bcasts in Italy. IIc reprcscntcd a picct
in which, with appropriatc sccncry ol
palm trccs and ycllow sands, hc played
thc part of an Arab huntcr giving chase
to a couplo of pauthcrx. Aftcr thc
mimic death of onc, lic fmishcd by roll
ing and ilinging thc apparently dcad car
cass about thc stagc; but on onc occa
sion, slightly miscalculatingthc distance,
lic thrcw thc bcast upon onc of his sub
ordinatcs, and had a sdiarp tusslc bcforc,
by thc cxpedicnt of enveloping thc ani
mal in a blanket, hc was ublc to dctach
it from thc ranie-strieken assistnnt.
Thc most tcrriblc of all his battles was
fought on April 7, 1803, wlien plfiying I
witli a tiger at Ilethunc. Onc of thc
nudicncc had thc imprudencc to lling a
piecc of mcnt into thc cagc, and, though
thc pcrforuier dcxtcrouply vmslicd it aside '
with his foot, it was too late, as the i
bnitc liad smclt it and bceomc unman
ageable. Flinging itsclf on liim with a
savage growl, it torc oll part of his s-calp
in the iirst onsct ; and though hc wrcstlcd
witli it, and succceded in throwing it
back, it camc on again morc furious tlian
cvcr. A dcspcratc alternativc suggcsted
itself to him to prcsent his lcft ann to
its fangs, wliilc with all his force hc
dealt it such a blow with thc hcavy wliin
in his right hand as partially to stupefy
and compcl it to looc its hold. With
wonderful prcsence of mind hc cscaicd
from thc eage, and cndurrd a thirty-livc
days' illncss bcforc thc wounds healcd.
Yct, bcforc hc was rccovcrcd, still dis
ablcd, and with his arm in a sling,
l'aimali cntcrcd thc tiger's cagc again,
and stood gazing at it with foldcd nrms
as it prcparcd to s.pring on him.
" Ilcrc 1 am," hc said; " dcvour mc,
ifyoulikc!" Unt his dcmcanor cowed
the savago crcature. and, in!tead of at
tackiug him, it crouchcd at his feet. In
Amsteidam, f-hortly after, at thc requcst
of thc king, hc cntcrcd thc cagcs of all
the bcasts at thc Zoological ganlcns, and
appeared as much at homc with thcm aa
with thosc of his own collcction, receiv
ing 2,000 francs for thc cxhibition of his
powcrs. A tragical circnmstanee occurrcd
licrc, which caucd him much sclf
reproach. A young man of cighteen, thc
son of thc director of thc Zoological gar
(rens, importuncd him so earnestly to let
him entur the tiger's cage by himsclf
that hc conscnted, first taking thc prc
caution of expcrimenting on his ncrves
by accompanying him in a preliminary
visit, and fceling his pulse when hc camo
out. But thc unhappy lad paid dearly
for his anibition, for on vcnturing alonc
into thc tiger's lair during thc evening
pcrformanee, and being grcctcd with a
Midden growl by its inmatc, hc lled totho
door of thc cage, but was taken out life
less. During his travcls in his nativc coun
try Faimali was seen and admired by
Victor Kmanuel, who prescnttd him with
fcevcral animals, and, among others,
with a ficrco lioncss, on coudition of his
promising ncvcr to entcr hcr cage. Fai
mali gavc his word, but brokc it im
mcdiately, unable to rcsist thc tcmpta
tion of taming by kindness a creaturc
whoe disposition hc believed to havc
bccn poured bv harsh trcatment. Know-
mg the king to havc left Florence, and
unawarc that hc had only gonc to San
Hossore, hc advcrtiscd a performancc in
which he would nppcar with this un
tamable beast; but what was his dismay
to sec the royal party in )lain clothes
nmong the audienco! ilevainly rcmained
in hiding behind the scencs after thc cx
hibition was ovcr, for thc king t-ent him
word ho would not leavc without secing
him; and crestfallen and guilty ho had
to appcar. Victor Kmanuel was seriously
displeased, rcproaching him with having
broken his word: but cventually forgavc
him when Faimali cxclaimed that bcasts,
likc mcn, were spoilcd by over-scverity;
and the intcrview cnded in the king's Uc
ilaring him prince of lion-tamcrs.

A New Hcvcraire from 3Iilk.
Tho Jlritish Jfcdicnl Journal says:
Whilc during thc last fcw ycnrs koumiss
has bccn iutroducel into Westcrn Eu
rope, and cvcn into America, a new
drink prcparcd from cow's milk, by a pro
ccss of fcrmcntatiou imperfectly under
ftood, is coming into ute in Kussia. This
drink is kclir, and has for a long timc
formcd thc chicf articlc of diet
among thc mountainccrs in thc
ncighborhood of 3It. Elbruz and Kas
bek in thc Caucasus. It fonns a thick,
white fluid, with a faintly acid llavor,
(aid to resemblc ccrtain light wincs.
Thc mountainccrs themsclvcs call it
"ghippo." Thc hihabitants of thc
plains ncar the Caucasus and thc.Kussian
settlers, who term it kclir, kilir or khia
far, make use of it, not for the tablc, but
ns a popular remedy for anaemia, struma
gastric catarrh and chronic bronchitis.
According to thc 3roscow Jfedieal Gu-
tcttf, whcre a contril)ution on thc subjcct
has reccntly nppcnrcd, Dr. Kern being
the nuthor, thc preiaration of kclir is
vcry simple. The mountainccrs make it
by lilling a bag mado of goatskin with
milk, then a tenaeious mass of thc sizo
of a walnut of a material which thcy
term " kclir seed," and thc prccisc origin
of which is nnknown, is added to tho
milk. In a fcw hours thc proccss of fcr
mcntatiou scts in nctivcly. When prc
parcd in woodcn or glass vcssels thc kefir
tastcs bcttcr. Aftcr a lapso of twenty
four hours a wcak kclir is produced.
When thc proccss is allowed to continuc
for thrcc days thc kclir becomes vcry
Btrong. Thc sourcc of tho fcnncnt fs
scrupulously conccaled by thc Caticasian
mnuntaincers, who cannot bc persuaded
to enlighten strangcrs to any grcatcr cx
tent than in supplying a small samjile of
tho fcnncnt, in thc form of dry, dark
brown, carthlikc masscs, but stcadfastly
refusing to gay whcncc thcy arc obtaincd.
Ono of thcse fragmcnts droppcd into milk
bcgins rapidly to clTcrvesce, turns milk
white, and assumcs thc form of a mul
bcrry; thcH fcrmcntation procceds at
once. If a picce thus transformed ho
droppcd into anothcr bowl of milk it
rapidly increascs in sizo and also causcs
fcrmcntation. Dr. Kcrn has carefully
examincd spcciniens of this " kefir secd,"
which consists chiellv of mascs ol
zoogtoa, holding togclhcr collcctions of
a bacterium which hc calls "Dispora
Caucasica." Thc ycast fungus, Sacchar
omyccs cercvisia.', is ahvays found asso
ciatcd with this new gcrm. "Kclir sccd"
retains its vitality aftcr rcmaiuiug for
months in its dry condition. Dr. Kern
lias a grcat bclief in thc ftituro of keilcr,
which has all thc virtues of koumiss, and
nosscsscs onc grcat advantagc ovcr thc

Usually tho agc of trecs is dctennincd
by tho numbcr of rings added cvcry ycai
to thcir circumfercucc. llut this is no
ccrtain test, for they constnntly dcvclop
vcry uncqunlly from thcir ccntcr, so thnt
in Bpecimcns preservcd in muscums grcat
inequality in tho rings may bc scen. For
cxamplc, in Kcw thero is a spccimcn in
which thcrc aro 200 rings upon ono 6idc

of rings cvcr countcd was upon an oak

710. But cvcn in cstimating tho agc of
this particular treo an nllownnco of 800
ycars wns mado to cover thc rcmaining
rings which it was no longcr possiblo to
couut. Such a couiputatiou ns this
nmounts in rcality to a littlo moro than
