THE TICER AGAIN.
A correspondent at Byaduk writes that all the dogs in the township were very much excited the other night, and their barking was so incessant that few of the residents failed to notice that the animals were giving the moon, or something else, an unusually fierce baying. Next morn ing Mr. Falkenberg found four of his sheep lying dead in the paddock, and when
searching for the cause he dropped on either a uew Tantanoola- tiger or the same old animal that broke away from its circus years ago. It seems that the tiger was bigger than ever, for Mr. Falkenberg describes it as being about as big as most horses, and of the colour of all properly bredtigers, which do notexhibit hereditary taint of any kind. Like most of the
Tantanoola tigers that have been dis covered, Mr. Falkenberg's animal was Bhy and it retired from tho presence of a man and two dogs with all possible expedition. Mr. Folkenberg says his dead sheep were bitten all over by some foroc'ous destroyer of unfortunate animals which are unable to protect themselves from tho savage beasts that are always bobbing up soino where in this tiger-infested country, and the residents are excited at the prospect of securing the brute.
