An interest In,- proof of this was provided a few years ago in the case of a forged will. An enlarged photograph rrveal edt the pencilled lines over which the signatures of the testator and wit nesses had been written, although no trace of them was visable through the microscope. This is one of the" peculiarities of the camera, that it brings to light marks which are in visible through a microscope, just as. it has been known to reveal the eigns of measles and smallpox several days before they became visible to, the naked eye. When a forged,signature is esupect ed, the method adopted is to tate photographs of the genuine and sup posed false sagnatures, magnify each a hundredfold or more, and compare the results.

LANGUAGE OF INSECTS. WINGS VIBRATE 440 TIMES A SECOND. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 3 May 1918

LANGUAGE OF INSECTS. ---e WINGS VIBRATE 440 TIMES A SECOND. Insects, like birds and animals, have their calls. But the sounds they produce include the rubbing together of their limbs or wing covers and the vibration of their wings, so they .can not always be spoken of as voiecs. FUles and bees undoubtedly mean something when they hum louder and louder. Landolse, the famous naturalist, has calculated that to prodLce the sound of F by vibrating its wings, they vibrate :352 times a second, and the bee to create A vibrates 440 times a second. A tired bee bums on E sharp. This change is, perhaps, involuntary, but undoubtedly at the cmmrnand of the will, and is similar to the voice. When seeking honey a bee hums to F sharp. ' Landoiso no ticed three different tones emitted by insects-a low one during flight, a higher, one when the wings are held Eo that they cannot vibrate, and a higher one yet when the insect is held so that none of his limbs can be moved. No music is as familiar as that...

A IAZOIUAN ATCHERY. A.lIUNTING T'IP AND A JUNGLE SOLOMON. The uncanny skill of the Amazon n-Idians with poisoned arrows won the awed admiration of a traveller, ,who was cured of jungle-fever by the ,Mangeromas after his comrades hod .succumbed to' beriberi and- poisonous swamp snakes. In his, book, "In. the Amazon Jungle," he describes a han ting trip that 'he made with two members of the tribe: We had scarcely gone a mile, when .we discovered on the opposite bank of the creek, about one hundred and fifty yards away, a wild hog rooting for food. We were under cover of the bush, but the hog was in full view. Almost simnltaneously my com panions fitted arrows to' their bow strings. Instead of shooting point blank, and manipulating the bows with their hands and. arms, they ?laood their great toes on the lower end of the bowstrings, and with 'their left arms gave the proper tension and inclination to the bows, which ,were eight feet long. With a whirr the poisoned arrows shot forth, sai...
