THE KINO am"travelers.
Three travelers, who had bean found
asleep in th* royal park, where once
brought before King ,Tollimon. They
said they were story-tellers, who earned
their living by relating tales and le
"If that be so,” said the king, ' and
if you can tell stories worth hearing, you
are indeed welcome. The court story
teller has just bean banished for telling
the same story twice. It would bo a
ri|>ht royal idea to have three story
tellers instead of one.”
8i) the ihroe travelers, after having
been refreshed with food and drink,
were bidden to seat themselves at the
august foot of King JoHiinoii.
Presently one of them told the tale of
the wise cat.
A certain cat set out to seek his for
tune, and traveled through the whole
world.. At last ho camo to a country
• here a cat hud never been before
The inhabitants were at first frightened
by the strange monster^ but having ob
served puss killing the mice with which
the country was overrun, they pluukud
up couraj>e, and npproaching him, re*
quested that he should follow them be
fore the king. Puss complied willingly
enough, and the end of the matter was
that he was installed rat catcher to the
king, and a lirge salary bestowed upon
him. The faithfulness with which puss
discharged his duties raised him high in
the royal regard, and a circumstancc
soon occurred which advanced him still
further. Tbe king took his nnp by an
open window, and had a plate of chcr-
ries placed beside him that ho might eat
them when he awoke. A crow from thg
neighboring forest constantly stole the
fruit, nor had all the cfTirti of the
king's servant succeeded in destroyio;;
the bird. The cut, however, conucalcd
himself in the winditv-haiigings, and
pounced upon the unlucky maruudur,
and broke his neck. The kiug was full
of gratitude, and ordered that puss's
salary be increased. Soon after a bear
came and ravaged the king’s flock, ilis
majesty commanded puss ta kill him.
“I cau only do what I am able,” pleaded
the cat; but the king insisted. While
puss was coming, bruin ntlucked the
store of a swarm of bees, and was stung
to death. “You have done as I knew
you would, my dear cat,” said the king,
and would listen to no e.xplanations.
The cat received the Order of tbe itoyal
Nrxt an elephant came and ravished
the crops. The king sent the cat to at
tack him. “Alas I I can only do what I
am able,” again pleaded the cat, but
there was no moving the kin!>. While
the cat was coming, the elephant fell
into a pit and was killed.
"Vou have done as I knew you
would,” said the king once more ; and
the cat received the Order of the H.>yal
I'enknife, and the care of tha lloyal
great army marched to subdue the
kingdom. The King gave himself no
uneasiness. "Have we not the cat
here?” he asked. ‘'My dear, go and
put those troublesome fellows to flight.”
“.\las I your majesty,” said the un.
fortunate cat, "I can but do as I am
able, and luck will turn at la^tbut the
king was stubborn as ever. And while
the cat was coming, a band of the encmv
fell upon him and destroyed him; and
they overthrew all the kingdom. The
king was taken prisoner and compelled
to feed cats all his life. “That ungrate
ful cut I” he ountinually exclamod.—St.
THACKERAY ON THE CLERGY.

"And I knuw this, that if there are

to the poor generously who deny them,

could do the same, and let me whisper
my belief, entre nous, t|fat of those emi-
oent philosophers who cry out against

who have got their knowledge of the

not wanting for the purposo of attempt

and no liitle exertion, we succeeded in

thu least suspition in their minds that

ration of this fact, a tugging at tlie line
and tho sudden moving of the boat was
sullicient. Lances und rifles were
quickly seized; for these animals, when
ounded and maddened by pain, are
fugly und dangerous customers, and
have frc(|uently been known to rip the
pUoks out of a boat with their formida
ble tusks, and thus seriously endanger
the lives of tlie crew. We had not lung

alongside denoted that our victim was
coming to the surface. .Vii instant after,

wreak his vengeanceain the bout; but
his enemies were too powerful, and with
the united aid of bullets ai'd lance
thrusts, the unwieldy breast was forced
to succumb to thu superior power uf bia
