Wasp v. Spider. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 13 November 1914

Wasp v. Spider. The spider which pursues insects is sometimes pursued in its turn by nnother insect—tho wasp. It is a contest between jaws and stings, both poisonous ; and as the posses sor of tho stings has a coat of mail in addition to his weapon of o(Tcnce,the poor spider is .dragged oft, often only half dead, to fur nish food for tho offspring of the wasp. One wasp in particular is very daring and cunning. It is about as long as a bluebottle fly, but much moro slender and active. It preys chiefly upon trap-door spi ders. Carefully searching until it finds a nest with the owner at home, it* goes boldly into the tun nel, and so irritates the spider that she gives chase, whereupon tho wasp makes for tho door, and rushes away with tho spider in pursuit. When the wasp has got tho spider a few inches from the door, it suddenly turns, there is n wrestle, • the deadly sting is inserted, and the spider is disabled as if by a stroke of para lysis.

In Days of Yore. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 13 November 1914

1 Maundy Thursday, the day before Good Friday, has from the begin ning of the Christian era been marked by acts of humility. It is in consequence of acts of charity, however, the distribution oi food in baskets, or maunds, that the day came to bo distinguished as Maundy Thursday. In many parts of England a popular name for the day was Shear Thursday, from the custom of shearing the hair which tho priesthood used to observe. In olden days tho customs of Maundy Thursday were most reli giously observed. Cardinal Wolsey, in the year 1530, at Peterborough Abbey, "made his maund in our lady's chapel, having fifty-nine poor • men, whose feet he washed and kissed ; und, after ho had wiped them, he gave everyone of the said poor meri twelvo pence in money, three eels of good canvas to made them shirts, a pair of new shoes, a cast of red herrings, and three white herrings."

Williamson, a Consul in China, to know that eggs weighing over four ounces are produced by an ordi nary hen of no particular breed, fed on corn and kept in a confined enclosure. This, however, is mot a daily performance. The fowl re ferred to is a black hen, of no particular breed, but resembling a Langshan. She lays an egg weigh ing four ounces or over it least every third day for about a week or ten days during which no eggs are laid. The smaller eggs averago I six to tho pound. TJie shell is brown, with a circle of dark spots near one end. Other hens bought in the market average six eggs to the pound, with white or brown eggs, there being no standard, of co'ursn. V-'hat these hens could do if fo'l and cared for scientifically cannot be told, but they should be wonders. It is common to buy from Chi nese eggs that will average s'x to the pound, though smaller ones are also plentiful, but ...

Times Too Bad. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 13 November 1914

The Bhow season is just aboul drawing to a close (says a writer in a contemporary), and from a finan cial point of a general all-round loss has been sustained by the respec tive societies, the full extent of which may not be ascertained until the balance sheets are issued. The drought, of course, has been the main cause of the falling off in revenue, for some people were not inclined to spend money in gaiety when, bad prospects loomed ahead. It is no doubt a wise plan on the part of poor, landless people, to exercise economy and to save money by refraining from attend ing shows, but what will be thought of an ex-president of an' pgricultural society in a town on the Broken River—a man who owns three farms, has two motor cars, and holds over 1000 bsgs of last season's wheat, who, in retnrn ing the £1 ticket forwaided to him, wrote: Dear : — S >rry I cannot take this ticket.
