In ro.oalunc to t.ho termor Ids tern: erament as «jho.vn l»y tho aforesaid bumps, the profossor snid " Your tastes are tho simple, homely ones of tho farmer. You nro a farmer, are you not ? Ah I I thought to. And I am right as to your tastos, am I not ? You aro sadly deficiont in Judgment, and have little knowledgo of human na ture. Your innocent and trustful disposition condors you an easy dupo to designing- mon, and your own porfcct honesty prevents you from oKhcr suspecting or defraud ing anypne." Tho following weok, it appears, tho phrenologist bought a horso from tho innocent farmer. Although the nag was old and in bad condition, it had l:ecn mado to appear young and skittish. Moreover, though tho farmer had paid but £5 for the ani mal, he contriv.cd without diffi culty to unload him on tho pro fossor for £15. "It's wonderful," said ....

Rats' Tails at Fourpence Each. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 24 July 1914
Rats' Tails at Fourpence Each. It is calculated ,that there is one rat to every aero in England and Wales, and each rodent does dam age to the extent ot one farthing per day, which represents a. total loss of £15,000,000 to the country. The annual bill for the upkeep of a small army of cats and rat-cat chers at the London Docks amounts to hundreds of pounds per year, and though a thousand rats . are killed there every week, the; oOi cials cannot exterminate the posts. The whole of tho civilised world is now engaged in a war of ex termination against tho plague carrying, unnecessary, and destruc tive rat. Australia has spent £60, 000 upon a single structure intend od as a barrier, and Denmark in troduced a successful Anti-Rat Bill. This Bill provided for tho payment of a premium of not less than a half-penny and not more than a penny, according to the districts, for each rat captured, the money being supplied by a State grant.

A Gentleman. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 24 July 1914
. A Gentleman. It is almost a definition of a gentleman to say ho is ono who never inflicts pain. This descrip tion is both rofined and, as far as it goes, accurate. IIo is mainly oc cupied in merely removing tho ob-1 stacles which hinder the freo anH | unembarrassed action of those about' him ; and ho concurs with their movements rather than takes tho ini tiative himself. ~ Ilis benefits may be considered as parallol to what aro called comforts or conveniences in arrangements of a personal na ture, llko an easy chair or a good fire, which do their part in dis pelling cold and Tatigue, though na ture provides both means of rest and animal heat without them. Tho true gentleman in like manner carefully avoids whatever may causo thnso vith whom ho is caU-all clashing of opinion, or collision of feeling, al! restraint, or suspicion, or gloom, or resentment; his great! concern being to make everyone at' their ease and at home. Ho has: eyes on all his company ; he is tonder towards the ba...

SHIN FOR A BACKBONE. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 24 July 1914
SHIN FOR A BACKBONE, Two very unusual operations were performed recently at a New York hospital. In one ease a man )vhoso spino was broken some while back has had a new lease of life offered him by what might bo termed "splicing." A strip of bono three inches long was taken from his shin and placed in a groovo cut in the broken section of his backbone. The other case was that of a small tboy who full from a roof top and fractured his forehead, with tho rosult that part of his brain was exposed. After several weeks of treatment it was decided to substi tute celluloid for the broken bono as the only chance of saving his life. Tho operation has been per- 1 formed, and it is now thought that I there is every likelihood of tho. bov recovering. "Standard." "How much flo yoiuwant for that doff ?" "Twenty-three shillings, guv'nor." "Hut you uskcrl mo it pound yesterday." "Yus," but 'os gorn and caUu n chicken since then 1" Surnames bogan to bo used first among the nobility in .1200.

£40 for a Tattooed Head. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 24 July 1914
£40 for a Tattooed Head. At ono time tattooed heads fetch ed as muc)r as,- £30 to.£10 forgoot) specimens, said Dr. S. H. Harri son, the curator of the Horniman Museum at Forrest Hill, in a lec ture on the paint, powd«r, and per sonal adornments of savages. He was describing the ancient Blaori custom of tattooiug the head, and said that they always cut oft tho head of anyone slain in war, and it was looked upon afterwards as a sacred object. In process of time collectors began to purchase these heads, and this led to many murders being committed in order to secure the head and offer it for sale. It then became a practice to tattoo tho hoads of slaves, so that they might eventually bo killed, and their heads sold ; but this had long sinco been stopped. Tho wearing of necklaecs and ear rings went back many hundreds of years amongst evory class of savage and the present use of powder and paint by them was a continuation of the use of pipeclay and red ochre centuries ago.
