Bow Thia Animal Gave Indication of
His Owner's Cha -acter.
There Is a story told of a precise old gen
tleman who. having purch.ised a pony for
driving, was annoyed by tie animal stop
ping at every public house -vhich he passed
in his drives. The pony g ive sure indica
tion of the habits of its former owner.
The horse of Kosciusko, the celebrated
Polish general, appears to 'aave had a dif
When the Polish leader was living in
exile in Switzerland he wished to send a
few bottles of choice wine to a clergyman
who dwelt at Solothurn. 1 le intrusted the
wine to a young man named Zelteur, lend
ing him his own. horse on which to per
form the journey. Young Zelteur set out
with the basket of bottles and was canter-
TIIE HOUSE CAME TO A FCXL STOP,
ing along the road when a poor man ap
proached, and pulling off Lis hat asked for
alms. The horse immediately came to a
full stop and refused to move for either
coaxing or threats. This was awkward
for the young man, who had no money,
aud the horse seemed to be waiting for
something: but a bright i lea seized him.
He plunged his hand intol.isempty pocket
and pretended to take oat some money
and made a motion as if j utting it in the
poor man's hat. This he had no sooner
done than the animal trotted on again.
After goins: on for some distance another
begsrar pulled off his hat, and the horse
nain stood still. This t.me Zelteur was
prepared for the occasion, and pretended tar
put money in the man's hat; the animal
went on his way quite satisfied. The wine
wns duly delivered to the clergyman, and
Zelteur, having encountered during the
journey several mendicants, all of whom
he induced the horse to pass by pretending
to give them something, returned to Kos
ciusko and told him he vould never ride
hie horse again unless he also lent him his
'Why so?" asked Koscirjsko. And then
the youug man, much t the general's
amusement, narrated the incidents of the
journey and how he was ol Jiged to pretend
to give something to the poor beggars in
order to satisfy the horse.
An Amazed Africau.
There is nothing whicto causes so much
wonder in the mind of the savage as the
arts of reading and writing, and many
amusing tales are told oi his inability to
understand how "talking paper" works.
An African named Munno was once sent
by one missionary to anoi her with a pres
ent of cocoanuts. As it w.ts a hot day and
he was thirsty, he ate two of them by the
way. When he handed over the others to
the missionary, what was Lis astonishment
to hear the latter remark, .ifter reading the
note that accompanied the present, "How
carelessly 5 ou must have carried the bas
ket; twenty nuts were S';nt and here are
As tiie missionary did not make much of
it Mungo did not enter into particulars,
but he was greatly puzzled. It was evi
dent that the note had given the informa
tion, for as soon as he real it the mission
ary counted the nuts, and so the perplexed
messenger concluded thar, the paper had
been watching him all tje time that he
committed the theft.
Shortly after he wasen again cn a sim
ilar errand, but on this oc asion he was de
termined to circumvent thi "fetish paper,"
aud so before helping himself to the three
tine, fleshy nuts, of which tie made a meal
on the road, he hid the telltale letter un
der a stone and retired to some distance
from it. Having finished his repast he
went back for the note, a ad entered with
confidence the missionary's house.
"All the nuts here dis ye re time, massa,"
he said jauntily.
"Except the three you atseoming along,"
answered the missionary after consulting
Mungo's amazement was now beyond
the power of words to describe, and from
that day forward he might have teen
trusted with uncounted wries, if only a
scrap of "fetish paper" were sent along
