His owner, an engineer officer, asked the doctor if he could do anything to relieve the poor animal. . . The doctor said he would try the nitrate of silver, which was a reme dy commonly applied to similar diseases in the human eye. The large animal was ordered to lie down, and at first, on the application of the remedy, raised a most extraordinary roar at the acute pain which it occasioned. . The effect, how ever, was wonderfwL The eye was in a manner , restored,' and the animal could nartiallv see. Tl e next day, when he was brought, and heard the doctor's voice, he lay down of himself, placed . his enormous head on one side, curled tip hia trunk, drew in his I reath just like a. man about to endure an operation, gave a sigh of relief when . it was over, and then, -by trunk and gesture, evi dently "wished to express his gratitude.

An old resident of this city about seventy years of age, who has long been known as a irequnser oj oar-rooms ana an excellent story teller, is said to have; been a steady gin drinker for over sixty years. ' The account of the quantity of gin he has drank is drawn from his own statements. What is quite xemarraDie is that he has never been seen intoxi cated during all the, time ha has been addicted to alcoholic drink. He says, however, that he believes giu will some day prove to be the cause of his death. At tnree years ot age ne nrst taetea tne liquor." Gin and sugar, lie says, were in those days given the children, and were considered beneficial to them. He estimates that after he had formed a habit for the drink, he drank up to the present time an average of two quarts of gin, a week.
