The brown rat, prebably brought
to the United States from England in
1775, spread until it now infests every
State in the union, say the biologi-
cal survey of the United States De-
partment of Agriculture. The last
State to become infested with this
pest is Montana.

1 Strange Signs of Ships.
Strange signs which frequently
hang from ships puzzle even dwellers
in seaport towns. A basket slung
from the mainmast head is a sailors’
sign to notify that the cargo has been
loaded or discharged, as the case may
be, and that the ship is ready to start
on her next trip. A generally mys-
terious emblem is a broom lashed to
a mainmast or bridge railing. This is
to signify that the vessel is for sale.
Houdini employed the ideas of
Thomas A. Edison in developing a
contraption which would fake the seni-
blance of thought transference.
The secret was that Houdini wore
an electric belt which established an
invisible connection, by electro mag-
netic induction, with loops of wire
concealed under a carpet. When these
loops were “energized, by the current
of a telephone circuit, invisible lines
of magnetism, cutting across the
turns of wire in the electric belt, gen-
erated a minute electric current. This
currant was the exact counterpart of
the one which energized the wires be-
neath the carpet.
It was the sum total of this induced
electrical energy which vibrated the
diaphragm of a miniature telephone
receiver and reproduced speech.
The trick was to pick up utterances
of “thought transmitters” by means
of “
peat these utterances on a strong tele-
phone circuit terminating in the loops
under the carpet where Houdini stood.
nothing supernatural about them and
that he could do as well himself by
“natural means.”

the opposing armies. One day Lomas
brought a man to Sheridan and intio-
duced him as Mr. Renfrew, who also
wished to serve as a spy. Just then
Sheridan wished to have some bridges
destroyed and sent the two men out
on this mission. He secretly assigned
a scout to watch them. Their attempt
failed, but they had plausible explana-
tions. They were sent out again after
Sheridan had taken pains to let them
know there was to be a big fox chase
on a certain date in which many of
the officers were to take part. It was
a ruse to throw the Confederates off
their guard when the spies should
carry the report to them. At the time
mentioned Sheridan had planned to
strike hard. The men were shadowed
and found to have gone to Confeder-
ate headquarters. They were arrested
on their way back but escaped. When
Sheridan saw pictures of Booth after
