WEALTH FROM SAWDUST. Gas and Bread Made From it. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 8 May 1914

WEALTH FROM SAWDUST. Gas and Bread Made From It. I American and Canadian sawmills have discovered that tho sawdust which they have been perplexed how to rid thomselvea of as a worthless encumbrance Is worth at least £8 por ton. In Baltimore a chemist has perfected a process of extracting gas! from sawdust, adequate enough to supply a city like Ottawa with light j and heat at Gd. per 1000ft. This Is thought to portend that around the .great sawmills, which have been emp tying their dust into the Ottawa Ulver, a variety of new Industries subsisting on it are likely to grow up. In Austria, where everything in the shape of fuel is being carefully search ed for, sawdust is impregnated with a mixture of tarry substances and heated to tho proper temperature; it is then passed over a plate of iron heated by steam, from which a screw conveyor takes it to a press, where it is compressed into briquettes of the required size. The press turns out about nineteen every minute, weigh ing two-fifths...

WHEN YOU NEED A GOOD REST. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 8 May 1914

WHEN YOU NEED A GOOD REST. By a Hospital Nurse. Ordinary Bitting In a chair or lying on the sofa are not by any means the most restful positions you can adopt, ror, though they ease certain parts of , the. body, they leave others just as I strained and tired as ever. Perhaps you may not know the val ue of putting your feet up as high as they will comfortably go. It is not elegant, I know, to sit with your feet on the table or the mantelpiece, but it Is most restful and good for you, so you may just as well do it when you are alone. A doctor once told me that he was constantly impressing this "feet-up" ! treatment 011 girls whose work made it ncccssary for them to stand about a great deal—shop assistants, teach ers, and so on. "Get your feet up as hl^h as your head whenever you pos sibly can," he ordered, rlis patients used to think this very strange at llrst, but they quickly realised what •1 wonderful relief it gave to aching feet and tired legs. Another very "comfy," though not ex...

Suppose that a young man of excellent habits and Increasing income—a young man who believed himself fully capable of mak ing a woman happy—were to appear beforo a young woman who had eyes of rare and radiant lustre and hair oi the texture and glory of spun gold, whose lips were more perfect than Hogarth's line of beauty, \vhos<? cheeks held a tint that put to shame the magnificent pink of the rone potalr-a young woman whose culturo and charm easily placed her immea surably above all other women in the world—and ho were to ask this young woman' if she would " "Oh, Mr. Blaclcstone!" she whisper ed, sinking into his arms.

Polite Melbourne. It was at ft public-house in Mel bourne, where an old lady asked for a quartern of gin in a bottle. "Wo have three kinds, ma'am," said one of the grinning barmen. "We . hn.ve oyxgen, hydrogen, and dry gin. Which will you take?" "Dry gin," replied the old lady se verely. When Bhe was served she said: "I was not aware your master kept three asses before, but I notice that he does. "Where?" asked the surprised bar man. "Why, there," she said, pointing to the other two barmen. "There is Mr. Compass, Mr. Thomas, and—let me se ■), they call you 'Jack,' don't they?" "Yes," replied the barman. "Then," she said, as she politely bowed herself out, "good-night, Jack ass!" A dispute had long existed in a gentleman's family between the cook and the coachman, about bringing the cream from the farm for breakfast.

RED BOTTLES FOR MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 8 May 1914

RED BOTTLES FOR MILK. It is vye'.i known that colors have dlffererf. effects upon health. Some colors may soothe—green, for in stance—and others, like yellow, do .the very opposite. The most remarkable of all colors, however, is red, which is noted for its healing qualities. Red has always ■been a color that has "made itself felt," as the saying goes. Since good ness knows when, the Chinese have dressed those who are suffering from smallpox in carmine-colored clothes, and the people of Tongkin actually paint any children who catch measles red. Nor does China stand alone in this rcspect. The Spaniards make a point not only of attiring victims of measles in a red "shirt," but' also of feeding them with red syrup. Sensitive children should have their nursery walls covered with pa per in which the muin color is orange, while red light is most helpful in some cases of skin disease. Red is not only good for human be ings, but it also acts as a preservative or milk. The people of Holland (...

THE MALIGNED COMET. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 8 May 1914

THE MALIGNED COMET. On January 14, 1742, there passed away one of the greatest of our astron omers, in the person of Edmund Hal ley, who worked- up to the end of his long life. nis works were many, but the most notable was his great dis covery about the comet that bears his name. Until his time comets were supposed to be auguries of great good or evil, but chiefly the latter, and many persons lived in the greatest terror of them. Milton, for instance, speaks of the "comet pouring from his horrid head pestilence and war," and, indeed, they were commonly supposed to presage a terrible war, at least. One of them appeared in the fif teenth century, and was solemn ly cursed in a Papal Bull; but this did not affect the- comet, which re appearerd seventy-fiv > years later, and it was this appearance which in duced Charles V., Emperor of Ger many and King of Spain, to resign both crowns. But it came once more at the 'beginning of the Thirty .Years' "War, and Evelyn accused it' of "work i...
