A WONDERFUL MEMORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 12 September 1913

I I A WONDERFUL MEMORY. George Hailiottle, a laborer at a Northumberland quarry, possesses a memory which retains an Indelible impression or ..every word which ho hears or reads. After once hearing read, or reading himself, half a dozen book pages of any kind • of matter, he can repeat them without omitting a single word. On one occasion (says the "North* Eastern Gazette") a man who knew Harbottle bought a pamphlet of songs from a street singer, and wagered with liim that ho could not, within twenty minutes learn and correctly repeat all tlxe songs-. Harbottle re peated every song without a mistake' In seventeen minutes. The names of all the licensed houses in Glasgow • were read out to him three times, and ho repeated them correctly in tho reverse order of which they were read out. Two men road two differ ent paragraphs from two newspapers simultaneously, and Harbottlo re peated one paragraph correctly and made only two mistakes In the other —a remarkable feat.

RIGHT-HANDED ORATORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 12 September 1913

RIGHT-HANDED ORATORS. Right or left handedness is due to ' the comparative development of the right or left Bide of the train. It has been scientifically demonstrated that in cases whero the right hand and arm' are better developed than the left the left side of the brain ia more developed than the right, or vice ver sa; that is to say, when the left side of the fbraln Is the stronger, the right arm will be stronger, whilst in cases where the.right side of the brain ie the stronger people are usually left- ' handed. I Left-handed people are seldom good orators, for speech Is controlled from j the left side of the brain. As with , them the left side of the brain is weak the ability to make eloquent speeches Is less than in the case of right-hand- | ed people, whose brain iB better de veloped on the left side than on the j right. Not only are left-handed peo ' pie poor orators, but they are seldom good linguists for this reason. | Whero left and right hands can be I , used equally wel...

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 12 September 1913

LADIES' LETTES. By "Irene." Feminine dress at the present mo ment is afousing a great deal of coin-; men^ admiring and otherwise, in vari ous parts o£ the world. Some of the diatribes make funny reading. Curl- . ously enough, it is only in the Eng lish-speaking parte of the world, where false modesty is rife, that there is fault found with the fashions upon / the score of immorality. The more artistic nations- do not look for sug gestion,. and see only the artistic wlien the Bhape of the feminine form, is revealed. In America they are try ing to pass laws to regulate this, that and the other—just how the neck may be cut, how much the skirt opened; md X-ray dresses, as they are term ed, are banned altogether. Who ;la to determine 'what is an X-ray dress is not quite "clear. Can a policeman's discretion or sense be trusted in such things? A leading American maga- " zlne—for it is in Ohio, America, these ailly laws are passed—waxes sarcas tic upon the subject and says: "Every once in a...

FRbM VARIOUS SOURCES { "He shall be of "inanly appearance, shall not .be a miser or fat or jealous, shall not drinlc heavily, or criticise his wife's hats, and he shall-keep hie nos.e outside the kitchen." This is a summary of the qualities which the ideal Japane&e husband ought to pos sess-, according fo a plebiscite of lady readers taken by the Tokio "Rfeview." The qualities which are enumerated suggest that the Japanese wife, in lier demands on her husband, is very like a wife in any other part of the world. Eve Beems to be the same charming, exacting person, whether her skin be black or white or yellow. "To lteep. his nose outside the kitchen" is an act of a'bsinence required of every man —it is woman's declaration of inde pendence in her own special domain. Domestic quarrels, to ibe followed by domestic intrigue, and ultimate di vorce or tragedy,, are stirred by many causes; but the most prolific cause is when the husband asks inquisitorial questions-about the cooking, ...

GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 12 September 1913

GENERAL NEWS. A joke nearly brought about a dis aster, or something like it, at Camden, —Jennie Ochinpa, a fac tory^ girl, laughed so heartily at an other girl's jest that her jaws became dislocated. Not knowing what hau -happened to her, the terrified girl . rushed out of the factory screaming. •The other employees, thinking that an outbreak of fire had occurred, were on the point of making a wild rush for the exits, but the panic was avert in, the nick of time. The girl, whose Immoderate laughter had caust-d all the trouCje, was taken to the local hospital, where her jaws were reset. "All red-haired women are jealous,"' declares Professor C. B. Davenpurt, of the University of .Missouri. "When a red-haired woman has dark blue or violet eyes and dark eyelashes she is good to have for a friend, and baa to have for an enemy. When she has light blue eyes and pale lashes 6he is 'catty.' A curious antipathy is that of red-Jiaired persons of opposite sex for each other. Among thousands of...

WHEAT LANDS. A REMARKABLE INCREASE. AREA UNDER CROP. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 19 September 1913

WHG^LT LANDS. A REMARKABLE INCREASE. • AREA'UNDER CROP. ' Interesting particulars are given by the Government Statist re garding 'the remarkable increase in the area under crop in the State this year. The area sown with wheat dur ing the current season shows an increase of 25 p.er cent and is a maximum in the history of wheat growing in this State. In the season for 1903-4 the acreage under crop for hay and grain was 1,847,813. A fair in crease was apparent in the follow ing season, but last year saw an augmented area under cultivation until the year 1907-8, when there was a falling off in the cultivation. In 1909-10, however, the interest in wheat farming seems to have revived, for the area - under crop jumped from 1;985,006 acres to 2,376,789 acres, and this area gradually increased year by year until tbe area under crop last year was 2,967,292 acres.— This sea son, however, the area under crop —that is the wheat which will be harvested in the coming season— has jumped up to 3,730...

HOW THE SMALL POX PROGRESSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 19 September 1913

HOW THE SMALL POX PRO GRESSES. Like many other infectious maladies, [the symptoms of small pox are manifested in various forms. If the system has imbibed the contagion its onset is pre ceded by a period of incubation, during which the patient may or may not complain. This period is believed to be from a"bout ten to fourteen days. The invasion of the symptoms is sudden and severe, in the form of a |!gor, fol lowed by fever, in whichSthe tem perature rises to 103 or 104, or higher, [notwithstanding that per spiration may be going on. A quick 'pulse is present, together with thrist and [constipation, while intense .headache, accompanied by vomiting and a pain in the back, is amongst the most charac teristic 'of the initial symptoms Occasionally the disease is us hered in by convulsions. These symptoms continue with greater or less intensity throughout two entire days, and during their course there may be occasionally noticed on various parts of the body, especially on the lower parts o...

A REMEDY FOR SMALL POX. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 19 September 1913

A REMEDY FOR SMALL POX. A correspondent writes as fol lows to a city'paper:—Sir,—One of the most precious treasures I have had during the past 34 years is a small pamphlet which L brought with me from England in 1879." It is entitled " How to cure and Prevent Small Pox," by by ^Charles Rose, author of " Small Pox Curable,", etc., and was sold at a penny. I can speak from personal experience, having seen something of the marvell ous benefits wrought by the remedy in the part of Kent, where I resided during a severe epidemic about the year 1877. In those days there were only two or three doctors in the district, and no fever hospitals; so that when small pox attacked the houses— some of them little better than hovels—of the poor, the victims had to remain in their homes and be waited on by members of the family who were not stricken. The poor law officer or inspector, whose duty it was to distribute the weekly dole and look after the pauper class, was the only person in authority who ...
