Evolutloh of the Hut.
The conical hut of the reindeer
epoch, built of branches and twigs, suc-
ceeded the cave. The main prop of
these earlier huts was a tree, around
which branches were fastened, the
spaces between the twigs being tilled
up with rushes, turf, grass and clay.
Man was then able to cut wood with
stone axes, to combine various ele-
ments for the protection and defense,
and to become a more powerful ag-
gressor In the animal kingdom. It
was a step, and but a step, In ad-
vance. Then followed the third and
last period of the stone age, represent-
ed by the cavernous dwellings con-
structed of gigantic monolithic stone,
and roofed over with tho rough
branches and trunk of trees. The fam-
ous dolmens, cromlechs and similar gi-
gantic structures of stone, hitherto
supposed to be the work of the Druids,
are now believed to-be the remains of
the neolithic age.

The Firet Headlight.
The first headlight wus carried not
by a locomotive, but by n winged In-
sect—the lantern fly. Nobody knows
Just why the lantern fly carries a lan-
tern. Very likely it Is for the pur-
pose of notifying Insects of like spe-
cies and opposite sex of Its where-
abouts. But the contrivance Is wholly
unique of Its kind. The front part of
the lantern fly's head Is extended In
such a way as to form a hollow, bulb-
ous structure that (in a dead-and-
O o o dried specimen) has a paperlike con-
sistency. When the insect flies at
night the papery bulb Is Illuminated.
By what? Nobody can say, except that
It Is a phosphorescent light, and the
Dickson, 657 N ' nature of that Is a puzzle to science.
