THE HUMAN FRAME A WON- DERFUL MACHINE. j Tlioro is nothing in tho world so wonderful as thc human body, not as perfectly furnished for the work it has to perform. Tho human skin is ono of tho most wonder/uLfabrics in tho world. Flex- ible, as sflk.'.rcsislcnt as steel, tinted like the petal, of a flower, tough as leather, and almost translucent, ." is tho most superb non-conductor of electricity known. Its vitality is un- conquerable, its posver of repair al- most unlimited. With a vascular mesh capable of containing half tlie: blood in tho body, il can adjust it- self to almost any extreme of tem- perature. With nearly three mil- lion Hushing sweat glands it is "ab- solutely self-cleaning." Practically nothing can got through the skin; and oven most of the medicines which aro rubbed in and supposed to bo absorbed aro volatilised by the heat of the body and inhaled by the lungs, or else act on tho imagina, tion by their colour and odor.

Random Readings. A BIG HOTEL. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 3 June 1911

1 Random Readings, j A BIA HOTEL. Other people- besides Mark Twain have termed Switzerland cine big hotel. In a recent book on Switzer- land it is stated that in the Grisons, in which even the larder towns rarely have a population of more than fifteen thousand, there are not less than three hundred and fifty eight hotels! while the canton ol' Herne:boasts of fiver four hundred hotels. The total for the tuenty tnvo cantons is given as about two thousand, with accommodation for one hundred and thirty-live thous- and tourists; but this does not in- clude the "irregular beds" which supplement these in the height of the season, on thc billiard table or in the bathroom. One group ol hotels in a single centre entertains over seventeen thousand guests, while one hotel has about seven hundred men and women on the staff.

AFFECTIONS OF THE MIDDLE EAR IN CHILDHOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 3 June 1911

AFFECTIONS OF THE MIDDLE EAR IN CHILDHOOD. A doctor says that diseases of thc middle car are exceedingly common in childhood, and especially in tho first few months of life. The ex- citing causes of these diseases are numerous, and most of them are well known ; but, in addition to those which arc described in the trellises !; on oar diseases, tho authur lavs stress on tho following: 1. Tho eil. trance of waler into the external ear during the daily bath. 2. The dif- ficulty in keeping the nose clean in children ; thc secretions are apt to remain in the nose, to deconipnsn and to set up catarrhal and putrid inflammatory conditions of tho nasal mucous membrane, which spread to the middle ear. 3. Catarrhal pneu- monia is vory frequently attended by middle ear disease, as is well known to bo tho caso with eroupous pneumonia. As regards symptoms, tho boring of tho hoad on thc pillow is dwelt on as ono of special import- ance under tho first hoading.

DRAWING ON THE IMAGINATION. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 3 June 1911

DRAWING ON THE IMAGINA- TION. Things are not always as they appear, ('¡enera! G. Mosley Sorrel, in his "Recollections nf a Confede- rate Staff Officer," says something to this effect about sketches by war correspondents. This Kn'glish artist dill not arrive at Chattanooga until after thc bat- tle. Then he came to me. "Colonel," he said, "I'm in an awful mess. I must send my paper a drawing of this great battle. Can't you help mci" There was a little field in which dining the lighting a scene had struck me as picturesque. The little field was bordered with thick woods on one side, through which half a dozen Federal guns were peering, and a line of curs was ad- vancing in beautiful order to cap- ture them. I describe 1 the scene to tho artist, and sent him to see the spot. He returned on fire with the idea, and shut himself up for several days. When he emerged, he had some fine drawings, one of which was a large, beautifully-finished pic- ture of my little scene. Hut all resemblance b...

SCIENCE IN PLAY. I THE PLATH ON THE POINT OF THE NEEDLE. (Prom Magical Experiments, by Arthur Good ) Everybody has seen the jugglers j in the circus spinning plates, ami J even dishes, on a pointed stich. 1-or | the most part, thc plates they use i are made of wood or metal, and I their equilibrium is due to centri- fugal fosee, which will fail just as soon as thc rotation is too weak to overcome the force of gravity. But herc is a way to balance a china plate on the point of a needle, and even to cause it steadily to spin upon this delicate support. j Cut a couple of corks down the middle, through the long axes, and in the extremity of the four halves thus obtained insert as many forks, in- clined to thc smnoth sides of the corlis you have just cut at a little less than a right angle. Place these lour corlis, ns in thc illustration, \ round thc rim of thc platter, at equal ! distances from one another, and see j that the teeth of thc forks arc in j contact with the ran, to prevent ...

A TALKING CLOCK [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 3 June 1911

j A TALKI KG CLOCK { j The newest timepiece which is j shortly to be placed on thc market . actually calls out the hours half-hours and quarters, day and night, unless shut off will tell you the time, to the minute any hour of the night if you press a little button at your bed- side. The works of this remarkable clock actuate a stout belt which runs over a roll connected with a siuud ing box. Upon this belt or rather h'm the hours which have been re- corded by a phonograph are im- pressed by galvanisation on a copper plate. The mechanism which moves the hands is connected with the speaking device and this with a fun- nel which reinforces the s urne! and projects it outward through a finely grated opening attached to the nar- row side of the clock. At night a touch ou a lever reduces the clock to silence. But if one wakes and wishes to kn nv the h mr without striking a light an easily-found but l ton is pressed and the clock immed- iately states the time.

Circus Tickets for Convicts. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 3 June 1911

Circus Tickets for Convicts. In Vermont, U.S.A., the experi- ment has been successfully tried of al- lowing prisoners to go outside thc gaol alone and work without guards, the officials trusting to their "parole." The Sheriff of Washington County, writing ott the matter, says that thc policy of trusting the man has won their confidence, and that the efforts to make imprisonment a little less hard arc appreciated, ile adds that a circus visited the district recently, and tickets were purchased for eleven of thc prisoners, who were allowed to go to thc performance without an escort. Some of them had long terms to serve, and thc crowd and darkness furnish- ed them with an excellent opportun- ity to escape, but fifteen minutes after the show was over every man was back in the prison.

A Shepherd Bird. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 3 June 1911

A Shepherd Bird. Tho Yakamik of South America is, so far as is known, the only "shep- herd bird" anywhere. We have all known, ot cour>e, of dogs that, un- aided, may lu- trusted to shepherd a Hock of sheep, but a shepherd bird, which will drive its charges to pas- ture, protect them from prowling ani- mals, and gather them carefully toge- ther at nightfall to bring them safely home again, is, indeed, a unique crea- ture. The native owners of sheep am poultry in Venezuela and Hriti>h Guiana are the possessors of this shep- herd bird, and to the care of this spe- cies of crane -for to that family thc yakamik belongs are entrusted sheep, ducks, and other poultry. The South American >ees them depart for their feeding grounds, secure in the know- ledge' that the crane will bring them all back safely. Any unlucky animal detected by the yakamik while prowling about to steal gets very much thc worst of it. The bird savagely attacks the marauder with wing and beak, forcing it to ret...

A Matrimonial "Black List." Tho habit of making inquiries at private detective oihees ab lo the means and mode of life of any young man who is under consideration as a suitable husband by . the relatives of a girl whom he wishes to marry leads to some curious complications in Aus- tria and in Hungary. Young tuen deep in debt are inscribed on the so called "black list" at thu'inquiry of- fice. Hood parties arc, on the other hand, put down on the "white list.'* In Vienna five young Hungarian aristocrats, who were involved in debt to such an extent that the only pos- sibility of retrieving their fortunes lay in making rich marriages, formed a syndicate for the purpose of finding wives. Each was to be provided with a rich bride, preferably an American heiress, as his turn came.
