Some of its Well known organs have never revealed either their uses or the reason of their Crea tion. The part played by the spleen in human life was discovered but re i gently. 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 Turcina is in the opinion of certain savants the vestige of a sixth sense which was of great use to the antediluvian ances tors 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 seat of the mysterious sense of situation or locality the Power to Orient their course the sense so highly developed to this Day in Sav Ages and certain animals. The theory is plausible but it is doubtful whether Man will Ever acquire any real knowl Edge of the reason for the existence of the Delta turcica.?Exchange. Nests in colonies. Home of the african grosbeaks As big As a native s hut. The biggest Bird s nest in the world not excepting the storks is built by the african Grosbeak. It is really 100 nests or More bound together with closely interwoven Sticks vines and strands of coarse grass and is not built by a single pair of Birds but by a Colony of them. It is of such enor Mous size 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 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 Cornice like a curtain to keep out any stray drops. These great nests Are added to from year to year each pair of mated Birds building on the main nest. Sometimes the nest be comes too heavy and the Branch Breaks or the great mass of Sticks Falls to the ground destroyed by its own weight. The Grosbeak is no larger than an English Sparrow and just As gregarious.?new York press. Honesty extraordinary. A traveler writing in an italian Magazine says that the Swiss Canton of Ticino is inhabited by the most Hon est Folk it is possible to imagine. In most of the tic inese villages the writer says the oldest inhabitants do not remember any Case of thieving however Petty within a lifetime. Lost objects when found must never be taken away they must be left where they were dropped or placed in a conspicuous position so that the rightful owner can find his property More easily. The Case is cited of an american woman tourist who lost her purse on an excursion in the Capri Asca. The purse contained Gold Coin and a jewelled watch. Upon returning from her trip she found the purse with its contents intact on a Little Heap of leaves so placed that it could not fail to attract her attention.?new York Sun. The parsers of India. It was at a Point near the ancient City of Surat that the parsers first landed in India when driven out of Persia by their Mohammedan conquer ors eleven centuries ago. Few things Are More remarkable than the manner in which this Small Community has retained its religion and racial characteristics unchanged during that Long period. The Peculiar style of head dress worn by the parsers is said to have been made compulsory by the hindu King of India when the parsers first obtained Refuge in that country and they have used it Ever since. To Day the parsers Are the leading com Mercial nation of India. Told him in few words. A Man once wrote to the Rev. 0.
