Political Unrest [TO THE EDITOR] [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 19 June 1914

Political Unrest [TO THE EDITOR] Sra,-There seems to be a great deal of dissatisfaction amongst some electors of the Commonwealth, that nothing is being none by our Federal .Government. Now, I think, we ought to be quit9 satisfied, for Parlia . ment is what we made it to be. We have allowed the Ministry-the Socialists-who are 97 in a thousand to|rule the Senate, and in the House of Representatives the Liberals have only a majority of one. Under these circumstances it must be seen by those who use common sense that things can't be too good. The strong Liberal party is unorganised, with a great number on the " rail," Their policy is to establish Socinlism, that is to " burst up " all Liberal acts and guarantees of protecting private property. The Liberal policy is to protect-priv&te property, to encourage competition and enterprise, to favor equal rights of obtaining work by union or non-union men, and to abolish Socialism in Australia Electors 1 will you have the de structive...

Strangled by an Airship. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 19 June 1914

Strangled by an Airship. One of the strangest of the many fatalities which accompanied the conquest of tho air in Germany oc curred on March 5, 1912, and re sulted^ in the tragic death of the foreman of the Farseval "advertise ment" airship. The airship, which had made itself familiar to Berlin inhabitants dur ing the past year through its night ly flights for the display of illumi nated advertisements, had just fin ished a cruise, and had landed with accustomed ease before the shed on the .Tohannisthal Flying Grounds, near Berliu. A landing squad, commanded by Haiiooninaster .Nobers, was about to guide the nose of tho airship into tho shed when a sudden gust of wind caught the machine squarely amidships, flinging her around and upward so violent-1 ly that the men who had been hold ing the vessel down with ropes were lifted off the ground. The men had to let go the ropes, in order not to be dragged away ; but the balloonmaster held fast. In a moment he was 600ft. aloft, with tho wir...

Tuning-Fork Tests. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 19 June 1914

Tuning-Fork Tests. ? The tuning-fork is the latest mar vel of medicine. Dr. James Can tilo, a doctor who learned many strange clinical secrets during his adventures in China, und who is to-day one of our greatest experi mentalists in the field of tropical medicine, has discovered that the tuning-fork can prove of great help to physicians. By vibrating a tun ing-fork and moving it about against the body, the density of the organs situated beneath can be gauged almost to a hair's breadth. The fork used gives out the note of 0 sharp; it has a specially-de signed striker attachment, so that it need not bo removed from its position for the purpose of rovi brating. Pr. Cantile in certain cases com pared- the results of his tuning fork method with those obtained by means of X-rays, and found that the former were absolutely accurate. Ho believes that the method will be very useful when dealing with bro ken ribs nnd other bones, and he is now trying to tabulate the different sounds made by v...

To Tell the Age of an Egg. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 19 June 1914

Tha method, explained below, of easily ascertaining whether aa egg i9 fresh or otherwise, comes from the Agricultural Society of Saxony. All tho apparatus required is a ves sel filled with water. Placed in the water, the egg, if fresh, will remain resting at tho bottom of the vessel in a horizon tal position. If, however, the egg is not quite fresh, it will rest with the big end raised higher than the small end, and the higher the big end is raised the older is tho egg. An egg three weeks old rests diago nally at the bottom o! the water. A three months old egg stands actually poised on its small and. An egg that is mora than three months old will lloat. The reason why the egg acts thus, and itself answers the question. "How old are you ?" is simple. As an egg gets older it-utilike some persons-becomes raore buoyant. The water contained in the white t of the egg evaporates, and this causes the empty spare at the thick end of every eg'_f to become enlarged. The larger that empty space...

A Remarkable Duel. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 19 June 1914

A Remarkable Duel. There is always something weirdly fascinating in the accounts of des- j perate struggles to the death be- i tween duellists, when often chance, | and not skill, settled the encounter, i One such caae wn.s that in which ' Villatneuve, a noted duellist of France, insulted the sister of a young' Englishman named Talbot, who thereupon struck him. As a consequence a duel waa fought on March 5, 1805. The conditions that there should be t wo pistols-one loaded, Uie other not. They were to be put into a handkerchief and drawn out by | chance by the parties, who wore afterwards to take their stand at. a distance of only one pace from each other. The first choice fell to the lot of the Frenchman, who endea- j voured to choose the heaviest ; the j other was given to Tnlbot. They took their respective grounds, and so close that the muzzle of each man's pistol touched his ad- j versary, When both combatants j were ready the seconds advanced j and took a last farewell.

THE MOSQUITO EVIL. TURNING THE INSECTS TO PROFIT. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 19 June 1914

THE MOSQUITO EVIL. TURNING THE INSECTS PROFIT." Employing herds of bats to de stroy mosquitoes is the newest pro cedure in the campaign against ma laria. It has been put into effoot in parts of Texas by .Dr. Charles A. Z. Campbell, who recently com municated an interesting report upon it to the International i'nsti tute of Agriculture in Rome. Dr. Campbell observed that the bat's favourite food is mosquitoes, and that he needs a large number of them to keep liim in good condition. He also inhabits the caves in which the insects take shelter in the day time, and he is never bitten by them. By repeating this observation sev eral days running, and making careful count of the undigested re mains of mosquitoes, Dr. Campbell calculated that each bat ate on an average 500 mosquitoes a day. Now, thought he, an army of a few thou sand bats would be a great assist ance in the war against mosquitoes. He considered how squadrons of bats might bo gathered together into one badly infested spot an...

Fair-Haired Flirts. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 19 June 1914

Fair-Haired Flirts. "Ninety of every hundred respond ents in divorce cases are blondes," said a celebrated American lawyer, Mr. Herman L. Roth, recently. "Blondes are vain. Blondes are fic kle. Blondes love no one well but themselves. Blondes invite flirtation and challenge insult. Blondes bear the trade-mark of the coquette. "They say, in effect, ' Catch me ! I am easily caught.' A blonde at tracts instant attention because she bears the trade-mark of the flirt. Her golden hair is a challenge. She is the trouble-maker of the world." Mr. George Robinson, another di vorce specialist, adds his quota to the indictment of the bright-haircrd woman. "In the first analysis of a man's emotions," he writes, "even though "the man be a fool, he wants a woman who is true, and the bru nette is nothing if not faithful. But it takes a man to .win a bru nette. He must put up a fight for her, for she has a mind and will of her oyfn, and a brain superior to that of the blonde. A judge of the Ifnited ...
