Page 516 - On the natural history of the Rocky Mountain locust, and on the habits of the young or unfledged insects as they occur in the more fertile country in which they will hatch the present year. No. 2.
Page 300 - Bank. The frugal man who puts aside a pound to-day, and another pound next month, and who in a quiet way is always putting past his stated pound from time to time, when he grows old and frail gets not only the same pounds back again, but a good many pounds besides.
