PRESERVING A SKIN.
IT WAS STILL ON THE TIGER, AND THE TIGER WASN'T DEAD. A Sportsman's Mistake Nearly Resulted lu the Lose of Human Life—After This an Extra Hole In the Hide Will Not Be » Sucli an Important Conslderatimi. Arriving at the village of Deypoora, Ihree miles from Ruttenghur fort, we were here told of a tiger that had lately, killed very many bullocks, so wo started with sev eral men to look liim'up. We were taken to a ravjme ip the plains named Iloonce ’ and had taken up our position on a rooky ledge when we; were-recalled ;l>y a nmn who lia4 s^pn tho tiger. He directing Us to the *l«)t, Wo camfi^vly odvauood. And lookinggner tho steepf-t^k uT'lhb' Irtvine saw thoitigor stretched Tit at full length just tiMee yards or loss below u». Ho lookod up and grluuod liorrlbly. Wo in stantly gave him a bullet each, whereupon ho sprang Into tho cover below and was out of sight even before wo could get a second shot. On going down tlmdjtmk wo soon found drops of blood and easily car ried these on for some distance down tho ravine, when all at onco they qiitircly, ceased. The ground Was bare shoot rock, or largo slabs of flat' stones; so no-foot prints oould bo discovered. After going on somo little dislAnco wo met a man tending a herd of goats who denied hav ing seen the tiger pass, and indued it was hut too evident from tho unconcornod manner in whlch'tho goats browsed and cropped the bushes around that they had seen no such formidable animal lately. So wo retraced out steps to again search for ■ tho blood, when suddenly a man by signs pointed to a ouvo formed by a large ledgo of rock that had fallen from above. Wo knew liia meaning, though it much sur prised us, for wo hid only juBt passed close by this veryvplice, looking for the tiger’s prints. All the men, as usual, were at once or dered to a safe distance in tho rear, while, placing our spare guns botore us, we knelt down to polish off this tiger at an unpleas antly close distance, for wo were prevented by a steep bank behind us from going farther back, and a viow could not bo ob tained from any other point. As it was, nil wo could make out wore the tiger’s eyes shining very clearly In the dark oavo with an indistinct outlino of his faro. Wo eiloutly agreed to tiro togothor on the word, “One, two, three,” being given by one of us. On tho smoko clearing away, wo woro delighted to sco our foo stretched out still on his book, tho white of his holly tiring uppermost, and very vlsiblo. On go ing nearor, two small holes, one over each eyebrow, from which streams of blood flowed, oaused us to congratulate each other on our good aim. Wo now walked close up and saw that the oavo in which this tiger had tried to hide himself, al though it liad but a small entrance, vras large enough inside. While talking over our luoky shots wo observed one of the tiger's arms slowly move, but as if from more muscular ac tion, oaused by Its woight and the posi tion tho beast was lying in. On noticing tills I suggested that another shot should be given to make sure, hut Little slightly objocted, on tho ground tliut it was only uselessly making holes and so spoiling tho skin. On this I agreed to fire whore our knlvos would first bo used in taking oft the victim’s jacket, so at onoo, while we woro looking into tho cave, without put ting my gun to iny shoulder, I placed its muz7,Je opposite tho tiger’s chest and fired tho remaining loaded burred. All this time the men, who from a distance had seen us so near the tiger’s don, come running up toward us In a great state of delight ut their enemy being killed, for so they and we both thought was Indeed tho case. In stead of which, no sooner had 1 fired than, with a frightfnl roar, up jumped the tiger, as lively as ever. With ono bound Little, who Is remarkably strong and active, gained the top of tho high lodge of rock that formed tho tiger's cave. Here he kept guard with his spate loaded barrel pointed over tho mouth of tho don; our other guns wo had left on tho ground on walking up to first look at the tiger. For my part, in the most dreadful stale of alarm, I nt onoo rushed through tho men who had now come up and were crowding around us, upsetting tlireo or four and myself iu so doing. For tho moment there was a torrible pauio, and, tho ground boiug very upoven and stony, everybody seemed to fall ovor and trip up everybody else. Some climbed small trees like moukeys, while others in their fright ran clean out of sight without stopping to look bohind. All this time tho tigor was roaring awfully. I fully be hoved that he wus outside the cave, killing euch man as he caught him, instead of which, being much confused, ho luckily remained in tho dun, arouud aud around which he kept walking, seemingly with out being able to find Ills wuy out. At last, gaining my legs, I snatched up a gun aud climbed up a small thin tree Just In front of tho den. There wore two men al ready in this slight tree, so its brunches bent down unpleasantly close to the ground with our weight. From this point I fired 1 a* more shots, at only ns many yards’ distance, into this tigor before he was quiet. Only his fore arm and lower part of his holly could be hit every time he appoared at the mouth of tho cuvo. All new being still, we came down from our high posts and this time found the boast really dead, riddled with balls. The ap pearanoo of the ground -was very laugh able. Guns, drums, hows, spoors, shoos, turbans, were scattered all ovor tlio place. Some poor fellows were sadly bruised. It appeared that our shots hod merely for the time stunned this tiger, missing his brain, which lies In a long narrow cell directly between tho eves and on the extreme top of tho forehead. Tho shot In his chest most eneptually revived mm. This wasamostextraordinary and lucky escape for all of us, for, supposing him quite (lend, we should have begun to haul him out of the oovo and at once proceeded to skin him on the spot, during which operation the boaters usually all crowd around and discuss the brute's death and recall the losses ho has occasioned in his day. Taking off his skin would, no doubt, have revived the tiger, when the conse quences that might have ensued arc terri ble to conceive. Doubtless more than ono life would have been lost. This little ad venture served as a good caution to us sever to fear making holes in a beast’s jkin to fully ascertain whether he was dead or not. At this time wo were but young hands at tiger killing, but have since learned by experience many such valuable lessbns. This tiger was a very large old ono.—“Tiger Hunting I u India," Lieutenant Rice. The number of men and women in Franoe is more equal than in any other country, there being 1,007 women to 1,000 men.

By and by he finds out for himself that the same thing is true of a good many of the people.—New York Herald. ■■ - . ■ - - ■ -■ THINGS DRAMATIC. Birmingham theater-goers last night 'had the flrst opportunity of the season of enjoying a tragedy, and to show their appreciation of high class plays turned out in very good numbers to witness the production, f>£ ‘ “Othello” at O'Brien's opera house. by Louis James and his superb company of actors, of whom the following is the cast: Othello.Mr, Louis James Iago.f,..Guy Lindsley Cassio _J.William Harris The Duke.:.James Harrison Brabantine.Harry Langdon Gratiano.William Hunt Up(lrrTgji,.\uT.Thomas C. Co$k Montano .Wilsford North Lodovlco...TUehard Wafte Antonio..,, t.t..... ..I, ... .George Powell Messenger..,, .,,, ..Charles Penley Gt'Sdepiona , / .. . rMisfc Alfha' Kruger KtMlfi : Miss Ajihle Hendrlcjts Of magnificent physique and command ing apimaranoe Mr. James is just the Moorish general one would fancy from reading "Shakespeare’s ‘'Othello." There Is probably no actor at the present time who outranks Mr. James as an interpre ter of Shakespearian plays. In “Othello” he is given wide range to display his great versatility, which he does most cleverly. His leading lady, Miss Alma Kruger, a young woman of rare personal beauty, is a clever little actress, who pleased the audience as Desdemonla. Mr. Guy IJndsley, who appears in the role of Iago, the villain who feigns devo tion to Othello while plotting his ruin, is a southerner who has made for himself considerable reputation on the stage. He is an actor (if no mean ability, and as Iago gives able support to Mr. James. Cassio, Othello's lieutenant, who, ■ through the villainy and treachery of Iago, was condemned to death, but wlio Instead succeeded Othello as general, ■was well portrayed by William Harris. Tonight Mr. James and his company will appear at O’Brien's in “Vlrglnius.” “The Span of Life.” The play that conies to O'Brien's opera house Monday and Tuesday nights of next week is famous for its scene where three wiry athletes form a human bridge, over which the heroine safely passes. "The Arabs are upon us; we are lost!” (This from one side of the King chasm, through which leaps the seething torrent, and then) "No, no, not so,” (from the oth er)., a linking together df three human frames, logs in arms, arms in legs, a fall across the precipice, a Catch, a slight sway, and the heroine, child in arms, scrambles across the human bridge. And there you have the "Span of Life.” It is excellent scene, the novelty of which is above the ordinary drama. The act is over in a moment ana at course constitutes the climax to a stirring scene of escape. The scene just described is the most famous feature of the melodra ma that comes to O’Brien’s opera house next Monday and Tuesday nights. “The Span of Life" was produced orig inally in London and is named among the successful plays of recent date. To make the play the resources of the scenic art ist and stage carpenter have been taxed to their utmost. The result is that thrill ing situations follow each other In quick succession, and the Interest of the audi ence is kept at high tension in anticipa tion of what is coming next. The play is handsomely staged. "The Span of Life” scene is of course the crowning one, bttt excellent in its way is also the scene out side the lighthouse, where the hero, with one arm useless climbs the lighthouse to ring the fog hell just as a big steamer looms up through the mist, and a boat eomes with help from the shore to light the hitherto unllghted lamps. Every thing at last ends happily, for the hero escapes from the Arabs and returns to England to confound his enemy' and res cue his wife and child from further evil. A Good-Natured Imp. That imp of good natured, harmless deviltry, “Peck’s Bad Boy," will appear at O'Brien's on Wedneslay night next to gether with his pa. his ma, his chum, and last, but by no means least, his girl. Dur ing his stay here he will bother his pa, make love to his girl, get his chum into scrapes, make the policeman’s life a bur den to him and play tricks upon the Ger man groceryman until that gentleman bedtimes frantic. All lovers of fun should see him, and all people who have a fit of tha blues should see him,-too, for with his able assistants (hat boy can knock any blues higher than the figuration kite. The bad boy is under the charge of George W. Heath, this gentleman being his sole guardian, so appointed by the boy’s original boss. Mr. George W. Peck, governor of Wisconsin. If you want to have a good time go and see “Peck’s Bad Boy,” but If you like melodrama and po etic agony stay away, the boy won’t.suit yon at nil. He lives for laughing pur poses only, and he fills his sphere with unbounded success. A DAKOTA PRAIRIE IN JUNE. Tho Landscape Is Fairly Ablaev With Brilliant Floral Colors. In duo Uino wo woro driving over tho prairies, which are always mugnifloent, but wliicli on this day were lnuguiflcently beautiful, literally covered as they were with the prairie roses. Think o®t ! Acres upon acres thickly dotted with red, pink and white roses, end tho air laden with an aroma of the fresh blown blossoms. Other flowers of no mean appearance helped to make those wide prairies one vast flower garden. There were the spider wort of brightest blue, the waxy anemone of pur est wbito, the evening primrose, with its larger but less beautiful blossoms, and tho purplo wild pens or vetches, with un occa sional richly colorod yellow flowor whose botanical name I have forgotten. Nothing, however, could compare with tho roses in beauty or quantity. Some one lias said that the flowers out of reach of mnn are dedicated to God. No where In this wide world, if this ho true, can there bo such a supreme floral dedica tion as on these North Dakota prairies. They touch everybody's heart. Ou the train the conductor or the brakemau would jump off at each station ami in a moment gather a beautiful bouquet and bring it into tho car for tho women and children. I was on a traijj. a week or two before this trip, when suddenly the train stopped between stations. “What’s tho matter?” cried several voices. “Nothing," was the reply. “The boys want somo roses.” And whun a moment later the express messen ger, with whom I was acquainted, brought me u dainty bouquet of buds aud blossoms I suspoct there was in my prosy soul some tiling of the same sentiments to which Lucy Larcom, with her poetical nature, gave expression in the words: The world we live in wholly is redeemed, Not man alone, l at. all that man holds dear— Bis orchard and his maize, forgetmenot And heartsease in hi* garden and the wild Aerial blossoms of the untamed wood That make his savagery so homelike. All Hava felt Christ's sweet love watering their roots. Bis sacrifice has won both earth and heaven. Does familiarity with tiju Bowel's bring contempt? Little lvnif Strachan, 4 years old, cried when the wagon wheels crushed one. Mr. Carter quaintly Informed us that he was trying the cesthetlo on hla^igs this year.
