Bears
In the city of Belsk, the police chief is going to enforce a decree that gypsies must shoot their bears after 5 years of delay. The whole city is going to a spectacle. Gypsies try to bribe “high honor”, but it’s not in his power to abolish the decree – all that the police chief could help, it’s the advice to sell the fat and skins of the killed animals to the pharmacist (the wife of the treasurer’s brother Olga Pavlovna has already agreed with the pharmacist about buying a miracle ointment for ” ), the meat was purchased by the merchant Rogachev.
The next day the execution of bears begins. Children and women watch it from the tents. The first to appear before the public was the old Ivan with the biggest and oldest bear. He said goodbye to Potap, but his hand did not go up to his comrade-his grandson had to shoot a bear in the ear. One of the clumsy fell off, and he was long caught in the city, killed late in the evening in the bushes near the river.
After that, the Roma engaged in the usual craft – the theft of horses. Olga Pavlovna still covers her thinned hair with a chignon – the bear’s lipstick did not help.
