What War Moans. ' "All fair in love and war," runs the old saying, and Mr. E. A. Vise* telly, in hit volume of reminiscen ces, "My Days of Adventure," proves the truth of it.

An Emergency Envelope. Occasionally a person has use for a long envelope and if none is at hand, two smaller envelopes, says Mr. W. M. Braly, will answer the purposo as well.

Cork Kept Away from Opening. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 20 November 1914
Cork Kept Away from Opening'. 1 When trying to extract a cork '? without the aid of, a corkscrew.it often happens that the cork is for ced into the bottle. The result is that every time the bottle is in M*rtcd the cork is drawn into the neck of the' bottle and stop* ..the liquid from running out. To pre vent this, bend a picee of spring. wire into - the shape shown, and insert it in the bottle neck. The wire form should be long: enough to extend slightly into tbe bottle. When the bottle is inverted the cork will, according, to Mr. J. J. K'olar, the inventor : of the device, be kept back from the neck and there will always bo an opening, re : gardless of the position taken by tho cork. Of course, this cannot be used in 'bottles containing corrosive liquids or aeids.

PART 6. CHAPTER XVI. \ ' IN SIGHT OF THE PROMISED LAND. The horses had shown more or loss terror when the earth trembled, but thoy were so tired it did not ta'ie much to quiet them. Besides, Vladimir was on hand to exorcise his Boothing influence over the beasts. "To your seat, master," he said. Tho pursuers must be very close at hand, and it would be dangerous to tarry. Again progress was resumed, and tho scene of the barrier left behind.. Dugdale breathed easier. Surely so long as thoy had Vladimir with them they bad little reason to bo worried ; his ingenuity could accom plish that which the lack of speed in their horses failed to gain, and Gene ral Gratschetf would find a foeman worthy of his metal in tho Don Cos sack. . Then came the roar of anger and tho maledictions that announced the arrival of the Horsemen at the scene of the late avalanche. It must have been music to Vladi mir's heart. Doubtless his back,where | the cruel lash had ouco been laid, and which burned evor sinc...
Deadly French. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 20 November 1914
Deadly French. When Mark Twain was a young re porter in San Francisco ho made up his mind to learn the . French lungunge. He did* not. want "to go to the expense of a teacher ; and so ho-bought a grammer and. conversa tion book, and set to . work. Be fore breakfast he poured over the lessons; late in the evening he was at it again; and every available mo ment of the day he employed with equal assiduity. . He soon began to look about for opportunities to make use of his new accomplishment. Accordingly he began to eat at a French res taurant once a week. Ono day, as he and his room mate were coming out of the res taurant, they found on the sidewalk Just outside the door a French man. He was asking first one passer-by and then oaotfeer the .way to a certain street, but no one understood him. That was Mark's chance. .The Frenchman looked at him 'with wistful eyes, and began to talk. Mark listened attentively. Three or four times the stranger was Compelled to repeat his question; then Ma...

The officer of the guard spoke a few . words to bis men, then clamber ed up alongside of Vladimir and di rected him to drive through the gate way in tho wall. Dugdale felt that he was in a seri ous predicament, yet he managed to contain himself and appear at least undisturbed. An bour would probably fetch the old general and his weary escort to town. Should the commandant at Smolensk take it into his stubborn head to detain them that long, in spite of .passport and a desire on their part to continue tho journey with all speed, well, the deuce must be to pay. He. looked about him with an air of interest that might not bo wholly assumed.

THE DAIRY PASTEURISED CREAM. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 20 November 1914
THE DAIRY PASTEURISED CREAM. Pasteurised cream (or butter mak-, ing is more easily ripened than raw cream. The process of pasteurisation destroys the germs in the cream, and then the germs of the starter can develop freely, having no other kinds of bacteria to contend with. Pasteurised milk is not suitable for cheese, as the heat alters the ture of the milk constituents which the rennet works on. A good curd cannot be obtained from pasteurised milk. When milk gets burned on tho in side of the Pasteuriser it forms, a thin layer of a substance known as milk-stone. This tnilk-stone forms an insulation, thus making it-difficult to heat the milk to the denired tem perature. The best way to remove milk-stone from dairj utensi^ is to U6e a preparation known as chalk soap, which should be at all dairies where a pasteuriser is installed. Milk is usually sterilised in glass bottles, which are hermitically sealed immediately the sterilisation is com pleted. This milk will Vnep for ah in defini...

TELEPHONE EXPERIMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 20 November 1914
TELEPHONE EXPERIMENT) In experimenting with tele: home, surprising results wore obtained by a Danish engineer named Petersen, b^ simply heating the transmitter. It was found that this increased the volume of sound very considerably. In fact, a transmitter thus heated bo increased tho volume of sound that the receiver, laid oh a table at the other end of the line, delivered the speech so plainly that all at a far corner of a big room away from it hearil every word distinctly. Before the transmitter was heated thiB was impossible. A Paris telegraph engineer named Germain made practically the same discovery some time before, but it was not put to use; Now Professor Hannover, of ,jthe.^jjanish. State Ex perimental establishment, has taken up the matter, and finds that a sim ple apparatus, may be made for heating the microphone transmitter of a .telephone, and.thereby, enable messages to be transmitted by tele phone a much greater distance than is possible under" ordinary conditions.
