v That was why the antique paradox, which
in our childhood we so revered, that "the
aooner you go to bed, the sooner morning
.will come," was so often quoted that night
around Schenley Park. And that was
why so many bonny faces, flushed with the
excitement which the dreamgod gives, were
laid upon their pillows, full of glad antici
pations of their first day's Zoo.
And so "sleep winnowed o'er them his
kind,kind wines.'" and from Alonongahela's
banks to Allegheny, many a household was
wrapt in slumber.
Tint bark! What hideous sound, borne
upon the affrighted breezes, "startled the
dull ear or night?"
A horrid roar arose from the moonlit dales
. of the park and swelled across the housc-
tops. Another roar still louder, another,
and yet another, followed the first, in deaf-
. Tening succession!
4f " In an instant, the neighborhood was
. awake and listening. The policeman, in
X alarm, ceased for a moment, his onward

And this was what the Jion said: "My
worthy kinsfolk,- although priority of
speech is the right of the representative of
the. oldest family of animals, you will
readily agree with ne that that right cannot,-
by us, be conceded, in view of the fact
that that representative, the spontre, is
ftotally without power of utterance. That

sinoe I arrived in this charming garden.
Uow.'ioy friends, leisure without variety ii
apt W wax monotonous. I am, therefore,
anxious that an agreeable kind or friendly
competition be gotten up, wherein all may
loin, and to the winner ot which an appro
priate prize may be presented. What say
you to this project?"
A tremendeus uproar of assent followed
the llon'a speech. So terrific, indeed, was
this sound that the police reserve guard was
,at once dispatched in the direction of Schen
ley Park, and the veterans of Homewood
and Oakland grasped their rifles and rushed
out into the atreets, thinking that a new
-rebellion hnrt beran.

newspapers accused him of eloping with the
boodle?" Queried the caustic parrot; but
the lion merely tossed his royal mane, and
awaited the answer of the crowd. A bnge
amount of bellowing, screeching and chat
tering followed the proposal; but finally, in
spite of the parrot's protest, a majority of
the inmates of the Zoo decided in its favor.
WOESE TKAX BEDLAM.
The noise-making contest accordingly be
gan. The smaller animals uplifted their
puny voices, the myriads of strange birds
sang or screamed their loudest Then the
great elephant trumpeted ferociously, and
was only silenced when the zebra hee
hawed in his usual dulcet manner.
Jnst about the time when the lion himself
was shaking the very park with his roars,
the inhabitants of the Schenley Park dis
trict had surrounded the park on every side
terrified br this second Babel. Fathers,
loosely attired in floating drapery.flewdown
the dark streets, clubbing the gnn that had
belched forth its deadly messages at Gettys
burg, or flashing the saber that had been so
gallantly wielded on the bloody field of An
tietam. Youths who had not been born in
the old heroic days snatched their
great .English canes from the stand and
prepared to deal death, if necessary. Police
men bravely cheered the citizens on to the
fight, while they themselves slipped round
the corner to summon reinforcements. Old
ladies, young ladies, and children wailed in
unison, till several royally descended Gaels
in the neighborhood of the Point imagined
that their familr banshee was howling the
death-song outside the window. The fire
bell rang a general alarm, and from every
quarter came the rattle of galloping horses,
the jingle of chains, and the rumble of
wagons. The new police telegraph flashed
fire, murder' and thieves, to every street and
station in the city. In a word, Pittsburg
had gone crazy.
THE BECOED BEATEK.
During the final stages of the lion's per
formance, the hippopotamus bobbed up
serenelr from the center of his pond and
determined to beat that noise or die. YThen
a hippopotamus says he'll make a row, he is
bound to do it. In this case the row the
hippo made, beat the best record ever
achieved, even by a hippopotamus. The
roar of Waterloo was not in it with his roar;
the thunders of Jove were mere whispers,
compared to his bellow. He raised such a
tornado that the very Government Building
Commissioners awoke and began to look
So jealous did the legions. of other ani
mals become at his superior vocal powers
that they resolved to howl Him down. It

The word went round, and there arose to
trembling heaven a combination o sound
such as never- the immovable hllla bad
echoed since first they were fashioned in the
So appalling was the shout hurled at the
vault above that the mighty fountains of
the clouds were shattered as in the Isthmian
games ot yore, when the Boman Consul de
clared the freedom of Greece and down
poured the pitiless rain in drenching tor
rents. What was the use of paterfamilias'
sword or gun in such a rain as this? Back
flew the shivering people to their homes for
wraps and waterproofs.
The fire wagons turned back; there was
no need for them now. The police, however,
kept bravely on. They were very gallant
now, because they knew the rain would
make their work easy, and everv unfortu
nate wayfarer was promptly cudgeled and
arrested on suspicion.
DECIDEDLY THE VICTOn.
But the rain had another good effect It
dampened the ardor of the contesting ani
mals. The awful bellowing ceased, and
every Inmate of the Zoo, the hippopotamus
only excepted, retired to his lair. Bnt the
old hippo didn't mind the rain in the least!
He just stood in bis pond' and kicked up
row enough for 50. The prize was his; he
had gained it honestlyand by his awn grand
enorts. Alter mat ne reeked not of rheu
matism or influenza. But Pittsburg dreaded
those diseases, so, the noise being over, the
city jnst retired to its bed, resolved to let
the matter rest till morning.
A Bomb In the Prison Yard.
