COW DEFENDED HER CALP.
Pnt a Hungry Rear to I li«ht After a
The calf, having nursed sufficiently
and feeling his baby legs tired of tlie
weight they had not yet learned to car
ry, laid himself down. On tills the
cow shifted her position. She turned
half round and lifted her head high.
As she did so a sense of peril was borne
in upon her tine nostrils. She recog
nized It instantly. With a snort of
anger she sniffed again, then stamped
a challenge with her fore hoofs and
leveled the lance points of her horns
toward the menace. The next moment
her eyes, made keen by the fear of love,
detected the black outline of the bear's
head through the coarse screen of the
Juniper Without a second's hesitation
she tiling up her tall, gave a short bel
low and charged.
The moment she saw herself detected
the bear rose upon her hind-quarters;
nevertheless, she was In a measure sur
prised by the sudden blind fury of the
attack. Nimbly she swerved to avoid
it, aiming at the same time a stroke
with her mighty forearm, which, if it
had found its mark, would have smash
ed her adversary's neck. But as she
struck out, in the act of shifting her
position, a depression of the ground
threw her off her balance. The next
Instant one sharp horn caught her
slantingly In the Hank, tipping its way
upward, while the mad impact threw
her upon her back.
Grappling, she had her assailant's
head anil shoulders In a trap and her
gigantic claw cut through the flesh
and sinew like knives; but at the des
perate disadvantage of her positiou she
could Inflict no disabling blow. The
cow, on the other hand, though mutilat
ed and streaming with blood, kept
pounding with her whole massive
weight and with short, tremendous
shocks crushing the breath from her
Presently, wrenching herself free, the
cow drew off for another battering
charge, and as she did so the bear
hurled herself violently down the slope
and gained her feet behind a dense
thicket of bay shrub. The cow. with
one eye blinded, glared around for her
In vain, then, in a panic of mother ter
