He slavered aronu'l the fire; surveyed the pool of sirup pu the ground, but seemed to have no fur ther appetite for it. and then departe l as abruptly as be o ime. It was some time before Farley and Scliultz oould muster up sulticii-nt eour a e lo descend from the tree, believing that the bear wat still hiding close bi. When they cntere I the tent, the Tghl of a pine knot disclosed to their horrified ca the form of poor Wilson literallv torn to pieces.
