A DOLL-LIKE MENU. jtfiss Winifred Harper Cooley, natio nal presidont oi* tho Associated Clubs oil Domestic Scionco (America) recent ly tried tho experiment of feeding for a week on concentrated preparations. Sho breakfasted'ou essences, lunched on powders aud tabloids, while sho found : her dinner in cubes aud tubes. Having decided to consider meats, vegetables, and sweets out of reach for tho timo being, she set about stocking her larder, as it she were thinking of a drug storo instead of a pantry. Sho found all kinds of chem ically prepared foods, beginning with pulverised soup ami ending with des sert in capsules.

ATMOSPHERIC CONDENSATION. [Newspaper Article] — Ultima and Chillingollah Star — 3 July 1914
ATMOSPHERIC CONDENSATION. The condensation of moisture in the atmosphere—i.e., the initial step in the formation of clouds, fog, ruin, hail, and Know—has been explained for more than a generation by the presence in the air of myriads of minute (mostly ultra microscopic) "dust" particles, each of wliidv was supposed to servo as a cen tre of condensation. The well-known instrument invented by Aitken, in 1SSS, in which, after a small measured vol ume of air has been cooled by expan sion, the resulting droplets of water are inspected through a microscope and counted, is know as the "dust-counter," because it has been assumed that tho number of drops formed in this process represents the number of particles of "dust" in the given volumo of air. This idea is intrenched in the very latest works on meteorology in tho Eng lish language, though qualified by the admission that in u highly supersatu rated atmosphere, such as may bo pro duced at will in a labatory but hardly occurs in nature, co...

HEAVILY INSURED LIMBS. The recent accident to Mine. I'avlova in 2sro\v York, which was at livst repor ted to be somewhat serious, recalls the i'act that, like PaderewsJci, v/hoso Augers are insured for a colossal aum against injury, the charming dancer has a policy which protects her against los3 from ac oidents to her limbs, and especially her [ feet aiul dainty toes, upon which her ! art and her income alike depend. It has nut yet been learnt how far the present accident comes under the terms i of this policy, although it is understood : that the disablement of either of the I big toes would mean payment of £0000,' and of one of the lesser toes £3000. I This, however, is by iio means an ex- J eeptional insurance. Nijinsky, who re cently appeared at the l'aiaee, and Allle.

GYROSCOPE MOTOR-CAR. [Newspaper Article] — Ultima and Chillingollah Star — 3 July 1914
GYROSCOPE MOTOR-CAR. A motor-cur with a lull-size body, but only two wheels, has been constructed by a Birmingham iirm from the designs oil Dr. 1*. feehilowsky, aud has, it is understood, proved satisfactory in pre liminary trials on tho road. The two wheels are placed in lino as in an ordi nary bicycle, and the machine is kept 'upright by meant* of a gyroscopic device controlled by two 2>endulums, which, when tho car inclines to ono side or Iho other from the perpendicular, bring*? the gyroscope into action to opposo the tendency to overturning. The inventor claims that a mono-track motor-car run ning under gyroscopic control can attain a given speed with a much less'power ful engine, and with a lighter frame and body than would bo needed for a four-wheeled car of the same rating; that as it requires only a very narrow path it is particularly adapted for use in new antl undeveloped countries; that the smoothness of running is greatly increased; that the eost of manufacture can b...
CORK PAVEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Ultima and Chillingollah Star — 3 July 1914
CORK PAVEMENTS. A new cork pavement is favorably re garded by tho municipal authorities in various eitics. it is noiseless to the tread, but at the same time durable, it is a variety of asphalt paving, in which cork is substituted Tor the sand of tho ordinary kind, preventing slip perii.'ess, and deadening to an even greater gcgroe the vibrations i'roin pass ing vehicles. ynow does not freeze to it, and as it is non-absorbent its qualities aooiu much superior to thoso of wood pavements. Tt is said to "stand" on heavy grades on which tho ordinary asphalt cannot be used at all, and still ali'ord a perfectly safe footing. For schools anil hospitals it would seem to be tho ideal pavement, especially for courtyards, playgrounds, and streets around the 'building.
