MAN AND BEAST FIGHT. A fight between a man and a panther leaves the historic man-and-dog fight far behind. Moreover, the panther story has the advantage of being true. A Pathan in Perak shot at a panther which was engaged in the undignified occupation of robbing a hen-roost. The bullet only grazed the beast, which at once "went for" the Pathan, no doubt with an easy assurance of speedily settling his account. But the panther reckoned without Pathan muscles, which are notoriously tough. He fouad himself seized by the mouth and throat and held as though he were in a vice. There was a fierce struggle, but the Pathan never relaxed his hold; and presently assistance came, and the animal was shot. So tightly bad Sariff Khan held his enemy that its windpipe was found to be broken in three places. That was a splendid feat courage tiid strength, and one's only regret in reading of it is that the victor in the unequal struggle was not an Englishman.
