Toot Your Own Horn. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 30 March 1912

Toot Your Own- Horn.? A hen is not supposed to have much common sense or tact, yet every time she lays an egg she cackles forth the fact. A rooster hasn't got a lot of in tellect .to show, but none the less moost roosters have enough good sense to crow. The mule the most despised of beasts, has a presistent way of letting people know he's around by his insistent bray. The busy little bees. they buzz, bulls bellow and cows moo, and watch-dogs bark and ganders quack and doves and pigeons coo. The lpeacock spreads his tail and squawks; pigs squeal and robins sing, and even serpents know en ough to hiss before they sting. But man, the greatest masterpiece that Nature could devise, will often stop' and hesitate before he'll advertise I SWhen you write, to advertisers just mention that you sa? their advt. in this paper. We'll be grateful if you will do so.

MEASURING EYE JUMPS. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 30 March 1912

MEASURING EYE JUMPS. We know that an eye at ordinary wading distance takes in about lin. If a line at a time, and that in reads lg a line of an ordinary book tht ye makes five or six (more or less, according to the length of the line) iistinct jumps. But how many know what direction the eye takes in imak Ing these jumps ? And, as the move vments are so very minute and rapid .ow have they been studied ? A very ingenious means has been employed as follows : A beam of light is thrown apon the corner of the'eye under ex amination, and this beam is reflected by the cornea on to a photographic plate. As the eye moves in reading, the reflected beam also moves, and upon developing the plate, which is also kept moving, a zigzag line is (ound. A study of such photograph Ic tracings shows that the eyes, in turning back to pick up the next line have some dificulty in so doing. The longer the line of print the greaten thi effort, and for this reason we mlay, conclude that a narrow line is better...

APPLAUSE HEARD 180 MILES. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 30 March 1912

APPLAUSE HEARD 180 MILES. --+- One hundred and eighty miles away resounded the thunderous applause accorded a concert given in the Pen suacola Navy Yard. It was hand clapping by wireless. The large wireless -transmitter station is located near the bandstand and at tire end of a selection by the navy band, the Do Forest operators opened wide the large spark gap as well as the doors of the sound-proof spark muffler, and then depressing the Morse key, sent forth a succes sion of long, loud dashes hoard Ior streets. This 'low frequency'! spark and its rattle, following upon the last notes of the music, resembled an outburst of applause from the vast concourse of clapping hands, but sevenfold louder than any over heard before. The bandmaster, startled, amused, and impressed, responded with the one encore of the evening. As it transpired afterwards, the operator at the station at Now Or -leasa heazd this;eletra.utoaent?uýlam. precisely when it was given' ?i8O miles away. One of the greate...

Mornington from Various Points. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 30 March 1912

Mornington from Various Points. TO TUHE DITOR. Sir,-Another drawback to Morn ington's progress is the inadequate train service. Are two trains a day each way likely to help tc build the place and cause people to come and reside in it ? I think not. Why is it that public meet ings are not called, and agitations aroused, deputations arranged, in fluence sought, and a determined effort made to get a better seirvice ? Surely there are enough represen tative men in the district who could easily obtain influence, and thus unitedly press the needs of the district upon those in authority, and keep at it until justice is obtained. And the thoughts has often crossed my mind, Mr Editor, are the railways constructed for the benefit of the public; and are they the property of the public, or are they a gigantic mirror set up that the people may grow weary in observing and contemplating the benefits that are to be in store one thousand and more years hence?. ..---.-. _ _..

SORRENTO. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 30 March 1912

SORRENTO. The death of another pioneer of the district took place last week, in the person of Mr John Watts. He was for many years ranger on the back beach under the late Hon. Geo. Coppin. He was buried in the Sorrento cemetery, and the funeral was very largely attended from all parts of the district, Rev. Mr Rodda officiating at the grave. Mr Watts leaves a widow and grown up family. His son, Mr H. Watts, is the President of the A.N..A. Branch. A public meeting was held to discuss the practicability of get ting easier access to the cemetery, as the present road is a disgrace to the community, and often vehicles get stuck up at funerals. It was agreed to petition the council in the matter, asking for a report from their engineer on the merits of the new proposed road, and also a report on the present one. Word has been received that our popular State school head master, Mr Kemp, has accepted promotion, and will be leaving the district just after Easter. The annual regatta on Easter ...
