The Amazon of the Continent is not the only Ant which enslaves the ueutei-s of another species, for in different parts of the world several species of Ants have been observed which seize upon workers belonging to other nests, and bring them to do the work of the home. A ErazUian species {Myrmica paleata) has been observed to act in a similar manner. In the accompanying illustration are shown two remarkable nests, made by insects of the same genus, which have been placed side by side in order to show the different manner in which cells are arranged by insects which are closely allied to each other.. KESTS. POUSTEU ATERfillU, VIOL The smaller, though more conspicuous nest, is formed by an insect which is called Polistes aterrima, a name which is very appropriate to the creature, inasmuch as the generic title sig- nifies a builder, or the founder of a city, and the specific name signifies intense blackness, and is given to the insect on account.
