Twilight came on he fore they got clear- of the woods, and the wolves then became bolder and threatened to rush the last man of the party.. It became impossible to proceed to- the place, which it had been in tended to reach before nightfall,' "id the ski-ers took up a position wherc their rear was protected by a rock, and passed the night behind their skis stuck upright in the snow. Nearly all ladl revolvers, and several had electric pocket-lamps, which really save~l their lives, as they enabled them to fire at any wolf which ventured within range o[ the light. The animals prowled around them all night, but made olf at danyhreak, leaving several of ...

SCIENTIFIC AND USEFUL. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 12 August 1914

SCIENT!FIC AND USEFUL. By a new process pineapple Ieaves, which were formlerly waste, cat be made into paper fibre at a profit. The fibre is a totght substance that can be used for insllatilg purposes, and seventy pounds of tibre can be nl:lnu falctured frost a ton of pineapple leaves. Every one has: noticed the curious "singlng" of the telegraph andl tel phone wires: often heard along quiet country ro:ads. Professor Field, of the University of Ottawa, suggests that the noises are due to vibrations trans mitted to the wires by the posts, whichi receive thiem from the earth,' andl that they are thie results of earth vibrations identical with those that the seismograph, or earthquake-de tector, records. "The song of the wires," Professor Field adds, "is the song of the barometer; if it is low, a change in the weather may come in two ldays; if sharp, it may be Im mediate." The most successful results yqt at tained in various attempts that have been made to produce a wearable cloth from...

MOTOR NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 12 August 1914

MOTOR NOTES. The value of a self-starting equip ment upon a motor car will be recog nised when we note the number of In stances where owners of cars have re ceived injuries through back-firing of the engine. There are many makes of self-start ers on the market-mechanical, com Dressed air. and electric. So far, the electric self-starting equipment has proved the most successful, and is be ing adopted by the majority of Ameri can car manufacturers who have this year taken up self-starters. Ameri cans are quicker to note the value of up-to-date ideas, and do not hesitate so long as the Continental and Eng lish manufacturers to test any new and ingenious device that may be in troduced. Hence we find on the Hup mobile car, for instance, a system of self-starting and lighting which is the outcome of long and thorough investi gation by the Westinghouse people, who were the inveritors'of the system of steam brakes, upon all our rail ways. The Westinghouse brakes are well-known to all the wo...

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 12 August 1914

VARIETIES. A man naturally believes in the sur vival of the fittest as long as he lives. Some people are so sensitive that they seem to have corns all over them. Charity begins at home, and often ruins its health by staying there too much. Constant rebuffs are the kicks of fate, and hope dies under them. It's not until a mai wants to bor row a sovereign that he discovers that lie has so many close friends. However practical we deem it, that life loses itself which fails to keep in touch with the invisible. Of all the discoveries whichl men ineed to make, the most important at the present nmoment is that of the self forming power, treasured up in them selves. It is not so very long ago that cop per was used in Sweden as the chief miedium of exchange, and at times iierchalnits had to take wheelbarrows with them when they went to receive payments of large sums. Artificial eyes were first used by the Egyptians, long before the Chrstian era. They were fashioned of gold, silver, copper, o...
