Tho few houses visible from tho sea poop out very plcturos'piely through tho great mass of dark foliago that clothos tho further slopo of tho promontory behind which lies tho town, laid out at right angles in tho stylo of BU Petersburg-and Now York. Tho dark green headland boldly outlined ; against tho warm dreamy blue of tho j irujictti sny, uiu rung, uurruw niruui ui t' bright orange traced by tho sandy beach, I. tlia nnrltnda Tin rt 4tArttnf linlttml tt rtnl IHU UUl4)lwgi IlliU VFi. WVUIU'4 U.UIUU (,1s IIUII the smooth sunlit sea all around, mako up a charming tableau, which is very effectively completed by tho Jagged crescent of black-pointed rocks that start up out of tho shining waters at tho extremity of Capo Jlesuratlo, against which tho surf breaks jncessantly in spouts of glittering foam. It is trim that at best tho metropolis of tho "black Republicans" of Libora is but tho toy capital of n toy government, but Its 1!),000 citizens havo evidently as good an opinion Of it and thomsolvcs as tho consequential frog In iEsop's fable, judging from their condescending message to Germany in 1870, that "tho Mbcrian government would preserve a strict neutrality during tho pending conflict between Germany and Franco. " Elephant at Work, IW. T. Hornaday.1 In turning squaro timber a tusker puts bis tusks under tho edge, lifts upward and forward at an ongio of and easily throws it over; but the female or muckna, having no tusks, has to kneel, placo tho baso of tho trunk, not tho forehead, against tho sldo of tho log. and by a downward and forward pressure against the upper edgo of the log push It over. Iu either caso tho work is done in less than a rninula if thero be no special dilllculty to overcome In the Bungam timber depot all tbo work of piling and arranging the logs in regular order at equal distances apart, with tho right sldo uppermost, was performed by elephants under tho direction of their mahouts. A word of command, a silent touch of the hand or kneo was enough, Thero was no loud bawling or angry swearing at tho laborers, such as would havo been absolutely nocessary had thoy been llarbadoes or Demerara negroes, nor was thero any Insulting back talk or insubordination, such as tboso abomlablo scallawags aro wont to Indulge in. In fact, tho clophants worked llko Intelligent human beings of tho. better sort A Piece of Vandalism ICInclnnatl Times-Star. "Ono of tho greatest pieces of vandalism which Cincinnati over countenanced, " remarked Mr. Henry 0. Urncr on 'change recently, "was .tho destruction of tho Indian mound on Fifth streot It stood very nearly opposite what is now Hughes high school,- and was covered by beautiful forest trees. Had tho ground around been made a park it would to-day have a national reputation. And that is what should havo been done. Think of that mound going back to prehistoric times and standing as a monument to tho people who onco inhabited this great country, and yet who aro now utterly forgotten! But it was leveled to the ground almost without a protest That was a piece of vandalism without a parallel. "I can remember very well that during tho Tippccanoo campaign Gen, Harrison was a frequent visitor at our house. Ono Sunday afternoon my father, Gon. Harrison and mytiolf went walking, and we climbed to the top of tho mound. I recollect that tho general took mo by tho hand and pointed out tho places whero they posted the sentries during tho Indian " wars. A "(jllmpso of the Seine." IJ'irk Itte. "Wo were stretched out on the bluff this morning, horo on tho Cote do Grace, gazing with quiet contentment upon Havre, tho ocean, and the beautiful bay of St Bauvcur, when wu made the acquaintance of a young English artist Speaking of our recent tour, ho remarked: "I hate that portion of Normandy; tho vista you havo in tho curve of the road leading from St "VVaudrillo to Cauflbec. " Wo looked at him in surprlso. "The reason Is, I spent a day there making a skotch in oil. Tho view was lovely, and I outdid myself in catching a greenish gllmpso of the Beine " " Why, it can't bo seen from that point, " said Tudor. "It was visible to mo. I saw it distinctly; and I painted it Tho purchaser couldn't rest until he saw tho exquisite viow of tho Seine, so I agreed to run over with him and point it out I've never gono near tho spot since. " "Why, what was the matter?" Matter! Why, when wo got there my green gllmpso of tho Selno turned out to bet the slate-roof of a railroad shed I" "flakes" at St. John's. (Frank Leslie's Illustrated.! ' The cod from the inshore fisheries aro brought in, cleaned, tongues, livers and sounds saved, and then salted. After remaining a certain length of tlmo in salt, they are washed, carried to the "flake" and spread out to dry. Tho"llako" consists of a horizontal framework of small poles covered with spruco boughs, and supported by uprights, the air having free access underneath. Here tho cod are spread to dry in the sun, and during this process require constant attention. In damp and rainy weather they aro piled in heaps, with the skin outward. When bleached white, thoy are ready for storing. Tho dried fish Intondcd for distant transportation aro packed by scrow power In drums. The shores of tho entrance to St John's, and all along Conception bay, aro covered by theso "Hakes, " which at a distance remind oxio of the of Italy. Men Who Own Horsos. INew York Eitn.! "There's no mistaking the owner of a fast horso, or a road horse of any kind, no matter whero you may meet him In New York, " said tho proprietor of a big livery stable up town. "Iu tho country nearly every man of reasonable means can afford to keep at least one horse, but in New York it is rather an expansive lux ury. To bo tho owner of a roadster argues that you "io a man of -means, and as eyery one wants to appear wealthy, 1 suppose that is the reason one hears so much horse talk. They talk about yachts-.men being unable to talk of anything bul their own particular form of sport, but that's nonsense compared to the enthusiasm of a horseman. Yachts are out of commission six mouths in a year, but a horse is always ready, " T e "Hlng" ' heory. It Is an exploded theory that ono ring grows upon every year. Tho agricultural department at Washington finds that trees of six years showed twelve rings; of twelve, twenty-one; of flie, eleven; and of twenty; the trees being, respectively, locust, hickory, crabapple and oak.
