ORIGIN OF CHILDREN'S BOOKS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 21 May 1910
ORIGIN OF CHILDREN'S BOOKS. 'Three Blind Mice' is a music book of 1690. , ? . 'A Froggie Would a-Wooihg Go', was licensed in 165.0. 'Little Jack Horner' is older than the seventeenth century. 'Pussy Cat, Pussy Cat, Where Have You Been?' dates from the reign of QUeen Elizabeth. 'Boys and Girls, Come Out to Play,' dates from Charles II., as does 'Lucy Locket Lost Her Pocket.' 'Old Mother Hubbard,' 'Goosey, Goosey Gander,' and 'Old Mother Goose,' apparently date back to the sixteenth century. 'Cinderella,' 'Jack the Giant Kill er,' 'Blue Beard,' and 'Tom Thumb' were jgiven to the world in Paris in 1697. The author was Charles Per rault. 'Humpty Dumpty was a bold bad baron who lived in the days of King John, and was tumbled from power. His history was put into a riddle, the meaning of which was an egg. 'The Babes in the Wood' was founded on an actual crime committed in Norfolk, near Wayland Wood, in the fifteenth century. 'An old house in the neighborhood is still pointed out, upon a ma...
STUDY SELF-CONTROL. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 21 May 1910
- STUDY SELF-CONTROL. If you are naturally hot-tempered, study self-'con,trol. Keep up that study till temper gusts can be stifled at Will. '? . ; When you feel yourself getting, as the boys call it, 'hot under the col lar,' bite your tongue or anything to keep that heat from bursting forth. Loss of temper generally means loss of friends, and of self-respect as well. No matter if you 'are 'mad' clear through, so long as it does not reach your tongue. The pent-up fires of this old globe never yet harmed anybody — while they stayed*- pent-up.
NEVER CONFESS. How a French Trial Differs from a British. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 21 May 1910
NEVER CONFESS. How a French Trial Differs from a British. Nothing, could have brought out ? more clearly the great difference be- j tween the procedure of French law I courts and that of our own than the | trial of Madame Steinheil. Nothing could be more cold, 'calm, and deadly than a murder trial at the Old Bailey; but at the same time, and probably because of its very calmness, there is an icy horror about the whole affair that only those who have witnessed such -a trial can . realise. The scenes in the Paris courts re cently were typical of . a great French trial, and, for all its hysteria, probably the effect was much less agonising to the onlookers than a similar trial in London would 'have been. The instinct of the theatre is, of course, in very nearly everything that happens in France. Everyone plays to the gallery, and when this gallery hap pens to be the jury in a murder trial, prisoner, judge and counsel are all prepared to go to the most wildly fan tastic lengths in order...
Proved. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 21 May 1910
Proved. Sandy had taken Jeanie to the vil lage fair. They had seen all the 'free shows,' but there was a cinemato graph entertainment for which a charge was made, and which the lady, wanted to see. 'Winna ye ta' me?' she said, ner suasively. ' 'Tisna but a bawbee.' At the door, however, Sandy dis covered that the price of admission was 3d. each for adults. He groaned. It was. too late to re treat, and so he reluctantly parted with the sixpence; but when he got inside he said:' 'Ma Jeanie, gin ye doot ma love for ye, jvst ye* think o' whit A hae spent on ye this vera day.' . Troubles must come to all men; Tjut those who are always looking for them ' will ;have the largest share. The happiness of our later life is in' great part made of the pleasur able memories of early years. '

DUEL FOLLOWS ' MASKED balk captain IN THE BELGIAN ARMY DISABLED. Dr. Doyen, the famous French doctor, last month appeared with signal success as a duellist. His adversary was Capt. Con stant- von Langhendonck, an officer in the Belgian army, and, as so often happens in - these affairs, the civilian easily beat the soldier. The quarrel arose out of ail1 incident that occurred at' a restaurant at Nice in the small hours of the morning at a Mi-Careme masked . ball. The doctor had taken his wife and another lady to supper. Accord ing to the story which - has reached Paris, a woman wno was seated at another ' table made some rude remarks about the party: Dr. Doyen told' the woman to hold her tongue, but the captain, who was standing by, took the woman's part. A heated alter cation ensued, and the two men came to blows. Dr. Doyen promptly decided to send a chal lenge to Capfc; _ Constant van Langhendonck, and wired to 'Paris to his chief assistant, selecting the Mayor of Nice for his othe...

THE LATERALS OF APPLE TREES. Hints to Growers. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 21 May 1910
THE. LATERALS' OF APPLE TREES.; Hints to Growers. . Mr E. E. Prescott, Principal of the School of Horticulture, Burn ley, writes in the Victorian ' Journal of Agriculture':— . The question of lateral manage ment is often one of great con cern to apple growers, and the resultant tree and its generous crop depends entirely upon the treatment that the tree-- laterals receive. In tree-building, there- - fore, the study of laterals is of the utmost importance. ? ? First of all, tho definition of a lateral must be decided upon, To ,,- serve the ourD'ose of- the present study,- the wood of apple trees above the trunk *may roughly be : classified into two . classes, viz., ' leaders and laterals. The leaders , comprise the wood that forms the framework of the tree, and they terminate at the growing points. At various intervals along the leaders buds are placed, and these buds break out : into growth, ? forming much weaker growths than the leading points, and also ' growing at various angles ...
TOWN LIFE AND COUNTRY LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 21 May 1910
TOWN LIFE AND COUNTRY LIFE. . 'Damaged lives,' in large towns, ' and among men of thirty-five and up wards, are the rule and not the excep tion (writes a contributor to 'The Hospital' magazine). No doubt this ? uronosition will be strenuously denied. k.. even by some assurance medical offi cers, and much more by those practi tioners whose experience of 'town practice' is very limited. ? Neverthe less, we repeat the proposition, and are prepared to defend it against all comers. It requires no elaborate pro cess of reasoning to convince the un prejudiced man of average intelli gence that the case is as here stated. Take a typical countryman of the better classes, whose - physique^ is good, whose means are adequate, whose mode of life is simple and un exciting; and compare him, not with the average, but with one of the best specimens of town-bred and strenu . ously toiling men who are bearing the brunt of -the business of the nineteenth century. Compare the two in appear ance, in appet...

Done Directly. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 21 May 1910
Done Directly. He was the wag of a merry party - in the first-class carriage, and when -. the ticket-collector appeared he lean-' - ed back and assumed the expression of a man who owned the line. 'Ticket, sir?' - The joker nodded. 'Ticket?' Then the joker spoke freezingly:- ^ 'How long have you been stationed here, my man? Don't you know me? I'm Blank, director!' But the ticket-collector wasn't im pressed. 'That's funny,' he said; 'so am I -l — we're all directors about here. I'll direct ye to the station-master; he'll direct ye to the bobby, and he'll di rect ye to the magistrate; he'll direct ye to pay the fine — unless he directs ye to gaol, and ? ' But the joker directed his hand to his pocket and produced the ticket i Sometimes speakers get their words mixed up in\a funny way.' This may happen from ' confusion of sound, as 1 'pot of message,' 'from Iceland's greasy mountains,' where the sounds of one syllable of neighboring words are reversed. Sometimes a more com monplace word...
COURT PLASTER. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 21 May 1910
COURT PLASTER. . If an injury is very 'slight, the me thod of application of plaster is unim i -portant; but if it is a deep cut, never use the plaster to cover the cut. Sim ply cut long, narrow strips, and apply them across the cut to bring its edges together. Then -the. secretions of the wound can escape. Do not apply-court plaster to a bruised wound.- A wound often becomes a painful sore when cov ered with plaster. Its sole use is to bring together and hold together the edges of a cut, or to protect an irrita ted but unbroken skin. . -

Confirmation. A conductor and a brakesman . on a Montana railway differ as to the proper pronounciation of - the name 'Eurelia.' Passengers are -often star tled upon arrival at this station to hear the conductor yell.. 'You're a liar! You're a liar!' And then- from the brakesman at the other end of the car: 'You really are! You really are!' The present at least is ours, and it depends upon ourselves whether.it is to be wasted in vain disputes or bright ened by charity and kindness.
CONVICTED BY A THERMOMETER [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 21 May 1910
CONVICTED BY A THERMOMETER In connection, with the death of Dr. Whitelaw, of Kirkintilloch,- the 'Glas- gow Medical Journal' tells an inter esting story of his early career. Be ing called up one night, he was walk ing along with the messenger, when he was set upon and 'knocked down in a lonely part of the road. His poc kets were rifled, and he was left ly ing on the road severely, injured.

Some time afterwards a thermometer registering the identi cal temperature was discovered in a pawnshop in Glasgow, and ? by this means the police were enabled to track the doctor's assailants and te- arrest them. . .
CAN YOU SOLVE THIS PROBLEM? [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 21 May 1910
CAN YOU SOLVE THIS PROBLEM? An interesting little problem was pro pounded to me the other day. A tra veller who had to Wait an hour or so for a train strolled about the village, and finding an inn went in and had five shillings worth of refreshments. He tendered a £5 note, but the inn keeper had no change. The .traveller, asked the innkeeper to keep the £5 note and give him fiye shillings, say ! ing that he wanted to make a few purchases, and that he would return soori, '' when perhaps the innkeeper would have the necessary change to square up. The traveller went out with the five shillings, and, chancing to meet a friend, borrowed £4 10/. He went back to the' inn, and, giving the innkeeDer £4 10/. asked for his £5 note back, saying that would square everything. The innkeeper as sented^ and the traveller, having got his £5 note, went away. By, how much did the traveller get the better, of the deal? It is a simple problem if you write it doWn, but I have riot yet found anyone who can...
ANTIQUITY OF "MODERN" MEDICINE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 21 May 1910
ANTIQUITY OF 'MODERN' MEDICINE. The ancient priests and savants of Thibet were_ sKilful physicians when almost the whole of Europe was over run by ignorant savages or semicivi lised barbarians. The 'Russian Gov ernment recently received a petition frcin the Siberian Buddhists, request ing that medical schools should be es tablished; among them, in which- the ancient Thibetan art of healing should be taugnt. In consequence of this - strange petition, the Medical Academy of St. Petersburg has been making in vestigations concerning the claims qt ? the ancient Thibetan art of healing. V A Thibetan handbook of medicine, . ; which was known and used about one thousand two hundred years ago, and .even then was regarded as ah ancient .-?? and venerated source of knowledge, was used as material for investigation. The Russian 'Academicians have thus made the astonishing discovery that this book described drugs and cures which European physicians 'discov- ered' many hundred years afterwards. T...
Just as Good. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 21 May 1910
Just as Good. 'I am trying to find my brother,' said the gentleman from England, ti midly, to the fierce-looking person with a sheath-knife in one side of his belt and a six-shooter in the other. - 'He was in this neighbourhood about four or fivp vpars a?n 'His n amo -was Williamson.' 'Williamson — kind of goody-goody chap?' 'Yes, that's the man!' 'Guess I did know him. He com- ' mitted suicide three years ago.' 'What! my brother committed sui cide? Why, he was the last man in the world to have done such a thing. Was he ill, or in trouble, or what?' 'He called me a liar, stranger!' An old gentleman was recently tra velling by rail, and opposite him sat a youth with remarkably long legs, which he was not very particular about digging into the other people's knees. On the arrival of the train at a big. Midland station, the long-legged youth observed to his neighbor 'I think I shall get out here and stretch my legs a little.' 'For goodness' sake, man, dinna do that!' said the old gentl...
HEART SURGERY. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 21 May 1910
HEART SURGERY. Heart surgery,, or the practice , of 1 operating directly on the living or gan itself, is just now attracting wide spread attentibn. A number of ex ceedingly daring operations have been carried out! in some instances with amazing success. As a rule, pentrative wounds' of the - heart are fatal. However, there 'are numerous cases on record which show that recqvery is sometimes possible. The following illustrate this point: — A negro boy was wounded in the . chest with 'a load of shot. He lived 67 days, and died from over-eating. The autopsy showed five bullets in the heart walls, and all firmly healed over. The second casq was that of a soldier who died 18 years -after he was shot. Upon autopsy the bullet was found in the lower right ventri cle. An English surgeon meritions a ? boy who lived for a month with a piece of wood 3in. long in the right side of the heart. ? In a recent report an Italian sur geon mentions the case of a man who had been stabbed, producing a per ...
