clnet W lthout any 0110 ol u having a
vtry clear coiieiplion of our nctiom or in
tentions, wo h iled the proposition with
drunken rapture and i-tartcd fonh.
A travel I in.; 11 cnagcrie hail ariived in
town tlio d.iy Ii foiu and among iho won
1I1 rj was a y. ung boar. Tlie poor animal
h d been so well beaten that ho became
very humble, and acquired 11 number of
ainmin,. tricks. 01 this wo wcro allawaic,
hiviu; visited tho menagerie tho day be
for... .Just as we pas ed tiio spot where
ihu aniui .Is were eoi.lined, it occurred to
mo what r re sport it would bo to capture
young liiuin and pl.ico him in the chemi
cal room, to u.-touUh 011 the next day, tlio
professor and tho diss.
No sooner had I undo tho proposition to
Iii cil'ect than it was adapted, and all
volunteered their asUtmco in carrying it
into cxeeutiju. The text or pavillion
which covered the beast was erected in the
yard of lhe principal tavern. The cages,
each containing on e or more animals,
wcro iron nr.itod boxes, standina on wheels
moaiu of which they had been dragged
into town. Thoy woro arranged around
tlie interior of tho tent, toriunig a circular
airiyof wood and iron. Wot imasuuns
1'iat any ono would disturb the animals tliu
showmonand inmates left tho ton's entirely
unwatehed. Thus wo wcro afforded a cloar
field in which to execute our scheme.
After several of our number had been post
ed as sentinels, tho rutt crept in under tho
canvass and cutorcd the arena. It was
sometime boforo wc could, in tho dcepdark-
ness of the place, tdoutily tUocagciu wlncli
our friend Uruin had been put to sleep.
After stumbling over divers things which
hy scattered about, and peering hero and
there in tho dark, wo lound tho object of
nur search. Thero in a substantial cage
was tha dim outline of the ouimal, bis two
whito eyes flashing droops of firo at being
aroused from his quiet slumber.
Tlio next difficulty tint occurred to us
win tlm irtndn nf cnnve.vinrr 111 111 to the
college, which was several hundred yards

hecshcad and drivo tho animal iu. We
would then nuMidown tho lid of tho cask,
secure it by moans ofaropo pissed through
tho staple-), and roll our prisoner and pri
son house to tho college.
No sooner was this suggested ihau wo
hastened to put it into execution. Tho
cago, with our united efforts, was slid
quietly down from tha whoch-Uruin grow-
ling all tho whilo with anger tho hogs -
head was rolled in and placed upon end

i i . t it. i .1
curseu tlio unruly beasts ur uostroying ,
tho unity of their rest, and turning back
went to sleep again.
1 As soon as quiet was restored, we slit a
, hole in tho cinvass, (or wo were afraid to
emerge by tho aperturo which faced the
tavern, rolled our hogshead through tho
. j ard to tho back gate. Th's wc unfasten
ed and pas3 d into tho road st irtcd at a
( quick ratu for our spot of destination.
1 Uvcr and over went tho hogshead, tho an
imal within growling at tho rough treat-
ii.cnt lie experienced, and wo nearly eon
i vulscd witii laughter at tho uocoulhuess of
! tho noiso which ho made.
At length wo reached tho back pirt of
tlio college, when ono of our party climbed
over tho' wall and unfastened tho gale, wo
rolled in our prize to tlio back door of tho
laboratory, which was tho plaeo where our
professor of chemistry lcciurod. Wo l'ounu
that in consequence of tho narrowness of
the passage through tho door, tho hogshead
would not enter. Suoh being tho oise, we
wcro thou about to stirt tho animal
through tho open door, when an idea moro
redolent of fun struck the fancy of Somers,
liack nf tho lecture ro m was a sm; 11 ap
artment containing odds und ends, and
which was not visited, perhaps onco a
month. Ho said rightly, that if wo placed
l'ruin in this apartment ho won't! not be
likely to bo discovered until some time dur
ing tho noise ho would make, attracting at
lention, tho plot would readily bo brought
to a crisis. Wo joined our strength, and
upon our i-houlders up went lhe hogshead
until it was placed on a level with tho win
dow. A 1 ght young fellow, tho simllcst
of tho party, climbed up, hoisted up the
ViimluiT nml oliilod tlio Hi1 nf tlie cask. We
shook tlio hogsheid violently, but at first
to no puipn.sc. Tho animal was thorough
ly frightened and lay still, or with only an
occasional grottl. We shook it again and
ho started. 'I hero was but ono possible
nude ot progression, which was right
straight forward and the biuo gavo a
spring through the window. Thero was a
crash of glass, a howl, and then tho terri
fied animal, crouching in tho corner, re
mained eilont. Ourlittlo companion closed
tho sash and leaped down. Wo rolled the
hogshead up in to a corner of tho yard,
and returning to our respective r ioma, con'
linucd our rovilry until noardaylight.
It wos about noon when I awoko. I
hurried on my clothes, pa?sod a wet towel
u round my head, swallowid Komo soda
water, nud afterwards a cup nf coffee, and
then hastened to the college. It was tho
hour of professor of chemistry, and I cn
tcroit tlio room just as thev bad com
menced to descant upon the subioct. Tho
class wore all wr ipt in attention for tho
lecturer was an alilo man, and was treat
ing upon "Light," a matter of interest and
capablo of beautiful illustration. Ho had
scarcely finished his short and eloquent
exordium, before wo heard tho crash of
bottles, and a low startling growling in tho
next loom, i no proicsor started, and
