Darwin infers, as certain, from data which he has adduced, that the Macrauchen, that strange giraffe- necked pachyderm, lived long after the sea was inhabited by its present shells, and when the vegetation of the land could not have been other than it is now.- "The Romance of Natural History, Second Series", Philip Henry Gosse.
Lovers of the beautiful are not to be robbed of " Sit Closer, Friends," nor of " A Poet's Lesson," and many who never heard of that remarkable Spanish pachyderm will take delight in the story of " The Rollicking Mastodon," whose home was " in the trunk of a Tranquil Tree."- "Poems", Arthur Macy.
