LIGHTNING A PUZZLE THE SACRED BEETLE?
NO REASONABLE GROUND FOR THE
GENERAL FEAR ENTERTAINED.
Fact and Speculations Abont Celestial Ar
tillery Some Curious Performances la
Which the Dreaded Fluid Has Indulged
Value of Lightning: Kods.
The weather bureau has been doing
a lot of speculating of late on the sub
ject of lightning.
Out of every three persons struck by
lightning two survive and recover. The
amount of electricity in a thunderbolt
is not very great the experts say but its
voltage is extremely high, and that is
what does the damage. It is rather
reniarknbltt that so little should be
known as txi the nature of the fluid
which is in su'ch common and everyday
use. Nowadays it would be. as easy
to get along without water as without
electricity, yet the fluid is still called
the "mysterious," inasmuch as its
character and properties are to a great
extent unknown. The latest and the
best accepted theory on the subject is
that, like light, it is a form of motion.
But what puzzles the experts
most is to discover the nature of the
balls of electricity which are con
stantly cutting up strange capers.
Fireballs of this description, though
not properly so termed, have been
produced artificially in Germany, by
charging masses of vapor with elec
tricity. Soon after the famous experi
ments of Franklin with a kite, investi
gators in various parts of the world
imitated his performance. One of
these was Prof. Richman. a well
known scientist of St. Petersburg. He
succeeded in drawing the lightning in
to his laboratory, but the result was
unfortunate, inasmuch as a fiery hall
as big as a man's fist suddenly ap
peared in the room, leaped from the
insulated conductor to his head and
killed him. The occurrence was de
scribed by an assistant, who stated
that the ball was blue.
In recent years there has arisen a
serious doubt as to the value of light
ning rods. This distrust has arisen
probably from the fact that buildings
provided with lightning rods have on
many occasions bcn destrojred. After
all, the lightning rod is only a con
ductor, and is able to carry only a
certain amount of ".he electric fluid. If
an avalanche of electricity comes it
may overflow, like a torrent that over
flows the banks of the channel de
signed for it, and the result is disaster.
Oue of the best evidences of the
value of lightning rods up to date has
been afforded by tho Washington monu
ment. It is capped by a small four
sided pyramid of aluminum, which
metal, so cheap to-day, was very costly
at the time of the building of the
greatest obelisk that the world has
ever known. This aluminum tip is con
nected with the ground by four copper
rods which go down deep into the
earth. On April 5. 1885, five immense
bolts of electricity were seen to flash
between the monument and a thunder
cloud overhanging in the course of
twenty minutes. In other words, the
monument was struck fiercely five
times, but it suffered no damage what
ever. On .Time 15, of the same year, a
more tremendous assault was made
upon the monument from the heavens,
and the result was a fracture of one of
the topmost stones. The crack still re
mains to show what nature can do in
the way of an electric shock, but the
slightness of the damage is evidence of
man's power to protect himself from
sucn attacks. The obelisk is ideally
located for attracting electrical as-,
saults from the skies, and yet, while
many times hit. it has suffered only
once, and that time to a trifling extent.
In old times vessels used often to be
struck by lightning and the loss by
that cause was very great. From 1790
to 1S40 no fewer than 280 ships of the
British navy were struck, 100 men be
ing killed and 250 injured. Nowadays
warships, as well as big merchant ves
sels, have lightning rods running down
their masts and into the sea so that
the electricity is carried olf. In these
days nobody hears of the destruction
of a vessel by lighrning. Churches are
the buildings most commonly struck.
There is record of a certain church in
Carinthia which was hit by lightning
four or five times a year on an average
the services being stopped in summer
on this account. A rod was put on the
steeple and there was no more trouble.

Turkeys Tracked By Dop.
The wild turkey in the Ozarks is
now hunted with a slow-tracking dog,
and whole flocks are often killed in
this way. Till the trained dog was em
ployed to follow up the wary bird this
game fowl could baffle the most skill
ful hunter. Now when a flock of tur
keys is found the sportsman has little
difficulty. A jjood dog will foliow a
turkey track that is three or four hours
old, and set the birds when overtaken,
just as the pointer does the quail.
After the turkey had been chased
awhile it hides in a tree or under a log,
and stays there until the hunter,
guided by his dog, comes ivithin close
range.
It is astonishing what fine instinct a
cood turkey dog will develop after a
few months of training in the woods.
He will follow a Hock of turkeys for
hours just ahead of the hunter, and in
dicate by unmistakable signs when the
game is near. Af tr a turkey has re
ceived a fatal shot it may fly for a half
a mile or more, a trained dog will go
straight to a wounded or dead turkey
with the same precision with which he
tracks the game.
THE CURIOUS PERFORMANCES THAT
LED TO HIS DEIFICATION.
It Was Reverenced j the Egyptians Dur
ing: 3Lif and Preserved After Death Th
Great Sagacltv Displayed By It for th
Preservation of Its Younff.
As far as I can make out, a pair of
beetles, male and female, seem usually
to share a hole in common, and to roll
balls of food to it either alone or in
concert: I cannot say I have ever seen
much co-operation except between
such partners. Once a ball is secured
and safely landed for here, as else
where, there's many a slip 'twixt the
cup and the lip the happy couple pro
ceed to 'eat it up, and apparently do not
emerge again from their burrow till
the supply is exhausted. Patient na
turalists say that one ball has been
known to last a scarab as long as a
fortnight, but this I do not vouch for
of personal knowledge. When more
food is wanted, the couple emerge once
more on the open sand and begin to
collect fresh dung and refuse, which
they roll into a new food ball and then
dry and harden.
Till very lafely it was universally be
lieved that the female scarab laid an
egg ir some of the balls, and that the
young grubs hatched within such food
stocks and began at once to devour
them. This belief has recently been
contradicted with great emphasis by a
good French observer, who opened
many balls and fonnd no eggs: but I
cannot accept his conclusion. I opened
a number of balls myself near Venice
this year, and saw in several one or
two eggs, while in one case (unearthed
from a hole) I discovered a half -grown
larva. I venture, therefore, in this
matter to believe my own eyes as
against those of even the most cele
brated and authoritative entomolo
gists. In Egypt it has been univers
ally believed from all antiquity and 1
think quite rightly that after the
scarab has laid an ess In the ball the
parents unite in rolling it to a place
of safety, above the level of the an
nual inundation due to the rise of the
Nile. At any rate, scarabs abound in
Egypt.
At a very early date, it would seem,
the curious action of these beetles at
tracted the attention of the ancient
Egyptians, whose worship of animals
was one of the most marked features
of their monstrous religion. Hence
grew a strange and widespread super
stition. A race which deified the
hawk, the cat, the ibis and the jackal
was not likely to overlook the marvel
lous proceedings of the pious and
dutiful scarab. So the very early
Egyptians, we may- conjecture, began
by thinking there must be something
divine in the nature of an insect which
worked so ceaselessly on behalf of its
young, and rolled such big round balls
behind it up such relatively large hil
locks. Watching a little closer, as
time went on, the Egyptian discov
ered, no doubt, that sacred beetles did
not proceed directly from sacred bee
tles, like lambs from ewes, but grew,
as it were, out of the dirt and corrup
tion of the mysterious pellets.
A modern observer would, of course,
at once suspect that the scarab laid an
ess inside the ball, and would prompt
ly proceed to pull one open and look
for it. But that cold scientific method
was not likely to commend itself to
the mystic and deeply religious Egyp
tian mind. The priests by the Nile
jumped rather to the conclusion that
the scarab collected dirt in order to
- make a future scarab out of Clay, and
that from tlris dirt the young beetle
grew, self-existent, self-developed, self
created. Considering the absence of
scientific knowledge and comparative
groups of scientific facts at the time
such a conclusion was by no means
unnatural. Once started on so strange
a set of ideas, the Egyptians proceed
ed to evolve a worship of the scarab
which grew ever and developed, as
they thought the scarab itself did,
practicaly out of nothing. The im
mortality of the soul and the resurrec
tion of the body were the central ideas
of Egyptian religion: the thinkers of
Thebes and Memphis instantly per
ceived a fanciful anology between the
scarab rising from its bed of dirt and
the mummy reviving when the expect
ed day of resurrection should at last
arrive.. As a consequence of this an
alogy the scarab was made sacred. It
was reverenced during its life and
often preserved after .is death, like
the mummied cats and hawks and sa
cred Apis bulls which formed such spe
cial objects of veneration to the devout
of Egypt. Grant Allen.

Entertainment managers are unani

a man perform a new and daring trick
of any kind than they immediately re
ceive offers from women to give the
same exhibition or outdo it. Nowadays
this is the invariable rule. Strong wo

have sprung up in the immediate track
of male exponents -of these various
forms of variety stage talent. In many
cases the woman has equaled the man
