Liohs Loose In n Theater. '
Mr. Georgo Sanger, having engaged
with'Mr. Pnul Cloves, the proprietor of
the Porte Sfc. Martin Theater, Paris, to
Buppl.y eight lions, two dromedaries, and
two elephants, to appear in the "Bich
mix Bots," the liony were brought to the
theater. At 9 the next morning the
man in charge of the elephants, with an
expression of terror in his countenance,
said in a whisper to Mr. Sanger, " The
lions are out." "Well," said Mr. Sanger,
"WIiy don't you catch them?
Where's the kei per, Macomo ?" i Don't
know, s'r." Mr. Sanger, taking an oil
lamp with a wretched, smoked globe,
went on to tho stage, and, at tor walking
about for some time, was heard to say:
" Oh, there you are, are you?" and, looking
over a trap in the stage, he saw the
big lion, Tich borne, and presently the
other two came prowling by. "All
right, I will soon have thera," said Mr.
Sanger. At this the big lion threw up
his head and opened his ponderous jaws,
showing his great tusks. Mr. Sanger
took a heavy whip used by the elephant
keeper, and with this in one hand and
the lamp in the other, dashed into the
collar. The lions instantly dashed off.
Presently he was heard to say : " It's all
right. 1 have ono of them. " Mr. Sanger
came up on the stage, and said tho
other two were concealed among the
broken timber and waste at tho bottom
of the cellar, and that he would have
them directly. Several tried to peivjuade
lain to forego any further attempt.
"What am I to do?" he answered ; I
have engaged to bring eight lions here
to appear in the Miich aux Bois,' and
not to roam about tho theater. " At this
moment something was heard to fall.
Mr. Sanger, leaving without saying a
word, wont into the cellar again, and
niter searching in vain for the lions for
some time, discovered that they had got
into the bottom cellar. They had fallen
a depth of twenty feet. "All right, I
have got them, come on, come on,"
cried Sanger. Thinking the lions -were
secured, some friends descended, but
they were only caught up in a corner.
"Bring up thoso shutters, be quick,"
was the next heard; and seeing such
bravery shown by Mr. Sanger, they
plucked up courage, carried up several
shutters and hemmed them in. Then
the cages from -which they had so recently
broken being lovrffred, the capture
was easily effected. The hunt was
carried on in the most calm aud collected
manner possible, and proved beyond all
doubt that there wns not the slightest
fear on the part of Mr. George Sanger,
the modern Jinn-hunter.
Ho Have Up His Teeth.
The richest man Virginia ever produced
was Samuel Miller. His wealth,
as popularly calculated, amounted to
about 3, 000, 000. When his State was
invaded, during the war, Mr. Miller
himself, though a Union man, had a
visit from a roving band. " His stocks',
bonds, letters and account books." says
a correspondent of the Philadelphia
'reus, ' were thrown around with a
lavish hand, and hundreds of thousands
of securities taken away. Fortunately
for him, the ravagers did not know tho
full value of these papers ; but one of
them did recognize the glimmer of old gold
in tho artificial teeth of the Virginian.
' Get out them teeth,' casually remarked
the warrior, with a bayonet handy to
back the appeal. And Mr. Miller, like
a prudent man, got out his teeth, and
fared on soft diet for some time to
"Dorf't contradict me," said the stern
parent. ' You have been holding secret
interviews with Charles Mousterrat da
Montmorcnci. " He was a proud but
fashionable tailor and not to be trifled
with. "How did you find it out?"
Bobbed the daughter. "You never saw
us?" "No, I never saw you," ho returned,
indignantly ; "but my faithful
Bruno came running to me this very
evoning with a mouthful of cloth. I
recognized the pattern at onoe. I cut
tho pitjee to make a pair of pants for
young Montmoronci two months ago,
and he hasn't paid for them j'et." All
tihe answered was, "Father, dear t's
too awfully too-too," and she fell like a
little'' faded flower at his feet. Brbtikign
JJ2B STUART'S LAST FIGHT.
How the Dashing Trooper 3Iet His
Death From Nlioridnn's Men lit Yellow
The battle had evidently reached the
turning point, and Stuart saw the desperate
character of his situation. It was
difficult to use his artillerv in a
melee of friend and foe, and his left wing
was soon in utter disorder. rJ lie federal
attack had at last succeeded in breaking it
to pieces ; the men were scattering in
every direction, and seeing Mnj. Breathed
near'him, Stuart shouted :
"Breathed! take command of all the
mounted men in the road and hold it
against whatever comes. If this road is
lost we are gone !"
Such i.n order was precisely suited to j
the tastes of a man like Breathed. I was
intimately acquainted with him, and never
knew a human being who took such sincere
delight in desperate lighting. At
Stuart's Older Breathed saluted, and shouting
to the men to follow him, charged the
federal column, apparently careless whether
he was followed or not. lie was immediately
surrounded, and a hot sabre light
took place between himself and his swarm
of enemies. A sabre blow nearly took
him out of the saddle, and he received a
pistol shot in the side, but he cut down
one federal ofiicer, killed another with his
revolver, and made his way out, his face
streaming with blood. At this moment
the artillery opened, but a determined
charge was made on the guns, and all the
pieces we re captured but one. The driver
of this piece lashed his horses and rushed
the gun off" toward the Chickahominy,
followed by the cannoneers, cursing and
shouting: " For God's sake, boys, let's go
back; they have got Breathed!' It
would have been belter for the gun to
have been captured. As it was whirling
on at wild speed it broke through the cavalry,
throwing them into disorder, and before
the line was refoimed the enemy
stru k it and the battle was ended. Both
the Southern wings were driven, and
there was no hope of continuing the contest.
Stuart was nearly in despair, and
was seen galloping about, shouting and
waving his sabre in a desperate attempt to
rally his men, but it w;is impossible. The
field was a scene of tho wildest disorder.
Federals and Confederates were darting in
every direction, and one of the tormer, as
he darted by Stuart, fired at him and shot
him through the body.
The bullet entered his side, and, passing
through the stomach, inflicted a mortal
wound. In its passage it just grazed a
small bible which he always carried, the
id ft of his mother. He reeled in the sad-file,
and was caught by Cr.pt. Dorsey, of
the First Virginia; and, as he had closed
his eyes, he seemed about to expire on
the field. II is immense vitality, however,
sustained him, and, endeavoring to rise
erect again in his saddle, he exclaimed to
those around him :
"Go back and do your duty as I have
done mine, and .our country will be safe."
