Robertson tells us in Cas- eell's Magazine that, compared with ; giraffes and elephants, lions, panthers and tigers are small; they are always : bo aggressively ferocious, however, ; that care must be exercised in pack ing them up for shipment. To see such goods in process of transit is to see simply a box that might be taken for a packing case full of sew ing machines or some other harm less article of peaceful merchandise. Look at the label, however, and you will read in large letters: "Wild ani mals with care." Sometimes this ia supplemented by a drawing of a lien or tiger or snake, or whatever the animal inside may be. on the box. This is in case of its having to be handled by people that do not know the language in which the label is written. The box is only a box in ' - appearance, the woodwork being merely the outside covering of the v iron cage wiihin. The whole thing n is called a den. and access to it is obtained by lifting a sliding door at one end. Behind this is a small gate way, through which the animal is fed and watered. At hjs journey's end the other end of the "box is knocked off, the exposed Ironwork is - lifted out of its sockets, and . the captive is fee to walk out not where he likes but into the cage, against the open door of which has been placed the open end JAthe den he has been traveling in. It is easy to get him , to walk from the small den to the large cage, from cramped captivity to comparative freedom. Still, he is sure to be suspicious, and to save time he has been kept from food and wa "t ter, both - of which are temptingly "-idisplayed before him in the cage. He ' Ves a bound forward, intending to , rVU-jHj,. t0 now familiar lair with . the 'joint he seizes; but the bars are dropped against him and he glares defiantly at his jailers. Similar de-' vices are resorted to :in getting a dangerous animal from his large cage into a, small traveling den; if he prove - ob3.tinate" he is. quickly driven out by lighting a fire? of straw in the cage.

Twice the Executive Mansion Was , on the Verge of Destruction.' ;i r , ' " Saved toy the Heroic Work of Gallanl - Firemen President Johnson' Generosity to the lAave Boys. ' ' Special "Washington Letter.3 ' OO.CTpiHERE are only two of us I who draw the maximum pension of $50 per month," says Calhoun Clark, one of the retired veterans of our city lire department. "This pension roll is kept up by the voluntary contributions of the fire men. For many 'years I gave up one dollar every month for the pension fund. The lowest pension paid is six dollars per month and the highest is $50, which amount I draw, and it gives me a competence." The old gentleman will not discuss his career and his deeds of daring, but he is known as cue of the bravest of the brave, a man whose career in the fire department of the national cap ital would fill a volume. He likes to talk about the fire department and its good work, but never about himself. "It is not generally known nowa days that on two occasions the white house came near burning down,"- said Mr. Clark. "Both times the fires oc curred during the administration of Andrew Johnson. In 1867 the white house stables took fire just before daybreak. Those stables were lo cated on the ground just east of the white house and opposite the west entrance of the treasury department. They were brick stables, but the woodwork and the inflammable eon tents made a hot fire. We had a hard time that morning, for I was one of the coldest mornings I have ever known. I was driver of Hibernia En gine company, which was located three blocks west of the white house. The alarm was brought to us by a cav alryman, and we were very soon on the scene. In these days we did not have electric alarms, as they have now. Well, very soon after us came the Meigs and the Ruckcr engines with their firemen. All three engines worked hard that bitter cold morning. We prevented the "conflagration from extending to the white house, but we could not save the stables. "When our work was over we were all taken down into the basement ol the white house and supplied liberally with coffee and other things to d'rink. and everything eatable that there was on the market was spread out for us and served to us in elegant style. We had an impromptu state dinner there that morning, and I never ate a meal that I enjoyed so much, because I wds hungry, and cold end in good condition to enjoy a meal. 'It was the greatest breakfast the firemen here ever had tendered to them, and, I guess, we were the only firemen in the world who were ever entertained at break fast by the executive head of a na tion. "Col. William Dickson was chief en gineer of the government fire depart ment at that time. He is the man who was foreman of the star route jury, and who was fcr many years democratic national committeeman for the District of Columbia, and one oi the most popular of our citizens. He was a brave man and a successful chief. "The other time the white house was in danger was when the conser vatory took fire. That, you know, is adjoining the west waj'of the white house, and it was d'iP Lit to keep the fire from taking id of the main building. But by hard work and care ful attention to every detail of the A WHITE HOUSE BREAKFAST. (President Johnson Entertaining tlie Fire Fighters.) work in hand we kept the white house from taking fire, and we saved a por tion of the conservatory, too. But it was a close call for the white house. "We were in the federal government fire department then. It is not gen erally known tiat the city govern ment and the federal government each , maintained a fire department during and- after the civil war. But vhen.j Grant became president, and Sherman j commander of the army, there was a great cry about retrenchment and re form. As a result of this clamor Gen. Sherman abolished' the federal government fire department,- and wo all returned to duty in the city 'fire department.' There has been no fed eral fire department since that time. It is as a member of the city depart ment that I am pensioned and on the retired list. ' "' ; "The hottest fire I was eve? en gaged in fighting began at 10:40 a..m. September 18, 1877, in the patent of fice, in the model rooms on the Ninth and G street wing. That fire -raged for two days and nights. Fire en gine's came here-from "Baltimore to helo us. and they rendered good seTr- lce. The lire lasted from Wednescay morning until Friday afternoon, and smoldered for some time after that. The" heat was so intense and awful that firemen at the nozzle could only play en the flames for a couple it minutes at a time';'Thcn they, would ret're . almost, roasted, and others would take their places. The steam engines kept puffing- and blowing' con stantly and the water supply of the city was alnlost overtaxed. "All along G street the houses were in- crreat danger, The Baltimore en-, issisii gtnes 'were wofked "for Qieir protec tion. -'There was a - large' stable on that street which' was in danger all of the time, and, if it had caught fire; that whole Section of the city would have been in danger, The "Baltimore boys -protected that , stable - and ad joining buildings, and kept them sat urated with water. - The flying cin ders fell on roofs which - were wet enough' all the time to put them out. The fire was finally stopped at the mil'-iA Vi jS-a)? ffawii,i"'il"ii,,'iiii . 1 THE RUN TO TIIE FIRE. corner of Seventh and G street, checked, headed off and driven back. But it was the most terrific work that I ever experienced. The model-rocm. of the patent office was practically eaten out by fire before we could get there with our nozzles. It was a tre mendous loss to the government. We could do nothing to save the model room, and it was all that we could do to save the building which is the home of the interior department. "The other government department buildings have been free from 'fires, excepting the old "navy department building on Seventeenth street. That fire occurred so long ago that I have forgotten the date. Besides, it didn't amount to much, for we put it out in a very short time. "Did1 you ever hear of the burning of the Smithsonian institution? That oc curred about dinner time in February, 1866, or 1S157. Tatk about cold weather! That was a hummer! . Wc worked in snow a foot deep and with a blizzard of wind sweeping around us. We poured icicles on the five. Tlie water seemed to almost freeze as it left the nozzles. We had an awful time with the hose, too, for it was almost frozen. And if the water hadn't been running through it very fast it would have frozen in the hose. We saved the walls, but that was all. It was impossible to save anj thing else. The wind helped the fiame3 and completely baiHed allcf cur efforts. If it hadn't been for the bitter cold and the terrible wind we might have done better. We certainly worked hard enough. "There were three other notable fires in wliich cold weather prevailed against us and our work. Wall's cpera house burned down. It was on the corner of Minth and Louisiana avenue, close to Pennsylvania avenue. The site has since been occupied by Ford's theater, and is now the common vaudeville play house. That was an awful night of hard work in winter weather. "Then there was the burning of Lin coln's hall, the home of the Y. M. C. A. That fire occurred in midwinter and kept us hard at 'work all night, but it went up in smoke. Some of the firemen succumbed to the cold and were obliged to give up. There were many frozen fingers and toes and ears, and some of the men never recovered from the ef fects of the work of that night. ' "In the winter of 1886 the National theater burned. We were all praying that no fire would occur that night, for it was blustery and cold a sort of damp cold that penetrates even to the bones. But just after midnight we were called out, and we worked all night to save adjoining property. The theater was doomed when we got there. But it was on Pennsylvania, in the heart of the city, near two prominent hotels, and surrounded by business houses-. We saved all of that property. But it was; a night of exhaustion and terror to all cf us on account of the weather. "Well, I'm glad it is all over. But, to tell the truth, I really enjoyed the work, the excitement of it and the feel ing that we were heroically endeavor ing to save life and property for our fellow men. There is a great deal of pride in the breast of a true fireman. He feels that he is a public benefactor all the time; and let me tell you that I have seen many a fireman do deeds which would 'give him a nero's crown if done in battle." Then, turning from the subject of a fireman's life itt the early days, Jlr. Clark said : "Some evening I will tell you about my experience as a page boy in the house of representatives. I was there when some of the greatest men in the land were members. Ex-Presi-'dent John Quincy Adams was one of them. I was there when Morrill, of Vermont; Sumner, of Massachusetts; Drcckenridge.of Kentucky, and Brooks, of South Carolina, came to congress. Brooks was the man who assaulted Sumner with a cane. All four of the men whom I have named were physical giants. Sumner was the handsomest, of them all. He was a natural athlete. If he had taken a different course iri life he could have whipped a regiment of Suilivans, Corbetts and Sharkeyis. I'll tell yon about those men some even- Ling scon. SMITH D.

' It Wouldn't Hitg Happened, IIow evesrj If the Auctioneer Hadn't . Forgotten ills Eyeglasses ' en This Particular Day. "I owe my start in life to the fact that an 'estimable old gentleman for got to put his eyeglasses in his pocket one morning," said a prosperous busi ness man from a sister city, to a Xew Orleans Times-Democrat man. "It's rather a curious story," he went on, "and I'll tell it it as briefly as possible. A good many years ago I was a young fellow of 25 or thereabouts I drifted into Louisville in search of a job that didn't materialize, and the upshot of it was that I found myself practically broke in. a strange city. Up to that time I had always worked for small Wages and had never succeeded in ac cumulating as much as $50, but I had an abiding faith that if I could once get hold of a modest stake I codld launch out for myself and make some money. "One morning, when I was wander ing about with only, two or three silver dollars in my pocket, looking for a chance to go to work at anything that might' offer. I dropped into a big down to wn. room where some real estate was being sold at auction. A large crowd was present, and there was an inde scribable feeling of tension in the air that wanted me something was about to happen. While 1 was standing there, only vaguely interested, the auction eer, who was quite an elderly gentle man, put up a piece of improved city property, and aftr a considerable pause received a bid of $2G0. I could see that the smallness of the amount ex cited surprise and was also aware cf a commotion in one corner, where half a dozen previous bidders were gathered together in an excited group. They seemed to be quarreling about seme thing, and meanwhile the auctioneer was indignantly appealing for a re spectable oiler. 'Make it $2,500,' he shouted; 'does any gentleman bid $2,500?' lie looked directly at me. and l.made a gesture of denial. 'Thank you.' he exclaimed, great!' to my sur prise; 'the gentleman over there bids twenty-live hundred; and, if I can help r- CI vJ.Viilfflllllln..-. "LOOK HERE," I SAID. it, no combination of buyers is going to be allowed to dictate prices at thi3 sale!' With that he suddenly knocked down the property to me. "No sooner was this done," con tinued the story teller, "than a great. uxroar of protests arose from the group in the corner. They insisted that they had been given no chance to bid, but tne autcioneer stood firm, and, calling me to the platform, re quested my name and address and a 20 per cent, cash deposit on the $2,500. By that time I realized, cf course, that some extraordinary chance had thrown a fine piece of property into my hands at a fraction of its real value, and I did some" quick- thinking. "Then I took a desperate chance. I pushed through the crowd, which was already interested in the next sale and beckoned to a little fat man who had been one of the loudest kick ers a few moments before. 'Lock here,' I said, drawing him aside, 'do you want to be my silent partner for an hour or so?' 'What d'you mean?' said he. I gave him the truth in a dozen words. 'Now let me have that $500 deposit money I added, 'and we'll share the iroiits, whatever they are.' The little man looked at me shrewdly. 'This is a big joke on all of us,' he said, grinning, 'and I guess I'll risk the deal.' At the same time he counted out $500 and put it in my hand'3. .Then, to make a long story short, my silent partner offered me $1,000 cash for my interest, and as $1,000 looked about as big as a moun tain at that . stage of the game I promptly accepted. That thousand, fortunately placed, gave me the start that has kept me oing ever since. " 'But what about the-eyeglasses did you say ? V "Why, the auctioneer, as I . aft erward learned, was very near sighted; and on the morning- to which I refer he had forgotten his glasses. That was why he mistook my gesture of disavowal for a sign of assent, and forced me,' in spite of myself, into a good- thing." "I never understood the exact true inwardness of the deal, but the facts in tha rough were that a clique of speculators had formed a combine , to keep down prices, but, owing to' some misunderstanding, failed to bid promptly on the property which ,1 secured. . The. auctioneer was onto the game- and anxious to break it up, hence his- precipitancy in knock ing down, the 'lot to yours truly. I heard, later on, that- my portly silent partner, -made $8,000 out of the trans actioh but I . didn't , begrudge him the money.

" It 5? not often that the very young recognize t ha advantages of higher edu cation, but in this case it is eviijen that little Willie, even in his first six months of school, had grasped the meaning and value of superior knowledge, says the Chicago Chronicle. It was one of his restless afternoons and to keep him busy he had been set to counting a basketful of walnuts. Stretched full length on the kitchen table he labori ously piled them out one by oue in a big heap. Tessie, who was a past mis tress of the art of "plaguing," picked a double handful from the pile and car ried them off to the hammer. "I only took 12," sh& said, sweetly. Willie gazed after her fiercely for awhile, then began to count them all over again. Fifteen minutes later, when he had a second time almost emptied the basket, Tessie again raided his stores. "1 took ten this time," she said. There was a moment of storm, but it ended with Willie beginning once more at the beginning.
