A TEXAS GATEWAY
Wonderful Ingenuity of the Tiny Ants in
the Lone Star State
The author of Tenants of an Old
Farm tells of one of the remarkable
habits of the cuttingants in Texas
as observed by him I relates to the
opening ana shutting of the gates
communicate with the interior
which cmmunicte wih te interor
of the mound nests which he found
were opened and closed before and
after every exit the ants make These
gates are simply little heaps of dry
leaves twigs and other refuse wl ch
t are seen scattered here and there over
the mound a one approaches it in
daytime When I first saw them I was com
pletely deceived and thought them
nothing more than accidental accumu
lations I found out however that
these pies were raised above the sur
Sice opening of the galleries that pen
etrated the mound and filled the
mouths to the depth sometimes of an
inch and a half
The leaves and chips were i termin
gled with pellets of soil ac I occa
feionally below them the galleries were
quite sealed with pellets The galler
ies frequently slant inward from the
gate and at as great an angle a
fortyfive degrees Sometimes they de
fect a short distance from the top
These conformations allow more read
ily the process of closing as they give
a purchase to the material used gve
The doors are opened about dusk
First appear tha minims the very
small forms creeping out of minute
holes which they have doubtless made
by working inside and carrying grains
i of sand away from the heap Pres
ently larger forms follow carrying
away kits of refuse which they drop
a couple of inches more or l S from
the Sate
This is a slow process and appar
ently nothing is accomplished for a
long time But evidently the whole
mass of plugging is thus gradually
loosened Then comes the final burst
with soldiers majors and minors in
< J the load who rush out bearing before
them the rubbish which flies here and
there and Irua few moments is cleared
awfty from the gallery ana spread
around the margin of the gte
These margn doubtless gathered
together for this purpose and are
among the treasured properties of the
ants being k pt near by for such ser
I vice I easily Identified many places
I a being > used several days in succes
sion
Q
C
u
The doors remain open to give ext
and entrance to the swarms of lea
gatherers until morning when they
are gradually closed the process con
tinning in some cases until half past
ten In shutting up the house the
minors appear to begin by dragging
the scattered reuse toward the hole
One by one they are taken in and
the ingenuity shown in this Is very
great The workers proceed by ad
justing the longest stalks and leaves
that can stretch across and wedge into
tile mouth of the gallery and then
laying the shorter ones atop of these
The last touches are carefully and
delicately made by the minims who
in tmal squads fill in the remaining
interstices with minute grains of sand
and finally the last laborer steals in
behind some bit of leaf and the gate
is closed
THE WORD ROORBACK
urioutf History of Its Introduction Into
Our Political Vocabulary
The word roorback which bobs up
toward the end of most political cam
paigns in connection with the nailing
of opposition lies has a curious origin
Nathan Guilford once 0 well known
citizen of Cincinnati was an active
Whig politician and editor of an ener
getic Whig paper On April 1 of a
certain year he published a circum
stantial account of experiments by a
German chemist named Rooiback
Roorback had been examining the
of different
chemical constituents of eggs
ferent birds supposing it might Q pos
sible at last to compound a hatchable
egg According to the story after
putting many of his manufactured eggs
to the animal heat of different patient
mothers he at last succeeded in hatch
ing one egg and produced a living
bird The story then goes on to de
scribe very minutely the strange crea
ture anatomically physiologically and
ever other way imitating the scien
tific style used in similar cases The
story read very well and was copied
into many other papers and after go
ing the rounds of the press in all
parts of the United States i was at
last after three or four months dis
covered to have been first published
on the 1st of April The Enquirer of
that city immediately fixed upon Fath
er Guilfard the name of Roorback
which was thereafter held to mean a
political liar although the story had
nothing to do with politics Being
well stuck to the name became at last
pretty well fixed and Mr Guilford was
I for many years well known in the pol
itical field a Old Roorback

A JERRYMANDER
Lawson offered the following as an
ordinance
Section 1The territory embraced
within the corporate limits of Salt Lake
city shall be and the same is hereby
divided into five municipal wards
bounded and described as herein set
forth Feb 29 1860 Ja 27 1874

said city lying north of First South
street and east of the following line
towit Beginning at the center of the

City creek in North Temple street
thence up the middle channel of said
creek to the north I boundary of the
ward city limits shall constitute the Fifth I
I Sec 7All ordinances and parts of
ordinances in conflict herewith are
hereby repealed
This document created somewhat of
a stir in the council
Moran moved that it be referred to
the committee on elections a it was
merely a political jerymander
I Fplland opposed it because I Is a
political dodge and anyway this council
should not in its closing moments en
I act an important measure so mater
ially affecting the citys interests I
am surprised at Mr Lawson after the
professions he has made and the blame
he cast on the previous council be
cause they pursued a course similar
to what he Is doing now in legislating
on matters which should have been
left to their successors Mr Lawson is
not acting on his own responsibility
however he is put forward by others
in thjs matter
Moran I should like to ask Mr Law
son if particular desire or
i any partcular request
had been made by his constituents for
the passing of a measure of this sort
Lawson Yes
Wantland He should have done i I
before the election He was defeated
because he didnt do it before Nov 7
Folland Now he is trying to lock
the stable door after the horse Is stol
en
enThe motion to refer to the commit
tee on elections was lost and a motion
to lay on the table till next meeting
of the council prevailed
The Rapid Transit franchise was taken
ken up but nothing was done A motion
to adjourn prevailed and the council
l I adjourned till Tuesday evening
