A Lioness Whipped by a Donkey.
On Wednesday afternoon, while a
boy was leading a donkey in front |
of the animal cago in tlio gardens
of tho Zoological, Society, Cincin?
nati, Ohio, a two year-old lioness, in
a fit of rage, bounded against the
bars, which yielded and let it free'.
It immediately bounded on thel
donkey, which in the onset was |
thrown to the ground, tho boy es?
caping with a Blight scratch. I The
donkey was terribly lacerated about
the neck and hinder parts with the
claws and teeth of the lionessj but
made quite a brave fight for life,
displaying much of the stubornness
for which donkeys are proverbial.
At first both rolled on the ground,
the donkey underneath, but finally
the weaker animal succeeded in
temporarily, freeing himself, and
sinking his teeth in the back of the
lioness, gave her a vigorous shaking.
When released, the lioness gladly j
parted company with the donkey
and bounded through the park,
carrying consternation to tho curi?
osity-seekers who were scattered
through the garden. The animal
was finally brought down with a
load of buck-shot and died in a
Pope ^Pius IX is a gopd man,
and he ought to be.' 'The six white
silk capuchins he spoils in a year I
cost $80 apiece, his slippers are
worth from $25 to $50 a pair, and
a pair of his stockings never cost
less than $5.
