WON A SCHOLARSHIP
Some months ago the Florida Uni

that institution to one member of the
boy's corn club in each county. The

over a number of contestants.
An examination will be held after
the week's course at the university,
and the corn club boy making the
best averages at this examination will
be given a year's course free. This
year's course will be paid for by the

sters. lobsters. The poison sting of the scorpion is
located at the tip of the abdomen and
he appears to be fully conscious of his
powerful weapon, R. N. Davis, curator
of the Everhart museum, writes in
Scran ton Republican. When running
alons the ground he holds the sting
aloft as if to prevent injury to it by
striking it against the ground. When
it seizes its prey with its pincers it
searches with the tip. of its abdomen
for a soft spot in the body of its prey
and there inserts the poison stinger.
If the animal is of considerable size
it may sting it more than once. Much
of its food, such as the eggs of insects
and spiders, is obtained without any
use of the stinger. The stinger is also
used by him as a weapon of defense
against larger animals. In tropical re
gions the sting of the scorpion is
dreaded as much as we dread the bite
of the rattler. Although the scorpion's
sting is not so severe as the bite of a
rattlesnake, it Is much worse than the
sting of the bee. Fatal stings by the
scorpion ar exceedingly rare.
I am reminded of the scorpions at
this time on account of receiving re
cently at the museum one of the large
black scorpions from Africa. In Africa
and India are found the largest of all
the scorpions. This African scorpion
is preserved in alcohol and was pre presented

Lewis, she having received it from
Mrs. John Job of Newark, N. J. There
are several other scorpions in the
museum, but none of them approach
this specimen in size.
Scorpions appeared quite early in
the history of the earth, for well-preserved
remains of them have been
found in the upper Silurian in both
Europe and America. They are found,
too, in the carboniferous and these an ancient
cient ancient forms are very similar to the
living species. This is unusual in land
animals. Most land animals show
great changes from one geological age
to the next. Marine animals, especial especially

and in any place the temperature
