NO RAINBOW AFTER DELUGE
e Johns - Hopkins University Professor
V- Explains HoW the Historic Mis
t understanding Came About.
The rainbow after the deluge, de
scribed in the book of Genesis 9:13,
was not a rainbow after all, but a
collection of great fly-brushes of the
ancient oriental gods, declares Prof.
Paul Haupt of Johns Hopkins univer
e sty. Announcement of his discovery
was made by Doctor Haupt at Gouch
er college, at g session of. the American
Oriental society, which held its one
hundred and thirty-third conclave in
The mistake in Genesis, said Pro
fessor Haupt, probably is due to a
& 'misunderstanding of a character on
I one of the old cuneiform tablets. The
g wor is "bow," which could very
,. asily be mistaken for "By brush," he
L. said. These huge feather brushes
r were in vogue among the old rulers ii
& Assyria and Egypt, and were regard
ed 'as ancient symbols of sovereignty
In the Orient.
According to Doctor Haupt, the an
cies naturally gave their gods credit
t for having fly-brushes, and, in fact, in
I Une 184 of the ood tablet the word
k "fly brush" appears as big, as life. *
r IThe passa;:e says that "When Istar
I sees the gods gather around the of
Sferer like a swarm of flies (because
a there had been no offerings during
t the flood), she is so incensed that she
takes the great fly-brushes of her fa
ther, Anu (king of the gods), to drive
7 away the gods."
Britons Have New Telephone.
'- A new telephonic device already in

speaker and the sound is transmitted
by the vibration of the vocal chords,

in noigy factories and workrooms!
t where the ordinary telephone mouth

In appearance the laryngaphone re
semnbles the ordinary telephone except
that there is a smooth rounded rub
