HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 2 November 1917
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. A little lemon-juice added to the water in which the face is washed will quickly remove sunburn. If a knife is placed under a tumbler or glass dish, boiling milk or water can be put in without breaking the glass. Never leave a spoon in anything re quired to boil quickly: the spoon con ducts heat away from the liquid. When stewing meat. always covr it with boiling water. This makes the meat more tender and far more nour ishing. After washing lamp chimneys, pol ish them with dry salt. This gives the glass a brilliant shine and pre vents it from cracking. -Never warm up a dish containing niushrooms. They develop Injurious properties, and are apt to be harmful Only cook what will be eaten at a meal. Do not hang a mirror whore the sun's rays can fall upon it The light and heat injure the quicksilver at the back, and make the glass dull. and cloudy. Breadcrumbs should be saved: and placed on a clean piece of paper and put to brown in the oven. Thea roll them until quite t...

THE WONDERFUL STORY OF ISLAM. CAN ITS GREATNESS REVIVE? [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 9 November 1917
THE WONDERFUL STORY OF ISLAM. CAN ITS GREATNESS REVIVE? That protion of Asia which is the cradle of the race that was once the gafden of the worli, is not without interest at the present moment when Germany seeks to impress her econ omic suzerainty on it, as Mr. Samuel P. Orth points out in a recent paper Swhich we quote. In antiquity Asia Minor and por tions of the Southern Mediterranean shore were the most populous coun tries in the world. Mesopotamia, through a wonderfully effective sys tem of irrigating canals, was, until the advent of the Tartar horde, the richest of these countries. Arts and science flourished with trade and a.ri cultre, and Bagdad was reputed to have a population of 2.000,000. With the ruin that characterised the con quests of the nomad Tartars these countries were despoiled of their wealth, and for over five centuries, their fields, their mines, and their forests have lain fallow, while Europe throbbed with new life. SBut in the background lays a letent powe...
PAINTING IRON SURFACES. ONE COAT BETTER THAN MORE. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 9 November 1917
PAINTING IRON SURFACES. ONE COAT BETTER-THAN .MORE. Some recent German experiments have a most important bearing on our treatment of explosive shells, and their aiplication to ordinary indus tXial life is obvious. We understand t that the practice is to give shells two i coats of paint.. Now the German ex perimentalita polished four iron plates and painted them-the first with one coat, the second with two. the third with three, and the fourth with four. The plates were then ex posed to stenam for oje day. The paint was disolved off and the follow ing distinct results noted : - The iron under the single coat was bright all over, that under two coats was: partly rusted, that under three coats rusted still" more, while the iron under the four coats was cover ed with rust. This experiment shows I that several coats of paint do not protect as well as one coat. The explanation of this is that sub- i sequent coath of paint or varnish tend to dissolve part of the previous ceoat. This has th...

DOGS AND DISEASE. A HOME AND FARM DANGER. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 9 November 1917
DOGS AND DISEASE. A HOME AND FARM DANGER. The part that the dog plays as a carrier of diseases to animals has beer. recognised only recently. The parasite which causes gid, or sturdy, in sheep somewhat resembles the by datid worm (tapeworm). A dog al lowed to eat the brain of a giddy sheep may swallow this parasite and later distribute the eggs of the re sulting tapeworm over the pasture. Sheep while grazing swallow the eggs with the grass which they eat. In the case 'of sheep-dogs it is im portant to administer vermifuges of ten enough to keep them free of these worms. In the case of sheep measles, the bladder worm in the meat, typical of this disease, is swal lowed by the dog, and again the tapeworm eggs are passed by the dog to grass or water, and there are Seaten by sheep. Of the external parasites which dogs ,may carry to animals, fleas and the ] various kinds of ticks are trouble some and dangerous. The remedy is clear. The owner must keep his dog clean, not merely for the com...

VIOLIN ALL OF METAL. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 9 November 1917
VIOLIN ALL OF METAL. A violin constructed throughout of metal, played with a bow of wire, is a novelty devised by Joseph Proulx, an American. The instrument has a hack of plate steel, a front of brass, and sides of Russian iron. It is fine ly finiihel and polished, and has a clear, accurate tone without any sign of scratch such as is found in many violins. Mr. Pronix is a ma chinist by trade. While working on brass, he was seized with the idea of making a metal violin, and has been working on his idea ever since, with his result. The violin has been shown to many players, and has been pro nounced to be practically perfect so far as quality of tone is concerned.

WHEN THE DEAF HEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 9 November 1917
WHEN THE DEAF HEAR. It has been discovered that persons afflicted with certain forms of deaf ness can hear perfectly in the midst Iof a tumult. A locomotive engineer was found to be very deaf. and. al though he protested that he could hear perfectly well while on his en gine, he was suspended from duty. i Some time afterwards he applied for reinstatement, again urging the fact of his perfect hearing while on duty. Finally, the physician rode with him upon a locomotive and put him to every possible test. To the doctor's surprise he found that the man was not only able to hear ordinary words but also to distinguish whispers and movements that were inaudible to his companion.
