Sir Harry Johnston has discovered in
the Semliki forests a mammal which,
in its living form, is entirely new to
science, says the London Times, it
is the size of au ox. and is distinctly
related fo the giraffe. This remarkable
creature, in fact, appears, so far as a
cursory examination of its skin and
skull may guide us, to be a living rep-
resentative of the Hclladotherium, a
creature found in the fossil state in
Greece and Asia Minor and supposed
to be extinct. The Helladotherium
was thought to be a relation of the
giraffe, smaller in size, with shorter
neck, and without any marked devel-
opment of those horn cores which in
the giraffe represent the pedicles from
which, fur back in the history of the
genus, a kind of antler formerly
Sir Harry Johnston has at last se-
cured, through the kindness of the
Belgian authorities at the frontier post

two skulls of this animal, which is
now shown to be not at all a horse,
but a cloven hoofed ruminant of ex-
traordinary coloration and appearance,
which seemingly is either of the ex-
tinct genus Helladotherium, or is some
closely allied creature belonging to
that somewhat vaguely defined group
of which the giraffe Is an exemplar.

Lynching Fad GeU a Check,.
A police official of Connerville,
Pa., is entitled to credit for an in-
teresting and instructive object lesson
in the matter of dealing with lynchers.
When a mob assaulted the town jail
ami demanded their victim early the
Other morning this official resorted to
tactics of his own. As the mob num-
bered about 5,000 he had fairly good
reason for considering himself over-
powered and yielding the keys under 1
force. He might have fired at the !
crowd, which would probably have
hastened the lynching along. Instead
.of threatening the mob, however, he
let it be understood that he recog-
nized his disadvantage, merely re-
marking that while he could not fight
a mob he would take occasion to kill
the first man who broke in. The mob
as a mass was courageous enough to ■
do anything, but as a collection of in- 1
ilividuals it was baffled. However !
many of its members might have been i
willing to be the second man into the i
jail, a natural reluctance to be the '
first made them powerless. The first !
man failing to make known his pres- ■
< lice, the other 4,999 concluded that '
n lynching would not be worth while.
The Connellsville official's example is !
worthy of attention by jailers In com-
munities where lynching is a fad.

will serve, no doubt, for much greater
depths. Scientific men will use these
processes for many researches on the

of steamers have unanimously con-

sou hit upon the precise truth. Amer-
icans used to be In the trans-Atlantic
trade, and would have remained in It
but for circumstances beyond their
control. Those circumstances have

reason why we should not acquire the

So that now, for the first time in the
railway history of the country, a pas-
senger may take train at St. Louis and
remain therein until lie has reached
San Francisco. The route is one of the
most popular because of its great
scenic beauty, anil h-rauee It gives tho
traveler the benefit of variety of al-
titude and climate, taking him across
the smiling plains of Kansas into the
wonderful canyons of Colorado, and
through her most noted mining locali-
ties, and by the great Inland salt sea,
where a great religious organization
has builded a city of magnificence in
an oasis of the desert, and whose po-
litical power has been maintained in
spite of the objections of the concen-
trated power of the United States and
in the face of all the obstacles which
have ever, from the dawn of Christi-
anity, contended against its establish-
ment by any sect or creed.
These places are of great interest to
the traveler of today, and since they
may be visited with such ease in the
magnificent trains of this monster sys-
tem of railway, the tide of tourist traf-
fic is being turned to them by natural
selection. The Missouri Pacific and

"Community of Interest" among the
railroads already benefits the public In
such an everyday way as to convince
