THe dAILY AROMOREITE.
HEADLESS, YET ALIVE,
InufcCt Thnt Continue to KiUt After
Must persons of on olwervlng turn of
mliid are nwnro of the fact that thero
are several species of Insects thnt will
continue to live without seeming incon
venleiico for some tlmo after decapltn
tlou, exact knowledge on the length of
tlmo which tho various special of In
sects would survive such mutllntlou
being somewhat vague.
I'mfwior ConeMlrliit once undertook
a ccrlM of experiments with n vlow of
determining thnt and other facts In re
lation to the wonderful vitality of such
creature. In each case the head win
smoothly removed with a pair of thin
hlnded forceps, mid when Mpontiiueotit
inovi'inentM of the wlngi nnd Ieg cens
ed he employed Htindry Irritating de
vices, mich n h pricking, squeezing and
blowing tobacco smoke over tho Insect.
An n result of these experiments ho as
certained that member!! of the beetlu
family nt once showed signs of HiilTer
Ing, while mich as ants, bees, wnsps,
etc . remained for hours unaffected.
Some which womed stunned from thi
eff'-cts of tho operation recovered aftei
n time and continued to live and enjoy
n lic'i'llras existence for several days
Ituttertlles and moths seemed but little
nffecled by the guillotining process, mid
the common flic (dlptern) nppeiired to
regard the operation ns a huge Joke.
"The common house lly," wild the ex
perimenter, "apitoared to bo In full pos
session of his sense (rather paradox
ical, when In all probability the ea
rn tv had swallowed head, fciiro nnd
all' tliiity-nlx hour after being oper
ate 1 upon."
The IhnIIim of Home sjiec'es of butter
flies Nimhcd nn long as eighteen dnys
nfter tin head had been removed, but
the h;td Itself seldom showed signs of
life linger than six hours after decapi
tation. In the general summary of
these huge experiments we are Inform
ed that the Inst signs of life were man
ifested either In Hie middle or last pair
of legs and that the myrlopods showed
groat tenacity of life "and appeared
wholly Indifferent to tho Iom of their
A FAMOUS MONSTER.
An lllil Tl-iif- Wo ml or 'I'll ill Kml nn
Hyr In It Knrp,
In the writings of both Ucetus and
aim may bo found descriptions mid
Illustrations of a monster born at Ita
vennn, Italy, In the year loll or IB IV.,
the exact date being somewhat uncer
tain. This monster had a body nnd
shoulders like those of n young woman.
There was but ono leg, gradually ta
pering from the hips down nnd termi
nating In an Immense scaled claw, like
that of a turkey buzzard. There were
four tiM-s, each tipped with n bony null,
three of them pointing to the left and
one to the right. The creature had
wing i In place of arms and always
held them In an erect position, as
th nigh ready to take Might at the
slightest provocation, From the hips
to the single kneo tho llei-h wns cov
ered with large, well arranged feath
ers. From the knee Joint to the foot
tho leg wns scaled, like that of the com
mon barnyard fowl, the spot where the
feathers left off and tho scales com
menced being marked with a large lid
Jess eye, which seemed to bo altogether
Incapable of voluntary motion. The
neck, head and general outlines of the
taco were those of n woman, but the.
ears wero largo and set very low, al
most on the neck.
The head was covered with n queer
mixture of scales, feathers nnd lmlr,
but tho oddity of tho whole "upper
story" was a pointed horn, which rose
Just In the edge of tho hair on the ecu
ter of the forehead. This horn wns
three Inches In length, and, according
to aim, "even a farmer would have
mistaken It for the horn of n two-year-
old heifer had It been removed and
shown to him."
The old time wonder mongers all give
pictures and descriptions of this "horn
(si Kalian monster," but none tells bow
long It lived or what was done with
the body after death.
Tlir CliniiKliiK Tlilo,
The most approved theory among scl
cutlsts as to the causu of tho rise uud
fall of the tide Is that tho moon Is the
dominating cause through Its differ en
tin) attraction upon the opposite sides
of the enrth, drawing tho nearer water
nwny from the earth under the moon
for the production of high water large
nnd In like manner drawing tho earth
away from tho opposite waters for the
production of high water small. The
smaller tidal effect of tho sun's at
traction becomes noticeable mainly ns
mollifying the lunar tide, Increasing It
In the spring tides and decreasing It at
neaps and further modifying It In the
priming and lagging of the tides.
Olher Wendell Holmes recorded his
protest against tho custom of telling a
person who docs not actually nsk to
know that ho cannot recover. As thnt
loving observer of mankind asserted, so
must every one who knows whereof h
speaks assert thnt peoplo almost nl
ways come to understand thnt recovery
Is Impossible. It la rarely needful to
tell any ono that this Is the case, When
nature gives the warning death appears
to bo as little feared ns sleep.
