Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 4, 1920, Lethbridge, Alberta s niE LETHB^tt)GB PAH^Y HERAL?? and ih^ Teddy Bears Slei^p ByDONWNMEETER (All'ttijihts Ae�6m4) "Ktii^, fijnMi^, it I km terjr kiul�t and lie m\ In my llitle ortb, .vltl you talk me �;i>0th�ir |tonr about, tlie little teddy h*m �Npinc Ulr winter in tlielf ten 4tk tte* lldft ot the moutitatta? You kumr ycku Smiled me that you would do jM� It I waa a Joed girl," �aid Uttla AtW 'wbea ahe had boeti pAt to lMdi�hd trandpa had laid doirn his KAp^. "Ye�,l'remember I said I would tell yoU,iirtbtMt> story about those fi&me little teed, began his story. "You iMe,.thb�e two little teddy bears were but very Wee little fellows when they disolieyod their parents and slipped out of the den the time they climbed the tree, and then bad to stay inside all; day for being naughty. "But they kept growing all summer and when the snow begaij to (all on the ground they were hilt as targe is were daddy bear and mother bear, and could go around Alone and taUia care of themselves very well unless they happened to see some strange anlmftl In the woods/then thfty would run to Ui�ir parQutBi>- Or aiiiikmper to thttir den tli4 hide. "fiut� like ot^er chlldrtoi they soon began to think they kni�w as much Ai their patents, and sometimes got themselves in trouble. "When the Anow got so deep that thejr could not find berrlOs or dig roots out ot the ground, and the rabbits and gophers had, all gdne aWay to their homes In the ground, the old bears look the two teddys and went into their den. and bving very tired, thoy all fell asleep. "They were all quite fat and felt fine, but oh, how sleepy! After a'long, long time they awoke onis morning, and looking out ot their den they were greatly surprised to see that the snow was all'gbne. When they began to move about they all felt very weak and very, very hungry. You see, they did not knpw they had s'ept all winter and had eaten nothing since going to bed. "The old mother bear lookei tit her baby hears D.nd was very sad tD see how hollow andf hungry they looked; and the old daddy bear was so that no one dared look at him. He growled and sniffed at things and wobbled all about when he tried to walk. "Finally they all felt stronger and went outside. There they were great- GOMING TO Cn Y THE NOTED PHRENOLOGIST The assemblage listened, laughed and cheered and c h e ^r e d and laughed again as Prof. Alexander scored point after point to an audience which ly surprised to see a town over the river where there had been nothing but trees When they had gone to bed. "They saw smoke toO, and directly'] they heard something go toot, toot, toot, and saw puffs ot white steam shooting nit oVer the houses ot the town. All those things were quite straiige to the bears, but they were so hungry that they wasted no tlmo in looking at such things, and begaa to hunt tor roots or little gophers, or, even little mitie, so hungry were they after their long fast. "After they had been out tor Beve^^ al days they felt better, and in a feW, weeks they began to tlhd berries and! were able to Ohase rabbits so they grew tat agaita and w6revonId surely happen to him. But the gruff old fellow would not listen to her, and telling them all to stay at home until he came back, ho shuffled off throuKh the thick woods and was soon out ot Bight. "Now the toot, toot, toots they had been hearing, wore the sounds of the whistle on the big locomotive which pulls the cars alona the track every day, but "Bruin" the bear, had never heard of any such thing before, uOr had he ever seen a railroad. "Being very cautious, as all bears are, he went up the river a long way to be sure that he would not be .^eeu by any one, and wlien he came to a good place to swim acrosu, in he plunged and was soon on the other side. "When he scrambled up the bank he thought he smelt strange things,, so he went very carefully through the bushes and trees sniffing, the air all the time, and peering about with his little black, beady eyes, lest he should run into some hidden and unknown danger. "Finally he eame to a very strange sight. Where there had been nothing but trees and bushes, when last lie was there, he found a great wldo opening through the trees and a high |yiAl|Oll OF PROSPEROUS ^ **'ESTERNXItY This is the latest photo ot K. c.

"Being very curious about all this, and wondering how it could all come about, daddy bear began to shuffle along between these two long smooth things. "What were they, Grandpa?" asked little Alice, before she could think of her promise. "Oh, there you go again," said Granpa. "Don't you. remember you were not to ask questions?" "Yes, I remember now, but I forgot just then," said the child. "Go on, l want to know what those long, smooth, things were." "Yes, and so did the old bear, aiid that was what he was trying to flpd out, but his curiosity led him into danger as you will soon see if you are patient and don't Interrupt me," said Grandpa, "As he went along between those two long smooth things he suddenly stopped. He thought ho heard bees. Bears, you must know, are very fond of honey, almost as fond of it as are little girls and boys. The old daddy bear stood up on bis bind legs, his ears sticking straight up, and hife nosO twisting about as though he smelt something very good Indeed. "Just at the side of the railway track-for that was what he waa standing on-there was a telegraph pole, and the wind was making the telegraph wires hum just like the telephone wires do just outside our gate when the wind blows. "Daddy bear was sure this was the humhiing of a nest of bees. Many a time he had heard this sound and�be had always found a bee's nest in the tree from whence the sound came, and It'.was not surprising that he was mlptftken toi'once; '.'Up the pole be decided to go, and was Boon climbing tor the top, paying no. attention to what might he going on'around him. When he had reached the cross tree on which the tele-griiph wires were strung, he had a pretty hard time of it getting to the tox*; of the pole. '/He was so busy trying to find that bee's nest that he did not notice a man coming along the track with a gun on. his shoulder. When the man had come very close he aimed his gun at thO bear and shot him. Down came "Bruin" all in a heap and the man \found that the bear was dead; so he took a big knife out of hie pocket, and Qpening it, began to take the hide off the bear. When he had done so, he cut the meat up into pieces so he copld carry it, and took it to town. He j-hafl to, make several trips, and the hide he took to a man who tans hides and had it tanned for a rug for his floor. "Oh, I have seen bear skins for rugs," said Alice, "ton't you remem-bef when we were at Aunt Eva's house she had one on her floor, and how afmid I was ot it till she told me it was only a bear skin, and that the bear that had worn it was dead?" '?Well, the man who shot the bear sold the meat and made a lot of money, because people were anxious to,know how bear meat tasted. Some of them said it was good, and others said they did not like It, but they had all wanted to know how bear moat taisted and they found out. "The old mother bear and the two teddy bears. waited a long time for the daddy bear to come home, but he never came back, and that night the two little bears and their mother cried a great deal before they went to sleep, and when it came daylight again they went out to look for him but could find nothiitg of him.
