WHY CATS FALL ON THEIR FEET. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 8 June 1917

WHY CATS FALL ON THEIR FEET. An ingenious model was construct ed some time ago to show why a cat in falling always alights on its feet. The imitation cat consists J a card board cylinder, with four rods stuck in it for legs, and a tail devised on similar principles; and the object is to show that a cat's faculty of falling on its feet depends on the rotation of its tail. Some interesting information on this problem is given by the superin tendent of a zoological garden, who has made several experiments. Thb faculty of always falling on the feet is one which is especially developed, ho claims, by climbing and leaping animals, in which category are includ ed all the cat tribe, monkeys, squir rels, and rats. The instinct is born in them, and the act of twisting is per formed without any conscious effort on the part of the animal. The opinion is that the tail plays an important part in the turning process. "All tree-inhabiting monkeys have long tails," says this autiiority, "and there i...

FAMOUS FOR HER HAIR. PICTURE FILM ARTIST TELLS HOW TO RETAIN IT. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 8 June 1917

FAMOUS FOR HER HAIR. PICTURE FILM ARTIST TELLS HOW TO RETAIN IT. Miss Rosa Norma, in a recent Inter view in Melbourne, made tlie follow ing statement:-"Any lady or gentle iran can restore their hair to its na tural color should it be fading, falling or becoming streaked with grey, and promote a vigorous growth with this simple recipe, which they can mix at homo:-Take lvioz. of Itejuveni Compound, to which add loz. of Bay Rum, shaking well together, and then add enough water to make up to lOoz. (Yz pint). You will be more than surprised at the gratifying results ob tained by its u&e. It is not a dye, and there is consequently no fear of dis colored pillows from its rubbing off during sleep. It promotes a vigorous growth of air, destroys dandruff, and eradicates eruptions and scalp hu mors. It makes the hair beautifully soft and glossy, and has all the charm of being inexpensive. Almost every chemist has these simple ingredients in stock, or can easily get them for you from th...

Cost of a Big Sea Fight. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 8 June 1917

Cost of a Big Sea Fight. Ten million pounds sterling-more gold than 1,000 strong men could well carry; a sum which would maintain 4,000 families in reasonable comfort for ever; and much greater than the entire expenditure on many of our smaller wars. Such is the estimated cost of a single hour's fight between i tho British and the German fleets en gaged at anything like their full j strength. That this is no exaggerated estimate is proved by the fact that the Jutland Battle, in which only a portion of the two fleets took part, cost over forty millions, without counting the value of lives sacrificed in it. And, incred ible as such a statement must seem, it becomes intelligible when we con sider that a single well-directed shot can sink in a few minutes a battle ship that has cost more that two million pounds to build and equip. In the Jutland Battle we lost three battle-cruisers-the Queen Mary. In defatigable and Invincible-the aggre gate value of which exceeded £5,250,000. In additi...

THINGS TO KNOW. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 8 June 1917

THINGS TO KNOW. If curtains are allowed to dry thor oughly before being starched they will keep clean longer. Raisins kept in a covered dish will retain their moisture and freshness. If a little ammonia is added to the water in which silver or glassware is washed it brightens it wonderfully. When washing windows always use lukewarm water and a little starch, and you will get good results with little labor. Enamelled saucepans should always be hardened when new by being put into cold water in a larger vessel, brought slowly to the boil, and boiled fast for a few minutes. Don't put cold water into a boiling-hot enam elled pan. Brooms will last much longer if a loose cover of holiand or drill is made for each one to fit over the head. After use remove all the fluff from the bristles, button the cover on, and hang the broom head upwards in a cupboard. Soak brooms and brushes occasion ally; so treated they will last very much longer. Hot water cans should be turned upside down after use....

AUSTHALIA PLAYS THE GAME No. XXII. LESSONS FOR AUSTRALIANS FROM THE HISTORY OF THE PAST. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 8 June 1917

AUSTHAL,IA PL,AYS THE GAME' No. XXII. LESSONS FOR AUSTRALIANS FROM THE HISTORY OF THE PAST. Millenniums before white men sight ed Australia democracies in the old world had been born, had flourished and had decayed. In their love of na val adventure their success in com merce and colonisation, and their lib eral form of government, Athens and Great Britain had close analogies. Every Athenian freeman had a vote in the popular Assembly, ho served on its committees, acted when called up on as a n.agistrate, and took his turn as citizen-soldier. So long as Athens produced statesmen like Themisto i cles, Aristides, Ephialtes and Pericles, her trade expanded, her colonies in Sicily, Greece and Asia multiplied, and her art and literature grew so splen did as still to be the wonder of the woi'ld. Her little army routed the hordes of Persians at Marathon; her i fleet sank the Asiatic galleons at Sala mis; in the Peloponnesian war the wise strategy of Peric'es kept at bay the vastly superior ...

PARISH CHURCH REGISTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 8 June 1917

PARISH CHURCH REGISTERS. Every entry in a parish church re gister is a record of human interest. These ancient records are often a mine of information, and many dis putes have been settled by reference! to them. By Act of Parliament in 1538 the records of all baptisms, marriages, and burials were entrusted to the par ishes. By law a parchment book was purchased at the cost of each parish. Tlio entries were made weekly, and attested by the church-wardens. These register books were preserv ed in the parish chest, and secured by two or three heavy locks. Many of the ancient volumes have entirely dis appeared, others have perished by fire or floods, some were destroyed by rats, or dampness, and not a few have been stolen, probably for some under hand reason. Perhaps only a line or two, but those brief entries meant much to the family whose names are written therein. The registers at Hinderwell-the first portion of which are written in Latin-record that a plague of great severity visited...

CHAPTER XIX. Mr. Burton was in liis dressing room. Before him there was spread out a bewildering array o£ ties and socks; he was surveying tliem with interest, wondering possibly what would be Alma Beresford's favorite color. There was a knock at the door, and Watson, the second footman, ap peared with hot water. Mr. Burton looked up from his ties. "Come in! Come in, Watson," he said genially. "And close the door. I want j-our advice. Is this tie quite the latest?" Then as the man obeyed him, and came up to the dressing table, his manner changed suddenly, he bundled the ties and socks together and tossed them into a drawer un ceremoniously. "Well, have you any thing to report?" he questioned sharp ly. "Nothing much, sir," Watson an swered. He had entirely the obse quious manner of the well-trained gen tlemen's servant. "But I understand you wished to speak to me." "Um. So I did-so I did." Mr. Bur ton went on quickly. "It strikes me we are wasting our time down here, you and me, Mr. ...

War Prices. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 8 June 1917

War PHoes. I THERE is a distinct possibility of the price of tobacco, cigarettes and cigars going up shortly owing to the difficulty of obtaining supplies. Owing to brewing companies having iccently decided to in crease the price of heer by 7/6 per 56 gallons, the publicans suggest not to in crease the price of beer to the public but to provide smaller glasses. They will probably substitute a 120Z. mug for the 1402. pne, and a IOOZ mug for the uoz. one Whisky costing above 70/ per dozen wholesale price will be retailed at per nobbier.

Small Subscriptions Wanted [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 8 June 1917

Small Subscriptions Wanted SMALL subscriptions are an important factor in thB success of our war finances The outstanding feature of tha recent British "Victory" War Loan waa the great number of small subscriptions which helped to swell the loin to record pro portions. The bauks, financial and otlior corpora tions have subscribe'! liberally to the various Australian War Loan?, but it is absolutely necessary that miiiy thousands of small subscriptions from the general public should bo received to bring the amount up to tho sum necessary to meet our war obligations. Subscriptions to our War Loans are among tho world's hest investment?, and have a patriotic flavor. Such a subscription is not a sacrifice. It is a duty and incidentally remunerates the subscriber handsomely.
