THE PITTSBURGH DISPATCH, . STJSTDAY, -DECEMBER!
Some Amusing Features of the Usual
ly Dry Procedure of Courts.
A DEFINITION OF AN ATTORNEY.
Examples of EeparteelExchanged Between
O'COKNELL'S TILT WITH LOED KQRBUBI
nVETTTEN rOK THX DISFJLTCH.1
In an article published in The Dis
fatch a few weeks ago I jjave Iwo defini
tions of an attorney, -one I took from
"Webster, the other from Bouvier. Both in
the main hold that attorneys re simply
agents; who appear for and act in place of
their "clients- jjrho have not the iequisite
learning, experience, time or desire to ap
pear in suits IWthcmselves.
But then it must be remembered that I
was writing 'of women as lawyers without
much reference to men farther than in a
judicial capacity. 1 Tield back another
definition of a lawyer, not designedly, bow
ever, given in open court by one of the finest
of legal writers and one of the most pro
found lawyers the world has ever known. I
jnei'n-t&o amiable, the refined, the intel
lectuaWLord Brougham. His is by no
means negation of- Webster-and Bouvier,
hut merely goes a little further and says a
lawyer "Xi a legal -gentleman who rescues

It will not do to say that the learned
jurist was jesting, but he was in right
earnest. In every subject of dispute there
ore two sides, a right and a wrong; now the
science of putting those contending state
ments, so as to confuse the right and the
wrong and make it difficult to decide is
called ""special pleading." This "special
pleaaing," expressed in complicated terms
ot.Iezal Dhraseoloer. maces a mass oi en
tanglement, and when brought to bear upon
property it will often distribute the whole of
it among the lawyers and leave nothing for
the contestants themselves. The praecipe
lor the writ and the writ itself have never
been regarded as a portion of the pleadings.
The pleading begins with the declaration
which is supposed to state the grievance or
the cause ol action of the -plaintiff, who, as
n rule, is not very modest in his averments,
but gives an outlandish exaggeration oi the
money dne or the injury done by the de
fendant, how it is DOKE.
I will illustrate by a scuffle Tsaw In a
restaurant a few evenings ago, wherein an
EastEuder pulled tbe nose of a well-known
citizen of this citv. An action for trespass
would lie in this .case, afld if Mr.
wished to recover, instead of simply saying
that the defendant pulled his ncse, would
"declare" through his attorney that "the
defendant, with force and arms, and with
great force and violence, seized, laid hold
of, pulled, plucked and tore, and with his
fists gave and struck a great many violent
blows and strokes on and about divers parts
of the plaintiffs nose," 'etc.
" This is one out of the many kinds of
declarations all depending on the cause of
action, in fact there are so many that the
grave and serious Mr. Chitty grows merry
after writing a huge volume ot 700 pages on
this dry subject. ,
The writ, too, is a strange document, and
one ot the oddities or the law; it begins
with the State or Commonwealth, warmly
greeting you, but ends with a stern com
mand and "at your peril." "Writs there are
galore, to wit: Scire .facias, capias corpus
and its oppon)t, habeas corpus, certiorari,
inquireud, etc., etc ; they take their name
from the fir i- word of the old writs which
were in Latiu. and is said by some to have
leen instituted by Brutus, the grandson of
JEneas,-of Trojan war fame, and the first
Xing' of England, who died when Samuel
was Judge of Israel.
There are different kinds of actions and
different courts fo.- determining them. An
action of detinue lies where a party seeks
to recover what is detained from him or
her; though it does not seem that a gentle
man detaining a seat in a street car while a
pretty lady is standing would be liable to
aetinne, though it may be ungallant.
v AN ACTION FOB TEESPAS3
lies for an injury committed with violence,
such as the nose pulling heretofore men
tioned. An action for trespass on the case
lies where a party seeks damages for a
wrong to which trespass will not apply
where he has not been hurt in person, but
hurt in pocket In the State of Pennsyl
vania the Court of Common Pleas is the
panacea for woes of this kind. And it is a
very popular court in Allegheny county.
There is Common Pleas No. 1 and Common
Pleas No. 2; a well-known lawyer once told
me it took its title, possibly, from tbe fact
of the lawyers finaing the profits such as to
make them un-Commbn-ly Pleas'd.
Tbe queerness of tbe law does not end
with the pleadings, in fact it has not rightly
begun. During the trial the examination
ot witnesses, the argnments of counsel, the
rulings of the Court, his charge to the jury,
iue jury ju.cu, teem wun incidents or note
flowers of rhetoric, which bloom and smell
sweet sallies of wit and stinging replies.
Perhaps the most eminent lawyer in this re
spect at all events in this country was the
late Emery A. Storrs, of Chicago. He was
not only witty and auick in repartee, but
beside had a faculty of blending them with
law and logic to such an extraordinary de
$ gree that drewfrom Lord Chief Justice Cole
ridge, of England, the very enviable eulogy
of being the "Prince of barristers."
I was present in Chicago at one of the
last arguments he ever made. It was on a
writ of error to the United States Circnit
Court, Judges Harlan and Gresham, presid
ing. Mr. Tuthill, now judge, was then District
Attorney, and had commenced the famous
Mackin case by information rather than by
indictment, the statutory proceeding against
allprisoners suspected of an infamous crime.
This was the very point in question. Mr.
Tuthill read to the court a letter from the
warden of the penitentiary, stating that if
Mackin entered the penitentiary under
the sentence of the court he would not
be subjected to the cropping of the hair or to
hard labor, the punishment due for infam
fA CHANCE FOE BALD MEN.
Storrs, in reply, took up the letter in the
midst of the heavy portion of his argu
ment, andperhaps never since or before did
an omclaTget such a scoring on the grounds
of a warden of a penitentiary dictating to
the Supreme Court of the United States.
"If Tour Honors," said he, "permit that,
you will lay a precedent for the constables
and bailiffs to dictate to our circuit and
courts of original jurisdiction. Kor do
they stop there. They submit that the
cropping of the hair is the punishment
provided f or .anjnfamous crime. Were that
the law, anyone with a bald head could not
be convicted of an infamous crime."
Judge Harlan, who has scarcely a hairvin
his head, burst out in laughter, and could j
scarcely regain his equipoise during the re-1
maiuaer oi iue discussion.
The judges themselves indulee in those
smart words particularly if they are egged
onjby some quickwitted lawyer. One day
iXordSorbary was charging a jury and his
."faddreisuwas interrupted by the braying of a
4What noise is that?" cried Lord Nor-
"'lis only the echo of the Court, my
Lord," answered one of the counsel.
The Judge, xot disconcerted, resumed his
address; but soon the same barrister had to
Interpose with technical objections. While
patting them, again the donkey brayed.
"One at time, if yon please," said the
Sir Thomas Browne has compiled a book
full of such anecdotes, -and they are neither
trite nor vulgar. The other day, in tbe

A good many Members of the Pittsburg
bar will remember the shrewd device adopted
by Tom Macshallto escape line for con
tempt of court in the old Court House a few-'
years ago. He was nsing language not at
all complimentary to the Court one day, and
the Judge, alter pne or two reprimands,
fined him $10 tor contempt.
Mr. Marshall looked at the Judge good
naturedly and asked where was he to get
the money, as he had not a "red."
"Borrow it of a friend," said the Court.
"Well, Your Honor, you are the best
friend I have; will you lend it to me?" re
plied Mr. Marshall.

O'Connell, the great Irish Liberator, was as
famous in his day tor his wit as his oratory,
but one day in court Lord Norbury, men
tioned above, got the best of him.
"Pardon, my Lord; I am afraid yonr
Lordship does not apprehend me."
"Pardon me also," replied Lord Norhury.
"So one is more easily apprehended than
Mr. O'Connell whenever he wishes to be ap
prehended." It must be remembered that a few days
before that O'Connell gave himself up to
the police to avoid fighting a dnel.
I was once shown an old-fashioned house
in Bed Lion Square which was at one time
the home ot a very distinguished counsel.
After his removal to a more fashionable por
tion of the city, a wealthy blacksmith be
came its occupant, and 'Erskine wrote the
following epigram on the change:
This home, where once a lawyer dwelt;
Is now a smith's alas!
Bow rapidly the iron age
Succeeds the age of brass.

The list of defaulters swelled daily. A
young man of good family, good looking,
well educated and with promising future, a
man who should make his mark in liie,
led astray; $50 or $75 a month does not
justify three or four 540 or $50 suits a year,
$50 to ?G0 for a winter overcoat and $30 to
$40 for spring and tail overcoat Many a
happy man could be cheerful, many a sob
and sigh saved if young men would only
reflect, think of themselves, of their dearest
and nearest, how unhappy their extravagant
dress and mode of living made all
their connections. To obviate this patron

we make splendid business suits to order at

for one year, repaired free of charge if re
quired. Dress suits to order from $30, war
ranted for two years. Men who cannot
afford to wear made-to-order clothing can be
pleased in Jacksons home-made clothing.
Elegant business suits made by Jacksons'
custom tailors in blace and blue cheviot,

In overcoats Jacksons can please the most
fastidious; fine overcoats to order from $18

parties. Young man, take timely warning.

clothing, and the reason they always look
well is we do repairing on their goods free

The Henry F. Miller Grand Pianos
Have held the lead and shared the honors
with the distinguished pianists who "played
them at the Music Teachers' liatbnal As
sociation meetings for the past nine consecu
tive years, being the only "grand" used at
all the meetings.
"At the national meeting in Philadelphia
in '89 it was the general verdict of the musi
cians that the Miller grand surpassed all the
others. At the New York State meeting
the distinguished American pianist, Mr.
Wm. H. Sherwood, who made a phenomenal
success, publicly stated it would have been
impossible for him to have produced such
magnificent results on any other grand
piano in the country." Philadelphia Musi

A Preventive for Croup.
Croup is a terror to young mothers,
especially during the winter months, as it is
then most prevalent. It can always be pre
vented, if projStrly treated as soon as the
first symptoms appear. Hoarseness is the
first symptom; this is soon followed by a
peculiar, rough cough. If Chamberlain's
Cough Bemedy is freely given as soon as
these symptoms appear, it will invariably
prevent the attack. There is no danger in
giving the remedy, as it contains no in
jurious substance. Por sale at 50 cents per

"Sight up on yon knob's where the last
Injun was killed In Eastern Ohio."
It was out In Harrison county among
hills and forests which the autumn frosts
had painted with the glories of sunset. The
speaker was a chance companion whose age
and manifest feebleness had recommended
him to the unoccupied seat in my buggy.
And the courtesy he repaid me by telling
me tales of the early settlement of the re
gion (he was one of the pioneers himself),
as my horse rapidly carried us toward our
destination. His dialect was distinct
though not very pronounced. It was neither
Yankee, Southern, nor the modern Wild
West, but the Western dialect of 80 years
ago, that in this retired hill district has still
clung to many of the inhabitants. Eeadily
intelligible it has a charm not easily repre
sented by the side of those modern linguistic
monstrosities,the negro and Western dialects
as they appear in the magazines.
"The grave is down in yonder holler. I
guess I could point it out to you if we 'uz
down there. I've heerd old Johnney Mc
Coytell how, when he was a boy, he started
to dig the redskin up. 'Twere along in the
afternoon. The grave showed signs of
havin' been turned up before, an' Johnney
worfced away 'thont payin' much 'tention to
the shadders a crawlin out longer and
longer till at last it 'gan to grow mighty
dusky. Then Johnney gan to feel kind o'
skeert an' to think about ghosts an Injuns.
The darker it got, the harder he thought
about 'em. He kept getting 'fraider and
'raider an' his teeth commenced to rattle
together while the dirt seemed heavier 'n
lead to throw out'er that hole. All at
once he looked up and thought he
saw a .great big Injun with a toma
hawk a standin' right over him. iAnd he
jest throwed -his mattock an' it shovel
an streaked out over the hills fer home. He
dasn't look behind him, an' every minute
he expected to feel that Injun a twistin' of
his scalp lock. Never went back arter his
diggin tools, but somebody else come along
x guess ana niiea in tne note fle made, an
kept 'em for the pains.
"What 'd he want t' open the grave for?
I dunno, indeed. 'Spose it 'uz jest a boy's
devilishness. Mayhap he wanted to see
what a dead redskin looked likeT But un
less an Injun hide '11 turn water better'n a
white man's he would n't ha' found more'n
a few mouldy bones. It 'uz years then
sence he'd been bnried, an' there wa'n't no
trouble of makin' a coffin. But the lad
learned a lesson of lettln' dead folks rest in
KO INQUEST NEEDED.
"'Bout the Injun an' who killed him?
Well, nobody ever took any trouble to find
out the deceast's relatives. He 'uz jest a
common, everyday Injun, I reckon. But
the man 'at killed him was old Joe Huff,
the greatest Injun fighter as ever tramped
through the timber o' this section of coun
try. I reckon he killed more of 'em than
could find a livin' it three counties. He
never told me himself, bat I used to hear
'em tell how he got so severe against 'em.
"He 'uz in gaged to be married. The day
fer the weddin' was set, an' Joe he started
so's to get there the day before. The girl,
she lived with her folks down along the
river some 'er' near Steubenville is now.
She was expectin' htm, and had started out
to meet him when he went to cross the riven
Not thinkin' of Injuns or anything of th
sort, she got too far away from the house,
an' a party of 'em that 'uz lyin around In
the woods an' high grass waitin' to commit
some devilment intercepted her. They
weren't the capsherin' kind, bnt jest coolly
tomahawked an' scalped her in plain sight
o' the house and of Joe, who was on the
other side of the river an' too fur away to
do any good 'ith his gun. He follered up
the murderous gang and killed four out o'
six of 'em brought back the four scalps, as
well as the girl's, but that couldn't brine
her back to life.
"Well, that made him bitter as pizen
'gainst the wholeraceo' redskins an' he killed
'em every chance he got jest as he would
a copperhead snake. An' he got a right
smart lot o' chances too, for he hunted all
over Western Pennsylvania and Eastern
Ohio and he knew the country like a student
knows his bookt.
"The Injuns chased him once for 150
miles 'thought catchin' him. It uz
when Washington sent old Wayne out
West to look after a gineral risin of the
Injuns in Ohio. Joe, always anxious for a
chance to fight 'em, offered himself as a
scout Wayne sent him and another scout,
Dickerson by name, out as spies to
a place near Upper Sandusky, where
the Injuns, the Miami's, I think they were,
had a town. They stained themselves cop
per colored an' put on Injun dress; it wasn't
so very different from their own, but they'd
killed so many it was easy to find the real
X BISKY DODGE.
"Well, they went into that camp o' red
skins an' walked around an' talked with
'em, found out how many braves an' how
many squaws there was an' where they were
goin' to attack got all the information they
wanted, an' if it hadn't a-been for one little
thing they' a-got off, 1 reckon, without any
trouble. But Joe Huff haad.a pair o' blue
eyes and well there's no such thing as a
bine-eyed Injun. They're always gray or
black eyed. Joe -hadn't been there but a
few hours till he noticed 'em a-squintm'
curiously at his eyes. And he told his mate
they'd got to cut an' rnn for itef they didn't
want to figger as the center of attraction at a
"They got off by startin' west without
'tractin' much attention, and then circled
'round the camp back east They'd trav
eled about 20 miles, and were sittin' down
a tryin' to chew some dried strips o' smoked
vciii&uu, us uumers always tuuse times car
ried strung round their neck. They didn't
dare rist shootin' any fresh meat When
all at once, a dog put his feet up on a log a
few rods away and sniffed at 'em, Joe
picked up his gun carelessly and looked
through ' the sights. 'No, you hold on.
There'll be something else there to shoot in
a minnte,'a whispered jJiceerson. Sure
enough, a big Injun peeped over the log an'
got the load from Joe's gun so'l he never
knew what hurt him. Well, the Injuns
bad a big party, an they 'uz'a huntin'
those two scouts in airnest, so there was no
stoppin' to scalp their game or anything else.
They didn't even stop to sleep, put pushed
on shOotin' one of their pursuers every
now an' then jest to break the monotony of
the trip. But the Injuns didn't give up the
chase,till they reached the blockhouse at
Marietta, on the Ohio river. I disremember
exactly how long it took 'em. About 36
hours, I guess. Not a slow gait And they
hardly had time to drink water, much less
to cook their string venison. fcStiiMt wasn't
an eclipse race, for the Injuns were close
onto their trail all the time.
''Well, arter that little war uz over an'
Mad Anthonr had ei'n the Indians a first-
class old-fashioned lesson, the business of
'scontin didn't amount to s much as it had
used to. Old Josie took a claim about a
mile or so down the oreek, 'Hid a little bit o'
farmin' now an' then, when the speerit
moved him, but the most of his time he
spent a hundn'. Didn't get rich at it, but
hekep' himself alive. He complained a"good
bit as tlje other settlers began to come in,
that he couldnjt seem to breathe right He
felt crowded, an' the air sorter oppressive.
I reckon it was with him a good bit like 'tis
with you as' me whezrwe go into a church,
cram full o' bad breathan' all the winders
clost -Only his sense of it was a good deal
"Bnt, "though he had built a log hht,"aV
pretended to act civilised, h atilf ioilered
i him. - ""
"Seemed like more'n -half the time in
summer he slept out in the woods, and some
times, even when there was snow on the
ground, I've been goin' through the woods,
and seen the piles of leaves bunched up in
the shelter of some wind shake, and knowed
by the tracks 'at old Joe had spent the night
there. Even when ie did sleep under his
roof, he allers got up and out into the brush
before daylight. He said he had no idea of
being caught like a rat in a trap.
LOOKING FOB JOE.
"Ye see the Injuns still had awarm feelin
fer Joe. There 'uz peace between them an'
the whites in general, an' every now we'd
see an Injun hunter or a party of 'em come
in through this region. They never mo
lested us and they weren't in paint so we
weren't much afeard of 'em. They pre
tended to be huntin' deer or beaver or some
kind o' pelt animals. But we knew that
thev were aJiuntin' Joe Huffs scalp.
"Still Joe was too cute fer 'em. He used
to say it 'uz a poor white man wasn't a
match for three redskins. And he generally
managed to get at least one of their scalps
'stead o' their gettin' his'n.
"Well, one mornin' the old man left his
cabin airly an' started out 'ith his gun up
the holler a comin'this way. He hadn't
gone very far till he heard a twig snap.
Walked on a little furder an' stepped be
hind fallen tree an' waited. Pretty soon
a 'most in his tracks he saw a big red In
jun partin' the undergrowth with Tils
hands an' a peerin' through an' lookin'
to see what'd become of him. Joe didn't
know how many there was of 'em, so he
traveled on, a pretty fair pace, gen'lly man
agin' to keep a good big tree square
behind him, or else in thick growth
of saplins. Nearly all this country through
lere was thickly timbered then, and the
savage didn't have a very good chance to
shooc. But still Joe could hear the leaves
rustle or a twig snap every little while. At
last he got kinder tired and riled, and de
termined he'd stop, bein dogged so.
TJd on the north side of that knob we
passed, there was then a bit of open, an' at
the lower edge of it a wind shake. He
went square into that open space, and just
as lie passed over the top he jumped and
ran fer the cover o' that pile o' logs. He'd
only got fixed when lie saw the Injun
a-peepin' round a tree, lockin' fer him.
Then Joe let him have it He told about it
afterward, when somebody asked regardin'
"Said he was out hunting t'other day an
saw an Injun a actin kinder queer an
lookin arter him. 1 watched him lor a min
ute or so an' the dern fool kicked over
against a tree when I went up to see what
'uz the matter found he 'uz dead, so I
scalped and buried him.'
"That was a peculiarity of Joe's.he'd never
say he killed an Injun. Maybe 'twouldn't
been safe If the Sheriff 'd heard it But
he always said he watched him a little
while, or something of the sort 'at meant the
same thing. And an Injun 'at he watched
through the sights of old Nance, as he called
his gun, was generally ready for seal pin'.
"What ever became of him? I dunno as
I can tell you. He lived along this way for
a good many years after that little affair,
and one day went out in the woods a huntin',
and I gness was never heerd of again. May
hap he went further West, where he could
breathe easier. Or maybe the Injuns got him
arter all. I shouldn't wonder it they'd of
got him long before if they hadn't preferred
to roast him instead of shootin' him."

AFTER THE BIG Mi
Washington City Sees no Reason
Why She Should Not
CAPTURE THE NEXT EXPOSITION.
Figuring on the Money Which Will he
Spent by Visitors.
THE KATIONAL ZOOLOGICAL (JAEbEHS
rCOBaESFOJTDEKCE OP THE DISPATCH.
Washinoiok, November 30. As the
chances of Ne,w York to capture the "World's
Fair become beautifully less, the citizens of
tha "Deestrik" hustle harder. They are not
at all perturbed over the presence of com
mittees from other cities. The hustling
"Washingtonians propose raising a guaran
tee fund of $15,000,000. one-half of which
they would like to have Uncle Sam contrib
ute, and the remainder they propose to
gather by their own efforts. The wealthy
residents of the city, or perhaps I should
say the property holders, are coming to the
front in a manner quite gratifying to the
advocates of the fitness of the Capital City
as a. site for the famous fair.
Alex. B.t Anderson, Secretary of the
Three Americas' Exposition Board of Pro
motion, gives some interesting figures in.
connection with the holding of the fair
here. As Americans are said to measure
everything by the standard of the mighty
dollar, tbe financial aspects of his remarks
will be most interesting.
He estimates the number of visitors who
will come to this citv dnring the six months
of 1892 at 15.000.000. He bases his esti
mate upon the attendanc at the Centennial
Exposition of 1676. Each of these visitors,
in order to verify the secretary's calcula
tions, must spend $10 while here, which
will amount to $150,000,000. Tha cost of
tbe Exposition from a Washington stand
point would be from 515.000,000 to $20,000,
000. The other American Bepublics will
probably srjend larere amounts at tha fair.
L At the Exposition TTniverselle, the Argen
tine jxepuouo alone spent nearly a-ronnd
million, while the other South American
States dropped a very handsome pile of
dust into the capacious pockets of Johnny

SIXTH STREET. "T
Is one -eftsily overcome by'ajiy ,ne of
the enthusiastic Washingtonians havisjf the
welfare of his beautiful city at heart Mn
this respect Washington is an elastic city,
and when put, to the test-ae wilj not be
found wanting in ability to take-care of the
strangers within her gates.
There are at the present time inttiiscity
85 hotels, between 300 nnd 400 boarding
houses, and tmy quantity of furnished rooms
to rent Of the hotels, the more prominent
ones, such as, the Nonnandie. Arlington,
Ebbitt, Willard, Eiggs, Kandall, National,
Metropolitan, etc., have an average capacity
of about 600, while that of the smaller
houses ranges between CO and 200 each. It
the fair is held here and we are
all hoping that it will a number of the
hotel keepers will erect sufficient temporary
hotels on the vacant ground near the fair
buildings to enable them to more than
double their present capacity. Between
now and the time of holding the fair, tbe
Bonifaces of Washington would have ample
time to prepare for tbe careful housing of
an tne visitors. Buould the city not oe
able to take care of all her guests, she has
only to fall back on Baltimore, which will
take care of the overflow. The 45 minute
flyers which the "Pennsy" runs between
this city and Baltimore, would enable one
to get to his lodeings very quickly, prob
ably more rapidly than if the fair buildings
were located on some of the proposed New
York sites, or upon the prairies of Chicago.
LEAENINO TO TALE SPANISH.
If Washington should receive the plum,
boarding houses will spring up like mush
rooms. Tin signs informing the public that
accommodations can be had within will be
everywhere displayed from the streets and
alleys of plebeian Swampoodle to the more
aristocratic avenues in the beautiful north
western part of the city. Many a fond day
dream of shekels galore has the boarding
house mistress as she thinks of the vast in
flux of strangers with which the city of
Magnificent Distances will be filled in '93
if. She seriously contemplates learning
Spanish in order that she may add to her tin
sign "Spanish spoken here' Already she

The idea seems to have gone abroad that
there will be a great demand for persons fa

Washington already possesses the nucleus
ofyfirst-class exposition fa the Smithsonian,
the National Museum, with its wealth of
curiosities from every dime, tbe Patent Of
fice and similar 'buildings. We shall proba
bly have still another to add to the list the
National Zoological Gardens connected
with the Smithsonian. Prof. Langley, upon
whom the selection ol the land for the park
devolved, made his report to the President a
few flays ago. In it ha recommends the pur
chase of 166 acres of land situated in the
beantiful Bock Greek Valley. The site
chosen is a most beautiful one.and when the
work of arraneins the erounds to meet the
requirements of the Zoo is completed, the
park will compare favorably with any of the
famous gardens of the world. The price will
probably be $1,000 per acre.
Although the President probably realizes
that before the park is Completed Baby Me
Kes will be a little too large to take that

loon characteristic of childhood, he never
theless showed considerable interest in the
report of the man of science from Allechenr.

win sena ine report to ine next uongresa
with his hearty indorsement. The size of
the park will enable the animals now cooped
up in the little p$ss in the rear or the Smith
sonian to live in a natural state. In; the

Zoo is progressing, our visitors will be en
