Mirewtl Monkeys lit 11 Cornfield.
In a vciy IntcicBtlng aitlclo rccoiitly
published by tho "l'opular Sclcuco
Monthly" on tho "DIrcctlvo Faculty In
Unites," tho foray of n trlbo of monkeys on
a field of corn Is described. When tlioy
get ready to start on their expedition an
old monkey, tho leader of tho tribe, with n
slnff In his hand, so os to stand lipilght
more easily, inarches ahead on (wo legs,
thus being more elovated than tho others,
so as to sco signs of danger inoro icadlly.
Tho rest follow him on all four.'. Tho
leader advances slowly aud cautiously,
carefully rcconnoltcring In all directions,
till tho party arrives at tho cornflclJ. Ho
thru assign tho t cnttnclA to tholr rcspcctlvo
posts. All being now In readiness, the
rest of tho trlbo ravago and cat to their
heart's content. When they rctlio each
ono cnnles two or t!iic.) cars of cum along
aud from this provision tho sentinels aro
regaled on their arrival at their lair. Hero
we sco ability to rule and n willingness to
submit to rule; a thoughtful preparation
of means to tho end In view, and n recogni
tion of tho rights of tho sentinels to ho
sultally rewarded at tho rloso of tho expe
dition. Wherein dues all tills differ from
a similar foray of n triboot savago men?
Tho only difference that really exists Is in
degree; otherwise It Is much tho same.
