A woman in stunning nttiro got
aboard a Columbus avenue car at
I Forty-ninth street. When the con

1 him a five dollar bill. Ho put tho
1 usual question about smaller change
and sho gavo tho usual ncgativo re

i especially for tho conductor. Ob
viously she was such a lino lauy
that to put her off tho car for non
payment of fnro would bo to invito
ids own downfall. Ho looked at thu
men who sat near, with an urgent
, appeal for a nickel in his eyes, but
I thoso uncluvalrous passengers wcro

Tho woman got nervous. "What
shall I do?" sho said,
j "Perhaps I can find somebody
who has chango for tho bill," snid

Ho sounded several pcoplo on tho
subject, but they proved to bo Bhort

us tho undergrowth was black and
still, for tho moon had not yet risen.
Suddenly there was a movement as
though a portion of its blackness
had detached itself from tho rest
and begun to creep a.vay. Just at
that moment the moon roso and
revealed to us tho litho body of a
panther slinking through tho under
growth. A shot rang out, and with
u yelp of pain tho panther disap
peared into the bushes.
With tho sunriso wo descended
from the platform and began to
examine tho panther's trail. Tho
effect of tho Bhot was shown by tho
patches of blood on tho ground,
which led us through a couplo of
hundred yards of thick jungle.
After crawling on hands and knees
undor tho brushwood wo reached a
narrow nullah. A little beyond
this we camo upon tho wounded
panther scaling a tree. I fired, but

had been removed tho day before
