A TIGER ADVENTURE. I News has arrived by the latest mail of a bad accident to Mr. G. Ricketts, Deputy Conservator of Forests, Mysore Service, who is well-known in Bangalore, while out tiger shooting near Arsikere, Mysore Province, with the British Resident, Sir James Bourdillon. The party comprised Sir James, Captain R. F. Standage, I.M.S., and Mr. G. Ricketts, and several others, Mr. Ricketts being on foot with the beaters throughout. The rest of the party were in machans in trees. Captain Standage had the luck of first shot, but only wounded the tiger, of which there were three in the beat. Mr. Ricketts then followed up the wounded animal, a foolhardy action, which has before this lost many valuable lives in India, Coming upon the-as he thought-dead animal, he threw a stone at it, whereupon it promptly charged him, and knocked him down. Captain Standage, who, apparently, had also followed, then shot the tiger through the head. Mr. Ricketts was picked up unconscious, and it was decided on his being j brought in to Bangalore to amputate his arm from the shoulder. Blood poisoning was still feared, however, when the mail left, although the sufferer was free from fever.
