Panther..-,.   . ���������  Panther, like bear, are .fairly"plentiful,   but   seldom   sceii   unicss   treed  by  a dog.    Most, are shot in   ,   this  way, and as a rule are  to  be found  Where   there are  sheep.    They       .ire  'Afraid  of man,   and  no person in !he  district lias ever -.been known to- -lave  been     attacked  by one.   Two years  , ago,  on   the,  Glenora  settlement,    at  cue of  the farm bouses, a small  ^liild  was .sitting on  the front steps  with  -when suddenly a panther jump-  ;a dog.  >;l over the'fence, seized' the .dog:. ssnd  made oft' with it;, the 'child' however,  was not; touched.

I   think   the   betting  would  have been fairiy even.  Wolves.  ���������These animals as a rule keep well  back from civilization, but during  the winter months some come down  to the outlying farms. They are very shy and seldom show themselves  but will follow a man, keeping out  of, sight and howling around him.  They are not considered dangerous.  A few years ago Mr. J'.a\lor, of Cowichan Lake, who at the ���������.time,, was:  trapping at the head .of the lake,  when one day visiting! his traps,  heard a wolf howl; he answered it.  The next moment six wolves were on  him. Ho shot two without putting  his .rille to his shoulder, shot.another  clubbed a fourth ' with the butt of  nis g'uii���������the butt was'all chewed to  pieces. The rest .then made off. The  question is, did they know him to be  a maii, or did they think he was a  strangcwolf'.'  last year a band of about thirty  were- seen''on the Cowichan Lake  road, three.of which were shot, but  only one was picked up. There were  three men with rilli-s at the time;  how do you think those wolves would  have behaved supposing there had  been only one -man and he unarmed?  1 should not like to have been in  that .position.  , Mow is it that wolves do not. in-,  crease hi numbers? They do not appear to. They have'-no-enemies- except man", and he kills very few. I  think the reason is this: They suffer  greatly-"from mange, which kills numbers, and. they are their own enemies.  They often get, killed in their lights,  anil also the dogZ. wolf will -;eiit- the  youngoiies if he can lind ' theni. The  sl.o wolf, however, ' docs her best to  hid;.- them.

About adozen of these animals are  yearly brought "to the government office for the bounty.

From  "tbe damage done,  it was quite easy  Black Tail Deer.  .and arc ''numerous and easy to get  if a ivnui knows anything about hnnt-  hut as-;*, rule it means a day's work.  I have known some men or some occasions,who have conic iip for a day  or two's hunting and gone away  without a:������eer, slanging the district,  and savins they were told-there were  lots of-deer, but they found none,  etc., etc. As a general rule you will  find' tint these men know nothing at  through    Hie     bush, and if ('iere are   LADYSMITH AERIE  two of    them probably keep cooeying    q   pj      .   to each other, for fear of getting  iost, and then trey expect to sec a  deer. There is only,one way to bunt  deer. .:. ,  @  When  you start.16hunt,  go slowly, quietly, and  keep  your eye  op^n.  Don't     try to cover seven or eight  miles    of    ground;   two  or  three  is  (pjjilc, enough. It is hard''-to estimate'  the number killed during the season,  but two or three .hundred must     i.e  shot if those that are killed  by    Indians are included. (  Reaver. j  These'animals arc not so numerous  as    (bey used  to be,  but are  to  bo  found ami .trapped around several  of  the.'lakes. ��������� A few  are  killed   yearly  |  at  Somcnos Lake within  a mile     of  Duncans,  Otter.     ,  There are few of these to he found  in   the   district   lakes   and   streams,  and an. occasional'one .-.is'' trapped.  Pheasants.  These birds were first..introduced in  this district about eleven years ago,  a few  being hatched  and  turned  ��������� ut  in several .places.    Now they are uuni  erous, and  ihe cock birds are allowi  ed  to    be shot,   the hens  toeing protected.    The Cowichan   Valley  i.s   f.n  ideal    home    for- them,   there  being  plenty    of  food   and   splendid   cover.  They, have done so well that some of  flic    farmers are complaining about  them,.and would like the Act amended so as  to allow the hens  to       ac  shot.      Personally    I think-  if   hens  were allowed to be shot,  they would  soon  be ex terminated,'', as  the hen  is  a "much easier bird "to be shot  than  the cock,  sitting closer and  not  being nearly so wild.   If any aU'eraijoir  in  the-Act-is'made in'-'-this  respect,  the .open" seaso. for hens should  not  be  more  than  fourteen 'days  in     he  year.     1 estimate, that about      two  thousand   pheasants   have  been   shot  tiiis season, and there still appear to  (Continued on Page three)  PAINTING,   PAPEK     HANGING  Work done properly and at . right  prices.
