FOHEST ADVENTURE. '"When our regiment was ordered &?,m into the Indian Territory I con doled to leave. Another regiment had jciaacd us, with an older sutler than I Tir.M. Hiidthcre was not room for both, -7 I srald out to him. At Jefferson City I HSictPelby's Menagerie,Tom Telby, the onraer, was an old friend of mine, and odbon he found that I was out of busi ness he asked me to go with him. lie Ibiew that I was not only an expe rienced horseman, but that I was con sttlerable of a horse-doctor, and the .... 1 t 1 I V;j afl8 he ollcreu tempteu me to join Ik. id.. His menagerie was a good one ; collection of wild animals being jio extensive, and the specimens .iter than the average of those usual on exhibition, lie had come from .. Louis, and meant to strike the Mississippi again by the great IStecl ville and i'uiwiiigton highway. Lur izr the lirst week of my engagement L took charge of four performing rues when on the road, riding one ai':.' tl leading the others. At Steel ville e remained three days, and when we ready to move from that place I via called to a. new position. Jack .jAA-voy, the man who had formerly j;jrge of the performing horses, had n laid up by a sprained shoulder; br; &1? t he had recovered, and when we t Stoelvillc he was able to take his st again, l was piaeeu in cnarge oi T 1 1 ' 1 - l' 1 tbo team, or cage, containing the lcn gsi tiger. "From bteclvillo to Caledonia we popped three times, taking six days la the passage. 1 not only drove the am which took the tiger over the u1, but was very soon called to pur chase food for the animals. I had fcud some experience in trading in that section of the country, and Pclby fancied that I could buy to better ad vvuitagc than the former caterer had cLmic. On the fourth day from Cale donia we stopped at a small settle rr.ont where arrangements had been trade for an exhibit: n. We pitched on tents at the ci-roads tickets t:fty cents each am-, vc had a full Louse. That night Mr. Pclby informed me that he had fed out the last of Lis meat, and that he should want more in the morning. I knew the pro vision was gone, and had already been looking around for a fresh supply. "You must understand that this settlement was not much of a village. store, a smith's bhv), and two or t :r,V Jllfilll dwellings.

I "v tfni-t.l ni pipht o'clock in tlie morning, and at eleven wo reached the settlement whero we uaa ien m midl tlmt meat could be obtained: l.nt not a scran could be find. There waa not an ox in the place, and only two cows. But we were assured that a few miles further on wo should find ulinf w wn.nt.ral. So on we went, and tho afternoon crept half away without bringing us in oigui, ui auj .nb thing which we could kill, . . "Tho day was a very warm one, and tho hatches upon tho cages were onen to civo a good circulation of air for tho animals. My tiger was un easy enough. lie prowled, and scratched at his bars, and ever and anon he leaped agaiust the side of Ins narrow house 'with a force that shook me in my Beat. At a brook where wo stopped to water 1 spoue wun x eiuy about tho tijrer. I told him the beast was becoming savage. "Nevermind,' said lie; 'wen una something before night. The first animal we see by the wayside we'll take, if we have to steal it.' lint this did not satisfy me. Ihe tiWrwns ft full-crown one. and almost wO ' o , a nowcrful as he niicht have been m hi3 native jungle. I did not feel easy. I suggested that we had better Kin one of the dogs. 13nt Pelby would not listen to this. He knew that the Inrcrr r beasts were huncrrv, and that they would kick up a great fuss; but he believed they would stand it some hours yet. "It was not so much of the welfare nf tlifi animals that I thought as of my own welfare. I suggested to Pelby that the cage I drove w;as not one of the strongest. "He laughed at me. 'Why,' said he, 'the tiger might bump away a month at that cage, and he couldn't start a bar.' "But I was not so sure of that. I believed that some of the bars were already started. The jolting of the wagon over tlie rougu roads had gradually loosened tho hold of the wood upon the iron, and I told Mr. Pelby that if he could hear the jarring which I had heard, he would not be quite so confident of the tiger's pow erle.ssuess. "'Pooh!' said he, laughing at me. If von are so easily friditened as that, you will never do to drive a leading team. I'll put you on to the monkeys.' "I didn't relish that kind of lip at all; and I told Mr. Pelby that I'd drive his tiger as long as he had a tiger to drive, unless I found some thing better to do. We started on again. Jaclvson s Inn was twenty miles distant, and that was our next place of exhibition. j. It was now past three o'clock in the afternoon, and as the road was very rough we had a good look for being on the move until after dark. Mr, Pelby lead the column with a four- horse team; next followed the cage continuing a pair of lions; next, a full grown grizzly bear; next a pair of loopards; and next came my team, with the Royal Bengal tiger; whilcbc hind me followed panthers, black bear.-,, hyenas, zebra, ostrich, moose, and monkeys. "I toil you, the wild beasts were hungry; ajul mv tiger was getting to be ugly He crowlcd and snarled, and 1 could hear him tearing at the bars. By and by he made a new movement. You remember I told you that the scuttle, or hatch, on top of the cage, was open. This hole was about two feet square, and guarded with traverse bars, three running one way, and three the other. The tiger leaped up and caught these bars with his claws. I turned and saw that he still hung by them, and that hi3 weight buckled them. I took the but of my whip and beat him off. He growled ferociously for a while, and then spent a season quietly. At length, however, he commenced another bout, and pretty soon caught the bars of the scuttle again. There was a terrible cracking of the wood, and just as I turned the but of my whip the bars came out, and the hole was entirely open. I stopped my horses, and then sprang up to shut the trap-door; but the tiger was quicker than I was. As I reached out my hand he came up with a inrious bouna. caicnniiJ xne ! outside of the cage with his claws, and ' briii-Mii- full halt :hi.? bodv out thiondi . .i. . r ,-.,.'- n 1,;,, Uie UK' I'WUIUj;.

There I was, upon mv foot-board, with no weapon at hand, and the tiger loose upon the case before me. I am freo to confess that I was sore afraid. In fact, I was so stricken with fear that, for a few moments. I had no power to move. I was utterly paralyzed. I knew that the tiger was hungry, ana imu ue w mml. "Rut. T think mv fear saved me. I stood upon my board and gazed di ww.lv into tho beast's eve gazed without moving a muscle gazed be cause I had not tho power 10 ao otherwise. By and by my senses came to me, and I was beginning to plan for escape, when I heard Mr. Pelby's voice. He had seen the trouble, and had hurried to my assistance. "Don't take youreyes off from him ! he cried. 'Watch him for your life I "It flashed upon me then that I had been doing just tho right thing, and a good portion of my strength and con fidence returned to me. The tiger was upon his haunches, watehing me narrowly, and seeming to be trying to avoid me. I do not say that I felt easy or assured, for, to tell the truth, I had no great amount of confidence in that fellow's good intentions. I believed if he could get my back to wards him he would make quick work with me. But relief came. Before my mmkinc knees had ouite given out Mr. Pplbv was bv mv side, and as he step ped upon the foot-board he whispered to me to get down. "It's a risk.' I heard him say; 'but I'll risk much before I lose that fel low. "I leaned unon the ground, and hastened to the heads of my horses. The whole train had stopped and all the drivers saw what was going on. I could see him as he stood in rny place upon the board, and I could also see the tiger. The beast shrank lower down as he saw his master, and Pelby stepped upon the top of the cage. "Go down, sir 1 Down with you!' said Pelby ; and as he spoke he raised his whip and gave the tiger a cut across the shoulders. The beast hesitated and growled, but the master was firm . The whip was raised again , and another blow was struck. "'Down, sir! Down, I say!' "The tiger turned and placed his fore-paws upon the edge of the open ing, and one more cut sent him back to his den. Mr. Pelby quickly closed the trap, and bolted it down ; and when he turned towards me I saw that he was pale as death. He ac knowledged that he had faced the monster without a full assurance of his own power, but he had resolved to try the experiment, and the result -t . -m . m 1 - 1 1 it showed that he had a good share or nerve. "In half an hour after this we reached a settlement where we obtained some fresh meat; and when I saw the tiger seize and tear the tough rump which was thrown to him, I thanked my stars that those claws and those jaws had not found work upon me. 'I remained with the nienacerie until we reached New Orleans some two months in all and you may be assured that I never allowed the ra tions for those animals to fall short again. A Great Country.
