METALS THAT NEED HOLIDAYS. , It will perhaps bo a revelation to tunny to learn that motals suffer from fatigue as* much as man, and feel equ ally strengthened by a holiday. Kfpoa Cud experiments havo proved tiiiit steel and wrought iron deteriorate, under constant strain or vibration, and if they aro denied tho necessary rest tho time comes when, liko tho human machine, they collapso altogether, Lord Kelvin has proved tTmt iron wires kept in a stato of osoillation dur ing the week act quite differently after a Sunday's rest; and that an iron bar subjected 4o strain will riso 10 per cent/, in ela&ticiy after a throo weeks' holiday.

WIDOWS WEDDING LORE. 4 It may not be well known, but thsre is a peculiar etiquette attach ing to the ceremony of a woman's see on .1 wedding. It is possible for her, should cir cumstances permit, to marry as orten ms sho chooses, but, only once in lu*r life is she allowed to carry orange blossoms. This is when she stands at the altar for the first time. On the same principle, it is not correct for a widow to wear white at her sccond mariia^e ceremony. Cream, grey, heliotrope-indec.1, any colour she prefers-is permissible. The bride of experience also should never wear a Ions bridal veil with or wilhout a bonnet. Neither is she allowed to wear a wreath 0:1 the short veil which etiquette permits her to don. She may, however, carry a bouquet, but this should not be composed of white flowers. It is considered better taste for her to match the colour oi her wedding gown with the Loval decorations. The "bridesmaid" of a wid.aw alsq is not called a bridesmaid, but a Mmaid of honour."

THE DISAPPEARING WHALE. [Newspaper Article] — Omeo Standard and Mining Gazette — 9 June 1914

THE DISAPPEARING WHALE. The practical extinction of the Basque and Greenland whale fish eries has abundantly proved. sny,s the thirteenth annual report on fisheries issued by the Board of Agriculture and Fisheries, the clan ger of the total extinction of the whale through "over-fishing." It must be remembered, too, that thia result was brought about by moons of the open boat and hand-harpoon methods, which arc now obsolete. ' The Greenland whale was a com paratively sluggish and timid ani? ma!, whose capture by the method referred to presented little diUiculty whereas the rorquals and other spa des were not only too swift, but too dangerous, to be attacked in the finmo manner as the "right" whale. With the introduction, however, of the harpoon with, explosive shell, discharged from a cannon mounted in the bows of a steamer, the con ditions were entirely changed, and the species formerly immune from at tack could now be hunted with im punity. The result of this revolution in the cond...

THE KING OF THE BORNEO ' JUNGLE. L. Of nil tho animals which inhabit the rionso Borneo jungle, Iho apo known us the orang-outang is easily king. It is a most inter usting sight to watch an orang-ou tang make its way through the jungle. It walks slowly along the larger branches in a stooping alti tude, caused by tho length of its arms ami tho shortness of its legs. It chooses those branches which in termingle with those of a neigh bouring tree, on approaching which it stretches out its long arms, and, grasping the houghs opposite, seems first to shake them as if to tost their strength, and then deliberately to swing itself across to the next branch, which it walks along as be fore. It does not jump or spring as mon keys usually do, and never ap pears to hurry itself, unless in dan ger. ^ Yet, in spite of its appar ently slow movements, it gets along far quicker than a man running through the forest beneath. The tradition of the Dyaks, the pi rate men of Borneo, is that there is no an...
