The Ear. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 4 June 1914

The Ear. The hk iman ear is a delicate piece of mechanism. :That which we ordin arily designate as the ."ear," is, Wafter all, only the mere, outer ??orch of.,a series of winding passages wvhich leiad from the world' without to the world within. 'Certain of these passages are filled with1lquid,ibesides having nmem branes stretched like parchment cur tains across The corridor. at, different points. .When a- souind-wave, strikes these they iare turned into vibrations and made to tremble like the head of a drum does: when struck with a stick or with: the lingers. Between two of these parchiment-like curtains a chain of minutebones: extends, which serves to. tighten or relax the membranes and communicate vibrations to them., In the ininermost place of all a row Iof ' ite threads, called .nerves, stretch like the istrings of a 'pian'o friom:itlhe last point; from 'hich? the tremfibling?s reach, passing thence inward to the brain.

CHINESE INGENUITY. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 4 June 1914

CHINESE INGENUITY. An interesting instance of harness ing iNature to assist in the work of man and machinery in building a bridge is given by the Rev. J. McGow an In his book "Side Lights on. Chi nese Life." The structure to which he refers was built two hundred years ago, and the engineers had many ser ious difficulties to overcome: "This old stone bridge consists of twenty-five spans, the widest of which measures sixty-five feet. The river is very rapid, and by placing the piers so far apart less surface is offered to the force of the waters. "The river is liable to very sudden and powerful rises. This feature ne cessitated that the roadway of the bridge be built of enormously heavy stones, to resist the impetus of the flood without :being.-lifted from their places. The great slabs are: seventy feet long, six thick, and four wide. How did the engineers of two qentur ies ago manage such a tremendous task? "The stone was quarried from the hills which rise directly from the riveri-bi...

Settling a Dispute. "I .must insist sir," exclaimed the pompous person, "that the device is a fire-plug.-" -"And I am equally confident that it is a water-plug," retorted the mild in dividual. "Now, my, dear sir," puffed the pompous person, "this device' was put here primarily as a plug on which to attach a hose in case. of fire in, the vicinity.

Finally, one day when Whistler mis chievously put the" usual. question: "And how is the picture coming- on?" Rossetti, ignoring the question, said: "Jimmy, I've a neat little sonniet hlere I'd like to read you." Jimmy sighed and submitted.
