The Eccentric Clubs of New York. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 4 September 1914

The Eccentric Clubs of New York. 1 ? f ? The clubs of New York are in many cases novel and eccentric in character. Thero is, /or instance, the Tenderloin. Tenderloin is the 'nickname of a district of rather tin- | savoury reputation between Four teenth and Forty-second Streets. Fart of it is thickly inhabited by coloured peoplo; another part con tains most of tho theatres ; and in the heart of it, established in ft tumble-down woodon shanty, which was once known as " Eel Pot/' is the Tenderloin Club. It was formorly a haunt of thieves; it now numbers among; its members some of tho moot distinguished authors, artists, musicians, doctors, and lawyers in the city; but it still rotuins many of tho internal characteristics of a thieves' kitchen. Tho floors are sanded or saw-1 'dusted ; the furniture is rude in the oxtremo; and thcro is an ostenta tious absence of comfort ; and short pipes and stone mugs ot beer are tho order of tho evening. Above I the entrance is tho motto, " Who enters...

THEREFORE, ADVERTISE. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 4 September 1914

THEREFORE, ADVERTISE. The following/paragraph from an article by Andrew Lang may provo profitably suggestive to tlfoso who have wares to sell and are shy about advertising them "When a goose lays an egg," said Mr. Lang, "she just waddles off as if she was ashamed of it-because she is a goose. When a hen lays an egg-all, she calls heaven and earth to witness it. The hen is a natural-born advertiser. Henco the demand for hen' eggs excoods the demand for goose eggs, and- tho hen has all the business she can at tond to."

Is the Sun Losing Mass? [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 4 September 1914

Is the Sun Losing Mass ? Tho work of Kinstein on the Principle of Relativity shows that a body which radiates energy loses a portion of its mass depending on the energy radiated. It follows that tho sun, which continually ra diates energy, is constantly losing mass. M. J. Hosier has calculat ed that tho sun loses a mass equal to that of our earth in thirty mil lion years. If it lio assumed that the mass thus lost is gravitational mass, it follow's that the longth of the year increases by six seconds in a million years, and that in the samo time the mean longitude of the earth is affected in such (r. way as to protluco a variation of one tenth of a ^year, i.e., a retardation of thirty-six days in the seasons. Such variations arc too minuto to be ob servable. In stellar systems pos sessing a higher temperature the ef fect would be much more marked, for tho energy radiated by a body varies as the fourth power of its absolute temperature. Jf, as M. Nordmann believes, there exists stars ...

RESOURCEFUL. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 4 September 1914

RESOURCEFUL. The late General Booth," said aj Salvation Army official, "often used j to urge the ' down-and-outer ' to cul- j tivat<flhe quality of resourcefulness.! "He would illustrate this quality j by the story of a resourceful! American editor, who found, one J night, that ho had neither adver- j tisernents nor copy for his third . page. The page accordingly ap peared blank, with a note in small | type at the top :-. " 'This space will be useful for the ] children to write upon.'

A Seal Story. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 4 September 1914

I A Seal Story. The following article on " Seals as pets" may be of interest, soys a correspondent." While ' shore-shoot ing on one of tho Orkney islands, I suddenly stumbled on a young seal which had evidently been enjo3*ing a nap. Being anxious to capture it ftlivo and uninjured, I was at a loss how to proceed until X re called some of tho reminiscences of a near neighbour, an old Davis-Strait man. Profiting by this recollection I picked up a handy tangle-stalk and, ever so lightly, struck the seal over tho snout. Tho effect was as tonishing. With a tremulous move ment of the entire body the animal rolled over on its back, tho fore flippers waving pathetically for a moment as tf deploring the inhu manity of man. Catching sight of an old sack washed up on the beach I then pulled it hastily over the head of the stunned animal, and slinging tho burden on my back soon had the satisfaction of feeling that my cap tive was very much alive. For over a week I kept him anchored by one of hi...

Effect of Mind and Body. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 4 September 1914

Effect of Mind and Body. "The. exaltation' of victory makes .wounded soldiers oblivious of gain, and the depression of defeat in creases mortality. If a cat is frightened for ten or fifteen min utes by a barking dog, a sample of its blood will make strips of certain muscles relax when thoy are immersed in it, though such a por tion of blood had no effect on them before the emotional disturbance. Frightened rabbits show almost complete prostration, and their brain cells, in contrast with those of nor mal animals, tako a deeper stain from certain chemicals, and their sizo and shape ^are strikingly al tered." These well vouched state ments are mado by Mr. . F. W. Eastman, and ho adds an interesting experiment. "If an individual is placed in circuit with a delicate galvanometer and made to laugh, to feel sad, or is 'suddenly surpris ed, there will be movements in the instrument indicating the passage of small electric currents.
