ORIGIN OF CHIMNEYS. THE EARLIEST MENTION OF THEM WAS IN 1347. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 14 May 1914

ORIGIN OF CHIMNEYS. fc THE EARLIEST MENTION OF THEM WAS IN 1347. In the excavation at Pompeii am? Herculancum no discovery appears to have been made ot anything approach ing the nature of the modern chim ney. The earliest mention of the chim ney seems to he in nn ancient Venc-. tian inscription over the doorway, where it is written that in 1347 cer tain chimneys in that location were demolished by earthquakes. It is by conjecture only that we are able to say that the chimney was known in ancient Italy. Seneca, who lived during the first century of our era, invented a species of tube which he affixed to the length of the wall, and it seems to have run through floors. Through this the heat passed from subterranean ovens called "hypo euusts," of which remains were found .in buried cellars of houses built on the Bay of Naples. But in this there is no evidence of any chimney in the modern sense or even of any kind of stove. Before the invention of the chimney fires wero made in excavatio...

Why Man Likes to Put His Feet Up. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 14 May 1914

Whv Man Likes to Put His Feet Up. # It is an admitted fact that. « man rests much more easily with his foot on another chair, or-in the privacy of his own room-perhaps with his feet on the table. lint it is not always understood why this is a more restful attitude.. Perhaps women do the same thing in the privacy of their own apartments, but as no one is ever supposed to know this, the question must be left open. If they do. however, it is equally sure that they frain a greater sense of rest thereby. The reason is not always realised, yet it is very-simple. The hardest piece of work the body does is the continual pumping of the blood. Not to burden the reader with statistics, .let it merely be said that the heart beats with a normal pulse of seventy-eight beats to ihe minute and that with every bent ihe. ventricles of the heart have contracted, having driven the blood with tremendous force into the ar teries, the auricles sucking back the blood by a tremendous pull through the veins....

Hens that Hatch Fish. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 14 May 1914

Hens that Hatch Fish. * As is generally known, a big quan tity of fish spawn is annually lost. .To avoid this, fish rearers in Chin* carefully collect spawn from the (surface of the water, and when thev have secured n sulticient quantity they take:a number of hens' eggs, the contents of which have been care fully emptied through a small apw ture, and refill the shells with the spawn. The holes are then sealed up, and the eggs put under broody hens. The hens are allowed to incubate .ihc eggs for a certain number of 'days, when the eggs are again bro ken and their contents put into ?water that has l>een previously, ?wanned by the sun. In a very shorty space of time the spawn hat ches, and the young fry are then kept in 'pure fresh water until they attain a sufficient si*e to he put into the ponds containing' older fish. [The Chinese have lonif understood :all the intricacies of incubation, and iwere amongst the first to use incu jbators for the hutching of hens' eggs, long before s...

The Express. THURSDAY, MAY 14, 1916. Ministers and Trusts. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 14 May 1914

THURSDAY, MAY 14, 191(5, Ministers and Trusts. WHILST members of the House of Representatives have been talking long and looaely of many tbingp, I householders hive bean concentrating their attention on one-tho increased oosb of living. Mr Knibbs, the Com monwealth Statist, tells us that tho firBt throe months of 1914 saw yet another rise in the weekly bill which the wage-earner and his wifo must faze, unleaa they are prepared to forego some of the comfortB they have been acoustomed to as regards necessaries. Since' that, the grocers have come to some sort o£ understanding which further swells the week's accounts; the butcher's charges are higher, and the cold comfort- offered to farmers with Ibeir quivers full of healthy, hungry children is that to-diy's prices aro low compared to those the future will bring. As regards meat, Labor asserts that the rise is due to the machinations of a Trust. Mr Groom, Minister of Custom?, speaking to the censure motion, faced the posi tion courageo...

Guess she likes to spend the plunder Gee-she knows the way! She's a Brand one - Lord, what dresses! Handsome, too, proud as a queen With her doings iu the papers, Dinners, dances, all the capers, Likes to lead the show, my guess is! You're the sold machine! It' she knew you as 1 know you, Would she spend it-say? If she knew each trick and quibble. Little fishes hooked that nibble, Business murders-would she show you Such a grandstand play? You're a savage money maker Good to her. though, sure-and me. Kind old pirate! What in thunder Does she think of you, I wonder? What neat stories do you take her So she will not see? -Harriet Monroe in January "Smart Set."
