THE ART OF THE CONJUROR. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 17 January 1914
THE ART OF THE CONJUROR. Science has enabled modern conjur ors to do tricks, that would fill the old school of magicians with wonder. Wherever applicable to the stage, the modern magician has adopted the no; vel features of inventions^ and, com bining then with his sleight of-hand, has brought forth an entirely new style of magio. * A triok performed long ago consist ed of pouring from a single bottle sev eral different liquids into glasses set upon a table in full view of the audi ence. In the first glass -was water, in the next wine, ia the next milk. The secret lay in the construction of the bottle, which was composed of vari ous chambers. In each of these was placed a certain liquid, the flow being controlled by valves in the bottle's neck immediately under the finger of the ma gician. The great weakness^ of the trick lay in this—that tho magician did. not permit the bottle, to go. out of his hand to be examined by the audience; but the Te cent discoveries of chemists enable the...

HISTORY OF THE SAW. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 17 January 1914
HISTORY OF THE 8AW. The oarlest tool that has been traced •n Egyptian history is the saw. It was found first in the form of a notched bronze knife in the third dynaety, or about five thousand years before the Christian era, and was followed in the fourth and fifth dynasties by large toothed saws, which were used by car penters ; but: there are no dated speci mens until the seventh century before the Christian era, when the Assyrians used iron saws. The first knives on reoord 'were made out of flint, and were, in f«at,. saws with minute teeth. They probably were used-for-catting up animals,' as the- teeth would break - away even on 'soft wood.

THE INDUSTRIOUS MOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 17 January 1914
THE INDU8TRIOU8 MOUSE. Many years ago a studious Scotsman | named David Hutton proved that ] stores of the profitable energy were no-1 ing to waste among those tiny but j active folk, the ordinary domestic mice. In the summer of 1812 I had oeca-1 sion (he wrote) to be in Perth. While inspecting the toys and trinkets that were manufactured by the French pris- ■ oners in the depot there, my attention ! was attracted by a little toy house with ; a wheel in the [table that was running rapidly round, impelled bv the activ ity of a common mouse. For one shil ling I purchased the house, the mouBo and the wheel. But how to apply hnlf-ounco power, which, is tho weight of a mouse, to a useful purpose was the difficulty. At length the manufacture of sewing thread seemed the most practicable. _ The investigator found that an ordin ary mouse would run on the average ten and a-half miles a day; he had one mouse that ran the remarkable distance of eighteen, miles in that time. A half penny's worth...

ASHES FOR PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 17 January 1914
ASHES FOR PIGS. It has been noted by pig-breeders that health and thrift are prolonged to' a great degree by allowing con stant access to ashes, and If salt be mixed with them, the effect is still wore marked, and the composition is partaken of with greater relish. All feeders who have tried it pronounce the benefits unmistakable, and re sults most gratifying. Prof. Henry made some experiments in this line, and the following is what came of It: "Three pigs were taken at , five months of age, and closely confined and fed maize-meal and hardwood ashes for six weeks. During this time they gained five and a-half pounds each per week, and consumed 28% pounds of maize-meal per week. For thirteen weeks thereafter they were fed no ashes whatever, and fell off in the consumption of com meal to the average of 19% pounds per week. Sev eral other experiments were tried, all showing the same approximate re sults." Feeding pigs is a sure paying crop, if good judgment In selection prevail, and eco...
