Just see," and the old man turned the gas out. "Just observe, my boy, how the moon's yel low rays light up this room. Truly it is-a glorious spectacle.

Hi was crossing the Vaal River in 1869, looking for diamonds. He asked the natives if they had seen any "pretty stoiaes" and at last he found a man who had a diamond. It was a small stone, and the prospector offer edl him £10 .for it, but he refused to part withit.l . IHe increased his offer to :£12, but still the man refused. "What will you take for it?" he was asked. '"wenty goats," was the firm reply; "nothing less. "I sent .off to the nearest .farm," says Sir J. B.

In view of i- this it was somewhat surprising to see y it reported in the metropolitan press y last week that there was a "slump" it in the price of pigs at Rochester.

THE PSEUDO-LANGUAGE OF. MONKEYS.;: Concerning the supposed language of. anthropoid apes, Professor Boutan has recently taken, up thle question and arrives at a negative result :'It will be remembered that Dr. Garnier came to the conclusion that monkeys. have a language analogou -to human language and express themselves 'bp signs as well as by sounds which they emit. According to Professor Boutan, there is only a diffeienbe of degree be tween this and human speech and not one of kind. He observed the: sounds made by a biggon which he had cap tured when young, and his experi ments cover more than five years. He finds that the animal can produce only spontaneous and instinctive sounds corresponding to a state of satisfac tion or the like, or. again to a state of uneasiness or fear, also great ex citment, and the sounds do not appear to correspond to a real language,;' but rather to what lihe calls pseudo-lan guage."' - While sounds of real Ilan guage are acquired by education, those of...
