With the freak fash ions and (lie cccentric pleasures of a certain section of society Her Majes ty has no sympathy. On more than one occasion, indeed, the Queen has expressed her strong disapproval of the extremes to which people carry their pleasures nowadays, and she has set her face very strongly against the periodical crazes in which the elite, ill search of new and novel pas times, indulge. It has ibeen known for some time that Her Majesty considered that the latest dances, particularly the tango, are quite unsuitable for tho ballroom, and neither at Buckingham Palace nor at houses which Her Majesty visits will they figure 011 the programmes. Not that the Queen objects to dan cing; indeed, she Is very fond of the waltz, schottlsche, polka and other graceful dances. In her attitude to wards the tango she is supported 'by King George, who, like the Kaiser, considers that this particula...

A LITTLE NATURE TALK. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 8 May 1914

A LITTLE NATURE TALK. Not only naturalists, but everyono who lias watched ants has wondered how they And their way to and from their nests. A French naturalist. M. Cornctz, who watched ants In Algeria, tells the results of his observations. The aut, he says, in its outward Jour ney, proceeds throughout in the di rection initially chosen; on its return the insect places its body at tho Same angle, and walks in tho opposite di rection. The body ot the ant would, there tore, act as a kind ot compass needle. If an ant is caught at the nest and transported to a point some yards distant the insect is quite incapable of finding its way back. It runs around on the ground until it accidentally comes across the entrance to the bur row. The caBO is quite different if an ant is allowed to find its way to a distance unmolested. On leaving tho nest it places itself In a certain direction, and holds the same, no matter what obstacles it may meet en route, and no matter what side tracks it may occa...
