A Bear Story
To the Editor of the Alexandria Gazette :
I have been very much entertained by the
bear stories recently published in the Ga?
zette and send this of mine to be put ia
compatittoo with them:
A great big old bear that had lived r li bis
life in the mountain? of Virginia in an old
hollow tree for a hou-e, aud eaten nothing
bat roots, ants and honey that be robbed the
bees of, and though fat, aud had lived a
lorjg time in that way, became discontented
and concluded that he must have a finer
house and nicer things to eat. Bo he left bis
old home and roamed about in search of a
new one. He was ashamed to travel in the
day time so he slept all day and traveled a!
night. He bad Dot feu mi much and was
getting hungry and cold, when he saw a
great big white bouse with a ligbt shining
through the window. "AH right," says he
and so be went around it, pawing and paw
ing 8gainst it until at last he found a soft
place and the door flew open, then he walk
ed in and found a nice warm room with
gncd lire burning in a great b'g stove,
"This is the very kind of house I want but I
must have something to eat, for I am hun?
gry," so be pawed at tbe door of the side
board and when tbe door opened he found
in it a great big ham of baon, a great big
plate of bread and a great big can of mo
lases. He sat right down and didn't
atop eating until all was gone aod
be had licked all the p'ates and diBhes
that were lying about everywhere on tbe
sbelveE. You tee dame AgneB alway? put
tbem away from tbe dinner and supper
without washing, saying ibat one wes'siug a
day was enough for people, plates and ev
erytbing else. When be bad finished eas?
ing he laid down before the fire ard weut
sound as'eep. Just befcre day, dame Ag.
nes shook the old man and told him to "get
up and put some wood on the fire." H
was a sleepy-headed old fellow and did not
stir until she bad shaken and shaken him,
and called bim over and over agalo, "a lazy
good-for-notbiDg old thing." At last be got
uu und eaylng, "when a man marries, his
troubles beidn," stumbled atiout In the dark
and found tbe wood, but when bo went to
put it on tbe fire, he fell over something and
B ruck bis bead against the stove; tben he
was mighty mad aod rv mtn- need abusing
I is wife and atking her, ''What did you bun
d o up all your old clothes for ami put (hem
before tbe fire for me to b'.umble over. I
won't put a stick of wood on." So he start
ed bbok to bed (tbie limes <-t pit.g very higb)
when bis foot landed right oo the middle of
the bear and the bear nave a g'owl Tbe?j
be knew eomething was wrong and rusbiog
out ot the house, n*-ver stopped running u:
til he got to Sim'e an1 the D tccr'a hous- ,
woke them nr? and the party caoio back
with degs and guns. Dame Avne* h -r..<!
bim slam the door as he went out und ho -
Isred to bim, "8;of:! stop! Y;iu are loc
good for nothing ?o live." A' lost, fiuriitiw
h? was gone sure enough, she got up atd
went to put the wood on for herBelf. Whtn
sbegot near tbe stoveshe, too, b unbied cv r
the bear and fell sprawling. Tbe bear, eiv
ing two or three big grunts, jumped at h- r,
but she wa=> too quick for bim; up ehe jump?
ed and off ehe ran up stairs like, lightning
and (dammed thedoor in tbe beat'.< face, jus
aB he was catching hold of tho end of tier
nigh'gown, and all he go! was juet a little
piece of it. Tbe bear waB mighty mal this
time, but bo thought, "She wont Btay up
there very long, and will eoon be coming
back to gat her clothes and things," so he
laid down again to wait for her. About
this time the men came, aod peeping
in the window saw him lying down
before tho fire. The old man said; "There
he is and my wife is safe; I almcst wish he
had eaten her up, she abused me bo."
Qaickly the men commenced ehooting at
tbe old bear, and wi-hing he had never
left his borne in tbe old hollow tree, he fell
down and, with a loud gruut, died. Tbe
men tben came iD, dragged him out and
dressed bim to eat?he weighed upward of
400 ponods. JaBt as the old man was going
to call hi-- wife down to cook some of him
for breakfast, she hallooed oat "Come here
and get this pan to put the fat io, and be
sure yon get all of It, for I want to make
lard of it and I don't want any foolishness
about it." Bbe Bee
