SATL KDAY. JILY 7, EHUD MONSTKES OF THE BEEr. A few years au a a imuti r. cor-rc-puitiSiii iii Bi'i'canuieto the Uuwd eca M.rii'Ut & cften ilo-iribnl ( w UkU is uut a lug iLat the tn ature w it MTpetit ), a awn liy Capt. Au.tiu Cokjht and the oilin rs auI irrw of the Carii-ie Ca-t!e, theu Iwuml fur Melbourne- A description ami sketc h of the monster appeared in the Argus. On September It, at 10:) a. m, ac cording to the Examiner of San. Krau cLmxj, the third o Ili lit of the British steamship 'etor, then iu tlie Malacca, Straits, announced a ehual. Surprised to liud bhoalj iu such well-know n track, Capt. Webster watched the ob ject and found that it u In motion, keeping up the same speed a the hip and retaining about the tamo distance an when tirst seen. j "The shape of the creature,"" said the captain ( in an affidavit before Donald bpcuce. acting law secretary to the Danish supreme court at Shanghai ) "I would compare to that of a gigantic frog. The head, of pale, yellow Lh color, was about twelve feet iu length, ud sis feet of the crown was above the Witer. 1 tried in vain to in..U out tho mouth," he proceeds, "but the mouth may have been below water. The bead was Immediately connected with the body, without any indication of a ueck. The body, w as about forty five or fifty feet long and of an oval shape, perfectly smooth, but there may have been a flight ridge along the spine. The back rose somo livo feet above the auriace. Au iiiimouM) tail, fully 150 foct in lenght, rose a few inches above the water. This tall I saw distinctly from it Junction with tho body to its extremity. It seemed cylindrical, with a very slight taper, and I cstliuuto its diameter at four feet. The body and tad were marked w ith alternate bands or stripes, black and pale yellow in color. The stripes were distinct to the very extremity of the tall. I can not say if it had legs. It appeared to progress by means of au mululatory motion of (ho tall In vertical plane." Jt may lo remembered that In 1871) a monstrous cutllclish was encountered by two llshermau iu Conception J lay, Aowronudlnud. When attacked, the creature threw Us long arms across tho fishermen's boat, which it appeared to regard as a veritable object of prey but one or tho fishermen cut off the tentnelo w ith au ax, on which thoceph- alopod withdrew apparently regard nig tho iiiuu h action as unfair. This tentacle was twenty-five fivt Iu length; and as tho fisherman considered that It was cut off fully ten feot from the body tho entire length of tho tenluclo must have been about thirty-live feet. They estimated tho body at sixty foot In length and five foot 111 diameter. Iu lHtil the French war steamer Alcelor onconutered a monster cuttlo at sea about . f.'O nijlcs northeast of Teneritl'e. Tho crew got a nooso around tho body, bu unfortunately it slipped to tho tall, which It pulled off. Tho weight of this llttlo bit of tho creature was found to bo over forty pounds. It was estimated that tho body was filly leet long and tho wolght not less than 40(10 pounds. ino most remarkable account or a sea monster of this kind was that given by the captain and olllcers of tho Pau lino. It was sworno to on oath by Coorgo Drovar, tho captain ; Horatio Thompson, chief mute; John l.audells, second mate, and by tho steward and a seaman. On 8th duly wo observed 3 largo sperm whales, one of which was entirely gripped round the body by two turns of what appeared to bo a hugo serpent. The head and tail appeared to have a length beyond tho colls of about thirty feet, and a girth of olgth or nine feot. Tho creature turned tho whalo round and round for about fif teen minutes and then draggud It to tho bottom head first. rive days later the same creature, o asimilarouo, wasseou about loOvardi from tho ship, darting along tho gur- face, head and ueck being out of tho water, Duly Capt. Drevar and an or- unary seaman saw this. Hut a few miuutes Inter'tho captain, first mate, nua two seamen saw the monster raise its neck aud head above the water to hlgth which they estimated at slxt feet. Somo teu years ago Commandant Mlenouvo aud tho officers of the French man-of-war tho Lendro saw creaturo corresponding In appearane with the sea serpent traveling rapidly along, tuo head slightly raised abov 41. n I j u Huicr, nuu wiui a sort or mane streaming backward, while tho bnck oi a long body could bo seen tinder tho water. A creature exactly answer, lug to this description was seen bv Major James Harding, theu an officer In tlio king of Vlgis's army, passing within a few yards of his cauoo, nnd swimming toward a small island otit- sido Suva bay, known n the home of tho big snnko. Capt. tho Hon. l.eorge llopo or the British ship Fly, when in tho Gulf of California, tho sea being unusually calm and transparent, saw nt tho bottom a large marine animal with the head aud general figure of au alligator, but tho ueck much longer, aud w ith tour large paddles instead of logs. My own belief Is that somo, at any rate, of the stories relating to supposed sea serpents are to be explained by tho theory that there still exists creatures such as Capt. Hope described long necked reptilian forms akin to the Uolichodeirog of founer ages. Such creatures would present all the charac teristics recognized in the so-callod sea serpents- Their paddles would enable them to advance rapidly without per ceptible undulation ( which the sea ser- pcut has I w hi. U no could do ). u oh- rved to do, and tiiiil wqwiitine creature The gn .it objection to thi- vicw ha been llmt we tin .1 no fo-il plc-io-aur as In tertiary jtnita. isut this objection luej its force when note that the chimera ( a connecting link between the sharks and the stur geons) is closely related to form exi ting in the secondary era, while no trace of any of those forms Las Veen found in the intermediate strata down to our time. The chimera n-rtaiuly ex ists, for it has been captured. It is ex ceedingly rare, however, and up to the beginning of the present century all the objections urged against the sea serpent might have been urged against the chimera. i umber orFrrsons Die or Hjdrophobla. Wichita Kas,4ulv 2.5, A startling state of affairs exist In (jrceuwood county from the fear of rabid dogs. A gentleman who arrived from there last night says the whole country is terrorized. Xine persons Lave becti bitten and three have died after snffer- ing the most acute pain from hydropho bia. A mad dog went through tin country about a mouth ago and bit number of dogs aud cattle, aud th appeared to infect the whole country, Two weeks ago a dog came into the yard of Win, Jones and bit Mr. Jones and two of his children. Wednesday one of the children died In great agony and next day the father and the other child followed. A mad stone was circulated among the persons who had been bitten and it is hoped that no other deaths will occur, as theso per- sous were all bitten before tho Jones family. A wholesale slaughter of can lues is now going on. i I 2 Z.ltij C;-jarj Ul 1U i-lo!l (m ami after "siitriuy. Oct. 1st train will run a.- foih.w : 't rain No. I b-uvt Jr-riivUle daily at l:?J) p. m.

The New York Sun prints a cable gram from Fcrsia, which will make cheerful reading for tho progressive everywhere. Tho Shah has promul- gatud an edict promising aid In the construction of railroads, canals, tcle- gralips, aud other improvements that would promote tho revival of tho an- cieut glory, reuown, and prosperity of I osia. Ihe present Shah, Nasr-ed-Diu, Is au eulightoued despot, a progressive ruler, au acute observer of men aud maimers, a traveler who has seen tho chief countries of Christoudom, aud au author who, during his foreign adven lures, kept a diary that w as afterward published. His subjects belong to a race which, though It has fallen Into decay aud degenerated by admixtures, Is possessed of qualities of intelligence and enterprise that have given It prom Incncesion muuy Asiatic countries.

Memphis Avalanche Nubln'i Whistling Tree. In Nubia there aro groves of acacia trees extending over 100 miles siiiait. lho most conspicuous species," says Dr. Schwelnrurth, '-is the acacia fistula, Its Arable naino is 'snllar,' meaning Unto or pipe. From tho larvtu of in sects, which have worked their w av into tho inside, thelrlvory white shoots aro often distorted In form and swollen out at their base Into a globular, blad der like gall about one inch in dlainc- tor. After tho Insect has emerged from a circular hole, this thoru-llko shoot becomes a sort of musical lustra. incut, upon which the, wind, as it plays, produces tho regular sound of a fluto. Ou this account tho natives of tho Soudan namo tho acacia tho whist ling troo." Tim Coronado.
