An attempt is to be made to trans-plant the ild Xarragansett c'.am into the estuary mud flats. i This clum, the most elusive and , the most silent of its species, has ! been imported into Oakland by. Fred- erick Buegle and Martin Iiielil. and a strip of land owned L'V Kiehl on the waterfront is to bt used for the new experiment in propagation. - "These claims,'' said Buegle, 'ire the clams that- gave rise to - the expression "Silent as a clam," Hoegle further recites that the silence in one of the Xarragansett clam beds is so , intense that it is almost deafening.. j "There is one way only to catch them," recites the amateur naturalist and press agent for Luther Burbank. "You take a redwood plank with a knot-hole and lay it over the place you last saw the clam. 'When he seeks to come to the surface for food ho will creep through the knot-hole,' and you scoop him off quick. The 1 same knot-hole cannot be used for ' more than one clam, for they get wise when they scent another clam. The clams, if they grow here, will aid the redwood industry." PANES WITH Mlinsfl. LONDON, Dec, 25. Hundreds of Danes are fighting with the Britisn troops in GalUpoli, according to Captain Percy Hansen, a Briton of Danish parentage, who has Just received the Victoria Cross for his bravery and enterprise under fire. These Danes emigrated to Australia and New Zealand. A large number of Danes in England also have enlisted in the British army.
