A Waidiinitton Bear-Hunt.
Karlv oue morning in May a black
boy. going to his work, was passing
along the Pierce's Mill road, neat
Washington. Paying little attention
to what was liefore him, he suddenly
found himself confronted by a large
grizzly U-ar. The boy did what al
most any one would have done undei
the same circumstances; he turned
and ran as fast as his legs could carry
him. Luckily, the bear did not fol

The news soon spread that a grizzly
bear had escaped from the Zoological
(iarden. It would be hard to tell
how the news got abroad, because
every one was afraid to go out-of-doors.
People barricaded their doors
and windows, and kept their children
in the house. The schools in the
neighborhood were without pupils.
The superintendent of the Zoolog
ical (iarden heard, at any rate, that
his lost bear had been seen on the
Pierce's Mill road, and accompanied
bv several well-armed volunteers, he
started in pursuit of the animal.
They came upon him not far from
the place where the boy had seen
him. The bear regarded his pur
suers indifferently. The superin
tendent was led to hope that he might
be captured alive.
"Let's surround him," said the
chief of the hunters.
They proceeded to form a ring
about the grizzly. This proceeding
infuriated him at once, and he made
a ferocious attack uijoii one of the
Put before he could reach the man,
all the other hunters rushed bravely
to the assistance of their threatened
comrade; whereupon the grizzly, see
ing himself outnumbered, turned tail
with a growl, and ran to a tree near

perfect confidence that everything is
