HOW BEETLES BREED FROM OLD TREES. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 14 January 1898
HOW BEETLES BREED FROM OLD TREES. A number of correspondents have asked for information as to where borers and other longicorn beetles come from in places that have appar ently been cleared of all insect life. The Entomologist, Mr. Froggatt, says : — -'Towards the end of last year,' I cut^down a large Queensland chest nut tree in my garden. The trunk and branches were thrown: into the yard where they remained until quite recently. Upon examining them *F found that the dead limbs were riddled with borers, and upon splitting several branches down the centre, I found them swarming with the pupa; and fully developed elephant beetles. There -were some thousands of these insects, and in the natural course they would have emerged in the spring. This is an instance of how dangerous it is to leave dead or dying trees in an orchard ? or garden. Many beetles seem to: have. a wonderful instinct that leads them to a tree as soon as decay sets in, and this is specially noticeable where the bark i...

NAPOLEON BONAPARTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 14 January 1898
NAPOLEON BONAPARTE. He is fallen ! We may now pause before that splendid prodigy, which towered amongst us like some ancient ruin, whose frown terrified the glance its magnificence attracted. Grand, gloomy, and peculiar, he sat upon the imuiie, .1 sceprrea nerinu, wnipi 111 me solitude of his own originality. A mind bold, independent, and decisive — a will, despotic in its dictates, an energy that distanced expedition, and a conscience pliable to every truth of interest, marked the outline of this extraordinary character — the most ex traordinary, perhaps, that, in the annals of this world, ever rose, or reigned, or t fell. Flung into life, in the midst of a Revolution that quickened every energy of a people who acknowledged no superior, he commenced his course, a stranger by birth, and a scholar by charity ! With no friend but his sword, and no fortune but his talents, he rushed into the lists where rank, and wealth, and genius had arrayed themselves, and competition fled from him ...
