TAR PAPER TO
A correspondent from Venango
County wrote to Prof. H. A. Surface,
State Zoologist, Harrisburg, Pa., and
asked "if tar paper would be all
right to put around young trees to
protect them from the rabbits which
are very bad this year.'-' Tho in
quirer 'added, "I expect to use slat
ers' felt and wrap them with good
strong cord so it will hold." To
this communication Professor Sur
face replied as follows:
"It will be all right to put tarred
paper around young trees to pro
tect them from rabbits and mice. I
can say that this can be done all
right if the papers are removed in
the spring, but if they are left
abound the trees during the summer
they protect 'the woolly aphis, which
is lloblo to become a serious pest,
and also certain insects that may
injure the trees, and also that make
the bark tender, and liable to in
jury, from various pauses. "In other
words, I recommend them for use
only during tho winter.
"Take a piece of paper of such
size that it will make a collar, and
lap over when bent around tho tree.
Tie it in place by the use of several
strings. See to it that there is no
rubbish in the way of leaves, weeds
or grass standing under it. In other
words, push it down into the loose
earth and mound other earth around
it an inch or two. Remove them in
the spring time."

Who says that adventure is dead?
Only the other day a motorist and
his wife were taking a turn through
the forest of Fontainbleau when
they got a "turn" of the sort they
hardly bargained for.
They found themselves being am
bushed by a Hon, and wo know on
Shakespearean authority how im
pressionable the fair sex is at the
approach of that kind of "wild
fowl." The, woman promptly faint

No sooner had madame revived
than they encountered a panther.
This was too much of a good thing.
Monsieur was about to say so with
all his Gaelic eloquence when the
explanation turned up.
A troupe of pseudo Arabs with
bernouso and spear came up to ex
plain that they wore working off a
lilm for a cinema firm, and the
beasts were drugged.
It was a sorry climax, but it all

MJ3MOIIY PliAVED ISTRANGE
In later life Emerson's memory
played him some strange tricks. Jas.
Cabot, his biographer, says that he
met him one day in tho streets of
Boston, apparently at loss for some
thing, and asked him where he was
going. "To dine," said Emerson,
"with an old and very dear friend.
I know where she lives, but I hope
.you won't ask me her name." Then
he went on to describe her as "the
mother of the wife of the young
man the tall man who speaks so
well," and so on, until Cabot guess
ed to whom he was referring. Em
erson was often at a loss for the
names of common objects. Once,
when he wanted an umbrella, he
said, "I can't tell its namo, but I
can tell its history. Strangers take
it away." This failing led to a pa
thetic scone at Longfellow's funeral.
After gazing long at the face of his
lifelong friend, as he lay in his cof

THE MOST NEEDED INVENTIONS
A communication sent to the Sci
entific American by P. E. Edelman,
Minneapolis, Minn., will undoubtedly
interest a number of our readers.
His list comprises the following
most needed Inventions:
1. An electric light as efficient as
2. A storage battery as cheap as
dry cells, light, efficient, and fool
proof. 3. A new product which will uti
lize or require the use of vast quan
tities of chlorine to advantage.
4. A wireless telephone which will
cost no more and use no more power
than the simple sets now used on
short inter-communicating lines.
5. A glass or substitute therefor
which will withstand strains with
out breaking, without losing the
6. An economical crude oil engine
light enough and adapted for auto
mobiles and similar service.
7. Cheap substitutes for leather
and rubber which have the properties
of the natural material and which
can be made on a large scale at low
8. A lifeboat which will not sink
or capsize and which can bo launch
ed safely in a heavy sea.
9. Means to prevent railroad
wrecks which will, within human
error, prevent such wrecks entirely.
10. Heal cures for consumption
11. A detector for radio commun
ication which without sacrificing tho
sensitiveness, rigidity, and practica
bility of present long distance types,

his neck became sore and commenc

to retire from work temporarily and

Hartford, Conn., Nov.. 27. Pto
maine poisoning from eating a gray
squirrel which is known to have eat
en chestnuts from trees affected by
blight is given as the cause of the
death to-day of Everett O. Hale, son
of Mr. and 'Mrs. Addison Hale, who
livo near tho Manchester line.
Although Mr. Hale, who was a
cousin of John H. Hale, the peach
man, had not been well of late, it is
not thought his previous condition
caused his death.
Six other persons have died in
Connecticut this fall from eating
Mr. Hale was seized with con
vulsions Monday night. When the
seriousness of his condition was
realized Dr. Thomas G. Sloan was
summoned. All efforts failed to re
lieve the man and he died in a con
vulsion. Dr. Sloan was positive thaj; death
was caused by ptomaine poisoning.
This at first seemed improbable, as
he had eaten nothing unusual. - Up
on learning, however, that Mr. Hale
had eaten some squirrel and that the
chestnut blight was prevalent in this
section the doctor decided that the
squirrel had eaten affected chestnuts.

EXCAVATIONS AS A CAUSE
We note that in a contemporary
journal a correspondent has made
the suggestion as to the cause of the
recent earthquake shocks in Pan
ama, which is more ingenious than
it is convincing. He draws attention
to the fact that over 200,000,000
cubic yards of material has been re
moved from the Culebra cut and de
posited elsewhere. This, he argues,
involved a readjustment of weights
on the surface which, taken in con
nection with such heavy blasts as
that of forty tons of dynamite, which
was used to destroy the Gamboa
dike, may have had some predispos
ing effect on the recent earthquake

Miss B. Tolan, 142G Spring street,

months ago when suffering from

other symptoms of kidney trouble,
I procured Doan s Kidney Pills at A

When Miss Tolan was interviewed
at a later date, she said: "I still

kidney sufferers. I know of other

know when the monster is hooked,
as its frantic rushes, if allowed to go
unchecked, are pretty sure to cause
some part of the line, leader or even
a part of its own anatomy to give
way, and result in its escape. The
old scheme of tying the line around
one's big toe and going to sleep prob
ably would work, all right so far as
rousing the fisherman was concern
ed, but tho sequel might not leave
him in a condition to give undivided
attention to landing his prize. To
this end the officers and sailors have
hit on an ingenious plan. Instead
of taking in their lines when the
