A naturalist, who has reared several bear-cubs, says, "If you have an
enemy, give him a bear-cub. His punishment will be adequate, no matter
what his offense." But the young farmer and his wife did not think so,
and as for the baby who was now learning to walk, "Bar-Bar," as he
called the young bruin, was a never-ending source of delight.
