Joseph 0. Lancaster, living north
west of Trtitsville, Mo., has a colt
eight months old that is a most
singular phenomenon of nature.
When foaled the only peculiarity
about it was that it had very little
hair on it, nnd its upper lip seemed
longer than usual with colts and was
of n singular tdiapo; otherwise it was
a well formed colt. Tho hair, what
(hero was on it, was n mouse color.
When about ouo month old tbe
colt's upper lip bad grown larger
aud assumed a conical form. Its
upper lip hns continued to grow
until it is now eight and one half
inches long and almost like an
elephant's trunk. It can pick up
small potatoes and apples with its
trunk (if wo may call it luch), but
c.innof bend it sufficiently to enable
it to put the apple or potato in its
mouth. The mother of the colt was
