Dr. .Sttude refcrt'iic to tins nn
liquated belief of no old ignoramus
who still fonilly clings to tho ideu
that "swallows nml swift hibernate
in the mini, nt tlio ImMunis of rivers
during tli winter season, ntul llutt
tin- juncou turn into sparrows in thu
summer and buck to juncoi when

ii iiiiiiiIht of oilier absurd tlit'orit'D
tlnvt educated people no longer
ooiiiitcmuire. Tlio llrst is the joint
miuke, or, an it in more cuinidy
oulled, (hiss-snake, which, tifior
throwing away his taii, is credited
with "hitcliinc on" to it nj;iiiii. It

suddenly disturbed, throw them
selves into niimrrous pieces mid
eventually, always after the observ
er has retired, jump haek together
ngnin. To such an extent has tliiii
"yarn"' been eireulated, that the
.ivenigo school hoy rceats it with
apparent emidor. As u mutter of
f.iet, the throwing, or breaking ap.irt
process only oecttrrs when frighten
oil, and in caused hy a Midden con
traction of the muscles of the tnil,
which cause it to break oil' nod
usually into several piccei, lis if it
wore brittle. According to the clas
sification of most authoritieH, it in
not a snake at all, but lizard.
.Mr. It. V. iJiinkaid, a ineinber of
the Academy has one of these hand
some little" fellows in captivity.
Some iuterestin", facts not generally
known concerning the habits of this
lizard will probably result fioin the
forced conliiieinent of this specimen.
The ipiick eye of a frolicking;
HchiKil boy detects a moving thread
like object in a roadside middle left
by u recent shower. Lo! llu has
discovered a horn-hair possessing
life. The hair-snake is captured
and critically examined by all the
school children; teachers as well.
lCven if the teachers have given zo
ology some attention and know bet
ter, "many of them do not take stilli
eieut interest in the matter to con
tradict the old time noncsense, and
tile boys go home, procure a number
of horsehairs which are put alloat
in the "rain-water" barrel, or some
other receptacle, and patiently
watched for a number of days. Of
course, they never come to life, but
the boys, having positively seen one
"live lioiM'hair," grow up and tell
the same ridiculous tale to their
childien. Like the, this
tiny worm is not a snake at all, !;
ing" placed by naturalists among the
vermes. They are clo.-ely allied to
the fatal trichina, though they de
velop in much lower forms of ani
mal life, leaving them on arriving
at maturity.
Another' exploded old time notion
is that owls see only during the
night, whereas they are now credit
ed with seeing equally as well dur
ing the day aa by night. That
owls turn their heads round and
round until twisted oil', in their eff
orts to watch an enemy, who, know
ing his bird, is reputedly walking
around his prey, impatiently waiting
the fall of the "head that he may en
joy a dainty meal, is eipially as
rank rubbish.
Notwithstanding the assertion in
Wood's Natural History, that rattle
snake and burrowing owls live in
prairie dogs' durrows, finding an
easy subsistence otV the young dogs,"
it is known to a certainty that the
rattlers and owls "in all eases oc
cupy the deserted hill rows of the.o
quadrupeds, not living in common
with them, as usually iiposed."
The emblem of our country, the
bald eagle, is no longer considered a
noble bird, but is known as an
ignominious thief.
Yours ago, the natives, in prepar
ing skins of the biids of paradise for
foreign markets, for funic reason,
best known to themselves, always
removed the legs, and in such a
manner that an examination of thu
skins stiportcd the deception, so
that for many years these birds were
SlljiHsed to be legless.
That the wishbono of a goose can
in any way indicate the future con
dition of the weather is as hoelcssly
untrue as that, if the woodchuck
sees his shadow on the -d day of
February, we may oxjioctii cold nnd
luckwar'd spring. Likewise, we
may accept the "charm" theory of
snakes with considerable doubt, and
it is now the belief of naturalists
that the opossum does not "play
'jxiMiUin," hut is simply paralyzed
with four.
Our Atlantic lords possess largo
und intelligent eyes, and, aa some
djK!ele have manes, it ii not to bo
wondered at, that ignorant Kskhno
and Miertitious sailors, on swing
those itttitnuU unexpectedly emerge
frtuii the sen, with their inanos drin
ping w ith water and uttering sound
strangely human, should mistake
them fur human being. This, no
doubt, gave rise to the mermaid,
merman, sirrne, triton nml eon
nymph legends. The so-called mar
maids to lie wen in dime mmcuiin
are all manufactured.
The story of the IU'x dropping
from lofty precipices and lighting
on its horns as couioedly as we
would jump a few feet, ban long
since censed to lie considered any
thing but a "fake," though early
naturalists often reported it ns a
' Blind as a mole" no longer pre
vails, as moles have eyes, though
they are sin. ill and well hidden in
the thick co it of sofi fur covering
their head and Ittsly.
Thus, gradually, the fiction and
romance connected with and Mir
rounding many of our animal is
siiccumliing as reason anil study
x'iietrates and disperses the fog of
ignorance and Miorstitioii The

The corressinilent of the London
Times at Alexandria telegraphed on
October 11 thnt three colossal stat
ues, ten feet high, of rose granite,
had just been found at Aboukir, a
few fret below the surface. The
discovery was made frem indica
tions furnished to the government
by a local investigator, IluniniH
1'asha. The first two represent in
ono group Kamcscs II and litieeu
lleiitmara seated on the same throne.
This is uniipie among Kgyptian stat

Kamesrs standing upright in mili

and a crwn upon his head. lloth

both have been thrown from their
(Hnlcstals face downward. Their
kite is on the ancient Capo Zeph

Within the past thirty days over

received in this city as the output of
the mines adjacent to Maker City.
A large amount of money, to be sure,
but nothing as compared to the

this source if reduction works were
established in Maker City. The out

As soon ns practicable in the
spring the people of Maker City
should take steps, with the imsis
tance of the jn-ople of Grant county,
to establish a telephone or telegraph
line between this city and ('anion

people of the interior and would
