with the risltiR sun, In a surprisingly
fearless and friendly manor, to Rather

Just before sundown Don and I paddled

order that there might be no delay in an
i.i riy statt next morning on our Journey
lp the river to bigger waters The lakc
was like a mirror and tloodcd with a
brilliant sunset thn streamed over the
distant hilltops. When well In the hay
we saw a big eight-pronged hack on a.
stretch 'if "and beach, the fringe of thick
rollage In the background making a rare
plrtuie, a striking tepi eduction ot a
1 rlut 1 bad often .nlinlicd. Noiselessly,
with never a word, we drove the canoe
sti. light fur him. and lie stood there, not
scenting in. bead high In air, with curl
osltv manifest In poise and look. Quiet
ly we dn w nearir and nearer, and when a
few toils away, the buck turned w 11 bout
the bast show of fear and with the great
est deliberation walked back Into the
scrub brush, Then th , canoe Moated
while we ill, u-'sed the picture we had
so n. and all about a dandy cann ra we
bad left hi camp, oon we iiutk cd a
slight agitation of the foliage and the
tips of a pair of eight-pronged cutlers ap
peared among the baves. and we knew

I Year aRu, when trappitn. was Uhm
' strlcted In the Province of Ontario, John
I Uennlson penetrated the wilderness In the
region of the "thousand lakes," nnd built
I a log ctibln on a nock of land dividing
portions of Great Opeomto lako. (Opeon-
bo Is an Indian word meanltiR narrows
' connecting two blR Iakvb Ho set hla
trapa. cleared a Itttlo land, nnd as tho
I years went b., children and Rrandehlldren
Rrew up around him When the buylns
1 seasons came, Trapper liennison followed
the blazed trails and water by-paths lead-
ins to the odse of clvllb.atlon, well lomied
with the pelts or the be-ivi-i
and the mink.
With no neighbors within .nany miles.
I except the wild animals of the woods
j Uennlson trappul on. glowing old and
gray. One day, using .1 dugout cutiue,
I he visited his numerous traps, for Opeoti
. ro is 1d mllei lone and liw many deep
bnvs. The old trapper hnd with him liU
eight.vear-old grandson who often .10
companliil Mm mi iii.i trips Nine nJles
from home, up under dark -horrs on
lilack Creek. 11 idg biar was found In
ono of the traps, and Uennlson undertook
to kill the animal with a club Just as
he hnd done In many cases in years gone
bv. Put that bear was unusually large
and fierce, and In .111 ingnardcd moment
ugly claws drew the old man Into an '
rubrae p mole vicious than the steel Jawsj
of the trap that gripped the hind leg of
the Infuriated beast. Well knowing that I
he had tended Ills last trap, Dnnnlson j
ordered his grandson to go home, and th- ,
terrified little fellow, half dead with
fright, lied to the canoe with the Here'
growls ringing In his ears, and managed j
to lltid his way back to the old log house
In a faraway section of the lake.
With the elght-vear-old guide to lead 1
them, the family made a brave attempt I
to tlnd nnd aid the old man, but darkness
of the fure.st night had blotted out head 1
lands and trails, and It was not until
the llRht of early morning had come that
tile stricken members of the Uennlson
family reached the scene. The bear was
still In the trap, alive and tierce, and 111

( IIL'ltCII UNION IN VKHMOXT.
(Prom the St. Albans Messenger.)
Advocates uf church union .n ermont
would have been gratified could thev all
have listened to the Rev Pr.iser Metzper
in hU talk In thh city last evening. It Is
1. common sense question, when some
change Is being proposed, to ask, "Is It
necessary'.'" 51 r. Mctzger disposed of
thut phase of the controversy In a most
emphatic manner and he even went So
lar as to declare that church union was
tiot only necessary, If the whole benefit
of the church were to be derived in many
communities, but that It was absolutely
essential If Protestantism were to be kept
ullve In many of the smaller places.
It has been noticed along the border
counties of Vermont that French Cana
dlan have been coming across the inter
natlrnal hoi ndi'i line and purchasing
forms. They have bought In somo of the
best farms In the district, anil right
around .St. Albans this fact has teen
noted They make the farms pay, by one
way or another, mostly by good hard
work. They supplant the former Yankee
owners, who Ir, most eases were Protest
ants, and they natuially attend thi
iiureh of their birth, for which there Is
i.bsoliit l; no cause for complaint. Thnv
are Just as deilra.de citizens In every
siii.se of the word und It would b" doing
