Important Discovery Mad by Cali California
fornia California Professor as to Peculiarities j
f Family Croups.
Prof. J. A. Larson, instructor of
physiology in the University of Cali California,
fornia, California, announced a new discovery In
connection with finger prints which is
likely to have a remarkable influence
on many important cases that con- j
cern the law courts of California. i
Briefly, Professor Larson's discovery
indicates that a similarity of finger :
prints among members of a family Is i
sufficiently marked to enable scientists j
to trace family groups and determine
positively whether a given individual
Is really a member of the family to 1

which he claims relationship.
The importance of the discovery In
probate cases such as the Sllngsby ease
Is obvious.
Should Dr. Larson' new discovery
be accepted by law and science, the
Sllngsby decision may be reversed, as
well as many other analogous cases.
Dr. Larson's Investigations began In
1913 at the Boston university.
"Since that time I have examined
prints of members of approximately
100 families," he said, aand I am satis satisfied
fied satisfied in my own mind that such a
means of Identification Is possible. I
am preparing detailed reports of nay
work now In order that science may
be benefited by my discovery. Before
I complete this, however, I expect to
Investigate the prints of fifteen or
twenty additional families so as to re remove
move remove all doubt as to the accuracy of
my discovery." San Francisco Chronicle.

TMT Wtn3 Contest With Dynamite.
A contest whs recently staged be between
tween between 40 per cent dynamite and trini
trotoluene. and the latter won, says
the Scientific American. Two con
crete piers had to be blasted cut and
this gave an opportunity for a coin- j
paiative tost of the two explosives, j
with the result that 14.9 cubic fee
of concrete were removed per pound j
of TNT, and only 14.1 per pound of i
TNT is no doubt destined to be j
used extensively in engineering work,
as it is less sensitive than dynamite,
but greater precautions must be taken
to ventilate after a shot, owing to the J
large amount of carbon monoxide
which i? one of the principal products
of combustion.

Big Devilfish a Victim of the Colonel's
Love of Sport, Either on
Sea or Land.
The fame of the late Col. Theodore
Roosevelt as a'blg-game hunter is well
known, hut he was equally as adept at
killing big fish of the ea. according to
Russel! J. Coles. notx-d big-fish killer.
Attracted by one of Coles' articles
about killing the devilfish, the colonel
appealed to h!m for Instruction in the
art. After talcing several land lessons,
using a rpear vlth which he saw an
African kill a Hon, he finally became
expert, and Mr. Coles formed a party
to hunt the devilfish off the coast of
Florida. In Punrp. Ga, March 23,
1917. There the cdorcl killed his first
devilfish, hitting the huge creature,
which weighed tons, Just two
inches from the spot indicated on a
drawing by Coles, and driving the
spear two feet four Inches through the
heaviest and boniest structure of the
fish. The colonel was standing on the
cab of a small boat traveling nine miles
an hour, and the fish was coming to toward
ward toward the boat at the rato of 15 or 18
miles an hour, swimming about four
or six feet under water. Had the
colonel missed his aim the fish would
have been able, with one of its side
fins, to upset the boat and drown the
fishermen. An hour after his first
catch the colonel killed a second devil devilfish,
fish, devilfish, which was the second largest
devilfish ever killed. Mr. Cole Is a
scientist who has hunted devilfish for
more than 20 years.
