As is well known, the male kangaroo, in common with many other gregarious animals, leads a very solitary life in his, old age, retiring from the cares- and troubles of kangaroo life to some sequestered .locality, generally in , the neighborhood of athick cover, to which ho can retreat in case of danger. The young bucks, in fact, drive him out of herd, and force this unsocial hfcbit upon him. Tho old men aro not very speedy, and as they get moody, and even savage in solitude, they do not always caro to exert the speed they .possess. A few days ago, while; out duck shooting near the Pine River, I caino across a very large '' old man,' a regular ' boomer.' . He was, standing erect, by the side of a large , waterhole, and had evidently noted my1 approach.' Unfortunately I had no dogs with me^ und my gun .was charged with No. 4 shot.
