The Globe reported that a large black bear had carried away a baby, 18-months-old, while the mother was picking huckleberries outside Cheboygan, Mich. The mother, a Polish woman, left the child sleeping in charge of a child who was eight years old. A sheriff dispatched a posse of 10 men and a deputy to the scene, but they were unable to find any trace of the child or the bear.
