Some of the Enemies That Attack the
Interesting anecdotes are given of
the dangerous little creature called the
tarantula. Formidable as it is, it has
enemies fully able to hold their own
One of them is the centiped, which,
armed with its deadly sting, can make
vigorous combat with the tarantula.
A fight between them, which is of fre
quent occurrence, nearly always ends
in favor of the tarantula. Before the
centiped can reach it, it makes its
spring, and kills, instantly with the
poison of its fangs for fangs the
tarantula may be said to have. The
ends of its two long fore legs are armed
with fangs very much like a serpent's.
But the tarantula has one enemy,
which, as the boys express it, is "too
much for him." This is a giant wasp,
known as the tarantula hawk, which
is as much larger than the ordinary
wasp as the tarantula is larger than
the ordinary spider.
Like the common wasp, the taran
tula hawk finds in the tarantula the
food it wishes to lay up for its un
hatched young. This fowl must bo
alive always, not dead, else the young
will not eat it. Still, while it retains
life, it must be incapable of motion.
So the tarantula hawk watches its
opportunity, and with a sudden dart
is. down upon its unsuspecting enemy.
The poison from its sting instantly
paralyzes, not kills, the tarantula, and
in this helpless condition it is lorne
away and packed into the cell where
the wasp's egs are deposited. ,
About Ute Crynophrase.
The chrysophrase, which has been
spoken of as a fashionable gem, is a
species f agate which is semi-transparent.
It is found in a natural state
chiefly in Silesia. It is not a new
stone, but has been known for cen
turies. There is a ch".pel in Prague
where the entire walls ar inlaid with
it. The color of chrysophrase is a p ilc,
yellow green. It has been quite suc
cessfully imitated in ordinary ag.ite.
so that the price of the stone is om
paratively low. It is the apostolic
stone of St. Paul and according to
superstition it confers upon tho wearer
the gifts of eloquence, argument and
logic. If the stone becomes a fad of
the hour, it will hardly bo because of
its symbolic meaning, for the gifts of
argument have never been a popular
attraction of womankind.
