ODO of tho most remarkable men in
public life at this time is Hon.* H. W.
Thompson, of Indiana, ex-Secretary of
the Navy. Mr. Thompson is now in
his eighty-seventh year, and has been
in public lifo over since 1836. This
year, he presided over the Indiana
State Cor.ver.tion, and then visited St.
Louis as a delegate to the National Re
publican Convention. In spite of his
advanced years, his mind is still vig
orous and unimpaired, while hi3 body
retains much of its former elasticity.
He is to-day much stronger than hun
' drods ol men who are twenty and
thirty years his junior and is capable
of doing more hard work. As far back
as 1840, when William Henry Har
rison was a candidate lor President of
the United States, Mr. Thompson was
ohosen as one of the electors from In
diana on the Whig ticket. Ever since
that time ?ge has been a faotor in
American politics, and has participat
ed in every political campaign. Mr.
Thosepson is six months older than
Gladstone and six years older than
bismarck, but while these veterans
have laid ande the cares of office Mr.
Thompson is still actively engaged in
public affairs. On being asked the
secret of his vigorous health at such a
patriarchal age, he replied that he had
never indulged in vicious habits or al
lowed himself to acquire a taste for in
toxicating drinks. If a man possesses
a good constitution at the beginning
of life and docs nothing to impair or
diminish his physical birthright, in

Amusing and Marvelous Feats That
Are Taught to deter Canines
. -The Kind of Dog Slakes
EW of tho thousands of people
?who w ildly applaud tho amus
ing, and at times almost mar
veiou?, feats executed by per
forming dogs hove any idea of the
time and patience required to teach
the animals. A reporter for the New
York Times was so fortunate as to run
?.cross a veteran dog trainer who had
just finished a successful European
season. A few qncstions brought out
rome most interesting facts relative
to educated c'iogs and dog educators,
"It is a greit mistake to suppose,"
said this famous dog trainer, "that all
dogs can be made 1 to .perform any
trick, however simple, successfully.
It is equally true-und too much em
phasis cannot be put on the fact-that
perhaps not one man in every five
thousand is fb to educate a dog. You
may laugh at this assertion, bat it is
painfully true, nevertheless. First of
all, a man who intends to be success
ful with dogs must really love the ani
mals. Dogs, far more than any dumb
brutes, arc'most susceptible to im
pressions aud kind treatment. Let a
dog once and for all understand that
you do not wish to burt or harm him
and he will amply repay you for vour
labor. I would under no conditions
have a dog bandied by a man who did
havo thc kindest of dispositions as well
as an almost inexhaustible amount of

patience. This given, let the work
"Another illusion, tbai the public
fondly clings, to is that certain breeds
of dogs are more tractable and easier
taught than others. This-is nonsense.
Barring, perhaps, tho poodle, which
breed has been used for eirena pur
poses longer than any other, almost
any other dog will do. When yon
^choose a dog you must beforehand
BALANCING ON A B0TTIJ?.
have made up your mind to what par
ticular trick or tricks you intend to
train him. A man in this business
must be thoroughly posted on the
peculiarities of each breed. It is bet
ter to take a very young dog, say a
puppy about six months old, for a
pupil. After euch a puppy has over
come its at first very natural timidity
jt develops an eager desire for romp
ing and playfulness. Here is the op
portunity of the dog trainer. Ho now
begins a sort of dog kindergarten,
utilizing tho animal's disposition to
play as the vehiole of instruction.
"Suppose, for instance, that you
want the puppy to leap through a
number of hoops. He is" first taught
to ron after a ball rolled along the
floor ; this any dog will do spontan
eously, and cannot exactly be called
teaching. "When the dog hes brought
the ball back a number of times, and
gets thoroughly interested in the play,'
the first active step to make him leap
is prepared. The ball is rolled a few
feet from the wall, alongsido of which
is a low, movable partition. Tho dog
runs in the 6pace between, and, of
course, must return tho same way he
oamo. As soon as he reaches the lower
end, one or two hoops or low hurdles
aro placed in his way. In his friski
ness the puppy rarely stops for such
apparent trifles, but, all eagerness to
got at the ball, gayly skips over or
through these obstructions. In this
way he is encouraged and taught to
take leaps, higher and higher, through
any quantity of hoop?, teing rowarded
with a bit of cheese or lump of sugar
after any particularly successful per
formance. This thing has to be re
peated almost.innumerable times, till
the dog, at a certain word or motion,
executes h s task without tho slightest
hes" ation or error.
"Now, such a thing as thin is pimply
the ABC of dog education. It is a
totally different matter to nake,a dog
perform the most intricate trioks. The
raturai position of the animal is rest
ing on its four feet; any tricK in
which he is permitted to retain this
positioQ is comparatively easy to mnke
him do. I have a fox terrier which I
have taught to roll a ball or a small
cylinder in any direction-sidewise,
ROLLING inE GLOBE.
back ward or forward. Now, tho strang
est part of this trick-that that which
appears the very hardest is for the
nog evidently the easiest. He will get
up with his fonr feet on a ball not
much bigger than an ordinary toy
balloon and roll ib everywhere, in
whatever direction you wish, with evi
dent pleasnre and ease. But when ht
has to put two paws, whether front or
hind, on tho ball, nnd the other two
on the floor, he dojs not do it nearly
so well nor with any pleasure. This
is because the nui rial does not feel so
sure as when he 6<ands with his four
feet pretty close together. This ter
rier will roll a bull up or down a steep
iacline, while standing on it, with
relish, but put his ears back and look
frightened, to death if he is told to
only uso his forepaws in rolling it on
the level floor.
"While it is time that almost any
trick can bo t?ngbt by persuasion, still
it is often necessary to use forco.
Wien a dog feels or instinctively
knows that wlm^bo-is-bciag-iausrht ia.
in no wise dangerous, he is very tract
able,' and in most - cases accomplishes
what his master wishes him to do.
When, on tho other hand, yon want
him to learn a brick that really in
volves danger, his dog reason, fully
equal to that of many of the haman
race, quickly and firmly rebels. It is
really pathetic to see a dog almost ask
you not to let bira try such dangerous
experiments. If you persist, then
there is war. Here is whero the dog
educator must Iring his genius in
play. It is absolutely impossible to
make a frightened dog listen to rea-*
son. You must first get him over
his fright and next his sulkiness.
To teach a dog to do tho back somer
sault while st au i. i n a; on tho floor is
bard enough, but to tca.'b, him to do
the sams trick from a table or from
one chair to another is still harder.
Force has to be used, and a smart cut
of the whip at tho critical moment will
do wonders. But it will take a very
loDg time indeed to make a clog per
form any trick that involves danger,
and when ho does do it to perfection
any amount of credit is dno to his
master. A curious circumstance in
this connection is that once an animal
has been taught fearlessly to perform
a dangerous trick ho will seemingly
forget most if net all his easier ones.
Thus, I han a little dog which I finally
succeeded in teaching to do the back
somersault in tho most approved
fashion. Ho would jnst as lief do
twenty as one, and did his trick with
a precision that was marvelous. To
my surprise, he was unable to do his
former simpler ones, such as leap
through a hoop covered with tissue
paper, and other easy tricks.
"It is not necessary and really does
not pay to teach dogs any tricks that
require force. liy persuasion you may
gee a multitude of various ones that
to the publio aro equally interesting.
Teaching a dog to walk on his hind
legs is comparatively simple, and
THE CANINE SANDOW.
amply repays tho trouble. As soon as
this is accomplished the combinations
to which this trick may bo turned arc
too many to be enumerated. Among
the most noted performing dogs in the
world may bo mentioned a smull poodle
which is a perfect marvel in his woy.
He will walk up a staircase with eleven
steps, carrying a bnrning lamp on a
tray placed on his ontstrctche:! front
paws. This is wonderful enough, but
After he reaches the little platform his.
master recieves the limp and thon
after effectionatoly patting this almost
haman dog, he sends him down again.
The poodle then stands on his front
paws with his hind legs way up in tho
air, tho burning lamp is placed on his
head, and the dog walks down ten steps
without permitting the lamp to fall.
Another dog of the same breed' is
culled tho canino Sandow; he lifts
weights, uses dumbbells, . and finally
lifts a large cannon, which is dis
charged while ho holde it hanging in a
strap from his month.
.'Another rtar in the canine world
is a dog belonging to Mme. Doro.
This animal, whose name is Dick, has
set Paris wild with his clever perform
ances. His mistress has taught him
to do the skirt and tbe terpentine
dance, and he rivals Loie Fuller in
popularity. This dog was. sufficient
to pack Theatre des Nouveaut?s with
his wonderful tricks. His1 mistress
arrays him in a magnificent robe or
gown of fliray tulle, which is cut in
the latest fashion. By cleverly ar
ranging the dress around the front
paws of the dog and fastening very
light wires behind, tho skirt is held in
position. The orchestra strikes up

the Loio Fuller waltz, and Dick'grace
fully bounds upon the stage, always
standing on his hind legs ; after his
most graceful bow to tho spectators
he begins to dance, and his gyrations
aro a little short of the wonderful.
The electric lights aro turned on, giv
ing the color effects the samo as in
Salome, and Dick waves his paws and
swings m's skirts in the mosb bewitch
ing fashion possible. Dogs as a rule
detest to he dressed up, but when they
have overcome this aversion they may
bo induced to represent anybody their
owner wishes to caricature.
"The chief things to remember
when training dogs, or any other ani
mal for that matter, is that gentleness
and kind treatment will always bear
the best results. Always select a
healthy, handsome puppy, and start
right in teaching some trick.. This
must bo kept up till the animal really
performs his duty automatically, and
only constant practice will make this
Fiercer Thun Lions or Leopards?
It always appeared to tho -writer
that Sutton, tho head keeper of .the
'ions and some male
tigers as _
the lionesses, the leopards, pumas and
most tigers were treated as cats.
Lionesses he never toucned with his
hand, and leopards, except tbe snow
leopards, very seldom ; but eomo of
the tigers and tba male lions behaved
in their dealings with him exactly as
if they were domesticated animals.
Bears, he maintained, always became
unsafe to handle after they were full
grown, though often tamo and friend
ly when cubs. Polar bears, on tho
other hand, he looked upon as always
dangerous and quito untamablo, hav
ing a kind of incurable levity which
makes them absolutely without re

nro kept in captivity. In the case of
the larger cats, age and ill temper do

In all tbe years spent in the care of

by the bears or lions, he was nearly
killed by a zebra. The correct faots
of this curious inoidentare as follows:
The zebra, wbich was known to bo
very savage, was turned out into the
yard, the sliding door between the
yard and its stall being pushed to, but
not fastened by the man whose duty
it was to do so. Sutton was in the in
ner stall, putting in fresh bay, when
the zebra heard him. He also heard
it trot up to th? door, and tho next
moment he saw its muzzle pushed
against the crack which had been left
between the edge ot the door and the
post. It slid the door back in a mo
ment, ran in, and, stooping its head,
seized him below the kneo und threw
him violently on his back. It held on
to his leg, biting so severely that it
cracked his shin bone, though Sut
ton, who was lying on his back kicked
hard with the other foot. Tho other
men drove it off with stable forks, but
tho keeper was laid up for thirteen
weeks from the effects of tho bite.

his collar and is called tho frilled
lizard. He's not a bit pretty and he
has a way of jumping around that
gives one a peculiar, fright if ono hap
pens upon him suddenly. Although
this frilled chap has four legs, he
seems to like walking and dancing on
his hind legs better than traveling on
all fours. He's as quick as lightning
in his movements, and lives on the
insects that inhabit the trees of the
thick woods. Ho could become a
dancing master if he was bigger and
would conduct himself with great?
ease. We can forgive the frilled lizard
almost any of his pranks, but we can'l
forgive him his long name, which ii
