The Shopkeeper's Bear
When a far-sighted shopkeeper encounters a bear in his store that has come in search of honey, he mistakes her for a woman “wrapped up in a fur” and hires her on the spot as his new assistant. Business increases as curious customers come to see the odd new clerk who has the store running smoothly again. But once the shopkeeper puts on his new glasses and realizes that his new assistant is a bear, will her smart running of the place be enough to keep her employed there? Perhaps not. But maybe something far more important will.
