had cfimbed to the top of the ironwork,
thrtist one front paw through between
two of the bars (bears are the greatest
busy-bodies on earth), and when he
sought to withdraw it. the sharp point
of a bar in the overhang of the tree-guard
had bttried itself in the back of his hand.
and held him fast. It seemed as if his leg
was broken, and also dislocated at the
shoulder no vronder the poor little chap
s-malled for help! His mother, on the
other side of the partition. was almost
frantic with baffled*sympathy, for she
couldn't do anything t<> help him.
lt did not take more than a quarter
minute to have several men rv.nning
for irowbars and otht-r things. and within
three minutes from the discovery we were
in the den ready for action. The little
chap gave two or three . ries to let tis
know how badly it hurt his leg to hang
there, then bent his small mind upon
rendering us assistance.
First we lifted him up bodily. and held
him. to remove the strain. Then, by
good luck, we had at hand a sto.u iron
bar with a L'-shaped end: and with that
under the injured wrist, and a crowbar
;.. -] ring the treacher.'iis overhang. we
lifted the foot dear, and lowcred little
' Brownie to the floor. From flrst to last
he belped us all he could. and seemed to
realize that it was clearly '"no fair'' to
bite or scratch. Fortunately the leg was
neither broken nor dislocated, and al?
though Brownie limped for ten days, he
soon was all right again. After the inci
dent had been closed, I gave the men a
brief lecture on the language of bears,
and the necessity of being able to recog
nize the distress call.
The American magpie talks beautifully;
but I regret to say that I do not under
stand a word of its language. Last sum?
mer we had several iine specimens in the
great flying-cage. with the big and showy
waterfowl. condor, griron vulture, ravens
and crows. One of those magpies often
came over to the side of the cage to talk
to me, and. as I believe. make com
plaints. Whether he complained about
his big and bulky cage-mates. or the
kee]K-rs. or me. I could not tell; but I
thought that his grievances were against
the large birds. YYhenever I climbed
over the guard-rail and stooped down,
he would come close up to the wire, stand
in one Spot, and in a Muict, coniidentia!
tone talk to me earnestly and gesticulatc \
with his head for five minutes straight.
I have heard senile old men run on in
low-voiced, unintelligible clack in pre
ciselv the same way. The modulations
of that bird's voice, its intlections an<l its
vocabulary were simply wonderfuL From
his manner a messenger from Mars might
ea.lv have mferred that the bird believed
th.it every word of the discourse was fully
In ;o 2 there was a startling exhibition
of monkey language at our primates'
house. That was before the completion
of the lion house. We had to tind tem?
porary outdoor litiarters for the big
jaguar, Sefior Lopez; and there being
nothing else available we decided to
place him in the big circular cage at the
north end of the series of out side cages
at the primates' house. lt was May. and
the baboons, red-faced monkeys. rhesus:.
green and many other of the larger
monkeys were in their outside quarters.
I was not present when Lopez was
turned into the big cage; but I heard
it. Down through the woods to the
polar bears' deti. a good quarter of a
mile, came a -most awful uproar, made
by many voices. The bulk of it was a
medley of raucous yells and screeches.
above which it was easy to distinguish
the fierce, dog-like barks and roars of.
We knew at once that Lopez had
arrived. Hurrying up to the primates'
house, we found the wire fronts of the
outside cages literally plasteted with
monkeys and baboons, all in the wildest
excitement. The jaguar was in full view
of them, and although not one out of,
the whole lot, except the sapajous. ever
had even an ancestor that had seen a
iaguar, they one and all re. ognized a
hostile gcnus. and a hereditary enemy.
And how they cursed him, and reviled
him, and made hideous faces at him!
The long-armed yellow baboons barked
and roared until they were heard
half a mile away. The ugly-tempered
macaques and rhesus monkeys nearly
burst with hatred and indignation. The
row was kept up for a long time, and the
monkey language that was lost to science
on that occasion was, both in quantity
and quality, beyond compare.
TIP AND Tl
iContinued from tage 4.
a consciousness of the falseness and
danger of his t->sition: on the contrary. it
will be so slight that he will hardly notice
it. and the chances are that he will be
betraying the interests of his legitimate
employer in minor ways for a long time
before he really appreciates it. Then?well
then, even if his conscience has not be?
come so warped that he does not care. he
mav fmd it difCeult to extricate himself.
The railroad rebate, that has been re
ceiving so much attention recently, is
n< .thing more than a tip to get business.
The Lexow Committee unearthed a tre
mendous tipping system in New-York
some years ago. and other cities have
been troubled similarly. It is bribery,
of course; but it begins with the tip.
In some cities a substantial tip has been
found necessary to stimulate the interest
of detectives in a particular case. and the
Iman's bar-room tip is notorious.
It paves the way to graft of other kinds.
The Standard < h! Company built up its
monopoly by exacting tips in the shaj>e
One of the principal charges made
against the packers' combine is that it
irried the tipping system toitslogical
conclusion, and that it ditTers from the
waiter only in the amount of the tribute
? . xacts for its business favors.
The notorious Sam Parks merely let
the habit of exacting tips get the better
of him. and various other labor-union
officials have been concerned similarly.
There is hardly a city in the country
that has not had trouble over the tip
ping of assessors, smoke inspectors and
other officials, the tip growing easily to
the importance of a bribe.
In business life men have not hesi
tated to tip purchasing agents and others
who happen to be in a position to in
fluence or give business, and many men
owe the loss of their positions to the fact
that they have accepted such tips. Yet
the very man who discharges an employee
for accepting a tip may not hesitate to
invite business bv giving a nice little
"present" to another's employee.
There you have it?the sinister in
fluence of the miscellaneous tipping
habit! The man who buys or sells
tritiing favors in this way is naturally
somewhat t*.k-rant of the man who does
the same thing <>n a larger scale. An.l
the man who does it on a large'- scale
justifies himself by asscrting that, in
one way or another. all do it. Of course
that is not literally true, but there are
enough who do business on this principle
to make the unthinking accept his asser
tion, and they are then ready to excuse
themselves in the same way. It is the
moral influence that is doing the harm,
leading us to talk lightly of graft that is
than one degree removed from down
right bribery. an.l the wh"1.*' pernii
rable system is founded on the tip
--the plain, plebeian, proi liscuous tip,
that we accepted from abroad as a
ince and with our usual prodigality
formed into a burden an I a menai e.
