TO HIDE BALDNESS. HAIRS SEWN IN HUMAN SCALP. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 22 July 1914

TO HIDE BALDNESS. HAIRS SEWN IN HUMAN SCALP. A method of sewing hairs in the human scalp in cases of partial or total baldness has been successfully used in several instances by Dr. Szelcely at the hospital of Saint Ste phane at Budapest. The number of hairs "planted" in the head of a patient, says "The Times," has been as many as 50,000. One hundred hairs are drawn through punctures in the scalp to every square centimetre, and as both ends are left free, the number is thus 20J3, or over 1000 to each square inch. Very fine gold wires are used, one five-hundredth of an inch in diameter, and fine, long hairs from a woman's head are at tached at the middle to these. The gold loop or knot acts as an "an chor," and after sterilisation is intro duced into the subcutaneous tissue, where it is slightly, twisted, and holds the hair permanently in position. It is stated that 500 hairs can thus be introduced into the scalp within three quarters of an hour. Dr.' Szekely has designed a special i...

"BUFFALO" JONES. KNOWS WHAT ANIMALS THINK. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 22 July 1914

"BUFFALO" JONES. I KNOWS WHAT ANIMALS THINK. Colonel "Buffalo" Jones, the fam-j ous American huntsman who in his time has captured lions, rhinoceroses, hippopotami, and panthers alive and unhurt -with a lasso, has gone at the head of an expedition to the French Congo to attempt to bring home to Europe, for the first time, a full-sized gorilla. "VV. Beach Thomas in Lon don "Daily Mail" writes as follows about this remarkable man: Buffalo Jones is certainly the most astonishing conqueror of animals that has ever lived. Daniel and Samson, as Mr. Roosevelt said, were nothing to him. 1 usked him the secret of some of these conquests, his scientific as well as his physical conquests, which make tame anything that Ballantyne or Mayne Reid concocted; and at the age of seventy he is setting out with a list of new adventures that would more than fill an ordinary lifetime. . The conquests are as various as notable. He has roped almost every wild animal there is—rhinoceroses, lions, cheetahs, z...

Sir Ronald Munro-Ferguson, the new Governor-General, is of a con siderate turn of mind, and is evident ly desirous that the public shall en joy with him his art treasures and his domain.

Therefore, on i Saturday afternoons in future those who are of an artistic turn of mind will be able to stroll up to the vice regal mansion and look at yie cele brated Raeburn's and other art trea sures which are gathered there.

HOW THE SHIP CAME HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 22 July 1914

HOW THE SHIP CAME HOME. By ADAM M'CAY, in the Sydney "Sun." The storm it howled with a demon's breath, ' And its hate was the hate of Hell; But the Wakatipu came back from death, And she brought back life as well. Southward into the raving blast, sea ward into the niglit Tlie Wakatipu went rolling past in the devil's own despite; For all the demons that twist and turn wherever the tempests blow Had sworn to batter her, stem to stern and drag her to drown below; She dug her nose in the sweeping seas, she put her head to the gale, For 'tis just as luck and the Lord shall please if a ship will win or fail; And the devils emote her in scornful sport, but she battled against them all; For the mascot bringing her back to port was a baby born with a caul. Beaten and banged, she staggered on; I reeled with a drunkard's gait; Her rudder and half of her boats were gone; she heaved her plunging weight . " Like the wallowing corpse of a liar pooned whale;- was tipped and turned and tossed Till ...

GENERAL NEWS. In regard to the month's operations for June, the Principal of Dookie Agri cultural College (Mr H.
