Animals Became I n manageable and
Wound a Lion Tamer.
During the performance of the trained
bears and leopards at Hagen beck's circus
in the Midway plaisance the animals be
came unmanageable and began a desperate
fight in the arena. Fritz Maas, a lion
tamer, attempted to separate them and
was attacked by the bears. Before the at
tendants could drive the maddened beasts
from him be was severely clawed and bit
ten. A physician was called in to attend
his injuries. The building was crowded
at the time and the audience became
greatly excited and a panic was narrowly
averted. "With music, floral display, speeches and
the ringing of the new liberty bell, the
Pacific Coast people celebrated yester
day the anniversa-y of the discovery of the
Pacific Oceau by Balboa. The bell was
encircled witn oak leaves and California
flowers and the rope attached to the clap
per was adorned in the same manner.
The official woman's flag of silk fluttered
in the cool breeze at the side of the bell
and outside the ropes several hundred
people stood to hear the bell and the
speeches. The flower-clad rope was pulled
by Mrs. E. O. Smith, president of the
California board of lady manager; Mrs.
A. M. Marsellus, vice president, and Mrs.
Alice Houghton, representing Washing
ton state. A reception and lunch at the
California building followed.

every country of the earth. An education
