Excerpt from Hardwicke's Science-Gossip, Vol. 20: An Illustrated Medium of Interchange and Gossip for Students and Lovers of Nature The present volume witnesses the Twentieth year of the existence of Science-Gossip - perhaps the fullest and most interesting period in the history of Natural Science. Since this journal came into existence many new methods of research have sprung up, most if not all of which have been duly chronicled in our pages. Never before was the history of discovery so complete as within the last twenty years. Are we assuming too much in stating that, notwithstanding the unpretentious character of our magazine, readers will find it difficult to obtain elsewhere than in the volumes of Science-Gossip, so perfect a scientific chronicle of the period in question? It is with no small pride the Editor feels that the present volume is the best of the series. Apart from the splendid coloured plates which the enterprise of the publishers has enabled him to present to his readers every month, the Editor was never so ably supported by contributors of such well-known scientific and literary position, as during the past year. It is equally gratifying to him to know he has the strong support of a large circle of sympathetic readers, who arc generously ready to condone faults, and to take such an individual interest in the success of this Magazine. It is with much pleasure the Editor announces that the programme for 1885 will be in no way behind that of its predecessor. Asking the kindly help of every reader and contributor to enable him to give Science-Gossip a place in every intellectual home in Great Britain, the Editor cordially wishes all, readers and contributors alike, a hearty Christmas Greeting!

Excerpt from Hardwicke's Science-Gossip, 1889, Vol. 25: An Illustrated Medium of Interchange and Gossip for Students and Lovers of Nature What an enormous advance Science has made within the period comprehended by the lifetime of science-gossip! There is, perhaps, no previous quarter of a century equal to it in 'the whole history of scientific research. Our past volumes record this progress - all the more faithfully because it was recorded almost unconscious of the fact that an act of evolution was going on. Perhaps 'one of the most striking features in the scientific history of the last twenty-five years is its increased democratic character. It belongs to the people, without any reference to rank, wealth, or in uence. For years, in our columns, peers and peasants have discussed natural history subjects on common and equal ground. Science has sprung from the people, and belongs to the people. Apart from its increasing national economic importance, it is one of their chief intellectual delights. For one person who cared enough about the multitudinous objects of nature to enquire into them a quarter of a century ago, there are at least ten now.

Excerpt from Hardwicke's Science-Gossip, Vol. 27: An Illustrated Medium of Interchange and Gossip for Students and Lovers of Nature The Editor would point out that this annual volume is distinguished even above its predecessors by original papers. Those on the British Diptera and Rhizopods alone will hereafter make the Volume for 1891 sought after. In addition, he desires to draw attention to the articles on the new aspects of Darwinism, &c., to show how much science-gossip endeavours to keep pace with the Philosophy as well as with the facts of Modern Natural Science. The Editor is fortunate in being surrounded by a zealous clientele of earnest contributors, to each of whom he owes much. The low price of the Old Monthly does not bring a fortune, but it helps science-gossip to brighten the home Of many a working-man naturalist; and there is no better tribute to 'the eagerness to receive its monthly issue, than the grumbling letters sent when the magazine appears a day or two later than usual. For twenty - seven years science-gossip has held the privilege of being the chief and most largely-circulated popular scientific magazine in Great Britain - which means in all the world! There is no better testimony to the growing love of and interest in Nature, than that such a magazine should continue to be so much required. NO effort in the Future will be spared to keep up the well-earned reputation of the Past. Notwithstanding the fact that so many paths have been well trodden, there still remain fresh fields and pastures new. Natural Science, like Astronomy, may be explored, but cannot be exhausted.

Excerpt from Hardwicke's Science-Gossip, Vol. 16: An Illustrated Medium of Interchange and Gossip for Students and Lovers of Nature The variety of subjects, many of them the result of original research and observation, which have been discussed in our pages during the past twelve months, and nearly all of which are con tributed by amateurs, is a good indication of the mental activity of our time. Our Notes and Queries columns, and those devoted to the special branches of Natural Science are equally crowded with proofs of an active spirit of enquiry and research, in one form or another. Science is rapidly becoming a power in civilised society, although not equal perhaps at present to that exercised by Politics or Theology.

Excerpt from Hardwicke's Science-Gossip: An Illustrated Medium of Interchange and Gossip for Students and Lovers of Nature The nests of the Termites, or White Ants, are very common in India; but although so common, there is not one person in a thousand who has seen the internal economy of one of these wonderful abodes. I had often wished to do so, and although I had resided very many years in the country, during most of which I had studied natural history and collected specimens, it was not until twenty years or more had passed that I had an opportunity. This was at Etawah, N.-W. Provinces, in 18077, and the result was so curious and interesting that I think it worth recording in Science-Gossip, whose pages are devoted to such topics. I had offered a reward for a queen white ant, and at the same time I determined to dig for one myself; not that the natives were not well aware of the locality of her abode, but that they would not take the trouble to dig her out. I had observed several mounds formed by these insects near the gate of the court-house, and one morning, taking with me three men, I dug up the hard-baked soil in their midst. There were five of these conical elevations, the highest being the central. This was about a foot and a half above the level of the plain, whilst the four smaller ones, which were placed at the corners of a square of perhaps five feet, in the midst of which stood the chief one, or citadel, were each perhaps eight inches in height. It was on the 22nd of November, so that there had not been any rain for some months, and the grass was all dried up, and the earth extremely hard. I first cut off the heads of each of the mounds to ascertain the direction of the chief galleries, as well as to sec which was the residence of royalty, and where the nurseries might be placed. Within each eminence were large domed chambers supported on massive pillars composed of the finest sand, all of which had passed through the bodies of the workers ere it had been incorporated into the compact substance of which the sand pillar was constructed. There were also flying bridges, with footpaths on them trodden smooth and polished by the passage of the millions of feet of these blind insects, into whose habitations light never enters. All paths tended towards the centre, although by digging I came on several granaries and sets of nursery-cells. These granaries are very curious structures, being as slightly constructed and friable as the general structure is solid, story upon story of cells supported by frequent walls and pillars, all of which would crumble in the hand. The former are placed in hollow spaces excavated for the purpose, each about the size of a child's head, and contain some kind of food, supposed by many to be inspissated juices of the roots of trees, and resembling in appearance little globules of brown gum. There are perhaps three or four such granaries attached to every nest. The nurseries resemble the granaries in a great measure. In them grows a minute white fungus, much resembling a button mushroom, and about the size of a small pin's-head. This was formerly taken for food by many observers; but I do not think that it is so. It, however, abounds to such an extent that it causes the floor of the cells to assume a grey appearance, the colour of the earth being of a light brown. In these nurseries, which arc in general about the same size as the granaries, may be observed the working ants and nurses carrying about and feeding from their own mouths the larvæ in various stages.
