n curious llttlo Insect with such a pe
culiar little effect has novor bef6io
been heard of In tho scientific world.
For several ycaia farmers of Cali
fornia and other sub-tropical part3
of tho United States have been both
ered by tho strango and unaccounta
bio antics of their cattle. Cows were
often prone to tango up a hill or per
form a spirited maxlxe.
Sorvants were unable to explain this
mystifying phenomenon until recently,
'lien it was found that the spinoao car
tick was rcaposlblo.
Tho tick causes a rythmic tapping
In tho ear nnd a sort or syncopation.
It Is covered with unities which are
thin and wiry. Tho air circulating thru
these often results in vnguo melodic
tones. Tho music, combined with the
lagllmc tappings, caused the wild ca
ortings of tho cattle.
Tho "dance bug" has thrived well In
California nnd not only contaminates
cAttle, but poultry and chickens. Last
ly, man has become tho prey of this
evil Insect and several cases have
been reported to I'rofssor Herms.

SURE TRAIN STOP IS SOUGHT
Fortune for Inventor of Device That
Will do the Trick.
Wanted a cock-sure, practical, au
tomatic train stop. An independent for
tune, it is intimnted, awaits the in
ventor who can produce the precise
device that has long been demanded.
In the Investigation of the Am
herst wreck on the New York Cen
tral, and In the report of tho Inter
state Commerce Commission on the
Tew Haven wreck near Milford, Conn,
railroads were urged to develop some
means of stopping trains on signal
without depending upon the engineer.
The device, when worked out, in all
probability will be electrical. It must
exert force sufficient to shut off steam
and throw the air brakes of the loco
motive and be Independent of the
throttle lever in the engineer's cab.
Numberless inventions of signals
which would register in the cab have
been patented, but nothing which
would successfully stop the tialn. The
New York, New Haven & Hartford
Railroad some years ago offered a
prize of 10,000 for the device, but the
iroprletor of a successful automatic
stop would be able to make many
'mes that sum.

"SKIN DUSTING" IS SUCCESS
Chicago Surgeon Discovert New Way
to Supply Cuticle.
Skin grafting may bo revolutionized
by tho nccldoiit.il discovery of a Chi
cago physician, Dr. William Held. Sur
geons aro already calling him tho dis
coverer of "skin dusting."
Doctor Held found it necessary to
sraft skin on tho resultant wound from
an onoratlon for epithelioma, a malig
nant growth In tho thigh of a CO year
old patient. Ho found that tho man's
children, however, wero physically un
able to sacrifice skin, and tho patient's
infection prevented tho transfer of his
own skin from ono part of tho body.
Suddenly tho Idea of a new achieve
ment came to Dr. Held. Ho asked
for a safety razor blado and with it
Ecraped a threo inch surface on the
thigh opposlto tho wound. As tho
"skin dust'' gathered on tho scraping
blado tho physician sprinkled it in
"Islands," over tho open surface ot tho

Doctor Held found a new skin formed.
HUGE MEGAPHONE USED
BY TRAIN ANNOUNCER
Giant Horn In Washington Railway
Station Measures Ten Feet
Across Large Opening
A gigantic megaphone for announc
ing tho arrival and departure of train
at tho Pennsylvania Kallroad's term
inal in Washington, D. C. has been de
veloped to such a degree of success
that sounds emitted by it reach clear
ly to overy corner of the huge station,
despite tho fact that tho announcer is
not required to raise his voice much
higher than an ordinary conversation
Tho megaphone which Is mounted
on a high wooden platform, Is Inter-,
esting, not only because of its gigan
tic proportions for two men could
crawl inside and hide comfortably
but also because it Is the culmination
of a great many painstaking experi
ments. Probably the most Important dis
covery in connection with all the de
vices tried was that a flat horn carries
tsound with fuller volume and less dis
tortion than a round horn of the same
general proportions. Accordingly, a
Luge flat megaphone wns built and a
number of smaller horns were secured
within it, all being controlled by a
single mouth piece. As It now stands
it contains no. inner megaphones.
Lone; iron wires have been attached,
extending from near tho mouthpleco
to beyond the end of the ho t. Their
purpose Is to prevent echoing and to
purify and clarify the sound. Tho
giant megaphone measures tea feet
four inches across the large opening
and eight feet In length.
