The people of Chicago had anewsen

bear hunt. The particulars of it are

(JOsOQ l'ai'k. on the ?real side, in Chi
cago, has had three lar.'e bears, which
have been the principal objects of inter?

it was decided to remove ihe animals to

broke lus pen, made of small one-inch
lioerds, i.ii'.ni loosely pot together,with
one blow of his ma-sive paw, sprang
to tbe ground.
The crowd thai bad been following
I the wagons scattered at once, and the
park police and the bear's keepers im?
mediately Hied to capture him. In this
they were to drive the animal into tbe
barn ot the >t. Julian House, which

(?lied. For two hours.cyery effect was
made to capture bruin, and night corn

storm reudered more ttl'urts to capture
him not only fruitless but dangerous.
So lbs ? hase was given up till moming.
Kai'y in the morning, titty men and
boys surrounded the bear, who was in
a little patch of wood near the Boule?
vard, and alter another hour had been
spent in fruitless efforts to seize him, it
wa?. decided to kill him. aud all persons
whu had lire-arm? were told to Arc ou
