The tuberculosia cotnmittec of the New York board of health reccntly held a "publio alaugbtor" of condemn ed animal8 near Syracuae that farmera and othera intcreatcd might be given nn opportunity to learu something of luberculoaia.

Several farmera woro hcard to re mark that tho whole alfair waa a fakc nnd n schcme to "do" the fartuera. Whon the8o men were abown the dia eased portionB of tho animal they cbangcd their minda and bccame aatie fied that thero is such a dieeaae. The only satisfnctory thiug about the test waa tbe fact that all tho animals Blaughtered woro such advanccd cases aa n competent vetcriuarian would havo condemned on pbyaical examiua tion.

"Thcrc," taid Liiia and liob, in conccrt, "what do you tlnnk of that? ' ' "Isn't it fine?" addcd Lida. "Imi'I it tough?" taid liol). "Itob," eaid his motLcr, with a rcprovlng gcsturc, "how oftcn have 1 told you not to ,apply the word 'tough' in that blangy inan ner. I'm turc it doceii't fit tliisitmtntioniu tho lcist, for with thc exccption of tlic x'b, whosc promincncc ccrtainly docs bpoil tlic looks of thc card a little, it is very mcc, in dccd. Iiut I don't undcrstand it. 'A party of horrorp,' it says. What in thc world isa 'party of horrors? I nevcr hcard of onc." "C'allie has her datcs mixcd," laughcd Bob. "Shc incaiit to iuvite you to Ul;e a peep at thc chaniber of horroia." "Shc mcant nothing of thc kind," retorted Lida, stiflly. "Don't you ay any attcntion to hiin, in.uimia. llc's mad liccautc lic is a boy and can't bc invitcd, that's all. Callie knew pcrfectly wcll what the was doiug.

Whcn vc comc to thc 'party of horrors wo aic to bring an uxaiuple of our speeial detcstation and tcll why hato it and trj' to (ind out tome way to make it casy." "Wish 1 was going," said ltob. "It wouldn't take inc long to make up my mind what I'd take." , "Oh, wo all know," laughed Lida. "Kind lings. Kverybody knows you hate them and iwould rather take a wliipiiing thaato make them." "Oh, uo, Lide, you'rc niistakcn thcrc," correttcd Hob. "Kiiullings arc not nii c, but tliey're bettcr than a wlupping. 'J'hat's why I make 'cm." "Callie's party is certainly a novclty," said Mrs. Sliuw, refcrring to thc invitation again. "What are you going to take as your particular gricvance?" "A dishpan full of dirty dishes and a dish 'rag," said Lida, promptly. "I don't thinlc therc's anything on carth quito bo mcan ai washing dishes." "You say that only bccause you've ncver split ldndling," put in liob. "It is only by comparison that we know whether anything is good or bad." "You may compare dishVshing with any thing you plcase," said Lida, dubiously, "and jl'm quito sure it will come out of thc contest the most disagrceable thing in the lot in my opinion. Everybody docsn't think eo, though. Daisy Mex is going to take a torn apron to patch, Bclle Iloman a block of her album quilt, Angic Robinson a pan of poto 'tocs to peol, Sylvio Rush a broom, Annlo Dolan a gardcn hoc, Jcsaie Little an armload of stovewood, and Ilattie Kain a flatiron. A good many of thc girla arc going to taka thcir arithmctics and grammars, and some xl them are going to take their musio lcs sons." "O-o-oh, whatacon-glom-cration," groaned Bob. "I've never wanted to be a girl, but 1 'would like to have on skirts that day so I could gct in and scc how you all look. Youll be a regular circus." Kobert Shaw was much givcn to exag gcration, but he was right in prcdictinc that Mrs. Wells' diuing-room and kitchen would be the sccne of a unique assembly on Satur day aftcrnoon. Tlicre were some 30 girla prewnt. Lida was there early with hcrlaige pan full of dirty platcs, cups and haucers, milJ: pitcher and knives and forks. Mra. Wells had evidently expccted a good many of the girla to come armed with this particu lar avcrsion, nnd she had prcpared two long lablcs for the accomniodation of thc dishpan brigade. Plcnty of hot water and nice feoft 'towels were providcd them, and thcy eet to work on the dreadcd task in tho inidst of a genernl clamor. There werc low cliairs near the windows for those who dislikcd sewing. Thc piano and an old organ were at the dis posal of the girls who had a grudge against music. Just bcyond the garden fence were a numbcr of flower and vcgctable beds, wherc all who despised gardcning could hoe and wced to their hearts' content. Notwithstanding tie disagrceable charac ter of ihese miscelJaneous tasks tho little bce hive rang with the lauglis and jests of the workcrs. The hilarity rcached a climax when, the horrors having all been performed, the girla were invitcd to sit down to the dainty luncheon prcpared for them. Mrs. Wells prcpared all the little dain ties that she knew by experience girls were fond of, and in every way tried to make thc disagrecable tasks which the little gticsts had given thcmselvcs as pleasantaspoesible. In this way she added much to the cnjoy ment of the novel party. "This little party," explaincd Mrs. Wells, whcn all were seated and grace had been said, "was gotten up not bo much that you might rclieve yoursclves by airing your gricvances, but that wc might deviBo some plan of lightening your burdens. At each girl's platc there is an cnvelope containing 'a writtcn reeipo which I hopo will curo the distasteful features of thc work she most dis likes. Thcse reci'iics have becn placed since you came, and each, I think, applies to the individual cose in qucstion. I prefer that you do not opcn them until you get home." "Miat's yours, Lide? Look quick and bee," said Hob, whcn Lida, still holding the pan of clean, ehining dishes in herlap, bcgan to re'ato Bomo of the amusing inciilcnts of the party of horrors. Lida opened the cnvelope and read: "To mako dishwashjng easy, softcn the water with the Boap of patience, rub with the cloth of good terapcr, and dry with tho towel of chcerfulnesa. If you havo no one to talk to pleasantly while you work kecp your mind on chccrful things, and your labor will 'be lightcncd until it will ceaso to be a labor and become a pleasure." "numpb," said Bob, "that's good. I won der what she'd givo mo?" "Oh, I know," said Lida, quickly. "Sca Bon your wood in the warra air of affection for mother, Bliarpcn your nx on the grind stone of pcrsevcrance, and your kindlings will eplit like Dresden china." "Well," said Hob, "that party of horrors haa been a jucces, nfter all, if it can make you talk like that." Emma M. Wisc, ir ChJcago Dally Hecord.

"Seorcs of people ask me every day," said Kccpcr Snydcr, of tho elcphant house ln Ccntrnl park, New York, reccntty, "how anything bo stupld- looking and thick-Bkinncd as an cnn be taught anything. them all that clerphants unllke chlldren. Some are elcphant I tcll are not too dull to lcarn nnythlng, and oth ers catoh an idrxv quickly. Toin," ho went on, polnting to tlio largc elcphant who wns buslly cngnged ln throwlng hay on hia back, "nlthough Irasciblc in disposltlon, is qulte intelllgcnt. The flrst trick I taught hlm was to lio down. Thia was not so easy to no complish as lt might aecm, for H took a block and fall at front and rear, with a gang of 15 or 20 men at each cnd. I Btood at onc sldc, nnd oh I snid 'Uet down' his fect were drawu out from undcr hlm. This had to be repcatcd only a fow times beforc ho learncd what 'Get down' meant for him. "To tcach hlm to btand on his hind fect and on his hcad a block and fall on a bcam over his head, a snatch block and two 'dead men' ln the floor and tho servlccs of anothcr clephant were all rcqulrcd. Aa I Bold 'Get up' the ele phant in harness walkcd forward, and Tom's front feet went up, while his hind fect were ehalned together. When I said 'Stand on your hcad' his front feet, which had been previously chained, rcmalned on tho floor, while his hind feet were drawn up until they almost lltenilly 'klcked tho beam.' "Thcse were his flrst lcssons. Whcn he learncd to drlll to 'rlght-about-face' and 'left-about-foce,' I stood on ono sldc of hlm nnd nnother mnn on the other, and we each had a prod. As I coinmandcd 'right-nbout-face,' he waa puahcd over to the right, and 'left abouWace' he was prodded in that dl rection. I taught hlm to waltz ln much thc Banic way, only aa we pushed him back and forth we made hlm go clear around, and now he is one of the best waltzers, in tho country. Ile lcarned to rlng the bell and fan hlmself ln one lesson. Both rcqulre the Bame motJon, nnd they nre rcally the samo triek, although people never think of that. Yes, hu knows which 1b which and never plcks up tho fan or napkln when I tell hlm to ring the bell. I only had to put each, ono at a time, in his trunk, and with thc fan and bell I shook lt, aud with the napldn wlpcd flrst one side of his mouth and then the other. He took to hand-organ grindlng like a Mulberry Btreet Italian. It is ono of his fnvoritc tricks. "The elcphant is the only animnl whose legs all bnd the Enmo way. His kind lags bend In, and tho positlon rc qulrcd for oreeplng Is not very coin fortable, but he does it aa well as a baby. III s performoncen on the har- , monlca are the most surprlsing to on , lookers, but the fact is that all the in- .telllgence required for that ls holding tnc lnstrument. as ne must oreatne through hia trunk, every breath moves it back nnd forth. I dlscovercd that ho holds his breath when he stnnda on his hind legs, by trylng to get him to do that and play the hormonlca at the B.ime time; but his front feet are no fcooncr up than the sound ceasea until they are down ngsUn. "IIls tub is about 2ya feet high, nnd it took me nbout nn hour to tret him to I mount it the flrst time, and as long i to gct him down from lt once he was I up. I hnd flually to improvisc a step from it beforo he would comc down. He went right up again, however, and came down, and repeated tkemovement ! Eevcral tlmes iu the flrst lcsson. Now he mounta it and stands on his hind feet, his front feet, his side feet and waltzcs nnd changea on It. "People nll Ecem to think that an el- I cphant liaa no sense of feellng becauso lils Bkin ls thick and coarse. The fact is tlint his skin is ns sensltlve ns a baby's nnd if you tlckle him with a strnw you will flnd itout. The fliesand mo&qultoes are great dlsturbers of his ptacc and he ls to&blng hay on IiIb back now to dislodge them. "Tom hnd his annual bath and oll Ing a few dnys ngo, nnd the latter op eratlon prevents his skin from gct ting too dry. In his native Btate he treats hlmself to mud baths and keeps hlmself iu coudllion. "The feet of the elephant have to be . repalred frcquently, for they are as j Eusceptlble to corns and Btono brulses , as the feet of people, and they have to qe cut and trimmed. You wouldn t think it, would you, that twiee nround Tom's front foot, when he is stnndlng with his full weight upon it, Is equal to his height? lt la true, and it ia a rule that beldom varies an inch in any elcphant, "The Afrlcan elcphants have only four toes and their cars are very large. Thc Aslatic elphants have ilve toes and their cars nre smaller, There nre few Afrlcan elephnnts In this country, not more than threc or four. Not long ago, at an cxhibition in New York, there was a skin of leathcr with Btnall cars and comparntivcly fine texture (the hlde from all elephants haa too large pores to make It of usc), and lt was labeled 'llide from un Afrlcan elcphant.'
