An Easy Experiment. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 20 February 1914

An Easy Eatporiment. A very pretty effect. ltmy, be pro* tJuccd by causing' u candle. to burn almost immersed '' in \ water in u tumbler. The experiment, which is simple, is done in the following manner , Insert a nail—rnol ton heavy—in the lower end of- a short candle, •in order to make., that end heavier, und place the whole in tc glass con* tnining enough water, to ruuch tho upper edge of the candle without .•wetting the wicki , At -first' thought nothing seems stranger than to., expcct *. u candle .to burn in such., a situation ; but it , .does bum. and the reason is simple enough. ' As tho candle bums, it grows lighter nod. lighter;- so that the lighted end. always remains above the surface of the water. Moro'ovor,. the ^outside oL.tlie can* die, being cooV. tfttl melt much ipore slowly than Usual. and the flame wiU rnukc-*u little hollow in the centre. This .hollow place also helps in making *tko candle iloat, and preserves the -wick from contact with the '- water; Thus the ca...

AN ARCTIC TRAGEDY. The-story of the discovery of Ihfl Inst relies of Sir .Tolin Franklin iind his companions, who perished amid the Arctic snows, is familiar to every Englishman. An equally poitjnant tale of Polar adventure and heroism is told t»y a scrap of paper piously preserved in the Uoyal Library at Copenhagen. It was discovered in 15)08 in a cavern among the wild -and inhospitable wastes of '•Ljimberi.'s Laud." Three Danes—linden.

123 Convictions. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 20 February 1914

123 Convictions. A. nut for modern criminologists to oraok was in evidenco at a north suburban court the other day, when u woman, GO years of age, was charged with being "druuk and disorderly." She admitted the offence, and, also the fact that she had been previously convicted 123 times at the local court—out side hor record at the. City Court mostly for drunkonness and smash ing windows—hotel bar ones for preference. Documents relating to her career showed that she be gan coming before the oourcs in 1870, and is still going strong. The period covered by hor giving way to intemperanco covers quite an epoch of chequered Victorian history. Through the Maritime strike in tho abovo named year, tlio bank collapses in 1893, tho bringing about of Federation, the railway strike in 1903, this wo man has regularly been making her bow to tho bonch. Moreover, during hor protracted indulgence in tippling, three changes have taken place in respect to tho Brit ish throne. None of her offences were...

Rowing Sparklets. TRIAL FOURS. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 20 February 1914

Rowing Sparklets. TRIAL I'OUKS. On Wednesday afternoon last Trial Fours were held under the auspices of the Naganibie Rowing Club, the hone of contention, for which there was keen competition, being for trophies, valued at ;C1 each, with a coxswain's trophy valued at 10s, presented by Mr A. E. Gadd. Six crews originally entered for the contest, but owing to uuforseen circumstances a couple of rowers were unable to attend, thus reducing the number to five. In regard to these events it would be much more satisfactory to all concerned if a start was made at the appointed hour, as it would then give ample time for the two crews that happen to meet in the final to have a decent rest before the struggle for the much coveted honors. Then, again, many of the competitors are only young oars men, who cannot lay claim to being in the pink of condition, and as the trials throughout the contest are invariably of a most strenuous nature, it is hardly fair to these boys, to say nothing of the olde...

TROPICAL DISEASES RE- t SEARCH WORK. The extreme isolation ami the hot climate of Northern and Central Aws tralia tend to make that portion ol the Commonwealth peculiarly liable to attack by tropical anil snb-tropi cal diseases.
