HORSESHOES MADE OF ASBESTOS. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Morning Post — 3 December 1907

. HORSESHOES MADE OF ? ; - ; ASBESTOS. ( Visitors , to the volcano of Kilauea, on the "Pacific Island of Hawaii; gen- erally ride on horseback, and in crossing what is known as the "pit,' the horses suffer much from thc great heat. The earth is so hot that the hoofs of thc horses are not infre- quently scorched. As some protection became '.vcrjj necessary, a clever blacksmith in Honolulu has recently devised a very successful method by which asbestos may bc used. The idea is to provide the hoofs of the horses with. an asbestos covering much after the fashion of the outer shield of irón-studded leather or can- vas over the motoi>tyres. These hoof shields may'he put on and., reuiovpd at; pleasure. '

"The Sign of the Cross." [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Morning Post — 3 December 1907

" The Sign of the Cross." Most people have heard of the superstition that it is unlucky to cross knives at table, but probably few know either its origin or its antiquity. The story goes that when St. Columba preached Christianity ip Scotland, about the year 5C0, the story of the Cross sank deep into the hearts of the Scotch, and in memory of thc Redemption krjives and' farm implements of all descriptions were dossed when not in use. For hundreds of years the practice was continued, and the children were taught this simple form of j adoration just ns they learnt to make the sign of the Cross. But when the Beforma [ tion set in it became indiscreet, if not dan- ¡ gerous, to show any sign of adherence to .the unreformed religion. Consequently when anyone crossed his knives he was warned that by so doing he might render himself liable to some punishment. The feeling of uneasiness remained long after the cause had been forgotten, and gave rise, to the well-known superstition.

THE "POST." TUESDAY, DECEMBER 3, 1907. A Contrast in Politics. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Morning Post — 3 December 1907

THE "'POST." - TUESDAY, DECEMBER 3, 1907. ; A Contrast in Politics. v As - in every ether calling, tîicrè is in the political arena a marked con- trast between members; redounding to tho credit of some and'to the dis- credit oí others. . In our system oí party government we find men chang- ing their opinions almost as fre- quently as their coats, and with as much facility. Most" candidates for Parliament in their election speeches make promises to suit tho exigencies oí party, but when returned and as- sured of a comfortable and well-paid , « :bMo* those promises aro mostly i°r gotton or only remembered in a half- hearted and surreptitious sort of manner. The average panderer to a party leader, the man who> wears out soveral suits of clothes crawling af- ter the party in power is never au acceptable person, while on the other hand the loyal adherent of a political party, on principle, and who at the same time preserves his independence, is worthy of the admiration of all right-th...

THÉ EDITOR'S SCRAP BOOK. ' r Interesting Gleanings from Various Sources. Daring a fierce storm, the keeper of a lighthouse near Vancouver displayed " dis-; tress" signals.

How do you Walk? [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Morning Post — 3 December 1907

How do you Walk ? I Quick steps are indicative of energy and agitation. I Tip-toe walking symbolises surprise, euri- ' osity, discretion, or mystery. Turned-in toes aro often found with pre- occupied, absent-minded persons. The miser's walk is represented as stoop- ing, noiseless, with short, nervous, anxious steps. ! Slow steps, whether long or short, suggest I » gañil» or :r*ft*ctlTe -aia4». alumina, as th« case may be. ..... ... Where a revengeful purpose is hidden un- der a feigned smile the step will be slinking and noiseless. Wavering and changeable steps betray uncertainty, hesitation, and indecision. Obstinate people, who in an argument rely more on muscularity than on intellectual power, rest thc feet flatly and firmly on the ground, walk heavily and slowly, and stand with the legs firmly planted and far apart. The proud step is slow and measured ; the toes are conspicuously turned out ; the legs straightened.

An Island of Lacemakers. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Morning Post — 3 December 1907

'An Island of Lacemakers. The Maltese are famous as lacemakers, although the methods employed are of a primitive type. All Maltese lace is of neces- sity hand made. The people of Qozo, one of the Maltese group, have a deeply-rooted avortion to labor-saving machinery of all kinds. In many lines of industry there tho rnethods in vogue a century ago are em Eloyed tq-day. The art of lace-making is anded down from generation to generation, and one will often find an exceptionally beautiful design tho jealously guarded secret of a single family. Of Gozo's 25,000 popu- lation 10,286 aro women and girls, of whom al)Qut twp-thirds are lace-makers. The ar$ has also been taught in the schools since the recent impetus given to the trade. Wages are low there, and the peasant housewife is glad to add to the family exohequer by thus utilising her spare time. As her children grow up she trains them in the art, and it is not long before the female members of the family are found to be important fact...
