Giant Egg. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 23 March 1923
Giant Eggr. What the poultry expert (Mr. J» Beard) described as being the biggest hen's egg that he had ever seen was taken to the De- partment of Agriculture this week, says Saturday's "Daily Mail". It was produced by a black Minorca hen, the property of Miss Paxton, of Kelvin Grove. The egg weighed 69 oz., and measured 9lin. by 8|in. The hen was fifteen months old, and had previously laid an egg weighing 4oz. It did not lay again after producing this mam- moth egg, and died nine days later. The egg when opened at the Agric tural Department in the presence of Mr. J. Beard and the owner of the hird, was found to contain an ordinary full-sized egg, perfectly shelled. The space between the outside shell of the big egg and the shell of the inner egg was filled wiith albu- men, but no yolk, while the ordinary sized egg contained all yolk, but no albumen.

Bowey, of South Australia, who was an honorary commissioner ©f the South Australian Government to enquire into the Prohibition Laws of the United . States (writes a correspondent), has sub- mitted his report which covers the history and development of Prohibition in the United States. He stresses the fact that the enactment of a constitutional amendment and an enforcement code was the orderly culmination of a movement that was started many years ago. His report states ^ that the late wet centers such as New York, San Francisco, Philadelphia and Chicago are still as wet as they dare be, but even in these cities there has been a remarkable reduction of crime, drunkedness and pov- erty. One of the greatest benefits of Prohibi- tion," he continues, "has been its effect upon ^ the health of the people.

No, Mr. Gavin, I did not stop to think but took a trip to the other side and during this trip had my ej*es ;ppen and could see ' that in most cases, the powor station was as near to centre of area supplied by elec trictly, so that the circuit would not be the : length of the area supplied by them.

Death By a Pin Prick. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 23 March 1923
Death By a Pin Prick. Dr. Henri M. Leon, lecturing at the Lon- don College of Physiology (says the London "Dally Telegraph"), said women required less sleep than men, and slept more lightly. A woman had been known to sleep through a heavy cannonade, and then waken at the first faint cry of a child. Whereas out of every 100 males, 42 spoke in their sleep, only 35 per cent of females did so. Of the 42 males, however, only 5 per cent would answer a question put them in sleep, while 10 per cent of women sleep-talkers would give a connected answer to a question put to them. Many theories had been pro- pounded as to the modus operand! of sleep, but no one had yet solved the question be- yond doubt. His own theory was that the secret might lie in the spinal column. There was a joint in the brain which, if it were but. pricked with a pin, a man or woman would die. It was feasible that when this last point of the brain rested, that was the moment of actual sleep.
