MONDAY, DEC. 2-1, 1883.
POLICE IN CHURCH.
Honolulu is not the only place
wheicthc police mc "seen in the
hoit&c of God." The following is
from the Australasian.
1 It is just possible that our
guardians of the pcaeo may bo over
ecclesiastical, over spiritual, or over
vhtuous, for the pcrfoniancc of their
simple duty. In some of the submbs
sergeants and constables have unex
pectedly turned up as Salvation Army
soldiers, or burning and shining
lights of the Tabernacle and Little
Bethel. This is all very well if the
bjats aic not neglected. In a mining
village on one of the main railway
lines several roughs indulged, un
checked for hours, in brutal mischief
in the main street varying their
amusements from persecuting a
newly-married couple to slaying a
fellow-crcatuic. And wheic was the
local policeman? He, woitliy man,
was attending a church meeting!
Had ho been doing the duty for
which the state pays him the guilt of
lilood-spilling might not now have
stained the hamlet.
In another not distant township a
citizen visiting the police camp to
give information concerning a lar
ceny, found that the three constables
(being the entile police strength of
the disttict) had all gone to the
meeting of a friendly society much
affected by persons of a nationality
and creed from which the police
force is chief! y recruited. Thrift
and religion should not be sneered
at, but neither justifies neglect of
A SACRED BULL FEICNINC DEATH.
A conespondent of Nature gives
the following remarkable examplo of
animal intelligence: "Some yeais
ago, while living in Western Mysore,
I occupied a house surrounded by
several acres of fine pastuic land.
The superior grass in this preserve
was n great temptation to the village
cattle, and whenever the gates were
open trespass was common. My
servants did their best to drive off
the intruders, but one day they
came to mc rather troubled, stating
that a Brahminy bull which they had
beaten had fallen' down dead. It
may be remaiked that these bulls
arc sacred and privileged animals,
hcing allowed to 10am at large and
i'.at whatever they may fancy in the
open shops of the bazaarmen. On
helping that the trespasser was dead,
I im mediately went to view the body,
and t heie sure enough it was lying
exactly as if life were extinct. Be
ing rather vexed about the occur
ence, I did not stay to make any
minute examination, but at once re
turned to the house, with the view
of reporting the affair to the district
authorities. I had only been gone
a short time, when a man, with joy
in his face, c ame running to tell me
.that the bull was on his legs again
'and quietly grazing! Suffice it to
say that the br ute had acquired the
trick of feigning;, death, which prac
tically rendered its expulsion im
possible, when it found itself in a
desable situation which it did not
wish quit. The ruse was prac-tii-cd
frequently, with the object of
enjoying my excellent grass, and
nlthnnrrii for a time amusing, it at
length became tiresome, and resolW
iug to get .rid o him tue sooner, J
one day, when ho ud fflllcu dowtf,
sent to the kitchen for a supply p
hot cinders, which we placed on Ms
rump. At first he did .ot seento
mind this much, but as tlu PP)ca
tion waxed hot, he gradually if8
his head, took a Bteady look a l
site of the cinders, and Anally gttii.l
on his legs, went off at a racingpace,
and cleat ed the fence like i deer.
This was tlio last occasion o,i which
we .were favoied with a viit from
ix, reauy uoes not sec
to bo by
any means a bad game
be a tem
perance lectin er. Mr. Ijrancis Mur
phy, when employed by the Edinburgh
Gospel Temperance ijriion, received
100 for four weeksMvoik, and had
his hotel hill paid. Tho latter item
is br no means inconsiderable, as it
amounted to 52. When I stay at
an hotel I generally' calculate my ex
penditure ati-'l a day, wine included ;
but tempeianco lecturers, who, of
course, abjme alcoholic drinks, must
evidently bo pictty soyeie on the
eatables. If 1 could got 1,200 a
year, and 878,por diem for expen
ses, I would become ainpid Blue
Hibboniat to-morrow. Mr. Murphy,
J, notice, "would hardly go anywheio
without a mh." No nioio would I
jf I could get borne one else to pay
for it. J'jjfc,
