The Man-Eater's Meal.
PROFESSOR TAPP'S LAST TUSSLE "WITH THE
Pro. R. H. Tapp, the celebrated Amer
ican horse-tamer, commenced a "week
ago to tame the Petaluma Man-eater, as
described in last Sunday's Chronicle, and
has every day since given public exhibi
tions of his process and progress in a
temporary amphitheaterHn the rear of the
Kecord btables, on Market street, oppo
site Seventh. Yesterday, however, the
Man-eater changed the programme, and
attempted to tame Tapp in so effective
a way that Tapp emerged sorely wound
ed, and only by a miracle with his life
xne iuan-eaxer, wnose otner name is
Cogniac, is a dark dapple gray Norman
stallion, seven years old, weighing in
nghting trim loou pounds, foaled in
Normandy, France, imported two years
ago . to Illinois, and subsequently
bought by Joseph "Wooden, the Norman
horse-breeder of Petaluma, and brought
to tms aute, and declared bv horsemen
to be the finest horse of the breed ever
brought to America. Until brought to
Illinois ho had been an exceptionally
genue animal, out, having indiscreetly,
and probably plavfullv. bitten out
couple of pounds of an Illinois groom, he
was so injudiciously and
That, as Deacon Duncan would say, he
experienced a chancre of heart, all his
latent deviltry was developed, and he
has ever since been the terror of all
whom necessity have thrown into his
company. "With the exception of occa
sionally eating a hostler he is an invalu
able brute, and Mr. Wooden consigned
him to Mr. Tapp to have him cured of
this sole little foible. Yesterday at 2
o'clock the exhibition commenced in the
presence of about two linudred specta
tors, and progressed till half-past 3,
during which time the horso had been
handled by the Professor, and even
driven to buggy, and appeared perfectly
tractable and to have kind of lost his
appetite for stablemen. After being
unhitched he was crosshobbled by mak
ing a stout rope fast from the fetlock of
his nigh fore leg to that of his off hind
leg, an arrangement which permitted
him to trot, but prevented his galloping
as also his kneeling down, and which is
why Tapp still lives to again try con
clusions with him. The horse stood
near the center of the inclosed circle,
and the Professor about midway be
tween him and the inclosing high bar
ricade, the horse perfectly subdued un
der the eye of commander. Some per
son on a seat in the rear of Tapp asked
him a question, and for one instant
Tapp removed his eye and half turned
his head to answer. In that instant the
SPRANG rPON HIM LIKE A TIGER.
There wa3 a yell of horror from the
speotators as the horse caught the man
up by the clothes at the small of his
back, shook him as a terrier does a rat
and flung him through the air against
the inclosing planking. Eefore Tapp
could regan his feet the ferocious mon
ster was again upon him, seizing him
with his teeth by the left shoulder and en
deavoring to kneel down upon him,
which is his last and most approved
KILLING HIS KEEPERS.
This the cross-hobble prevented him
from doing, and the cool Professor,
with his shoulder still in the cruel grip
of the monster's jaws, struggled to his
feet and with his right hand so held the
bit as to prevent as far as possible the
successful working of the horse s jaws.
The crowd was intensely excited. Mr.
Wooden seized a long pole and poked
it between the halter and the horse's
lower jaw and still further retarded the
biting. The friends of Tapp called for
a gun, but there was no gun, and what
is remarkable in a collection of 200 Cal
ifornians, no one had a revolver, or the
murderous brute would have been shot
dead instantly. The hor6e and Tapp
continued fighting half way round the
riog, "Wooden on the seats outside still
hampering the former's efforts with the
pole. The spectators on the front seats
also did all they could to distract the
Men-eater's attention, one lady seizing
the crutch of a man sitting next her and
beating the horse over the head with it.
By the aid of these distractions Tapp
was enabled by degrees to draw his arm
through the horse's jaws, the horse
CHEWING IT IMPARTIALLY
As it slipped away from him, until fin
ally it was entirely withdrawn. The
crowd shouted to Tapp to jump for his
life, but the plucky trainer called for
his whip, and with his mangled left arm
dangling by his side, so tickled the fet
locks of Cogniac that that enterprising
animal was again in what Tapp fondly
calls subjection. Last evening the
trainer was in the stable office with a
friend pouring an odorous liniment
over his bandaged arm, and the Man
eater, with all his evil passions inflam
ed with the taste of blood, was romping
around his prison and eagerly reaching
up for a mouthful of any timid specta
tor that ventured near enough to look
down at him. The people will continue
to look forward with interest to the
solution of the problem of whether Tapp
will tame the Man-eater or the Man
eater tame Tapp. S. F. Chronicle.
A Tremendous Girl. This child, a
girl, was 4 years of age on the 26th day
of last March. She weighs 100 pounds,
measures eighteen inches across the
chest and is four feet eight and one-half
inches high. There is a thick growth of
hair covering her entire body, while
her face is covered with whiskers, in
cluding a moustache. Up to about
eighteen months ago she was a healthy
girl. About that time her body became
very hot and was covered with u. heavy
perspiration which lasted for several
days. The odor occasioned by the per
spiration was very offensive, and within
fifteen minutes after being cleanly
dressed her body and clothes would be
come saturated as if by some black-colored
liquid. "When the perspiration
eased the hair began growing, only
leaving the soles of her feet and the
palms of her hands bare. Her voice at
tained a remarkable depth, sounding as
though it come from the inside of a bar
rel. Her strength is astonishing. She
can carry her 10-year-old sister under
her arm with apparent ease, and her
mother states that the child actually
deas not know her own strenglh. The
statements herein made are strictly
true, and, if necessary, the testimony
of the child's parents and many people
living in the neighborhood can be pro
duced for corroboration. Franklin

man who stops his team on the cross

A Mystery at the Towers of Silence.
A sensation has been caused in the
Parsee community by the disclosure of
rumors, which have been circulating in
Bombay for the past three weeks, with
regard to certain mysterious circum
stances that took place at the Towers of
Silence on June 23. Early on the morn
ing of the zdd a Parsee died, and three
hours afterward his body was exposed to
the ivultures in Tower Ao. 1, locally
known as KapisKhao's DoTchma (a tow
er) . In the afternoon another body was
taken to the towers, and it was decided
to expose it in Kapis Khao s tower also
The funeral procession proceeded
thither and had taken the formal fare
well of the dead, which is customary,
while the corpse bearers (nassassalars)
were opening the iron doors of the
tower. The nassassalars pushed the door
open, looked in, saw something unusu
al, and then closed the door again. De
scending the steps they told the mourn
ers that tho body could not be exposed
there, but must be carried to another
tower. They were questioned about
their singular proceedings, but chose
only to give evasive and rudo answers.
The procession was formed again and
moved on with the body to tower No. 2,
where it was duly exposed. One of the
mourners suspected that all was not
right, and he went to the Sigree or
prayer-house and watched the corpse
bearers. He saw them re-enter Tower
No. 1, where they remained for half an
hour. The suspicion dawned upon the
watchers that the corpse-bearers had
observed some one alive (probably the
Parsee who had been exposed that
morning) in tower No. 1, and had re
turned hitherto murder him, in accord
ance with a well-known Zoroastrain
superstition that no one should be al
lowed to return into the world from a
Tower of Silence, otherwise he will bo
the cause of dreadful plagues. He com
municated his suspicions to a number of
people, and soon a knowledge of the
affair spread throughout the Parsee com
munity. Although it was exciting the
Parsees to the very cores, whole sec
tions believing that the nassassalars had
committed the dreadful crime of which
they were suspected, singularly enough
the native press studiously observed
silence upon the subject, and it was not
until the gist of anonymous letters which
had reached a Bombay paper were put
into shape that the conduct of the nas
sassalars was openly discussed.
It has been pointed out on behalf of
the Panchayet (five individuals who are
the recognized heads of tho Parsee com
munity) that the whole story has arisen
from the insolence of the corpse-bearers
in refusing to give a prompt explanation
of the reason why they had opened No.
Tower and then shut it up again. Had
they said at first that the body had fallen
against the door, and that they did not
like to push open the door further lest
the mourners should ue shocked by see
ingthe mutilated corpse, the excitement
that has since arisen would, the IJan
chavet believe, never have taken place
This explanation pleases some of the
Parsee community, and merely excites
the ridicule of others, who will have it
that the story told by the corpse-bearers
was onlv an afterthought invented to
save them from the consequences of
their guilt. The Panchayet have point
ed out that chains are hung round the
inside of the towers to enable persons
who may come to life again to escape;
but all the same, young and enlighten
ed Parseeism, as distinguished from
orthodox Zoroas trianism, believe that
the corpse-bearers still have instruc
tions to let no one escape alive from the
Towers of Silence. London f t lobe.
A Sleep -"Walking Mother Stop
ped ON THE WAY TO HerCHILD'S GRAVE
A sinerular. but a tender and a beau
tiful incident occurred on the North
side of Chicago recently. Living at No,
202 Erie street, is a lady whose name is
Mrs. Robert. Some months ago she
laid awav to rest, under the grasses of
Graceland Cemetry. her little boy. to
whom she had been fondly attached
around whose memory still twines her
holiest affections. Frequently since the
death and burial of her boy she has
gone to his grave to scatter over it fresh
flowers. .Now and then sho weaves a
cluster in some curious shape and leaves
it there at twilight for the dews to moist
en while she is away. It is one of tho
misfortunes of this lady that she is a
somnambulist, and on several occasions
she had been detained as she was leav
ing her home late in tho night. One
night lately she eluded the attention of
any one about the premises, and had
gone as far as No. 967 North Clerk
street, in her night dress, before she
was noticed. At this number resides
Mrs. Mosher, who chanced to be at the
window when she saw the figure glide
by almost swiftly, the long hair falling
upon the shoulders and form of the
strange looking sight. In most women,
and in some men, such a scene would
have caused the blood to stand still and
cool. But Mrs. Mosher, guessing what
it was, summond her husband, who
pursued the moving figure until lie held
the form in his own hands and escorted
her into the house, where she remained
during the night, and on the following
morning Mrs. Mosher had her sent to
her house on Erie street in a carriage.
When Mr3. Robert was found she had
under her arm a bundle of child's
clothes, and in the other hand a collec
tion of flowers. She said she had gone
to sleep at home and dreamed that her
little boy had come back to her and
took her by the hand and asked her to
go with him to his grave. She arose
and took his clothes and the flowers, as
stated, and was found, in her 6leep,
hastening to the spot in the silent city of
the dead where her own treasure was

they were to be united. All promised
well, and the news came that the ship
was returning in safty, and Miss Mul

welcome, as in "My Mother and I," the
successfnl merchant. The vessel came
into sight, and on the deck stood the
young man, who appeared overjoyed to
see waiting him the beloved of his heart.
They exchanged greetings, and, nun

with a characteristic firmness of a wom
an, after a year she became Mrs. George
Lillie Craik, and a happv wife she is, al
though twenty years older than her hus
band. The blessing of children is de

ample satisfaction for tho regret.
One morning Mrs. Craik was walk
ing out, and found a little baby tying
in the roadside, forsaken by its mother.
A basket of linen was beside it which
indicated that it was not of poor parent
age. She stopped to look at it, and
then began to long to have it for her
own. She ran home to her husband
and told him, and made him, though re
luctantly,-accompany her back, and

his wife to take it. As foundling babies

and no party is so delightful to.her that

One of the latest and most remarka
ble teachings of astronomical science is
that the moon, when full, is so intense
ly hot that no creature known to us
could long endure contact with her
heated surface. The reasoning in this
case is that the surface of tho moon is
exposed during the long lunar day,
lasting a fortnight of our terrestial time,
to the rays of the sun which are as pow
erful as tho3u that give us our daily
heat; and without an atmosphere to tem
per the sun's heat as ours does not, in
deed, by impeding the passage of the
suns rays, but by bearing aloft the cloud
veil which the sun raises from our oceans
the moon's surface must becoino in
tensely hot long before the middle of
of the lunar day. Undoubtedly the
want of atmosphere causes the moon's
heat to bo rapidly radiated away into
space. It is the earth's atmosphere
which causes a steady heat to prevail on
its surface; and at the summits of lofty
mountains where the atmosphere is
rare, although the midday is intense,
yet so rapidly does the heat pass away
that snows crown forever the mountain
heights. Yet. although the moon's heat
must pass away even more rapidly, this
does not prevent the heating of the
moon's actual surface. Accordingly,
Herschel has pointed out, as a fact be
yond a doubt, that the moon s surface
must be heated at lunar midday or,
rather, at the time of lunar mid-heat,
corresjjonding to about two o clock in
our afternoon to a degree probably
surpassing the heat of boiling water.

The bile has a three-fold part assigned
to it by the great manager, Nature. It assists in
the digestive process, acts aa a coloring agent of
the blood, and is essential to the evacuative
function. When the liver grows torpid, com
plete chaos ensues in the stomach and bowels ;
the bile is injected into the circulation in large
quantities and constipation and indigestion are
produced. Pains under the right shoulder blade
and through the right side, headaches, vertigo,
yellowness of the skin, furred tongue and nau
sea, also follow. But these and other symptoms
of biliousness, and the disorders which accom
pany it, are entirely removed by Hostetter's
Stomach Bitters, that benign rectiher of organic
disturbance and remedy for physical weakness.
Intermittent and remittent lever, urinary and
uterine troubles, rheumatism, gout and other

LARGE NUMBER OF MEN AND OVER
half of the women suffer from Anemy or Thin
; that Is to say, that the quantity of red glob
which predominate In a healthy and vigorous
t. is in their cases too small. Tue basis of tnese
red globules Is IRON, which their Internal ecr-uomv
fails to furnish in sufficient quantity.
The basis of this new and wonderful medicine Is
also I HON, which is easily assimilated by the sys
tem, and gives to the Blood that vitality and stieugth
which it so much wants, and which Is so inaNpensa
ble to that real enjovruent of life, commonly called
I'EanxTi.v (ioou JI ea i.Tir.
ne of the great qualities which will irBKe t!.!
precious preparation largely popular Is that on
the Blood Las obtained the quantity of Iron It need's
it will not absorb auy more of it: there js theiefo
no fear of bad consequences to be euteiuUii.d
should a person use it wlien not needed.
Therefore, if you perceive any of the symptoms
above described, or in any way have the li-ast cause
to think that your Blood is thin, do not hesitate a
moment to have recourse to our UK1) BLOOD. i d
stick to it until you feel a radical change; under i.n
influence you will perceive your cheeks granually
redden ; your energy, moral and physical, will be
(strengthened, and you will discover what a good
thing It li to live when one is healthy.
Anemy or Thin Blood Is not only a disease by !t
self, but it predisposes one to any other oiseases,
prevalent or under whose influence you mav be
unconsciously thrown why, then, not get rid at
once of such a terrible enemy ?
We owe this great discovery to Dr. Bartkowrkv.
a distinguished French Chemist, who. under certain
considerations, has entrusted the undersigned with
his secret to act for him as his Agent sor the Lrniu?d
N. B. Unlike any other preparation, this do- s not
