GIGANTtC SPIDERS OF INDIA.
Spin Webs in Which Small Birds Be
In the mountains of Ceylon and In
dia there Is a spider six inches long
that spins a web like bright yellowish
silk, the central net of which is five
feet in diameter, while the support
ing lines or guys measure sometimes
ten feet or twelve feet. Riding quick
ly in the early morning you may dash
right into it, the stout threads twist
ing around your face like a lace veil,
while as the creature that has woven
it takes up its position in the middle
it generally catches you right on the
nose and, though it seldom bits or
“tings, the contact of its large body
and long legs is anything but pleas
ant. If you try to catch it. bit it will,
and, though not venomous, its Jaws
are as powerful as a bird’s beak, and
you are not likely to forget the en
counter. The bodies of these spiders
are very handsomely decorated, being
bright gold or scarlet underneath,
while the upper part is covered with
the most delicate slate-colored fur. So
strong are the webs that birds the size
of larks are frequently eaught in
them and even the small but power
ful scaly lizard falls a victim.
Honor Belongs to German Chemist.
It was in 1747 that the German
chemist Marggraf (1709-1782) discov
ered the existence of sugar in beets
and recommended that they be culti
vated in order to produce sugar; but
almost fifty years elapsed before prac
tical results were obtained therefrom.
In 1796 Dr. Franz Karl Achard, a pupil
of Marggraf, having succeeded in ex
tracting sugar from beets in commer
cial quantities at a cost so as to en
able it to compete with cane sugar,
the then ruler of the world’s markets
erected the first beet sugar factory at
his farm, Kunern, near Steinaus,

In the other. It was built and en
dowed by a misogynist of the Stuart
period, who objected to having his
devotion disturbed by the hated sex,

division in his deed of endowment.
