Baron toin of 1'opiielsdorf, near Bonn,
Ocrinnny, is tin amateur animal tamer
ami lias for his amusement a small me
nagerie in a park adjylnlng the uld sum
mer rt-idenee of the Cologne electoral
princes in I'opiiel-durf. Anions otlicr
wild Insists lie owns five African lions,
from 2 to ii years old. They were raised
with hyenas with whom, they live on
f good terniB, though occasionally one of
tho big cats knocks a hyena down and
, scratches its face ju-t to show who is boss
of the cage.
Having taught these animals all that lie
could, says the Xew York Press, the baron
decided to introduce a novelty into the
performances which lie is in the habit of
giving before an admiring circle of friends.
An old white stork named Fritz has lived
for years on the highest tower of Poppies
dorf castle aud, as he was reared in tho
baron's poultry yard, never has indulged
in the migratory habits of his kind.
Fritz, who is four feet tall and lias a
bill more than seven inclie-long, was kept
in the big training cage alone for a, week
to accustom him to it. On the tenth day
of his imprisonment the lion cage was
rolled up to the cage.
I Fritz viewed the lions with healthy cu-
, riosity, but without tho lea-t alarm. Zam-
i pa, a 2-year-old lion, was the lirst to be
dtiven into tho cage with tho bird. He
looked at Frit for a r-econd or two and
then tried to crawl back to his family,
tail first; but, linding the means of egress
locked, he raised himself to his full height
i and uttered a defiant mar.
' At this the stork's neck feathers bri-tled. j
I He lifted his hi!! in protest, "cl.ippering"
as only a stork can. j
The r-trango noie upset Zampa's self
confidence. He stood still and droptieil his !
tail sadly. Hut the blood of ids fathers
roe in him again, and, whipping his
flanks with his tall, he cautiously ad
vanced on the enemy, cowering occasion
ally, as if preparing to spring.
The stork viewedthc-c warlike prepara
tions with iticrea-ing anger, and his bill
worked like caianets. Standing ' a
second on his strong middle toes, he raised
his wings and aimed as if about to hit tho
lion in the eye.
The lion hesitated again and iva lost.
The stork Hew at him.and bored his sharp
beak into his adversary's nose, whielt be
gan to bleed. A the bird stcpied back to
prepare for another onslaught Zarnpa
turned swiftly mid, 'forgetting in his be
wilderment from which fid.: he had en
tered, jumped to the other side of tho cage
and cowered there.
Fritz had no taste" for punning his van- '
qtti-hed foe. Leaving tho rear part of the

of tho. total area. Within this spaco he
1 1 strutted, a conquering hero.
' Zampa's brother, 3 years old, then was
sent into the cage, Ho showed in turn as-
tonisluncnt, a disposition for flight and
hil" "w defiance. T
Tho stork, on his
part, tried to. keep out of a light as long
a he could, dually turning his back upon
hi- foe.
The lion couldn't let that opportunity
pass without trying to profit by, it" He
was about to .-pring upon the stork when

fast as the others had done.
On the next il.iy tho two biggest lions
were sent into the stork's cage again.
Fritz awaited them with his back against
the wall, and each had to retire, bearing
tho mark of his bill ou his countenance.

Tiicre was trouble on Miller k Lux's
lituch tha other day, says Die San Kran
cisco fall
Henry "Miller, "the boss," had taken it
into his Iuvi.il lo relieve a Coyote trap, and
he found otit sonu'thin lie didn't particu
larly want to know. The coyote had liccn
catujht ill this trap the niht Iiefore, but
for some rca-on noliody had killed it.
Then the old man -saw it. Ho hadn't
bounty off scalps), so he laid this one out
with profe.s.lonal pride,
When the beast was taken from the
trap, Mr. Miller turned it over, and at
once began to (.wear. ,
"Who in thunder did that" ho hhotit-
ed. "Who has been clapping my bnuul
on coyotes?'"
The lioy.s slowly enme forward and,
i with innocent and surprised countenances.
. looked at the coyote. There in bis letters
-Was Miller & Lux's bntnd, the 1111, indi-
i eating plainly that the ljea-t was theproj)-
erry of the millionaire cattle men and
claiming tiie full protection of the brand -
, in? law. Xoliody in theorowdof vaiiueros
, could, or rather would, explain the brand
on the coyote. At least that's what they
r told Miller. The branding on the coyote
had been done for many month?, so there
j was no way of locating wliere it had been
' dune. It might hare been n hundred miies
' ick ay.
"Miit have been some of them Portu
l gneic you hired ln-t summer what done
it,'" said Charley, the oldest cowboy oh
I the ranch.
i "Portuguese bo Mowed"!" retorted Mil
! ler. "It was some of you fellers. Those
' Portuguese ain't got sense enough
for nothing like that. I'll find out any
how. Saddle up theie quick and come
' along."
Then began a chase over the much for
a sight of u coyote.
'Here, you. I'achugo, la-so that fel
low!"' -homed Miller as soon a- one of the
-quick footed coyote- came in -ight.
Old I'acliiigo i- one of the bc-t hands
with the lariat in the whole ?an Joaquin
i alley, but iiu had to make several
'throws'' lx-fore lie got his game. First
the rope fell short, then it went ahead,
then it fell in tho right. jilacc, hut Mr.
Coyote jumped tlniitlgh hand went scam
pering gleefully uier the plains, being
careful to run close to as many prairie dog
holer, as he could. At la-t old Pachugo
was succe ful, and the coyote was pulled
1 over on hi- back with a broken neck, the
lariat having landed in just the right spot.
Mr, Miller jumped off his liorso and
turned over the dead animal. Sure
'enough, there was the HH. And, worse
i-tiil, there iverw- the earmarks, Miller &
Lux' coyote Imyond a doubt.
"That w- do'ne by that Chinaman over
near Nevada," said old Pachugo. -1 can
tell, becau-e the coyote smells like rice."
A.- the Xevada end of the ranch was
over 100 miles away, Mr. Miller could not
make old Pachugo proie hi- i-tntement,
but he wa- by no mean- convinced, vk he ,
made the whole crowd put in the day on a ,
eoyoro hunt.
'I don't mind telling you." said Char
ley, ''it wa.- that nigger over on the west
side, and Jie done it foryoifr interest."
"My Interest? What do you mean?"
yelled Miller, beginning to get mad again.
"Well, you see," said Charley, 'there
ain't no bounty- on coyote scalps just now,
so there ain't no use in killing them.
Now, the nigger figgered that he'd, brand
all'the coyotes in the state, and then when
you get the bounty law of 2.."i0 a scalp re
enacted at the next legislature nobody
would have a right to kill tho varmints
except us. And you can just iiggcr on
how much money we'd have."
Then without a word Mr. Miller got un
his hor.se aud rodo off, his head buried in
tho deepest kind of thought. Tho last
words any of the cowboys heard him say
were, "Thirty coyotes killed furnothin."
Knough branded coyotes were found
during the day"s hunt to show tlmt if "tho

says: "For several years I have suf

my back and in my head, also rheu
matism and was extremely nervous.
I took several kinds of remedies
' that were recommended to cure my
troubles, but they gave me no benefit,

Irish woman, made her appearance.
"Betty," said Miss IMrkridge, "be so

bewailed Uncle Black.
"Crackers, of course," said Joceliud.
'Anything is better than imperiling one's
digestion with such stuff as this. And,
Betty, if you send up any more fish in a

'But, my dear, I am rather fond of

Betty ictired with an ominous rustle of
her stiffly starched apron..
''My dear," said I'nclo Black apprehen
sively. "Betty is a very old servant, and"
' I don't care if she is the ago of Me-

be expected to put up with snch wretched
cooking as this."
"I really think she is not so bad if"
"Oil, pray don't apologize for her, Uncle
Black," said .loscelind. "They are all

Uncle Black began to look frightened.
; Ho had kept Betty, i-ylvia and old -John
for ten year Was it possible that he had.,
scolded at them for ten years only to have '
Jo-celind Darkridgo outscold him now? '
Undo Black ate the rest of his breakfast '
with but little appetite. Sylvia, the
housemaid, was finishing (lusting
his !
library when he entered it. . '
"Xot through yet!" growled Undo
Black, the fretwork of wrinkles oiico more
coming into his brow.
"Sylvia," said Miss Darkridge severely, '
'if tiiis happens, again I shall dlsjienso '
with your services. Look at that clock!
Is this the time of day to bo dawdling
about tho rooms with a broom aud dust

exorbitant wages to lie in bed until noon."
"My dear," said Undo Black, "Sylvia

"Dear uncle," interrupted .loscelind,
'pray permit me to bo the judge of these
matters. You have ruled your household
with a slack and indulgent hand alto
gether too long I shall now institute a

Old John, the gardener, was not exempt ,
from his share of the general turmoil, i
Miss Darkridge chanced to hear her undo
ruproaching the old man for some fancied '
' neglect in the liowcr beds, tho pride of
i his horticultural heart, and she promptly '
came to his aid. ,
"Gardening, fndeedl Do you call this'
gardening?" she said "Uncle Black, I'm '
astonished that you keop.siicli a man as '
that about the place!" j
And tho torrent of taunts and reproach-
es which she showered upon thn luckless '
head of poor old John was enough, as that J
individual observed, "to make ona's flesh I
creep." j
"My niece is a young lady of spirit and
energy, apologized Mr. IJIack when at

I elaro you're the nicest little wife in the
' world."
Hugh Matchley looked down with a sort
of fond, admiring tenderness at tho bright
eyed, damask cheeked little woman who
tvas industriously brushing his coat.
As she gave it n shake to complete the
process a letter fell from 0110 of the side
pockets a letter addressed to "H. Match
ley, Ksq.," inn dainty feminine handwrit
ing. "A letter from a lady!" sho cried out,
the merry sparkles of mischief coming
into hercyes. "Oh, Hugh, who is she?"
"That is my secret, Mrs. Matchley," ho
returned, with assumed dignity.
"Is it 011 business"
."Certainly it is oi( bu-iness," he an

Nannie Matchley had been a farmer's
daughter, and, although she had.livcd In
the city since her marriage with the thriv
ing young lawyer, her heart still longed
for tho scent of apple blossoms and new
mown hay with an indescribable yearning.
As ehe glided around the room, intent
on her various household duties, a knock
sounded at the door.
"It's that tedious, .gossiping old Mrs.
Bonncau," said Nannie to hsrself. "Now
I am in for an hour of neighborhood news.
Good morning, Mrs. Bonneau. Are you
well today!"
"I am tolerably well," she answered
gloomily "as well as one can bo in this
vale of tears."
"Why, -what's the matter now?" Nannie
asked, repressing a smile.
"Do you mean, Mrs. Matehley, that
you have never suspected the presence of
tho canker worm that is gnawing at tho
bud of your domestic happiness?" asked
tho old dame.
"What In the name of common sense do
you mean?"
"Ah, these wives these innocent, de
luded, unsuspecting wives!" she groaned.
"If you had disguised yourself this morn
ing, Nannie, and followed your' wretched
husband to what he called business"
"Well?" gasped Nannie.
"You would have seen sights that would
have curdled the very blood In your veins."
"AVhat sights?" gasped poor Nannie, in
voluntarily remembering the mysterious
letter and feeling herself grow red and
palo under tho unswerving goggles of her
"Well, if you really Insist," said Mrs.
Bonneau, evidently enjoying the moment,
"I must tell you. I was at the Andes ho
tel not 15 minutes since dearl dear! to
think that I should have to tell the tale
and he came there, all smiles and sweet
looks, to see the bold faced widow not
dressed in decent mourning," with a
downward glance at her own funeral ha
biliments, "but all streamers and jet clasps
and necklaces. I sat in the corner with
my veil down, so that he could not recog
nize me.
" 'The carriage is ready, Mrs. Arnott,'
said he. 'Pray let us lose no time my
wife suspects nothing as yet.' And if
you'll believe me, away they went in n
"I do not believe it," broke from Mrs
Matehley's lips.
"But I asked the waiter afterward.
'Lor', ma'am,' says he, 'that's the gent as
has been coming to see Mrs. Arnott every
day for a week.'
"I don't wish to alarm you, my dear,
but if they have eloped you won't have the
least difficulty in obtaining a divorce.
Goodby, my dear. I'd stay longer, only-1
have anapjioIntmentwith the dressmaker
at 11."
And away rustled Mrs. Bonneau,. leav
ing a musty smell of crape and dye behind
her, while Nannie stood looking blankly
out of tlm window as if the sunny sky of
her young life were turned to leaden dark
ness already.
"He will come back to mo if he cares ior
. me," she kept repeating to herself. "He
i said he would be here at 4, and it he comes
not I shall know that he has ceased to
! love me."
How slowly tho hours dragged along!
How spiritless it all seemed to poor Nan
nie! And when the hour of 4 drew near
an awful dread came upon her lest she had
, looked her last upon Hugh's face.
But punctually as the clock struck 4 her '
uusiMiiiu tipinaii'M iu ii iinmi;i'.
, "Oh, Hugh, Hugh, I am so glad !" she
cried incoherently as the open barouche
drove up to the door and she saw Hugh's
dark eyes shining cheerily from beneath
the shadow of his broad brimmed Panama
"Nannie, what nils you?" asked Hugh
as he alighted and handed his wife into
j the carriage and little Allic elimbed up on
tho seat to look into hor mothers heavy
, eyes and cried:
"Mamma sick? Mamma feel bod?
, Allioso sorry."
At that moment the carriage stopped in
front of n pretty little eottago literally
' veiled in crimson roses and spice scented
! honeysuckles
"Oh, what a lovely place!" cried Nan -
j nit?,. roused for an instant from hermelan-
1 choly torpor.
I "Would you liko it for a home. Nan-I
nie?" asked her husband.
j you know we. can't afford such a place."
j "Can't wj;, though," said he, his whole
1 face radiant with happiness and triumph.
I '"But wo can. It is yours, Nannie-"
' "Mine?"
"I bought it this morning, and here
conies the lady who owned it. Mrs. Ar
1 nott," as an elderly person in black and a
I widow's cap came out, "this is my wife."
' "Hugh, oh, Hugh, this .was Mrs. Bon-
neau's widow, then?"
"Mrs Bonneau's widow? My dear,
what do you mean?"
And with scarlet blushes of shame Nan
nie told tho story of Sirs. Bonneau's gos
sip and her own foolish jealousy.
! "While all the tlmcyou were planning
to give mo pleasure," she sobbed. "Dear
f Hugh, will you forgivo me?"
! " And Hugh forgave her.
