Nature. REVENGE BY PROXY. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 19 May 1882
R;lature. : Intelligent animals rarelyresent the severity of a trainer who once has made them feel his power; but that their forbearance must re quire a great deal of self-control is proved by the fact that they sometimes revenge them selves upon a proxy of the tyrant,-his friend or a favorite pet. After a knout-drill some hunting-dogshave an ugly way of falling upon their comrades, or even upon their own puppies, resolved to "take it out" of some body. Sick horses often kick the stable-boy by way of getting even with the farrier; and Irememberan amusing instance of an animals, appeal the code of the lex talionis. During the winter season the Botanic Garden of Brussels is used by the proprietors of various peripatetic menageries as a zoological dipit, where the caged travellers can recuperate and enjoy the hospitality of the city on condition of exhibiting their charms gratis. Sick animals often stay the year round; and a few years ago the managers took charge of a baby elephant who...
ELECTRIC LIGHT GOOD FOR THE EYES. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 19 May 1882
ELECTRIC LIGHT GOOD 101 THE. BTES. ACCOnDIL' to a writer in the' Scientfic American, when electric light fist began to be used in our shops, factories, and places of amusement, it was confidently asserted by its opponents that so dazzling a light must be injurious to the eye. It appears, however, from the experiments recently made by Pro fessor Cohn, of Breslau, whose name is so familiar in connection with the investigation of color-blindness and other optical defects, that our eyes will be benefited rather than hurt by the new method of lighting, and it is obvious that with incandescent electric light ing the advantages will be still more marked. While testing the influence of electric light on visual perception and the sense of color, Dr. Cohn proved, he thinks, that letters, spots, and colors were perceived at a much greater distance under electric illumination than by gas-light, or even daylight. Compared with daylight, the electric light increased the sensa tion of yellow sixty...
Science. RECENT EXTINCTION OF THE MASTODON. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 19 May 1882
%cience. RECEr? EIxorc"ON OF nc ASTfODON. THn existence of the mastodon in North America must have been more recent than commonly supposed. A number of new facts bearing on this subject are to be found in Professor John Collett's " Geological Report of Indiana for 1880," recently issued. Of the thirty individual specimens of the remains of the mastodon (Mastodon gigeantes) found in. Indiana, in almost every case a very considerable part of the skeleton of each animal proved to be in a greater or less state of decay. The remains have always been dis covered in marshes, ponds, or other miry places, indicating at once the carse of the death of the animal and the reason of the preservation of the bones from decay. Spots of ground in this condition are found at the summit of the glacial drift or in "old beds" of rivers which have adopted a shorter route and lower level; consequently, their date does not reach beyond the most recent changes of the earth's surface. In fact, their existence...
Agriculture. AGRICULTURE AS A BUSINESS TO PAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 19 May 1882
-Agriculture. SAGRICULTURE AS ABUSINESS TO PAY. st. oLD COMrItaf. THE fashion, lately not so prevalent in England, to go into farming, as a species of amusement, or as a change from the other occupation of the party concerned, still pro vails in the colonies. What, from the facility with which land can be obtained, the difficulty of investing spare cash in a safe and profitable manner, men invest in land who, under different circumstances, might never own an acre. The earth hunger which is said to afflict.our race, is fully developed here; and, w?in. once a piece of land is acquired, it has to be improved in some way. We go to see it, taking the sweetheart, or the wife, with, it may be, some of the olive branches also, and the chances are that we are smitten with the natural beauties and freshness of the surroundings. A liking to live there is aroused, and, in very many cases, other busi nessis dropped, and the man who becomes the owner of the land, it might be by accident, finds hi...
