It is possible that when beyond the reach of the Frost this difficulty will not exist. As set comparatively Little excavating has Een done. About four thousand pounds of the Best have been removed to prof. Kerr�?T8 Home at Colorado Springs and several Hundred pounds of the Bones. In connection with the remains of this monster were found petrified Vertebra and ribs of a Small animal say eight or ten feet in length which possibly fought his last Battle and began his last sleep within the Jon hic apartment of the old gentleman. A few feet from the vertebral casts which seem to be about Midway of the body and not far from the stomach contents was found a tooth of a third animal. This tooth or the part of it now remaining is six inches in length and averages about three inches in diameter. It is evidently the acting end and its Bony Structure is Well preserved. Its form indicates that it was ready to do the work of its master. It however appears very Small alongside of those two feet or More in length belonging to the Large reptile. Not far from this tooth was found the head of a fourth animal this head is Stone and probably was. About two feet in length. A cast of joint belonging to a hath animal was also found near when the parts of the other animals were discovered. Could it be possible that All these four smaller creatures were Only a portion of the monsters breakfast what seems strange in connection with this discovery is that it should be found at this Day in a place so Public As the world renowned Garden of the gods. Thousands of Gold and pleasure seekers have no doubt used some of these very casts and Bones for seats and tables while enjoying their lunch and the picturesque Schneir around. Prof. Kerr has been devoting his spare time during some months past to the study of the different geological formations about Colorado Springs. He showed us a Large number of petrified nuts which he unearthed within the limits of the City. He has Over fifty species. Among them we noticed the Hickory nut butter nut Pecan a variety of Brazil nuts and the Almond. One which seems to belong to the Brazil nut family is considerably larger than a pint cup. As prof. Kerr is evidently doing pretty thorough work both in his own interest Ana that of Colorado College we May expect at an Early Day to learn More erf the pro Adamic history of the Centennial state especially of that part which lies near pikes Tribune Timber killers. About the 1st of december George Bradley of Street traded a Job cow and a revolver for a Cutter and at a the same time he began to increase his Hora horses daily allowance of Oats. Or. Bradley had consulted the Goose Bone the newspapers the almanacs and the old women and All of them had pre dieted an Early Winter and heaps of huh Snow. He imagined what a dash he Haj would Cut on the avenues with that a Nobby Cutter and he went to bed at by night to dream that an Indian wasps pelting him with Snow balls. The Days went by the horse grew fat and Snow did no to come. Or. Bradley got bib made then got madder and when this a last spell of Slop came he made up his a mind to have revenge on the weather and the weather Bureau and All the a rest of Detroit. He got out his horse and Cutter and Rode up and Down the Street mud six inches deep. It was bbb Tough pulling for the horse and bad a going for the Cutter but or. Bradley Felt that he was giving december the big test kind of a spat Between the eyes Ana he enjoyed himself. A crowd like Wise enjoyed the spectacle and it a Wasny to Long before the Leigh rider found himself cooped up on a charge Hlll of disorderly conduct. A a emr. Bradley a began the court Ash the prisoner was brought out a a i shall have to Fine you five dollars but i want a this audience and people of the state of Jjo Michigan to distinctly understand Ehu have my Heartfelt sympathy. In bulb a ave to Wade around in the mod i fall a Ker splat in the dope As i Tarn a a Corner and i no sooner j Down umber Rella than some Ghoul Boss of a with it i Hope you Hurt the weather till it will he crippled for life hat Yon a Mast a Fine a or. Bradley paid and then went out a doors and went for lie weather in a i Way that made the mud Fly ten of Poison Cru press. A a the boy before he cuts his cupped Teeth Longs for a Hatchet or an a and he eyes with Savage Delight the Beauty of the Arbor or the Forest. As he grows older the destroying Angel takes Possession of him and be imagines one of his missions in life is to destroy a goodly number of Trees. In the wooded districts of the land we acknowledge the necessity of Felling the Timber and even destroying it to make room for the farm and the advancing civilization. But this enmity to Trees has taken such hold of the sons of the Forest killers that in travelling through sections where once grew the most luxuriant forests you will find magnificent Maples and elms and been which were left As Shade along the highways girdled and dying or dead. To it past their spacious farm houses and you will see stunted evergreens or some foreign Shrub scattered Over the Lawn and not a Forest tree left with its inviting Shade. Cattle loll with their tongues out in the Rich Meadows and not a Friendly tree inside of the Linee of Fence. The boy with his Hatchet and father with his a have been there and in the name of Thrift and Enterprise have destroyed what generations to come after them cannot replace. Felling Timber is All proper to a certain Kint and then it becomes vandalism e declare now that the time has fully come when it should be something More the a poetic Call to the Woodman to a a spare that we should have Laws enacted Fai every state for the Protection of Forest Trees. We protect the wild Deer of the Woods and the Buffalo upon the Plains and the Birds that Fly in the air but glory in the Man whose Strong Arm goes on from year to year Felling our Forest Trees just is if no generation of men were to live upon the Earth after we Are done with it. The government of the states cannot too soon make their enactments and make it the Doty of every Man to plan Forest Trees along the highways and protect them. We would in this single movement have Long unas of inviting Trees stretching Outin every direction giving Comfort to myriads of people. Aside from the Comfort it is a matter of health and wealth. Health Bacasse the Trees Bear an important part in the purification of the air u note up the nauseous and �nc�����5wk am destructive Imel �1$. Wealth because fell All the forests and the Rich soil will gradually turn to barrenness. Within the memory of our fathers Springs have run dry and Purling noisy Brooks have been dried up because of the destruction and waste of our forests. It is Only an honorable desire which should actuate every Man that lives upon the Earth to try to leave it at least As Good if not a Little better than he found it morally and physically. To Day in the United states according to statistics there is every year expended in Felling Forest Trees and manufacturing them into lumber $150,000,000. Two Hundred thousand men Are employed in this occupation alone. What havoc they Are making among the tall Pines and. The poplars and the Walnut which in Large quantities we Are shipping to Europe. The question does not come up As one of arresting the legitimate use of our magnificent forests for the use of of mule not at All. Fell the great Oak and make the ties and Lay the Iron rails Cut the Pine and erect the masts and attach the sails in the name of Commerce but while we fell let us be Wise and Plant that those who come after us shall have Springs to drink and a Fertile soil to yield them the comforts and luxuries that we enjoy. What will All these railroads be Worth or Marble fronts when famine shall walk Over the land that is made sterile by the vandalism of selfish men running through the generations. These Are facts and not theories in reference to the value of Forest Trees and no subject contemplating the interests of the future is More important and More pres singly necessary than that of giving Protection to our Forest Trees and planting anew Over the wasted districts of the country. Congress a few years ago offered inducements to settlers upon our free Domain if they would cultivate Forest Trees. We do not know what the result so far has been but if further encouragement is needed it should be Given Unstine Teddy. Meanwhile let those already domiciled remember to Plant the Twig that a com ing generation May enjoy the Shade and bless them for their thoughtful inter Ocean. I making 014 japanese bronzes bronzes and Silks come in for a very Large share of the exports of Kioto and some of the work in Bronze is of a Superior character. I have heard several amusing stories about bronzes and the Way they make them Here. A merchant of Kobe saw a pair of very old vases in a Kioto shop there was no doubt about their age As they a it re eaten Here and there by Verdigris and the tooth of time old Teinus Edam serum. He was surprised at the Low Price demanded and immediately bought them and then asked the shopkeeper if he had any More. The latter sail he had none but would make them to order. A a i done to want new vases a was the reply a i want old ones like a a in la make them for you a the shopkeeper answered a a make them All just like the merchant gave the order and in a month he had his new Antiques with the necessary stamp of Tempus Edam. He ordered some More sent the consignment to London and had the satisfaction of Clearing about 400 per cent on the investment. The japanese maker told him that the process of venerable izing bronzes was very simple. A get Strong vinegar a said he a a and boil them in it a few hours and if you want to make them very old add a Little the same process has Long been used at Birmingham in making Waterloo relics and egyptian antiquities and the japanese Nave not been slow to find it out. They Are very Clever at imitation of any kind and if you allow them a Little latitude they will improve upon the Model. The porcelain factory which i mentioned in a preceding paragraph had imitations of All kinds of Ware from Japan and China and the proprietor offered to re produce any Sample which could be Rought. A a you can buy plenty of old Ware Here a said he a a but you had better have it made and then you know you Are not very Good and practical Cor. N. Y. Times. Useful and useless husbands the average husband is conceded by All intelligent wives to be utterly useless when at Home. He May be acute and skillful at his business and he May be an affectionate husband and father but when there is anything to be done at the House in the Way of repairing furniture or improvising cheap substitutes for bedsteads or mop handles he is of less value than his own Little boy who often helps his Mother. While this is undoubtedly True of most men there is occasionally found one whose chief Delight consists in constantly practising As an Amateur Cabinet maker plumber or Carpenter. He often prowls about the House seeking articles upon which he can use a Little glue or varnish and devising plans for filling up the Corner of the dining room with a few triangular shelves and for putting a wooden mantel piece in the Hall bedroom. The sound of his saw and Hammer Are often heard and he goes to bed at late hours with More part adhering to his fingers than his wife regards As strictly necessary. It is a curious illustration of the perversity of the female sex that a husband with this fondness for doing Little useful things is held among wives to be even More undesirable fran the kind of a husband who is perfectly useless. He is charged not Only with a fiendish fondness for Tete hammering but is constantly upbraided because he a makes so Many of ipad a in vain does he explain that planing a Board necessarily results in chips and that sawdust is the inevitable consequence of using a saw. He is told that he ought to be ashamed of himself and that no decent Man would think of making chips All Over the floor. These things however never dishearten a husband of an Active disposition who cannot possibly find any enjoyment in sitting at Home and doing nothing at All to him the Little Domestic jobs Are a relaxation especially when the nature of his daily routine business is of another kind and we earnestly implore wives who happen to key such husbands to be indulgent toward them As they Are really of More value to them and their children than be who when at Home do nothing fill their rooms with tobacco smoke a Chambers journal. A japanese Temple and its Sefl Cleee. This Temple is of very go to dimensions and gives evidence of the great popularity of the Buddhist Faith. / we made our Way through Tho pigeons that covered the pavement without stepping on any of them and up a flight of Stone Steps followed by a great Crait of inquisitive people Ana enter without taking off our shoes. We ssh before the altar among the Devoya whose prayers had the Christian Merit of being Short though the suppliants made no scruples of being seen erf men there was a Little Shower of Copper coins raining against the wire Seredni front of the shrine which fell Yum a grating and so finally into Buo Ohay a pockets without a doubt. The screen was covered with pellets is chewed paper upon which the prayers had been written. Hie god could after business hours doubtless decipher the inscriptions and put the petition of file. There is a Small wooden figure of Buddha accessible to the multitude and which May be considered the working Buddha he was surrounded by the afflicted. If one suffered from headache she rubbed the head very irreverently and then the corresponding part of her own if her affliction was in the Elbow the elbows were rubbed in the same manner and so every part had its corresponding remedy. The features of the poor ldol1 face were worn completely away and the whole figure was polished in a High degree by the Long service he had performed As a Healing medium. This is True homeopathy Similis Simi Libus Enron turn and there can be no doubt of its Efficacy when so Many millions through so Many Ages have practice it and have such unshaken Faith in it. I stood for some moments watching the practice and could not doubt judging from the expressions on the faces that their Faith had made them whole. I noticed that the Little Buddha who did All the work got no but the big Buddha behind the screen got it All. The whole Interior of the Temple is Hung with Enricos among which i saw a framed picture of a Steart ship and As we win it out at a Side door there confronted us a Jarge Mirror in order that none should go away dissatisfied and Wor shiners of another class might pause and adore the image they saw in it. I stopped there myself and saw the ladies of our party All doing the same thing. From there we saw some Side shows for the whole surrounding is like a fair and two cent shows with Druin and life were . Sari Francisco bulletin. What did Washington know we done to like to be irreverent but would like to ask what did our forefathers know Quot what for instance did George Washington know he never saw a Steamboat.
