When they canto back to the cabin
the baby was crying for his supper,
and Mrs. Strong gave him a cup of
warm milk and sat him down In front
of the fireplace. She had Just swung
the kettle of samp from the lire when
she heard a noise. Looking round, she
saw the blanket that served for a door
swing aside as a great bear thrust her
head into the room. The children
screamed, nnd the boar backed out In
haste, but Molly Strung knew that she
"Quick, children!" she said as she
caught up tho baby. "Climb the lad
der. Let sister go up first, now Joluv
nic, now Frank hurry, hurry!"
When the others wero safe In the loft
Mrs. Strong climbed up with tho fcaby
and drew the ladder after Jjer. She
lain it across the hole, and then she
and the children sat down and wulted.
The floor of the loft was made of
round poles laid closely together, but
not fastened. It was dangerous to
move about on it.
reerlng down through the pole floor,
they listened nnd watched for tho bear
to come back. They could hoar her
moving round the house, nnd once a
big paw crashed through the oiled pa
per nt the window hole. Finally she
came to tho door nnd, after blinking
uncertainly nt the Ore, walked In. Two
cubs followed her. Tho old bear pres
ently upset the pan of milk on the ta
ble, and the cubs began to lap it up
"I'd like a taste of that myself,"
"So would I," Johnnie replied. "I'm
Next, the bear found the pudding
kettle and took a mouthful of the boil
ing samp. Jumping bnck with a cry
of pain and rage, she broke the pot
with a swift blow of her paw, nnd then
sat up on her haunches, growling and
whining, nnd began to dig tho pud
ding out of her mouth. The cubs sat
and watched hor in grave wonder.
That was too much for the children,
who burst Into laughter. Instantly the
bear gave a loud roar and rushed to
ward the hole with the ladder across
it. Mrs. Strong gave hurried orders
"Get me a polo, Frank, quick! Now,
got another. Tunch her if she tries to
climb tip. Be careful. Don't fall
The baby, awakened by tho noise, be
gan to wall, and Mrs. Strong soothed
him with one hand while with the
polo In the other sho warded off tho
bear. Tho little girl clung crying to
hor mother's skirts, but tho boys each
had a long pole and prodded the bear
through tho rungs of tho ladder. Tho
big brute Anally shuffled off toward the
door. Sho pulled down tho blanket
and tore it into shreds; then sho went
out, followed by her cubs,
"Sho's gone!" Johnnie said. "Do
you think she'll como back, mother?'
I expect she will, son, but we can
manage her if we keep awake."
"I won't go to sleep!" groaned John
nie. "I'm too hungry!"
Nevertheless, tho silent wult in the
dimly lighted loft made them all
drowsy, and before tho bear returned
Mrs. Strong knew by their heavy
broathinir that tho children were
asleep. It was near midnight when
tho bear came in and renewed her ef
forts to reach the loft. Mrs. Stronft
rapped her sharply with her pole, and
thero was a roar that brought tho boys
to their feet.
Dazed and only half awake, Johnnie
ran across tho loft. Ills foot slipped
into a gap between the poles, and as he
fell other poles spread apart Down no
went Into tho room with tho bear and
her cubs. Tho bear did not see him
full, but sho faced about ot the noise
and started toward him
