Ita methods of operation are Interest
ing. The mature beetle bores through
the bark of the tree and excavates a
gallery In the Inner living bark and in
ttte outer surface of the'wood. In which
It laya its eggs. When hatched each
young larva, or beetle grub, channels
into this growing portion of the trunk,
feeding upon the Inner bark. When
tall grown the larva, after paaalng
through a dormant or pupal atage, be
comes a beetle. This beetle then drills
wt through the bark In July and.

dead pine trees In the midst of a moun
tainside of green.
In fighting this forest scourge the
method recommended by the bureau
of entomology Is followed. The simple
removal of the bark of Infested trees
between Otober and July, while the
larvae are still In the tree, is sufficient
to kill them. The lumber may then be
sold while it Is yet sound. On the
Ochoco forest, however, there was ro
market, and the forest officers found
that the cheaper and more effective
method of control waa to cut the trees
end burn them before the new broods
of beetles r-ould emerge. In 1012 tho
Infestation was given a decided check
by the cutting of 8,600 trees. This
summer forty-two laborers in charge
of a forest officer cut more than 40.000
trees. As a result of these vigorous
measures tlie government apparently
has thj- I »ft I es under control.

The Big Problem of Putting a Girdle
Around the Earth.
The German colonial office Immedi

upon which the crystal was found,
and a great number of the crystals
are now making their appearance upon
the German market. Experts agree
that the new gem is entitled to rank
with the ruby or emerald.—Popular
Chicago's Funeral. Motorbuses.
The high cost of dying is to be low
ered In Chicago with the advent of
motorbuses, epch large enough to
contain the coffin and a funeral party
of ordinary size. The funeral bus
will have a compartment to the right
of the chauffeur's seat for the coffin
and above It a place for flowers. Near
the driver will sit the minister and
the undertaker, and there will be ac
commodations for twenty-seven mourn
ers. One of the principal items In the
cost of funerals is transportation. The
funeral bus, it is said, will reduce the
cost by $30 Ten of the buses are to
be in operation soon.

mind us that the floating drydock Is a
Dutch invention, and. that many float

Dutch ways and towed to their des
tination Drydock towing is a spe

are towed to their destination by
Dutch tugs.—Scientific American.

GRAIN to the
According to Professor .1. A. Fleming,
several of tlie most powerful wireless
stations are now generating ether
waves, having a length from crest to
crest of about four miles, ami these
disturbances can he "detected" at
distances up to 1,000 miles from
their source. That is. four such sta
tions would sullii-e to girdle the
earth Obviously, however, the ability
to "detect" the signals over this vast
distance, presumably under favorable
weather conditions. Is very different
thing from the power to maintain com
mercial communication along the route.
As yet the wireless service available
to the public covers but a third or at
most half this distance
There is as yet no means of deter
mining the practical limit of wireless
communication. Improvements In ap
paratus, perhaps even some new dis
covery as to methods of stirring up the
ether, may revolutionize the art and
upset all present standards. But at
present even the most successful sys
tems get into serious difficulties when
called upon to maintain constant com
munication over a line about 2.000
miles in length. A recent British wire
less commission was able to secure
but one demonstration on a line a
thousand miles long, although several
companies declared their ability much
to exceed this distance In a commercial
installation.—New York Post.
HELIODOR, THE NEW GEM.
Experts Say It Ranks With the Ruby
•nd the Emerald.
A hew gem. given the name of "beli
odor," and found in German South
Africa, has taken Its place among the
jewels. The German kaiser recently
gave one of the stones to the kaiserin.
The discovery of the new stone was
made by ^he governor and director of
the German colonial society while he
was traveling in German South Africa.
In the sand near the railway between
Swakopmund and Windhuk he found
a large crystal, rough and unpromising
In appearance. He carried it with
him to Germany and had it cut and
polished in rf diamond cutting factory.
The result was a surprising clear, pale
aquamarine of great brilliance.
