The fight was one of the most furious the keepers ever saw. The noise of it and the frightened cries of the others, which tore at the bars in an effort to escape, aroused all the animals in the building, and an uproar com menced that was appalling. Over and over, from one end of the cage to the other, the two animals fought. The tigress made a desper ate struggle for her life, but the male finally caught her by the throat with his powerful jaws and she sank to the floor dying. The keepers eav there Wits a look of pleading in her eyes almost human and tragically pitiful. fJut the enraged tiger, his eyes gleaming fiercely, did not release his hold, even when beaten over the tead with iron bars., until the tigress that he had loved was dead. of.
