A Wolf Story

Two Sawyers from Farmington, Minn., and a Teamster from Little Rock, Ark., while taking the body of a dead man from Joseph Moses’ Camp, on Jump River, Wis., to Chippewa Falls, where attacked about midnight by wolves. The driver plied his whip on his team, while the two sawyers, with their Winchesters, killed twenty-seven wolves and arrived at the Falls all right, but pretty well scared.
