IF ONLY WE HAD KEENER SENSES. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 15 July 1914
IF ONLY WE HAD KEENER SENSES. Of course everyone knows by now that everything we hear or see comes in a wave motion. But it is not so well known that there are a great nany waves that we cannot detect at ll by means of any of our senses, and presumably a great many more that we have hever been able to de tect even artificially. Take other waves, for instance. We know that those of a certain length wre heat waves; they can be felt. buht not seen. Shorter ones are light waves, from the long red to the short violet. Even shorter ones are what -re known as the ultra-violet, andi these have to be detected artificially, by the taking of a picture In the dark Even shorter ones are the X-rays. which are invisible. Much longer ines-than the longest heat wave are 'the electile waves of wireless tele rraphy. 4Now, remember that all the waves specifled differ in only one par tlcular-that of length. Ve c.nnbt conceive (says A. L. Hiodges,i writing in the American "Sunday Magazine") of there bein...

A BROTHER'S LOVE By GRAHA.I BROWN, Author of "The Soul o. Lucille," 'The League of the Sacred Scarab," etc. Published by arrangement with Cassell & Co. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XV. STarnished Honor. When Nellie Charlton opened her eyes again she found herself sitting in the arm-chair, and the nlan's face was close to hers. The muscles of his face were working spasmodically. anna very gently he stroked the dark hair from her brow. "Oh, Douglas, Douglas!" she cried, "why are you here? IHave yeou been here all the time? Itave you listen ed-oh, do not kill me! Hlave mercy!" Sie looked at her wlth a glance which was half-kind, half-sc-rnful. "Nellie," he said. "I could have kill ed you--I could have killed him. But I'm not mad now. I want to plead with you. If yoe will hasr me, it is not too late," and, he stretched his trembling hand forward.

CLEVER BUT CONCEITED. The Vanity of Great Men. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 15 July 1914
CLEVER BUT CONCEITED. The Vanity of Great Men. "No really great man ever thought himself so," Hazlitt once wrote; but, although greatness is for the most part allied to modesty, there have been many men whose genius was well matched by their conceit, ever since, and no doubt long before, Hor ace proclaimed to the world, "I have reared a monument more lasting than brass and loftier than the regal structure of the Pyramids.," a boast which has its parallel in Shake sreare's lines: "Not marble, nor the gilded monu ments Of Princes, shall outlive this pow erful rhyme." Ovid punctuated his deathless lines with crows of van.ity, as when he says, ' have written this essay as a possession of all time"; and Pliny wrote to his friend Paulinus that he always had the reward of Immortality before his eyes. And from Dante to Walt Whitman it would be easy to name poets by the dozen who were of Cervantes' opinion that "everyone whose verse shows-him to be a poet should have a high opinion of him se...

rTHE ROMANCE OF SILVER Wonderful Tale of the Comstock Lode Which Outrivals the Wildest Fiction. There is to iction dealirng with the lilsIing of treasure which can com p,.re with thle plain facts concerning the Comsntock Lode. Tile wonderful caves of Aladdin pale into insignifi cance before the treasures held in California's "Snowy Range." the Sier ra Nevada. A few barren acres of tb t sterile land have yielded far greater treasures than any similar area in the world, for the rocks were practically masses of silver. That great ledge of silver, the Com stock Lode, drove wild the imagina tion of the coolest, and men went mad from the very existence of the unfath omable treasure. The Big Bonanza. alone, for three years yielded £600.000 a month, and as the depth of the tmines Increased, so did the wealth. As the shafts went down the ore sas found deeper and wider than be fore, until at last the depths became too hot for human existence, and the levels became filled with sulphurous steam...

Every shipyard that builds for the Navy mutlist take great precautions that none of the secrets entrusted to its care shall leak out. ictectives watch all visitors and tep' the workmnen undei' observation also. Plnini-clothes ollicers guard every entrance, and nobody is allowed to bring in even a small parcel Sn Tess it is lirst examined, for fear that it may conceal a camera.

Worth Remembering. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 15 July 1914
Worth Remembering. I Manny of the little problems which we encounter in daily life may be overcome if we but give them a moment's seriouls thought. And once we discover a method of doiyng a thing neatly or of saving labour, we should remember just how we did it. for the experience will prove useful to us agrain some day. Probablv many of our readers have at some time met with a stubborn glass stopper which ab solutely refused to leave the neck of the bottle. Tapping the stopper with ; something hard is not a method to be recommended-it is often accompanied with 'danger to the neck of the bottle. The best method is to warm the neck and make it expandl around the stopper, when the latter may be easily removed. All that is necessary is to take a stout piece of string, the coaX ser the better; give it a turn around the neck, as shown in Vig. 1, and saw back and forth a ninute or two. If it is a small bottle grip it be tween the knees and work with both hands, but if it is a large bottle...
