THE FIRST "WIRELESS." [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 4 April 1911

THE FIRST 'WIRELESS.' A curious system of 'wireless tele graphy' has been found among the Indiana of the Putumayo, a chief tributary of the Upper Amazon. As described by W. E. Hardenburg, the apparatus consists of two logs of hard wood, with small holes burnt through lengthwise by heated sttrnes. The thicker of the two logs gives out two grave notes when struck; the thinner, two acute notes. Hang ing from roof timbers, the logs are beaten with rubber-tipped clubs, and signals are sent by a code based on the difference of tone and length and number of blows. In this way messages are exchanged to distances of seven to ten miles.

WHAT FOG IS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 4 April 1911

WHAT FOG IS. Small particles of water have a tendency to fall slowly in still air, while a very light upward current will be enough to keep them from descending at all in the case of very small particles. It has been shown that the globules of water forming a log or cloud are each composed of a film of water condensed upon a particle of dust, and the cores are solid instead of gaseous, as the old theory indicated.

THE MOST IMPORTANT INVENTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 4 April 1911

THE MOST IMPORTANT IN VENTION. Undoubtedly, the most important invention- in human ' history was that of the art of alphabetical writ ing. The first alphabet was devis ed by the Phoenicians, who gave the idea to the Greeks. , . They pass ed it to the Romans, whose alpha bet is the basis of nearly all or our modern ones. Capitals were used altogether till the seventh century, when small letters began to come . in.. . Punctuation, unknown at first, . - v:/ ' . ' - r -- * was introduced about 250 B.C., and was finally reduced to a system in 1500 by Aldus, the famous Venetian J printer.

WEIGHT OF A CROWD. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 4 April 1911

WEIGHT OF A CROWD. In the building of theatre galleries and grand-stands the supporting strength of' the structure has to be carefully worked out. This is done by multiplying the area in square feet by the pressure which it is esti mated a crowd exerts per square foot, and making the supports pro portionately strong.' At one time the weight of a crowd was deter mined at between 821b. and 1021b. per square foot, but experiments have shown this to be a great under estimation, and the weight exerted is now calculated at from 1231b. to 133^.

A STORY OF THE GREAT CHAKA. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 4 April 1911

A STORY OF THE GREAT CHAKA. The great and terrible Chaka would not allow anyone except him self to own cattle ; and he for bade anyone, on pain of death, to give food or assistance of any kind to men found driving herds of cat tle. And in order to see whether his commands were being obeved. he sent out men with cattle and bade them drive the herd north, and see whether in any kraal they could get food. The men with the cattle went on and on, and at every kraal they were repulsed. At last, faint and worn out, they came to a kraal far up in the country and piteously begged for food. But the inhabi tants feared Chaka and would give them nothing. Yet one young girl, a chief's daughter, was filled with compassion for the men in their hunger and weariness. So, since she could not persuade anyone else ,to succour them, she herself went out by night and brought them food. And when the people of the kraal j knew what she had done, and found also that the men were Chaka's, they were very angr...

AFFECTION WITH A MOTIVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 4 April 1911

AFFECTION WITH A MOTIVE. ? A ? As a well-dressed elderly London er stepped from a train at one of the busy Manchester stations a pretty girl came briskly up to him, rapturously threw her arms about his neck, and kissed him several times. 'Oh, father, I am so de lighted that you have come!' she cried. Then, drawing back, she looked into the face of the new ar rival, her own countenance sudden ly expressing shame and horror. 'Why, you're not my father!' she murmured, endeavouring to free herself from his embrace. 'Yes, I am,' insisted the traveller, pressing her closer; 'you are my long-lost daughter, and I am going to keep you in my arms till a policeman ar rives.' A constable was fetched, and then the Londoner's diamond scarfpin was discovered in the girl's hand. 'Well, that's a new trick here!' said the .policeman. 'Is it?' said the traveller. 'It's an old one in London!' It is not from the edge of steel a wound takes longest to heal. Each man can learn something from his neighbour...

A CHIP POTATO CUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 4 April 1911

A CHIP POTATO CUTTER. ? T ? Chip potatoes are an article of food which, judging by the enorm ous consumption, are appreciated by many people. As usual, the home made article is preferable to the shop variety, no matter how good the lat ter may be. The regulation cutter is expensive, but with the article we illustrate and describe, an efficient substitute can be provided. Obtain a thick piece of strong, hard woocl. Next obtain an old clock spring, and cut it into suitable lengths. Having cut a circular hole in the block of wood, hammer the lengths of clock spring into the wood as shown. All that is now required is another block of wood to press the potatoes on to the springs, which act as cutters. A handy man will per ceive how to obtain the best results from the idea which we have roughly formulated.

The Manx Deemster's Oath. Among the strangest oaths of faithfulness to the trust reposed in: their hands is that taken by the offi cials of the Isle of Man in 'connec- tion with the Coronation of the King. These officials — the Manx deemsters, as they are called — hold office direct from the Kilie, and their oath is anything but prosaic. They swear in this wise : 'By this Book and by the holy contents thereof, and by the won derful work^Hat'God hath miracul ously wrought :in heaven above and in the earth beneath in six days and seven nights, I do swear that I will, without respect of favour or friend ship, consanguinity, or affinity, envy or malice, execute the laws of this' isle justly betwixt our Sover eign Lord the King and his sub jects within this, isle, and betwixt parly and party, as indifferently as the 'herning backbone does lie in the middle of the fish'.'

Evolution and Devolution in Mourning. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 18 April 1911

Evolution and Devolution in Mourning. The evolution caused by the death of a parent, of a close friend, or of a beloved chief and ruler seems to have no. place i'n the animaj. world ; it is distinctively human/ An ani mal may be disturbed, disconcerted by the death of its- companion, but the driving force 6f natural selec tion 7 i'n the struggle for existence leaves neither pla.ee nor time for mourning and regfret. Life is_ too urgent and exacting in the animal, world for any such pause. -.And yet it is no less true of mourning than of other developments of mental quality and capacity which marked the gain and progress of prehistoric man in his ascent from- animal an cestors that a later phase of man's progress has brought reason and knowledge to bear on the unres trained activity of primitive, but. d!'s 'tincti'vely human, tendencies. The prehistoric cave-dwellers of South ern Europe .must have occupied a large part of their ? activity' in the decoration and burial of their dead, a...

The accommodation afford ed the parishioners was very differ ent from the present luxurious age. There were- no pews in Scottish kirks before the reign of Charles I. The people had to bring their stools with them, . and those that did not do this simply v sat down on the floor. For the evening service par ishioners likewise brought candle sticks and candles.

Mr. Rudyard Kipling, who has said many good things about Canada, described Medicine Hat - as having 'all hell for its basement, with the lid off.' So 'Trie Hat,' having Nature herself for its la'hiplighter, does very well without mere mort als 'knocking luminous holes in the Msk,' in R, L. Stevenson's im moral phrase. The City Council, experiencing the phenomenon of having an inexhaustible supply of. gas, it not ot money, nave iuunu u cheaper to let the street lamps burn all day than to pay labour to light ...
