AUSTRALIA PLAYS THE GAME No. XXIII.. VICTORIA NEGLECTS HER DUTY. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 15 June 1917

AUSTRALIA PLAYS THE GAME . No. XXIII.. VICTORIA NEGLECTS HER DUTY". Victoria needs to wake up from her lethargy in regard to. recruiting. Of all the States, she is giving the poor est results. As a whole, the Com monwealth was asked to provide 1G,500 volunteers monthly, but little more than one-third of that number is coming forward. Victoria, instead of giving 4570, which is her proper monthly quota, hardly provides 1000, not a quarter of the number wanted. In none of the States is the required quota nearly obtained, but in West Australia the results are the best. Victoria contents herself with remain ing right down at the bottom of the list. A very energetic volunteering campaign has been carried on for five months, but all efforts have fail ed to sliake Victoria up. In case this may have been the Fault of organisa tion, working methods have now been placed on a different footing, and vig orous efforts are being made to put more life and enthusiasm into the cause. But it is realis...

THE TOILER'S EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 15 June 1917

THE TOILER'S EDUCATION. In his book, "Child and Country," Will Levington Comfort, author of many serious novels and a contributor to numerous magazines, deals with his own ideals and beliefs on the subject of education as regards workmen. In one part of his interesting volume he says: "I would support every plan or dream of education, and none other, that seeks to find out for the youth his life-work. I would call upon every workman personally to help, and urge for every . community the good ness of its products and not the richness of its markets. I would put the world's premium upon fine work manship of the hand or brain or spirit, and a stiff pressure upon the multipli cation of these products by mechan ical means, for we have too many common things and so few fine things. I would inculcate in the educational ideal, first of all, that in every man there Is a dream, just as there is a soul." Niece: Uncle, they say there are more marriages of blondes than of brunettes. Why is it,' ...

THE OPTOPHONE. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 15 June 1917

THE OPTOPHONE. At the "Rontgen Society's meeting, Dr. E. E. Fournier d'Albe, D.Sc., lec tured on the properties and applica tions of selenium. He said that.the peculiarity of light action on seleni um could not be due to heat, as had been suggested,, and-he believed that some kind of ionisation theory would be propounded as a final solution of i the whole question. Selenium was actually capable of discovering light too faint to be visible to the eye. He calculated that, with the aid of selen ium, one ought tobe able to discover stars three magnitudes " lower than those visible in the ordinary way. The usual limit for naked-eye vision was about the sixth magnitude, so that with selenium one ought to be able to obtain the ninth magnitude, and selenium would keep this start over the eye wherever optical contrivances might be used. He had been able to make a star record itself chronogra phically,-and even ring a'"bell in its ' passage, which was quite a simple thing to do, considering t...

CHAPTER XXI. .Barbara!" ! "Eric!" . In spite of all Barbara's resolutions as to the frigidity of her demeanor when she should meet Captain Eric V^bart again, she could not repress the cry, she could not keep back the bright wave of color that flooded her pale cheeks. The big day of the Norcaster festi vities had come. The tenantry had been entertained to dinner, their wives and daughters were enjoying a L tea and a concert. Later in the evening there would be a dance for the house party, and any neighbors within reach. The Barringtons had CODM up early to help Lady Norcaster with the first part of the programme, but up till now Barbara had managed to avoid Eric. She had noted, how ever, that he made anything but an attentive lover; Alma had attempted a little proprietary air with him, only to find herself frustrated bv his utter lack of response, and Barbara in the distance had felt a faint thrill of triumph. Now, however, Barbara had hurried off to fetch a shawl for a portly dame w...

A STORY OF THE UHLANS. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 15 June 1917

A STORY OF THE UHLANS. German Sack o; or:g:nali:y is well shown in the selection of some pro minent military terms. The title "Kaiser" is itself a borrowed plume. Whatever value it may happen to possess really belonged to Franz Jo sef, the recently deceased Emperor of Austria, who traced his descent, through the house of Hapsburg, from" . the Caesars of the Holy Roman Em ' pire. But the German "All-Highest" ( has stolen, the specious sobriquet, ap parently, without protest from its ' rightful owner. iThe term "Uhlan" has also been borrowed and annexed. It was orig . inall w used by the Tartars to desig i nate a species of light cavalry, arrn 1 ed with lances on which were carried small colored Sags, meant to frighten the horses of enemies. And the title was adopted from Tartary by the Prussians. Since the first few weeks of the war y?e -have not heard, much about the Prussian Uhlans. But in earlier wars they played a characteristically rough and brutal part. In the Franco-German War...

BALDNESS AND CONSUMPTION. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 15 June 1917

BALDNESS AND CONSUMPTION. There are advantages in ' almost everything. Even the bald-headed man has something to be thankful for. It is & curious belief, held by many people, that you will never find a bald headed man in danger of dying from consumption. Bald-headed men are said to seldom suffer from consumption,, and that a tendency to baldness is assurance that the dreaded scourge will pass him whose, thatch" gro^ys thin. At first glance it would seem ab surd to argue that a man's hair is in dicative of his immunity from dis ease, hut a- well-known doctor re cently; declared, that in the.five years during which" he seriously added a record of his patients' hair, or lack of it, his case, cards have failed to show a single instance of "bald" being en tered upon the card of a consumptive. - He had under treatment more than 700 cases, and he makes the further -statement that in a census of more than 5000 tuberculosis cases he failed *.o discover a single sufferer who was baid....
