The Difference. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 7 May 1914

The Difference. "If you wish to distinguish between the death oC a barber and the death of a sculptor, how would you do it?" asked Jack Merriless. "I don't know. Perhaps you will en lighten me," said his pal, Bob Syrm "Well, to put it concisely. I should sum it up like this. The barber curls up and dyes, while the sculptor makes faces and busts." A lively Irishman was once invited to a large dinner party in Dublin In Ihe hope that he would amuse and di- ; vert his host's guests. But from the beginning to the embo'" the dinner he' preserved a solemn ni.T &'■ serious face. The host thought this very strange. "Why, old fellow," he remarked, "I don't believe the .biggest fool in Ire land could make yon laugh to-niglit." "Try," was the wit's cutting rejoin der. Two unilorgrailiiutes were walking by the banks of the Wcy, when one of thaiu, v.ho had a taste for botany, plucked a plant from the hank, re marking that "it was a rare one."

GREENBACKS. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern 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 o! printing bills that could not be coun terfeited. In this they only partly succeeded till as late as 1857, when c 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 Note Com pany and the inventor, it is impossible to counterfeit the greenback money. Even if the composition of the ink was known, it would be of no use, as the work could not be copied from the genuine bills with any other kind of ink.

At the Fire Station. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 7 May 1914

At the Fire Station. He was undeniably from far beyond the suburbs, and as he was walking along a City street he stopped in front of the fire-engine house and looked in. "Have many fires in town?" he asked. "Yes, wo have them pretty joften," replied the fireman. "Ever try to see how quick you can liitch-up?" "Oh, yes." At that moment an alarm came in. At the first stroke of the gong the men rushed to their posts, the doors of the stalls opened, and within a few seconds men, horses, and engine were speeding down the street.

THE OLFACTORY NERVE OF INSECTS. A greai number of facts of the life o." insects can hardly be explained ex cepting by admitting a particular^ powerful olfactory sense in these ani mals. The examples are numerous; i£. in an ant-hill, an ant cf the sani: species as those that inhabit it, tut belonging to another swarm, tries to penetrate, it will immediately be ex pelled. Sometimes the hypothesis 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, ami ants in particular are absolutely deaf. Sc then there only remains the od<>: special to each swarm which appears to constitute a mode of identification. In the same way, when the corpse ol p. small mammiferous anima! is be coming decomposed in a field, a legion oi" sylphs and necropbors, strangers to tiie immediate neighborhood, com ing sometimes from a distance of several kilometres, arrive to lay their ej;gs there, guided, it would sr-em,...
