The "buffalo hunt" in which the t wo
sons of the Prince of Wales were in
dulged at Ceylon recently, was a painful
sliMtrdilv. It. was forbidden that tho
two burly boys should run any risk of
injury, so a tame buffalo was turned out,
and, after being chased by dogs, was
shot down by one of the Princes- a most
ignoble piece of butchery. This reminds
a London writer of u bear hunt which
occurred in Sweden years ago. A royal
Prince li.nl to be entertained, and so a
bear hunt was got up for him. At last
the animal was circumvented. Tho
Prince raised his gun to lire; tho bear
began to dance. It was a tame one,
which hat) been bought of its showman
and turned out.
One thing in the treatment of work
horses in hot weather wo are disposed
to deprecate, viz.: Tho custom of water
ing them three limes a day, and no
more. It is simply cruelty on tho part
of man toward his beast to compel the
team to plow or mow from early morn
ing until noon, or from noon until night,
without allowing it thn privilege of a
refreshing draught. It is inconvenient,
many times, to water tho team during
the forenoon or afternoon, and wo aro
not apt to think the time thus taken
lost, but, when the fanners' luilleniura
comes, there will probably be drinking
in every field, supplied from some eh
valed spring, or from a running stream.
In the meanwhile, time "lost" in doing
good, even though it may bo in behalf
of the dumb animals, is well "lost" it
may be regained. Could they speak, it
