THE RAINDROPS WIN-
The little Raindrops were having
a delightful time. Thousands and
thousands of them were at play to
gether; and there is a great deal of
fun in a large company, if every
body is good natured and cheerful.
It was a holiday. The doors of
the dark cloud rooms in which they
were learning their lessons hud
been thrown open that morning,and
they were told to put on their gi ay
frooks and come out.
“You may go down to Earth and
stay until you are sent for,” said
the kind Sky.
A moment later the air was full
of tiny figures.goitig as fast as over
they could. They were running a
race, and each one thought herself
certain to win. The day was just
cold enough bo make running pleas
ant, and every time they glanced
back at the gloomy walls from
which they had been set free they
sang for joy.
Suddenly one littleDrop brushed
against her nearest companion, and
said in a low voice: —
“How do you suppose a stranger
came in among us? Look at that
creature in the fine white dress!
Who can she be?”
The other little Raindrop saw
the stranger at once. She was in*
deed very beautifully dressed in a
fleecy white robe, in which sh e
floated downward as if on wings.
Now, if ever you went out to spend
a merry afternoon romping with
some little friends, and found
among them a girl with whom you
were not acquainted,dressed in silk
and looking very grand, you may
be able to imagine how these Rain,
drops felt. They looked at their
dull colored everyday garments,
and telt very common and worth
less. At the same time they were
vexed; it was too bad that their
holiday must be spoiled.
“Ob, there's, another?” cried the
Drop which lias spoken first.
^“And another! and another!” ex
claimed her companion.
It was quite impossible to count
the beautifully dressed intruders.
They flew iu and out of the throng
of descending Raindrops, all of
whom stared bard and looked sor
“Oh, I should th ink they would
be ashamed of themselves, coming
where they aren’t wanted!” sighed
the two little friends. “Nobody
asked them. It was only our crowd
that was invited to visit the Earth
today. But oh, they have the
loveliest dresses! Who can they
“I know,” called mother Rain
drop, rushing past them: “they’re
Snowflakes. But why don't you
hurry up? Are you going to let
those proud things get to the Earth
At this warning the Raindrops
started on a swift run; but they
hud lost too much time already,and
sank to the ground beside one of
the dainty little strangers. She
laughed gayly as she saw their dis
“Well I got here first, didn't I?”
Her voice sounded familiar; but
the Raindrops were too cross to
think about that.
“We have not the pleasure of
your acquaintance,” they said sulk
ily, and turned their backs upon
“Oh, what a story!” cried the
Snowflake. You ought to leak
twice before you speak once.”
They could not help turning to
look at her again. She had thrown
off her beautiful white robe, aod
stood there in a gray frock exactly
liko their own. And who wus she?
One of their own schoolmates, re
leased like themselves that very
morning, and sent out for a romp.
“Why, we didn't know you!”
cried the Raindrops.
“But you ought to bo polite to
strangers,” said their schoolmate,
laughing so that she could scarcely
speak. “You started off in such a
hurry that you didn’t get a chance
to see your new winter dresses.
They are just like ours, so you
uoedn't be envious. Wo didn’t
want to wait long after jou started,
so we slipped on our new dresses
over our old ones and rnnaftoryou.
The next time we go back to the
clouds you can dress up us lino as
we did this morning.”
“And wear our new dresses eve
ry day?" asked the Raindrops, eu-

answered.—Catharine S. Holmes, in

The old man took off his hat
dubiously, and shook his head with
a long breath, and then remarked:

AN ELEPHANT JOKE,
The Big Animate Enjoyed It ee Much
ae Ite Perpetrator,
Elephants are credited with
more intelligence than most ani
mals possess, and Mr. O'Shea,a war
correspondent,who has seen a great
many elephants, thinks that they
are capable of enjoying a joke.
“A young friend,” he says, “aak-
od me once to show him some ele
phants, and T took him with mo,
having first borrowed an apron and
filled it with oranges. This he was
to carry while accompanying me
in the stable; but the moment we
reached the door tho herd set up
such a trumpeting—they had scent
ed the fruit—that he dropped tho
apron and its contents and sent-
tled off like a scared rabbit. There
were eight elephants, and when I
picked up the oranges I found that
I had fivc-und-twenty.

line, giving one to each. When 1
got to tho extremity of the narrow
stable I turned, and was about to
begin tho distribution again, when
I suddenly reflected that if ole-
phaut No. 7, in the same row, saw
me give two oranges in succession
to No. 8 he might imagine he was
being cheated, and give me a
smack with his proboscis—that is
where the elephant falls short of
human being—so I went to the
door and begun with No.l as before.
“Thrice I went along the line,
and then I was in a fix. I hai one
orange left, and 1 had to get back
to tho door. Every elephant in
tho herd had his greedy gaze fo
cused on that orange. It was as
much as my life was worth to give
it to any one of them. Wlnvt was
I to do? 1 held it up conspicuous
ly, coolly pooled it and sucked it
myself. It was most amusing to
notice the way those elephants
nudged euch other and shook their
ponderous sides. They thorougly

A Qeer Quaker Traveler.
A curious looking, white haired
old man, arrayed in a peculiar
garb, with a black choker and
broad brimmed hut, is at the Oc -
cidental Hotel. The old gentle
man is Isaac Sharp, of Warwick
shire, England, a Quaker and a re
ligious enthusiast. Ho is now
eighty-four years old und for fifty
years he has boon traveling in va
rious parts of the world, and this
is the interest of the Quakers.
He has just now returned from
1500 miles up the great Yang-tse-
kiung River in the interior of Chi
na. Hitherto he has been in Ice
audio various other places in Eu
rope, Asia and Africa. Iu tho
Dark Continent he visited the Con
go Free State, tho Orange Free
State, Basutoland and Madagascar.
“I spent a year and a half in
Africa,” said he, “a year of which
was in Madagascar; two years in
Australia and New Zealand, and
the remainder of six and a quarto,,
years in Canada, the United States
and Mexico. That was tho extent
of my last trip before this. This
time I have been out a long time
also, my great object being to visit
the interior of China and do what
I could there.

hearts of the people are everywhere
the same. I go now to the east, to
