On his coming home at night she said it was a pity he had no learning, and proposed hie going to an evening school. The old man wil lingly consented; but, after a month's trial, could not make anything of his book, so refused to go again. He went to work as usual, and one day the same gentleman being on the road, observed him, and usksd if he had heard of anyone having found a portmanteau some months ago.

It also deveurs fish, carrion, and even grain, when nothing else can be ob tained. At the end of May or beginning of June the young rooks devour immense aF AnntnVaParo 1T1 tYin wincftd state, and where these birds have been inconsiderably destroyed, on account of the supposed damage they have done, an utter failure of the crops has made the farmer glad to try to get them back again. Of the hooded or royston crow it may be observed that the feathers of the head, foreneck, and tail are black ; or the other parts ash-grey. It frequents marches near the sea. The bird is more mis chievous than the carrion-crow, and itb food is muoh the same. Mr. Selby says, ' On the seashore I have frequently ob- I served one of these birds fly up to a con siderable height with a cockle or mussel in its bill, and then drop it on rock in order to o...
AN ADVENTURE WITH A TIGER. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 16 May 1902
AN ADVENTURE WITH A TIGER. The ardent seeker after big game is often in perir of life and limb, but he rarely counts the danger, ?? or if he does, the excitement and glory Btrike the balance in favour of the risk. Colonel R., an Ehnlish officer stationed in India, met with a singular adventure while tiger hunting, in which he lost an arm. The Colonel had wounded a tiger from an elephant's back. The tigor charged, and the elephant, taking fright, bolted through the jungle. To save himself from being brained and swept off by over hanging branches, Colonel B. seized a stout limp, and raising himself, left the animal to go on alone through the foreBt. To his diBmay, he found he had not strength and agility sufficient to swing himself up to sit on the branch. In vain he strove to throw a leg over, and so raise himself. Looking down, the Bportaman discovered that the tiger had spotted him and was waiting below. The horror of the situa tion can be imagined — the enraged tig:er, and the hel...

MgH-0ME time ago there were two seals in the Zoological Gardens at Amsterdam which were so fond of their keeper that they would recognise his vo'ce a long way off and would run to meet him. These seals also became attached to an old gentleman and his granddaughter, who often went to see r . ? ? ? tnem in company wiuu » dog, and who always took the seala some thing nice to eat. These animalB were kept in a large pond, and they would come out of the water on seeing their friends, and sit down with them to have a good time on the sand. The small dog was very lively on these occasions, and he and the seals would frolic together as though they belonged to the same family One hot day, however, just in the midst of their fun, the dog fell into the pond, and after struggling for a moment in the water he tiank. The seals uttered a cry of dismay as he disappeared, and then, shuffling to the pond, they plunged in. In an instant the larger one had se...
