A big fat bear in good shape \u2013 he guessed his weight at 400 pounds \u2013 was reared up on his hind legs and came almost to him, fifteen or twenty feet way, growling. Mr. Gardner had never seen a bear that wouldn\u2019t run. He looked around to see only a few little trees \u2013 of course the bear could climb anyway \u2013 and knew he had to bluff the bear. He picked up two or three big rocks, let out some yells and rushed him. The bear backed down and moved off.\r\n\r\nNew Minister\r\nThe Rev. Willis Cornelius and family arrived Friday.
