Rays Show The
Passing Of Life
NEW YORK, March 24. A cable
to the Sun from London says: In the
course of a lecture before the Psycho
therapeutic Society Dr. Ward an
nounced that Prrfessor Elmer Gans
of Washington, D. C, who has been
experimenting with light rays, had
found about five octaves above violet
a form of wave similar to X-rays,
but somewhat different. Under
these rays living objects throw a
shadow, which exists an long as there
is life in animate objects. A live rat
was placed in a hermetically seahd
tube and held in the, path of the rays
in front of a seiiulred sereen. So
long as the i at was alive it threw . a
shadow. When It was killed iit be
came suddenly transparent after a
certain length of lime.
"Here," said the lecturer, "there
was a strange phenomenon. At the
very instaut the rat become tran
sparent a shadow of exactly the saore
shape wr.s noticed to, pass, as it were,
out of and beyond the glass tube, and
vanished as it passed upward on the
sensitized screen." S. F. Chronicle.
Caused Bad Fire
Portland, (Or.), March 11. Fire
early this evening destroyed a whole
block of business houses in the suburb
of St. John's, causing a toss of about
$8000,of which $400 was covered by
iisurance. For three hour the fire
department and the citizens fought
the flames, which threatened to de
vastate the entire city, and it was
only by the hardest kind of work that
the fire was confined to the block in
which it originated.
The fire was first discovered in a
vacant building, owned by H. W.
Light, of Salem. It is thought that it
was started by boys smoking cigar
ettes. Within a few minutes after it
broke out in the rear of Die building,
the flame's enveloped the wh ile struc

The heat was so intense that plate

Returns to Port
San Francisco, March 26. The
passengers, officers and crew of the
bark Gerard C. Tobey, Which left
this port on March 14th bound for
Honolulu, are to be congratulated on
the fact that they a ro again safe in
port with a dismantled vessel instead
of being drowned in the terrific gale
which the Tobey encountered on
March 17th, The partially wrecked
vessel w-as sighted by the Point Lobos
lookout shortly before 4 o'clock yes
terday afternoon, and the signal was
given for a tug to go to her aid, as it
was seen that the vessel had lost the
greater part of her mainmast. She
was towed into the stream of Meiggs
wharf, where she dropped anchor
about 10 o'fflock last night.
The Gerard C. Tobey is a well
known vessel in the island trade and
is owned, by Welch & Co. She left
San Francisco on Mirch 14th in
charge of Captain A. H. Scott, with
a general cargo, consisting of railroad
iron, cereals, cement, coal oil and gas
oline. Aside from her officers and
crew of eight sailors there were three
passengers, Mr. and Mrs. A. Cart
wright and daughter of Honolulu, who
were returning to their home. Mate
Ryan's log book tells a tale of disas
ter when the bark encountered ater,
rible gale about noon on March 17th
in north latitude 32 degrees 50 min
utes and west longitude 133 degrees
27 minutes, about 650 miles southwest
of San Francisco.
At noon the sea became so rough
that it was necessary to shorten sail,
and by 4 o'clock in the afternoon the
waves were mountainous. The bark
went on her beam ends, carrying away
the main topmast and the mw top
gallant mast. On the deck were over
100 large iron casks filled with gaso
line, and these became unlashed and
were thrown about the deck until it
became necessary to jettison them in
order to save the pumps. The pumps
were sounded, and it was found that
the vessel had four feet of water in
her hold aud was rapidly filling. The
tanks of gasoline were broken open
aud the decks flowed with the fiery
liquid,' the crew wading about in it
knee-keep. Some of the cargo in the
hold bad to be thrown overboard, and
the crtw worked all night at the
pumps to keep the vessel afloat. The

Tl.e saili r-i were so fatigued from their
efforts that the officers and the male
passengers had to relieve them and
on the return journey the pumps were
almost constantly in use. The legs and
