WIRELESS TELEPHONES. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 10 October 1914
I WIRELESS TELEPHONES. I That the next few years will aee seme remarkable developments in wireless telegraphy is forecasted by the surprising experiments which have just 'been successfully carried . out. Mr. Marconi hopes to establish shortly a wireless telephone between his oiiice in the Strand and his country house at Fawley, Hampshire, sixty-seven miles away. "Already," he says, "we have had c nversations with Berlin. We could not hear all the words, but the test was very promising, seeing that we were talking over 600 miles. And recently we had wireless telephone communication between warships forty miles apart which was entirely satisfactory." Even more astonishing, however, is the wireless telephone apparatus invented by two French naval. offi-, corn. Commander . Colin and Lieuten ant Seance," by which conversations wre easily carried on recently ocer u iiirtance of 150 miles. Every tone and inflection of the speaker's voice was preserved, as if he had been in the same room. F...

SONG OF HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 10 October 1914
SONG OF HOPE. There Is a pill for every ache, a salve for every sore, so let's rejoice and never make a rumpus any more. There is a poultice for each head, for every pain some dope; until the doc tors say we're (lead, no one should give up hope. 1 knew a man once on a time who had no store of cash; he said this world was quite a crime, and all its glories trash; and so he got a neigh bor's axe, and by the old horse trough, with sundry strong and skil ful whacks he chopped his head piece off. Next week a lawyer printed ads. announcing that this knave had fall en heir to heaps of scads, but he was n his grave. The darkest hour, as Homer said, is just before the Dawn; there's often comfort just ahead when all the hope seems gone. There is a syrup for each cough, a lance for every boil, so never think to shuffle off some yards of mortal coil. .Misfortune hits us now and then, but if we bravely grin, she'll go pur suing weaker men and push their faces in. There is a cure for every wart, ...

PERILS OF THE DIVER'S WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 10 October 1914
PERILS OF THE DIVER'S WORK. Referring to the death of a diver en gaged on the Empress of Ireland wreck, a writer says that the first sen sation felt when the diver goes down to thirty feet or so below the surface is a singing in the ears. This is due to the drum of the ear being stretched a little, and this is caused in turn by the fact that the air pressure on the outside has been increased, while that on the inside is kept normal for a few seconds longer by some slight ob struction in the Eustachian tube con necting the ear with the nose. Ordinarily a diver may descend quite quickly to the scene of his work. Uut he must be very careful hojv he comes up, and the longer he remains down the more time must he take in coming up. The reason is that all the time he is down his blood is absorb ing air. The greater the depth the greater the pressure of the air, and the more of it he absorbs in a given time. His blood becomes a rated like soda-water in a syphon. The air bub bles out. At 200...

PUNISHED FOR SHAVING OFF MOUSTACHE. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 10 October 1914
PUNISHED FOR SHAVING OFF MOUSTACHE. TUd colonel of a cavalry regiment in the east of France, having noticed that one of his' men had shaved off his moustache, issued an order in which he described the act as "unworthy of a trooper." They could, he said, never have too ! much hair in the cavalry on the face, and he ordered the offender to be con fined to barracks until his moustache had grown-again. The colonel urged his subordinates to take vigorous steps ' to suppress "an effeminate habit which | is out of place in the army."

CHAPTER XXVI. The Family Pictures. "Tlie admittance would b9 just as well perhaps," Herepatfc said a trifle coldly. "My dear boy, you have just been watching a litue comedy of the most brilliant type. It is rather unfortun that you are not In the mood tp ap preciate it. Now, by my cleverness, backed by the natural astuteness of i the Count, I have averted a great scandal—and incidentally saved that excellent Gillispie from a severe wig ging. That diamond is not mine " "1 could see that from the iirst," Herepath replied. "You arranged the whole thing by signal under the very eyes of the police. It staggered me that they didn't see it." "L'audace, 1'audace et toujours l'audace," Ninon quoted mockingly. "My word, your eyes are not so hope less if you could follow all that. But tliat is another side ol the question which we will discuss in due season. In the meantime, please do npt run a way "with' the idea that because the blue diamond is not mine therefore it belongs to the Princess. ...

THE SENTENCE OF THE COURT. By FRED M. WHITE. Published by arrangement with Ward, k & Co. Ltd., London and Melb. All Rights Reserved. . CHAPTER XXV. The Danger Zone. Almost before the thing was done Herepath regretted it. He would have regarded such an act as incred-. ible folly on the' part of anybody else. It' he were caught with, those stones in his possession there could only be one end to the adventure. Assured ly he would be arrested as either the thief or an accomplice. Had he been lured here for the very purpose of being duped? Had he been deliberately marked down for a cars paw? These questions raced through his mind rapidly. After all was (said and done, he knew very little o£ Nin uu Desterre. She was beautiful and fascinating, and apparently ricb. She was a prime favorite in the most ex clusive circles, but Herepath had never heard anything of her family or of her relations. She seemed to read these troubled reflections as they Hashed upon Herepath. But she was not...
MAXIMS FOR BUSINESS MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 10 October 1914
MAXIMS FOR BUSINESS MEN. I One constantly hears the expression that So-and-so failed in his business be cause 'he bit off more than he could chew"; in other words, took on a big ger job than he could manage. In the opinion, however, o£ Mr. Herbert Cas son, who has been speaking on behalf of the .convention of business men which was held at Toronto at the end of last month, an excellent maxim for the business man to bear in mind is —"Bite off more than you can chew— and chew it." Among other maxims which he gave are the following:— System is not everything. You can go to the bad systematically. I An advertising man is a saver built like a spender, just as an oyster is a fish built like a nut. The right place to cut prices is in the factory. The man who cuts prices in the shop does so because he has not the brains to sell his goods. The development of the* motor In dustry Is due to the skill of the sales men, who were selling cars for seven years before the manufacturers knew how to m...
[?] [?] LIGHTNING CALCULATORS. Mathematical Marvels. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 10 October 1914
, &lt;-s •*« ■•aftusf.* • LIGHTNING CALCULATORS. | Mathematical Marvels. There is at the present time study ing at Cambridge one tit the most won derful mathematicians the world haa ever seen—a young Hindoo, Mr. . S. Ramanujan by name—whose work, al though he is only twenty-six years of age, has excited the admiration of all mathematical experts. Perhaps the most extraordinary thing about Ram anujan is that, as a mathematician, he is quite untaught. Until a year ago he was a clerk in the employment of the Port Trust of Madras. . But in spite of this, he has, to quote Mr. Hardy, Fellow of Trinity, who has taken a great interest in Ramanujan, "discovered for himself a great num ber of things which the leading mathe maticians of the last hundred years had added to the knowledge of school mon, although he was ignorant of tlielr work and accomplishments..Indeed, ■hisrmatTieffiatrcaVeducation ft- rather a mystery, and the first I knew'tif him was about fifteen months ago, when he ...
Lord Minto and the Sentry. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 10 October 1914
Lord Minto and the Sentry. A capital story which Lord Mintw used to delight in telling was of au experience he had while he was Viceroy of India. One morning in Simla he wanted to speak to the Com mander-in-Chief of the Indian Army before the lattter started work for th« day, so he set off unattended to pay an early call. When he arrived at the Commander-in-Chief's official residence he found his way barred by a sentry, | who apparently did not recognise the visitor. Lord Minto explained that he want ed to see the Commander-in-Chief, but the tentry declined to allow him to pass. "But I am the Viceroy," protested his lordship. The sentry looked at him with a pitying smile. "Ah," he said, thoughtfully, "we gets all sorts 'ere. Last week we 'ad a cove what kidded 'isself 'e was Queen Victoria's grandfather. We 'ad to put' 'im in a strait-waistcoat, so you'd better push oil." A child entered a "grocer's shop and, putting a jar on the counter, asked for twonennyworth of treacle. The groc...

Not Guilty, My Lord! [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 10 October 1914
Not Guilty, My Lord! There's a good story being told just now of Mrs. Lloyd George's encoun ter with .a Hertfordshire -working man who wanted to know what her hus band did with, all the money he got as Chancellor of the Exchequer. "Where do all those millions go?" he demanded. "It all goes for insurance and old age pensions, and the Navy, and so on," Mrs. Lloyd George replied. But her antagonist had all the fig ures at his finger-ends. So many million, he said, went for old-age pen sions, so many to the Navy, so man} for insurance, and so on. "That leaves a million not accounted for," he proceeded accusingly. "Now, what about that other million?" "Oh, please believe me," cried Mrs. Lloyd George distractedly, "1 haven't got it!" Some people place a small bag of unslaked limo inside the piano to keep the damp away. This prevents the wires from rusting, and keeps the piano in good condition.

A Soft Job. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 10 October 1914
A Soft Job. Air. Roosevelt was once talking to a young man about his future career. "What are you going to be?" he asked. "A doctor," replied the youth. "A doctor?" echoed Mr. Roosevelt. "Why have you chosen that profes sion?" "Well, it seems to me," was tie reply, "that a doctor's career Is rather a soft job, for he's the only man who gets paid whether or not his work is successful!" "Now, Freddie, go and kiss your little sweetheart, and make it uo." said Freddie's mother. "No, I won't." "Go and tell her how much you lovo her and how sorry .you are." "No, I won't. Pa says he got iuto a breach of promise case by t.ellin' a girl that, and had to marry the old thing. I won't run any risks, I won't!" To a woman love is the bread of life, to a man just the jam on the bread.
A QUICK MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 10 October 1914
A QUICK MARRIAGE. " Housewives who find the servant problem a source of endless worry may lind some consolation in the fact '.hat in no country is the matter a perfectly simple one. Miss Evelyn Adam, in "Behind the Screens" in Japan, describes some of the difficul ties of keeping servants in that coun try. The maidservants are untrust worthy, but they are gentle and cheap —while they stay. Unfortunately they are fond of playing the vanishing trick upon their mistresses. A lady in Tokio had a valuable ser vant of somewhat mature years, who rejoiced in the poetic name of "Oharii San"—the Honorable Miss Spring. One day at tea-time Miss Spring did not appear. The kitchen was deserted,- the kettle was cold; half the luncheon-plates lay immersed in a bowl of soapy water, the other half stood on the sink, ready to be put away. • The next morning Oharu San reap peared, and demanded the fragment of wages due to her since the begin ning of the month. The lady asked why she was leaving so sudd...

A newly-married man returned home the other night to find his wife looking very sad. "What is the matter, Mary?" he asked. "Oh, John!

Why, it says he started punishing them severely. He out Drake twice, and knocked Booth all over the field. Wilson in tertered, but was knocked to the boundary. Next Hirst tried; but Hobbs ran out and knocked him through the pavilion clock.' Rhodes came ou, and what do you think llobbs did to him?
