A fight between a lire-crazed bear
and a nmule, in which the bear was
worsted, occurredt at L. Mason's ranch
at Bednesti, 11. C. The forest fire
routed the hear froim his lair, and in
Its dash from the Hanes into the open
country it collided violently with a
mule. The bear was promptly stretched
on the ground by a double tattoo from
the capable hind hoofs, and the mule

Thoroughly angered, the bear
picked itself up and cautiously ap
proached the mule from a difprent
angle. The huge paw was brought
down with a resounding thwack on
the mule's ribs. This was unfortunate,.
The hoofs were again brought into
play, after a quick, accurate maneuver
for position, and the fight was called
off, so far as the bear was concerned.
Mr. Mason, who had witnessed the
unusual encounter, dashed to the house
for a rifle to finish the bear, should

that the last plain would be to throw

futile. Putrsher 1inid pursued camie to
a yet steeper grade, with the advan

one mighty effort, the old bear threw
herself on the back of the car, holding
on by her claws air] paws.
This is where the forester decided
to retire in favor of the enemy. He
dived off the calr, and regained his feet
in time to see it continuing its Journey
eastward, with a mother and child
happily reunited as its passengers.
Later the car was found, run down
