Si A TALE OF A TIGER.

SDR. DELANEY, Surgeon H. M. Troopship

\ "2 read a pathetic appeal from the Com-
mittee of the Zoological Society of his
S\ native city, in Ireland, for contributions
of any rare bird, beast, or reptile, -
X-I,^P which DR. D. responded to by sending
them a Snake, receiving in return a
-- letter of thanks and a printed Certificate
of Fellowship. This little reptile that wriggles in and out of the story for a moment, was
the primary cause of the following sketches ; as, fired with ambi--
tion to deserve another Certificate, &c.; he wrote to a friend, '
up country," to send him anything in the Zoological way he
might come across. In due time, he was advised that a fine young Tiger was on its
way to him. Holy Turf! a Toiger! I didn't bargain
For quite so big a consignment as that."
That night he dreamt

So, photography's gentle

on the table, as quiet as a lamb, so long as the PHOTOGRAPHER was moving about the
gallery, but the moment his head disappeared, under the black cloth, down would jump
TiPPOO, and playfully "stalk" him. It is due to his memory,- for, alas! he has now

"joined the majority "- to state, that he was not conquered, until he had imbibed

" THE Committee of the Dundrum Zoological Gardens present their sincere compliments

to Dr. DELANEY, and beg leave to express their gratitude for his thoughtful, considerate,

and public-spirited action, in obtaining and offering them a "Tiger;" but with sorrow, they

are compelled to admit, that the D. Z. G. are now in their infancy, funds low,-and Tigers

consume so much animal food, and require a special class of attendants,- they consequently

regret, exceedingly, that they are compelled to decline,

S" If Dr. DELANEY would renew his offer

in a few years, they would feel grateful, and

reconsider their decision.


P. S. Could he, now, get
