EXVY AND COMPASSION.
It was a beautiful spring, day. Tb. sky
was blue, the little birds twittering in the
tree torn made the earth gay with their
aotig. Through the prren forest might have
been reen two children walking, a brother
and a aster.

Tb boy aud girl were alone in the world,
their father and mother having died; and
Bow they were starting out like the children
of fairy tale to seek their fortunes.

Neidhart had strapped round his own body
the hag of gold coins which had been left
them both, and the few jewels be had taken
car. to tlirust Into bis own pocket, while hit
tuter was allowed to keep only one small
hoop that her mother had worn on her finger
for many years.
But Mitleld, with her sunny spirit, was
quite contented with this division, and at the
time of which I have been sieaking, sli stu
sVired along after Neidhart, nodding to tb.
bright colored blossoms that to joyously lifted
their heads from the grass, without once
being tempted to pluck them and cast them

Once she stood still to call up to a cuckoo
on rocking fir branch, that he must
tak. car. or be would mak. himself
boars with hit chatter! Then, again, she
stopped to help an Industrious ant to collect
pine needles which she needed for building
her skillfully contrived new bouse.
But Neidhart neither saw the beauty of
the spring nor heard the bappv voices of the
birds. He was thinking only of all the gold
rings In his possession, and suddenly it seem
ed to hlni that there wer. no more precious
treasures upon this earth than thesenf money
The expression iio his face grew harder
and harder miuutoby minute, and the glanc
of his avil eye grew more and more mali
cious. Foot Neidhart:
"Jut you wait, you stupid child," he mur
mured between his teeth, as he walked along,
"till evening comes. You'll see then how I'll
pull that nug off your finger, and I'll put out
those pretty eyes of yours with my sharp
knife. You alwavs say God protects all good
little children. You can see whether be will
help you to find your way out of this dark
wood when I am gone and you are blind!"
After this he refund to speak another word
to Mltleid, but led ber deeper and deeper Into
the foreHt, where ths trees stood so cloee to
gether that It was quite dark.
Mitleld, thinking no evil, walked trustingly
on behind the wicked boy. She knew that b.
was constantly out of temper, and that he
rarely had a good word for anybody, but
worse than that she could not think of" him.
Tb. path became much rougher as they
went on, so that at last Mitleid's tender little
feet grew sore with walking.
Gradually her strength began to fail.
Finally she sank down she could go no far
ther. 'Lt us rest under this linden tree," en
treated llitleid, breathing fast, as she seated
herself upon an old gnarled stump. "You
must be weary, too, Neidhart," she said, in
her sweet voice.
"A boy h not so easily tired, you silly thing,
you I And for that reason you and I are go
ing to part company. But you may give me
that ring first. It Is much too good for you!"
"Oh, dear brother! it is the only thing 1
have belonging to my denrest mother"
"Be quiet!" interrupted Neidhart harshly,
at the same time roughly teiziug her delicate
little wrist. "If you dont give it to in. will
ingly you U repent It in trice!"
Mitleld was quite terrified by her brother's
unaccustomed fierceness. She tat still with

a word; but she gazed up into his face with

from every dlrei-tion at once.

to her joy found strength had been given her
to reach th. topmost branch.
Her. her alarm subsided. Her eyes gav.
ber bitter pain, but after a little this becaiu.
more bearable, and soon she was able to oc
cupy her thought with th. voice that arose
from the foot of th. liudeu.
This was th. night w hen all th. animals,
great and small, meet together under that
linden tree. One. a year tbey do this, and

"if th. king there in his castle beyond th.

cealed in th. depths of th. woods by ths rob

"There are pearl and jewel buried ber. la

Meanwhile tb. morning had come. Tb.
animals now befan to wish each other a po
lite farewell, and each went hi own way.
Mltleid spent littl. tims In thought With
a short prayer to tb. holy Father of us all, sue
bathed ber eyes with the dew from the linden
tree, and behold I a miracle was performed.
Mitleld aw otic mora th. rosy sky, th.
flowers tliat she loved, and the whole won

grateful heart sua thanked ber Lord for his
mercy in putting an end to her sufferings.
Slowly and carefully th. littl. girl descend

which direction sb. should tak. In order to
reach the king's castle as soon as possible.
There was in the distano a sound of fes
tivity that quiet morning. Tb. church bell
war. ringing for the early service. Tb.
bell served as a guide to Mltleid, and full of
happiness and courage th. started forth.

Yet, It "a true; he was totally blind.
Mitleid went modestly op to tb. king, In a

something that the waa lur would give him

Th. kin;; bowed pleasantly. Tb. sound of
this twee, young voice had moved him
strangely, and teeing this, all turned wonder

words in w hlch to thank Mitleid.
"Child, hild," he faltered at last, while he
fondly stroked th. fair curb of the lovely
child, "eve-y wish shall be granted you."
Then Mitleid quickly entreated the king to

While the Sport Is Eiritlng It Seldosa
No knacke -'s yard horses are brought into
the ring to b butchered unresisting. There
are no picad rs of the low Spanish type, with
horses incapi ble of flight from the bull, the
Portuguese k-ador being generally a gentle
man by birtl of a class, that is, with whom
the management of the "great Home" is a
traditional t ccompllshment. He is neither
protected b armor nor does be carry any
weapon either of offense or of defense. Horse
and ruler p eserve the traditions of this an
cieat chivalr us art; the rider by wearing a
rich, gold uv ed costume of the sixteenth cen
tury, the ho ta by his careful training and
magnificent i Uken and gold caparisons.
To eqtialict the odds between the bull and
his baiters, lis horns are tipped; and yet,
even with th s handicapping, the Portuguese
bull has mut h the best of it. He is never
seriously buit; indeed, in my belief, be is
never hurt at all, and he enjoys the delight
tb intense d iligbt, common to all men and
all animals 01 natural courage of being put
in a boundless aud justifiable rage w ith bis
enemies. It is a magnificent sight to see a
bladdhull from the plains of Aleiutejo, a puro,
who has never been fought before, in his
first rage and rush into the ring. He charges
at the first living creature in his path; the
blinder and n adder his rush the safer is tbe
bull figbur. The man holds his scarlet, silk
en cloak in 'ront of him, and. behind its
shelter darts to one side as the bull I on
him, and tbe bull's horns meet ouly the silk
and tbe empty air. A mistake of a fraction
of a escoud in his action may cost the man
bis life, and the right performance of this
difficult feat of cozening the bull with the
cloak is the bt 11 fighter's first elementary ac
quirement When the b ill has run at three or four of
the men and failed each time to gore, tbe
poor lieast is i.isappointed and enraged. Hs
stands in the center of the ring, gazing from
one to anothet of bis foes, hesitating which
to attack first He paws the ground, bellow
ing hoarsely in his anger; hit great muscular
neck is lowered aud raised, in terrible sem
I ance of goring and tossing and killing an
imaginary euejiy, h l tamps on the ground,
and fancies he is trampling an assailant under
bis hoofs. Honietimea be charge, again and
again till his wind and rage are spent.
Sometimes he turns cunning, and, approach
ing one of the men slowly, stalks him with
deadly intent t catch and hold him against
tbe wooden bai rier of the ring and crush tbe
life out of him.
This action k , of course, more to be feared
than tbe bull's blind rushes, and would lead
to more deaths in tb. ring than occur, but

from 5 to 6 feet in height, is provided with a
little ledge a bo it half way from the ground.

was an overgr iwn porpoise which was en

time In order to tak. in a good supply of
frsKh air, but m approaching the strange
object it waa d srovered tu be a wild boar,
which was bea ling for land. Tb. anglers
Immediately set to work In order to capture
the animal, and succeeded in hauling in tbe
boar and in tying him down. They then re
turned home to die island with their prixe,
and caused a great local sensation as they
Tbe news that an extraordinary fish bad

general surprise when It waa ascertained that
the extraordina.-y auimal captured at sea
was not a aerpuit, a whale, an octopus, or
even a member of tb. finny tribe of any
species, but a sat glier. The humane inhabi
tants of the isU ud, aided by tlie local Nira

The following striking hypnotic experi

cian: While treating a young girl in th.

the time, but with open eye. She did at the
was bid, opened the door, and received a let
ter from the carrier, which the brought to
the doctor, without th. man who had brought
it having any idea that th. girl was not in
her normal condition. Tbe doctor then took
the girl with him Into tbe public park, where
he met one of hi friends, to whom he intro
duced her, tbe being all the while hypno
tized. She talked naturally with the friend,
bo that he bad not the least suspicion of her
real condition, and yet, when she was brought
back and awakened, the had no idea of what
bad passed or that the had even left the doc
Bays be who told of this experiment: An
other case 1 will also relate, at the risk, per
haps, of saying thing which no one can be
lieve. This whole subject, however, is so
marvelous that in any discussion of it on
cannot avoid stating these marvelous rasee.
The victim in this second case waa also a
young girl, who was so completely in the
power of a man who lived in another part of
tbe same house that she was utterly unable
to withstand bis will, and felt herself rom
s?lled to do anything that be desired. Being
without moral character, this man took a
malicious delight in compelling the poor girl
to take long walks at various times, and to
do numerous other things, simply to gratify
his pleasure. After this had gone on for
some time the girl began to lose ber health,
and she finally pined away and died, appar
ently on account of the malign and mysteri
ous influence exerted npon her by her tor
mentor. It would be easy to laugh at these
two case and deny their truth In toto, but
