Mr. Atwddd came into Algona and reported that he had seen a large elk some two or three miles northeast of his place. He lived a little over six miles northeast of Algona, attd at that time was one of the outside pralrlo men in tho county, on Plum creek. Plum crook and Prairie creek headed together, or tieaf together, some miles northeast of Mr, Atwood's place, and it was on the headwaters of these creeks that this elk had his range. I was Very fond of hunting, and Mr. Atwood's report of seeing an elk interested me very much, and meeting Mr. A. L. Sooley soon after, and knowing his love for hunting, I told him what I had heard, and proposed when the hunting season came around that we should try and secure that elk, as it was likely the last one in tho county. , Mr. Seeley told me he would bo ready any day that I would go, and to get my horses in good shape, as we should likely have a very long clmse. We talked the matter over several times that summer and fall and decided to go out soon after the 1st of November. In the meantime I saw .Mr. Kennedy, who lived a llttlo east and south of Mr. Atwood, and he told mo that he had seen tho elk with three deer about two miles east of his place. Mr. Kennedy told me that he wanted to go with us when We went after him and that he thought he would be found near what was called the "big spring," on the old "Belmond road." This spring was the largest one that I ever saw in the open prairie, and was very fine water. .,.,,, On the day after election that fall Mr. Seeley came to town and wo decided that the next Friday wo would, if we could find the elk, give him a chase. We had had no rain that fall and the prairies were very dry and partly burned over. Mr. Seeley said he would see Mr. Kennedy and Mr. Abe Hill so that they could be ready when we came along. We decided to be at Mr. Hill's on Plum crook before daybreak, as we wanted to be on the ground when the sun rose. I had my horses well fitted, and concluded to use a cavalry horse that was with Gen. Sully in his Indian campaign. He was a splendid rider and would stand shooting from the saddle. I had a mare that was faster, but I found her to be somewhat gun-shy, and I did not want to take any chances of being thrown should I have to shoot from the saddle. The day set to go after the elk came, and a beautiful day it was, more like a September day than any other. I got up at 2 o'clock, fed my .horse, got my breakfast, put some crackers in my pockets, and by 3 o'clock was on my way to Mr. Hill's, where I was to meet Mr. Seeley. I walked my horse all the way to Mr. Hill's, as I wanted to have him in good order for the chase. I arrived at Mr. Hill's before daylight. Mr. Seeley came soon after, and as soon as Mr. Hill was ready we started for Mr. Kennedy's. Mr. Kennedy was not quite ready when we arrived so I gave my horse a light feed of oats. As soon as Mr, Kennedy was ready we mounted our horses and started for tho head waters of Prairie Creek. We kept a northeasterly course some two or three hours, saw quite a good many "deer beds," but no deer or elk, We then spread out, about one mile apart, and worked southeast and south and then southwest. We traveled till about 1 o'clock In the afternoon before we sighted game. I was at that time on the west of the line, towards Prairie creek, when I saw four animals that looked something like cattle. One of them appeared much larger than the rest, I should judge that they were two or two and a half miles away from me, I halted my horse and signaled the other boys to come to me, They came in at once, I looked through my glass and thought the game must be an elk and three deer, We then walked our horses towards the game till we were within less than a half mile of them. We could see that we had in front of us a large buck elk and three small deer. We kept on towards them, when all at once the elk threw up his head, They were feeding so close that they had not discovered us before, They looked at us a moment and then the elk struck into a pace and the deer into a run and the race was on, We held the game a very close race for about three miles or more, our horses gaining a little, The elk started south wept, and when we crossed Prairie creek Mr. Hill's horse struck a soft place, went down, and threw him over his bead as much as 15 or 20 feet. Both barrels of his gun went off. We halted an instant, but he called out that he was not hurt and for us to go on. We then put the spurs to our horses for another mile or more, yvhen the elk stopped, I think we were then within 50 or 60 rods of him, Mr, Seeley was the nearest, He got off of his horse and undertook to rest his rifle across his saddle, His horse did not stand well and Mr. Seeley under* shot the elk. The bullet struck the grovmd at the elk's feet, Mr. Seeley yelled out to me to ride for "dear life," as he had to load his gun, The elk struck out at a very fast pa.ce. I knew that I had to ride or lose him. We went about two or three miles towards Irvlngton, there the elk turned northeast towards Prairie creek, I gained a little when he turned, To show how fast he went. The deer gave w the race, laid down, and I passed with n six rode of one of them, But I ooum not stop for the deer, We were after elk tlurt day, and the elk we roust have if the hor^s heJ4 oat, The elk seemed to wa,«Uo go to.wa.rd. t^e Boone river, and. kept bearing to When he prowid PAQ|C •' 7 • ?i flour might be good fletfM: t isn't/ always, * ' , J The good flour that's always good know where to get that kind?

My horse was white with foam and though I held him buck, he seemed very anxious to go with the rest of the boys. They put their horses to the top of their speed, and before long began to gain on the elk. When within about one half mile of the Boone river the elk broke hie pace and struck into a run. The boys saw then that the chase would soon bo over. When within about 40 rods of tho river the elk laid down, but before the boys got up to him he got up find ran to the river. Into the river ho went and laid down and never got up ugain. The boys shot a rifle ball into his brain as he lay in the river. They then hitched their " picket ropes" on to him and hauled him on to tho rlvor bank. The sun was getting low and wo were 20 miles from home with four tired horses, and somewhat tired ourselves. I had been in the saddle roost of the time since 3 o'clock In tho morning, and we must have run the elk over 25 miles, I gave my horse a little water, and four crackers to eat, and then ate something myself, the first I had eaten since between 2 and 3 in the morning. The boys then struck northwest for Mr. Kennedy's nnd I nearly west, for Algona, The "polar star" was soon in sight and I coud travel very straight by that. I walked most of the way home and led my horse, as he was very tired. I got into Algona in the small hours of tho morning, and it seemed to me that I had walked more than 50 miles across the prairie. The next day the boys took a team and brought the elk in, His weight was a little over 800 pounds, It must have been pearly JO feet from the top point of his antlers to the ground when he stood up, The antlers may be seen in the hall at the court house in Algona, and I do not think any finer antlers ever adorned an elk. I have seen larger, but none move perfect. JOHN G, SMITH. MB, ANP MBS, p, T.
