William A. Gladstone.
In August, 1881, M. B. Thum, of New
ark, Mich., sunk two salt barrels in the
ground, placing the ton barrel about
two feet below the surface of the ground
thus, making the well eijrht feet in depth.
Nothing unusual was discovered about
the well until July, 1882. when fish in
large quantities were found in it.
Mr. lmim savs that last year he fat-
about 150 worth of pork by fish
taken from this marvelous well.
The water is muddy and the fish are live
ly and frisky. There are no streams or
lakes within several miles ofMr.Thura's
farm, and the onlysolution of the mys

passage from some river or lake to the

An old baobab in Africa is, then, more
like a forest than a single tree. The
ago is incalulable. Humboldt considers
them as "the oldest living organic mon
uments of our planet." .Some trees are
believed to be 5,000 years old. You can
cut a good-sized rooiu into the trunk of
a baobab, with comfortable accomoda
tions for thirty men, and the tree lives
on and flourishes. It produces a fruit
about a foot long, which is edible. As
an example of slow growth in England,
a baobab at Kew, though more than 80
years old, has only attained a height of
four and one-half feet. A kindred spe
cies to the African baobab grows in Aus
tralia. They have been measured, being
thirty feet high, with a girth of eighty
The fact that on looking back to the

Semitic man of Assyria or Palestine,
and the Central African of two varieties,
which travelers still tind as distinct as
ever, has led some of the most eniment
anthropological writers of the present
time to the conclusion that the causes
which brought about their differences in
types of skull, hair, skin and constitution
did their chief work in times before his
tory began. Since then as the argument
goes the races which had become adapt
ed to their geographical regions may
have, on the whole, undergone little
change while remaining there; and,
though some alterations are traceable,
as due to migration into new climates,
even these are difllcult to follow, masked
a they are by the nv-re striking changes
produced by' intermarriage of races

prehistoric period of vast length.
