FIGURES AND DAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 14 March 1914

FIGURES AND DAYS. Throughout tho ages fanciful Belief and suporstition have invested the dayB of the week each ivitk a: peculiar 'sig nificance. Now the statistician lias curious advice and information can bo followed suit, and from his figures much gleaned. If, for example, you aspiro to become a murderer, and still to keep in favor with those who delight to juggle with figures, you will bo well advised to let your choson victim rest in peace till Saturday. Saturday week, or, better still, some Saturday in the very indefi nite future. At any rate, by studying figures you will find that of the total number of murders proved in any year an over whelming majority were committed on Saturdays. Why? Well, why is it that so many people elect to get married on a Wed nesday- And why iB it that more of thoso people who aro tirod of life bring their careers to an untimely end on Tuesdays than on any other day?

CIRCULAR SAWS OF PAPER. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 14 March 1914

CIRCULAR SAWS OF PAPER. Paper is at present used for all pos sible purposes in the industries and in all possible forms. It fc-as even been possible by means of compression to give it a degree of hardness compar able with stone, so that it can bo used as building material. The latest uso for paper however is perhaps the most peculiar. According to a European journal a factory is said to oxist in England wliich is manufacturing circu lar saws from paper. These paper saws aro used for the manufacturing of fine furnituro, veneer and other thin plates of wood, which must be treated espec ially carefully. Some time ago cir v.lar saws made from drawing paper ore shown in an English exposition. The saws were driven by an eloctric motor and produced fine boards, which could not have been made better even by the finest steel saw. The veneers made in this way are fco smooth that the cabinet makers can uso them without further planing.

HELPFUL ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 14 March 1914

HELPFUL ADVICE. He was consulting the lawyer on what was, to liim, an important subject. His eyes wore heavy from loss of sleop and temper, yet the wrath that con sumed his soul made rest impossible. • "It's this way," ho said. "The man »•. ho lives next door to me has a. beast of a cat that spends the nijrht sitting on my fence and yowling. Neither my wife, the now baby, nor myself has had any sleep for weeks, and I am about fed up. The man noxt door refuses to get rid of the cat, and I want you to tell ino what to do." The lawyer was young, and sat and looked about as wise as a suet-pudding, but said nothing. "I've got a right to shoot the cat, haven't I?" "I should not feel justified in advis ing such an extreme course. As I see it, the cat is not your property." "Perhaps nob; but the fence is!" "Aha! Then you have j;ot him, for you can pull tho fonce down!"

A BRAZILIAN RAT-CATCHER. RaCs arc .1 great nuisnncc in certain parts of Brazil, where the climate is very warm. The common cat docs not thrive for some unaccountable rcasor.. but is rcplaccd by a domestic rat catcher, whose presence causes a de cidedly unpleasant sensation to visitors when first they come in contact with the creature. Tt is a species of small boa-constrictor—the gibola. The snakes are not^ venomous. They sleep in the house, generally taking up their posi tion at the foot of the stairs-. When nightfall approaches they begin to awaken, and during the night they glide swiftly about the premises look ing for rots- GiboJn.s aro offered for Bale in the markets of Bahia and Pcrnamburo at prices ranging from one to five dollars, according to the size of the creature. It is claimed that they are so easily domesticated that, if removed from one house to another, . they invariably return to the house whence they have been taken.

"Who was that you met just now, Marguerite?" Marguerite Maxwell, with her hand on the wicket gato of the cottage gar den, paused; not bocauso sho had any objections to answering the question, but because, though her stepmother asked her carelessly, the girl had a curious impression that the careless ness was not quite genuine. The hesita tion, however, was only momentary; then Marguerite replied: "It was Mr. Falconer. How did you know I met anyone?" UI could see your white dress flutter ing out from behind the hedge, at the turn of the lane; but the hedgo hid tHo person to whom you spoke." Marguerite threw off her hat, and rumpled her fingers through her short brown ourla. Mr. Falconer said he would call in this evening, if ho might," she said, "'so, of course, I gave him permission."

CLEANING A GUN OF LEAD. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 14 March 1914

- OLEA'NING A GUN OP LEAD. There is nothing that will keep a gun or otlier stool or iron articles in .so good a, condition as mercurial oint ment. It has been .used for years by surgeons to prevent their instruments from rusting. Do not grease the ar ticle, simply wipe it with a cloth sat urated with tho ointment. In caring for a gun, wipe it out well, then run a wiper through satur ated with the ointment, and there will ho no rusting whatever. Neither will tho outside of the gun rust if tho oint ment is applied thero. The ointment will not onlj' prevent rust, but will also loosen any lead in tho barrel. If a gun has become leaded and is wiped as described, it will appear to Be full of rust or dirt after standing a few days. If wiped again, tho wiper will be found covered with minute par ticles of lead which have been loosened by the mercury, and the barrel will be clean. The mercury has no affinity for iron, but has for loa3.

QUITE MISTAKEN. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 14 March 1914

QUITE MISTAKEN. Into the railway-station restaurant walked a burly traveller, clad in rough tweeds. He was evidently in a hurry, and ordered cold beef, which was brought without delay. Seeing a dish of potatoes before an immaculately clad gentleman of the knutty persuasion, he requested him to pass them down the table. This the gentleman made no effort to do. Instead, he focussed, with the aid of a go!d-rimmed monocle, a stony glare on the new-comer. "Er—did you take me for the—er —waiter?" he drawled. By way of an answer the burly one called the waiter. "I say, waiter, I'm awfully sorry. I really must apologise for mistaking that person over there for you. Can't think how I came to do it. However, it was all a mistake, and I hope you won't be annoyed about it. Now, if you'll have the goodness to bring those potatoes round this way, l'il get on with my meal."
