Burt Aldrklge was the guide, iin.l a vrv fine one he made tco, He looked his part, as be was dres.d in a typical hunting .suit of fifty years ago with the blow iog hurn at his side, a ievolr-r girded around him and a 6 shooter Remington line on b ;s shoulder.

We were all a .our stand?, afraid to stir ai.d " breaMilesp, and peering through the dense laurel, could not see more than fifty or sixty feet I heard the bear coming break ing the brush, and Gar. AldrKlf e .; thinking he could fill anothJr stand to better advantage, and - head him off, came through tie thick brash and undergrowth "l but bruen hearing his movement turned from his course and went " a little below me and ran to wards Mr. Miller'6 stand. Within . a few minutes we heard Miller' ! Savage 2o" belching with such rapidity that the number of shots ;,C could scarcely be counted. . Thfo ' was at exactly t elve o'clock. The signal was soon given and we all went down to Miller's stand, and found that be had fhot the bear the first time in tbe top of the neck, just through the skin; the second shot was thru the left front leg near the body, breaking the bone. This, ever, did not stop the animal, and as he passed Mr. Miller he fired a gain, breaking the left hind leg, which brought the bear to the bear; to the ground. In firing the fmrth and fatal shot Miller" got .vithin fifteen feet of ihe bear and ent a bullet through its hear .vhich brought him dead on tin spot; ' Wpr.ls are inadequate U express the position, frame o' nind and countenance of Millei at tl.U time. Of course, it is neec ss to say that his voice tren- iled. ou know it is very exci ring to kill a bear! Tbe next importaut qnestioi vas how to g-t the bear t j the road.

After giving our wonderful ex perience and a regular reunion, not forgetting to take several pictures of the party, bear arid dogs, Bruin wan lail under tie sheltering rock which overhangs Wilson's Creek, just above the road, where we skinned him and placed him in the car, Miller, Gar Udridge and myself taking him to Pineola where he was dividrd and preparations made for tLe next day's hunt.

According to arrangements a nother drive was made, but tie dogs struck a cold trail, traihd a bear over the mountain net MoRay's, but the ground bei. g very dry they failed to rouse him consequently the party haJ to give iip for that day, but lu-foie leaving planned foi niiotbenliiv the f illowing clay to iiitt at tl: same ph'ue and hour. Ho on the morning of the Ttl NORTH dODWI WILL ' HOT SUFFER FROM Stt E SAYS PAGE NORTH CAROLINA WILL NOT SUF FER FROM 8UGAR SHORTAGE SAYS PAGE. Successful Experiments Convince Of flclals That Substitutes Will Large ly Relieve Situation Canning and Preserving May be Increased For mulas to Be Printed. Raleigh. No actual hardships Is go ing to result in North Carolina from the acute shortage of sugar which ex ists at this time and there is no rea son at all why the quantities of fruits that are canned and preserved should be lessened fn any degree. This Is the frankly expressed Opinion of State Food Administrator Henry A. Page, Conservation Chairman John Paul Lucas and Mrs. Jane S. McKimmon, Director of Home-Economics for the Food Administration and Head of Home Demonstration activities la North Carolina. Experlmeots Encourage. Food Administration pfflclals have been greatly concerned over the sugar shortage, and still are for that matter, but they have been greatly encourag ed and relieved during the past few days by the marked success of experi ments that have been conducted by Mrs. McKimmon and her wide-awake assistants in the use of cane syrup, sorghum, corn syrup, corn sugar and other procurable sugar substitutes. Mrs. McKimmon and her forces are working over time on these tests and are preparing tried and proven for mulas and recipes which, with accom panying suggestions, will be printed by the Food Administration In the form of a bulletin or leaflet in tbe im mediate future for distribution throughout North Carolina. The for mulas being prepared by Mrs. McKlnv mon will be verly largely used In other States also, Washington authorities made Into the ultimate product weeks or months from now when, it sugar la not available, there will certainly be available m considerable quantity of cane syrup, corn syrup, corn sugar, sorghum, or other substitute. Experiments have developed the fact thar for best results different sub stitutes must be used for different fruits or different products and the testa are for the purpose of deter mining which substitutes may be most satisfactorily used in each kind of fruit Mrs. M. M. Davis, of Mrs. Mo Kimmon's organization, Is using in her demonstrations samples .of apple, peach and pineapple marmalade mad with syrup instead of sugar, and con noisseurs agree that the product does not suffer at all in comparison with similar products containing sugar. ' Reports tp the agricultural forces and Food Administration her vindi cate that there is a large acroags of cane planted for syrup in North Caro lina this year and a large production of syrup Is anticipated..

It Is a recognized fact that sugar does Increase the payability ot can ned fruits but the product may be saved just as easily without the addi tion of sugar, according to Mrs. Mc Kimmon. In fact a large number of housewives have always canned with out sugar, adding sugar only when the fruit is opened and used. Peaches, ap ples, pears, berries, etc., which are de sired for marmalade, Jelly, Jam or preserves, may be canned now and La rue Shoulder.
