FOOD FOR ANIMALS.
tATTKHING HORSES FOB THE LIONS,
TIGERS AND PANTHERS AT THE ZOO
Visitors to th<« Zoological Gardens
have noticed down in the lower end of
the grounds, a little to the right of the
place where the polar bears are kept,
a line of low, rambliug buildings built
against the fence which separates the
grounds from a long strip of land
lying between the Gardens and the
New York branch of the Pennsylvania
Railroad. The last of these buildings
is a good deal better than the rest,
being "a tall, close, frame shanty of
?ine boards aDd having a door to it
'ha others, smaller, more uneven and
without any doors, are nothing more
than mere sheds or stalls. Always in
front of them will be seen a pile of
clover hay, with half a dozen, more or
less, sorry-looking horses, the sole oc
cupants of the sheds, feeding thereon.
Jin inspection of these animals will
usually show a plethora of defects iu
the way of damaged eyes or spavined
joints or broken wind, all, in the ma
jority of instances, being the regular
accompaniments of old age and being
but another way of describing a horse
broken down by weight of years and
past his stage of usefulness. Occa
sionally younger animals may be seen
in the stalls, but these are also suffer
ing from some affliction of body or
limb and stand on the same footing as
FOOD FOR THE BEASTS.
These horses, once they get under
the above described sheds, have all
one common destiny—they are to be
killed and dressed as food for the ani
mals of the Zoological Garden. The
amount of food consumed daily by the
animals, large and small, is no little.
The chief meat-eating animals are the
lions, tigers, leopards, pumas and
hyenas. Altogether they consume
about 175 pounds of horse meat a day.
Four horses a week is the usual aver
age in keeping up the supply of these
animals alone. Next in point of heavy
feeding come the elephants. Their
chief food is hay, of which it takes
about four times as much to keep an
elephant as it does to keep a horse, th ■
elephant eating about 100 pounds of
hay every twenty-four hours. And in
order to keep up his appetite the hay
must be the best going, being invaria
bly timothy of the best grade. Other
animals that eat hay are the giraffes,
the camels, the deer, zebra and differ
ent animals of the cattle species. Most
all these are fed on what is known as
mixed bay, timothy and clover, which
is about twenty per cent, cheaper than
the timothy alone. Two wagon loads
of each per week is about the amount
used. Each wagon load is supposed
to contain 'O,OOO weight, or a ton «nd
a half. The price for timothy is about
S2O per ton, which makes the three
tons equal to s<to. The mixed hav
costs in the neighborhood of $lB a
ton, thus making the weekly cost of
that necessary supply $54, which,
added to the S6O, gives the weekly
cost of bay alone in the sum of. sl l4.
As to the cost of the horse meat for
the other animals, this is not so much
as might be imagined. The horses
are usually purchased at the hor.se
market by one of the employes at the
Gardens, who has all such work in
charge. The horses, as above stated,
are usually animals which have be
come superannuated and useless. The
average price paid per head is about
five dollars. As four horses per &eek
suffice, the cost for horse meat foots up
to about twenty dollars u week. The
lions, tigers, leopards and pumas are
not the only animals that are fed on
horse meat. The wolves, foxes, prairie
dogs, monkeys and black bears also
come in for their share of the supplies,
being fed almost altogether on this
kind of meat. It is regarded as sin
gular that these animals—lions, t'gers
and leopards—should make no distinc
tion between horse meat and beef,
albeit it is a point decidedly in favor
with the pocket-books of the corpora
tors of the Gardens. For four years
preceding their discovery that the ani
mals would eat horse meat as well as
beef they kept feeding them on the
latter. Two years ago it was found
that they would eat the flesh of horses
as quick as that of cows, and provision
was made accordingly. Since then the
society has been practicing judicious
economy by feeding the animals on
horse meat altogether, and they save
about fifty per cent
The cost of feeding the lions, tigers,
leopards and pumas as stated is about
S2O a week. Add to this the sll4,
cost of feeding the larger animals,
elephants, giraffes and others, and the
cost is $134. This does not nearly
represent all the animals fed in the
garden, nor does it come near being
the chief item of cost. There are a
hundred and one other creatures, re
quiring, in many cases, much more
delicate and costly food. The sea
lions have to be fed on fish, usually
fresh and salt mackerel, each animal
taking twelve or fifteen to each meal
twice a day, and consuming altogether
100 pounds of fish daily. Next in
point of delicate livers come the polar
bears, whose regular diet is bread
soaked in milk, with fisb now and then
for a change. The black bears are
also given bread, 100 pounds being
used daily. Vegetables of almost ev
ery sort are fed liberally to the differ
ent animals—cabbage, potatoes, car
rots, onions and turnips. The elephants
are great cabbage eaters, in addition to
their standard diet, hay. The giraffes,
singularly enough, are great onion
eaters, while the deer and goats and
animals of the cow species eat carrots,
turnips and potatoes. Bran, oats and
corn are also liberally distributed
mostly once or twice a week—among
the hay-eating animals. The most
delicate" and expensive feeder in the
place perhaps is the ourang-outang,
which gets beef, potatoes, bread and
honey. As there is only one in the
collection at present, the cost of keep
ing this grinning satire on the human
species Is not multiplied. Another
delicacy which must not be omitted in
the diet of the polar bears is fish oil,
of which they get several supplies a
week. After the hay the oats is per
haps the next chief source of expense
in the way of animal food. As for
the fowls, the larger ones are fed on
corn, while the small birds are fed on
canary seed, and all of them now and
then get a small piece of meat.. The
cost of feeding the animals alone foots
up to about SIOO a day. All the
horses that go to supply the meat
eating animals are killed on the
ground, in the small slaughter house
that stands at the lower end of the
row of gbecU iu tbe lower part of tiie
HO IV HE REFORMED.
[Detroit Free Press.]
A few weeks ago, while several cit
izens of Detroit were surrounding a
hot store in a Griswold street tobacco
store, in came a stranger who had
been on a "big drunk." His eves were
red, his back all mud, his clothes rag
ged and his General appearance was
that of a bard-up and played-out old
soaker. One of the group was telling a
yarn about a hog, and he was going on
with his story when the old fellow in
"Scuse me, sir, but I'm an old
soaker who wants to reform."
"Well, as I was saving," continued
the storv teller, after a glance at the
man, "that hog was about forty rods
away when 1 first saw him. 1 got my
"Say interrupted the drunkard, "isn t
there somebody hero who wants to
help relorm me ?"
"You go out!" replied one of the
"I won't do it! I'm an old drunkard,
and I want some one to take ine by
the hand and hope I'll reform.'
"Go on with the hog story," put in
one of the group.
"You shan't do it !" exclaimed the
drunkard "I want some one to feel sad
because I drink all my earnings and
misuse my family."
"No one here cares how much you
drink or how soon you go under
ground I" said one of the men.
"You don't, eh ? Don't any of you
want to give me advice ?"
"Don't you feel sorry because I am
degrading my brilliant intellect?"
"Brilliant bosh? You never knew
"Won't any man pity my family ?"
"Nor shed one tear over my do
graded condition ?"
"Not a shed ! You'd better be going
—we want to hear a hog story."
"Had you rather hear a hog story
than to try to save me ?"
"You bet we had !"
"Well, now, you heard-hearted and
selfish-tuinded old liars, 1 know I'm
worth more than any hog', and I'll
prove it, too. If you won't save myself
—hanged if I don't. Yes, sir, I'll keep
sober from this day on, and I'll show
you whether I'm of more account than
any of yonr hog stories or not ? You
needn't pity me nor talk with me—l
can run my own grocery !"
No man in Detroit has led a more
sober and industrious life since that
day, and there is every reason to be
lieve that he will stick.
SHE KNEW ALL ABOUT IT.
Just about midnight the other night,
four men in a Detroit saloon sat look
ing at a fifth. The fifth was drunker
than the other four. While all men
were created equal, s< me men get
drunk twice as fast as others.
"It will never no to send him home
in this condition," said one of the four
after a long silence.
"No, it would break bis wife's
heart," added a second.
"But we can't leave him here, and
if we turn him out the police will run
him in," observed the third.
"I have been thinking," mused tbe
fourth "He has a telephone in his
house. Here is one here. I will
make it my painful duty to inform his
waiting and anxious wife that he
won't be home to-night."
He went to the telephone, got her
call, and began :
"Mrs. Blank. I desire to communi
cate with you regarding your husband."
"Well, go ahead."
"He is down town here."
"I know that much."
"In descending the stairs leading
from the lodge room he fell and
sprained his ankle."
"Are yon sure it wasn't his neck ?"
"It is not a serious sprain, but we
think it better to let him lie on the
sofa in the ante-room until morning.
Rest assured that he will have the
best of care. We are doing ev—."
"Say ! broke in a sharp voice.
"You bundle him into a wagon and
drive him up here, where I can keep
him hidden -until that drunk goes off!
won't be sober before to-morrow
"My dear mad ."
"Get out! If he's sleepy drunk put
water 011 his head! That's the way I
"Will you let me inform ,vou that
"No, sir, I won't. Throw water
on his head, get him into some vehicle
and rattle him up here, for it's most

an hour to get his boots off and push
him up stars! Remember—pour

TIIE IRISHMAN AND THE BEAR.—
An Irishman of Montana was working
a placer mine, a few miles from Bear
Gulch, and visited that place one day
to get his tools sharpened. Just as he
was about to start back some one told
him that if he would go home by way
of Sour Krout Gulch he would not
miss his way, and would save several
miles of walking. Pat started out, but
after traveling several miles the sun
was almost down, and he had seen
nothing that looked familliar. At last
he made up his mind that he was lost,
and, to use his own words, feared he
"would be robbed and numbered en
tirely all alone." While he was in I his
state of mind he spied a cinnamon l»ear
on the side of the mountain, and was
almost ready to fall to the ground
with fright. Recovering his self-pos
session a little he said: "I thought it
wouldn't do to let the hear think I was
afraid of him, and concluded I might
intimidate him by making him think
that there were several of me So,
walking a little faster. I called out as
loud as iver I could, "Mike! Oi say,
Mike, hould on till I catch up wid ye
and the rest o' the b'ys.' When the
bear heard that he walked away and
said not a word.''— Helena Independ

TUB BOSS Fox S rouy.—James Pine,
a veteran fox hunter, in Marblehead,
N. Y., affirms that one day while be
was out hunting he shot a fine fox
and as he supposed the animal drop
ped dead. He went to him and tak
ing out h's jack-knife commenced to
to take off the pelt, so he wouldn't
have to carry the carcass home with
him. He skinned it down and then
pulled it over and gave it a yank in
order to free it from the body, when
the skin came of, and to the great and
inexpressible astonishment of the hun
ter, the fox jumped up and ran at full
speed, the hunter being unable in his
surprise to raise his gun to shoot him.
The dogs, however, were after him in
a jiffy, and the remarkable sight of a
fox without his pelt, scooting along
over the crust with three hounds yelp
ing on his track, was then seen. The
fox being in light inarching order soon
distanced the dogs and in ten minutes
was out of sight. A few days after,
the man was out hunting again for
foxes. The hounds run one pretty
lively and he passed through a ravine,
and it. being a peculiarity of the fox
that when he goes through a ravine he
will come back to it again, no matter
how wide the circuit may be, the bun
posted himself at this pla-.-e and waited
until he heard the bay of the hounds
following the track up to near .where
he stood. He was on the qui vive and
got a glimps of an animal running at a
great speed that had all the resem
blance to a fox, only its coat seemed a
glossy white. The hunter never
thought of the skinned fox that ran
away the day before, but supposed the
white fur would be a great rarity iu
the market, so be fired, killing the ani
mal and with great expectations hur
ried up to where he lay, aud there, lo!
and behold, found instead of a while
furred fox the one that he had skinned
the day befcre, the white flesh looking
like white fur in the sunlight. Seem
ingly the fox had not minded the lack
ot his skin very much, and the fle>h ,
