An Oft-Told Tale. Tho ialo of the loss of the Birken head has often been related, but can never be too often told. Tho troop transport left Simon's Buy ou February 20, 1852, bound for I'ort Elizabeth. Seven hours after leaving Capetown she struck a rock, and twenty-five minutes later all that was visible was her masts, crowded with despairing survivors. Among the troops on board (drafts sent out to tho Kaffir War, then raging), who gave a still unfor gotten example of calm discipline and unflinching courngc under such terrible circumstances, were some of Uio Twelfth Lancers under Captain Hond-^heldon, a veteran who still I Ordered to got tho horses over- J *YT..sV tV.'-umV ~ t uv" which, hovering around the doomed vessel, added a now terror to the situat ion.

Only Recently Abolished. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 3 July 1914

In the Wilmington Gaol the pil lory was on a platform, erected nbovo the whiping-post, making a two-storey aflair. There arc aper tures for two prisoners, so that they rnav keep company in their misery. It has been named "Susan." Sentences have been imposed fre quently requiring both pillory and whipping*. In such cases the pri soner was made to stand one hour with neck and hands held fast in tho vice, aud then taken out for the whipping.

Weather Made to Order. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 3 July 1914

Weather Made to Order. Is it possible to make weather to order V In the opinion of that emi nent scientist. Sir Oliver I.odge, it is by no means beyond the powers of man, ami lie advances the sug gestion that exploration of the up per regions would result in dis coveries which would enable us to control the weather. The latter, he contends, is merely a matter of electrical conditions, and the ingrcd ients necessary for Tine tint! it iirp«.tivo chttir^o -upon tJin earth's surface. JVfuch, ho sa yn, could be done by placing a. copper rod round the earth parxillel to t lie Equntor and ilischar^lnRr millions of amperes (units) from this rod.

Food Reform. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 10 July 1914

Food Reform. The normal. h.viHhy innn quite rightly does not think much about what ho cats so long as it tastes fairly good nnd thorn is plenty of it. There are reasons, however, | why even iie should tnke an interest in the question of diet reform-a question which has become so ncute of Into years. The grcnt movement of scientific research and social study iiavy both made perfectly clear the fact that the majority of the people are not as healthy nnd as efiicient ns they might bo, and one of the root, causes of this is that they do not obtain suflicirnt- food, or that they do uot obtain tho right kind of food. Tho last statement applies not. only to tho poorer classes, but also, as has hem fully shown by Chittenden, Hindhede, and others in recent years the classes with ample means. The great increase in tho frequency of appendicitis, from a few scattered cases fifty years ago to tho thou sands of the present day ; the per sistence of the cancer plague ; the con t jn ued pmport ion ...

THE FIRST PAINLESS EXTRACTION. Horace Welts, a dentist, of Hart ford, Connecticut, F.S.A., is . gener ally credited with the first use of "laughing" gas" as an anaesthetic.

Worth Remembering. Jinny of the litllo problems which we encounter in daily life may be overcome if we but give them a moment's serious thought. And once we discover a method of doing a thing nentlv or of saving labour, wo should remember juNt how we did it, for tlie experience will prove useful to us again some day.

Cause of Earthquakes. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 10 July 1914

Cause of Earthquakes. The prevalent, irten that earth quakes are chieMy caused by vol canic erupt ions or explosions is now held by scientists to be wron^. Professor Milne-one of our greatest authorities on tho subject says : '. While admitting n few small earth quakes to be volcanic, in their ori gin, we recognise the majority of these disturbances as th^ result. of a suddon fracturing 01 tho rocky crust under the influence of bwJinp:." This-bending is brought about, by the gradual contraction of the e-nrth, which is held to be the chief cause of mountain building.
