WHERE THE EYE IS DECEIVED. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 2 October 1914
WHERE THE EYE IS DECEIVED. A curious optical illusion is some times seen as a motor-car passes, the wheels of the moving vehicle appear ing for an instant to stop or even turn backward. In an investigation re ported to the Royal Society, Professor A. Mallock mounted a cardboard disc with spokes on a flywheel, and when this was revolved so rapidly that the spokes could not he seen or easily followed by the eye, and a slight me chanical shock of almost any kind was given the observer, the spokes appeared almost stationary for a frac tion of a second. Shocks having this effect -were given in many ways, such as in the contact of the feet with the ground as in walking, by tapping the head or body, or even by rapidly blinking the eyes. It was proved that the appearances depend on the speed of rotation, the brightness of illumin ation, and to some degree on the na ture of the shock. The explanation was offered that the shock produces a momentary loss or variation .of sen sation. This varia...

AH, THE POWER OF A SINGLE FACE. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 2 October 1914
AH, THE POWER OF A SINGLE FACE. ... Mr.- Koon Kan was:in a greatly per turbed state of mind. • He was running lor a train and feared he was late. In an agony of suspense and mental anguish, he labored on with what speed he might while burdened down with heavy, despair. While he was thus suffering and making his suffering most noticeable to the casual observer, he suddenly saw a face—a placid, common face; but it bore £ message of courage and hope for him.' " It made him ashamed, instantly,, that he was perturbed or an guished in spirit over so small a thing as the prospect of missing a train. His features relaxed; his mouth shut like a steel trap whose spring has sud denly been released. Calm entered his spirit; his pace slackened. The face he had seen was that of the station clock, and it told him he had ten minutes in which to find liis seat in his train.

'It's awfully good of you, Mr. Gai leld. I'm sure Mme. Berringer would 'all in with your suggestion wllllng y." "But liow are ye going to keep h jv from singing?" queried Garfield, lugu briously. "You see, the poor old thin,-; thinks she's quite a star still. That's the worst of it. She'll want to sing." "Leave that to me," said Mrs. Mid dletoii. consolingly. "I'll tell her that her voice won't stand the strain two nights running, and that you have pro raised to find singers if she will kind ly consent to accompany the song;*. Is that what you want?" "Tlie very thing," said Garfield. "I can get lots of singers, and I've no doubt Paget will recite—won't you, Paget?" That young man checked his stride towards the open door, the bright sun shine and the lure of the tennis courts, to learn the meaning of this suddeii question. "Won't 1 what?" he saiu. "Recite at a concert I am getting up' to-night for the benefit of Mme. Derringer," said Garfield. "Benefit be hanged!" said Paget. "I had ...

Dr A.rgyle says that no army that has ever yet taken the field knew how to use the rifle as it should be used. The railway record on Friday was the transport of 4000 troops, 50,000 sightseers, and ordinary traffic, all on time. From 100 to 150 trucks of stock, and 10,000 head by road, pass through Albury daily, seeking for pasture in Victoria. The Price of Goods Board in Victoria has fixed the price of wheat 4s 9d, flour £10 10s, bread 7d per 41b loaf. In London the price of meat fluctuates as much as 2%d per lb. in a day under the operations of the Beef Trust.

There was quite a record crowd in the drawing-room for Mme. Berrinu er's recital. She had kept to her room ever since her arrival, and nobody greatly wondered at this, for seeing that a large proportion of her prospec tive audience were not on the planet when she was an operatic star ot the first magnitude, it was generally con ceded that she must be very old and frail. Indeed, Morley Paget had creat ed roars of laughter among his fellow guests by describing, in his best comic style, her arrival on the scene, ami had poked endless fun at her knight alarms, Garfield. So the audience was fairly well prepared for the apparition. Even so, an ill-suppressed titter went round the great drawing-room as Mme. Berringer came through the door be hind the platform and stood among the nalms and flowers, bowing and curtsy ing. But she could play. Oh, yes, when she removed her gloves her white hands moved very sweetly over the keys. Garfield and Paget sat right oppo site the player, and the former...

II. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 2 October 1914
II. • If a thunderbolt had fallen at the feet of the two young men, Morley Pa^ et and Sidney Garfield, they could not have been more surprised, although, probably, they would have been more hurt. "Gone!" they exclaimed, in a duet of consternation. "When?" "Before breakfast this morning. \ sudden call. She wished me to say 'good-bye' to you and to all other in Quiring friends." The secretary turned to attend to the telephone, which was going off like an alarm-clock doing a spurt against time, and the two men turned away in opposite directions. Gone! Miss Joan Sinclair gone! But was she returning? Both men turnad back surreptitiously and separately to ask this question. But the secretary could give no information on the sub ject. She could only recall precedents. She had never known Miss Sinclair to return under three or four months. Her father and brother needed hei'; doubtless, at home. Her address? Oh, Mr. Paget hail borrowed a tennis-racket, had he, and wished to return it? Ah, Mr...
THE ROMANCE OF THE HYDRO. I. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 2 October 1914
THE ROMANCE OF THE HYDRO. By A. B. Cooper. It was difficult to define the quality which constituted Joan Sinclair's charm. Neither Morley Paget nor Sid ney Garfield ever stopped to consider why they found her company so desir able, why they watched for her smile, why they schemed and almost fought for the place next to hers on the box seat of the .coach, for the daily drive to some place of interest in the lovely hill-country in which Birkwood Park Hydro is situated, and where these three hitherto complete strangers were staying, and Joan Sinclair found lies self actually losing sleep o*er these two nice-looking men, neither of whom made the least secret of his devotion. With her it was a case of "How happy I could be with either!" If looks were to count for most, un doubtedly Morley Paget had the pull. He was decidedly handsome. Certain ly there was nothing amiss with Sidney Garfield, although he was not such an Adonis as Paget. His eyes were his best feature, for' not only were th...

A HINT TO POULTRY KEEPERS. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 2 October 1914
A HINT TO POULTRY KEEPERS. An Irish lien-wife some time bad; sent in the following prescription, asking me to pass it on to all whom it may concern. We who have some experience of poultry-farming know that to leave eggshells lying about in poultry yards predisposes the hens to eat their eggs; but the lime contained in the empty shells 13 useful, more especially in confined runs, where there is a difficulty in finding shell-producing materials. A basket should be kept for the shelled eggs used for cooking, or for the table, and when a few are collected and become dry and crisp they should be rolled to a fine powder with n rolling-pin, and in that form be added to the poultry food. My correspondent further says that a no .ticeable increase in egg production will be the reward. Small Boy (in awed tones): Pa, do you know I looked into the par lor just now, and what do you think 1 saw? Father: Can't guess, my boy. Small Boy: Why, sister Polly was sitting on the piano-stool, and her young...

FOR ALL THAT. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 2 October 1914
FOR ALL THAT. It is queer how things go by contra ries here; 'Tis always too cold or too hot; And the prizes we miss, you know, always appear To be better than those that we're got; It is always too wet, or too dusty and dry. And' this land is too rough or too flat; j There's nothing that's perfect be neath the blue sky, But— It's a pretty good world, for all that. Some people are born but to dig in the soil. And sweat for the bread that they eat, While some never learn the hard meaning of toil, And live on the things that are sweet; All things go by contraries here up on earth, Life is empty and sterile and flat; Man begins to complain on the day of his birth, But— It's a pretty good world, for all that.

THE SENTENCE OF THE COURT. By FRED M. WHITE. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., London and Mell). All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XXV. The Danger Zone. Almost before the thing was done Herepath regretted it. He would have regarded such an act as incred ible folly on the part of anybody e'so. If he were caught with those stones in his possession there could only he one end to the adventure. Assured ly he would be arrested as either the thief or an accomplice. Had he been lured here for the very purpose of being duped? Had he been deliberately marked down for p. cats paw? These questions raced through his'mind rapidly. After all was said and done, he knew very little of Nin on Desterre. She was beautiful onu fascinating, and apparently ricb. She was a prime favorite in the most ex clusive circles, but Herepath had never heard anything of her family or of her relations. She seemed to read these troubled reflections as they flashed upon Herepath. But she was not i...
MEASURING HEART-BEATS. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 2 October 1914
MEASURING HEART-BEATS. No less wonderful than the mirac ulous cures effected by the modern surgeon are the delicatc instruments and appliances which he has invent ed from time to time, and which have greatly assisted him in the extraor dinary surgical feats he has accom plished of late years. At the London Hospital, for in stance, are to be seen various instru ments used in recording heart-beats, by the aid of which various forms of heart disease have been diagnosed long before they could have been heard by the stethoscope. It was ex plained, when describing these in struments at a recent meeting of the governors of the hospital, that when the heart beats it gives off minute electric currents which are made to cause a flue 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 to throw a shadow on to a sensitised film. When this film is de veloped a tracing is obtained, caused by the shadow of th...
CHAPTER XXVI., The Family Pictures. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 2 October 1914
CHAPTER XXVI., The Family Pictures. "The admittance would be just as well perhaps," Herepath said a trifle coldly. "My dear boy, you have just baen watching a little comedy of the most brilliant type. It is rather unfortun that you are not in the mood tp ap preciate it. Now, by my cleverness, backed by the natural astuteness of the Count, I have averted a great' scandal—and incidentally saved that excellent GilliBpie from a severe wig ging. That diamond is not mine " "I could see that from the first," Herepath replied. "You arranged the whole thing by signal under the very eyes of the police. It Btaggered me that they didn't see it." "L'audace, 1'audace et toujours l'audace," Ninon quoted. mockingly.' "My word, your eyes are not so hope less if you could follow all that. But that is another side of the question which we will discuss in due season. In the meantime, please do not run away with the idea that because the blue diamond is not mine therefore it belongs to the Princess. It ...
AVIATOR'S AWFUL PLIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 2 October 1914
AVIATOR'S AWFUL PLIGHT. No aviator has ever had so thrilling an experience as has just been the lot of Mr. Knox Morton, a young amateur, at Long Island, New York. He fell 1,000£t. In a series of perilous dives and lurches, and yet succeeded in landing, or rather was lucky enough to land, without more than a comparatively slight shaking, and was able to walk to Ills hotel. He was up in a biplane when the steering wire jammed and then snap ped. The machine at once tilted and fell sideways for about 100 feet. The spectators had given up all hope, and were watching, transfixed with horror. Suddenly the machine rode into a cur rent of wind and righted itself for a few seconds. It then began circling around, quite uncontrollable, and after a fall of an other 100ft. once more steadied itself. For a minute the aeroplane was even, but a third time it began to fall at a perilous angle. When within quite a short distance of the ground the machine once again righted itself and bumped down into ...
