M.UJLKD BY A BKAU. Perhaps tin; most of ua associate the idea of a bear with tlie grizzly of the Rockies or the fierce'denizen of Polar regitiriH. All the xame. the Indian specimen. as the following will show, is by no means to lie despised. He is of two kinds—one the red brown bear of Cashmere, a native Of the Himalayan. living chiefly about the snow line, which in thai range lies at an altitude of 15.000 feet; tho. other is the black-bear. found on lower sloped, where he haunts walnut and apricot trees, and is partial to honey. Ho is found also in tlie table laud of southern Ipdia. in the jun-gles. Both kinds Koiuetiniea incisure as much as six feet from tlio tip of his nose to the end of the stump of his short tail. The black bear is adorned with a queer, horseshoe shaped white mark 011 the chest, a good place lit which to aim at liini. The strength of lienrs is enormous. One constantly comes . across natives who have lieen brushed out of tlie way by a ni.le p;i:sh with the paw-of a bear, with the result of losing u limb or part of their jaw. One of the great d.uiger.s of the sport uf bear shooting is that of getting below the animal, who may then charge down upon his antagonist. l!ut. owing to their bad sight—they have <|,;eer. small eves, deep sunk in their heads—and their greediness, which lbsorbs them in their feeding, a bear is iiy no menus illiUeult 10 stallc, anil a Car easier prey than an ibex or deer or tiger. My largest b:i;; was o:uv four bears in .me day. It win in Cashmere; we had marched ten days across tlie hills to a valley high up in the nr untains, where we had pitched our tent. I was alone, teeompaiiied only by two shikaris, or uitive hunters. It was the month of April, the best ¡eason for bear shooting, for Hrum. thin, uingry and full furred, hail only just emerged from his winter hibernation. aUuit :l a. 111.. and leaving the smoldering camp ,'ire, we ciimed, under a bright 1110011, a steep pull up a neighboring peal;. It was essential to reach our point of vantage-bofore the sun was up, as after •iunrise the wind blew down the mountain. and would bo between us and our ijuarry. With field glasses to our eyes we scanned the panorama, bounded to the north by the sharp cut peaks of snow standing out clearly in tlie growing daylight. The bears were then returning from the night's prowl, aud on a lucky day I have seen as many as seventeen svithin a radius of four or five miles. When a likely beast is spotted, hard lit work, unearthing some root or investigating a liens' nest, the stalk follows. It may be over difficult ground, and mean steady hard work. '•At last we readied to within a hundred yards of where the bear was last seen, and, with a doubled up figure antl cat like steps, peered over the point of rock, with cartridge put in and ride pointed. It was all right. Within tl;iirtv yards was a bear, unconsciously feeding. But, .ih! lie sns|iected something, for lie rose 111 his bind legs and snuiTcd tlie air. 1 ru ed, aiming at his chest, liruin tumbled over ami rolled down tlie hill. dead. So much for number one. Leaving the second shikari to lake tlie skin, we made for 11 point above us, to look for more sport.. On turning a corner, however, we saw a little above us a bear coming toward us. To retire hastily out of sight and to struggle up the hill, so as to get on ia'tter terms with the animal, was the first thought. Then, with rifle full cock, I peeped cautiously over the edge of a rock to get a view of my friend, when—was it possible?—1 found myself almost face to face with Bruin. Our heads nearly touched! Hut lie was the more surprised of the two, for he bad no notion I was anywhere about, and ho swung slowly round, only to rcccivo his death wound jiul to topple down the bill. Then followed breakfast anil the hot hours of the day. spent lying on one's back i:i the shade, sleeping, or enjoying dreamily the wonderful |>anorania of fold after fold of mountain and valley spread out before one. It was about 4 o'clock, when the sun had begun to go down, thai I accounted for bears number three and four. Al out a mile olf we saw 11 bear cross a patch of snow. After u careful stalk •ve came close i^kxi him. But he was not alone; he was feeding in company with another, on a little plateau between two hills. i got a shot at him. nnd lie made off cxcitedi .. hanging one forearm, 1 after liini, wiili my second rifle, as fast as I could go. when a u-hisjier from iny shikari made me turn my head. "For t' ■ love of Allah, sahib, not that way! There, up that tree!" 1 took his advice, and from the tre« could H"»M>ver the precipice as to whithel my wounded friend bad gone. Lo und U'hold! There he was, resting on the very path I was taking, and on the lookout for me too! A steady shot from my express, and down he went into some birch bushes below him. Reloading quickly. 1 looked out for him to break covert; but in the meantime his companion had taken the same path, ami us lie turned and looked in-guiringly at 1110 I cot a shot at him nnd Ee abd"macle ofr frito the covert, I reloaded and awaited the result Nothing emerged from the patch of jungle. So after a while we cautiously approached the spot, and the second sliikari seeing something lying threw a stone, and then pronounced" it dead. And Indeed upon closer inspection we tound the two bears, lying dead side by uide. Ho nuch tor bear shooting in the Himalayas. It was amongst the great black bean of the semi-tropical jungles of southern India that the following much more serious adventure befell me, nearly putting an end to mo altogether and leaving a gash two inches deep down my thigh for life. We were a party of two or three, shooting in a vast jungle on the banks of a river, and found plenty of sambur deer, leopards, and a few bears. We beat tha jungle by means of a small army of coolies, the sportsmen stationing themselves at 1'kely spots for the game to break covert. A very large black bear lumbered past within shot of me. I missed him. and he disappeared into the jungle Before 1 hud time to pursue him, however, the bear, headed back by the beaters, came down the path straight towards me, and in a terrible rage stalking along on his hind legs as he approached me. I fired and hit him, but on he came: and in another moment, towering above Ine, ho bad closed with me and knocked mo down like a ninepin, drawing Ids huge claws across mo, from my shoulder to my thigh. But for inv wearing a thick woolen cumberbund, or belt, wrapped many times round my middle, lie must all but inevitably liavo injured 1110 fatally. The bear stood over uie, growling, like a cat playing with a mouse. But I did not lose my presence of mind, and managed to get out/ny hunting knife, which, with the strength of despair, I buried up to its hilt in the animal's chest. He staggered a little, but he seized me the next minute with Jus jaws round my thigh and shook me. The thick goatskin leggins I woro stuffed up his mouth somewhat, nnd probably saved my leg, but the gash is there to this day. I managed to get my knife into him again, though, at this juncture, and ho dropped me, only to seize me, again, however, at this time on tlie shin, which lie tore from knee to ankle. But lie Was losing blood fast, and dropped me a second time. Then be pulled himself together, as it were, and had another go at me. This time lie seized me hythcauklc. and bit one of the tendons nearly through. But tlie hear was done for. Faint from loss of blood, he had to drop me again, and staggered, rolling over. He picked himself up. though, only to fall again, and roll away some yards from where I lay, and to fall dead. He measured six feet from nose to fail. So when on his hind legs he could not have stood much less than nine feet high. As for nie, wounded as I was, I had to be carried some forty miles, across two rivers, in a litter before I could receive medical attention, and narrowly escaped bleeding to death. As it was, I lay two mouths on my back, and it was a question as to whether they would not hav« to amputate the leg that had been so severely mauled by a bear.—E. E. Cuthell in Golden Days.
