The Riddle of Scent. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 21 May 1914

The Riddle of Scent. j H has boon said that the modern i man's chief aim is to !>o ablo to travel to nowhere in particular at top speed. There is a good deal of truth in the sneer. Xon-stop runs at top speed are :tll the rage whether one travels by land, by water, or through the air. Nature's methods are, as a rule, more leisurely. She lias shown what sh*» can do in the case of cortaln birds which will always re main tho despair of tho airman, but so far* as most of her offspring are concerned she favours endur ance rather than speed. It is true that many animals can move like the Ynnkce'a greased lightning, but very few of them can keep it up for long. A hare can travel at great speed /or a while, especially uphill, but left to herself she would never dream of doing so, preferring to lob along quite slowly.^ Why hurry when nil time is yours ? Badly hustled, the hare's one idea is to out-pace her enemies by a burst of speed, and then hide, a plan which would answer perfectly In m...

Napoleon and Science. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 21 May 1914

Napoleon and Science. We think of Napoleon as the great Lord of War, the butcher of human lives, the builder of ti great em pire, built only to fall even before the death of its founder. It is well to remember that his genius was great also in other most lastingly fruitful fields. lie \sns not only a groat warrior, but also a great statesman—and as such he did not fail to realise the im portance to the community of arts ami sciences. Writing to the astronomer, Orinno, from .Milan, which he had entered in triumph, Napoleon said : "The sciences which do honour to the human mind and the arts which embellish life and ncrpetunte great achievements for posicritv, should be especially honoured under free , governments. j " 1 Iiivj1i)h» scholars to j meet ami to give me their opinions J as to the means »ImI .should he! takon. and the needs to be fulfilled, ; in order to bring" »<•» Ji;'e and ac- , tivity into the sciwurs and the line tirls.

How Animals Doctor Themselves. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 21 May 1914

How Animals Doctor Themselves. It is held that the simple reme dies of Xature generally suffice to cure beasts of their ailments, nml that they are guided to them by instinct. In a communication to the bio logical Society of 1'arjs a distin guished naturalist has pointed out that medicine as practised by ani mals is thoroughly empirical. but that the same may be suid of thut practised by inferior human ruces, or. in other words, by the majority of the human species. Animals instinctively choose such food as is best suited to them. It is maintained that the human race also exhibits this instinct, and the French authority referred to blames medical men for giving insuMicient attention to the likes and dislikes of their patients in this respect. This instinct, he believes, is a guide that may be relied upon. A large number of species wash themsch es and bath»;—elephants, stags, birds, ants. etc. Animals rid themselves of thr-ir parasites by using (lust, mud, clay, etc. Those sutTering ...

It was old Ucmus, and Felix knew him at a glance. If he had been inclined to doubt his senses before, to think himself tho prey of u moonlight hallucination or a fever ish fancy, Kemus's appearance would have dispelled them. The old man bent over his master's form, evidently aghast at finding the face uncovered. A cry of fear broke from him. and lifting his head, he peered cautiously round. Felix could not wait another se cond. He bounded forward and seized Ucmus by the shoulders. "Von know me, don't you, Re nins? Oh, .\es, I understand all now," came in quick, breathless sente...

Evolution of the Alphabet. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 28 May 1914

Evolution of the Alphabet. The art of expressing ideas l>y i signs was in ancient times nn oc c»dt science known ouh' to th« priests, who hud acquired it, di rectly or indirectly, from the ttgyp tinns. Some M.ooo years before the Christian era the inhabitants of the Valley of the Nile distinguished -'2 different artiruhttions of speech, which they represented by. n com plicated series of signs and ideo grams. The Phoenicians simplified the Kgyptinn alphabet by eliminating all signs except those correspond ing to simple articulations—i.e., the consonants, thus obtaining 22 dis tinct characters. M. Hennn calls the Phoenician Alphabet one of the greatest creations oi human intel ligence. The (.Jreeks made use of the same 22 characters, adapting tin in to the liquid and sonorous tones of their language by adding several signs to represent the vowel sounds. From f.Ireece the alphabet spread to Italy and the rest of Kurope, and was gradually followed by the in troduction of books and l...
