"The Legend Of The Silent Bear"
Paul Kirk, famous big game hunter and sportsman, is vacationing at the lake, with the family of his friend, George. George's two sons, Timmy and Tommy, head off into the woods to hunt for bear. Vaulting the wall of the Raspp estate, the two boys close on the lifelike metal statue of a bear. As they take aim on the "bear", they witness, through their rifle scopes, a man placing his hand in the statue's mouth. The man screams. Pulling his hand away, the boys see a miniature bear trap clamped around the man's hand. The man flees. The boys shoot the bear statue, causing a hidden door to open in the bear's chest. Ben Raspp appears, and chases the boys off his property. The boys recount the tale to their father. KIrk decides to investigate the matter further, as the Manhunter. As the Manhunter approaches Raspp's estate he hears a gunshot. The Manhunter discovers Raspp murdered. Spotting the likely killers, Manhunter leaps down upon them. Though he isn't hit directly, one gunshot goes off near enough for the exploding gunpowder to blind the Manhunter. The murderer's flee, while the Manhunter blindly gropes his way back through the woods. At dawn, a recovering Manhunter is discovered by Boy Scout, Jimmy Jones. The young boy uses his own tracking skills to lead the Manhunter to the murderers, who have holed up in a cave. Once more the Manhunter engages the killers in a round of fisticuffs, this time triumphing over the lot of them. The lead killer turns out to be Raspp's nephew, Harry, who sought his Uncle's fortune to pay off gambling debts. Manhunter locates the money inside the bear statue. As per Raspp's wishes, his fortune is donated to charity. In appreciation for Jones' help in aiding the Manhunter, Kirk donates a new clubhouse and campsite to Jones' Boy Scout troop.
