IN TUE JUNGLE.
Tiger, tiger ! in thy lair,
Thoa hast torn his limbs apart ;
0, the white bones lying there !
0, the red half-eaten heart !
0, the yellow locks beside thee
That I often kissed and curled
Yet no hell-fire will betide thee
In the waste beyond the world.
Tiger, tiger! from the sod,
And the vastiludes of the sea,
Thou wert molded by the God
Who in glory molded me;
Ashes, dust and air and fire
Enter in our earthly frame
Went to kindle my desire,
Went to fan thee into flame.
Tiger, tiger! blazing bright
Are thine eyeballs as mine own
They the darkness and the light
Of revolving suns have known ;
They have seen the jeweled June-light |
Sleeping in magnolia blooms,
Seen the weird, mid-winter moonlight
Shivering by solemn tombs.
Tiger, tiger ! though thy frame
Is unlike my mortal parts,
Yet the feelings are the same
That have flashed within our hearts ;
For thy blood has leap'd with passion,
Languished with a strange unrest,
And thy hatreds are in fashion
. With the hatreds in my breast.
Tiger, tiger ! this is why
Thou hast slain my brave, sweet si n,
Yet the good God up on high
Let th?5 evil deed be done,
Atoms from far countless places
Met and mingled in thy form,
Out of old, dead realms and races
Memories of san and storm.
Tiger, tiger ! from the flood,
And the cloud and.wind and lea,
Atoms mingled in my blood,
And the lost boy bloomed from me.
And these forces-separated
Ey infinities of years
Met, and left me desolated
In their death march thro' the spheres.
Tiger, tiger ! he was mine
He the beautiful dead boy !
Now thine eyeballs swim and shine
With a strange and savage joy ;
And I see thy keen claws dripping
With the blood that wanned his breest,
And I hear thy hot lips sipping
From the lip? that raine have pressed.
Tiger, tiger! I can see,
Slipping through the jungle dim,
One who is beloved of thee,
And thou art beloved of him ;
Av, beloved, for thou begat him,
Just as I begat my boy,
And I see thee pet and pat him
With a sweet and savage joy.
Tiger, tiger ! twangs my bow,
Flies my arrow through the air,
And the golden lilies glow,
With his life-blood leaping there ;
And I hear thy wild, quick pleading
Cry of passion and of pain,
And I see thee press the bleeding
Body of thy baby slain.
Tiger, tiger ! this is life ;
Through the wide sweep of the spheres ]
AU the Universe is rife
With these tragedies and tears ;
And the gladdest song upswelling
From the gayest heart to-day
Brings it nearer to the knelling
And tbe coffin-worm and clay.
EY AN AFRICAN HUNTE E.
When I was in the interior of South
Africa inhabited by the Griquas, I had
a remarkable and fearful encounter
with a lioness.
I had been shooting antelopes when
tho adventure occurred which I am
about to describe.
. I observed a number of vultures
seated on the plain about a quarter of j
a mile ahead of us, and close beside j
them stood a huge lioness, consuming
a bleabok which she had killed.
She was assisted in her repast Ly
about a dczen jackals.
Directing my followers' attention,
1 remarked :
" I see the lion to which they re
" Whar ? whar? Yah ! Almagtic !
that is he ;" and instantly reining in
their steeds and wheeling about were
preparing to betake themselves to j
I asked them what they were going
To which they answered :
" We have not yet placed caps on
While this short conversation was
paeeing, the lioness had observed us.
Raising her face, she overhauled
us for a few 'seconds and then eet off|
towards a range of mountains some
miles to the northward ; the jackals
also started oil in another direction.
There waa, therefore no time to think
The first move waa to bring her to j
Spurring my steed and shouting to
my men to follow, I fled across the
plain, and gained upon her at every
The lioness having a long start on
me we went over a considerable ex
tent of ground before I came up with
Finding that I gained upon her ;
Bhe reduced her pace from a canter to
I shouted loudly to her to halt, up
on which she suddenly pulled up and
s it on her haunches like a dog, with
her back toward me, not even deign
ing to look round.
She appeared to say to herself:
" DoeB this fellow know who he is
Having sat for half a minute, she
sprang to her feet, and facing about,
stood looking at me for a few seconds
and growling fiercely. She next made
a short run forward, making aloud,
rumbling noise, like thunder.
Finding that I did not flinch nor
seem to heed her hostile demonstra
tions, she stretched out and lay down
on the grass. My Hottentots now
coming up, we all three dismounted,
and, drawing our rifleB, looked to see
if the powder was up in the nipples
and put on our caps.
While this waa doing the Iii

deep drawn, murderous growls.
Having secured the three hors
one another by their reins, we
them on as if we intended to pass
in the hope of obtaining a broad
But she avoided to expose, preser
only her full front. I had g
Stofolus orders to shoot her if
should spring upon me.
Kleinboy was to stand readj
hand me my Purdy rifle in case
two grooved rixon should not p

stew, and I had a feeling that I c
place no reliance on them.
Now, then, for it ! She is wi

to her. I knelt on one side, and

ball cracked loudly on her tawny '.
and crippled her in the shoulder t
which she charged with an appal
roar, and in the twinkling of an
ahe waa in the midst of ns.
The lioness sprang upon nj h
and fearfully lacerated his ribs
haunches with her teeth and claw
I was very cool and steady, b
must confess tb.it when the whole
fair waa over I felt that it was a \
awful situation, BS I had no fri
with me on whom I could rely.
When' the lioness sprang upon
steed I stood ont from the ho
ready with my Becond barrel for
first chance she should give of a c'
shot. This she quickly did ; for
quitted the horse and trotted sui!
past within a few paces of me, tah
one step to the left. I pitched
rifle to my shoulder, and in anot
second the lioness was stretched on
plain a corpse.
In the struggles of death she 1
turned on her back ; her mighty ai
hung powerless by her side, her lo1
jaw fell, blood streamed from
mouth and she expired. At the i
ment I fired my second shot, Stofc
allowed the three horses to esca
These galloped frantically across
plain, on which he and Kleinboy
stantly started after them leaving
standing alone and unarmed witl
a few feet of the lioness, which tl
from their anxiety to be out of I
wav, evidently considered capable
doing further mischief.-Excluir

Detroit Free Press.
A burly form-a thick neck-fi
covered with bristles-hands covei
with hair-a voice like the bellow
a bull-a natural swagger to his g
-eyes like a mad dog's-mouth
cleaner than a hog's-a blueterii
roaring, malicious brute !
Such was the Terror.
A mile away ".from the little to'

courage with half a pint of whisk?
It was a fluid which would have ki

Baw that they were loaded and in c

its sheath and tried the keen edge.
He was going to capture the tov
and mn it.
This thick-necked human brui
this swaggering, drunken, boastin
fighting beast, proposed to intimid?t
overawe, shoot, slay and kill. Tl
people had never seen him ; he won
show himself off. Some of them he
never heard of him ; he would si
that they remembered his name ac
the date of his visit.
In the town men were at work o
the streets-in the shops. Women s?

From the open windows of thescho?
house came the voices of the childre

hour of peace.

There was a woman. Her husbanc
was the first man shot, and her eyei
were upon him as he fell. She die
not scream out nor faint away. Hei
face turned whiter than chalk-she
gasped for breath two or three times
and then her teeth shut hard. The
sewing fell from her hand, and she
rose up, walked into the bedi oom
and was back in a moment with a
rifle. Kneeling down at the window
she pushed the barrel over the sill,
aimed straight at the Terror's head,
and pulled the trigger.
" Whoop ! Waugh 1 They call me
the Terror ! Come out and see me
He threw up his arms as the rifle
cracked, and lurched out of the sad
dle to the ground, the bullet raking
his bkull. Three or four men ran to
him at once, and finding that he was
wonnded and stunned they tied him
stout and fast.
" Say, men," he called as his senses
came back, 11 What doeB this mean ?
Come, untie me ! I was only in fun,

" Yon must die !"
It was the voice of the woman who
had fired the shot, and she still held
the rifle in her hands. Twenty feet
away was the lifeless body of her hus
band. She did not even look at it. J
" You don't mean it !" gasped the
Terror. You wouldn't murder me for
my little joke !
M Get a rope !"
The voice of the woman had the
ring of steel in it and her eyes had
auch a etoDy, merciless look that men
retreated a step. A rope was brought.
" For God's bake ! don't murder

The woman made a noose with her

"Oh ! have mercy ! I'm an innocent

With her own hands she placed the
noose over his head, and then stepped
back and said :
" Every old take hold !"

Twenty strong arms walked away
