A Bear is shown up a tree and, being tempted with a ginger snap, goes through a good many movements in a rather precarious position. Finally he comes down and there are numerous pictures of him being fed various delicacies, particularly syrup from a bottle. Several Chipmunks are shown, and their quick movements are almost beyond the ability of the camera to depict. Next are several scenes with Deer, including one Doe so tame that it wanders up and down the main street of the village, turning out for traffic. A herd of Elk is shown and a mother Grouse so tame that she roosts upon the director’s arm and feeds from his other hand. Other birds illustrated are the Water Ousel with its peculiar nervous bobbing motion, a Robin with»its nest, a Fly Catcher and some baby Thrushes before they have their eyes open and later when about half grown.

The photography of this subject was taken under very difficult conditions, and is not altogether perfect, but the unique subject compensates in some degree for this defect. It will be appreciated by nature lovers and others interested in wild life of the sort described.
