THE 8U SALTERN'S "TAT."
A Useful and Knowing Friend of British
Officers in India.
The si baltem's "tat"' is doubtless un
known t 999 people out of 1,000. To
the small minority he is remembered as
the useful and faithful animal who has
made it possible for officers to perform
their da ly duties when stationed in
India. ' Tat'' is the Hindostanee for
pony, ant the subaltern's "tat" conies into
existence as soon us a regiment marches
into its t antonment, no matter in what
city that maybe. The ''tat" is the common
property of the lieutenants, ;iik1 it is on his
back tho .e hard worked officers spend
much of the day and night when detailed
for orderly officer's duty.
As a ru e the "tat" is bought from the
outgoing -egiment and at the first coming
in of a new corps is really most useful, for
ho knows a good deal more about the geog
raphy of he cantonment and where tho
sentries a e posted than the newly arrived
officers. Though having many masters,
the "tat" lias by no means a bad life of it.
He has his own "syce" or groom, his grass
cutter am as much "gram" as is good for
him. At l o'clock in the morning he is to
be seen ne ir the meaahooae, saddled and
t.aiting fc r the officer, who is inside Lav
ing his n orning coffee, perchance n, "B.
As one j imps into the saddle there is no
need to guide the animal, who knows his
rounds th( roughly, but it is as well before
starting t give him a few lumps of sugar.
It is a kindly thought anyway, and the
pony perh tps starts with n quicker gait
for the quartermaster's stores, where the
orderly officer has to examine the meat
and see tin t each company gi ts its proper
weight of rations. The "tat" always gets
ft crust ot two of bread, but otherwise
takes littl I interest in the proceedings.
At 7 a. in. ' he "tat" takes his daily master
around the barracks and learns whether the
breakfasts ire all correct.
Ai 9 o'clock he attends guard mounting
parade, and looks on with a critical eye,
for he knows that the cleanest, hf at llll Mill ill
man will c selected for orderly, and will
have charg i of him during certain parts of
the day. A fter guard mounting the "tat"
goes back t ) his stable and gets his morn
ing meal, a id by 1 p. m.. when he is wanted
to carry his master around to inspect the
d inner, he 1 xiks sleeker and ln-tter groomed
than he did in the morning. After it litis
been learned that the men have no com
plaints about that meal, the "tat" as a rule
visits the guards and sentries.
The shari inquiry of "Halt! Who goes
there!-" with the answer, '"Visiting
rounds," a id the permission, "Advance
visiting rounds and all's well," with the
clatter of arms as the men come to the
"shoulder" r "post" has no effect upon
him. He appears, however, to put on a
supreme look of surprise when some re
cruit breaks down in giving tin-orders of
his post, and cocks his ears ineredulously
at the man'; stammering.
The afternoon, as a rule, is a time of
rest for the 'tat," nnd it is only when the
quarter bug e for the "tattoo" has sounded
that the officer, grudgingly leaving the
mess table. ;umps on his back and makes
the small "g-e" rattle over the grounds to
the barracl "Tattoo" parade is at 9
p. m., and a quarter of an hour later till
lights are oi.t and the "tat" returns to his
stable to ran ain there till some hour after
midnight wl en it suits the sweet will of
his master t. make the nightly visit to the
guard anil sentries and to lie sure that
"all's well." -New York Tribune.
A P hit About Witnesses.
"It isn't always the greater number of
witnesses tin t wins in a lawsuit, even in a
question of veracity," remarked Henry
(.'lay Allen, -j remember a case I onoe bad
out in Kansas. My client had sent a large
quantity of butter to a dealer about $500
worth tind he latter, after keeping it
some time, tl e market meanwhile declin
ing, refused o pay for it. saying that he
had not bought it, but that it had been
sent to him n commission. He swore to
this, and four or live persons in his employ
BWOM to the same thing. There were two
hotels in tin county seat where the trial
came off. At one of these the judge and
lawyers and he defendant put up. The
jury was quartered at the other house.
My client, who was ti modest, gentlemanly
sort of perso i, was advised to put up at
the hit ter boa -e.
"The jury s IW him there before the case
came up for t! ial. He did not say anything
about his business. Nobody knew him.
It was mere:.- remarked that he was a
pleasant, agreeable gentleman. They all
knew the def. ndant. He had made "him
self oonspieni us, a blustering, loud, self
sufficient person. When the trial came on
the jury was surprised to discover this
quiet gentleman had a suit in court. I
had no hope of gaining it. Hut when he
testified it was impressed upon every one
that he told the truth, and they found for
him in spite "f the half dozen witnesses on
the other Bide." Indianapolis Journal.
A Ch inieleoii's Tongue.
The tongue f the chameleon is wonder
fully extensilt and extensible. By the
former word I mean the distance it can be
thrown out of the mouth; by the latter
word its own e ODgation is inferred, for I
am sure there is not space sufficient in the
lower part of the mouth to accommodate
the 8-inch ton rue which can be thrown
out unless it is greatly contracted again.
We know thu; it lies "folded" in the
mouth, but it f lds into a very small itin,
and when I here held a chameleon's mouth
wide open to tr.- and get a sight of this re
markable men ter it lies so compactly in
the loose lower lip that to see it is next to
impossible. Ci r. Forest and Stream.
A college gr tduate, hard up in Louis
ville, was comp died to accept a position as
driver on a st -eet railway. His natural
politeness did not desert him. Whenever
a lady on the street lifted a hand to sum
mon him to halt for her, he gracefully
lifted his hat. 3ne day, a lady waiting on
a corner, and d -siring to ride, chanced to
have her handkerchief in her hand, and
waved it at him. He not only lifted his
hat, but dropped the reins a moment unt;l
with his dis ng iged hand he threw a kiss
to her. He imagined she was flirting with
him, Yankee E lade.
