LUMINOSITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 7 August 1914
LUMINOSITIES. There are always times when we wish we could see something, which the darkness hides. The angler gives ' up because he cannot see his float; 1 the crickcter because he cannot see ' the ball. Luminous paint solves all these, and scores of other difficulties. And ? all that is required is to add . a j small quantity oi calcium sulphide -to ordinary white paint. Foats, balls, .keyholes, etc., thon become visible. A watch liffht lor use at night ! avoiding the striking of a match (can be made by putting, a small ! piece of phosphorus into a long glass ?phial, and then filling it one-third I full with hot oil. Cork it tightly, and, when light is needed, yncork for | a moment and close again. The top part of the, phial will be luminous, [and y.ou can see the tlm«.

ARE YOU LEFT-HANDED? [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 7 August 1914
' ARE YOU LEFT-HANDED ? I Why, don't you make more use of your left hand ? i It has been estimated that 97 per cent, of the English-speaking people are right-handed when they grow ug. 1 Seventeen out of every hundred are born right-handed, but the remaining eighty-three are born without any in clination to use one hand more than the other, and, therefore, become * right-handed owing to influences brought to bear on them during, their childhood days. | It is Impossible to" calculate how much men lose by neglecting, their left hands. Formerly - In primitive times, that is to say-everyone was ambidextrous ; and the sooner people .become ambidextrous again the bet ter. | In Japan, for many years post, soldiers and schoolboys have been taught to use both hands.'And this I wise example is now being followed jin Germany.

What is Horse-power ? Among many engineers there arises discussion as to the incidents sur rounding the origination of the term horse-power as applied to the steam-engine. The following quota tion from "Farcy on the Steam Engine," published in 1827, will be welcomed by many "The machinery in the great brew eries and distilleries in London was then moved by the strei>gth of horses, and the proprietors of these establishments, who were first to require Mr. Watt's engines, always inquired what number of horses an intended engine would be equal to. "In consequence, Mr. Watt made some experiments on tho strong horses employed by the brewers in London, and found that a horse of that kind, walking at tho rate of two and a half miles per hour, could draw* 1501b. avoirdupois by means of a rope passing over , a pulley, so as to raiso up that weight, with a vertical motion, at the rate of 220ft. per . minute. This* exertion of "me chanical power is equal to '3ft,000 lb. (or 528 cubic, feet)...

An atheist asked the Bishop if ho | believed that Jonah was swallowed i by tho whale. "When [ go to hen.-; von I will ask Jonah/' said his j lordship. "But supposing," the' other persisted, "ho in not there." "Then you will have to ask him," was the quick retort. At A farewell dinner to Dean John Gregg, Just made Bishop of Cork, a bottle of rich old Water loo port, instead of making a rapid circuit, rested before the guest of the evening.

An Awful Ornament. It is a curious study to note tho variety of feminine ornamenta tion in the different nations, and how what may bo considered as a beautifier by one rnco becomes a positive monstrosity and deform ity in tho eyes of another.

YOUR MORNING BATH. WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT IT. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 14 August 1914
YOUR MORNING BATH. WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT IT. 'IIte chief value of buthing lies in its exhilaration. Don't make a pcnanco of It. If you don't enjoy tt, it's doing you harm. The good of the bath is in the reaction, the Blow that follows it, not in tho plunge Itself. Cold in general, and j cold water in particular, is a tonic. First to the nervous system, through its branches in the skin, second to I tho heart and blood vessels as shown in the glow, and third to the mus cles and digestive glands. It is tho best appetiser known, worth all the tonics and hitters in existence. But, Hko any other tonic, whilo a small dose stimulates, a large one ; depresses. And the sir# of the dose j depends entirely on tho bather. For I a strong, vigorous person, in tho I prlmo of life, nothing is better than [tho cold plunge. It exhilarates, it clears tho brain of tho cobwebs of the night; it sends tho blood hum ming through tho veins ns nothing else in the wido world can. 1 Hut it takes a vigorous...

Ski Party Held at Bay by Wolves. A party of ski ers from Lemberg had narrow escapes from being eaten by wolves while making a tour in the Carpathian Mountains between Galicia and Hungary. They heard a howl during the afternoon, and found that a small pack of animals was following-them along a narrow forest track down a mountain. Twilight came on be fore they got clear--of tho woods, and tho wolves then became bolder and threatened to rush the last man of the party. It became impossible to procced to the place which it had been in tended to reach before nightfall, and the ski-ers took up a position where their rear was protected by a rock, and pussed the night behind their skis stuck upright in the snow. Nearly all had revolvers, and several had electric pocket-lamps, which really saved their lives, as they enabled them to fire at any wolf which ventured within range of the light. The animals prowled around them all night, but made o/T at daybreak, leaving several of. the pack dead.....
