HOW THE ANT SALUTES. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 4 July 1914

HOW THEI ANT 8ALUTE8, Ants have long been Jtiown for their excessive Industry, but from a curious communication which has just appeared they seem to have surpasse. ed all other insects by organising an elaborate system of lsignalling. Professor Bugnion, who has recent ly investigated tile habits of the white ant, reports that the "soldiers" of that specles give warnlings or encourag ing signals by knocking with their Jaws upon dry leaves, thereby emit. ting a crackling sound. Placing some of these ants on a big plate and cov. rling it with paper, he found that the "'soldiers" among the ants responded to his taps with a rustling, crackling soulti. ,Moreover, apart from tlhis audible signalling, there appears to be some intudlble form of signal, for the pro fessot asserts that the "'soldier" ants sal tie the \wolorker ants. T'o do this, "the IACCeet tatids firm ly on its legs with the headl raised and lthe body ulightly ollique, andll shaksu itself for an instanit with il convulsive s...

BRAINS IN THE FEET. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 4 July 1914

BRAINS IN THE FEET,. The necessity for combining Intelli gence witll muscles and nerves ;n athletics is emphasialsed by Mr, E. W, Hjortberg, coach of the Swedish Olymn pic team, In "Athletics in Theory andl Practice." All those who train wirlh the idea of winning prizes on the ath* letic track, he says, should always reoember that thle brain plays an iaw portant part in training as well as in contests. He points out that nla the old days it was usually held to be enough to train the body, and the more drastic the training the mlore likely success was thought to be. Nowadays it it necessary, if a man has to win success on the track, that he should have ",brains in his feet," as the saying goes. Mr. Hjertberg points out that many contests have been lbst by good athletes just be cause they did not think quickly or accurately enough. To.day, in training, brain and neryes are given even more attention than tihe body. Furthermore, an athlete is allowedl to think for himself and is al lowe...

"BUFFALO" JONES. KNOWS WHAT ANIMALS THINK, Colonel "Buffalo" Jones, the fam ous American huntsman who in his time has captured lions, rhinoceroses, hippopotaml, and panthers alive and unhurt with a lasso, has gone at the head of an expedition to the French Congo to attempt to bring home to Eiurope, for the first thnime, a full-sized gorilla. \W. Beach Thomas in Lon don "Daily Mail" writes as follows about this remar{able man: Buffalo Jones is certainly the most astonishing conqueror of animals that has ever lived. Daniel and Samson, as Mr. Roosevelt said, were nothing to him. I asked him the secret of some of these conquests, his scientific as well as his physical conquests, which make tame. anything that Ballantyne or MIayne Reid concocted; and at the age of seventy he is setting out with a list of now adventures that would more than fill an ordinary lifetime. The conquests are as various as notable. He has roped alnost every wild animal there is-rhinoceroses, lions, cheetahs, zebr...

AN M.P.'s ANECDOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 4 July 1914

AN M.P,'s ANECDOTES, Many good stories were told by I) Maenamara, M.P., recently, when he gave some of his "Reminiscences and Reflections" at the Herne Hill Congre gational Church, with Sir Albert Spi cer in the chair, Beginning with the barrack.room at Montreal, he was alternately serious and humorous, On the one and only day he played truant at Pembroke Dock his mother went to ask the schoolmaster if he could leave early to go out to tea. "And this," he. re marked sorrowfully, "I have always regarded as hard lines," Half the failures in life, he said, are those of people who fhought they could do something else better, Thh was his first reflection. And so, al though he wished to 'be a soldier, he did his best as a pupil teacher. At Exeter he was taught singing by a lame man who waved his stick threat. eningly when his pupils did not grasp a melody quickly. This lent itself to Dr. Macnamara's first witticism, for this, he thought, must be the meaning of the "staff notation," He bro...

ANTICS PLAYED BY LIGHTNING. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 4 July 1914

ANTICB PLAYED BY LIGHTNING, T' o antics played by lightning are sometimes almost beyond belief, A common trick Is that of undressing its victims. In 1898 two girls and an elderly woman were standing by a reaping machine durlng a storm. A lightning flash struck the woman and killed her on the spot, while the two girls were stripped to the skin, even their boots being torn from their feet. Otherwise they were safe and sound -and astonished. In 1855 a man was struck by li' ning near Vallerois, in France, and stripped naked. All that could be found afterwards of his clothes was a shir't.sleeve, a few other shreds, and some pieces of his hob-nailed boots. Ten minutes after he was struck he regained consciousness, opened his eyes, complained of the cold, and inquired how he happened to be naked. Such instances have been recorded again and again. In one case a man a'nd two oxen were struck simultan. cously, and all three killed. The man was found stripped to the skin, and his boots had bee...

The local news dissomina tor "Tlhe Leader," in its issue of Sat urday last, made a big splash. The ink was purple, the style of get-up good and the local adveortisers rose to do occasion.

VERY TOUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 4 July 1914

VERY TOUGH. Here is a story from "Law and Laughter." Lord Mansfileld was try ing a ease in which an old man named Elm, who was upwards of eighty, gave ils evidence with remarkable clearness. It turned out that he had been through life an early riser, and had led a singularly temperate life. The Chief Justice, In a tone of ap. proval, congratulated him, and made the remark that without such habits longevity was never attained. The next witness proved to be this old man's brother, who was more ancient than himself. He also 'bore himself well in the witness-box, and the Chief Justice rushed to the conclusion that he was equally exemplary in his hab Its. But the old man declined the compliment. He said he liked to lie in bed late ,and clinched the matter by adding that he could not rememo ber a night when he had not gone to bed without being more or less drink. The barrister, who was on his feet, caught at this admission, anld ex claimed: "Al, my lord, this old man's case supports thie ...
