She wa ordered out lor rehearsal

Gypsy was nearly uerossiliu bridge

Tie circus hands were immediately
on tho spot, and various unsuccessful
attempt were made to get Gypsy
At last Mr. June bethought him of
the na'.uial amae'ity of the animal,
and ordered a number ot bale of hay
to be brought, One by one thme
were rolled into th cavity, and as
these eauio down Gypsy placed her
fore feel upon il and wailed patiently
for the next, taking caro to place it
in position before she attempted ti

met with cheers. , She suffered no in
juries more serious than a slight afna
sion of lliu skin ou her side.
"You'll never get Gypsy in cross

showman ot thirty year experience,
said. ' Win ii an elephant lias once
met with an accident, il will forever
avoid ilie spot where il oceured.
Some vear ago I waa showing Km

to su'pperl the elephant, The In idge

the country and paid an old farmer

barn all the swallows we wanted.
We got a dozen or so, ami the night
ot the meeting a number, of us were
present, distributed judiciously about
the room, each boy with a swallow in
hi pocket. Tlie church waa lighted

birds, of course, went st might for th

their wings put the lumps out. We

course, shrieked. All was comnx).

The Devil's Fruit.
Total oe were first introduced at
Moscow by a Mr, Kowlund, eighty or
ninety year ago, At first the people
would r.eiihcr plant nor touch them,
saying they wtre tho devil's fruit,
given to him on his complaining t
God that hu had ne Iruit, wh u he
wns told to search in the earth for
some w hich Im did, and found pota '
toes, A curious Berwickshire legend
which, however, is palpably anach
ronic, attributes the introduction of
potatoes into Scotland to that famous
wjard of the North, Sir Michael
Scoit. The wizard ami tho devil,
being in partnership, took a lease of
the farm on iheMartnuu estate, called
Whitehouse. The . wiaard was to
nianago tho farm, tho devil managed
tho capital, . The produce was to be
divided as lollows: the hrst year
Sir .Michael was to have all that grew
above tho ground, and his partuer all
that grew below; the second year the
shares were to bu I he opposi'.e way.
His Satanic .Majesty, a i usual in
such cases, was fairly overri ached in
hi bargain, lor the wizard cunningly
sowed all the land in the first year
with wheat, und planted il with pota
toes the second, so that the devil got
nothing for hi share but w heal stub
hie and potato lops. And thi
courting rotation Sir Michael eon
tinned until he had notcnly beggared
hi partner, but exhausted the soil.
In spite of this legend, however, we
must t oniiniie to g't e credit to Sir
Waller l.uleigh for having been the
introducer of potatoes into that coun
try. Tho first that tried then:, we
are tt Id, fell into the very natural
mistake of eating Ihe apple and dis
regarding iho roots.
