to the Tripletts for helping to pack
the whole out of the lava lcri and a
large part of the lomniuriar went to
Mr. Kever's frienris Who have a
tooth for Iwar meat.
Hilly Hrock, coming down the
loud Sunday nlwut dusk,' saw the
bear some distance above Wet
weather Springs. Hruiu was mak
ing tracks for the river. Mr.
Hrock was not cqulpixid for hunt
ing bear so he came on. Next
morning Mr. Kever heard of it and
started out with dog and gun. He
found the bear trail where Hrock
linri rojtortcd it and the do follow
ed it wTth"'little difficulty, though
the trucks were covered with a light
snow. The bear had gone out in
the edge of the lava between Lava
butte and the river. Sunday night
the beast slept there about j
miles from the point where he
crossed the wagon road.
After Hint the trail was fresh anri
the dog showed great interest in it.
Soon he en me upon the lx.nr and

barking. The bear held his ground
and the dog was very discreet un

urged him on.

Then the bear

him. Up a tree went bruin, but
when he saw the hunter coming he
leapt down anri tried to get away.
Hut when he would flee the dog
was upon him auri when he turned
to fight the riog was at a distance.
Again the bear went up a tree to get
clear of his tormentor anri again he
came down us the hunter hove in
sight. It was anything but easy
traveling over the sharp lava rocks
and through the dense mauzauita
bushes. A third time the bear
went up a tree.
Kever saw his prcy,thVj.timq be
fore the boar was moved to the
point of jumping down. Pausing
a few moments to get his breath
auri n steady aim, he fired to break
the bear's neck, and the shot went
home. Down he came in n heap
and the dog was upon him instant
ly. When the hunter enmc up the
prourietit dog in Oregon welcomed
him to mm. what had been accom
plished. After Kever had cut the
bear's throat the generous dog
recognised the trophy as a partner
ship affair, but his pride was not
one whit abated.
The bear was a brown one nnri
his weight dressed was near 200
pounds. The skin is a beauty, auri
the flesh proved quite a trout to
those who had a chance at it. This
was Mr. Kever's first bear. It was
nlso the dog's first adventure of this
kind. The dog is prouder than
his master over the achievement.
This, without doubt, is the swtne

the tent inside. The bear came up
to the tent nnri pushed his nose
against the cloth wall noar the
honey. That upset the table and

the faimily anri also evidently
scared the bear, for when Mr. Mc
Caun got out to investigate he saw
only n blnck speck retreating in the
distance. His horses were fright

found nearly 10 miles to the south

JJlwoori, returned Tuesday night
from their homesteads in 22-9.
Their brother Thomas accompanied
them on thuir trip. They had
plenty 01 experience on tneir way
The three left Millson's home
stead on the west fork, or Big river,
Sunday morning, floating down in
a new boat built there. They found
fine shooting Sunday and bagged a
200-pouud buck, a swan auri a lot
of ducks. They made camp at the
foot of Fish Traps Sunday night.
Monday morning they started early
auri soon struck a snag. The bout
swung around broadside to the
swift current and was Ixutom side
up in a jiffy. The water is a dozen
feet deep there and the men had
opportunity tb grope around quite
awhile before getting to the surface.
Hut all finally came up auri got
hold of the taut before it escatcd
down the stream.
About 100 yards down the stream
they succeeded in touching shore
when the bout was righted. The
buck stuck to the boat but all the
rest of the game was gone. The
rifle and nmuuition went to the
bottom of the stream, with pro
visions, a grip full of extra clothing
auri some tools. Several miles be
low the roll of blankets anri the
swan were recovered, where they
had caught on some snags at the
It whs snowing furiously auri the
men had no dry matches to light a
fire nor axe to cut wood. So they
pushed on, hoping to reach Allen's
place, 40 miles below, by night.
Hut when George Hatcs's cabin was
reached, about 5 o'clock, the men
were so cold and hungry they
coukl go no further and they broke
into the cabin with some difficulty.
There they found dry matches and
built a fire and got warm anil dry.
They had a good meal of venison
and spent the night in reasonable
comfort. Itlwood Roberts, who
had lost his hat in the upset, found
a boy's hat at the atbiu, which,
though a misfit, sufficed to protect
hi head until he reached home.
Tuesday tlie party resumed the
voyage and reached Allen's a little
before noon. From that point they
walked to town, a distance of 16
miles. It was snowing and slip
jwry auri it took them six hours to
cover the distance. They were
somewhat atifT-Ruri lame but other
wise uninjured by their experience.
It was a narrow escape.
It snowed everyday the Robortses

now a foot auri a half of snow on
