Scientists describe over :?00,000

idea of the number of insects eaten '
by birds, we quote from Chapman: j

Why The Japanese
Take Off Their
Shoes At The Door
The custom in Japan of leaving the
shoes at the door before entering
a house seems a peculiar one to uv
Yet it is a most sensible on? in Japant
considering that the shoee commonly
worn there are wooden clog*
and the house floors are covered with
a soft, padded, uncolored straw mat'
tings, to say nothing of soiling them.
The heavy white cloth socks worn
by the Japanese in themselves are
(food house shoes.
In public places such as temples,
visited by large numbers of tourists,
and at the big stores?the floors of
which are matting-covered?courteous
attendants at the entrance are
provided with cloth covers to tie over
shoes like those we wear. And
the attendants, without expecting a
