In the summer of 179s, when society in Ulster was completely disorganized a poor woman too weary to go fur ther was set Down with her baby and a Large trunk at Tho inn door. A night s lodging was requested and the tired traveler placed herself by the fireside while supper was being prepared.

A Good Deal of whispering in Irish took place which she being n Derry woman could not understand but Tho Host As he sharpened knives upon the Board seemed to nod toward her in a threaten ing manner.

We have recently heard an interesting anecdote by which one can deduce a moral and adorn it into a tale of How cond thought so often prevents vast complications. There is a Yankee skip per from Ilarue Well known As a local Ruder opt. Pitcher. He is like most to men Large proportioned and pow Erful. Some years ago he ran the Krauz rom Washington to Boston but has seen abroad since trading Between this country and the continent.

Quickly the Yankee made for the gang Way striking Down every Man who in tar cred leaped into his gig and pulled off to his bark. Straight to the Ameri can Consul he went and put his Case be fore him. The latter told him he would attend to the matter and the nest Day the skipper called. The Consul sat at Tho Center of the table to his right was Tho English officer no other than vice Admiral sir James Hope k. C. 13., in All Tho splendor of full uniform. Admiral Hope capt.

Although the gradual spread of the population toward the Interior of Africa is driving the wild animals further and further Inland and though they Are consequently difficult to reach in the More inaccessible haunts to which Thoy have retreated yet the larger wild Ani Mals have with one or two exceptions scarcely suffered any diminution from the advancing tide of civilization. Ostriches have suffered perhaps the most but Only to Exchange u wild for a domesticated state. Elephants Are frequently seen within a Short distance of Southern and Southeastern coasts. Hip pop Otami Are abundant. Even the larger beasts of prey Are by no Means uncommon and Tiger. Are especially de predators. If the reports of Diamond diggers in the Northwest Are to be believed a new animal has lately male its appearance As a candidate for the Honor of being chased by an enterprising sportsman. It is called by the Bushman or natives the Bear and is de scribed As being about the size of a lion but far stronger in make and a tremendous head and neck. Its legs Are much Shorter than a Lions but much stouter and it is apparently far More powerful. Its color is a dark yellow with Black spots. It runs or creeps along the ground but does not bound like a lion.

Whatever an ounce of prevention May bit to other members of the body it certainly is Worth Many pounds of cure to the Eye. Like a chronometer watch this delicate Organ will stand any amount of use not to say abuse but when once thrown off its balance it very rarely can be brought Back to its original perfection of action or if it is it be comes Over after liable to a return of disability of function or the seat of actual disease. One would have sup posed from this fact and from the fact that modern civilization has imposed upon the Eye an Ever increasing amount of Strain both As to the actual amount of work done and the constantly increasing brilliancy and duration of the illumination under which it a performed that the great Otic would have been exercised in maintaining the Organ in a condition of health and the greatest care and solicitude used in Ito treatment when diseased.

It took m. De Remusat a Long time to teach him to shave him self the Chamberlain was moved to this through Napoleon s visible uneasiness when in the Barber s hands. If a garment did not please him it was torn off and thrown on the floor or into the fire. To trimming his nails of which he was vain he used countless pairs of scissors that were smashed off hand if they were not Sharp. The Only perfume he was partial to was Cologne of which he required sixty bottles a month. He ate and drank Little though to was very fond of Coffee.

Nutmeg grow on Little Trees which look like Small Pear Trees and Are generally Over Twenty feet High. The flow ers Are very much like the Lily of the Valley. They Are Pale and very Fra Grant. The Nutmeg is the seed of the fruit and Mace is the Thiu covering Over this seed. The fruit is about As Large As a peach. When Ripe it Breaks open and shows the Little nut inside. The Trees grow on the islands of Asia and in tropical America. They Bear fruit for seventy or eighty years having Ripe fruit upon them at All seasons. A Fine tree in Jamaica has Over Nutmeg on it yearly. The dutch used to have All this Nutmeg Trade As they owned the Banda islands and conquered All the other and destroyed the Trees. To keep the Price up they once burned three piles of Nutmeg each of which was As Largo As a Church. Nature did not sympathize with their mean Ness. The nut Meg Pigeon found in All Tho Indian islands did for the world what the dutch determined should not be the nuts which Are their food into All the surrounding countries Aud Trees grew up again and the world had the Benefit. Stuart s artistic treatment of tie eyes. Stuart the Painter once executed the portrait of a lady in new York who was fussy critical Over exacting and Nice to a degree that tried in the Fez Treme his rather excitable tempera ment. The portrait was changed again and again the Shade of the hair the color of the eyes the expression of the month the pose of the head the arrangement of the drapery Etc., were repeatedly altered at Tho suggestion of the lady one Day Madame came in with several friends to see the portrait and As usual she began to criticise and said i do not think or. Stuart you have Given my eyes the right express the patience of the artist was exhausted he could stand no More. Walking up to Tho portrait and draw ing Back his fist he thrust it through the Canvas and exclaimed in Blunt but vigorous Anglo Saxon your throwing the Canvas aside portrait was finished. He had Given it the last touch. Growing old. 1 is we Are All growing old though unconsciously and the current of life flown on smoothly As Ever indeed Fuller the current the More noise ii a. The flow. And months and years Are after ail so very much alike that they pats without special observation and we begin to get old before we think of in. Aud when we sit Down to a simple sum in sub traction of. The year of our birth from the current arc astonished at the answer and Are so doubtful of its correctness that we go Over it a second time but always with the same result. Children grow up around us but we get used to that and Seldom atop to compute their Ages and realize Tho Swift flight of the years. In fact our children never get old to us. The wife who has stood lovingly and faithfully at our Side so Long never changes and is always the fair Young Bride of the old and Happy Days. And so with Hus the wife. Though his hair might have grown Gray in some Way which we do not understand Aud his firm step May seem a Little loss elastic or firm than it was. The husband doers not seem to have changed much after All. He is to us Tho same Strong Manly one whom we loved so much and to whom we confided so much just a Little while ago. To be sure the few friends of our youth that remain Are All Gray headed but we do not think much of that for to All seem to be using the same fashionable hair Dye. There is nothing a that to attract special attention. Some have been a has raid that if we doubt whether we arc really growing old we should look in the face of a Friend whom we have not keen Lur Twenty years. The preacher tried that a few s ago. To did More he looked in the face of a Friend whom he had not seen for nearly forty what his thought of him was he dots not now. They were both too polite i express their thoughts. He knows that he kept wondering and wonders yet what had happened to his Friend that he should look so very old. True stories about animals.

He added does John Bonnell know you re out of your the Buffalo asked him if the use of celluloid in the manufacture of billiard balls had affected the Ivory Trade enough to sour his temper but the Tiger said the discussion had wandered from the subject and was growing too per Ronal. And he added Licking his chops hungrily As the keeper passed too close to his Cage it was about and As he did t feel very Well that morning a Little manna d be about All he cared and then As he made a pass at the wary keeper and missed him he added that if he could t have it about thirty five pounds of rare beef would do. And then the keeper passed around the usual refreshments and the menagerie speedily ate itself to Haick Eye.

Some score or so of contributors to a French sporting journal dined one Day upon the Hanu and heart of a lion killed by constant Cheret in Algeria. The flesh of the lion was found to be particularly firm and close grained Liko that of a horse but although pronounced palatable it Only achieved what h termed a Success d Stirne while the heart skilfully prepared with to files was unanimously voted Tough and indigestible.

Saw the elephant and died. That there is u limit to elephantine endurance was proved Long ago by the dismal drenching administered to a cer Tain tailor of Delhi whose excessive hardiness with the Needle prompted my to offer gratuitous and unprovoked insult to a huge pachyderm which of traded the tip of its trunk upon his notice As he sat in his shop window. A. Still More terrific reprisal than this has recently been exercised by a vexed ele Phant upon an imprudent person who trifled with the colossal beast s appetite it provoked it to ungovernable fury. The elephant in question constituted the great attraction of a trav Eling menagerie that arrived in Amster dam a few Days ago and was permitted to Camp out in one of the Public Gar Dens there. An old gentleman inspired by the elephant s amiable expression of countenance with the conviction that maharajah would stand any amount of teasing proceeded to of Fer a tempting Lump of bread to the Ani Mal deftly withdrawing it however beyond the reach of maharajah s trunk each time that receptacle was thrust Forth to grasp it. The ocular perform Ance having been repeated several times the elephant suddenly stepped Forward close to his Side of the railing seized his Tormentor s body in his trunk lifted him clean Over the Barrier interposing Between them and hurled him to the ground. Having got his enemy Down maharajah trod upon him with such indic tire vehemence that when the much too merry old gentleman was finally got out of the enclosure he was London Telegraph. Thoughts.
