SERIOUS FLOOD IS THREATENED HEAVY RAINS CAUSE RAPID RISE IN OHIA ANO WABASH RIVERS. Chicago, Feb. 18.—One of the cold est waves of the year struck Chicago yesterday. The heavy snow storm of Friday and Saturday has been fol lowed by intense cold and six inclles of snow on the ground adds to'the rigors of the cold snap and impedes traffic. The entire country is swept by wintry storms of unusual severity. Snow has fallen as far south as Louis iana and Texas and the temperature has tumbled to a point that has brought on much suffering in the usually mild climate.

COLOR IN THOUGHTS. GIOLITTI RULES ITALY. Wonderful New Invention Reads Secrets of the Brain. Apparatus Devised by Washiuston Sclenitist Proves Tliat Every Thonvhit Has Corresponding Color la Chronimtlc Scale. The latest—and if all that is said about it is true—the most wonderful addition to scientific knowledge in a long time is the discovery of Prof. Elmer Gates, of Washington, D.

If practical in its operation and cer tain in its results, the use of the ap paratus, says the Chicago Tribune, will undoubtedly have the greatest in fluence upon the treatment of mental diseases and prove of great value to criminologists as well Prof. Gates is well known in the {scientific world as the possessor of the finest private laboratory and work shops sou...

The biggest tree in the world has just been found by a woman. The tree has been named Methusa lem, though its age is probably much greater than was that of the oldest man of history.

At one place it is nearly 50 feet in diameter. The largest tree known heretofore is 108 feet in circumference one foot from the ground and 93 feet around at six feet from the ground. The monster was discovered last August near the Gen. Grant national park, and was measured by John Muir, the noted naturalist. It was then con sidered a world marvel, and even Cal ifornian...
