The Famine in Brazil.
Bad as is the condition of the suffering
poor ot Ireland, it seems to sink into in-
signncance Deiore tne horrors of pestilent
ial f online in the Provinces of Brazil. Five
undred thousand people have died from
f amine and pestilence within 8,000 miles
from New York, in that district known as
the Serarra. This region is dry six months
ii the year, the other half being rainy, and
is subject to periodical drougtbs. The
present one is the most terrible on record,
commencing in 1877 and continuing with
but little Earn at isolated points and in the
hill country to the present time. The first
sesson all the grass dried up and not any
verdure was to be seen except a little on a
few fertile hill sides. The next year it
did not rain at all. with the exception of a
few light showers here and there. In the
spring of 1878 the people were starving,
and panick-stricken they fled from the in
terior to the eities on the coast on font
the horses were dead and they had no oth
er means of conveyanos. From the Pro
line of Ceara 150.000 died on ths road.
and this was only a sample of others.
They formed into immense camps and died
by hundreds daily. Many of them were
entirely destitute of clothing, there bones
showing through the thin covering of flesh.

A good Christian lady had often visited
Jennie, and desired her prayers for her
intemperate husband, from whom she had
been separated for nine yeajg. They re
quested to meet in Jennie's room, where
they could have the benefit of a talk with
her, After Jennie had conversed with
him upon his condition, the wife made a
very earnest and impressive prayer. This
was followed by a prayer from Jennie.
The husband, at least, acknowledged re
oeiving the coveted blessing. At the
same time Jennie felt as if a mighty hand
was laid upon her chest and back, opno-

a great and im
press! ve unrisinir of the cat in m in,,..
trated periodical literature. Our juvenile
magazines and ncwspaiiers ess9cially
teem with wxid-cuts of cats in humorous
situations. We are shown an oppressed
cat undergoing a practical joke at the
hands of some wicked boy, or a triumph
ant cat perpetrating some comic feat at
me expense ot a stupid dog or child. The
unanimity with which our comic nni-t
have perceived the availability of the cat
as an element of comic art is certally very
remarkable, and it cannot be denied that
their use of the animal is usually very sue.
Undoubtedly, the funoftl ichi comic pnl
pictures lies in the incongruity of associa
ting anything like humor w ith an animal
icriy nevoid ol that quality. Thecat
lilislilie to the till Of Its tail. It never
condescends to play, and in no circum
stances loses its perfect dignity of manner.
What is sometimes mistaken for playful-
urs in me cat is nothing more than a re
hearsal ol the gymnastic Rats which arc-
essential to its professional duties. The
Kitten chases a string in order to develo
the as-ilitv and command nfmnvix u-i,;
are needful in chasing mice and birds,
aud the mature cat, when she has camrht a
mouse, goes over the w hole process of the
capture again anu again as a mere matter
of practice. The idea of anything so friv
olous as play or amusement unquestiona
bly never enters into the cats head. This
habitual seriousness and strict attention
to business is the cause of the veneration
which the Egyptians showed to the cat.
They regarded it as a god merely because
it never smiles and never iokes. So sol
emn an animal must be, they thought, su
perhuman. Without doubt, had a Btray
German visited Egypt, the Eirvntiana
ould have instantly deified him liecjmsp
of his inability to comprehend a joke.
When an artist represents a cat in a hu
morous situation, the inconirruitv of the
tiling amuses us. It is precisely the same
with germans. For a long time the Ger
man has been a fruitful subject of humor,
for the sole reason that he is personally
utterly devoid of humor. We are amused
when a story-teller or a comic artist rep
resents a German in intimate association
with something humorous, because of the
enormous incongruity of the idea. It has
laaeu us somen nut longer to perceive
that in this respect the cat is available as
the German, and now that we have ncr-
ceiyed it, there is danger that the present
artistic cat "boom" will grow to unplcas-
ntly large dimensions.
1 here are many interesting aneodotes il-
ustrating the wonderful iutelliirence of
the cat, and among tne-m we can incident-
uy una striking evidence of the cat scorn-
lete laok or humor. Ihere was a large
iaiiese car. tne nronerlv or a nrnnnnent
washerwoman of Chioago, who contrived
a scheme of supplying his table with
choice mice without personal exertion.
He made the acquaintance of an active
and intelligent terrier, and employed the
latter to catch mice for him, paying for
mem in nones, the oat collected a large
stock of bones, which he kept in the hol-
of a tree, out of reach of the dog. and
never produced until a bargain was con
summated. A large flat stone served as a
counter, and on this the dog would deposit
a mouse when offering it for sale. The
cat would examine the mouse closely and
wuuiu always auect to disparage it. ihe
og wouiu insist mat it was a remarkably
ne spring mouse, and rejecting- with dis-
lain the cat's first offer, would oick up the
mouse and pretend to carry it away. Then
the cat would call him back, and after a
long discussion and much sharp bargain

ing, an agreement would be reached Ths
cat would then olimh up to his bone safe,
snrl bring down the amount of bones
sgieed upon, after which the dog would
retire, leaving the mouse in the oat's pos
session The cat was far from liberal in
his dealings, and tho ruling rales for a
good average-sized mouse were oneohicken
leg bone or two wing-bonsa, carefully de
nuded of meat. It i, evident that he must
have made a profit of at least a hundred
per cent, on these transactions, esisscially
as he stole his entire capital of bones; but
such is ever the way io which the cunning
and unscrupulous imK)se upon the honest
and hard working.
One day the dog brought -for sale a par
cularly attractive mouse. He claimed
hat he had caught it in a menagerie, and
that it was an imported hnr,.i.,i...i ,
of immense value. Thecat was evidently
aken with the appearance of the mouse,
but at first refused to offer more than the
regular price. At length, after much
sharp language and profanity, a bargain
was struck, and thecat paid n entire rib
of roast beef, with a quarter of a pound of
good meat adhering to it. No sooner had
?"FJ '""""''l his pay than he broke in

he had p ayed on the penurious cat, but the
cat could not see a trace of anything hu

him, and drove him into . tree. Even
then thecat failed to be amused, and there
