Made Cans to Fit Fish Those who opened the world's first salmon-canning factory in Cork, Ireland, about 1850 felt that the only proper way to pack a fish was to can it whole and in its owe snug container. So for several years, notes a writer in Collier's Weekly, they measured each fish and then made a can to fit it. Habits of Tarantulas Tarantulas nest in trees and prowl at night in search of food. In South America they are called the "bird -eating spider" or the "crab spider." They are preyed upon by large burrowing wasps which paralyze them by stinging. The wasps then lay eggs in the body of their victim and carry him ff to their nests. Conservative naturalists say the tarantula's bite is capable of producing "disagreeable symptoms" in a man. The spider has another unpleasant characteristic. His hairs 6hed from legs and body when touched and cause a pronounced irritation of the skin. Observers say the hairs are not poison, but are so fine, sharp and hard they work into minute folds of the skin and a burning, itching sensation.

In view of the present low-prices being received for the 1930 onion crop, Indiana onion acreage in 1937 is not expected to expand materially. Peppermint and spearmint oil production in 1936 in the United Stales was reported to be only about one-half as large as in 1935; however, the carryover of mint oil from previous years has had a large influence on prices. Less Tobacco Indiana tobacco production for 1936, was reported to be 4.714,000 pounds, which is 28 percent below the 1928-32 average, In 1936. the increased activity in furniture manufacturing and in building, resulted in greater volumes of hardwood loss sawed for use in Indiana mills.
