The Game Animals of Colorado and the Manner of Hunting Them. T. The Denver (Col.) Tribune says : Two old residents, among (he earliest or our early-comers, have prepared a paper, in which is given an account ol oil the resources and attrac tions of our Terrilory, from a sportsman's standard. Not on ly are all the game animals "recorded," hut other inielh gence given that renders the report as valuable aa it is in teresting. We . take great pleasure in presenting this pa per to the readers of the Tri bune. The game of Colorado con fists of buffalo, elk, black and white-tailed deer, . mountain sheep, anlelope,cinamon,lilack, and grizzly bear, wild turkeys, sage hen, blue or mountain grouse, willow or pin tai grouse, ptarmagln or mountain quail, ducks of all kinds except canvas-back, geese and brandt, swan, curlew of several varie ups; and in the spring and fall plover, for a few days, as tliey migrate nonh and south. We have also a ew California and Slate quail imported lor breed ig purposes. The lollowing fur-bearing an imals are numerous: beaver, oiler, mink, marten, weasel; red, gray, black, and silver uray lex, besides many vari lies i hut aie supposed to be a rrt68 of the different distinct species; aiso a very small am mal ol the lot kind, known here as the swift, the large gray and while timber wolf, white and gray coyote, and black prairie wolf, panther or calilor nia lion, lynx, wolvereen, cata mo'int, and wildcat, badger, skunk, groundhog or wood chuck, and other minor species Success in either hunting or trapping depends more here than elsewhere upon the expe rience of the person engaged in it, and his knowledge of the country, lor the reason that game is not generally distrib uted throughout lh Territory but certain species are con fined to certain localities. No stranger need expect much success unless accompanied by an experienced guide Remarkable bags are some times made, but create little remark here. It is nothing un common for two hunters load a large freight wagon with deer, antelope, or buffalo, in day or two after reaching the hunting grounds. Grouse an such gtme may be killed at the rate of four or five dozen a day to the gun, provided the bun ter has the time and patience lo hunt up the locality. The larger animals are very extensively hunted during the season for both local and for eign markets. It is estimated that not less than 200,009 buf falo were slaughtered for their bides alone last year, and long as the price of jUns make a profitable business, and the buffalo remain, this waste and destruction will go on. The good hunting grounds are numerous. Duck,geese,eto., may be found very close about Denver. Willow grouse are widely distributed, and mav be found in roost any direction from town by traveling from ton to twenty miles. The.v aV much more difficult to cap ure, and a far better bird than he prairie chicken of the States, and are not found in the mountains at all, while the blue or mountain grouse are onlv found in the mountains, i and are the finest eating bird f the grouse kind, and nff r poor snort to any except pot shooters." they being exces sively tame. Ptarmagin are only found verv close to th nowy ranee, and are very good or the table, but mislit as well be killpd with a club as shot uffalo are sometimes foun'l within thirty miles of town, but snally a ride of from fiftv to wo hundred miles east, either via. the Union racihc or the Kansas Pacific Railway, will be necessary for any great suc cess. Antelope are often found within ten miles of this place, but are more plenty as you eave civilization behind in either direction. White-tail eer are not plenty. They are only occasionally killed along he water courses and in the ow hill country some thirty o fifty miles to the east, and sev enty miles from here. Black ail deer confine themselves to he mountainous regions, ex cept when Bevere storms pre vail; they then come to. .the foot hills, where they may be illed in quantities. They af ford fine sport, whether in mountain or valley, are very numerous, and are often hunt ed within twenty miles of own. Dear are distributed throughout the entire monn lam country. Mountain Bheep are very seldom killed, except on the high mountains, and as far distant as the Rocky Moun tains extend. Elk are found most numerous in the Middle and North Forks, from seventy to oue hundred miles distant, and on the Laramie Plin8,an) urlher west along the line of the Union Pacific Railway tor 300 or 400 miles from Chey enne, especially in the vicinity of Fort Steel, and as far north as' the Wind River Mountains and Montana Terrilory. Very lew dogs of pure blood or flue breed are owned here. Some pointers and sellers of doubtful blood, und occasion ally a grey or stag, hound are kept lor running down wound ed game; but no fox hounds are in (he country, nor could they be used to any advantage on account of the prickly pear, which would cripple them in an hour's run. so While in every State laws are multiplied indefinitely pro vidiug for the punishment oi delaulters aud officers proved recreant to their trust, Mary land has eone to the root of the matter, and besides pro viding laws lor the punishmeu of lapses in office, has also ta ken measures to prevent their occurience. cue has acted upon the theory that it is easier lo prevent tlian to cure, iiy law each officer in arrears iu his accouut thirty days betore election must furnish an ac count ot arrearages, or the Comptroller advertises him in the newspaper as a defaulter, For the last two weeks the Maryland papers have been lull of such notices, and a start ling amount ot official negli gence or wrong doing has beei exuosed. There are 200 offi cialu short in their account with an aggregate deficiency ot $350,000. The law works well in keeping defaulters from re eleotion, lor out or 19 onlv 13 are now in office. Cincinnati Times. A Wonderful Discovery. The astounding discoveries made by Professoj Ferrier re- pecting the possibilities in the hands of scientists in re gard to the manipulation of the uman brain have been widely ommenled on by the public ress. The possibilities lying within the scope ol Professor Ferrier's iscoverles are amazing, the rofessor, it will be remember ed, puts animals under the in- uenceof chloroform; the skull is then removed and the brain exposed; he then takes an elertric battery, and by proper pplication of the positive and egfttive electrodes npon var ious parts of the brain produc es the most astounding effects. The limbs of the animal are moved for instance; the animal s made to emit various sounds; t is made to change the ex pression ot its tace; and, in fact, every variety of action is produced. The result of these extraordinary discoveries n practically to restore phrenol ogy to its proper place in the ranks of sciences. This is ad mitted by Dr. Carpenter, the great physiologist, who has heretofore been so strong an opponent of phrenology. These facts not only settle the old dictum "the brain is the or gan of the mind," and, vice ver sa, that the mind acts only through the brain but it shows that the brain is the seat of human emotic n, and of all sensorial and rootorial capacity We can not move any more han we can think without the brain. In the pr3sence ot the audience, the Professor w able to tell what effects would follow when a particular part of the brain was touched; and, moreover, when hU assistant caused various movements of he animals, the Pro'eaor could tell what was being done with the brain. It is claimed that the Prnfes or has niscoverea a way ot stimulating the brain by elf! tricity without removine th skull, and that bv an exterior manipulation he, knowing thp positions of the various organs haa teen enabled tomateriallv change the characters of peo ple who corne to him aa pa tients. His power is specially marked in cases of deprvd nlimentivpnpss. especially in dipomani, the alcoholic thirst Bv the application of electric ity o that portion of the brain which comprehends the aM- mentive faculties and attend to eating and drinking, the dis eased longine is made to cease, and by a conre of oonMnned application thei drunkard's de praved appetite is not only cured, bnt he acquires an in tense aversion for all kinds of alcoholic stimulants, Peopl of extreme irritability, of great cotnhativeneBs and destructive ness, are soothed bv the appli cation of electricity so that the irritability disappears, and ihy become amiable and agreeable companions. Women who are scolds and men who are fierce and brutal in temperament, persons who are afflicted wilh melancholia, or excessive cau tion, or extreme nervousness are all susceptible ot cure nn der these strange methods. Pure Iron. Absolutely pure iron is said to have been produced by a Rassian chemist by means of the galvanic batterv. During the process a lsrge quantity of hydrogen was disengaged from the ordinary iron used. The pure iron is a silver-white met al very malleable and ductile and so soft as to be readily cot with a pair of scissors. It is verv different from iron which has heretofore been supposed to be pure. It oudizes very very rapidly, and water is de composed by it by the rapid gb5C"V"-i ol oxygon. ADVERTISING TERMS.

What a Naval Cadet Has to Pass Through. The following extract from a letter written to his parents by Master Geo. F. Orm?by of Xenia. who was recently an. - r pointed to a naval csdetship will convey to any of our boy readers whose ambition would lead them into the navy, infor mation of the 6tringent ordeal through which they will be re quired to pass before being as signed permanent quarters as a cadet io the naval academy at Annapoli: Octibeb 2. I have paemd the examinations successfully. I do not j et know my per centj hut infer that I stood pretty well, as my name was one of the first sent in. First came the physical ex amination. Being ushered be fore the examining surgeons my height, breadth, weight, color of eyes, hair and com plexion, were taken down. Then I hopped across the room on one foot, then on the otherj then a damp cloth was laid on my breast, and Hu n I was directed to take long breaths, to see if my chest was sound; then it was spread over my throat. And I was told to breatl e quicklv, as if r nn'nf, then I was bidden to wheel around on one foot, and then on the other, to see if I had stiff joints; then I reached mr hands straight above my head and coughed; then I ct,-c'r mv fineer in one ear, nnd t' en fn the olher, to ascertain if I could distinguish a sound by one on lv; then I stood off at one end of the room and read fine print-. t the olher, first with riglif eve" closed and then with left; then I stood over a lilting mn- hine. to see how much I cnulit hit bending over; then I jerked at another sidewavs; then nnllpd at. on ovpr mv held f hink that wis (bout aT lu; t was pn u rh But the tug of war was yet to come. Alter being examined . in other studies, we sweated over the toughest mathemat ical problems that, were ever invented. There have been an extra number of bovs bil?id'" as they call it, this time. Out of thirty who where examined with mn this fall, only four passed; out of five from Ohio, I was the only successful one. and out of the who'e spring and fall class of two hundred, only torty passed. Some of them went through a socond oral ex amination before the "Battery." hnt, failed. A graduate from Tale was a failure. The town of Annapolis, for many days was fall of grumbling anion? the rejected. One boy said he would give $5,000, and another that he would give his soul if he conld only pass. Thb attack of yellow fever found Memphis with a popula tion of 55,000. By death or flight the number has been re duced to about 12,000. Of ac tual victims there have been 1.600, and 1,200 are now sick with the certainty of a large mortality even under the im proved condition of the weth- er. Two inousana iamiues are dependent for support on vari ous relief societies, and 1,200 orphans are crowded into the local asylums. All long-known objects, even a mere window fastening or a pe culiar door-latch, have sounds which are a sort of recognised voice to us a voice that will thrill and awaken, when it has been used to touch deep lying fibers.
