An Elephant's Punishment« Though tlie white elephant, and all elephants in Indo-China, are held in ver y high honor, they do not a' w vs oc cupy a very creditable place in t e fa bles of the people. There is a long story in the Non-thukpakkaranam about un eh pliant, Yukunson, who went wild, and rushed about the forest in mad fashion. He came upon a clump of bamboos, tore it clown, and stamped to death the fledglings of a pair of hedge ►I»arrows, who had their nest there. The bereaved parents were in great tribulation, and fluttered about, bewail in g their wrongs. A crow who flew by was touched by their sorrow, and after giving them a deal of religious advice, such as grudging Westerns would be lieve him incapable of knowing about, lie promised to see that right should be done. The three of them, therefore, wemt off and struck up on alliance with the frog, and theu enlisted the fly on their side. This partnership did not seem very formidable, but the genius of the frog and the crow, both of whom in the story exhibit great wisdom and reasoning power, brought about a final triumph. Tlie crow flew over Yukunson, the ele phant, and pecked at his eyes. In the wounds the fly laid eggs. These bred maggots, and the elephant's eyes be« came terribly inflamed and he lost „ T ___________.his R "ht. He wandered about the forest in torture, and wherever he went the hedge-sparrows flew chattering about his head, abusing Trim and exulting in his agony. To his other misery was added that of burning thirst. The frog s ated himself on the edge of a deep ho , ss and croaked vigorously to make tne elephant think there was water tiiero. Yuknnson followed the sound, and, falling over the cliff, was dashed to pieces. Nevertheless, before he dies he moral« Yes on the wickedness into which even I e most pious are led, and acknowl the righteousness of the fate ^ nch has befallen him . His repent ance is real, and saves him from the transinoorporation which should lave been the portion of so bad an ac oj, but which would have been too givut a punishment in the popular idea or m, estimable a creature as the ele p mut —London Saturday Review.

Some men would have given up long ago in blank despair."— Mali Street News. Hot and Cold Drinks, A correspondent of Knowledge calls attention to some of the disadvantages of hot drinks. Cold drinks, he says, are natural to man, though most people nowadays are so used to hot drinks that they do not feel sa'isfaction—really stimulation—unless they have them Hot drinks are injurious to the tongue, for they deaden its sensation, and, after taking Lot soup or drink, the tongue becomes quite numb and unable to taste the finer flavors of a dish. The teeth are greatly injured by them, and many dentists say caries (decay) is due to them alone. They crack the enamel and thus allow caries to set in. When caries lias once set in hot drinks are a common cause for neuralgia. Hot drinks are especially hurtful to the stomach. They cause irritation of the nerves of the stomach and consequent mild in flammation of that organ, 1 so that after a hot drink the stomach is red and con gested ; in time a debilitated condition is set up. A temperature of 100 de grees Fahrenheit also destroys the active ferment of the gasiric juice— pepsin—and so leads to indigestion. If the stomach is at all disordered, hot drinks give rise to much griping pain, and in many cases to vomiting. In cases of diarrhea, too, hot drinks only in crease it, while cold ones tend to lessen :t. Thirst is not common in xvinter, unless sugary, salty, or hot-spiced foods have been taken. In cold weather the ir contains more moisture than in hot, and in cold weather there is less pers piration. Hot drinks increase the vol ume of heat in the body, and, if that is not required, it is quickly got rid of by ihe skin. Water is the best thirst quencher, but if simple food be taken she need of drinks will be small. Many vegotarians drink nothing from month to month, the only fluid they get being the juices of the fruits which they eat. But pleasant drinks, like tea, coffee, etc., may be taken lukewarm for a long time with little apparent damage. The least injurious is cocoa, wtn/lA with plenty of milk and allowed to stand until nearly oooL A good test is to apply the little finger to the drink, and, if it be not too hot, then it may be safely taken .—Halts JoUmaX of UeaUK Pbopli who are not superstitious be lieve in signs» and so the figa-paintar gets his work in. /O'' & É £•: ' I 111 WE REFEE TO ALMOST .
