WHY BAD TEMPER MAKES YOU UGLY. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 17 June 1914
WHY BAD TEMPER MAKES YOU UGLY. By a Medical Man. It is said by many people that, whilst the art and science of surgery ad pances by leaps and bounds, the s;iter science of metdicine moves onearsi. very slowly. This shows lack of !now ledge. It must be admitted that sur gery has made marvellous progress of late years. Things thiounht in:pos sible a score, even a dozen yea.rs ago are of everyday occurrence now. An incised woundl of the heart htas been stitched up, a ruptured bladd-r sutured, a stomach removed, the Iares Intestine excised, a piece of dtishaued bone sawn off and a piece of sound bone grafted in its place, :ol all the patients recovered. But the pIyslcians have not been ille. The researclle in embryology, tracing tile origin Af tissues and the gradual building-up of the more complicated organs, hIve thrown much-needed light on the me-t vital phenomena of life. Inquiries into the molecuhlir changes of nerve cell.. the chemistry of the human bodly, thi? actvlties of certai...
FOOLHARDY GUIDES. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 17 June 1914
FOOLHARDY GUIDES. The guides who conduLct touri(ts to Vesuvius often go to ridicu lous risks to amuse their patrons. A favourite expedient is to take an egg and put it into a small fis sure in the mountain side to he boiled by the heat. The tourist is not allowed to. leave the path and go to the fissure; so does not re alise that the guide. in order to reach a point where the trick is practicable, has to walk across a layer of lava which is so thin that it nmay break at any moment. Should it do so, the man's leg?s will go through into actually mol ten lava, -wthtl fatal results. The Italians seem to think nothing of the risk, and gladly undergo it to earn a franc, or even for brn undo's sake, to amuse the tourist who is employing them. Orie of the most ldaring exlploits on record is that of a steeple climber, who, some years ago, com reived the novel idea of cc.lehrating the Emperor's birthday by climl ing the steeple of St. Stephcn's at I'ienna, nnd there hoisting a flag.

LADIES' COLUMN. S THE WOMAN-AT-ARMS. I ride to a tourney wit!l sordid things: They grant no lquarter, but what care M v casque is crested with Iron wings, .ndi loVe. for a: sword, 2at ly stirrup swings, S\And shrill inmy car Truth's trumpet sings: "To:Iugh t ey slay you, you shall not die!" i hav\' b:rterrld and begged, I have cheated and lied; 13u. nos, however the battle betide, Uncowedi by thie clamor, .I ride, ride, ride!

EDUCATION OF THE YOUNG. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 17 June 1914
EDUCATION OF THE YOUNG. By a Mother. For all purposes of permanent in fluence, no period is like childhood and youth. And a man's youth, for moral improvement, lasts the whole of his allotted lifetime on earth. Some young people grow old too fast for their highest advantage. They think they have finished their education while yet in their teens. And some mothers foolishly grant practical ad mission to the.idea. But education is never finished so long as opportunity continues, however early it may com mence. The whole of this short life may be called the period of youth for purposes of improvement. It is the period that determines the weal or woe that comes after it. And of this brief probation the first half is gen erally decisive of all that follows. The shape of the tree is that which it took when a twig.' "The chTild is father to the man," simply because the man is formed in childhood. Old age is generally the ripe fruit of which childhood and youth are the seed-time and period o...

"Well, sit down and make out your report at once, and don't waste any time about it !".retortedl the sergeant, who was something of a disciplinarian. Dos'n sat Pooke and wrote, with much diflicalty, for somn minutes. "Sergeant," he said, looking lup. "ITo1 do you spell Nebuchadnez zar ?" "If you don't know, I ain't going to tell you !"" once more gruntel the officer. Pooke pondered the matter for a considerable time, then rising wear ily, prepared to leave the station "Where .aie you going ?" asked his superior. "Y'ou've not made out the report yet.'?

DIFFERENCE IN GOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 17 June 1914
DIFFERENCE IN GOLD. Most people suppose (says an as sayer) that all gold is alike when re fined; but this is not the case. An experienced man can tell at a glance from what part of the world a gold pieces comes, and in some cases from whit part of a particular gold district the metal was obtained. The Australian .gold, for instance, is dis tinctly redder than the Californian, and this difference in color is always perceptible, even when the gold is 1000 fine. Again, the gold obtained from the placers Is yellower than that which is taken directly from quartz. Why this should be the case is one of the mysteries of metallurgy, for the pla cer gold all comes from the veins. The Ural gold is the reddest found any where. Few people kn w the real color of gold as it is seldom seen unless heav ily alloyedI which renders it redder than when pure. The purest coins ever made were the 50 dollar pieces that used:to be common in California. Their coinage was abandoned for two reasons first becaus...
