TWO WOMEN WHIP THREE BEARS.
They Were Not robust brutes., but they ..are bears all the same. The Parkersons and Ackley's of Trescott pasture their cows in the same lot. One Saturday night these cows did not come up to the bars as usual, and after waiting a reasonable time Mrs. Thomas Parkerson and Mrs. Elbridge Ackley started out to find them. It was almost sundown when the women began their quest. They pushed on, however, and, having climbed the hill, had entered a belt of old-growth woods on the edge of the swamp, when Mrs. Parkerson caught Mrs. Ackley by the arm, crying: "Oh, my! look!" pointing to the right. Mrs, Ackley followed her advice and did look. What she saw would make an ordinary woman faint away, but down-East women are made of sterner stuff, so when she saw three bears, an old female and two cubs, she said "Oh, my," too, and both women went to a pile of cordwood close by and procured two stout round birch stick* about four feet long. . The subsequent battle was short but very exciting. The old bear was lean and weak. She made a deal of noise, but when it came to fighting she "wasn't in it." Two times she moved up and showed fight, but failing to break through the waving wall of clubs got down on all four and beat a hasty retreat, followed by her two young cubs. One of these little bear lets was very weak and could not run nearly so fast as the other, so in the course of ten or fifteen minutes the old mother bear and the Stronger cub were out of sight, leaving the poor weak one to the tender mercies of two wide-awake women.
The little fellow was soon dispatched, the cows were found and the tired victors went home to get supper, proud of their work.- Bangor News.
