There was gnfsa iu its month and food in its stomach. The fall must have hap pened more than 2.0(H) years ago. When Dr. Herz's party began the work of excavation the cold was such that a shed had to be erected. A fort night was occupied in thawing out the monster. N Eventually the huge animal was found complete, save a small piece of composite Mercedea-Lohne-Porsche, which will be the back and half trunk, which had been eaten by wolves.

The tongue of the mammoth is 10 inches long, and the tall, with the hair on.it, is more than 14 inches long. j AUTOS AT MONTE CARLO.
