Human Nature. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 8 October 1914

Human Nature. "I don't believe my husband ha3 ever deceived me in his life," said . the pretty young matron. "How long have you been married? ' asked the bachelor, who was begin ning to get grey around the temples. "Three years next month." "And you have perfect faith in your husband? That's very interesting, I assure you. If I could feel positive that a sweet, beautiful woman could believe in me as you say you believe in your husband, I think I might be tempted to—" "Oh, but I haven't said I believe in my husband, or hare faith in him!"

All the' Difference." The -ministerial chairman of a vil lage school board called at the home ,of a pupil whose absence from school extended to three weeks, and inquired .of the lad's mother the cause. • "Why," she said, "he's past his thirteenth birthday, and me an' his father thinks he's had schoolin' enough."

THE NEW RHUBARB CULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 8 October 1914

THE NEW RHUBARB CULTURE. Where only one or two roots are wanted, it is perhaps the better plan for amateur gardeners to procure them from reliable seedsmen or nur serymen, but when grown on a com mercial basis it is easily raised from seed. Mr. Herbert Rumsey describes what he calls the new rhubarb cul ture thus:— A new method of cultivating rhu barb has come into vogue among the market gardeners in the neighbor hood of Sydney, and a special strain of plant has been developed for the purpose. A winter variety—this is a kind which does not stop its growth during the winter—is used. The ground,. preferably a deep sandy soil, is heavily manured, seed is sown about February or March, in drills about 2ft. 6in. apart, and when the plants come up they are thinned to about 18 to 24 inches apart. Where •water is available, a thorough satura tion should be given every week or 10 -days. With sufficient feeding and ■manure this will yield full crops of immense stalk by about June and through sp...

"That may be; but if you wish, me to sanction your engagement to my daughter, I must ask' you to be a little more specific. At present, all I know is that you are at the Bar. What exactly are your prospects there?" "Prospects," and I leant back in the arm-chair, "are, in essence, nothing more than a state of mind. The word is derived from the Latin prospicio— I look forward; and what I see when I look forward constitutes my pros pects. Now that, of course, varies from day to day. "When I am blessed with a good digestion, bounding pulse, and high spirits, I see a great and glorious future before me. "When my liver is out of order I know I shall never succeed.

"Well, if he knocks a ball 175 yards, is he pretty good?" "Yes, pretty good, son." "Well, father, what if he knocks the ball 250 yards?" "Mighty good. He's mighty good if he can do that, my boy." "Well, now, father, what if he knocks it 275 yards?" "He's awful, awful good, Tommy," replied the fatner, as he once more fastened his eyes on the story of the Indian's downfall. 7 "Well, now, father, what if he knocks the ball 325 yards, what would he be then?" "Probably a liar, son. Now you had better run up and kiss mamma and go to bed." *

LIFE SAVING AT SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 8 October 1914

LIFE SAVING AT SEA. All the fishermen of the East Coast of England know quite well that when once tl.ey lose touch of their boats their boots will pull them down and they will be drowned. "A bro ken boat means nine dead men." That is the common tale of the Whit by fishermen, and they know a good deal about it. The finest swimmer in the world would have no chance of life if he had the ordinary equipment of a fisherman on him. That is the way that the working men face the northern sea from Grimsby to Iceland. Yet each one could be protected "with the most consummate ease if he had close at hand a life-saving jacket Cork is not much good, and life-belts are apt to turn you upside down. The Board of Trade has now recog nised this, and has acaepted the Boddy life-saving jacket, a levitating collar and chest and back protector that keeps man, woman, or child in such a position when dropped into the sea that they will never drown. Possibly, if everyone on the Ti tanic could have slipped su...

TIMING THE ACTION OF THE HEART. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 8 October 1914

TIMING THE ACTION OF THE HEART. At a meeting of the Court of Gov ernors of the London Hospital a few days ago it was stated that the heart department had been placed under ground, owing to the fact that the slightest vibration -would affect the extremely delicate instruments used in recording heart-beats. By certain of these instruments various forms of heart disease had been diagnosed long before they could have been heard by the stetho scope. When the heart beats, it has been found that it gives off minute elec tric currents, and by proper arrange ments these currents are made to cause a fine hair of glass, coated "with silver, to vibrate. These vibrations are made to take place in front of a lens, behind which is a powerful arc lamp, and to throw a shadow on to a sensitised film. When this film is developed, a tracing is obtained caused by the shadow of the hair, and from this shadow valuable inferences can be drawn. The apparatus is connected by wires to some of the beds in the ...

So There! A young gentleman with a very plain face was rather annoyed be cause his view of the stage was ob structed by the hat of a pretty girl who was sitting in front of him in the gallery. Wishing to get a glimpse of the performance, he plucked up courage and, in a nervous voice, ex claimed: "See here, miss, I want to look as well as you." "Oh, do yer?" she replied, in a rich Cockney accent, as she turned around and looked at him square in the eye. "Then you'd better run 'ome and change yer face."

A REMARKABLE SEQUENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 8 October 1914

A REMARKABLE SEQUENCE. A strange fatality seems to be con nected with the office of the Mayor of Uitenhage. Fourteen gentlemen have occupied that position, and thir teen are dead. No ex-Mayor save one has lived for more than a year or so after vacating the civic chair, and the extraordinary thing is that twelve of the fourteen died on a Saturday and were buried on a Sunday. The late Mr. Ward passed away at Sea Point recently, on a Friday, and was there fore the only exception in this re spect. But he, too, was the thir teenth out of the fourteen to be in terred in Uitenhage on a Sunday. This curious fatality rather got on the nerve of the late Mr. T. W. Mills, M.L.A., while Mayor of Uitenhage, and it was his custom to close his game of bridge at midnight on Satur day with the pious remark: "Well, thank God there's another Saturday safely over." He eventually retired from the council, entered Parliament, contracted heart disease, died on a Saturday, and was burled on a Sun day.

"Why, no, John," answered the uncle, "I can't give you that colt. Do you -want a colt so very badly?" _ . "I'd rather have a colt than 'any thing in the world!" "Well, if you want a colt that much you ought to pray for it. When I want a thing very badly I pray for it, and it comes to me." "Honest, uncle? Well, I'll tell you —you give me this colt, and then you pray for another one."

CHARLES ROCK 42 Gladen Street, East Brunswick, for 33 years in the Melbourne Tramway Company, writes this letter (2/4/12), which is of spccial interest to all Rail way and Tramway men, to CLEMENTS TONIC LTD. "In December, 1911,1 caught cold and serious pleurisy. For three days my temperature was 104 degrees. My life was des paired of, but through taking the doctor's advice I live to-day, he advised my wife to get Clements Tonic, as 'THERE WAS LIFE IN THAT MEDICINE.' They were the truest words be ev,er uttered, and I would have been dead only for that grand medi cine. My wife paid 2/3 for the small bottles, had she paid £40 she would have had good value. I have seen a lot of letters about CLEMENTS TONIC in books and papers, but what I find fault with is that every writer has utterly failed to give the proper value of that medicine.
