The Unknowns claimed that  the goal was void, as they stopped  play upon the whistle. The referee  held that the umpire had no right  to sound, as there was no foul, and  the umpire explained that he blew  to s'op play,'owing to the referee's  failure to sound when putting the  ball into play.

"He's yonder, in the hutch under the  'bulkhead; snug in his straw, aud making the best o't���������a" lesson to mail* cou-  titnivy Christians."  I followed 'the indication, and there  ��������� was Roy lying at ease in his rude ken-  "nel;  his .beautiful  head  rested  on  his  ���������two fore paws, and he looked perfectly  ���������contented and happy. At my approach  '.he barely lifted his large, sleepy eyes,  'but there was something like a wink  'of recognition in them, accompanied by  .a rustle in the straw from the wagging  -of his ponderous tail.  This complete change in his demean-  ������������������or was a pleasant surprise. I did not  seek to explain it to myself, but speaking a^ few words of encouragement.  I  ��������� left him. More pressing matters called  vine aft. The steamer was already be-  .yond the shelter of the land, and the  ���������.sea had risen under a fast freshening  summer gale.  I  was not  sorry  to get back to  my  '���������berth, and soon had no further concern  with  mundane allaii-.    or the  passage  -of time.    My only recollections of the  ������������������next    three    days    are      a    confused  -.memory.of acute discomfort.'' We were  sill   wretchedly   ill���������"mother.'-poor dear!  'Fanshawe.  of course, and  I. although  hitherto I had liked the sea.  ���������My own collapse was. no doubt, the  /reaction from the keen anxieties that  ftiad oppressed me before 'departure,  "i'hey were as keen as ever now; but  ���������when 1 roused myself from tlie stupor  ���������of seasickness, and ��������� crawled up on  ���������deck to breathe the'magnificent ozoniz-  ���������erf air of the Atlantic. I felt revived  --and more tit to face them.  Some  one   helped   me   to    my   deck  -chair.    It was my friend Mr. Rossiter.  Some one had placed it in a sheltered  ���������-corner���������Mr.   Rossiter.     Some   one  got  ���������wraps for me, and a novel, and a deck  ���������steward- with  a cup   of   invigorating  ifoeef tea; this same some one left me in  .peace,to recover health and strength���������  -always   Mr.   Rossiter.     I   blessed   the  -"fcindly. considerate chivalry of Ameri-  -can men.  Now, as I lounged there lazily. I be-  ;gan to look into things a little more  -closely, and to consider how far I had  ���������advanced matters or served the cause  "tiy this escapade of mine.  I had failed in the very first task I  ������md set myself, that of keeping a watch  upon the -conspirators. I had seen  nothing of them for three days. I  knew no more about tbem than when I  had come on board, and I had no clear  notion how I should act when I arrived  in New York, what would be best, or  what would come of anything I did.  Despair and . despondency seized me;  I felt utterly helpless, useless, and was  full of self reproach. Yet daylight was  nearer than I thought. I now saw Mr.  Rossiter approaching and leading Roy  by'his chain. *     ' <   ,    .  "Here's some one you maj be glad, to  see," he said, pleasantly. "I got leave  to give' him a short run."  "Your dog?   What a handsome creature!" said a lady seated by my side,  and. 'turning, I saw to my surprise it  was   the  Duchess  of Tierra   Sagrada.  Roy, who was a lump of conceit, perfectly understood the compliment.    It  was one of his well behaved days.   He  sat,there, solemn and self satisfied, giving a paw and doing all his little tricks  almost    without    asking,    while    the  duchess petted and made much of him  without the least protest ou his part.  ��������� Then with a quick motion of uot unnatural, curiosity   the'duchess  looked  at his collar.   It was no doubt a civil  way of'find ing out who I was, but the'  result was something of a shock to us  both.    For when  she started  back  In  surprise that had terror In it. I remembered that his collar still bore his-master's name and regiment, "Captain W.  A\ Wood. th, regiment."  "Who are you?    What does this"���������,  she began hurriedly,,but recovered her-'  self and said.'with'great self-control:  "You kuow a Captain Wood, then? We  have one on board - too.    I  wonder If  they .are'related.' You must allow me to  introduce you. He is traveling with us."  Before \ could answer a man stood  over us and a harsh voice called her by  name, but in a language I did not understand.     She  got   up -with   prompt  obedience, that I set down to anxiety to  tell her husband (of course It was tbe  duke) what she b.'ul discovered.   But as  they, walked away together he did all,  the talking, and  from tbe Inflection I  felt sure he was taking her'sharply to  task.1   '''���������-,* '  "Yes, he's rating her soundly," remarked Mr. Rossiter. "Reckon not  "many American women would stand  that' sort of talk from their husbands.  He's telling her she ought not to have  taken up with,' you���������that he had expressly ordered her to make no chance  acquaintances.' It's a queer game  about that dog."

It was so on- Jubilee day of '97,  when he rode pn horseback directly  behind his mother's carriage.*- 'Tha  'eyes ' of thousands filkd when'they  'saw her*��������� that sad, -serene little 'figure, above, whom hovered^thajjuisht^.  ness of so many, glories, tlvj shadow  'of so many sorrows.

He was on his way from a  command performance of dpora -at  Covent^ Gai'dcn'"' to-' Marlborough  House:/ The streets were'flooded with  light and you', could see him plainly  through, the glass' doors and sides of  his carriage. He was pale, and I'  swear his face, would have seemed  merely stupid had it not been so serene. The Hussars followed his carriage, instead1 of riding arounn it. I  have never seen a man in a position  that was in itself so abjectly helpless.  Only the' will to harm him was required to make his position perilous  in the last degree. Yet there was  in his eye a placid look of trustfulness and affection that stirred a kindly feeling in more than one republican heart. The wheels of. his car-  rixge all but brushtd our coats as  we gaped at him. He was dressed in  a scarlet uniform, and blazing with |  decorations. lie looked just what he  was���������a splendid, pleasing figure-head,1  serving an entirely and harmless and,-  in some respects a very useful purpose,      f  r\ ho tired, close-packed multitudes  iheercd him iyay inside the palace  gates and the glimpse of him had s0  restored the gala spirit of the long-  drawn-out, tinn;- day that everybody  scurried for the neighboring cafes to  drink his health.  This man, without whom the world  could have got on just as -well as it  has wiHi him, h -.s been the object of  iulfn-se loyalty and afiection for a  generation :-nd a half, because ho  has an intensely loyal and affecti-m-  .1.1 e nature.  He has loved to he loved, and he  has worked ou the principle that ihe  surest way to receive afiection 'is to  inspire it.  More, than any other public figure  of our time, ho bus been all things  to all men, more, than once so complaisant ly so as to bi ing repro&.ch  upon himself.  He has made it the business of his  life to cultivate the amenities, the  genial'superfluities, that help to mi-.ke  existence plcasanter, if not more pcir-  poss-ful.  He possesses social sagacity in its  perfection and unparalleled adaptability. He ccn contribute a sane  hint or a feasible plan ������o a family  conference in' which sit the thror.ed  heads of .Russia, England, .Denmark  and -Greece1, and he cap. say the-.ple-is-  ant, cheering word at a dinner, . of  London cab drivers.  Consider, in making your estimate  of him, the interesting fax*t every  one of. his multifarious occupations  has had to do with the non-essentials of life'. '  For a man who has been dilettante-student, traveler, horseman, administrator of social functions, amateur farmer, hunter, yachtsman and  connoisseur of pictures ��������� for such a  man to have at all impressed his  personality on his time is, marvellous.

school, he decided that be would confine" himself to criminal cases as offer-
;'  ing better pay and greater credit than

of the beginner.   An ample fortune en-
. 'abled him to decline cases which less

' ' He had already figured in one or two
trials of considerable importance, but
,,,-his  practice  was   not  large,  and, his
- principaloccupntion. consisted im wondering about the pretty girl in the of-,
j flee across,the court.    By a judicious
;' .' expenditure of tips among the elevator
" , boys, who in turn questioned the letter'

had acquired an Intense dislike'for the
' girls with' whom  he came in contact
'arid whose.-god was Mammon, not Cu-
/ , pid.    The little typewriter across the,
.' 'light shaft was of far greater'interest
to him, and- her,, apparent inaccesslbil-
[    ityy made him the more eager to form
her acquaintance.    Once* be met'Mas-
.- -sey in company with a business friend
', - aud" exultingly' told himself that this
".would at least-afford;hirn an entrance
to* the office.  'But even, this-hope-was-
:, dashed .to thet ground when in saying
\ goodby,' Massey expressed a desire to
. -tmeet him on returning from a business
trip" that would occupy several months.
He   had .about"'"given   up   all   hope

L   'rwbo formed his entire office,staff broke
*-in on bis solitude. **<*-     -*>,   ���"* *.

' *' "Tell  her." said his > employer,* "that
we don't take up damage suits." ^And
then .as the clerk turned to go he ac-
the motorman ' to %d ahead, and/ she
was thrown heavily to the street.- She
fractured two ribs and was severely
bruised. 1 .should, like to make the
street car company pay the expense of
her illness, for. to be frank, we can
hardly afford to let the matter pass." -
Paytou jumped up excitedly. "They
ought to be made to, pay punitive,damages.   We'll sue them for SUo.OOO."
Miss Kingdon did not share his^en
thusiasm.    "I should prefer," she said
quietly," "to   compromise ; the   matter
without resortingto the courts." l
It   was   finally  agreed   that'Payton
should   see  the  claim  agent  and   en
deavor to rush the matter through as
quickly as possible. This afforded hi in
an excuse for "a'daily visit to ' Mis>
Kingdon, and ihe more be saw of her
the more he was satisfied that she was
the one woman who could make him
happy. Tlie claim progressed slowly,
as claims always do, but anally he secured 'from "the company .an' offer.'of
$050, thc��maximum payment in cases
settled out of court.
"This is outrageous," ' said the girl
when  lie  communicated  the  decision.
''They know we iioed-.the money and
that we will have'1 to take th'is rather
than wait several years until the case
has been finally settled on appeal."  <<
v  .Something like a sob ended the sentence, and then she smiled bravely/
"You must not think me mercenary,
, Mr. Pay ton.'- but iny-salary is all 'we

day it.occurred to me'that obscurity
was the open sesame to ,tbe' pages of

anything else, 1 scribbled off a, sonnet

only thought was ,to' string .together a

rhyme. I couldn't help laughing-to
myself when I read it over.' I called it

- A convict had broken bounds and the
dogs were put on the trail, that was
etill warm. It was an exciting scene.
No one was near except: a few prison
officials in charge of a hundred desperate felons, and I felt the exciting sense
of a'sentinel on a lonely outpost as the
six bloodhounds bounded through tangled forest, baying madly at every leap.
Eager was my desire to see the finish.
It came soon.. The negro's force was
spent, and he took to. a tree in his effort
to save himself from the baying dogs.
I could, not help thinking of the scene
when a possum is treed, but 1 doubt
whether the simile occurred to the
wretched, felon. He had broken off a
branch and was desperately lashing
Dynamite, one of. the finest bloodhounds in the state, whose mouth was
only a foot' or two below him. Dynamite has been known to climb trees
and to make a spring of ten feet in getting up to the first branches. Then the
dogs were called off. and the negro, unharmed, was taken back In less 'than an

Odd   Record*.
Records are kept with knotted cords
in Polynesia. During the early part of
'the nineteenth century and previously
.the'.official taxgatherers on the island
of I-iitwaii, lit the Sandwich group, did
all their accounts on a rope 2.400 feet
long, which was divided into lengths,,
each corresponding to a district. Loops,
knots and feathers tied along tthe rope
served as memoranda for the hogs,
pigs and, pieces of sandalwood collected from taxpayers.
The Women  of Carthage.
There is a grand old story told about
the supreme devotion displayed by the
women of Carthage. When their city
was besieged by the Romans, ropes
were needed; but. as there was'no tlax
to make them in the city, the women,
headed by their heroic queen, came to
the rescue. They one and all cut off
their glorious tresses and made ropes
out of their hair.

BOWSER reached bis gate  tbe other evening, just as a  poorly clad man who dragged one leg behind him was,  ' leaving it.    The man had such a discouraged  and  woebegone look on   his  ' face that he was halted and asked the  cause of his distress.  "Why. I asked for a crust of bread  and a cold potato in there an'd was  turned down." he replied.  "You didn't ask for money?" queried  Mr. Bowser.    n , -  "No, sir. I h'avea eaten nothing for  twenty-four   hours,   and   I* asked   for  ."WOMAN,   DO YOD KNOW WHAT-YOU CAVE  DONE?"  . food only. I would have been satis-  - Ced. with the crusts thrown into, the  garbage pail;' but the -woman called  me an Impostor and told me to be off."  .. "She did.'did she? Was it the cook  or the lady of the house?"  "It-was the lady. sir.   Her eyes snap-,  ped when she told me to git.    I wanted to tell her about.my dying wife, but'  ehe wouldn't listen to "a word."  "Is your wife" dying?"  "She Is.    Yes, sir, she's dying for the'  '    want of medicines and food.   She may  be dead when.I get back home.;" If so*.  .   1  shall .jump  into1 the river'at once.  Sir.y'yondo^dt know .what it is^to see  '-   a -wife  dying   for  the-want   of   the-  crumbs people throw out to their dogs."  "Look here, man," said Mr. Bowser,  whose heart had suddenly swelled to'  twice its natural size, ."1 don't happen  to have a cent of cjiadge with me, but if  you will be back here iu about au hour  J'll go with you to your home "and relieve your distress.    Go and'"tell your  wife that you  have  found  some' one  ���������who will provide for her-every want  ���������and that she shall have every care that  money cau buy."  "I'll do it. sir, and I'll ask her to live  ' on. and. oh. sir"��������� 'v  - "There, there���������never mind, my poor  fellow. * Run along with the good news  and be sure to be back iu an hour., All  tbe people in this town haven't .hearts  ot stone." ~" -'*'-'  .i  The man limped off, wiping his eyes-  and. mumbling his thanks, and -Mr.  Howser entered the house with such  a frozen expression on his face.'that  Mrs. Bowser felt a shiver go over her.  and tbe cat looked around for a -safe  hiding place. *  ���������  "Is���������is anything wrong?" was asked  as dinner was served. ,  Mr. Bowser's frozen expression froze  still harder, and there were icicles iu  his voice as he answered:  "We will talk of the matter after  dinner, though how your conscience  can permit you to swallow a single  mouthful of food is beyond me."  There 'was a row coming for sure,  and Mrs. Bowser braced up to meet it.  She hadn't broken a window that day.  and the gas bill hadn't come iu nor the  clothespins been used for fuel jn the  furnace, but something was wrong  somewhere. A grim silence prevailed  until dinner was finished and they had  reached the sitting room, and then Mr.  Bowser -wheeled on her and. pointing  a finger at her nose, hoarsely exclaimed:  "Woman, do you know what you  have done?"  "Has���������has one of the water pipes  bursted?" she asked as she looked  around.  "Don't try to evade the question!"  be exclaimed as he took a step nearer.  "Woman with a heart of stone, you  turned a starving man from our door  an hour ago."  "No. I didn't. An old tramp came  along and asked for 10 cents, and"���������  "He was no old tramp. He was the  husband of a woman dying for the  want of food and care. He himself  hadn't tasted food for a day or two.  With tears in his eyes and a heart full  of grief he asked you for a crust, for a  cold potato���������aye. for a bone���������and what  reply did you m.ak/j? Heartless, seliish  female, you bade'him be gone!"  "I say he was an old tramp whose  breath smelled of whisky, and he wanted 10 cents to buy more with. He's  called here a dozen times. If you let  that man take you in"���������  -Silence.'" roared Mr. Bowser. "1  understand you perfectly. You have  no heart    The sufferings of your fel  low beings are nothing to you. You  care not who- dies or who 'lives. A  starving man with a dying wife asks  To:' a-cold potato���������simply a, cold potato  ���������-and you threaten him with the police! Heavens, but is there another  si'ch .woman in all this world?"  "It's no use to try to make j*ou understand," said Mrs. Bowser as she  s.-H down.    ,  -Not a bit of it; uot a bit." he replied. -If that poor man, is at the  present moment'lying exhausted on the  sidewalk while his wife has closed hor  "vi'!- in d:\-ith. you, alone arc to blame  for it, and 1 wouldn't have your conscience for all the wealth of Golcouda.  If able to drag himself back, the man  is now at out* gate and waiting for me ���������  I shall accompany him home and alleviate his distress. If she is able to  bear the journey, 1 shall send his pooi  ���������wife to the hospital in an ambulance.  As for you, woman���������as for you uud  your accusing conscience"-���������  "My conscience does not accuse me."  she interrupted.  ���������"as for you ancl your accusing con-'  science, you can sit here in eompa'ny.  and 1 don't begrudge you your re'lee-  'tions. 'What in blazes is the matter  with that old'eat?" r <  ��������� "She seems to be smiling," replied  Mrs Bowser as she looked oVer to  where the feline was silting up witb a  grin on her face  Mr. Bowser .looked around for a  crowbar, but as there was none, bandy  lie passed down the hall'and'put on  his overcoat and hat and left the  house.' The man' was, at the gate  waiting for, him. There were new  tears in his eyes and a new color'of*  red to his"nose..  '"How can 1 -ever thank you, kind'  sir?" he exclaimed as he led the way'  down the street  "I want no thanks,"- replied Mr. Bow- ,  ser.    "If you had only come to me a-  month ago. this would  not have bap-,  pened.,   Do you think  your  wife  will  live till we get there?"  "I hope so.t Poor Mary!"  Mr.   Bowser   followed  blindly,'  even  when the man entered an' alley.    His  'thoughts were full of. beef'tea. ambulances,   doctors   and' 'hospitals   when  two  men jumped out of a  barn,  the  starving husband turned back.���������and the  trio had him on.his back before he understood tbe situation.    His watch and  wallet were taken possession or with  lightninglikcrapidity, and after rolling  him  ovt*r and bestowing a  kick '-upon  him the men ran away and left him to  get   up and. find  his way  home.   Mrs."  Bowser sat  reading .when  she' heard  what seemed to" be the ga'liop of !a horse  afar off.   She rose up. ' It came nearer  and   nearer.    She   went  to  the   front  door, fo|lowed by tbe cat   The beating  hoofs turned in at the' gate," ciatfered  up the steps,  and  as sho opened  the  door   Mr.   Bowser   fell   into   the'"ball.  His hat was missing, his clothing torn,  and  he was covered witb ashes frptn  head to heel. \  , "Well.-'is the dying wife dead?", she  asked as she looked down on him",   .;  He didn't reply. He was boxed up.  and he realized that words were useless. ' M. QUAD.  | TWO %  ������  ���������  LUNATICS   By P. Y. BLACK:  Copyright, loos.  By the S.

They had no opportunity to-meet  alone for several days., Perhaps they  might have made opportunities, hut  they'did not'. Doubtless it occurred to  each of these two lunatics that it was  the 'wiser thin:; to stifle at once any  friendship which each thought likely,  to cause useless pain in the future to  the other.

A  young man sat at a desk apart in the  reporters' room, and he scribbled and  he scribbled. By and by the managing  editor came in and looked over the  busy writer's shouleler and told him  that he had only an hour to finish up  in. Then the great presses began to  clatter, and in a little -while the first  edition of The Gazette was ready for-  the street, .with an enormous black'  ���������care head on the front pane.  And in the office of- The Morning;  Jury there was also a- very lively bustling, arid there; at a retired desk, a  young woman sat, and tshe scribbled  and she scribbled, andjate at-night the  presses began to i;umble, -and in a little while the first edition of The Jury  .was ready for the street, with an enormous black scare head on the front  page.  The Gazette and The Jury were within a few minutes of each other in getting out. A copy of each paper was  hustled into the office of the other, for  rival editors watch each other's work  with catlike iutentness. And the-Gazette office read with dismay that' the  great asylum mystery had been solved  by the indefatigable efforts of a Jury,  report er,.. while The Jury night staff  tore its editorial hair over the flaring  boast pf v������?ie Gazette that its "special  commi:^siii|SM"'had given to a waiting  :"worId *the'"fii;������t dnd only enlightenment  of the;'.'fambjas crime. There had been  no time, for one paper to lift the news  from the other. How had the expected  scoop been spoiled?  Tumultuous was the wrath in the  two, offices. Miss Tracy was explaining' to 'her: managing editor, with tears  in her eyes, that she could not under-  stand^ at all, at all, how The Gazette  had got hold of it In The Gazette office Mr. St. John stormed and swore  and said that for the life of him he  could not understand how The Jury  had got almost the same story..  "Good heavens!" shouted St. John  suddenly, and he dashed out,to The  Jury ofSce. There he found a friend,  with whom he conferred. . The ..two  lunatics were introduced to each .other  and a minute or two afterward were  alone together. ���������  They laughed a great deal at the  ���������idea of two reporters on the same  strange assignment never suspecting  each other, but their laugh was not  very loud.

Those who meet with the word  iu their reading do not often stop' Io  ask how it.came to be applied.    It_np  pears that the first attempt at the por-  iraiture    of    the    unfortunate    Mary,  --jueen of Scots,  was made in   her in  fancy,   and   her   small   face   was   en  graved   upon   the Scottish  halfpennies  at the time of her ---jronatiou i'i  ir������j;t.  when  she  was   but   niife   tnou'.hs   old.  A number of these small coins tire stil'  preserved, anil it will be easily tinder-  stood   how   the   name   "bawbee.*"   or  baby,  came.to-.be given   to   the coin  bearing  the elligy  cf  the baby.

It Is said of a former Marquis 'of  Townshend, that when young and engaged in battle he saw a drummer at  his side killed by a cannon ball which  scattered his brains in every direction.  His eyes were at otice fixed ou the  ghastly object, which seemed to engross his thoughts. A superior officer ;  observing him supposed he was intimidated at the sight and, addressed him.  In a manner, to cheer his spirits. "Oh 1"  said the young marquisi with calmness, but severity. **i am not frightened.  I am puzzled to make out how any man  with such a quantity.of brains ever  came to be here!"    *  Slitting; Tree Baric.

Now, I  knew lions as well as he;- deliberate  hunting for a. lion who mourns a  murd.-red mate \\a!s a. proceeding so  temerarious that the most foolhardy  of professional hunters, would ' not  dare the conflict. But ia the near  .nou'hborhood ,01 the spot where Madame Lionets had been killed' there  was one , lion with , an earthquake  voice whose rumblings fascinated the  fiery spirit of Van Aardt.  "I am going," ho said.  1 could not let him go alone, for  we had fought too often side by side.  We started off, my reckless comrade  laying out, in calmest confidence, the  artless plan he had of walking up,to  that tumultuous hell of wrath incarnate and of blowing a few lethal  holes in it  with his  Mauser.  As we came nearer, the roars, ceas-,  ed. The lion, weary with his imprecations of the night, had gone away  from the scene of his bereavement for  rest and sleep. But,we found in the  jungle's depths the footway' he ��������� had  trod: in a sentry path of 20 feet he  had stalked back' and forth for  twelve hours, calling aloud' for vengeance.    <������  Kristmansen, who ha,'", looked upon  Van Aardt as a hot-h , ded madman  for a. time, decided he. would use the  morning' for a peaceful , springbok'  hunt, and took his Kaffir boy along.  He went in the direction opposite to  ours. After half an hour's close  tracking, the Kaffir, who had been  in advance, appeared1"at'.'his -elbow  with impish' suddenness, and in a  whispered word :. ,*''',"  "Baas,' a lion!"  Kristmansen started ^ahead of him.  There in a tiny clearing iiot 30 yards  away,  the  monarch  stood,  liis mane  quivering  with  the intensity., of -his  attention,   and   his   brilliant  eyeballs  gleaming   in ,-the  effort Vto    penetrate  the single veil, of cover  that hid the  hunter from his view.

But!  the majority 'of us were away,    and  that^lion,  with all the other's among  the spouses   of Faric's   lioness,   went  unmolested  from  that  day forth.  I was in Pretoria a little later and  saw a sight that told me how wise 1  Kristmansen had been. ^ The oldest  lion hunter of 'the Transvaal shook  me by the hand���������and used his left  hand for the greeting. The other  arm hung, withered and helpless, at'  his side. Only half his face waa  there to speak to me. The other '  half went into a lion's maw a few (  months earlier.  He was hunting springbok with his  ���������sco. and carried an ancient muzzle  loader A dead shot, the old man  decried a buck not n0 feet away, and  kneeling, fired. The crack of the  rifle was answered by.-the snarling  roar of a wounded lion. The bullet,  passing through the buck, had struck ,  the mighty beast us he was about to '  spring.' And it had no more than  wounded him. 1  Fie leaped for the smoke, coming '  on in flying bounds, while my old  fr'ei>d fumbled wildly with his powder horn. He was too slow.

Another, and Ihe side of his face had  vanished. The cavernous throat ,  above the prostrate man roared once  more, before thd teeth should clash .  together, when the son. running up,  put. his rifle barrel to the lion's side,  and drove a half-ounce, bullet through  his heart.
