Deaths of Wild Animals.
The circumstances that attend the ill
ness and death of wild animals are perhaps
less well known than any other part cf
their history. Yet when we consider that
animal life, though in some species of
great duration, is naturally brief and liable
to an infinite number of accidents without
remedy and sudden dangers unforeseen,
the subject of the last days of the nobler
sorts of beasts has a certain pathetic inter
est. No doubt all animals, from the
healthy and natural lives they" lead, have
strange powers of self cure in cose of acci
dent. Those whose profession it is to pre
pare the skeletons of wild beasts, large and
small, for museums and laboratories speak
with surprise of the number of injuries
and fractures which the bones exhibit, bnt
which hare set themselves in a rough but
But the "chapter of accidents" In animal
life spares none, from the stags which die
with horns locked together on the moun
tain Bide to the locusts which impale
themselves upon the barbed wire of the
Transvaal farms, or the cicales which rend
their wings upon the thorns of the mimosa.
Death by violence seems to be the rule in
the lower forms of Animal life, except in
the case of sudden plagues or changes of
season. Only to the largest quadrupeds
has human fancy conceded the boon of a
natural and perhaps painless death, and
the remote, untrodden jungle, where the
elephants go to die, lies still among the

A hot contest was about to take place
years ago in a country town, the candi
dates being a Legitimist, an Orleanist and
a Republican. One Saturday morning peo
ple mri up to the wife of the Orleanist poli
tician with the exclamation that "All was
lost!" as the Legitimist rival was going to
present every poor member of the congre
gation with a 4-pound loaf after divine
service on the following day. The lady re
flected a moment, and then said that she
would be equal to the occasion. She kept
her word. As the people filed out of the
church on a Sunday morning the Legiti
mist candidate distributed his bread, but
posted on the other side of the door the
Orleanist's wife presented to the recipients
of the 4-pound loaves a pat of butter or a
pot of jam. As it turned out the wily Re
publican carried the day after all. He
happened to bo a dealer in wines, and send
ing around a bottle to every poor elector

antly headed the poll. Paris Cor. London
