MLARVELS OF ANT LIFE.
Indefatigable as Workers andi Skill
ed In Feat. of Engineer
We have a way of saying that a
man wvho wvorks hard ''works like a
Trojait,'' says F. J. Harkins in the
New York Tribuine. Virgil wrote in
hiis ''Arteid'' that the Trojans re
minded him of swarms of ants as they
worked. Th .am..nt of lab.. tha

and that dirt taken out being" molded
into bricks and put along the edge to
form a wall or embankment. If 4
man did an equal amount of 'work in
proportion to his size he would be
expelled from the union for work
As engineers the ants have ac
complished feats that make the great
works of man, such as bridging the
Lucin eut-off and corkscrewing down
the North Carolina mountains from
the Swannanoa tunnel look like
child's play. They invented tubular
bridges long before an intelligent
Canadian government threw the Vie
toria bridge across the St. Lawrenee,
and the ant bridge was formed of a
living tube of little bodies closely
knit together. The suspension bridges

built with such care by natives, and
with the use of inuci rope and twine,
Iwere anticipated hundreds of years
before by ants, who nung $hemselves
in a line, the one holding to the hind
legs of the one above him, until a
rope many feet long was formed.
