A man who had tapped the current of an electric com pany to run his own motors was ac quitted on the ground that only a material movable object can be stolen, and the judgment has just been affirmed on appeal. A returned colonist says that the trouble with the Topolobampo (Mexico) scheme of co-peration was that it lacked government. "Everybody was a shareholder and everybody felt him self a boss." The result was a Donny. brook fair, to suppress which there was no one clothed with enough au thority. In future co-operative col onies, if there are any, will have to be carried on with ship's diseipliner men tions the San Francisco Chronicle. Otherwise the individualism to which human nature is prone will be sure to get the better of them. E. L. Godkin believes that the hu man race is improving, and in an article in the Atlantic Monthly he ives these reasons for his belief: "I do not rely on any particular legal plan or any political system, but on my faith in human nature, and on my knowledge of the human race since the dawn of civilization. When I com pare the modern with the ancient world, I am assured as to the future of man. I am far from denying that legislation and political changes have been the direct means of great good, but every good change in legislation or in Government has been preceded or brought about by an increase of intelligence, of reasonableness, or of brotherly kindness on the part of the people at largo. The new regime has got into the air before it got into the Jaws. Why do we not now burn heretics? Why do we not burn witches? Why do we not hang a man for stealing a sheep? Why do we not teach people to be content with their condition, however lowly? Why do we'condomn ignoranco as a curso? Nearly every step in what we call the growth of civilization has been there aenlt of the springing up in brairs of individuals of new views of the nature and ends of human society." . --~ ..~~~ A Princeton professor, Mr. Einton, relates Harper's Weekly, hl.s invented and patented agun thatpitchesabas3 ball which curves in its flight accord ing to the intentions of the marks man. Mr. Hinton is an Englishman, a graduate of Oxford, who came to Princeton from Yokohama, where he had a boys' school. He was a constant cricketer in England, and long before he came to this country had developed an interest in the American practice of pitohing baseballs in curves. When he got to Princeton he learned how to do it himself. Then he determined that the Princeton batsmen needed much more practice than the pitchers they had could give them, for pitchmg carved balls is very hard work and uses men up. So he so': to work to make a machine that would pitch, and after a great deal of study and experi ment he seems to have succeeded. His machine is a gun, the power is pow der, and it is said to work well, so that it promises to be as useful to the Princeton nine as the tackling machine which is kept in the Princeaton gym nasium has been to the eleven. Thus again has intellect despatch'ned a Frank. enstein to compete with human thews and perhaps cheapen labor. To have invented a pitcher is great, though the human clement in pitchers is in teresting, and it is likely to be some 'time before the machine wholly super sedes the man. The spl;ot where the buman element might be eliminated to advantage is ui the umpire's place. If, while his mind is still on sport, Mr. Hinton can invent an umpire who shall prove auonrato and reliable, and be adaptable to baseball, football and prize fights, he will not only do a great service to the cause of sport, but make his own fortune in the process. All that is wanted of an umpiro is ao cIracy and prompt action. One with . dial face and "works" in him, in apable of prejudice or error, would b ideal. FWHILE SNOWS ARE FALLING;, The spring time came-the spring time went, With shimmering cloud and shiny weather; In golden glory June was spent; On hills and fields we roamed together. We walked through autumn's purple haze, The future's dream of bliss forestalling, And, shuddering, thought of winter-day?, With snows a.falling. For earth was all so wondrous fair, And heaven smiled down so blue above it, Each wandering breath of balmy air But made us learn anew to love it! What wonder if, with all so bright, And wild birds through the woodland call ing, We sigh to think of winter's night, And snows a-falling. But when at last the world ,vas dressse In shining robes of Ice-mail gleaming, And calm white sileneo lulled to rest The pale dead flowers beneath it dream ing Behold! we woke to find made true The hope our hearts had been forestaliing-, While snows were falling. Ab, well! the days of youth ily fast; Their sans grow, dim, their blossoms wither, And all the dreams that made our p:st Fly fast and far, we know not whither; But, when we tread life's wintry slope, We hear again their voices calling, And memory clasps the hand of hope, While snows are falling, SELIM'S ELEPHANT, HINGS were taking - a turn with me. I Shad longed for a change, but not oven my wildest 1 imaginings would I have made me dream that I would be transferred 1 from an inland town of Pennsylvania to an inland district of the island of Ceylon. Yet that is what happened; for business changes came to my I brother-in-law, with whom I had been working, and he was called to that far away country to look after a piece of property, and at his invitation I went with him, for I would be needed in making the surveys. And when we were real!y thera and I could look around, I thought that I r would never become accustomed to 1 my strange surrourndings. Everything f else might have become familiar to t me in time, but to see farm work be. t ing done with elephants instead of c horses-that would be a surprise to a me as long as I lived, I thought. Ahmed was the name of the tame I elephant which was being led past the a back door on the evening of my com. a ing, and which paused there a mo- n ment and held out his trunk inquisi- a tively as he saw me. 1 "Selim must go up to the mountain E to bring some wood," said Mr. Frank- l lin, the manager of the farm, when he a was trying to appoint a day for us to begin the surveying. "That will take d all day tomorrow, and possibly a good a part of the next day." "How do you get the wool down the mountain?" I asked, for I had seen e no other animal about the place ex-. cept the elephant. p "Ahmod carries it," "ho replied. f, "We could not work the farm without g Ahmc(." h And so the next day I saw the great, p clumsy animal, which I had always as- h sociatod with plains and jungles- r never with rocky steeps Cr rugged b slopes-- climbing the mountain on his a way to the fore:t which furnished the hfarm with its supply of wood. He a: clhmbed readily and carefully, plant.- t ing his huge feet firmly before trust- e ing his weight on them, and I was j . stonished to note how much sagacity ft he showed in hin choice of paths. fi Selim walked beside him, with his ax I on his shoulder and the iron prod in II his hand, and when he came down at from his first journeyI thoughthehad been using the weapon a little too h freely. The poor animal was breath- a ing heavily, and one or two streams of b blood trickled down from his ears. a "Do you have to punish him so it severely as that?" I asked, as I petted fs Ahmed a little and fed him a few w morsels from the table. The man was itill irritable, and he answered me O shortly. a "I would like to kill him. He vexes al the soul from me. You must not feed an him--you will spoil him." tc The man was a native, and though ki be had lived among Europeans all his at life there was still a vindictive energy al in him I did not like. But I refrained From petting Ahmed,though the crest- 54 sre never came near me without ask- or ing for notice hi Naturally I was much interested in re Thmed; partly, I suppose, becausneo he a was the first tame elephant with whom w i had evecr become intimately sacquaint- hi 3d, and partly because I thought he was cruelly treated. th I spoke to Mr. Franklin about it of tfter the first few days, but he merely of aughed. on "That's a thing you have to leave to ra he keepers," he said. "As long as I he fellow doesn't kill the elephant az Fou have to let him go. None of us si ould manage Ahmed, you know, and th he fellow has us pretty well at his neroy so far as the treatment of the cc dlephmant is concerned. It's all right, w suppose: -Elephants are tough, and a t would be hard to hiurt them much," as And with this easy philosophy Mr. ys 'ranklin coutented himself. He would be lot go within reach ol Ahmed, for he he vas really afraid of him, and he kept ki lautioning me. "You can't trust elephants," he said ti 'Several that I know of have gone nad, one would think, and have killed tl; )eople, after having been so tame that hey have been the children's play- sh bings. You had better leave Ahmed at o 8elim and take core of yourself." g And I honestly tried to take his ad- ta ice, and for a number of days I did othing more than feed him a little S( hen his keeper's back was turned. so Ld it was this little kindness that hi brought about a strange condition c ºt things, which all at,once gave me new occupation not down on the pry gramme when I went to the island. The surveys I had been makin necessitated the building of a bridgi and I ran the lines and took the love after which I asked if there were an bridge builders in the country. "Ahmed builds the bridges," eai Mr. Franklin with a smile. "That :, one part of his work you have newv seen, have you? Selim understand the work thoroughly, and it is reall wonderful to see the elephant carr 1. out his keeper's orders. The men wi cut the timbers to-morrow, and the you will oversee the work and see the the proper level is kept." In accordance with these instruc tions I watched the cutting of th timbers-logs eighteen feet long an twelve inches thick-and the next da - Selim and I were there with Ahme ready to begin work. Selim was in an ugly humor to begi ;, with, and he had been threatening th elephant from the time wo left th house, so that the great creature we s becoming nervous and restless befor the work had begun. More than once too, Solim had used his steel-she weapon, which carried a hook as we] as a sharp prod, and the animal hn groaned like a human boeng under th punishment. I could not hold m; peace. "It does seem to me, Selim," I said "that Ahmed would do his work bet ter if you would not be so severe wit] him." "One has to be severe with thes I beasts," he returned, and withou a deigning any further reply he set the t hugo creature at work lifting the t heavy timbers and carrying them ti I their place at the stream. . The terrible strength of the ele I phant frightened me as I watched hin i coiling his trunk about the logs, lift r ing them and holding them steady with mouth and trunk v.hile he walkei 7 away to the spot where the logs were c redcd. ' Once there, he waited for in t structions before he lowered the 3 weight, and as soon as the position [ was indicated he carefully and slow1l dropped the timber into the exact place demanded. If it swung around a little that it was out of larco he rolled it with trunk and head until it lay whore he wanted it and was per fectly firm. It seemed incredible that this was not the work of reason, and that it was merely the result of thor ough training; but even if this were all, what intelligence it showed. As time went on the keeper's irrita. bility increased, and his voice rose and became angrier. He swore at the animal and used his hook until Ah med's ear was bleeding; and the huge animal absolutely stood and trembled, like a frightened child. This made Selim furious, and he began to assault him in the most cruel manner with the steel prod. The sight]was more than I could en dure. I sprung down the bank and snatched the weapon from his hands. "What do you mean ?" I cried, hotly. "You shall not treat the creature so cruelly." I had taken him utterly by sur prise, and he only stared at me stupidly for a moment; but all at once his face grew white with fury, and he threw himself upon me and wrenched the prod away. I was but a strippling and he was a man of unusual strength. Hie raised the weapon over his head with both hands and advanced upon me with murder in his eyes. I was unarmed, and if' I had boon armed it would have profited me lit tie. Many things lashed before my eyes in the brief mo'ments when I slowly retreated, with that colorless face before me. We were a long way from the house, no help was near, and I was about to be murdered by a vil lainous servant, whoma no one would nsuspect of the deed. I had stepped backward, feeling be hind me for a tree which I might use as a shelter and so gain a little time; but all at once I struck my foot against a stone and wont down. In an instant Selimn was over me, his cruel face bent down and the steel-pointed weapon held against my throat, We had both forgotten the elephant. One sees a great deal at such a time, and while I lay there with the weapon at my throat and death but a moment. away I saw the hugo bulk rushing toward us, Ah, then Ahmed would kill me instead of Selim, I thought, and I felt a grim joy at the man's dis appointment; and then Then I saw something twine around Solim a body and heard him give a cry of agony and fear as Ahmed swung him aloft. Round and round he went, revolving in the air as though he were a feather blown about in an eddy of wind. Ahmed was preparing to dash him to death on the rooks. I was on my feet as soon as I could think and in the midst of mortal fear of the huge animal I still had presence of mind enough to think that I might calm him. I spoke to him, and the rapid whirling of the body slackened. I laid my hand on the side of his head and patted the quivering trunk, andit slowly uncoiled and dropped Selim to the ground. I did not dare to look after him, for I could not take my eyes off Ahmed. I was conscious that Solim lay there for a moment, and then began to crawl away, and that after he had gone a few yards he arose and flew without looking behind him. I was several miles from home, alone with an elephant, and I knew nothing about managing him and was not at all sure what were his inten tions about me I "Ahmed," I said, patting him gen tly. "Poor Ahmed I JIb oaressed me with his trunk, and showed every indication of affection, and in a few moments I began to re gain my confidence. I would try to take the elephant home, at any rate. I would not take the weapon which Selim had used, and which had come so near ending my days. I called to him. "Come along, Ahmed," and of started homeward, and without the .e a least hesitation Ahmed walked beside ro- me, as gentle and harmless in appear ance as a pet dog. ing What consternation there was when ge, I appeared at the house with the ele el, phant! Ahmed stood in the yard my beside me while I told my story, and caressed me with his trunk and even aid rifled my pockets of the pieces of is cake 1 had taken for him that morning ver and had forgotten. ads "Well, what are we going to do lly now?" said Mr. Franklin dubiously. ry ".It is very hard to find a good keeper, till especially at this season of the year, ion and that bridge must be built at lgnt once." I volunteered to go to town and ne- find a keeper, and I was sure there the would be no trouble about it. But I nd soon found that elephant keepers were lay rare, and that the fame of Ahmed had ied gone forth, and none of them would undertake the care of an elephant that in had rebelled and come so near killing :he his last keeper. ,he "There's only one way to manage ras it," I raid that night when I went )re home. "I will take Ahmed down to cc, morrow and make him build the od bridge." ell There was a general shout of horror, ad and everybody had never heard of he such a thing, and I did not know what vy I was undertaking, and I would be sure to be killed. I waited till the id, storm had subsided, and then I told et- them that I would try it, anyway, and th if I did not succeed, why then some other plan must be devised. Mse It must be confessed that I looked at at Ahmed the nest morning with a he good deal of trepidation. He certainly he was very large. I had my pockets full to of biscuits which I meant to use as sops for Corberns all through the !e" morning, but he found them without im delay and ate them all at a mouthful, ft. and then we took our way down to the Iy bridge, several members of the family ed following at a distance, for they were ro very doubtful as to the result of the n. experiment. le Bnt we went down to the timbers n which were to go into the bridge, and Iy showed Ahmecd which cue I wanted et out, wondering if he would under id stand me. HIe did. Without the least eo delay he lifted the log, and then we it journeyed down to the stream, and I r. showed him where the log was to go. at We got on famously. and I heard a Id faint cheer from the bank, where the r- doubters were in hiding. Ahmed and re I were building the bridge as pleas antly as though we had done nothing a. all our lives but build bridzes. so Surely, it was a great change-an lo American boy, in nineteenth century 1. costume, turning elephant trainer and Is builder of bridges in the island of 1, Ceylon, but that is what had hau lo pened. I wondered if any of my old it friends could over believe this. And ie yet it had all come about in the most natural way, for I had merely shown a. the animal a little kindness, and so id had won his love. s A few days later, greatly to my joy, a man appeared whom Ahmed condo so cended to accept na his trainer, and I turned my pet over to him, noting with joy that he was likely to be treated kindly. Our work in Ceylon was finished. It had been rainy weather and the 0 roads were unfit for the horses, so it d was arranged that we should go to town on tbo elep.ant. Ahmed greeted me with eflusion when I went out to Smoun"t, and was evidently overjoyed to see me again, for I had carefully n kept out of his sight since the coming of his new keeper. And so we went away in true oriental style, mounted on Ahmed. At the town a carriago was awaiting ufs to take us to tub sea port. There was a moment's delay while Ssome packages were stored inside, and we were attending to there when eud denly something, reached past my brother and touched my face. It was Ahmed's trun. iTe ihal followed me. SMy brother started, the driver, who t busily arranging the bundles, dropped them with a shriek and fled for his I life, and I laughed and petted Ahmed a little for the last time.
