Gopher Poison

Kramer—H.L. Mantsell, a Mouse river trapper, had a narrow escape from a band of wolves. There were about twenty in the pack and when he began to shoot at them the pack ran away, leaving him with only a few cartridges in his rifle. With these he killed seven of the wolves, but was compelled to climb on top of a hay loading machine which fortunately happened to be near at hand.

He was kept there three hours before the howls of the wolves and the cries of the trapped trapper brought assistance.
