re a inith Between a Big Bear and
While at Batesville last week the
writer was told of a genuine mix-up all
between Edward Brown, a worthy and th
well-to-do colored man living 10 miles mi
west of Batesvillb, near the big Talla- ye
hatchie bottm, and a 600-pound black dr
bear, eays the Atlanta Constitution. It
The incident happened on Tuesday of so
last week. The negro's corn field is br
near the bottom, and for two weeks ch
past several bears had made night vis- in,
its thereto to partake of the delicious pr
roasting ears. Brown is an old bear th
hunter, and in 'his day has killed many tr
losene of them. He built a scaffold in
the corn field near where the bears
entered, and Monday night, with his'a h
trupty gun, he took his stand thereon, 'h
intending to bag Bruin while devour
ing his corn. Now the thrilling part in
comes, and boys who love to read hair- !e
breadth escapes from wild and fero- ;a
sious beasts must prepare to hold their it
breath. The bear came on schedule r1
time and started straight for the ne- ir
gro's shelter. Brown saw that be was Ib
a tremendously large one, and tried k
to make good his aim. He only suc- p
eeded In wounding him badly, how- (h
ever, and the bear ran off to the woods. Ii
Brown called his sons to bring the (
dogs and a fresh gun, and woon the
dogs had the monster'bayed in a brush t
thicket within the field. The moon
shone brightly, and he could see the
struggle the dogs were having with
the game, so to make short work of it
he rushed in to get a dead shot, when
Bruin turned on him with the ferocity
of a Texas cyolone. The negro was
knocked down, tis arm crushed to a
splinters, and he was badly bitten and a
otherwise used up. Brown's oldest son 6)
saw the predicament of his father and il
rushed in, grabbed the rifle and ended b
Bruin's checkered and corn-eating -:
career on the spot. The bear weighed I
aver 600 nounds.

A. Mexican freighter whose route at

Juan Riviera has many tales to tell of to
bloodcurdling adventures he has had

though considered to be as truthful as a

some of his stories would indicate that
he occasionally departs from the path *
of rectitude or else the road he travels
must be a veritable paradise for hunt
ers. One if his reminiscences is as
follows: "While passing from Chi- A
huahua to Tucson, some fifteen years i
ago, I encountered a great herd, prob
ably a thousand, of antelope, and this
accounts for the loss of my forefinger,
which you see is lacking two joints.
This herd was not far from a box
canyon, having a very narrow entrance t
when I first saw it. By riding to and t
fro, I succeeded after an hour in get
ting them to enter the canyon, but as
the entrance was narrow I could get
them in only one at a time. After los- r
ing considerable time I got them all P
in. To keep them cooped up, I began
to pile up stones at the opening, in- o
tending to leave the antelopes there P
and notify my friends of the catch.
While at work the antelopes suddenly a
turned on me and began to rush out. V
There was not time enough to bar the F
