a curlouB little Insect with such a pe
culiar little pffect has never hefbro
heen heard of in tho scientific world.
Kor several ycais farmers of Call I
fjrnla and other sub-tropical parts
of tho United Stales have been both
ered by tho strange and unaccounta
ble antics of their cattle. Cows wero
often prone to tango up a hill or per
form a spirited maxlxe.
Servants were unable to explain this
uiystlfylng phenomenon until recontly,
'-'hen it was found that the splnoso car
tick was resposiblo.
Tho tick causes a rythmic tapping
in tho ear and a sort or syncopation.
Jt is covered with spines which are
thin and wiry. Tho air circulating thru
these often results in vaguo melodic
tones. The music, combined with the
lagtlmc tappings, caused the wild cav
01 tings of tho cattle.
Tho "dance bug" lias thrived well In
California and not only contaminates
cfittle, but poultry and chickens. Last
ly, man lias become the prey of this
evil insect and several cases have
been reported to I'rofssor Ilerms.

8URE 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 intimated, 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 Mlltord, Conn,
railroads were urged to develop some
means ot 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 ot the
throttle lever In the engineer's cab.
Numberless Inventions of signals
which would register In the cab have
been patented, but nothing which
-vould successfully stop the tialn. The
New York, New Haven & Hartford
Railroad some years ago offered a
prize of $10,000 tor the device, but the
.roprletor of a successful automatic
stop would be able to make many
'mes that sum.

"SKIN DUSTING" IS SUCCESS
Chicago Surgeon Discovers New Way
to Supply Cutlclo.
Skin grafting may bo revolutionized
by tho accidental dlscovory of a Chi
cago physlclnn, Dr. William Held. Sur
geons aro already calling him tho dis
coverer of "sltln dusting."
Doctor Hold found it necessary to
j,raft skin on tho resultant wound from
an oporatlon for epithelioma, n 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 proventcd tho transfer of his
own skin from one part of tho body.
Suddenly tho idea of a now achieve
ment camo 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 the physician sprinkled It In
"Islands," over tho open surface of tho

HUGE MEGAPHONE USED
BY TRAIN ANNOUNCER
Giant Horn In Washington Railway
Station Measures Ten Feet
Across Large Opening
A gigantic megaphone for announc
ing the arrival and departure of train
at tho Pennsylvania Itallroad'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 every corner of the huge station,
despite tho fact that the announcer Is
not required to raise his voice much
higher than an ordinary conversation
The megaphone which is mounted
on a high wooden platform, la 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 tho most important dis
covery in connection with all the de
vices tried was that a flat horn carries,
sound with fuller volume and less dis
tortion than a round horn of the same
general proportions. Accordingly, a
Luge flat megaphone was 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.
Lont; iron wires have been attached,
extending from near the mouthpleco
to beyond the end of the ho i. Their
purpose is to prevent echoing and to
purify and clarify the sound. Tho
giant megaphone measures ten feet
four inches across the large opening
and eight feet in length.
