Phantom Monoplane. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 17 July 1914
Phantom Monoplane. The first air-ghost has just been encountered on Salisbury Plain by one ol tho most skilful of our Army avintors, who went up on a mono plane on a cloudy day accompanied by his mechanic. Tho aeroplane en tered tho clouds, and tho pilot was continuing his flight in them, when suddenly ho discovered another mo noplane^ no more than fifty yards away, coming straight towards him out of the mist. Ho dived almost vertically, and nfter a headlong de scent lovelled out onco more, but his relief was only momentary. The other pilot must havo performed exactly the same manoeuvre, for no sooner was ho speeding uloiu* again on a level keel than, ho saw the monoplane onco again looming out of the mist, heading straight towards hi'.n. Terror-struck, the pilot dived again, emerged below tho clouds, and forthwith landed. Not until then did tho explanation strike hiin. Ho had fallen a victim to an hallucination of tho clouds fa milar to every Alpinist, and seen his living shadow pr...

This remarkable stick wus fnsliioned _ from a branch of tho Boscobel onk which once concealed Charles H. when escap ing from Cromwell's soldiers. Queen Victoria had it altered somowhat, and a littlo idol from Scringapatnm was insertod as n knob. King Edward's collection of walk ing-sticks, of course, included all sorts of designs. It was a fact, however,- that ho preferred as' a rule an ordinury crook shape., In deed, his fondness for this particular design gave not a little impetus to its popularity. 1 Talking of famous walking-sticks and their owners, Jlossrs.

Yawning as an Exercise. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 24 July 1914
Yawning as an Exercise. .Yawning is said to have an ex ceedingly healthful function besides having n salutary cffect in com plaints of the pharynx and tho eu&tachian tubes. According to in vestigations yawning is tho* most natural form of respiratory exor cise, bringing into action all tho form of rospitatory muscles of tho neck and chest. Jt is recommended that every per son should havo a good yawn with the stretching of the limbs morning and evening for the purpc.se of ven tilating tho lun&s and tonifying tho respiratory muscles. An eminent authority asserts that this form of gymnastics has a re markable effccfr in relieving throat and car troubles, and savs that pa tients suffering from disorders of the throat have derived great benefit from it.

IN BORROWED PLUMES. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 24 July 1914
IN BOimOWED PLUJIES. The Amir of Afghanistan, smitten with Westernizing- notions, insists upon the personages of his Court appearing in'' European clothes. There are many amusing features about this crnze. for "European dress. Uso is made of cast-off uniforms that may bu seen in Kabul" is as amazing as it is amusing. The wor like Afghan mny be seen strutting about even in the stations on the Indiun border ns proud as a pea cock in a uniform which bears 011 it the name of a. well-known Lon don music-hall. while there are others in the uniforms of English and: Continental . railway-guards. Frequently it is oniv a coat that is worn, and a pair of brown baro legs completo the outfit. "You ask my hand in marriage. Aren't you rather ambitious ?" "Yes, but I always did strive for big things." From that moment his case was hopeless.

Style With the Gloves. POINTS AN I) TRICKS OF KING CHAMPIONS COMPARED BY OUIl EXPERT. Stylo in boxing* is tho finishing' touch given by n particular man to a general principlo in his own way. To give «n instance, tho principle of tho straight lead-off at the head is tho samo tlie world over. lJut no two very good boxers do it in quite the snmc way. To tako this simple blow-tho straight loft nt tho head-thcro is very little room for much variety, ^.ot champions have mado this host of all blows effective in quite dif ferent ways. Jim Driscoll, to tako a present ly example, has the quickest left I htiv© ever seen.- He does not just pop it into his opponent's fnce once and back away, but as «. rule, with lightning KwiftniM.*, ho hits again and again-sometimes four times in succession. How different is the Frenchman, Georges Corpentier ! With him there is jOSt ns much grace of f movement, the same eagerness to J follow up an advantage, but the stylo is totally different.

In Old Japan. THE CHARM OF KYOTO. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 24 July 1914
. in Old Japan. 4 THE CHARJI OF KYOTO. No city iu Japan has mora charm than Kyoto, none is per haps so thoroughly worth whilo from the point of view of the tra veller. Tho Japanese havo a say ing that you must never use the word magnificent till you havo seen Nikko. Splendour indeed seems to mock at the hard reality of death on the terraced hillside planted with giant cryptomenas where the Shoguns sleep in such pomp. Dut Nikko, despite its per fect natural surroundings, is withal a tomb, Kyoto old in story, a place of living men. This ancient capital of the Jlikados has, despite modern innovations, maintained that essentially Japa nese charactcr which is half obli terated in Tokio. True, tho nar row streets are a network over head of telephone and telegraph wires and electric cables. Poles almost bonding under the weight of the cables they carry are curious and unattractive objects which havo to be accepted in every little Ja panese town and village to-day. One of the first question...

Useful Winter Wrap. ' Our sketch shows a useful littla I garment that can very easily b# made, and that may be slipped on J under a coat prior to going out, and that not only will protect the shoulders, chest, and back from tho cold, but will also keep the neck nnd shoulders warm without usin^ a scarf of any kind.

FEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 24 July 1914
FEAR. A large majority «f men and wo men, especially among the uneducat ed, Know very little about apprehen sion in any form. They feel.it sel dom and forget it noon. They do not even fear death so long* as it comes to them in bed. We are continually told nowadays that the place of the poor is out of the sun. Possibly this is true, but on this very account tho darkest shadow's are not seen by them. For thinking1 men and women, however, apprehension docs darken life-more than most of th©m care to say. It begins early, often with the awakening of the memory, and they nre never entirely freo of it. Th© amount of fear which besots many of us out of all proportion to the amount of misfortune which wo have had to endure, or even to that which in our ratioual mo ments we OA'peet.

Mr Salmon slates that Southdown*, year by year, liavo earned more protil pi-r 100 acres grazed over than any other bieetl ol sheep he has tried. For instance, in 1913, 408 pure Suuthdown ewes of all ages, 135 neing maiden, ri-ing 4&lt;tuo'h, returned in wuul about 5. 9J per ewe, or just about £97. (The prices ranged from 9Jd to Is OJd per II ). Added to this there was 97 per cent of lambs-396 - it 13i 6d net, equal to £267 6-i, or a total cash re turn of...
Bird Hospital. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 24 July 1914
Bird Hospital. There is in New York the tiniest hospital in the world. All sorts of feathered patients lie in the wicker baskets, filled with soft white cot ton and supported on tall wicker stands, that form the beds. The owner and director of iho hospital, a lady, knows how to take care of birds, and she acts as surgeon, nurse, and druggist nil in one. There is an operating-rooom, with all kinds of small sterilised instru ments, fairy-like casts and splints, a sun room where the birds may flutter back and forth in a bower of green, and a tiny delicatessen store stocked with fat wriggly worms in small glass bottles, hun dreds of brilliantly-coloured dragon flies, and just the right kind of seed for each patient's diet. Every one of the birds loves "Doc tor" Pope-the lady's name is Vir ginia Tope-and when she passes on her morning rounds rows of little feathered heads bob up over the sides of the baskets, and dozens of bird voices-some of them very faint ami weak, others loud and shr...
