STORIES OF ADVENTURES WITH
THE KING OF BEASTS.
A Lion Tlmt Carried Off a Cow Weighing
500 Pound. Traps In Which the rteiuta
Are Taken Alive Saved by Imitating;
the Hark ol a IR.
We were oa camped in a grove on the
bank of a cre;k, our party numiiering over
tbirty peopla We bad horses, oxen, wagons
and dogs, and were spread out over two acres
of ground. It. was in the lion country, and
they might be expected to approach at night,
but on the second afternoon of our camp,
whilo all were engaged in cleaning up and
making rena;rs, an alarm was suddenly
raised. I aupaosud that some of the animals
had stampede 1, and ran around the wagon
to get a cloar view of the space between us
and the creek This creek was 200 feet away,
and was so i early dry that one could step
across it. The bank on the other side was
rocky ground, pretty thickly covered with
scrub, and right on tho brink stood one of
the largest li-ns I ever saw. He was out in
full view, he: d and tiil up, and stood so still
for a moment that I doubted if he was alive.
There was m 1 ght breeze blowing toward
us, and as s.n ns our animnls got the scent
it required tl e efforts or every native to pre
rent them fi-oin breaking away. My guns
were being cleaned and oiled, and my two
white compa lions wero looking after their
horses. No one hr.d the least idea that the
lion meant nisehief, and we were presently
dumfounded to see him spring across the
creek and cmie walking into camp. We
measured his leap and found it to be twenty
eight feet. .Ie neole it without an effort. I
was to tho riht of him, and the center of the
camp was hi t objective point. Tho lion ad
vanced at a -valk, uttering no sound, and the
shouts, sere ims" and whoops of the men,
backed by tl e le!lowiiig of tuseattle and the
snorts of th horses, had no effect on him.
COOL AND BUSINESS LIKE.
We had a new milch cow tied to the wheel
of one of thi wagons, ami tho lion advanced
to within th rty feet of her, nnd then mado a
spring which landed him fairly upon her
back. Sho fell in a heap, and he seized her
by tho neck, gave her two or three shakes,
which broke the grass ropo around her head,
aud he then got his right shoulder under her
and started off. The cow weighed at least
500 pounds, but he carried her with perfect
ease, her hind feet dragging on the ground.
At the creel: he made u jump of eleven feet,
ascended a t loping bank without a halt, and
soon disappeared in the broken ground with
his prey. He was gone before we bad a gun
ready. Indeed, we wero lucky not to have
lost half ou animals. I was no greenhorn
in the animal business at that date, but this
was the first time I had ever witnessed such
cheek in a lion. Had 1 been told that he had
such couraje and coolness I should have
laughed th.- statement to scorn.
As soon as order had been restored the
three of us mounted our horsesnnd, preceded
by five or six natives and their dogs, crossed
the creek aid took up the trail. After going
about half t mile we discovered tho lion sit
ting beside the carcass in a little hollow. He
was sitting up like a dog, head turned to
ward us, but as soon as he saw us divide he
ran off v.ith his tail down, evidently
thoroughly alarmed, and such was his speed
that we soon lost him. We could count on
his returning to the body during the night,
and the natives were therefore set to work
to dig a pit and conceal it. They regarded
the lion as being as cunning as he was wise,
and the pit was not dug near the body, but
thirty feet away from it and in the direction
iu which it. was believed he would drag the
If a lion or tiger leave a body during the
day and rt turns to it at night the first act is
to drag it some distance, as if fearing an am
buscade. While the rule is not invariable, it
holds good iu most cases. During tho night
a dozen lions scented around our camp, but
without causing nny alarm, nnd soon nfter
daylight tiio natives went out. to investigate
tho trap. No hunter ever had such a wind
fall before or since. As night came several
lions must have scented the carcaft, and
gathered Tor a feast. The rightful owner ob
jected, of course, and there was a fight, the
result of which was that three full grown
males tumbled into our pit. This fact did
not prevent others from picking the carcass
clean. O:io of tho captives was the cheeky
old fellow who bad entered our camp, and
the other two wero fully ns largo. In the
course of tho forenoon wo had them out and
in the rages, and two of them are in the
United States today in zoological gardens.
There ore plenty. of instances where men
have lieer seized by lions and lived to relate
the partii ulars, though no two agreo as to
sensations. A week subsequent to our cap
ture of the throe lions I had been out with
some of t le natives to prepare a bait in a
rocky ratine. We had built a stout pen of
rocks and logs and placed a calf as a bait.
The sun v.-as nearly down as we started for
camp, an I no one had the least suspicion of
the presence of danger until a lion, which
bad been crouching tieside a bush, sprang out
and knocied me down. In springing upon
his prey the lion or the tiger strikes as he
seizes. 7 his blow of the paw, if it falls on
the right siiot, disables tho victim at once.
I was so near this fellow that be simply
reared up, seized me by the shoulder and
pulled mi down, and I was flat on the earth
before I realized what had happened. I was
on my buck, and be stood with both paws on
my middle, facing the natives and growling
savagely. The men ran off about 300 feet
and then halted, which was doubtless the
reason w hy I was not carried off at onco. I
can say without conceit that I was fairly
cooL It had come so suddenly that I had not
had titnit to get rattled. I had lieen told by
an old Boer hunter, if I ever found myself in
this fix, to appeal to tho lion's fears. ' Had I
mrtved riy arm to get my pistol, the beast
would h ve lowered his head and seized my
throat. So long as I lay quiet lie would
reason '.hat I was dead, and give his atten
tion to t he natives.
All of a sudden I barked out like a dog,
followed by a growl, and that beast jumped
twenty feet in his surprise. Ho camo down
between mo ami the natives, and I turned
enough to seo that his tail was down and
that he was scared. I uttered further barks
and growls, but without moving a band, and,
after m iking a circle clear around me, the
lion su ldenly bolted and went off with a
scare vhich would list him a week. If you
had picked up a stick and discovered it to be
a snako you would do just ns tho lion did.
He supposed he had pulled clown a man.
The man turned into a dog. It appealed to
After the lion had gouo I grew so weak
that I had to be carried to camp. He had
inflict 1 a pretty bad bite on my shoulder,
and it was a fortnight before 1 could bold my
gun for an offhand shot. I had the presence
of a fourth captive during this time to con
sole mc, however. Ho animal went near the
calf on the first or the second night, but on
the third we captured a fine half grown
male, And got him cazed without trouble.
Curiously enough, he had offered the calf no
violent e, being overcome by the situation,
and when we found him tho two seemed on
the bettof terms. Cor. New York Hun.

THE SPECTRAL BOAT.
Account f a Strange Thing Seen on tho
Af a small party of ladies and gentlemen
were returning home from attending a social
near this locality, they witnessed a very
strange spectacle. Ou arriving at the Ten
nessee river, and just before crossing, there
was heard a loud scream, accompanied by a
splash, as if some heavy object had been
thrown into the water. Each one of the
party noticed the strange occurrence and
In a few moments more a mysterious skiff
was observed to put out from the shore, con
taining four persons, a woman and three
men. One of the strangers proved to be a
silent oarsman, and, though the oars we're
seen to dip regularly, yet not a single sound
could be detected es coming from them.
But the figure of a lady sitting upright in
tho bow of the boat and dressed like a bride
was quite conspicuous. One of the party
appeared to hold a lantern, which shone
dimly. All of a sudden the rays of a mag
nificent light, considerably brighter than the
moonlight and very similar in intensity to
that produced by electric currents, appeared
and shot its rays directly around the skiff so
that tho water and objects became remark
To the spectators the lady's face was dis
covered to bo of tho Grecian type and very
pretty ,and her hair was wreathed with orange
blossoms. The trousseau w.-i3 so extremely
eiegant that this modem Cleopatra seemed
almost entirely enveloped in a lovely soft
haze On this little vessel floated silently,
lio a pilgrim bark, until the spectators began
to quito lielicvo it could be none other than
a reality. Never did a boat glide more
smoothly, and the siglitseersdeclare that they
heard tho lieautiful tones of a well known
inspiring song coming from the occupants of
Tho ladies and their companions on shore
watched the little craft most eagerly, expect
iug that they would soon have an oppo'rtu
tuuity to solve the wonderful spiritual enigma
that has long lieon a great puzzle to many
individuals in this vicinity. But they were
doomed to disappointment, as just before the
spiritual skiff and passengers hud reached a
position opposite to where they stood on the
ban'i the light, lioat and all of its occupants
vanished in a twinkling, and, though the
party of lad:cs and gentlemen made diligent
search, yet not another trace of the fairy skiff
and its occtiiauts was visible.
This is not the first time that thij wonder
ful boat nnd its human cargo have lieen seen
on their voyage down the Tennessee. An old
fisherman, who lives further up tho liver,
declares that he has many a time witnessed
the same phantoms stealthily gliding over the
surface of the water, anil on one occasion he
was accosted from the boat hy a sweet voice,
which spoke in an unknown tongue, and ap
parently beckoned for assistance.
There are many theories advanced regard
ing these strnngo sights. Some of the oldest
settlers coutend that the occupants of the
skiff represent Indians, and that the bride,
while on the way to meet her intended hus
band, a chief, was drowned, as well as the
balance of tho jiarty. In revenge tho chief
cursed the river for its treachery and bid its
waters to never again do an injury to the
red man, aud from that day to this not an
other Indian was ever known to die in its
Another story is that during tho early
pioneer days of Kentucky a prominent Ken
tuckian became greatly enamored of a cer
tain beautiful young lady, and tho placo aud
time were arranged for their marriage nup
tials. Her parents, however, objected, aud
did everything in their power to prevent the
wedding. But the lover sent three young
men to bring his bride, aud the young lady
stole from home by night and was being
taken down the river in a boat to meet her
affianced, when suddenly tho craft capsized
and all were drowned. The lover, greatly
aggrieved over his loss, immediately left that
section of the country and was never after
ward heard of.
To see this strange phantom is regarded as
an ill omen, and thoro are many persons who
cannot bo induced to go uear this river after
night for fear that they may unwillingly be
compelled to w itness tho bridal boat specter.

Need of Onr "Society."
Not long since 1 went one afternoon to St.
Denis, which, as everybody knows, is a god
forsaken suburb of historic interest. It was
a bright, lieautiful afternoon, but the narrow
stn-et was dark and dirty, and especially de
pressing after our visit to tho tombs under
the famous church which is the last resting
place of the kings of Franco. Drawn up by
the gutter stood a huge dray filled with sacks
of charcoal, and a young, brawny man, hav
ing npiarently deposited some of his load,
was about to start up the horse as I reached
him. Ouo of those brindle bull pups that
provail in Paris was prancing on the side
walk in a mild state of Joy at seeing the mas
ter preparing to depart after having made a
long visit in the neighboring wine shop.
Expectation, excitement, anxiety, in fact
every canine emotion, animated that pup's
ugly little mug, and I was just thinking how
tho lowest of mankind is capable of inspiring
love in a dog's heart, and what faithfulness
wagged that stumpy tail, when the human
brute wantonly kicked him with such force
as to bowl him clotn across the sidewalk.
Then, having shown this amiable recogni
tion of the dog's eager welcome, the man
t-eized him by tho scuff of the neck aud tossed
him into the cart.
For a moment I not only longed for our
efficent society, but for a cowhide to apply
where it would do the most good. All sorts
and conditions of meu are known to mal
treat creatures weaker than themselves, but
I never witnessed a more gratuitous display
of cruelty to an animal than this, and it
fairly darkcued the whole day. I shall never
think of St. Denis and Marie Antoinette's
coffin without seeing that pathetic brindle
pup half killed simply because he had the
bad taste to love a savage master! There
are so many Americans living iu Paris it is
surprising no movement is made to introduce
our efficient system of prevention of cruelty
nnd so inspire the French society to bo not
merely an organization in name. The field
for work is, indeed, wide, but I am sure a
great deal more could be doue if some of our
influential people at home would agitate the
mutter. Though the task seems almost hope
less in a population as numerous as this, yet
ouee mato the laws sufficiently stringent aud
the Fcench government will be an able coad
jutor. For laws are not broken here with
impunity. Cor. Boston Herald.

their own Instead of Hood's; he told me their's
would last longer; that I might take it on ten
days' trial; that if I did not like it I need not
pay anything, etc. But lie could not prevail
on me to change. I told hiin I knew what
Hood's Sarsaparilla was. I had taken It, was
satisfied with it, and did not want any other.

I was feeling real miserable, suffering
a great deal with dyspepsia, and so weak
