Tho Paris letter of tho London Post
gives details of un extraordinary enter
tuiumcut given ut tho Plaza do Madrid
in tho presence of 1,1100 spectators. This
was n combat between a rnynl Bengal
tigor nnd nu Audnlusiuu fighting bull.
Tho tiger, Cesar, was a full grown
bruto belonging to Spessnrdi, tho train

thing with it and had, indeed, once
nearly fallen n victim to its ferocity.

A cage-17 yards squnro by 4 in height
had been erected in tho middlo of tho
arena, and thouuimnls wero brought on
in vans, tho bull being tho first to bo
released into tho iuclosuro. Tho bruto
immediately began to run round nnd
round his pribou, bellowing nud throw
ing tip sand nud gravel with his hoofs.
Tho instant tho tiger cntcrod tho cage
bo gave a roar nud bounded op tbu ball,
avoiding tho horns, nud fixed on his
flanks and belly with both teeth and
claws. Tho bull remained still for a
few seconds, nnd then sccuiud to be sink
ing backward to tho ground. Tbo spec
tators thought that all was over, but
tho tiger lot go for a second to tako an
other hold, nud in tho brief interval
was kicked over by tho wild plunges of

roneatod four or fivo times, tho bull .
varying his tactics occasionally by bang
ing his adversary against tbo bars.
When tbo bnll stopped, tho tigor lay
limp ou tho ground, and tho crowd,
thinking ho wns dead, cried, "Bravo,
Tbo bull stood stamping for a mo
niiut in tho middlo of tho cngo, und
thou, seeing tho tiger did not move, ap
proached und sinolled. bin). But Cesni
wus only shamming death nnd seized
tbo bull's muzzlo in his powerful jawi
so tho nuinial conld nut movo. Eventu
ally, howover, ho was released, and nft-
or stamping furiously on tho tigor again
caught him on 11b horns. This time the
tossing, stamping nud banging appar
ently really ended in Cesar's death.
Tbo ongo was then opened nud tho bull
rushed out and back to his stablo. ' Foi
precaution's sake tho tiger's van wni
brought up, und, to tho general sur
prise Cesar roso to his fcot, glauced
round ns if ufraid the bull was still
thcro, and then bouudod into the van.
The tiger was found to havo llvo nbi

wounds from tho bull's horns. It is said
that all wild uulmals benrs, lions,
panthors and tigers faro badly in com

Here is a Sioux City (la.) Sunday
They were studying in tho catechism
about tbo wonderful greatness nud pow

asked tbo teacher. It was generally ad-'

rather mischievously propounded a stic
kler porbaps as n test of faith. "Could
God make two and two equal llvo?" h
askod. Tho query rather startled th
littlo girls in tbo class, and their facet
took on a worried, puzzled expression.
They had uovcr thought of such a thing
as that, and it looked us if tboir faith
was wavering. The teacher waitod with ,
a rather amused smilu ou his face. Then
up shot a littlo hand. " Well, " asked
tho teacher, "what do you think nbonl
it?" "Yes, sir, ho can," was tho prompt
and certain response. Now it was the
teacher's turn to look surprised. "Well,

TO CORntCT A CALENDAR,
4 .Schema tigirentfiit to Correct yur
Inarrurta Iinp Vo-tri.
The prestnt year Is. as Is well kuown.
a leap year, says London Echo, and ac
cording to the Oregorian, correcting
the Julian rule of the calendar, it will
be the last leap year for eight year?, or
until the year 1904. The Oregprdu
rule, howjnver, though a great Improve
ment on tho Julian and assimilating on
the average the length of the calenlar
year much more nearly to that of tbo
true year, is not perfect. By It a' leap
year is dropped at the end of three oen
turles out of four, so that any year di
visible by 100 without remainder Is not
e. leap year unless it Is also divisible by
100; thus. 1000 will not be a leap year:
3000 will and 2100 will not. A
more accurate rulo would be to drop 'it
leap year at the end of each successive
period of 128 years; and, In accordance
with this, a French nstrnnomer, M.
Auric, points out that it would be prcf
ferable to retain 1000 as a leap year and
drop ono In 1920, which Is a multiple
(fifteen tiroes) nf 128. But tinkering tqo
frequently with established calendar
rules is much to bo deprecated; he sug
gests, therefore, to abide by tho Qreg
orlan rule until the year 3200 and drop
a leap year In that year and every suc
ceeding multiple of 3200 (C400. OftOO.
etc.), which would be leap years
according to Gregorian rule. Strictly
speaking, every Interval of 123 ycara
should contain 31 bissextile leap years,
Instead of the 32 which It would by ta
Jullun rule, making every fourth vear
a leap year. Now, 25 times 128 amount?
to 3.200, which number of years should
therefore contain 25 fewer leap yeurs
than they would by tho Julian rulo; J. .,
775 instead of 800. The Gregorian ruin
puts 37 leap years In 400 years (three
fewer than tho Julian), and therefore
77G In 3,200 years, which is one too
many. Tho suggestion, then, appears
to be a good one. but It obviously will
not bo poslsblo for this generation tor
many future generations) to decide up
on Its adoption. For tho present ve
will condole with thoee who thall ba
born on the 29th of February ne:.t on
their having no birthday for sigbt
years, as thero will be no other POth'ot
February until 1904. except la Russia,

Damage by lightning Is unmistakably
Increasing, according to tbo director pf
the statistical office of Berlin. Various
causes are assigned, such as tho em
ployment of electricity lp various In
dustries, tho continual cbnnge of form
of the earth's surface by deforestation,
drainage, etc., and the Impurities in
troduced Into tho atmosphere by tba
growing consumption of coal. Profes
sor Von Bezold some tlmo ago showed
that for Bavaria the fires due to light
ning Increased from a yearly avetage
of thirty-two in 1833 to 1S43 to ono hun
dred and thirty-two In 18S0 to 1882;
while the number of persons Btruck by
lightning and thoBe killed ros from
one hundred and thirty-four aud seventy-threes
lospectlvely in 1S55 to one
hundred and eighty-six and one hun
