AN ARMY OF LAND CRABS. [Newspaper Article] — The Charleville Courier — 11 July 1896

AN ARMY OF LAND CRABS. A singular point in tbe history of the West Indian land crab is the fact that every year when the wet season has set in they make a great excursion to tho sea. Straight as a wild bee to its comb, they are said to march to the coast, allowing- nothing to hinder them or torn them aside. If a wall or a. rock comes in their way they climb over it instead of going around. If a house is the obstacle they will seek to get through the doors or windows, but if this is not possible they will climb over it. Those that fall back from considerable heights and get damaged in the tumble serve as food for their whole and hearty companions who quickly, rend and devour them. The males begin their march several days earlier than the femaice, who form the main body of this oxodus, their battalions extending for a mile or a mile and a half ia length, with a breadth of forty or fifty paces. So closely do they march together that the noiss of tlioir shelly integuments, as they jostl...

[?] [?] EVOLUTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Charleville Courier — 11 July 1896

famiL EVOLUTION". ? For some time past evolution has been one of the cant words of modern philosophy. Everybody believes in it, everybody speaks about it, every body professes to understand it, and a good many people try to make it explain everything. Yet when one asks how far evolution has affected the hnman race, one is pnzzled to find a satisfactory answer. Man has lived on this earth for six thousand years-probably much longer. Evo lution, therefore, has had time to show its effects. According to the theory, the race ought to be more perfect now than it was in the olden days. Is it? So far as material knowledge is concerned, the answer is "Yes." The acquired skill of generations is at the service of the j new-born babe. Eveiy labourer in every field-science, philosophy, craftmanship-is the heir of all the ages that have preceded him. He begins to build on the foundations laid by those who have gone before him. Bnt that is not so much the work of evolution as of memory. Is the ra...

Far different from these simple folk, however, wis Miss Sara Marie, the only daughter. She often wundeted what fate meant by sending her among people so obviously below her in nil things. If it was intended for a joke, she con sidered it a very poor one: It may not have been a pleasant fate for the inferiors who had tie honour to be her nearest relatives, either, out old Joe and Becky Wickett were-manifestly proud of daughter Sara Marie, whom they, in their dense ignorance, had christent d Sarah Maria.
