Banana Wisdom. MANY USEFUL, HINTS REGARDING AN EVERYDAY COMMODITY. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 15 May 1914
Banana Wisdom. \NY USICFUI, HINTS REGARD ING AN EVERYDAY COM MODITY. I wonder if it is because bananas arc cheap, like the homely herring, tlwt people do not realise nil tho possibilities in them. Bananas have 110 drawback*?. They are nourishing, they are fattening for children, they are digestible. Perhaps they are unpopular in tho kitchen bccausc they are not under* stood. The best way of converting cooks is to tell them what tho banana can do. Here are a few recipes : SHAM STRAWBERRIES. Take half a dozen banana* and mash them to a pulp. Keep' on mashing and adding a little castor sugar until the fruit is like clot tod cream, and quite smooth. with out a lump remaining. Then add n. tnhlespoonfnl of strawberry jam and whisk this all up together. Buy twopenny worth of cream and whip it stiff. Jf you happen to havo a spare whito of an egg left over from. a. cake, it is a good plan to whip the white to a stiff snowV and stir it in with the cream. Mix banana pulp with the Jam and the c...

Smart Children with Stupid Parents. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 22 May 1914
Smart Children with Stupid Parents. - r The contention of many physicians mid reformers that fcoblc-mindcd par onts should be prohibited from marry ing, because they bcHcvo that the off spring of- such unions is bound to bo similarly afflicted, Is not always borne out by facts. Indeed, it fre quently happens that normal chil dren, who are in no way mentally or physically deficient ave born to. feeble-minded parents. And this hits puzzled not a '/civ physicians nml scientists. It would seem, however, according to Dr. Charles Davenport, a eu genic expert, that the explanation is quite simple. Ho points out that the mentally deficient are not all deficient. in the' same way. The term "deficient" is not only applied to thoso who are stupid, owing to lack of brain power, but is often ap plied to criminals of every degree. Thus if tiy deficient man marries a woman who is deficient, it does not follow that their deficiencies are of the same nnture. The man's deficiency niuy consist of crim...

THE GOOSE KING. There Is plenty of money to be made from goose-farming If you hu-vo enough capital to commence tho business and suffleisnt patience to conduct It properly, rrobably tho biggest go'oso-larmer alive-the Goose King, we might call him-is a resident of Illinois, U.S.A., who discovered that breed ing and fattening these birds was more profitable than owning a pri vate bank. lie is a banker by profession. Ten thousand is tho average number of birds at the farm, which lias its own goose hospital and gander prison. liirds that neglect to conduct'themselves in a becom ing 'manner are promptly incarcer ated in prison, a separate cell for each wrong-doer.

"Tho Goose King" makes his greatest profit by fattening the birds; breeding them in such a slow process.

I A Wireless IWght Mirror. TO MAKE TIIE SEAS SAFE. A ronmrkublo invention pregnant with useful possibilities is the wire loss long-distance mirror. Its pur pose, in brief, is to convoy an image in the snnio manner that sounds nrc now communicated. It is a radical improvement on (ho old-time enmera obscurn, n struc luro in which the real imag" oi an object is projected upon n white Inblo or other piano surface. Not only does the new apparatus reflect on n mirror /»] 1 objects located nnd nil happenings occurring within a much greater area than the enmern obscurn, but it operates at night. Just how the machine works has not yet been revealed, but the ma chine is known to consist of a web of wires attached to a tall most, and it is this web of wires which receives the impressions and pro jects them on to the mirror located at the base of tho mast.

The Riddle of Scent. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 22 May 1914
The Riddle of Scent. It has been said that the modern lnnn's chief aim is to he ablo to travel to nowhere in particular at top speed. There is a Rood deal of truth in the sneer. Non-stop runs at top speed are ull the rage whether ono travels by land, by water, or through the air. Nature's methods are, as a-rule, 'more leisurely. She lias shown what she can do in the case of corlain birds which will always re main the despair of tho airman, but so far" as most or her offspring arc concerned she favours endur ance rather than:speed. It is truo that many animals can move like the Yankee's greased lightning, but very few of them can keep it up for long. ' A luire can travel at great speed /or a while, especially uphill, but left to herself she would never dream of doing so, preferring to lob along i|Uite slowly. Why hurry when all time is-yours'? Badly hustled, the hare's ono idea is to out-pace her enemies by a burst of speed, and then hide, a plan which would answer perfectly in most ...
