Tbe monotony of part life was interest ingly interrupted Wednesday evening bv a noteworthy event that tet the entire Zoo community to gossiping, each tribe in the tongue of its kind, and all the particiimnta clamoring for the recognition of the chair at one and the came time. The incident was of domestic consequence in the royal lionine family, a handsome queen of tbe forest presenting her royal spouse with a quartet of active, sprawl ing, shrill voiced, kittens, whose njnics will be entered in the book of the next census taker. The mother lioness is the one donated to the Zoo by Forepaugh, and has been in the park since last October. She was herself born in captivity, but can trace her pene ology back to tLe dcutest of African Jungles, and has in her veins the purest of blue blood. The jKiternal Joint owner of the Interest ing quadruiJeta is one "Frank," a prince ot the royal line, whose distinguished ancestry loses nothing by comparison Willi thenobleat of his race. The mother and the "kids" are doing very well indeed, and there isevery prospect that the youngsters will live to celebrate the golden wedding ot their parent. They occupy a large retiring cage, and care is taken not to disturb themailame. Her tendency at this interesting period Is to extreme nervousness, and when In an excited frame of mind it is the habit of a lioness to turn cannlbal-and devour her young. The keepers arc therefore very cautious In their treatment of her, and they have not yet approached the cage except to administer tne dally allowance of food. It will be several weeks before the bruod will be transferred to other quarters, and even then the mother will be given the largest liberty consistent with security and safety. This quartette of youngsters Is distin guished by being the lirst of the leonine tribe to be born at the park. They will be named in due season, and will have a page devoted to their record in the Zoo Chronicles. Murine Band Concert.

A "Katre Klatsch" at the residence of Dr. and Mrs. Wm. Tindall, at California avenne nnd Columbia road, was largely attended and, greatly enjoyed. It was in the Interest ot hygienic diet and the Peo ple's Church. ' The menu, was wholly vegetarian, and the tables' as a- whole constituted an ex cellent health food exhibit. From 2 p. m. till night the house was filled with visitors coming nnd. going.. A stairway woundwltb golden rod and a gerijt mass ot geraniums and cosmos In the ball greeted the guests as the door opened.

It Is expected that a meeting of tbe exec utive relief committee; having In charge tho making of provision for the .poor of Washington during the whiter, will occur within a feWHlays. One of tho committee said last night that only for the absence of Judge C. O. Cole, who is clialrman of the committee, that body-would have been called together this weik. Tho newspapers of late are filled with accounts of the mobilization -of the grand army ot tramps and their inevitable trend to the larger cities. The experience of, the last winter shows that these chevaliers count largely on the benefactions of tho people ot this city. " How to discriminate between the abso lutely needy, the, deserving' poor, 'and the wniHlering tribes who. come here, to ,take advantage of the people's generosity, is one ot Uie problems to be-met. Last season the conditions otall classes of the very poor nvere so bad that the door of charity was flung wide open, and (luring the extremely bad weather all the visiting tramps were fed pt tlie.Boup.kltcheiu. 1 was u case where it would have been un charitable to discriminate in charity. 3 P As a consequence there were many plans suggested tomeetlheemergency which may be expected to riseevcrjrwlnter.

It arrived at its conclusions by ascertain ing thp'number of men 'out of employment, and also tho number of women who were dependent upon a very scant livelihood. The, .people subscribed very liberally, knowing the extent of the prospective suf fering. The executive relief committee re duced its work to a good system, and the 'canvassing' cnmiiiittee established head quarters at the rooms of the Board of Trade, as chairman of which Mr. JohnB. Wight did agreatpub!icservice - At .the close ot the season the Commis sioners took n deti -interest in -the subject.

At this meeting there was a discussion of the well known Indianapolis plan, the chief feature ot which was the rurnishing of work for tbe needy and the support of the beneficiaries until they could reimburse, the association in part for the money expended. , COLLECTED FQR.CIIA.RlT.r. A great many of the charitable associa tion1! orthe city receive a share f the public moneys collected for charity, sev eral large amounts having' rWli' (tins dis posed of last year. It Is not known. whether the permanent relief contemplated by the special committee will affect this custom pr not. The"report of this committee will be of great Interest to the. moncy.-giving public, a great many of whom are In lavorof some other plan than that which has been in vogue here for years. The Arsociated Charities is an organi zation wbose w-ork is perennial. It also received a share, of the funds, which it distributed at it's, .various exchanges in different jiarts or the city, and relieved hundreds or cases which were not reported to the police. The Central Union Mission also did a very large share or the Independent work last winter and received certain sums from -the general fund.. The sums con tributed In clothing and money vary from year to year from $20,000 to $30,000, in which respect Washington gives in proportion to Its population an amount which is raid to be greater than that of any other city.
