WILD BEASTS ON THE BaA. A French scientist has made some interesting observations as to the behaviour of different wild animals at sea. The polar bear, he says, is the only one that takes to the sea, and is quite jolly when aboard ship. All others violently resent a trip on water, and vociferously give vent to their feelings until seasickness brings silence. The tiger suffers most of all. He whines pitifully, his eyes water continually, and he rubs his stomach with his terrible paws. Horses are very bad sailors, and often perish on a sea voyage. Oxen are heroic in their attempts not to give way to sickness. Elephants do not like the sea, but they are amen- .ble to medical treatment. A good remedy is a bucketful of hot water containing three and a-half pints of whisky and 7oz. of quinine.
