5ETTER THAN ALL MEDICINE E BEARS OF YELLOWSTONE 1 The bear as a playful holdup man who rifles tourists' automobiles and breaks into hotels for food is one of the uncertain quantities of Yellow stone Park, says Edmund Heller, the big game hunter, who has just re utrned from several months in the park studying the wild life of larger animals for the Roosevelt wild life experiment station connected with ftys in Virginia City, Nov.'. will, Mark ' the Scho1 of Forestry a Syracuse I ... .- .i - .

Concentration follows Jonsecraitlon naturally and with joy ather than hard effort. Forbes Mag-zlne. ith Urigham Young, to iv in the j graphing them during the past sum mer, and thinks they are by far the most interesting things in the park, more so than the geysers and hot springs. A geyser is only a geyser after you have seen it a few times, says Mr. Heller, but a bear is a source of infinite humor to those who study him. Big game in the park is increas ing, with the exception of mountain sheep and antelopes, he says. Much of his report will be devoted to methods of preventing the graceful sheep and antelope from disappear ing altogether from the Yellowstone. It is not their natural habtat, for in winter,, unless restricted, they would move south into the Dakotas, he' says. As it is they stay in the park, many freezing to death. On the other hand, moose are increasing rapidly, and elk are so numerous that they can be heard bugling all day long as they charge across the bottoms. They number at least 10, 000. Mr. Heller said he frequently saw large herds with bulls driving their cows and trumpeting defiance at the world. Mule deer are also in creasing fast, and beavers fill the streams. The greatest change in the Yellow stone in the last Jew years, however, is in the greatly increased number of tourists, accordng to Mr. Heller. The automobile -and the war are both largely responsible, although, oddly enough, most of the tourists are Westerners, to whom wild country is no novelty. The park is filled with camps at which automobile parties may stop for the night under the supervision of a ranger to see that they do not fire the woods. The bears are a constant source of interest to these tourists. If cars are left a moment, a fat, black bear may soon be found pawing the seat and upholstery to pieces in search of food. The bears are fairly tame, be cause they are never molested. They have regular feeding places where the waste from the hotels is dumped, and the tourist watches from behind a screen. "They come loping in at regular hours, often a mother bear bringing her cubs. She will iput the cubs up a tree and tell them to stay there. If they come down while she is feed ing, she runs back and cuffs them into the tree again, just like naughty children. Bears often go iback after a meal, climb a tree in full view of people and go to sleep. "They are funny things. They walk like a man when they stand up. When they are in a tree they often sit like a man, with legs dangling on each side of a branch and clutching the trunk in front of them. "One bear followed me around for days, trotting at my heels like a dog. We called him 'the kodak bear.' He was as tame as a kitten. There are about sixty grizzlies in the park now, although they are not seen so often as the others. You should see the tblack and cinnamon bears run when a grizzly comes up to the feed ing place behind the hotel. They scatter in every direction and take to j the trees, for a grizzly, although he can run like a horse, can't climb trees. "The deer and the elk also come up to the houses to be fed, and some times deer can .be fed from the hand. One old elk is called 'Ash-Can Pete' because when he comes looking, for food he goes around tipping over all the ash cans. He has been there for years. Everybody knows him." The buffaloes, which seemed in danger of extermination a few years ago, are now increasing so rapidly that there are two large herds of them in the park, says Mr. Heller. Some of the bull buffaloes grow to great size, weighing as much as 2800 pounds. Most of the moose are around the Yellowstone Lake, and their numbers are increasing fast. The hear census stays about station ary because a few bears wander out of the park every spring in search of food and are easily killed iby any one with a rifle. The coyotes are also dis appearing. ' Mr. Heller thinks some of them should be preserved so that tourists can hear them howl. St. Louis Glohe-Democrat.
