of the keepers iu Barnum'a menagerie,
bad a Barrow escape from death yesterday
morning. Belle, the fierce young African
lioness, got her claim on him while he was
attending to her cubs, and dragged bis
leu leg through tbe bars of her cage. The
prompt action of George Coakling, tbe
tamer of wild beasia, who has been with
Barnum for years, alone saved the uniort
anate keeper from a horrible death. As it
was, his leg was terribly lacerated above
and below tbe knee. The lionets remained
very much excited all day, and roared and
jumped at the bars of her cage wbenevei
any one approached.

I can enter the cage of every animal ia
