The reporter tool one step backward anti

which puimrated the inhthilhii coiiipfirtmiat front

And rluht then occurred poinothlnc whir

II H wacnt n ploco of bras dohi didnt fee
binui nt allit was dimply a purely mprhanl
cm notion The proof of this Is that ho dlsrov
ured with suriii Iso after hn hnd come out of the

As soon i 11 Manager Conldln had pulled the
hi > lt of that deer from its catch the lion epruni
ncalitbt It und forced It open He was closely <
hollowed tic the lionets rite two great nnl
mills bounded oauorly Into tho middle com
luirtimmt where the two men whom they could
hate killed ut ono blow wore awaiting them
Tho presence of a Mrarger coined tooxello

Conklln carried cut full In the lions face It I
ivas n cruel blow but It was a necessary one
As tho liun fell itc sting be snarled and xhowoi

who hud struck him and he boundod buck Into
tbo compartment from which he had come
The llones followed close after him
A boon as they hind lr > ni od in MnnncorConk

could do so the lion had dashed against It 1
nmdn iiiid l xvns hack In the middle uompartnien
inure enraged tlmu evor This time the lioness

cd hot ugly disposition
She backed into the corner of the comcnrt

nil her teeth us flho swayed her body from side
to side uf neat does when about to spring upon
a biid Her bate was bounding about the
vompirttueiit like a rubber bull Twice ha
npinng Into the air as high as the reporters
head
But Jlnnngor Conklln knew where the great
cr danger lay Ho Bppeared not to notice tile
lion at all The lioness claimed all his atten

ho dealt this crouching lioness a blow across
thn see which brought her lo her senses In

leaped buck Into her compartment followei
this time by Ihe lion
Manager Cunklm hud failed to fasten the
door Lofore but not PO this time WIth a
movement as rapId as that of the lions born
solvps ho wns at the door in n flash and hat

rare when they found that they could not ret

If bo could have only broken into whore the
lion taiuir and the reporter stood he woubl
have totu thorn to pieces hi the twinkling of

instead of n rawhide whip to have subdued
him and it may bo remarked that redhot Irons
are not kopt oimtlminlly on hand In Madison

the tiger thrust one great paw between the
