Interesting Union Lecture on "Tiger Shooting"

Dr. William Lord Smith '86 gave an interesting illustrated lecture in the Living Room of the Union last evening on "Tiger Shooting; and Travels in Korea, China, and Java." Besides giving vivid details of killing tigers on the ridges of Korea, in the coves of southeastern China, and in the jungles of Java, he threw many side-lights on the strange life and stranger customs of the people. In the opinion of the lecturer the best and biggest tigers are found near the sea in southeastern China. These are all man-eaters and live in the deep caves in the very rocky country. He told of crawling into one cave, and seeing by torchlight a large tigress with a human skull lying before her.
