THE GRISLY BEAR is formidable Even to the most savage Indian, who would generally prefer not to attack him. If he will meet his grisly foe, he advances to the contest with extreme caution, and, conquering, Ever after proudly wears the collar of claws, as a trophy of his daring. The size and strength of the Grisly Bear are wonderful. Its length is twelve feet, its weight sixteen hundred pounds, and it can drag to a considerable distance a Buffalo weighing one thousand pounds. Its claws are five inches long. When the animal strikes a blow with them, they cut like a chisel. [Pp. 16-17; exhibited under heading: "Section Third."]
