Alone With the Gorilla.
Says a writer: we heard from a straggler
in the street that the fire was at Barnum's
Museum. This gave renewed force to our
feet and we fairly flow along the street.
When we reached the spot what a sight
was before us I The great building was
ablaze or. the two top floors, and several
streams were already pouring water on it.
'Tho night, or rather morning, was bitter
cold, and every bit of water that struck
the lower part of the street would freeze
at once. Even long stalactites of ice were
beginning to form on the adjoining build
ings where the hose was played on them,
and the red glare of the fire, now under
strong headway, lit them up like gold.
The suffering animals within the museum,
imprisoned and caged, began to moan and
roar. The fire, the ice, and the wild cries
of the poor animals, nade the night one
of horror indeed. Just at this innient,
with a gret crash, right throuirh a plate
glass window on the first floor, a splendid
tiger sprang. He lit in thc street and
stood for a moment at bay, and many a
voice li the crowd cried: "Shoot him
shoot him?" We hail given our hose to a
steamer, and the water being just let into
it the fireman with the nozzle put the
stream full against the aninal. Its force
and wasb carried him off from his feet,
and a moment afterwards "one of the
finest," with a revolver put two balls into
his body and finished him.
I then made my way into the burning
building from the basement and gained
the first floor. A flight of steps was before
nie, and at the top I could, through the
smoke, make out a door. I mounted the
stairs to render what aid I could. As I
got about to the middle the heat warped
and cracked the door, and it fell to one
side, and there beyond, making right for
these stairs, was the big gorilla l Oh,
never shall I forget that dread moment.
The big flames began to lick the walls, and
the whole space beyond that dreadful I
beast was a blaze of fire. The heat aid <
smoke were awful, and I felt my limbs I
shake as pals' 4 as I looked, spellbound,
at the awful I. v mass at the top of the
steps. I could hear the heavy thud of his
huge foot as he moved or ghded to the
stairs. 1 could see lis great, ionstrous
body writhe almost with heat. The stairs
were narrow, and, great heaven I when he
reached me what would beome of me I
I stood transfixed, spellbound with an
awful terror. One hand clasped the ban.
isters and one the wall, and I could not
have moved one finger on either of those
hands to have saved my life. I heard o
the axes of the firemen breaking through I
the floors I I thought a thousand thoughts i
in a second, but I could not niove a hair's
breadth. I even counted the steps between
the monster and miyself. There were but
six-only six littlo short steps between me I
and grim death. The beast caie slowly i
on, glaring horribly at me. There wero i
but four steps. W%ill lie seize me in i
those horrible arms of his, thought I, from E
which - the matted, coarse hair hung, and
toss mc into the burning, seething mass of
fire and flame beyond us I Another step I
he caie. Oh, heaven I but one little short
step now. I made a superhuman effort to
move, if but a muscle ; but alas I I could
not. The loathsome body of the brute
touched me. My breath came in gasps
anldl my heart stood still, awe-stricken.
One dread claw-like hand upon my shoul- I
der as the other arm of the wilt beast (
was raised to his neck. He tugge(i there I
a moment as if for breath and strength. j
Now I sickened and shuddered as lie threw F
the great mass of hair and hide over lis a
head and revealed a rough Celtic face t
within, and asked in hurried, frightened, R
and strong I-libernian tones: "For the love I
of St. Patrick show am the way out of this?" i

exp)lorers, M. Severtzov, has been dtelerib
lig the result of his observations to the
* Russian OIeogrraphical Society, one result
being the dissipation of theo aiccepted deC
lusion that the Pamir is a lateau. It is
not even a reg!on of steppes. There are,
indeed, valleys along the rivers up to a
height of 14,000 feet, but these are never
w 1der than 20 versts at the utmlost, andn no
* pFl'dns of greater breadth are to be foun:mi
in the whole regionl. Above these valleys
mlourtain ranges rIse to a height of 6,000
or 7000 feet ; many rliges attain an abso
- - lute height above the sea of 19,000 feet.
andh some eveni 25,000 feet. Trhe ridges of
the Pamiir all run in the (direction of the
meridlan, therchmi differing from the Tien
Shan range, which, according to the evi
*dence obtainedi by M. Sevcrtzov, must at
-one periodl have been separatedI from the
formcr by a great inlet of the sea. Although
- the region between the two ranf;c rises to
a height of 10,000 feet, they differ essen
ti~ally in geological structure. The Pamir ~
still seems to be rising in height, M. 8c- r

MILKING Cows. -Cows are generally
milked twice a day, sometimes oftener:
but twice Is enough, unless the cow sheds
her milk, or the udder is foand of insuf
filent capacity to hold It. The time re.
quired to milk will vary with the clroum
stances. When and where mtlking is done
for transportation to some distant market
early milking in the morning is neccessary.
It should be done regularly, whether it is
earlier or later. As a rule no milker
should be required to milk more than
twelve cows morning and evening; some
can milk fifteen cows, but generally one's
arms and hands get tired by the time
twelve cows are milked. The time for
milking a cow must vary according to con.
ditions- one cow may be milked in four
minutes, while an other may require fifteen
or twenty minutes in order to be milked
thoroughly clean. If milking is not care
fully, regularly and theroughly done, the
quality of milk produced will be daily
diminished. If any is left in the udder it

an interstice in the trellis about the porch.
The dog m as laying on the floor at hii
master's feet, and finally his attention was
oalled to the bird, which was looking
3teadily at him, The dog sprang up,
drew on the parrot and fastened. There
he stood, still as a statue, for full three
