THE OLFACTORY NERVE OF INSECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 7 May 1914
THE OLFACTORY NERVE OF INSECTS. A great number of facts of the life o. Insects can hardly be explained ex copting by admitting a particularly powerful olfactory sense in these ani mals. The examples are numlnerous; if in anl anllt-llill, an ant of tile sace species Ps those that inhabit it. Lut belonging to another swarm, tries to penetrate, it will imnntmlediately be ex polled. Sometimes the Ilypothesis has beeoon supposed of a sort of lan. guage allowing each intldividui:l to make itself known, but deafness is general in the class of insects, and ants in Iparticular are absolutely dleaf. Sc then there only remains the odol special to each swarml which appears to constitute a inodlo of identilication. Int tile same way, cwhen thile corpse of a small Inalnniferons ainilual is be colmilg lecolnposed ill a fieldt, a legion of sylphs an1ti neerolthors, stranlgers to the imnediate nlelghborhood, coln ing sollletilmes frolm di tlstance of several kilomnetres, arrive to lay their ef'gs tl...

A Sspecimen transplanted into moss and if rlch earth will thrive in the house if kept very moist, and it mtakes the best kind of fly-trap, for it is always on duty and looks after itself. As tile older traps lose their vitality fresh shoots appear and new traps are de veoloped. The Venus fly-trap is regarded as cne of tle greatest wonders of the Splant .world, for it seems to exercise a dlscrihlnatlon of taste that is mtore than nunlan.

CRANBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 7 May 1914
at CRANBOURNE. oC The ratepayers are not at all enamoured of the introduction of the e, Width of Tires Act restrictions to ig this shire, as advertised in your last of issue. It seems farcial that only r. 6 cwt. may be carried on a dray, :d while 6 tons may be piled on a four er wheeler. It is quite a common td occurrence to see two tons on a dray, re and I would like to know what will s- be the cost of carting road metal, a gravel and sand if the contractor is in only permitted to put 6 cwt. on a as dray with a lead of say a mile ? And r. what will the poor " spud" carters of is Koo Wee Rup and the onion carters e of Cranbourne think of it ? To my g mind the sooner the order is repealed the better. I venture to say that at next election the retiring candidates would be "outed " on the question if it were made a test one. o The continued dry spell is making n people apprehensive. The late rains o have barely penetrated the surface y soi!, and the waterholes in many >f paddocks ar...
