Home-made Paint Brush. "Necessity is the mother of inven tion," so whon I wanted a paint brush and could not find one nt hand. I proceeded to make one and was surprised at the good results ob tained. I wound some hinder twine in a cojl about my hand as shown in the sketch. After removing the coil from my 'land I wound more twine tightly around onvhalf of thte coil, thus forming a handle for the brush and leaving tile other half Brush Mtde {ram Rope Fiber for the brush part. I then cut tho briish end off square nnd combed out all tho loose ends nnd the brush was complete. This brush was excellent for rough work and did fine work with surprising ly good results.

I'M DREAMING OF THE MEADOWS. « : Our Great Ballad, Specially Written for us by Our Own Ballad Writer, William P., Kirk. I'm sitting in the city, the city far away, The landlord is expected soon, he came twice yesterday. (1) The grocer's getting sullen, (2) the butcher swears in German, (3) The outlook of it all, dear heart, I dread for to determine. If I could be»a child again, a child on mother's knee, And get another leathering, how happy I would be ! (4) This city, life is no account, I long to be a jay, I'm dreaming of them meadows and those new-mown hay. (5) CHORUS : I'm dreaming of them meadows where I walked with. childish feet, (6) I'm dreaming of those new-mown hay, It used to smell so sweet. Dear father used to snore at night, but almost every day You could find him in them meadows midst those new-mown hay. So that there may be no doubt in the minds of our readers as to the meaning of this beautiful poem, we append some notes. (1) He came for the rent probably, although th...

Beloved Ugliness. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 9 October 1914

Beloved Ugliness. --. For some years now there has existed, in different ?) forms, a love of ugliness-or so it appears. Take the Futurists, for instance, the Cubists, Post-Impressionists, and other "ists," that have lately burst upon an astonished world. Their work, if judged by the standards of a few years ago, could not pos sibly be called beautiful; and yet it is almost worshipped by a grow ing number of people. Even children have developed a lovo of monstrosities in the shape of toys. One .sees a child of to-day fondling some hideous toy freak with all the love imaginable. The same child would probably turn in disgust from the homely old rug doll. Why is it? Mr. Crane, tho famous artist, says it is because "children, like their el ders, like change." At present, they j have taken a fancy for ugly toys, I or, nt any rate, are not frightened of them. But he also thinks that children aro still fond of tho old picture-books of the 'seventies. After all, wo are all children-of differ...

THE3 DINER'S RUSE. The members of the club were tell ing yarns, when the quiet man in the corner was asked to contribute. "Well, said he, "I once entered a restaurant' where they, weigh .you be fore eating, and then after eating., and then charge you by weight. I had a good feed, and wqb charged ten shillings. The next time I went I took in my pockets bricks, weights and such-like. X was weighed., and then went upstairs and had a ban quet three times as big as the last. I went down and was weighed again but they couldn't make it, out." He paused/ "Couldn't make what out?" the club members asked. "Why," answered the quiet man, "they owed me four and tuppence." In explaining his reason for turn ing farmer, Sir Rider Haggard, the great novelist, says:-"There came a j time when I was not satisfied with my output of fictional and imagina-! tive matter, wlien I thought I would j like to do something practical in the j world, something that would affect j those who followed."

The Dying Sfeaforth. Long years ago I made a VOW I'd train and go to war, Where'er my country wanted me, whe ther near or far ; i A soldior's life I cherished, and I loved the drum and fife, So I joined the gallant Soaforths, and served them all my life.

No More Bald Heads. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 9 October 1914

No More Bald Heads. i A method of sewing hairs in the human scalp in eases of partial or total baldness has been successfully used in several instances by Br. Szekely at tho hospital of Saint Stephane at Budapest, and a report appears in the "Times." The number of hairs "planted" in the head of a patient has been as many . as 50,000. One hundred hairs are drawn through punc tures in the scalp to every square centimetre, and as both ends aro left free, the number is thus 200, or over 1,000 to each square inch. Very fine gold wires are used, one five-hundredth of an inch in. diame ter, and lino long hairs from a woman's head are attached at the middle to these. The gold loop or knot acts . as an "anchor," and after sterilization is introduced into the subcutaneous tissue, where it is slightly twisted, and holds the hair permanently in position. It is stated that 500 hairs can thus bo introduced into tho scalp within three-quarters of an hour. Dr. Szekely has designed a spe cial instru...

APPOINTMENT OF REPRESENTATIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 9 October 1914

APPOINTMENT OF REP RESENTATIVE. At Malvern council 011 Monday night Cr Carrol! moved-That Cr Thomson be the council's represen tative on the trust for the ensuing two years. Cr Weller seconded the resolution. Or Holmes said he had not changed the views he expressed two years ago that the position should be osen to any member of the council. He was not an aspirant for tin vacancy on the Trust. He would, however, sup port any candidate against Cr Thorn son, only on the principle that he believed such positions should go round. Cr li. I. Thompson said when they possessed a reprtsenthlive who had made himself thoroughly conversant with the work, it would be a great mistake to make an alteration. The resolution was practically carried unanimously, and Or Thomson acknowledged the compliment Cr T.

The revenue for the same period was £ 107,788 ir/3, as against 59,123 for 1912 13.

It was also very gratifying to learn that the council's dividend would be equal to that of last year.

Silk Wings for Aeroplanes. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 9 October 1914

Silk Wings fer Aeroplanes. i " Although to the lay mind the sug gestion that aeroplane* ah«*ld be fitted with silk wing* may . ®eem an unnecessarily extravagant idea, there arc certain advantage* ta be gained by such an innovation which would warrant the extra expense. Not that the latter weuld be very great. The eost of using silk on a modern biplane would not increase the expense by more than £20 per machine, while it is estimated that it would reduce the weight by about 201b. Such a saving in v. eight, of course, is highly import* ant, and when it is mentioned that £1,000 to £1,200 is usually spent on a biplane. the item of cost seems in no way considerable. In the opinion of experts there are certain objections to using silk for aeroplane wings. .It is pointed out that while it is superior to linen, which is now used, in regard to strength, it does not stand ex posure to sun and rain so well. Furthermore silk does not lend it self so well to dressing with tautening liquids, whic...
