the secret op lion-taming.
gow the Difficult School is Conducted —An Expensive Matter. A reporter of the Pall Mall Gazette has interviewed M. Bide!, the French lion timer, with the following result. ■•How did you come to be a lion-tamer;'’ • I was bred to tho business. My father kept a show. I began to enter the cages wh-'n I was quite a child. I began with solves, hyenas and other small fry. At 15 I left my parents, and traveled about the country with other shows. In ISSO I „ at Bayonne with the Bauarbo lnenage ne A young royal Bengal tiger got 100-e. You cau imagine the state of t'ue inhabitants. I was sent for. I looked for the beast some time, anti found him at last in a blacksmith’s shoo. I w ent up to him. caught him by the throat with one hand, and with the other threw him on my shoulders and carried him ln.d; to his cage. ] carried him 500 yards. lly hack was con siderably ilamaged. I was 23 years old then, nod if "as from that moment I date uiv veritable career. I had faced danger, knew whut it was, and did not fear it. I immediately liogan to lionesses, tigers, polar bears, panthers, etc.” r You smoke, 1 see,” I said, as I lighted a cigarette from t lib one he held in his hand. "Tobacco does not unsteady your nerves?’, "Certainly not. It is true, Ido not smoke much. Twelve cigarettes at most a day. \ i No cognac, thank you. I have taken my little glass, and that is all the alcohol I shad touch till the same time tomorrow. Alcohol is the very worst thing a man in mv profession can make a bail use of. Tho beasts -com to know when a man has taken mo much. One would fancy they can dis criminate between real courage and that bravado which you call Dutch courage. All these accidents which you read about in the papers are caused by the drunkenness of lion-tamers, who bring their courage up to the sticking point by excessive drinking. I take no alcohol at all except what you just me take. If lam ever offered a drink I tike a glass of milk, beedfvery rarely. To master these brutes I have to begin by being completely master of myself.” THE SECRET OF LION TAMING. ‘ What means do you employ to tame vour animals?” • My complete self-confidence and my courage. I consider these the only means. Red hot irons, arms, loaded w hips are the implements of the charlatan or of the cow ard. I have never made use of anything more formidable than an ordinary riding whip. And, please observe, I only work with full-grown animals captured in a wild state, and not. like my confreres, with leasts born in the menagerie, and brought up by bitches or with a sucking-bottle. When tho Prince and Princess of Wales visited my establishment in 1878, at the time of the exhibition, I en tered the cage in their presence and in the presence of Oambetta. Emile de Girardin and others, and mastered six full grown African lions whom I had received that day and who were as ferocious as an} - 1 have ever had to do with. Sultan, too, the lion whose portrait you see over the fireplace, and who nearly killed me a year ago, was six years old—that Is. in his prime—when I enterai his cage for the first time. That w;is down at Lyon*, in September. 187(5. The previous >lay he had killed a man called Vicard, and my performance was given in favor of Vicard's widow and orphan. Vi card was a railway porter, and had been foolish enough to put his hand into the lion's traveling box at the station—Sultan had just arrived from Africa that morning. Sultan seized his arm and tore it off bodily. The man died the same night. Before twen ty-four hours had elapsed I had entirely subjugated this man-killer. I worked regu larly with him twice a day for ten years. It was just a vear ago that he attacked me, and nearly killed me. I was suffering from rheumatic pains that day and happened to slip. A iion tamer must never fall. Lions have not vour English notions about re specting a fallen foe. The brute was on me like a shot, and got me by the neck. I caught him by the throat and shouted •Sul tan? Sultan’ what are you doingMy voice frightened him, doubtless, for he opened his jaws anil loosened his hold with out tearing out the flesh. If he had done that I should inevitably have been killed. He then seize* i me by the arm, and afterwards by the thigh, wounding me besides with Lis claws in three other places. I managed, however, in spite of my terrible wounds, to struggle to ray feet, and once on my feet was master of him. Since then, however, I have not en tered the cages. I liave been terribly shakeu and reduced in strength. It will lie some time before I shall have sufficient nerve to approach Sultan once more. No, I do not lelieve in that nonsense that is talked about it being impossible to do any thing with animals who have tasted human blood, or have seen it. If I did, I should have retired from business long ago. 1 have been bitten and torn over and over again, and have often continued my performance with my blood streaming all over me. Tho l ites appreciate my courage and are afraid of me, because they see that I am not afraid of them. This is the whole secret of lion taming. “THE EYE IS HUMBUG."’ “Do you believe in the power of the eye? There is a man at the Folies-Bergeres who professes to taine lions bv the power of fas •uiafion—mesmerism. What is your opin ion of this profession f’ "I consider it charlatanism of the purest water. The animals are doubtless tame brutes, lorn in the cage. I do not believe in the power of the eye. .V blind man could lie as good a lion-tamer, if hu had the requisite pluck, as any other man. I my self am shortsighted, and. as you will see. possess no very quelling eyes.” Very handsome ones, though, all the same, I thought, as I glanced at M. Bidel and admired hie tine dark eyes, somuolent -1*" king, though, and half close 1. Such eyes had surely quelled Mrs. Bumble where Bumble failed. "You are looking for the traces of my eoml*t with Sultan,” said Mr. Bidel, turn ing his he.ui round and disclosing beneath the hair on his ne k a most formidable cica trice half a foot long if an inch, as cruel a wound as any I have ever seen. “That is one. I have ten other such cn my body. "No,” he continued, “I do uot believe in fascination. The voice, tho tone of com siand, is a great—the principal—instrument in lion taming. Articulate sounds seem to amaze them. "That is so,” put in Mr. Aiexiano. “the T°i'ce. ; ;t tout. The eye is humbug. Why I very often turn my back on one or other of the brute* in the cage. Command them, t>Umt up to them, show them you are not afraid and they will buckle under." i I ‘ ; WOMEN' IN THE LIONS’ DEN. “You are immensely strong, M. Bidelf "I used to be,” he replied, modestly. “I have told you what I did at Bayonne when a lad. At Madrid once I pursued a lion that had got loose for thirty minutes, caught him single-handed, mid held him till my men brought up his cage. Into which I threw him. Well, yes; I was slightly damaged. At one time one of the great hits of my per formanre was to pick up a lull size! lion on inv shoulders, anil to carry him round the ' ;l -‘‘ three tunes. The lion weighed 'JOU kilos. 1 ui not, so strong now. Sultan knocked it "lit i,f me considerably. No; I follow no particular regime—training, you call it — lid never have don*' so. I avoid excesses °f all kinds, especially of strong drink, and that is all." "You sometime* take amateurs into the with you. do you not?" "Krequeiitly. Bodies, usually. Women are much more courageous than men. A "■"man who or.ee offers to enter never draws back Men frequently do. Women are fur nobler nod more intelligent than Wen. That is obvious: they take much less alcohol. They certainly ought to be allowed vote. The first woman who entered tho cage with me was Mile. Ghinasei, of the varieties theater. That was in Paris m .}*'*• All the brutes in tny show were cohected in the cage. In 1879 Mile. Rou*- ••11. tragic ttCtriw*, also accompanied me. **“l surrounded by oli mv bom, recited Melpomene. In 1ST!) Mile. Josse. of Cher bourg, and in 1380 Mr. Crockford, of Dieppe, an English ship owner, repeated the experi ment. My guests tremble a good deal out side the door, but once inside the cage seem to master their emotion. The women al ways show more pluck." I had been looking out of the window of tje billiard room, and had seen some pea cocks strutting about the garden. "Are you superstitious?” I asked. "Ah! No. 13." ‘"No. I alluded to the peacock.” "I am not superstitious at all. That is all nonsense about 13. Would vou not rather take 13,000f. than 12.0001' ? Of course. ” ell, then, Alexiano is superstitious, and so is my wire. Sh > dreads a Friday on the loth of the month, and won't stir out of the house nor buy anything on such a day. I gave ruy first performance in Paris on Fri day. the lath of the month, and it was in Paris £ made my great success. For, as you see, I have been very successful. I attribute my success to my firmness of will and to economy. Economy is the great secret. I was very pnor and very unhappy when I was a lad. You see me now, at 47, rich, prosperous and famous. Will, will and en ergy are the weapons a man needs. With these I mastered my lions first, and the world afterward. But to succeed you must have money, and if you have no fortune you must save. This is what I did.” THE COST OF A LION’S KEEP. “Apropos of economy, you must have heavy expenses •” "Yes. i calculate my expenses in Paris at about 12,000f. a month, and it is at Paris we spend least. At Bordeaux I spent l,loof. a day, and of course when we are traveling in our special train we spend far more. The expenses include foci for the beasts, rent for space, and the tax on entertainments, which goes to the public assistance office. I use one horse a (lay to feed my animals. We give them beef twice a week. One day in the month they fast. A lion eats twenty pounds of flesh per diem, and drinks two quarts of cow’s milk every morning. The polar bears get fisli oil twice a week. Then there is the loss of the beasts to be considered. There is terrible mortality by consumption among lions, and a fion is worth from 20,000t‘. to 30,000f. The cost price of a lion, untamed, is £BOO. That is what I paid for Sultan, whp is now worth at least £2,000. He is the most magnificent speci men of a black-maned Atlas lion in Europe. You must consider the capital we have to sink in our ‘subjects’ when you calculate our expenses. On the other hand, the re ceipts are good. Neuiliy fair is one of the most productive of the places we visit. We give two performances every night and make a daily average receipt of £OO, On. Sundays wo usually make £IOO or £l2O, but with six performances at reduced prices. I forgot to mention one item of expense, which is the band. We only employ French men. and they are more expensive than Ger mans. I have not had a single German em ploye since 1871. You saw what a fuss was made because my colleague Pezon had a German band. He has had to dismiss them and employ Frenchmen. The Germans are being houuded out of every establishment in the business.” M. Bidel then again invited me to take a cue, which I did. to my complete discom fiture. While playing I asked him if in the daytime he ever felt any apprehension of danger. He answered that he never had any such feelings. His days were spent in quiet home life in the company of his wife and children —a sturdy little boy and a re markably beautiful girl of Ifi, who appears to lie wonderfully intelligent and advanced m her education. “I cultivate my roses and of an afternoon I plav billiards. In the evening I drive over to Neuillv and conduct my entertainment. You have seen to-day how we live. It is never otherwise.” The King of North America. From the San Francisco Examiner. “Lord Patrick McCartey, King of North America.” This was the inscription on a card which a queer-looking little old man, in high Wel lington boots and linen duster and trousers handed an Examiner man at the Palace Hotel yesterday .morning. The (xld litt'.e man wore an anitque high hat of the style of fifty years ago. and his high white colar and huge black tie further aided to make him a marked man among the mauy stylish people there. Altogether he seemed to lie a very Rip Van Winkle in an tiquity of make-up. The'King had bowed graciously when the reporter made himself known to him. “I have been King since 1860,” said his roval highness, “and I am just now waiting for her gracious majesty. Queen Kapiolani, to receive me. I sent up my card a while ago, but they sent word down that the Queen was asleep and could not see me till 1 o'clock. “It's that fellow Dominis that's a-doin' of it. He’s trying to influence her royal high ness against me. He better look out anil she better look out. Thev're in trouble and probablv ther'll want a little assistance from me before thev get through. I’m willing to aid them but I want to if treated properly. Everbody knows that North America is no small country to rule over. It is no pigmy kingdom, like Hawaii, and as for that tri fling littieganlen spot that Dominis isGover nor of, I wouldn't spit, on it. No, sir; I would not. so help me.” And the King, ns he said this, straightened himself back on the chair in the Palace cor ridor, which h" was using as his throne, and tipped his battered plug hat on the back of his head. Crossing one Wellington boot on ttie other he continued: "I would have ousted Cleveland and all the rest of them before now. but I thought I tvi ntd iust let things run along while I mixed with the common people and studied their need-. You know Diogenes used to sleep in a tub, and there have been several other instances where th greatest men of their time associated with the plebeians in order to find out what was best for them. “It is for this reason that I live on the water front.” H-re a humorous bystander touched the King of North Aiueri a on the shoulder and informed him that an elderly-looking lady and a much younger one with In rat the desk were the Queen and 1 Yin cess Liliokhani respectively. "Is that her gracious majesty?” said the little old man. as he hurriedly unfolded a package of his cards. Then, with courtly air ana regal steps, he advanced and pre dated her with the carte, tipping the an tique hat in a most dignified way at the same time. The eldorlv lady sm ’ed on the oueer crank, but told him t! at. while she certainly could not fee! otherwise than highly flat tered by the compliment paid her by h:s royal highness, yet it was with regret she must tell him she was not the Queen. “ Why, that wasn't theQueeu.” said he, as he came back to the crowd that had sur rounded him. The old man had been waiting for two dnvs to *ee Kapiolani. He first came to the Grand Hotel on Monday evening, rigged out as a foresail, and assured Clerk Weeks with great gmvitv that he must sec her. Being assured that she would arrive at 6 o'clock the King was promptly on hand Altogether his queer antics were the source of much wonderment to the guests.

That Sad, Tear-Stained Face Pressed Against the Window Pane. From the Cincinnati E >'r The inhabitants of Hard •n, a little village four miles north of I. neeburg, are considerably worked up ov.v the mys terious appearance as well as disappearance of a handsome and neatly attired young lady who alighted from a west-bound pas senger train on the Big Four Road at Law renceburg Junction carrving n halve in her arms; and, after wandering along the pike until darkness had overtaken her. applied at the humble residence of William Smothers for a night's lodging and something to cat. The infant, a tender blue-eyed girl, was ele gantly clothed, and appeared in excellent health, white the mother was pale, emaciated, and evidently quite ill. She gave her name as Mrs. Delayer, said she was 21 years of age and lived in New York; that her babe was but two weeks okl; that she was journeying to Indianapolis on business, and being WORN OUT WITH TRAVEL, had concluded to stop off of tlje train and take a few days of needed rest, and was willing to pay" liberally for her care and entertainment, at the same time exhibiting a large roll of money and presenting her kind hostess with a small sum as a forerunner of coming generosity on her part if they kept quiet about her presence and accorded her and her baby the hospitality of their unpreteutious home. The honest and un suspecting family were completely capti vates! with the address and manners of their guest, and the best the place afforded was at her command. After disposing of a light supper she requested to be shown a lied, and soon retired, but at various intervals through the night the accommodating family, who were sheltering the troubled stranger, were awakened BY HER DISTRESSING SOBS that told of sleep tieing driven from wearied eyes by streaming tears, and that a heart of sorrow forbids the wooings of slumber, while hours of grief were chasing rest from the body. Early yesterday morning she arose, and after learning all about the run ning of trains on the road near by, a short time before the arrival of the west-bound train she expressed her determination to conclude her trip to Indianapolis, and pro posed to leave the babe with the Smothei s family for a few days uutil she could finish her business at the Hoosier capital and re turn, promising to pay them most munifi cently for the care of her infant when she should come again. The unsophisticated Mrs. Smothers, with her heart full of sympathy for the poor stranger, kindly consented to the proposition. The young mother bestowed a score of linger ing kisses on the innocent face of the soon to be DESERTED BABE, and then hastened to the depot to take the train for Indianapolis. She refused to pur chase a ticket of the agent, but boarded the train, and when the conductor came around for her fare she desired to pay only to the first station, whicli was Guilford. Here she left the cars and waited until the next train goining in an opposite direction came along, when she again went aboard and traveled hack again over the route she had just gone, but failed to dismount at the station she had left an hour before. She continued on to ward Cincinnati: yet her curiosity or mater nal desire to again look upon the home where she had forsaken her own child compelled her to leave her seat in the car and gaze out of the window in the direction of her aban doned babe, and several parties who had been attracted by the SAD, PAI.E FACE of the feeble mother when she had taken the train in their presence a short time before when going in a different direction wore surprised at again seeing that same wan and now tear-staine* l face upon another train as it passed against the glass of the ear win dow, and when the train pulled out from the station where they had twice seen in less than an hour’s time the same strange woman both going and coming, their wonder as sumed the wings of gossip, and a hundred rumors about the unknown female tilled the air. Who she was. where she came from and why she aliandoned her offspring are ques tions that may be answered in the future, under the head of “another downfall, a young girl led to ruin and disgrace;” hut at present the people of excited HarrUn town have only the facts related upon which to build their conjectures. The woman was small of stature, dark complexioned, did not apical- to lie over 18 years of age, wore a neat fitting dress of some striped material, ■draw hat. dark feathers and trimming. In her conversation and manners she gave evidence of a lady of education and refine ment, and undoubtedly is the victim of some mans deception, and has attempted to hide the evidence of her shame.
