INVENTIONS BY ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 9 July 1914
INVENTIONS BY ACCIDENT. Many important inventions were merely the result of accident. An al chemist, experimenting in earths for the making of crucibles, found that he had invented porcelain. A watcllmakcr's apprentice, holding a spectacle-glass between his thumb and forefinger, noticed that through it the neighboring buildings appeared larger, and thus he discovered the adaptability of the lens to the tele scope. A Nuremberg glass-cutter by acci dent one day dropped a little aqua fortis upon his spectacles. He found that It corroded and softened the glass, and hlie conceived the. idea of etching, lie drew figures upon the glass with varnish, applied the fluid, and cut away thile glass about the drawing. When he removed the var nishl the figures appeared, raised on a dark ground. The process of whitening sugar was nleversknown until a hlen walk ed through a clay-puddle and then strayed through a sugar-house. Her tracks were left in the piles of sugar, and when it was noticed that th...

WOMAN'S WORLD. OLD MOTHERS. I love old mothers--mothers TWith white hair, And kindly eyes, anlld lips grown softly sweet Withn murmured blessings over sleep ing babes.

THINGS WE TAKE FOR GRANTED. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 9 July 1914
THINGS WETAKE FOR GRANTED.? We have been so long accustomed to living in civllised society that a hundred-and one conveniences which are used by us every (lay of our lives never strike us as being ours only by virtue of the fact that a gradual pro gression In the total amount of hu man knowledge has made them pos sible. There are so many things whllich we are accustomed to use and which we never have to do without that it seldom occurs to us that once upon a time man had none of them. Take, for instance, the houses in which we live. It is as certain as ally thing can be that there was a time when no houses were built. Man was ill such a primitive state that he had not the least conception of the build er's art, and all he could do to obtain sole amnlount of shelter from the wlid oandirain was to hide within caves in thie rocks and cliffs. Those caves in deed were tile first primin.tive homes of inankiiud. Ve take our fireplaces for granted. There was no lireoplace in the cave holne ...

.: "MEDICAL MEMS. S :Paitn in the Feet. In itnany cases pain in the feet is owing to the presence of corns, bun ions, or chilblains.

OBITUARY. Young. Dandenong was steeped in de ressire gloom on Tuesday morning it about Is o'clock, when it was Innounced that Mr Murdoch Young, manager of the Commercial Bank of Anustralasia, had died suddenly about half an hour previously at his resi dence at the bank, Lonsdale'street, Dandenong. The deceased was such a robust type of a Scotchman that no one anticipated such a- calamity should befall hin. Ho stood about Gft. high, broad in proportion, and was always a steady, well living man. He was ardently fond of golf but beyond that did not indulge in mnuch out-door exercise, his time being otherwise taken up Wvith his banking aflairs, and his family.

The sad blow to the widow and family is also difficult to realise, and the hearttelt symnpathy and condolence of the whlol- district for ma...
