A Freeh Witesme to the Tradition of the fS
Deluge - Professor HIopt ao Prub
lished the Fresmeote of abe Wooderful
stery Preserved in the British Mneous. th
Many readers would, I believe, be fe
interested in a fresh witness to the ;
Chaldean tradition of the deluge, et
writes a correspondent of the London ru
Times. The best known account of 4i
this tradition is contained in the late st
George Smith's "Chaldcan Genesis." te
There was given the first conneccted po
account of the Assyrian version of the PT
old Babylonian myths concerning the n,
flood. This version has been drawn in
up for the library of Ashurbanipal, the be
last great King of Assyria, and has ax
been brought by Sir Henry Layard
from the ruins of Nineveh. A more as
complete edition, consisting of all the to
fragments of the story, preserved in ey
the British Museum, has been pub- de
lished by Prof. Haupt. t
Unfortunately, the lines which once to
recorded the dimensions of the ark nc
are defective, and though Prof. Haupt cc
considers it probable that the length Ci
was 100 cubits, while the breadth and na
height were both 120 cubits, we have it
no certainty about the length. By as- fl
suming that the meadsure named in the fo
text really denotes a half cubit, as was m
once held by Prof. Oppert, the conjec- pt
tured length would agree with the hi
300 cubits of the Biblical narrative. sr
Now one of the tablets, probably sl
also once in King Ashurbanipal's li
brary at Nineveh, appears to give a ol
different estimate of the dimensions of u!
Noah's ark. It is catalogued as "a it
list of animals and certain measure- it
ments" &c, and was recently copied e:
by me for my "Assyrian Deeds and a
Documents," where the cuneiform text tl
will appear as No. 777. A closer ex- a;
amination of the contents has made sa
me think they deserve to be more el
widely known. '
There is no distinct statement on p
the tablet that the measurements re- n
fer to the, ark, but I fail to see with fl
what else the figures given could be b
concerned. The first three lines read a
simply, "290 cubits long, 150 cubits s
broad. G,0 cubits high." The whole a
tabl',t is written in the ideographic s
style, and some of the ideograms used k
are not to be found in published "lists
of sigi3 and ideograms." But these t
lines only employ such signs as are }
well known from their use in the his- a
turi:, inscriptions, and I assign to f
then 1, i meanings which they always 6
hav , is: such text:; as concern the di- t
Pfnsl'ions of buildings.
Ilut this would be a very large
lul:ilinw: indeed. The great Temple of 1
SM3erod.rch 'at Rabylon, by maye;; identi- I
lied with the Tower of Babel. was only
180 cubits high. If we consider these
dimensions as those of a tower it must f
have been nearly 1i),0 feet high. Such
a height could only be that of a moun- 1
I tin. Then it would bo difficult to ac- 1
count for the presence of the animals 1
1 recorded below. There were no ani
n:;'s kept in the Tower of Babel, so
far as t-e are toll. The animals
whose names can be recognized are
r nt su!ch as we hate any reasron to
S.!: ~so were kept by the kings of
Nrev!,eh in a menagerie or zoological
gard ane.
The mythical character of the build
d ing seems evident. The next two
II lines give other dimensions in precise
ly similar terms to those used in de
scribing the terraces or palaces. In
telpretlng the signs in the same way
as is always done in such cases, the
substructure of this strange building
was 410 cubits across and 788 cubits
along its side. There Is no sugges
tion of height.
Now, the Ninevite version of the
Chaldean tradition, above referred to
contemplates the ark as a "house" on
a "boat" or raft. It may .be ques
tioned whether in these texts "height"
Snecessarily means "vertical height."
y If not. we may suppose a boat 788
cubits in length over all and 410 cu
bits in breadth amidships, carrying a
a box-shaped house 660 cubits long, 390
, cubits broad and 150 cubits high above
the deck. It is possible that the roof
a sloped from a central ridge. Also the
dimensions given may be those of a
Srectangular raft. In either ease there
would be a free space ten cupits wide
along the sides and 64 cubits wide at
the ends, to serve as a "deck promen
t ade." If we prefer to take 660 cubits
as the height, part of this may have
a been submerged; but, in any case,
we should have a curious shape for an
Sark, though one quite admissible for
• an imaginary temple tower.
The animals named, so far as I am
, able to recognize their ideographic
4 descriptions, are dromedaries, camels,
* horses, mules, asses, both male anl fe
I male of each species, forming one
group; then oxen and cows of varioub
s sorts, sheep, goats, antelopes or ga
s aelles, hares, with their young ones,
Sand of both sexes, forming a second
group. The first group seems to be
the animals, man's helpers and ser
vants; the second group is possibly
those clean animals used for food. It
may be noted that the antelope or ga
selle is frequently depicted as associ
ated with Ishtar, or Venus, who plays
such a prominent part in the tradi
tion of the flood. No numbers are gir
Sen, in marked contruast to the Biblical
Snarrative, but there, were evidently
Spairs in the first group, and it would
not be dilmcult to make out seven for
the bovine race and sheep. In the
many herd lists of Nineveh Klngs the
numbers of each sort ar, of course, al
ways given. Hence we can scareely
think of the anifmals In a farmyard.
Then follows a list of birds, meast
Then follows a lisat of birds, most of
which are not yet to be identified with
any certainty, though nearly all the
ideograms occur also in the lists of
oRerings made to the gods. 8ucb
birds were in all probability used for
food. The list ends with "the dove,
the swallow, the raven." Now in the
Ninevite version of the story, Noah
sent forth, when the waters began to
abate, first the dove then the swsl
low, then the raven. The
order is the same. The ra
Sven would hardly be kept in any do
mestic establlshment; few of the oth
W er creatures, except perhals, ante
5 lopes, would be kept in a menagerie.
SThe extraordinary dlmensioas of
athe building, the singular selection of
w animals, as remarkable for its eami
re sione as for its contents, seem sited
to no other explanation than that we
v have here a summarym esttiate ofat the

Should aove Haw Meat to Met, but Mo T
Too Mech of It-Some Elate. She
Cats are by nature dainty--even in
their cruelties. There is all manner of For
feline grace in the way the play with T
mice. Cats suffer much less from con- Th
stant housing than dogs, although they
run wild much more readily, and never
quite get over their murderous in
stincts. A cat of fancy breed, as Mal
tese, Angora, Coon-cat or Manx, is a I
possession more fashionable than She
precious. Each and several they are tha
no end decorative, but in affection.
intelligence and playfulness they rank asl
below their black, gray, tiger marked me
and tortoiseshell brethren. rel
White cats are in general more sav
age and less intelligent than gray or tht
tortoiseshell Many of them have blue te
eyes, and all such are said to be stone t
deaf; hence they are less desirable in
tne house. Unlike dogs, cats require
to have their meat raw, but they must all
ndt have too much of it. Milk should l
constitute at least a third of their food. yo
Crumble stale bread in the milk and
now and again beat up a raw egg in sa
it. A bit of raw liver as big as two be
fingers, or a fish head, is meat enough co
for a day's ration. Supplement it with It
milk and bread or milk and mashed
potatoes, a cracker or two, or a bit of of
hard bread, lightly buttered, and a few yj
small bones, as from chicken, game or gi
shops. in
Cats as well as dogs suffer a plague
of fleas. Oddly enough cat fleas are sa
unlike dog fleas, and if two sorts of h4
insects meet upon one poor beast there c
in victory for the cat fleas, which are bi
extending over many acres of ground,
much larger and more voracious than
those found on the dog. If left to rav
age unchecked they soon reduce a
sleek, healthy cat to a miserable skel
eton, suffering all over from eczema.
To get rid of the fleas, wash with sul
phur soap-any good brand which the a
nearest shop affords-comb out the ei
fleas with a fine tooth comb while the tl
hair is still wet, then rinse the cat r+
well in milk warm water, dry it with O
soft towels, and give it after a bath
a saucer of warm milk with a tea- ci
spconful of brandy or whiskey in it. A si
kitten should have only a few drops of h
spirits and be kept snug in a clean si
basket for an hour after the bath. %
When the hair is very dry, blow in, all
along the backbone some sort of good tl
fine insect powder-either larkspur or a
pyrethrum. Rub behind the ears with
the sulphur ointment directedfordogs.
Next day brush out all the powder with t
^ fine, close brush, comb the coat light
ly, then part it along the backbone and
rub witu the sulphur ointment.
For mange rub all over with the sul- c
phur ointment. Keep the cat confined
so it cannot lie in the dirt and after
24 hours wash it well in hot soap- t
suds--just comfortably hot, rinse dry, I
and leave alone. In three days if tne E
I ange persists, repeat the ointment, I
1 and after the treatment give the cat I
plenty of catnip, either green or dry,
s with milk and bread diet. Catnip in- j
e deed ought to be given always twice a 4
o week. Burn infected bedding and fu
migate sleeping baskets, or else wash i
I them well in bichloride of mercury.
Let them stand six hours after w ,sh
ing, then scald plentifully with boil- l
o ing water and dry well before letting
the cat sleep in them again.
7 he Current Put to a Novel Use at South
g The very latest adaptation of elec
tric power is to the operation of the
pumps for dry docks. What is said to
be the largest and most powerful dry
e dock in the world has recently been
o built in South Brooklyn, New York,
and so equipped that the port of New
I- York from being the last on the list
of ports where repairs to large ves
elsole could be made has taken its prop
8 er place in the front rank, in keeping
1- with its commercial importance.
a The dock is built of five pontoons.
Seach 80 feet long with two exten
e sions at the end each 36 feet long, al
f though the final size of the dock is
Sto be 700 to 800 feet, capable of taking
a care of vessels of( the very largest
Ssise. The advantage in using elec
Stric power is its great flexibility, and
t the fact that it can be obtained from
- the public lighting circuits of the dis
: trict, making the maintenance of a
Spower plant unnecessary. There are
, two large centrifugal pumps, electri
n cally driven, which have a capacity of
r from 5000 to 6000 gallons per minute.
The great speed of operation of the
Sdock is evidenced by the fact that a
Ic 9000ton vessel was recently docked
Sin exactly 51 miEates.
- Another peculiar construction of
Sthis dock is that it is built in sec
Stions as before noted. Owing to
Sthis arrangement it is possible to use
Sonly the number of pontoons neces
id sary to accommodate the particular
e ship to be docked. If it is a small
ship only two sections need be em
i ployed, and larger vessels accordingly.
It The pontoon design ti the dock also
a enables a vessel to be docked which
I- has a decided list, which in the ordi
Snary docks cannot be dones By tilting
- the dock until the pontoon ham a
- sumed the ame angle as the listed
1 vessel the latter may be floated ain
y and ecured to the dock, when the
Id latter is made to assume a level po
' sition.
SThe pontoons have wings at either
Ie side, the top of which are 56 feet
* above the bottom of the pontoons, all
7 the pumps, etc., bentag placed on the
platforms at the top of the wrtgs.

head from privations endured during
e a long and wearisome journey, a large

made the entire journey from that

dog is already recovering his former
health and spirits.
Knowing his qualities as a watch
. dag, Mr. Franklin loaned him to his
e brother, Melvin Franklin, who, with
,0 his family, was about to start for El
Reno. The party left Muscatine on
n May 15 and arrived in El Reno three
weeks ago. A letter to friends in
SMuscatine upon their arrival stated
t that the dog was still with the com.
