It Is nothing more than a protuberance Composed of agglutinated hair. Y’ou •cut it in two, and. examining its structure under the microscope, you find that tt Ls made up entirely of little tubes re-Uembling hair tubes. Of course these are not themselves hairs, but the structure Ls the same. The horns of African rhinoceros sometimes grow to the length ef four feet. From them the Dutch Boers make ramrods and other articles. You may remember that the handle of \ha ax a«e>i by LTm.siopogaas in ‘Allan 'Quartermain' was a rhiimoeroa horn. In old timea rhinoceros horns were employed for drinking cups by royal per-aonages, the notion being that poison .put into them would show itself by bubbling. There may have been some truth ta the idea, inasmuch as many of the %ncient poiaon-s were acids and they would dacarapnse the homy matezial ▼ery quickly. “Several species of rhinoceroses, now extinct and only found in a fossil state, used to exist which had no homa at all The name, meaning as it does ‘homed •nose,’ Is rather a misnomer in their Traac Several kinds of rhinoceros in Africa iisvt- two horns, one behind the other, but the c.\tinct rhinoceros, known aa the dycerathe^ium, had a pair of homa on its nose side bj* side. Many of tbe giant reptiles of long ago had enor-snous homa. The great lizard known -aa the triceratcns had a big hora over •each eye and a little oae on ita nose. The dynocaras and the tineoeras, gi-igaoUo mammals of the tertiary epoch, liad three pairs of prorminences on their httda, which are believed to have sup-portcd homa However, the material of which hom is compeeod quickly decays, being largely composed of gelatine and other animal matter, so that these appendages are apt to h% found absent when the foeail bones of beasts which had them are found. “Some fishes have hams which are •acti ally outgrowths of bone on their heads. The boxfiah, which Lohabits the warm waters of the globe—a little fellow six or sight laches long — has hams an inch La length. Birds have horns also eomstimea. The homed acreamer (which is related to the dock) has a single hom attached to its skull, •prlnglng from a oartilaginous base and curving upward. It is really a modified feather, though a true hom.

Hut to bring about these ends or-irani/.aiion is iicce*^sary, and a thorough knowledge of onej another, which can only be nourijth d by frequent Conference and intimate asso eiaiioii is mo*»t desirable. The old maxim reails, “Union is treogtb;’* this maxim is exe npli tied the in le; e d of tbeo’d man who took the b intile t>f fagots Ixiund to. gelher, and in vain tried to snap them acro'-s his knee; taking off the cord that bound them he broke them singly with his hands, much as he wouhi tear a rotten branch from a decayed tree.

Hence the numberless organi* zatina of all kinds, and among all nati jnalities and denominations that exist in our own city if we want an example. U nioii is strength’’ is one of the most potent reaaons for the ex stence of these organizations. We have nu*, meroas associations in Fall Kiver whose membership is largely, if not entirely, made up of Catholics. With these societies a Catholic club or uu* ion will in no way interfere. There IS r»x)m for them all, and there is room in Fall River for a society Catholic in name. Catholic in mem. bership. Catholic in its every vitality, and Catholic in the real meaning of the word in its being universal over the entire city, and not be cramped or bound in within the limits of any parish, no matter how broad the boundaries of that parish may be. This is the sort of society that will be organized at St. 31ary,s hall to*morrow night. It should and will be a credit to the city. It will not beconfic(d to any exclusive number in its membership role, but it will extend its arras, as does the church, whose name it will bear, to all per. sons within her fold; it will be an organization where all may come together with profit; where iiiose who seek knowledge may acquire it with out price for the mere asking, and where those who have had opportunities of learning, may be still taught how much there is to leam, even beyond the university degrees, and bow much that educa» ion can be broadened and made profitable in an unselfish way to all tne members of the society by a Catholic contera*, ].lation of the broadness of humanity, and of the finite and limited in-Udlectual reach of all men, even the greatest that have ever lived, ane left their impress on their own and iuceeding ages.—Catholic Advocatd MISSIONS 111 iliningrtoii, l>e1.

PRO(;KESS ANI» NEKDS. The picture below, the members of St. Josfr-ph’s League will please notice, <*ontains one more building than last year, viz.:    the priest’s house. Heretofore the Sisters of St. Francis al >ne lived near the school, and the priest in charge lived in a neighboring parish. Not only the inconvenience of being three**quaru€rá of a mile a way from the mission building, but also the need of the colored people to see their prior t at a O mveni nt place for evening instructions, prompted us to provide a suitable dwelling for the priest in charge. For the present, the upper portion of the school building is used for church purposes, and the basement for school. Unless aided by a gift espe.ially made for the building of a church, the above accommodation will be all we can provide for the pr-^sent. Several country towns with large colored populations call for cur next care. It is our earnest prayer ored Catholic congregation i-^ slowly increasin.^, and they show every love and e »ruestnos8 to their church. It is, indeed, a very eucouraging and affecting r-peciacle to bear the colored congregation sing and pray dll-ing Holy Mass and Be ediction. Besides, thanks to the Sisters of St. Francis, there is great progress in our colored school. We now have 011-5 hundred pupils on the school roll, of whom eighty are regular attendants, Let, therefore, the members and friends of i^t. Joseph’s League once moro, in honor of our glorious patron, put their hands to the plough and by uuited efforts carry on and extend this great work. If we can» not all devote our lives to the foreign mission work of the cliurch w"e can at least co-operate by prayers and small contributions. □ Behold the efforts of non-Catholic SC' ts.

In Germany the law of corapnlsory insurance against old age and intiri mity—jiassed in June, 1889—cora» pletes the prurrr:iu\me legislation lor improving mo couuitiob of the poor anJ the workin8'.clas8e;>’ which was set forth in the imp rial rescript of the iTthbf November, 1881. It affects a portion of the population numbering more than 13,OOO,0O0, givflng them an inalien*. able legal claim to support in cases of infirmity and in old age. The insurance is compulsory in all in*, dustrial occupations upon persons of both sexes over sixteen years of age. Clerks, trade employees, and tradesmen’s apprentices who do not earn more than £100 per annum’ also participate; bat, oddly eaough’ assistants and apprentices in apoth" ecaries’ shops are excluded. Exemption from compulsory insurance is granted to persons who work for food, clothes, and lodgiug only, and who receive no pay or who are only in temporary employment. The pension for old age varies from £5 9s. 4d. to £9 11s. per annum, and is granted to every insured person who has completed the seventieth year of his age, irrespective of his ability to earn a livelihood, pro-i vided that he does not already draw a pension for infirmity. The latter ranges from£2 lls. to over £20, and is given, irrespective of age, to any person who is permanently incapacitated from earning his living. The pension can be refused if the infirmity has been brought on willfully or in the act of committing a crime. To the members and friends of St. Josephs League^ Dear Friends :— With hearts full of gratitude to our, blessed Lord we otter you our second report of St. Joseph’s League, established only two years ago in behalf of the spintual and temporal welfare of the lOO, 000 colored peo})le of this dios cese to whom we intend to offer an opportunity of knowing aud adopN ting our Holy Faith. All good w’orks, and especially tlie missions among iion-Catholics, or unblievers , are, asa rule, tried b^ various trials j and visitations of Divine Providence. ¡ These are the visible marks of ' God’s pleasure in our efforts and of : their future success. The first year , and a half the colored missions of ' Wilmington diocese seemed to be favored with great success. The that our Blessed Lord will continue His blessings, eo that, in course of time, we may be able to put up cheap frame chapeL, which could be used for school and church purposes. The towns most in need of such buildings are Cape Charles City, Va., Elkton and Chestertown,' Md.    i It is, therefore, earnestly to be ¡ hoped that the members of St. Jos- i eph’s League will continue their co-. ¡ operation in carrying on the great work of the Holy Chnrch in these , poor abandoned places.    i OUR SPIRIT AL PROORKSS. Although, owing to ray long sick^ ness, the colored mission has been much retarded, still, we are happy to state, that great good is being done by St. Joseph,s League. The col. A person is considered infirm if un» able to earn more than about ones third of his usual wages. Habitual drunkards may be made to receive their pensions entirely in kind. In such cases the pension is paid to parish authoritias, who supply the person concerned with his food, clothing, etc. In order to establish a claim to a pension under the German law, contributions, regulated by the amount of earnings, must be paid for a prescribed period. The means of paying pensions are obtained by fixed contributions from the imperial treasury, added to regular payments on the part of employers and employed. Side by side with this system here continues in operation the law which compels to be»» come members of approved friendly societies.— Chaanbers^ Journal, A COMANCHE HERO. How Two Indian Braves Settled a Question of Superiority. So man\" j’-ears ago that it seemed like a dream even to the narrator, the Co-manches were the greatest tribe on earth. 3’heir warriors were as numerous as a herd of bulfalo on the Arkansas in the fall. They were more cunning than the coyote. Their herd of ponies contained so many animals—all fine and fat—that no man could count them in a year. All the other Indians of the plains and mountains feared aud trembled at the name of Comanche. In the tribe, as is ever the case, there were two warriors who excelled all the others in their prowess. One was young and the other middle-aged. They were jealous of each other, each constantly attempting some deed of daring at which, it was hoped, the rival would balk. One fall, when the Indian summer made the air redolent with the sweet perfume of thousands of fiowers and the mountains were bathed in the amber mist of that delicious season, all the great warriors were I'eturniug from one of their most famous victories. They camped under the shadow of Medicine Bluff late one afternoon, where the young brave, who was quietly smoking his pipe as he hovered over the little campfire on which he was boiling a piece of antelope steak, happened to fix his gaze on the highest point of the bluff, and in that position continued for several minutes wrapped in a most profound study, while all the rest of the band stopped whatever they were doing and gazed at him as intently. Suddenly he rose to his full height, and casting a defiant look upon the warriors scattered around on the grass who, excited at his strange manner, sprang up to leara what he meant. Presently he turned his face toward the sun, which was about two hours high, and broke out with this boast: “No warrior equals me! I am the greatest of all the Comanches! I resemble that mountain!” pointing with his spear to the highest peak of Medicine Bluff. “My actions are as far above yours as that mountain is above the stream at its foot! Is there a warrior here who dare follow me?” Then he shook his spear and brandished his shield in defiance of any and alL His rival was all the time swelling with rage and pride. He knew the boast was intended for him alone, although he was the elder of the two. lie approached the braggart with all the dignity of the savage that he was, and striking himself on the bosom several times, exclaimed: “So! You are the greatest warrior of the Comanches? You are the buffalo that leads the herd? I am the old bull to be driven away by the cowardly coyote and die, leaving my bones to whiten? You* ask me to follow you. Never! I never follow! I will go with you?” The ^ tinder of the band gathered ar»'i    ‘■.wo    celebrated warriors. .. -    what new deed of dar ing they were going to attempt, as the rivals arrayed themselves in their best buckskin dress and mounted their favorite ponies- With shields held in a defying position, their faces painted and their bonnets of war-eagle feathers flowing in the breeze they rode away without another word. They forded the streaan. The youngest now started up the difficult trail which led to the sacred summit of the Medicine Bluff, where, stopping his affrighted steed, he pointed to the fearful precipice a few rods off and exclaimed:    ^ “You have followed me here; follow me further.” Then shouting the war-whoop, which made the echoes of the mountain awaken, and thumping the flanks of his animal vigorously, he darted toward the awful brink- His rival instantly raised his pony on his hind legs and, with a whoop more piercing, followed the young man, who, when he had reached the edge of the precipice, failed in courage, and pulled his pony violently back on his haunches. The elder saw his chance. With an awful yell of defiance and triumph, he forced his horse to make the terrible leap in mid-air. All the warriors on the grassy bottom below watched with eager interest what was going on above. They heard the whoop of the aged warrior as he jumped down the awful abyss. They saw him sit as calmly as if in his “lodge” as he descended, seated as upright on his pony as if his animal were walking the prairie, and, above all, they heard his clear voice as it rung out in the clouds: “Greater than all the Comanches.” Sadly they wended their way to the foot of the bluff, where both horse and brave rider lay a mangled mass on the rocks, the old warrior with a smile on his wrinkled face of unmistakable triumph. The boasting rival became a wanderer among the tribes. His name was accursed of all Indians. The very don of the camps snapped at him as he pass^. At last, overcome with mmorse at his cowardice and treachery, he killed himself. One day he was, found dead on the grave of his rival at the foot of the bluffi His body was eaten by . the. coyotes; his shield and spear, by which he had been identifled, were lying on the ground at his feet.—National Tribune. VALUE OF GEOLOGY. It Expands tlie Mental Horison and Broad, ens the Mind. Geology, then, in its broadest scope should be taught in our schools and colleges, and for at least twelve good reasons. At the outset we would claim that it holds equal rank with astronomy qf biology. The former science tells us of the existence of other worlds than ours, and gives us some conception of the im-mensdty of space. The study of plants and animals carries an impressive lesson as to the unity prevailing amid all the diversity of nature, besides affording the hope that we may at some time discover the origin of life, since it has already opened the way to an explanation of the origin of the existing forma of life; while the grand outcome of geological study is that it brings vividly before the xnind the immensity of timet enabling us to realize that time is only leas than, eternity. It also teaches ua that our earth has had a history, that our own race has had a high antiquity and thus tlie contemplation of past geological ages, reckoned by millions of years, the fact that our earth is coeval Avith the sun in ^ge—all these considerations tend to immeasurably expand our mental horizon, and thus to react in a way to broaflen the mind. Geology is also the complement of biology.
