Many people think of the camel as
practically a -tropical ai imal, perhaps j
perhaps because some of its most I
nr. king characteristics ht il for cross-
in the Di s. rt of .Sahara. Its large I
.rage of water uiu tne minuwc i
soles of its te. t naturally suggest a
life near the equator. Kven the do-
slicated camels of Asia, whether or
ihe I'ersiaii-Arabian-Africau species,
which hae but one hump, or those of
Hadrian origin, which are endowed
with two, perform most of their serv
ice in what is. after all, a preity noi
climate, says the New York Tribune.
However, iu a recent number of
"Globus" Dr. Nihring, of Her. in, lays
stress on the fact that the liactriau
ctfmel is sometimes found in Siberia,
and can endure the greatest known
extremes of cold ns well us those of
heat, if the air is only dry. In the re
gion west of Bake Baikal the average
winter tempt ratures are considerably
lower than zero, and are often i0 and
60 degrees below that point. The hab
itat of the camel here overtops that
of the reindeer! Yet in the Gobi dea-
ert iu Turkestan, animals of the same
species have occasion to trot over
earth whose temperature a times
rises to 130 and HO degrees Fahren

concerning the origin of the old world

which giics its name to the two

of Afghanistan. And inasmuch as
fossil n mains of the fami'y haie been

Only at a comparatively recent date
was a satisfactory clew found to the
Hadrian camel's ancestry. Hut fos
sils fcoin lioutnnnia, near the Danube,
and from the vicinity of Hurepta, on
the Volfca. now indicate pretty cleorly
that the modern two-humped camel
