Prnfessor cdlwlwisch. the well-known
naturalists of Bavarna, while traveling
with the Stanley expedition in time heart
of Afrka noti'cl a iplant with a peculiar
steel foliage, alld on examilation it was
fcndcl that the shrub, althouglh grow
ing like otlher pl)ants from tlw soil, was
practically comlallxui of ironl, nays the
Philadelphlia Timesn. TIe leaves, althoughl
very thin, were bent with great diffllculty
and the twigs and branclhew rsisted pres
sain. with a for'e e'quaml to the sameni
amount of iron, anii to ncure a leaf it
was naee-ar to separate it froIn tihe
ina with a file.
While Professor Schelwisch was clig
ging at the hble of this plant for the lulr
pose of making an exalninatkmn of the
roots, the natives crowded around him in
garet numbers. gesticulating in a soonac
inga nsner. The professor desisted fron
his work and the interpreter was sent for.
He explained that thsl was a holy tree
and worshipped by the natives in their
fetich religion as a God plant, and that to
dig one up would bring ruin and desola
tion upon the whole village and srround.
Prof. cu helwish offered to buy tmhe
plant, and, taking oult a handful of i-o
per coins, gave tlhel to the savages, who
gladly accepted the money and dlstribh
ted it among themselves. The profesnor
then returned to tihe work of digging iup
the unique plant, but had not made any
great progress when time natives again
set upIxn hinl. Throulh the interpreter
tihe professor informnle thelll that he had
legally lbught tihe plant and intended to
remove it. As soon as thil message was
aIlade' known to tie savages every one
who had repmilved a coin calne and
drpped it in time hole at the base of the
shrub. Prof. Schelwisch allowed the
coins to remain in thie hole an walked
away toward the inotain to hulnlt an
Next day, as tie party were reparilng
to continlme the march, the pofessor was
curious to know if time coins lead Irmsained
undisturbed during tim niglht bl the super

metal plant was astonished to fillnd that it
had changedl its color com(pletely. In
