There is no more mysterious pre-historic
monument in Grxrut Britain than the won
derful fcroup of "Handing stonps" which
form so conspicuous an object upon Salis
bury plain. Volumes have been written
as to the ape and purpose of this monu
ment, but absolutely nothing is certainly
known. It was encted in an ape and by
peoples that have paused entirely cut of
human memory. The popular tradition
considers Stonehenije to Ik? a temple of the
ani ient Druids, but there is no historical
basis for the belief; and, on the other hand,
there is nothing to show that it might not
have been such a vmple. Only a portion
of the stones are standing in their original

perhaps, the s.inct i.-iry ol tiie temple. The

Dr. C. C. Abbott says that in experiment
ing on the -rntel igenee of birds he placed a
number of pieces of woolen yarn red, yel
low, preen, purple and pray in color near
a tree in which a coupleof Baltimore orioles
were building tl i-ir nest. The pieces were
all exactly alike except in color. There
was an equal namlier of threads in each
color, the re; ; id yellow being purposely
placed on top The birds chose only the
duller colors. l i-iing all of the pray and a
few threads ot tie pnrple when the nest
was nearly done Not a single thread of
the red or brig'.t yellow was touched, the
birds seeming t insti:irtiely know that
such loud colors would make t heirdomicile
too conspicuous Again he experimented
by girdling the branches upon which nests
were located, ci using the leaves to shrivel
nnd blow away Although they had laid
their eggs the iiirds luvariably left their
nests. If the lu sts contained young when
the leaves dried up, notwithstanding the
exposure, they would fee l the little ones

An Old Hndson B Port.
Fort Ellice, on the Assiniboin, is a Hud
son bay post nearly as old as Fort Garry.
The place, with the land connected, has
been, sold to a man named Whoeler. The
ancient trading post is not farfrom Qn'Ap
pelle river. The fort, the buildings and
the stockade appear to have been erected
when every precaution to insure safety
from dangerous bands of Indians was a
necessity. In those days goods were deliv
ered to the Indians from an aperture in
the wall and not from acounter. The fort,
being at the head of river navigation, was
once a very important point, and some
times from 300 to 500 carts would start out
from Fort Kllice at one time with supplies
for stations in the far west.
The old roads on the prairie over which
these caravans moved in the then un
settled wilderness can still le traced by
the deep ruts cut in the ground by the
wheels ot the carts. Sometimes along
these ancient pathways a few graves can
still be noticed, perhaps marking the spot
where some encounter with hostile Indiaus
took place. Many of Louis Riel's relatives
still live near Fort Kllice. Had the Cana
dian Pacific railway been constructed on
the original -survey, north of the Assini
boin, it wns expected that what is nowthe
town of Brandon would have been at or
near Fort, F.liice. Pilot Mound Sentinel.
