Observation shows - that there prevails in the lower grades of animal life jost as strong an inchnation to avoid unnecessary labour as is found among more highly developed animals. Just as a large proportion. of humanity ^consistently refrains from doing anything fee itself which it ränget done for it, either by fair or foul means, so there are among minute creatures a certain percentage ever ready to avail themselves of the services of others. Among interesting cases of this description U one reported by a Mrs Slosson, who observed at,; Fraaconia some lacewing flies which seemed to have a black spot upon each wing, while others had but one spot. I On capturing some of the lacewings, she noticed the . black, spots were really minute cecidomyia' fhes, and closer observation j showed that it was not nnusnal f or these flies to steal à ride on the larger insects. The, Rev. A. £.' Eaton, when' in Algeria, also noticed small flies of the Borborinae group ' riding on the backs of big Copr...
From Our Point of View. WHAT WE Do. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 31 March 1898
From Our Point of View. WHAT WE Do. There is one good qual- ity among Labor men which is worthy of imi tation by Ministerialists, and that is known and - unread Ijibor rag has a paragraph in its columns that " Unless the Government carry ont this, that or the other at once, we shall feel it our duty to put them out of office", the world at large does not even smile. But should thc reform or movement advocated by. the unimpor- tant rag, be carried out by the Gov- ernment, all the other Labor papers in the colony come out in hysterical print to the following effect "Owing to the persistent advocacy of the Dead Hole Tin Trumpet the Govern- ment has at last caved in, and Social- ism has gained another victory." The Endeavour Beacon, which gives the reader the impression that it suffers from chronic anaemia, has the following in its last issue : " The Cairns Municipal Conncil at its last meeting passed a resolution (I) that the by-law be enforced, and steps taken to re I move the Japanes...

WHAT IS ELECTRICITY? [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 31 March 1898
WHAT IS ELECTRICITY ?, The American Electrican condenses from London Engineering's review of Professor Trowbridge's new book, "What is Electricity?" as follows! The writer says that in spite of thc all- round progress made during the last 30 years, we know no more about the essential nature, of electricity than did Benjamin Franklin 150 years ago. The several explanations offered, based, upon the ether, or ether and matter associated, merely substitute one un- known for another. "After all, what is matter? What is the ether ? Mow is matter associated with the ether ? To such fundamental questions we can return no other answer than the now famous ignoramus. They make, or tend to make, us painfully conscious of the infinitude of our nescience." The writer of the review adds that Lord Kelvin must have been brooding over these provoking unknowns when he wrote to him irî 1892: "Tell me what electricity is, and I'll tell you all the rest." . This inability to detect electricity in its pri...
