Blind Swim Straight. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 9 January 1914
Blind Swim Straight. The man who is uniortunnte enough to lose his sight, or lo ho horn blind, is severely handicupped on dry land, but he tan, if lie is n swimmer, find his way easily in tho water. Blind people generally have a keen sense of hearing, and they can steer themselves in the water by sound us well as an ordinary man by sight. If they are swimming towards a cer tain poins, a whistle from time to time will enable" them to reach it with unerring accurar.v. This fact has recently been proved by some interesting experiments. A race which took plnro between blind men and ordinal y swimmers in «i lake resulted in a \jctory lor the for mer. Normal swimmers lose a good deal of time in raising their head for the purpose of keeping an r>e on the winning-post. This also preveuts them from concentrating all their attention on speed. Before laying oilcloth, put a layer of sawdust 011 tlie floor, and it will give a soft tread to the feet, ,as well as preserving tho oilcloth.

Signals from Mars. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 9 January 1914
Signals from Mars. Is Mars trying to signal to the earth ? The question is raised by some un usually interesting observations of the planet which have recently been made public by M. le Coultrc, the distinguished astronomer of Geneva. During observations, which lasted seventeen dajs, the astronomer re marked a series of luminous appari tions of a bluish-white colour, liko the light of powerful electric arc lamps. The illuminations, which usually lasted seven seconds, were observed on several different nights. This is not the first occasion on which they have been seen. Several astronomers have, at different per iods within the Inst six or seven years, drawn attention to them, and have tried to explain them as ' being due to atmospheric or vol canic origin. Most of the previous theories have, however, been exploded, and the con clusions come to by M. le Coultrc, aro strongly in favour of the phe nomena being due to regular at tempts made during recent years by the .Martians to got in...

There is, not a hundred miles from Sloane Square, in a quiet little street, in a modest little house, a small registry oNice. It never nd \erti.se.s in any paper at all.
