FOOD IN WATER. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 13 March 1913
FOOD IN WATER. It sounds paradoxical, but for men and animals water is the chief food. The ave age amount of food eaten by a human being is six pounds daily and of this no lofewer than four and a half pounds is liquid. Every article of food contains a large percentage of water. Melons, for instance, Con tain R9 per cent. A pound of grain is the eqiuivalent of two tons of water used by the growing of the wheat, and a pound of beef thie equivalent of fifteen to thirty tons of water consumed by the ox chiefly in the form of food. Therefore, the adult who consumes 2001fb. of brend, -and. beet a yoar;=ac-. tually consumes something like a ton of water in drink. While the portrait painters of Eng land have increased enormously of re cent years, the photographers have grown at a yet quicker rate. Every man his own camera Is a simple the ory of life, which will soon be put into practice. That unfortunate crea ture known as a public man cannot leave his hone without being con fronted by i ma...

ARCTIC COLD. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 13 March 1913
ARCTIC COLD. It is dillicult for the Itglishman to form any conception of the degree of cold represented by the 80deg. of frost sometimes experienced In parts of Russia. Sir Leopold:M'Clintock tells us ,how, In one of his Arctic ex peditions a sailor was foolish enough to do some outdoor work at precise ly this temperature. His hands froze and when he rushed into the cabin and plunged one of them into a basin of cold water, so cold was the hand that the water was instantly con verted into a block of ice. "At -25deg.,. Dr. Klane says, "the moustacho and under-lip form pendu lous heads of dangling ice. Put out your tongue, and it instantly freezes to this icy crusting. Your chin has a trick of freezing to your upper jaw by the luting aid of your heard. My eyes have often been so glued as to show that even n wink was unsafe." During a theatrical perfolrmance, given by the crew of his ship at an inside temperature of--3ideg., "the condensantion was so excessive that we could barely see ...
