way growling angrily. The boaster fled to the nearest tree, dropped his gun,
and climbed to a safe place without thinking of his poor friend. The latter
flung himself upon his face as though dead. The bear smelt his body, turned him
over, licked his face, and supposing him to be dead, went on its way leaving
him unhurt.

The other
man came down from the tree, and going to his friend said “Well, what
secrets did he whisper so quietly in your ear?”. To which the little man,
