Wiliere could she be? She felt a

Pcor Babs, she had fallen down
one of the hay chutes and the horse
below was eating her hair.
She sc eimed ag .in and again but
her vo'C3 buzzed about lier ears.
Then she found that she was get

One day Abram's father concluded

They had not gene far when they
heard a crashing ahead of them.

looked, and there, standing with his
head lwgh in the air stood a beauti

lAbram was g.'eatly excited but
his fatlur had told him lie must not

was cruel to crippie animals.
As they were not near enough to
thi deer to shcot they concluded to
separate and try to get behind him.
They were to meet at an old tree
directly behind him.

as he made his way cautiously

so scared.
The growl came again a little loud
er this time, and Abram dropped his
gun and shinned up a tree.
When he had reached a place of
safety he looked down and at the
foot of the tree, looking at him,
stood a big black bear.
Abram knew that bears sometimes
climb trees, and could hardly resist
the teaiptihion to scream and let his
faher know of his danger, but he
thought of the deer which would be

bear turned and ran away.
As soon as it was out of sight
Abram scrambled down and ran to
see if his fa:her had killed the deer.
Now that his fright was over he
felt a 11 tie ashamed of not having
at le.'sst given the bear a shot.
He told his father about his adven
