Undo Bob has told ui that a m.mkey
can be taught to do almost anything,
and. if at all kindly treated can be
trained much more quickly than any
other creature. There is a story of one
that used' to walk hand in hand with its
master within a month after it came
into his possession. It would answer
nis call like a serv.int. It was honored
as a guest and had a seat at the table.
It would drink tea or milk out of a

A Fiench traveler named La Vail
lant, who went through Africa became
interested in a chacma monkey, one of
the baboon species, that he Rot at tho
Cape, and which was very useful to him
in his wanderings, lie niauu um "
key, which he called Kees, a sort of
"taster." That is to say, when ho
came to a place where there were nuU
and berries of a kind he had not seen
before, he offered them to Kees. If the
monkey ate them the traveler would do
the same, and anything the monkey
would not touch, the traveler, unless
when he knew better, would avoid as
poison. Kees was of value also during
the night as' well as at meal times. Ho
was the sentinel of the camp. Ho was
alert and gave the alarm at the slight
est sign of dauger. Even the dogs
misted to the monkey.'s watchfulness.
When the party began its journeyings
it was the duty of tho dogs to give
warning when there was any iruuuu.,
but inhume they put such confidence in
Kees that they went soundly to sleep at
every resting place. With monkeys, as
with men, "onegooa ium unenra an
other," and so Keeai tired out with
walking, would now and again leap on
the back of one of the dogs, and get
carried in this way for miles at a
stretch. All the dogs did not like this.
There was one of them that would not
on any account be made a horse of; and
this one took a very cunning way of
getting freed from his rider. He could
not prevent Kees jumping on his back,
but he could do this he could refuse
tr. tnnvA Aa soon as the monkey leap
ed on him he stood perfectly still. The
camp being In motion the aog ana nis
would-be rider were speedily left be

ing, no doubt, that the dog would
change his mind and trot after his com
panions before they had disappeared.
But the dog knew better. As long as
he felt himself burdened he would not
move an inch, and it was always Kees
that had to give in. When this took
place the two animals would set off at
their best speed to overtake the travel
ing party. It was liko a race between
the two, but the dog took care to keep
second place, so that the monkey

trick to play on a cavalry horse. How

me to do. I'll do it or bust a trace."
He didn't understand the pull of the

On returning to tho town a company
of cavalry were drilling on the plain,
and just then an idiot with a bugle be
gan to blow a call and the cavalrymen
started ncross the plaza in company
front- That settled the buggy ride.
"General Grierson" started off on a
run, bugy and all, and wheeled in
front oATie third platoon, three paces
in front, right where he knew there
oiK'ht to be a Second Lieutenant, and
turned his eye to tho right to dress on
the other platoon commanders. The
rear of the buggy was breaking up tho
ranks of the platoon, and wo were
never so embarrassed in the world.
The Captain yelled to us to get out of
the wav, an orderly rode up and took
the ol'f grey bv tho bit, and then it oc
curred to the horse that the buggy was
in the way. and he began to kick it to
pieces. The cross bar and dashboard
were kicked over into the platoon, and
he was just pulverizing the running
"ear and box when a dozen men grab
bed him and we crawled out from under
thn urnwL- and when we eot out the
horse had turned around facing us,
with the shafts still hitched to him, and
he was trying in his horse-sense way,
to tell us what he thought of a caval
ryman that would appear on duty in
such a way, and bring reproach on a
good, honest, well-brought-up horse.
The company stopped drilling to laugh,
broke ranks, and. went into the
Monger House at our expense, the livery-man
took his bugy back on a dray
and the writer paid for the buggy, put
on tho saddle again and rode away, and
the old horse, when we got into the
road turned his head and nibbled the
rider's boot-leg and winked as much as
to say: "There, boss, this is something

My little boy, Dan, had to write an

Dan's turn came to him and he came

hard it was to write those 'ame com
