leer Tackles a
Demijohn of Liquor
Drains It to the Last Drop, With the
Same Result as Upon Human
GALETON, Pa., Aug. 12. One of the
bear stories of the camping season Is
brought in by John Delaney and a com
panion who have returned from a trout
fishing eexpedltion on the Upper Young
woman's creek. They had their entire
commissary stolen by a family of black
bears, but had fun enough out of what
they saw to repay for the loss.
The men had constructed a bark
shanty, roofed with spruce boughs, on
a rock overhanging the creek and about
twenty feet above the water. In their
commissary, besides a large ham and
other supplies, they had a gallon jug
of blackberry brandy.
One evening when they returned to
camp they found four bears a big "old
man," a female and two cubs tearing
their shack to plecees.
As they looked on from a safe dis
tance they saw tho "old man" bear rise
up pn his hind feet, stagger about on
the rock for a few minutes, and then,
with a grunt and a squeal, plunge head
foremost off the rock into the stream
As the old fellow floundered and
howled in the water the female bear
and her cubs looked on In amazement
Finally tho old fellow managed to
haul himself out of the water by the aid
of a friendly sapling that bent over the
edge of the stream, and when he had
reached dry land his antics soon demon
strated what was the matter with him.
He first tried to walk on his hind feet,
then he tried to demonstrate his love
for his offspring by cuffing them about
the head In such a way as to send iho
youngsters howling away ln terror and
Finally the big lubber slipped off the
edge of the rock again and made a show
of himself by tumbling ln a heap in- a
thicket of blackberry thorns amid a net
work of treetops. His efforts to get out
of this were even more laughable than
were those In which he Indulged while
getting out of the water.
The mother bear and two cubs, evi
dently disgusted with the insane con
duet of the "old man," shambled off In
to the thicket, while the old lad himself
soon followed at an uncertain gait.
The men found their shack com
pletely In ruin's. The bears had lorn It
to pieces In their search for food, and nt
the foot of a stump lay their empty
demijohn. The old bear had drained It
to tho last drop.
The ham was gone, and so were the
bread and potatoes. A Jar of huckle
berry jam which the men had had in a
cool place alongside the edge of a rock
was broken on the rock and the jam
licked up as clean as though finished
by a small boy.
