MAXIMS FOR BUSINESS MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 10 October 1914

MAXIMS FOR BUSINESS MEN. One constantly hears the expression : that So-and-so failed in his business be cause 'lie bit off more than he could chew"; in other words, took on a big ger job than he could manage. In the opinion, however, of Mr. Herbert Cas son, who has been speaking on behalf o£ 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. A L'Si /i >;_rivi u_' fvjU >sf V" lish 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 make them. Sell good goods. Wo have fou...

LIGHTNING CALCULATORS.*'^ Mathematical Marvels. There is at the present time study ing at Cambridge one of the most won derful mathematicians the world has ever seen—a young Hindoo, Mr. S. Hainan ujan 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 tiling about liam anujan is that, as a mathematician, he is quite untaught." Until a year ago he was a clerk in the employ men t 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 Kamanujan, "discovered for himself a great num ber of tilings which the leading mathe maticians of the last hundred years had added to the knowledge of school men, although he was ignorant of their w.orlc and accomplishments.

A Soft Job. .Mr. Roosevelt was once talking to a young man about his future career. "What ure you going to be?" lie asked. "A doctor," replied the youth. "A doctor?" echoed Mr. Roosevelt. "Why have you chosen that profes sion?" "Well, it seems to me," was the reply, "that a doctor's career is rather i soft job, for he's the only man who gets paid whether or not his work is successful!" "Now, Freddie, go a^rl kiss your little sweetheart, and make it uo," said Freddie's mother. "No, I won't." "Go and tell her how much you lovo ler and how sorry you are." "No, I won't. Pa says he got into i breach of promise case by tellin' a ;irl that, and had to marry the old ;hing. I won't run any risks, I won't!"

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 t entry declined to allow him to pass. "But I am the Viceroy," protested his lordship.

AH, THE POWER OF A SINGLE CACE. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 10 October 1914

AH, THE POWER OF A SINGLE CACE. Mr. Koon Kan was in a greatly per turbed state of mind. He was running 'or a train and feared he was late. In an agony of suspense and mental niguish, he labored on with what speed he might while burdened down with heavy despair. While he was thus suffering and making his suffering most noticeable Lo the casual observer, he suddenly saw a face—a placid, common face; but it bore a message of courage and hope for him. It made him ashame'J, instantly, that he was perturbed or an guished in spirit over so small a thing t-s the prospect of missing a train. His features relaxed; his mouth shut like a steel trap whose spring has sud denly been released. Calm entered his spirit; his pace slackened. The face he had seen was that of the station clock, and it told him he had ten minutes in which to find hte seat in his train.

WHERE THE EYE IS DECEIVED. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 10 October 1914

WHERE THE EYE IS DECEIVED. A curious optical illusion is some times seen as a motor-car passes, the wheels oC tho moving vehicle appear ing for an instant to stop or even turn backward. In au investigation re ported to tho Royal Society, Professor A. .Mullock mounted a cardboard disc with spokes on a flywheel, and when ttiis was revolved so rapidly tliul flukes could not be seen or easily 'ollowed by the eye, and a slight me ih.Liiical shock of almost any kind v.-r.s given the observer, the spokes appeared almost stationary for a frac tion of a second. Shocks having this ei'iect were given in many ways, such as in the contact of the feet with the ground as in walking, by tapping the head or body, or even by rapidly blinking the eyes. It was proved that ilia appearances depend on the speed of rotation, the brightness of illumin ation, and to some degree on the na ture of the shock. The explanation was offered that the shock produces a momentary loss or variation of sen sation. This v...

PERILS OF THE DIVER'S WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 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 l'elt 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 insic'.e is kc.pt 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. But he must be very careful how he conies 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 o£ it he absorbs in a given time, iiis blood becomes a rated like soda-water in a syphon. The air bub bles out...

J!r. Marconi hopes to establish shortly a wireless telephone between his oflice 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 GOO 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 cers . Commander Colin and Lieuten ant/'Jeance, by which conversations 'A'pc ongily f;n-T-inrl .-in vnnnntly Jivar a'l'istaiice of 150 miles.
