There waa once a Ttttle baby boy
born lu I'erala, who wa called Cyru.
HI grandfather, who wa n king,
thought that when the boy grew up he
would want to be a king hlmaelf. o
be hud the poor little bnby carried out
into the foreat and left there to be eat

hearted woman waa looking after her
beep that day and he found the little
baby, which aha took home with her.

KtihjeciN. One day, when he wa play
Iiik king, he led the other boyn out on
what wc nhould call an apHte-ateallng
expedition; only, Inatead of applea.they
were pomegranate. They went Into
the ground belonging lo a poor man,
picked a great many pomegranate and
ran away before the owner could catch

A 5-yeer old kindergarten pupil waa

The "killer." Oren gladiator. Is a
vorarlmia whale, with powerful Jaw
armed with large, aharp tooth. It la
the wolf of the ocean, nnd two or
three killer will attack n iperm whale,
and mutilate and kilt the huge alli
um I. Mr. lli'Ilnn, In hla nurmtlvo of a
whaling vayngo, "Tho Crulio of the
Cachalot," describes n light footworn n
sperm whole and threo killers which
he mw off tho Island of Formosa.
A largo bowhond roeo nonr tho ship,
who seemed IndlfTeront to hi proxim
ity. Three killers worv attacking him.
One leaped high In the nlr and de
scended uM)u the whale's broad hack
with n cmh. Agnln nud npiiln the
killer leaped nnd fell, n If lo heat tho
whale Into iiibmlMlou by n suoceaslnn
i f heavy blows.
Tho sea around boiled like a, caldron.
The worried whale lifted lu huge head
out of the foaming water. On cither
lde n killer hung to hla lips, evident
ly trying to drag tils mouth open. At
last the InresMnt, heavy blows of the
leaping kilter oxhausted the great
whale, nnd thre three killers, joining
forces, dragged open his cavernous
mouth, Into which they entered ami
devoured his tongue. As soon ns they
had finished tliolr feast tboy swam
away, loavlng the whale, helpless and
dying, n prey to tho whalemen.
On another occasion Mr. llullen Haw
a combat between n bull sperm whale
nnd two klllors. aided by n huge sword
fish. The two killers hung on the
whale's llonks. trying to divert his nt
tonttnn from the awordllsh's attack.
This terrlblo foe. elxtoon feet long,
launched hlmsoir, like n torpedo, nt the
most vulnerable part of the whale,
whore the hoart Is enclatod by the
neck. The whale, Indifferent to the
killers, kept his oyos on tho long fish
and received tho shock on his bead,
solid as it block of thirty tons of In
Tbe blow glanced, and the awordftsh
rolled over the top of tho black head
The whale turned rapidly over, settled
In tbe water, caught tbe swordfl.h In
IU jaws, crunched hlw. and swallowed
the two halves. Then reversing his
bulk, he brandished his tall aloft,
brought It down on one of the killers,
and ho became tbe "killed." The sur
vivor lied, pursued by an nvnlaitehe of
