LIONESSES HAVE MATINEE
They Escape Cages and Spring Down
Among Playhouse Patrons in
New York Theatre
N?w York, Dec. 18.—Six full
grown lionesses, which had just been
put through an exhibition before 900
persons in the Eighty-sixth Street thea
tie, on the south side of that thorough
fare near Thiru avenue, escaped yester
day afternoon from their trainer. Mine.
Marie And tee, and her assistant, Carl
Turhquist, as they were being trans
-1 erred back-stage from their show
cage to their living cage. A drop cur
tain had been lowered after the animal
act, and a male quartet of singers were
caroling before this, when a screatn of
tright from the Frenchwoman caused
the song to go off-key and the audience
to look aibout in alarm.
Then one of the big, tawny 4ieasts
appeared at the right hand side of the
stage, gazed around for a moment and
leaped lightly into a box. At almost,
the same instant another showed itself
in an opposite box, to which it
had made its way through a passage
leading from the wings.
Instantly there was a panicky rush
for the exits The four singers on the
stage stopped in the middle of a note
and raced off. Yelling, pushing, aban
doning their hats, coats and wraps, the
men, women and children in the body
of the theatre forced their way toward
the front and side doors, which fortu
nately were numerous and wide.
But before half the crowd got be
yond the exits the other four lionesses
had come fron. behind the stage and
had leaped over the footlights into the
auditorium, where they mo\ ed a'bout,
undetermined just what to do. At least
two of them were in the thick of the
crowd for a time.
•So far,as could be learned, though,
no one was injured in the race for the
street. One man, Mark McDermitt,
511 East Eighty-fourth street, had his
forehead slightly lacerated by the claws
of one of the lionesses. He threw him
self on the floor for safety and the
beast, apparently by accident, placed its
foot upon him while passing over him.
Five of the lionesses were confined
in th« playhouse by the closing of the
doors after most of the spectators had
made their way out. But the sixth—
Alice, the star performer and most spir
ited of the six—esvaped through an al
leyway exit into Eighty-sixth street.
There was another wild scare then,
as the people who had just left the
theatre, and additional hundreds wiio
had run lm to see what the excrement
was, took to their heels.
'' Man Kating Beasts, Controlled by
a Woman's Hypnotic Eye," the lion-
I esses were described by the flaring post

here was one of them at large at a

During the. extitenjent a man

patted her head as though she were a
friendly dog, and then waveringlv

Duck Turns Into Soap
Lincoln, Xefo., Dec. 18.—At the State

duck that has turned largely into soap.
Dr. Wolcott found the bird up in the
