Goes Without Water As a Matter of Training' and Not From Choice* • and Get* Thirsty Quickly. There are many fables told about the camel r riding him Is supposed to make people seasick; he has the reputation of being very vicious; he is supposed to have several stomachs and to go for weeks without water as a matter of choice. I can only say that In nearly four years of experience I have never*met with a case of seasickness or heard of It; neither have I known a really vicious camel, except when they are in a state called by the Arabs "sa- lm, M which means "fasting," and corresponds to the "rutting" period in stags. As regards the camel's stomach,'I believe It is identically the •ame as that of any other ruminant, Or that, at any rate, there is no formation of stomachs which would enable him to do without water. His'abstinence, is merely the result «« training; and it is a fallacy to suppose that he is better without water cr can work as well. In the camel corps we watered our camels every second day in the summer, every third day 'In the winter, giving them their fill of water morning and evening on those days; but if In the summer we expected a long desert march without vater, we trained them beforehand by OBly watering every third day; but I never found that this improved their condition. The Arabs keep their cam- *ls longer without water, it is true, but then they travel slower and their •ndmalB are grajsed on soft food, containing a certain amount of moisture; this lowers their condition and makes them Inferior to a coru-fed ' camel whea hard work and long, fast jour- weys have to be done. We always found that if we put a grass-fed Arab camel alongside of »ur» it cried 6ut for water as soon Mid gooner than ours did. I say "cried >PWt," because a camel when It wants water moans continually, and there is BO n»pre painful sound at night in the desart than the ceaseless moaning of itblrsty camels.—CornhJJl Magazine. Ing newspaper, "did you see this dispatch from Washington?" "No, I did not," Mr.. Gorman replied, suavely. "Well, senator," the Interviewer continued, "this says that before you left Wash—" "Humph! First I've heard of it," said the senator, as he edged toward the elevator. "And senator," the interviewer persisted, "this also says that you were about—" "Yes, I'm always interested in—" But the opinion which the Maryland leader was expected to express never reached the reporters, owing to Mr. Gorman's flight upward in the elevn- tor at that particular momeut.-^New York Herald. Had Himself Arrested. A Philadelphia real estate man,when going through a vacant house the other evening to see that all was well, heard a slight noise behind him. Turning slightly, he saw the form of a man. As the broker was not armed, he did not like the Idea of meeting a burglar in combat, and, besides, he is very timid, BO he rushed to the door and fumbled with the lock; all the time yell- Ing at the top of his lungs. When he had got the door opened he looked back and then saw that the "burglar" was really his own reflection in the largi drawlng-room mirrow. He had nc sooner made this discovery than hi was seized by two policemen, who were attracted by his screams, and I took nearly a half hour for him to explain that he was not a housebreaker himself.—New York Tribune.

This is the boy that Kipling paints so aptly in Beetle, one of the schoolboy characters in "Stalky & Co.," the novelist's latest work. A mppy-faced sound-headed lad thlj boy Kipling seems to be. He was not patlcularly bright at school and gave no indication in those days of the genius which now marks all his work. JTrlondu, Horses, as a rule, are particularly docile and so it is not surprising to find instances of friendship between them and smaller animals, though occasionally the choice of their companions is uot a little strange. Many are the cases of mutual affection existing between horses and cats, 'the most famous being that between God- olphln Arab and a black cat, which on the death of his equine friend refused to leave the .body, and on being driven away retired to a hayloft, refused food and died of a broken heart. More strange, however, was a case, the truth of which is vouched for, in which a horse struck up an acquaintance with a hen and displayed immense satisfaction whenever she came his stall and nibbed against his logs, clucking greeting to her, friend, Dogs and horses generally get on well together, but the following story 'rom Manchester proves that In some :ases the friendship is something more Imn a mero toleration of each'other. A carriage horse, accompanied by his stable companion, a retriever qtqg,, tq which he was exceedingly attached, was drinking at a tVQUgU near the ex» hange. Whfte 'the dpg w'a's T./aMng ov his friend to finish Ills (Jrawgijt ^ arge mastiff p,icke<J a qu^irr^ -witJj im which ended 1 0 a flghj,' ^jje ; ma8i , .as way be supposed, had, jfte be|». er pf the battle, w^ i^ \ rfMevejp jvas severely 'bitten.

She I'aia For Both. Little Ethel, aged 5, accompanied her grandmother to church one sab- bath morning, and when the contribution plate came around she flopped in Die dime her father had given hev. The old lady was about to contribuie one also, when Kthel loaned'over and said in an audible whisper: "Xevs-i mind, grandma, I paid for two." Sininexe Foot Bull. The Siamese youth have only one game worth considering, and that is Indigenous—or native to Burmah—the question of parentage being a much- mooted one. At all events, the game requires a certain amount of activity, and is very interesting to the onlooker. It is a kind of football—in fact I have heard it called Burmese football—played with a ball about four inches in diameter, made of braided rotan, entirely hollow, very strong and j resilient. The number of contestant is not arbitrarily fixed, but play sharpest when there are enough form a circle about 10 feet In diameti The larger the circle after it ha passed the .desirable diameter tli slower the play. The game is to ket the ball tossing into the air withou breaking the circle. As a man falls a his opportunity he drops out, and whe there remain but four or six the wor is sharp and very pretty. The ball i struck most generally with the knei_ but also with the foot, from in front behind, and at the side. Some beeom remarkably clover. I have seen i player permit the ball to drop directlj behind his back, and yet, withou turning, return it clear over his heai and straight Into the middle of the cir cje, by a well-placed backward kk'l> of his heel,—Harper's Weekly, Amorltmu Military Record.

But /ilHioiigh there are a great number of tigers in Assam jungles, they arc diflicult. to locate, more difficult to see, and still more difficult to shoot. Many riieu can say "There, is a tiger in suc-h and biiuh a jungle, he killed a cow the other day;" few nv u can say, "I saw a, tiger," and if they did it would be most likely when they were not carrying a gun. Some men, howovor, can say, "i had shot at one over a kill or otherwise, and mis&ed." But thero are men who have «hot several, and others who have shot a groat many. Among the former were Smith and. Brown. Now Smith and Brown were staying on the large tea garden, and one morui- ing it was reported that a tiger had killed a cow very near the road lejidr- ing to the outgarden. Smith and Brown, men of 30 and 85 years of nisa, hai] not lost their keenness,' and imni«- cliately had a chuug put up in the most advantageous position, and when the sun was on the decline, between 3 p. m, and 4 p. m., took their places for the patient silent watt. About 5 p. m. the tiger appeared just outside the jungle without sound, and at the same inntant) the outgardon pony was heard being led along the road to the Big Bungalow. Smith whispered to Brown: "Let's wait and see what the tiger does," - The tiger sat on his haun<jhe$ and looked out along the road, then sub-aided slowly, slowly, down, down, mj- til he was quite Invisible. • An<l " tM syce and pony went by ----- i — - r yai'ds of the ti t scions of his pregeuge...
