SUnawflna @a ztttt. WEDNESDAY EVENING. APBIL 12 1RP3. The Elephant Remembered.?In IMttsburg five months ago a small boy, with several companions, was feeding one of the elephants at the zoo in Scheuley Park, known as Gusky. He handed her buns on a nail fastened in the end of a long Mick. The boy for fun jabbed the nail deep into the ele? phant's trunk, and then ran away. Sun? day the same boy visited the zoo. Sud? denly the eleghaut threw her trunk in the air, and, trumpeting, made a rush at the boy. Kee] er Andy Neelan se ized a pilch fork ami ran for the elephant, shouting "Hack !" For the first time in her life, Gusky refused to obey. She had thrown the boy up against the side of the shed and was rushing for him with her trunk. In a moment more she would have trampled him under her feet. The keeper thrust the fork into her shoulder and forced her back, sav ing the boy"s life. Gusky sank back into her corner and gazed appealingly at the keeper, but she was beaten. The crying, frightened boy at fust denied that he had ever hurt Gusky, finally confessed. Neelan warned him never to come there again, adding: "Jf you ever sec that elephant any? where, you start to run, because she'll be after you. She will know you twen? ty years hence." Diamonds From The Skies.?The ?pie.-tion of "diamonds falling from the skies'' has been investigated at the French Ara^emy ? f Scieno s by 31. Ber thelot, under very peculi; r circum? stances. M. Daubree, the geologist, read a let? ter received from Mr. Nordenskjold, and in which the illustrious Swede de? scribed experiments tlicit on meteoric iron, which was found to contain a cer? tain quantity of diamonds and which ?ould not be worked into any tool by the best Stockholm blacksmith. This circumstance reminded the learned perpetual secretary of a story narrated by Aviccnna about Mahmoud the Gasnead, the Mussulman conqueror of Imlia. A large lump of iron having fallen from the heavens, it was decided to present to the prince a sword made out of it. According to the Rastern nations, the arm should have been pos? sessed of secret virtue. Unfortunately, it. was impossible to work it, very like? ly because some diamonds were includ? ed in the meteoric mass. SOCIETY DIRECTORY. Knights Templar.
