The case of Mr. and Mrs. Metzer, on trial here on a charge of conspiracy to defraud Dr. Wilhelm: ended Saturday by the court's decision on a unique point of law raised by the defense. One person, of course, can not be guilty of conspiracy. The defense argued that Mr. and Mr Metzer are husband and wife and held in law to be one person, consequently it is im- possible for them to commit con- spiracy. The court sustained the de- fense and the prisoners were dis. charged.

When Uncle John asked Sister Mar). and me to go camping with him in the Adirondacks. he promised that he would take good care of us. and bring us home in ten days with brown cheeks and big appetites, We were just crazy to go, and begged so hard that mamma finally gave her consent, and off we went with Uncle John. Mr. Mason. Mr. Spear and a guide. I am not going to tell about our trip to the mountains, or about the little cabin we lived iu. or how homesick we got at night. Mary and I had a fine time dlring the daylight, but when darkness came. and the wind sighed through the trees, we were awfully lonesomo. After we had been in camp four days all tle men started off hunting one morting, leaving Lion, a shaggy bird dog, to keep us company while we fished for trout in a little stream near our cabin. The fish didn't bite rpidty, or maybe we were poor flshergirls; any- way, we got tired, and leaving our lines, started up the rough mountain trail in search of wild flowers. We went a great deal farther than we expe.cted, and suddenly found our- selves at the bear-trap Uncle John had set, We saw a bear, too, and were nearly frightened out of our wits, until we found the big brown animal was caught in the ugly teeth of the trap. Wben we had stiffened up our cour- age and walked near he bear we saw two wee bits of cubs -the cutest little things in the world--lying at her side. The cubs saw us, too, and scampered up to the very top of a tall tree that grew near by. Mary and I did want those cubs so badly, but we were too badly scared to think hard. We watched them away up on the dead limbs for five minutes, when Mary suddculy said it would be a good plan to tie Lion to the bottom of the tree and so keep the cubs from runnmg away while wc went back and got Uncle John and the men. So we tied him to the tree with some fishing line. and ran hastily away to get beyond his dismal whin- ] ing. We reached camp just as the I men were getting ready for luncheon, and after Uncle John had scolded us we told him of the bears. It didn't take very long for the whole crowd to get back to the trap. The old bear was shot and Lion was nntied. The cubs were still up in the treeotop, and as it was to tall to climb the guide went to chopping it down. Finally it fell with a crash, but the cubs had jumped to another tree, whose branches spread to the fallen one. This second tree came down under the guide's blows, and with it one of the cubs the other had again caught hold of another branch. Uncle John ran after the fallen cub and quickly put it head fores oat in a gunny sack and tied the sack tight, Even then the little fellow managed to scramble amid piteous cries t his dead mother. It was hard work cutting down the th{rd tree. but finally it tottered and fe)l with a crash, bearing the second eu to the ground. The fall was not broken and the cub was killed. The guide soon cut away the coats of the mother and dead cub and we went back to eamp, Uncle John carry- ing the cub in the sac. When war reacled the cabin the cub was taken out and a buckskin collar put around his neck and then he was chained to a tree. Mary and I fed him and the way he lapped condensed milk mixed with hot water made us laugh. He was an awfully hungry little cub, and as funny ia his antics as his appetite was big. He was called Jack, and soon be- came great friends wlth Lion. The I I f' v had gwn very fond of Two months afterward  an Kdro daek gu,ide came into one of the small stores of our village, having with him a liAle, brown bear around whos i neck there was a buckskin collar. The guide said he was going through the mountains when the bear ran up l to him and wauted to play. Its said he never saw such a tame bear. it was J ack. Uncle John bought him and now hn f is in our back yard. but he is getting" awfully big, and Uncle John says he will soon have to join some cicus. '. Y. Journal. HOW Little Moody i{iped.
