GOLDEN INSECTS. It is interesting to note, especially nowa- days, that there are insects in the world which are said to be gold-producing! The most popular of the species of beetles which contain gold and silver is the golden rose- chafer. It is a very handsome, yellow beetle, with a metallic lustre, and it-s size is about as big as the end of a man's thumb. In Central America are said to be found the most remarkable beetles. At first sight one would think the beetle an actual piece of gold, until it moves. The head and wing- cases are brilliantly polished with a lustre like pure gold, and it is very strange, too, that silver beetles exist in the same country. About twenty-five years ago the finest col- lection of gold and silver beetles was owned by the Hon. Walter Rothschild. They then had a market value ranging from C5 to £1[2 each.
