' The statement is that new con

all the old coaches are going into
the shops for complete overhauling

Most of the coaches are now in the

THOUGHT IT AN ANIMAL.
It Came From Inside a Cow's Heart
. Was Brought to Corvallis From
Some strange things come to
light in the bacterlogical depart ,
ment at the college. A man came
there the other day with a Mason
quart jar, inside of which was an
object that the bearer believed to
be some sort of an animal. The
thing was large enough to almost
completly fill the jar. It had been
taken from the heart of a cow that
died at Loraine, Iane county. The
cow had died under unusual cir
cumstances, and the post mortem
revealed the fact thatyber heart was
unusually large. It weighed in
fact more than.sixty pounds. When
the heart was opened the thing
which the investigators thought to
be an animal, was found inside.
At first sight it struck the behold
ers as resembling in appearance a
very large water dog. One of its
tentacles Extended far up the aorta,
and was 32 inches in length. . . v
The phenomenon was so unusual
that the Grange of the vicinity
voted to pay the expenses of a man
to bring the strange object to the
college for examination, and the
plan was carried out. The speci
men was turned over to the bacter
iological department, where an in
vestigation showed it to be a poly
pus. In its growth it had filled
one of the ventricles completely and
had extended to other parts of, the
heart, among other ramfications,
sending a 32 inch tentacle far up
into the aorta.
A polypus is a tumorous growth
sometimes found in the nose of
human beings. Its presence in the
heart of a cow. is one of 4 the new
things to scientists.
A STORY OF OLD.
But Many a Time .Re-told A Feast,
' and a Fall of a King. '
. Belshazzar has ever been a pop
ular character in history. . Just S
the ill-fated Charles of England
has been studied, and the present
Nicholas of Russia is a subject of
keen interest. The story of the
dissipation, overthrow and utter loss
makes the lite or Jttelshazzar stand
out in history as no other, with
the possible exception of his great
The scripture story of Belshazzar
is found in the fitth chapter of the
book of Daniel, ; and in this one
chapter the sacred writer pens one
of the most vivid and striking des
criptions of dissipation, sacrilege
and utter indifference to imminent
danger that the world has ever seen.
The opening sentence reminds one
of Byron's "The Eve of Waterloo"
VThere was a sound of revelry by
night and Belgium's capital had
gathered there her beauty and her
chivalry." "So in Babylon of old.
when Cyrus and his Medes were on
all sides and had --completed the
great canal for the draining of the
Euphrates, Belshazzar - made a
feast to a thousand of his lords.
But in the "midst of their revelry
the hand of God penned the words
of doom." Daniel, ; the only man
who could interpret " the ; signs of
the times, read the message. Cyrus
and his hosts were all ready en
tering the city. : Belshazzar was
captured and the empire given to
the Medes and the Persians. Con
cerning this history we are not lim
ited to thebible for our facts but
find themcorroborated I elsewhere.
' Xenophon tells us that Babylon
was taken by night while the city
was revelling. Among the most
interesting Babylonian tablet in
scriptions - about - Belshazzar are
found several notes, which he gave
in the ordinary transaction of busi
ness. " In these the date of making
the security,-and the time of pay
ment are given. : On mother tab
let he is mentioned as the first
born of the king and hence was the
prince regent in-the absence of his
father- -during.' war. " -His name
means, "May .Bel protect the king

prayer was unanswered by Bel.
One of the strongest proofs of the
accuracy of the Bible narrative is
the fact that, though there are
many tablets found concerning
Belshazzar while he was a prince,
not one has been' found concerning
his acts as king. This shows al
most conclusively that he was cut
off almost at the beginning of ' his
reign. Perhaps this very ' ; feast
was the one celebrating his acces
sion to the throne. Because his
father lost the battle of Seppar to
Cyrus and was probably killed and
the son at Babylon amid revelry ac
ceded to the throne. But in his
dissipation, negligence and sacri
lege he was cut off, and in history,
song and story the world continues
to take fresh, lessons of " warning
from his felly.
