A Fat Frog,
The Daily Astoriau, a usually 'truth
ful paper, lias the following : "While
a large fir log was being sawed at the
VVwt Hhoe mills yesterday afternoon,
Tom Tm I linger - noticed something
very singular. The outside slab and
one board hud been ut off, and the
men were f.urulng the lor over prepar
atory to Miliarias jt, when they were
surprised to see large toad poke his
head out of a hole where he was mi
bedded, and where he hud barely eu.
euped being cut up by the saw. How
thatcreaturejerer got there is a mys
tery, as he was completely encased in
the wood, with no possible means of
Ingress or egress. As the log was the
third up from the butt of the tree, his
position must have beeu about sixty
feet from the ground. There is but
one way of accounting for the fact that
be was found in the position named.
He hud grown up will) the tree from
Infancy, and was probably hundreds
of years .old when the saw awoke him
frouiliie long nap. - The niiinuil was
real fat and nearly us large aenws as u
msii's hand, The tree In which lie
was found was perfectly sound, , with
tut exception of a decayed 'spot about
afoot in length below, the hollow plane
where he had so long lain. ;,,
