A Giant Skeleton.
If any credence can be given to
the Calvert Central Texan, people
in that part of Texas are consider
ably exercised over the unearthing
of the skeleton of a giant near
Smiley's Crossing, on the Brazos.
It says that the kneecap, under jaw
or chin piece, and one tooth "were
brought to town, and after aiam
ination were pronounced by some to
be those of a human being. The
tooth measured from nine to eleven
inches in lengh and six inches across
the surface, the enamel of the tooth
being well preserved, and it having
two roets, and all presenting the
appearance of a human molar tooth.
The kneecap and chin were only
partially preserved, and were in the
possession of some gentlemen who
intend taking them to Alabama.
The kneecap could hardly be forced

A Newspaper Publisher Fazzled.
Last November a provincial newspa
per published a puzzle, and incautious
ly offered the value of a year s subscrip
tion to any person who sent in a correct
answer. If the offer had restricted siin
ply to subscribers, that would probably
have been the end of it; but the number
of people who are glad to get a paper for
nothing was scarcely to be estimated till
the other journals copied the paragraph;
and the one that made the original offer
now has on hand over one thousand aa-
wers to the puzzle, accompanied with re
quests to transmit the paper at once. If
ti cost nothing to print and post a
newspaper, this would be a capital way
to acquire a large list of readers; but it
does cost something, and now the pro
prietor finds it necessary to plead a
typographic error in his offer in order
to avoid his self imposed obligation to a
hungry public. As for that public, there
are some who will indulge in severe re
flections on the avidity with which peo
ple alwayaeeize.on something when they
get it for nothing, but see we in the ind
ent evidence that knowledge is univer
sally desired, and that the newspaper is
properly deemed the best diffuser of it.
The Iloosac Tunnel.
The Hoosac Tunnel, completed, is
four miles long, has cost the labor of an
immense number of men for many years
the expenditure of $13,000,000 and the
Bacrific of J 42 lives. . It is stated that it
will take a loaded -freight train forty
minutes to pass through it. Transport
ation companies and -shippers are re
presented to be eager to avail themselves
of its facilities for shortening the dis
tance between-New England cities and
the West,! and great expectations of in
crease of business .are based thereon. '
"The Great National Magazine,"
Enters upon a new year its ninth vol
ume) with the November number, with
broader plans and larger enterprise than
ever before, and with the ambition it has
maintained from the first, to demonstrate
itself to be the brightest, the strongest,
the most beautiful, and in ever way the
tlte best popular , Magazine in the vorld.
Uurine the year it will present such
marvels of illustrative engravings as no
popular magazine has ever been able to
publish. Its writers will be, as they
have been, the choice and chosen liter
ary men and women of America. Among
the attractive features of the year will be
a new serial novel.
"THE STORY OF SEVENOAKS,"
by J. G. Holland. A series of papers
rrom various pens on
"AMERICAN LIFE A SCENERY,"
including descriDtive rjatiers on Ameri
can cities, will open in January with a
narrative of Western Discovery and
Adventure, by Major Jrowell. whose de
scent of the Colorado is one of the most
famous exploits of Western travel. This
series will rival"! he iirent south pa
pers in the magnificence of ita illustra
tions, whilst possessing greater variety
and wider interest. Also another illus
trated series: '
A FARMER'S VACATION IN EU
ROPE," Six articles recounting the experience of
a well-known American farmer and en
gineer (Colonel Waring, of Ogden Farm,
Newport, R. I.) daring a tour through
some of the less frequented parts of
Western Europe, in the autumn of 18 6.
A series of papers of great interest on
FRENCH LITERATURE AND
by Albert Rhodes, with illustrations by
French Artists, will appear during the
"THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND."
Or, "The Modern Robinson Crusoe,"
Jules Verne's latest story, will be con
tinued, with its illustrations. A story,
by Saxe Holm.
begins in November, and will run for
three or four months. There will alo
be other Novelities and Shorter Stories
by leading American and English Story
Writers. The Magazine will continue
to hold its pre-eminence in this regard.
The Essays, Reviews, and Editorial Pa
pers will, as heretofore, employ the
ablest pens in both Europe and Ameri
ca. Home and Society, which has grown
in favor and in excellence from the first,
will be made more attractive, useful,
and valuable in its influence on the so
cial life and culture of the American
people. The Etchings will be still furth
er improved, and there will be greater
variety in this department.
Scribner's Monthly, by the verdict of
both the English and the American
press is "The Best of all the Monthlies."
The Eight Bound Volumes of Scrib-

Serial Stories, nearly One Hundred
Shorter Stories, more than a Thousand

torials and Reviews, embellished with
nearly Two Thousand Illustrations.
We have reprinted at great expense the
earlier volumes, and now offer a limited

the expense of reprinting in small edi

Of this book Charles Dudley Warner
"In the bound volume of St. Nicho

have a permanent addition to the liter

much literary and artistic talent co-operated
in the service of children. It is
a continual educator of their taste and
of their honor and courage. I do not
see how it can be made any better, and
if the children don't like it I think it is
time to begin to change the kind of
children in this country."

A Kepresentative and Champion of
American Art Taste !
Prospectus for 1875 Eighth Year.
The Art Journal of America,
A Magnificent Concept ion t wonderfully carried out .'
The necessity of a popular medium for the
representation of the productions of our great ar
tists, has always been recognized, and many at
tempts have been made to meet he want. The
successive failures which so invariably followed
each attempt in this country to establish an art
journal, did not piove the indiilereuce of the
people of Umerica to the claims of high art. So
soon as a proper appreciation of the want and
an ability to meet it were shown, the public at
once rallied with enthusiasm to its support, and
the result was a great artistic and commercial
triumph THE ALDISE:
TUE ALDINE, while issued with all the reg
earity, has none ot the temporary or timely in
terest characteristic of ordinary periodicals. It
is an elegant miscellany of pure, light and grace
ful literature; and a collection of pictures, the
rarest specimens of artistic skill, in black and
white. Ah hough each succeeding number af
ifords a Iresh pleasure to its friends, the real val
ue and beauty of THE ALDINE will be most
appreciated after it has been bound up at the
close of the year. While other publications may
claim superior cheapness, as compared with ri
vals of a similar class, TUE ALDINE is a unique
and original conception alone and unapproach
ed absolutely without competition in price or
character. The possessor of a complete volume
cannot duplicate the quantity of fine paper and
engravings in any other shape or number of vol
umes or ten timet its cntt; and then, there are the
The national feature of TIIE ALDINE roust
be taken in no narrow sense. True art is cos
mopolitan. While THE ALDINE is a strictly
American institution, it does not confine itself
entirely to the reproduction of native art taste,
one that will discriminate only on grounds of
intrinsic merit. Thus, while placing before the
patrons of THE ALDINE, aa a leading charac
teristic, the productions of the most noted Amer
ican aitists, attention will always be civen to
specimens from foreign masters, giving subscri
ber. an tne pleasure ana instruction obtainable

The artistic illustration of American scenerv,

ieature, anu iib magmncent piates are oi a size
more appropriate to the satisfactory treatment
of details than can be afforded by any inferior
page. j. ne juaicious interposition oi landscape,
marine, figure, and animal subiects. sustain an
unabated interest, impossible where the scope
of the work confines the artist too closely t a
sidgle style of t-ubject. The literature at THE
AisUij,!:. is a ugnt ana graceiui accompaniment,
worthy of the artistic features, with only such
technical disquisitions as do not interfere with
the popular interest of the work.
