Tests' Prove. Coffee Iis Beneficial, -----+--- The fDopartment of Psychology a',. Columbia University has proved by. a series of actual experiments that the popular belief in the benefit of coloee at breakfast is well founded, Sixteen persons of both sexes and of different ages were formed into two squads, The members of the first, called the "caffeine squad," re colved' eovery day fronm one to six grains of caffeine in capsules (a cup of ordinarily strong coffee contains about two grains), The members of the second, or "control squad," re colved capsules containing non* stimulating sugar of milk, or fruit syrups similar in taste and appear ance to the caffeine solution. So that, during the tests, no person in either squad knew whether he or site ,was receiving caffeine or not. On certain days the caffeine squad received control doses-that is, sub stitutes for coffee, and on some days no dose whatever, the elabo. rate system by which the drug was administered or withheld making it p...

OUR CHILDREN WHAT THEY SAY. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 4 July 1914
`OUR CHILDREN WHAT THEY. SAY. On a railway train approaohing one of the Western cities a company of girle in holiday attire noticed a desperate looking man in charge of an oficer. Some of them spoke of him as a gaol-bird, and looked with scorn at the prisoner, One looked with pitying eye, and whispered, "Poor follow I How hard to be deprived of liberty l" Solecting one of the most beautiful and fragrant of a bunch of roses she crossed over to his seat and with a smile dropped the flower upon his lap. Tears came to his eyes, and, taking the rose in his handoufled fingers, he said, in a husky voiee, "God bless you, miss, for your kindness to a poor castaway, May you never know what it is to be friendless, It is many a day since I heard a word of cheer from human lips." An aged man who witnessed the scene told the girls the prisoner had been a soldier, and when in the army had learned to drink, and became a cast off because of his habits, and was then on his way to serve a five years' ...

The Matches. GILENHUNTIYvCHELTENHA M The above teams met last Satur. day on the ground of the former at MIast Caulfield. It is a nice ground and was in splendid order. Perfect weather was again the order of things, a bright sunny afternoon, and just sufficient breeze to make things pleasant for both players and onlookers without unduly Interfer ing with the play. The last meet inag of these teams resulted in a victory for Cheltenham, who scored 12.16 to Glenhuntly's 3.2, but the latter was considered a much im proved team, and on their own grouud likely to be formidable op. ponents, The teams were:-Glou. huntly, Gardiner (c), Voklander, Eyres, Hogan, Long, Burke, Sarkies Gillion, Bernie, Osburge, Sargeant, Yeomans, Phillips 2, Bishop, Kettle Patterson, Horusey.

LATE FOOTBALL [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 4 July 1914
LATE FOOTBALL As will be seen by the scores Carrum had a splendid win against Heatherton last Saturday. Heatherton played with three men short for a greater portion of the time, and the following five good players were absent:-Kelly, Lebon Norris, Follett and Stone The scholars attending the State Schools at Mordialloc and Moor. abbin played a match on the Moor abbin Park ground last Friday, and No dianloc won by one point, the scores were DVordiallcc 3,8 to Moor abbin 3.7. The goal kickers for Mordlalloc were, Robinson, A, Kemmis, Feorguson. The record score of the Associa tion now rests with Oheltenham. who on a previons Saturd y scored 260 points to Heatherton's 1. This is a goal kickers competition with a vengeance, and provides very little encouragement for a team' like Heatherton, who have stuck to their guns for more than one sea son, knowing that they had very little hope of being premiers. They are like the perservering tortoise, and Heatherton we anticipate will keep slowl...

Why He Blushed. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 4 July 1914
, ?lhy Ira luashed, A. four.year old miss created a good deal of consternslicon, not unmixed with amutement, in a small social circle lately. She had been ot a visit to her grandfathor, ancd while there was in the habit of piyinrg with him as he lay, half asleep, on the sofT. One day as her chubby fingers gl led caressingly over the old gentleman's scant locks, he murmured drowsily, in reply to some infantile remark ' Yes, I ant your old bald.heasded graifdfather.'

THE MAIL SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 4 July 1914
.THE MAIL SERVICE. The question of Australia's mail ;ervico is one that is constantly aris lug, and the amount of space and la bour required to convoy the weekly mail from the United KIingdon to the (.omminwatlth, and vice versa, is uonstantly and rapidly increasing, Ten years ago, fifty tons cubic mneasure.ment was considered ample space to convey the weekly budget,' and now ten times that amount is hardly sufficient, while at the present rate of increase it is believed .that further increase will soon be found necessary, The companies express great dis aetisfaction at 'the absence of any ex pansion of the grants, while they em* phasise the fact that the expenses are increasing with the growth of bulk,' that the Suez Oanal dues lay an ap. preciabloe weight on the companies' shoulders, and that the terms are made more onerous with every fresh contract, During the sittings of the Dominions Commission in London, Sir Rides Haggard recently suggested that s quicker route might in the fu...
FOREST PROTECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 4 July 1914
FOREST PROTECTION. The ruthless destruction of valuable timber in which the early pioneers indulged, perhaps has its excuse in the fact that quickly cleared land wee. indispensible for their requirements, while the absence of an extensive local market prevented any fore thought in the direction of planting seedlings to supply the demands of future generations. Now-a-days any such excuse is impossible; for even in our young land we are' unfortun\ ately beginning to.visualise the Ne mises which attends the reckless des truction of growing thihgs, Climate, and. the all-important rainb fall average has been completely re volutionised, times without number, in the old world, by the wholesale slaughter of-innocent trees; while in Australia much of the herbage in the pastoral districts has been handled unnecessarily cruelly in this respect. Surely-though too slowly-Austra lia is begidning to realise the dan gers which await a tree famine ; and In consequence the study of afforesta tion is ...

To the Editor. Sir,-I do not know, neither do I care, what Mr J. A. Boyd's political orinion may be, but I do know that he is not a supporter of sport in any shape or form, He has refused to donate on more than one occasion and this is suflioient for me. I did not have a vote when he was elected. I have on this occasion, and will use it if I gethalf a ohanoe.-Youis, eto. .FOOTBALLER Mentone, 26/6/'14.
To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 4 July 1914
To tho Editor. Sir,--In a recent issue you write " that Mr J. A. Boyd is likely to be automatically pitchforked into the position of represontative for Hoenty.' This, I am sorry to have to agree with. All the same, it seems pro. posterous that an electorate like Henty, containing as it must so many thousands of Liberals (as apart from the Liberal and Consoevative sections should have to put up with such an extreme Conservative as J. A. Boyd) As you are aware, he has boon be fore the electors of Victoria for many years, tried and measured in many 'ways, with the result that not one Liberal action or causa has ever bIeon traced to him or helped by him. Yet he is to represent uo. If some gentleman with .Liberal leanings were to coma forxward, and a few good committees formed, it ought to be possible to shift this barnholo from the Federal seat. We have no need to fear the Labor voters, as their full strongth was ex pended last time, and the other voters outnumbered them fully two to on...
