Wolves

To have to live with this memory; Poor James! Poor John!

A Woodchopper Disables Himself and Is Killed and Eaten by Wolves.

CHEBOYGAN, Mich., April 13. While John and James Gillespie were chopping in the woods near Mullet Lake, a few miles from here., Saturday, James ax slipped and sank into his ankle. His brother John attempted to stench the flow of blood and carry him two miles to the nearest house, but the load and deep snow was too much, and at James’ suggestion John started for the settlement alone, leaving James in the snow. John roused a party of rescuers, who started out to bring James.

On arriving near the place where John had left his younger brother, they came to a lot of blood stains and wolf tracks in the snow, and following the trail they beheld a pack of wolves growling and fighting over a lot of bones and shreds of clothing. The party beat the wolves off with their axes, as they had no other weapons, and took all that remained of James back to Mullet Lake for burial.
