All Round HEALTH NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 4 April 1905

?BHBK& HEALTH KOTEa Remember that although starch has its uses, there are invalids who cannot euduro the rustle of apron or Bkirts. Then forget to say, ' Oh, this is a gloomy day.' Don't ear, ' It will be many a day before you will wear these boots a-ain.' Never seem so absorbed in book or paper as to give the impression that your patient is only of secondary im portance. Enter the room quietly, but not stealthily — ja though you belonged there; never peering slyly through a half-onea door. Let a few cool, fresh blossoms that are not overpoweringly en-eel touch the feverish face. They seem to bring rest with them. Allude not lo personal appearance, esj ecially to say, ' You look like a ghost,' or ' I know by your looks you are worse.' If glycerine) pure docs not suit tho skin, dilute it with half tho quantity of rose-water. To rub t-e face and hands fre quently with cucumber will keep them both soft and fair. Lemon-juice applied to the skin is whitening, but il is not advisa...

SPARKS AND SPARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 4 April 1905

fiPARKS AND SPARES. The sparks given off by metals when ground, or when struck by a steam-hammer, ore equal to a good display of fireworks, but would afford to few observers any instruction or knowledge. II is different, hjwever, to an expert like M. Engclmeyer, who bus found, after a careful studv of th« phenomena, that these sparks are indi cations of the composition of the metal as well as of its quality. The sparks, it seems, are duo to the burning in ah- of minute -particles of the metal, and the shape of the sparks varies with every metal operated upon. From soft iron, when ground on an emery wheel, a sheaf of continuous lines is formed ; from steel a distinctly pointed star; and from bronco a flower entirely dissimilar from the star of steel or the lines of Iron. From iron and steel combined branching lines are emitted, making a grarlu.il transition from the pure sheaf to lli« pure star, and corresponding to tbe imperceptible transition really exist ing between the iron and s...

FLIGHT OF BEES. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 4 April 1905

FLIGHT OF BEES. It has never been deterrciLc-d how far b_ees Hy, but theoretically tho solution has been attempted by count ing the numberof wing beats per second and from that, guess the distant the bees fly from their . hives. According to Prof. Marcv's ' oraohio method,' tha bees make, 100 wing beats per second. Hie method con sists in fastening a bee in such a Key that its wings are free to move, one ol them touching lightly a rotating cylinder covered with a smooth and lightly-blackened paper. Profe-sor Laudoie, who Los studied the sound apparatus of many animals, thinks, from the pitch of the sounds made by the vibrating wings, that they move to and fro at the rate of 400 vibrations per second— more than double Marcy's results. According to Prof. Maroy/s figures, 100 wing beats per second would bring the bee over's distance af one. English mile per minute. It Prof. Landols is right, the distance would be two miles.
