New Bone Cavern fi Ireland.-The
bone cave at Shandon, near Dungarvan,
Iin the conuty of Waterford, accidently
discovered some twenty years ago, was
the first Irish i produced aln
limal remalins belonging to the pleisto
cono period. .in it wore found remaims
of the mammoth horse, bear. wolf and
reindeer. Another cave hias recently
been found near Cappoquin, at a dis
tance of abont seven miles from the
Shndon cave. This new cavern is of
large size, and appears to have Uoan oc
cupied at, a very remote perlod by bears,
portions of whose skeletons are to be
met with on the lower deposits of the
floor ; but time chief interest In this dis
covery rests In the fact that renial is of
the great Irish elk (Megacrros Hiberni
cus ) were found in it, inl conjunction
with the bones of other (leer and of
bears, and along with a polished green
stone colt ( neolithic ) and soveral stone
ru bbers. There were also some remairk
able and strong evidences met with of
tle association of man witlh the great
Irish elk, for Professor Leith Adtams,
in whose prescuee these renains were
taken outof the cave, and by whom they
were packed up for further observation,
says that imacy of the hones of the neg
aceros were evidently split for their
imarrow, and several elk cannion-bones
were foun d ashiloned hito awls and
gauges, showing that was not only col

So1nethming About Sharka.
A gentlemain residling in Saugertles,
N. Y., who followed the sea In the
whaling business for ltany years, says
the Impression many people have that
a shark can bite a iman's limb off or bite
hin in two Is erroneous Tlie shark's
teoth are in layers or rows. and are
smtall, saw edgetid, thin and sharp as ra
zors, but very brittle, so much so that
the moment they bite on any hard sub
stance thy break oil', reidering it tit
terly inmpossible for them to bito a bone
in two. Th re of these rows of teeth,
are ordinarily [i use, and whoat broken
are naturally replacod( by those further
back In the inouth g:owing out. sitillar
to nails in the iuman hand or foot.
This gentleman also says that lie has
seen hundreds of what Is known as
the gray shark, near the Soclety Islands
in the South Pacillo Ocean, and has
known them to attack a whale in scores
with a porfectly terrible ferocity, !ash
luig at ani catlIhing hold of the cars
and keel of thoe boat with lightning
like rapidity anid with such force as to
throw the oarsmen froi their seats,
aid in several Instances nearly throw
ing the boat steerer overboard. The
oars and keel of the boat when oxamitn.
ed afterward were found full of pieces
of their teeth. While the above may
be fast, yet it Is undenlably true that
thcru are species of sharks which do
attack and seriously Injure If ilot kill
htinan beings. A gentleman of King
stoni, N. Y., who as an oillcer In the
navy has voyaged aro'iid the world,
relates how, in Pensacola Iarbor, lie
saw a "tiger shark" seize a tian-who
wias one of the crew of the ship of
which the gentlenan was an oilcer
and as q(tiek as thotight snap off his
leg, and It was with diil1aulty the
tuslortunlate sailor was rescued. It was
as much as a iman's life ,was wortl to
ventiltre Into the Water at that point, as
the "Llgers," fromn lftec:1 to twelIty
feet long, were umicrous and ferocious,
and never hesitated to attack a inman
who cnme within reach.
