COLONEL OOETHALS, as civil
governor of the Canal Zone,
has adhered to the policy he
maintained during the engi
neering wont m ins region.
that the isthmus shall he a game
preserve, and the zone is proving a
rich field for naturalists. Several
months ago H. E. Anthony accompa
nied an expedition to the zone, and in
the American MuBeum Journal he
writes interestingly of what he found
It was expected, says Mr. Anthony,
that faunal conditions in the Canal
Zone would be undergoing abrupt
changes because of the damming of
Gatun lake and the consequent ex
tensive high water. From a basin
with no lake worthy of the name,
with standing water confined largely
to marshy areas except during the
height of the rainy season, the Gatun
region has been transformed by the
huge dam at the locks into a lake of
164 square miles in extent and a depth
of 70 to 80 feet in many places.
Animals Seek New Home.
This flooding of ground formerly
high and dry, it was anticipated,
would drive many animals to seek
new homes or might even threaten
some of the more restricted, lowland
living animals with extermination. In
cidentally many of the islands and
ridge crests left above water might
have a concentrated fauna driven
there from the adjacent flooded local
ities. Other phases of the question
dealing with the newly created lake,
were the wiping out of the lowland
forests by submergence, the rise of
new aquatic flora such as the water
hyacinth, and the probable inhabita
tion of the lake by water birds. Such
were some of the items in the purpose
of the expedition and we were
equipped to take advantage of these
new conditions if the foregoing as
sumptions proved correct.
As Gatun lake was the center of
investigation, It was planned to work
Newly Flooded Foret
from a houseboat as a base camp with
a launch and small boats for side
trips. Late afternoon of March 6 saw
us leaving Gatun with the houseboat
and by three o'clock the next morning
we were tied up at the head of a wa
terway or trocha that branched oft
from the Rio Trinidad. This was our
main camp and we hoped to be able
to work the undisturbed Jungle from
"Black Howler" Monkeys.
It was at this spot that we made
the acquaintance of the largest of the
Panamanian monkeys, the "black
howlers.". Frequently their queer
booming, roaring, howl echoed through
the jungle, a call that carries for long
distances. They howl oftenest Just
before or during a rain storm and the
natives thus look upon them as weath
er prophets. Upon one occasion I
stood almost under some trees through
which a troop was passing, while the
first big preliminary drops of a sud
den shower pattered upon the leaves
about me. The volume of sound that
Issued from the black shaggy throats
was so great and so suggestive of a
large animal, a lion for example, that
I found it hard to reconcile myself to
the actual facts. I felt a pang of re
gret at silencing one of the "howlers"
but as a specimen was needed I shot
one of the foremost and heard him
crash through the limbs to the ground.
Pangs of a more effective sort were
experienced when my native boy and
I attempted to retrieve the monkey,
for ho had fallen underneath a bees'
nest the size of a bushel basket and
we found the nest too late to avoid It.
Other Interesting mammals encoun
tered here were the pretty squirrel
ike marmoset the ihort-halred ant
ii a, ; , ; j
eater and several species of opossum,
while we were continually wondering
at the variety of the bird life and the
diversity of the bird songs and call
notes. The noisy parrots that shouted
In the morning until the Jungle rang
with their tumult the grotesque tou
cans which at times vied with the
parrots, the calling of the parrakeets
and the peculiar choruslike calls of
the chachalaca, or "wild turkey," pro
duced an Impression that must ever
be associated with Jungle memories
At night mysterious noises were heard!
from unknown sources and one weird
laughing call In particular caused con
jecture to run rife, there being as
many opinions as there were listeners.
Besides the work done on the Rio
Trinidad, several long trips by launch
were made up the Rio Chagres, one as
far up the river as the launch could
ascend and two others up the Rio
Chllibrillo to some limestone caves
Jungle Almost Impenetrable,
Whenever one left the waters of
Gatun lake the dense, unaltered jun
gle was at once encountered and no
matter how much its beauty was to be
admired from the boat, its impenetra
bility was no less to be deplored. It
was useless to attempt to leave the
trail without recourse to the machete,
the long brush knife of Latin America,
and many were the varieties of briers
and thorns to be avoided. Once into
the thick growth of the Jungle, the
hunter found It necessary to stand
minutes in one spot in order to look
into all the arboreal nooks and cran
nies, so many were the possibilities, so
many the great orchid-covered limbs
and wide branching trees, and so loath
to move the denizens of the Jungle.
The orchids and epiphytic air plantB
were -very abundant and became so
heavy a burden at times as to break
down the limb or even the entire tree
that harbored them, and not infre
quently I witnessed the downfall of
some tree overburdened In this man-
on the RioTRinidad
ner, once Indeed, warned by a pre
monitory cracking, I was forced to
move with considerable speed to es
cape a flying limb.
Mosquitoes, the former bane of ear
ly canal days, were found but spar
ingly. Even outside the district of
government patrol we were bothered
but little by them, although we were
told that later, during the rainy sea
son, they were much worse. A few
spots were encountered where mos
quitoes were bothersome, thus arguing
a local distribution. The ticks and red
bugs however made up In diligence
for any slights we might feel we had
Buffered from not being met by mos
quitoes. The Jungle everywhere
seemed to harbor these pests and they
did all they could to make life miser
able for us. AntB also were found In
abundance and It was fortunate in
deed that our camp was a floating one
and thus cut off from inroads of these
nuisances. One species of ant in
particular will be long remembered by
two members of the party, for It stung
with a venomous vigor never equaled
by any bee and made the victim im
agine he had been struck by a snake
Concentration of animal life had
taken place at the rising of Gatun lake,
and most of the Islands formed had
many Inhabitants at first. The Gatun
Hunt club however soon reduced the
population of these islands by hunting
them with hounds and as the quarry
in most Instances could not leave the
Island the result was a clean sweep of
all the larger species.

English scientist found It could draw

NO DEMAND FOR SUFFRAGE
Peasant Women on the Northern Coast
of France Are Acknowledged
Rulers of Community.
On the northern coast of France the
peasant women are more remarkable
than the men, and they are far better
It is they who drag the boats in and
out of the little harbors, and who sell
the fish in the markets. They are
thus brought into contact with the peo
ples and civilizations of all countries,
and no class of women in Europe is
They are strong and robust, and

its for they belong to the sea as
much as do their menfolk harden
thier bodies, at the same time giving
them a taste for all masculine pursuits
They rarely quarrel with their hus
bands; indeed, the latter would fare
badly did they attempt coercion or ill
treatment in any shape or form, for
the women are taller than they are
and quite as strong; so the "mere
men" of the French coast prefer to
keep their skins whole, and treat their
wives as "Jolly good fellows," which
is exactly what they are.
They sing their songs and enjoy
their glass of cider with the best of
GAIN LIVELIHOOD FROM SEA
French Fishermen at Home In All Wa
ters Have a Brotherhood That
Is Worth Emulating.
Besides sailing to the uttermost
parts of the earth in pursuit of cod,
herring and mackerel, the French do
a large trade with the fish in their own
Of these there is a great number,
including two sorts of skate, mackerel,
soles, turbot, brill, plaice, Sounders,
bream and oysters, i
There are three classes of fisherfolk
in northern France. Some of the men
have their own boats, and they hire
what assistance they require, buy theii
own nets, find their own bait, etc,
others hire a boat between them and
each man gets so much, while the rest
goes to the owner; the third class are
too poor to do anything but sell their
The boats vary in size from five to
fifty tons and generally nine men form
The brotherhood existing among
them extends . beyond death. The
widow of one of their number has a
right to send out her nets with the
boat to which her husband belonged,
and her share of what is caught is
scrupulously handed over to her.
Aid to Sleep.
There are two very simple but ef
fective remedies for that kind of sleep
lessness that comes from overwork or
nervous exhaustion, says Nurse. One
is to have the feet very warm. Put
them against a rubber bag filled with
hot water. A rubber bag is better
than an earthen bottle as It will re
tain the heat for hours. The second
method is much more simple. Discard
the pillow, turn over and He on the
stomach with hands clasped under the
forehead to lift the head a trifle. This
will often send one to sleep.
When you are tired and nervous,
good rubbing all over the body with
the lotion here given will be very rest
ful. Lie quietly in bed after the rub
bing for half an hour and you will
then feel quite equal to taking up the
daily tasks again; here is the lotion
Diluted alcohol, six ounces; cologne
water, six ounces; tannin, ten grains.
Poisoned Seeds Make Odd Plants.
Observations on plant variation
from poisoning of seeds have been
reported in France by Prof. A. Jungel
son. After being placed for one to
twenty-four hours In a dilute solution
of sulphate of copper seeds of maize
were planted, and a considerable pro
portion yielded abnormal spikes, the
percentage of the abnormal plants be
ing greatest among those from seeds
that had been deprived of their seed
coat or otherwise mutilated before ex
posure to the copper solution.
The mutilation alone produced no
change in the character of the plants.
The more intimate the contact of the
poison the greater was the tendency
of the plant to take on new forms.

something that no man wants to part

There comes a clear day when one
realizes that clothes are to keep the
weather off you, that food 1b to give
you health, that home is shelter and
inspiration; that, aside from being
clean and inoffensive, one's personal
appearance does not signify very
much; that the main thing In life Is to
