Hew the Reptile May Have Got Ita
fhere is a very ancient belief that
the reptile known as the salamander
4s proof against Are. It Is not known
how this superstition had its rise, but
it will probably always continue to be
held by some people, although it has
been conclusively shown that the fire
proof qualities of the creature exist
only in imagination.
Dr. Stejneger, reptilian expert at the
Smithsonian institution, tells a story
which may furnish a reason for the
continuance of the belief in question
"Once 1 was camping out," he says,
"with a party cf friends, hunting and
fishing. We had lighted a big fire.
using for fuel several old logs. While
we were seated around watching the
progress of some cookery in which we
were engaged a young lady at my
side gave a little scream and pointed
Into tbe flames. I looked, and there
was a small salamnnder crawling
right out from ansuig tbe glowing
embers. It walked away unhurt and
made its escape.
"Now, that salamander had occu
pied a hole in one of the logs used
for fuel. Several species of its kind
live in old tree trunks. Doubtless this
one found that it was getting uncom
fortably hot and crawled out. Being
moist and slimy, its body was protect
ed from injury by fire long enough to
enable it to escape through the em
bers. But the sight of the lizard de
liberately making its appearance from
the midst of the fire was certainly
very surprising. Any ignorant person
might easily have been led to imagine
that the creature was fireproof. It
seemed to me quite probable that the
siijierstifion took its origin from Just
such occurrences." New York World.
MEN WHO MAKE SAFES.
Closely Watched After They Resign or
A number ef years no two prospec
tive safe breakers succeeded in obtain
ing employment In two different sufe
factories, worked over a period of
years !u the various departments, gain
ed all the Information that they desired
and. subsequently working together,
managed to baffle tbe safemakers by
their skill In opening complicated safes
in different parts of tke country.
Tbe police were at ls to understand
how tbe safes bud been opened, and
only upon the apprebensiou of tae two
men several years later was it learned
that the Jo'.s had not been "inside"
ones, as was originally suspected, but
hid really been the work of two men
who had beep initiated Into the mys
teries of eaf"craft and bad put their
knowledge to criminal i:se.
This put tbe safetnakers on tbeir
guard, and an exceedingly complicated
system was immediately put into force,
whereby not only was the pedigree of
etry workman loosed into closely, but
the wo-k among tbe employee was so
separa .ed that no one man or two men
could father enough irformatlon about
a safe to put It to dangerous use after
ward. Furthermore, wheu an employee
is discharged or when be voluntarily
leaves bis position hi- actions are
watched, and. although safe companies
refuse to discuss this particular point,
it is a matter of record that any for

is possessed of intimate information
regarding the. Berets of that com
pany's safws is kept under constant

by tbe experience of a Maryland man
wbo had reHd a story aBout an owl
wringing its own neck by looking at a
man who was walking around him.
Tbe Mary lander decided to experiment
along these lines and so procured a
fine specimen of an owl and placed
elm on a post.
It was not difficult for the experi
menter to secure the owl'a attention,
for the bird never diverted hla gaze
from the man while tbe lutter was
present. The man began walking rap
idly around the post a few feet from
It, keeping bin eyes fixed upon the bird
all the while.
Tbe owl's body remained motionless,
but his bead turned exactly with tbe
man's movements. When the man
was halfway round tbe owl's bead was
directly behind. Three-quarters of a
circle were completed, and still the
same twist of the neck and the same
stare followed tbe man.
Oua circle and no change. On tbe
man went, twice around, and still that
watchful stare and steady turn of the
hend. Three times the - man wenf
around, and he began to wonder why
the owl's head did not drop off. when
all at once tbe man discovered what be
bad failed to notice before.
When tbe man reached a distance
halfway around from the front, which
was as far ns the owl could turn his
head to follow the' experimenter's
movcoents with comfort, tbe owl
whisked it back through the whole cir
cle so lns'antaneonsly snd brought it
facing tbe man again with such pre
cision that tbe latter failed to detect
tbe movement, sltbougb be was look
ing Intently all the while at tbe bird.
Tbe Marylander repested the experi
ment many times afterward on tbe
same bird, and be had always to
watch careful'y to detect the move
ment of tbe readjustment of tbe owl'a
gaze. Philadelphia Record.
