A LION AS WATCH DOG. A Dalziel's telegram from Bridgeport (Con- neefticut) sass :-On Thursday night the house of Mr. Callahan was the scene of a daring bur- glary, frustrated by a domestic animal of the rarest type. The family received some time ago from a member of Barn urn's Circus, a lion cub, not. larger than a oat, and determined to bring it up in the house. The lion seemed perfectly tame, aaid slept in the basement. On Thurs- day night the Callahans were aroused from their sleep by awful shrieks uttered hv a human being below. They rushed downstairs, and saw a- man trying to escape through the broken win- dow, but dragged back by their watchful lion, who. with his claws, was tearing the burgher's clothes, and would have indicted severe punish- ment on him. but for their opportune arrival. Profiting by the diversion, the man jumped through the window, and the Callahans only with the areatest difficulty prevented the lion from pursuing the fugitive.
