ICiM-apeil Iion Caught by an Elephant.
An exciting and remarkable scene oc
enrred yesterday at Barnsley, where
Day's menagerie is being exhibited.
The manager states that abont 4 o'clock
Bartlett, the keeper, accidentally left the
door of a cage containing yonng lions un
fastened. Bartlett was afterward sur
prised to see one of the lions loose. Hap
pily no siwctators were in the show at
the time. The keeper immediately armed
himself and sent for aid. Blank car
tridges were fired to keep the lion at bay.
Luckily, it came within reach of a power
ful elephant named Jumbo II, who was
fenced off by means of ropes and stakes
in one corner of the show. The elephant
seized the lion with his trunk round the
body, and placing his foot npon him
held him down. The keepers, who had
secured ropes, noosed them, and putting
them on the lion's legs secured and
dragged him into the cage. Westmin

Did Mr. Jolin Kelly do the'rTght thing,
or did he do the wrong thing, yet the
only thing possible under the circum
stances? According to his story he was
dining in a restaurant with a woman
when the latter complained of the too
manifest n'Jiinration of two elderly men
"who sat at a able near. Kelly was
abont to remonstrate when, so he says,
they got up and, on pretense of looking
at a picture which hung over the table,
one of them addressed a remark to his
companion. Mr. Kelly smote the in
truder between the eyes, breaking his
glasses, and was arrested. It is a repeti
tion of Guy de Maupassant's story of
"The Coward" over again, except that
Mr. Kelly was courageous. But what
was he to do? A cat mny look at a king,
says the proverb. Yet if the way of
looking was objectionable, what was

This Happened In C'lticuco.
A little Chicago .Vyear-old (everything
happens in Chicago this summer) was,
according to a raconteur on a suburban
piazza last week, at one time bidden by
her mother to be very good on a certain
evening when the pastor and hLs wife
were to take tea with her parents.
''You must not speak unless yon are
spoken to; if yon really want anything
you must ask fur it very prettily and
properly," was the oft rejieated injunc
tion of the mother, and the child sat
down at the table with a crushing sense
of the importance of the occasion.
As the meal progressed she found her
self in need of something. The minister
Bat next her, and after due consideration
she decided to appeal to him. "Mr. A.,"
she began, raising her grave blue eyes to
his face, "will yon please, for Christ's
sake, to pass me the butter?" New York

With the exception of Lord Carring
ton (who did very well indeed) the offi
cial actors in the ceremonial at the
duke's wedding appeared to be very im
perfect in their parts, and it is a wonder
that no accident took place. It was odd
indeed to nee a uumlier of aristocratic
personages walking backward with the
appearance of lx'iug saturated with the
most slavish servility, but even more
grotesque and remarkable were the con
stant nnd profound bowings and scrap
ings of all the courtiers.
Lord Palmerston once remarked to
Lord Dalling, who refuted the saying to
Charles Lever, "What a happy arrange
ment it is that in an age when our flun
keys aspire to be gentlemen there are
gentlemen who ask nothing better than
to be flunkeys," and he never said a bet
ter thing. London Truth.
THE LEGEND OF EVtU
This is the sorrowful story
Told when the twilight fails.
And the monkeys walk together
Holding each other's tails:
"Our fathers lived ia the forest;
Foolish people were they.
They went down to the cornland
To teach the tinners to play.
Our fathers frisked In the millet,
Onr fathers tl ipped in the wheat.
Our fathers hut in the branches.
Our fathers di.need in the street.
Then came tin terrible farmers.
Nothing of pit y they knew.
Only they caught our fathers
And set them to labor too!
"Set them to w irk in the cornland.
With plows and sickles and flails:
Put them in mudnallcd prisons
And cut off tl eir beautiful tails!
"Now we can ti au-h our fathers.
Sullen and bn .ved and old.
Stooping over t ie millet,
Stirring the s lly mold.
"Driving a fool h furrow.
Mending a ni':ddy yoke.
Sleeping in mud walled prisons,
Meeping tlu i food in smoke.
"We may not s eak to our fathers.
For if the far nep knew
They would cone up to the forest
And Fi-t i to lalxir too!"
This i the honible Mory
Told as the tv iiight fails.
As ttie monkeys walk together
Holding each othe r's tails.

It had always Iwen the habit in the
Ward family if tn-o relatives differed
strongly to arrange not to lie on speaking
terms. Dr. Willia n G. Ward was once
asked how much he had known of his fa
ther's first cousin, Sir Henry Ward. He
replied quite gravely: "I only saw him
twice once as a 1hv, when he came to
see my father, and then again I had an
interview with hit 1 about a matter of
business son after I came into my prop
erty. We arrange 1 at the end of it not
to be on speaking terms," quite a super
flous arrangement, as Sir Henry Ward
lived at that time in Ceylon, of which he
was governor, am" in fact never came
again to England f ir a prolonged visit.
Dr. Ward and li s brother Henry had
been estranged for a year or so, aud one
night they met at the Haymarket thea
ter. Each of thei 1 had for the moment
quite forgotten the quarrel, and friendly
greetings passed, and they had a talk
about the play. J.'ext morning came a
letter from Henry Ward:
Dear William 1 1 the hurry of the mo
ment tonight I quit.- forgot that we had ar
ranged to meet us strangers, and I write this,
lest you should misu iderstnnd me. to say that
I think we had better adhere to u Arrange
ment, and I remain, lear William, your affec
tionate brother. Henuv W'Aitn.
Dr. Ward replie 1 :
Dear Henry I. too, had forgotten our ar
rangement. I agree with you that we hail tet
ter keep to it, and I remain your nfTVnionate
brother, w. O. Ward.

It cost the people of the United State
about $25,000 in a couple of hours the
other day to settle in the minds of the
officers of the ordnance bureau whether
some armor plates made by the Carnegie
and Bethlehem steel works respectively
were as good as they ought to be. It
was found that they were, and what
that means can be imagined when one
of the plates was 17 inches thick, weighed
31 tons, and was attacked by shells
weighing 850 pounds each, the last ones
fired from a 12 inch gun at a distance of
only 319 feet, striking it with the force
needed to move a mass of 21,600 tons, or
43,000,000 pounds, through a foot of
space. The projectile went through.
We take it that that did not surprise
even the experts, who are used to think
ing about those inconceivable masses
and velocities. But what did surprise
them was that' the hole it made was
nearly as clean cs if it had been drilled,
and that not a crack appeared about its
edges. Though this particular projec
tile was l..st having been deflected and
fallen into the Potomac the other pro
