John Obeyed. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 7 May 1914

John Obeyed. Just prior to the balloon ascent, which formed one of the chief events at a big gala and flower show, a deter mined little woman elbowed her way through the crowd towards-the car, and began to make a scene. Her hus band had arranged for an aerial trip, and had already taken his set. He .hd, however, reckoned without his wife. "My dear good lady," said the aero naut, soothingly, "your husband is quite safe in my hands. I'm no nov ice, you know. I own quite a number of balloons!" "I'm not talking about balloons!" snapped the lady decidedly, "I'm talk ing about husbands. He's the only one 1 have, and he's not going up in that thing! Come out, John!" And John came out. "There ia nothing more uncertain than a horserace," exclaimed the man with a tendency to talk loud. And the melancholy friend remark ed— "You never worked in a meteorologi cal office, did you?"

At the Fire Station. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 7 May 1914

At the Fire Station. He Was undeniably from £ar beyond the suburbs, and as he was walking along a City street he stopped in front of the fire-engine house and looked in. "Have many, fires in town?" he asked. "Yes, we have them pretty often," replied the fireman. "Ever try to see how quick you can liitch-up?" "Oh, yes." At that moment an alarm came in. At the first stroke of the gong the men rushed to their posts, the doors of the stalls opened, and within a few seconds men, horses, and engine were speeding down the street. The young man watched the pro ceedings with admiration. "Well!" he exclaimed, when speech returned. "There ain't many .places where they'd go to all that trouble to show a stranger what they can do."

THE OLFACTORY NERVE OF INSECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 7 May 1914

THE OLFACTORY NERVE OF INSECTS. A great number of facts o£ the life o,' insects can hardly be explained ex cepting by admitting a particularly powerful olfactory sense in these ani mals. The examples are numerous; IE. in an ant-hill, an ant of the same species as those that inhabit it, but belonging to another swarm, tries to penetrate, it will immediately be ex pelled. Sometimes the hypothesis has been supposed of a sort of lan guage allowing each individual to make itself known, but deafness is general in the class of insects, and ants in particular are absolutely deaf. Pc then there only remains the odor special to each swarm which appears to constitute a mode of identification. In the same way, when the corpse of a small mammiferous animal is be coming decomposed in a field, a legion of sylphs and necrophors, strangers to the immediate neighborhood, com ing sometimes from a distance of several kilometres, arrive to lay their eggs there, guided, it would seem, merely by their sen...

Then She Rested Hers. "It says here: 'One of the idols most revered by the Koreans is the figure of a woman, seated resting her chin in lier hand,'" said Mrs. Chatter ley, reading from the newspaper. "Which proves that the Koreans are about the wisest nation on earth," suggested her husband. "How's that, Joshua?"

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 7 May 1914

KITCHEN WRINKLES. Powder the insides of new gloves to make them easier to slip on, and aiso, in the case of colored kid cnes, to prevent the dye from staining the hands. The cooler eggs are the quicker they will froth vhen whipped, so they should be beaten in a cool place. A pinch of salt always cools and fresh ens them. Vegetable and fruit stains on the fingers can be removed by dipping the fingers in very strong tea for a few minutes and then washing them__in clear, warm water. ~~ If bright saucepans and kettles have to be used over a smoky fire, smearing a little grease over the bright part will prevent the smoke from blackening the metal. If wash ed utter use in hot water, the pan will be as bright as ever. When using dripping for making a cake, add a fev; drops of essence of lemon or the juice of a lemon, and it will be found that this will not only remove the fatty flavor which cakes so often have when made with drip ping—especially mutton — but will very greatly improve the f...

A BOTANICAL CURIOSITY. I It is time we- should learn, more about that wonderful invention 01 Dame Nature known as. the. Venus fly-trap,-which, in the United States, finds its, home mainly- in> the- swamps near Wilmington, North Carolina. A specimen transplanted into moss and rich earth will thrive in the house if kept very moist., and it makes the best kind of fly-trap, for it is always on duty and looks after itself. As the older traps lose their vitality fresh shoots appear and new traps are de veloped. The Venus fly-trap 1b regarded as cne of the greatest wonders of the plant world, for it seems to exercise a discrimination of taste that 1b more than numan. It is provided with three delicate hair-triggers, and it exudes a sort of honey-dew that attracts the flies. Woe to the fly, however, that touches one of the triggers, for, quick as a flash, the two heavy leaves of the trap close upon the victim and crush it, much the same as an ordinary steel trap acts. There is no escape ...
