MINI? IN ANIMALS.
Evidocos of Somotling More ThbMi
Instinct in the Lower Orders.
I4om the Chicajo Times.
Dr. Jewell, of Evanston, delivered
a lecture on "Mind in the Lower
Animals" in the Church of the Ro
deemer, corner of Washington and
Sangaion streets, last evening.
le entered into a long and learned
disquisitioin on the difference exist,
ing betwen mind and body. The
former was ininaterial, the latter
niateritil What in moan was called
intellect, in tho insect or the brute
is called instinct. The doctor comn,
pared the two and could see no
great difference, except as regarded
the physical formation and the mode
of action or expression. Had the
lower animals mind ? If they had
not they possessed something so near
akin to the quality that it might be
easily mistaken for it. In the task
of proving mind in the lower ani
nals, the difficulty would not bo in
finding examples by which to illus -
trate, but in making a selection from
a mass of testimony, showing intel- I
lect in the insect and brute creation,
absolutely unwieldly. He related
instances of this nature in his own
experience and that of others.
For example, a black beetle on
the highway, rolling its ball along,
and finding it too heavy, going for a
brother beetle to help it on with its
load in which it was successful.
Ants moving out to raid on other
ants and reduce them to slavery, on
the human principle, fighting bat
tlos, stealing eggs, and doing other
things of a naughty but highly intel
lectual character. Bees were an
other smart race of insects. They
sometimes went so far as to buil
fortilications of wax to protect the
hiyes from invasion, rendering the
entrance a kind of Pass of Thor
mopylin which could be defended by
half a dozen good stingers against
hundreds of "proud invad
ers." He had road of an instance
where a naturalist transported bees
to o, tropical island, where flowers
bloomed all the year round, hoping
that they would work without
intermission. Instead of doing so,
discovering after a year's residence;
honey for winter use, they gave
themselves up to idleness and luxury,
ceasing to be profitable. How could
that be accounted for if bees had no
mind ? Moro blind "instinct" could
never have taught them so much
philosophy.
Dogs, too, were wonderfully
smart in their way. He told some
high-spiced anecdotes of canine
courage and sagacity. Cats had
been known to do very bright things
and other beasts, horses, mulos,
cows, sheep, goats, etc., were more
or less given to thinking for them
selves. Another belief lie had was
that insects and animals had t ape
cies of language well understood by
them. Whether it was oral or pan
tomimic madeno difference; they had
a i)et hod of signaling each other and
making their wants known, From
all this, the Dootor argued, Insects
and bruites are possesased of -minds
of no common order.
6o0mo of Dr, Jewell's anecdotes
were so comical anid so spicily told
that the audience wore in constant
good humor, although it mnust be
confessed a look of skepticism per
vadod the faces of matny of theolisten..
ers. H-owever, Dr. Jewell made
himself interesting if lho did noth
ing more.
A young lady bet a young man a
kiss that Tilden would be elected-..
he to pay if Tilden won, and she to
pay if Hayes wvas elected, On the
morning of the 8th of November he
called and paid the debt ; on the 9th
he called and took it bacit. That
evening she paid the debt, Next
morning sihe took it back and he
paidI ; then she paid and he paid,
anid so they hayo leen kept busy
by the contradictoxry dispatches
ever' since, and bo0th declare their
willingnosa and ability to hold out
uintil Congress decidos the question.

A Waddling Match.
From the New York World.
The "Equostrain C nes and:Field
Sports" at tle Hippodrome were en
livened last evening by a fat men'a
foot race, open tq anybody capable
of turning 200 pounds, and merci
fully-or unmeoreifully---separated
ito th Vo ioats. 'T'lie heavy-footed
having been weighed, aid having
stripped down close tq their pillowy
pro portions, ambled forth ponder
ously upon the track. First came
Joseph Dearsloy, who had no belly
to speak of, but who made up 224
poundls by flabbiness disposed over
a considerable ongtI and breadth;
lie had the pole, James Iuber
cane next-if anything may be
intimated of James Huber. Esti
mating from his front extremity he
had ia start of one quarter of the
track, but his baok was plumb with
the igeraitch, and he promised he
youhl start from that side. - He
weighed 310 pounds, and if lie had
lain down would have been a tall
man. : atrick Tansey, facetiously
called Gin-and-Bitters by the starter
followed with 263 poutnds, and after
him John Hoff, with 229 pounds,
of stomiiach rolled up liko a suet
pudding in a strained and distended
undershirt. There were several
others also, among them Dan
IReagan, who was not fat at all, but
who had bono and muscle enough to
turn the scale at 215 pounds. Sev,
oral who did not wigh 200 pounds
with their ypreoats were ignomini
ously dismissed.
With the word "Go" each lifted
up his stomach with both hands and
moved. Jans Huber was by all
odds the most attractive pedestrian,
and was encouraged and hounded
by the entire Hippodrome, He
made m re exertion than afl the
othors combined, but, owing to the
cua~ntity of him, he had~ only

But the lean umpire was frm, and

'They move, they movel"
Hoff had made up his mind to run
fast this time and get around three
Aimes before there should be any
