Strangled by an Airship. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 19 June 1914
Strangled by an Airship. O)ne of the strangest of the many fatalities which accompanied the conquest of the air in Germany oc curred on March 5, 1912, and re sulted in the tragic death of the foreman of the 1'arseval 'advertise mentr" airship. The airship, which had made itself familiar to Berlin inhablitants dur ing the past year through its night ly flights for the display of illumi nated advertisements, had just fin ished a cruise, and had landed with accustomed ease before the shed on the Johannisthal F'lying Grounds, near Berlin. A landing squad, commanded by Bailooonmaster Nobers, was about to guide the nose of tho airship into the shed when a sudden gust of wind caught the machine squarely amidships, flinging het around and upward so violent ly that the men~ who had been hold ing the vessel down with ropes were lifted off the grounid. T'he meun hadl to let go the ropes, in order not to be dragged away; but the balloononaster held fast. In a moment he was 600ft. aloft, with th...
Fair-Haired Flirts. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 19 June 1914
Fair-Haired Flirts. "Ninety of every hundred respond ents in divorce cases are blondes," said a celebrated American lawyer, Mr. tlerman IL. lioth, recently.. "Blondes are vain. Blondes are fic kle. Blondes love no one well but themselves. Blondes invite flirtation and challenge insult. Blondes bear the trade-mark of the coquette. "They say, in effect, 'Catch me I am easily caught.' A blonde at tracts instant attention because she bears the trade-mark of the flirt. I1er golden hair is a challemge. She is the trouble-maker of the world." Mr. George Hiobinson, another di vorce specialist, adds his quota to the indictment of the bright-haired woman. "In the first analysis of a man's emotions," he writes, "even though the man be a fool, he wants a woman who is true, and the bru nette is nothing if not faithful. But it takes a man to win a bru nette. He must put up a fight for her, for she has a mind and will of her own, and a brain superior to that of the blonde. A judge of the United St...

Colouring Copper. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 19 June 1914
Colouring Copper. Copper -and brass lend themselves readily to'a 'colouring process ani may be worked to all shades imagin able, excepting the lighter shades, which are :iost on a copper surface, as that I nietal cannot be given a tint lighter t;ha:ui its natural colour, says a 'correspondent of Sheet Metal Shop. :Zinc colours fairly well sometimes, ;.through a narrow range, while tin- is a hard metal to handle as regards oxide colours. SCopper can be carried through the entire range of shades, from a very light copper colour to the darkest brown, or even black, by merely oxidising the surface of the metal. Make a paste of iron oxide and graphite, With wood alcohol or with plain water, and apply this to the article, which is then heated inan oven or. over a gas flame.

A Dangerous Gyroscope.

THE MOSQUITO EVIL. TURNING THE INSECTS TO PROFIT. Employing herds of bats to de stroy mosquitoes isthe newest pro cedure in the campaign against ma laria. It has been put into effect in parts of Texas by Dr. Charles A. Z. Campbell, who recently colm mnunicated an interesting report upon it to the international 'nsti tute of Agriculture in Rome. I)r. Campbell observed that the hat's favourite food is mosquitoes, anrd that he needs a large number of themic to keep him in good condition. Tic also inhabits the caves in which the insects take shelter in the day time, and he is never bitten by them. By repeating this .observation sev eral days running, and making careful count of the undigested re mains of mosquitoes, Dr. Campbell calci'lated that each bat ate on an average 500 mosquitoes a day. Now, thought he, an army of a few thou sand bats would be a great assist ance in the war against mosquitoes. lie considered how squadrons of bats might be gathered together into one badly infested...

MUSIC AND LABOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 19 June 1914
MUSIC AND LABOUR. ------+----- An interesting development in con nectin with the loud-speaking tele phone is its use for distributing music during working hours in fac tories, warehouses, and1 other institu tions where 111men are engaged in work of a monlotonous character. It has lon:g been knlown that work requiring muechlanical skill without the necessity of mental concentra tion can be promotetd by supplying the workers with some kind of plea sant amusement that. will not take the attention from the work, and the loud-speaking telephone ap pears to make this possible on a scale not hitherto thought of. To ensure a Yorkshire pudding always being light, it is a good plan to add a tablespoonful of cold water to the batter just before plac ing it in the oven,

The Province of Government. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 19 June 1914
The Province of Government 0 In one of the works under tthe nom de plume of "George Elliott,"' that talented writor makes one of her cha racters ascribe quite an awe to the word "Government," and even people of average intelligence, who consti tuto the mass, of humanity, the term "Government" has a mysterious im port. We all feel, or appear- to feel. what. Government is-we all intuitive ly recognise tha~t it is a certain idea of control by the oimmnity by cer tain representative institutions, exC pressing its directions or its authority by certain executive official acts. 3Bas tiat, that celebratled French econom ist., writes in this way in one of his essays: 'I wish someone would offer a prize for a good simple and intelli gent detfilition of the word-govern. ment. What an immense service it would confer on society. The Govern ment! What is it? w ihere is it? wha\t does it do? what ought it to do? All we know is, that it is a mysterious ptersonage, and assuredly it is the most soli...
WHY WOMEN SHOULDN'T FLY. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 19 June 1914
WHY WOMEN SHOULDN'T FLY. ------ ----- (Bly B. C. BUCKS, THIE UPSIDEh DOWN AVIATOIl) Flying is a mann's business, and :a woman hasn't the right typ:e of mind to engage in it successfully. That is the chief reason hy 1I don't approve of girls becoming aviators. On more than one occasion when I have-been up in the air with a lady passenger, the machine has side-slip ped or struck an air-pocket, and though I won't say we have been within an inch of death, we have certainly been in great danger. These things happen to the best airman, and cannot be avoided. Having righted the machine, and descended to earth, the pilot steps out with nerves all tingling, and he offers a silent prayer for his lucky escape. The lady passenger jumps out, her face wreathed in smiles, and gushingly remarks upon the aw fully topping trip she has made, and what a funny little turn the machine took half a minute ago. She has never realised that her very life hung upon a thread, and only the pilot's coolness and e...

A Remarkable Duel. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 19 June 1914
A Remarkable Duel. -----t--* There is always something weirdly fascinating in the accounts of des perate struggles to the death be tween duellists, when often chance, and not skill, settled the encounter. One such case was that in which V'illeneuve, a noted duellist of France, insulted the sister of a young Englishman named Talbot;, who thereupon struck him. As a consequence a duel was fought on March 5, 1805. The conditions that there should be two pistols-one loaded, the other not.. They were to be put into a handkerchief and drawn out by chance by . the parties, who were afterwards to take their stand at a distance of only one pace from each other. The first choice fell to the lot of the Frenchman, who endea voured to choose the heaviest ; the other was given to Talbot. They took their respective grounds, and so close that the muzzle of each man's pistol touched his ad versary. When both combatanta were ready the seconds advanced and took a lst farewell. Talbot shook his friends'...
Testing Milk on the Farm. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 19 June 1914
Testing Milk on the Farm. 1 To illustrate how a test is made, let it be supposed that a man has a dairy of ten cows, and suspects that four of the animals are "robbers," and wishes to find out what they are giving in money value. The es sentials needed for carrying out the test are a centrifugal machine re volving at a high speed whereby the bottle containing the milk can be whirled, and a few simnple pieces of glassware. The cost of the en tire outfit, large enough for a ten cow dairy, will be about £2. There are seven makes of machines, all hay ing their good points. In the long run, however, the best machine will be the simplest, and the same may be said of the glassware., Tlest bot tles are needed for both. new and skim milk and cream, and it will be well to have three of each of these kinds on hand. Correct results will depend upon having a good sample. Tn order to get such a sample of any kind of milk or cream- suitable precautions must be taken; as the fat globuleE rise rapid...
