CHEMICAL LOVE SCENES. CHLOROFORM SIGHS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 15 April 1910
CHEMICAL LOVE SCENES. CHLOROFORM SIGHS. If,'as the cynics tell us, to are losing our capacity Cor emotion, the modern druggist can 'give us back all the out ward signs of love, grief, anxiety, des pair and exaltation, neatly compressed into tablets and capsules, at so much per dozen. This was made abundantly clear at •the Medical Exhibition, which opened at the Horticultural Kail on 1st October. Information . gleaned from the mass of scientific "drug-data" in "The Extra - Pharmacopoeia,"- a . new work exhibited oil the.stall of Messrs'W. Martindale, the publishers, make it clear that a love scene of the following nature is quite possible in the near futuce:— The blase w-ooer, fearing lest he should betray his boredom and lack of emotion in the course of his avowal, provides himself with portable chemical prepara tions which will £Tve him a Romeo-like gamut of emotion. On the doorstep of his ladylove's house' he drinks a concentrated solution of glucose, and all appetite leaves him o...
LORD BUTE'S BOMBSHELL. THE CARDIFF DOCKS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 15 April 1910
LORD BUTE'S BOMBSHEXL. THE CARDIFF DOCKS. ■Tim Lord Mayor of Cardiff announced • last -uljilit (27th September) at a special. meeting of the city council that the ''Marquis.of Bute had decided to sell his - immense interests in the Cardiff Rail way Company and docks. The news was received by the members 'with amazement. Lord Bute's decision is one of the highest importance to Cardiff., Groat commercial concerns will, no doubt, be eager to bid for the colossal share in the undertaking which Lord Bute is soon to relinquish, but his lordship, re sponding to an appeal from those who have the welfare of the town at heart, lias consented that Cardiff shall have the first offer to purchase. Many considerations have weighed with Lord. Bute in coming to this con clusion. He feels that the responsi bility of such a vast and important un dertaking ought to be borne on the shoulders of more than one man. The authorised capital of the Cardiff Hail wa.v Company is about L7,000.000, of which nearl...
TRAIN SICKNESS. RAPIDLY GROWING. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 15 April 1910
' TRAIN SICKNESS. RAPIDLY GROWING. Train-sickness is becoming more pre valent. Whereas ten years ago only one traveller out of 100 ever became train sick, now five times ns many succumb. The cause among women is an increased tendency to eat hastily at stations, reading small type while the train is in motion, and with tired eyes gazing at the passing 'landscape. Too much smok ing is the cause among men. A long-dis tance train scarcely ever leaves London without causing sickness to someone be fore it stops. This fact has induced one company to placo a woman medical attendant on its fastest train, and the plan may be ex tended. The woman travels on the Great Western Express from London to Pen zance. Her duties arc exclusively to take care of the sick. Occupying a com partment in one end of the train, she must be ready throughout the 300-mile journey to administer to any passen ger. She must be quick in emergencies, and as resourceful as a Red Cross nurse. ' - Most of her remedies are ...

SUNDAY LABOR IN FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 15 April 1910
SUNDAY LABOR IN FRANCE. The question of "hebdomadary repose" is (writes the "Westminster") not now being agitated for the first time in Prance. It was brought up in the time of Na>poleon I., when Portalls, Minister of Public. Worship, proposed the 'com pulsory Sunday closing of shops. The Emperor replied from Ostend, in a de spatch .dated February 5th, 1807:—"It is contrary (he wrote) to Divine right to prevent men who have needs on Sun days as well as on other days, from working on Sundays as well as on other days to earn their bread. The Govern ment would only be justified in impos-, ing such a law if it distributed bread gratuitously on Sundays to those who have none. Moreover, the fault of the French people is not a desire to work too hard. The police and the Gevernment are not, therefore, called upon to inter fere.

LONGHEADS AND SHORTHEADS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 15 April 1910
LONGHEADS AND SHORTHEADS. An interesting paper was read the other day before a medical assembly at Stuttgart by Professor 'Walcher, whose object was to demonstrate that the racial characteristics of braehycepha.lic ^nd dolychocephalic (i.e.,. so-caJled long and shorty, heads, are mainly the result of the peculiar treatment babies receive during infancy. Taking as an example the southern' German ' type, in which "short,", or "medium," skulls predomin ate, Professor Walcher gave it as the re sult of his researches that they owe the: distinct formiation o£ their heads to the fact that a baby in southern Germany is generally strapped on to a feather pil low, causing it instinctively to lie on the back of its head, in order to be able to breathe more, freely. When an infant lies on a harder surface, suoh as a. horsehair pillow, as is the. practice of the northerners, the child turns its head habitually on one or tho other side, which produces a "long" head. Professor "Walcher claims to h...
THE VISION OF INSECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 15 April 1910
. THE VISION OP INSECTS. , It' is known that, insccts are ordinar ily unable to fly through a net, .'the meshes of whicH are two or three times the size of their bodies. A bird would dart through such' an aperture without hesitation. Several explanations have been ottered for the conduct o£ insects in this respect. - - •' ;. : , ' ■ An official of the Smithsonian Insti tution—says the "Baltimore American" :—has recently made experiments from which he concludes that the peculiar facetted structure of the eyes-of insects; is, the cause of their difficulty in getting through nets: To an insect, he thinks, a net looks like a continuous partially opaque surface, the separate lines being-1 unnoticed, and accordingly, on ap proaching a- net, • the inscct alights before discovering that it might have i continued its flight and, passed safely through;
PUSHED OFF A MOUNTAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 15 April 1910
PUSHED OFF A MOUNTAIN. A providential escape from what ap peared to be certain death was the thrilling experience of a Swiss lady, when watching the sunrise from the Sentis, a mountain peak some 8000ft. above sea level. The morning was exceptionally fine, and every alpine club and tourist agency in Switzerland seemed to have furnished a contingent to view the matchless beauty of the Aip penzell mountains at early dawn. Some S00 people were squeezed together on the small 'summit plateau, and when new arrivals were impatiently elbowing their way to the front, the lady, who had' selected a favorable position close to the edge of a precipice with an almost sheer drop of 1000ft., lost her balance and fell down the steep declivity, to the horror of the onlookers. Her fall was fortunately broken by a projecting piece of turf-covered rock, and when some members of the Zurich Alpine Club, a£ ter/a somewhat perilous descent, ca*ne to her aid, it was found that she had suffered no injury excep...

A TERRIBLE MISTAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 15 April 1910
A TERRIBLE MISTAKE.' A sensational crime, reminding one :of some gory "penny dreadful," has been committed, at Munich. A girl named Therese Niedermair had amorous rela tions with a man named George Dunz, but the lady proved fickle, and arranged •to meet" surreptitiously another candi date for her favors. The tryst, how ever, was observed by one Max Gun;ll fingey, a bosom friend of Dunz's. who was not slow in informing the jilted lover of what he Had seen. The latter,' furious -with jealousy, rushed off with the informant to the girl's house the same night, and . demanded - admission, threatening 'to break open the door. The panic-stricken girl, seeing: that the door must soon .yield to the infuriated man's pressure, opened, but had the presence of mint! to extinguish, the light first, then slipped • behind " the door and darted through, while the maddened lover, who was armed wi'th a long knife, rushed into the; darkened room., Striking blindly abo\it him, he plunged bis weapon into...

J YORK CONSTABLE. I ?feow HE IS PROTECTED. ''Kn American Visitor" to London writes in the "Express"':— j Tho frequency of-eerious assaults on ( tho police by hooligans which has re cently attracted the attention o£ the mi j ffistrates furnishes th^ text for a con sideration of whether London and, in fact, the whole English polite system, is sot seriously at fault. At present the fact seems to be that the policeman is fair game for any mur derous ruffian who chooses to attack him. Hardly a day passes that cases do not come before the magistrates in which policemen have been disabled, and the punishment is, as a rule, so inadequate ; that the deterrent effect is practically ' nil. j In no other country in the world could such a state of affairs continue.
