She is not altogether destitute ol uniier

can say a lew words, such as ir.'u, papa,
gain, a cat, cunfio, the country, and some
few others. W en she was asked if she
would like to leturn to the country, she

fa's whatever is given to hei. but prefers
uncooked mea t, and vegetables. In the

with an txti Hotditiary atipetite
cloihcs appear as it they wete placed en

was ever team g her clothes, in spite f
every care that was laktn to prevtnt her.
