Abel Arbogast, of the Sinks, Pocahontas county, is some bear hunter. Last Friday he tracked an old she and three cubs into a laurel patch. He then went home for help and returned with his brother and another man to drive the bears out while he watched a crossing. The bears came out and Arbogast killed all four of them. Shooting but one shot for each one. Then on the day following he went out and killed another large bear. On his house are stretched the hides of two big bears and the three lusty bears.
