FOSSIL FORESTS IN AMERICA
This Country Has Three of the Four
That Arc Certainly Known
There are only four "fossil forests"
areas In the world, three of which are
In the United States, the other being
near Cairo, Etrypt. Of the fossil for
ests In the I'lilted States, one Is near
Callstoga, Cnl., several extensive for
ests are In the i'etrllled Forest Nn
tlonnl monument. Arizona, and the
others are those In Yellowstone Nn
Though the whole history of the
process of fosslllzatlon Is not fully un
derstood, It H probably dependent
upon entombment of the tree In iiki
tcrltils saturated with water cnntnlnliu
n considerable amount of silica In sola
tlon. This slllca-chargeil water wnv
drawn up Into the wood by cnplllarltN
the silica being deposited In the eel's
and vessels of the woml after the wa
ter evaporated, making nn nceiira'c
east of nil open spaces. Then, while
the slow process of decay went on, as
each particle of organic matter wns re
moved, Its place was taken by the slllea
until flmilly all the wood substance
had disappeared and Its place atom by
atom had been taken by silica.
The forests of the I'etrllled Forest
monument nre geologically much older
than the others; those near Cairo,
Egypt, are believed to be the youngest
The Arizona forests belong probably
to the Trlnssle period. Therefore
these trees may have been burled be
tween 5,000,000 and 15,000,000 years
RED CORAL USED AS DRUG
Belief In Efficacy Originated in Old
Times and Only Comparatively
Recently Was Abandoned.
The red coral of the Mediterranean
sea Is mentioned by some of the ear
liest of the Greek writers. Orpheus of
Thrace mentions It In a poem as a
valuable remedy for the sting of scor
pions and for snake bites, and its mys
tical origin Is described by Ovid. The
myth that the coral is soft In the water
nnd becomes hard when exposed to the
nlr persisted until the Seventeenth cen
tury. It was used in early times by
the Mediterranean races not only as a
Jewel and as an amulet for resisting
fascinations and as an antidote for
the stings of scorpions, but, nccordlng
to Dlosorldes, It was used as a medi
cine for the spitting of blood and for
Red coral, powdered and burnt, was
regarded as a very valuable drug for
almost every kind of disease during
the Seventeenth century, and It re
mained in the British Pharmacopoeia
until the end of the Eighteenth cen
tiry, and was still sold In chemist shops
as late as 1812.
Ended Critical Situation.
In front of the only vacant scat on
the early morning subwuy reposed a
small handbag and u suitcase, the
latter pressing Itself against the knees
'of a male passenger who occupied the
next seat. Another man entered the
car and sat down, and as the owner
of the luggage made no attempt to re
move it the newcomer was obligedto
sit with It under his knees.
He looked uncomfortable and turned
with an Inquiring look to the man be
side him, who seemed oblivious to the
glances directed at him.
, At last he could stand It no longer
and again turned to his neighbor.
"Hang it, man!" he exclaimed, "if
you must tnke suitcases into the sub
way you might at least keep them
under your own seat!"
The other was about to reply, when
the train drew Into tlio Times Square
station. A woman passenger on the
left of the uncomfortable one arose
and, smiling, stooped down.
"Pnrdon me," she said, "I'm getting
1 off here and those bags are mine."

Keating Car Wheel Tires.
For heating railroad car wheel tires
before mounting them by the shrink
ing process, an electrical method Is in
use In France In which the tire forms
the secondary of a transformer, being
heated by the Induced current. The
transformer hns two laminated horizon
tal arms, one above the other, connect
ed by a pair of vertical cores. The up
per arm Is pivoted and counterbalanced
so thnt It can be swung around to per
mit the introduction of the tire. It Is
then swung back, putting the trans
former Into operative position.
Any woman can make any man do
anything, If she can only persunde him
that ho Is doing something really dash
ing nnd daredevil. Rut I admit It
does take a clever woman to persuade
11 man thnt there Is something dusking
and dnre-dovlllsb In attending n vil
I never had the bump of nmbltloa.
As long as n woman loves her hus
band, nnd hns enough to eat, I can't
see thnt It matters In what order she
walks out of a drawing room. From

A good floor wax Is made by melt

when mixed, a half-cupful of ummonla.
Cover closely the saucepan containing
It and set outer vefwcl of hot water at
the back of the stove to heat It for ten
minutes. Apply warm with a piece of
flannel and polish with a. rough floth.
