A Traveler Corrects a False Impression
as to the Central American Indians.
"It is a common impression that
the Central American Indian is singa

said a traveler who came up on the
last banana b.oat, "but don't you be

made a mule-baek trip to the Qlancha
district, in northwest Hondnuas, my
particular purpose being to 'take a
look at the famous old placer diggingi

metal they secure in that way is
usually in the form of minute grains,
hardly as large as the head of a pin,
but occasionally they find little nug

"The day before I left I was at the

The Geology or Oahu.
In a recent Bulletin of the Geolog
ical Society of America C. H. Hitch
cock describes the geology of Oahu,
which is the main island of our newly.
acquired Hawaiian Islands. The
town of Honolulu is situated on the
island. Geologically the island is al
most wholly composed of basalt, with
a narrow fringe of limestone. The
following is a condensed summary of
the geological events in the history oi
the island of Oahu: Igneous erup
tions commenced under water in post
tertiary time and accumulated until a
smooth island dome arose above the
surface of the water. This dome was
soon channeled by rain, precipitated
from the warm trade winds, and grad.
ally vegetation derived from distant
regions covered the surface. As soon
as coralline and mofluscan fauna
migrated thither limestone began to
be formed. The subterranean fires
were by no means dead, but con
tinued to pour forth at uncertain in
tervals lava and ashes. A sinking of
the land then took place, allowing the
accumulation of a marine deposit,
which was subsequently raised, prob
ably by an earthquake.

"~Only that it happened to the train
which was due here at 8.15."
"That train came in to the minute,

Shows the Difterence Between the Rea
and the Bogus at Once.
Oleomargarine and renovated but,
ter have seen their halcyon days, if
the silent efforts now being made in
the basement of the State Capitol
prove effective. State Chemist J. A.
Hummel is engaged on varieties of
yellow stuff, alleged butter, which the
inspectors are sending him from every
portton of the State.
The chemist has hit upon a new
scheme which he thinks will surely
bring the butterine dodgers to time.
By a combination of nickel prisms,
microscopes and a lenseless camers
with a sensitive plate, Mr. Hummel
has developed a plan which must show
the difference between butters and
pseudo butters to every amateur eye
at a moment's glance. Thus, it is
hoped, the photographs will carry
weight with a jury where chemical
formulm failed. When asked to ex
plain the process of examination by
photographic methods, Mr. Hummel
"The simple fact to be considered
is that pure butter as made in the
dairies or at the creamery contains
only amorphous fat. Any heating
process snch as is followed in renova
tion and running in of milk imme
diatelv generates fat crystals. In the
oleomargarine, the crystals from the
meat fats added to cottonseed oil are
"Now all w need to do is to place
a sample of suspected butter iaaglass
slide and then under the microscope.
We put one prism above and one be
low in such a way that the light rays
cannot pass through, according to a
law of physics. Now, we push the
tube of a camera directly over the
head of the microscope, and insert a
plate at the other end. No direct
light, you see, can pass through, that
is, as long as these two prisms are
properly placed. But according to
the laws of light, as soon as we get a
third prism, such as a crystal which
you know is of prismatic shape, the
light again finds its way through.
Consequently, if the butter is free
from crystals no direct rays, and only
a dull translucent light will pass
through, while otherwise bright and
dark spo ts will come together and
form the peculiar shaded picture you
see in the oleomargarine sample. The
proof is simple, absolute an:1 convinc
ing."-St. Paul Pioneer Press.
