Match Monopoly in France. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 8 July 1911

Match Monopoly in France. The Frencli Government lias for years held a monopoly in the manu- facture of matches. It must be noted that a State monopoly differs from a private one in this important point-the private monopolist only holds a monopoly if he can. If an opponent wants to break up the happy home he may-if he can. The holder continues to be a mono- polist-also if he can. Under a State monopoly the following hap- pens, or did in Fiance. Everybody pays an exorbitant price; they are inferior and non safety; many will not strike; and they cost several times what good matches do in England less than 50 miles away. In Paris the poor use the old splinter clipped in sulphur, which does not strike, but must be lit from a neighbour's fire. In country districts the ancient flint and tinder box survives. Quite recently a new invention came ont. This was a tiny metal box contain- ing a wick saturated in spirit, a small flint wheel, and steel, By pressing a strong spring, the box was ope...

Local & General News. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 15 July 1911

Local & Gçriçral The piano at the Town Hall is in a bad way, at least so says Mr Frith. This* gentleman recently inspected the piano at the Walden's request. He sent in two schemes one to cost £10 and the other £U either of which would make the pia.io a good diing, There was also a sun ot £5 for polishing, etc Last Monday the little estimate was brought before the Council but it was ev.i'eaüy a terrible shock. The little item for polishing etc was wiped out at once. As Cr. Lee remarked the main thing was to have the inside right. Cr. Gilbert and otheis thought if the job was to be done it was just ai well to do it at once. Cr, Lvaroyd thought that as the pian J was tuned only last month this scheme cuuld stand over and moved to this effect, This was seconded by Cr Gilbert, and carried. The management of Cartwright's pictures have changed the night of their weekly visit to Deloraine, and now show hare on Monday even- ings. Last Monday they had a big house, and showed a very f...

That they possess energy is known to anyone who has seen Malays engaged In any enter- prise which savors of sport. They do not mind the trouble if there is only some risk and excitement In tho work.

Tit bits from the Traveller. Kindly allow me a little space of your valuable medium ou a matter of great importance re the awful state of the roads around Deloraine. The Council as per usual seem to take the advantage of the wettest months of the year for repairing the roads, with the result that in sev- eral places it is almost impossible to travel in safely. The days arc drawing out again, which gives me an opportunity for sight seeing.

FACTORIES ACT. Mr. W. Sheridan M.H.A. waited on the Chief Secretary with refer- ence to the enforcement of the Fact- ories Act as it applies to employes in shops restaurants, etc. The Act provides that no employe shall work more than 52 hours per week in shops, yet through ignorance or otherwise tho law is being constant- ly broken or evaded.

Deloraine District Nursing Society. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 15 July 1911

Deloraine District Nursing: Socieiy. The third annual meeton!; of the above society was held in the cloak room, of the Deloraine Town Ha'l, on July 6th.. Only a small number of members were present, After the minutes were read, the annual re- port and balance sheet were adopted The work done by the several nurses during the past year has given every satisfaction, the visits totaling 1,104 for eight months The balance at the societys credit is good, but comparing the subscrip- tions and donations with previous years there is a steady falling off and it probably means only a matter of time when the interest of the public will cease. The matter was ment- ioned at the meeting and it was thought that if a branch of the Bush Nursing scheme was formed here the present work might be with ad- vantage merged into it. The following is a statement o accounts for the year: To balance in bank £259 9 ll Interest State saving bank 4 0 3 Nett proceeds from dance 19 5 0 RECEIPTS Interest L. S. B. pro...

SEEING ONE'S BRAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 15 July 1911

SEEING ONE'S BRAIN. In Professor Lloyd's work, "Tho End ot the World," the experiment of seeing one's own brain ls rather in- teresting. The experimenter provides himself with a lighted candle, and enters a perfectly dark room. He stands bo fore a black curtain or wall or any other dark, flat surface, so that dé- tails cannot be seen by the candle's feeble light. The candle la moved laterally to and fro in front of the eyes, keeping it about six inches from the face ami just below the tip of the nose. In a few minutes something, aa if a thin miat, seems to grow before the eyes lt becomes more definite and gains outline, and then soon one may dis- tinguish the venation and the divi- sion of the brain. One ls seeing his own brain! A change of position of the candle will bring out other portions into view, but as Boon as the lateral movement is stopped the vision, whatever lt ls. fades away The example given ls very singular. According to the author, there Is noth- ing more wonderful i...

MAN, THE MOST PERFECT MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 15 July 1911

MAN, THE MOST PERFECT MACHINE. Ia the "Sclentlüc American" Dr. J. B. Hunter oilers some interesting comments on Professor Jules Amara studies on man as a machine. The result oí a large number oí careiul experiments is to show that the Im- mun machine gives a prollt oí from 2û. to KU per cent, on the fuel, In other words, tüo food, consumed, in thu Uest artillcial machines the eillclency is only 14 per cent. Thus man ls su- perior to all mechanisms. And accord- ing to Dr. Hunter, lt has been proved that man is "not only the greatest psychic entity on earth, but also that cms superlative mind ls housed In thu most capable and serviceable machine chat breathes and uses muscle." That ts, the huniun machine ls held to bo superior to all other animal machines. Professor Amar'B results lead io some practical consideration, ile rtnds, for example, that a man who eats liberally ought to make up tho weight lost by labor in twenty-four hours. If ne loses weight this shows that tho labor has be...
