And this is tbe delightful way in which the president hunts bear. He did this down South a year or two ago and all tbe bears wisely left tbe country before he got there, so tbat be did not get a chance to shoot at a sin. gle bruin. Tbis may be tbe presidential way of bunting bears but it is surely not tbe way in which the old-timers bagged this shy and wise ani mal. Ga'esburg Register.
