HOW GLACIERS AND ICEBERGS ARE FORMED. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 29 May 1914

HOW GLACIERS AND ICEBERGS ARE FORMED. Most of us talk of glaciers-and ice bergs familiarly; but how many know how they are formed? When snow falls in the Polar re gions, or at high altitudes, Mr. A. G. Ogilvie explained to a large audience of young folks in the theatre of the Royal Geographical Society a!. Turl ington Gardens, it does not melt, or it melts very little, even during ilie summer. So tlie layers of sn ivv are constantly increasing. When the slopes are steep, the accumulated snow falls as an avalanche; but 011 a high tableland there is no sacli es cape for it. Eut the snow, falling year after year, does not build up 0 great snow mountain, because the lower layers are pressed down by the ! great weight, the air is squeezed out, and granular ice is formed. This downward motion is tlis essen tial feature in the glacier. First the grains of ice are no bigger than a' pin's head; hut they gradually, as the pressure increases, get bigger ana big ger, and the large ones absorb t...

ENTERTAINING. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 29 May 1914

ENTERTAINING. Fortunately, < * unfortunately, no on„- goes constantly to another per son's house unless it is made worth . his while, and a hostess who realises this without taking offence^ has gone a long way towards making her task easy. It is not mean, hut natural to expect some return for the trouble of paying a visit or accepting an invitation. We may go to a house to be interested in conversation, have a good meal, meet pleasant people, see something we | don't see at home, or otherwise please ourselves with our visit. No one can with reason expect oth ed people to come and see them for more disinterested motives than they themselves are actuated by. After all, the affection which is bestowed with out asking anything in return can only be expected once or twice in a lifetime. 'I consider that entertaining is one of the most wholesome forms which a. housewife's energies can take, pro vided ehe keeps it entirely subservi ent to her other home interests. To have a hous...

WHAT TRUE LOVE IS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 29 May 1914

WHAT TRUE LOVE IS. True love is not the sudden product of a chance meeting. It is brought about by a process of patience and pain, sacrifice and trust. In love— true love at first sight—one finds it a little difficult to believe, in spite of what many people say. Of course, two people may on first meeting re cognise in each other a lovable and congenial companion, but to call this treu love is like calling a child edu cated on its first going to school. The love that lasts is a thing of growth. It must be very often of very gradual growth indeed. It musi be sunned with smiles, strengthened with tenderness, shielded with affec tion, watered with tears. And this I process must go on through the years, ; for very sensitive, very holy, and in j finitely lovely is the perfect flower. | This love, though, that only grows in : strength and beauty with each pass ing year, has nothing in common with the "chocolate and concert" variety. One might as well compare the row dy music of the barel ...

A RECORD PRIZE FIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 29 May 1914

A RECORD PRIZE FIGHT. The Maharajah of Mourbhauj in la dia thinks the Johnson-Jeffries light "very small beer." "The talk about this prize-Ggliting reminds nie," he remarked, "o£ a story someone told me the other day. Once, so the story says, there was a man— a white man—travelling about in In dia with two ot' your prize-fighters. There was in a near by province a wise old Rajah who was Tond of pugil istic encounters. The white man heard about tin's, and approached the old Rajah, with the result that, the latter offered a large sum of money to the winner of a light between these two men; a: 10.000 was to be the prize to the'winner, and nothing to the 'user. •'Well, the (wo lighters being wise, agreed to—what do you call it?—yes, loaf on the job. They each would take'half of the'Rajah's money. But Uie Rajah had also much wisdom, and he suspected the plot, and made plans also. "Well, the day of the encounter oame.

THE GREAT MONEY MYSTERY. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 29 May 1914

THE GREAT MONEY MYSTERY. Lately we have been hearing the stories at first hand of some of the greatest successes of the day in the way o£ money-making. They all re semble one another in one respect— that of concentration on one thing at a time. But while concentration is respon sible for much modern success, it leaves a vast area of interests un touched, and this area is never cover ed in after life. What is there more piteous than the wealthy man who, after many years of money-making, has retired? He cannot go down on "melting days," like the retired candle-maker,, because probably his business has passed en tirely out of his hands. Besides, it would be the lat thing hi fashionable wife and daughters would desire him to do. They are concerned to put as wide a distance as possible between those early days of struggle and their present social ease. So the poor man goes in for agriculture without tho smallest real interest in it, or he takes to owning racehorses, or he tries to kill t...

WOMEN'S HEAVY HATS A Man's versus a Woman's Headgear [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 29 May 1914

WOMEN'S HEAVY HATS A Man's versus a Woman's Headgear A man's' silk hat bears a reputa tion. "It is so heavy and hot," cry its detractors, "and causes its wear er's head to ;tebe and his hair to conic of? by hand [uls." Alas, how ol'ien our innocent be liefs are contradicted by the facts! As is: proved by actually weighing both, the bulkiest of masculine hats are 1'S'h tor than many of the crea tions women put on their heads-. It seems a. tragic- necessity that woman, the weaker, must carry, com paratively speaking, so considerable a burden whithersoever she wan ders, and when we add to the weight of her hat, the weight of tier hair, combs, pins, etc., we wonder she can walk along at all. Now for the evidence of figures. The masculitfe silk hat, that target for universal opprobrium, such a one as the ordinary man—not inclined to bo extravagant—might wear, weighs about seven ounces. As made by tho best firms and moro expensive, its weight is rather less, however. The popular bowler we...

GARDENING. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 29 May 1914

gardening. By John Hassail. Gardening is one of the fiuest oc cupations in the world. I realise this regularly every year about the time wiicu the postman begins to decorate my doormat with seed catalogues, aad I become so keen oil it tliat I ueglect my work 10 study all the beautiful flowers that ^row to such gratifying maturity on the colored plates. - Why llovers should do so well on colored plates wlieu they usually do so ill in llower-pots, is one of those numerous mysteries which tend to make gardening what it is. But there they are, and J, as a gardener who knows a good thing when be sees it, aud never sees it ia his own garden, am bound to admire tliera. But I never buy anything from the seed merchants nowadays. I daren't. Once upon a time, before I knew tile colored plates were only intended to brighten up the catalogues, I bought some pansy seeds and set them with easy confidence and a small trowel in my back garden. Some o£ the seed came up, quite quickly—with the assista...

Why Acid Stomachs Are Dangerous. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 29 May 1914

Why Acid Stomachs Are Dangerous. Scientific Rkports, May:—. Acid in the'stomach is dangerous and frequently ' fatal, because acid from its corrosive nature lias a tendency to destroy the mucous lin ing of the stomach itself; No one intentionally swallows hydrochloric acid, but it is often present in large quantities as the result of food fer mentation in the stomach resulting from the chemical action, which so frequently follows the eating of the daintiest and most tasty foods or the indulgence in any form of alcholic stimulants, including beer, wine, liqueurs, etc. The fermentation causes pain, uneasiness and discom fort because of tfce acid which burns like a red hot iron, and the forma tion of gas which distends the stomach, causing shortness of breath and palpitation of the heart. The trouble being entirely due to the un natural condition of stomach con tents, and not in any way to the fault of the stomach itself,physicians have adopted with marvellous suc cess the plan ot neutr...
