He tookthat skin, and he shook that skin, and he scrubbedthat skin, and he rubbed that skin just as full of old,dry, stale, tickly cake-crumbs and some burned cur-rants as ever it could possibly hold. Then he climbedto the top of his palm-tree and waited for the Rhi-noceros to come out of the water and put it on. And the Rhinoceros did. He buttoned it up theback with three buttons, and it tickled like cake-crumbs in bed.

So he went home, veryangry indeed and horribly scratchy; and from that day tothis every rhinoceros has great folds in his skin and a verybad temper, all on account of the cake-crumbs inside. But the Parsee came down from his palm-tree, under his hat from which the rays of the sun were reflected in more- than-oriental splendor, packed up the j cooking-stove, and went away in thedirection of Orotava, Amygdala, theupland meadows of Anantarivo andthe marshes of Sonaput — where allsmall people — beginning to breatheslowly and ev
