enough to elude the eagaclty of the
elephant, which snatched up the child,
put It Into hi mouth, and began

In doing, but not before the child waa

In Its mad rage aelied the mahout,

Incident Repenting seemingly of bla
awful mlHdocd, the elephant gathered
up what was the moment before hit
master, proceeded to his (the mahout's)
bonne, and, depositing bis mournful
burden at bis door, passed on. The
people generally, In great dread, closed
their doort and windows. The elephant
wildly rushed along the streets and
came to the temple, the door of which,
too, had been closed. It thereupon
battered the door, and passing Into the
enclosure, furiously attacked the little
elephant of Tinnevelly, which It
pierced with Its tusks and soon killed.
Emerging thence, the elephant runhed
madly aloug the river close by, where tt
began throwing mud and sand all over
Itself. In the meantime, the police con
stables had got their muskets loaded,
and, climbing out of danger, took pot
hota at the furious animal, which they
eventually succeeded In disabling and
ultimately killing.

for the Impetus the gave to art In

carefully educated, has traveled exten

sense of the word, she Is a flne-looklng

day th rt came to this city a U Uw.n
Ituman Catholic priest, acooroi Mauled by
a ymng man. They Wk the b t for
IUril. While on the elratuer the
two are reported to t are maJe o much
disturbance that the boat offlcUI were
obliged to warn them to to ini'reclr-cuin-H-t,
or be put IT liio boat at the j
first landing.
Ilolh of the men were soruewhal un
der tbe Influence if liquor, a id, arriv
ing at their destination, took a row
boat to go ti.-uiiitf, a they weld, but
carried along" altogether too much liq
uid bait for a successful haul. An hour
later some men In a tag belonging to
Trcfethcren's Fish Company, tn ber
ay to Ilarpswell, ettpitd what looked
like a couple of seals swimming in the
bay. One man bad raiovJ hi rifle to
takd a shot, when tho captain made
out the objects to be the bead of men
swimming for life, and apparently very
much exhausted. They were picked
up just as they wore abjut to sink for
the last time.
Tbe rescued ones were no loss than
tbe priest and hi companion, who bad
caslzed tbelr boat shortly before the
appearance of the tug, and were en
deavoring to swim aihore.
On Sunday another priest arrived
here from Lewlston and took the delin
quent brother home. The affair has
created considerable comment here.

Last year Bishop Potter went out to
Tuxedo to confirm a class of young peo
ple In the new church there. A young
matron w ho had been a member of the
congregation of Grace Church while
the Dlshop was Its rector, and had ber
self been confirmed and married by
him, wrote and Insisted that he should
atop with her during hla stay at Tux
edo. He accepted. As a particular
honor she adorned his room with an
elaborate toilet set of solid silver that
Included more than a dozen pieces. The
Bishop came, confirmed the candidates
and went away. Hut the silver toilet
aet could not be found. It was not on
the dressing table nor In the bath
room, and the matron's astonishment
was great. Her annoyance was almost
as great, and for two days she won
dered what could have become of tbe
set, and whether the Bishop bed sup
posed It was a present On the third
day Bhe summoned up courage enough
to write and ask him if by mistake his
man or one of the servants had packed
up the silver toilet set with his lug
gage, and It had been overlooked In
Unpacking, etc. The Bishop answered
promptly, for the next day she received
this telegram: "Am poor, but honest
Look In the table drawer." The young
woman did look, and the toilet set was
found there.
Foar-I-rnf Clover Tsrty la fh Luteal
A four-leafed clover party Is a pretty
entertainment for a summer gathering,
especially If the hostess has a country
borne or a clover field In her yard. The
way to utilise the clover ta to decorate
! the house with its blossoms, both red
j and white. The linen and china should
! also be ornamented with clover blos-
Boms. In the hall there should be a
j little rattan table festooned with vines
j and clover blossoms, and covered with
I a green mat formed of Ivy leaves. On
' this should stand a large glass punch
', bowl filled with Iced lemonade, and
j Burrounded by small glasses. A young
1 girl In a dainty gown it might be one
of the new white delaines showing a
; clover leaf ehould preside over the
tempting beverage, as only a young girl
j can. At the close of the luncheon or
j tea the guests may be invited to hunt
! for four-leaf clovers, and those finding
; the largest number may be rewarded
with pretty clover pins, while the un-
fortunate who Andes the smallest num
ber may be given a pair of eyeglasses
j to aid in some future search. Jenness

He Can Cook lletterThsn Ills Wife, li
rauis More Confident.
Octave Thanet says that men use a
chafing dish better than women. Per
baps It is because there Is a gaudy trl
umph about chafing dish processes
which there Is not In other cooking ex
ploits. Men never like to work behind
a screen. They enjoy the tumult and
the crowd and the cheering when they
strike a telling blow. A woman Is
nervous to see a dozen eyes on her. Her
ears tingle at the good-natured con
ments. She 1b frightened, Bhe loses
confidence In herself. She looks fur
tively across the table at the man for
whom she cares for more than
all the rest, and be Is telling
the lady who gives such charming din
ners that he must send his wife over
to her for a series of lessons and It Is
all over for the poor creature at the
alcohol lamp. If Bhe be wise she will
tip the lump over and cover her retreat
A man's self-confidence Is of stouter
fibre. He Isn't looking at his wife, he
is looking at his diBh; If any ingredient
be missing to call loud and spare not
for that was voice given; naturally he
gets everything, whether he has for
gotten anything or no, and the entire
service of the meal stops until he has
had his will. A man will have two
maids and a large stately butler run
ning about the waiting room on his
preparation of terrapin a la Maryland,
or lobster a la Newberg; and he will be
no whit embarrassed. A woman Is
Beared to Interrupt the feast by with
drawing one servant And the man is
right and the woman Is wrong; for peo
ple can wait for their wine or their
sauces, hut an alcohol flame waits on
no man. But the difference between
man and woman as cooks Is too near
other burning questions for one to dis
cuss with the thermometer at 90.

HAVING investigated this Horse and Cattle Food, and having
become convinced that it was superior to any preparation
on the market today, I have consented to take the general agency
for the Middle and Western States. It is now being used by
many of the leading horse and cattle men, some of whom testify
to its worth and money-saving qualities. Among the number
who have endorsed it may be mentioned: Robert Bonner, Esq.,
of the New York Ledger; William Lockhart, Esq., Veterinery
Surgeon; Dan Mace, the famous trainer and driver, and H. E.
Bonner, Esq., Veterinary Surgeon, all of New York; H.M.Hosick
