 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO  DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR.  NELSON:   THURSDAYr MORNING NOVEMBER M  1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  NEWS FROM THE MINING CENTERS  Storm Played Havoc at the Commonwealth and Work  Has Been Suspended.  TO SHIP ORE FROM THE OTTAWA-OTHER MATTERS  The crew came dowli from the  Commonwealth group on Hooker  creek yesterday and work has been  . suspended for tlie winter. The  storm which prevailed here was a  blizzard in tlie hills und blew down  a couple of buildings at the Commonwealth which had not been  constructed hurricane proof. This  prevented tho program of work being carried out as arranged. Recently the vein on tlie property  was crosscut at a depth of 50 feet  and proved to be 12 feet in width,  carrying good silver and gold  values all across. Specimens from  tho crosscut are ou exhibition at  T. G. Procter's office. A crosscut  tunnel to tap tlie vein at tlie 100-  foot level was under way and almost completed when the bad  weather interfered with operations.  Will Ship Soon. ^  It is understood that the Ottawa  property, adjoining the Tamarac on  Springer creek, will ship a quantity  of ore during the winter. The owners, Thomas Mnlvey- and '.lohn Mc-  Kinnon, .arc working tlie proposition .and have quite five cars of  shipping ore in sight at present.  Their vein is similar to that of the  Arlington, carrying leaf silver and  it is expected that the. Ottawa's  shipments will make somewhat of  a sensation. The Tamarac -will  make several shipments during the  winter.    \V What Will They Do?  : The men interested in Silverton  properties are awaiting with, considerable interest to learn what the  Miner-Graves Syndicate purpose  doing with the Rockland. group on  Eight-mile creek. It is stated that  this property is remarkable in several respects. The ore body is  claimed to be a full 100 feet in  width resembling in this the great  ore bodies of the Rossland camp,  and that the ore averages $15 clean  across. Since the Miner-Graves  outfit took over the property  they have spent a sum, estimated  at $30,000 on the Rockland, but  work has been closed down for  a couple of months. It is thought  they were well satisfied with the results attained and that when work  is recommenced it will' be  on a very large scale.  Such a program, would very materially affect the progress of the entire section, in fact, several deals  are pendingactionin this direction.-  Adjoining the Rockland is the  Congo x>roperty, from which a  number of very large gold assays  have been taken. Another adjoining property is the L."H. group on  which a strike bf metallic arsenic  was made recently. It is predicted  that with these properties in operation on a scale consistent with  their merits, the district would  come to the ..-front with great  strides. -'  May Resume Work.  Bruno Thomas, an engineer representing Vancouver capitalists,  was in the city yesterday en route  to the Slocan to examine the Great  Western group between Kaslo and  Sandon, which his syndicate owns  outright, and the Two Friends on  ' Springer creek in which they own  a half interest. The syndicate acquired the Great Western some  years ago, paying a round figure  for the property. They spent some  $20,000 and shipped a quantity of  high grade galena ore. Work was  then suspended and nothing has  been done for a couple of years.  Tho Two Friends property is now  in operation and small shipments  are made regularly. Should Mr.  .Thomas' report be favorable the  Great Western will be opened on a  good basis and work on the Two  Friends proceeded with on a more  . comprehensive scale.  Two Bonds on One Property.  For a time it was difficult to interest capital in the Cottonwood  creek section, but at the present  time the anomaly exists of two  bonds on the same  property.     A  short time since Miss Leigh Spencer,  the lady mining broker' of Vancouver, recorded a bond on the  Robin Hood group, the consideration being $10,000 payable in two  years with a continuous work  clause in the agreement. Previous  "to this Bruno Thomas of Vancouver  had worked a couple of months on  the group for a coast syndicate and  yesterday he recorded a bond on  the Robin Hood, with practically  the same terms set forth. The  document was drawn up in September antedating Miss Spencer's document by a month. Miss Spencer  now has a small crew at work on  the property which is said to be-  showing up very well.  Encouraging Reports.  George Gurd is in receipt of encouraging reports from the Kaslo  group on the south fork of Carpenter creek, three-quarters of a mile  from Cody. Tie has twelve men at  work ou the property and development is being pushed ahead as rapidly as possible. It is "probable  that several shipments of ore will  be made from the Kaslo during the  winter.    The Road Is .Finished.  David McBeath has returned from  Crawford Bay, h,aving completed  road from the lake to  Hill mine, one of the'  Richelieu Consolidated  Several feet of snow is  on the ground at. the head of the  road and sufficient has fallen all  along to render teaming practicable  within a few days at least. The  McVeigh brothers, who have the  contract for teaming 5000 tons of  ore from the mine to the lake, have  about finished their buildings and  will start work before the 1st of  next month.  tein on the 13th instant; private A.  W. Stewart of * A' squadron, Strathcona's Horse, slightly wounded at  Muzareb on the 11th instant; gunner W. R. Hare, 'D' battery,. Canadian artillery, slightly wounded at  Leomefontein on the 0th.. It is  just possible that this last may be  private G. L. Hall of Calgary, who  went out as one of the reinforcements to Strathcona's Horse. From  the number given, however, it is almost certain that the man is gunner W. R. Hare of Elgin county,  Ontario. Private Chancellor is a  native of Atliu, B. C, and joined  Strathcona's Horse in Winnipeg.  Private A. W. Stewart comes from  Sandy Point, Ontario.  the wagon  the Silver  London <fe  properties.  A Promising Property.  Tho Hewitt property on Four-  mile creek near Silverton is one of  the most promising propositions in  that section. -A crew of about 20  men is employed and the program  for the winter's work includes extensive shipments. The "property  has two veins, one of dry ore very  rich and the second of straight  galena which is said to be an extension of the Galena Farm ledge.  A Rare Metal.  It may be of interest to readers  of Tub Trihune to learn that  molybdenite, one of the rare metals,  is frequently encountered in ores  from the Nelson and Slocan camps.  -The=-mineral-=oceurs=in=softj=lead--  gray, leaf-like masses or scales  resembling graphite, which is reduced as molybdenum as a hard,  silver-white metal difficult to fuse.  The molbydenite is practically  valueless, as only a small quantity  is used in the arts and sciences, one  of its utilities being as a feature of  the compound used in lead assays.  The mineral is reduced at one point  only iu the United States or Canada.  It is reported that English steel  manufacturers are using molybdenum in the production of steel  and this may possibly create some  demand. ���  Had Served Four Terms.  New York, Noveniber 2.1.���  Frank Wilson, who was arrested  with a lawyer named Zeimer and  others in connection with the "divorce mill" conspiracy a few weeks  ago, pleaded guilty before recorder  Goff to four indictments for perjury  found against- him in connection  with the cases in the "divorce mill"  operation. Wilson admitted that  he had served four.; terms of two  years each in prison for counterfeiting. Lawyer Pentecost, who  represented Wilson, said that he  would aid tho state in the prosecution of the other cases. Recorder  Goff remanded Wilson for a week  for sentence.  Casualties Among Canadians.  Montreal, November 21.���The  Star's London cable says tho war  office has been advised of the following casualties among Canadian  troops: "Private E. V. Chancellor,  ���C squadron, Strathcona's Horse,  died of enteric fever at Elandsfon-  Little Interest Taken.  Montreal, November 21.���So far  but very little interest is manifested by either side in the principal provincial campaign.. The Conservatives have no hope of defeating the Parent government, but  will in view of the sweep of the  Laurier government be content to  ���hold their own. Hon. E. J. Flynn,  leader of the opposition, has issued  a protest against tho dissolution of  the legislature without any great  question being at stake and to the  shortness of the notice, but three  weeks between dissolution and  polling day.  Burned in His Bed.  Montreal, November 21.���A portion of the wall of tho Theatre  Francaise, in course of construction,  collapsed in a gale this afternoon  and in its fall demolished iij small  house occupied by%wo Italian families. Alsetto Costello, who boarded  with one of those families, was  lying ill in bed. An overturned  stove set fire to the ruins, and before the firemen could reach him he  Was so badly burned that he died  on the way to the hospital. Four  others were slightlyjnjurned.   0  IN NORTH FORK DISTRICT  PROMISING    FINING     PROPOSITIONS  NOTRH OF ERIE,  Big Stretch of Country With Many Copper and Gold Properties, Some*  Well Developed.  Montreal Suffers.  Montreal, November 21.���Montreal was in the path of a heavy  wind storm tonight, the wind attaining a velocity of 72 miles an  hour in gusts. There was much  damage of a'minor character done,  while electric wires suffered heavily, considerable portions of the  city being left in dardness.  HE REITERATES THE CHARGE  CLAIMS     GALLIHER    MUST  ABSENT   MINDED.  BE  McKane   Challenges the Liberal Candidate to Meet Him in Public  and Make Denial.  Fighting John McKane has Big  Bill Galliher on the hip on the question of that eight-hour law petition.  The"petitionin^questioiirwas=print*-=  ed in a return brought down to the  house on the 20th of January, 1900,  It bears date April 1st, 1900, and  the signatures attached are of men  prominent in business in Nelsou,  Candidate Galliher made a mistake  in hastily denying that he signed  the petition, as few men can keep  track of all the petitions they sign.  Candidate McKane is playing the  card for all it is worth, and notwithstanding the denials of Mr.  Galliher and his friends reiterates  the charge and challenges candidate  Galliher to meet him on the public  platform and deny it. The following telegram explains itself:  Kamloops, November 21.���To tlie  Editor of the Tribune: Notwithstanding denials of Galliher and his  friends re eight-hour law, I reiterate my charge and have challenged  Galliher to meet me on the public  platform hero and deny it. So far  he has failed to answer my challenge. He has had ample time to  meet mo here tonight. All honest  Liberals should frown upon and  show by their votes on December  0th their disapproval of Galliher's,  to say the least, absent-minded  methods. John McKane.  Mississippi Tornado.  Arkauucla, Mississippi, November 21.���Yesterday forenoon a tornado descended upon this little  town, and as a result of its fearful  intensity ten persons were killed  outright and twenty were injured.  A conference of foreign envoys  adjourned yesterday at Pekin.  A promising mineral section lies  along the north fork of the Salmon  river, which, rises in the watershed  between the Kootenay and Salmon  rivers and flows^almost due south  to its juncture-with'- the Salmon at  Salmo. The country is well mineralized, the principal values being  found in fissure veins running north  and south in a granite and diorite  formation and carrying gold .and  copper. The veins average about  three feet in width and are classified as low or medium grade. Feeding tho north fork from the west  slope are Whiskey, Rest, Burnt and  East fork croeks.-while on the east  slope are Feen'ey, Mackay,'West  Fork and Granite'creeks. The section is well timbered arid splendid  water power eaiS be had at many  points. The country was prospected in 1890 aud ii-"large number" of  locations are stalied. Several properties have been developed more or  less extensively,;- and while ---"there  are no actual producers it's safe to  predict that another season will see  ore coming out of'the section.  Between Erie and Salmo on the  west side of the north fork, and  particularly on Copper mountain  are a number, .of claims on which  the work is confined to assessments.  Enough has beeir done, however, to,  indicate that the * mountain shows  up well iu copper; values . and , further work will , doubtless demonstrate more ' than one property  above the average merit.  Following the stream from Erie  toward its source tlie first property  encountered is-;*the;A^oniq.Lgroup"  on Erie mountain "a mile west of  the town. It comprises six claims  aud was staked in 1893 by Joseph  Harrison and William Feeney, two  of the pioneer prospectors. The  property was recently stocked  under the name of the Gordon Mining and Milling Company and work  was started on the group last  month. Cabins are erected and  operations will be continued during  the winter. The Antonio is a gold  proposition. The principal vein is  12 feet in width, and a sample recently taken clean across the ledge  gave a return of $8, A 350-foot  tunnel is be'ing driven to crosscut  the vein at a depth of 200 feet. If  the development warrants it a  stamp mill will be installed on the  group next summer..  The Armstrong group is also located on Erie mountain and is  owned by Sam Marshall, W. Fee-  ney and J. Harrison. It is a silver  and gold smelting proposition, with  a vein of three feet on which 08  feet of tunneling and 20 feet of  sinking has been done. Assays as  high as 190 ounces of silver and .$20  iu gold have been had from the  group. A couple of years ago the  property was bonded to William  Davis of London, England, at  $30,0.00. No work was done although part of the purchase money  has been paid over. The balance  of the mountain has been staked,  but little work has been done on  the remaining claims. .  On MacKay creek is the Jupiter  group, staked in 1891 by George  Green of Rossland as the Katie D.  Green Mining Company. Tt is a  gold and copper property with a  three foot vein on which a shaft  has been sunk 80 feet and other  work done. The camp is equipped  with a cook-house, bunk-house,  blacksmith shop, and other essentials to active development, which  is expected to be started uext  spring.  The Bell and Rosie claims are located on Craig mountain and are  owned by Coryello, Quinlau and  Guyette. The principal values on  the property are in copper, which  exists in places as high as 20 per  cent. The owners have done 100  feet of tunneling besides- crosscuts  at various points. W. R- Craig of  Erie is the owner of other promising claims on Craig mountain.  On Burnt creek McGilliam and  Benn brothers arelargely interested.  They have the Mersey and Hexe-  dron properties, both of which are  promising gold and  copper propo  sitions. Benn brothers also have  the North Fork claim on the divide  between Burnt and East Fork  creeks. Considerable work has  been done on the claim and it  shows up well.  Donaldson mountain has been  the center of mining operations on  West Fork creek. The Hidden  Treasure Mining Company holds  three claims on which they, have a  comfortable camp and 150 feet  of tunneling. The Arnold claim is  owned by Rossland parties and the  Maud S. in Vancouver.- William  Donnelly owns the Robert J. group  of three claims which run 8 to 10  per cent in copper.  J. Harrison, E. F. Pick, A. B.  Downs and Duncan Dewar have the  Last Chance, Ballybo, Twin and  Vixen claims aud Ajax Fraction  which are' among the most promising in the district. On the Twin  the ore averages 15 per cent in  copper and $5 in gold. On the  Last Chance the ore runs 8 per cent  in copper and carries gold and  silver values in a four foot vein on  which a shaft has been sunk 30  feet. The owners are now tunneling  -on the Twin where aggregate.values  of $40 have been had. The Ontario  group in this vicinity, is owned- by  Colfax parties who have stocked  tho proposition, but no work is  being done at the time of writing.  Adjoining the" Second Relief  property; referred to * recontly in  connection with the Whiskey creek  section is the Big Bump claim,  owned by Finch & Campbell of  Spokane, and the Ida D. in which  the same parties have a half inter:  est. A tunnel is now being driven  on the Big Bump. Both properties  are said to be unusually rich, an  estimate of the aggregate values  being'placed at $50 to the ton.  On the west side of the .north  fork is the Blue Dick and Atlanta  property, owned by Robert Rainey  of Spokane, and the Nancy C,  owned by Joe Campbell of Erie.  On the Blue Dick streaks of quartz  are found carrying good values-in  free gold, Granite creek, near the  headwaters of the north fork, is  staked for same distance,, but the  work up to date has not been extensive enough to demonstrate the  merits of .the section;- &_..,-' - -^---j--'  A number of. deals are pending in  the North Fork district, and it is  probable that next summer will see  considerable activity in the section.

Marseilles, November 21.���A  blunder in the calculations of the  time the Gelderland would require  between Port 'Said and Marseilles  resulted in the fizzling out today of-  the intended demonstration and  imperiled the success of the reception tomorrow.. The French reception committee did not take into  consideration the gale sweeping  over the Mediterranean and the low  speed of the Gelderland,but allowed  all their arrangements to stand,  The Boer delegates, victims of  the organizing committee, waited  expectantly at their hotel from  early morning until the afternoon  for the arrival of the cruiser. For  several hours the carriage intended  for Mr. Kruger remained at the  entrance of the hotel, the horses,,  which'were decorated with rosettes  of Boer colors, pawing the ground  impatiently until the equipage was  dismissed. Various delegations and  societies that had assembled at the  landing stage remained through  heavy showers until they realized  that in the non-signaling of the  Gelderland that their presence was  futile.   Then they disbanded.  The fiasco was unfortunate, because thousands among today's  concourse will shrink from the possibility of losing another morning  tomorrow. Today's crowds wore  for the greater part made up of  workingmen and shop keepers, who  New York, November 21.���Lord  Curzon, viceroy of India, furnishes  to the New York Journal the fol-  lowing on the famine conditions in  India:  If a special characteristic can be  attributed to our campaign of famine relief iu the past year it has  been its unprecedented liberality.  There is,no parallel'in the history  of India or any other country of  the world to the total of over  6,000,000 persons who, in British  India and the native states, .for  weeks on end have been dependent  upon the charity of the government. . The famine cost $34,000,000  in direct expenditure, while over  $8,000,000 was given to landholders  and cultivators ou loans and advances, besides loans to native  states.  An impression appears to prevail  that assistance received from other  countries has been scant and disappointing. - I'do not share these  views. Looking, to the circumstances under which our appeal was*  made, and even accepting the test  of comparison with the famine of  1S9G-97,1 still hold that the amount  contributed has been munificent,  while its utility can scarcely be  overrated. In 1890-97 the total  collections amounted to $5,780,000,  of which $3-10,000 remained oyer at  the begiuning of the recent famine.  In the present year the Central Relief Committee has received a sum  of close upon $5,000,000.     ,. ���    ���������'-  To analyze , the subscriptions:  India "has contributed - about' the  same amount to the fund as in 1890-  97���namely, $1,088,000. - If the contributions from the European community are deducted, India may be  considered to have contributed less  than one-fifth of. the total collections of $5,000,000. More might  have been expected from the native  community as a whole,' notwithstanding individual examples of remarkable generosity. The " little  colony of the Straits Settlements,  which has no connection with India  beyond that of sentiment, has given  more than the whole Punjab.  A careful observation of the  figures and proceedings in each province compels me to say that native  India has not yet reached as high a  standard of practical philanthropy  and charity as might reasonably be  expected. Though private wealth  in India is not widely distributed,  its total volume is considerable.    If  abroadj  against  United"  $3,009,-  Englishmen in various parts of~~tbe~  world can be found, as they have  been found twice in three years,  willing to contribute enormous  sums for the relief of India on the  sole ground that its people are suffering fellow-subjects of the same  lost money by attending the gathering, and who are not likely to repeat the experiment. Bad weather  and the element of uncertainty as  to the time of Kruger's landing  kept many thousands even today  from the route. Thirty thousand  would be a generous estimate of  the crowd which was massed thickly at several points, while only  sparse assemblies Avere to be seen  elsewhere.  The French and Boer delegates  were all intensely disappointed, especially as up to a late hour no  news had been received of the Gel-  derland'a entry into the harbor, although it is fully expected that she  will anchor there before daybreak  tomorrow. No importance is attached to tho report of an injury to  her machinery, the theory being  that she is merely going slowly in  consequence of a heavy sea, whieh  is responsible for the delay.  Lord Roberts Rumored Injured.  London*,'' November 21. ��� The  Evening Standard in a special  edition this evening says : ".lust  as wo are going to press tho news  reached London that lord Roberts  was thrown from his horse and received severe injuries." The officials  of the war office say they are not  in a position to report anything in  connection     with     the     rumored  queen, it surely behooves the morer  affluent of the native community  not to lag behind in the succor of  those who are of their own race and  creed. > *  , The    collections    from  amounted to $3,072,000, as  $4,658,000 in 1896-97.     The"  Kingdom's contribution of  000 compared indifferently with its "".J  "contribution of $4,182,000 in 1896 97, ;S  but in the circumstances of the>y  year it is a noble gift. -     .-j  -The liberal donation of Germany," *v  at the instigation of the emperor * ,^  has already been publicly acknow- rr  ledged.

The  people should remember this at the  next , election, and ,elect to the  council men who are not only known  to believe in municipal ownership  of water and electric lighting  system.-*, but men pledged to the  hilt to oppose any attempt that  may bo in ado to lot the West Kootonay Power ��fc Light Company into  the city, This is an issue that must  not be lost sight of. There is often  danger under tho cloak of amiability  and good fcllowisin in city councils.  Hon. Richaiid McBRinio,minister  of mines, is in Nelson. He is making a trip through the mining districts of this section of the province  to ascertain tho requirements of nil  the men engaged in the mining industry. Yesterday ho was shown  through the Hall Mines smelter, and  today will leave for Kaslo. Prom  there he will go to Sandon, and  back to Nelson via New Denver,  Silverton and Slocan City, While  in Nelson he will look into two orr  three questions that are unsettled  as between the city and the province. Mr. McBride is one of the  youngest men that has ever held a  portfolio in a government in Canada, and -wears the honors as gracefully as if he had been born to  office.           The question of taxation is becoming a live one in  Ontario.    In  Toronto, the other day,  Ontario's  assessment commission held a lively  and important  session.    The subject for the day was "The most  " equitable    method   of   assessing  " stock in trade of mercantile iirms  " and corporations," aril its importance was shown by the large attendance of representative business  men and the keen discussion. Widely differing views. wei*e  expressed  by the representatives of different  interests.   All except the officials  of the city of Toronto found fault  with the present method of taxing  this class of property.    Mr. Mac-  Kelcan, representing   the   Ontario  Municipal Association, and Mr. Hut-  ton, assessor of Hamilton, desired  to have an   assessment ,of visible  and   tangible    stock   without   respect to indebtedness tliereon.   A.  E. Kemp, M.  P.,  president of tlio  Board of Trade of Toronto; J. D.  Allan,   vice-president,   and   other  representatives of the wholesale interests of Toronto, desired to see a  business tax based ou rental values.  W,  B.  Rogers,   president   of   the  Retail Merchants' Association, and  other members of .that body opposed the present system and wgre  willing to accept the wholesalers'  suggestion of a business  tax provided a special grade tax on  turn-  over were levied on departmental  stores.     A   deputation from   the  Hamilton   Board   of   Trade   wore  -willing-to accept-tlio-biisiness-tax,-  while   Mi*.   Fullei'ton,   corporation  counsel   of   Toronto,   and   R,   J.  Fleming, assessment commissioner,  desired tlie law to remain as it is,  as they found it to work equitably.  Single-tax _ representatives _ endeavored to argue that no personally  should   be_ taxed,   but ,thoy, were  ruled out of order, on  tho ground  that under the order for the day it  were assumed that taxes would be  levied on this class of property.  Too Many Useless Men,  Toronto Telegram.  Without prejudice to. the talk  about the public ownership of, this  '.franchise arid that utility, it might  be a good idea for tlie people to  pause .'and make sure that they own  the city council. Too often this  year's council 'lias acied and talked  as if .they were tlie property of the  contractors and, the civic officials,  A shaice-iipat the polls would do a  world of good to tlie city council,  which lipids no greater menace to  good go.v.eni'irieri't���..th\u*t the dull  resprectabilitx.i?f ^a^an-jr aldermen  who are conspicuously .h'pnest and  just as 'conspicuously useless,  A Tenementi House Tragedy.  ��� ^."EJY.

Washing-ton, November 21.--The  developments in the Colombian  revolutionary movement .aro��bcing  watched herewith keen interest.as  well as with some anxiety.. This is  true of the movement of theu British gunboat Pheasant from Victoria  to the isthmus, where it is understood she is to elTect a. settlement  with the Colombian government  for the seizure of the^British,-merchant ship Taboga by the Venezuelan army as a transport. The.fact  that a sum of money was offered  to the captain of the Taboga for  the use of his ship does not legally  offset the protest of tho British  consul against the seizure, so it may  be expected that the , Colombian  government will be called to a  severe account.

Defeat for Joseph -Featherston  lias driven the Peel -Banner to describe itself as a "Canadian" and to  "dread���the future.'-'- There is no  proof that., the;-. Banner-- has -ever  been a-Canadianin politics. It-has  been a partisan twenty-four hours  a day and smartness has been the  idol which it has adored. Dry rot  in the leadership of the- party-was  the cause of Liberal defeat in.vPeel.  The faintest trace of" independence  would have exposed Joseph Feath-  erston to the wrath of little local  bosses. The defeat of a good man  who preached and practised party,  party all the time, is a suggestion  that these local bosses are not- the  absolute owners of a free constituency.  -    Tiger Fight.  "Tlie tiger's the cruel animal in  the -menagerie," says one of the  keepers at New York's Central  Park Zoo.  "A short time ago- two tigers  fought in one of the cages.  "The female had been brought in  fresh and fighting from the jungle.  The male was born right here in  the menagerie.  "We put 'em  in  separate cages  first, next to each other, so they'd  |. get   acquainted.     Then   when we  =tlioirglit'**Till*=?^irs_~safe_ w��".6t~'em~  share tho same cage. ����� -  "She was a devil, that tiger ! Her  eyes were tricky, and she was just  as smooth and graceful as could be.  Her sides were soft and sheeny.  Then she'd sway and kind o' ripple,  and she'd lower her .head and look  at you, fit to make you crazy..  _ "Then all of a sudden she'd open  J? her red warm mouth wide, and  whine and spit, as though she was  longing to taste your blood. She  reminded me of some women,  "The two of 'cm had the same  pail of water between them. He  was contented and willing enough  to share it, but sho thought she'd  queen it, and see how it would  work. So when he started to  drink she sprang .it him all of a  sudden and landed up by his neck.  "That made him mad; he wasn't  going to stand that, if he" had been  born in a menagerie. He yelled at  her and bit her. But she'd been  taking care of herself all her life in  the jungle, while he'd never.had a  show.SSho played with him mighty  rough, ahd pretty > soon -you could  see the blood coming through his  skin.  "Then the lions started up, and  the whole house began to roar, and  that old donkey over there helped  out, too. There was- music, I: can  tell you. If that wasn't a prize  fight I never saw one.  "It toook all the keepers to try  to separate 'em, and the people  were sent away, But by that  time the tigers wero so crazy they  didn't know the difference between  the sharp ends of the iron bars  they .were -sticking 'em with and  their own nails and teeth.-      -*-*--  "They kept it up for ten minutes.
