The American Kins: of Beasts.
The jaguar has been called the Ameri
can "king of beasts;" and his title to
that rank is less doubtful than that of
his Old World relation, the lion, whose
claim to superior strength, swiftness, and
sagacity, is not only disputed by the ele
phant, but -by the gorilla, the orang
outang, and the rhinoceros, and above
all by the Bengal tiger, who is his match
in strength, and more than his match in
swiftness and cunning. The grizzly bear
of the Rocky Mountains surpasses him
in weight, and, perhaps, in the bone
crunching power of his jaws, but these
advantages are more than offset by the
greater agility and general vigor of the
Governor Pacheco, of California, las
soed an old grizzly in the Contra Costa
Mountains, a lew years ago, and dragged
him home to his mother's ranch; and the
same feat has been repeatedly performed
by other sportsmen of his native State;
but, to use the words of an old Mexican
hunter of my acquaintance, you might
as well try to lariat Old Scratch himself
as an old jaguar.
In the summer of 1S6S a French gun
boat, La Belle Rhone, landed ammunition
and supplies for the Maximilian govern
ment, in the harbor of Sasal, and before
leaviDg the harbor took a fine jaguar on
board, that had been purchased by an
agent of the new zoological garden of
Slarseilles. The brute had been cap
tured in a pitfall in the neighborhood of
Merida, and, being a full-grown and
beautiful specimen, was preferred to dif
ferent tame ones which the citizens of
the town offered for sale, though his
ferocity made it necessary to confine him
in a cage of charca sticks, a species of
wood that does not easily break, but
splinters like bamboo, and resists the
attempt of any animal to gnaw it by
lacerating its gums.
When the cage was brought on board
the captive seemed to know that his re
maining chances of escape were num
bered by minutes, and braced himself for
a last effort. In the moment when his
movable prison was beinj; lowered
through the hatchway, he forced his paw
through the staves, reached out and tore
the shoulder of the nearest sailor, with a
succession of ripping blows. The man
jumped aside, yelling murder, his mates
slipped their grip, and the cage, jaguar
and all, tumbled down fifteen feet,
straight into the hold, and upou a pile of
pig-iron ballast, which fractured its bot
The men stood aghast, and the shrieks,
and the rush of stampeding laborers be
low, confirmed their worst tears; the
jaguar was running at large in the hold
ot the ship.
Ignorant of the ladder and stairway
conveniences, the brute attempted to
regain the superas auras of the deck by
the same road he had come down, and,
after jumping from rafter to rafter,
reached the luminous gate of the upper
world by a desperate leap; and in the
nick of time, for the sailors on deck had
recovered their wits, and were dragging a
trapdoor towards the dangerous hole.
They were letting it down when its edge
on one side came in contact with some
obstacle; a paw was pushed through
from below, a frightful head quickly
after, and, heedless of the bellowed pro
testa of the first mate, two of the men
broke and ran. They returned, one with
a handspike, and the other with a heavy
bucket, but the delay had been fatal ; the
brute had got its second paw through,
and, in spite of a shower of blows, en
larged the opening sufficiently to free the
rest of its body.
A sauve qui petit followed, and the tiger
jumped on deck and stood there for a
second, clarinj; around with bloodshot
eyes. But only for a second; fully con
scious, it seemed, that there was not an
other moment to lose, he used the trap
door as a jumping-board, and cleared
the gunwales with a flying leap.

A French gentleman lately journeyed
to Marseilles, taking with him the body
of his mother-in-law, who had expressed
a wish to be buried in the lamiiy vault
in that city. When he reached Marseilles
and went with the Commissioner of Po
lice to receive the body from the railway
officials, he noticed that the coffin was
not that which he had delivered to them.

The Increased Suicide Rate.
mi. a. it i I
- .uv.vw or
the number of BUicides in this country is
evident on reading the records as
lished in the daily papers. Every day
the dispatches chronicle the suicide of
from three to five persons, whose promi
nence or the circumstances ot whose
death make the announcement of general
interest. During one month of the pres
ent year the weekly average of such sui
cides was over twenty, and possibly the
average has been nearly as great for all
the months. The reported cases take in
all grades of society, and include young
people as well as old; people prosperous
and in good health as well as people
disappointed and sick.
A correspondent of The Inter Ocean ex
presses his opinion that the increase in
the suicide rate is owing to the publica-
tion of the particulars of every case of I
suicide, and the throwing about the act,
in so many instances, the atmosphere of
martyrdom or heroism. Believing that
the publication of such cases exercises an
nnwholesome influence ou persons of
morbid imagination, leading them to
adopt, for the sake of notoriety, the meth-
ods of the suicide, this correspondent asks
that all suicide items be omitted, at least
., n .i:: t mi. t.
This approximates to a theory of sui-
cide that has many advocates. As a wav-
ward and disappointed boy takes a mel
ancholy satisfaction in doing "something
that will make him sick, and picture the
remorse and grief of his parents when
they see him sick unco d-;ath, so it is ar
gued that a person suffering from disease
or worried by-disappointment and trou
ble, turns to a resort that promises relief
from all, and to an act that, while it
stops all reproaches, arouses the sympa
thy of friends and appeals to the charity

I O I
who nave wronged him. A man who
thinks he has not been understood or ap
preciated, is apt to fancy that his sud

open the eyes of the world to the talent
and ability that was allowed to perish
with, him and, animated by this thought,
he takes his revenge on the public by an
act Which he hopes will tear their hearts
The letters left bv mauv suicides fchow I
that in some such spirit they contemplat-
eu fceu-uesirucuon. utneis write as
though they were siaply tired of life,
aud disgusted with their own infirmities.
Others, again, write not at all, but carry
ail clue as to motive with them into the
beyond. While the . public looks upon
suicide as cowardly, it is easy for the
person who has determined on suicide to
convince himself that his act is in some
seuse heroic. Certain it is that such
thinking on suicide makes men mad, aud
in seeking causes for the increased rate of
sell-destruction, we may find the princi
pal one in the tact that w ith the change
in public opinion tovv.ard the suicide has
come a disposition to dwell more on the
romantic aud peculiar features of suicide
in the old time the suicide was counted
in the list of outcasts. The act itself re
ceived the severest condemnation of the
church, and was looked upou with hor
ror by the people. There was iu pub
lic print aud common conversation no dis
position to excuse and no tendency to
justify the act of an array of causes, or
by enlarging upou the troubles and
trials of the deceased. There was no en
couragement to dwell on the subject in
secret or public, but popular sentiment,
custom, aud tradition all were so many
influences to direct men s minds away
Irom the subject. The sentiment in the
churches, the attitude of the church it
self, and the feeling among the people at
large, all have changed. There is now

sideration lor the person who commits

dlltCting public thought to such occur-
rence, having greatly increased, are used
without scruple. In this change of pub
lie sentiment we may find one reason for
the increase in the suicide rate.
(supplementary- to this is the fact that
suicides find -apologists and defenders in
many brilliant and erratic writers. An
article is published written years ago by
John M. Binckley (who is t-aid to have
committed suicide a few days since)
which is in effect a strong plea for chari
table judgment on the suicide. If Mr

carefully selected, roasted, eronnd and compressed after a formula which at once fixes an t permanently re

acid (or astringent pronerty) which lose nearly if not quite all their virtues before they retch the table of
the consumer. In any of the old methods of preparing coffee for immediate ue. This fact is well understood
by experienced coffee men, and to supp'y the unavoidable deficiencies, cniccory. stale bread, rve. certain
barks and other foreign substances have neeu added, in the way of adulteration, until now the people scarce

Hving given your Compressed Coffee a thorocgh
trial, with the happiest resuts, I would say that, ia
richness ami de'icacy of flavor, it surpasses anythinc
we have ever used. It is cheapi-r than other cofiee
because of its greater strength and its extraordinary
keeping qualities, w hich woud make it very desira
ble to small consumers. While the Compressed Coffee
can be hart we shall uce no other.

Mr. A. P. Adams:
Having been a lover and user of coffee for the past
twenty years, and having tried ,nearly everything In
the line of coffee during that time, I can safely say
that I consider your coffee superior to any that I have
ever used: there is a delicacy of flavor and richnesa
to your coffee that I have never bee a able t obtain la
other brands of coffee. Yours, re'peetfu'ly,
Thomas J. Johnston.

coffee used up (icAicA is in the bean) I will use your
Compressed, as it Is economical, and of a niot-t deli
cious flavor. Georgk F. Bcnker,

Mr. A. P. Adams:
Sir: I have tried yonr Compressed Coffee, and with
out qualification whatever, pronounce It tiellciuu. I.
consider it the bachelor' boon, for it is altcay read,
eatl; and quickly made, and will not deteriorate by
exposure. Yours, truly,
