FOR ROUGH HAIR. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 February 1911

FOR ROUGH HAIR. Some hair refuses to be smooth i and glossy, no matter what carc is bestowed upon it. The result is an unkempt head. Systematic treat ment is the best remedy ; if that is out of the question, do one's best at-home, with regular brushing, al ilea to tonic massages. /\s nair is usually rough because of lack of natural oil, seek to supply it. Each night before retiring rub into the scalp a few drops of almond oil. This must not be spread on the long hair, as it makes it greasy and a dust collector. Apply the oil with finger-tips or with medicine dropper, then rub in well by lightly pinching the scalp with thumb and first fin ger of each hand. Spread the fin gers several inches apart, and gradually draw them together. Keep this up all over the head . in different directions.

A SWING COOP FOR BROODY HENS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 March 1911

A SWING COOP FOR BROODY HENS. The annexed diagram illustrates a coop designed to cure broodiness in hens. It is easily made, all that is required being two box ends about 3ft. square, and some ordinary laths. The mode of construction is as fol lows : — Stand the box ends ud and nail on laths 1\ inches apart for the bottom and two sides. The top is covered with canvas tacked along one edge and tied on the other. This curtain is raised when the intending sitters are placed in the coop or when they are removed later. Now bore a hole in the ends a trifle above the centre and pass a pole or piece of gas pipe through. The ends of the pole or pipe should extend about lft. be yond the coop. The coop is one lath long or 4ft. It is now ready to hand by dropping the ends into two fork ed posts as illustrated. It is im possible for a hen to sit on the slat ted bottom.

A CITY OF SALT. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 March 1911

A CITY OF SALT. The most interesting salt mines in the world are said to be those at Wieliczka, in Galicia, which form an underground collection of streets, houses, churches, and monuments. Their history can be traced back a thousand years, and they are still being worked. The mines form an oval tw .ity-two miles in length and half a mile in central width. The aggregate length of the galleries at present accessible is upwards of six ty-five miles, and that of mining railways twenty-two miles. En ormous cavities amounting to 106, 000,000 cubic feet have been pro duced during the last century be low the town of Wieliczka by work ing the rock salt, ;and as these cavi ties — kept up artificially by timber ing — are continually increasing, the inhabitants of Wieliczka some time ago were fearing lest their town be exposed to the risk of collapsing, and the local building activity was therefore temporarily confined to the erection of wooclen structures. Present regulations* according to wh...

A COFFIN OF MOLTEN STEEL. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 March 1911

a c6ffin%f molten steel. .Perhaps the most singular coffin in which a human being ever was buried is the one of which the fol lowing story is told : A workman engaged in ?- casting metal for the manufacture of ordnance in Wool wich Arsenal, a few years agfo, lost his balance, and fell into a cauldron containing twelve tons of molton steel. The metal was at white heat, and the man was utterly consumed in lets time than it takes to tell it. The War Office authorities held a con ference, and decided not to profane the dead by using the metal in the manufacture of ordnance, and the mass of metal was actually buried, and a Church of England clergyman read the service for the dead over it.

WHAT RED CORAL IS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 March 1911

WHAT RED CORAL IS. The red coral that is used for necklaces is a horny axis which sup ports a number of soft-bodied ani mals, or polyps, the entire struc ture bearing a strong resemblance to a small shrub. The fishermen, after they have brought this shrub like colony to the surface, clean the soft animal matter away, preserv ing the red core, or axis, which is sold for the manufacture of jewel lery. Although red coral contains lime, it is largely composed of a substance akin to horn, and like horn, it takes a fine polish. Animal substances of this. nature almost in variably change their colour when brought into intense heat.

THE WORK OF ONE NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 March 1911

THE WORK OF ONE NIGHT. The poet William Sharp, wheth er writing under his own name or under that of 'Fiona Macleod,' was in love with his art, and am used himself by recording details of the birth of his creation. One night, according to the Memories of his Life by his widow,he stayed up writing until breakfast-time. It was an eventful night for our lit erature, as his labours resulted in eight poems. They were as fol low : Dedicatory lines : 'Al Far del la Notte' (thirty-one lines), 'Clou- ds' (thirty-one). 'The Olives of Tivoli' (thirty), 'At Veii' (eighty six), 'The Bather' (sixty-eight), 'De Profundis' (twenty-six), and 'Ultima Sospiro' (thirty-seven). When one. regards, the quality '-f this most mystic and modern of the poets, the task is almost past be lief.. Many writers could beat this record, but in the case of William Sharp the dreams of that Italian night are imperishable.

THE DELICACY OF A HOOF. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 March 1911

THE DELICACY OF A HOOF. A horse's foot is a wonderful piece of Workmanship, more deli cate than a watch, and contains a multitude of intricate springs, lev ers, and exquisitely-fitted points, all packed for safety into the outer case which we call the hoof. One moment's consideration of the size and weight of the animal will show that, in running or leaping, a severe shock would be felt by the creature's brain every time his feet touched the ground if the fall were not broken in some way.
