FIGHTS FOR UFE WITH BEAR
| With Ax Woodsman Halts and Batters
Bruin, Only to A Attacked
Williamsport, Pa., Dec. 9. —John P.
Steis, a woodchopper, who lives near
Brockwayville, killed a large black bear
with an ax in a strenuous battle in the
woods near his home, and narrowly
escaped being injured by the animal.
Steis was at work felling a tree,
when a bear came into view through
the woods. The man stopped work
and debated whether to run or to con
tinue his labor, hoping that bruin
would pass on.
The bear, however, did not seem to
be in the least afraid of Steis. Instead
of turning and fleeing, as the chopper
natuially supposed the animal would
do, the bear continued its course until,
a short distance away from Steis, it

The chopper had no weapon but liis
heavy ax, and with this he rapped the
bear 011 the side of the head and
stopped its rush momentarily. The ani
mal recovered, however, and again
rushed at the woodsman. Jt showed
considerable agility for aji animal so
heavy, and Steis had difficulty in es
caping its paws, which it swung close
to his head. Steis than struck the bear
a hard blow over the head with his ax
and the animal fell.
Steis thought he had laid the bear
out, but when he approached it, bruin
was again on its feet and ready to con
tinue the battle. This time, however,
the muu was too quick for the clumsy
beast, and he rapped it over the face
and head several in quick succes
sian, blinding the bear, which fell to
the ground; then he killed it.

MONTH'S CLEARANCES SMALL
Report for the Year Ended October 1,
However, Shows Good Increase
The fact that the Clearing House re
ports in Harrisburg for the last month
indicate a falling off for the month of
November from $7,212,263.26, last
year, to $6,348,579.93 this year, is uot
regarded by Harrisburg men of finan
cial standing as anything alarming, but
merely that the daily clearances were
much smaller than usual because the
business was not being done to cause
the presentation of the mlmber of
checks that are issued wheu there are
lively business conditions.
Charles A. Kunkel, president of the'
Mechanics' Trust Company, said to-day
that the decrease indicates there is a i
dullness in business and not so
collections. People are not issuing so j
many checks because money is being: i
looked after more and the buyer j
is being careful of the dollar.
"Good business makes clearances'
large," said Mr. Kunkel, "and then it i
is that the number and volume of |
checks is large." s
For the entire year, however, ending)
October 1 the clearances increased.
Clearing House reports, according to a
statement issued yesterday by Al. K.
Thomas, secretary of the Harrisburg
Clearing House Association, show an
increase of $3,139,459.97 over last
year for the twelve months beginning
October 1, 1913, and ending October
1, 1914. This year's report showed a
total of $84,078,362.34 against SBO,-
938,877.37 for this year.
