Excerpt from Our Story: A History of the Co-Operative Movement for Young People

Some of you, when in the country and sitting by the side of a stream or dabbling in it, have seen little red crawling things running about the stones. Someone lifted one of the stones, and how quickly the little red nurses picked up their white babies and ran down into the ground with them. A nest of ants? Yes, that's all; but how eager each one was to do her little bit of work; no selfish skulking there.

But what you don't know, perhaps, is that these little ants have cousins in far-off lands that have actually learned to grow their corn and to store it in barns. And some even have got to keeping cows - although their cows are not at all like ours. I think they have become so clever by caring more for the whole nest than for their own little pleasures. And you must have noticed that greedy little rascal of a terrier hiding his bones and stealing the cat's milk, and perhaps you have heard Pussy growling because your new kitten came near the saucer. These selfish ones do not cause us to wonder at their cleverness as the ants do - do they?

The bees, too, and even our enemies the wasps, are patterns of industry. Every bee is working for the whole hive. One bee does not keep her honey to herself.
