And the causes of all this riot of re-" Joicing yelped and howled dismally through the beatings of the ganzas and in the midst of the revelry, for they saw their finish. These causes were six cap tive dogs tied to the posts of the Igorrote quarters in the Cuartel. After nearly two weeks of enforced fasting from puppy steak and dog soup the tarnished head-hunters are at last to bo regaled with their cherished viands. Six dogs have been obtained, where or bow is kept a dark secret, and the dog kllllng time is contingent on how soon the canine victims shall have been fattened for the feast. But four of the dogs are to be sacrificed to the finicky cppetltle ot the Igorrote gourmands.

The two dogs which possessed the sav ing sift of good looks are a beautiful marked nater spaniel and a fuzzy Skye terrier. The four yelping victims all be long to the (feat yellow mongrel family. Just now the latter present a gaunt and unappetizing appearance, but with tender care and careful feeding the natives bops to have them ready for the slaughter very soon. In the meantime the Igorrotes, men and women, old and young, big and little, are all l the seventh heaven nt bliss over the promised feast, and at each sidelong glance directed toward their captive meat they lick their chops in unctuous anticipa tion. When the dog feast will take, place Is a matter that Governor Hunt will not divulge, but he says that it wUl certainly happen, whether the Humane Society will or no. "We are 300 yards outside the city limits," says the Governor, "and conse quently the gratification of the Igorrote appetite with the beloved dog-meat is not a matter with which the Humane Society has any concern. The natives like their dog morsels as well as the members of the society like their lamb chops and beef steak, and they shall have It." TELEGRAPH OFFICIAL! ARRIVES. Thomaa S.
