While walking alone along the foot of the Mountains, Mr. O'Hanlon's attention was attracted by a noise in a clump of bushes about 50 yards to the left of him, thinking that the noise was caused by some small animal, he continued his walk up the mountain. Having walked a short distance further,1 Billy again heard a similar noise right behind him. Looking around he saw, what would make the blood freeze in most anyone's veins, a great big grizzly bear. The bear was 1 I so glad to see Billy that he raised up on its hind legs and held out his paws to welcome him. Mr. O'Han ton did not take kindly to Mr. Bear's welcome, so he started to run. Know ing that a bear could very easily catch a person on the level or while running down hill but not up hill so he started to run up the mountain, with the bear close behind him. At last Mr. O'Hanlon reached the very top of the mountain, looking around he saw the bear not 20 yards away and he was looseing no time. 1 What was lie to do, to stay was sure I death, and to run down again would mean death also, he could not climb l any higher, as he was on the very top f now. It was a critical moment, but Billy kept cool, and this accounts for his collectiveness when he sprang foreward and seized a large rock and started it rolling down the mountain - toward the bear. The rock hit the bear with tremendous force, which . made him feel homesick so he turned i around and started down the moun tain while Billy started down the otherside. It was a close call for Mr. O'Hanlon and lie has not quite recov ered yet, but he thinks he will be able to be around in a few days again. He may then be found at the Hotel l Graves where lie will repeat the exciting adventure to anyone who does not take THE NEWS. The facts of the above writeup was handed us by R. H. Holley.
