Boy was clinging climbed Mrs. Bear.
When ahe had dropped to the ground she
" looked up and growled her aeepest, most
grumbly. rumbly growl. Then she shuf
fled straight over to the great windfall,
turning her head now and then toward
Farmer Brown's Boy and throwing a
growl of warning over her shoulder.
When Mrs. Bear had changed her mind
up in that tree and had started dpwn In
stead of keeping on up. Old Man Coyote
had been standing near the entrance to
her bedroom . tinder the irreat windfall.
BuTVhen"Bhe landed on the ground Old
Man Coyote was nowhere to be seen. No
onewwaa -to be seen. That is, none of
those ho wear fur was to be seen.
Sammy Jay and Blacky the Crow were
in nearby trees,, but - both were silent
Eagerly they were watching Mrs. Bear
to see what she would do next. But they
were not watching any more eagerly
than was Farmer Brown's Boy. v
" When Mrs. Bear reached the great
windfall she put her nose to the ground
and sniffed until she came to the place
where Old Man Coyote had stood. When
' her nose picked up the scent he had
left the hair on her shoulders and along
her back stood on end and made her
look bigger and fiercer than ever. With
a snarl of anger she rushed around the
end of the windfall as If she expected to
find Old Man Coyote hiding there. ': If
she did she was disappointed. But he
waan't no far away that he couldn't and
didn't see all that Mrs. Bear did, and.
perhaps, after all, this was an Mrs. iiear
"My. my,, iny, what a temper 1" mut-
tered Old Man Coyote. "Buster Bear
was never like this. What alls her, any
way? I guess this old windfall is a place
to stay away from as longs she makes
her home here. She's welcome to it, as
far .as I am conceded. - I'll just hang
around until I see If Farmer Brown's
Boy gets away and afterward I'll keep
away from this part of tha Green For
est. Such a temper Such a temper!"
Mrs. Bear walked back nd forth, back
and forth in Xront of the great winaraii,
growling and muttering to herself, keep

Farmer Brown's Boy, and glaring sus

short rush in his direction.
He beiran to wonder If Mrs. Bear
would keen him up in that tree all day,
It made him uncomfortable to think of
of being up there after dark with a sav

she turned and disappeared under the

waited just as long: as he could. Then he
began slowly and carefully to climb
down, trying to make no sound. As his
feet touched the ground he held his
breath. There was no sign of Mrs. Bear.
Slowly, setting each foot down as care

Farmer Brown'a Boy crept away. : As
soon as he felt it safe to do so he ran.

The Dalles, March 26.--Shoes, an over

business man of, this city. who. disap
peared last Monday night when he left
his quarters with the intention of at
tending a lodge meeting, were found on
a low rocky cliff overhanging the Co

the railroad station. Friday.

position of .many that One " may have
committed suicide because of mounting
debts. The police are Inclined to doubt
this theory, believing the man has -fled

Salem. March 26. Unless an amicable
adjustment of the differences between
the Spaulding Logging company and its
employes on the. wage question can be
i'eachl at a conference between the
management and representatives of the
employes, the Indefinite shutdown of. the
plant on April 1 is altogether probable,
it developed hero Friday.
Members of the International 'Timber
workers' union at' a meeting Thursday
night ,- adopted resolutions opposing the
announced . reduction ln -wages -from
$3.60 to $3 a day, effective April 1. The
company has served, notice on the Loyal
Legion of Loggers and Lumbermen that
it will discontinue Its membership in
that organization, which has stood for
a minimum wage scale of $3.60 a day.
