We have a largo soiled Asiatic ele

trunk from side to side. If you havo
missed an elephant answering this
description please como up and take
him away, as wo havo no uso for
him. An elephant on . a place so
small -'as ours Is more of a troublo
than a convenience. I havo endeav
ored to frighten him away, but ho
docs not seem at all timid, and my
wife and I, resisted by our hired man,
tried to push him out of tho yard,
but our efforts wero unavailing. Ho
has made our homo his own now for
somo days, and ho has becomo qulto

much in tho daytime, for ho then
basks mostly on tho lawn and plays
with tho. children (to whom ho has
greatly endeared hlmfcolf), but at
night ho comes up and lays his head
on our piazza, and his deep and ston
torious breathing keeps my wlfo
awako. I feel as though I was en
titled to some compensation for his
koop. Ho Is a largo though not
fastidious eater, find ho has destroyed
somo of my plants by treading on
thorn; nnd ho also leaned against
our woodhouso. My neighbor who
Is something of a wng says I hare,

of domestic life in this country which
many of tho newspaper artists set
forth day by day havo often a certain
lesson for the home circle; and if
tho art wero not so exaggeratedly Im
possible, tho sketches are often
clever. No doubt that is part of the

of features and the figure of a meal

One such set of pictures In tho
Pittsburg Sun Is American to tho
core. It presents a delighted "silly"
who twirls his hat madly on a stick,
explaining to a wondering male com

going to the country." The succeed
ing pictures show tho fellow strutting
boastfully about before his audience
of one, affirming tho naughty things
he will do during his roverslon to
bachelor life. The friend's admir
ing ejaculations are in steady cres
cendo. At the bottom of the series
aro two pictures that show

bids tho waiter bring him tho samo

p. -m., while sober-looking volumes, a
pile of puzzle pictures, a parrot and
a cat aro his lively ontertalnors. A
