It That left a vacant placo at her side, and tho idea occurred to me that perhaps tho old pig would not object to tho little bear cub occu pying it. I concluded to try the ex periment, anv how, and while the now was lying sleepy content ment, nnrsing her litter, I sat the cub down among the pigs. It went to feeding with them as naturally as if it were suckling its own shaggy mother in some hollow tree or hole in tho rocks. The cub was twice as big as the pigs, but they did not offer any objec tion to its sharing in their sustenance, and the old pig paid no more attention to the presence of the bear than if it bad been there from tho start. As a foster mother she was a success, and tho cub grew up right along with her own off spring, and, except in looks, was as much a pig as a bear. In fact, before the cub was two months old he had captured the heart of his foster mother and held a place there that none of the old pig's own litter held. How tho bear discovered it I don't know, but he found out that the mother of the family, like all pigs, would miss a meal to have ner back scratched, and that imp of a bear used to humor this weakness of her's and scratch her back by the hour, while sho lay and grunted her appreciation. ,From what I know now, I believe that tho cub was establishing himself in tho entire confidence of tho sow as a part of tho scheme he was .even then planning. Th® little pigs grew rapidly, but not more rapidly than their foster brother. "At the age of three months the pigs •were fat and cliubby fellows, and the bear was almost as big as tho old sow. lie had begun earlv with his trjeks on tho pigs, as ho had on their mother, and they had come to regard hfa favor ite pastime of snatching one of thetn up, tuckingit under his arm and lug ging it around here and there about the premises, as a piece of rare fun for them, as well as for the boar, although at the start the bear was obliged to cuff thetn roui.dly to induce them to submit to it withcut squealing or kicking We used to think that pig-carrying trick of tho bear's was just the cutest thing imaginable, and we always took pride in exhibiting our pet bear in his act of carrying one or tho other of his pig brothers about,the farm. "There were seven of the pigs, and tho family, bear and all, were shut up at night in a high enclosure to which there was a door that was fastened by a rude wooden latch, that could be raised either on the inside or outside by pull ing a leather string. This enclosuro was made on purpose to keep pig-steal in# boars out of tho pen, bears having been numerous and bold at tho timo the pen was built •*One morning in July I went out to feed tny pigs, and what was my surprise to Itn i two of tho young pi#s missin/j. he bear was lying in one corner of tb.o pen scratching the old sow's back, but came out yawning and stretc'alng him self to yet bis breakfast I had dis Charged a msii a Who bad v.H'kod cause 1 ha 1 1'tPiti Ih NtTrouble ilnti iv luon iy, and I abng ...j jo4 couldn't have, gone in a without their inukin# a havo aroused soidm one in v, i A li.lsi-: INdHATE. flxperio.ic i,i a Pine Creek Man with a Pot Do:ir. i« U iH« Tlifiu, Hut Don't Ilow Itruin Dcliv red Ov«r to th* I nfmy Hi* I oster Mother and Il«*r Children. "I don't know what other peoplo might do under tho circumstances," said Lewis Shaffer, of tho Pine crook country, "hut if I should conn* across a hear cub in tho woods that. 1 thought .was an orphan and likely to perish for lack of a mother's care, I wouldn't take it homo and hecomo a parent to it, but would kill it then and there.

"A year ago last March 1 was going through the woods up abut# l'ine crook, the day after wo had had a terri ble wind-storm, which had tumbled a good many trees oo a lumb or lot I own. 1 heard a peculiar whining cry among some down timber, and. going to the pot, found a largo pine tree lying across the dead body of a bear. It was a bis she bear, and, cuddled up close to tho dead animal was a cub not more Ithan a week old. It was doing tho (whining I had heard. The tree had blown down and crushed the* old boar to kleath as it was passing the spot, and 'the cub would have remained at Its dead mother's side and starved todeath tlf I hadn't happened along just at that Itittie. I took the little orphan bear 'homo with me intending to raise it by ihand. That night an old sow ol mine [that had a two days' old litter of pigs laid on one of the pigs and killed it. 1 sible 'hat would house. It was out -f 'ho question, too. that a bear could have got in and carried off tho pigs. The discharged hired man had stolen them. I was sure. I found out where he was, and detcrmin'-d to sot an investigation going. Tho very next morning, when I wont out to feed my pigs, I was made wild almost by the discovery that two more of them were missing I was at !irst in clined to have the suspected thief ar rested forthwith, hut on second thought concluded to wait and set a wau over the, pen th.it ni#ht. My barn only for mo to get there in timo the rhanc.es are that I would not have done so, for when the boar had got within a few yards of the woods two other bears,1 tremendous big fellows, stepped out from tho edge of the timb 'r and hurried tov\art! him. Mv bear handed tho pigs over to the two wild hears. The three hears stood a moment together as if in consultation, arid then the two returned to the woods and mv bear trotted de Uberatoly back home. When I #ot there ho was just pulling tho latch string at the pon. lie went in and shut the door behind him. "My first impulse was to get my gun and blow the brains out of this petted: protege of mine, but after deliberation WHITE HORSE lL t, M.-i.-Oer r.mbirMi ttic Fllfine Mi!. v it. (j,» s «*,m Kmg-t.

About eight o'clock 'hat evening 1 ivont up in the haymow and took a position whore could look out into the pi# pen without danger of roy being discovered h.v any one who might come into the pen. Tho moon was shining bright, and every thing could be seen in the enclosure almost as plain as dav. I lav thorn more than two hours without any thing suspicious oc curring, arid not a sound had been heard except tho contented grunting of tho pigs It must havo been nearly eleven o'clock when I saw a movement among the pigs, and the bear £ot up and walk*-.*] quietly around for a minvito or two, stopping now and then a" if listen ing. 'Ahaf said I to myself 'Somo one is coming, and tho qui:'ted bear hears him." "I was thinking that :n a minute more I would undoubtedly have the dastardly thief in clutches, when 1 saw the bear step over to where a couple of the pi#s were sleeping, pick them both up, and tuck one under each arm. The gs merely gruntca good naturedly. and evidently kept right on sleeping. Tin bear walked to the door, pulled the latch string with his teeth, passed out, and pushed the door gently to again. I was eo dumbfounded that 1 couldn't move nor speak was actually momentarily parilyzod by this sudden and startling clearing up of tho mystery surrounling the disappearance of tuy pigs. When I recovered myself I hur ried down from tho mow and out of tho barn. I could see the bea half way across a field, striding at the top oi his speed toward a piec.o of woods about an eighth of a mile distant, 1 had no idea what disposition the bear, intended to make of the pigs, and 1 ran as fast as I could and reached the shadow of the woods by a short cut, and hurried along their edge, hoping ti head off the conscienceless robber and rescue his unsuspecting wciims if pos sible.

That night Igot two neighbors and we took our guns and hid in tho woods near tho spot where my treacherous bear had handed tho two pigs over to tho wild hoars. 1 was suro that the bear would fetch the last pig to them that night, but I was not pre pared for tho unheard-of heartlessness and ingratitude that be exhibited. We had been in the woods an hour or more when the two wild hears came slouching along and lay down not more than^thirty feet from where we were hidden. They remained very quiet, and at about the samo hour as my bear walked out, of the pen with the two pigs the night before 3 cently at his side. You can imagine i my feelings then. The two bea:-s aroso to go and get the plunder brought thus freely to t.heir hands, but they never i got it.
