Murray's Maga/ine, had a young one to whom she was perfectly devoted. It died, and she became inconsolable. Formerly the gentlest of creatures, she grew irritable and even dangerous. One morning she broke the chain which confined her and escaped into the forest. One night, about ten days after her escape, the officer who had been in charge of her went out to lie in wait for bears at a pond in a jungle at sorae distance. As he and his native attendant were returning, early in the morning, the native silently nudged him, and they saw in the d i m . gray light an elephant with her calf making their way toward th? camp. They buth sprang behind trees and when the elephants had passed the native insisted that tho older one wa.« their old friend. When they reached the camp they found that the truant had indeed returned, and had gone from one person to another, touching each with her trunk," as if she were exhibiting her adopted child, which she had evidently begged, borrowed or stolen during he/ absence. Her good temper and usual docility returned at once, and her owner blessed the good fortune which had enabled her to steal a child. Proofn of LazJness. When Cyrus W. Field owned The Mail and Express he occasionally poked around the various editorial rooms to get some idea of bow his paper was beiBg conducted. "Who is that man who sits in that room to the right up stairs"' he race asked of his managing editor. 'That's Mr. , our exchange editor," replied the managing editor. "Well," said Mr. Field, frowning, "it's my opinion that he isn't worth hia salt. As often as I have been in this office I've never seen him do anything except r?ad newspapers, and he's always got a big pile of 'em ij front of him."--St. Louis Republic. A Sound .Legal Opinion. E. Bainbridge Monday, Esq., County Att'y, Clay Co., Texas, says: "Have used Electric Bitters with most happy results. My brother also was very low with Malarial Fever and Jaundice, but was cured by timely use of this medicine. Am satisfied Electric Bitters saved his life." Mr. D. I. Wilcoxson, of Horse Cave, Ky., adds a like testimony, saying he 'positively beb'eves he would have died, bad it not been for Electric Bitters." This great remedy will ward off, as well as cure all Malarial Diseases, and for all Kidney, Liver and Stomach Disorders stands unequalled. Price, 50c and SI at Dr. A. J.

Smith Russell was at the Grand last night and the people had to hustle to get seats to see the new play, "A Poor Relation," a humorous and pathetic story of domestic life, in which the popular and inimitable star is given ample scope to display his talents as a parlor comedian, his speaking angularity, his wonderful facial expressions, and his guy spirits when the clouds of adversity cleared away. In "A Poor Relation" Mr, Russell is seen at hie best, and the vast audience was thoroughly pleased with the performance Applause was enthusiastic and laughter so frequent that the progress of the dialogue was often interrupted. Nearly all of the first floor seats were occupied, standing room taken in the balcony and the gallery well filled. It was in the judgment of many the best entertainment yet Riven in the new house- The support included Master Richards and Hazel Chappel 1 , two bright little children; Misses Grace Filkins, Maud Hosford, Lillian Owen, and Aleri Osburn, Alfred Hudson, Arch.
