BUSINESS COURTSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 18 April 1914
BUSINESS COURTSHIP, An amusing case was once decided in a Frankfort police court, It alp pears that a cook, no longer quite young, was courted by a tailor some. what younger than she, On Sun days, and occasionally during the week, the gallant lover was in the habit of taking his lady for extended promenades and visits to restaurants, where the latter always paid the ex penses. She also provided him re. gularly with his supper. Presently, however, the awful truth I was brought home to the cook that she was not the only friend on whom the man of the scissors and the need lc lavished his affections. Nothing loth, she went to the nearest police court, suing the faithless one for all the expenses of the clandestine meals provided by her, and all the money spent when "walking out" with hh?nm The tailor however was once galI i1l L uO IIIUIL IU r net.

Meeting the Difficulty. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 18 April 1914
Meeting the Difficulty. A good story is told of a worthy Quaker who lived in a country town. The friend was rich and bolnevolent, and his means were put in frequent requisition for purposes of local char ity or usefulness. The townapople wanted to rebuild their parish church and a committee was appointed to raise funds. It was agreed that the Quaker could not be asked to sub scribe towards an object so contrary to his principles; but then, on the other hand, so true a friend to the town might take it amiss if he were not at least consulted on It matter of such general interest. So one of thoir number went and explained to him their project the old church was to be removed, and such and such stops taken towards the construction cf a now one, "Theo wast right," said the Quak, or, "in supposing that mly principles would not allow meo to assist in buill ing a church. But dilst thee not say something about pulling down a church? Theo mayst lint moy name down for a hundred pounds to pull ...

What Causes Seasickness? A medical scientist havuing observed that deoa mutes never sutfer from sea sickncss, the ilquiry was naturally sug. gostod-Why this immnunity? Afler varied and exhaustive experimentis, it was decided that the absence of son. 4lbillt.y in the auditory nerve was the occasion of the entire freedom of deaf mutes from seasickness, He says: "In deaf mutes, there Is absolute deafness, or very great reduction in hearing, dea ilendoent upon the destruction or seorl ons impairment of the function of the peripheral distribution or sound 1or ceptive elements of the auditory nerve, in which process the semi-circular can. als nre included, Both physiological experiment and pathological observae tion point to that part of the inner ear known as the semliclrcular canals as axerc!slug a controlling Influence over the maintenance of tile erect posture nd tihe sense of equillbrium, As those functions are frequently disturbed on shipboard by the rapidly changnlug mo tion of the...
The Influence of Hunger. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 18 April 1914
The Influence of Hunger. A romarkablo oxposition of the influ. ence of hunger on mental activity has Just been formulated by M. Lassignar, die, who disousses the mental condl. tions of a person deprived of nourish. ment wholly or partially. One of the writer's friends, Dr. Malre, who was among the victims of the shipwreck of the French ship .Ville de St, Niz. alre, gives a' luminous description of the delirium which he and his com, pan Ions suffered in consequence of hunger, The deductions to which Dr. Mairo's evidence leads all converge upon the mind; if the deprivation does not last too long, and if, especially, it is voluntary and habitual, the result is manifest activity of the mind, and particularly of the imagination. If the deprivation be protracted, a change in the character and deport. luent of the person takes place, which is expressed by a peculiar ex:.tabil. '.y, by extraordinary selfiahness, and oy cruelty even. At the same time un equivocal signs of mental derange. men...
