VJ PLUCK O.E CALLIE MItEE The Presence of Mind and General ship of a Blue Grass Belle. She Oarried a Child Three Miles and Outwitted a Black Bear. :'hen She Took Down a Winchester and Laid Mr. Bruin Low-A Try ing Adventure. Miss Callie McGee of this place, says an America, Ky., correspondent of the Cincin nati Enquirer, had an experience a few days ago that she will not forget and in which she showed rare courage and presence of mind in the face of the greatest danger. America is a small hamlet situated in Lee county, and in the wilds of eastern Ken tucky, and consists of two dwelling-houses, a country-store and a postoffiee. For the last month Mise Callie has been teaching school in the "Bear Creek" dis trict, which lies on the waters of Bear creek. In going to and returning from school each week she is obliged to pass over Bear Wallow mountain-so called by the early settlers on account of the great num ber of bears that formerly made it a resting place in their migrations from the Chimney mountains to the Cumberland. For several years past, however, no bears have been seen, and the inhabitants have long ceased to apprehend any danger from these ani mals. Last Saturday Miss Callie started for her home for the purpose of passing the Sabbath with her mother. She was accom panied by her little neice, who is only three years old. The road between Rear Creek valley and America is lonely even for a miountain road, and from the base of the mountain on the one side to the foot on the other-a dis tance of three miles-there are no signs of human habitation. While slowly climbing the mountain on the farther side from this place the child trampled upon a sharp thorn, and child-like she screamed in her agony. While Miss Callie was trying to pacify her she was suddenly startled by a rustling of the bushes at one side of the road, and upon looking around discovered a large black bear stepping slowly and cau tiously into the road about forty yards in her rear. For a moment Miss McGee stood gazing at the bear, too terrified to seek safety. Then catching up the child in her arms she fled rapidly up the steep mountain side. Casting a terrified glance backward over her shoulder she was appalled to see the bear break into a lumber gallop and start in pursult. The child, fright ened at the unusual actions of her aunt,Uwas screaming at the top of its voice, and the bear apparently redoubled his efforts to catuh them. Panting and gasping for breath she at length reached the top of the mountain almost exhausted, and upon looking back discovered the bear still in pursuit and rapidly decreasing the distance between them, being now soarcely twenty yards behind her. Occasionally the bear gave an angry snort, as if enraged at being balked of his intended prey. His heavy, labored breath ing was now distinctly audible to her ear, anid she realized that her strength was fail ing, and that it was ilutoseible for her to continue her present pace much longer. Clasping the kchild still more closely to her bosom she made one more desperate effort to out-foot her pursuer. While continuing her flight the child's hat, with its gay rib bones nd flowers, becoume accidentally dis arranged and fell to the grouna. After running a hundred yards or more Miss Mc Gee venureqd to look back once more, and her relief may be imagined when she saw the bear biting and tearing at the hat lying on the road. Mis's McGee said that at light of this she instantly recovered presence of mind, and coolly began to caloulate on her chances for escape and her best method of procedure, She knew that the nearest house in which she could seek safety was still nearly two and a half miles distant, and the chances of meeting any one able to assist her on that lonely mountain road were very few. She knew that she could not keep up her present rate of speed much longer, so she moderated her gait, although she still made good time. She had gained perhaps 200 yards on the bear when, upon looking around, she dis covered him again starting in pursuit, hav ing succeeded in demolishing the hat. She now rapidly proceeded to divest the child of its eanque and threw it down in the road. Upon reaching the spot in the road where the garment was lying the bear again stopped and proceeded to destroy it before continuing his pursuit. Miss McGee made good use of the time lost by the bear, and when he again started in pursuit she was a good distance ahead. As he again neared her she threw the child's dress down into the road, and again the attention of the bear was attracted and a few precious mo ments gained. She continued this method, coolly waiting each time until the bear had nearly over taken her, then dropping some article of wearing apparel into the road, until the child was entirely divested of clothing; then she began upon herself. She was al ready within less than a mile of a dwelling and began to feel confident of her ability to delay the animal until she reached it. Her gloves were first sacrificed and gained a few moments' respite from pursuit. Her hat went next, then basque, and last of all her dress skirt. The latter succeeded in holding the attention of the bear until she reached the house of John Miller and was once again in safety, although almost des titute of clothing. The bear, attracted by the squealing of some pigs in a pen near the road, made no effort to effect an entrance into the house, but left the road and went to the pen for the purpose of securing a pork dinner. Mr. Miller was not at home and the bear's chances for securing a young porker seemed to be good, when Miss McGee took down a Winchester that was above the door, and, despite the entreaties'of Mrs. Miller, the plucky teacher proceeded to the ren. As the bear saw her approaching he reared upon his hind legs and stood ready for fight. Mica Callie quickly brought her gun Into position and fired, the ball passing through the animal's heart and he fell dead. lie proved to be a "whopper" and tipped the beam at 2871/ pounds. Miss McGee is naturally somewhat proud of her anhievement, and we all here in the mountalns are proud of her and are talking of presenting her with a rifle as a alight token of our appreciation of the coolness and courage she displayed under circunm stances which were sufficient to shake the nerves of the boldest of men.
