For mischievous natives Lilied Hun full of hair raising Bear and Wildcat stories and other tales of life in the Woods thereabouts. Gibson accepted everything lie heard in Good Faith and became ii red with a Desie to kill a Bear. Having been told that lie liable at any moment to come face to lace w Ith a Bear or a Catamount Gibson followed Tho advice of Doc Preble and every time lie went in of the Woods he strapped a Hunting a at his Side carried a big knife and one bar j Lei of ids gun heavily charged with Buckshot. The Vest of tie Hunting j party themselves enjoyed the fun the natives were having with Gibson and did not interfere. Soon after there a fall of Snow in that locality and Doc Preble conceived the Lka off getting up a Bear Hunt for Young gel Sony a Benefit. Putting on his Fibber boots he made tracks in the new Snow from on big Laurel Patch to another one a mile up the Mountain a no from that one to a third one nearly two Mil a away on tin Edge of bilk to a hollow. tie struck the old bark Road and returned Home by it. Toward evening he went to Barnes boarding House where tin Hunters Wen stopping Ani remarked Ilia nonchalant that from the tracks lie had seen in tin Snow up .1 Long Lye a Mountain that afternoon tile biggest Bear Itiat Ever had w entered in that District had come in and toiled himself up in some Laurel pitch Over that . A it would t be much trouble to rout ism out i guess a a said Doe a if anyone cared to go oui and risk Gibson is a excitement at once and declared that he would go for one j lie lost of the parly suspecting there a joke in it said he might go if lie wanted to out that they had to come out. There to lie clawed and chased i very Likely run you Down and trample a Over Yon and claw you some Tho first time but that a part of the Hunt. I be known some folks to make a break for the nearest tree and Shin up it when they saw the Bear making his Rush but that spoils a Man for being a Bear bunter. Remember a i says and done to shoot until you can see the w bites of his eyes and when lies trampling Aud clawing and chewing you then get in your Little work with your a and your knife. Understand a a Gibson kind of stuttered out that lie understood and the sweat poured out of him so and he looked so much As if he w shed he Home that i Cit sorry for him but i went off into a Thicket and Robed in the Snow for five minutes and stuffed my lint in my Mouth to keep from hollering right out and then went Back to wait for Dave to go Iii and stir up the linear. I stood right where i could see Gibson and a Maple tree that stood not More than 20 feet to one Side of him. A a a ill have to burst when lie 1 brows his gun and goes fur that t rec i says. A and if he is too scared to climb it i know i shall die a a Dave went into tile Patch to rout lip the Bear.

There came from the midst of the disturbance such a combination of yells and howls and snorts and growls that id taken fright myself and rail if i Hadnot known that is Only Dave. And Gibson stood still and waited. Then i heard ii shot in the swamp and another yell followed by a startling creaking and swaging of the laurels the line of that commotion leading straight Tow aril me. i hollered. Ties a terror a a i done to know what Gibson replied for the next second out of that Laurel Patch not 20 feet from my crashed a Bear so big and with such fury in his eyes Tim i its a wonder i did no to drop in my tracks. I did t Lune Lime to think. The Bear coming head on for me with his jaws snapping like a thrashing nun Bine. I. Turned and i saw the Maple tree that i had in my mind reserved for Gibson and my fun. J flew for it.

Among Hie laurels for four or five Miles j Jujj trailing the alleged Bear and All the time loading him Quot till the danger there in tin Rush of a ferocious Bear from a Laurel Latch to anyone who might stand in his then for Bantay when we came to the Laurel Latch where we had agreed that the Bear had Stop Ted to go into the swamp and rout him up. Making a trem Rad is hubbub. And howling id snorting and Yelling. As if the Bear worked up to the wildest pitch of fury Over being disturbed. And going out of that swamp with a Rush to carry trouble to Hie first one in came to. Tillson having just been pasted it a Point on the Edge of the Latch and assured that the Bour would certainly conic out. There so he could shoot it and then to see Gillson break for the nearest tree and get into it to the first sound of the disturbance in the laurels. A worked first rate. When we got to the. Last Laurel Patch i buffing and blowing like a tired horse and a about As near bushed is anyone could la but i thought of Tho fun i having and the More i going to have and said nothing but just went off to one Side and Shook Ray sides.
