Not a child who hear this story has ever forgotten what somebody promis ed to give them or do for them. And certainly bear children can remember as well as any of Mr. Man's kinfolks ever did. And now it was night again, and supper was over, and Grandma was getting out her knitting and settling herself for work on Jenny's sweater. But Jenny hadn't forgotten that Grand ma didn't tell them, last night, why she left her good home with her old mistress that she had so often talked about, and went back to live a wild life in the woods. She had just as well learn all about it, and so she asked Grandma to toll her what made her do it. "Well, I reckon grandpa had something to do with it," Grandma said. "One day when I had grown up to be a girl, my mistress brush ed my coat off guod and slick, until it looked right pretty and shiney, and then took me to town with her. She met some friends there, and they talked about going around and seeing things, and they de cided to go out to some sort of a park that they called a "Zoo," as I remember, "There were lots Or different sorts of woodsfolks in there many of them being strangers to me. Some of them were In little houses that had wire or bars or something all around them, so they couldn't get out, and I was mighty glad the bars and wires were there, for some of those park folks looked like they would rather bite me than play with me. But I ran and peeped in at a lot of them, and some of them told me howdy. And then I came to a little house that had a right nice-looking young black bear in it, and he was just about my sire. He seemed nice and friendly, and we said howdy thru the wire. My mistress saw us talk ing and smiling at each other, and she asked the man that was look ing after all the woodfolks if he wouln't turn his bear out in the big lot, and let him play with me. The bear's house had a wire fence all around it, arid the man wasn't afraid that his bear would get away, and so he turned him out. "This young bear and I played around while the man was showing my mistress and her friends the other folks that lived in the xoo birds and fishes and lions and things, and pretty soon we were up near the big gate that opened out into the road. When the peo ple went in, he didn't lock or hook this gate, but just pulled it shut, and so when I butted that other bear against the gate, it new open, and there he was out in the road, rolling over in the sand. When he got up, he began running as fast as he could right toward the woods, and I ran right after him. The people didn't seem to see us, and so they didn't try to catch us. "When we got to the woods, that bear kept on running and did I. After a while he stopped and I caught up with him. We both sat down to rest, for we were tired. He just sat there and looked at me, and it seemed to me that he was smiling in a mighty friendly sort of way, but I thought he was just looking at my pretty shiney coat. And then he said in an even friendlier sort of way than he had been looking: 'Let's not go back.' I just sat there and looked about, as if I hadn't heard him, but I was thinking mighty hard. There Wasnt any bear back at the house for me to play with nothing but cats and dogs, and we didn't have much fun and this certainly was a nice young man, and he seemed to know how to play. "I was still looking around, and trying to think what to say, when the young man said again: 'Let's not go back,' I dont know just what I said or did, but the first thing I knew we were trotting along together, and after a while we came to that great big tree where we were living that day when Blackie went to sleep in the eagle's nest, after staining my table cloth with the juice of a cherry pie." "And I am sure you might have done worse, as Blackie would say," Grandpa said as he took his pipe out of his mouth, and grinned like Billie Possum, "Don't you remem ber what a fat rabbit I gave you for a wedding present?"
