Lion Had The Toothache.
“King Sampson,” the famous lion
with the John Robinson Shows, has
quite a history. He is a real African
lion, and one of the few lions on
exhibition that was actually born in
the jungle and instead of being se
cured while a cub, was captured when
almost full grown, after a desperate
battle with native hunters. There is
something of the lordly freedom of
the wild beasts in King Sampson’s
walk and manner, while his great size
and beauty of his head and mane
makes him particularly interesting to
the students and artists and he has
had enough photographs taken of him
by sight-seers to paper the biggest
house in town.
“Would he hurt anybody?” inquire
an amateur zoological student, with
one foot in the air ready to run. “Oh,
1 don’t know. That depends. Maybe
it wouldn't be a good thing for a
stranger to go into his cage. He
would likely resent that as an in
trusion on his privacy,” replied the
keeper. “But he would never make '
a row if I was to go to sleep in his
den. The only time I ever had any
trouble with Sampson was last season
on the road. One day I noticed he
had suddenly developed a cranky
disposition. He never resentted iny
going into his cage,so I was at a loss
whatt to do, so I called the doc
tor with the show.
He will be seen at the John Rob
inson Shows. All the animal.) are
kept in prime condition. The date
is Thursday. June 1st at Falls City,
“Why, he has a slight toothache,”
said the doctor, after examining him.
“You would naturally think the King
wou'd object to ayone fooling around
his jaws, but he .seemed to know
the doctor was there to help him, so
after the medicine man cleared out
the cavity in one big tooth and spray
ed a little antisepttic solution into
it and plugged up tin1 hole wltth a
fist full of amalgum, he never whim
pered and kept his mouth wide open
without the slightest urging. The
next day he was all right, and has
never had an ache since, so far as I
have been able to discover.”
In every community there is enough money in hiding
to start a respectable bank.
This money is not only liable to be lost by theft or
tire, but it is placed where it does not bring in any in
come to the holder; neither is it of use to the public.
Deposit this “dead" money with us. Then it will get
into circulation and be of some benefit to yourself
and also to the community.
The more money there is in circulation, the cheaper
the rate of interest; the easier it is to borrow, and
the more prosperous the general business conditions.
