Your Feet Weigh More when You are Asleep. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 22 May 1914

Your Feet Weigh More when You are Asleep/ Von often iionr a person coinplnin of his head feeling heavy oftcr a long sleep. As a mettor of fact, his1 liea<l is considerably lighter, and his legs ami feet just that _ much heavier, when he gets up than when ho went to heil. Kxperimi'uts have shown Mint if a man goes to sleep on a bed sus pended exactly at the middle point of his weight his head begins to tip slowly up and his feet go down. This is due to tho fnct that when we sleep tho blood In the brain goes oft to the other parts of the body. The moment the brain wakes to life again it draws tho Mood I Kick". Another of tho curious facts brought to light by scientists who are fond of trying; to solve tho mystery of sleep is "that when one is fast asleep some yiart of his brain or several parts of it may at tho sanio time bo awake. A man- may walk, talk, sing, or solve mathe matical problems, and yet at the same time be safely in the land of nod. It seems hnrd or impossible...

GIGANTIC FISH. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 22 May 1914

GIGANTIC FISH. H The your 1913 will long bo re membered among salmon anglers as that in which the biggest stilinon caught in a Scottish river for 28 years was landed. Tho fish, which was caught In tho Tweed towards tho end of tho year, scaled 5511j. fou* hours after being landed, and is the heaviest taken from that river since 1886, when ono of 57jtb. was caught by Mr. Tryor from the Kiiko of Uo.vburghe's water.' If the rccontly-landcd fish had been weighed immediately - after capture, it is estimated that the fish would have attained close upon 571b., for the longer such a fish remains out of the water the lighter it becomes. At all events, the Scotch- M-poun der was the largest rod-killed sal mon of the Tweed since 1880, al though it should be pointed out that a salmon weighing 5Slb. was also tnken in the. Alton l»iver, Norway. Anglers tell many thrilling stories of the struggles they havo to land a '101b. or 501b. salmon, but it must bo lame sport compared with tunu-lishiiig in A...

Bridgewater, Inglewood and Wedderburn districts have been con sidered together, as this appeared to be the fairest way of dealing with the conditions which they present, Ingle wood,with a statutory number of eight hotels, has an excess of eight, whilst Wedderburn, with a statutory number of eight, has an excess of only one. In the Inglewood district, nine of its hotels are in the town itself-eight in one street, with one near the railway station. Two are at Rheola, where all the circumstances go to show that one is sufficient. . At Wehla the hotel stands practically alone, and we are of opinion that with one at Burke's Flat, one at Rheola...

Then the Judge Laughed. HUMOURS OF THE LAW COURTS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 29 May 1914

Then the Judge Laughed. HUMOURS OF TUB LAW COURTS. Wonderful indeed is tho oratory of counsel ftt times, but one would have somo riifllculty, perhaps, in finding- a moro amusing example of highfalutin legal language than tho following, whicli Is quoted from ."Law and Laughter" " ' Slander, gentlemen,' said the learned counsel, in a libel action, * like a boa-constrictor of gigantic si/o and immeasurable proportions, wraps tho coil of its unwieldy body about its unfortunato victim, and, heedless of tho shrieks of agony that como from tho utmost depth9 of its victim's soul, loud and reverbe rating as the night thunder that rolls in the heavens, it finally breaks its unlucky neck upon the iron wheel of public opinion ; forcing him to desperation, then to madness, and finally crushing him in tho hideous jaws of mortal death.' " No less amusing was the address of tho American .Tudgo Itodgers to a prisoner who had boon convicted in his court in Louisiana. " Pri soner, stand up I" ho said....

Incombustible Linoleum. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 29 May 1914

Incombustible Linoleum. : -? The manufacture of incombustible linoleum, or, to speak more riccu-' rately, of linoleum that burns with difficulty, has been a goal long aimed at by linoleum factories. The at tempts previously made have been based on the plan of adding incom bustible matter, such as asbestos or ammonium salts, to the .mass during the process of fabrication. Far more promising is a new scheme, described in "Technische Monafshefte," in which magnesium carbonate is added to the mass. All the carbonates have the property! of giving off carbon dioxide when heated at high temperatures. This, as is well known, is a ve»y heavy gas, which does not rise, but creeps nlong the floor. For this reason in ense of a fire it would tend to cut ofi' the supply of air from jLhe lino leum. Magnesium carbonate is cho sen because it breaks up at lower temperatures than any other car bonate. The principal involved is, of course, one commonly used in the manufacture of chemical fire extin guis...

A Tango in the Heavens. STARS WHICH WALTZ INTO SPACE. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 29 May 1914

A Tango in the Heavens. STARS WHICH WALTZ INTO SPACE. To the great regret (says the London "Daily News") of a cheer ing crowd of holiday juvenile*, Professor Turner delivered the last of-his "Christinas lecturcs" at the Royal Institution. At the end of his chat-full of humour and very skilfully wrapped up instruction-ho bade his boy and girl friends adieu in a nice little speech and wished them all a ITappy .New Year. The professor and his voun/.j friends had just returned somewhat breath less and a Wed, from an exciting trip amid the whirling atoms of the Milky Way, a ride on the shaggy back of Ursa Major, and a most enchanting roundabout in the cir cus of the Zodiac. On the way the 'professor told his fellow travellers how to measure the puss-age of light from, say, Sirius to the human eye, and how to do lots of other things that happen between our own rolling star and brother twinklers in the firmament. ITc showed how light toolc time to travel, just as sound did. You could tell ...

THE DAIRY ONE OF THE EFFECTS OF THE COW-TESTING ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 29 May 1914

THE DAIRY ONE OF THE EFFECTS OF THE COW-TESTING ASSOCIATION. It takes time to see a thing on ali its sides and especially to test its 1 results. It is zo with these cow-teat* > ing associations. A Wisconsin sub scriber writing us recently said that one of the most important effccts oi cow-testing was that it tests out th< cow owner as well as the cow. "That is the reason," he said, "why yot see so many farmers unwilling to en page in it. They are afraid of them selves as well as their cows." That's a pretty sharp criticism, but we ar« . confident it is a true one in manj cases. There is such a lot. of farm ers keeping cows who have no pridt ! in their business, who are willing tc , do business with a lot of inferior, money-losing cows, provided the} ; thought their neighbours did not j know it, that it is bard, to react , them by any appeal to sound busi j ness principles. | Any other class of men would hav< a horror in keeping, for instance, s stack of good...

CHAPTER XLT. A.T THE MIDNIGHT HOUR. j Almost instantly the door swung , gently open, but the Russian, in stead of striking, receded a little in amazement.

This she parted at the top, revealing the lovely face of Lucille Montejo. "Dick !" she whispered, eagerly. "Lucille, you here !" he replied. "Merciful Heaven, wbat does It all mean ?" "I have come to save-you, Dick, if that be possible. Follow me-ah, you are not alone 1" She shrank timidly from the Rus sian. "This is Captain Volborth, my fel low-prisoner," Dick explained. "He is a friend-he is on my side. Save us both, Lucille !" "Come ; every moment is precious, Dick," the Spanish girl answered. She led the two bewildered men across the corridor, and thence to the open, moonlit space before the prison. To the left of the outer door, huddled against the wall as though asleep, was the sentry.

CHAPTER XL. THE HEAD IN THE WALL. To bo banned at sunrise next morn ing I Over anil over Dick repeated tho words to himself. They throbbed unceasingly through his brain when he sat down.on tho bench, with his back to the wall, and tried to rea lizo what it all meant. At tho time of his capture ho had anticipated the worst, but somehow it was different now, with tho reality staring him in the face. Ho hail heard the sentenco and he shrank from death with hor ror and rebellion. He was not a coward, but it seem ed to him bitterly hard to die just when the future had turned bright. He had not valued life very much in the past, but it was a thing to bo prized with Lucille to sharo it. And to lose her ! To be hurried out of the world leaving behind him tho woman ha loved so passionately - it was a black and torturing thought. He did.not utterly despair, it is true ; but at present, while the im pression left by Gore's visit was so keen, he was in no mood to consider his situation from oth...
