It is called Mcllonnld's 'htone, bceauso it was accidently discovered by Mr. McDonald and a friuud, who were leaning against it. A cursory glauco at the muss gives no indication of its wondrous: equipoise, aud it is a curious fact that Mr. Simmons, a local zoologist, while looking for this one, found another a few yards away.
