A cavity that May Hava been the seat of a sixth sense. Despite the Progress of physiology the study of the human body is full of mystery. Some of its Well known organs have never revealed either their uses or the reason of their creation. The part played by the spleen in human life was discovered but recently. It is now regarded As one of the principal agents in the circulation of the blood. But there Are in the marvelous human organism mysterious parts which it is possible that no savant however profound his learning May Ever understand. For instance in the Skull behind the cartilage of the nose there is a Little cavity of unknown origin. Physiologists believe that at one time several thousand generations ago it contained a gland consisting of two lobes joined by their common base. This cavity the Delta tur Cicat is in the opinion of certain savants the vestige of a sixth sense which was of great use to the antediluvian ancestors of Man. It is believed that this Little gland enabled them to see in the darkness when they had not yet Learned the secret of procuring Light that it was the sent of the mysterious sense of situation or locality the Power to Orient their course the sense so highly developed to this Day in Savages and certain animals. The theory is plausible but it is doubtful whether Man will Ever acquire any real knowledge of the reason for the existence of the Delta .

It is of such enormous sire that at a Little distance. It is often mistaken for one of the native huts built in the Trees so frequently found in wild tropical countries where Man eating animals abound and the Only Way to sleep in safety is to a Roost the Birds usually select a Thorn tree probably because of the Protection afforded by the Sharp Long thorns against marauders. All around the nest the roof of Sticks thatched with dry grass projects to let the rain run off. A deep fringe of grass hangs from this comice like a curtain to keep out any stray drops. These great nets Are added to from year to year each pair of mated Birds building on the main nest. Sometimes the nest becomes too heavy and the Branch Breaks or the great mass of Sticks Falls to the ground destroyed by its own weight.
