1 had one of the greatest pleasures
of my whole life on the day when
some hunters who had been out on my
account brought in a young gorilla
alive. I cannot describe the emotions
with which I saw the struggling little
brute dragged into the village: all the
hardships 1 endured in Africa were re
warded in that moment. It was a little
fellow between two and three years
old, two feet and six inches in length,
and as fierce and stubborn as a grown
animal could have been
l!y the hunters' a count, they were,
goine. live in number, to a villa'irencar
the coast, and walking very silently
through the forest when tliey hoard
what they immediately recognized as
tho cry of a young gorilla for its I
mother" The forest was silent. It I
was about noon, and they immediate
ly determined to follow the cry. I'rcs-
mtly they heard it again. (tun in j
hand, the brave fellows crept noise
lessly toward a clump of wood, where
the ' baby gorilla evidently was. j
The knew the mother would be near, j
and there was a likelihood that tho
male. th. most dreaded of all, might
be there too. Hut they determined to
risk everything, and if possible, to take
the young one alive knowing what a
iov it would bo lor mo. 1 resi ntly they :
perceived the bush m iving, anil crawl
ing a little further on in dead silence,
fcean.0 y broa.hiug with evoitement,
they behold whal h s seldom been
seen, oven by the no ros a young
gorilla, seated on the ground, eating
some berries that grow close to the
earth. A few feet further on sat tho
mother, also eating the same fruit.
Instantly they made ready to lire,
and none too so.m, for tho old female
saw theai as they raised their guns,
and the had to pull niggers without
delav. llaimilv, they wounded her
mortally, and she fell.
The young ono,
liearinir the noise of the trims, ran to
his mother, hiding his face and f in
bracing her body. The hunters im
mediately rushed toward tin; two, hal
looing with joy as they ran on. Hut
this roused the little one, who instantly
let go his mother and ran to a small
tree, which he climbed with agility,
where he sat and roared at them
The hunters were now perplexed how
to get at him: m one eared to run tho
chance of being bitten by the savage
little least, and shoot it they would
not. At last they cut down the tree,
and as it fell, dexterou ly threw a cloth
over the head of the young monster,
and thus gained t ine to secure it while
it was blinded. With all these precau
tions, o ic of them received a severe
bite on the hand; another had a p eco
taken out of his leg.
As the little brute, though so dimin
utive, and the merest baby forage, was
astonishingly strong, and by no means

we built a bamboo house, with the

three years old. fullv able to walk
alone, and possessed for its aje of most

Its greatest length proved to le two
feet six inches. Its face and hands
were very black; eyes not so much
sunken as in the adults.
The hair of the strange creature be
gan at the eyebrows and rose to tho
crown, where it was a reddish brown.
It came down the sides of the face
in lines to the lower jaw, much as our
Ward grows. The upper lip was cov
ered with short coarse hair; The lower
lip had longer hair. Tho eyelids wore
very slight and thin: eyebrows straight,
and three-quarters on an inch long.
The gorilla at once began to brood
over tho mprisonnient. It grew sick
ly and feroeuous when an body went
near its cage. Finally it becani sullen
and refused to take the us al meals;
all manner of means was tried to make
it eat. but it tinally died, a suicide from

Pretty Mrs. May, wife of Captain
May, of the barge .senator Hlood a lum
ber barge plying between Chicago and
lake ports, proved more than a match
for a gang of I'liion sailors at Chicago
the other day.
The Hlood lay at an elevator, when
John Hums and .lames .lones, walking
delegates of the Seaman's union, came
on board with the intention of taking
oil' the crew and compelling them to
join tho union. lien tho captain
saw the walking delegates ho
told his wife to go into tho
cabin and got his gun. With
out a mi uto's hesitation she did as re
quested and soon stood on doc ready
to defend the crow to the last. In the
meantime the walking delegates had
convinced tho orew that work at Si

which they were then receiving, and
the sailors had agre -d to ioiu tho
union. They throw their baggatre
over the side of the boat and prepared
"If you go ashore I'll shoot you!"
Mrs. May exclaimed to the mate, as ho
started to go over tho schooner's side.
This stopped him, but one of tho sail

hands, jumped overboard and swam to
the other side of tiie river. Walking
Delegate Hums then took the gun out
of Mrs. May's hands and seized her
wrists. Mrs. May rained blows upon
Hums' neck and head, begging him all

the crow seemed certain to desert the

IN COLD BLOOD.
KlIHim ot It. I. Calvin, by John G.
A sensational tragedy was enacted
at Oakland, t'al., the other day. John
(i. Howell, tho well-known politician
shot and killed H. I. I uivhi, a young
man of good reputation who in vain
sought the hand of tho former's
daughter in marriage, Calvin and
Miss Howell were engaged three
years ago, when for some reason she
hud icnly discarded him. Tho former
made several attempts at a reconcilia
tion, but without success. Tho girl's
father naturally objected to these ad
vances. The two met on the evening
of the tragedy. Colvin expressed a do-
sire to marry the girl. Suddenly How

ell said, "Hold up your hands,"
lirmg. He tired three shots, all taking
eirect. After the first (olvin begged
for mercy, but Howell continued shoot

then surrendered to the police. Tho
ufl'air created n big sensation on the

I was taking a moderate chop in a
Sixth avenue restaurant. The waiters ,
were negroes, and from the time 1 went
in I had looked at the head waiter with
interest. Ho was an elderly innn, with
the patient, subdued, gentle courtesy
that told a story of "befo' do wall,"
and that affected the character of the
very wrinkles in his ancient, well
brushed dross coat. He established,
or rather ho showed his willingness to '
establish, relations of an ideally inti
mate character with the patrons of the
place, utterly servant like, ami yet pre
pared to note your tastes and eater to (
them with the devotion of friendship.
When I was half through my meal
two young women with tho air of
ladies entered and sat down near 1110.
1 could not help overhearing their talk,
quiet as it was. and it soon appeared
that they belonged to tlio ever ineroas-
ing army of girl bachelors that huvo
taken the town. They were students
at the Art league.
The old head waiter stood nearby;
then ho came and changed tho glass of
celery for a fresher ono. Then ono of
the young women asked him to have a
certain window lowered at the top. lie
sent some one to do it, and then said
to one of the girls, rearranging the table
a little nervously, in his soft, old voice,
"Keiiso me, but I've been hoping
you'll excuse me since tlio llrst night
you ennio in, if 1 asked you what paht
of the south do you come Pom?"
"Me?" said the girl pleasantly. "1
come from Tennessee. I suppose you
know I was sous lie'n by the way I talk?"
"Yes. '111; yes, '111." the old man said
hastily, taking tho plates from fho
waiter in charge and speaking with an
odd effect of Hurry. "My young niis
t'oss she marry down in Tennessee. She
wjis one ob do Kentucky l'rontices."
He stopped abruptly and looked at tho
girl, and sho w as staring at him. "She
marry ono 00 do Tennessee Sinclairs,"
"Why, that was my mother!"
"She was my young mist'ess," said
tlio old man.
The girl held out hor hand to him.
"Why, my mother always loved her
old people so much," she said, tho tears
springing to her eyes. "Sho always
wanted to know w hat becamo of all of
them after the wall, but sho never
could learn much. Now" sho stopped.
Tlio whilom slave was trembling nil
"l'loaso toll please (ell her that Ike,
The girl was looking at him steadfast
ly through a mist of tears. "She's
dead!" sho said.
The old innn leaned hard on a chair
a moment, and then tho habits of a
lifotime of self control and deference to
other people's comfort eamo to his aid;
he stilled the workings of Ins wrinkled
face and took a dish from the waiter
as he camo up, although his hands still
shook a little.
"I'll wait on these ladies," ho said,
and then gave some direction about an
other part of tlio room. He caught tho
proprietor's eye llxed rebukingly upon
him, but he stuck to that table; lie
was going to wait, on those ladies if it
cost him his place.
Things wont on silently for some mo
ments and then he said, as ho brought
a dish that had not been ordered, sotto
voce, "There's nothing hero fit for you,
missy i.s yo named for your inut"
"I thought I knowed you hy tho fa
vor," he added, trying to hinilo his dog
like direction upon her, and then he
took himself oil to u little distance and
stood waiting upon their call.
I was putting on my coat when I
heard tho southern girl, who had been
very silent, say to her friend, "lsuppobo
