BULLETS WHICH HEAL. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 4 September 1915

BULLETS WHICH HEAL. A new bullet that carries in its nickel jacket first-aid kits filled with narcotics to deaden pain, and with antiseptics to heal the wound it makes, has been invented by Alex ander Poster Humphrey, of Pitts burg. The new anaesthetic bullet con tains both narcotic and antiseptic drugs. There are enough of the for mer so that a wound even in a vital part will cause little pain or shock to the nervous system. And while the narcotics are bringing relief to the wounded man the antiseptics prepar ations are cleansing the torn tissues and checking the flow of blood. The Humphrey bullet is exceeding ly simple in construction. It looks exactly like any bullet at first glance, but a closer inspection will reveal two annnlar grooves pressed into its nickel jacket. The grooves are where the first-aid drugs are stored. The one nearest the tip is for the narcotics and the other for the antiseptics. The drugs are encased in layers of gelatine, and when the grooves are filled a ...

Lost the Band. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 4 September 1915

Lost the Band. A certain Lancashire town boasts a full brass band, including a big drum. The drummer is about five feet high. He is also rather deaf. When the band parades it always takes the same course through the main streets. But the other day the leader, for some purpose known only to himself, turned dawn a by-street. The little drummer did not see "what was happening in front of him, for in compensation for his lack of height he holds his drum high before him. So with gaze concentrated on his musdc he banged away and marched straight ahead as usual. It was about five minutes afterwards when he had finished his part and, hearing no other instruments, he stopped. A large portion of the crowd had ac companied him, and they gave him a cheer. But he was ill at ease. He shoved his drum on one size and gazed ahead; then on the other, and did likewise. But he saw no band. Then, with astonishment mingled •with affright, he turned to the smiling bystanders and inquired: "Heigh! Has ony ...

WOMAN'S WIT. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 4 September 1915

WOMAN'S WIT. During one of the wars which kept Germany in constant trouble for many years, two Princes, brothers, were fighting on opposite sides. The younger brother, with a strong body of men, laid siege to his ancestral home, while the other was engaged in the war. After a long resistance hunger compelled the defenders to surrender; but the Prince, angry at the thought of tiie trouble and time he had spent, declared that only the women and children should be spared —the men were to be shot. The "women pleaded with him, but in vain. One thing he did permit, however, was that they should be al lowed to carry out on their backs their most precious possessions. This pleased the -women greatly, and soon each issued from the castle carrying her own husband on her back. The besiegers were angry and rush ed forward to slay the men, but the Prince prevented them, saying, "Touch them not; I gave them per mission, and a, Prince's word must not be broken." So thus woman's wit and love tri um...

THE STRASSBURG CLOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 4 September 1915

THE STRASSBURG CLOCK. Strassburg, the capital of Aleace Lorraine, which is a crucial centre of strategy in the western area of the war, is remarkable for the great clock of its cathedral. This clock, which is 20 feet in height, was made by Jean Baptiste Schwilgue in 1842. Besides various astronomical devices indicating true solar time, it has a great planetarum in which the revolutions of the plan ets are represented, so that the rela tive positions of each at any time can be seen at a glance. Then on a platform above are mov able figures representing the four ages of man. At the first quarter of an hour a child strikes the bell with a rattle; a youth in the garb of a hun ter strikes it with an arrow at the half-hour; at the third quarter a war rior strikes it with his sword; and at the fourth quarter an old man strikes it with his crutch. Then a figure of Death appears and strikes the full hour with a fleshless bone. On the highest platform is a natur al-sized figure of Christ, and...

FIRST TORPEDOES. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 4 September 1915

FIRST TORPEDOES, The first navy to use torpedoes was the Austrian. Although the ac tual inventor of the modern, weapon, Robert Whitehead, was an English man, he originally got tne idea from an officer in the Austrian navy. The Austrian's idea was to construct an ordinary sort of clockwork boat, and render it dangerous by loading the front of the vessel with a charge of some explosive. He mentioned the idea to Whitehead, Avho was then liv ing in Austria, and he, seeing the vast possibilities of the idea, at once set to work to improve it. At the end of two years or so he had pro duced a rough sort of torpedo, on the lines of the modern one. This first •weap n did not work properly, and after running a little distance, sank. At last, however, workable ones were produced, and Whitehead sold them to the Austrian navy. Since then, of course, other navies have adopted the torpedo, and his name has become famous.

USE IODINE FOR CUTS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 4 September 1915

USE IODINE FOR CUTS. In olden times, when men lived healthy out-of-door lives and their blood was strong and pure, cuts and wounds healed very quickly. A man could cut his hand or hark his shins and the hurt would heal in two or three days. But to-day cuts take longer to heal and infection is a very common thing, even with scratches. Yet isi spite of our unhealthy lives, our. weak blood and systems loaded with poisons not eliminated as nature intended, we have learned enough from medical science to offset in many ways our physical deteriora tion. In tiie matter of preventiug infec tion in small wounds, the older pro cesses have given way to new and simpler ones. The use of alcohol and carbolic acid, and peroxide of hydro gen has been diminished in favor of iodine. Iodine has long been used oil sprains and bruises where the skin was not broken, and of late years it has proved the quickest and surest disinfectant for cuts. Alcohol and peroxide cleanse the surfaces of the wound to some...

THE ONLY WAY TO STOP FOOD FERMENTATION. NEUTRALISE ACIDITY BY TAKING A LITTLE MAGNESIA. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 11 September 1915

-THE.ONLY WAY TO STOP FOOD MENTATION. NEUTRALISE ACIDITY BY TAKING A LITTLE MAGNESIA. It's the gas generated by fermenting food that distends your stomach and causes you to have a flushed face after eating, with headaches, heartburn, flatu lence, etc., and the reason why drugs, patent medicines and artificial digestants do not give you relief is that they have little or no effect upon the acidity which physicians have proved to be the root cause of practically all forms of stomach trouble. An absolutely pure antacid or neutralising agent mast be employed to neuralise this harmful acid, and the preparation invariably used in hospitals aud prescribed by physioians and special ists is bisurated magnesia. This you can obtain from all high-class chemists in either powder or tablet form, and in the majority of cases half-a-teaspoonful of the powder or two tablets taken with a little water after meals will be found quite sufficient to instantly neutralise excessive acidity of the stomach a...

War Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 11 September 1915

Seven hundred and fifty-two soldiers went down with the transport Royal Ed ward, which was torpedoed in the iEgean Sea last month.: It is understood that many German submarines are being sent to the bottom of the sea by ingenious methods adopted by the British naval authorities, but which cannot be at present divulged. Perhaps her serious losses of submarines has been a prime factor in Germany's recent promise to modify her piratical policy of sinking passenger ships with out warning. Prince Ranjitsinhji, the famous cricketer, who was shot in the face while grouse-shooting in England during short leave from the front, has lost the sight of one eye. Gold jewels and keepsakes are being accepted by the French mint for the melting pot. Though the amount thus secured is slight, it will help to swell the volume of gold in the vault of the Bank of France, which is described by the London " Daily Telegraph " as taking the form of a solid cube, exceeding lift, in height.

DEPUTATION TO THE COMMISSIONERS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 11 September 1915

DEPUTATION TO THE COMMIS SIONERS. On Wednesday a deputation from the Grenville Shire and the residents of Streatham and Cressy waited on the' Railway Commissioners and asked for an adjustment of the days on which the services between Cressy and Ballarat are run: They also asked for the restora tion of the midday train between BaU larat and Linton, alternately. If they coald not get a daily train they asked for a train on three days a week. The Commissioners agreed to the former re- j quest, and promised to look into the other. The result of the revised time table brought the mails to some of the residents concerned at the end of the day, and it was impossible to reply to them on the same day. The alteration they wanted would bring the mails in sufficient time to get a reply away the same day. The decision of the Com-' missioners will not involve an increase in the train mileage run under the revised schedule. The following district contributions have been made to the State Schools' ...

Curtailment of Trains. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 11 September 1915

— e PROTEST BY GRENVILLE COUNCIL. - At the last meeting of the Grenville Shire Council, a letter from the Berringa Progress Association, asking the Coun cil to strongly oppose the alteration in train service on the Uewtown-Beeac railway, was received. Cr Poynton was thoroughly in accord with the purport of the letter. The al terations in the train service were useless to the people along the line, whose re quirements must be considered by the department if the line was to be a pay ing one. The trains had been cancelled on Friday—a day not only when horse sales were held in Ballarat, but a day when late shopping was done in the city as well. If the department wanted to curtail the service let it dispense with the midday trains, and have a daily morning train to Ballarat, to return at a reasonable time in the evening. Cr Blakeley pointed out that the al terations in the train service were of the greatest importance to the whole district, and he urged that a deputation wait on the Mini...

IN GALLIPOLI. . HOW AUSTRALIANS LIVE. "BOYS" WITH BEARDS. MEN WANT RICE. (From C. R. L. Halloran, Special Cor respondent with the 2nd Australian Light Horse Brigade, for Sydney "Sun.") Firing Line, Near Gabatepe, Gallipoli, July 6, 1915. With not very important alterations, as regards area, the position of the Australian-New Zealand forces is about where it was a month ago. It is not for the military authorities to tell a mere trooper what their, inten tions are, but at the present time they seem to be content that the Austra lians and New Zealanders should just hang on where they are, without mak ing any attempt to advance. Person ally, 1 have not the slightest doubt that at any time required our men could go right forward and take the trenches in front of them. Of course, they couldn't do it without loss, and it might need their greatest effort to occupy, say, the second line of trench es ahead of them. It is one thing to take a trench, and quite another thing to hold it. Still, a...

MARK TWAIN'S COURTSHIP. For a considerable period before she met Mark Twain—Samuel Clem ens—Miss Olivia Langdon, who sub sequently became his wife, had beeai confined to her bed with what was believed to be an incurable disease, but she was at length miraculously restored to. health. The cure was the sensation of New York, and young Clemens, then a newspaper re porter, was sent there to interview Miss Langdon on her recovery: He obtained the interview for his news paper and brought back impressions of more interest to himself. Miss Langdon's parents were at j first strongly opposed to the young j newspaper man, and, for his part, his timidity stood in the way of the pro gress of his suit. But, finally, he screwed up courage to speak to Mr. j Langdon, and one morning quietly entered his future father-in-law's office.
