The Ground Burning Up.

One of the strai zest of phe

It is no more , or loss than that

into smoke and passes on over
the summit of the hill, distribu

The steamer Celeste, on -her

Origin of Coal.
According to Prof Wurtz the:
formation of coal depends entire-;
ly upon the action, of the' iron
which was dissolved in the ,wa-i
ters of the coal period, The com-
bmations of iron wita which coal
is always accompanied are py-j
rites, iron spar, and - hydrated
oxide. These wera.flnuhtlftbnrlA;
rived from the, strata interjected
between the coal beds. , In this
case, the oxygenated 'water '.ap
peared to act upon tiie metallic
sulphurets which were contained
in the crystalline slates, f rom the
destruction af which these . coal
strata were derived. , Coal, con
sequently, is the , normal result
of the , eremacausis of orgamo
substances in waters which con
tain sulphate of iron and free
carbolic acid. An immense pres
sure upon the mass,, while , in! a
plastic condition, was also, with
out doubty an additional . element
ot importance. t

Can You Afford It? Sagacity of a Mare--A Case
From the Virginia City Mountainan, September
A TftmaTlrftlilfi inefanra inf ta
sagacity (is it 'not reason? of a
horse has come to our notice.
Mr. John Fletcher of Norwegia,
owns an unbroken cayuse mare
whioh runsln apasture adjoining
his house. " The mare, which is
very wild, has a . young colt at
ner side. A lew nights since,
after r. .Fletcher had returned,
he was" aroused by the mare com
ing to the window of his house,
and by pawing, neighinsr. and in
every way possible trykurtocet
his attention. This continuing
for some time he got up and went
out and drove her away, and re
turned again to bed : but she im
mediately returned, and if possi
ble increased her demonstrations;
he again went out, when ; the
mare came ,. up to . him and rub
bed her nose against him, al
though always before she had
been very shy of allowing any
one to come within reach of her.
then ran on a few - yards before
him continuing her neighing;
then, as he did not follow her,
she returned to ? him rubbinc
- . o
against him in the most demon
strative manner, v He attemDted
.to drive her off, struck her with
a stick, and followed her a few
yards to frighten her awav. "As
soon however,' as he; turned to
ward the house she returned and
in every ;wayr tried . to prevent
him from doing so. ' H then re
marked that her colt was not
with her, a fact he had not no
ticed before: as it was quite dark,
It occurred to him then to follow
her, which he did. So soon as
she saw he was doing so she ran
off before him, stopping every
iew yaras, turning' arouna to see
