Falling Hair Caused by Dandruff. HOW TO DESTROY THE DANDRUFF GERM AND SAVE YOUR HAIR. Thin, brittle, colourless and scraggy hair is mute evidence of a neglected scalp ; of Dandruff, that awful scourge. There is nothing so destructive to the hair as dand ruff. It robs the hair of its lustre, its strength and its very life, even-, tually producing a feverishness and itching of the scalp, which it not remedied causes the hair roots to shrink, loosen and die—then the hair falls out fast. For the pur pose of destroying the dandruff germ you should get your chemist to prepare a lotion consisting of 3 ounces bay rum, 1 ounce lavona de composee and -J- dram menthol crystals. Rub this thoroughly into the scalp with the finger tips. It will kill the dandruff germ at once and after the first application your hair will take on that life, lustre and luxuriance which is so beautiful. It will become wavy and fluffy, and have the appearance of abundance and incomparable gloss and softness, but what...

PSYCHOLOGY OF HUMOR. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 2 July 1914
PSYCHOLOGY OF HUMOR. ' A sense of k'uhiour'in men and wo . men serves as a shield between them and the'cares and responsibilities of life." This remark was made recently by Miss Graveson in a lecturo she gavo before tho Child Study Society in Lon don. As she was speaking, about chil dren, she added tho equally wise re mark:—"As children know nothing of one they have heithor need nor know ledge of tho other." Humor is nei ther an anacstliotic nor a hypnotic, but it is one of the groat collision pads of human lifo, and does a great deal to soften the more violent effects of tho work-a-day world. Its psychology is still rather obscure, and it is not one of tlioso phenomena that lends itself to laboratory measurement like perception of colors or quickness in appreciation of pain or pleasure or sensitiveness to heat or cold. So for the present no mathe matical unit has boon worked out oitlier for wit or humour. Nevertheless, it is an undoubted fact that humour is an excellent psychologic...

CORK PAVEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 2 July 1914
CORK PAVEMENTS. A new cork pavement is favorably re garded by the municipal authorities in various cities. It is noiseless to the tread, but at the same timo durable. It is. a variety of asphalt paving, in which cork is substituted for tho sand of the ordinary kind, preventing slip periness,. and deadening to an oven greater gegreo the vibrations from pass ing vehicles. Snow does not. freeze to it, aud as it is non-absorbent its qualities seem much superior to those of wood pavements. It is said to "stand" on heavy grades on which the ordinary asphalt cannot bo used at all, and still afford a perfectly, safe footing. For schools and'hospitals it would seem to bo the ideal pavement,, especially for courtyards, ; playgrounds,' and streets around 'the building. For thoso pur poses, the noiselessness and cleanliness of the new pavement give it a marked advantage.
