Not many j ear ago the country between Wood Mountain ami t'vnrcst Hill swarmed with buffaloes. Now their skulls whitcn lug on the plain and tho deep worn paths which traverse the prairie in every direction are the ouly evi dences of'thcir former existence. Lately, however, vast herds from the north have been passing south ward, aud the Sioux are laying in abundant rations. Foxes, wolves, badgers and mink teem both m these hills and Wood Mountain and muxkratt aro very abuudaut iu the' awaiups and rivers. On the prairie the Jhtle gopher or ground tnulrrel and mole are found in lotiuloiis colonies, riairie cuicK- ens, ducks aud geese, cranes, bit- crus, plover, taud-pipors, tnlpe, and other warders, at well as pig- eous, blackbirds aud larks, are found everywhere, aud servo to e en ti the wolf iroiu the door of Sitting Bull' lodgo. Wooded belts arc scattered throughout the couutry. The horbaga is clean at a welMiaven lawn, and clumps of aspen and poplar abound. Be tween the Cactus Pluiu aud Wood Mountain the Great Salt Plain, that begins Just west of Touch wood Hills, tceiut to renew itself. Hundreds of small laket of saline water, without any visible outlet, are to bo found, and theto are fre quented by wild fowl iu countless flocks. Sitting Bull has ammuni tion enough to keep hit camp tup tilled with the luxuries of the sea- lion, his braves boiug wonderfully expert iu staking the cuuri or prairie deer.

Tho first is mat ir. once stood before the temple at Ileliopo lis iu which Mo.cs is said have be come learned in all tho wisdom of llie Egyptian!, and tho second is that it wat removed from Its original site to Alexandria, Egypt, . . .. .1.- during tno reign oi i jmif Tiberius, under whose autnonty Jesus was crucified. It was also at Alexandria that a great part or the struglo between pagan philos onhv and the new religion wat fought : to that it scemt that this j obelisk hat been fated at lean in the past to atand at pointt which are of peculiar religiout interett.
