Ahchhismop Clarke bus nUractcd atten tion to the theory of evolution by his sermons nt St. Paul's Cathedral on the opening chapter of Genesis. lie quoted the opinion of able modern scientists thnt the Darwinian theory is hopelessly out of accord with the proved results of later-day research. Darwin himself was aware of the wnntof the link which he believed would form into one continu ous chain the whole animated creation. If the gap between man and the ape could be bridged by the discovery of an intermediate creature, 'neither man nor monkey, but partaking of the nature and characteristics of both, then the evolutionary theory would need little further demonstration than that sup plied in the pages of the philosopher's own memorable work on the sub ject. The quest for the "missing link,'' however, proved futile, and it has been demonstrated that the ape is al most unresponsive to culture, whi...

HORSES AND MEN.. ' A Boston mail tells of an innocent farmer wlio once sought out u phreno logist and uBked him to road ' IiIh bumps. In revealing to the farmer his tem perament as shown by the aforesaid bumpB, the professor said:— "Your tastes are the simple, homely ones of the farmer. You are a far mer, are you not? Ah! I thought so. And I am right as to your tasteB, am 1 not? You are sadly deficient in judgment, anil have little knowledge of human nature. Your innocent and trustful disposition renders you an easy dupe to designing men, and your own perfect honesty prevents you from either suspecting or defrauding anyone." The following week, it appears, the phrenologist ^bought a horse from the innocent farmer. Although the nag was old and in bad condition, it hud been made to appear young and .skit tish. Moreover, though the farmor had paid but £!> for the animal, he contrived without difficulty to unload him 011 the professor for £15. "It's wonderful," said the farmer to a f...
