John Obeyed. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 7 May 1914
John Obeyed. Just prior to the balloon ascent, which formed one of the chief events at'a Dig gala and flower show, a deter mined little woman elbowed her way through the crowd towards the car, and began to make a scene. Her hus band had arranged for an aerial trip, and had already taken his set. He hd, however, reckoned without his wife. "My dear good lady," said the aero naut, soothingly, "your husband is quite safe in my hands. I'm no nov ice, you know. I own quite a number of balloons!" "I'm not talking about balloons!" snapped the lady decidedly, "I'm talk ing about husbands. He's the only one I have, and he's not going up in that thing! Come out, John!" And John came out. "There is nothing more uncertain than a horserace," exclaimed the man with a tendency to talk loud. And the melancholy friend remark ed "You never worked in a meteorologi cal office, did you?"

GREENBACKS. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 7 May 1914
GREENBACKS. Few people, perhaps, are aware why the national American- currency is printed with green backs. Ever since the adoption of paper currency it has been the constant study of bank-note engravers-: to- get -up some :plan of printing bills that could not be coun terfeited. .In this they only partly succeeded till as late as 1857, when,a man named Stacy J. Edson invented a kind of green ink, which he patent ed June 30 of that year. It is called anti-photographic ink, because it can not be photographed and cannot be dislodged. with alkalies by counterfei ters to get a complete facsimile of the bills. As it is a secret known only'to the American Bank.l Note Com pany and the inventor, it is impossible to counterfeit the greenback money. Even if .the composition of the ink was known&lt; it- would be of no use, as the work could. not be copied from the genuine bills with any other kind of.. ink..

THE OLFACTORY NERVE"OF" INSECTS A great -numiber. of facts of tthe; ife. o; insects can. hardly be explained ex cepting by admitting a particulariy powerful olfactory sense in these ani mals. The examples are numerous; if. in an ant-hill, an ant of the 'same species as those that inhabit it, but belonging to another swarm, tries. to penetrate, it will immediately be ex pelled. Sometimes the: hypothcsis has been supposed of a sort of lan. guage allowing each individual to make itself known, but deafness .is general in the class, of insects, and ants in particular are. absolutely deaf. Sc then there only remains the odor .special to each swarm which appears to constitute a mode of. identification. In the same way, when the corpse of a small mammiferous animal is be coming-decomniposed in a field, alegion o.F sylphs and necrophors, strangers to the immediate neighborhood,, com ing. sometimes from a distance of several. kilometres, arrive to lay their eggs 'there;, guided, it would seem...
