The phalanz of students arrived early, as is their wont, and began by making audible comments on the ad vertisoments on the trOn curtain. Soon cat-calls resounded through the rapldly-filling house. "Clementine" and several other masterpieces were rendered, at least with gusto, and at last there arose the cry, "Oalbraith! Galbraith'!" from every corner. The audienace turned in their seats and looked up at the animated scene in the gallery. It was a fine thing to be an Edinburgh student! As the iron curtain rose sl...

POLITENESS IN THE HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 17 June 1914

POLITENESS IN THE HOME. It Is significant to observe how some men fall to know how to treat their wives and sisters when they meet them. It seems to them quite unnecessary to lift their hats; or to give heir nearest and dearest the courtesy they would freely render to any woman outside of the domestic circle. This should not be, and the sooner a revolution is accomplished the bet ter. The ablest and most persuasive treatise on the etiquette of the home will not be able by itself to work the change, alhough it would be helpful towards that end. What is needed is the right training of boys and girls. Courteous behavior should be en forced by parents in the same way as other good qualities are taught. One of the most successful instruct ors of the young in our day bears this testimony: "People complain of the way ch!ld n'behave, and lay the blame of their behavior on the day school; but if they would only make the children do at home as they are required to do in school, matters wouldl...

MEISSONIER AND HIS GARDENER [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 17 June 1914

MEISSONIER AND HIS GARDENER Meissonfer. like many other celebri ties, had a passion for gardening. His gardener, an accomplished botanist, knew to perfection the seeds of every plant, and Meissonfer had often tried in vain to throw him off his guard. "This time I have got him," the ar tist remarked to a party of friends at the dinner-table, ann he showed them a small packet containing the dried roe of a herring. He then sent for the gardener. "Do you know this seed?" Mession ier Inquired. The gardener carefully scrutinised the grailns. "Why not?" he said, at last; "they are the seeds of the Polpus fluscimus, a very rare tropical plant." "Ifow long will they be in coming up?" Meissonier asked, with a chuckle of suppressed exultation. "About a fortnight, was the reply. Two weeks later the guests were again assembled at 3Meissonler's table, and after dinner the gardener was an nounced. "Monsieur Meissonfer," the man said, "the seed has Just come up." "Ah! you surprise me! the artist ex...

A New Invention. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 17 June 1914

A New Invention. A remarkable invention pregnant with useful possibilities is the wire less long-distance mirror. Its pur pose, in brief, is to convey an ima.ge in the same manner that sounds are now communicated. It is a radical improvement on the old-time camera obscura;', a structure in which the real image of an ob Ject is projected upon a whitoe table or other plane surface. Not only does the new apparatus reflect on a mirror all objects located and all happenings occurring within a much greater area than the camera obscura, but it operates at night. -lust how the machine works has not yet been revealed, but it is known to consist of 'rt .eh -of wires attached to a tall last, and it is this wreb which receives the inmpressions andi projects them on to thie riirror Iocated at tlr barse ,if the nmst. The principal value of the new ap patraturs will Ila in its opplication to ships. It Is expectedi to lre\'ent collisions with other ship:s, ice bergs, or derlicts ty rliae.losringi t...

Glaciers and Icebergs. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 17 June 1914

Glaciers and Icebergs. 3JIst of us talk of glaciers and ice bergs familiarly ; but how nnmy know how they are formed ? When snow falls in the lower re gions, or at. high altitudes, Mr. A. G. Ogiliie explained to a large audience of young folks in the thea tre of the RIoyal Geographical So ciety at Burlington Gardens, it. does not melt, or it . melts very little, even during the summner. So the layers of snow are constantly increasing. When the sl6pes -are steep, the accumulated snow falls as an avalanche; but on a high table-l land there is no such escape for it. But the snow, falling year after year, does not build up a great snow mountain, because the lower layers are pressed down by the great weight, the air is squeezed out, and granular ice is formed. This downward motion is the . es sential feature in the .glacier. First the grains of ice :are no bigger than a pin' head; but they gradually, as the pressure increases, get bigger and higger, and the large ones absorb the smaller....
