Why Cocoa is the Vegetable Egg. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 23 January 1914
Why Cocoa is the Vege table Egg1. A Cocoa can be compared to a vegetable egg, because, like the egg, it contains everything' necessary for the building of tlie animal body. When we analyse cocoa we find it a perfect natural food. Analysis tenches us (hat it contains a fair proportion of nitrogenous mattor in the shape of gluten, a very large proportion of fat, a consider able amount of starch, so much mineral" matter, and, finally, a sti mulant of its own called theo bromine. Cocoa is an excellent substitute for tea or coffee, especially to those who are over-stimulated by these beverages. Pure cocoa is easily digested. But be sure tliut you get it pure. Avoid all such prepara tions of cocoa in which other substances have been mixed. It' you find that one brand of cocoa docs not agree with 5'ou, try another ; until you find the one which is best fitted for your constitution. Cocoa was discovered by the Spaniards when they first landed in Mexico, being there used by the 11a tives in ...
A Homesick Baboo. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 23 January 1914
A Homesick Baboo. 1-; The Bengali Baboo is a feature of Indian life. A parrot-like memory furnishes him with a large and var ied vocabulary, but as a rule he has a very hazy notion of the cor rect use of the English idioms which he employs so freely i'a his conversation.' The result is infi nitely humorous, and adds much to the somewhat scanty joys 01 busi ness life in a tropical climate. CJokul Das joined his palms in supplication as ho entered his mas ter's ollice. "Protector of the poor," lie said, translating literally the high-Mown Oriental phrases, "kindly grant the petition of your humble slave for ten days' leave of absence from this abominable city on account of acute homesickness." "Hut, lUiboo," expostulated his puz/led master, "how can you be homesick ? . Your home is in this city, and your parents, wife and children are ail with you." "Yes, your honour," replied 1 ta boo, in despairing tones, " that is just it. '1 hey are ail here, and 1 am sick of them !" Here is a way...

Dog Feeds Hens. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 23 January 1914
Dog Feeds Hens. - t An Indiana farmer named Sitka claims that his dog takes the prize for intelligence, and points to an incident showing this and an un usual friendship between the dog and his prize poultry. Sitka's grain is kept in a small shed lie hind the house, and Sitka found that when ho left the door of this shed open the chickens would enter and feed themselves. This led him (o placff ii spring- on the door so that it would close of its own ac cord when open, and would only need a push to open it. Much to his surpriso Sitka found that his grain disappeared at an alarming rate despite all his precautions, and this led him to investigate. Seated at his window and watch ing the door of the shed, his atten tion was drawn to the dog, which sneaked hp to the door, followed by several hens. Then the mystery was explained when the dog pushed against the door with its nose and held it open while the liens entered, gorged themselves, and retired to roost.

A mist began to rise, and the shep herd hurried on, leaving his little boy at a spot where he said he would return to him. The fog grew denser, aud some tune passed before the shepherd had rounded his flock. When he returned to look for his child, he could not find him. He called long and loud, but there was no answer. Then he himself lost his way, and not till the moon: rose was he able to trace his - way home. 'Die little boy had not re turned, and all the next day his. parents searched in vain. His dog, on receiving the accustomed ban nock in the morning, scampered off at full speed across the moor and was away all day. Next morning the same thing occurred. The fol lowing day the shepherd followed the dog, with the cake in his mouth, and watched him enter a cave. When he came up, there was his child unhurt, seated on th...

ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. By S. W.-Hopkins, Author of Pour Brass Plates," etc., etc PART 11. CHAPTER XVI. Marion Brooke lived nu idle 2i;e. It must not be supposed that her mornings were always at her dispo .sal, even for so worthy a cause as that in which wo have seen her work ing side by side with good Dr. Taf ton. In the first pine.-, Mrs. Brooke was far from well, and upon Mar ion's shoulders devolved most of the. responsibility of the household. Most of the servants had remained when Mr. Brooke purchased the place from the tradesman, who had ;;rown weary of residing in >; neighbourhood where he was loosed upon as an interloper. Ihis was due to the animosity felt towards bin by the duke, who visit ed upon his head nil the wrath he felt towards his son for selling Marchmere to a stranger. And here it may be well to explain the rela tions existing between the Brookes and the haughty neighbour. Marchmere had been part of the ?vast holding cf the duke for many years ; in fact, it was ...

Pen Pioture of the Past. LOSS OF THE ROYAL GEORGE. HOW COWPEll TOOK THE TRA GEDY. Cowper's tine verses on "The Loss of the Royal George" nre tolerably .well known, but everyone is not so familiar with the story of their origin. Towards the close of Cowper's life his mind-as most readers are aware-lump: at times on the brink of insanity, mid nt the time now referred to his affliction was prac tically at its height. The morning of the day on which this incident took place was dreary, cold, and dull. A chilling mist which filled the air was succeeded by a driz zling rain, making all nature cheer less. Deeply miserable, as usual, Cowper was hastily pacing his room backwards and forwards in a state of extreme agitation and distress, the darkness and gloominess with out augmenting the deeper dark ness within him. lie wns humming to himself the nir of Handel's "March in Seipio," his steps keep ing timo to tho music, his thoughts busy brooding over his own utter wretchedness.

Gymb o wen N ews. [FROM OVR OWN CORRESPONDENT] Daring the latter part of last week we experienced rather unseason able weather. A heavy thunderstorm broke over tlie district on Friday night, and similar weather prevailed till Monday. Some heavy showers were registered. A district lady, Airs P Cruse, had a rather unpleasant experience on Friday A current of lightning struck a large tree in the vicinity of the house, and the shock was so great that it shook crockery off the kitchen shelf, whilst llrs Cruse was overbalanced As liar-, vesting operations are almost com pleted, the rain will not be regretted The district crops have yielded well, in most cases over the estimate of the owner, as they did last year At the beginning of the harvest many owners were lamenting the appear? ance of rust in the wheat crops, fearing that the yield would be affected; in fact, reports were cireu» lated that some farmers were strip ping several bushels under their estimates Happily, this has proved to ...

Australian Aborigines. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 30 January 1914
Australian Aborigines. --?: . The Australian Aborigines (says Bishop Frodsham in "The Cornhill Magazine) have considerable dra matic instinct, . and their dances arc extremely interesting and var ied. One favourite dance, proboLi ly connected with a l-asic "princi ple of life, is wearisome l.eyond measure to the white eye, but this is not the case with corroborees il lustrative of life in the bush. One such dance, I have seen, por trayed a turtle hunt-in which the turtle lifting its head above tho water seemed possessed with the spirit, of elusive humour. In an other favourite dance the young men of the tribe mimicked a tribe dingoes quarrelliug over the imagi nary carcase of a kangaroo. This dance, I remember, once ended in peals of laughter, as two of the naked players, fighting like angry dogs over a real bone, rolled to gether into the burning wood-ashes "of I ho camp fire. The last dramatic corroboree I saw was descriptive of threo Chi nese squabbling together over 'a gun. The ...

SCIENCE QUERIES. 1 1 1 ? $? * (I'.v EDG All LUCIEN LAUK1N.) &lt;v>. -I taUo for granted that the earth is ari enormous armature rotating- in a magnetic field. Wc know that h«\it is produced in a .solid armature by eddy currents. Would not the.se lit developed in tho earth and generate heat, steam and cau.se volcanoes ? A.-The earth i.s a huge armature rotating at high .speed in the sun's magnetic field. Masses of metal'and metallic ores in the earth actually cut lines of magnetic force extend ing from the sun, and this cannot be done without generating- heat and electricity. Mathematics proves that the materials in a cut-out sphere one thousand miles in dia meter, as the central region of the earth, are far heavier than .'any rocks in the surface layers. The equations deduced by Newcomb would all be satisfied if this cen tral globe is as dense as gold or platinum. Therefore, beyond any doubt huge masses of metal exist iu the earth. Q.-I cannot see why the law of conservat...
