PREACHING PRODIGIES. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 2 October 1914

PREACHING PRODIGIES. Without the slightest sign of ner vousness, and with all the relig ious fervor and enthusiasm of one who has spent many years in the pulpit, the 14-year-old son of the Rev. Chas. Forbes, who has 'been conducting a mission at the Stratford Tabernacle, preached a striking sermon recent ly. Young Forbes began preaching at nine, and he has since toured through Beveral American towns. Some of his sermons have been printed and published, while many more have found their way to the hearts Qf American worlLlng-men. Curiously enough, it was at the Stratford Tabernacle that Miss Helen Coulthard, who, as "Nellie, the Child Evangelist," has touched the emo tions of thousands, preached last Easter. Miss Coulthard is now twenty yearB of age, and when she was nine spoke in the open air at a Church Army meeting. Since then her "conversions" have been many. She is a sister of Miss Libby Coult hard, the 14-year-old millgirl of Bol ton, who has held large congrega tions spell-boun...

Camp Fire Philosophy OFF THH BBATKX TKACK. (Br an Ancient Angler.) The desire to get away from the beaten track of every day affairs, and far from the madding crowd of the usual holiday resorts, for rea sons, varying with the individual, such as away from "the matchmak ing mammas," the "Tin Gods" and "Gandy Josses" of society, "the j cigarette sucking Johnnies whose hats," the "giggling Jennies whose vacant laugh betrays the empty I mind" to no reason at all were the primary causes of a party, com prising some very eligible, and sev eral very ancient, cronies and kin dred spirits, including a handsome young bachelor medico from Collins street, a crotchety editor, of a Syd ney daily newspaper, a bald-headed barrister—minus his wig—a heavy weight head manager of an Austra lasian bank, a c\j,y auctioneer, a Bro ken Hill broker, a gay young Scotch man, two big boys, and my eccentric self, selecting Doughboy Island as "the spot" for a prolonged holiday.

PERILS OF THE DIVER'S WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 2 October 1914

PERILS OF THE DIVER'S WORK. Referring to the death of a diver en gaged on the Empress of Ireland wreck, a writer says that the first sen sation felt when the diver goes down to thirty feet or so below the surface is a singing in the ears. This is due to the drum of the ear being stretched a little, and this is caused in turn by the fact that the air pressure on the outside has been increased, while that on the inside is kept normal for a few seconds longer by some slight ob struction in the Eustachian tube con necting the ear with the nose. Ordinarily a diver may descend quite quickly to the scene of his work. But he must be very careful how he conies up, and the longer he remains down the more time must he take in coming up. The reason is that all the time he is down his blood is absorb ing air. The greater the depth the greater the pressure of the air, and the more of it he absorbs in a given time. His blood becomes a rated like soda-water in a syphon. The air bub bles out. At 200...

Federal Politics. Monday, 21st September. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 2 October 1914

Federal Politics. (From Our Correspondent.) Monday, 21st September. The new Ministry will be a sur prise and a disappointment to many, for it is by no means as strong as the last Labor administration. The first point which will strike the aver age elector is that preference to un ionists, nominally at least the cause of the recent double dissolution, has been jettisoned by the Labor party. How else can we interpret the fact that King O'Malley, the author of the administrative policy, which Mr. Fisher as Prime Minister tried to water down with the phrase "other things being equal," lias been un ceremoniously left out, and only a few days after he had publicly stated that he was a candidate for a seat in the Ministry. Then again Mr. Josiah Thomas, who as Minister for External Affairs notified the man who was accepted to go to the Northern Territory in connection with surveying work that if not a member of a recognised union he must join one forthwith or his ap pointment would terminat...

WIRELESS TELEPHONES. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 2 October 1914

WIRELESS TELEPHONES. That the next few years will see some remarkable developments in wireless telegraphy is forecasted by the surprising experiments which have just 'been successfully carried out. Mr. Marconi hopes to establish shortly a wireless telephone between his ofiice in the Strand and his country house at Fawley, Hampshire, sixty-seven miles away. "Already," he says, "we have had c nversations with Berlin. We could not hear all the words, but the test was very promising, seeing that we were talking over 600 miles. And recently we had wireless telephone communication between warships forty miles apart which was entirely satisfactory." Even more astonishing, however, is the wireless telephone apparatus invented by two French naval olli cers, Commander Colin and Lieuten ant Jeance, by which conversations were easily carried on recently over a distance of 150 miles. Every tone and inflection of the speaker's voice was preserved, as if he had been in the same room. Five years ag...

PUNISHED FOR SHAVING OFF MOUSTACHE. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 2 October 1914

PUNISHED FOR SHAVING OFF MOUSTACHE. The colonel of a cavalry regiment in the east of France, having noticed that one of his men had shaved off his moustache, issued an order in which he described the act as "unworthy of a trooper." They could, he said, never have too much hair in the cavalry on the face, and he ordered the offender to be con fined to barracks until his moustache had grown again. The colonel urged his subordinates to take vigorous steps to suppress "an effeminate habit which is out of place in the army."

SONG OF HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 2 October 1914

SONG OF HOPE. There is a pill for every ache, a salve for every sore, so let's rejoice and never make a rumpus any more. There is a poultice for each head, for every pain some dope; until the doc tors say we're dead, no one should give up hope. I knew a man once on a time who had no store of cash; he Baid this world was quite a crime, and all its glories trash; and so he got a neigh bor's axe, and by the old horse trough, witli sundry strong and skil ful whacks he chopped his head piece off. Next week a lawyer printed ads. announcing that this knave had fall en heir to heaps of scads, but he was in his grave. The darkest hour, as Homer said, is just before the Dawn; there's often comfort just ahead when all the hope seems gone. There is a syrup for each cough, a lance for every boil, so never think to shuffle off some yards of mortal coil. Misfortune hits us now and then, but if we bravely grin, she'll go pur suing weaker men and push their faces in. .There is a cure for every wart,...

Homeless. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 2 October 1914

Homeless. Most single men are homeless, and Less happy than they could be; Most married men, we understand, Are home less than they should be. A young Japanese compositor, em ployed on a Japanese paper in New York, was riding down town in a city hall train recently. He was engrossed in his morning paper, and paid little attention to the other passengers. But a fresh-looking young man, who sat next to him, and who had been eyeing him all along, suddenly asked, "What sort of a 'nese' are you, any way; a Chinese or a Japanese?" The little Jap was not caught nap ping. Quick as a wink, he replied: — "What sort of a 'key' are you, any way; a monkey, a donkey or a Yan kee?" The father had listened patiently whilst his wife's relations discussed the naming of the baby. Dorothea, Pauline, Carmelita, and Esmeralda had been suggested. At last the patient parent broke in upon the conference. "Excuse me," he said, "but wouldn't it be as well to remember that you are naming a baby and not a twope...

A Rare Chance. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 2 October 1914

A Rare Chance. Having tried unsuccessfully various highly-recommended recipes for dis lodging selfish passengers from covet ed seats, the woman who swung from a strap in front of the sandy man tried talking at him to her husband. As a peroration to her harangue, she said, impressively:— "If you, James, should ever he bad mannered enough to Bit down while there was a woman in the car left standing, I would never speak to you again as long as I live." The sandy man looked up then. "Lucky fellow," he said. "Not many of us could purchase peace at that price."

MAXIMS FOR BUSINESS MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 2 October 1914

MAXIMS FOR BUSINESS MEN. One constantly hears the expression that So-and-so failed in his business be cause 'he bit off more than he could chew"; in other words, took on a big ger job than he could manage. In the opinion, however, of Mr. Herbert Cas son, who has been speaking on behalf of the convention of business men which was held at Toronto at the end of last month, an excellent maxim for the business man to bear in mind is —"Bite off more than you can chew— and chew it." Among other maxims which he gave are the following:— System is not everything. You can go to the bad systematically. An advertising man is a saver built like a spender, juBt as an oyster is a fish built like a nut. The right place to cut prices is in the factory. The man who cuts prices in the shop does so because he has not the brains to sell his goods. The development of the motor in dustry is due to the skill of the sales men, who were selling cars for seven years before the manufacturers knew how to make th...

LIGHTNING CALCULATORS. Mathematical Marvels. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 2 October 1914

LIGHTNING CALCULATORS. Mathematical Marvels. There is at the present time study ing at Cambridge one of the most won derful mathematicians the world liaB ever seen—a young Hindoo, Mr. S. Ramanujan by name—whose work, al though he is only twenty-six years of age, has excited the admiration of all mathematical experts. Perhaps the most extraordinary thing about Ram anujan is that, as a mathematician, he is quite untaught. Until a year ago he was a clerk in the employment of the Port Trust of Madras. But in spite of this, he has, to quote Mr. liardy, Fellow of Trinity, who has taken a great interest in Ramanujan, "discovered for himself a great num ber of things which the leading mathe maticians of the last hundred years had added to the knowledge of school men, although he was ignorant of their work and accomplishments. Indeed, his mathematical education is rather a mystery, and the first I knew of him was about fifteen months ago, when he wrote to me explaining who he was, and sent a...
