Much to the surprise of n scepti-4 cni public, the "divining rod con gross" just hold at Hallo (Germany), has attracted an extraordinary amount of attention from serious German scientists. The congress was called together to determine what scientific basis, if any, there is for the aucient theory that underground spriugs or de posits of ore can he located by the use of the "divining rod/' The members included a large num ber of agriculturists, geologists, and geographers from all parts of the u'orld, including not only Kurope, but Africa and America. Professional '"Rutonganger," or ex perts in the use of the "rod," were also on hand to give the benefit of their experience.
