Where He had Seen It. Traveling In Donegal not long ago, a clergyman engaged a loquacious boatman to row him on one of the lakes and show him the sights. They inspected a ruined castle with the legend of a banshee. Tbe clergyman, thinking he would put a poser to the loquacious Irishman, who knew every thing, inquired: "Have you ever seen a banchee, PatT" . "Aye, bedad, that I have, your rev erence." "Indeed!" said the clergyman, with an Incredulous smile. "And pray, where did you see one?" "Stouffed, In a museum," replied the unabashed Celt, without any hesita tion, .. Evidently Something Wrong. Little Arthur and his mother were taking a walk along a country road. There were some ducks running back and forth across the road and Arthur lagged behind his mother watching them. He became greatly interested and a puzzled look crept over his face. After a while he ran up to his mother and, pointing back to the ducks, ex claimed: "Mamma, those ducks aren't made right!" "Why, yes, dear, why not?" his mother answered. "Well, they've got their eyes on the sides of their heads and mine are In front- Muscle Nteded. It was a beautiful New Year morn ing In the stone age.

This Is the year of the "elephant battle" in the great forests of Mysore, India. The hunting of these gigantic animals la permitted in India only every fifth year. On the average from 200 to 250 wild elephants are cap tured during the battle season, and these are trained for the various pur poses for which the Aslatlo elephant Is used. Everybody knows how con spicuous a part tamed elephants play in the great public spectacles in India. Indian princes and officials sometimes pay thousands of dollars for excep tionally 'fine and Intelligent elephants. After theyhave been properly trained they are "furnished with trappings gleaming with gold and splendid color. The howdah that an elephant trained for hunting carries on its back, and in which its master rides, while its driver places himself Just back of its head, frequently weighs more than 200 pounds, but the huge animal re gards it no more than a horse does a riding saddle. On a good level road an elephant will march at the rate ot five miles per hour, and he is capable of run ning, for short distances, with a speed of 20 miles an hour. He can carry, in regular service, from 1,200 to 1,500 pounds, and he would not greatly mind a ton or more. With his enormous muscles and his dead weight of five or six tons it is evident that his pulling r.nd lifting power must be Immense. Ho can pull down or root up small trees, can pick up huge logs with his trunk and carry or throw them around like sticks and since he Is a - very tractable beast when well' tamed, he often does farm work of which a team of horses would be utterly incapable. He can make a fence or place huge blocks ot stone in a wall. He is often employed to drag artillery wagons. It Sometimes Happens.

INFANT MORTALITY is something frightful. We can hardly realize that of all the children born in civilized countries, twenty-two per cent., or nearly one-quarter, die before they reach one year ; thirty-eeven ' per cent., or more than one-third, before the are five, and one-hall before they are fifteen I ' - We do not hesitate to say that a timely use of Caatoria 'would save a majority of these precious lives. Neither do we hesitate to say that many of these infantile deaths are occasioned by the use of narcotic preparations. Drops, tinctures and soothing syrups sold for children's complaints contain more or less opium or morphine. They are, in considerable quantities, deadly poisons. In any quantity, they stupefy, retard circulation and lead . to congestions, sickness, death. Caatoria operates exactly the reverse, but you must see that it bears the signature of Chaa, IL Hotelier. Caatoria causes trio uiooa to circulate properly, pores or. tne sain ana allays lever. Genuine Caatoria always bears the Affairs Reversed. An Irish tenant farmer, returning from a somewhat distant market late one afternoon, missed his way and got Into a bog hole, where he stuck fast.
