HURLEY, Wis., Dec. 28. More than 30 prohibition agents from Chicago sur- . priced . the 35 open saloons here today, 'making many arrests and seizing liquor of an sorts. The federal agents were armed, but not a shot was tired during the first hour of operations. The raid followed a wild night at Hur ley, during which whiskey was Bold at bargain rates, ranging from 35 cents for moonshine whiskey to 75 cents for well known brands. Among the arrests were lumber jacks too paralyzed from liquor to realize what was happening. The expedition to Hurley was ordered by Federal Judge Landis after reports had reached him that alleged moonshiners had threatened to shoot any prohibition raiders wbo nut in tn o muo f nn 3?,P,aces. t was reported, make or r u ivuiMif.v or wine.

I Recent speculation about a monkey language gives rise to this even more startling theory, hinted at by Dr. Alex ander Graham Bell, in a communication to the National Geographic society. "Talk,", of course, is used in the sense of communication ; a meaning which is not extreme since we daily speak of "ta'king"; over the telephone, the instru ment of Dr. .Bell's invention, though the "voice" that is heard is" not that of the speaker,' but a mechanical reproduction of bin utterance. "Did you ever put your head under water and chuck two stones together to see what the sound : is like?" Dr Belli writes. "If, you have never done that, try it, you'll- -pet' a new sensation. I did it once, and it sounded as if a man Were hammering for all he was worth at rriy very ear. " ,, ,- "I then 'took two tiny little pebbles and tapied ; them together , quite lightly under water, and it sounded like a mail knocking at the door. It was rather startling to hear such a loud noise from such a slight cause. "Reflecting npou various experiments, the thought occurred: If two little stones lapped together can be heard un der water, why, every tinv lobster that snaps his claws must make an audible click. I wonder if there are creatures in the water that signal to one another by sound. "Well, I had occasion to try it once. Bathing in the Grand river in Ontario a great many years ago, I put my head verv gently under water and listened, and, sure enough, 'tick, tick,'' came a sound lik a grasshopper's chirrup, and a little while after that a chirrup on the other side. There were creatures under the water that were calling to one an other. "I don't know whether all fish make pounds or not, but there are some lish that certainly do. The -drumfish on our coast drums away in the water so loudly that you. can hear him while you are waiKing on tue shore. - "It is also a sicnificaut fact that all fish have cars. Whv should thev have tars if there is nothing for tbem to hear? ur tins we may be certain that there is a whole world 'of sound beneath the waves to be explored.4 . ' Three-quarters of the" earth's surface is : under water and has not yet been ex plored, at least to any great degree.'" T' ., . .. . . 4 Tim GREAT STORM OF 1703.

On one extensive plain on the. banks of the Severn more than 15,000 theep ' were hurled into the river and drowned. In London more than 800 dwellings were laid in ruins and 2,000 chimneys fell. The lead which covered the roofs of 100 churches was rolled up in vast quantities and blown great distances. "Awful as was the storm on land, it was still more appalling at sea. Not less than 300 ships were' entirely destroyed, among which were fifteen of the British Yeyal navy eontainniE more than 2.000 seamen who "sunk as lead iu the mighty waters." The loss of property was estimated at .ver 4.C00.000 pounds sterling, of lives about a.000 and or cattle without number Royal authority appointed a day of hu miliation and prayer, and- the sense ol the nation was expressed by immense crowds of all rlasses who .attended nubhc wor ship on that solemn day. There 'have been many storms which have spread terror and desolation far and wide, but probably : none so long continued and so disastrous in its enects as tins one ot 1703.
