GREASING THE ELEPHANTS.
; Rhinoceros, Too, Coated Twice a. Year
with Ka(iIoot Oil.
the flenhants and the
' rhinoceros in the Central park menag
'. erie get a coating of neatsfoot oil, which
of is thoroughly rubbed in with the palm

The oilingand the manipulation cleanse
tihe skin, remove the dead skin ana open
; the animate up nd
jmprove heir health, and they seem
to like the process. The oiling is done
ony in the spring and summer; if done
in winter the animal's would likely take
cold from it. The rhinoceros art the
park is in good condition and lively and
rather frisky for so big a brute. Some
times it steps about with a step that
is very much like a dancing step and
likely to surprise one who sees it for
the first time and has been accustomed
to regard the rhinoceros as an ani
mal -always slow and lumbering in its
movements. When the rhinoceros' cage
is cleaned, out, which is clone daily, the
keeper first attracts the great creature
to one side with a tempting mess- of.
food. Then he slips a noose of .rope
over the anima!8 born and settles it
down around the neck and makes the
other end fast around a bar or two of
the elephant's cage adjoining. This is
done to keep the rhinoceros from pitch
ing into the keeper if at should take a
notion. The same precaution is taken
when the rhinoceros is oiled. The ele
phants, however, kneel at the word of
sommand. It is not necessary to plant
a ladder against them in order to reach
the upper part of their sides in rubbing
in the oil. ;
CHARACTER IN THE HAIR. -
Students of the Subject Claim Much
Merit in the Theory.
It is a pretty hard thing to conceal
one's true character nowadays. A new
fad is hair reading, and this is said to
"give us away" in an unpleasantly ac
curate msnner. The new science is not
fully developed yet, but its devotees
have already discovered many interest
ing facts and are constantly searching
for more, says an exchange.
Fine hair is said to denote gentl
birth, and the amount of care the. hair
shows will determine the mode of life
It is also claimed that the closer the
ends of t'he hair cling together, that is,
naturally, without artificial force, the
greater is the intellectuality the owner
possesses. A tendency to curl denotes
inherent grace and a poetic nature
Straight hair is the sijrn of a firm, posi
tive and -practical disposition. Such
bad qualities as treaclrery and jealousy
are generally found in people with
I black, lusterless hair. The lighter the
hair the more sensitive and "touchy
the owner e-enerallv is. Brown hair
must be a. very desirable thing to pos
sess, for the hair readers say it is al
ways found on people havingin a high
degree common sense, good judgment
and reason. Red hair is a sign of hon
esty and also of cleverness. Nothing
whatever is said about freaks of tern
per as an accompaniment to red hair. It
may therefore be safe to conclude that
another popular idea has been dissolved
by the searchlight of science and in
PROVERBS AGAINST WOMEN.
The Feminine Sex Aronaea Satire Dnr
InK All Aftes.
A proverb Is defined by the learned
Dr. Ray as "an instructive sentence or
comment and pithy saying in which
more is generally designed than ex
pressed, famous for its peculiarity and
elegance, and therefore adopted by the
learned as well as the vulgar, by which
'tis distinguished authority," says the
Philadelphia Press. A large majority
of proverbs are of a satirical character
and are leveled against women. We
find, curiously enough, that the sever
est reflections upon the femiinine sex
emanate from those nations which have
the reputation of being particularly gal
lant, notably the Spanish, Portuguese
and Italian. Widows are invariably
made the butt of ridicule, wives are dis
