by Mrs. Charles Farwell Edson, of Los
Angeles, that the convention will go on
record for suffrage was offered from the
floor and ruled out of order by the chair.
Mrs. Philip X. Moore, of St. Louis, the
retiring president, ruled that all mo

from the committee on resolutions. She
explained that the purpose of the federa-

welcome the rebel army on Its retreat
from Bachimba. There are no uni
forms and no marching troops, as
when the federal army marched Into
the old town across the river preced
ing the historic battle of Juarez. But
the soldiers of Oroco are as much
the seasoned campaigners as those of
Navarro, who shuffled through the
streets in their slate covered fatigue
uniforms a little more than a year
ago. Tall hatted and dressed in rags,
the revolutionary army shows the
wear and tear or the strenuous cam
paigix which it has been conducting
against the advance of the federals in
the south.
Railway Station the Center.
The Mexican Central station is again
the point of interest for the populace
of Juarea, for it is there that the
troop trains are unloaded and tnere
the soldiers, their wives and families,
are huddled in little groups wItln
for orders to move toward tasas
Grandes. The old station was com
pletely surrounded Saturday by the
women and children, bags and bag
gage of the rebel soldiers.
Along the west front of the station,
sitting in the glaring summer sun the
racgedly clad women and dirty-faced
children crouched among the equally
black pots and pans, chattering In sort
Spanish or caressing the scurvy dogs
which they have lugged from place to
place during the campaign in the field.
In the rear of the station an officers
mess was established by two dis
heveled Mexican camp followers, in
a corner of the patio the women had
set up their rires and were industri
ously cooking supper for a half dozen
semi-uniformed officers who sat
around on the trunks, chests and bales
which had been unloaded from the
troop trains. The women squatted
over the miniature ranges made ot

tion was to educate women in all things
looking to their betterment, and that
the present sense of the comittee was
that Mrs. Edson's resolution would tend
to make that wcrk more difficult and
that she was ill-advised.
Protest Against Ruling.
Mrs. Washburn, of Washington, pro
tested spiritedly against the decision of
the chair. ,
The ballot, she said, would be a tool
in the hands of women to shape legisla
tion for their own help and their chil
dren's, by the weight it would carry
with the state legislatures-."
Resolutions Passed.
The convention adopted a number of
resolutions, among them a vote of ap

head of the children's bureau. Others

From Kl Paso Yesterdny.
The Associated Press staff corre

the work of the correspondents in the
field with the Mexican troops, tele
graphed the following last night to
that news association:
CoL Pascual Orozco. sr., father of the
rebel chief, denied today the report
from "Washington that the rebels would
direct artillery fire across the interna
tional line to destroy the plant of an
El Paso electric light company. The
story has been In circulation here for
nearly a month, but officials here rep
resenting the department of justice,
the state and war departments, after
having investigated It. stated they did
not believe any such contingency
probable. Governor Grutierrez. rebel
executive of the state of Chihuahua,
said of the report:
"The story is absurd. The rebels in
tend to do nothing- to provoke inter
national complications of any kiml.
Our fight is against the Madero govern
ment and no other."
Notwithstanding governor Colquitt's
report to Washington that he would
send the Texas militia to El Paso, army
officers here regard the situation as

peaceful and believe no more troops are
needed. It Is generally accepted among
those close to rebel headquarters that
no fighting is likely at Juarez at any
time. Mexican government officials
here also say there is no cause for
alarm as they do not intend to dislodge
the rebels from Juarez, preferring to
quash the revolution by holding forces
to defeat the rebel forces at the en

Scientists Entirely Stumped by tne Revelation That Many Creatures LIVE and BREED in Virulent POISONS
Some New
About Deadly
WITHIN the past few weeks the world ot science
has come face to face with an entirely new
set of facts "which are beyond its power to
explain. Somo of the most instantaneously deadly
poisons known to chemistry have been found quite
harmless to certain forms of life. There have recently
been noticed several instances where certain insects
have shown wonderful resistance when placed in situa
tions In which, other varieties would instantly die. 3
The law of special adaptation does not solve the
problem, for special adaptation is only acquired
through long periods of time and the breeding of gen
eration after generation of creatures. Thus In the
case of the worm that lives in the California crude
petroleum, for Instance, it is known, of course, that
petroleum was discovered in California only a few
years ago and there bas been no opportunity for tho
law of adaptation or acquired immunity to become
effective. Science is stumped; what it has Just dis
covered it cannot explain "upon any rational hypo
thesis. If a chemist were asked to name the most power
ful poison he would Instantly say hydrocyanic acid
(pmsslc add) ; yet there exists a family of small but
terflies, or moths, scientifically known as the ZjgaenL
dae, which are not affected by this powerful poison.
They are the only living animals which are immune
to this deadly gas. It will be remembered that this
Is the poison which Richeson used to murder his
sweetheart, Avis Linnell, by giving her a capsule of
potassium cyanide. "When the capsule dissolved in
the stomach the gastric juice acted on the potassium
cyanide and formed free prussic acid.
Dr. Shulze, of the University of Berlin, has recently
made two observations which appear to snow almost
miraculous powers of resistance. (See Zoologischer
Anzeiger, vol. 39, page 199.) a student at the Uni
versity of Berlin wished to Btudy some Hottentot
heads, and had the head3 sent to him from German
South Africa. The heads were placed In tin boxes
covered with a solution of formaldehyde to preserve
them and the boxes sealed. When these boxes were
opened in Berlin a great number of tiny flies flew out,
which were identified as the ordinary "fruit fly" which
collects about over-ripe bananas and grapes (scientific
Drosophila rulrostrtata) . What was even more re
markable was the fact that great numbers ot tho
larvae were found swimming about in the preserving
fluid. Fearing that the heads would be Injured by the
larvae, a saturated solution of formaldehyde was
poured over tho heads, but the larvae were uninjured.
Formaldehyde Is one of the most Irritant and pois
onous gases known. It Is very largely used to dis
infect rooms where there have been contagious dia-

eases, and a 3 per cent solution
is used by most museums as a
preserving solution in which to
keep their specimens. Dr. Wiley
found that even small traces
which were used by unscrupulous
milkmen to keep the milk from
souring produced very harmful
effects This nnn "frnlt flv" is the onlv known ani
mal which can withstand the .effects ot formaldehyde.
Dr. Shulze also had occasion to place some larvae,
of the ordinary "blow fly" (.Zlusca womitora) In a 2
per cent solution of chromic acid. No animal or piantj
was known which, could withstand the action of this.
acid, but the larvae not only lived at the bottom ol
the solution, but they pupated and produced living .
flies. ti
The occurrence of plants wblch live upon insects
which they capture Is well known. Some of these
plants have appendages which act as traps. The lid
of the trap lies open, but when an insect walks Inside
of tho danger line the lid snaps shut and the plant
digests Its prey. When the digestion is complete tho
trap opens for another victim. There aro five species
of flies however (3 cullclds, 1 phorlds, and 1 an
thomylid). -which lay their eggs in the digesUve fluid
of the pitcher plants, and the larvae live here, feed
ing on tho luckless Insects which are captured. These
larvae aro not digested because they secrete a fluid
which renders the digestive fluid harmless to thorn.
The tape worms and other intestinal worms have th0j
same means of stopping digesUve processes.
It is a common report that the Dead Sea in Pales-,
tine and the Great Salt Lake in Utah, contain no'j
animal Hfo because of the great amount of dissolved i
matter in the water. But in Southern California there
is a lake Owen's lake, which contains a3 much dis-,
solved material as either the Dead Sea or Great Salt
T.aire and in addition to this the salt is largely sal
soda' (washing soda). Each gallon ot this water con-4
tains nearly a pound and a half of washing soda, and j
large quantities ot the water are evaporated in order!
to obtain this soda. Contrary to all expectations this
k contains an abundance of animal life, but all of
one sort, namely, the larvae ot a fly .Epnyara tuxs-
Una). These larvae occur in countless numbers, M
that after a' storm they are washed ashore by tha
busheL The Indians collect them after storms and
also by means of dragging screens, or closely woven
baskets, through the water, and dry them In the sun.
They are then ground and baked into a bread which
the Indians call "Koo-cha-hee.'' ;"
It has lately been noticed (Science voL 35, p. lSS)',, ,
that great numbers of a tiny larvae were to he found
in the crude petroleum of California, after it had been
exposed to the open air for a time. These larvae are j
those of the "oil fly" (Paitopo petroll). The adults ap- -parently
deposit the eggs outside of the oil and ths ,
maggots enter the oil a3 soon as they hatch. Tha -probability
is, inasmuch as they feed upon dead flies
and other insects, that they found tho oil to be a
certain source of abundant food material, furnished'
by other insects which had been killed by falling into
the oil. Tho resistant powers ot theso larvao is at -,
most past belief, for they live for more than twenty, -J
four hours when placed in pare gasoline or kerosene
Perhaps Science will soon furnish us with more oS.ij
these instances of the ability to overcome almost-
euro death. Tho entire question arouses such a grea
field for speculation that wo are almost bewildered
The query at once arises "how did these special"
groups develop, and by what power are they immune?"
Take, for instace, the "oil fly." Until recently it was
unknown and certainly could not have always lived
la tho oil. for the oil fields of California are of a very; "
recent date. Wo havo therefore, possibly, a welX
known fly adapting Itself to the new conditions, andi"
by means of this change, so changing its nature so as
to appear to be a new variety. As to why It is in
mune as yet there is no answer.
