"Hnllo.mnnl" I snld, "what Is this?"
His nppenrnuco was ghastly. Tlo old
Guatamala Jacket ho wore, his leather
breechcs,cven his boots of alligator hldo
were rlppod and cut by the thorns of
tho acacias. His face streamed with

our breath, and Jemciiin strained my

tho hard snoringofn tiger Just Outside

Whllo wo listened, tlio dllection of
tho sound moved about, now up and
down, accompanied by raps against the
door, as If tho animal wcro resting his
paws against It as he raised himself on
his hind legs.
At length wo heard tho sound of
scratching, nnd I drew my mnchctle.
Iu n few seconds a black paw, armed
witli terrible crooked claws was tien
working on our sido of the door. 1

Wheu the sun rose 1 look uiy gun and
sallied out to meet the creature iu u fair

Ho was woundad to tbedeuth I plainly

"The palm Is his," was' the generous
cry, when n third put iu his claim.
"Gentlemen," ho said, "I cannot
boast of the feats of my predecessors,
but I have returuid to tho owners two
umbrellas that they left at my house."
"I'll hear no more," cried thu tuto'i
