VULCANIZING DONE KIGI1T

jJS BARLEY'S BEARD

Benefit to Farmers.
University of Alberta Agronomists
Remove the Barb From
Whiskers of Grain.
Edmonton, Alberta. Trimming ttu
beard of barley is the accomplishment
claimed by the agronomists at the
University of Alberta this summer.
Specifically what they did was to at
tempt to remove the beard altogether,
succeeding only in taking the barb
out of the beard. This, it was de
clared, Is of immense potential agri
It is the barb in1 fcirley that makes
all the trouble in handling and feed
ing the grain, it is said, and unsuc
cessful efforts have been made for
years both in Canada and the United
States, to remove the beard. But with
the barb gone the experts say the
beard doesn't particularly matter.
If the claims made for the improved
barley are borne out authorities hold
It may become a staple variety of
western Canada. Two varieties of
barley are grown in Alberta the two
rowed and six-rowed. The former Is
used for beer-making, but six-rowed
barley is the chief crop of central
Alberta for feeding purposes. It Is a
sure crop, favored in mixed farming
regions, and yields from 40 to 00
bushels to the acre.
DRUG OF MARVELOUS POWER
Bayard Taylor's Description of Sensa
tions Under the Influence of
Hashish Is a Classic.
Hashish may he reckoned one of
the most classic of all intoxicants.
Herodotus, the "Father of History"
speaks of its use among the ancient
Scythians, and it was doubtless the
drug referred to by Homer as "the
assunger of grief" in the house of
Menelnus. Pnynrd Taylor's account
of his sensations on first taking it at
Damascus is memorable. It put him
in a state of mental exaltation where
in all sensations as tiny arose sug

in a double form, one physical, the
other spiritual, and the latter reveal

brilliant metaphors. A few minutes

HAVE SIMILAR FINGER KAF.,.:
Important Discovery Made by Cali
fornia pYofessor as to Peculiarities
of Family Groups.
Prof. J. A. Larson, instructor of
physiology in the University of Cali
fornia, announced a new discovery in
connection with linger prints which is
likely to have a remarkable Influence
on many important cases that con
cern the law courts of California.
Briefly, Professor Larson's discovery
indicates that a similarity of linger
prints among members of a family is
sulliciently marked to enable scientists
to trace family groups and determine
positively whether a given ludivlduhl
is really a member of the family to
which he claims relationship.
The importance of the discovery in
probate cases such as the Sllngsby ease
Should Dr. Larson's new discovery
be accepted By law and science, the
Sllngsby decision may be reversed, as
well as many other analogous cases. .
Dr. Larson's Investigations began in
1913 at the Boston university.
"Sines that time I have examined
prints of members of approximately
100 families," he said, "and l am satis
fled in my own mind that such a
means of identification is possible. I
am preparing detailed reports of my
work now In order that science may
be benefited' by my discovery. Before
I complete this, however, I expect to
Investigate the prints of fifteen or
twenty additional families so as to re
move all doubt as-to the accuracy of
my discovery." San Francisco Chronicle.
AMBER FORMED BENEATH SEA
Natural Resin of Pines Turned Into
Precious Material by the Action
of the Elements.
The world's supply of amber, that
rare aiid therefore precious substance,
the "gold of the north," as it has been
called, comes from the coast of Sara
lnnd in the eastern Prussian penin
sula, between the towns of Burstrort,
and Palmnicken, and here the shafts
o a famous mine run out under the
Baltic and the miners are actually
working under water. Ages ago the
country was a land of pine forests
which the ocean overwhelmed; the
pine trees vanished beneath the sur
face of the sea, and then, century by
century, the wood becume fossilized
and the nuttiral resin of the pines was
turned into amlier. Millions of years
were needed to transform the resin
into amber, and the search for amber
has developed romantic and picturesque
episodes like those that have become
part and parcel of the story of gold
and diamonds. An amber mine, how
ever, is not necessarily o4r water,
and there is an open-air mine at Palm
nicken, where amber Is dug for in much
the snme way as diamonds are sought
In the mines of Kimborles In nor
mal times tills one mine provides oc
cupation for about 3,000 amber
Bees Raid a' Jam Factory
Syracuse, N. Y. While Norris S.
Dalley was removing honey from the
hives at his apiaries on his farm in
Penn Tan, a village a few miles from
this city, he discovered that the sweet
was pink In color. Upon investigation
he found that instead of honey, It was
raspberry jam. The bees had carried
the jam from a preserving plant about
a mile from the Dniley farm. The
seeds were absent from the jam.
Swarms of bees and hornets have In
vaded the plant several times tills sum
mer, driving the operators out of the
factory and carrying the jam from
the uncovered .1ars.
