counted anecdotes today of ths man
whose discovery Is accounted one of the
moat .valuable yet made in medical science.-
As a lad. Dr. Flexner was not
accounted of superior intelligence, said
Mr. Flexner, yet he always worked at
things in a manner different from other
members of the family.
"We did not think he was especially
bright when he was a boy," said Mr.
Flexner, "although we knew that he
had a . mind acting Independently of
others. . - ...
"While a eloae student, he did not
seem brilliant, yet his later work has
revealed that he is possessed of a
strong, active mind which glories In re
search work. We used to think that he
spent a great deal of time doing things
that were not worth while. - But he
has gone far ahead of others since leav

field snd since has been In charge of
the John I. Rockefeller Institute In

the Maclesy building, saw much of Pr.
Flexners work st Johns Hopkins uni

of 18S. Dr. Whiteside, spoke very
highly of Dr. Flexner this morning snd
said that he wae working along the

Cerebro-splnal meningitis, of which
there was such an eplderaio in Portland
last winter,- is considered one of the
destfltest diseases known to the medical
profession and It results fatally In

Flexner's discovery is said to be a sure
cure for the malady, having been tried
in nany cases, all of which resulted in

There are two principal elaasea of
earthquakea; . those which are of -vol
canle origin and those which arise from
tectonic, or mountain building, move
ments of the earth's crust.
The volcanic quakes, as the name
Implies, occur in districts of active
voicanlsm and originate not far below
the surface, probably . at deptha of
wia two mues. -
The characteristics of a volcanic quake,
says Discovery, are a rather definite
point of origin, or "centrum," a com
paratively, restricted area of dlsturb-
ary- after shocks.
Tectonic or dislocation earthquakes
are practically confined to those nor.
tlons of the earth's crust which are
still undergoing changea of elevation

ng forces, bucq quakes are usually

are seldom visible, though - they are

although they are propagated with dif
ferent velocities, they are not always

' Did you ever try to pronounce an
Indian name and then wonder whether
you had come anywhere near the correct
pronunciation T Try this rule; Plao a
dash after each vowel In the word and
then . pronounce each syllabi slowly.
Note the smooth flowing sound pro
duced and then gradually pronounce
the syllables faster emtn you get the
entire word grouped. , Tou will be sur
prised both at the ease with which you
get the word and . the affect In . pro
nunciation. The most difficult Indlsn
name Is readily pronounced la thla man
ner. Nearly all Indian names of towns and
rivers have some particular significance.
The namea of towns In Indian Terri
tory will perpetuate Indian history for
centuries. Only yesterday a new town
was named Neha. This Is a Creek word
and means oil town. It was given
to a aiding put in on the railroad a
few miles south of Muskogee In the
new oil field.
"We" In Greek means water. It Is
found In many namea In the Territory
and the significance attaches to the re
mainder of the word. For Instance, here
are a few: Weleetka means running
water, and Wetumka means bounding
wster. Both ara towns -on the Frisco
Railroad. Wealeaka, the home of the
Creek chief, means falling water. We-
chsrtameans red -water.

Creek mind the same Impression that
deserted village does to the English.
It was the name of a town In the
Eastern home of the Creeks and also a
town of that name, or what waa a
town, located in Indian Territory.
There la an Indian school there.
To the Creeks the Arkansas river was
Weoharty, because the water la red,
and Deep Fork was Hutchety Soofkey
because It Is deep. The Verdigris was
Waacre Hutchety because the Osages
