Downfall of Old Jake Q
A Tale of a Pike County Bear that O
Had a Reputation. 9
New York Sim.
"I wns up In 1'lko county once looking tip n
timber tract for our firm , " said a retired
lumber dealer of New York , "iuul was sil
ting ono morning In tlio tavern at Lord's
Valley , tnlkliiR with Hed Drake , a. noted
woodsman , when n man came running In ,
very much excited.
" 'Hod , ' said ho to Drake , 'Just come out
nuil look at It ! Come niul look ! H'H a foot
and a half long , If It's an Inch , and It ain't
a hair scant o" nine Inches wide ! '
" 'What ain't ? ' oald Ked. 'A mule's col
lar ? '
" 'A mule's collar , ' shouted the man. 'No !
The track o' the bear that went along hero
sumo tlitio last night.
"A bear track wasn't anything strange to
sec In that part of Pike county In those
days and Isn't yet , I guess , but a bear truck
of the dimensions this one was alleged to bo
was something unheard of oven In 1'lke
county nnd Hod Drake hurried nut to see It.
I followed , as n matter of course. The bear
had crossed the road not 100 yards from the
tavern , going southwest , toward the High
Knob , and where lie had stepped from the
road at the eclco of the woods upon the
previously untrodden snow wore the Impres
sions of his feet. The footprints were
scarcely of the size the excited Informant
had reported them to be , but they were
enormous. Hcd Drake took out his foot-
rule and measured one of them.
" ' 'Lovon and a half b' six. " he exclaimed.
'It's him. It'a him , t > y fury ! Thorp wasn't
never no other bear had n hook on him like
that. It's Old .lake. mire. s sap Ml run ! "
" ' 1'ooh ! ' ejaculated Sim Lord , who had
come on thi > scene. 'You're rinnln' wild ,
lied ! Maybe tills b'ar mowt be Old Jake's
twin brother , hut how can ho ho Old Jake ?
If you think back you'll remember that
Jakti Henaloy killed Old Jalci * ten years ago ,
and a hear that's boon a ghcMt ten years ain't
llablo to have heft enough on him to sink
his foot aa dorp nj that In tlio snow
'specially as hid foot's darn nigh as big act a
snowhlioc ! '
" Make Iknsloy thought ho killed Old
Jake , ' replied lied , 'but I said at tht- time ,
and I've said so ever scnce , that ho didn't
kill him , 'cordln' to my Idee , and I say so
now ! This hero track Is Old Jake's , and
where he's ever been all these years , or
where he's come from now , I don't know ,
nor I don't earc , hut I know this Is him ,
and I know that he's headed straight for
Shades o' Death swamp ! If lie gits there It
won't he my fault ! '
"lied at once began hasty preparation ! )
for following the trail of the big bear. I
was eager to have part In the hunt for this
bear , nnd told Hed that I guessed I would go
along with him.
" 'This ain't goln'i'tolbe no rabbit hunt ! '
said lied. " *
"I nald I ki.cw It.
" 'I s'pnso you know tllo snow Is somothln'
like two foot deep In tho'woods ? ' said lied.
"I uald 1 ki.ew the diiow waa pretty deep.
" 'Shades o' Death' ' swamp Is betwixt
thirty and forty miles from hero , ' said Hed.
"I didn't know tlmt/'biU said It was all
" 'Do yon know why"lhey call It Shades
o' Death swamp ? ' | asked Hcd.
"I said no. <
" "Cause It's thebig.'swamp that lots o'
people llyln' from thu .Wyoming massacre
got stuck nnd lent In , and died there , ' nal
Hed , 'and I've heerd It's ha'ntcd by thel
" 'I want to go on this bear hunt , all ih
came , ' said 1. ,
" "Well , you kin Kpr.sajd Ucd. 'Nobody
nln't lilnderln' of yau''a8 , I know 'of , b
they ? ' . .
"It was court week at the county seat
and about every ono from that part of th
country waa there , either as Juror , wltnca
or litigant. Otherwise , more than Hc <
nnd I would have followed'tho trail of Oh
Jake , for Hed Insisted that It was Old Jake's
trail. The track wca fresh and the anew
wasn't near as deep as Hcd had said It was
but It was deep enough.
" 'Jako Is soniothln * like five hours' nheac
of us , ' paid Hed , asvo struck out on the
trail , and as we went ho gave me the his
tory of the bear.
"The flwt tl'at any one In the county evci
lieard of him was ono spring , twelve years
liefore. when Meson Custard , a farmer llv
Ing near the Uimhktll road , In the Delaware
valley , dashed Into Illll Place's raftsmen's
tavern , a mile down the road , shouting :
" 'There's a hear up to my place oleanln
out my bee skips ! He's more than a bear
There's enough of him for two boars ! He's
as big as Old Jake ! '
"Old Jake was an ox that Custard owned
'amous ' for Hi size. Everybody from IMact-'s
uirrled to Custard's with guns and dogs
lot-foot to bag a bear that could compart
In sl/o w.tli the ox Old Jake. When they
; ot thcro , though , thu bear was gone. He
lad upset every bee hive on the premlaes
ootcd the honey , and taken up his march
according to the frightened women folks
jack over the hills toward Porter's pond
Men followed him nil day , hut not onu got
sight of him. and the chasewns nuanilnnnii
The fame of the bear that MIMOII C'tman
said was as bit ? as his big ox spread rapidl >
hrough the country and the bear came tu
) o known aa Old JaK'e.
"Jake Hensley was therefore not at all
MirprUol when ho saw the bear fooling
around hla pig pen , but hcJ was surprised at
the bear's size. Jake Hcnsloy wasn't an old
nan , and ho wasn't yet the famous hunter
that ho bcjamo In later years , but he had
CVCID them killed bears by the score , and of
ill sizes and shades. He had also killed
withers and wolves a-plenty , but among all
ho great wild denizens of the forest that
10 had laid low with his rifle this bear
hat had cast a longing and withal a do-
crmlned eye on the Inmates of Hciifley's
ilg pen that morning had no co.ua ! for size
or formidable appearance.
" 'That bear Is Old Jake ! ' said Hunter
icnslcy. 'and his name fltohlm ! ' for Hensley
enow Mason Custard's big ox.
'Tho huge bear didn't show any particular
sign that Heiislc-y's presence on the scene
ended to Interfere with his Intentions on
ho pig pen. On the contrary , ho went right
on with his preparations for butchering a
> lg and lugging It away.
" 'Hlamed If 1 don't kill you now , Jest for
'our Impudence , " said Hensley , and ho ran
nto the house and got his gun.
" 'And what do you think ? ' paid Hed
) rake. In his nnriyufvp of Jake Bcnsley's
experience with the lilg , bear. 'Jake had to
ock two bullets Into , the old cuss before the
t'ar got It through him that Jake objected
o his biitchcrln' thcTu pigs ! Sceln' that
Jake meant It. the U'ar'went slouchln' away ,
lowlln' and blcedltr , ' critd was out o' sight
n the woo-ls 'ford > 'JAko could load and
ock more lead Into him. '
"Jake Heiislcy wa n't > ln the habit of sec-
ng anything that he had tent lead Into walk
iway , and the pcrslstl'nyo on the part of tlila
> ear In not ilylng'afto'r having two of hl
mllots In Its body wa * a greater surprise
o him than the trcnienitous tslzo of the bear
lad been. He got his dogs and a neighbor
r two. and followed the bloody trail of the
ear that had done thq unprecedented thing
f not dropping dead wicn Jake llensloy had
mllod the trigger ou.ilt. The trail led
lircugh the fresh snow to a dense swamp
wo miles distant. Do What they might they
ould not rout this bear out.
" 'That shows that he's dead , ' Bald Jake
icnsley. 'Course he's dead. Two o' my
nillcts In him ? How can he help but be
cad ? '
"Ills companions agreed with him , and
ho party returned home , gaiUflod that Old
1 Jake , the mammoth bear ot Plko county ,
I would be heard of no more , and mournlnp
l.ccausu they couldn't recover his huge car-
c.-us from the Impenetrable depths of the
" 'I w.n roniln * along by there jtvst about
that time , ' said Ucd IJrake , 'and they tolled
me about their klllln' of Old Jako. nnd his
dyln' so fur In the swamp that they couldn't
git him out. I took a look at that b'ar'a
track , and 1 own up to It now that the Rl c
of It skocrt me. I measured ono of the heel
I-even nnd a half b' six ! " I hollora.
' "Thunder and stars ! " eays I. " Lovcn
nnd a half b' slxl lie's the daddy of all
b'ars ! " ' says I.
" 'You mean ho waa the daddy of all
b'ars , ' says Jake Honsley , nhowln' up a lectio
huffy , lid a takln' It from the way I said It
that I lud uii'ldco the b'ar hadn't give up
the ghnst , spite o' them two bullcta o' Jake's ,
" 1 didn't say nothln' Jest then , but I
took a rmv over that b'ar trail clean to the
swamp. I reckoned on the stren'th o' the
tracks when they started from Jake's , and
the stren'th of 'em when they wrnt out o'
sight In the swamp. And I flggorcd on the
way It sploshed tha enow when It started
from Ilenslcy's. and on the way It sploshed
the BIIOW on the edge o' the swamp. Addln'
It all tip. an' thlnkln' over the answer to
the sum , I went back to Jake's.
" ' "Jake , " says I , "that b'ar Is the daddy
ot all b'ars. "
" ' "Is ! " says Jake. "You mean was ! "
" ' "Jacob , " says I , " 1 mean Is ! "
What ! " saya Jako. "With two bullets
In him. and me that put 'em there ? "
The satpo , " nays 1. "That b'ar alnt
no Higher dead than ho was whMi ho started
In to do your hog-killln' for you " says I.
"Ilo may bo a lectio stlffer In the J'lnts "
saya I , "and the chances Is that he'll have
to lay up 11 spell for repairs , " says I , "but
old J.ike U on the taps yet , and one o' theae
days he'll bust out again somo'rs. maybe
bigger and Impudenter than ever , " say 1.
" 'Jake llen lsy didn't like that , not a bit ,
and mo and him hain't hen over-thick ncnco
then. Uui I said so thru , and I've slid so
ever scnce , and I say so now. And why
thouldn't I say fa now ? Here's Old Jake's
track , 'loven and a half b' six , right before
my eyes , nln't It ? Maybe we'll hnve to Toiler
that tinck clean to Shades o' Death swamp.
I'd rather not , but even If we do , I'll show
Jalro Hensley that Old Jake's hones ain't
layln' back there In that Hwamp o' lirntdcy'a
thcs ? ton years and hotter ! I do'i't know
where he's been all these years , and I don't
care. He's plkln' right on ahead of us
now , anyhow , and from the looks of the
way he's waddlln' In the snow Jest now , J'vo
nn Idc-o he'll lay by for a rest some'rs , If he
ain't doln1 of It already. Hope so. anyhow. '
"Wo followed the trail rovon miles , and
then It entered a big laurel patch and was
lost In the depths of It. Ucd took the two
dogs , and , leaving me on the side of the
swamp whro the bear wont In , started to
make a circuit of the patch to see whether
It had 'laid by' In the swamp. The laurel
path was a mile In circumference.
" 'I' I nln't back bore In throo-quartcrs of
an hour , ' paid lied , 'foller my trail. '
"llul ho was back In less than twenty
minutes , returning on his trail.
" 'The ol.l chap has gone out on t'othei
side , ' said he. 'He must a heerd us 01
winded us. for his tracks la so fresh that
they're warm ylt. '
"We took .up the trail on the other side ,
the uneasiness nnd anxiety of the dogs show
ing how recently the game bad passed that
way. The dogs belonged to George Mc
Millan , a mighty hunter from the head
water. ) or the Lacawach , 'way up In Wayne
county. McMillan was Just then In that
part of Pike county , but hunted only on
Saturday ! ' . He was teaching school over on
the Pa'.ipack , and Saturday was his only day
off. Hcd Drake bad the use of his dogs.
" 'Sorry George ain't along , ' eald Ited.
'He'd help us a powerful lot artor this
trcmeiiJUH b'ar. Old Jake ain't more'n
foity minutes ahead of us. but he kin put a
bin swath betwixt us and him In that time.
Hi's had four hours' snooze In them laurels ,
and bo's frcah , and ho keeps p'lntid for the
Shade * o' Death. Maybe tlio Shades o'
Death 'a n lectio nlghor 'n be thinks. '
"Two miles further on the trail disap
peared Into another swamp. U was a small
ono , and we soon found that the bear had
passed through It without stopping and was
making for the high hills beyond the swamp.
It led us to the base of the ridge , when It
turned abruptly to the left , , and followed
for half a mile along the foot of the hill.
Thcie the bear had stopped and atrlpped
from root to the drat branches the bark from
a big birch tree , and gnawed and slaahcd
the wood t'titll the trunk of the tree bristled
" 'Old Jake Is glttin' his mad up. ' said
lied Drake , as lie noted thu.so palpable
traces of the bear's fury. 'He's n showln'
what he kin do. and warnln' us that we
better quit and go home. B'ars has a way
of doln' that , only Old Jake's way acema to
be con.sld'ablo more so than b'ars gcner'ly
Ami BPO xvlint Iho old slasher I * dnln' ! To
show us that he's wlllln' to give us n chance
lo git homo and save our hides , he's p'intln'
us the way back there ng'lu ! '
"Sure enough , the bear , after slashing
the tree , had turned his head almost directly
east his trail showing a gradual bearing
northward. He ploughed bU way onward
without a stop or a panne until we found
It leading toward a big laurel and tamarack
" 'He's goln' Into that swamp , ' said Hcd ,
'and If he stays there we won't have to haul
his carcass more'n a mile 'n a half to git
It home. '
"We had followed the hoar now nearly
twenty miles , counting the twlstlngs and
turnings of the trail , and It was late in the
afternoon. I was nearly exhausted , and
that the hear had led us homeward Instead
of Insisting on Shades o' Death swamp made-
mo heartily glad , for otherwise1 I should
have fallen Inglorlously by the way. It Is
enough to say that the bear entered the big
swamp and was content to stay there.
" 'He's Jlst cs mad now as ho kin git , '
said Hed. ' .My Ideo Is from the way he's
been workln' , that when ho comes out o'
the swamp he'll cither come out plnted back
to'anl the Shades o' Death agin , or ulso
tioaded for the Hocky Hill country. You stay
licre and cut him off If ho pints for the
Shades , and I'll go 'round t'other side 'n
stop him If ho breaks for Hocky Hill. '
"Tho dog ( > wore sent Into the swamp , and
[ heard them for awhile , arvl then all was
still. I stood at my post , not exactly ccr-
: aln whether It would be more to my liking
if Old Jake came out on Hod's side of the
swamp than on mine , when maidenly all
choice In the matter was at an end. There
was commotion among the laurels , near the
edge of the swamp , and nut Into the open-
tig the huge bear suddenly appeared. He
was not thirty foot away from mo. I bogah
to tremble with excitement , but I blazed
away at him as quickly as I could. He had
lot scon me and when the gun went off
le turned like a flash and went smashing
mil cranium ; back Into the tiwainp , and I
hoard him foi nearly a mlDUto forging hlx
way toward the other side. I shook no that
I could hardly reload my gun , but I ilnally
got u charge In , scarcely knowing how1 I
lid It , such was my excitement. Then I
leard a shot on the other aide of the swamp.
Jld Jake had come In contact with Hod nnd
" 'That ends him , I hope , ' was my Inward
exclamation , but presently 1 heard a great
u inn It In the swamp. It drew nearer to
my side. Orowla and snarls and gnapplngs
> f the bear mingled with the howls of the
logs. The laurels miappcd and cracked.
The Irene of the battle shifted rapidly In
ny direction , and at last , much further
iwny than ho had come out thn ft rut lime ,
nit quite near enough , Old Jake plunged fiom
ho swamp , terrible In his rage. He dashed
across an open sjiaeo , and I naw that blood
vas pouring from wounds upon him. and It
Illicitly dyed thp HIIOUat bin feet. He rose
on hU haunches agalnit a tree , and rent It
vlth hla teeth and claws until the bark and
pllnters flow In scores of pieces about him
n the mow. Ho towered aloft like a giant ,
ind his erica were fearful an ho unappod
ils Jaws and slashed thu tree with hla tre-
nendous clawi , I took aim at him ax lie
aged , and pulled tbo trigger. The hammer
ell , the cap snapped , but tbo euu did nut
go off. The benr paid nn attention to me.
but flew At Another trco nnd toro It as he
had torn the lime , one. With shaking fingers
I managed to get .another enp on my gun.
Again It ! > nnppr < i , ami a third time. The bear
was still tearing at the ttoe. when the report -
port of ,1 sun close to my ear almost deaf-
rned me. It was Hed Drake's. Hearing
nothing from me he had hurried around to
see what was amiss. Ills aim was true.
The benr fell In the snow at the foot of the
tree , but was qulekly on his feet again.
I In rushed at a dead liomloek near the edge
of the Rwamp. Wounded as he was he
climbed the almost lirxnoilos ! stem nearly to
the top and clung there. Suddenly he
came dashing as straight as a plummet
down the llfclrrs trunk and still elasplng
It. The bark on the dead tree , lossontsl aa
It was by decay , had given way beneath the
weight of the boar anil slid from the' trunk
from tojt to bottom , plunging the boar down
with It. The great be st rose from the mas *
of debris that covered him , sent It llylns
In every direction , and with snapping Jaws
and firry eyes , mid crimsoning the snow t
every step , rurhed frantically toward us.
My gun snapped again , but Hed'n was trup ,
nnd old Jake > days were numbered. As
the game and tough old bear stajwre' ! .
recovered , rose In one last effort to re.ich his
foes , nnd then toppled over In the fliow
nnd moved no more , I gave a wild hurrah.
To my surprise Hed seemed east down In
stead of In a mood for rejoicing as ho gazed
nt his great trophy.
" 'What up , Hed ? ' said I. apprehnslvel >
Isn't It Old Jiili ? after all ? '
" ' ' ' ' Old Jake al !
'Yes. replied Hod. 'It's ,
1'Ight. but wliere's. George .McMillan's dogs ?
Dead , both on 'em ! Tore to pieces there
In the swamp , by this ramp.igln' varmint
and what'll ( Scorgo s. y ? It's a terrible thing
to have It said about you that you went
htintin' with borrled dogs and let 'em git
"I had forgotten the dogs In my oxclto-
ment. They had fallen victims to Old Jake's
" 'And there's that gun o' mine you're
' ' ' ' hunted with It
carryln' , said Hed , 'I've
many a das' and It novel- snapped afore.
Now It snaps three times hand runnln' anil
don't go oft the fourth time. That's the
worst kind o' luck. That's nigh as bad as
klllln' \\hlto deer. '
"He took the gun and oxaminc-d It. Then
ho withdrew the load. The result of ( hat waste
to eheer htm up. In reloading my gun 1
had In my haste and ( lustration uhoved th ?
bullet In llrst and rammed the powder down
on top of It. This trx > k ill./ bad luck off the
gun snapping , and Hcd was In better spirits
when he went home to carry the news of
the killing of Old Jake nnd to get help to
fetch hla huge carcass. In. And Hed learned
before ho went to bed lhat night something
that , while It surprised him greatly , eased
his mind of thp death of George McMillan's
dogs and gave him the right to rejoice freely
on the downfall cf Old Jako.
"It was after dark when wo got back to
Lord's valley , but there were enough IUPII
about the tavern ready to take lanterns nnd
I'ine-knot torches and go out and buck the
big bear In , and they did It. A blfiKcr Kar
never stretched his length anywhere In I'lho
county than that one. Its career. Its death
nnd Its proportions were yet the lively topic
of the evening when a Lord's Valley man
who had been over on the I'aupark came In.
After lihad lieard all about the hunt for
Old Jake h ? broke a piece of news.
" 'CJcorgo McMillan has throwed up the
I'aupaek school. ' said he.
"As I said before , George McMillan was a
mighty hunter from the headwaters of Lack-
awack. He had for a good many years
taught school in various parts of the country ,
going as far as the Susquoliantia some years ,
because when he was young school teacher *
were scarce in northeastern Pennsylvania ,
and schools were s.-atterrd. Ho always
hunted right up to the time ho took charge
of a school , and he was famous for his llglita
with bears and wolves and panthers. One
fall he killed sixty deer , twelve beam ,
three panthers and half a dozen wolves.
Pupils in the backwoods In thns't days were
apt to be rough and tough , and few teachcra
could handle them , the consequence being
that schools often had to be closed for the
season. George McMillan , though , wcs al
ways ready to undertake to subdue ar.iy set
o' scholars he came In contact with , and
he no.'er failed to do it In short order , even
If his reputation as a bear and panther fighter
wasn't Kiiinclent to guarantee dUulplinc
from the tlrst day of school to the ! : ut. Tln >
Paiipiok school was one that teachers for
several seasons had refused to try to teach ,
and then thi > directors got George McMillan
to take hold ol It. Hu straightened thli. J
out on the llr.st day , ami wca well on with
his third successful winter there wlii-n the
news caa'u thrt ho had given up the school
This Intelllroiice waa startling to the gath
ering at the Lord's Valley tavern that even-
Ing. Old .T.iku was forgotten the moment
the man Just In from I'aupaek said 'George
McMirtnia has throwed uti the PaupacH
"Kor half a minute every one- gazed In
speechless amazement at the speaker and
thru shouted In Incredulous chorus :
" 'It's RO ! ' said the nowa-hrlnger. 'Throwed
It up. Whipped out slick and clean. '
" 'Thunder and Mars ! ' exclaimed Hed
Drake. 'Who whipped him ? '
" 'Llttlo lletsy Decker , ' was the reply.
"Another Interval of upeephlcsri amazement
ensued , and before aivy one foun 1 tongue
to inquire further thu man went on
" 'You know Hetsy has ,1 hankerln * for
Sam Klmblo , and they both been goln' to

'em. They van feelln1 BO good that they
calculated they wouldn't < | Ult. George first
yanked Dan out of his bench , and rattled
all the feclln' good out of him so quick that
Dan hollered enough. George hustled him
back to hla bench and grabbed Sam. Sam ,
