10 OFF IY- A LION.
V -5! f ExMriflt of a Rangtr In
fcjf th Trnvil.
'Two m at test twve given ac
cottou oC titelr Mtiwtlona when they
were carried off by lions the great ex
plorer Llvlngsttae and a man named
Wolbutw, a ranger of frame preserves
In the Transvaal. Woihuter's adven
ture la, not secondary la interest to
Livingstone's experience. Ills story,
which was attested by the certificate
of the magistrate of the district, was
substantially as follows:
ne. was riding along a Kafir path
abeutan hour after sunset It had
been a long: inarch, and he had pushed
on ahead of bis companions. Ills dog
barked at something, and a moment
later Wolhuter saw a lion crouching
,cloee to him on the right hand side.
Th ranger turned his horse sharply.
a circumstance tnat no doubt caused
the lloa to nilss the spring.
Wolkuter was unseated. At the same
moment he saw another lion coming
from the opposite direction. The
horse rushed off, with the first Hon
in pursuit, and the second Hon picked
Wolhuter up almost before ho touched
the wound and irrluned him bv the
right shoulder in such a position that
lie was face up, wlt.b his legs and body
ragging underneath the beast. The
Ion trotted down the path, uttering a
loud, growling, purring noise.
Woihuter's sensations -were not those
of Livingstone, who satd, he was In a
state.of apathy, with cntireabseuco of
pain during the time the lloa had him.
Tho game ranger suffered terribly",
both mentally and physically, and saw
no possiblo way of escape. The Hon
took; him nearly 200 yards.
Suddenly Wolhuter bethought him of
his sheath, knife, which bo carried In
his belt behind his right hip. On reach
ing a large tree with overhanging roots
tho Hon stopped, whcieupon Wolhuter
stabbed him twice In the side with his
left band. It was ascertained after
ward that the first stab touched the
bottom of tho heart and that the sec
ond one slit it down for some distance.
The lion immediately dropped Wol
huter, and again tho gamo ranger
struck him. this time in the throat,
severing aa artery.
The lion Jumped back and stood fac
ing him, growling. Wolhuter scram
bled to his feet, shouting at the top of
his lungs. Ho expected the beast to
come at htm again, but It did not. In
stead, it turned slowly and, still growl
lng, went a few paces. Sooq Its growls

" ceased, and the ranger knew that thi
ut-usi waa lueu ueau.
ft Wolhuter got up the tree ns fast a:
his Injured arm would permit, an
hardly was' he seated when the firs
Hon. which had been after the horse
came back on the trail of blood. B
this time the plucky ranger was s
faint that be tied himself to the tn
to prevent himself from falling out
' lie was found by his companion
who took him td a place of safety. Th
Hon he bad killed was an old male, ani

'Training Seals is Easy.
According to an old trainer U la
a very simple trick to teach seals
the tricks they do in tho ring.
"The cardinal priciple In training
animals, eus ho Is not to attempt
to make an animal do anything con
trary to hte nature ofits particular
speclo3. To b3 successful a trainer
must know enough about the habits
of the animals he has under training
to fit the tricks he would teach them
to their natural bent
"The seal Is very easily taught.
You begin with one seal, acme small
pieces of Hish and a string. You let
tho seal sit on his pedestal, some
thing h ollke3 to do by nature
and easily catches it. Next you tie
a pleco of fish on the end of jour
string and swing it toward the seal
he catches this, too, and you kep
moving away from him and swinging
the fish to him from an increasing
distance. Now jou are ready to be
gin with the hat or cornucopila. You
put a piece of fish in the bottom of
it and toss It to tho sal. The seal
la dexterous by nature and his nose
qulokly detecting the fish in tho tip
of the cone seeks it out. Tiw com
catches on his snout and he bit 23
out of the fish and tossjs th cone
aside. Before long h ecomes to as
sociate the cone with fish and he
will catch any number of similar ones
and toss litem aside when he fails to
find what he wants.
Balancing the big rubber ball is
based on the same principle. The ball
is soaked in fishy brine and thrown
to the ,saal. Ho gets the odor and
tries his best to got into U10 ball
and find 'what he is after. This result
in his balancing tho ball on his nose,
a feat to which his supple neck and
hls natural feeding habits are all
Lado'itcd and. then lu g:rs his piece
of fish as. a. pnlz New York World.
The i Aton.ach is a larger factor in "life, liberty and th pur
suit of happlnets " than most people are aware. Patriotism
can withstand hunger but not dyspepsia. The confirmed dys
peptics "Is fit for treason, stratagems and spoils." The man
who does to the front for his country with a weak stomach
will be a weak soldier and a fault finder.
A sound stomach makes for &od citizensnip as well as fo
health and happiness.
Diseases of the stomach and other organs of digestion and
nutrition are promptly and permanently cured by the use of
