numbers, preparatory to migrating in
search of food or for change of con

ney they stick themselves together by
means of some glutinous matter and

reaching a length of between forty and
fifty feet and several Inches in thick
ness. , A tbe sciara is only on an av
erage' about three thirty-seconds of an
inch in length, with no appreciable
breadth whatever, the number required
to compose a continuous line of the
size above mentioned is almost incal

slow, and upon meeting an obstacle,
such as a stick or stone, they will

times breaking into two bodies for this
M. Guerln-Meneville, a celebrated
French naturalist, said that If the rear
portion of this wonderful snakelike

formed the insects will keep moving
round in that circle for hours without
apparently noticing that they are 'get
ting no "forrader' on their journey. If
the procession lie 'broken In two.'' tbe
portions will reunite in a short time.
The Norwegian peasants, when they
meet one of these trains, will lay some
