Putting it to Them. . The young man had been with the party some time, and lie finally rose to go. The othez*s vetoed the. proposition. "Oh, sit down !" cried one. "What do j'ou Vant to break up the party for ?'! a^ked another.. "Be a good fellow," said the third. . Now that "Be a good fellow" well, every man knows what that means. Every man has done some thing he did not want to do and ought not to havo done for fear someone might think he was not a "good fellow." The young man, hesitated. "No ; I think I had better go," he said at last. "Nonsense ! It's , early yet !" pro tested one. "Sit down ! Sit down ! We'll all be home before twelve," added another. The young man sat dow'n, rested his arms on tlie table, and said : "Well, I'll submit the case to you.

Pulpit Y. Press. Members of the'Qllswaiter "Debat ing Society and'' Gymbowen Mutual Improvement"' jSociet'y debated the subject, " Which exferts the greater iufluepce, Pulpit of Wess ?" Ullswater champiobe'd 'the cause'of the Pulpit, and .Gymbowen that'of the Press. ? Mr T. Dixon, president of the Society, was in the chair, and Messrs E. J. Cranage, J. C' Chambers and K. Eobinson acted as judges. Mr Knuckey was., called first to defend the clerics and based his argu« ment on his belief that the spoken word- was stronger than tbo written. He dealt at length with the nnchange able truth propagated from the pupit; the aim of which was realisation of the ideal in man. Personality was a great factor to be considered and the influence of the , pulpit, though not evidenced materially was ' done in quietude. By the preaching of the Gospel hardened criminals had been changed, tears brought to the eyes of most stony hearted, and a new life instilled into those who would read a cold message in...

Pigeon Post. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 21 August 1914

Pigeon Post. Although it is indisputable that our telephone and telegraph systems are indispensable to modern busi ness, nevertheless it is very sur prising how useful the pigeon still proves himself to be for short dis tance communication, as the fol lowing will illustrate A certain old-established firm of dyers and bleachers, whose \>Torks are situated on the borders of Cheshire and Derbyshire, maintain a system of communication with their Manchester office by means of writ ten messages carried by well-train ed' pigeons. Whenever a message is required to be sent either one way or the other a pigeon is lib erated which carried "the docyment to its accustomed destination. The moment of his arrival is indicated by the ringing of an electric bell, duo to the bird having automati cally imprisoned himself by enter ing the cage provided at the top of the building. Should any answer be necessary to this message, another bird is set free to carry back the reply to the other end.. The di...

SPORT FOR CONVICTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 21 August 1914

SPORT FOR CONVICTS. Humanitarian motives have led | the authorities in the States to in j stitutc remarkable regulations in some of their penitentiaries. The convicts are allowed to smoke, play cards and various outdoor games, indulge in musical evenings, and en joy other privileges in order to ro lievo the todium of their long sen tences. ) And still there is a cry for more humane treatment for prisoners, the result of which has been the es tablishment of what is known as the State "Honour Prison," at Great Meadow, in the United States, ;i report concerning which has just been published. The prison is really - a thousand acre farm, on which the men are employed, everything being done to make the prisoners contented and happy. That the authorities have been very successful in this direc tion may be gathered from the fact that, although no walls surround the institution, only four men at tempted to" escape last year, and so indignant were the other convicts at what they considered an...

Hoaxing the Senators. THE STORY OF A PRACTICAL JOKE. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 21 August 1914

Hoaxing the Senators. f THE STORY OF A PRACTICAL JOKE. An amusing practical joke has just been played upon French Ministers of Parliament by a Parisian journalist. Every Deputy or Senator is glad of rin opportunity to bring his name before the notice of his con stituents, and no method is sim pler than that of subscribing for the erection of a statue to some dead and gone French celebrity who is in danger of being forgot ten. Knowing this, says the ' Times ' correspondent, a clever newspaper man invented a fictitious personage named Hegesippe Simon. Then he sent a printed circular to over a hundred Deputies, inviting; them to become honorary members of the committee which was being- organ ised to celebrate the centenary of the illustrious Hegesippc. For the benefit of those who might have forgotten this literary giant he ad ded a quotation from his works, "When the sun arises, the darkness vanishes away." The Deputies, who were unwilling to admit ignorance of the great man or to los...

Two Good Stories. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 21 August 1914

Two Good Stories. f Many of the stories told of Mr. Justice Maule, but (says the Lon don "Globe") \vc have to credit Mr. J.; C.- Philips with quite the best, which is given in his newly-published book, "My Varied Life." A little girl of five or six years old .was ' tendered as a witness be fore him, and counsel objected that it was impossible she could under stand the nature of an oath. "Come upf: my dear, and sit by me," said Haule. "Now, mjr child, you are going to-be asked some questions." "Yes, sin." "Now supposing you were a naughty little girl, and told stories,, do you know where you would go to !" "No, sir." " No more do I," said Maule. " Swear the witness." So far as we know, the following story of Disraeli which Mr. Philips tells is quite new\ and if it is not true it ought to be : When he was made Chancellor of the Exchequer by Lord Derby dur-' ing the latter's Government, n cer tain foolish Duke said to him : "Mr. Disraeli. I am glad to see that your talents are rewarded...

A Seal Story. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 28 August 1914

A Seal Story. j The following article on " SealsTas pets" may be of interest, says 'a correspondent. While shore-shoot-; ing on one of the Orkney islands, I suddenly stumbled on "a young: seal which Jiad evidently been enjoying a nap. Being anxious to capture it alive and uninjured, I was tit a loss how to proceed until I re called some of the reminiscences of a near neighbour, an old Davis-Strait: man. Profiting by this recollection I picked up a handy tangle-stalk and, ever so lightly, struck the seal over the snout. The effect was as tonishing. With a tremulous move ment of the entire body the animo 1 rolled over on its back, the fore flippers waving pathetically for a moment as if deploring the inhu manity of man. Catching sight of; an old sack washed up 011 the beach ,1 then pulled it hastily oVer the head faf the stunned animal, and slinging the burden on my back soon had the satisfaction of feeling that my cap tive was very much alive. For over a week I kept him anchored by o...

BIRD SAGACITY. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 28 August 1914

' BIRD 5AGA-CITV. A friend residing on the shore of Locli Linnhe tells ine, says a cor respondent, of a curious instance of bird sagacity that came \mder his observation last year. In a neigh bour's garden a pair of redstarts hart built their nest and hatched out their young. Before the birds were fully Hedged, my friend happen ed to visit, the owner of the gar den and to examine the nest and its contents. The fledglings num bered four, and, on handling them, he discovered that one of them had its leg newly broken. How the accident had occurred, it. was impos sible to conjecture, but the fact remained that the unlucky bird would not be aide to fend for it self as soon as the other members of the brood. My correspondent ex' pressed a desire to take the cripple home with him, so that he might provide for its well-being until the injured limb would heal. This ar rangement was agreed to, and the chick was deposited on a bed of dry grass within a small basket. The receptacle was taken iu...

Effect of Mind and Body. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 28 August 1914

Effect of Rilind and Body. A ' "The exaltation of victory makes wounded soldiers oblivious of gain, and the depression of defeat in creases mortality. If a cat is frightened for ten or fifteen min utes by a barking- dog, a sample of its blood will make strips of certain muscles relax when they are immersed in it, though such a por tion of blood had no effect oil them before the emotional disturbance. Frightened rabbits show almost complete prostration, and their brain cells, in contrast, wish those of nor mal animals, take a deeper stain from certain chemicals, and their size and shape are strikingly al tered." These well vouched state-! ments are made by Mr. F. W.. Eastman, and he adds an interesting experiment. "Jf an individual is placed in circuit with a delicate ? galvanometer and made to laugh, | to feel saiji, or is suddenly surpris- j e<i, there will be movements in the j (instrument indicating the passage of j Ismail elejctric currents.

DRAINAGE FOR THE YARD. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 28 August 1914

DRAINAGE FOR THE YARD. In locating a cowshed care should be taken to have a gentle slope from the shed in at least one direction af fording good natural drainage to both shed and yard. If the shed is al ready built and poorly located, grad ing and draining will do much to remedy the evil. In most cases it would take but a small amount of labour with a scraper when the ground is in suitable condition to handle to give the surface of the yard a slope from the shed sufficient to carry off the surplus water. Even if dirt has to be hauled in from out side the yard to accomplish this, it will not be expensive. Tile drainage alone will not be sufficient as the tramping of the cattle soon covers the surface, preventing the water from passing down the tile. Thirty years ago the cream separa tor did not exist, and now more than two million are in use throughout the world. The average girl will find her com plexion improved by the "" following weekly treatment. The last thing, at night bathe t...

But ic is not so well known that there are a great many waves that we cannot detect at nil by means of : any of our senses, and presumably a ! great many more that we have never been abl« to detect even ar tificially.

Even shorter ones are what are known ! as the ultra-violet, and these have to I be'detected artificially, by the taking of a picture in the. dark. Even shorter ones are the X-rays, which are in visible. Much longer ones than the ! longest heat wave are the electric waves of wireless telegraphy.
