' lint three young scientists, v,-oiV ing under the U. S. Public Health i Si-tvii-e, have found that n ,;e-.v type mosquito has invaded the .South .-did licit it also is a ciurm ol the fever germ.

Thrives at Itei'lfool Lake Today the Walkcri is as common at Rcelfoot j,a!:e as the Qnad- rimaclilatns. 1-ittle attention was paid (his new insect until DC. C. L. Bnker of Southwestern University at Mi'i \ phis, suspected that it also was i carrier of malaria. Thomas W. -Simpson. Dr. p l( .j crick n. Bank and Griffith B Qninhy—none of whom is past >5 —offered to conduct experiments to determine whether Dr. Baker's sns •picion was true. ^| The odds against success for the " tiiree men were about 20.030 to one. Only the female species carry malaria, and if the insect, did curry the germ it was likely lint not more than 3 per cent would he infected. "If we dissected 2,000 mo.sqni- •toes." Simpson said, "we couldn't expect to find mom than eight or 10 with malaria, and our chances were further reduced because we didn't work jji but one locale." They set 'mosquito traps in swamps, cottonfields and cut »rass areas around the lake. Hundreds of the Walkcri were caught and 530 were placed tinder a microscope before . one was found to have malaria parasites. Tests Helievcn C'onehisive To learn whether Uie malaria in the mosquito was the type dangerous to human beings" or animals-or both-more experiments were conducted. Simpson sat,', in one tent and a bull .cidf was placed in another A f swarm of Wnlkerl mosquitoes were released, After their attack wis over ami they had been killed or recaptured, Simpson counted 270 bites on his body. The calf suffered from only eight bites That was proof enough that the Wal- keri preferred human blood to that of an animal. Trapping of the insects revealed .- «|B'"—"- All Ktiropc fears the [irst birds to herald .sprinis win I JC . birds of ill-omeu, deadly bombers, biinijlm; simiW rains ol death nnd dcslruclinn.

'Hie longer flight of the insect means that in order for persons to be safe from its bite, their homes inasl be more than two miles from the lakes, drainage ditches, creeks and other places Til which the pests breed.

That was the slatsment made yesterday by Mr. j. T . Smith, manager of the Montgomery Ward -store here, in coinmenlin.; on the 1940 Refrigerator and Home Appliance Show which his company will present in this city starting Saturday, starch 2nd. and continuing until March 9th. The show- winch will be held in the Montgomery Ward store, will feature the new work-saving and lime-saving "look" for the housewife which have been developed during the past year by the country's leading research designers and engineers. Outstanding new developments in refrigeration will be a feature of Hie show. These will particularly emphasize the new more beautiful nnd more usable cabinet, as well as many added conveniences that, the housewife will welcome. The "parade of progress" will ako be shown in the Held of electric washers, ironers, sewing machines and vacuum cleaners Washers have been made more efficient, and yet are gentler (linn ever to prolong Die life of fine fabrics. Sewing machines have been improved and beautified, ironers have been made easier to use than ever before and more and more attachments have been added to make the vacuum cleaner a real all-purpose house cleaner. Sir. Smith said that Montgomery Ward is well aware of the function of the American newspaper in telling the public about the value of labor saving devices. And so The Courier News has been chosen as the exclusive ncl-i vertising medium for the 19-10 Re- | frigerator and Appliance Show lit this community. Through this Jiewspaper, Mr. Smith invites his i i friends and customers old and new j 'to visit Wards during the show j and inspect all the new home aids. I —Adv.] Sirange things have grown in sprint; gardens, but even Biirbank in his wildest moments of experimentation never dreamed llint someday a earden would produce fruit jars of pickled snakes ami turtles. Such items turned up yesterday in the garden of W. W. Martin n't 11B East Cherry street. As he was digging, he struck glass which paid olf in five bottles of lurtles am) snakes and two or three bottles broken in (he ground which were not resurrected. In one fruit jar is a larue rat- tlesnnke. This is the main feature of the museum of natural history which has been established at the Moore and Bickerslalf store. Also on exhibit are three jars of turtles iind a jar of small snakes, all put up in alcohol. Questions and solutions make tip the neighborhood talk. Whether a high school l>oy placed them there or whether they were huri?d years and j-ears ago by n scientist is only a guess, hut Ihe snakes and turtles arc actualities as Gardener Martin and others in the neighborhood can testify. •COURTS Divorce suits filed in chancery court recently: ffclcn Clark vs. Paid Clark.

I.—Interesting jmgcs of the pioneer history of South Mississippi County were turned backward this week with the visit of L. C. Acrcc of San Francisco, Calif., who was in town .Monday and Tuesday making the acquaintance of those wh'o "knew of the life and history of his grandfather. Dr. Jolin 'c. Arree. pioneer physician of the French- mini Bayou nnd F.vadale cjoiiimu- uilies, nnd Airs. Acree. The visit of Mr. Acrcc. who wns returnmi; from n hiisiness trip to Chicago, ivim entirely sentimental, since he had never visited the see- tion where two Kenerations of his ancestors lived nnd helped develop this fertile set: I Ion. He brought along a camera hoping to get some views of the old home, family graves nnd any oilier snots con- i.'eded vvitli Ms family history but like most of the ante-bellum homes of that day it had lonr; since been deslro.ved by fire and n tenant house stood on the spot. The majestic walnul and oak trees tint ••ire.vf an the lawn had also met the usinl fate of such spots and Ijeen made into firewood or lumber. Only the stiinii) of tlic walnut tree under whieli his ernndfalher was litiricd and one half ot his tombstone were found. Mr. Acree look wilh him pieces of ihe roots from wliieli he plans lo make hookends nnd paperweights for his desk. The original farm of 320 acres lyiiiff !do;],<; the old Kvad.ile-Bards- lown road tetwcen Ihe Davies and Ito.elle places is now owned by Mrs. Anne Tlioinn.son nf Memphis and farmed by Dudley Lynch of this city.
