalow and grounds with perfect freedom, and, except for occasional distracting bits of mischief, with perfect deportment.

TWO coming-out parties by Winchester. Both for new .22’s, though one of them isn’t called that. The first newcomer is the Model 72, the other the Bee .218. I don’t know it to be a fact, but, in appearances, the Model 72 originated with one of those good Model 69 Winchesters which got out of the corral and played around with some of the opposition’s tubular-magazine rifles.

DOES heavy stocking mean good trout fishing? No, unless the stream either is naturally capable of supporting the additional trout, or, if not, it has first been prepared to receive them. Trout require ample food and sufficient and suitable hiding places, or they starve.

RAY BERGMAN
NEARLY every angler has some pet notion concerning the effect of the weather on fishing. Some believe that the direction of the wind is all-important. Some consider dark days the luckier, while others are just as strong for sunshine. Many insist that the phases of the moon have a direct bearing on the actions of fish and readily quote you many illustrations to back up their belief.

WHEN fishing a stream lined with overhanging underbrush, try casting the hook with a springy willow. Hold the willow in right hand, rod in left. A ring, attached to the line, slides over the willow. Catch tip of the willow between the left thumb and forefinger and bring to an arch, then let go, and your line Will shoot out.

COURTESY to other fishermen is the sign of real sportsmanship. When you are fishing the shore line of a lake and another boat comes along, you judge the character of the men in it by the way they act. If they deliberately cross in front of you, then you know they either do not understand the etiquette of fishing or else are not sportsmen.

Question: I read an article in our local paper stating that all fish are color-blind. It said, “Fish recognize all colors as different shades of gray.” If it is true that the only thing that makes any difference to the fish is the action of a plug or bait, why all the color variety in our plugs?

FISHING the upper Owens River and its tributary streams and lakes in California is a memorable experience, particularly in the early season. Then nature is in a fickle mood. One minute you may be warmed by a dazzling sun, while the next instant a ragged cloud will be swept down from the snowcapped mountains, to envelop you in a blanket of mist and snow.

THE white, or silver, bass (Roccus chrysops), small cousin of the striped sea bass, is common in the Great Lakes region, but before 1931 was rare in Missouri. In that year, a huge hydroelectric power dam was thrown across the Osage River at Bagnell, Mo., creating a lake 129 miles long, with an area of 95 square miles.

I LIVE all year at one of those lakes placed in a hollow of the hills. My lake freezes over every winter, looking as though it were covered with a clean, white tablecloth of snow. But all the rest of the year it is fringed with pink and white flowers, and vivid with reflected green from the hardwood foliage.

WE ALL have our favorite species of fish, and most of us prefer our own particular method of catching them. Geographical location, seasonal migration, and facilities for fishing all influenced us when we decided on our method of angling, for most of us take our fish where we find them, under the conditions that exist.

AWAY back, the man who killed the most ducks in a day was considered the best duck shot. Nobody now knows who did kill the most ducks in a day or the most in a season. Fred Kimble was one of the best duck shots who ever lived, but, save on rare occasions, he probably did not kill 100 ducks a day.

WILLIAM HARNDEN FOSTER
AN ANCIENT wheeze of a gun-shy generation was that a firearm, even without a lock, stock, or barrel, was still a dangerous weapon. The shooter of today laughs at the old adage, but he handles firearms almost as carefully as he would if he actually believed it.

YOUR clothing should be perfectly comfortable in camp, whether you lounge before the fire, work hard, or play hard. It should protect you from any sort of weather, stand up under hard service, show soiling as little as possible, and dry easily and quickly after a wetting.

WHEN you wish to hit the trail with as light a load as possible, this emergency pack will fill the bill. It is simple to make, and you can’t possibly work out a pack that is lighter. You simply use your blanket for the body of the pack, and a small tent or poncho for the pack straps.

AN EFFECTIVE, improvised food cooler for a hasty camp can be made by fitting a door to a fruit crate, covering it with burlap or other absorbent material, and directing a drip of water over it. Hang on a tree branch in a shady, breezy spot. It will keep perishable food and beverages surprisingly cool.

Question: Last summer I bought a khaki tent. Every time I bring my gas lantern inside, the tent looks like a jack-o’-lantern, and a person outside can see every movement inside. How can I make this tent lightproof?—J. E., New York. Answer: It is very difficult to make any tent opaque enough to screen the motions of its occupants when so strong a light as a gasoline lantern is placed inside.

WILLIAM JACKSON
ALTHOUGH ordinary trailer camping has many advantages over other means of enjoying the outdoors, the pleasure of such a trip is greatly increased when you take a portable boat and an outboard motor, so you can explore waterways along your route.

OUTBOARD motors, used as auxiliaries on inboard or sailing craft, enable the owner to overcome the vagaries of weather and the possible failure of the regular motor. When the wind falls light or the regular inboard fails, the trusty outboard motor is virtually certain to get you home.

Question: My 18-ft. canvas-covered canoe is used with an outboard motor. I would like to have it re-covered, and would like to know what weight of canvas to use and what kind of cement is required. Should the keel be taken off and boat re-covered with one piece of canvas?

DO YOU lead a dog’s life? If so, what kind of an existence is it? Do you work like a dog? Just what does it mean if you do? These burning questions on the subject of human and canine toil may not be as politically important as the sticklers about hours and wages and collective bargaining that the A. F. of L. and the C. I. O. fire at capital every time they see the whites of its collective eyes—but they’re a darned sight easier to understand.

It should be remembered when writing him that serious illnesses cannot be treated successfully by a person unable to examine the dog. In such instances, a dependable local veterinarian should be consulted immediately.
