A Brutal "Sport" That Was Populsr In
Tbe principle of bull baiting was ex
tremely simple. A collar was fasten
ed round tbe bull's neck, and by this
the bull was attached by a rope to a
stake. Tbe rope varied from nine to
fifteen feet In length and therefore al
lowed tbe bull but little movement
Tbe audience was accommodated In a
circle or "ring."
The bulldog's duty was to grasp tbe
bull's nose, and when he bad succeed'
ed In obtaining a grip be waa required
to maintain his hold, despite the ef
forts of tbe larger animal to dislodge
blm. Tbe bull awaited the attack with
lowered horns, which the dog sought
to evade by crouching toward the bead
of his opponent. Sometimes tbe bull
managed to get his horns under or
Into tbe dog. which was then thrown
high Into tbe air.
Writers state that dogs bad been
tossed up to a height of thirty or forty
feet. Tbe dog, if be survived, would
"retire hurt" On tbe other band, once
the dog, which was trained to grip only
the nose, obtained a bold his adver
sary would have little chance of shak
lng blm off. Tbe bull would whirl the
dog In tbe air and struggle frantically
to wrench his nose free from the ter
rible grip. When, from sheer exhaus
tion, the dog dropped clear of the bull
a fresh dog was sent Into tbe ling.
Photographing a Panther.
A panther Is not easily killed and
will often revive with very unpleasant
results, as on a certain occasion in the
Deccan. He appeared to be qnlte
dead, and one of the spectators rushed
np with a camera on a stand to obtain
a picture of the supreme moment. He
got his photograph, and. strange to
say. It survived what followed, but no
sooner had he taken It than tbe pan
ther revived, tore himself loose and
went for the photographer. Somehow
the man escaped, but tbe camera was
sent flying, and. disconcerted by bis
encounter with It, the panther turned
and made for tbe nearest tree, op
which he went as quickly as a mon
key. Now, the tree was crowded with
Interested spectators, and for three or
four strenuous seconds (until the pan
ther was shot) we enjoyed a spectacle
of natives dropping to earth with loud
thuds like ripe plums from a Jungle
plum tree as tbe panther approached
them. Wide World Magazine.
Bismarck and His Dog.
Sultan. Prince IMsmarck's favorite
boarhonnd, attacked a passing rail
road train and was cut to pieces. Bis
marck's grief over the dog's agonies
was such that bis son Herbert tried to
lead hlra away, but tbe prince would
not go. "No. I cannot leave blm like
this." Then, when the dog's suffer
ings were over, Bismarck wiped his
eyes and murmured: "Our Teuton
forefathers showed benevolence In
tbelr religion. They believed they
would find In the hunting grounds of
tbelr paradise all tbe dogs that had
been their faithful comrades here be
low. I wish I could believe that."
During my school days I met tbe
late Professor Prout, who was as full
of fun as be was of musical lore. It Is
said that at a wedding at which the
late Dublin professor was presiding at
tbe organ he played the happy couple

A SAM0AN FISHING BEE.
Trapping the Game With a Leaf Chain
Halt a Mile Long.
A Samoa n (tailing bee Is a unique
sight to wlfneMt. Cocoa nut leuie are
gathered lu abundance and eecured,.
doubled and tripled, end to eud. to

appearance and about three feel In di
ameter. These leaf chains are often
woven to a length of half a mile.
When tbe chain Is complete all tbe
men of that particular villHge turn
out en masse with their "puopuos." or
Samoa o canoes.
Wben Ibe tide Is high the chain Is
stretched across some convenient
place, supported by natives lu tbelr
paopaos or simply wading where
the shallowness will permit. Tbe co
coa out setne Is then submerged and
slowly forced shoreward, tbe prickly
points driving the fish before them.
Wben tbe point Is reached where tbe
chain can rest upon the bottom and
still protrude slightly from tbe water
the natives after securing the ends to
tbe beach retire and wait for tbe tid
to recede, leaving the fish high and
It is often found that large fish are
driven and caught In this manner,
but since tbey are capable of Jumping

Handel as a Child.
George Frederick Handel, tbe son of
a Saxon barber and valet, was only
five years old wben bis "Angers wooed
