and Garfield by the Great Artist.
Among the wonders f nature none are of
greater interest than those strange resem
blances la natural formations to human face
and figures, as well as ro other forms, which
are found In various parts of the world.
One of the most tni iful of these curiosi
ties is found in the Mi an moth cave of Ken
tucky, which contains many others which
have boon more frequently described.
This is the "Last Rose f Summer," a mag
nificent formation in the center ceiling of
one of the largest chambers, which is abso
lutely porfect in its sha ia In size it Is about
eight feet in diameter, of pure white, with
bud, flower and leaf, and, in the glare of
torches, sparkling like countless diamonds.
Many similar stalactih s are found in other
parts of the cave In one room the entire
umg is thickly studded with the most
graceful formations ol ilowors, all of the
most dazzling white.
THK HONSTEU OP BEAR LACK.
Although not, btrictly speaking, a natural
formation, the woudorf ul "monstor of Bear
lake," in tho Rocky mountains, may be
spoken of in this counectiou. This is the pet
rifled form of what wiis evidently once an
immense sea mouster. It died on a high
plateau, m a position giving riso to a theory
among aiitiquurit tliat iu resting place was
once a gvcat shoal, and that the antediluvian
leviathan flourished anc perished on the sur
face as the water reced!. The petrifaction
is perfoct, and it is estii:iatcd to weigh about
ton tons. A geologist says:
"It presents a dull appearance, the head
and body of a hump b u ked whale, and the
oxtremit ies extend Into feelers and antenna
like the polypus or do-i tish, with the ex
ception that evidently, during life, they were
lined with a hard and tiony substance. The
eyes are sot in each side of the head, which is
flat and oblong, and are twenty-four inches
apart. Tho mouth is armed with triple rows
ot teeth, sharp in front, but underneath and
well in the jaw are turned into grinders.
euppod by a solid otsootis formation, running
oacii irom the widest portion of the head."
The length of this singular relic of an un
known age has not bee n doterminod, but as
the body blends into t ie tail it tapers to a
small size, so that, making due allowances,
the entire weight would not bo far from that
stated. This mouster .s, beyond doubt, the
descendant or tbe denizens of the mighty
ocean that once submerged this region.

Any mention of "great stone faces" would
be incomplete without some reference to tbe
famous "Old Man of tbe Mountain" ot the
White Mountains, New Hampshire, which is
unquestionably the grea test curiosity of the
kind in existence. No Cner description t
been given of this natural sculpture than

THE ANIMAL KINGDOM.
Requirements and Emotions Alike Easily
Detected by Study.
Tho physical expressions which the animals
employ to manifest their passions, require
ments, distresses and emotions, are precisely
similar to mon'a They caress with their lips
and limbs, show resentment by facial distor
tion, bites and kicks, and fear by a tremor;
they leap with joy, loll with thirst, lag with
fatigue, and attack for revengo ami reprisal
Jven fishes, with their poor, deficient bodies,
are able to manifest many mental operations
in a manner intelligible to man as well as 4b
each other. There is no end to authenticated
instances of animal sagacity, indicating pre
meditation, plan, purpose, souse of duty, pru
dence, gratitude, method, judgment.
Animals memorize. They cherish malice,
they dream in their sleep, they can count,
they have a sense of injustice, a consciousness
of error, and notions of forgiveness and
reparation. I have seen a brute of a
man requite the clumsy caress of
Jus - horse by a thumping blow on
the nose. HU raprcme . intelligence
did not comprehend the animal's action, for
sooth, Now some men get vexed if they are
not readily understood. Did the horse show
temper-this noble animal whom Job repre
sents as imbued with the spirit of the tem
pest f Did he even resent the outracef Not
by retaliation, although he plainly indicated
bis keen sense of the indignity. What may
we suppose his emotions to have been at treat
ment so regardless and unprovoked) Yet he
presently forgave all. Do not say that he
forgot, for at all times afterward he shrank
with apprehension when his master ap
proached. Oh, the gentleness, forbearance
and long suffering of the brutes, who oft
times grieve iu silencespeechless and unable
to utter protest or complaint.
Animals meditate. Dogs have boon seen
to sit in a fit of abstractiou, so that no one
could engage their attention, and presently
start ou with an impetus which showed there
was a montAl impulse behind it That was a
keen stmse of finesse displayed by the New

that he could jump in magnanimously to the

handful of candy which he anticipated the
grateful parents would bestow. He repeated
tbe trick so often that he fell Into suspicion
and disgrace, but his method showed not only
a conception of the efficacy of a virtuous act
and its logical recompense, but the advan

Shot by HU Own Gnu Trap.
Bears were so numerous and troublesome
when New England was first settled that a
war of extermination was of necessity car
ried on against them. Mr. Wlnthrop Dur-
gln, a pioneer of banbornton, N. H., had a
most unfortunate experience with bear traps.
He had set three gun traps for bears. Next
morning he heard one of the guns, and went
to see if he had caught a bear.
As he approached the traps he saw a bear
struggling near one of them. He started to
run, fearing the bear might make its escape.
In his eagerness be quite forgot about the
traps between himself and his coveted game.
Mr. Durgln passed one trap in safety, but In
crossing tbe second he stopped on the spring,
the gun was discharged and the shot entered
his thigh. lie sank to the ground, half faint
ing, and all thought of the bear for the mo
ment loft his mind.
Bruin, despite a broken leg, was meantime
slowly making off to tbe woods. Mr. Dur
gln soon saw this, and reaching for his gun,
raised himself painfully, took aim, fired and
killed the bear. He then nred his gun sev
eral hoping to bring assistance to him
self, but no one came.
He lay for some hours, and then, despair
ing of help, crawled home. His wound
proved so serious that amputation was neces
sary. "That was a dear bear," be used to say
"Not many men give a leg for a bear."
Can a brave soldier carry coolness In battle
to tbe point of affectation? An incident told
of the French Gen. Custlne and his aide-da-camp,
Baraguay d'liilliers, seems to prove
that this may be possible.
During a battle, Baraguay d'Hilliers was
reading a dispatch to the general, holding the
letter with both hands, when a ball passed
between his two hands and cut a hole straight
through the letter.
The aide-de-camp paid no attention to the
bullet, but paused in his reading, and looked
closely at the riddled page.
"Go on, go on I" said the general
"I beg pardon, general," said Baraguay
d'Hilliers, "but a word seems to have been
blotted out here. Well, I will go on with
This story is not unlike one told, with what
truth we do not know, of a western captain
in the American civil war, who, after an en
gagement, had seated himself under a tree
and was smoking a pipe when a stray bullet
knocked off the bowl of the pipe, leaving tbe
stem in his mouth. He continued to puff for
a moment, and then said to his orderly:
"This pipe draws too well, Robinson; I
wish yon would bring me a fresh one."
