TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 3 February 1912
TO THE EDITOR. Sir.-Allow me, through your paper, to alli ttention to the improper treat meet of cattle impounded by the -uthori:y of the shire council. They areene!osed in a small yard a few yards square, and kept there for days. 1o persn shound think of feeding cast's in such a small space. When the por hungry things get a bit of food thr~wn into them, the strong oens ru~h fr it and the weak ones ;et k,.o.ked about shamefully. I think it i. about t me this sort of cruelty was put down. The council has a r.uch larger pl4ce where they shulld be kept. I hope this will be seen into at once. It is bld enough for raepayers to have to pay so hleailv for a strayed .beat without getting it rearly killed and not taken -are of.-Yours etc, A RATEPAYEK. Frankston, January 80th, 1912.

A DENIAL. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 3 February 1912
A DENIAL. 0 TIIE EDITOR. Sir,-It was reported in the last issue of your paper by A.C.W. that it must have been my carelessness in not prperly closing the door of street lamps in Somerville, that it was wrenched off its hinges This I emphatically deny. The lamp was lighted and door securely fa-tened on Saturday night, but on going to light that lamp on the following night the outer door had been torn off and the lamp removed, undouhtedly by the hoodlum ele ment, and this is not the first time, as on several occasions thle lamps have been interfered with, and it is a pity that these destroyers of public property could not be made an example of.

MEASURING EYE JUMPS. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 3 February 1912
MEASURING EYE JUMPS. We know that an eye at ordinary wading distance takes in about lin. if a line at a time, and that in read. xg a line of an ordinary book thil !ry makes five or six (more or less. according to the length of the line) !istinet jumps. But how many know what direction the eye takes in mak ug these jlumps ? And, as the move alelits are so very minute and rapid ,ow have they been studied ? A very ingenious means.has been employed .s follows : A beasm of light is thrown umon the corner of tlhe eye under ex amination, and this beam is reflected by the cornea on to a photographic nlate. As the eye moves in reading. tihe reflected beam also moves, and upon developing the plate, which is also kept moving, a zigzag line is outnd. A study of such photograph Ic tracings shows that the eyes, in turning back to pick up the next line have some dinmculty in so doing. The longer the line of print the greater Ihe effort. and for this reason we nma, conclude that a narrow line is le...

APPLAUSE HEARD 180 MILES. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 3 February 1912
APPLAUSE HEARD 180 MILES. One hundred and eighty, miles away. resounded the thunderous applause accorded a concert given in the Pen sacola Navy Yard. It was habhd. clapping by wireless. The large wireless transmitter station is locnted near the bandstand and at the end of a selection by the navy hand, the De Forest operators opened wide the large spark gap as well as the doors of the sound-proof spark mulmler, and then depressing the Morse key, sent forth a succes sion of long, loud dashes heard for streets. This "low frequency" spark and its rattle, following upon. the last notes of the music, resembled an outburst of applause from the vast concourse of clapping hands, but sevenfold louder than any ever heard before. The bandmaster, startled, amused, and impressed, responded with the one encore of the evening. As it transpired afterwards, the operator at the station at New Or leans heard this electrical enthusiasm precisely when it was given, 180I miles. away. One of the greatost m...
New State School System [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 3 February 1912
New State School System The State schools were re opened on 22nd inst., after the Christmas vacation. The provisions of the revised programme of instruction came into operation at once. The law requires all children to attend school between 6 and 14 years of age, unless when a pupil obtains a merit certificate ; then he may leave school at 13 years of age. Instead of having six grades or classes as heretofore, there will be eight grades, corresponding roughly with every year of school life. Teachers have, however, been ad vised, Mr F. Tate, the director, ex plains, not to keep back children eligible for promotion. Parents will, he remarked, be able to judge the progress a child is making at school by his age. If, for instance, a child of 11 or 12 years were in the fourth grade, it would be evi dent that he was not making normal progress ; but if a pupil of 8 or 9 years were in the same grade, his progress would be above normal.
