Scouts of Science Seek Strange
Places of the Earth.
American Institutions Spend Vast
Sums in Exploration and Send
Their Men to the Darkest
Spots of the Globe.
New York.-Up on the fifth or office
floor of the American Museum of
Natural History, just opposite the ele
vators, is a bulletin board, on which
are painted fifty or sixty names of
persons actively connected with the
institution, all of them well known
and many of them famous through
out the scientific world. Opposite
each name is a little movable block
of wood which shows whether the
owned is in or out.
Inquiry discloses that some of the
"outs" are not far away, but that
many of them have been absent a
long time; that they are in the lonely t
corners of the earth and that they t
ar: not likely to be in for another e
year or two. These scouts of scienc9e
come and go at long intervals, buit
there are so many of them connected I
with the museum that every month I
or so some one marks his departure a
or arrival on the board. c
As a matter of fact such institu- a
tions as the American Museum of Nat- I
ural History, the Field Museum in a
Chicago, the National Museum at I
Washington, and various European
institutions are doing the largest e
share of the geographic exploration
of the earth just at present. The
plan that each follows is usually the t
First they send out one man alone, j
or two together, to penetrate some I
remote iegion about which nothing is I
known. This is really a scientific
scouting party. The instructions are 1
to move as quickly as possible, but I
to make a thorough survey of the
scientific possibilities of the country.
When the scouts come back and re
port then a large expedition is fitted
out, arrangements being made for it
to stay in the field several years. The
scouts do not accompany this ex
pedition.' They are off on another
reconnoissance in some other distant
part of the world.
Within the last year or so, for in

tory sent E. O. Hovey to the West In

trict of Metico to study volcanoes. It
sent Henry E. Crampton on three ex

islands, and later to British Guiana

RINGWORM SPREAD ON FACE
Campbell, Va.-"I have been trou
bled with ringworm on the right side
of my face for six or eight years. It
began with just very small pimples in
spots and continued to spread more
every year until it covered the right
side of my face. It was red, rough and
in circles, and itched and burned very
much. It was sore when I scratched
my face and it worried me so much I
couldn't keep from scratching. It
16oked very bad; I would hate to go
out while it was on my face. Every
one noticed it and some would ask
what it was.

Correct Answer. "
"This brave man, beloved by all
France, was then buried with full
military honors," a Baltimore boy
read from the lesson, when his name

"What are 'military honors' in this
connection?" the teacher asked, and
several boys seemed to be possessed
of the right idea.
"And what must one be to receive
such honors.' was the next question.
"A general?" "A hero?" "A cap
tain?" were a few of the tentative re
plies. Only the "bright boy" of the
class remained silent.
"Have you no answer, James?" the
teacher suggested, "what must one
"Why, I should say dead, Miss
Mary," was the reply.
A Nice Distinction.
Senator Gronna, discussing a knot
ty tariff problem, said in a speech:
"There is a nice distinction involved
here. You don't notice it at first.
Once it is pointed out to you, however,
you perceive its immense importance.
"It's the sort of discussion that
Gobsa Golde's beautiful young wife
revealed to him during a conjugal
quarrel over a diamond tiara.
"'People say,' quavered the old
man, trembling with roge. 'People
say you married me because I had

"'Rubbish!' she exclaimed. 'My pri
mary reason for marrying you was
that I had no money myself.'"
To prevent Malaria is far better than
to cure it. In malarial countries take a

"When you've been in the show
game as long as I have," replies
Shakespeare, still a bit excited over
the first performance of "Hamlet,"
"you'll know that when the producer
wants a song in a scene, the song
goes in. Besides, this girl that's play
ing Ophelia was a hit in musical
comedy, and the manager argued that
the 'public expected to hear her sing
somewhere in the piece. Let's go

Final and Fatal Question.
Bobby was in an especially tfring
mood, and had asked so many ques
tions as to bring upon himself stern
parental command to be silent. By
and by, however, he so humbly solicit
ed permission to speak thit this was
reluctantly granted. And this was the
time when poor Bobby put his foot
into it with a vengeance.
"I only wanted to ask." he said,
meekly, "what made your hair all

too, when it's ripe?"
