BLUE HILL MAN DIES
OF HEAT PROSTRATION
BLUB HI1.U Keb., June ,-(Speclal.)-
Wllllam Shultt, one of Webster county's
oldest cttltens, died very suddenly this
afternoon of heat prostration. He was a
portly man and had mowed grass with
a scythe during the heat of the day.
While very warm he went Into tho house
and drank copious draughts of Ice water,
dying very shortly afterwards. He was
past 00 years of age and had lived in the
vicinity for fore than twenty years.
Funeral of Thomas Andrews, Sr.
CAMBRIDGE, Neb., June . (Special )
The funeral of Thomas Andrews, sr.,
who died nt his home four miles south
east of Cambridge, after an illness of
several weeks duration, was held nt the
Andrews home June 4. Rev. William V
Kelts of tho First Congregational church
of Cnmbrtdge, conducted the services. Mr.
Andrews was past M years of age, and
came to Furnas In 1B71, locating upon the.
'valley ranch, where he lived continuously
t.ntll his demise. He was ono of the first
to locate In this section of the state and
during the forty-three years of his resi
dence here he had become known as one
cf Nebraska's foremost stock Judges and
Gettlno; Near Home.

Cleveland Plain Dealer.
In Japanese tradition thcro Is a story
to the effect that many years ago a
great naval battle was fuught In the .Sea
of Japan between a force of pirates and
Japanese, resulting In the total destruction
of tho pirate fleet. The story continues
that since that day all of the crabs of a
certain species found on that part of the
coast have borne on their backs the face
Of a Japanese warrior.
An examination of one of these crabs
reveals at a glanco the somewhat start
ling visage. Tho human-like face Is not
,bnly there, and typically oriental In ap
'pearance at that, but actually resembles
the face of a drowned man, with open
mouth and greatly swollen features.
Face In nn Knrhone.
Another remarkable example of typical
racial features is found In the earbone of
a finback whale which was picked up on
a Norway beach. It has all 'the features
of a Scandinavian face, of low caste, with
rounded cheek bones, flat nose-bridge,
small upper Hp and receding Jaw. In ap
pearance, however, the face Is more like
a death mask 'than that of a living per
son. That this was not a freak forma
tion Is proved by an examination of the
arbones of other finback vhales at the
Smithsonian institution ln "Washington,
mil of which have substantially the same
In the plant kingdom nilure'J imita
tions are equally astonishing and much
more numerous than in either the anlriiiil
or vegetable kingdoms. There are several
species of orchids, for Instance, bearing
popular names, which suggest the like
ness of the flower to some member of the
animal kingdom, among them being the
'man orchid, the bee orchid, the spider
orchid, the lizard orchid, ami the holy
ghost orchid. Whllo It Is t.'uo that some
of the supposed llkencstus are more or
less imaginative, others :ire wonderfully
distinct and will bear scrutiny.
: This Is particularly true of the l.oly
ghost orchid, which contains within rach
of Its blossoms a pigeon with half-spread
wings. It is necessary to view the bloa

In all of the instances referred to above
the resemblance Is mnlnly vduo to the Hp
ior labellum of the bloom. Now orciilcis
rank, admittedly arpong the most highly
specialized flowers, whllo their extraordi
nary modifications are tho result, largely
if not entirely, of Insect Interference.
Many of these flowers depend 'entirely
upon the visits of Insects for pollination,
and without the aid of these winged em
issaries of cupId they are quite ucihlu to
get seed. The labellum Is the recognized
alighting platform upon which the In
sect stands while it probes the recuses
of the flower In search of nectar, and, ns
orchids are so closely associated with In
sects, we must assume that special
shape of the labellum In each Instance Is
more or less definitely related to the con
venience of the guests that are specially
catered to by the flower In question. In
certain Instances this la actually known
to bo the case. Throughout the great
orchid family the jlabellum exhibits an
almost endless variety of configuration,
and we are Justified in the assumption
that each form Is exactly adapted to at
tract or to uphold a particular kind of
, .-Form Due to Insect Vlntls.
Most young people are familiar with
the canary-bird flower or the common
canary creeper, and here again we llnd
that the unusual form of the blossom
is 'due.' to Insect visits. Tho blooma of
this' croup of plants seem specially de
signed to meet the needs of longtopgtied
moths, which seldom or never settle on
the flower, but hover n front of It,
lightly poised Njn their rapllly moving
wings. While In this posltlm tno tongue

'spur' of the flower whsre the ncctnr
Is 'stored, Meanwhile the head or body of
the moth comes Into wn.a't with the

A very curious plant, whl'it hns been
fturtus since ancient Simo, Is the
"c-.tMan lamb" oth v.."u known ut
the "vegetable lamb," or, by the Chi
nese as the "golden-h:ilrl 'Ik It

A strange plant found In New Zea
land Is known as the "vegetable sheep"
because of Its wool-like foliage. In fact,
the vegetable kingdom offers an almost
sndless variety of curious Imitations.
The seed pods of the common garden
inapdragon look exactly like small hu
man heads arranged on the stalks like
"poles of skull," such as are set up in
certain countries w litre head-hunting is
a popular amusement. These show not
mrrely tho head und face, but dried por
tions of the ncalp. eyelids and HpsT Their
color Is like that of mummied heads.

With the assistance of Trof. jam.es
F. Kemp., tijcplaftr and geologlsl of
Columbia unlvers'lly and Dr. William
Kructlro,, chemist , of the Metropolitan
Musetim. of Art,' It ,ls expected that, the
historic cUrlo will bo preserved. A newly
discovered preservative process for slohe,
which has been tested by both Dr. Kuckro
and Prof Kemp with marked success,
will be used. Xr. Kuekro. who Invented
the new process', and has used It ex

the late Prof. Ogden Doremus tho obe

and other remedies were tried t6o, put

"Cleopatra.,'8 Needle,"as the obelisk was
coipmoniy. kn6wn,' was brought here from
Alexandria, Egy'pt, 6n July 20, 1&S0. by
Lieutenant Cominahder Gorrlnge, .tr. S.

it was trioro severely damaged during that

The obelisk was tho gift of Ismail
I'ashfl, khedtve 6f Egypt. William H.
Vanderbllt paid the,' expense of getting
the shaft, here, about $100,000. The sh(p
DessoUg had Openings cut In the hull so
that tho big stone could be shoved
through the bow upon supports built on
tho bottom timbers ot the hull. The shaft
was unloaded at filaten Island arid car
ried up the East river on a barge. The
obelisk. Estimated by Prof Kemp to be
more than 2,000 years old, is ono of two

the British government, and stands on
the embankment of the Thames river.

PEN MAKING IN THIS COUNTRY
Steel anil Fotlntnin Variety Mnr
' ketrd nt Home and
An American Industry wAlch flourishes
consistently, but which seldom comes into
tho limelight, Is' the manufacture of pens,
of both, stee and fountain variety. The
Halted States uses a great many pens.
We make a considerable number ourselves
and Import many more.
Quill ports were still in use at tho' be
ginning of the nineteenth century. Jn
18C2 steel pens began to appear, but they
were somewhat expensive luxuries. They
cost $2 apiece. They were almost all
made In England. As late as 1S0O England
furnished us with nearly all our steel
pens. Then American makers got to wdj-k
.In earnest, and ot present three-fourths
of the steel pens used In this country are '
ofAmerlcan manufacture, though we still
Import yearly from England about 623,000;
grpss. And we export to different coun- I
tries about t9,55C,C00 steel pens a year.- But '
If we have been successful In turning out I
steel pens, wo have shown less ability in
producing tho steel from which, they are
made. Nearly all this steel comes from
England and Sweden.
Our fountain pen Industries are also ex
ceedingly prosperbus. Our yearly-output
amounts to not fur from 10,000,000 a year.
A great many of there pens find a mar
ket outside of the United States. The use
of fountain pens has Increased rapidly
owing to the perfection ot medium-priced
ones which will not leak when carried in
tho pocket, abd which do not have to be
shaken, thumped and otherwise persuaded
in order to secure a i6w of ink In writing.
It Is not improbable that the time will
come when the American makers will
turn out all the pehs used In this coilntry,
with the exception ot a few Imported to
meet special requirements, There appears
to Le no good reason for using English J
pens In preference to the native article. I
It Is also altogether likely that our steJ I
munaries win one a ay De ame 10 supply
the necessary quality Of steel at a 'price
tbat will save our pen manufacturers
from the necessity 6t going abroad for
their raw maUrlnl. Rochester Chronicle.
