Food Reform. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 10 July 1914
Food. Reform. Tho normal, healthy man quite rightly does not think much about what ho cats so long as it tastes fairly good and there is plenty of it. Thero are reasons, however, why even fie should tak$ an Interest in tho question of diet reform-a question which has become so acuto of Into years. Tho gront movement of scientific research and social study havo both made perfectly clear the fact that the majority of tho peoplo are not as healthy and as efficient as they might be, ami one of the root causes of this is that they do not obtain sufficient food, or that they do not obtain tho right kind of food. Tho Inst statement applies not only to the poorer classes, but also, as has been fully shown by Chittenden, JTindhedc, and others in recent years the classes with ample means.

Worth Remembering. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 10 July 1914
Worth Remembering. 1 Many of the little problems which j wc encounter in daily HCo may bo overcome if we but give them a moment's serious thought. And once we discover a method of doiug n thing neatly or . of saving labour, wo should remember just how wo did it, for the experience will prove useful to us again some day. Probably many of our readers; have at some time met with a stubborn glass stopper which ab solutely refused to leave the neck: of the bottle. Tapping the stopper with something hard is not a. method to be recommended-it is often accompanied with danger to the neck of tho'"bottle. The best melfhod iis to warm the neck and make it expand around the stopper, when the lntter may be easily removed. All that is necessary is to take a stout piece of string, the coar ser the better; give it a turn around the neck, as shown in Fig. 1, and saw hack and forth a minute or two. If it Js a small bottle grip It tie tween tho knees and work _ with both hands, but if it is a large bo...
Cause of Earthquakes. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 10 July 1914
-Cause of Earthquakes. I TJio prevalent idoa Ihnt earth ! quakes aro chiefly caused by vol* eanic eruptions or explosions Is now held by scientists to be wrong. Professor Milne-one of our greatest authorities on tlm subject-nays : " While admitting a few small earth quakes to be volcanic in their ori gin, wo recognise the majority of these dist urbances as the result of a sudden fracturing of the rocky crust under the influence of bendinp." This* bending1 is brought, about- by the gradual contraction of the earth, which is held to be the chief cause of mountain building. The Himalayas-tho highest range of mountains in the world-are of comparatively recent geologic for mation, and the same forces which found these tremendous folds are, no doubt, responsible for the re ccnt earthquake. Japan Is a country which is con tununlly shaken-by earthquakes, and, although there arc a largo number of volcanoes in tho country, they themselves are responsible for but a small proportion of the trem...

Then asked ; un awed freshman : "And where did you draw, it, sir "Where did I draw it ?" said tho professor. "Oh, in a raffle." The discussion between the two friends had become hented.

Fancy Dress Ball. A GREAT SUCCESS. On Wednesday night, in the institute hall, a fancy dress ball was held. It is some half dozen years since a similar gathering was held locally, and doubt was expressed in some quarters aa to the wis dom of attempting to raise money in this manner. However, when Wednesday came, the pessimists w#re discomfited. Not only was tho attendance of dancers excellent, but many onlookers also paid a shilling each for the privilege of viewing the dancing from tho stage. Mr J B Steel had charge of the secretarial duties, and with Mr T Morecroft and Misses F/aser and Barclay was responsible for the organising work. They are to be congratulated on the successful outcome of their efforts. From the stage the dancers made a picturesque show, and amongst the cos tumes worn were the following : Sailor set-Messrs W Saunderj, E Hauaer, F Hayes, J liedley, Mi 3 W Saunders, and Misses M Fabry, R Goudg and Iris Hall.

Taking a half-sovereign from her purse she wrapped tho coin in a piece of paper, on which she wrote the exhortation, "Never say die." When tho maid delivered the gift to the man he thanked her, looked up at the house, and walked away. Next dny ho called and asked to see tho mistress. The maid was a little dubious. "It's the poor man you gave tho half-sovereign to, ma'am, and ho won't toll me what he wants." "Is ho sober ?" asked the lady. "Ves, ma'am," "Then show him in." When tho man entered tho draw ing-room ho promptly placed five pounds on tho table, remarking, "There you are, lady. It won right enough at nino to one, and you was tho only porson in tho roail what backed it."
