SCIENCE SIFTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 17 August 1912

SCIENCE SIFTINGS. DISAPPEARANCE (IF A LAKE. A small lake near Northwieh. in Cheshire, England, recently began to sink out of sight, and by nightfall had dropped about twenty feet. It was calculated that approximately 20,000,000 gallons of water had disappeared, and there was much local speculation, and some anxiety as to what the phenomenon portended. The geologists, however, soon set all fear at rest by the following explanation: The area is honeycombed with salt deposits. There are ancient salt workings beneath the lake. Its sudden subsidence was due to the water's breaking through the bottom and finding its way into some subterranean salt-bearing strata. Here it will become impregnated with salt, and eventually be pumped to the surface again with its load of salt for commercial use. THE WANDERINCt EELS. A circular letter has been received from Hamburg by all the fisheries of France asking them to look out for a number of eels which have left the German port. Men of science in Ger...

HEALTH HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 17 August 1912

HEALTH HINTS. ! Mothers should not treat either whooping cough or measles as a trivial complaint, writes Dr Andrew Wilson. Each is apt to prove dangerous, especially when, through some neglect, complications ensue. That whooping cough is one of the "fevers'"that is, a germ-produced disease —is a statement which admits of no dispute. There is no special rise of temperature experienced in whooping cough, or, in other words, "fever" is not a symptom we expect to find represented. None the less is the disease infectious, probably through the germs being sprayed out of the mouth by the cough. This fact should guide us in avoiding infection, and cause us to disinfect all handkerchiefs used by patients in a solution of izal and water. As usual, there is a period which elapses between infection and the appearance of active symptoms. This interval may range from three or four day* to 14 days. During this time the child will suffer from sign...

PHOTOGRAPHY. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 17 August 1912

PHOTOGRAPHY. RELATION OF EXPOSURE AND DETVELOPMENT. I Practically all experienced workers agree in assigning the place of first importance to correct exposure. Some go so far as to say no real or useful degree of subsequent modification 'by development is possible, but with -ibis extreme position I for one cannot agree, -writes F. C. Lambert. F.R.PjS., in the "Daily Telegraph." At the same time, it should be said thad correct exposure and normal development will give a better result than faulty exposure and the utmost that control can do. But, granted .that fairly correct exposure has been given, there still remains the very important question of how fair to carry development. Now it is a curious fact that, while many amateurs will take pains in compound-in developers according to this or that formula — first one and then another mixture—very few take the trouble to make a few careful experiments with a single formula, mere- Iv varying the degree of contras...

OVER THE TEA-CUPS. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 17 August 1912

OVER THE TEA-CUPS. j THE NECESSARY WIFE. " A wife is a necessity, and not a luxury," declared Judge Goodnow in the Chicago Domestic Relations Court, upon ordering the wife of Dr. Thomas Lantry to.retnrn to her husband. Mrs. Lantry charged her husband with non-support, and he asserted she had left his home •because she was jealous of his women patients. " A good woman is a necessity to a good man," explained the judge to the dissentient couple, " and as the years increase the necessity is increased. The wifeless men .between thirty and fifty years are. in more trouble and cause more trouble to their friends than married men. Woman is an anchor, and the home she makes is a refuge. Tlie hotel, [restaurant, club, and publichouse, which [are the headquarters for the majority of unmarried men, are not elevating." WHAT WOMEN* DO. | A philosopher has been at work, and has evolved the following: — A woman walking o...

PERSONAL ANECDOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 17 August 1912

PERSONAL ANECDOTES. THE BURLAR LAUGHED. C'ancn Horsley is an authority on burglaries, and tells a good story of a burglar who used to carry pieces of doctored liver for silencing dogs. One night he entered a house, saw a dog's eyes staring in the hall, and at once produced the liver. The animal did not move, and on close inspection the burglar discovered that the dog was stuffed. "Here's a joke," he thought, and laughed so uproariously that the members of the household awoke, and he was caught. SIR GEO. REID'S PRIZE. Sir George Reid, High Commissioner for Australia, distributing the annual prizes to the boys of the Exmouth training ship, told the story of how he once took live wickets for ten runs, and the sequel.

A poverty-stricken peasant named Timotieff, in the Yenisei district of Siberia, has just discovered a large quantity of gold under his hut. -Stockings embroidered with life-size figures of mice are now worn in New York, thus realising the old rhyme about "running up the clock."

CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 17 August 1912

CRICKET. Our recent coach Pearson always maintained that he could never strike form in New Zealand, and this appears to be borne out by his performances in England since. Of the three late coaches, Pearson is the only one to appear in the batting averages for which tho qualification was 27. Pearson was fourteenth oa the list with an average of 40-45 and a highest score of 154 not out. Both Thompson and Relf were in the bowling list, Thompson securing 63 wickets at a cost of 19.63 apiece and Relf 37 for 22.29. Some brilliant all-round work by Albert Relf, our old coach for Sussex, against Leicestershire, at .Brighton, resulted in Sussex gaining the victory by an innings and 151 runs. Relf on the opening day had taken eight wickets for 41 runs, and next day he increased an overnight score of 2,> to 103, being still not out when the Jam Sahib declared the home team's innings closed. But even then Leicestershire had not done, with hun, as he followed up his fine batting by se...

FOOTBALL. Mr W. T. Jennings writes from New Plymouth as follows: — Dear Actaeon,On reading the very interesting history of Auckland Rugby football, which appeared in your issue of Thursday, Ist August, many pleasant memories came -bock to mc as one of the "way-back" players forty years ago. The okl .Albert Barracks was the scene of many a hard-fought athletic battle, both in football and in foot racing. How many Aucklanders remember that clinking go of three hundred yards between Ted CHare and Manning, son of Judge Manning ("Old Pakcha"), when "Little Ted" wore has big half-caste opponent down and won a hard race by a yard? However, I am digressing, as I want to recall that football match at the Thames on Parawai ground in 1872, when I had two molars removed without paying a dentist, the result of a collision with the genial owner of Duuborve (Mr George Dunnett), who was captain of the Auckland team.

GOLF. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 17 August 1912

GOLF. .Some very valuable prizes have been offered .recently for amateur competitions in the Old Country, but the "Sportsman states on very high authority that golfers who may take part in such competitions sland in danger of forfeiting their amateur status. The ride, under which action might be taken is the clause in the official dßfinition of an amateur which reads: "No amateur may, without, forfeiting his status, receive, directly or indirectly, from tlie promoter of any match or tournament, any consideration for playing in such match or tournament." An incident at the (fifth hole in .f. H. Taylors second round, in the Open Championship, has given rise to much discussion in England. Taylor was on the green, six feet from the hole, when his ball was struck by the approach shot of hie partner, Hallam. Taylor's ball was knocked over a yard away, leaving the player with a putt down a slope instead r»f an up-hill stroke. He failed to hole it, and...

ATHLETICS, [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 17 August 1912

ATHLETICS, The big fifteen miles professional race was pulled off at the Island Stadium, when Ted Wood (holder of the world's 16 miles record), Alf. Shrabib (of wellknown fame), Billy Queal (the Yankee champion), and Tom Longboat (the Bronze Mercury, and, incidentally, the greatest runner of the ages) toed their marks in their efforts to smash existing records and fight their battle for supre- Imacy. The track waa re-surveyed and measured right down to the inch, and watches were overhauled and guaranteed, the path was in grand shape, and with ideal weather conditions everything pointed to the record being shaken up. Right from the crack of the pistol the race was a scorcher. The first mile was clipped off in 4.40, Shrubb leading by a small margin at live miles in 25.10, setting a new Canadian record. From that point Wood took -the lead, and whirled round the track at a merry clip, with the great. Longboat right on his heels, clinging like a leech. .Shrubb went lame and retired. Wood...

BOXING. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 17 August 1912

BOXING. The boxing match between Ai Palzer and Bombardier Wells, which had been looked forward to with much excitement, proved a very .brief affair. In fact, the contest had lasted less than three rounds when, with Wells lying inert as the ■result of a hard body blow, his seconds tossed the sponge into the ring. Wells' clever side-stepping frequently made Palzer miss. He started well, landing right and -left on Panzer's mouth, and then hooked his right on the jaw, sending down Palzer for Osec. Palzer rose and held on, tout the Englishman shook him off and landed heavy rights and lefts on the head. Palzer was tired when the bell sounded, and Wells had easily had the best of the round, hi the second Walls used hefts and rights to the. face and head, while i'alzeir scored heavily on the body. Wells replied with his right to the body and head, but Pailzer crossed his right to the head and then stepped in and drove a right upper-cut to the chin and a loft book to the jaw, knocking Wells ...
