SATURDAY, MAKCII 10, 1883.
THE ELEPHANT WHO DID NOT SEETHE
The Rev. Mr. "Wntson gives n very
curious story in illustration of this
animal's wonderful long memory of n
wrong suffered. One of those pests
of society, "a practical joker,"
visited n enrnvnn in a West of Kng.
land fair and tried his stupid tricks
upon an elephant there. lie first,
doled out to it, one by one, some
gingerbread nuts, and when the
grateful animal was thrown off its'
guard, he suddenly proffered it a
large parcel wrapped in paper. The
unsuspicious creature accepted and
swallowed the lump, but immediately
began to exhibit signs of intense
suffering, and snatching up a bucket
handed it to the keeper for water.
This being given to It, it eagerly
swallowed quantities' of the lluid.
"IIul" cried the delighted joker,
' lI guess those nuts were a tritle hot,
old fellow." "You had better be off,"
exclaimed the keeper, "unless you
wish the bucket at your head." The
fool took the hint only just in time,
for the enraged animal, having
finished the sixth bucketful, hurled
the bucket after its tormentor with
such force that had he lingered a
moment longer his life might have
been forfeited. The affair had not,
however, yet concluded. The follow
ing year the show revisited the same
town, and the foolish joker, like men
of bis genius, unable to profit by
experience, thought to repeat his
stupid trick on the elephant. He
took two lots. of uutstinto the show
with him, swtct nuts in one pocket
and hot in the other. The elephant
had not forgotten the jest played
upon him, and therefore accepted the
cakes verj cautiously. At last the
joker proffered a hot one ; but no
sooner had the injured creature dis
covered its pungency, than it seized
hold of its persecutor by the coat-tailp,
hoisted him up by them, and held
him until they gave way, wlicn he
fell to the ground. The elephant
now inspected the severed coat-tails
which, after he had discovered and
eaten all the sweet nuts, he tore to
rags and flung after their discomfited
owner. Chamber J Journal.
