LUMINOSITIES. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 31 July 1914
LUMINOSITIES. ! There are always times when we wish we could see something, which the darkness hides. The angler gives up because he cannot- see his float ; , the cricketer because he cannot see the ball. Luminous paint solves all these, and scores of other difficulties. And : all that is required is to add a small quantity of calcium sulphide to ordinary white paint. Foats. balls. t keyholes, etc., then become visible. | A watch light for use at ni^ht avoi'ding the striking 0£ a match can be made by putting a small piece of phosphorus into a loug glass phial, and then filling it one-third ; full with hot oil. Cork it tigiitly, and, when light is needed, uncork for i a mcmemt and close again. The top part of the phial will be limrmoua, land y,ou can see the time.
ARE YOU LEFT-HANDED? [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 31 July 1914
ARB YOU LEFT-HANDED ? i Why, don't you make more use o! your left hand ? It has been estimated that 97 per cent, of the English-speaking people are right-handed when ther grow up. : Seventeen out of every hundred are born right-lianded, but the remaining eighty-three are born without any in clination to use one hand more than the other, and, therefore, become : right-handed owing to influences brought to be.ar on them during their childhood days. ; It is impossible to calculate how much men lose by neglecting, their left hands. Formerly - in primitive times, that is to say-everyone was ambidextrous : and the sooner people become ambidextrous again thj> bet ter. ! In Japan. for many years past, soldiers and schoolboys nave been taught to use both hands. And this j wise example is now being followed : in Germany.
WEALTH FROM SAWDUST. GAS AND BREAD MADE FROM IT [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 31 July 1914
! WEALTH FROM SAWDUST. ? GAS AND BREAD MADE FEOM IT American, and Canadian sawmills have discovered that the sawdust which they have been perplexed how to rid themselves of as a worthless encumbrance is worth at least £8 per ton. In Baltimore a chemist has perfected a process of extract ing gas from sawdust, adequate enough to supply a city like Ot tawa with light nnd heat at 5d. per 1,000 feet. This is thought to portend that around the great saw mills, which have been emptying their dust into the Ottawa River, a variety of new industries subsist ing on it are likely to grow up. In Austria, where everything in the shape of fuel is being carefully searchcd for, sawdust is impreg nated with a mixture of tarry sub stances and heated to the proper temperature ; it is then passed over a plate of iron heated by stoam, from which a screw-conveyer takes it to a press, where it is com pressed into briquettes of tho re quired oizo. The press turns out i about nineteen every mimite, weigh ing...

A couple of weeks elapsed ; ineu one afternoon Fitzpatrick went up to the Hall and told Hetberington that it was about time his daugh ter was told ha wished to marry her. "You can say that I've more money than I gare people the im pression of having - quite a decent little fortune," said the doctor, with a slight sneer, as he left the room ; and Josh, who bated to feel that he was in any man's power, felt that he would like to kill him, but as there was no alternative, he decided to speak to Pat that evening. Accordingly, after dinner, wfien he entered the drawing room, he was glad to find his wife was Dot there ; but knowing she might return any minute, he told Patricia i-hat he wished to speak to her in the li brary.

CHAPTER XIII. A CASE OF BARTER. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 31 July 1914
CHAPTER XIII. A CASE OF BARTER. Joshua Hetherington sat quite . still, looking, with blanched face at the man opposite to him, whose ut terance had come like an avalanche, bringing, that past, which had seem- . ed so far away, so securely buried, back to him, and revealing in all its baldness the crime he had commit ted. j "I know all about the blue dia monds," repeated Fitzpatrick. | For a moment longer there- was j silence, the two men sat and looked i at each other, and as he gazed at his companion Hetherington realised that he was a man whose silence coukl be bought, and the thought braced him up, so that his voice never faltered as he said : ""What do you kmow about the blue diamonds ?" Fitzpatrick looked at him admir ingly. He admired pluck, and this man was showing it in the face of a great danger. Yes, he was showing pluck and a business capacity. One thing was certain-Mr. Hetherington did not mean to give himself awav, and he would have to be careful or he would be outwitte...

Dr. Fitzpatrick had dineS, aad he was seated over the fire enjoying a pipe. All his ill-temper had vanished; a good dinner had made him look more hopefully on his chances of win ning Meg for his own. Later he would have to visit a patient, who was seriously ill ; but this interval was his own, in which to dream of the girl he loved, and it was with some annoyance he turned his head when there was a tap on the door, and the parlourmaid informed him that Miss Morris wished to see him. But the girl had scarcely uttered the words when Therese Morris pushed past her into the room, in time to hear Mtzpatrick's muttered "Con- j found her !" Then he recovered him self, and advancing held out his hand, saying : I "Good evening, Miss Morris. Will you sit here ?" and he drew a low chair forward. "I d...

"It comes to me again and again. It is this.: I dream I| am walking about somewhere in some plain or desert, aiid I suddenly encounter the agitated ghost of Sir Isaac New ton. . He approaches me, his eyes almost starting out of his head ; he tells me who he is, and how ig norant he is of all that lias hap pened in the world of science since he left. " 'Now/ he says, 'I want you "to tell me in a few words-for 1 have only a quarter- of an hour left-all that has happened to the race ; the progress. How is it ? I know what it was when I left it.

Mask of Death. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 7 August 1914
Mask of Death. i A curious mask of death was de scribed by Captain Nugent before the .Royal Geographical Society, when he gave some of his exper iences as a member of the Anglo German Commission Which marked the boundaries of Nigeria and the Cameroons. Among the numerous " ju-jus" found in the deserted huts was a grotesque mask, which was appa rently kept to frighten the women. Any women seeing it must die at once. The local witch-doctor put on -the mask and ran about the hills until'he met a likely-looking victim, who was then killed. Describing, one tribe ©r hill-top pagans, Captain Nugent said : "The villages consist of little bee hive-shaped huts of mud or grass, perched on apparently inaccessible heights or cunningly hidden away in mazes of dense Tropical vege tation. The inhabitants bear a. great resemblance to monkeys, be ing small in stature, .but extraordi narily active. The steepest and most difficult. ascent over rocks and ravines is to them as easy as a straight,/ broad,...
