nobility of man's devotion touches the sym
pathetic chords of every human heart
There are no Impossible characters to mar
the realism of the story; they are of the
type of men and women that are familiar
to us in our every day Uvea. The scenes

The' "Living Animals of the World,"
which Is so packed full of anecdote and
lively descriptions of strange, as well as
familiar animals, gives an interesting ac
count of the terrible man-eating Hons of
"When Hons grow old they are always
liable to become man-eaters. Finding their
strength falling them, and being no longer
able to hunt and pull down large antelopes
or sebras, tbey are driven by hunger to
killing small animals, such as porcupines,
and even tortoises, or they may visit a
native village and catch a goat or kill a
child or woman going for water; and find
ing a human being a very easy animal to
catch and kill, an old Hon which has once
tasted human flesh will in all probability
continue to be a man-eater until he Is
killed. On this subject. In his 'Missionary
Travels,' Dr. Livingston says: 'Man-eater
Is Invariably an old lion; and when he over
comes his fear of man so far as to come to
villages for goats, the people remark, 'His
teeth ars worn; he will soon kill men.'
They at once acknowledge the necessity of
Instant action, and turn out to kill him.'
It Is the promptness with which measures
are taken by tbs greater part of the natives
of Southern Africa to put an end to any
Hon which may take to eating men that
preventa these animals as a rule from be
coming tbe formidable pests, which man-
eating tigers appear to be In parts of India.
But man-eating Hons In Africa are not
Invariably old animals. One which killed
thirty-seven hciaa beings In 117. on the
Majlll River, to ths northwest of the Vic
torla Falls of the Zambesi, was, when at
last he was killed, found to be an animal
In tbe prime of life; whilst the celebrated
man-eaters of tbe Tsavo River, In East
Africa, were also apparently strong, healthy
aalmals. Thess two man-eating Hons
caused such consternation amongst the In
dia workmen on the Uganda Railway that
the work of construction was considerably
retarded, the helpless coolies refusing to
remain any longer In a country where they
were liable to be eaten oa any night by a
man-eating Hon. Both these Hons were at
last shot by ons of ths engineers on ths
railway (Mr. J. H. Patterson), but not
before tbey bad killed and devoured twenty
eight Indian coolies, and an unknown num
ber of native Africans."
