Ideal Weather Conditions, a Large List of Entries,
a Good Racing Program and aLar^e Attendance
Contribute to Make the Event Eclipse All Past
Ideal weather was an important factor in assisting to
make the fourth annual fair of the Graud Forks Agricultural
association an unqualified success. The exhibits, however,
were of sufficient merit and volume to have attained this re-t
■suit under less favorable climatic conditions. The sporting
program alone would have attracted a large crowd.
The fair was opened at 1:30 yesterday by President
Clark of the agricultural association. Addresses were made
by Judge Brown, Mayor Fripp, Mayor McLaine of- Greenwood and Mayor Matheson of Phoenix. The s| leakers congratulated the directors of the fair and the prop of the
city and valley on their enterprise in collecting such superb
displays of the products of the district. These exhibits,
they pointed out, could not be surpassed anywhere, and the
citizens had ample cause to feel proud of the resources of
the valley.
The attendance was very large. The local people turned
out well, and the surrounding Boundary towns were better
represented than in former years. |
The exhibits of fruit and vegetables are very complete,
the plate displays of apples, pears, peaches, plums and grapes
being quite numerous. The quality of the fruit, both as regards
size and coloring, is excellent. In the box exhibits there
are fine displays of all the standard varieties grown in the
valley. Thomas Powers' display of five boxes of Wealthies
is the finest specimen of that variety every seen here.
Equally good exhibits of other varieties are made by the
leading orchardists of the valley. All the fruit exhibits are
artically arranged. In the vegetable department, big squashes
and pumpkins, elephantine beets and cabbages, and huge potatoes may be seem, ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
The mining exhibit is on a larger scale than in former
years. The Granby company has a fine display of blister
copper and copper ore. Specimens of ore from all the North
Fork properties, as well as from Fife and Laurier, are also
shown.   In this section local polished marble is exhibited,
Something new this year is an exhibit of hops, made by
Frache Bros. C. C. Heaven and H. S. Broad have displays
campeting for a prize for the best display from one ranch. C,
Hesse has a vegetable exhibit entered for the Burns special
prize. Another new feature this year is an excellent display
Mrs. A. S. McKim of apple products, entered for a special
prize. The articles of food made out of the apple appear to
be sufficiently numerous to fill a good-sized menu card. Mrs.
H. W. Collins also has a similar exhibit.
The poultry exhiqit, as usual, is exceptionally good.
There is also a fine display of eggs.

in the pains the merchants have
taken in decorating tbeir store windows fair days. The most striking
and original designs may be seen at

knew him better nor valued bis
friendship more tban Tbe Sun man,
and it iB therefore with profound
sorrow that we record tbe fact of
his passing Concerning his career,
the Vancouver Sun says, editorially:
"Among newspapermen throughout Canada there will be a feeling
of deep regret at tbe news of tbe
death, which occurred early yeeter-
d y morning, of Mr. W.'A. Harkin.
Among working journalists in tbis
country none was better known,
perhaps none was so well known
throughout the Dominion as Mr.
Harkin, and certainly none possessed a gie iter number of - friends
among the members of tbe craft.
Fur upwards of thirty years be followed his profession and died con
stderably sbort of fifty years of age.
His career, except for two years on
tbe staff of tbe New York Times and
brief period in Chicago, on the
Tribune, was confined to Canada,
and in this country be filled many
important positions, both in the east
and west. His forte lay in correspondent and it is doubtful if he
bad, in this department of work,
any equal in tbis country or any superior oft tbe continent. His tbor
ough intimacy with the political
and industrial history of tbe Dominion, bis comprehensive and sane
gr»sp of affairs and his wide acquaintance witb the prominent men
of the country, together with his
aptitude for bringing situations and
facts before his readers, vividly and
interestingly, made him an invaluable workman in tbe newspaper
world. HiB genius in this respect
was recognized by men of affairs,
for many of whom, among tbem
some of tbe foremost of tbose we call
captains of industry, be performed
legitimate services of great value in
tbe pursuit of his chosen calling.
. "Personally he was a man of a
most lovable nature, modest and unassuming. HiB loyalty to his friends
and his fidelity to a higb code of so
eial and professional ethics will keep
his memory fresb witb tbose wbo
knew him well, while tbey live."
Tbe late Mr. Harkin, who came
to the west many years ago, was at
one time city editor of tbe Montreal
Star and was associated with lhe
Ottawa Jsurnal when it was started.
He really Biarted bis newspapei
career when he was sent to cover
the Riel rebellion for the Star After
yeara of service on that paper he
went inio the "mining game" in
Rossland, where he was also con
nected with journalism. From
Rossland he came to Grand Forks,
and he remained bere until 1907,
wben be went to Vancouver, and
since tbat time be bas been engaged
in newspaper work in that city. A
recent biographical sketch by him
on Sir Charles Tupper has aroused
interest both in Canada and the old

A New Motor Plow
An English firm has made a new
plow tbat is propelled by a four-
horsepower gasoline motor. It is
much like the ordinary horse-drawn
implement, and can be used for any
of the ordinary agricultural tasks,
Btich as plowing, cultivating, scuffling, skinning, hoeing and drilling.
As it is only three ft high and two ft
four inches wide, it can be used in
places where horses can not work,
between fruit trees in orchards, in
vineyards and hop gardens, and in
rubber, tea and coffee plantation.
Unlike other motor plows, it has
only two driven road wheels, and
the attendant who walks behind it
runs the engine and guides the plow
by means of star wheels. With one
wneel running in a furrow, the plow
virtually steers itself, and needs little attention excep at tbe end of
tbe furrows. Tbe makers assert that
the machine will do nearly twice as
much work a day as a horse drawn
plow, at about one-half the cost an
acre. Thn correctness of the assertion naturally depends somewhat
upon the nature of the land on
which the machine is set to work.
W. J. Galipeau commenced work
today on the cement sidewalk
around the new post oflice building.

Championship of United States
Shooting against a field of more than
three score of the leading 'shorfarms'
marksmen of the country, Peter J.
Dolfen, of Springfield, Mass.,-registered the winning score of 469 Out of
a possible 500, the second highest
score made In thirteen consecutive
years In this event, and became champion revolver shot of the United
States. The contest for the champ
lonship was designated as Match 'A*
In the United States Revolver Association's League and waa
participated in by menibeis of- revolver clubs In several large cities between the .wu oceans. The shooting
was conducted under the management
ol U.S.R.A. officials on the ranges of
the various clubs and the ta'getB for
warded to the Association's headquarters at Washington, D.C., for the fin-
al decisions.
Fifty shots were fired at 20 yards on
tbe standard American target by each
contestant, Mr. Dolfen shooting Remington-UMC metallic cartridges in
making his exceptionally high score.
The retiring title holder Is Dr. J. R.
Hlcks, who made 463 out of 600 at.6
fell into third place.
The new revolver champion is a possibility who has beeu looming large
on the horizon of the sport for some
time. Mr. Dolfen Is a consistent
maker of remarkable targets In his
work on the Springfield teams. Last
year he was made one of the American
contenders f..r world's championship
honoi-B at the Olympic Games at
t ockholm, and ln competitU... with the
picked s'totB of many countries won
second place in tbe individual pistol
match with 474 out ot a possible 600,
this score being exceeded only by A.
P. Lane, another membti of the
American team who, shooting Remlng-
ton-UMC ammunition, won the event
with 499 out ot 600, establishing a new

"For fifteen years I was a sufferer
from dyspepsia. I confess that an
improperly regulated diet was the
chief cause of my suffering. Finally
nothing that I ate seemed to agree
with my stomach, and life, at times,
did not seem worth living
"I began to take a pessimistic view
ot everything and see life through
dark blue glass, so to speak. My
head became affected with a heavy
creeping sensation and I feared paralysis.
"Palpitation ot the heart caused -
me to fear thnt I might die suddenly.
Two years ago, hearing Grape-Nuts
so highly spoken of by some estimable friends of mine, I determined to
try it.

It ls always better to prevent serious diseases of tbe nerves. There are

Ths Scientific Farming of ths Woodlot
."There ts no P-trt of the farm which
WlU give bigger returns for so llttlo
expenditure of time and labor as tha
woodlot." This statement in the
July number of the Canadian Forestry Journal, 1. made by Mr. B. R.
Morton, B. Sc. F., the sllvical expert
who ts engaged by the Forestry
Branch at Ottawa to demonstrate to
tbe woodland owners of eastern Canada just how these btge-er returns may
be achieved. But lt It is not possible to obtain such expert advice, there
arc yet three ways ln which the farmer, by the exercise of ordinary common sense, can vastly Improve the
composition, production and reproduction of his woodlot.
Tin flrst thing necessary ls to Improve the cha-.acter ot the crop,
which can be done by cutting down
and using for fire-wood all diseased
and deformed trees, as well as such
species whose presence In the wood-
lot ls not desirable. Only too frequently ls the method of cutting exactly the reverse. Ths best trees are
cut, often for purposes for which an
Inferior, wood would serve, and the
poorer species are left seed-In the cut-
over areas and to gradually crowd out
the better varieties. Before cutting,
the farmer should consider flrst the
use to which the wood ls to be put,
and second, the species-composition ot
the woodlot which ls most desirable.
Firewood probably yields the best
returns for a small acreage and for
this purpose rapid-growers such as
poplar, ash and elm should be encouraged, which should make an annual
growth ot from one-halt to one cord
per acre. Basswood too, will be In
Increasing demand because of Its rapid
growth, because lt coppices readily
and because ot Its value ln small sizes
for the manufacture of excelsior, cooperage stock and other small articles
for whicli the wood is particularly
adapted, Maple reproduces readily,
and although not a rapid grower, lt
nevertheless yields a substantial revenue when It becomes large enough to
tap. Soft woods like spruce, balsam and -.me grow much more rap-
Idly tban hardwoods and might be
advantageously grown for fuel or pulpwood.
When the most suitable species have
been selected and the weed-trees removed, the woodlot must then be thinned until the crowns of the best-formed remaining trees are seen to barely
toucb. An acre can only produce a
given amount ot wood each year and
tha fewer trees there are to share
this yearly Increment, and yet fully
utilize the crown space, the more rap-
Id will be the growth of these trees.
The third requisite In the scientific
farming of the woodlot, is that the
cattle be kept out, especially atter
heavy cutting, when reproduction Is
most dctittd. Cattle are Just as Injurious to a young crop ot tree-seedlings as they are to a young crop of
grain. They may Indeed eat the
grass In the woodlot, but they would
Just as soon, lf not sooner, eat the
young and tender hardwood shoots,
and the same can be said of sheep.
Even coniferous seedlings are not immune to that certainty In reproduction
ts only assured by fencing off the cut-
over areas. Dr. Fernow predicts that
"There will be a time when tha wood-
lot will sell the farm or will, be a necessary part of the farm to make lt
valuable. In the seasons when hit
other work slackens the farmer could
very easily Improve his woodlot In anticipation of this tlmi of increased
wood values.

Impure, and Dr. Williams' Pink PIUs
are the tonic to use during convalescence. When the blood is poor and
thin tho stomach suffers. The food
ferments, gas and certain acids form
and tht trouble ls pronounced Indigestion or dyspepsia. Tho nerves reoelve from tbe blood all of their nourishment to keep up their energy and
repair waste or damage. Some forma
of paralysis are caused by thin blood.
The progress of locomotor ataxia ls
stopped In many cases when the blood
ts made pure, rich and red. Tbls ls
only a partial list of the troubles having their origin in Impure, watery
blood, and aU can be cured by supplying the blood with Its missing constituents.
This la exactly what Dr. Williams'
Pink PIUs do. Their chief mission
It to make rich, red blood, and tbls

Roadways Appropriations
The Vancouver organ of tbe provincial government says very truly
tbat no other country in the world
witb the same population is spending so much money in highways as
British Columbia and lhat no other
country has so much yet to be done
to mnke the natural resources avail
able. It did not tell its readers,
however, that the chief purpose of
this large expenditure was not to
open up the province to settlement,
but to provide jobs for innumerable
hanger* on, wh i<e votes and influence keep the government in office.
Had the road grants of the pas ten
years heen honestly applied British
Columbia would today havethe heit

Cheerful View of Business
Situation ,
Mr. W. H. Rowley, president ot
the E. B. Eddy Company, wit-i twenty fire or more branches la Canada,
with resident agents la every largo
city from Halifax to Victoria, and with
sixteen or eighteen thousand customers and correspondents la this country, takes a very cheerful view of th*
business situation.
Mr. Rowley told Ths World yester-
terday that their business throughout
Canada was better during the first halt
of 1913 than for the same "Period ot
1912, that ls, sales were greater, although profits are less. Larger sales
show Increased consumption: smaller
profits Indicate greater cost ot material, higher wages and cut prices by
senseless rivalry.
The chief channel of the distribution of Eddy's wares Is through ths
wholesale grocery and Jobbing trades.
Until a few weeks ago, buying was
done with great caution and only for
Immediate need.; now, however, there
is less feeling of anxiety than earlier
ln the year and since the middle of
June business ls flowing more freely
and goods are more la demand.
Correspondence from every city ln
Canada shows that business lu atl
lines Is becoming stronger and healthier. The 'hand to mouth' buying ot
a few weeks ago ls succeeded by unusual midsummer activity because the
wholesaler's stocks got low, the retailer's shelves were bare, but uow
there ls a better, suror and .nore easy
feeling among buyers; and taa neces-
si'ies of life, such as matches, buckets, tubs, paper bags and paper of all
kinds are In good demand for dally

One for Mathematician
A noted mathematician, considered
by many a wonder, stopped at a hotel
in n small town in the English provinces. There were a number of
travelers staying there aud there was
nlso a gathering of medlca! men. One
of the doctors thought it would be a
joko to tell the mathematician that
bome of the M.D.'s had decided to kidnap him and take out his brains to
learn how It was he waa so good ln
mathematics. He was then asked by
them what lie was going to do about
it. He replied: Why, I shall simply
go on without brains just as you doctors are doing.
A Bouquet
A poetical old shopkeeper was al-
ways doing kind things aud saying
lovely ones. One spring he was having his shop repainted. He told the
painter to leave a certain corner untouched for the time being; he explained that the young people, at that season did all their courting there aal
he didn't want them to get smudged.
But, objected   the   painter,   these
young folks would be   tools   not   to
| know the smell ot fresh paint.
Young fellow, said the old shop,
keeper, you have never had a girl,
that's plain. If you had, you'd know
that when folks are In love, everything

Melville, having worked bis wa;
through college and received a legacy
at {SOO a few days after graduation,
concluded to spend tbe money ln a

Hfe work. To take the outing on so

proposed to do a good deal of walking.

Rut Melville's curiosity wns especial-

lady wore upon ber bosom-n stickpin,

It was not lu ber necltwenr, lint stuck
In ber dram directly over ber real flesh

Melville bud Intended to walk eastward around tbe norih bnnk of Lake

making it pnrt of the Journey blmself

Tbere Is n quick telegraphy between
two young persons of opposite sez, and
very little time wns required for tb*
• girl to perceive tiint Melville bnd especially   noticed   bur.    He  spoke some
Kugllsb words with bis American accent lu her heming, nud this mnde ber
swaro that he wns a fellow country-
[ man.   Ue  scraped   au   acquaintance
wltb ber father, hoping tbat It mlgbt

but In tbls ke wns for the tlmo dlsnp-
l pointed.   Wben the bost rent-lied- Lou-

I fret tbnt lo must leave the object of

tbe next day he walked to Mon-
I Ireux, and the flrst person be saw on
(the piazza of the botel as be mounted

I Uelvllle thnt he saw In hers that re-
I vengeful look he lind noticed, tbougb it
I suddenly gave place to one which be
[ could only account for as an Invitation
I for blm to seek an acquaintance.
Sucb Impressions are usually vague
I and readily give place to others. Of
lthe two mentioned Melville remember-
led only tbe latter. He was by no
[means sure of bis Interpretation, but
lbe proposed to act upou It at tbe first
I opportunity. Trom tbe botel register
lbe learned that tbe family nam* tas
I Huntington." Melville again addressed
[the rather and found a bond of fellow-
[tblp In tbnt tbey wer* graduates ot lb*
I lame university.  Thus followed tu in
troduction to tne inidiiy.
Alum llucti-gton on learning tbst
Melvllje wns fond of walking sympathized wltb bim, telling him thst sh*
was devoted to It herself. Throwing
•side conventionality, sbe accepted Invitations to go about wltb blm freely,
unaccompanied by s chaperon. Melville found an additional feature tn th*
puzzle Id nn evident dlsapprovsl on
ibe part of Mrs. Huntington of bis at-
lentlons to her dsugbter. Tbls disapproval did not appear to result from
nny antagonism to him personslly, nor
.Id tbe Isdy appear to blsme him for
the growing Intimacy witb bsr daughter.' It wu plain from the mother's
treatment of him that ahe wss holding
Alma solely accountable for lt
lt was also plain that Alma was bent j
on following ber own Inclinations.
Wben she suggested a morning walk
witb Melville to Vllleneuve and back
or- sn excursion on the lake her moth
er would look pained ratber tbsn sn
gered, and wben her efforts to indues
ber daughter to desist met with 11)
success tbe good Isdy would sigh si
one much troubled. '
What all tbis meant Melville wss a*
a loss to discover. Tbere was evident
ly something bsck of It of wblcb bt
was unaware. Tbe young lady wss
evidently bent on an affair Witb blm,
and ber mother was trying to dissuade
ber. Had tbe girl really become attached to blm? He did not believe
that she bsd. Her interest lu blm had
come too suddenly and developed too
quickly. Now and again, wbile rest-
ing on tbelr walks, turning his eyes
upon hers, be would catch ber looking
It him with a singular glance tbat bt
could not Interpret Tben sbe would
arise, and as tbey strolled on would,
pnt her arm through bis confidingly.
Tbe Huntlngtons lingered at Mon
Ireux, and Melville lingered too. Alma
was pleased to remain, and sbe apparently dominated ber family. Foi
Melville there was something so curiously fascinating about ber tbat be
could not tear blmself away. And
•very day tbat fascination grew strong-
er. He wished that be dare ask her to
solve the mystery hanging about ber,
but something ln ber manner, he knew
not what prevented blm. Once be
ventured to refer to the garnet heart,
but sbe gave blm a look so strange,
to forbidding, tbnt be stumbled tn bit
speechrtnd was silent
At lost Melville, seeing tbat his attentions, or ratber Alum's encouragement of bis attentions, wns producing
something tbat looked like discord in
the Huntington family, resolved to de-
part He announced his Intention tt
Mrt. Huntington before speaking of It
to Alms, the mother appeared grateful to bim.
Wben he announced bis Intention to
depart to Alms tbey were standing on
sn eminence overlooking tbe lake.
"Clear, placid Lemsn," as Byron bat
described lt. its bosom dotted with various kinds of craft, was spread out before tbem, and tbe view had its effect
on Melville. He did not wish to lest*
tbe girl wbo In so short a time bad become so mucb to blm. She did not
hesitate to dissuade blm from bis pup
pose, and she was aided by tbelr beautiful surroundings. After a long alienee between them, during wblcb sb*
was waiting for bis decision, he said:
"I will remain on one condition. I
love you; assure me tbat my love ls
As he spoke the words be turned snd
faced; ber. A struggle was going on
within ber. but what that struggle wat
be could not tell. Sbe put ber. bands
to ber face to conceal it from blm. He
waited for ber emotion to pass. At
last sbe took away ber bands, snd,
looking into bis fsce with an expression entirely changed from tbat seeming revengeful spirit be, bad at times
noticed, she drew tbe garnet pin from
ber bosom and fixed lt In bis scarf.
No words passed between tbem, only
a caress. Then she added, "Go to mother; tell ber what has occurred and sbe
will explain wbat bas naturally been
a puzzle to yoa," S
Wbeu Melville told Mrs. Huntington
tbat be bnd captured tbo garnet heart
sbe gave a deep drawn slgb ot relief.
"Tou have broken a spell, Mr, Mel*
ville," sbe snid to him, "that 1 am very
happy bas been broken. When Alms
wss passing from childhood to womanhood she met one of those young men
wbo consider a girl's heart a tblng to

excusable oo account of his youth; In
mnny esses such flirtations are Innocent But Alma Is a girl of deep feeling. Wben sbe discovered thnt wbst
was an absorbing passion to ber wat
a mere matter of amusement to tb*
mon sbe loved sbe was so far broken
down tbst we at one time feared for
her reason. Her lore was turned to
hatred, not only of tbe man who put
no value upon lt, but of all men.
"Not.long after tbls 1 noticed tbo garnet heart on ber bosom. Sbe never
explained Its meaning to me, but I

Melville accompanied tbe Hunting-
tons ln their tour, wbich they adapted
to bis requirements. Indeed, they
were making tt entirely on account of
the daughter tbey idolized. Melville
was too deeply ln love to blame ber.
for ber past unreasoning desire to
punish blm for tbe fault ot another.
Indeed, tbe fact tbat be bad succeeded
like a knlgbt of old In slaying tb*
dragon and winning tb* Imprisoned

Mrs. Melville Is now a young matron

the Interesting fact that u concussion
or blow from u sandbag will erase and
drive from tbe brain or tbe memory

three to five hours previous to tbe concussion, but will not disturb the Impressions ou the mind of previous occurrences. The author describes tbe
effectiveness of this knowledge In securing complete confessions from "self

Hume, ut that time chief detective for
Wells, Fnrgo & Co.. und he forced n

Curious Sacred Symol That Hat En
dured for 8,000 Yeart. |
The scarab, Uke the swastika, is a. j
example of  the   curious   persistenci i
with which certain forms ol symbol
ism have held the popular Imaginatiot
and endured from the earliest timet !
down to the present day.    It, is not.
■used as a decoration for clasps and
buckles and also as part ol a head,
dress or fastening for cloak or gown,
with the peculiar oval beetle worked
either in beads, enamel or metal.
The use oi thy scarab as an emblem
of the ancient Egyptian religion cat
be traced as far back as 6,000 B.O.
It was, in fact, commonly employed
in connection with religious observances, archaeologists being ol tin
opinion that when strung together is
numbers, ss found on ancient monuments and in papyri, they represented
the rosaries used by worshipers In
The practically invariable presence
of the scarab among the wrappings ol
mummies and in the decoration ol
-mummy cases points to its having
been regarded by the ancient, Egyptians as an emblem of resurrection.
This symbolic interpretation is, in
fact, connected with the old belief
that beetles arose from the dead, a
belief whicli doubtless owes its origin
to the habit of these insects of rolling
their eggs in balls of sand, so thai
when the young are hatched they have
the appearance of issuing unaided
from the earth. Scarabs (ound in
tombs usually bear some inscription
from the Egyptian "Book ol tin
Dead," referring to the exchange of an
old heart for a new. Hence arose, no
doubt, the custom of placing scarabs
over the heart of a dead person, the
preservation of whose body they were
supposed to secure. In many cases
the heart was removed altogether
when the body was embalmed, and
was then replaced by a scarab.
The earliest scarabs were (ormed of
soft stone; later examples were made
of pottery or engraved on pieces of
hard granite. In color tl.ey either resembled lhat of the green Egyptian
oockebafter or were of that fine, deep
blue to characteristic of Egyptian pottery beads. The back is always in ths
form of the sacred beetle and the fiat
bate is engraved in various' ways, ac.
cording to the period to which the
scarab belongs. Some bear the nsmee
cf Egyptian Kings, while others art
engraved with the portraits (isthei
impretsionistio in style I) of Queen,
and various royal personages. Amen,
hoteo III. was accustomed to issue hit
royal edicts on the face of enormous
Fcarabs, especially constructed for the
nurnose, and smaller ones were used
by him as gilts or to convey to friends
the assurance ol his good feeling.
The meaning of those peculiar spiral
decorations which so olten appear on
scarabs as well as on ancient eastern
monuments, such at Cleopatra's
Needle, hss been entirely lost sight of,
but thst sll snch devices hsd a specifio
meaning, however obscure, has been
well established by antiquarian research.
During the thiird century B.C.
scarabs were frequently fashioned
from gold and precious stones, and
the fact that tliey were wrought in
certain fixed sizes seems to point to
the (act that they represented money
values and were employed as a medium of exchange. But for whatever
purpose they were used, their mysteriously sacred character always remain-
ed, and this has endured wherever
they are fouud, without regard to cen.
tury cr tc country.
The Quetn't Gown.
Brilllfflit though the dresses were at
their Majesties' fourth court, that
worn by Queen Mary outthone them
all. Her Majesty appeared in gold,
her gown being ol Indian gold brocade, with a colored (lower design interwoven, and an embroidered panel
of colored diamonds, the train being
of Irish lace lined with sold tissue.
As one courtier put it. "Her Majesty
was a picture of magnificence."

Etiphantt Rsrtly Sleep.
It is doubled whether, in the wild
state, elephants ever lie down. Gordon Gumming thought he had lound
evidence in marks upon thc ground
that the adult bulls did stretch themselves out at full length for a few
hours' rest at about midnight, but he
contended that the young and the
cows slways remained on their feet.
Another authority, Selous, has expressed doubt whether even the old
bulls lie down. He tells of on. herd
that was known to hsve kept moving
and feeding throughout 24 hours.
"Except when rolling in mud snd
water," ho says, "it is likely lhat au
African elephant never lies down io
its whole tile."
