THE BURYING BEETLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Kerang Times — 17 January 1890

THE BURYING BEETLE. A NATUA.LIST gives ait very interesting account of the industry of this insect. Io had often lnoticedc that dead moles, when laid upon the ground, especially if upon loose esrtb, were aliost sure to disappear in the course of two or three days, often of twelve hours. To ascertain the cause, he placed a mole upon one of the beds in his garden. It had vanished by the third morninig; and on digging where it had been laid hlie found it buried to the depth of three inches, and under it four beetles,. which seemed to have been the agents in this singular inhuuiition., sot perceiviig anything pirticular in the iiole, be buried it again; and on exnaining it at the end of six days ie found it swarming with maggots, aplparently the issue of the beeItles, which hte now natunrally concluded had Iuried the carcase for the food of their future young. To deternine these points more clearly, lie puit four of these insects in a glass vessel, half filled with earth iandl properly ...

MISCELLANEOUS READINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Kerang Times — 17 January 1890

.,rMISCELLANEOUS READINGS. A LErTTEn timely writ, is.a rivet.to the. chain of affection, and a letter, untimely delayed, is as rust to the solder. - Sur nsrrrIoa itself records no vainer reliance than the trust in intellectual cul ture as an adequate antnagouist or controller to tihe passions and impulses, which are the dynamics of our nature, and in their ad justment constitute character. No way has been "found for making heroism easy, ev-en for the scholar. La bour, iron labour, is for him. The world was created as an audience for him; the atoms of which it is made are oppor tunities. THAT which we are we shall teach, not roluntarily, but involuntarily. Thoughts come into our minds by avenues which we never left open, and thoughts go out of oar minds thlrough avenues which we never voluntarily opened. Character teaches over our heads. I no not object to a wholesome pride of ancestry, though a little mythical, if it hbe aecompanied vith the feeling that noblesse 'lultr, and does no...

LET US MAKE A BEGINNING AT HOME. A SATURDAY SONG. [Newspaper Article] — The Kerang Times — 17 January 1890

LET US MAKE A BEGINNING AT HOME. A SATURDAY SONG. We Britons of to-day have a fidgety way Of exploring wherever we can; To France is a skip, and to Russia a trip, And it's only a jaunt to Japan. But it's strange, is it not, that there's one little spot That does not appear on the chart? ow we 've seen all the rest, I would haunbly suggeast We might just take a peep at our heart. I lay no emubargo on Troy or Chicago, You're free as a swallow to roam: Btt, volatile rover, why wholly pass over That queer little corner at home? The cry for Reform is the roar of a storm, And everyone joins in the cry; In the yard of the State there are dust heaps so great Tlhat ther cannot be suffered to lie. For a vigorous broom there is plenty of roOtm; But would it the cleanning retard If we eachl made a sweep of our own little heap, And then galve a hand at the yard? Oh, folks of this madte age, just hark to an adage, With wisdom enough for a tome: In till kitndls of sweeping, the rule to be keeping ...

TITLES OF HONOUR. 1 ýW. w. c. rP 1 .0: .A.OGo barbarous nations there are no e family names. Men are known by titles of honour, byvtitle:sof disgrace, or by titles p given to them on account of some indivi ilual quality. A brave man will be called the lion, a ferocious oneithc tiger. Others 0 arm named after a signal act of their , lives, or from some peculiarity of personal k appearance; such as;tlie slayer-of-three- , bears, the taker-of-so-many-scalps, or c strglit-limbs, long-hose, and so on. Some of tleso-especially such as express ap- f probation or esteem-are worn as proudly by their savage owners, as that of duke or marquis is by European nobles; They n confer a distinction which begets respect b and deference amongst the tribes, and indi viduals so distinguished obtain the places i of honour at feasts; they are the leaders in k battle. It is nearly the same in moderm I civilised life; titled personages are mucli , sought after and fited by the tribes of un- t( titled; and a...

THE FIRST ASCENT OF THE , MATTERHORN, By W. C. P. a Tint ascent of Mont Blance is no longer ti regarded as a feat of mountaineering worth t making any greaLt talk about. It has I hecome so common that we should scarcely ii like to face our friends on our return from a n Swiss tour if we had to confess that we p had not achieved it. Yet, it is scarcely s more than a hlundlredl years ago since the v mountain was supposed to be unsealanle. n The credit of being the first to subdue it is 3 tue to Dr. P'accard and the guide, Jacques n lalmat, who made the ascent in 1786. 3 Since then" the monarchl of the mountains" 1 has been ascended many hundreds of times. Ii and has become the fashionable resort of r those adventurous spirits who are fain to Ii ill up the intervals of fox-hunting at home s in winter by thie more hazardous sport of a Alpine climbing at home in summer.

SCIENCE AND ART JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Kerang Times — 17 January 1890

SCIENCE AND ART JOTTINGS. IT is reported that a Dr. Eisenmann, of Berlin, has invented a piano which, by the aid of electrominagnetism, can sustain, in crease, and diminish sound. This has been attempted by other experts, notably Boehm, the inventor of the metal flute. Another novelty will be that by moving the electro magnets the timbre of the tone is changed; for exam ple, from that of a violoncello to a piccolo. If true,weshallprobablyhearmore about this novelty anon. A sTansTrcoCA and political economist says that in 1816 it took just one bushel of corn to buy one pound of nails, now one bushel of corn wil buyten pounds of nails. Then it required sixty-fourbushels of barley to buy one yard of broadcloth, now the same amount of barley will pay for twenty yards of broadcloth.
