ADMINISTERING MEDICINE TO DOGS. DEW CLAWS IN DOGS. DOCKING TERRIERS. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 24 January 1914

~ADMINISTERINC MEDICINE TO DOGS. DEW CLAWS IN DOGS. DOCKING TERRIERS.\ "In his new book on, dogs, .Mr. F. T. Barton, M.;T.C.V.S., gives.some useful. in formation on canile mnatters. He says:- :The administration of medicine to tile dog is not so easily done properly, as many people suppose; in fact, :'very few inexperienced persons cmn satisfactorily give a dog medicine. Some dogs are comparatively easy to medicine, whereas, others can only be persuaded to take it by sheer force,- which occasionally does a great deal more harm than the medicine is likely to do good.. The size of a dog is no criterion as to the ease, or otherwise, with which the medicine may. be administered, as proved by experience. Somne of the most refractory. dogs in this respect have been. pug~iahd Pome'drianians, whilst .the Converde n6t uncoinmonly applies to St. Berinard, Great Danes, inastif~lts, retrieve'rs, "pobinters, setters, spahiels, &c.

REALISM OF THE CINEMA. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 24 January 1914

REALISM OF THE CINEMA. There is almost no end to the amount of expense, time and ingenuity which may profitably be put into the construction of a moving picture film.

Gellis Island and Reef at Tammit Sta ion-a Dangerous Point for Navigation on the Murray. 3 and 4. Mulligan's Creek, Moira Park, near Mellool. 5. The Tairnit Rocks. G.

And such expensive films pay because one may be exhibited for months to two or three audi- ences, a day in great cities and small towns, in many places simultaneously, and at an advanced price over the poorer and cheaper films.

THE ORIGIN AND EVOLUTION OF MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 31 January 1914

THE ORICIN AND -EVOLUTION OF MAN. BY .DR. J.- LEON WILLTAMS, "SCIENTJFl C AMERICAN." The main feature of the Darwinian theory of evolution are variation and natural selection. The causes . of varia tion are. still obscure, but the work ing of natural. selection is patent ienough to any observant and think i .ig persoil. The nature of the environment exercises a profound modifying effect on species, and it is' highly probable that this factor in eýaolution played a much more important part 'in the past than in the .present.' But all of these factors of the `Darwinian theory work in a very slow way. Dr. Alfred Russel Wallace told me,,in an interview I had with hinr last :Juii;v that he did .not believ-e a single' new species had come into existence during the .whole Pleistocene eri,, and this, according .to Penck, the great German geologist, covers a minimumn period. of 500,000 years and may possibly .extend to 1,500,00000. 1.-Dr. WToodwari's restorationi of 'thie.:itdown -skull.

SOCIAL CIRCLE SOCIETY LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 31 January 1914

S11 4ScUALcL SOCIETY LETTER. Dear Yell, .While a great many well-known people have, either started or are about to start on ambitious overseas' tours, it is satisfac tory to find that there is -quite as much doing at the Tourists' Bureau as at the offices of the "big tickeit" agents. A liumber of noteworthy improvements are bringing our local 'beauty spots and plea. )'tre places into closer touch with the large majority, with whom time as well is money are matters of much moment. We got a little proof of this the other day, when we saw an admirable motor coach piying between the Upper Fern Tree (.ully station and the gully itself. Certainly the distances between those two places is less than half a mile-if you take the right track--out no one who has seen an un 'f-rtunate party of grown-ups, hampered with all the impedimenta of a picnic, trudging the said distance on a hot morn ing, will be inclined to envy them their task. Broadly speaking, the enterprise of the motor coach in ques...

DESERT COAST OF PERU. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 31 January 1914

DESERT COAST. OF .PERU. 1This part of the world which 'we call Peru," to quote an old.- Spanish writer, "is very remarkable and contains in it strange properties it never rains, thunders, snows or hails in all this coast, which is a matter worthy of admiration." Peru lies, nevertheless entirely within the "tropics, though it differs so greatly from most other tropical regions. Nothing strikes the traveller voyaging soutlhward froni. Panama, especially during the later months of the year, so much as the remarkable meteorological change he experiences when he passes Cape Blanco, the southern head 'land of the Gulf of Guayaquil. All the way thither he feels stifled and overcome by the heat; but at that point he suddenly sails into a temperate and delicious clime. His landscape alters also amazingly. He emerges from one clothed with .the exube rant .verdure so associated with the tro pics, into a rainless and barren descrt. Except where it has been possible to em ploy. irrigation, no sp...

THE COST OF MISGOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 31 January 1914

THE COST OF MISC19YERNWMNT., Another record has been -made in Con sole, the premier stock being sold on the Stock Exchange at £71 18/9 per £100. When in 1905-1906 the Radical party took control of the destinies of England, Consols stood at 88-89.. Since then they have fallen under the unhealthy effects of Socialisti.c legislation, and thousands of peqple, including many Savings Bank con tributors, have seen their capital slowly dwindling away. Banks and other great financial and in dustrial corporations which have' invested large reserves in Consols have, year by year been compelled to' find large sums on their balance sheets to make up for the dlepreciation. In other words, many millions of invest ments once representing solid cash assets haive simply melted into thin air. On. the lowest computation this loss amounts to £120,000,000. · Not only is there this loss to be con sidered, but were it necessary for th~ .Go *ernmxent to1orroi':fresh;'caital they ,would on the price rlreched...

MUSICAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 31 January 1914

MUSICAL' NOTES. Ca iso, the eminent Italian tenor, has written a. book on "How to Sing." The suresi way suggested sto deter mine the real character. of a. voice is to see .on what' notes' words can be most easily pronounced. An ini portant point in singing is what is called the "attacl' of the tone.- "In general this may be described as the relative position of the throat and 'tongue and the. quality of voice' as the tone is begun." Andl a seri ous fault of'fliany singer, is "that they at tack the tone either from the chest or the throat. Even with robust health the finest voice cannot. resist this." To have the at tack true and pure one must consciously try to' open the throat not only in front, but from behind, for the throat is the door through which, the, voice must pass, and if it is not sufficiently open it is use less to attempt to get out a full, round 'tone; also the throat .?s the outlet and in let, for the breath, and if it is closed the voice' will: seek other channels? ...
