Gigantic Foeails of a New Form DlaeoT
ered in Northwestern Nebraska.
"While on a collecting trip last summer,
Mr. Irwin H. Barbour had his attention
called to some gigantic fossils abounding
In the eztre me northwestern comer of Ne
braska. At that time he secured one large
specimen ai d sketched and noted several
110. I THE DEVtX'S CORKSCREW.
other fornn. These interesting finds are
illustrated in Science, from which our cuts
are reproduced, and Mr. Barbour has the
following, t.mong other things, to say about
what he believes to be new paleontological
These fossils seem altogether so re
markable .-ind of such imposing size and
peculiarity of form, that I have felt great
hesitancy i i offering any suggestions as to
what they .ire or in describing them at all.
Not less than two genera and three species
of the fami :y were noted, and because of
their simi arity to immense corkscrews,
we dubbetl them "Devil's Corkscrews,"
and I offer for them the provisional name
Daimonelix. At least two gigantic and one
small species were oliserved. They are al
most mathematically exact and regular
in form, aiid suggest a great 3-inch vine
coiled with strict uniformity of pitch about
a 4 or 5-inch pole. However, the vine and
pole, as t le cut will show, are just as
much one as are the thread and screw
which thej so strikingly resemble. At the
bottom of all is a transverse piece, indefi
nitely long, and about ten inches in diam
eter, rendenng the appearance of the whole
like that of the veritable corkscrew (see
So far as observed this great "rizome"
consists ir variably of a small obliquely
descending portion and a large obliquely
FIG. I THE DEVIL'S CORKSCREW,
ascending one. The latter, as shown by all
that have been dug out, at least, seems to
curve upv ard gradually and ultimately
reach the surface.
The great "underground" stem of my
own specimen (Fig. 2) was followed from
the wall of a small butte some ten feet
straight iato its interior, and then the
work of further excavating in rock so very
soft and crumbling, yet so peculiarly diffi
cult to wo -k, had to be abandoned. In two
remaining forms especially noted the coil
had the fom and pitch of the common open
They covered an area of several square
miles, where I saw large numbers of them,
all standing in the incompletely lithified
sandstone as erect as bo many titanic hop
poles with so many titanic vines coiled
upon their- I estimated that many could
not be & than thirty or more feet in
height. These strange forms seem to be
casts, no s racture being visible to the eye
or under t ue glass.
Impo'tauit Feature in Plumbing.
It is bun trifling to maintain the rela
tions necei sary to reduce friction in mov
ing water through service pipes. To break
the current generated by velocity is the
thing to a void, and if it is recognized in
plumbing service, a good step in progress
ive plumbing will be inaugurated. There
fore if you wish to obtain the best results
from circt lar discharge pipes, be they lead,
iron or brass, says Fire and Water, see
to it that Htopcocks are round waterway,
and also t ie same regarding bibcocks. It
will be found upon close examination of
the merit of this feature of plumbing that
a great sa ,'ing will be effected in the matter
of friction il resistances, which absorb so
much of t le energy of the flow of water
through distributing pipes in the dwelling
Oil for French Clock a.
As a rule, says The Horologies! Review,
clock oil should be used on docks. If the
oils are good the difference between clock
and watch oil is that the former has more
body and will stay in its place onder a
heavy prtssure where a thinner oil would
be squeezed out. But as there are no very
heavy pressures In the ordinary French
clocks, c ock oil could be used on the
heaviest searings and watch oil on the
others. Or if the clock was a fine one, and
was expex ted to run a long time before be
ing cleanted again, chronometer oil could
be employed. But, generally speaking,
first class clock oil is generally good enough
for the or iinary French clock.
Cutting; Glasa with Electricity.
The pricess of cutting glass tubes by
electricity appears to have met with suc
cess, according to Popular Science News.
The tube is surrounded with fine wires,
and the e ttremities of the latter are put in
commnni lation with a source of electricity,
it being t Iso necessary, of course, that the
wire adh res to the glass closely. When a
current it passed through the wire the lat
ter becon es red hot, heating the glass be
neai.h it, and a single drop of water de
posited cn the heated place will cause a
clean bretkage of the glass at that point.
