A GREAT GAME COUNTRY.
Thibet Will Prove a Treasure to the
When British troops have opened
the mysterious land of Thibet to
civilization travelers will be able to
see at close quarters many dnimals
rare and curious. If Thibet offers
no attractions to the tourist who re
quires luxurious traveling, to the
sportsman and the naturalist it is
a veritable raradise, though far from
Edenic in some respects can be
found here for only a brief survey
of some of the more remarkable an
imals of this strange land and these
are all of exceptional interest. One
of the largest of the mammalia is
the yak, or grunting ox. Standiig
between five or six feet high at the
shoulder the bulk of this strange
looking creature is not a little ex
aggerated by the enormous growth
of hair upon the lower part of the
body and tail. Beneath the outer
coat, moreover, there is a layer of
fine wool. known as "pushim,"
which is highly prized for the mak
ing of cloth. The extraordinary tail '
is one of the most conspicuous fea- P
tures of Thibetain monasteries or
lamaseries, being suspended on poles t
as streamers. Throughout the east d
these tails are used as fly whisks, and
in China they are dyed red and fixed :
to the roofs of summer residences C
as pendants. Living near the reg
ion of perpetual snow, and of fierce, i
disposition, the hunting of the yak s
is not to be lightly undertaken. In i
spite of temper, however, it is easily t
domesticated, and forms an invalu
able beast of burden, being wonder
fully sure-footed and capable or car
rying great weights. It is, however, C
unable to eat corn, and forced a
marches, exhausting alike to man and
beast, are often on this account nec
Barren and inhospitable, the high a
table-lands of Thibet harbors yet an- b
other hoofed animals as remarkable
:s the yak-the chiru antelope, for
example, which, like the strange b
saiga, has developed an enormous
swollen nose. It is supposed that
this enlarged nasal chamber is di- t
rectly due to the need of some special t
adaption for breathing the highly
rarified air of these regions. The lit- a
tie goat, or Thibetan gazelle, and a
magnificent wild sheep, the argall,a
manage, like the chiru, to thrive S
where in summer the sun scorchesa
by day and icy blasts prevail at night
and herds of wild dogs are ever on
the prowl. More difficult to stalk
than any other Thibetan game, the
argali still further allures the sports
man by the fact that it carries su
purb horns, which, may attain a
length of forty-eight inches, and a
girth of twenty inches at the base.C
Old rams will leap from a height of
thirty feet with confidence.
- The ibex and a remarkable animal
known as the bharal, or blue sheep
of Thibet, but which appears to be a
more great than sheep, also deserve i
mention here. The show deer, a beast E
nearly as big as the great wapiti, has t
very seldom fallen to the gun of the
European. No complete specimen
has yct been sent to Europe. In this
country it is represented only by five
skulls aend horns in the British mu- r
seum, and as many more in different
private collections. The horns are
of great size; the record in the num
ber of points-thirteen-is in be
tween the tips of the horns is over
three feet and the width between
arched feet nine and three-quarter r
Of the three species of wild ass f
which occur in Asia, one, thet kiang, ]
is peculiar to Thibet. Perhaps the i
mose curious of the large animals of t

it is remarkable, patches of jet black I
being set in strong contrast by a I
cream-colored ground. Little is<
known about the creature, but it is
conjectured that his coloration is pro
tective, harmonizing with the patches I
of snow and black rocks among
which it lives. One of the most bri!-'t
liantly colored of all monkeys occurs
in Thibet, known as the orange snub
nosed monkey. It lives in troops 1
amid the taller trees. After the col

about this animal is its "tip-tilted
THE CUNNING FOX.
:ndian Legend of Why He Is Hated
By the Wolf.
The wolf hates the fox. According
o the Iroquois Indians., this is why:
)ne cold, wintry day a fox who was
)rowling about looking to see whert
ie might steal his dinner saw a wagon
:oming. It was loaded with fish and
vas driven by some fishermen who
vere taking home their day's catch.
Ah, ah!" said the cunning fox.
Here comes my dinner." And he
ell down and pretended to be dead.
['he fishermen, seeing him, picked
iim up and threw him into the
vagon among the fish. Then the
ox slyly threw out some fish and
vhen the fishermen were not look
ng jumped off himself and made off
vith the fish he had thrown out.
)retty soon afte--ward he met a wolf,
vho -said, "I am hungry, and I guess
will eat you for dinner." But the
ox said, "Would you rather not have
ish for dinner?" The wolf replied
hat on the whole he thought he
vould prefer fish. Then the cun
ing fox told him of the trick by which
e had just got his dinner and ae
ised him to try it. The wolf was
leased with the idea, so he ran
hrough the woods and headed off
he team which the fishermen were
riving, falling down in the road be
or it and pretending to be dead. But
he fishermen, who had by this time
iscovered the trick-the fox had play
d upon them, instead of taking him
to the wagon, beat him with clubs
o that he barely escaped with his
fe. And on a hillside near by sat
he fox, who laughed and laughed.
A Fortune in Tobacco Ashes.
As everybody knows, the ash left
n burning tobacco is considerable,
nd, as a mater of fact, the mineral
iatter of the tobacco leaf frequently
mounts to as much as a fifth part
f its weight, says the Lancet. Thus
ton of tobacco leaf would yield 400
wt. of ash, which represents valua
le mineral constituents withdrawn
rom the soil, which have to be re
laced by abundant fertilizing. It has
een calculat d that a ton of tobacco
;ithdraws over ioo cwt. of mineral
onstituents per acre of land. In 1901
he home consumption of tobacco in
he United Kingdom was at the rate
f two pounds per head, or a total of
bout 40,000 tons, which represents,
t what is anow a probably low con
umption, approximately 8ooo tons of
sh annually conmmitted to the winds
r dissipated in some other way. On
he face of it there would seem to be
fortune in store.for the individual
rho could devise a successful means
or the collection of tobacco ash, and
is a great pity that so much valua
~le material should forever be lost
o the soil without any attempt at
irect restoration being made.

Iron Making in Early History.
Iron was tsed before history was
written. The stone records of Egypt
and the brick books of Nineveh men
tion it. Genesis (ix. 22) refers to Tu.
balcain as "as instructor of every ar
tificer in brass and iron," and in
Deuternomy (iii, IT( the bedstead of C
the giant Og was "a bedstead of v
iron." The galleys of Tyre and Sidon .
traded in this metal. Chinese records -z
ascribed to 2,ooo B. C. refer to it. s<
Horace speaks of it as superior to I
bronze. The bronze age came befor% n
the iron age because copper, found as "
nearly pure metal, easily fuses, and
with another soft metal-tin or zinc- t:
alloys into hard bronze, while iron, d
found only as an ore, must have the 3
impurities burned and hamered out s
by great heat and force before it can b
be made into a tool.
