A MARINE WONDER.
The Great Coral Harrier Keel Off Aus
tralia and Some or Its Features.
One "of the' marine wbnders of the
world is the great barrier reef of Aus
tralia. This stupendous rampart of
coral, stretching: in an almost unbroken-
line for twelve hundred and fifty miles
along the northeastern, coast of Aus
tralia, presents features- of interest
which are not to be equaled in any
other quarter "of the globe. Nowtfere
is the action of the little marine in
sect, which builds np with untiring in
dustry those mighty mountains with
which the ' tropical seas are studded,
more impressive; nowhere are the
wonderful constructive forces of na
ture more apparent. By a simple proc
ess of accretion there has been reared
in the course of countless centuries an
adamantine wall against which the
billows of the Pacific, sweeping along
in an uninterrupted course of several
thousand miles, dash themselves in in
effectual fury. '
Inclosed within the range of its pro
tecting arms is a , calm island sea,
eighty thousand square miles in ex
tent, dotted with a multitude of coral
islets and presenting at every turn ob
jects of interest alike to the unlearned
traveler nd the man of science. Here
may be witnessed the singular process
by which the wavy, gelatinous, living
mass hardens into stone, then serves
as a collecting ground for the flotsam
and jetsam of the oceap, and ultimate
ly develops into an island covered
with a luxurious mass of tropical
growth. Here, again, may be seen in
the serene depths of placid pools ex
traordinary forms of marine life, aglow
with the most brilliant colors and pro
ducing' in their infinite variety a be
wildering1 sense of the vastness of the
life of the ocean."1 .

Mr. W. H. Dawson, in his recent
book, VGermany - and the Germans,"
thus describes the peculiar methods of
one of his university , professors: The
moment he opened the door of the lecture-room,'
and before his hat was re
moved, he began his discourse, and by
the time his coat had been hung against
the wall he was deep in his subject.
Sometimes he looked at his hearers,
but more frequently he turned his face
to a side window while speaking and
contemplated space. : The clock having
struck, he would rise from his seat,
and, still speaking, would dress and ad
vance to the 'door, and . his last words
might sometimes be heard resounding
through the corridors. '

Shell Mounds of Delaware. ;
Interesting relics of dead' and gope
Indian tribes are the great mounds of
oyster shells formed along the seashore
in southern Delaware. Accarding' to
local tradition the Kanticokesof Penn
sylvania were in the habit of wintering
along the seashore in lower Delaware
and of eating enormous quantities of
oysters. The shells testify to the ap
petites of the Nanticokes, and many
Indian implements are foUnd in the
