Adit MOT* Million* «-«t«r the proceed. co»in« from BY BILLI ROSB From the province of Manitoba h Canada comes the strange tale of "Pierre. Montevilaln, the hunter. Your acceptance or rejection o! t will depend on the kind of pliles under your hat ... ' ; Par many y*» cs > Pierre,' a ' man with the strength of a carrlbou, ived in almost medieval splendor iri a chateau overlooking Lake Wlnnepeg. Only two things interested him—hunting and drinking, and the measure of the man'was lhat he was more concerned with the potency: than the the taste of Ills liquor, and cared little what it was he shot as long as he made the kill. When 'he was forty, he 'married Emille d'Arbeslne, a girl of good family, from the winnipegosls district, and when, she presented him with a son a year later he toasted Ms heir in' Hudson Bay rum and predicted that, he,- too, would some day be a/great hunter., " His wife,'"howcverVhated the continual killing, and as the child grew older she was happy, that he showed no inclination: for the hunt. To encourage his love of wild life, she gave him R silver medallion- ol St. Francis or,-Assist,-patron saint ol -birds - and' beasts, and .hung It around his neck-on a thin gold chain. "I've heard .it said that when people die their souls enter other living things, sometimes- an To ft«4 SUt of animal,'? she told him. Ufew months before , the boy's ninth birthday, his lather found -a new-born fawn in the forest and presented it to'his son. The lad named It . Francois, •_ bottle-fed It until the shaUtiess ,«ent out of ts legs, and trained It until it iilowed him around like a puppy. On his birthday a -few. weeks ater, Pierre gave his son another >resent. a specially-constructed rifle small enough for a boy to carry but in all other respects an efficient instrument of destruction. "Tomorrow," he said, "We, will "go hunting." The youngster said nothing, but later asked his mother what he should 'do. "You must go with your father," said Emille. "You told me that when people die their souls go into animals," said . the 1 boy. "Wouldn't It be like killing a' person?" "Your father thinks differently." "I -won't shoot to hit anything, said the lad. .Pierre, who had been drir.king on the porch, overheard the con- ation. Addressing himself to hl» son; lie said, 'There will .be. no more women's talk, You will become man and « hunter like s your father. Tomorrow we go to the woods, but your first lesson will be tonight. Take your rifle' and thoot the fawn." Terrified, the boy nodded • and went to Ihe barn. He prodded the fawn with a stike and tried to frighten It Into the forest, but the pet, thinking It was a new game, took playful leaps and then frisked for more sport. Finally, the boy placed the medallion of St. Francis around the .fawn's neck. It needed divine protection more than he. Half ah hour later; Pierre, back on the porch, wns roused from his rum by a shot and walked out to -the barn, certain that the boy, like a true Nfentevilaln, had obeyed his order. Instead, one the earth floor he found his son's body, blood oozing through the shirt, while the fawn, Ihe medallion dangling from Us neck, stood near by. . Grazed, Pierre picker) up the rifle and pumped the remaining bullets Into the animal's heart. Then he tore Ihe talisman from the carcass. 'Next rtnv the boy was bulled with the medallion of St. Francis again round his neck, and after the uneral Emille went back to' her >wn village.. : From then on. the great hunter became the great butcher. Day after day, he killed as If bent on exterminating every animal in .the forest, and at night he drank and cursed his wife for her Ideas about souls and animals. On? evening the following summer ,h'e saw a giant slag at the far end of the eardrii. He reached Oct. > (AT) — The federal government tpent about II, 400,000,008 mar* than It -took In during the tint 'three month! of the 1MO fiscal year, and no relief from red ink financing appears in sight. The. most hopeful gue&i from an administration expert puts the bud- ret deficit for' th» 1J months ending next June M at $3,000,000,000. for his gun. and .followed It down to the lake. .At,'the water's edge the animal paused and Pierre lifted the'gun to hts shoulder, but Instead of a giant stag he saw « frightened fawn, its eyes reminded him of two other sets of eyes, but he fired, and the animal gave a little jump and fell dead. Attracted by something on its neck, he walked over to see what it was . . . The villager's were not surprised a few days Istei when they learned that Pierre Montevilain had died of a stroke. But there was much tnlk about the object found in the dead man's h a n d—a silve medallion of .81. Francis of Assis suspended on a thin gold chain.
