BROADWAY AND MAIN STREET ; Great mtiter, Found Something He Could Not Kill -By BILLY ROSE- BlUy Base From the province of Manitoba in Canada comes the strange tale of Pierre Montevilain, the hunter. Your acceptance or rejection of it will depend on the kind of pixies under your hat. . . . For many yean, Pierre, a man with the strength of a caribou, lived In almost medieval splendor in a chateau overlooking Lake Winnepcg. Only two things interested him—hunting and drinking, and the measure of the man was that he was more concerned with the potency than the taste of his liquor, and cared little what It was he shot as* long as he tnade the kill. When he was forty, he married Emilie d'Arbeslne, a girl of good family from the Wlnnipegosis district, and when she presented him with a son a year later he toasted his heir in Hudson Bay rum and predicted that he, too, would some day be a great hunter. His wife, however, hated the continual kiUlng. 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 a silver medallion of St. Francis of Assist, patron saint of 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 animal," she told him. * • • A FEW MONTHS before the boy's ninth birthday, his father found a new-born fawn in the forest and presented it to his son. The lad named it Francois, bottle-fed it until the shakiness went out of its legs, and trained it until it followed him around like a puppy. Oi» bit birthday a few wieht later, Piern gave bit ion another present, a specially • constructed rifle, tmall enough for * boy to tarry but in all other respects ait efficient inttrument of detraction. "Tomorrow." he said, "we will go hunting." The youngster said nothing, but later asked bis mother what be should do. "You must go with your father, •aid Emilie. "You told me that when people die their souls go Into animals," •aid the boy. "Wouldn't it be like killing a person?" "Your father thinks differently. "1 won't shoot to hit anything," •aid the lad. Pierre, who had been drinking on the porch, overheard the conversation. Addressing himselt to his son, ha said, "There will be no more women's talk. You will become a man and a hunter like your father. Tomorrow we go to the woods, but your tirst lesson will be tonight. Take your rifle and shoot the fawu " Terrified, the boy nodded and went to the barn. He prodded the fawn with a stick and tried to frighten it into the forest, but the pet, thinking it was a new game, took a few playful leaps and then frisked back 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 AN HOUR later, Pierre back on the porch, was roused from his rum by a shot and walked out to the barn, certain that the boy, like a true Montevilain, had obeyed his order. Instead, on the earth floor he found his son's body, blood oozing through the shirt, while the fawn, the medallion dangling from its neck, stood near by. Crazed, Pierre picked up the rifle and pumped the remaining bullets into the animal's heart. Then he tore the talisman from the carcass. Next day the boy was buried with the medallion of St. Francis again around his neck, and after the funeral Emilie went back to her own village. from thin on, the great hunt- ir became the great butcher. Day aftir day, be killed as if beat on exterminating every aaimjl in thi furesl. and at night he drank and euned bis u'ife for her ideal about souh and animals. One evening the following summer lie saw a giant stag at the far end of the garden. He reached for his gun and followed it down to the lake. At the water's edge the animal paused and Pierre lifted the gun to his shoulder, but instead of a giant stag be saw a 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 villagers were not surprised a few days later when they learned that Pierre Montevilain had died of a s'u-oke. But there was much talk about the object found in the dead man's hand—a silver medallion i St. Francis of Asslsi suspends on a thiu gold chain.
