In the per m of Profeaeor Gamier there
has at last -onie forward a scientific gen
tleman of prominence who is willing to
Make his lir ifessional reputation on his
ability toesti blish oral communication be
tween man ,md monkeys. What do the
monkeys thi lk of Professor Gamier and
his scheme? At first the difficulty of ob
taining an t npre jo diced answer to this
question seen ed insuperable.
Tpon inquiry it was found that Professor
Garnier had I pparently cast the glamor of
his learning and enthusiasm over every
available authority on the monkey side of
the subject. Finally a way out of the dif
ficulty was suggested by a gentleman who
is himself sot lething of a naturalist, hav
ing made a m re or less successful attempt
to consolidate the interests of histrionism
"Why," sah he, '-there is Professor Con
rad's educate. 1 sacred baboon, Professor
Gamier has overlooked him. I'm sure."
Professor Co iraddcvlatvd that hissacred
baboon was the most highly educated,
monkey in Christendom, and that they
frequently held long conversations with
"He'll know all about it," said Professor
Conrad. "Come along and I'll introduce
The sacred baboon bowed gravely and
remarked something in a low tone to the
"He says it's a fine evening." said the
professor, u hoi cted as Interpreter throoga-
out the intervi. w.
"Hut. profess IT, your sacred monkey has
a tail a long one. He can hardly lie up to
this subject. He is not an anthropoid ape."
HOW MAX CAME TO P.E.
"Oh, I see." viid Professor Conrad.
"That's one Of. me. Suppose we leave it
to Moses." And the professor Jabbered
something in the ear of the sacred ape
that appeared, to make the latter very
"He wants to now," explained the pro
fessor, "whethei you write shorthand?-'
"Certainly; but why?"
"Moses says h reputation and position
are such that h can't afford to lie mis
quoted." From the chee -fill nature of the jablier
ing which enfcued it appeared that the pro
fessor and the sacred ape were congratu
lating each other on "having one" on t he
representative of the great public. Pres
ently, however, t be latter assumed a severe
expression of countenance, and through
his interpreter made the following State
"That anthropoid ape theory is all hum
bug. I demonstrated that long ago with
my bareback somersault act. Shsw me
the anthropoid ape that can do that trick,
will you'' That -hows what idiotic rub
bish yonr scientists are always talking and
writing. You listen carefully tor two min
utcs and you'll know more than all the
scientists put tog tlur."
"How i it. t un." Moses was asked,
"that -o many fine specimens of the ape
family have no in ire sign of a tail than a
"It is because,' Moses went on without
the slightest hesitation, "of the inordinate
vanity of a tamil of half witted monkeys,
who bit off each i ther's tails in infancy for
a couple of centuries, until nature gave up
the struggle and t una d them out tailless."
"Why did tin y lothisf"
"Because they t tonght it completed their
resemblance to e me other weakminded
branch of our fa nily, calling themselves
'men.' that broke off from the main stem
about that time. From that day to this
we haven't bothend ourselves much alioiit
the fate of cil her of them. As for the au
thor anthropoid : pe, as you call him- he
isn't recognised in our best society at all."
Moses was asked to statt at almut what
period Of tin- earth's history these two un
worthy branches of the ape family tail
less monkey and nan -broke away from
parental control. Moses rattled off some
thing with an air i f treat wisdom, and the
nature of bis ilisci urse seemed to puzzle
Professor Conrad i ot a little.
"He says," said lie profe-sor. "that this
thing happened alioat 900,090 years before
the great flood of frozen water, but I'm
blest if 1 know what that means."
Here, indeed, wa a valuable piece of in
formation. I'p to the present time scien
tists have been utterly unable to deter
mine, with any sort of accuracy, what geo
logical epoch witnessed the origin of man.
"Why, professor, his is most important,
if true. By the 'I ood of frozen water,'
Moses unquestiooa lj means the glacial
overflow. Three h mdred thousand years
farther beck weald bring as into the be
ginning of the miocene jieriod. Our an
cestors then were contemporaneous with
the extinct phinacodus. They tracked the
terrrible t'oryphodi n to his lair, and made
him pay tribute of oil lor the rude lamps
of their cave dwellings, They but never
mind. It. is very interesting. He good
enough to ask Moses hi- opinion as to
whether Professor iarnier will be able to
reduce thi- language of monkeys to a
"He probably will "answered the sacred
baboon, with a gesture of Indifference,
"and when he succeeds yourown language
and your libraries will be doomed."
"How so! Why, the very moment you
become familiar with our language you
begin to understand our intellectual supe
riority. We have ni need of written lan
guage, for the reason that our memories,
which are natural a id onpampered with
artificial aids, are inf dlible."

"But. dear, respected Mr. Moses, the evi
dences of our civiliz. tion? Our steam en
gines, our electrical ontrivances all the
wonderful inventions of man what have
you to say about them?"
"Poppycock." said the sacred ape.
"Twiddle twaddle," and he spat contempt
uously through the b..rs of his cage.
"But our cities, our institutions, our
wealth, our power w lat of these?"
"They are all in our eye," said the
sacred ape composedly; "phantasms im
ages of the brain. You are already on the
brink of dest ruction. Your accumulations
of wealth will compass your overthrow,
and then you will lie glad to come back to
your parent stem back to us, who possess
all wisdom, all bappin -ss. all philosophy."
"Prove what you sa? . Bar. Moses. Prove
it, if you can:"
"Very wi ll, said the sacred ape, signify
ing by a yawn that tie. interview was oven
"very well: cast your e res alxiut you as you
leave by the stage entr nice''
It was only too true. Professor Gamier
is respect f ally requested to Iiear in mind
that i. uniformed oha lpies stood in line,
with their backs to the curbstone, living,
all but speaking, pro fs that the sacred
ajie knew what he w at talking about.
