MARVELOUS  FEATS  OF  ROYAL   ATHLETES.  A    story  which  was told   a short  time ago  in  thc Spanish  newspaper  1.01  Correo, furnishes a striking illus-  t ration of the strength of human nuis  cles.  vFermini  Amdi,  a Spa-nisli giant  famous for his stature and strength,  was hunting in Pyrenees when* he encountered  on   his way  home  a gigantic   hear,    which came toward him  erect,   with   forepaws   outstretched.  Aru-di's rifle  was  not loaded     and  he feared to break it by using     the  butt    end  upon  his   adversary.    He  put  thc  rifledown upon the  ground,  and,  going straight  up to   the hear,  dexterously grappled  it in his.powerful, arms- Hunccr  and  animal rolled  over in  a terrible struggle   until  Ar-  ndi    succeeded   in drawing  his knife  and    despatching   t'he bear,    which  weighed  3ilfl   pounds.   Then   he  placed  it   across his  shoulders and  returned  The new     bridge being built across  Seymour Creek in the Municipality of  now remains is amass o** wreckage.    J greatly benefit.  than three-quarters  of a ton;       and  when he came to a turnpike gate he  would playfully heave his horse over  it instead of.troubling the |ate-kccp-  er to  open it for him.  lie    snapped    a rope   which     had  borne a ton weight without breaking:  luted with Ins teeth an oak tapie two  yards long,  with a 58 pound weight  at    the    other end  of it,  and broke  broomsticks by striking them against  his bare arm.    He would take a mas  si\e pewter dish, seven pounds      in  weight, and roll it up as if it were a  cup  in  his finger*, as easily  as   most  men    would  break an egg shell, and  wave a couple of hundred-weights over    his   head   with   his  little  finger.  Once    he    twisted    a kitchen     spit  around the     neck of, an imper-tinant  hostler,     and he could, smash      the  toughest     cocoanut    by     striking it  against  his ear.  Such  performances   of professional  strong  men are  sufficiently startling  but there have been great kings who  could rival some of them.   Thus Augustus  the Strong of  .Saxony,       in  his playful moods would seize a couple of courtiers,  one  in each  hand,  and hold  them   out at arms'   length;  he would      twist    stout   iron  bars  around their  necks for   collars     and  straighten  horseshoes   with  a wrench  of his  muscular  fingers;  while,       on  one  occasion,   when   the horse  of one  of his   attendants   refused'to   budge,  he   put his  hcrculen   shoulders   under  it and walked  away with horse and  rider together.  George  Castriat, Prince  of  Albania,      wielded such a powerful sword  that he could sever a bull's head at  a single  stroke;   while  once,   for     a  wager, he walked off with, ten of his  courtiers'    standing   on  a platform.  Charlemange, who was reputed to bo  the strongest  man of his time,    was  able to snap the strongest horseshoe  between the fingers of one hand; and  wilh.it  to his  native town.  Such a feat  as this, however,  won- Don  Sebastian,   merely by the pres  derful  as it seems,   would   not have   sure of his knees,  could  make  heen    thought   much of   by   Charles   charger groan with pain,        _  his ������������������j*.

A-CONCLAVE OF BIRDS  *>  It is generally supposed that man  only possesses the gift of speech;  tins supposition, however, must apparently bc accepted in only a limited sense, for thcie can he no question tliat some animals and birds  have the facnty of con-tmuiiicaUiig  intelligibly with other; though pro-  ba'liy in such a rudimentary degree  1hat perhaps the term speech is a  misnomer. Amongst the -most remarkable evidence of this is the  court ot justice held by rooks which  may occasionally bc witnessed.(The  writer can hear testimony to the  first stage of these extraordinary ses  sions, which he witnessed from a  train, though unfortunately he did  not see it strange, and perhaps  tragic, termination.)  A large flock of several hundred  rooks forms a great circle two or  three deep, almost perfect in shape,  a,nd perhaps about 300 feet in circumference. In the centre of the circle stands a solitary rook, attended  by a guard���������this "latter, however, thc  writer did not sec���������appearing in an  .abjectly cowed and frightened condition. The whole of the birds sur-  roi nding thc wretched, motionless  culprit were in a most excited state  wo'cnfJy Happing their wui-gs as if ai  a paio.\j-siu of wrath and fury, and  fiom tune to time raising then-beaks  upward, though they all retained  (heir position -n the ring, and made  no atiompt to interfere with thc miserable prisoner.  Probably thc accusing bird* had recounted the offence committed agamst  it, perhaps the appropriation of thc  nest occupied by it and its mate for  years, pcihaps an insult oli'ercd lo  her, Oil* peihars some more serioui  offence committed against thc community.  Now all this excited and angry  scene must indicate that thc birds  ��������� possess some means or commnuucating  their ideas to each other, and that  all tliat violent cawing cannot be  mere unintelligible   jargon.  agf^atcoatI  jW MOD IUK SIT .JIT  i  ON   SATURDAY, SEPT. 30TH.
