Escapes of animals from their cages
Id zoological gardens taud menageries
are fortunately rare When they tlo
occur the work of recapture Is set
about in a businesslike fashion and
the prison breaker Is generally cap
tured before anything is known out
In tho nnrlodlonl Issued 1v tlio
Strain departed Friday for Dea Moines aeraent of thQ uresiau garden an
and other points in Iowa for a visit amusing story Is told of an incident of
this kind Some years ago on n fine
autumn morning just after the gates
were opened thero was n loud knock
ing at the pay window andin reply to
the inquiry of the money taker wbo
presented himself a man In a state of
great excitement said that as be wa
walking on the Oder bank be bad seen
through the palisading a large bear
loose in the grounds Greatly obliged
to you sir was the reply We know
that already that bear goes for a walk
every morning and returns to its cage
before the visitors come In
The man went away quite satisfied
The official who knew the real state of
the case at once ordered the gates to
bo closed and the director was at once
informed that the bear was loose It
was a serious matter for the bear bad
killed the keeper in a raveling menag
erie and for that reason was sold to
the zoological garden Moreover vi
a mate had been put in with hni - ie
soon fell a victim to bis bad ten i
While the authorities were considering
the best steps to take to recapture the
bear for they were loath to shoot such
a fine animal the keeper whose negli
gence in leaving a door unfastened bad
caused the trouble made bis appear
ance nis only reply to the reproaches
of the director for allowing the bear to
escape was Well we shall have to
get him in again1 t
lie went off to the storeroom filled
bis apron with carrots and bread and
then sought the bear When he saw
the animal be called out to attract its
attention and by throwing down food
enticed it to the back of the bear dens
Here the man entered through a small j
door by which new arrivals were put
into the cages He was closely follow
ed by the bear but reached the middle
of the cage before it bad scrambled
through the small opening Then be
dropped on the floor the rest of the
food he had in bis apron and made his
way out of the cage which was at
once securely fastened in front and at
the rear Thus the incident which
might have bad serious consequences
ended happily for those on whom the
responsibility rested Loudon Field
Warned In a Dream
On the occasion of a fatal accident
to a lift in a Paris hotel some years
ago a lady who was just going up
in it started back saying Ob there
is that dreadful man again and
tried to induce her husband to come
off it too but be refused and was
among the killed The dreadful man
to whom she referred she bad seen in
a dream which the niece of the friend
wbo told me tho story had heard her
relate a day or two before the acci
dent It was of a funeral drawn up
at her door so pompous as to produce
a great impression on her presided
over by a big dark man in a strange
sombrero hat This man she saw or
believed she saw in the lift and the
coincidence terrified her from going
up in it London Notes and Queries

When the Big Monkey Got Himself
Mixed Up With Hot Pitch and Gun
Cotton and Took a Trip Aloft
We were making passage from Nor
folk Vu to Lisbon Portugal in the
United States steamship Alliance It
was shortly after 4 oclock I had just
gone to mj room for a pipeful of to
bacco when the sailmaker came to my
door with a scared face Got any wa
ter in your room Mr Du Bois he
Yes heres a pailful
For Gods sake give it to me quick
The sail rooms afire but dont say
anything Ill have it out in a min
I handed him the pail of water but
was not going to take any chances of
a fire on a man-of-war with fifteen
tons of powder not six feet away so
I ran to the ships bell and rang the
fire alarm as furiously as I could In
less time than it takes you to read this
hand grenades were being thrown and
water was pouring into the now sti
fling mass of burning canvas Men
jumped in among the great bundles of
furled sails and passed them out and
when one could not endure the smoke
any longer another look his place At
last the danger was over and I began
to look around and take stock of the
I had often wondered what I would
do in case of a fire on the ship I
would save ray watch A watch Is
never used at sea so it hung from a
hook over my desk I would be sure
to take along my best girls picture
and there were a few other little be
longings which must not be parted
with Well when the thing was over
what had I gathered together Not
my watch not my best girls picture
not anything that I had thought I
would but I had filled my pockets
with extract of beef and nothing else
Dumb instinct not a thought of any
thing but of something good to eat In
dire extremity
How did the fire start The sail
maker whose duty it is to keep the
sails in good order is privileged to go
to the sail room at any time but be is
supposed to always carry a peculiar
lantern consisting of a common candle
set in a globe of horn sufficiently
opaque to give enough light for his
needs there The candle does away
with any danger from oil that might
be spilled and catch fire and the globe
being of horn instead of glass pre
cludes a possibility of breakage Thi
time the sailmaker desiring a little
more light had taken out the candle
It bad dropped from his fingers away
down into the bight of a furled sail
and the cloth had caught fire There
was a terrible mess of burned and
smoky sails in there and they were
all hauled up on deck and spread out
in the sun to dry and to find out just
what the damage was In the bottom
of the room on the floor one of the
men found the stump of candle and
put it in his pocket The sailmaker
was a favorite on board and the offi
cers never found out how the fire
started They thought they knew
The captain broke the sailmaker
that is reduced him to the decks But
he couldnt prove anything So after
a week or so he restored him to his old
We came near having another fire
once and while it might have been
very serious it was really funny
We bad several hundred pounds of
gun cotton on boa d and fearing that
it might have gathered dampness the
gunners gang got up the cases from
the magazine pulled it all out and
spread it on the warm decks far aft in
the sun to dry Away forward the
boatswains mate and his gang were
with tar pots and ropes putting
some of their stuff in order
We had on board a mascot in the
shape of a monkey one of the largest
I have ever seen He would stand
quite three feet high and ho was the
very Old Nick for mischief ne was a
great nuisance that monkey and must
always be doing what be saw any of
the men doins
Well Mr Monkey saw the men with
tli warm tar and nothing would do
but he must have a hand in the job
literally so he ran forward and dipped
his bands into the pot and in a minute
was all besmeared with the sticky
stuff then he bolted aft as fast as he
could scamper aud rolled in the gun
cotton trot himself well covered with
it and ran aloft into the riggimr Sail
ors have a saying The devil to pay
and r o pitch hot but the pitch wa5
hot tlis time and tho condition wn
actuary appalling Some of the men
ran a t him but it was imposibl to
catch Mm He was too shrewd for
that The gunners gang gathered up
that gtii cotton as men never did so
fast in their lives before and put it
back into the cans for had that fool
monkey dropped from aloft into it he
would have blown the ship to king
dom come They got it out of the way
without disaster but for several hours
that creature sat up there nicking gun
cottnn from himself and throwing it
overboard As 1 said the episode
would have been comical had it not
been fraught with so much danger It
might have been another sea mys
tery but it was not Stanley Du Bois

Ouenching a Blaze In a Humy On made use of a bear spear as my
RnarH n War Vnecol i on of attack writes Count Eric von
j Rosen and I may take this
t niry to maintain that the use of a
PRANK OF A TRICKY MASCOT1 BPear entflIls no greater cruelty than
j any other mode of attack and that
every hunter should be armed with
Deck one in reserve since these powerful
beasts have a vitality that triumphs
over a stray bullet or more unless
lodged In a vital region and when
wounded their retaliation Is redoubta
ble and easily fatal In Karelia Fin
land the bear Is jet regarded as a
noxious horror The great black haired
slagbjorn or killing bear Is still ram
pant there and a couple of winters
back I was able to wreak justifiable
vengeance on some beasts that had
killed over a score of cows and nine
horses News had been brought me
that some of these rascals were hiber
nating on a small marsh bound island
We found no difficulty in locatiug
their lair and I took up my post at
the entrance to it armed only with my
spear I may explain that a bear spear
consists of an ash staff some two
yards long and about a couple of
inches in diameter There is a blade
of steel about twelve inches in length
and the shaft is copper cased as a pre
vention against the teeth of bruin As
soon as my gentleman appeared I tried
to stick him in the throat but be par
ried adroitly and I missed I made
another lunge and succeeded in
ing my spear point through his breast
He started roaring furiously and
snapped at my copper cased staff then
made an attempt to strike at my arm
with his huge fore paw so that I
might drop my weapon The powerful
brute hung on to my spear at the one
end while I as grimly held on at the
other end His bites went through the
copper plate and he started shredding
the wood beneath Strenuously I
checked his further advances and
gradually for his wounds began to
tell his resistance weakened and he
dropped at last over the aperture of
bis den
I pulled out the spear but so much
strength still remained in him that he
seized the blade and bit It with a
force that left deep indentations In the
steel My companion then finished
him off with his own weapon This
struggle from start to finish covered
five minutes
Babies as Well as Windows Used to
Help Swell the Revenues
In 1G93 a tax of 2 shillings had to be
paid by the parents of every little
stranger born in England except by
people in receipt of alms Curiously
enough a measure proposing a tax on
babies was introduced some time ago
in the local parliament of the German
princedom of Iteuss by which it was
proposed that the parents or mother
when registering the birth of a child
should in each case contribute a sum
amounting to 10 cents
Some time ago a good deal of merri
ment was aroused by a measure in
troduced in the legislature of New
Jersey by which it was proposed to
tax beards but even this is not an
original proposal Queen Elizabeth put
a tax on every beard of a fortnights
growth while a couple of centuries
ago Peter the Great insisted that all
nobles who wore beards should pay
100 rubles for the privilege
As chancellor of the English ex
chequer Pitt rendered himself very un
popular by the extraordinary means
to which he resorted in order to im
prove the state of the countrys ex
chequer lie It was who first intro
duced the Income tax and he also
levied a tax upon horses which caused
a certain farmer to use a cow for the
purpose of riding to and from market
Even more dissatisfaction however
was caused by Pitts increase of the
window tax first imposed in the year
that the tax on babies was enforced
This window tax caused property own
ers to wall up as many windows as
possible in order to reduce the amount
for which they were liable Philadel

Buddhist Ceremonies
Some Buddhist ceremonies present a
striking analogy to certain Christian
rites An old missionary says The
very titles of their intercessions such
as goddess of mercy holy mother
queen of heaven with an image of
the virgin having a child in her arms
holding a crescent are all such strik
ing coincidences that the Catholic mis
sionaries were greatly stumbled at the
resemblances between Chinese wor
ship and their own when they came
over to convert the natives to Chris
