anything else fine, bad given them the
fluent names, which, she was accustom

The Wilda lived in a two roomed log
cabin in the great gum woods, only two
miles from a railway village. They rent
ed their land, paying rent in the corn
and cotton of their raining. They owned
ten piga and a cow, and Sir. Ormond,
their landlord, allowed them the use of
a pair of mules. Fuel is to bo bad for
the gathering in the forest, while fruit
and vegetables grow almost of their own

Not she. She sat down in the cold mud,

sister." said Claude, pulling at ber

Baby sister was a determined charac
ter. She was also fat. Claude knew
from experience that he conld not carry
ber balf a mile. "And if I slap her she
lay down flat and heller 1" thought he.
Therefore this wise little lad tried di
plomacy. "Say, baby sister," said he in
tones of silken softness, "less we all go
look at the circus I"
Baby sister came np like a bouncing
ball and smiled like a cherub. "Ate good
now," lisped she.
Yon must not suppose that there was
a real circus to see. A real circus had
exhibited its splendors yesterday at the
village, but the Wilds were too poor to
buy tickets. They all saw the procession,
however, which of itself was a thrilling
experience. What Claude named the cir
cus was tho brilliant poster on a desert
ed barn by the high road. How may a
grown up person adequately describe the
magnificence of that cartoon? Tbe beau
teous damsels pirouetting on flying
white steeds, the valiant gentlemen in
pink tights, with curled mustaches, turn
ing somersaults over trapeses best of
all, the savage beasts lions, bears,
rhinoceroses, tigers crouching and
ramping and tearing their prey in the
brightest jungles! Ah, how frightful!
How glorious ! Claude could have gazed
ou tho animals by the hour. Especially
did he admire the grizzly bear, him in
the lower right hand corner where the
piece was torn off. The fact is, Claude
always kept a lively interest in bears be
cause of bis mother's "bear stories." In
Mrs. Wild's narratives there were no
grizzlies nor cinnamon nor black bears;
tbo bears were divided into two moral
species only tbe good bears and tbe

and generally, after a heart shaking sus

triumph to a thank offering of nuts and
"Bat good bear?" chirped baby sister,
standing on one foot and tilting her wee
chin back, tbe better to view the pic
tare. Claude Ukewue stood on one foot.
It was because the ground was cold, and
the winter stock of shoes was not bought
yet So the little Wilds stood on one
foot, as the chickens do, to keep warm.
"I reckon," said Claude. Then be
told the often told story to such good
effect that, on its happy conclusion, baby

said tbe brother confidently, "I ain't

Baby sister trotted along, paying no

Claude. "Reckon we all's bouse does be

even for Santa Class, but she ran on

cheerfully, crooning a fanny little song
Behold the children now, walking
band in band, like good little brother
and sister, through the vast, dim forest.
I can see exactly how they looked., lean
tee tbe forest. A few bright leaves still
are clinging to the boughs of tbe gum
trees and the slim dogwood branches;.
There are smears of green on the willow
oaks. The sun burns in flickering
splashes on these gay baes, it lightens
the rusty shreds of foliage on the other
trees, strikes narrow gleams of silver out
of tbe black pool to the children's right,
and paints softer and brighter the soft,
bright green of the moss on cypress
trunks. Tbe cypress trees grow in the
water. This is the Vswag land" that
Claude's mother cautions him daily to
shun, for in that mnddy water two help
less children might sink and die, and
their shrieks be never beard! .
No doubt Claudo looked upward at
the clusters of mistletoe, the white bet
ries of which gleamed among tbe tree
tops and wished himself as big as Luci
us. Lucius had been promised a whole
large silver dollar when he should fetch
a barrel of mistletoe and holly to Mr.
Crosby, the northern gentleman wbo
waa staying at Colonel Ormond's, He
was a very accomplished gentleman, this
northern gentleman. He had come from
Texas, where he bad killed bears and
deer and learned to lasso wild horses.
He was going to send the mistletoe to a
4retty young lady north. He told Claude
so himself. Claudo thought that it must
be bis sister. He gave Claude 50 cents
once, for nothing on earth but gathering
him a bag of pecan nuts. He' had as
much money as that ! '
Marveling over such wraith and gen
erosity, Claude ran along the path. They
had reached the lowlands, and Claude,
who obediently kept on . tho higher
ground, was lifting baby sister in order
to carry her across a muddy place when
an awful thing happened I Claude raw a
bear. Not a bear in a picture this time;
a real flesh and blood, fur and claws
bear! He was plain to see, coming at a
gentle pace through the trees, a huge
bulk of grayish black, with black muz
sle, and a red, red tongue lolling be
tween two jagged white saws of teeth.
Claude's heart bumped against his
ribs. His thin legs shook to the extent
that he had like to have dropped baby
sister. Was the bad bear come to eat
them at last? In one swift and agonized
glance his eyes seized on the single
chance of escape. A log floated on tbe
water cf the bollow, one end almost
touching the dry ground, the other
against a backberry tree. Like all such
trees, tho hackberry. had knots and
lumps on the trunk, and many low
growing limbs. Children that had climb
ed from babyhood could wriggle np the
tree by these knots and sit in the
branches. The unsteady log would bear
their light weight, but it would not hold
up a big bear.
It is not likely that Claude reasoned
the matter out completely. Some in
stinctive picture of such a thing camo to
him, and bo hurried baby sister on to
the safety bridge. She had seen tbe bear
now. She was sure it was tbe bad bear
sent on a mission of vengeance because
slie bad been "mean," and she clung to
Claude, trembling, so that she nearly
toppled him over, and wailing: "Oh,
don't let bear eat baby ! Baby bo good !
Me good now 1" in a piteous small voice
How poor little Claude, with bis heart
jumping and his legs shaking, was able
to trundle that fat and frightened baby
over the wet, slimy, unstable log is hard
to explain. Somehow be did do it, balf
holding, half pushing baby sister. Well
for both children that their feet were
shod with nothing more slippery than
their own skint
They could bear the bear heavily plod
ding through the underbrush. They
dared not look behind, they dared not
hurry, for black death was ambushed in
the morass waiting only a slip.
They scrambled np the hackberry
branches. Claude helped baby sister into
a crotch. She was too little and feeble
to climb very high. After he h"d crawl-
"Mamma, mamma, bcarfixin to eat me!"
ed besido her be ventured to look back.
Yes, the bear was coming. Deliberately
be waddled across the road to the log.
He mounted the leg. He was walking
on the log.
"Mamma! mamma!" screamed the
frightened baby, "bear fixin to eat me !"
Claude burst into wails and cried for
bis mother, too, but in an instant be was
shouting with relief: "Look a there!
Look a there! He done mired np!"
Sure enough, the bridge that bad been
Bone too stout for the two babies sank
under the big bear, and off he swashed
into the swamp with a mighty thud and
sputter. He heaved and plunged until
be got two paws upon tbe log, but he
could do no more, and perhaps be re
signed himself to his bathtub, the day
not being cold, and his coat being a thick
one, since he presently gave over his
struggles and stood passively eying the
children with a perfectly geitle and
sleepy it are..
Now, I know, if Claude did not, that
the bear had stopped at Farmer Nor
man's storehouse and gluttonously de
voured a whole side of "middlings." I
feel no sort of surprise at his peaceful

But as Claudo looked at his mild eves
a wonderful thousht came to him. Waa

never pursued . any except - naughty.
"mean" children. And Claude bad not
been "mean." He had been "toting"
baby sister borne as well as he could,
and, while baby sister bad been "sorter
ill like," which is Arkansas for. crass.
ebe had repented and was running along
"good as good." He stared hard at the
bear. He was balf persuaded that the
oear meant to speak. Bears conversed
nuently in the stories.
"Please, sir," said Claude, "is yon
me gooa Dear?"
The bear grunted.
"What, sir?" said Claude, with anx
"Ur r r!" said the bear.
"He p'intedly does favor the circus
bear, " the little boy reflected which it
is very likely he did, being the circus
Dear no less himself. He had escaped
and was ranging the country, pursned
by half a dozen bands of men, Of this
CJaude was ignorant, but the longer he
watched the bear's mild demeanor the
more emboldened he crew.
"Please, Mist' Good Bear," said be
humbly, "won't you git np and go way?
Baby Sister, she are powerful skeered
np, and I caynt git her to go by yon no
way, and maw's waiting on us"
He checked his tencue just in time to
avoid saying "for dinner, " remember
ing that there was a rii-k yet that it
uiignt ue ino nau near, ana not willing
to 6tart such a suggestive and dangerous
train of thought. The bad bear's favor
ite dinner was little boy. -
Never a word answered the bear. He
blinked his eyes, aid the muddy water
'about bis flunks began to ripple. That
was all. .
Impatiently Claude watched him', and
now, clear and shrill, the notes of his
mother's horn racked the air. They
must go I lio cast about in his. mind for
a way to propitiate their brute jailer.
Sadly he took cut his precious cake.
The eye of the bear twinkled.
"If you'll please light right out.
Mist' Good Bear." said Claude, "I'll
give yon this. It is a mighty nice cake.
I did ben going to give it to maw for
Christmas gift, but if you will sauter
off and let we all git by I'll frow it to
you. Yon needn't bo 'fraid I won't frow
straight. I always frow corn pone to
our dag Alnmps. He's a right nice dog
and likes beirs," added Claude eagerly.
"Will I frow it. sir?"
The bear grunted 'and reared himself
on his hind legs, ready to catch. In
deed, catching "6veeties" was one of
his most admired trick?.
Claude raised the cake. How beauti
fnl it looked, with all that white candy
on top! He couldn't let it all go.
"Please, Mist Good Bear," be stam
mered, "kin I take one bite a right lit
And then, talcing the bear's grunt for
assent, he did venture to nibble one wee
morsel before be flung the cake, swift
and trne, at the great black head. The
bear swung bis jaws at it, catching it
cleverly. And directly, as if he wished
to humor each a generous little boy, he
made a vast heave and splash, plainly
an effort to ollmb out of the mud. In
vain. . He was held tight . -
Up to this moment Baby Sister bad
been awestruck into the quiet children
keep at first with strangers, but at the
commotion she screamed again.
"Tain't nare use, Mist' Good Bear,"
said Claude.. "You' plumb mired np,
