BUT DARWIN WAS "ON" [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 26 February 1915

BUT DARWIN WAS /ON/' When Charles Darwin was visiting the country house of his friend, the two boys of the family thought they would play a joke on the scientist. So they caught a butterfly, a grasshopper, a beetle and a centipede, and out of these creatures they made a strange composite insect. They took the cen tipede's body, the butterfly's -wings, the grasshopper's leg;s, and the bootless head .and they glued them together carefully. Then, with their new bug in a box, they knocked at Darwin's door. "Wo caught this bug in a field,' they said. "Can. you tell us what kind oi a bug it is, Mr Darwin?" . Darwin looked at the bug, and then looked at the boys. He smiled slight ly. "Did you notice whether It hummed when you caught it, boys?" he asked. "Yos," the yanswered, iiudgigg one another. "Then,' said Darwin, "it is a hum bug."
