State Elections TOORAK. Mr Norman Bayles, retiring mem ber for Taorak, opened his campaign on Tuesday night at the Malvern Town Hall. 1 Cr W. R. Thomson, mayor, presided. The Candidate said he had an> explanation to offer. At a recent mcetintr of his committee I12 was asked if he knew who or what his opponent was, and he inerelv . e marked that he heard he was an electrician and that his father was a. German. That mild statement had brought on hirn a tirade of 'V.s» from his opponent, who had charged him with "hitting below thi belt." While Mr Behrend, his op > inent, had a perfect right to enter into the contest for Toorak, he thought it seemed strange that no local man could be found to oiler his services in the Socialistic interest. Proceeding, the Candidate s-&lt;id that in politics he had tried to represent all parties in the best interests of the State as a whole. Among the moat important questions was lint of finance, but when the Liberal Govern ment borrowed mo...

Photographing Moving Bullets. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 13 November 1914
Photographing Moving-. Bullets. ' Moving pictures havo unlimited possibilities, apparently, for the study of rapidly-moving objects. An apparatus capable of making pic tures at the rato of 100,000 a se cond has been made. With it seventy-two pictures of a revolver bullet were taken while moving ten inches. Pictures of a bullet passing through a stick of wood showed a curious condition. The bullet pass ed completely through the thin stick and was well on its way beyond before the wood showed any signs of distress. Then some tiny splinters started out, following the bullet; the stick began to split, and after the bullet had proceeded some distance the stick suddenly fell, to pieces. No camera shutters arc fast enough to tako pictures at anything like this speed, so no shutter was used. Instead a series of clcctric sparks was flashed, the sparks following ono another at the rate of 100,000 a second, each spark making a picture. The film was mounted on a wheel about three feet in circum...

Beauty for All. Ladies, this is a special article for you. Of course you wish to be pretty-you would not be a woman if you did not. But it may be you object to the use of cosmetics. All men don't like'the taste of face-powder, and many prefer to Bee these aids to boauty confined to the ladies of the stage.

"Greyhounds in the Slips." [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 13 November 1914
" Greyhounds in the Slips." The -moment one attempts to deal with the anti quity of tho greyhound one is literally embarrassod by tho wealth of material to hand. It is amusing to notice how each young, writer in tho history of Uio domestic dog sooner or later makes the groat discovory that tho grey hound is nn oxtremely an cient variety. There is something quite refreshing « in tho joy tho great "find" causes-to one porson at nny rate. The discoverer straightway announces the amazJng fact that a dog almost identical with a Waterloo Cup winner was beloved by tho Greeks ! True, quite true, oh ! industrious searcher in the archives of the pnst; but, since we are dealing with doggy matters, may I in doggy-language urge you to " try hack," It is truo that tho dog's graceful form appealed very strongly to tho Grcoks-they would havo ad mired an English thoroughbred-but they again wore only adopting a raco far, far older than themselves. "Try back." How far ? Now that is tho difficulty, bec...
Imperial Yokohama Cock. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 13 November 1914
Imperial Yokohama Cock.! The Japanese regard those fowls as sacred, and they hare carefully preserved the history of the breed from dates prior to 1000 A.D. The cocks are always adorned with what poultrymen of any other coun try would regard as abnormal talis and feathers, and in exceptional cases they moult tail feathors 10ft. long. Three specimens of feathers . that have been preserved in the museum at Tokio measuro from 13ft to 15ft. in length, while the imperial Austrian Museum possessed a cock that produced a feather 20ft. long. The hens have less cho^y plumage, but they are fair layers. The breed belongs to the Mediterranean classes, and is hardy. It is claimed that the Japanese havo a secret method of causing the birds to produco these extreme tails. One theory is that they give i a special food, and by carefully pull ing the feathors from timo to time the natural moult is checked, and the quills in the feathers become elongated by several years' growth, and the Jowl is said ...
Aviator's Secret. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 13 November 1914
Aviator's Secret. Nearly forty one-legged people hav« asked M. Desoutter, the avia tor, to supply them with lega like the one he has made' lor himself. It weighs only 21b., haa a padded calf, and is composed of an alloy of aluminium* the secret of which is known only to M. Dosoutter. And so he has decided to take up artificial leg-making professionally, and is setting about patenting his invention. "All the tools I use are those I have for my trade, which is watch making/' he fluid recently. " Log makers want me to share my se cret with them, and I have even had requests for my old wooden leg. 1 have halZ-a-dozcn orders now, which will keep mc busy for the next six months, for each log takes four weeks to make. I hope to buy an aeroplane out of the profits;"
OTHER WAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 13 November 1914
OTHER WAYS. Johannesburg has taken to calling itself the healthiest place on earth. It's so healthy, in fact, that the people who, live in it would go on doing so /or ever, if ihey did not commit suicido or get accidentally killed or poisoned. At any rate, tho sanitary people who congressed there not long ago eay its climate is the finest on > earth, and that its . people possess more stamina to the square inch than any other place, which is just a variation, of course, on the old gag about brains. Still, between earthquakes, light ning storms, and live wires, the place has its full share of excite ments, and there are always heaps of ways of getting killed besides dying from disease.
LATEST ENGINE OF WARFARE. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 13 November 1914
LATEST ENGINE OF WARFARE. A terrible weapon of warfare has been invented. In the "Naval An nual" for 1914, there is a descrip tion that might almost bo described as devilish. It is o! the Leon, torpedo mine, which has now been acquired and is being manufactured by a British firm., . This engine is so constructed that it. can be set to hover between any depths below the surface that may be desired. , When placed in the water it has a slight negative buoyancy, and sinks until automati cally a propeller is brought into action which drives it upwards again. It can be used in the open sea by any type of ship,. or, in the case of. tidal harbours, it could be released by a vessel outside so ns to make ' its way with tho tide into the anchorage, and perhaps destroy shipping there. A touch on tho deadly steel "whiskers" which pro ject from its upper surface, and tho enemy would be sent to the bot tom.

*' WHITE-ROLL FEAST. At Potsdam recently, the Kaiser took part in the annual "white-roll feast" of the model infantry battal ion of the German Army. The feast is the one occasion in each year when wheat bread, instead of black army "coraraisbrod" is served to the battalion, together with a good dinner of meat, stewed fruits, vege tables, and "moibowlo,"- or -hock cup. The Kaiser, accordance With tradition, - sat down among the sol diers, broke "white rolls" with them, and' then drained a tumberful of "maibowle" from the glass of a soldier who had already drunk from it.

Facts About the Navy. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 13 November 1914
Facts About the Navy. H As Tennyson says "Tho fleet of England is her all in alt." Battleships form the best fighting line of all sea power; without them organised sea warfare is at an end. The torpedo is a moat potent en gine of destruction, but it can only be employed within a certain range. The energy at the muzzle of a battleship's gun is estimated at 45,000 foot-tons. A cruiser acts as the eyes of a fleet. She has a vory high speed, and a wide radius of action con ferred by a big coal endurance. Units of the Dreadnought class carry 800 projectiles, whoso total weight is 242 tons. - A very much wider area of broad side armour is always disposed be low the water-line of a ship than above it. Tho barbotte-the most efficient means of protecting; tho guns and gunners in a warship-is a circular fortress of steel, with a bomb-proof roof, tho whole revolving upon a cylinder which goes right down to tho'bottom of the ship. An "A" class torpedo is 20 feet long, 18 inches in diameter. Its...
