gree of losthet
lcism is found in many families of the
anlraal kingdom; while ethics, con?
crete, it is true, vet, nevertheless, pure
and well defined, has reached a remark?
ably hijrb degree of development. I do
not claim for the lower animals a con?
science such ?> man possesses, but I do
claim that some of them have acquired
a psychic element which dimly fore?
shadow* a knowledge of the difference
notween good and evil in their con?
crete meaning. We find the evidence
of ?this concrete ethical element in all
animals which have memory, and which
are at all social in their habits. The
srvap in its primitive condition, before it

became domesticated, wns essentially a
social animal: so, also, was aud is the
elephant. The ant. the bee and the
Wasp* arc social animals; so. also, are
some of the birds; antl it is in these
.\nimols that we tiiut evidence of con
jroto ethics. Concrete ethics concerns
the Individual weal alone of the ani?
mals in which it is to be noticed; it
subserves the purpose of preserving
the species, of continuing thu race, and
is strictly material: hence it should
not be confounded with abstract ethics
*!To put it plainly, the ethics of the
lojtver animals is simply social law.
Aeath'ptleism, however, is confined to
ne particular family, Wo Hud evi?
dence of it throughout the entire ani?
mal kingdom Nature bun in,planted
tho- love of beauty (ornament I in the
receptive ganglia of almost everyliv
ingcreAittrc, however dimly it. tuny be
ie.lt. It is intimately associated with
sezuoJ^. passion--thut strongest of ail
animal desires?and though latent in
must Cff the lower animals in some it is |
most powerfully developed There
no truer law in the whole system of
?volutibn than the law of selection, and
.this^taw is based on an aesthetic
emotion, the love of beauty und sexual
desire. , No matter how low wo do
[soend in'the scale ofunimuJ life, where
eves we find a mating of animals we
,fin'rl a development of color or of sub?
sidiary adjuncts, such as hair, feathers
?cicrescnees whose functions are
purely ornamental. These ornamental
adjuncts arc commonly found in the
male, though in some instances not?
ably the insects) the female possesses
them, instead of the male When mat?
ing. thOBO natural ornaments are ul
ways displayed to the best advantage
On the 10th of lust August, while
walking in my garden, two butterflies
alighted on the wall in front of i
Tho female remained quiet and observ
vunt, gently waving her wings np and
down, and keeping her antennae in
continuous vibratory motion. The male
ciroled around her walking in a ram
juint manner, with hit. wings, out'
stretrdrt'd to their fullest extent Then
he approached the female, waving his
win^s slowly and graoefully, aud walk
ing*m a stately and affected style, j
Vt'hen became within an inch or two
of her he relaxed his proboscis erected
his antennao. and quivered his wings

cv&ootly cjUled attention to all his
points of beauty during -his courtship
aaa^ahdy bewitched the female with
his elegance, fite ueatity 01 ms tonn
and vestment completely overpowered
her virgin coyness.
The dragon fly is another graceful
wooer, nnd shows nil his points of
beauty and oruaincnt ?hen courting
tho female, lie will alight near her on
a twig or .on the ground, and rapidly
vibrate hi* wings; his abdomen plays
up und down In unison with his wings,
and he often performs u short but
stately march in rroiit ol the object <>t
his affection Mite those of the but?
terfly, the love scenes of dragon flies
commonly occur in midair, though it
has been my good fortune to witness
the scene just described on several oc?
At or about tho time the queen I.
feels the first promptings of love, and
In-fore she takes her (light from the
hive in search of a lover, the drones
may be seen any bright day congregat?
ed about the entrance <>f the hive, or
making short aud purposeless lliglits in
the vicinity. They remind one very
forcibly of the youths oue sees loitering
about church doors or the outran. of
theater-., awaiting the outcoiniugs of
their sweethearts. The drums .ire
much handsomer thuu the worker-,;
their markings are different, their
colors are more vivid and their bodies
arc more graceful. I have repeatedly
noticed them on tho footboards of
hives walking slowly and sedately up
and down or utakiug queer little waltz?
ing movement?, vibrating their ivlngs
in a rapid and agitated manner. When
the queen Hies forth she i-- I mined late?
ly surrounded by a bevy of drone lovers
ller choice of a lover may be the re?
sult of an accident, but 1 do not believe
this is the case on all occasions A queen
and drone once fell at mv feet, and,
upon examination, I found that the
queen was itsing her sting vigorously
ami effectively. The drone soon died,
whereupon the queen abandoned him
and accepted another lover before
sh<- disappeared from mv sight
This seems to me to indicate
that the queen exercises on occasions
tho right of choice. Many Insects give
unmistakable evidences that they
knowingly show their points of beauty
when seeking to mate. I here must be
some appreciation of blpauty In animal
for whoso benefit these exhibitions are
luade. otherwise they would be purpose?
less displays, a condition of affairs that
nature does u,>t permit..
tlu-ds are skillful and accomplished
wooers, anil the males of all spec
show themselves off to the best of their
abilities when seeking to mate. Sooe
of them are grotesque and bi/urrc. and
perform clownish and absurd antics
during courtship, while others are ex?
ceedingly graceful in their gontlc en?
deavors to gain mates. The bluebird's
courtship is an Idyl of tho spring
The male will take his place close b;
the female and commence his love
song. His soft, cxigeanl warble is the
very embodiment of passionate love.
Over and over again he sings his love
fioug. but the demure little cOquottc by
his side will not yield, lie then takes
his place iu front of her, elevating and
quivering his wings in u very ecstasy

changes its character and becomes loud
and confident; he turns und calls at?
tention to tho beautiful blue of bis
coat, to tlic vivid scarlet of Ins rest; to
his gr.'KS'ful and well-forme,I hudy.
The female Is overpowered bj this tor?
rent of eloquent pleading and finally
yields, accepting him as her lover.
The peafowl is clownish and bizarre
In hia courtship, and captivates the fe?
male by indulging in the most absurd
and grotesque antics. Several males
will form a "stamping ground," l>eat
iug down and removing all the weeds
aud grass in a space ten Or tiftccu feet

has been tixed to suit their taste, they

The ruffed grouse goes through an
analogous performance, but his love
dance is by no means as grotesque as
that of the peafowl. One day while

I heard a queer drumming and twitter?
