NO RAINBOW AFTER DELUGE
Johns Hopkins University Professor
Explains How the Historic Mi
understanding Came About.
The rainbow after the deluge, de
scribed in the book of Genesis 9:13,
was not a rainbow after all, but a
kcollection of great fly-brushes of the
ancient oriental gods, declares Prof.
Paul Haupt of Johns Hopkins univer
sity. Announcement of his discovery
was made by Doctor Haupt at Gouch
er college, at a session of the American
Oriental society, which held its one
hundred and thirty-third conclave in
The mistake in Genesis, said Pro
lessor Haupt, probably is due to a
misunderstanding of a character on
one of the old cuneiform tablets. The
word- is "bow," which could very
easily be mistaken for "fly brush," he
said. These huge feather brushes
were in vogue among the old rulers in
Assyria and Egypt, and were regard
ed as ancient symbols of sovereignty
la the Orient.
According to Doctor Haupt, the an
cients naturally gave their gods credit
for having fly-brushfes, and, in fact, in
Ene 164 of the flood tablet the word
"fly brush" appears as big as life.
The passage sayS that "When Istar
sees the gods gather around the of
3erer like a swarm of flies (because
there had been no offerings during
the flood), she is so incensed that she
takes the great fly-brushes of her fa
thier, Anu (king of the gods), to drive
away the gods."
Britons Have New Telephone.
A new telephonic device already In
aretual use in England is the larynga
phone, a transmitter in which a disk
is placed against the throat of the
speaker and the sound is transmitted
by the vibration of the vocal chords,
says a London dispatch to the New
York Tribune. It is suitable for use
In noisy factories and workroomns
n-here the ordinary telephone mouth
piece transmitter would pick up the

In appearance the laryngaphone re
sembles the ordinary telephone except
that there is a smooth rounded rub
ser disk instead of a mouthpiece. The
,eceiver Is the same and the messages
are received in the ordinary speaking
-Land for Canadian Soldiers.
The forest reserves held by the Ca
adian federal government and all sit
iatedi in the WVest, comprise an area
af approximately 27,50J0.000 acres, and
3onsist of tracts of land unsuitable for
igriculture which have been set apart
germianently for forest production. At
the request of the soldier setlement
board areas totalling about 480,000
.acres were withdrawn from the re
jerves in order to be made available

Nart these areas consist of smanl tracts
of a few hundred acres, withdrawn
from a number of different reserves.

about 240;000 acres from the latter.
Oress and Insurance Rates.
Swiiss women who wear short skirts
and law-necked; gowns wilt have to pay
higher raites of life insurance than
those who do not. The Swiss insurance
eompanies have announced that in fix
rug the premiums on policies of wom
en's lives they will take into considera
tion the women's wearing apparel. The
shorter the skirt or lower the decol
lete; the higher the insurance rate will
The Swiss companies justify this ac
tton on the ground of a great increase
of illness and disease among their
womea Cients which they claim is due
to the wearing of short skirts and low.
