The sclnru. of the genus tlpulx, a

In tho forests of Norway nnd Hungary

Betting out on tills Journey, they stick
themselves together by means of some
cltitinous matter and form a huge bop

of between forty and llfty feet and sev-1
oral inches in thickness. As the sclara

Their pace Is of course very slow,
and upon meeting nil obstacle, such as
a stick or stone, they either writhe over

two bodies for the pin pose. A ecle
brated French naturalist says that If
the rear poitiou of this Biiakellke pro- ,
cession bo brought into contact with
the front part the Insects will keep
moving round In that circle for hours,
never seeming to realise thnt they nre
getting no farther on their Journey. If
the portions bo broken in two, the pro
cession will unite In a short time. When
the peasant meets one ot these proces
sions, he will lay some obstacle In front

This story regarding a converted bar
barian Is told in the English papers;
A negro clergyman was entertained nt
tea by the president of a college. The
guest, who came from west Africa, re
tailed some particulars of his early
life, when a lady asked him how he
became a Christian. "The story of
Jezebel cotnerted me," he answered.
"You know, we are told the dogs did
not touch tho palms of her ' :uda. Well,
that convinced me of the 'ruth of the
narrative, for we never ' the palms
of tho hands In my count. . They are
Allltnile nnd VoIccn.
Generally speaking, races living at
high altitudes havo weaker nnd more
highly pitched voices than those living
in regions where the supply of oxygen
Is more plentiful. Thus In America
among the Indians living on the pla
teau between tho ranges of the Andes
nt an elevation of from 10,000 to 14,000
feot the men havo voices like women
nnd women like children, and their
staging Is a shrill monotone.

too well what a tartar the deceased
lady was icjoined, "Aye, my lord, but
