Andrews placed the heads of the reptiles In his mouth, furnishing a sensation to the patrons of the ex hibition. As he picked up the Gila monster, which had seemed sluggish all day, the reptile suddenly turned and clamped Us Jaws upon Andrews' fin ger. Andrews pulled tho lizard from his ringer, stripping off the flesh as he did so. Coleman, owner of the show, is said to have tried to keep Andrews down in the pit with the rattlesnakes and other reptiles in spite of his serious wound.

The poisoned man was taken to the receiving hospital, where his finger was silt open and as much of the poison as possible taken out.

B URN IN T OULON H ARBOR Torpedoes Explode on the School Ship Algeciras Hundreds Get Away in Boats Under Good Discipline Nearby Warships Towed to Places of Safety After Naval Victims Are Hauled Out of the Water By Associated Press. TOULON, France, Nov. 25.— The torpedo school ship Algeciras, sta tioned In this harbor, was totally de stroyed by fire at a late hour this evening. There were 500 men on board when the fire broke out, but it Is believed thnt most of them were saved. The Algeciras was a ship of the line and for a number of years she had been doing duty as a harbor vessel and employed an a torpedo training ship. She was of 6047 tons displace ment and was built in 1855. The burning of the school ship cre ated the greatest alarm throughout the city. News of the fire was first con veyed at about 11 o'clock by the fir- Ing of a cannon in the harbor. The people hurriedly left the cafes and theaters and rushed to the docks, whence they could see the Algeciras a mass of flames in the harbor. The burning vessel stood out brilliantly in the encircling: darkness and the glare of the flames lit up the other shipping and the coast and wharves. Anxiety Over Men There was terrible anxiety concern ing the fate of the 500 men on board until the authorities announced that everybody had been taken off in boats and saved, with the exception of three. Those men did not answer the roll call and It Is presumed they were burned to death. The entire garrison here was called out to render assistance and the crews of the warships of this division hur riedly launched their boats to go to the rescue of their comrades who were on board the Algectras for purposes oT instruction. Tup boats and fire boats, as well an several steamers lying in port, slipped their anchors and like wise went out to help. As soon as the men had been taken oft the flaming vessel the efforts of the authorities were directed to safeguard ing the other ships anchored in the vicinity of the Algeciras, including the new battleship Patrle and the tor pedo gunboat La Hire. These two warships were towed to places of safety. Abandon Ship The authorities came rapidly to the conclusion that the Algeciras was doomed and she was left to burn her \self out. The discipline maintained on board the Algeciras was excellent. A ma jority of the men were cool and col lected. The small boats of the Algeciras were launched, filled with men and rowed away while those who could not leave In this manner awaited the arrival of their rescuers. A few of the men, however, were forced by the flames to jump overboard and swim away. Six torpedoes on board the school ship exploded while the men were leaving the vessel. There was much fear during the height of the fire that a torpedo maga zine on shore would be ignited, but this was prevented by deluging the magazine with heavy streams of water from powerful flre boats. It is not known whether the fire originated from an explosion of pow der or broke out among the stores on board. Smoldering All Day It is thought that the flre which broke out tonight had been smoldering all day long in the vessel's bunkers. This would account for the sudden breaking out of the flames at practically the same time on different parts of the ship. There is soms uncertainty as to whether the three missing men were really burned or not. It Is reported that they were last seen standing on the deck and when ordered to jump Into the water replied they could not swim. POSSE AND DOG TRAIL YOUNG SLAYER By A ■.« ip la ted Press.

As the train passed through Glasgow, at which point it doeß not stop, the man was seen at work by the station agent, who wired the chief dispatcher of the fact. Armstrong, the next station east of Glasgow, was notified and officers were at the station there to meet the train when It pulled' in.

NEW YORK, Nov. 25.— 1t was stat ed tonight at the manager's office of the Metropolitan opera house that En rico Caruso's voice, which was affect ed, has improved to such an extent that the tenor would positively appear Wednesday evening, unless an unfor seen illness appears. Caruso himself, It was said, was disposed to fill his en gagement and was unaware of any reason why he should not. Caruso is billed to sing "Rudolfo" in "La Boheme" to Mme. Sembrich's "Miml." Since Caruso's conviction for annoy ing" women In Central park there have been persistent rumors that he would not appear in public at present. It had also been said that Adreas Dippel, another tenor, had been rehearsing "Rudolfo" in anticipation of being as signed., to take Caruso's part. These reports, as well as others to the effect that the management feared an un friendly demonstration against Caruso should he appear that might seriously mar the performance, have been re peatedly denied by Director Conried. It was admitted, however, that the singer's voice had suffered severely during his experience in court and that this affection, unless corrected, might interfere with the program planned. Tonight's assurance that Caruso was quite himself again, seemed to dispose of this contingency. It was given out at the opera house that only the usual police arrangements would be made for Wednesday evening, as nothing un pleasant was expected to occur, Caruso's appeal will be presented in the court of general sessions tomor row, and his counsel expect that it will be entertained within a day or two.
