How the lilggeit Tiger In Jndlit Wui CBUKllt—A N«iv Wrinkle In the Art of Tiger Hunting. ICCrYIUGUT, 189-11 I sec that William 1C. Vandcrbuilt, with his bonny yacht Valiant, has arrived a f Calcutta and is the guest of my young friend, the rajah of India. Tho press dispatches further state that the m:ilo portion of the Valiant's passengers, consisting of Ogden Goelet, Gouvcrneur Morris, Robert Osgood and other New York swells, will go hunting- for the festive tiger among the islands of the Delta of the Gungen, whilo tho ladies will remain at Calcutta and enjoy the hospitality of the native princesses. Tho hunt, of course, will be conducted under the personal direction of the rajah, who will thus endeavor to repay Mr. Vanderbilt, in a BOLDLT CAHBVnfO OFF OKE OF TUB MEX. measure, for tho many social courtesies extended to him on the occasion of his recent visit to tho United States. Well, I can promise Mr. Vanderbilt and his party rare fun if they enter the spirit of the'game and bo "in at the death." Tiger hunting is indeed a royal sport. For twenty years I was engaged in tho pleasing pursuit of capturing 1 lions, i tigers, jackals, hyenas, elephants and other wild animals for tha late P. T. Barnum, and I can truthfully assert that tiger hunting is the grandest sport of all. I had one night's experience in the jungle that I will never forget. It was while hunting for a monster tiger •which was the terror of the domain over which, like the British lion, he had established a sort, of self-constituted suzerainty. He had killed no le&s than sixty natives of a village situated on the left bank of the Punjab river, a tributary of the great Indus; about three hundred miles east of Atak, the sceno of Alexander the viciously at the fastening of the lia, which he succeeds in opening and is caught very much after the manner of a rat in a miniature concern. The best way to capture a tiger, in my humble opinion, is that employed by llagenbeck, myself and other experienced hunters. It is exceedingly simple and efl'eetive. The tiger, being the most carnivorous of carnivorous animals, cannot live f:ir from water. Ho must infest n jungle uuar a river, stream or creek. There ho goes every night to satiate himself with water. Ilenco his track can be easily found. Here is the trick to catoli him: Wfi 1 a pit about twenty feet wide, twenty feet deep and twenty feet long. Stretch across that bamboo sticks, interwoven in every way, and over these sprinkle dead leaves, so as to look like natural ground. Then from each side of the pit have stout woode staves project to a point immediately above the center of the pit, so as tc form a perfect cone. From the apex of tho cone have a goat or sheep suspended by a rope. The bleating of the victim is sure to bring the tiger to the scene of operations, and he quicfrly springs upon his prey. The staves give way before his weight and he falls into the pit. For hours he will strivu to jump out of the pit, but, of course, he cannot. When he has lashed himself into an impotent rage and lies weak and helpless in the bottom of the pit, push down a small cage just enough to cover him, of tough bamboo sticks, with only three sides covered. Then the fourth can be easily built under him by digging into the ground and weaving sticks of different grades of thickness from side to side. When this is done the cage can be lifted up and brought to the nearest station, where the tijfer can be transferred to an iron eaga and then shipped away. But to get back to my tiger. I had "located" Jupiter and prepared at least ten different traps for him, the best I ever saw made, but he was the "flyest" tiger I ever saw or heard of, and tantalizingly refused to walk into any of them. lie would walk around each of them carefully, sniff the air suspiciously, glare at the bleating lamb and then tro* off, even though he must have been hungry many a time. We could often haye killed him, but that was not our game. We had hunted for him three weeks and were well-nigh discouraged. We had, too, drawn our lines about him and shut him off from all sorts of prey, yet he would not nibble at our bait. One night, to our surprise, he turned the tables and hunted us. We were all completely fagged out by our exertions and dozed after supper within the circle of fire which we had built to keep out savage beasts and drive away the equally savage insects with which that, country is infested. A dozen It was as clear a case of suicide as ever a human being committed. For the first time since I was a boy I sat down ami cried. All ol the compa- , ny, too, felt as bad as I did. As lor - Uarnum—well, he felt pretty blue, too. lie wanted that tiger in tho worst way. J. 1?. UAYI.AHD. THE~ SUICIDE TREE. THK BKD-HOT IBOM P«BC»D HM BBXIW. Great's famous pa«M*e. The nfttltes j had become thoroughly panic stricken and left that section of the country In | a body. Indeed, the pretty little ham- j let when I got there, resembled Goldsmith's "deserted village." Not a single ox, buffalo, or even a sheep, was in sight. Troops of British soldiers from 'Taxila and other garrison towns hunted for weeks for his striped majesty, but in vain. Jupiter, as this king of beasts was appropriately termed by Capt. Helyars, of the Eleventh light dragoons, was too cunning for them all. He avoided all snares set for him, ftnd kept far away from the reach of either the poisoned arrows of the natives or the rifles of the whites. Yet, Jupiter kept up his depredations with marked success. Bosicles the sixty natives mentioned, ho had taken off innumerable cattle. The culminating atrocity was reached when his tifjership pounced upon an unfortunate soldier one night and ran away with his prey before the very eyes of his comrades, without even a volley being fired, so quickly was the deed done. The soldier was one of a hunting party which were out four nights looking for Jupiter, and it was his turn to do guard duty. The poor fellow was half dead with exhaustion and nodded when he should have been wide awake, and met on untoward fate. I arrived at Atak about this time and heard of the exploits of Jupiter, which were indeed the talk of that entire section. I determined to catch that tiger, cost what it would. I had with me three true and tried white men, the best tiger hunters that ever invaded a jungle, and one hundred and twenty natives, whom 1 had secured •with great difficulty, so far-reaching was the terror that Jupiter had Inspired. 1 meant to take him alive, too, aud have Barnum exhibit the greatest tiger ever seen either in ancient or modern tlmen. That, yon may surmise, would Iw no easy undertaking. There is .only'one way to take.the tiger alive and uninjured.and that is by means of the trap: Of these there are two kinds— the box trap, which the Chinese nw, an one side of which there i» a mirror. The tlyer it attracted by hiM own uhotoirraph, and tugiawar natives and one ol my wmi* men were on guard. Suddenly there was a rushing sound like that of » whirlwind, and in dashed Jupiter over the flre line — something I never knew the wildest kind of wild animals do before—and quicker than you could say Jack Eobin'son he had one of my natives in his teeth and bore him off. into the deepest recesses of the jungle. The trick was done so suddenly that none of us had a chance to pull a trigger if we wanted to. However, we hunted him for fair in turn now. This time we had luck, but not until a further calamity occurred. We beat every bush for miles around as big as n tiger's body, and by daybreak had forced Jupiter to change his base a dov-en times. Finally we drove him along a pathway in which was one of our innumerable traps. By good or bad .luck several of my natives happened to be in that path when Jupiter came tearing along. They broke in different directions, but two, whose abject fear caused them to forget the lay of the land, ran right ahead towards the trap. They reached it at exactly the same moment that Jupiter did, and all three went down together. When we arrived and looked into the pit Jupiter had already dismembered the. unfortunate men and was still tearing away fiercely at their fragments. Now, here is the oddest part of the story. We eaged Jupiter after an awful 'lot of trouble and bore him away in triumph to Atak. When we tried to drive him from the. bamboo .cage to a solid iron one for. shipment to America lie fought with all the courage and despair that might be expected from a human hero. He had the intelligence almost of a human being, and I am certain that he realized that he was to be taken away forever from the land of the jungle. It was in vain that we prodded him with red-hot rods of iron Into the ,iron.cage he would not go. Suddenly, as if acting.by inspiration, Jupiter, with head erect, rushed right lip" against Tom Waltori's red-hot rod and then sank with a sort 5 of sob to the floor.

A» 1 Uw, I Cincinnati II»« n Glmit, Beech of Durk and MynterlouH Kcpntc. liurnet woods is one of the most frequented parks in Cincinnati. Us beautiful driveways nnd natural forests make it a very desirable place to spend tlie lonp, hot days of summer, and almost every hourof the day some iray- ly-uttired pleasnre-seukers drive up the shaded avenues or across the wide lawns. The hills and deep ravines arc ideal spots for love scenes and it is here the lovers come to lisp sweetly the poems, to clasp passionately the soft white hands and do a great many other things'thnt go toward making up a first-class courtship. Some time ago a couple tnat were of this turn of mind locked arms after they had fumbled off the Vine street car and ventured timidly into the park. They tried the shades of quite a number of favored places, but none seemed to strike their fancy until they had crossed the deep ravine and had nestled down at the foot of a plant beech that stands on the west slope of the park, very near the north entrance. Just above are several trees that interlock their towering branches, while below are a number of little elms that screen from the public gaze and gestures that are indispensible to a Vine street courtship. After that day their visits became frequent, until at last they ended the matter by getting married. All went lovely for a month or so, and then rougli sailing set in, as is usual in such cases, and eurly separation followed. Shortly afterward the park policeman was surprised to see the jrentleman come into the park alone and without much hesitation walk over to the old courting-place, sit down by the old tree, and drawing a pistol from his pocket, deliberately shoot himself through the heart, A great concourse of people was attracted to the place, each endeavoring to catch a glimpse of the unfortunate suicide's face as the officers carried him to the patrol wagon at the foot of the hill. For a long time afterward the old men and little boys who were regular visitors to the park pointed out the place to strangers, until at last it became generally known as the suicides' tree. There have been many other suicides in the park, and this spot scorns to be the favorite, and every visitor with a spark of sadness in his face is closely watched by the officers if he begins edping toward this tree. Recently a reporter was passing through the park when he heard a street gamin call to his playmates: "Dar goesersuicider." On looking around he saw an old, friendless-looking fellow climbing- up toward the tree, while the boys betran immediately to scramble for a good, position to witness the act. The old gentleman carefully seated himself, h.nd after leaning- his cane up against the tree began digging into his deepspockets. At last he seemed to have fully made up his mind, so drawing his hand quickly from his pocket, he lifted something toward his face. There was a bright flash of flre and two of the five boys fell down with mental fright, while the other three staggered in dizE.y circles, looking for tbe streams of blood and listening for the report of the gun. But it never came. At last it dawned upon the boys that they had been taken in; and the leader of the young brigands, after shoving his hands deep in his pockets and casting a look around of extreme disgust, said to his playmates: "Come on, cullies; der old duffer is jist er smokin'."—Cincinnati Commercial Gazette. Worlds Champion, A ROYAL BEGGAR. letters for Lokni Written by Klo* Charlei II. One of the moat remarkable finds made by the Historical Manuscripts commission among the family papers of the duke of Portland at Welbeck abbey is a series of letters from King Charles II., mostly written from St. Germains in 1049, to various persons whoso mimes are written in cipher, the key to which has not been discovered. They were fount! folded and packed together in a little leather box, and by their appearance it would seem that they had been sent over for delivery, but had never been used. As the commissioners observe, they "are mostly of a kind to which' the adherents of the Stuarts must have been accustomed, and the promises contained in which were not always completely performed/' In brief, they present the youn.r prince in the character of ii begging-letter writer on a rather extensive scale. Some thirty correspondents seem to have been addressed by him in the month of August of that year alone. The following will serve as a sample: "1«59, August 31, St. Germains.— I have had so good testimony of your affection to- the king, my dear father of blessed memory, that I desire you on this occasion to lend me five hundred pounds, whereof I promise you on my royal word very faithful repayment I .have troubled few of my friends in this kind." Of this missive five copies have been found, all bearing the royal signature and seal, and therefore presumptively intended for different persons.—London Daily News: • •"Crftinatioa la France.
