The bear was small then, so he was not afraid of him.

He cut the tree down, and as soon as it fell, the dogs caught the bear.

Did they hurt him, Frank?

No, the man did not let them hurt him.

See, Frank, the man is coming here.

How do you do, boys?

How do you do, sir?

We like to see your bear play.  We think he likes you.

O yes! he likes me, for I always take good care of him.

John and his cat Dick do not like rats.  They catch all they can.  One time, John set a trap to catch some, and then went away and hid with Dick.

Pretty soon a big rat came out of its hole and went to the trap.

Dick saw the rat, and made a start to get away from John.  But John said, “Hold on, Dick, let us see if it will go into the trap.”

But the rat did not go in, and as it was going to run away, John let Dick go, and said, “Catch it, Dick.  Run quick, quick!” and they ran very fast to catch the rat.

But the rat was too quick for them.  It went into its hole just as Dick was very near it.
