USEFUL BYE-PRODUCTS. What Is Gained With tho Szving Habit. By John 31. Oskison. Credited to T. T. Munger is the fo !oing:- ' "The habit of saving is itseol an ccl ducation. It fosters revery virtue. It teaches self-denial. It cultirtes a senso of order. It trains to fore thought, and so broadens the mind. It reveals the meaning of the word busi ness, rwhich is something Tvery dififer sit .from its routine." Self-olenial, a sense of order and f6re thought are the very vitals of business success, They are enough to win a mnclest success for anybody. T?ley aro not hidden from the sght of anylslu. hbut "lwithin'tho" re5ce of all.' And Mr. 3funger belirev~s that by a'quiring the habit of s:ifig you will get tlheso essentials as a by-product.

THE INDUSTRIOUS MOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 14 January 1914
THE INDUSTRIOUS IMOUSE. Many rears ago a studious Scotsman named bravid Hutton proved _that stores of the profitable energy were go ing to waste among those tiny but active folk, the ordinary domestic mice. In the snmmer of 1812 I had occa-. sion (he wrote) to be in Perth. While inspecting the toys and trinkets that were manufactured by the French pris oners in the depot there, my attention was attracted by .a little toy house with a wheel in the ahle that was running rapidly round, impelled hby the activ ity of a common mouse, For one shil hin I purchased the house, the mouse andi the wheel. SBut how to apply half-ounce power, which is the welght of a mouse, to a useful purpose was the difficulty. At length the manufacture of soewing thread seemed the most practicable. Tho investigator foundn that an ordin ary mouse would' run on the avenrage ten and a-half milos a day; he had one mouse that ran the remar~kable distance of eighteen miles in that time.

THE ART OF THE CONJUROR. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 14 January 1914
THE ART OF THE CONJUROR. S?cience has enabled modern conj?ur ors to do tricks that would fill the old school of magicians with wonler. Wherever applicable to the stage, the modern magician has adopted the no vel features of inventions, and. com bining then with his sleightof-hand, has brought forth an entirely new style of mago. A trick performed long ago consist ed of pourng from a single bottle scv eral, different liquids into glaslse set upon a table in full view of the andi ence. In the first. glass nas water, in the next wine, in the next milk. The secret lay in the construction, of the bottle which was composed of vari ons chambers. In ench of these was placed a certnin liquid, the flow being controlled by valves in the bottle's neck immediately under the finger of the mna gcian. Tho great weakness of the tri~ck lay in this-that the magician did not permit the bottle to go out of his hand to be examined by the audience; hut the re cent discoveries of chemists enable the maiici...

Much to the surprise of a scepti cna public, the "divinieg rod con gress" just held at ITalle (Germanmy). has attracted an extraordinary amount of attention from serious German scientists. The congress was called together to determine what scientific basis, if any, there is for the ancient theory that underground springs or de-l posits of ore can hIe located by tire use of the "diviining rod" The mcembers included a large nunt I her of agriculturists, geologists, and geogranphers from all parts of the world, including not only Europe, but Africa and America. Professional '"Rutenganger." or cx perts in the use of the "rod." were also on hand to give the benefit of their experience. The conclusions of congress will come as a surprise to those who long ago dismissed the " divining rod" theory as a relic of ancient superstition.

- MORTICIANS. Long ago, when man departed from this earth to face his Maker, then his lovd ones, broken-heartcd, called the village undertaker; now when man's in that condition, dead as death can ever make him, people summon the morti cian to embalm and undertake him: When my beard begins to harbor wrens and robms, great and lesser, I consult the nearest barber, not tonsorial pro fcssor. When I have some news that orter printed he. to stir men's wonder, I riong up a good reporter-noet a jour nalist, by thunder!

Medical experts, call ed respectively for the defence and the prosecution, had flatly disagreed on the symptoms of the after effects of cer tain:narcotics. Bank clerks and ofi cials had gone into the figure side of the case. A famous maker of safes and strong rooms had given expert evi dence. Police and detectives had gone over the oldground, but more minutely than, before the magistrates. Every effort had been made to trace Roy •Stannard; the description furnished by the prisoner had been more widely cir culated, and the bank had offered a re ward; but the man seemed to have van ished into thin air. The defence had failed to produce a single witness to prove such a. man's presence in Hasted on the night of the crime, as apart from the prisoner's uncorroborated statement. The roomy assize co...
