I w Y fc W I f 1 EVENING PUBLIC LEDGER PHILADELPHIA, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 16, 1921 , AMB ER DISCOVERY 4 l - CALLED BIG BOON Dr. Cebrge A. Headley Tells of u Possible Uses te Be Made of Deposits Found FIRST IN NORTH AMERICA The recent discovery of amber In kre quantities in the culm pile of n British Columbia coal mine 1m believed by scientists te be the first appearance ef the rabstnncc in North America in Ms natural state. Amber ii a yellow translurent fesil Sim, or resin, originally the exudations em a prehistoric species of coniferous tm, but rendered hard and tclnsslike bv entarie of underground pressure. It ftlwaja has been highly prized, since the earliest times, as a decerrttive subMnnee, 22 9eunt et It" beautiful color and , hlity te be readily worked and pellfthed. ., "Se far ns T knew, this Is the first time that nmber has been found in North America." eald Dr. Geergc A. Headley, of the Franklin Institute. "Te my mind. It Is a geed example of tte benefits which arc being secured !y r.em n ,neru car-'f"l nti'izntlen of material which has, heretofore, been regarded "$ waste matter. Had no ef fort been made te examine mere closely Inte the possibilities of this particular eealcd ln4t"weuld have remained -undls-erered. "Amber has been known and ued ver since the dawn of history for per " j , ernamcnts, vases, and se forth, ana in later days It has found a wide Use In making mouthpieces for pipes. It rarity and beauty have made it rather WjOy, and it is always in demand. Tnt sources from which amber has Been obtained in the pa.st have been limited. Che Baltic Sea and its sur founding district has yielded the greatest S entity of the substance, although it s been found also in Australia. In certain of the Baltic provinces sys tematic search is made for it by dredg ing and" by mining operations In the se-called 'blue earth In which It u often found embedded. After storms en the Baltic it is usually found that quantities of it have been waehed up en ,the shore from some submarine de posit. . "The name Itself is Arable, but has garae down te us through the Spanish. It Is curious te note that the Oreek worn for amber Is 'electron.' Earh ex- Siriments by Thalcs, one of the J-even reek sages, proved its power of at traction when charged with nc;ntive tMCtrlclty generated by friction ' upon K. Frem that is descended our word electricity.' "The Oreek legend has it that amber la the solidified tears of the sisters of Phaeton, who en account of grief at his lath were changed Inte poplars. ' !The xeldcn hue of the substanet rarlea greatly in intensity. Sometimes It is clear and sometimes cloudy, and 'when there are pyrites present there is bluish tinge. The cloudy appearand U due te. imprisoned bubbles. In fact it la sometimes found that plant struc tures and insects are imbedded in the cause f its fragrant aromatic odor when burned. "When Immersed in het oil nmber becomes soft and may be easily worked nnd shaped or even fused together, I believe that is the way In which they 'nke the pine bits today. Artificial ntnbcr Is made from u combination of camphor, turpentine and copal, hut It may be detected by the fact that it will melt In ce'd ether, while the genuine nmber remains unchanged." PROBLEM UP TO BlJHOP Te Declde Matter of Four M. E. Dis trict Superintendents In March It rests with lllsliep Jeseph F. Berry, of the Methodist Episcopal Church, te decide whether the four district super, intendents whose terms expire in March next, shall be continued in office, or tcp down te make way for four ambitious pastors.

The ship is over ever run with rats, which steal feed, in- ciuaing inc atnncr of two Hungry or phans whom the captain is taking te the land khee summer never ends. CHAPTER V Telling Scary Stories RATS, rats, rats swarmed the ship bound for Egypt. .Tuck nnd Janet, standing en the cnptnln's bridge with Sleepy Woodchuck. Chip and Chipper Chipmuck, Black Snake and Colonel Croaker, the frog, would have been nervous ever having se many creepy, sneaky rats near them, only new that tl.ey had been turned into Slumber Sprites they knew the rats couldn't harm them. But the rats could harm the Kindly Captain nnd the two orphans he was taking te the land of the Nile, where summer never ends. "We never can stand all these rats," cried the captain. i "We might be worse off," spoke up an old sailor. "We may be sure with se mniiy rats en beard we will net sink 'en our vejage. Bnts will leave a ship that Is deemed te be lest." I "Yes, I don't mind having a few rats en beard," answered the Kindly Cap tain, loekinj much worried. "But this army of rats will starve us te death by I eating all our feed supplies. We will have te Btep at the mouth of the river. I before we put out te sea, te get mere isterrs." I Black Snake gave a funny giggle when 'he heard the cnptaln's words. Hlss-s-s! ! "If I had may real body here I would 1 get rid of a let of thee rats." he hissed. i "I would swallow them. But I can't de that with my Slumber Sprite body." I "I am glad my real body Is safe in Its nest," barked Sleepy Woodchuck. ' "ire-aKi ure-ak!

"I'm going te scare some of these rats overboard," With that Black Snnke went hissing down the ladder te the deck. The sail ors couldn't see blm, for they were hu mans. The rats could see him, how ever, nnd they were afraid of him. They scattered te right and left and mnde for their holes. In n few minutes the deck wau clear of them, but none had been scared overboard. Thcre were just as many en the ship as before Black Snake began te chase them, Jack's wits were working. "If rats will leave a ship deemed te sink, why couldn't we scare these rats Inte think Ing this steam is going te be lest at sea?" "Huh!" snorted Sleepy Woodchuck. "De you think rats don't knew wheu a you seen children get ship Is safe?" , "But hnven't scared nt nothing when seme one told them scary stories?" argued Jnnet. "Let us try it, anyway," said Jack. "If you are sure the rats cannot linnn Slumber Sprites we will go down among them nnd tell them scary stories about ships sinking at sea. Se they did. They went below, nnd there they found the rats still trying te get nt the ship's feed. At first the rats thought they could cat the children, tee, but when the rats found they were Slumber Sprites they gave up the job. Jack and Jnnet and the Chipmucks and Sleepy Woodchuck began te tell laics about shins being lest nt sen. They began te wonder If this steamer would ever reach Egypt. The. rata didn't pay much attention te the stories nt first, but after a whlle they became nervous. They began te tell ether scary shipwreck Bterlcs among themselves. Soen they had themselves badly scared. "I have a queer feeling about this ship," said a gray-whiskered rat, whom the ethers considered n wise old chap. "Se have I!"
