If bc air pres- sure could be increased not a drop would enter. The principle is made use of in submarino boats. These contain an air chamber in which the air pressure is made a trifle greater than the water pressure outside. Muon the door ls opened lu the boat no water enterst and the crew nre able to pick tip sponges, oysters, or other spoils at the sea bottom.

SWEETHEARTS' SILVERY LAUGH [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 17 June 1911
SWEETHEARTS' SILVERY LAUGH A specialist on tim throat and voice has discovered that every man un- consciously hot rays his character when he laughs. So does every woman. Therefore, to study your sweetheart's silvery latish is to probe her secret mind. This learned specialist announces that each person laughs in one of the vowel sounds. The man who laughs in "A." who emits a hearty "Ha-ha!" is frank, loyal, and loves noise ami movement. Those, who laugh in "E" are phlegmatic, some of them even melan- cholic. Their forced "lie-he!" conies from no sense of amusement. The timid, the irresolute, the naive, and the pliable laugh in "I." So do children, says this student of laughs; j nutt most people will agree that chil- dren nnd foolish young women giggle ia "I." The Inugh In "O" indicates on the one aide generosity and good com- panionship, on tlie oilier boldness or brutality. Never a villain in a melo- drama hut who mucked lils victim with a "'IfO'ho!" Those who laugh in ''LT* are mis...

AT THE END OF THE RAINBOW. Familiarity. By ,V.,M. "Well, cap., what can I do for you?" asked the new clerk with one of those danee-and-sing smiles which exasper- ate se It-respecting men, .'You can t do anything for me," said the village patriarch, wearily, "unless you try to engrave upon the tablets ot your memory the fact that I am not a cap, nur a nat, nor yet a sun-bonnet. lt 1 have any iniluenco with the pro- prietor ot tins place lie will snort!} take you Into the cellar and chicle you with a broom-handle.

WRETCHED WRITERS. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 17 June 1911
WRETCHED WRITERS. The fact that the late Lord Wol verhanipton was very keen on pro- moting good handwriting has often been remarked npon; but lt may not be known that he used to recite ono of the best arguments in favor of his Ideal. When the Reform Dill was be- ing discussed In the House of Lords In ISlïT, the Clerk of the House one day announced that an amendment had been handed In, but the writing was so illegible that ho was quite unable to say what it was about or who was the author. The latter, it then transpired, was T.ord Lyttelton -anil his proposal was to disfranchise all persons who could not write! This ls somewhat similar to a story of the Dulte ot Wellington, whoso hatred of bad writing was hardly In- ferior to his own calligraphy. He once wrote In a perfect fury censur- ing im officer who had submitted an Illegible report-and after the lapse of a week a reply was sent saying that all the officers In the garrison had endeavored to peruse the Indict- ment, but could not...
