Among the rccenl additions of inter
est to the Department of Geology in tho
Museum of Natural History at Central
Park arc Some monster bones, ,taken
from the ancient seas of Kansas and
Colorado, and representing a race of
creatures which had reached' tho maxi
mum of physical growth known on this
globe. The discoveries were originally
made by Prof. Mudge, recently de
ceased, whose name is connected with
all the important discoveries of the
great West, andby Prof. Marsh.

its skeleton shows it to have been close
ly related to tbe ostrich. Another
wonder was a. flying-bird, Iho icb
thyornis, having still more reptilian
characteristics. Its teeth, like the alli
gator's, were In distinct sockets, and,
stranger yet, its vertebras is bi-concavc
a peculiarity only found in the
fishes and -a lew reptiles.
One of c most gigantic reptile dis
covered ,was the Anpkbniias. Tho
thigh-boW was so heavy that the find
ers wor forced to harness a mule to it
to drag it out of the hole. It measured
over eleven feet in length. A section
of the vertebra;, from the dorsal por
tion, was a heavy lift for four men, and
when placed upon the ground in the
position assumed bv the animal, it tow
ered above the tallest of the party
being over six feet in height. To ap-
Ereciatc this, the reader must remera
cr that tho corresponding bone of the
nearest living representative of this ani
mal can be lifted by tho little linger.
Other fossil saurians, whose thigh
bones are six feet in length, have been
given a length of over 160 feet, irxhey
increased in proportion, to tnUit of
this bone, we should "Mvtt a creature
over 200 feet in tbgth, but, of course,
this is " itiy a supposition, though
quite, ".probable one. This saurian be
longed to the genus Amnfiicreliat. A
thigh-bone of an allied genus over six
feet long can bo seen in tbo Museum
of Natural History, Central Park.
It is , in a case n Geological
Hall, and side by aide " with
the Same bone of the nearest allied
form. Near by are other ereatuVes
representing the same agH Some of
the whales of this and later times were
150 feet long, and the Stalo of Ala
bama Was on-o, their roaming-ground.
In some localities now the enormous sec
tions of tho back-bones are so numer
ous that tho farmers arc obliged to burn
them and build fencos with them.
In another 'cose in tho Museum is ar
ranged a magnificent collection of fossil
sharks1 teeth, some of them As large as
a man's hand. They belonged to a
shark over 100 foct long. They tame
from Iho later beds of the. Ashley and
Copper Uivers, South 'Carolina, and
were Collected by Pnf. Holmes, the vet
eran geologist, bf Charleston. In a tall
vss are some beautiful crinoiils, pre
sented to the Museum by Kobcrt L.
Stuart. In the same hall are curious
armored and war-like fishes called
Chimaeroids, which measure 80 feet in
length, and tho bones of an animal
quite as large as the living elephant,
six of which are like those ofthc rhinoc
eros. This is knowii to science as the
dinoceros. Tho curious oreodon, too,
is here ; an extinct animal that seemed
to combine "tho characteristics of tho

M. AL was a retired manufacturer
and possessed of considerable fortune.
He als had a daughter, nineteen years
of age, of great personal attractions.
What wonder, then, that she should
have made a young fellow's heart beat
quicker who tried to gain her virgin af
fections? " Papa" M. took care of his
treasure as if sho were the pupil of his
eye, and many were the unhappy mor
tals who left his hospitable table never
to return. "Plenty of time." said he,

Then there was a succession of dark
days. But love is inventive, and in this
instance also proved to be so,
Mr. M. was in tho habit of visiting
twice a week at bis hair-dresser's td

and on this fact ldvo bunt his structure.
Ottettf the Aptluhgcr assistants was taken
into confidence, and, consequently", con
siderable attention was paia fijr the
yodilr man m Mr. M.'s hat, receiving it
Sn RLi entpring, giving it a careful
brush, and handing it back on depart
ure; and in this wise poor, dear " papa"
became, unconsciously of course, tho
postilion d' amour between his daughter
and hor swain.
Thus thiwrs continued for four Jori
months; buf tho best silk hat let il be
ever so carefully brushed, wants an
iron now and again. Mr. M.'s hat was

mas it wanted ironing badly. So Mr.
M., instead of proceeding to the hair
dresser's as usual, went to his hatter's
and pfeeuted his hat for renovation.
Mr. Hatter says, after inspecting it:
"Is this hat too large for you?"
"No; why do you ask?"
"Because you put paper inside.
"Paper! papef ! Not I; how does it
Not long did he wonder, for on care
fully unfolding the paper ho read:

I will confess my love tohinl. Besides,
our correspondence cantidt last much
longer; the contittucd brushing has so
worn papa's hat that I fear from day to
day .that he will have to have it done
Mr. M.'s hat having been refreshed,
he went'as usual to ni3 hair-dresser's,
having'previously carefully replaced tho
In the saloon he kept a steady, though
covert look-out on tho ollicious young
assistant, and found his surmises cor
rect. The operations finished, he gravely
received his hat, handed tho assistant
as usual his pour boirc. and departed.
Before returniuir home, however, ho
took occasiort to inspect his hat-, and ex
tract and read a missive from nd dther
than the engineer. Among other
things, the young" nian swore that not a

him more than sufficient to live
happy and comfortable.

A reporter of the Evening Post re
cently accompanied ono of the census
ettumerators in his tottr through a num
ber of houses in Baxter and Bayard
streets. As an illustration of tho dense
population in this part of .the city, it
may be said that at noon yesterday the
numerator nad compieieu nis worit in
o, 4i m, houses, and had secured
yen hundred and tweniy-seven
mes, an average of forty-nine names
mBb bouse, and even this is not a
falraimte, u ietwo or three of tho
houses families who could not -ejieH a
word of English, and who had recently
moved in, were found who could not
give any information concerning them
selves, nor could any of tho neighbors
give it for them. In Baxter street, be
tween Leonard street and "Bottle Al
ley," a number of dilapidated wooden
and brick hovels were found, inhabited
by the very poorest and most degraded
class of Italians and negroes. In the
basement of one of these hovels
nn Italian kept what he styled a
"hotel." Here in a dirt and
smoke begrimed room four or five feet
below the level of the sidewalk a dozen
or fifteen men and women were seated
or standing drinking stale beer. The
proprietor of tho "hotel" said that
these men and women were his "board
ers." In another house a colony of
Maltese were found who could not
speak a word of English, and no inter
preter could be found to make known
the errand of the census-taker. In a
rear house on Bayard street, near the
corner oi uaxier, a large numuer oi
Polish Jews were assembled, and in
each family were from four to eight
children. Abraham, Sarah and Rachel
were the names mostfrequently record
ed in this neighborhood. At hrst some
of the women,- who were generally at
home, .were inclined to refuse informa
tion, "but wHen tho purpose for which
ihis information was desired w fully
explained to them, generally mrougn
thearencv of ono of their children.
they answered all questions readily. In
several cases only young girls were
found at home, and they answered the
questions of the enumerator in a bold
manner ana losea wnu aim swui iua
work ; one asked him if he would mar
ry her or procure her a nice-looking
husband if she would tell her age truly.
.One woman who was in charge of a
small grocery store in the basement of
a Bayard street tenement said in reply
-to the request of the enumerator for
her name, 4 I don't know my name nor
my husband's name." The threat of
the enumerator xo cau m an omcer iuu
arrest her. however, hadV the effect of
stirring ip her memory, and she gave
ail Jfce information desired. On the
floor of the same house a family
h Jews were found. Here, in a
m measuring aoout weie ci
, fo'ur crown persons and six chu-
dfenwere sitting about a table eating
their dinner. A pan of fish was cook
inir oa the stove, and the floor was
covered"with dirt, and a child about a
year and a half old sat on a bundle of
dirty rags ia a. cradle guwing a piece
'schwartabrod." The child's face
wm covered with dirt aad sores, and
the whole appearance of the room indi
cated the moat abject poverty. The
enumerator received the names of
Abraham aad Sarah his wife, their
seven children and a boarder aad left

Considered delicious, the liver more es-
Eecially so. Dr. Livingstone siys he
reakfasted off cooked "elephant's foot,
and found it a whitish mass, slightly
gelatinous and sweet, like marrow,
and quite delicious. The bird's
nests wo have spoken of as being
consumed b,r the Chinese are procura

ate the nests of shallows found in cav
erns on the seashore of the Eastern Ar
chipelago, and are of a gelatinous na

bird Secretes anil discharges from its'
mouth whilst building the nost. Liz
ards are partaken of by the Chi
nese ; so are snakes. Spiders are rel
ished by Bushmen, 6o are grasshoppers.
Locusts are eaten, both in the iresh
state and salted, by Persians, Egyptians,
Arabians, Bushmen and the North
American Indians. White ants, bees,
moths, caterpillars, and grubs, all find
admirers, especially among the lower
savages. Ve have not got to the low

ticed by tho Japanese, wllo make it in
to thin cakes called tanaampo. It is
eaten especially by the women, who
take It to produce slendeniess of figure.

and planfc life deposited from fresh
water. In Northern Europe a bread
meal, consisting of the empty shells of
minute infusorial animalcules, is eaten.
Tho Wanyninwezi, a tribe living in Cen
tral Africa, eat clay between meals,
preferring tho clay of ant-hills. Some
earth-eaters take earth having no nu
trient properties. Tho Agmara Indians,
for example, eat a gritty whitibb clay,
destitute of all nutrient properties.
Tropical America is the scene of en
demic disorders from this depraved
dirt-eating habit. Ollieers who have
inuian cnuuren m luuiruiujnu u3wo
masks to keep them from putting clay
into their mouths. A " negro addict
ed to this propensity is considered to be
irrevocably lost foranv useful purposo,
and seldom lives long.1'
The quantity of food taken is also a
matter of curiosity when we have well
authenticated instances ofthc extremes
of going a long time without food at all,
in eating next to none, and tho other
extreme of eating enormous quantities.
In Siberia Sir George Simpson procured
a couple of men having a reputation for
eating large uantitcs, and prepared a
dinner for thera of thirty-six pounds
avoirdupois of beef and eighteen
pounds of butter for each. By the end
of tho first hour their "stomachs
were like kettledrums," havine taken
half thu .dinner: m another two hour;
thev haa uevourea me wnoioamner o:
one hundred and eignt pounus ot Deei
and butter. Those who eat so enor
mously are in a state of stupor for
three or four days, neither eating nor
drinking, and rolled about with a view
to promoting digestion.
Barrow says the Hottentots cat
enormously sometimes: "Ten of our
Hottentots ate a middling-sized ox, all
but the two hind legs, in three days."
And mrriim "Three Bosiesmans had a
sheep given to them about five in tho
evening, which they partook of all
through the night, without ceasing for
sleep, and finished by noon the next
day. On the other hand, in Shetland
a number of tho paupers, getting dne
shilling and one shilling six pence a
week outdoor relief, manage to live

No doubt we pass over edible things
through ignorance of fheir properties.
Thus oranges are moilly regarded as
things not to be despised; however,
about thirtv-five years ago a vessel was
wrecked at the Shetland Isles, and
amongst the cargo were large packages
of oranges. One of these was picked
nnhn np.asa.nt. who in a day or two
placed his treasure at the disposal of
the laird. "I've browt ye some bonny

peasant. "They are oranges, Maguie;
why don't you and vour wife keep them
for yourselves? They arc delightful
eating." "Why, ye see, laird,,r said
the man, "I thowt they'd be bonny

In cloudy weather grass dries but

Potatoes fsr Animals.
A writeu upon this subject has said
that "potatoes in the raw state ought
naver to be given to any animal, with
the exception of sheep and geese." It
is said "a goose will thrive better, and
tho ileah wUl bo more gratefully flav
ored, upon raw potatoes, sliced, than
unon any other article; -whilo sboop
will moro speedily thrive on raw
hnurs J potatoes than, on turn i: " ""
i reaurciauv in uio ucuuiuui", .
Eotatoes will scour cattle and
orses, and not unfrequently cause
death, while there is no danger of
either from boiled or steamed potatoes."
It may be true that they are excellent
for geese, and that they are excellent
for sheep is well known; of all animals
tho snoop likes a change from dry to
green food in the shape' of roots; and
that they should thrive upon them bet
ter than the turnip, for the reason that,
according to tables, the potato contains
a larger fat substance and flesh-producing
element than the turnip. Thus
a fair product is 200 bushels, or 12.000
pounds, of potatoes from an acre, which
are estimated to contain 2,640 pounds
of material for the animal system, while
the average vield of rutabagas of 20,000
pounds contains only 1,440 pounds: and
a similar yield of turnips but 1,400
pounds; so that relatively to each other
they stand as, potatoes 2.640. rutaba
oas 1,440, and the turnip 810, a little bet
ter than a third the relative feeding

NoahM. Wells, the Presbyterian
pastor who died recently at Erie, Penn.,
at the age of ninety-eight, leaves one
svrvivor in his early pastoral work in
Michigan the Rev. Albert Worthing
ton. Mr. Worthington went to Michi
gan nearly fifty years ago as a mission
ary, and passed a week in Detroit,
nreachim? twice for Mr. Wells. Of the
pioneers then in that Presbytery Mr.
Worthineton is the sole survivor.
There were at first thirteen of them,
and they met at Adrian, then a small
Tillage, to form the Synod, of Michigan.
Three years ago letters passed between
him aad Mr. Wells. "Four years
more," wrote Mr. Wells, " aad I shall
have lived a hundred years. Bat I am
annroachhur the river, and in all prob
ability saalTsoon pass over how soon I

cess of potatoes fed to cattle and horses
produces ill results cannot De uouoieu,
if the diet was exclusively potatoes: but
that a small quantity, fed with dry hay,
produces injurious results is insuppos
able. The boiling or steaming, which
generally means an addition of more or
less mild feed, would be much more
satisfactory. The same writer also
says: " Pigs will not always eat, and
never can be fattened upon, raw pota
toes, while, if they are boiled, next to
boiled pease, perhaps, they will bring
them to the greatest weight they are
capable of attaining, and to greater per
fection than anything else that may be
continuously used with saiety, aaran
ting that three to four weeks feeding
upon corn, oats or barley is necessary
to make the pork firm and impart
This is directly contrary to the expe
rience of a successful pork-raiser that
always estimated the value of potatoes
as four bushels to one of corn, and al
ways fed them raw, for the reason that
he obtained more satisfactory results.

the same time mix a bushel of corn
