A Story About a Tlinisii That
Soniewlint of n Tux 1'iion
A correspondent sends this curious
story of animal instinct
"I have often been urged to a.k your
acceptance of the following st;iy,
which goes far to prove that instinct
in animals and reason in man are vi i
much alike. It was seven years ago
that, while walking in the grounds
about my house Marie hall, Llan
dudno now a convalescent home in
the occupation of the Jtiruiingham
hospital fund, my attention was ar
rested by three thrushes, who were
flying excitedly to and fro in front ol
me, and so close that 1 could have
caught them. Following their moe
mcnts, I noticed that their path was
always over my little dog, a fox terrier
pup about ten months old, which was
lying in tiie grass-, and each bird as it
passed struck at him with its wings,
(oing to the dog. 1 found that it held
between its moiMh and feet a youny
thrush, fully fledged, but not quite
able to fly. I took the bird, quit1 un
harmed, from the dog. placed it in the
bush, gave the !og a little scolding,
went my way, and thought r,o mnr?.
about it. -Next u'.oi iiing, seated at
breakfast, 1 heard the cluttering of a
bird outside a door which opens into
a terrace garden. This door is par
tially glazed, and looking through it I
saw thrush hopping about close. to it.
I opened the door and walked slowly
forward. The bird hopped a yard or
so in front. I retraced my steps, walk
ing backward. The bird followed.
Thinking this might be mere coinci
dence, 1 repeated each movement. So
did the bird. Then, calling my sister-in-law
from the table, and Tieeom
panied by her, I followed the bird. It
kept the path (n very narrow one) as
before, until opposite the steps. There
it turned a right angle, and, after hop
ping a yard or two, jumped upon a rose
bush and waited a moment. Then it
Hew down the steps and kept the short
path which leads on to the drive. Once
upon the drive, its course was freer,
and it flew a fluttering zigzag course,
close to the ground. The view to the
left was hidden by a high hedge of
laurustiiHis, but after going down the
drive about twenty yards we were
free of this obstruction to the view,
and there in the grass, about ten yards
further, and exactly where 1 had
found hint with the bird the day be
fore, 1 saw my dog again. I now un
derstood what the bird wanted, and
bolted for the dog.whieh, sure enough,
had hold of the same young bird, or
another of the same nest. Again, quite
unharmed, I took It away, held it on
my finger, the mother hovering about,
and afterward placed it in the tree.
The distance traversed was about
sisty yards, and the time from my first
hearing the call outside the door until
I reached the dot; was at least five min
utes. The bird had evidently reasoned
that fhe man who rescued its young
the day before would do so again if he
could be called out. It knew, too, that
I must travel by paths, and so it never
left ihem. The terrace garden is
quite unfenced. and the direct line was
not in the direction of the steps. As
I have said, it was seven years ago, and
so some may think there is room foi
questioning. Ibi within a week 1 bar"
told the story half a dozen times, and
it had taken the set form in which it
is now given. 1 ought to say that the
dog had often been corrected for its
attempt to worry young rooks that
had fallen from the nests."--bondoi

luSTRALASIAN CORAL REEF.
It Is Twelve Hundred 3111pm Long
nnd Is One of the World's
That great barrier reef which
fringes the coast of Que -html north
of Brisb'ii? ;n cue direction of Torres
.-.traits, must always rank among the
wonders of the world. For 1,200 miles
the coral aniuialeulae have raised a
solid protection against the rage of
the ocean swell at a distance varying
from 20 to 150 miles from the shore,
leaving a comparatively safe and calm
inner passage, suitable for navigation
by the largest steamers on their voy
ages north nnd east. Sundry channels
penetrate the reef at intervals, and
whole fleets of trading schooners are
regularly engaged amid the intricate
labyrinta of coral islets.
Those who have seen the skeleton
madrepores and branching corals on
the shelves of a museum can form no
conception of the surpassing beauty
of the living organisms, vigorous at or
near th sirfa'j? of the tifi.!ucjnt
seas. On the ebbing tide we find every
description of animated coral growth
exposed, from the rounded masses of
brain coral to the stag's horn madre
pores, those of corymbose form, and a
variety too numerous to mention.
The brilliant coloration of the myriads
of polyps includes every shade, from
the more somber brown of the fungia
tribe to delicate lemon yellows, lilac,
pink, rich green interspersed with
golden hues, apple greens tipped with
violet, bright red, chocolate, purple,
and even blue. The various aggrega
tions cf minute vivacious animals pos
sess all modifications of radiated in
florescence; some have club-headed
tentacles, others expand in n feathery
fringe, while the number of rays to
each organism varies according to the
families and genera of coral classifica
tion. These gardens of the sea are too
beautiful for words. I5y subtle transi
tions the lime-secreting corals pass
into the uncovered sea anemones of re
splendent kinds, and the reefs swarm
with numberless echinoderms, nndi
branch mollusca, and parti-colored
fishes of most extraordinary shape
and size. Everything in the tropical
seas assumes a striking brilliancy of
color, and the 20 or more kinds of
holothuria are not the least interest
ing among the organisms which
abound. As the beche de mer, or
trepang, th.ese marine animals consti
tute esteemed gastronomic dainties in
the Celestial marts, the importance of
the export trade to the government
of Queensland being proved by statis
tics. Over 100 vessels ,are engaged in
the industry. The value of the pre
pared article is quoted from .30 to

and kind, and good ar.nual returns

"Marryatt," said a man who had fol
lowed the sea for many years, "speaks
of the old-fashioned sailor whose con
versation was a jargon of nautical
terms almost uriintellible to the lands
man as belonging to a class fast dis
appearing. If the change was notice
able nearly a hundred years ago, what
would he have thought of the man-of-war's
man of to-day, who will talk for
half an hour without using a phrase
that smacks of the ocean? Why, a cou
ple of days ago I heard a sailor speak
of a ship 'turning over' for capsizing.
Still, though the language may have
changed, I guess the spirit of our men
is as good as that of those who fought
