There is it big room or two up at
Columbia College, in which are spread
abroad more wonders than were ever
dreamt of in Horatio's philosophy.
"Birds beasts, fishes, plants of strange
nature. Indian relies and all manner
of South American wonders are here,
the prizes captured in a two years'
struggle with danger and suft'ering by
an American scientific investigator.
The owner of these treasures is Dr.
floitrv 11. Rosby, of Detroit, who,
.Januarv 10, I8S0 left New York for a
tour through Chili and Bolivia in the
hope of discovering amid the fauna and
tlora of the Andes and the Amazon
home valuable additions to the medi
cinal riches of the American pharina
copu'ia. Dr. Ito-div's adventures were many
and interesting. He met the Mirocho
in its nath'c lair, did battle with the
Caripuna Indians and the man-eating
fish and alligators of the Belli river,
broiled in the stenches of La l'az, the
filthiest city this side of Constantinople,
took his daily d ses of quinine like a
little man. and saw the place where
live million cinchona trees are growing,
the source from which all the calisuya
cocktails of the future iim-t come.
From all this he came out much the
wor-o for wear, but still full of enthu
siasm, and coniideiit that out of the
three hundred native drugs he had ex
amined, two or three would prove, su
perior to the similar lvinedif now
known to the medical profession.
Dr. Bos by intended to land at Mallen-
do and go direct to Bolivia, but the Pe
ruvian w;ir prevented. General Caceras
was making things lively for the au
thorities. So he was obliged to travel
by mule from Taenia to La Paz. a seven-days'
journey, going from Ariea to
Taenia by rail, a tough journey across
a desert, without the shade of a spear
grass to relieve the monotony.
'The whole country of Ariea and
Taenia has been captured by the Chil
ians," said the doctor. "It is to be kept
for ten years. At the end of that time
the inhabitants will vote whether tore
main in Chili or go back tt lYru. The
country which gets them must pay
?10.uo6.000 for the prize. Mean
while Chili is doing every thing
possible to make things pleasant
for the people with music ami
games. The Chillians' present pur
pose is to have a United States of
South America, capturing the other
countries little by little, and gradually
adding to their strength and wealth.
They are a blood-thirsty people, loving
war" and extremely brutal in earning
it on. They murder men, women and
children with impartial cruelty, rip
ping them open with big knives.
Our journey irom Taenia was one of
terrible suffering. It was upon a
high table-land, reaching an elevation
of 10, GUI) feet, and for five days we
journeyed at an elevation of 11, 100
feet. The air was so rarelied that we
suffered much from soroche, the chief
symptoms of which were dilli
culty in "breathing. prostrating
muscular weakness and bleeding at
the nose and ears We passed the
beautiful volcano of Tacosa. which dis
charges across the road a river, the wa
ter of which is fatal to human life.
Men often commit suicide on the t-ble-land;
they sutler so much from sorocho.
There is also great danger from light
ning, which is frequent and violent
At one time thro 1 members of a patty,
in which 1 was. were prostrated by
lightning, ami a fourth was stricken
blind for eleven das. The wind is so
violent here that tree can not grow,
and the vegetation is mat-like, closely
hugging the ground.
Dr. Bosby crossed the Andes with
much tribulation, and went to work
among the valleys of the eastern slope.
He advises investors to keep away
from the old Spanish sil
ver mines,. and says that
in v belief that they were crudely work
d is a mistake. The Spaniards did
not lcae much mineral richness be
hind in their mines. "In Bolh in," he
said, "half the silver is counterfeit. A
Consul, who had grown tired of mak
ing coin sold his counterfeiting ma
chine to one of our party."
Among the wonders which the doctor
met was a half-pound li-h, so sensitive
that it attacked any thing which
caused a 'commotion in the water, and
so tierce that it would kill horse or man
in crossing a stream one hundred feet
wide, lie found a tribe of Indians so
virtuous that they t'nd the ir faithful

cat them alive, stripping the bones in
less than twenty-four hours. In brief,

Overfeeding Dairy Cows.
A very usual cause of barrenness in
cows and other dome-tie animals, is
excessive fat. Cows of improved beef
breeds are more liable to this than
those having less natural teiulopcy to
lay on fat. Heifers well kept during
winter, and turned on line pastures in
the spring, ln-come fat before autumn.
A thrifty heifer can be wintered in good
condition on good tame hay, with a lit
tle bran or other non-fattening food.
11 the animal is given a warm shelter,
very little fcraiii u advisable, and the
supply of hay should be regulated by
actual wants. Freedom and exercise
are to be given at nil times when the
weather is not too severe. As mmiii as
the grass is well started in spring,
heifer. m cows in. otf, should bu
turned out wuciv they will bo conipe'.rel
to travel 41 great ileal far fl)0,j. In
