THE PSEUDO-LANGUAGE OF MONKEYS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 27 March 1914

THE PSEUDO-LANGUAGE OF MONKEYS. Concerning the supposed language of anthropoid apes, Professor Boutan has recently taken up the question and arrives at a negative result. It will be remembered that Dr. Garnier canme to the conclusion that monkeys have a language analogous to human language and express themselves by signs as well as by sounds which they emit. According to Professor Boutan. there is only a difference of degree be tween this and human speech and not one of kind. He observed the sounds made by a biggon which he had cap tured when young, and his experi ments cover more than five wears. He finds that the animal can produce only spontaneous and instinctive sounds corresponding to a state of satisfac tion or the like, or again to a state of uneasiness or fear, also great ex citment, and the sounds do not appear to correspond to a real language, but rather to what he calls "pseudo-lan guage." While sounds of real lan guage are acquired 'by education, those of pseudo-language...

FORTUNES REFUSED. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 27 March 1914

FORTUNES REFUSED. It is said that when it became known that the letters of the great Irish leader, Charles Stewart Parnell, were to be published, offers to pur chase them were received from all over the world, and that one great newspaper proprietor in the United States sent Mrs. Parnell an open cheque, upon which she might inscribe her own price. The offer was refused. Robert Browning constantly refused to write ,for the magazines and re views. He only departed from hiS' self-denying ordinance on one occa sion, and that was in aid of charity. In his later days, when Browning so cieties were springing up all over Britain and America. fabulous prices were offered to him even for a short poem. He put all these tempting offers aside and "stuck to his text" to his dying day. But this determination to refuse money when it is offered is evidently not the attribute of the well-to-do onfy, for a laborer in Pennsylvania has just refused two fortunes amounting to £20,000, which actually await...

Of this admirable work Mr. O Malley caused 1,000 copies to be printed, a:nd these have cost the county £5. .,or 11/6 each.--'Argus."

"My boy," said the old man, kindly, as he spoked the 'back parlor doorway about 11 p.m., where his prospective son-in-law, Charles, sat courting Eliza with the gas turned on full force, "are you aware that the moon is shining brightly this evening?

His Honor has discovered that although lawyers are excluded by law, there is nothing to prevent the Wharf-labourers' Union from having the services of the ex-Attorney-Gen eral, Mr. 1W. M.
