accompanied her mother to Marlenbad,

Dazzled by her beauty, he succeeded
without difficulty in getting an Intro

serious attachment, cordially recipro

Fear of ridicule prevented Goethe
contracting a marriage of the May and
December type. He tore himself away,
writing his well known "Marienbad El

back to Weimar.

"Goethe's last love," remained satisfied

LIONESS ATTACKED A HUNTER.
The South African papers contain de
tails of the death of H. A. Colenbran-
der, which resulted from an attack
made upon him by a lioness while hunt
Mr. Colenbrander, who had with him
three armed natives, had slightly
wounded the beast and was following
it up, when it crouched, and, though
again wounded, sprang at Mr. Colen
brander, lelzed him by the arm, and,
as he said afterwards, "shook him
like a rat."
The Kaffir boys had all remained
stanch, but Greet, the old hunter, cau
tioned them not to fire, and snatching
rifle from one of the others, placed
the muzzle behind the ear of the lion
ess and fired, the bullet carrying away
the back part of the skull, but It still
held on. He then put the barrel of the
rifle in its Jaws to sever them apart,
as the other two boys fired behind the
shoulder, which killed the animal. The
gun barrel was grooved by the teeth
of the lioness, some of which were bro
ken on it.
Mr. Colenbrander's death, resulted
from blood poisoning several days later,

ELEPHANT IS GREAT IN CRIME
.Few more impressive confidences can
be Imparted than one in which a Hln
doo describes how he knows his ele

so seemingly trivial, and yet In reality
of such deadly significance. His story
is so full of details that prove the
man's profound understanding of what
he is talking about that one remains
equally amazed at the brute's power to
dissemble and its Intended victim's in
sight Into the would-be murderer's
character. And yet. from the psycho
logical standpoint, an elephant never
gives any other such indication of
mental power as Is exhibited In its re
venge. That patient, watchful. Impla

other animal (for it is the rule with
tuskers to detest their next neighbors)
speaks more conclusively of a high in

false, that have been told of their abil
ity. Such concentration and fixedness

pretense, and, when the time comes,
such derrate, unhesitating energy as
homicidal animals exhibit, are impos

of successful men and enterprises Is a
story of work and perseverance. No

determined business is the result.
The young girl who responded with
