ODD IDEAS CONCERNING TIDES
Ancients Held Fearful and Wonderful b
Beliefs as to the Cause of
Water's Ebb and Flow.
Aristotle and Heraclitus said the
tides were caused by the sun, which,
whirling the winds about, cause them
to fall with violence on the Atlantic,
which swells and thus causes the tides.
Plato's explanation was that they were '
caused by an animal living in a cavern, h
which through the movement of Its r
mouth caused the tides. Another be d
lief was that the tides were a natural t
movement of the respiration or breath- d
big of the sea. I
There are records of medieval be- t
liefs among the Arabs. Some thought t
that the tides were caused by the 0
moon heating the waters so that they c
swelled up and thus rose higher, while t
others believed they were caused by a
vapors generated in the bowels of the a
earth. Again, others believed they
were caused by the alternate decom- f
position of the sea by the air, and I
then the air by the sea, thus account- s
Ing for the ebb and flow. Still another t
belief was that a great serpent swal- t
lowed and vomited water alternately. ,
Early Cape Cod folk and those in
other districts along the New Eng
land coast believed that people died
at the ebb or flowing out of the tide.
Watchers by the bedside of dying
people firmly believed that one could
not die until the ebb tide began to run.
In Scotland it was fornerly thought
that in setting eggs to hatch one should
set the eggs at flood tide itf one wanted
roosters, and at the ebb tide if one
VIKINGS BURIED WITH SHIPS
Oldtlme Leading Freebeoter of the
Seas Were Appropriately Honored
by Their Followers.
It was one of the ancient Vikingl'
eaustoms to bury their prominent dead
in a ship which was sunk in the earth
and covered with a mound. Within
these burial ships were placed the
choicest belongings, horses, carts or
wagons, sleds, apparel, cooking uten
sils and quite often a living servAnt
accompanied the master to the grave
to minister to his wants in the halls
Only through a fortunate circum
stance are any relics of this kind in
existence, and that is due to the fact
that in several cases the ships were
burled In potters' clay, which Is par
ticularly good for the preservation
of wood. Under ordinary circumstanem
these burial boats have been total
ly destroyed by the dampness of the
earth, only the rotted rivets giving
any clew as to the size of the boats.
- To date only three such boats have
been found that could be recraon
structed; the last one was found qaulte
recently, and It has proved to be the
finest of the three It is known as
the Osebrge ship, being unearthed
in the place of that name, in tie
province of Jarslaberg and Larvik.
The horse looked more like a living
skeleton than a thing of flesh and
blood, and It had scarcely enough
strength to pull the light, ramshackle
cart which trundled behind it. When
the animal began to trot very slowly
after a good deal of practical persua
asion on the part of the driver, a young
hopeful standing in the road could not
let the opportunity pass of planting
himself directly Ia front of the eona
The driver shouted, but the boy r
fused to move.
- "Why can't Pou get out of the
reed?' cried the driver. "Do you
want to be run overT'
Without moving, the lad glanced
contemptuously at the horse, and
shaboated, with withering scorn:
"That boay thinag ran over me? It

ing discussed the fisheries problem r
a from every angl-, but the main object I
. of discussion was the pollution of wa"
e ters by oil burning steamers, through
e which edible fish are being destroyed
t. In all quarters of the globe. New Eng- 1
land and Canada on this side, espo
cially have suffered heavily in fish life
from this cause. It was the consensus
of opinion of the mseting that some
international agreement would have to I
be reached to prevent this destruction, I
which is complained of most "nergeti I
cal.y along the coast of Great Britain. I
MANY FISH KILLED
n BY WATER POLLUTION
J. D. Devillier, a.gent of the Consert
vation Department at Breaux Bridge,
has written to the department that
a rains in he Atchafalaya section have
. destroyed tons of fish of all kinds, par.
a ticularly catfish and buffalo. This
1. damage has not been done in the
great river, but in Lake Bijeau and
. the swamps. Mr. Devillier attributed
it this destruction of the fish to the pois.
eo oning of the water by the water hya.
y cinths, and said there was a stretch of
0e ten miles of dead fish that he could
y not go through with a power boat (pre l
0 sumbaly owing to the stench).
7 E. A. Tulian. superintendent of the
5' fisheries division of the Conservation I
d Department, says while it is not liter.
' ally true that water hyacinths poison
r the water, they do give off a composi
I tion resembling a combination of oils
and acids, and this covers the water
with a thin coating and prevents the
aeration of th° water underneath.
Hence there is not sufficient oxygen to
support fish life. But Mr. Tulian is of
I opinion that the damage was caused
not so much by the water lili3s as by
drouth, by which the water became
d stagnant. Water hyacinths drive fish
d away from the spots in which they
grow, but they do not kill the fish if
there is an avenue of escape. When
an entire body of water is densely coy.
ered by the lilies fish life is driven out
or destroyed by suffocation, but open
spaces in the water supply a harbor
M of refuge for the fish.
EFFECT OF CREVASSE
WATER ON OYSTERS
id Now that the oyster season has fair
ly opened, oyster dealers are begin
ning to feel the effects of the crevasse
water below New Orleans on the hi.
valves. The local supply of oysters
mt has not been disturbed, for theee oys
re ters come mainly from the section
I west aof the river, and the Bayou Cook,
Pour Bayous and Timbalier bay reefs
were not affected. It is oysters from
Sthese sections that ae preferred by
t the local trade. The cannerie, howa
· ever, consume the oysters from the
r "Louislana marsh" and those other
n sections near the mouth of the river
s into which the crevasse water ran. The
l- more remote sections of this marsh
h were not affected, but the destruction
ag of the beds over a considerable extent
of the territory will affect the crop
e used by the canneries. This, e course,
- refers to the canneries near New Or
te loans solely, for the beds furnishling
he the supply to the importaat canneres
a5 at Morgan City and other points tn
d that section did not suffer. New Or
Sleans will consume its usual annual
supply of 400,000 barrels of oysters
this year, as usual, and these oysters
will be the finest in the world, consid.
ad ered much superior for counter con
h sumptlon to the oysters of the Louis
le lana marsh.
SThe fresh water fish season has
ly opened with grmeat promise and an av,
a. erage production during the year is
ng practically assured. Fishermen are
lot actively at work, and the catoh so tar
ag has bean all that could have been rea.
io- sonably expected. The Conservation
Department has irssed more licenses
o to shrimp trawlers sad selners than
usual, and there is a record catch of
he these crustaceans promied durlng the
on season. Last year the oateh reached
the enormous total o( 34,.000,000 pounds
ed and the promise this year is for a pro.
ad duction of about 40.000,000 pounds.

WORLD ON ITS LAST LEGS? a
Why It Is Said Mankind Won't Be
Able to Walk After the Next
I There Is comfort for those cheer
Sless people who believe that the worldi I
Is on Its last legs. Scientists are
backing them up. Doctor Vaughn, I
the health commissioner of Detroit,
asserts that in 10.000 years there will
be no human legs at all.
It is a startling prediction, coming
as it does at a time when the visible
supply of legs is larger and more
beautiful than ever. It seems Incredi
ble that legs should fade out of the
s picture. With what shall generations
of that far future walk? Ah, says
Doctor Vaughn, that's just it; the
race is going to lose its legs because
it doesn't use them any more.
We must remember, observes the
New York World, that Doctor Vaughn
is in a position to be pessimistic. He
' is in Detroit, where almost everybody
f lives on and in motorcars. Infants,
t Instead of being taught to toddle, are
shown how to throw out the clutch,
shift the gears and slip Into first
e speed; that Is, all except the Ford
a babies, who don't have to bother with
r. gear shifting.
a Arms, too, will disappear about the
i. same time that legs depart, unless,
a says Doctor Vaughn, people use their
r arms more for real exertion. Is the
s doctor suggesting that modern folk
are not working hard enough? It
sounds that way. The world needs to
be reminded that unless it keeps its
biceps In order there will be no ten
nls tournaments in a hundred cen
Sturles or so. Without legs, no dane
t lag. Without arms, no baseball. All
h the sports of the distant future will
7 be telepathic. The Babe Ruths of the
period will swat the ball with the bat

Why Britain Values the Bahamas.
The Bahamas are a chain of coral.
I slands generally grouped with the
West Indies. They belong to Great
SBritain. The group ncludes 2
a Islands and 00 islets. but only about
S20 are Inhabited. The coral rock is
1. porous, retaining moisture, hence the
a soil that has accumulated is veryt fer
tile. The islands produce malse, cot
a too, sisal hemp, pineapples, oranges,
lemons, olives, tamarinds, and other
sub-tropleal fruits. Large quantities
of sponges are taken from the sur
rounding seas. The principal exports
are sponges, tfrults and sdsal fiber. To
ematoes are being extensively cult
e rated and shipped to the United States.
Mahogany, lgnum-vitae, muastic, iron
Swood, ebony, boxwood and satinwood
are found throughout the lslands. The
s fiber exported in 1920 had a value ef
Sl about half a amllion dollars.

1 The late Archie L. Williams, ter
many years general attorney for the
8 Union Padef, wasu a chief obltuarlst
* of the Middle West whenever a not

- one occasion he wrote a column or
at more about an old friend who had
ce died and concluaded tt: "Let us pause
u- and on his bler drop a tear." A
Id. drunken printer thought he could in
a. prove it so be set It up: "Let us pause
i, and on his bler drop a tear or two."
The proofreader, also soused, decided
as it was up to him to add something so
. he made It read: "Let as pause and on
is his bier drop a tear or two, or per
Shape three." When the "obit" came
out in the paper that way Archie r
signed as obituarist.
