MORE QF THE DISCOVERY OFTIIE Afl(.
The story of the authentic Noah's
Ark embedded in a glacier on Mount
Arnrat is still being elaborated by
tho American newspapers. From
these sources wo learn, respecting
tho find of tho Tut Irish Commission,
that "the inhabitants of.the country
state that tho existence of this odd
construction has been known for
centuries, but that on approaching it
a hideous demon was seen at one of
the windows, putting the curious to
llighfc by is frightful contortions.
' Without being intimidated by these
stories, the president of tho com
mission has visited the mysterious
structure, the spirit dwelling in it
has been captured, and afterwards
was sent to an American, of Broad
way, New York, called Bunnell."
We also learn, on the same veracious
authority, that the documents found
in the ark having given rise to the
idea that it was insured in the Atlan
tic Mutual Insurance Company, a
reporter has been sent to 51 Broad
way, to question Mr. Dennis, the
vice-president of the company, con
cerning this matter. Mr. Dennis,
after searching the archives of the
company, found in those of the year
2,300 B.C. the following note": "An
ark constructed by Noah, the pro
perty of Noah and Sons. Tonnage,
42,418,950; length 25ft.; width,
87ft; 6in. ; depth of hold, 65ft.
Gin. Gopher wood. Destination:
transport of passengers and animals.
Classed Al." Mr. Dennis, con
cludes tho narrator, lias been unable
to reveal the professional secret of
the cost of the insurance, whether
the life of Noah was insared, and
whether the menagerie was .the sub
ject of a seporate policy.
The German element has, from the
first, been a powerful factor in the
national development of this country.
To it we undoubtedly owe a very
large share of our industrial, com
mercial and agricultural prosperity.
"We have used no artificial stimulants
' to draw the emigrant to our shores.
He had come dependant upon his
own' industry, intelligence and enter
prise. He has brought with him a
strong physique, thrifty habits, and
a stolidity of character that has
proved an invaluable introduction
into our national life. The Germans,
moreover, have proved themselves
singularly loyal and devoted to their
adopted country ; the active and deci
sive part they took in our civil war is
sufficient evidence of this. Wherever
they have settled, or whatever oc
cupation they have taken up, they
have shown themselves to be law
abiding, God-fearing and peace
loving citizens. Boston Herald.
