Cutr.-i injj aa Poignant as Those of Human Beings Grief Over tbe Death of lb ir Whelp Touchiagly Shown by a Lion and Lioness. Edgar Quinet In his journal tells how one day be went with the naturalist, Geoff roi lie St. Hiliare, to the Jardin des flames: "In ue of the cages were a lion and a iiouess together. They were standing up, quite motionless, and seemed not even to see us. Presently the lion, lifting up bis great paw, placed It slowly ami softly on the forehead of tbe lioness, and both continued in the same attitude as long as we remained before hem. What was intended by the- gesture? A painter who should have desired to represent calm grief and the deepest compassion could not have invented anything more striking. 'What does it mean? said I to Geoffroi. Their lion whelp died this morning.' replied be. Then I understood what I saw: Pity, good-will, sympathy all these sentiments might be read in those fierce countenances." Tbe following interesting account Is extracted from James Forbes' "Orien tal Memories:' "One of a shooting par ty, under a banyan tree, killed a female monkey, and carried it to his tent, which was soon surrounded by forty or fifty of the tribe, who made a great noise, and seemed disposed to attack their aggressor. They retreated when be presented his fowling-piece, tbe dreadful effect of which they had wit nessed, and appeared perfectly to un derstand. The head of the troop, how ever, stood his ground, chattering furi ously; the sportsman who, perhaps, felt some little degree of compunction for having killed one of the family, did not like to fire at the creatures, and noth ing short of firing would suffice to drive him off. At length he came to the door of the tent, and finding threats of no avail, began a lamentable moaning, and by the most expressive gestures seemed to beg for tbe dead body. It was given htm; he took it sorrowfully la his arms and bore it away to his expecting com panions. They who were witnesses of this scene resolved never again to fire at one of tbe monkey race." But perhaps tbe most impressive and extraordinary case that has yet come before us is that of poor Norman's dog in the Isle of Skye. Here it is, as told a year or two ago In the Inverness Courier, one of tbe most reliable papers In Scotland: "A circumstance has Just occurred at Portree, Isle of Skye, which may be added to the many chapters recording the fidelity and attachment of dogs to their masters. A rumor spread through the town one morning that on the pre vious night the dogs had torn open the grave of a young man who had died of fever, and was interred some weeks previously. It transpired, however, that the case was not so revolting. When the young man was burled his clog fol lowed the funeral to the church yard and was with difficulty removed. It re turned again and again to the spot, and, unobserved, had dug into the grave un til It leached the coffin. The dog had gnawed through the coffin when the fact was discovered, but tbe body of his dead master was untouched; and there the faithful animal was found, eagerly looking into the grave. T doubt,' says the correspondent, 'If there be on rec ord a more striking instance of canine attachment; for you must bear in mind that four or five weeks had elapsed since the Interment, and the church yard is six miles from the house where poor Norman's father lives.' " An Incident Is told of a pair of swans who had been Inseparable companions for three years, during which time they had reared three broods of cygnets; last autumn the male bird was killed, and since that time the female has sep arated herself from all society with her own species. Cassell's Magazine. REWARDS ARE ADEQUATE. The Public Is Both Just and Generous to Faithful Servants. The compensations of political life are not a matter of wages, profits and bookkeeping, says ex-Senator Ingalls. They are not measured by income or per centum. It must be admitted that there are vicissitudes and misfits, but salamities attend all enterprises. Those who fall outnumber those who succeed. One is taken and the other left. Pop ularity and public favor sometimes seem capricious and fickle. The idol of yesterday is execrated to-morrow. The constituency of Aristides still survives, and Nemesis yet waits to resent and punish prosperity. Princes are not uniformly grateful, and the demands upon the time and strength of the public servant are not always considerate. The lamentation of Wolsey has not lost its pathetic sig nificance, and the injunction to throw away ambition yet falls on wounded and weary souls. But the rewards of public life are far in excess of its bur dens. The people are not always slow to anger, but in tbe end they are both just and generous to those who serve them with fidelity. They honor courage, independent thought, manhood and truth, and are quick to forgive errors that proceed from an intrepid spirit. The ingrati tude of republics is a stale proverb. Saturday Evening Post. An Epicure of the Frontier. Jim Bridger, the famous Rocky Mountain scout, at one stage of bis career thought he had enough of fron tier life and decided to return to the "effete East" which to him meant Missouri. Not long after he had quit his ranch Captain Russell, the com mandant of the army post where Jim used to trade his furs and game for cartridges between scouting jobs, was surprised to see the old man ambling in again. "Why, Bridger! We thought you had settled down East with your home folks." "Cap'n," said Bridger, "I want to take to scouting again." "Why, what was the matter? Wouldn't they have you back on the old homestead?" "No, cap'n, Hit ain't it," said the old scout. "I'll tell you now It wuz. I went back to stay for keeps, sur "miff, but it wasn't the old Mizzourl I was reared up in. Why, they had a railroad junction no more'n fifteen miles from the ole ranch yes, sir. a railroad junction. And what's worse, i they've got reaches all over the range nowadays, et err four miie or so. tell you what, cap'n. the air ain't pure down there no more." "Is that possible? But, Bridger, didn't you like tbe good things to eat they have down there?" "Good things to eat: Why, cap'n, didn't have a briled grizzly paw the hull time I was there!" Collier s Weekly. Wit .5u.-k A recruit for the British army was taken to be sworn in recently by the magistrate. Everything was going swimmingly till the magistrate asked th mon -Hnv-o von ever been in (III UllUI, J. All prison ?" At this the man looked star tled, but, quickly recovering himself, he blurted out, "No, sir, I have never been in jail, but I don't mind doing a few days if you think it necessary. A singer named Gordon once com plained to Handel of the style of his accompaniments, which attracted the attention from tbe singer, saying that if be did not accompany him better he would jump upon the harpsichord and destroy it. "Very veil," said Handel, "tell me ven you vill do dat and I vill advertise it. More people will come to see you jump dan to hear you sing." It is said by those who know Cecil Rhodes, the South African magnate, that he has, -in common with Lord Kitchener, a strong aversion to the op posite sex. While on a visit to London before the commencement of tbe war be dined at the house of a very wealthy lady of title, and later, when he was discussing the affair with his secre tary, the latter asked: "And whom did you take to dinner?" "Oh, I don't know. Some Lady Somebody," was the reply. "But what did you call her?" "Didn't call her anything never spoke to her." When recently asked to write in a certain lady's album the Prince of Wales playfully declined, saying: "A little while ago I spent nearly an hour one evening writing .verses in several albums. I even made up a verse so badly put together that only a royal prince, or a duke at the best, could have hail the shame to write such stuff. Now, madam, what do you thin.; happened to my verses? WTell, they were all sold at a good stiff price a week later to pro vide funds to support the Society for the Restoration of the Stuarts. Per haps, Lady ," and the Prince laugh ed heartily, "if I write in your album, you will sell the book to provide funds for the abolition of the monarchy in England." A discharged soldier, lately returned from the Philippines, tells a tale of a shirt which is too good to be lost His company was returning from a long and tiresome scouting trip, in which most of the men had parted with the greater part of their wearing apparel, when he saw on a clothes-line in the grounds of a residence adjoining a big stone church two very good shirts, hung out to dry- As he had at the time only half a shirt to his back, he pro ceeded to help himself to a whole one. Whereupon a woman came out of the house and said to him, In passable Eng lish : "You will pay for that on the judg ment day." "Madam," he replied, "if you give such long credit, I will take both shirts," which he proceeded to do. A charge of watch robbery was pre ferred before the late Sir James Ing ham by a gentleman against an indi vidual who had traveled in the same carriage with him from Bournemouth, but in the end it was found that the watch had not been stolen, but had been left home by the prosecutor. To mollify the innocent man, Sir James said: "It is a most remarkable occur rence. To show, however, how liable we all are to make these mistakes, I was under the impression when I left my house at Kensington this morning that I put my watch (which, I may mention, is an exceedingly valuable one) In my pocket, but arriving at this court I found that I must have left it at home by mistake." While business was proceeding an old thief at the back of the court went out, jumped into a hansom cab, drove off to Sir James I'ngham's residence, and. by represent ing himself as a bona fide messenger, obtained possession pf the watch, which has never been heard of since. Chinese Proverbs. An indication of the Chinese charac ter can be inferred from the nature of their proverbs. A few of them are' as follows: "If the blind lead the blind they will both go to the pit;" "An old man marrying a young wife is like a withered willow sprouting;" "A wife should excel in four things, virtue, speech, deportment and needlework;" "Every day cannot be a Feast of Lan terns;" "Would you look at the charac ter of a Prince, look at his Minister, or the disposition of a man, observe his companion, or that of a father, mark his son;" "The higher a rat creeps up a cow's horn the narrower he finds it;" "Let us get drunk to-day while we have wine; the sorrows of to-morrow may be borne by to morrow."

By the printed reports of recent examination of applicants for positions in tbe census office at Washington an astonishing amount of ignorance is shown to exist among the applicants They are especially and funnily ignor ant, says the Washington Star, regard ing the famous men of history as to the time in which they lived and as to what they accomplished. Fifty-two persons entered the competition and only 14 reached a percentage above 90. while 19 failed entirely. Some of the answers would be taken for jokes did they appear anywhere else than in a department report. There was Jefferson Davis, for in stance, who was placed on record by one applicant as "a famous general of the war of 1812." Another stated that Mr. Daivs "was president of the United States and wrote the declara tion of independence." The first post master general was another who wor ried the applicants considerably. One man suggested George Washington another Patrick Henry, and a third Wendell Phillips. A young southerner disposed of all argument by stating that it was "a gentleman named Bis- sell." William Cullen Bryant, whose boast was, "I am a bookman," had his iden tity mixed with that of the Nebraska orator by a young woman, who stated William Cullen Brvant was the Dem ocratio candidate for president, a silver advocate and a resident of Nebraska. And even Abraham Lincoln appeared to be examined in varied lights. Here are some of the answers to the inquiry concerning him: "Lincoln was a great general and distinguished himself in the war of 1812." "Abraham Lincoln was a personal friend of the colored race and was one of the signers of the declaration of in dependence." "Abraham Lincoln was born in llli nois, where he worked from rosy dawn till dewey eve as a farmer's lad until he became president." hows -rms; We offer One Hundred Dollars r.e-ward for any case of Catarrh that can not bo cured by Hall's uatarrn cure.
