"POETIC JUSTICE." Making the Punishment Fit the Crime. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 25 April 1914
"POETIC JUSTICE." Making the Punishment Fit the Crime. Some time ago a well-known writer severely criticised our present syBtem for sending people to prison for crimes as different in character as thieving and uttering a criminal libel. He as serted that the punishment should be made more to fit the crime, and tome judges, especially in America, aro be ginning to follow out his ideas. .For Instance, the other day a man named Brant was charged In Ohio with steal ing eggs. The judge ordered him to go to prison for five days, and to bo fed during the whole of that time on a diet of eggs only. At the expiration of his sentence Brant declared that he. had become so tired of eggs that he would never eat another one again, so that the judge's novel sentence has efTected a radical cure in this particu lar case. In California, if a man should fall to support his wife and family, he is sent to prison, where ho is made to work hard and pay a dally sum to his "better-half" out of the money that...

The other three occupants of the car riage were rather curious to know who he was, and at last one of them began to question him. The dialogue went like this: "Ye'll be a brither o' the corp?" "Na, I'm na brither o' the corp." "Weel, ye'll bo his cousin?" "Na, I'm no' a cousin." "At ony rate, ye'll be a frien' o' the corp?" - "Na, I'm no' that either.

PIANO AS ANODYNE. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 25 April 1914
PIANO AS ANODYNE. The "New York Herald" quotes a curious case of music being used as an anodyne. The incident occurred at Poughkeepsic, and the subject was a boy, aged fourteen years, named Ste phen Klanatsky. An artery in. Klanatsky's wrist was cut with a rope while at play. The first repair of the artery was not suc cessful, aiul accordingly Dr. John N. Bassin decided to re-open the wound and do the work over again. The boy's heart was too weak for ether, and Dr. Bassin called a little girl in from next door, and asked her to play on the piano. She said It was a "Highland Fling." She. wns asked to play it as best she could, and the 'boy was directed to concentrate his mind on the music. He did so, and the surgeon perform ed the operation without difficulty. Later, the boy said he felt little pain. Dr. Bassin said he had used music as an anaesthetic on a man less than a year ago, and that it had proved satis factory.
FLEAS AND FLIES HAVE THEIR PARASITES. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 25 April 1914
FLEAS AND FLIES HAVE THEIR PARASITES. The latest discovery announced In tlie Paris Academy of Sciences Is that ot tlie parasite of the flea, which. It Is claimed, Is the chief agent in the spread of tho plague and other dis eases transmitted by this insect. Pulex irritans, as the flea is called in scientific writing, is the victim of tho ioishmanioses, which livo in the flea's digestive tubing, and it is this parasite of our parasite which really transmits the plague and other infec tions, and not the much-abused flea nimseif, who is only indirectly re sponsible, being compelled to carry this parasite once It finds lodgment in his anatomy. The flea looks small enough to our eye, and ho is so lively that no one ever thought that any other paraslto could catch him, but it seems that not only do the leislimanioses catch him, but they also catch the plague, or yel low fever, and are the most important carriers ot the germs. This discovery has much to suggest to our investigators, for th...

A SHREWD MANDARIN, A Governor of a Chinese province was taken very 111, and refused to ad mit any visitors into his house. This being told to a mandarin of his ac quaintance, the latter was very much concerned, and after many importun ities, obtained an interview with him. On hlB entrance, he was surprised to find no signs of sickness in hia friend, and asked what-was the matter with him. The Governor at length told him that he hud lost the Emperor's seal out of the cabinet where it used to bo kept, and that as the lock remained uninjured he was sensible that the seal was stolen. Of course, he could transact 110 business, and must soon be deprived of his government, and probably also of his life. The mandarin inquired if he had any uiemy in the city. The other an iinj-.vcred "Yes," and that that enemy was an odicer of rank whom he had offended, and who was disposed to do him an injury.
