the imagination could have invented.
The Triceratops, which means the
"best with three horns." was particu

dwelt along the margin of that shallow
sea, and lived mainly on a vegetable
diet. He waded In the water also, and
may have devoured small marine ani
mals. A "Wonderful (Armor.
But he had to fight for life and he
was prepared for it. His enormous
body was covered with a hide stronger
than that of a. rhinoceros, and studded
with huge horny bosses, pointed like
thick spikes. Three great horns pro
jected from his head, which was from
six to eight feet long.

sides of his great 25-foot body and tall
were almost equally impregnable. This
shows how fearful must have been the
power of his enemies, although much
of his fighting was probably done
.with his own kind.
Professor Marsh believed that the
Triceratops was an animal in which
the development of defensive armor
beached a point where it became an
unbearable burden to the creature
Itself, interfering so much with its
powers of locomotion that it could no
longer successfully contend in the
struggle for existence, with animals
less cumbrously constructed. It was a
"Dreadnought' which attained a size
and weight so great that it could hard
ly turn around and was continually
getting itself entangled. Finally it dis
appeared from the earth, as knights of
the Middle Ages, with their heavy ar
mor, disappeared when gunpowder and
bullets took the place of spears, swords
and muscular arms on the battlefield.
A Dreadfal Spectacle.
But the battles with the smaller car
nivorous animals, attacking these huge,
unwieldy beasts like torpedo boats be
setting a giant battleship, were doubt
less spectacles still more dreadful to
look upon. The Immense spiked armor
covering the Tast back and the enor
mous tall, tells us. as plainly as if we
could look upon the scene itself, that
these enemies were accustomed to leap
upon the triceratops. seeking to bear
him down with their numbers, and to
rend his flanks in despite of their
horny covering. The tail, which in
Itself must mave weighed a ton or two,
when flung about in rage and agony
would have leveled small trees and
bushes with every stroke.
They had not sufficient intelligence
to adapt themselves to the changes
going on around them, as the Inland sea
dried up and animals, with more brains
In the head and less backbone, pressed
them to the 'wall in the struggle for
The earliest animals had nothing
that could properly be called a brain;
in the triceratops and its fellows the
brain was of increasing Importance,
but it took millions of years for nature
to develop in some of the successors of
these monsters, in the next age after
theirs, a brain one-eighth as large as
that of the modern horse.
In the next article of this series I
shall deal with the Stegosaurus. a
creature that was. in some ways, even
more extraordinary than the triceratops.

THE GREAT TILLY
By REV. THOMAS B. GREGORY.

WO hundred and eighty years ago

The 17th century is one of the most
Important periods in the history of the
human race. It was the century jf fate.
It settled things, and settled them for
all time. To no period of the human
story are tne poet's words so thor
oughly applicable as they are to that
tl: rilling oentury: "We are living, we
are dwelling, in a grand and awful
The holiest interests of humanity
were at stake. The principles upon
tihich all national healthy progress
depends were imperiled. It was indeed
an awful time, that 17th century.
At the head of the Progressives -stood
Gustavus Adolphus, justly regarded as
cne of the greatest and noblest figures
in history, while leading, on the Re
actioniststvas Tilly, one of the great
est of battle winners, cruel, remorse
Gustavus was fighting to make men
free: Tilly was fighting to keep men
in slavery. Gustavus was the champion
of progress, of mental liberty, of the
right to think, of the civilization of
culture, freedom and individuality,
-while Tilly's superb genius was being
used to perpetuate the tyranny of old
custom and authority, the privilege of
caste, the right of a few to dictate to
the many the way they should live and
Tilly was 36 years old, and already
a distinguished general, when (in 1S94)
Gustavus was born. Nobody though that
in the little Swedish babe humanity
was to find the destroyer of the Apol
lyon that was threatening to blot out
the rights and blast the hopes of the
ages. But it was even so.
In the Swede Tilly more than met h!s
iratch, and at the great battle of Brei
tenfeld. or Leipsic. went down before
him in ignominious and overwhelming
Fortunately for the world, a greater
than Tilly had come, and the future nf
humanity was secure. The hopes of the !
mind of the race was not to be throt
tled and degraded. Liberty was to live,
end flourish until she should bless all
men's lives with her golden fruit
It was in September, 1C31. that Tilly
and his imperial forces were beaten at
Breitenfsld, and the following spring
April, 1632 the great captain was mor
tally wounded while fleeing before
Gustavus and his Swedes at the battle
of the Lech.
Tilly's Jeath was no ilei to the hu
man race. He was one of humanity's
worst enemies. But for the terrible T!l
ly Bohemia would in all probability be
a free land today, as well as other
countries that might be mentioned. But
for the ravages of Tilly's brilliant but
savage genius much of the degradation
and misery under which Enropa still
groans might never have existed.
