I have read about the powerful muscles lr> the arms of African gorillas, but none compare with those In the arms and shoulders of big grizzly bears. I have seen a grizzly bear with one forepaw shot Into uselessness pull Its own 1100 pounds of meat and bone up precipices and perform feats of muscle that trained ath llete* could aot de. navei Mem grizzly bears carrying the carcasses of pigs that must have weighed seventy pounds sevrral miles across a mountain side' to their lair, and I have heard hunters tell of having cows knocked down as if by a thunderbolt with one blow from the forepaw of a bear, "Three summers ago I Fpent the season in the coast mountains up in Monterey county, and one moonlight night 1 saw a grizzly bear in the act of carrying a dead cow homo to her cub. I had a position on the moun tainn side where I could see every move ment of the bear in V.\e sparsely timbered valley below me. Thi critter carried the dead cow In her forepuws for at least three miles, across jagged, sharp rocks ten feet high, over fallen logs, around thij rocky mountain sides, where even a jackass could not get a foothold, to a narrow trail up the steep mountain. She never stopped to rest a moment, but went right along. I follow ed, and just about half a mile from tha beast's lair I laid her low. The helfei" weighed at least 200 pounds, and the bea» about 450."—Chicago Inter Ocean. A HEAVY HANDICAP It Is but a Spanish custom. It was not the youngster's fault That he never had the training Which would help him earn his salt. And he couldn't raise a protest When to christen him they came And they solemnly afflicted The poor Infant with the name "Alfonso XIII, Leon Ferdinand Marl* James Isidore Pascal Antonio." And it's not at all surprising That In business of state And In military matters All his people come too late For it's likely to occasion An embarrassing delay When they rally up their cohort 3 And they stop to shout "Hooray For Alfonso Xni Leon Ferdinand Marl* James Isidore Pascal Antonio." —Washington Star.
