of - loping off eipenses, Professor Otto
Heohelmeyer, the well known philolo
gest, etomologist and geologist, of
Berlin, but now residing with a friend
on North Broad street, pear Thompson,
tells a Record reporter of the . discovery
of, a new and wonderful insect, which
he names the amen anthracittut which
means coal-bug. E The ' , Professor had
related discovery some. weeks ago to
Mr. Sayre, of the Lehigh Valley Road
to Mr. Thomas, of Bright, Tionias &Co.
and to Mr. David Foy, 'the:confidential
agent of the heading Road, hoping
that some means would- be :`taken taken to

of having them introduced into the
residences, warehouses 'Or* factories of
private consumers, thereby - endanger
inglife, limb and'property.
After considerable hesitation the
Professor consented to relate to the re
porter his experiences — with this insect.
He said that taking the result of Pro
fessor Agassiz's discoveries in mid-ocean,
where he found that minute corpuscles
threw off their shells„ and these grow
ing together formed immense deposits,
it - is not surprising that Professor
Bodagash, of Stockholm, whom he met
in Gottingen last .year, should appear
with a new species of bug which might
be considered as : a decendant of the
prehistoric tree-bug, and which is now
found in coal in great quantities, and
threatens to undermimany valuable
coal beds. "It is very noticeable,"
said Professor Hechalmeyer, "that the
so-called coal dust is pecnhar on account
of its round appearance. 'Uttort exami
nation with the microscope it is found
that these' particles are covered with
millions of these - cinze.z withracilvs.

The female is broad and has nine

"You have often noticed," said the
Professor, "that when coal is first
placed upon a lire, or when it is ignited
there is a crackling, hissing noise, and
pieces fly about in the grate or range.
This is caused by the •death struggles of
these insects. The more of these there
are in coal the quicker it: barns.
Housekeepers often wonder why it is
that one ton of coal will last longer
