Boston Weekly Globe (Newspaper) - January 27, 1891, Boston, Massachusetts The Boston weekly Globe tuesday january 27, 1891. The messenger boys strike. Continuation of Flora Haines Loughead a charming 8tory. In. In Der air est. W Akter at once 200 Active to hat in boy. Apply at the office of the May District company to. A a St. In the fourth Day of the strike this notice j appeared in All the daily papers and was 1 fam Ted in Tho windows of Hie main and Branch offices of the Bay District company. The news of this advertisement caused great exc fitment in the Camp of i the strikers. Quot we must do something St once or the company will get our places tilled and then i Goodby to the Hope of getting Justice or anything Cise a cried the boy who brought in the announcement. Quot just let a few boys step into our places and pop them Over the first Call they get. Mccracken s neck might have been wrung before he compromised them by such an outrageous Antic. A i la g you will believe sir that none of the other boys had the slightest idea of Jimmy a nonsense. He has t got commonsense that Little Rascal. And As for my engineering the strike that s just what i came to see you about and to Tell you that if you Are Down on the boys because you think i am leading them on you do them a great injustice. The strike Isnit the outgrowth of any spite against the company. They Stock because they honestly thought they were not fairly treated. I told them they ought not to have made me their president they ought no to to have taken me in at All and if you re Down on them on my account i la resign the boy stopped out of breath and coughed a Little a dry hard cough that seemed to exhaust without bringing Relief for lie pressed his hand to his Side for a moment. Thel superintendent looked steadily at him and Royal could see no signs of relenting in the Many a Stern face. Indeed the boy fancied that his usual ironical smile played about his lips for an instant. Rung w the the cries of abandoned women and the hoarse shout of Drunken men was even greater than her misery at seeing him there. A Mother you ought not to have come. Why did you Comers he protested. A i told the boys to keep you away to Tell you i was perfectly comfortable.�?�,a perfectly comfortable a she looked around the wretched cell inhaled the murky air. Listened to the ravings from the drunk cell and shuddered. Quot How can i go away and leave you Here you must come Home tonight. Your hands Are cold and your head is hot. You ought to have a warm hath and he tucked up in bed with hot bottles to your feet. And that Hurt to your head a a a Mere flesh Cut Mother. The police surgeon sewed it up. He says it does no to amount to anything. Why Mother you baby me so. In be got to begin being a Man some time. And men must take knocks and bruises All sorts. Its the Fortune of War. this brought a smile to her face As he meant it should but she did not leave him until the turnkey impatiently told her that it was time to lock up for the night. Royal slept by fits and starts that night. And awoke in the morning aching from head to foot and with a queer catch mins breath. The cold water they had. Brought him to Wash his face and hands chilled him through and through. He could not Swallow a morsel of the dry bread or Coffee they brought him but he managed to crawl upstairs Ite Hind the other prisoners and to stumble upon one of the dirty wooden benches in the police court. When his Case was called there was a whispered conversation Between two of the court officials. Quot dismissed for Lack of prosecution said the clerk of the court. Royal neither heeded nor understood. He had been searching the lobby with half blinded eyes and among the crowd of spectators he thought he saw a gentle Motherly face. A a done to you hear what he says a dismissed for want of you can go a a d the Bailiff in a loud tone opening a Low wooden Gate that separated the prisoners pen from the main court room. A come along. out a High pitched voice. A a ainu to they shown the White Feather though. Who earns for their old jailers and judges dynamite so a Quot order in court a roared the Bailiff in stentorian tones. Quot take care. Or some of you youngsters will be brought up for contempt of court a admonished the judge. Royal Rose from his seat holding fast to the railing passed through the Gate and took an unsteady step or t to in the direction of the anxious Mother face. Half Way ing through those far off lauds that the boy bad visited to often in imagination. The House was full of tokens and remembrances sent Home from those journeys and they were so wonderful that they brought supreme satisfaction to Young Stevenson. Here were pictures idols fans carved boxes of sandalwood All sent from the land of legend Abd Romance and they could Only by the burned Bones of the same fish. The remedies for Tapu sickness Are Only known by the old men of toe tribes who preserve the mystery with jealous care and the belief in the Power of the spell is so great that death usually follows unless the Charm is removed.,.but Stevenson has found in these lands something More valuable than the pleasures which Mav he had from a study of the lives of a strange people however interesting or. Stevenson scamp at Gilbert islands. He actually seen and touched. Was not this after All better than mines of wealth existing in the imaginations Only the boy became a youth wont to College in the City of his birth and when he reached manhood set about the business of writing books for All through his childhood and youth he had been used to writing Down his thoughts and fancies and dreams Aud the writing of books was hut a Sten farther. Stevenson has travelled much and his books Are full of pictures of life seen by one whose own experience very often is a part of the picture for he is always fond of entering into new paths. See if any More Fellers ill hurry to take their places a shouted Jimmy Mccracken and a crowd of his sympathizers hailed this daring proposal with Hearty cheers. Quot silence a commanded the Young president. Quot done to let us demean ourselves or injure the cause boys by any such acts. What to you think we ought to do John Pembroke a a yes what did the Iron moulders do a jeered Jimmy. John Pembroke a face flushed hut he did not allow himself to be betrayed into any exhibition of ill temper. Quot the Iron moulders made a Success of their strike and they made everybody respect them by the Way they managed it a he replied. Quot i done to think we could do better than to follow their example. The foundry men tried to fill their places with workmen they brought Here from the East a a scabs a yelled Jimmy Mccracken. A yes a scabs a assented John Quot or they would have been a scabs if they bad kept on working in places that honest men had left. But the most of them did t. The strikers had pickets stationed just As near the foundries As they dared to stand and they talked with the new men when they came along to go to work. Quot then we must Post our pickets at once a said the president. Sentinels were therefore posted on every Corner in the Vicinity of the Bay District office and every boy who came along and who appeared to be aiming for that office was at once taken in hand by the strikers Quot is that All a he said. Quot yes sir Good the Bov stepped out and closed the door behind him. As he passed through the second of the Little Glass offices in front of the superintendents he suddenly grew dizzy and caught hold of a chair to steady himself. A Man who was writing at a desk there observed the action and recognized the boy. He left his High Stool and came softly toward the lad. An ugly scow l on his face. Quot what have you been doing or saying in the superintendent s office you Young scoundrel a he demanded. Royal viewed him silently his headway singing and his sight was not very Clear. Tins w As Makin the Man detested by All the boys the cowardly Ruffian who had struck his inoffensive Little Comrade the Man who always turned a pleasant face and an affable manner to his superiors but who was to Tho boys the Symbol of All that was brutal and underhand. A what have you been saying to the superintendent. Do you hear you d better own up to taking that Money. You try to get any one else into trouble about it and you la wish you a never been a slow recollection dawned upon Royal. It was Makin who handed him the letter from which the Money had been missing Makin who had left his own office and desk and had been handling the letters left for delivery As the boys had often seen him. A sudden suspicion awakened in the boy s mind he was not in a condition to weigh ids words or to measure their effect. Quot i believe you took it yourself a he exclaimed. Makin gave a Savage the growl of an angry dog and seized the boy by his Collar to fling him from the room. Royal fell striking ids head against the Iron Safe which stood in the room cutting an ugly Gash. The indignation caused by this outrageous attack or the sudden loss of blood acted magnetically upon the boy. In an instant he was on his feet making a mad Rush for or. And mrs. Stevenson with two natives. Makin gave a Savage cry. I. Ill a across the floor he pressed his hand to his Side with a sudden exclamation and fell senseless to the floor. Everybody pressed Forward. The judge himself came Down from his canopied seat and hastened to the boys Side. Quot i done to think there would have been much Here to prosecute if the plaintiff had appeared a he soberly remarked. To be continued Robert Louis Stevenson. His past and present by Henrietta Christian Wright. Some 30 years ago a boy might have been seen wandering about the streets of Edinburgh and watching All that he saw with curious eyes for Edinburgh is a place of Many interests and its streets Are so full of history that they belong quite As much to the past As to the present. Here one May read of wars and Batties and sieges without the Aid of a Book Aud if one is a Scot he reads this Story with great Pride. This boy was a Scot and to Bim Edinburgh seemed the greatest place in the world rivalling Greece or Rome Iii its famous deeds of history. And so he Felt that he had been born to a great inheritance. J this boy Whoso name was Robert i mis Stevenson comes of a race of Lighthouse builders and it was a pleasant circumstance of his boyhood to know that every night the sea lights along Many coasts flashed out across the Ocean paths just As steadily and surely As Tho night itself came and that this was because they had been planned wisely and honestly and so were an Honor to the name he bore. From the Hooks he loved when a boy we find that he sojourned often with Robin Hood and his merry men in Sherwood Forest and that the life of the Jolly outlaw had a great relish for him and that he found it hard often to leave the Greenwood where he was hand in Glove with much and finder and Friar tuck and where he had Many a bout with Little John and even tried his skill with Robin hoods Long Bow. The Quot arabian nights also was a Region of Delight where he wandered with Aladdin. Voyage with sinbad and with his own right hand wrought vengeance upon the 40 thieves. Wonderful adventures he had sentinels Werk posted. My persuaded that in Justice to them and hit of consideration for the cause of labor it Large he should not accept employment it the hands of the company. Three Days after the appearance of this advertisement Royal Champion started Down town with a serious purpose lie had been thinking the situation Over and could arrive at but one answer to several questions that had been puzzling him. Why had the company treated the strikers so scornfully and heart Lessly he passed the pickets on the Street Comers who merely nodded at him As he went by thinking he bad gone Over to inspect the sentinels on the other Side. But he went directly to the Bay District building in at the main Entrance and walked straight through the outer offices and knocked at the superintendents door. A come in a said an impatient voice. Or. Barlow was Busy with his morning mail. A Well who Are you and what do you want a lie asked not unkindly. �?�1 am Royal Quot what the boy we discharged last week a began the superintendent looking very uncomfortable Tor lie remembered the name and expected a scene. A yes sir. The boy you discharged Tor stealing some Money from a letter a Quot of come come that wont do. Its no use to go into that. The facts were Laid before me by the men in the outside office and i can to go behind their evidences y of were Lucky to get off without being prosecuted. I have perfect Confidence Iii the men�?1�?�or. Barlow stopped Short confused by a Udden recollection. Money had been missing since Royal champions discharge. One of the letters before him stated that a considerable sum of Money was missing from a package that bad passed through the company a hands a few Days before. A a Quot i did no to come to talk about that. Sir a a Aid the boy raising Bis head proudly and looking the superintendent full in the Eye. With a manner that it struck the latter might have been very Fine if it had not Todon aed to a convicted thief. I came to speak about the other a that strike that you re engineering Well. How ale you coming on got say More dynamite the genuine article. For a moment to a1, although the Hov Iii the world shared John Pembroke rage and w shed that Jiminy his assailant. Righteous Wrath multiplied not ? in ably designed boy out of the door and discourage him ids slight strength tenfold. Makin who had not had the slightest intention of engaging in a tooth and Nail contest but had merely designed to pitch the when he first visited America he came in an Emigrant ship and crossed to California in an Emigrant Tram for the Sake of the experience and this is Only one instance of Many of the kind. His life now May be said to be a dream come True for he is far from civilization and the beaten paths of travel in the Remote islands of the Pacific islands such As he saw Many a time Iii his Boyish visions. Stevenson s life Iii the South seas has been As varied and interesting As his own roving fancy could wish. He has sailed from Island to Island in his own yacht casting Anchor in Many a strange port and meeting with Many a strange experience. The people of these islands have been redeemed from cannibalism within the memory of living men. Stevenson found a tamed and kindly race grateful for notice generous to the extent of bestowing their last Possession upon a Friend eager for affection and Loyal to the death. Among All the islands Stevenson found the hospitality of these tattooed natives the same and any appearance of enmity would have seemed strange to him. The French Are in Possession of Many of its groups and there Are government schools and courts of Justice held by officers appointed by France. There Are also churches and missions Iii charge of religious orders and priests and Sisters of Charity have been working among the islanders for Many years. The children go to the Mission schools the boys going to one school and the girls to another and As the yearly vacation occurs at different intervals sometimes the girls and boys of the same family do not meet for years. The boys schools Are under the charge of the priests who teach their pupils Reading writing arithmetic and religion a course different indeed from the training of their fathers and grandfathers who were taught Only to Send their arrows with deadly skill into their enemies hearts to guide their boats with Cool courage around the dangerous surf beaten beaches of the islands to guard Tho mysteries of their Savage religion and take part in the bloody ceremonies which signalized a Victory in Battle. It is no w Onder that to the boys who inherit such traditions Reading and arithmetic sometimes seem tame and the Good priests Aro often discouraged at the slow Progress their pupils make the girls Are taught by the Sisters who do not Stop at Reading and writing and prayers. But teach their pupils sewing and embroidery and housekeeping but the Little Mission houses seem often Dull to tile girls and unless she forms a Friendship for some particular sister a girl is always glad to lie free from school life. But although the government of Tho islands and the schools Are under the control of the Whites the natives Are still from coming to the office again found him self unable to do anything but work his Young aggressor toward the Street calling out lustily meanwhile Quot Lake him off take him off he a trying to kill As it chanced they hacked directly into Tho arms of a passing policeman who took the boy into custody at the request of his badly battered victim. This policeman was a Little out of the common sort. Quot in a not looking a he said. A scoot Down the Street and be Quot what Tor a asked the boy. A keep out of Tho Way for a Day or two and the whole tiling la blow Quot i done to want it to blow Over. Do you think id run away of i can to get off honorable i done to want to get off at before night the report had flown Over the City that the Leader of the strike was in jail. A vague Rumor was circulated to the effect that he had been caught in the aet of exploding a giant pow Der Cartridge in the basement of the Bay District building a Rumor which had for its Only foundation the still More intangible report that had been circulated in regard to Jimmy a exploit. Happily the afternoon papers discredited this Story and published a tolerably truthful account of the Aff air for although there had been no witness to the encounter be tween Makin and Royal tile boys peaceable disposition As opposed to the quarrelsome temper of Makin stood him in Good Stead and caused his report of the affair to be generally credited while the Cut Oil his Bead bore out tile truth of his testimony a delegation of strikers hot with indignation at this outrage marched to the City prison and Ware admitted to an interview with their prostrate Leader. Even John Pembroke Felt that this last injustice was beyond endurance. I done to care what happens to the old company now a he cried. Quot i wish a Cyclone would pick it up building superintendent directors and ally and dump them in the Pacific Quot you hold the company accountable Tor the act of one Man. John a insisted Royal bravely. Quot and Don t let an Accident to me ruin the Quot Well perhaps w e wont do anything to the company but just let Makin look out for himself that Sall. I Tell you Royal it la be hard to hold in the boys after All the hardest trial that Royal had to Bear was a visit from his Mother. She threaded the dim foul corridors of tile underground prison a Little gentlewoman if Ever one lived until she came to the Damp cold cell where her boy had been shut up for the night. To Royal the distress of seeing his delicate Mother in the i Onute place where the air a native Canoe. Too with Jack Sheppard and the smuggler and three fingered Jack Aud indeed from the list of books we find that although the boy Stevenson was often called a dreamer yet he had All a healthy boy love of adventure and that bold deeds Aud stirring action had the greatest Charm for him. In speaking himself of the books lie preferred when a boy Stevenson says a for my part i liked a Story to begin wit i an old Wayside inn Wiere toward the close of 17�?, several gentlemen in Oliree cocked hats were playing bowls. Give to a highwayman and i was full to the brim a jacobite would do. But the highwayman was my favorite but outside of books the world was also full of interest to Stevenson who studied it perhaps without know ing it. And found Many things to attract his fancy. When he visited the manse where his Grandfather lived lie delighted in wandering through the old House full of memories of his fathers Brothers and Sisters who had i left Home years before and were now roam strongly bound by their own superstitions and beliefs Ami there is always a native chief and a native Wise Man or priest to keep up the old traditions. One of the strongest of tile native superstitions is that of the Tapu. To Tapu a thing is simply to declare the thing is not to be touched by any person or for any purpose whatever and the ceremony of tapping is regarded As sacred. The Tapu is Laid on anything by the performance of some simple but Mystic rite and the utterance of a spell and the object thus tapped is held in sacred Awe by All Hie native population. A Man in order to preserve his property might Tapu his Grove of Palm Trees and he could then go away and leave them unguarded for no one would dare touch the fruit for he who touches a thing protected by the Tapu lays himself open to a deadly Peni which no one May escape unless he confess his crime if one eat of Coconut or breadfruit that has been tapped he May possibly live if be is treated with the leaves of the tree from which the fruit was stolen otherwise he will surely die in two Days of the Tapu sick Ness which is caused by the working of the spell. Of one eat of tapped fish one can be cured they May be. For Stevenson a quest was for the treasures of health and strength which he had sought often and in vain in other places and which the South sea has Given Nim in fair measure. A in Reward no doubt for the patience with which he has striven and the Fine courage that has Mado his life a Success and his literary career a Triumph in spite of the most serious obstacles that could beset him. For ill health is the prominent dragon that guards the Castle of Fame and this dragon Stevenson has fought and vanquished so completely that we see in his works not even a hint of the struggle but Are led instead by the magic Wand of his Genius into regions new and strange and delightful aim of which he alone is master. Skeletons cheap for Cash. They Are bought and sold like merchandise in new York City imitations for secret society use. New York Herald Quot is Litreal Lotrue a i asked an up town dealer in surgical goods Quot that human skeletons Are bought and sold extensively in the City a the Man hesitated of moment and then replied Quot i done to know that there is any secret about the Trade. It does amount to quite an Industry but we look upon the Purchase or Sale of a Skeleton in the selfsame Light that to regard any other transaction of a business nature. Quot skeletons Are procured in a perfectly legitimate manner a he continued Quot and Are carefully prepared for Market the source of Supply is. Of course from various hospitals and morgues throughout the country. The Bones Are prepared for use by a Long and laborious process and the work of articulating the various parts is conducted by an experienced anatomist. Quot it is not a simple matter to make up a Skeleton from a Heap of dismembered parts except a Man thoroughly understands the human Frame and can fit the various hones to a nicety. Quot when prepared for Sale the skeletons Are bought by academies and schools museums of natural history an i of the dime variety physicians and surgeons and by others who have use for the article either for the purposes of study or to utilize them As attractions for a show. Quot the strangest tiling of All about the business is perhaps due to the fact that in the Skeleton Trade As in every other there is a variety of qualities of tile article and even a base adulteration for what else can a spurious Skeleton be termed Quot an a no. I Skeleton is a valuable addition to any surgeons Cabinet a continued my informant. Quot As such it commands a Good figure in the market�?$300 is the Price demanded for a first class a Case of bom Quot there is another Quality of a Fie Toro Teneous make up formed from the Skull of by the ribs of Dick the right leg and Arm of some other unfortunate and the whole completed by Odd Bones furnished by any number of individuals Quot Tho various members thus arranged by a competent Workman form an excellent Skeleton for a theatrical display or a chamber of horrors. They Are of course of but Little use for purposes of study except As a curiosity illustrating what a Man can do with a Job lot of material. The members thus patched together Are derived from innumerable sources dissecting tables and places of that kind. A of course the composite skeletons thus formed do not command As High a Price As the Simon pure article but if they Are capped with a genuine Skull they Are much More valuable than the imitation variety and will bring at least $150.�?� Quot How about the imitation a i asked. Quot the spurious article Iii the Skeleton Industry a the dealer said Quot is made from compressed paper pulp and other materials which form a compound not unlike papier Madre. Quot these interesting specimens Are in exact imitation of Tho real articles. A they Are used chiefly in the ritual of one of the secret fraternal orders and Are a clarifying enough to terrorize any neophyte into keeping the dreadful secrets of the order. Quot being entirely a product of manufacture they can he made in assorted sizes. They Range in Price accordingly a child a size is sold for $75, an adults for $100, and a heroic size for $150. The Range of Price is entirely arbitrary with the dealer for the skeletons Are really riot Worth $5 apiece. Quot packed in a casket however and suspended by a Silver Hook from the Skull they serve every purpose for the ritual As Well As the genuine article. Quot one of these imitations was recently shipped by a 4th a. Dealer in masonic goods to a Lodge in Lowell mass. Tho Box containing it broke open while in transit and the delightful contents were spilled on the floor of an express office. To to uneducated express Man the article was a real Skeleton and the Story that a crime had been committed was immediately reported to the police and the news was telegraphed Over the country. Quot the facts relative to the manufacture of skeletons came to Light during the investigation which followed the discovery of the contents of the Box in the new England express office. Quot Are there any other varieties of skeletons a i ventured to inquire. A ooh yes a was the reply Quot but they rarely Ever find their Way into Commerce. The doctors watch them too carefully during life and the variety is Only to be met with in some Hospital Cabinet. A they Are the frameworks of people who have in life been sufferers from some Peculiar Bone disease. A a woman now suffering from a curious complaint known As Ackrom Egale is now in one of the City institutions. The disease is one in which the Bones of Tho entire body continue to grow Skull and All. Such a Skeleton would be invaluable to a dealer but we never meet with such a rare surely Commerce i thought As i left the dealer in surgical implements Aud skeletons finds curious channels. The poet restored.

Did no to suit. Street a Smiths Good news Mother Well did you get that situation As office boy Little Sony nope. A what was the matter a a a done to knew. The gent is a Larder and he asked me if i was a Good Whistler and i told him i was the Best Whistler on our Street and he said i do. Guess he must want a Reg Hor feeding the animals. Menu at Central Park menagerie. Funny pelicans and an Alligator which rivals sued snakes like tide its bears want the whole loaf amed As new York City is for its hotels boarding houses and caravans Aries Little is known of the Domestic Economy of one that has More than a National reputation. It is situated in an aristocratic neighbourhood and the Register contains the names of 007 inmates. Only a few bring trunks with them but the same delicate consideration is shown All. There health As Well As their Comfort is studied. The regular life of the inmates accounts for their general Good health. One meal a Day is the Rule but the consumption of victuals nevertheless is enormous. The Bill of fare shows Little variety but what is served is wholesome and there is an abundance of it. The gentlemanly superintendent and solicitous physician Are combined in the person of or. William a. Conklin. His hotel is the Central Park menagerie and his guests Are representatives of every classification in the animal kingdom. The following gives you an idea of the Quantity of nourishment they take in the course of a year of Hay 307,801 pounds 080 bushels Corn 350 bushels Oats 125 bags bran Iso horses 9095 pounds fish 20f5 quarts milk 32,860 pounds bread to bushels seed too barrels apples 44 barrels carrots 860 Heads cabbage. The actual Cost of this Supply in 1889 was $5868.99, so that the average expense to the City of each of or. Conkling a guests was $6.47, this estimate would strike tip the senior elephant As a huge joke while the three toed sloth and the Kin Kajou might regard the Bill As exorbitant. The Cost of Medicine administered to the sick in the same time was Only $21.30, or Between 2 and 3 cents per head. The animals that eat meat had to have ice of course the Bill for that was $141.25 for heating in Winter $1905.25 Riding from Steamer or station to Park $180.20. The regular dinner hour in the menagerie is 2 of clock. To remind them it has come the animals need no Gong or steam whistle. Should the keepers fail to appear with their baskets and trucks at the appointed hour an uproar would be loosed beside which bedlam would be a pigs whisper. As it is the Lions panthers tigers and All the cat family begin to show uneasiness As the hour of 2 approaches stalking up and Down with flaring eyes and lashing thir flanks with their tails. The elephant changes from his customary attitude of receiving the Small boys gifts shifts in a see saw fashion from one ponderous foot to another and his trunk quivers in the air expectantly. Tho Camel lets out another link in his neck and the Pupil of his Sapient Eye distend. All the monkeys the Guinea Baboon the Mandrill the pig tailed and the spider Monkey and All the other quaint Fellows begin to chatter and scratch themselves furiously the bears tub their noses and Waddle to the front bars of their great Iron House and the pelicans Yawp at the harking seals. What is one animals meat is another animals Poison and tile largest beasts eat no flesh at All. The elephant for instance anal Hay Good enough for him he tucks away a Bale of it every Day. He is one of the privileged guests and eats morning and afternoon. In the summer grass is substituted for Hay. It is Cut in the Park and is served to him As Green and fresh As Young lettuce. The american and Cape buffaloes the camels and the Deer also find Hay and grass strengthening the larger animals eating about 25 pounds a Day. But they cannot live by Hay alone. The Deer has in addition a pint of Corn daily which puts fat on his ribs and the other animals enjoy a quart of Oats. The bears Are tremendous eaters. Ten loaves a Day is the portion of each of them. Supt. Conklin would like to give them Cornbread but its not on the Market. He says it would hardly pay him to establish a bakery for the bears and other bread eating animals in spite of their amazing appetites so they arc forced to put up with wheaten loaves. Tho Experiment of feeding meat to the bears has been tried but it makes their hair fall out and a Bald hear would get scant attention from the Chil Dren. Twice a week the big White Polar Bear has a change of diet a bluefish Amess of Tom cods or any other fish in season. Being thrown to him. He is not squeamish about Tho freshness of it and the other hears do not disturb him As lie bolts it hones and All. This is a Concession to his Arctic origin and one of the titbits that Host Conklin allows his Best behaved animals to regale themselves on. His bears hip could manage to make out on a straight diet of White bread. Ruch a regimen however would ill suit the vitals of the cat family. No one could ally. Expect the kingly lion the Royal Bengal Tiger tile spotted Leopard and the sinewy Jaguar to Puiyip with bake flour and water and they done to. The eat flesh with real blood in it. Had they a Choice of meats they would prefer Juicy kid or the second Cut of the sirloin of a Hoove but the taxpayer stand that new York would soon be in the hands of the sheriff. The dish these Noble animals eat is horse and old horse at that when the Newyl Ork horse gets rheumatic in his joints wheezy in his Bellows and hangs his head Down to his Knees he still has Chance to escape the phosphate Yard he May be urged up to the Park knocked Down by the horse Butcher Cut into steaks or chops and eaten by the King or Queen of beasts. Superintendent Conklin keeps a regular Butcher to Cut up the meat of his cat family. As Mav be seen by the above table they eat 156 horses last year. Of course or. Conklin never serves up a Salvator or a Sunol not even on feast Days. A horse is a horse when dead and a $5 wreck is palatable enough to a menagerie lion. These animals Are rather particular about the Way their meat is put upon the table. They turn up their noses at fat and refuse sinew and Gristle. The meat is Given to them stripped of these and without Bone which they cannot digest. An exception must be made in the Case of the Hyena whose digestive Organ is As elastic and assimilating As that of a Harlem Gatot in the theatrical or moving season. The Hyena gets Bones and gulps them. A set Quantity of meat is Given to each animal according to his appetite and needs. The big Tiger leads off with 18 pounds then comes the male lion with 15 the female Tiger 14 leopards to panthers 8 Prairie wolves 3 and jackals 2. One Day a week invariably sunday the meat eaters fast. There is no religion about this but the expediency of giving their organs of digestion a rest. Or. Conklin has found that these animals thrive better on six meals a week. With seven they become a prey to indigestion and Are very miserable. A curious thing about the sunday abstinence is that the beasts know when the Day comes round As surely As a divine who Lias two sermons and a christening on his mind. Two o clock sunday excites no craving in the stomach of the Central Park Tiger. While on a week Day he is prowling. And expectant As the time comes on sunday finds him drowsy inert and indifferent. The sight of the keeper who usually brings him his food does not stir him from ins recumbent posture. This is As True As a the almanac and or. Conklin will swear to it on a hound volume of the City record. Now the Monkey is nicer in his diet. By reason of his extremely human appearance he is privileged to eat twice a Day morning and afternoon. His first meal is on bread and milk and his dinner consists of boiled Rice and apples. Occasionally As a treat begets a Carrot. It is great fun watching the monkeys Dine. They Are terrible gluttons and shy in their gluttony. The Strong eat first and the weak sit Back Ami Grimace and chatter in Sharp anguish. When the larger Alec Are surf edited they snatch up some tide it an Apple or a Brown crust and hold it behind their backs with a benevolent expression that would have brought tears of envy to the eyes of or. Peck sniff. After a while they invariably forget All about the morsel and drop it. The shivering Little monkeys who have prudently remained in the background until the big Fellows have made a clean sweep of the Best portions Rush to the front and fight for the discarded fragment biting scratching Aud strangling one another and shrieking out Monkey oaths in a Gigli a gastronomic show however that of the pelicans is the most unique and Amus int e ii r Tot j else three pounds per Pelican. The keeper pausing in front of Bird no. I i a two foot fish. With a gape ing As soon As the keeper appears Squi and nothing else three pounds per Pelican. My. A Bool. Long billed grotesque Birds get into line a of soldiers. Fish is their food like a squad throws Nim a two foot fish. With a gape that almost divides him in two the Pelican catches the fish dexterously and attempts to Swallow it whole. He succeeds if Rte Hasni to seized it Tail first in which Case he has to disgorge it and try it again. Pelican no. 2 has now opened himself greedily and a fish is fired at him. It is in his crop by the time no. 8 has attracted the attention of the keeper Ana so on Down the line to the paroxysms of Delight of the children. The seals and sea Lions share an enclosure with Tim pelicans and also live on fish. They have hard times getting their own when their Long billed chums Are ravenous hut the seals Are full of Light and respond to every Yawp of Tho pelicans with a menacing bark. The alligators Are horse eaters. Their portion is to pounds a Day from about May to october. During Tho Winter they eat nothing lying Muon of the time in a comatose state. The snakes Dine once a fortnight. The Boa and the Python Gorge themselves with a Pigeon or a Rabbit apiece. The rabbits and Tho pigeons Aro bred Iii the Park for the purpose As Are also the toads Aud White rats which Are Given to the smaller snakes. The Burly Hippopotamus has two meals a Day in the morning a pail of crushed Oats and two pails of bran mixed together and in the afternoon ten loaves of bread. The baby Hippopotamus now several weeks old is still suckling but occasionally he picks up a bit of bread and stows it away. Or. And mrs. Hippopotamus take their bread in a very undignified fashion. It is thrown to them by the keepers and they catch it in their cavernous Mouths without blinking. The Rhinoceros has the same menu. Pap wont do for the eagles. They want stouter stuff and horse flesh fills the Dill. The vultures Are in the same category. At 2 of clock daily several pounds of horse flesh Are thrown into the big Cage and the Birds partake of it at their pleasure. Sometimes the Bald headed Eagle is so deeply immersed in the retrospect of a Hundred years that the film Over his old Eves shuts out the vulture voraciously helping himself and when the great american Bird flops Down to fill his crop the Buzzard is walking off with a double portion. Will eat anything. The cockatoos parrots and like Birds sustain life on bread soaked in water. The soft Bill Birds generally eat prepared mockingbird food. The Bard Bill Birds like the Jackdaw Robin Thrush and Blackbird get a few scraps of meat every Day. If the Ostrich had an appetite like the pelicans his capacity for stowing away grub would be enormous but he is satisfied with a quart of Corn a Day and three loaves of bread Cut up into cubes. The swans Are Corn eaters in summer but in Winter they take kindly to cabbage devouring a great Quantity of it. The Little Prairie dog has a tooth for apples which he varies with Corn and Hay. To is a modest Little fellow and keeps very much to himself in his Hole Winters. In catering to his animals supt. Conklin Lias made a singular discovery it is that the Moat eaters like the cat family weigh More and enjoy better health if fed once a of twice on the same Quantity of food. The size of Tho Medicine Bill. $21.30, is the Best certificate of the health of animals. If they were human beings and registered physicians had their signs exhibited about the premises ailments would be legion and a drug store would be indispensable. The chief concern of rust. Conklin is to adjust the temperature in Winter to the circulation of his wards. In the Monkey houses for instance Tho thermometer must stand Between 65� and 70. Antelopes and other indoor animals such As elephants Lions and tigers whose origin is Semi tropical must have a temperature of at least 60�. The camels buffaloes Barbary wild sheep and Deer need no More Protection in the rigorous season than is afforded by their wooden huts in the men air. The Deer in fact Are Riskiest when the Earth is mantled with Snow and they prefer it to lie in to their bedding of Hay. Of the sicknesses that afflict the denizens of Tho menagerie congestion of the lungs is the Only one that excites grave apprehension. Crowley and Kitty the famous chimpanzees whose intelligence was almost human succumbed to it and so did Tho baby Hippopotamus bom during 1889. He lived but four Days and an autopsy showed that his right lung was congested recently the a fail and ins ailment was Rhinoceros began to nag ironed As a severe cold. A quart of whiskey and Jamaica Ginger was administered to him two or three times a Day and he pulled through. Last year a lioness two pumas a Llama Emu and sea Eagle were taken Down with pneumonia and passed Over to the majority. The usual postmortem was held and Thoy were then stuffed and mounted for the museum of natural history. Among other losses were some Birds in the aviary thai were eaten by rats and an Elk who died of old age. To was killed and Cut up by the Butcher Aud the stomachs of tile cat family were surprised with a treat of Venison. This is what costs. Of the Lions and tigers catch cold a dose of powdered quinine is Given to them in their food. Thoy sometimes suffer from dyspepsia and a meal of liver set before them is readily devoured and acts As a cathartic. They Seldom need treatment however for any trouble except i growing nails. Iii a Savage state they keep their nails pared Down by clawing the trunks of Trees. In Captivity the nails grow Long and sometimes penetrate the flesh of their paws. It then becomes necessary to relieve the pain by removing its cause. A looped rope is thrown Down on Hie floor of the Cage the animals paws Are caught in it and he is dragged to the bars in such a position that the wound can be operated upon. Pincers and a clip with a pair of Sharp shears do the work and the brute is released sound and cured. There is absolutely no danger in this treatment. In fact the keepers never enter the cages if it can be avoided. It sometimes became necessary for Jake took who had charge of Crowley to interview that pleasing ape at close quarters and vigorously remonstrate with him As when be seized a newspaper or Cap from a visitor and proceeded to stuff it into his Mouth for an edible but the keeper was not Over anxious to apply physical suasion. What ruined the meeting. Pittsburg bulletin or. Wiggins Well my Clear did the woman a society for reforming the Earth have a Good meeting mrs. Wiggins a fair reformer a Well just so so. You see business was going on beautifully. When some one asked Tho president about the new bonnets worn by the younger Korosis women at their annual meeting. Or. . Mrs. W. Blushing by a Ami then then the hour for adjournment had come and gone before she got through. Not even lying. Klie Gende Braetter a Canyon Tell me How the firm Schwindel Macher amp co. Stands a Quot that firm is not standing any More. It is reciprocating their feelings. Ram Horn the Man who is satisfied with himself is terribly disappointed in other people.
