Drunk on Strawberries. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 22 January 1914
Drunk on Strawberries. Those who cannot resist the temp* tntiou of too many strawberries should not lie surprised if they are attacked with ''fruit drunkenness," for it is an extraordinary fact that the excessive eating of strawberries often results in many of the sensa tions connected with alcohol attack ing the eater. These symptoms con sist of giddiness, headache, blurred sight, und occasionally double vision. -For strawberries contain far more acid than most of the other fruits in season at the same time, and this juice acts very quickly on the ner vous system, especially in the case of stout and full-blooded people. "Ex cessive rhubarb-eating can also produce symptoms of intoxication, owing to the excess of oxalic acid which lurks in this l'ruit. But this is only one of many ways in which symptoms of drun kenness can be developed, apart from excess of alcohol. It is quite possi ble to become temporarily intoxi cated by excess of emotion, whe ther it be sorrow, joy, or music. ! ...

No "Ear for Music." [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 22 January 1914
No "Ear for Music." f I>r. lUrman-Bera, after making a study of the ears of famous musi cians, has come to the conclusion that the construction of that organ has lit(lo to do with one's musical appreciation, and that it is not ac cessary to havo even normal ear drums to become a finished musi cian. I»r. lijrman-Uer;i snys that his ob servations have shown that com posers as a class have erect, al most vertical ear-drums, and that musicians other than composers have ear-drums the position of which varies from the slanting to the \ertical, including all intermediates forms. Whether l'r. Birman-liora's discovery will result in the discard ing of that handy and much-used but now useless phrase, "an ear for music," of course, remains to be soen.
Origin of the Polka. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 22 January 1914
Origin of the Polka. ^ Probably few readers, though they may, indeed, bo enthmriustlic dancers, oro acquainted with the origin of the polka. Somewhere about tho year 1831, a young peasant girl, who was in the service of a citizen of Elbctelnit*, in Bohemia, performed a dance of her own invention ono Sunday afternoon, for her own special delec tation, and snng a suitable tuno to it. The schoolmaster, Joseph Neruda. who happened to bo present, wrote down the melody, and tho new dance whs soon after publicly performed for the first time in Elbeteinit/. About, ISM5 it made its entrance into Prague, and then obtained the name of polka, from the Bohemian word pulka, or half, from tho Jinli step prevalent in it. Four yean later, it was carried to Vienna >y a Pmgur hand. In 18-10 a dancing master of Pn.^i.e danced The polka, with great success, nt the Odeon, in IVtris, whence it found its way with extraordinary rapidity; to every dancing-room.
CHAPTER XIII. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 22 January 1914
CHAPTER XIII, It is now time for us, whether it suits our inclination or not, tot re move ourselves from the perfumed at mosphere breathed by Mildred Moore and her two adorers, and return to , those who ore certainly more worthy of our regard, and who have been i neglected through no fault of their own. I mean the Carpenters. On the second floor of Mr. Carpen ter's splendid mansion there was a j large, well-lighted room, intended ■ for, and formerly used as a nursery. | It was now doing duty as a school i room, after the manner we shall see. I In this room, bright and comfor table, sat one da> Schoolmaster Cummings, formerly attendant at Chambers-street Hospital, and his class of one—the Unknown. Both were well dressed, both intel ligent-looking. Cummings was nlert, watchful, and there was an unceas ing activity about him that proved | the choice of Dr. Carpenter to have been a wise one. On the other hand, the intelligence of the Unknown seemed entirely of a subdued, or, as it we...

The eyes ! that had been ho c;Jm now grew at • times wild and vengeful, they would ; *erm to be peering off into space, as if loo'ung for something not within I reach. Jle would stand for minutes at j a time, pondering with knit brow iover Home thought that was puzzling his brain, and then would shake his head and resume whatever oecupa : tion lie had been engaged upon.

CARE FOR THE MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 22 January 1914
CARIC f'OIt THE MILK. The following statement, made by Professor 0. F. Hunziker before tho farmers attending the short courses at Purdue, sums up in a few wordu tbe situation relative to the care of milk and cream on the farm : "Cleanliness and low temperature arc the fundamental essentials in the proper care and handling of milk and cream, regardless of what disposition may he made of the product. ' The purpose of these essentials is to pre vent or retard bactcrial fermenta tions which shorten the life and im pair the keeping quality and whole someness of milk and its products. When the dairjman disregards these essentials he becomes a menace to the health and life of the consumer and xi demoralising factor of the markets of dairy products, curtailing the financial success vt his own busi ness. With due attention to the pro per care of milk and cream he be comes a bencfactor to tho human family, a promoter of high quality of dairy products, and a guardian of the welfare and prosner...
