THE KINQ OF BEASTS.
li Merely n Hie Cat, After All, and m
Connrd nt Heart.
if wo quit heraldry for fact nnd goby
tho testimony of travelers nntl hunters,
it is very doubtful whether tho lion do
Ecrvea lih inrtgiiiflcrut rctmlittion. It is
his appearance, no doubt, which lias
gained for him tho appellation of "hlrifc
of beaita," with all llio regal honor per
taining to it. Ceitultily Iio looks "every
inch u 1:ing." Nothing can bu finer. Tho
fancy ltelf could concelvo nothing moro
fittingly reptebentativo of majesty than
tho full grown initio Hon, gazing with
great yellow eyes, which stem to know
no fear, and tho amplo honors of his
ehaggy mano wrapped round his mnsslvo
front nnd forearms. Iio looks llko tho
embodiment by uaturo of lordliness and
magnanimity, and ho has been adopted
as eucli in all litcraturo nnd pootry from
Homer nnd Kschylns down to tho "lion
comlquo" of our music halls. Yet ho is
only a cat n great cat after all, and
those who know him in his native wilds
givo a very different character of "fells
leo" from popular conceptions.
Wo do not wish to calumnlato a crea
tine bo Intimately connected with Brit
ish story and so dignified in bearing and
behavior, for nobody can deny that tho
lion is a great gentleman in his manners.
Nevertheless, African Hportsmcn rclato
that ho can show himself as cowardly as
ho is cruel; that ho will abandon his
consort and cubs in a moment of ex
treme danger, and that ho scarcely over
charges straight homo upon anybody
who, armed or unarmed, has tho pres
enco of mind to await his onset. Ho is
described as very nervous and very cun
ning, and dreading boyond everything
tho superior prowess of tho whito man.
Tho early Dutch settlers at tho capo
speak of lions prowling round tho fort
at night "in bitch numbers as though
they would tako it by storm." Now ono
must go very far Into tho African
"veldt" to seo a lion, and a strango fact
is that ho has learned tho craft of silence
and is seldom or never heard to lift up
his mighty voice except in tho far wilder
ness, where tho hunters havo not como
except singly. Thus it Is written in ati
African guidebook: "Though his foot
prints may frequently bo seen near tho
mountains of Lokarou and Uoatlanama,
and he will sometimes venturo to carry
away an ox from a wagon span there
abouts, ho rarely or never mokes his
presence known by his roar, having
learned apparently that It will only havo
tho effect of frightening oil tho few timid
antelopes upon which all hopes of re
plenishing his larder depend, or, worse
still, of betraying his position to his in
veterate enemy and persecutor, wan."
It Was All Lore.
A writer for tho Boston Transcript
was tho witness tho other day of n very
pretty sceno on a street car. There was
nu old negro woman a very black old
woman whoso face, besides being black,
was pockmarked. No doubt a superfi
cial observer would have called her re
pulsive, but there was a sweet nnd kind
ly look in her eyes and a benevolent ex
pression about her black features which,
as you looked at her, gavo you n gllmpso
of something beautiful.
At her side, with his sweet child face
toward tho window, knelt a little whito
boy a handsomely dressed littlo chap
with blond curls nnd blue eyes. Ho
asked tho old black woman questions
now and then, which sho answered with
a deep, grave, kind voice, and sho called
tho littlo fellow "honey."
Presently this littlo Caucasian leaned
over tenderly toward tho old woman,
put his arm lovingly around her neck
and laid his pink and whito cheek against
her black face. That obliterated every
bit of repuMveness tho woman might
havo had with every person of sentiment
in that car. To this little boy tho old
black faco was entirely beautiful, be
cause it was all love. The beauty that
ho saw was a good deal moro thau skin

THERE WAS GOOD FISHING.
Llkctvlie Goo J f.iirk on n l'lionutnenally
Tho Rccno of tho following incident
was nbout 40 miles from Qlovcrsville,
N. Y., on n beautiful littlo lako just
across tho tableland at l'lseco lake, in
Hamilton county. Tho day wn all that
n fisherman could dosiro, and every con
dition was right for good fishing. A
paity of threo wero in tho boat namely,
L. C, Everest, hh friend, Professor
Spencer from Brooklyn, and tho writer,
Thoy had taken nearly 00 pickerel in
less than half a day, and the sizo was
good, weighing from 2 to 0 pounds.
The last turn around tho "lucky point"
was being inado beforo wo started for
homo. Everest, who was trolling one of
tho lines, said: "I'vo got nnother. He'i
a big ono from tho way ho pulls." Ever
est lot him play at ono time nearly 200
fcot of lino beforo tho fish could be
turned. When ho had been brought
into sight, ho was not so largo as some
wo had already in tho boat, but there
was an unusual motion nil about him.
Soon tho lino was drawn so tightly it
was necessary to let him play again,
When brought back, it wnB discovered
that n largo pickerel had attempted to
swallow tho ono on tho hook, which was
now quite exhausted.
Tho big fellow still followed, shark
like, for tho dead body of his victim,
which, howovor, wo wero not disposed
to givo up. Just as Everest was about
to swing tho fish on his hook into tho
boat tho professor took up his oar, hop
ing to striko and thus capturo tho largo
one. Tho movement of tho oar attract
ed tho attention of tho fish, and in a
twiuklo ho made n pass at it. Tho blado
was about 7 inches wide, but his jaws
grated across tho upper nnd lower edges,
sawing n groovo on either sido with his
sharp teeth. Tho professor, by carrying
his oar forwnrd with tho movement of
tho fish, at tho samo tlmo raising it from
tho water, landed tho luigo follow into
Ho weighed 10 pounds. Tho fish on
tho hook only weighed throo pounds, but
showed signs of battle, being bitten in
several placos. Upon opening him we
found, ns is often tho enso, a fish of
smaller sizo in his stomach. This ono
showed signs of life and was opened.
Wo then discovered a pretty littlo gold
chatelaine watch and wero surprised
that tho timo ngreodwlth our watches
and thnt it was running.
Moro than pleased with our fishing ex
pedition, wo returned to tho Adirondack
hotel and informed Landlord Georgo A.
McCoy of our good luck, nt tho same
timo showing tho watch. In less than
two minutes all tho guests about the
houso wero in tho ofHce, and nmong the
number was a pretty young lady from
Albany, who said that tho watch was u
token of friendship which sho had prized
very highly. When on the lako in the
early part of tho day, it had fallen into
tho water, and, sho supposed, was lost.
It is needless to say sho wns overjoyed at
its recovery. Albany Journal.

Tho story that tells of swans singing
beforo deatli is very old, nnd of courso is
founded upon fancy. Tho idea has been
brought down from ancient myths. The
voico of tho swan Is extremely harsh
and disagreeable, without a single mu
sical note in it, and no good reason can
bo found for likening some of tho world's
sweetest poets to this unmelodious voiced
Tho only approach to a verification
wo havo ever seen is tho following,
clipped some years ago from a Virginia
"A sporting friend, rocently returned
from a foray upon tho Potomao river,
below Mount Vernon, was tho guest of a
venernblo and highly intelligent lady,
who has always lived on tho Potomac.
Speaking of tho swan, sho gavo it as her
decided opinion that this bird was in the
habit of singing or making n plaintive
nolso when dying. The reason sho gave
for entertaining this belief was that on
very many occasions in tho Inst CO years
sho had been awakened at night by n
sweet and exceedingly sad noise, some
thing liko tho tones of n flageolet coming
over tho water, and that on every sub
sequent morning a dead swan was found
to bo lloating on tho water or to have
been washed ashore." Pittsburg Dis
patch. The Hang Called In.
One of tho most noticeablo changes in
fashion this season is that which affects
tho dressing of tho hair. Tho "fringo"
has been gradually giving placo to softly
waved bandeaux, nnd tho bandeaux nro
creeping gradually lower down until the
return seems Imminent to tho puffed and
waved bandeaux to bo seen in the por
traits of Jennio Llnd taken along in tho
fifties. To young nnd delicato faces the
stylo has an agreeable piquancy and
quaintness, but to women past their first
youth or with strong, coarse features tho
bang has a softcnlug effect much to bo
Anothor stylo now gaining favor and
ono becoming to round faces with low
foreheads is that of turning tho hair
back from tho forehead loosely in a twist
thnt is lost in tho light coils and puffs ar
ranged in tho middlo of tho forehead.
In this stylo of coitluro tho front hair is
parted off on either sido and twisted in
tho old fashioned way into two rolls.
