The new composition has such resill ency and power of expansion to take up the vibrations of a ship and all changes in temperature, fron 30deg. below zero in winter to 100 dog. In the summer, In addition, tie flooring forms a perfect bond with wood, steel, and concrete-so perfect that it can. ,tot be removed except with a hammer and chisel, As it is entirely mineral in character, it is absolutely proof against cold, fire, or water. The com. position Is a mixture of asphalt, pow dered stone, and other ingredients, which is cooked in a mass for many hours. It Is applied boiling hot and solidifies quickly.

NORTHCOTE AND PRESTON SCOTTISH SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 20 June 1914
NORTHCOTE AND PRESTON SCOTTISH SOCIETY, By the attendance on Wednesday evening at monthly sqgial and dance of the above society it is very evident that these functions are gaining popularity, Long before the time of starting the hall was crowded with an audience that would be a credit to any city, It must be pleasing to the Chief (Bro. John Angus) and his committee to see their labors so well rewarded. The third Wednesday of the month is evidently being "booked" by the Northcote citizens. From the entry of the chief (accompanied by the pipers, under Piper Major Hugh McIntosh,) to the last item of a lengthy programme, the warm reception accorded the various items must have gladdened the hearts of the artists and made them feel as if it was "just like bein' at hame," Mr. J. E. Preston's fine baritone voice was heard to advantage in "Tom Brown" and "Trooper Johnny Ludlow," in both of which he had to submit to encores, Miss F. Pascoe Webb was, as the Scotch say, "uncolguid," In "Robin A...

The usual matinee takes place this afternoon at 2.30. A magnificent Pathhe color drama of modern warfare, "The Curse of War," is announced for three nights, commencing Monday, June 22.

WHY BAD TEMPER MAKES YOU UGLY. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 20 June 1914
WHY BAD TEMPER MAKES YOU UGLY. By a Medical Man, It is said by many people that, whilst the art and science of surgery ad vances by leaps and bounds, the sister science of medicine moves onwmrds very slowly. This shows lack of know ledge. It must be admitted that sur gory has made marvellous progress of late years, Things thought impos slble a score, even a dozen years ago are of everyday occurrence now. An Incised wound of the heart has been stitched up, a ruptured bladder sutured, a stomach removed, the large intestieho excised, a piece of diseased bone sawn off and a piece of sound bone grafted In its place, and all the patients recovered, But the physlcians have not been Idle, The researches in embryology, tracing the origin of tissues and the gradual building-up of the more complicated organs, .have thrown much-needed light on the most vital phenomena of life, Inquiries into the molecular changes of nerve cells, the chemistry of the human body, the activities of certain bacteri...

THE RISK OF BEING UNINSURED. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 20 June 1914
THE RISK OF BEING UNINSURED. ACCORDING to Charles Lamb, when a Chinaman wants roast pig all he has to do is simply to. set fire to his hut, but we in Australia would require at least a fatted calf or two in addition before even an accidental "burn" might be classed among the luxuries. Indeed, it appears that if aperson elects to take the risk of not insuring, and a tire occurs, doubly serious consequences are entailed. In surance protects in more ways than one, as shown by a case at the Northcote court this week. The insured ones not only get a monetary recompense .pro portionate to loss, but have the free use of all the fire-fighting bodies and appli ances the districtpossesses. Not so the uninsured. These unfortunate individ uals have to suffer the full brunt of loss by fire and water, and are liable to be made to pay very heavy charges, in ad dition, for the use of brigade and appli ances, as illustrated in the case under notice, in which the Metropolitan Fire Brigades Board sued...

EDUCATION OF THE YOUNG. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 20 June 1914
EDUCATION OF THE YOUNG. 1By a Mother. For all purposes of permnlaent in fluence, no period Is like childhood and youth. And a man's youth, for moral improvement, lasts the whole of his allotted lifetime on earth. Some young people grow old too fast for their highest advantage. They think they have finished their education while yet in their teens. And some mothers foolishly grant practical ad mission to the idea. But education is never finished so long as opportunity continues, however early it may com mnence. The whole of this short life may be called the period of youth for purposes of improvement. It is the period that determines the weal or woo that comes after it. And of this brief probation the first half is gen orally decisive of all that follows. 'hl' shape of the tree is that which it took when a twig. "The child is father to the man," simply because the man Is formed in childhood. Old age Is generally the ripe fruit of which childhood and youth are the seed-time and period...

BASEBALL. A GRADE,' Carlton defeated Northcote last Sat urday at the Carlton oval by 6 runs to 1. The winners thoroughly earned their win, their battery being in good form, and their fielding smart and clean. Northcote's battery was weak, nine batsmen being struck out, Crawley and Gibaud formed the Northcote bat tery, and both put up a good game. Begg at second base played a fine game, handling seven plays without error, but otherwise the infield was not up to winning form. To-day's match is against St. Kilda at the Northcote park.
DIFFERENCE IN GOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 20 June 1914
DIFFERENCE IN GOLD, .lost peoplle suppose (says an as sayer) that all gold is alike when re fined; but thils Is not the case, An experienced man can tell at a glance from what part of the world a gold pieces comes, and in some cases from what part of a particular gold district the metal was obtained. The Australlan gold, for instance, is dls tincily redder than the Californian, and this difference in color Is always lpereoptlble, even when the gold Is 1000 line. Again, the gold obtained from the placers is yellower than that which is taken directly from quartz. Why this should be the case is one of the mlysteries of metallurgy, for the pla. eer gold all comes from the veins. The Ural gold is the reddest found any. where. Few people know the real color of gold as it Is seldom seen unless hearv ily alloyed which renders it redder than when pure. The purest coins ever made were the 50 dollar pieces th at used to be colmion in California. ,'heir coinage was abandoned for two reasons fir...
