They were sent by my friend. Mr. George 8. Courier, formerly of Jamesbnrg, N. J. Says the letter, "the bug was captured by me to-day, and no one around here knows what it is. £an you enlighten us on the matter?” I had never seen a specimen, and the anomalous thing threatened to elude identification. But in detective parlance— It U pretty band to play the quiz, . II but a fellow show* hla phiz. So 1 must look my object in the face, despite the saying, one should not look a gift liorse in the month. With glass in band tlie mandibles and oral armiture were examined. When tracing the name of a natural object it is something to lie positive as to what it is not, since that brings oa. nearer to what it is. A mere glance got the creature clown to the Or tkopUra, and soon it was landed into a restricted family of the same, the Locus tididst. And here science is ortnodox, where the people are not; lor it applies the word locust exactly as does the Bible, to certain of the grasshoppers, sod not to the cicadas, as is done in popular speech. But there are fully six genera of tlie locpsu proper. So on looking farther s peculiarity of the feet to noticed, which throws oor stranger into the group known as the Sienopelma(i..i. The term to built op on two Greek words, and to intended to mean the "narrow-soled iocnats." This will bring ua to the genua; bat as this contains several spre'ea, which ol these to it? Looking at the specimen again we observe ita ornamentation; the abdomen to banded with alternate ring*- of block and white. This ends the quest, for it derides the species, namely, fascia tus, the banded. Thai the search for title to okwed, and the scientific name of oar interesting stranger to found to be stenopefmatus Jasciatus, the "banded nar row-eoled locust.” Hence the technical terra to really pictorial if only understood. The specimen sent me to a male, and wingless. Thia to true, also, of the fe males, for the species to entirely apterous. And mark the interesting fact which here cornea out. In our vast country we have •one forty kinds of true locusts. Of these twenty-three spe. ies ere wingless, or hsve these organs abortive, so that flying is impossible. Hence the usual habitat of these apterous ones to in treeless regions. Prof. Thomas, who first described this insect, says the species is found in Wyo ming, Utah, Southern Utah, Southern Idaho and Texas. They are, however, rare. The conditions of life are some what bard with them; hence they can not, by increase, become • scourge. I find myself much interested in this bit of very homely animated nature at which I am looking for the first time, and even seem to be writing about it on toe simple impulse of instinct, and not without regret that the interesting thing moat go into the cabinet in such a mutil ated condition. But even thus—how sug gestive of the wisdom of the creator! "Sermons in stones?” Yes, verily! But in this bit of defunct animation to a treat ise on the relation of the environment, and the economy of the forces in nature. Usually science is too sober-faced to countenance the punster. Yet this heav enly-eyed one has her tender humor. This, now the "bended narrow-sole” of the tribe locus:id*, had to wait the com ing of the Wise Men of the East, the ten deriootaof the colleges, to give it such christening as should introduce it to sci ence, and make it another contributor to the understanding of the divine ways in nature—for the correct knowledge of even on insert may reveal "tilings unattempted ia prose or rhyme.”— B.

Tbit tigress baa been the aoourne of the neighborhood of Chakratn for the last too years, ami her victims have been innumerable. On one occasion abe soiled one oot of a number of banters who were sleeping together in a but. car ried him off, and deliberately made him over to harcmha to play with, while aha protected their innocent gambols from being tlieturbed. Hie cotnpaotonn were eventually forced to take refuge in a tree tom bar savage attacks. The tigress went back and stood over the prostrate formed bar victim and purred ia a catlike and salfueinplacent manner, rolling over the appareuUy lilelem body. .Site then lay down a few yards off, and with blinking eyea watched the gambols of her young progeny.

Once more the domed wretch had to defend himself over again, tom their pleyfol attacks. He made re newed attempts to regainblatoedom, but was seised by the old tigress and brought heck each time belore be had gone many yards. Hia groans and cries (or help were heartrending; but the men on the, tree were paralysed with (ear and units' unable to move. At leal the tigress her etH joined in tbs gambols of bar eube.l and tbe wretched man was thrown about and tnaaed over her head exactly as many of as have teen cats throw rale and ir.kw about before beginning to feed on them. The man's efforts it escape grew feebler. For tbe lea’ lime thay sew him try to get away -n hia bands and kneea towards e large flg tree, with the coin clinging to kin limbs. Tbe Anal attempt was as fall is an the mat. Tbe tigress brought him back once mom, and then held him down under her lompswe, and began her livngmea before i heir eyea.

They were working op her trail, fifteen yards apart, when and* denly Mr. Uamaston beard hie younger companion groan, and tuning round aaw him boroa to the ground by the tigress. Mr. Osman ton luckilv succeeded In shoot ing her through the spine, and a second ball stopped her in mid-spring. Mean time his companion rolled over the hill and was eventually discovered insensible a few fe.rt away from his terrible assail ant. He is terribly mauled, and now lies at the Chakrata Station Hospital, where hopes of his recovery are entertained.— London Times' Calcutta Correspondence. AM Tkdt Skill Be I* flirt hiMi.

A lew Style af Can. The Northern Pacific has just received twenty new colonist sleepers from Bar ney, Smith & Co. that are models of beauty, convenience and comfort, and contain many improvements over the ordinary colonist sleeper, or so-called tourist car, generally in use. Each car has fourteen sections with gentlemen’s toilet room in one end, and the ladiea’ room, supplied with marble topped washstand and force pomp, in tbe other. In one end of the car is a Baker fireproof beater, which beats tbe car by means of hot water conducted through pipes. In the opposite end of tbe car ia a cooking range surrounded by good kitchen facilities. Opposite this range is a twenty gallon cooler for drinking water, also a large tank holding seventy gallons of water for general use. These cars are finished in natural woods —ash, maple and butternut,—beautifully! polished, and at night are lighted up with eight Acme laropa exactly similar to those in use on Pullman sleepers. The sections are divided by sliding head-boards, effect ing a privacy not possible in the present style of can, where the the sections are separated by a wire netting. An ingeni ous arrangement of the seats enablss them to be extended flat or with head rests when prepared for bedding, and under each seat is s box in which can be stored bedding or small baggage. In each section there is also provided a mov able table similar to those in use in PnU man cars, which is extremely convenient for many purposes. All cars are provided with curtain rods. * Notwithstanding the fact that the Northern Pacific employs a porter to look after these sleepers, all holders of second class Montana and Pacific coast tickets are allowed to use them free of charge. The Northern Pacific haa a greater number of these sleepers Is ser vice than any other transcontinental line, their total equipment now amounting to sixty-three ears. It is clenr that in pro viding for the comfort of the traveling public the Northern Pacific, with its new vestibule*! dining and sleeping ears and superior accommodations for second class passengers, lends all its competitors.—The ( /ndfpcad/rt l.
