Why You Hide Your Head in Bed. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 9 April 1914

Why You Hide Your Head in Bed. (lly Wm. TjEE HOWARD, M.D.) Children and often adults will, upon getting into bed, duck tbolr heads under tho coverings and re main quiet for some time. This is not u form of play nor a sign of four. H is instinctive in man—a trait left us from tho time our ancestors lived In their treo beds. The ourang-outang of Bor neo and the gorilla of Africa to« day do tho same thing when they curl up to sleep. They have a pile upon which they place their hoads, regardless of tho other parts of their bodies. Sometimes they reach up and pull down the thiclt-leavcd branchos. It is not done for warmth, but probably with the ostrlch-llko idea that the head once covered so they cannot sco they believe their enemies are also kept from seeing tho sleeping forms. tflrds, also, sleep with their heads hiddou en tirely out of sight under their foa thcrs. Whatever is the roason, the point is that w'e At 111 retain in our early mental life this ancestral trait. Hut this is by ...

THE MISTAKE MER[?]HANT. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 9 April 1914

THE MI8TAKK MKIfllANT. Many curious trades and professions f»nd mention in the London Direc tory, but therein is no mention rf the Mistake Merchant. There has, however, been found such a memlrr of this queer trade. He is a Sw'ss with a speaking knowledge of most Kuropean languages, living an'I deid, and a vast fund of literary nnd fun eral information accumulated in his world wanderings. At present he is searching a'l the new reference book** for errors, most ly in connection with any foreign data. The mistakes he neatly tabu lates on a foolscap sheet and sends it to the editor of the pnblica*ion, leaving it entirely to him as to whe ther he is compensated for his work. Editorial generosity at any rate may be gauged by the fact that it provides the merchant, with his gene ral translation work, with a fa'.rly satisfactory living throughout the year. "I firBt began this job," he Bnid, "by pointing out to the publishers of ji popular reference book a great many inaccuracies—in this cas...

CHATTER X. Everything seemed to go topsy turvy «s Felix heard that namn from the red. smiling lips of the pretty girl beside him. "Hebe Iluritan !" Those feu* syllables, simple and sueet-sounding— how they crashed through the dainty fabric of the dream he had been cherishing ! — how they chilled his heart and weighed upon his spirit ! Karitan ! Was it not. the name he was sworn to hate? Had hp not pledged himself, only a little while before, to cover it with ig nominy ? His impulsive, young heart knew in that one bitter moment what hope lessness- and disillusion meant, and Hebe, glancing at him. was startled by the sudden expression of sadness and despair that looked at her from his eyes. J bit she thrust the feeling froin her, and entered Jielmonieo's door wrfy. "Come, don't stand there like a goose !" she said, making a pretty little face.

A GROWING AUSTRALIAN INDUSTRY. Although Australians arc proverb nll.v a meat-eating nation, statistics go to fIiow that they hold their own in the matter of cercals also. The total amount of rice consumed in tho Commonwealth per month fluctuates from 3,200 to 1,">00 tons—tins being equal to half a pound per head per month, or 61b. per head per annum for the entire population.
