declaring that there can be no mistake about it visited the premises It entered the haIl and passed up stairway and went into a vacant room at the head of the steps In the room was a bed a number of pic-¬ tures hanging on the walls and also a dress belonging toMrs Holt During the night Mr Holt heard noise in the room but he supposed it was made by one of his boys or a workhand who had come in to retire Such however was not the case The bear or whateverit was left the room about 4 oclock in the morning as it was heard going out When daylight came Mr Holt went to the room to discover all the pictures torn from the walls and the prints of bear claws could be plainly seen Mrs Holts dress was also torn into strings Turning to the bed it showed plainly that it had been slept on and there were bear hairs on the bedclothing The intruder had been gone several hours when Mr Holt got up and hay- ¬ ing no dogs he made no effort to track it but he is fully convinced that he en- ¬ tertained a bear
