the secret op lion-taming.
gow the Difficult School is Conducted
—An Expensive Matter.
A reporter of the Pall Mall Gazette has
interviewed M. Bide!, the French lion
timer, with the following result.
■•How did you come to be a lion-tamer;'’
• I was bred to tho business. My father
kept a show. I began to enter the cages
wh-'n I was quite a child. I began with
solves, hyenas and other small fry. At 15
I left my parents, and traveled about the
country with other shows. In ISSO I
„ at Bayonne with the Bauarbo lnenage
ne A young royal Bengal tiger got
100-e. You cau imagine the state of t'ue
inhabitants. I was sent for. I looked
for the beast some time, anti found him at
last in a blacksmith’s shoo. I w ent up to
him. caught him by the throat with one
hand, and with the other threw him on my
shoulders and carried him ln.d; to his cage.
] carried him 500 yards. lly hack was con
siderably ilamaged. I was 23 years old
then, nod if "as from that moment I date
uiv veritable career. I had faced danger,
knew whut it was, and did not fear it. I
immediately liogan to lionesses,
tigers, polar bears, panthers, etc.”
r You smoke, 1 see,” I said, as I lighted a
cigarette from t lib one he held in his hand.
"Tobacco does not unsteady your nerves?’,
"Certainly not. It is true, Ido not smoke
much. Twelve cigarettes at most a day.
\ i No cognac, thank you. I have taken
my little glass, and that is all the alcohol I
shad touch till the same time tomorrow.
Alcohol is the very worst thing a man in
mv profession can make a bail use of. Tho
beasts -com to know when a man has taken
mo much. One would fancy they can dis
criminate between real courage and that
bravado which you call Dutch courage. All
these accidents which you read about in the
papers are caused by the drunkenness of
lion-tamers, who bring their courage up to
the sticking point by excessive drinking. I
take no alcohol at all except what you just
me take. If lam ever offered a drink
I tike a glass of milk, beedfvery rarely. To
master these brutes I have to begin by being
completely master of myself.”
THE SECRET OF LION TAMING.
‘ What means do you employ to tame
• My complete self-confidence and my
courage. I consider these the only means.
Red hot irons, arms, loaded w hips are the
implements of the charlatan or of the cow
ard. I have never made use of anything
more formidable than an ordinary riding
whip. And, please observe, I only work
with full-grown animals captured in a wild
state, and not. like my confreres, with
leasts born in the menagerie, and brought
up by bitches or with a sucking-bottle.
When tho Prince and Princess of
Wales visited my establishment
in 1878, at the time of the exhibition, I en
tered the cage in their presence and in the
presence of Oambetta. Emile de Girardin
and others, and mastered six full grown
African lions whom I had received that day
and who were as ferocious as an} - 1 have
ever had to do with. Sultan, too, the lion
whose portrait you see over the fireplace,
and who nearly killed me a year ago, was
six years old—that Is. in his prime—when I
enterai his cage for the first time. That
w;is down at Lyon*, in September. 187(5.
The previous >lay he had killed a man called
Vicard, and my performance was given in
favor of Vicard's widow and orphan. Vi
card was a railway porter, and had been
foolish enough to put his hand into the lion's
traveling box at the station—Sultan
had just arrived from Africa that morning.
Sultan seized his arm and tore it off bodily.
The man died the same night. Before twen
ty-four hours had elapsed I had entirely
subjugated this man-killer. I worked regu
larly with him twice a day for ten years.
It was just a vear ago that he attacked me,
and nearly killed me. I was suffering from
rheumatic pains that day and happened to
slip. A iion tamer must never fall. Lions
have not vour English notions about re
specting a fallen foe. The brute was on me
like a shot, and got me by the neck. I
caught him by the throat and shouted •Sul
tan? Sultan’ what are you doingMy
voice frightened him, doubtless, for he
opened his jaws anil loosened his hold with
out tearing out the flesh. If he had done
that I should inevitably have been
killed. He then seize* i me by the
arm, and afterwards by the thigh,
wounding me besides with Lis claws in three
other places. I managed, however, in spite
of my terrible wounds, to struggle to ray
feet, and once on my feet was master of
him. Since then, however, I have not en
tered the cages. I liave been terribly
shakeu and reduced in strength. It will lie
some time before I shall have sufficient
nerve to approach Sultan once more. No,
I do not lelieve in that nonsense that is
talked about it being impossible to do any
thing with animals who have tasted human
blood, or have seen it. If I did, I should
have retired from business long ago. 1 have
been bitten and torn over and over again,
and have often continued my performance
with my blood streaming all over me. Tho
l ites appreciate my courage and are afraid
of me, because they see that I am not afraid
of them. This is the whole secret of lion
“THE EYE IS HUMBUG."’
“Do you believe in the power of the eye?
There is a man at the Folies-Bergeres who
professes to taine lions bv the power of fas
•uiafion—mesmerism. What is your opin
ion of this profession f’
"I consider it charlatanism of the purest
water. The animals are doubtless tame
brutes, lorn in the cage. I do not believe
in the power of the eye. .V blind man
could lie as good a lion-tamer, if hu had the
requisite pluck, as any other man. I my
self am shortsighted, and. as you will see.
possess no very quelling eyes.”
Very handsome ones, though, all the
same, I thought, as I glanced at M. Bidel
and admired hie tine dark eyes, somuolent
-1*" king, though, and half close 1. Such eyes
had surely quelled Mrs. Bumble where
"You are looking for the traces of my
eoml*t with Sultan,” said Mr. Bidel, turn
ing his he.ui round and disclosing beneath
the hair on his ne k a most formidable cica
trice half a foot long if an inch, as cruel
a wound as any I have ever seen. “That
is one. I have ten other such cn my body.
"No,” he continued, “I do uot believe in
fascination. The voice, tho tone of com
siand, is a great—the principal—instrument
in lion taming. Articulate sounds seem to
"That is so,” put in Mr. Aiexiano. “the
T°i'ce. ; ;t tout. The eye is humbug. Why
I very often turn my back on one or other
of the brute* in the cage. Command them,
t>Umt up to them, show them you are not
afraid and they will buckle under."
WOMEN' IN THE LIONS’ DEN.
“You are immensely strong, M. Bidelf
"I used to be,” he replied, modestly. “I
have told you what I did at Bayonne when
a lad. At Madrid once I pursued a lion that
had got loose for thirty minutes, caught
him single-handed, mid held him till my
men brought up his cage. Into which I threw
him. Well, yes; I was slightly damaged.
At one time one of the great hits of my per
formanre was to pick up a lull size! lion on
inv shoulders, anil to carry him round the
' ;l -‘‘ three tunes. The lion weighed 'JOU kilos.
1 ui not, so strong now. Sultan knocked it
"lit i,f me considerably. No; I follow no
particular regime—training, you call it —
lid never have don*' so. I avoid excesses
°f all kinds, especially of strong drink, and
that is all."
"You sometime* take amateurs into the
with you. do you not?"
"Krequeiitly. Bodies, usually. Women
are much more courageous than men. A
"■"man who or.ee offers to enter never
draws back Men frequently do. Women
are fur nobler nod more intelligent than
Wen. That is obvious: they take much less
alcohol. They certainly ought to be allowed
vote. The first woman who entered tho
cage with me was Mile. Ghinasei, of the
varieties theater. That was in Paris
m .}*'*• All the brutes in tny show were
cohected in the cage. In 1879 Mile. Rou*-
••11. tragic ttCtriw*, also accompanied me.
**“l surrounded by oli mv bom, recited
Melpomene. In 1ST!) Mile. Josse. of Cher
bourg, and in 1380 Mr. Crockford, of Dieppe,
an English ship owner, repeated the experi
ment. My guests tremble a good deal out
side the door, but once inside the cage seem
to master their emotion. The women al
ways show more pluck."
I had been looking out of the window of
tje billiard room, and had seen some pea
cocks strutting about the garden.
"Are you superstitious?” I asked.
"Ah! No. 13."
‘"No. I alluded to the peacock.”
"I am not superstitious at all. That is all
nonsense about 13. Would vou not rather
take 13,000f. than 12.0001' ? Of course.
” ell, then, Alexiano is superstitious, and so
is my wire. Sh > dreads a Friday on the
loth of the month, and won't stir out of the
house nor buy anything on such a day. I
gave ruy first performance in Paris on Fri
day. the lath of the month, and it was in
Paris £ made my great success. For, as you
see, I have been very successful. I attribute
my success to my firmness of will and to
economy. Economy is the great secret. I
was very pnor and very unhappy when I
was a lad. You see me now, at 47, rich,
prosperous and famous. Will, will and en
ergy are the weapons a man needs. With
these I mastered my lions first, and the
world afterward. But to succeed you must
have money, and if you have no fortune
you must save. This is what I did.”
THE COST OF A LION’S KEEP.
“Apropos of economy, you must have
heavy expenses •”
"Yes. i calculate my expenses in Paris at
about 12,000f. a month, and it is at
Paris we spend least. At Bordeaux I spent
l,loof. a day, and of course when we
are traveling in our special train we spend
far more. The expenses include foci for
the beasts, rent for space, and the tax on
entertainments, which goes to the public
assistance office. I use one horse a (lay to
feed my animals. We give them beef
twice a week. One day in the month they
fast. A lion eats twenty pounds of flesh
per diem, and drinks two quarts of cow’s
milk every morning. The polar bears get
fisli oil twice a week. Then there is the
loss of the beasts to be considered. There
is terrible mortality by consumption
among lions, and a fion is worth
from 20,000t‘. to 30,000f. The cost price
of a lion, untamed, is £BOO. That is what I
paid for Sultan, whp is now worth at least
£2,000. He is the most magnificent speci
men of a black-maned Atlas lion in Europe.
You must consider the capital we have to
sink in our ‘subjects’ when you calculate
our expenses. On the other hand, the re
ceipts are good. Neuiliy fair is one of the
most productive of the places we visit. We
give two performances every night and
make a daily average receipt of £OO, On.
Sundays wo usually make £IOO or £l2O, but
with six performances at reduced prices. I
forgot to mention one item of expense,
which is the band. We only employ French
men. and they are more expensive than Ger
mans. I have not had a single German em
ploye since 1871. You saw what a fuss was
made because my colleague Pezon had a
German band. He has had to dismiss them
and employ Frenchmen. The Germans are
being houuded out of every establishment
in the business.”
M. Bidel then again invited me to take a
cue, which I did. to my complete discom
fiture. While playing I asked him if in the
daytime he ever felt any apprehension of
danger. He answered that he never had
any such feelings. His days were spent in
quiet home life in the company of his wife
and children —a sturdy little boy and a re
markably beautiful girl of Ifi, who appears
to lie wonderfully intelligent and advanced
m her education. “I cultivate my roses and
of an afternoon I plav billiards. In the
evening I drive over to Neuillv and conduct
my entertainment. You have seen to-day
how we live. It is never otherwise.”
The King of North America.
From the San Francisco Examiner.
“Lord Patrick McCartey, King of North
This was the inscription on a card which
a queer-looking little old man, in high Wel
lington boots and linen duster and
trousers handed an Examiner man at
the Palace Hotel yesterday .morning. The
(xld litt'.e man wore an anitque high hat of
the style of fifty years ago. and his high
white colar and huge black tie further aided
to make him a marked man among the
mauy stylish people there. Altogether he
seemed to lie a very Rip Van Winkle in an
tiquity of make-up.
The'King had bowed graciously when the
reporter made himself known to him.
“I have been King since 1860,” said his
roval highness, “and I am just now waiting
for her gracious majesty. Queen Kapiolani,
to receive me. I sent up my card a while
ago, but they sent word down that the
Queen was asleep and could not see me till
“It's that fellow Dominis that's a-doin' of
it. He’s trying to influence her royal high
ness against me. He better look out anil
she better look out. Thev're in trouble and
probablv ther'll want a little assistance from
me before thev get through. I’m willing to
aid them but I want to if treated properly.
Everbody knows that North America is no
small country to rule over. It is no pigmy
kingdom, like Hawaii, and as for that tri
fling littieganlen spot that Dominis isGover
nor of, I wouldn't spit, on it. No, sir; I
would not. so help me.”
And the King, ns he said this, straightened
himself back on the chair in the Palace cor
ridor, which h" was using as his throne,
and tipped his battered plug hat on the back
of his head. Crossing one Wellington boot
on ttie other he continued:
"I would have ousted Cleveland and all
the rest of them before now. but I thought
I tvi ntd iust let things run along while I

THE MYSTERIOUS MOTHER.
That Sad, Tear-Stained Face Pressed
Against the Window Pane.
From the Cincinnati E >'r
The inhabitants of Hard •n, a little
village four miles north of I. neeburg,
are considerably worked up ov.v the mys
terious appearance as well as disappearance
of a handsome and neatly attired young
lady who alighted from a west-bound pas
senger train on the Big Four Road at Law
renceburg Junction carrving n halve in her
arms; and, after wandering along the pike
until darkness had overtaken her. applied
at the humble residence of William Smothers
for a night's lodging and something to cat.
The infant, a tender blue-eyed girl, was ele
gantly clothed, and appeared in excellent
health, white the mother was pale, emaciated,
and evidently quite ill. She gave her name as
Mrs. Delayer, said she was 21 years of
age and lived in New York; that her

WORN OUT WITH TRAVEL,
had concluded to stop off of tlje train and
take a few days of needed rest, and was
willing to pay" liberally for her care and
entertainment, at the same time exhibiting
a large roll of money and presenting her
kind hostess with a small sum as a forerunner
of coming generosity on her part if they
kept quiet about her presence and accorded
her and her baby the hospitality of their
unpreteutious home. The honest and un
suspecting family were completely capti
vates! with the address and manners of their
guest, and the best the place afforded was
at her command. After disposing of a light
supper she requested to be shown a lied, and
soon retired, but at various intervals
through the night the accommodating
family, who were sheltering the troubled
stranger, were awakened
BY HER DISTRESSING SOBS
that told of sleep tieing driven from wearied
eyes by streaming tears, and that a heart of
sorrow forbids the wooings of slumber,
while hours of grief were chasing rest from
the body. Early yesterday morning she
arose, and after learning all about the run
ning of trains on the road near by, a short
time before the arrival of the west-bound
train she expressed her determination to
conclude her trip to Indianapolis, and pro
posed to leave the babe with the Smothei s
family for a few days uutil she could finish
her business at the Hoosier capital and re
turn, promising to pay them most munifi
cently for the care of her infant when she
should come again. The unsophisticated
Mrs. Smothers, with her heart full of
sympathy for the poor stranger, kindly
consented to the proposition. The
young mother bestowed a score of linger
ing kisses on the innocent face of the soon
and then hastened to the depot to take the
train for Indianapolis. She refused to pur
chase a ticket of the agent, but boarded the
train, and when the conductor came around
for her fare she desired to pay only to the
first station, whicli was Guilford. Here she
left the cars and waited until the next train
goining in an opposite direction came along,
when she again went aboard and traveled
hack again over the route she had just gone,
but failed to dismount at the station she had
left an hour before. She continued on to
ward Cincinnati: yet her curiosity or mater
nal desire to again look upon the home where
she had forsaken her own child compelled
her to leave her seat in the car and gaze out
of the window in the direction of her aban
doned babe, and several parties who had

it passed against the glass of the ear win

the station where they had twice seen in less
than an hour’s time the same strange woman
both going and coming, their wonder as
sumed the wings of gossip, and a hundred
rumors about the unknown female tilled the
air. Who she was. where she came from and
why she aliandoned her offspring are ques
tions that may be answered in the future,

her conversation and manners she gave
evidence of a lady of education and refine

hide the evidence of her shame.
