(Continued from puge 1.)
As we watch and listen, the
shepherd boy suddenly rises, lays
aside his lute and picks up a sling
that was lying at his feet. , Taking
a stone from his shepherd's bag,
he places it in the sling. He gives
the sling a rapid swinging motion
about his head for a few seconds
and then lets the stone fly at a
distant object. We look quickly
in the direction of the shot, just
in time to see a good sized bear
turn on his haunches and run
back into a dark ravine. It is evi
dent he has felt the stinging blow
of the shepherd's shot.
We notice now the shepherd's
sling . It is a small piece of leath
er, smaller than the palm of the
hand, with two long leather
strings fastened to opposite cor
ners. One string has a loop in it
tor fasten "it around the middle
finger "so as to hold it from flying
free. The other string is released
in making the shot. The shepherd
boy has become so skillful in the
use of the sling that he. can select
an object and hurl a stone as true
as a good marksman would shoot
with a rifle. ' j
The sling is useful, too, in turn
ing the sheep if they wander too
far. The shepherd will hurl a
stone so that it will land just
beyond the straying sheep. Ins
tantly the sheep will turn around
and come back. The shepherd boy
selects the smooth round stones
that are found and puts, them in
his bag for use when needed. A
smooth round stone will fly best
and true. A lop-sided stone will
not fly true.
The bear having gone back to
nurse his hurt from $he stinging
shot, the shepherd boy again takes
up his lute and begins to sing. He
does not have a music score, for
none was written. He composes,
makes it up as he goes along. As
