The saddest awiniaJ in all CcntraJ Pork moniiffuvic, «-t New York, is the young- leopard. Ho hod S'/ y iiu'bes of Ills tail nrapiuated last vrcek, and iioiv he lies 0:1 his back groaning, his scant tail as high up ns it will go, and liis head stretched out so Jar that the luiiv on the chin and throat .stands up, showing the white skin beneath. A week tigo, says the New York Sun, this leopard'had « tail that would h;ive bei-.u the pride of o wild leopard in the jungles . of Africa. The old . leopnrd sei'ins to realize, his ndvanage over the youngster, and so all day long- he pnoea up and down, lightly swaying; his black brush with a swish that makes the young- one sad. Ons flny, when the young leopard was lying in the outside CSIJTC busking in the sun, its beautiful, slender tail waving a little now find then, a little fly, of unknown spccie-s came flying-along 1 with a bu/.x. Unnoticed by any one, it alighted among the long, black hairs on the end of the young loopnrd's tail. Suddenly the leopard leaped to his feet with a catlike grimt aild snarl, and grabbed at the bushy end of thetuil with its teeth. Mr. Murphy, one of the. keeper:-;, sew The crumpled liody of the fly fall to the floor of the cage. The leopard grew restless, nnd it treated the end of its tail with vigor and harshness. Before the arrival of the fly the leopard had w;;sht>d its sides, paws, neck, body and tail with the utmost cure. After the fly was killed the bi-ute seemed to forget its former tidiness, !iml instead of washiug itaelf nil over, it used its tfi'th constantly ou the end of its tail. The bltiek hairs curne out at first one by one, and then in little tufts. T^ast week the tail had got into R sad condition. The hair was gone and the sldn was torn, yet the leoi.nrd still bit its tail snvage-ly 1 . Meantime the 'keepers had been thinking. The more they thought the more they worried, for the young leopard is a favorite with them and the visitors. Mattpre caroe to a crisis day before yesterday. The quiet leopard had become a "g ruwtill 8. 8 Towli ' D S' nuisancBR It disturbed the peace of its relatives THE OPERATION, and the other creatures. Something had to be done. Director Smith looked on while tho Central parlc veterinary , surgeons, Coates and Huldekoper, did the work. A man took a rope, made a sllpnoose in It, and then went before a looking glass to adjust his features. There have been several operations in the-Central park menagerie, and It.has been learned that the m.in who lassoes the. subject must net and appear ns if nothing, unusual was going to happen. The lasso noose was thrown over the leopard's head, whereupon the beast turned a soraer sault, kicked out a well-taloned claw, nnd the next instant was over on the other side of the cage lashing its sore tail. One swing hit. the end of the tail against the side of the cage, and the leopard doubled up to bite it. Quickly the lasso was coiled and the leopa.rd found a rope-about it's neck'and one paw. Tlie next, moment the leopard was ly.ing against the bars of- Uur cage working' three logs,.its tail, and three-fourths oi! its body vigorously. Other nooses.wern. brought- into -use, and all four legs were made fast. Tlien the leopard roared and squealed and-howled.-' --•••:"•_• The operation-was done quickly. The leopard, as: the-tail was cut, Bowled- wofully, its voice dying away in amoan as tb'e severed piece fell to the floor. A . ... jjPZtsCK f .&&~'™-*r--i''> . • little piece was cut out of the hide that had been peeled down, a.nd was fitted nicely over the end. A little saJve was applied,-the ropes were loosed, and the. men jumped back. The leopard rose slowly to its feet and sought the far side of the .cage, its head hanging down. Then it licked its tail as mildly as before the fly came. The (ail is healing finely, but t.he young leopard lies on its side or back, clenching its teeth and parting it» lips. Mr. Murphy says that, it is mourning for the lost tail. THE BICYCLE FEVER. It H»» Attacked » Ponn«jlvani» C»t la • Hopel«»« Fuflhlon.

In the evening, when tho boys start out on their spins, one of them will place tins ca.t upon his slioulder, aJid there Tom will sit through the -entire journey, if permitted to do so. The. cat never falls from ite pere-h. Sometimes it is partia.lly dislodged, by the boys in mounting or by n. sudden. turn or bump in the road, but its claws ere ever ready to catch a new hold. When the cat sees on« of the young- fiters starting out for a rkl-e it runs of ter Mm, and if he docs not offer bo take it, up Tom rubs against his legs and "meows" in a very supplicating manner to be taken along. The cat is about a year old, and has been. a. victim of the bicycle fever for several months. FLAG. 'Chinese Laundr.rinan Rnn» Up a Dnlqaa Political Banner.

Be Kmploycd in tho Uwerul Art», Particularly In Oniirrylui; and Tunuiil Work. Guns which can shoot high explosives •without bursting the g' lul itself are in 'demand by every uatiou of any standing whatever. Govcruineuts have spent millions of dollars experimenting with guns and armor, and a considerable portion of tliis money has gone toward •building 1 guns for throwing torpedoes and shells containing- from l!00 to 000 pounds of dynamite or some equally high explosive It has been found that compressed air is the safest and best agent for expelling the shell. The Scientific American in a recent issue describes a pneumatic gun which it believes has solved the problem. This is the Dudley gun. and it is u gun and compressed-air plant in itself. It certainly is a roost ingenious arrangement, and its use o£ gunpowder for the purpose of compressing air opons up possibilities in the application of the principle which will be apparent to any skilled mechanic. The Dudley gun might be called a long tube, bent upon itself so as to show three tubes side by side. These tubes lie parallel to each other. The long central tube is the firing tube, and weighs 2,"0 pounds, in a four-inch gun. The two side tubes might be called the air-compressor, for it is in them that the air is compressed to 850 pounds to the square inch. At the forward end of the gun, the two outside tubes are connected by ( an air passage. The rear end of one of the tubes is connected by a similar passage to the central or firing tube, and the rear end of the other side-tube is fitted wifli a suitable breech mechanism to receive the powder cartridge. A glance at the diagram will show the passage of the air when the powder is ignited. The central or firing tube has a breech mechanism similar to a breech-loading rifle. In this the projectile with its load of high explosive is placed. Then the breech piece is locked, the powder cartridge is placed in the side tube, and its breech is locked. The powder is ignited, and the air in the tubes is compressed by the gen- OIAGOT15UOWING PRINCIPLE DUDLEY PNEUMATIC GUN. crate gases. The'force oJ! the exj^losion, cushioned by the two columns of air which :ive between the powder cartridge and the projectile, acts upon the projectile. The shell leaves the gun •witii little noise of explosion and no smoke whatever. The rrcoil of the gun is slight, and springs are provided for tnldng- it up. The projectiles used iu the £«a nre 'brass cylinders with pointed ends. The Juse ia>attached >to the front end andl from the rear end of the shell extend .^anes or rings to insure rotation. The entire shell is 52 inches long, and when fully charged weighs 32 pounds. In the main body of the shell, which, is the brass cylinder, tho dynamite or nitroglynerin is placed. In theforward end of the charge is placed a. charge of gnu cotton, and in the center of the g-un cotton is a case containing fulminating 1 mercury. An ingenious arrangement in the shell ic the fuse which explodes the charge tf dynamite. It is arranged to operate l-.y inertia or by direct impact. Jf the shell strikes the water the inertia operates the ignition. A steel ball within the cap is driven forward when the motion'of the shell is retarded, and by striking causes the ifetoriatiou of one or more of three per-, cusslon caps, I • •• The tiibe.of slow-burning powder is thus.ignited.; 'this communicates with the tulminatiiig mercury, which'in turn 't-xplo'des the gun cotton, and thus the main charge of high explosive is exploded, • . If tie shell strikes armor, the head js- crushed jn, and this drives the pins Against percussion caps, which start the series of explosions that at last fird the main charge. In order that the steel ball may be forced against the percussion caps prematurely, a little windmill is placed in front o£ the shell. This windmill is' centered on, a little shaft which, is screwed into the steel ball. . . . The windmill is inclosed in a recess, fro'm wh'ich it escapes'when the shell leaves the :gu'ri, ; and at once it begins revolving.-'and unscrews;,ihe;shaftfrom, ithe steel ball. ..By the .time the shell has .traveled a few hundred feet, the steel 'ball is free to move when the .shell, strikes the'.water/ . ';'.' • It .Is" believed that'the principtf of compressing air 1 by the explosWn of cunpowder, as-.rt ia doneiin the Dudley r-un, can be employed in. the usefu-1 arts,, ijarticularly in. quarrying and..tunnel., work, where air drills are remote from the main pipe of the air compressor plant. .•'-.'• THE C-REiT SCUTE AKERKM BiLSffl! ...OL-RCS... in 2 minutes.
