Cave Mountain, In the Siskiyou Na
tional Forest, In Josephine County.
Oregon, has lately been set aside as a
national monument by President Taft.
The mountain contains some extensive
caves In the marble and other lime
stone rocks that compose It The
caves were discovered In 1874 by a
.bear hunter, and were partly explored
three years later Although they were
penetrated to a distance of two miles.
It Is known that there remain many
chambers and passage ways which
Imve not yet been entered. The gov
ernment has built trails through the
'orest to facilitate access to the caves.

A Paris contemporary dealing wjth
the lore of great men for animals
gives an amusing account of Chateau
briand and his monkey, the London
dob says. When he was engaged In
preparing Fontanes works for the
prewi on returning one day he was
met by his monkey.
"Ah. you rogue." said Chateau
briand, "your shamefaced look tells of
mischief" The monkey was chained
up, but as things did not appear much
disturbed Chateaubriand thought no
more of the matter until It whs time
to resume work. Fontanes' manu
scripts were not to be found.
At last Chateaubriand looked Into
the waste paper basket and there were
the manuscripts. The monkey had
watched his master, and as he had
seen him fold a sheet of paper and
tear It Into four, so he had dealt with
Fontanes' writings. With much labor
they were pieced together and after
Chateaubriand thought It advisable
to see what else the monkey bad done.
His orders had disappeared from a
drawer which was always kept closed.
The servants searched everywhere for
them, but they were not to be found
Nearly a week elapsed before they
were traced, and then a domestic no
