Yesterday afternoon' a tragical
incident occurred in the Zoological
Ganlen. A Times reporter hap
penel to alight from a street car
beneath the railroad bridge in
proximity to the Garden, siniul
tacpasly with a handsome young
matron, a nursc-girl with a baby in
her arm?, and a pretty child about
four years old. The lady was rich
ly attired, and so juvjcTiilo was her
apt.i ranee that any observer
might have thought she was prob
ably the sister or aunt of the little
one lhat toddled beside her. A
moment afterward a light wagon,
occupied by a good looking, well
uresseu man, ana a livened ser
vant, approached at a rapid gait. !
As it passed the youcg man stai :V
inquisitively at the lady, who was
just entering the gateway, looked
back, and a moment afterward
pulbdlip. paid the entrance fee,
and went rapidly up the walk in
the direction the lady and her com
panions had taken. . It was evident
to the most nonchalent observer
that he was smitten by her beauty.
, On the brink ,of the sknting pond
the reporter again saw the lady and
her change:?,'' and. saw the. I'Hlegir
