St. Lons April fair grounds
wns yesterday tho scene nf an unusually
distressing and peculiar accident. John J.
Jennings, n reporter on the Post-Dispatch,
wus sent by his city editor to write a
lengthy notice about the winter quarters of
W. W. Cole's ciicus, which arc at the
grounds, and in the course of an interview
with George Conkling, the lion tamer, Jennings
ventured tho assertion that thcro
was no danger nttaehing to Mr.
Conkling's apparently thrilling appearance
in the midst of tho caged lions.
In substantiating his assertion he declared
his willingness to go into tho den, providing
Mr. t'uiii.liug made iho first entrance.
At first tho lion tamer laughed at Jennings'
proposition, but tho rcjKiiter bantered him
so much about it tiiat hu at last agreed to
let him go into the cage. Jennings is tho
same rash little geiitlomnn who allowed
llerrinnn, the magician, to file him out of a
(Million across the auditorium of the Grand
Opera-house into u net three joins
ago. Tho cannon tiick was done
during a perturnrince, ami tho
primalist had a very narrow
from breaking hi- iiovit. Yestenlay,
('oakling, ul.o hail boon handling lions
since 18iH, and who has two new lions in
the den, made hi first ciiirau'ec, whipped
the animals up, ami altor putting them
through their paces, came out. He "told
Jennings that tlieie was danger with tho
two new lions, and tried to dissuade him
from going in, but the reporter was rashly
ntulihiiru about I he thing, and armed
with Conkling' s sniiul ran hide, wont
(Mildly into the don. Coi kliug stood at the
i ae doors and lied the animals closely,
ready, at a moment, to run in to the newspaper
nniu iiiisisuiiioe. The linns lay close
to the iWlrs of the rime hs Jennings gfttod
it th- center, mid divided their attention
lietwo u t ho reporter it ml Conkling. They
.Towlod fiereclv, nml gl.ti od at tho
but Jennings shook ihc law hide
.oa.uiI tliem, and at last touched Sandy,
uo of the old lions, on t he rump, whetoat
ho ran across the stasc, followed by two of
the other., and the three animals
weio jumping about obeying tho reporter's
o -1 of "ititid, leaping over
he whip ami h nig down as cleverly as
shey could do lor Conkling himself. The
iioii tamer said nothing, but hud his hand
in the cage door, watching Jennings and
the animals as they fhifted positions. The
.opotler had been in the cage probably two
minutes, when he started to put "George,"
(he second of tho old lions, through the
i riek of jumping over his back whilo lie
leaned forward. He touched tho animal's
I'm epaws with the whip just as Conkling
dues, and over tho reporter's back went old
"George." Ono of tho now lions just put
into the cago this winter, in attempting
to follow George, knocked Jennings
down, lie fell toward a corner of the
stage, in which tho second new lion Unit
had refused to tako part in the amateur
lion tamer's performance had remained lying
throughout tho wliolo time. " Lo k
out!" shouted Conkling, dashing into the
cage and making a divo for tho prostrate
newspaper man. Ho was too late, however.
Tho lion's claws fell on the top of Jennings'
head, and toro nway almost tho entiro scalp,
A second stroke toro the reporter's shoulder
open, and, as Conkling dragged him
away, the lion's claws woro fastened
in the shoo of his left foot, and toro tho
covering off. Conkling had tho palm of
his right hand opened by ono of the animal's
olaws. Thero was tho greatest uproar
in the cago for a few minutes, the
lions roaring and rushing about while
Conkling thrust Jennings through the cage
door to two assistants, and remained
behiud to belabor tho animals into
quiet with a short bur of iron.
Jennings was tsikon from tho ground
and tho physicians fear that
ho is Bt'utrtlly injured. Great indignation
prevails among tho journalist's friends who
heard of tho accident, and thero is talk of
having Conkling arrested, first, for having
allowed Jennings to expose himsolf to such
danger, and in the second placo for not
telling Jennings that the lion that' injured
him was bad, and is always kept chained
in a corner of tho cage. This latter
is a faot. Conkling himsolf
nover ventures within reach of this lion.
Ho is, thorcforo, to blame for allowing
Jennings to risk his life iu tho rash manner
in which ho did.
