P. R. THE black bear came shuffling down the mountain aide through tbe fallen timber, pausing here and there to turn over a rotten tog Id search ot grubs. It was summer and the feed was good. He. was quite well-satislied with tbe world. He bad found a very good Held tor Investigation in the new territory he bad just taken up. In tbe tangle ot tbe burnt ancUfallen trees he was"- sure of staples ol lite, and down on the edge of the river beside the trail be often discovered rare titbits/left by camping parties. A hoarse whistle booming op from over the shoulder ot tbt> mountain on his left scarce caused him to pause. was a section of bis everyday life... Ever since his youngest cub days he had heard the'roar, far or close, on one side or another. Sometimes he crossed the steel bars on which the roaring monsters slid down or rolled up. out and Into Field. He was a British Columbia Dear, and tbe Canadian Pacific, main line was as much*a part ot hie life as tbe mountains were. He drifted down further, and spied a tent It looked tempting and he scuffed close. There wss no one around, and he thrust an Inquisitive nose within. Strange sights and wonderful smells greeted blm. He made a. tentative sweep at a bag with one irraed paw and sr' snowy mass of mgar rolled out He ate. Then be � tried tbe bacon and Joqnd it good. he. arched for a dessert and found a' tin. This was held firmly iu his paws while ae bit at tbe top. It came off, and the contents looked red and delicious. Being a cautious bear be investigated further by tli resting bis nose into the opening and sniffing deep. Instantly he coughed violently and a cloud of particles arose from the can and filled his eyes and mouth. With a strangled roar he raced blindly about. He tore up blankets, he wallowed against the camp stove, he ripped the tent walls with his .frantic'pawo. and Anally brought all down upon him tn a ruined wreck. Fighting madly he worked free and dashed to the river where he plunged madly Into the flood lust as Jim Simpson, a guide and minter, . rounded the trail and saw the ruin wrought.. Simpson looked at the damage/and swore, he pulled tbe canvas -from the tangled mess of camp paraphanalia and disturbed s fine dust. He sneezed. He looked further. Red -particles arOBc in little clouds when he moved any article. He picked up tbe can wale* caused tbe trouble, and- be laughed. It was cayenne pepper, v But he thought tbe bear was prating a nuisance, so be. rode ten miles tc his winter camp and brought back a huge-Jawed bear trap. And he set tbe grim mass of metal In the thick of tbe tastiest-looking pile of rotten logs on tbe edge of tbe down timber, .for heXjjuew tbe habits of bears. When the next dawn painted tbe peaks he started out with sts rifle and hie kodak. Men wbo bunt in the Canadian I'aciflc Rockies tor their livings have realized that the "smera-eye- la as much ot a money-setter ae the bullet. When the bright (corning sun peered warmly and cheerily over the.low shoulder that reaebed out into the broad valley ot tbe ttow be was lockteg down..from a mass of Jombled timber or the trapsed beer, anil the latter was looking, at bin. lie paw was eiampwi In .the imc*ea. teeth of the trap and tbe 1MN before the rifle mscnaobun sM a Ms; cartridge from magnetite sa hswML Tnen anitber camp vaadM bad mm ;
