Shoulder Braces. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 8 January 1892

Shoulder Braces. Ordinarily, the use of thoulder braces is not to.be advised. All they can do is to hold the shoulder back mechanically, where as the true method of correcting a tendency to stoop is to regulerly develop the muscles which draw the shoulders beck. Tile wear ing of shoulder braces puts the muscles en tirely at rest and they thus lose what vigor they possess, growing weaker and weaker. Any exercise which brings the arms into play will help to tone up and strengthen the nmuscles of the back and cheat. Exercising with chesst weights is excellent, and so is the swinging of Indian clubs and the use of dumb bells. It is .astonishing how many people are stoopashouldered and lopsided to a greater or less degree. There are very few whose muscuilar development is so symmetrical but there is a slight curvature of the spine. Bight:handed people, very many of them, have the left shoulder higher than the right because of the slight curvature in the spine brought on by making the mus...

At The Bottom of The Sea. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 8 January 1892

At The : otton of The Sea. At the depth of about .,500 feet waves are. not felt. Tue temperature ts the enme,vary ong only a trifle from the ice of thenorth polo to the burning ean of the equstor. A ttilef lown the water has a pressure of over a ton to the Fauero inch. If a bx six feet wide were fiiled with rea water and allotted to evaporate under the un, thereo would be two incoes of salt left on the botrom. Taking the average depth of the ocean to be three miles, there would be a layer of pure salt 2:30 fetlthick on the bed of the Atlantic. The water is colder at the bottom than at the surface. In many baey on the coasn of ;or way the water often freezes at the bottom before it does above. Waves are very deceptive. To look at them in a storm one would think the water travelled. The water stays in the camS place, but the motion roes on. Sometimes in storms these waves are forty feet high and travel fifty miles an hour-more thaen twice as fast as the swiftest steamship.

Can These Things Be? [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 8 January 1892

Can These Things Be ? o- - The chief French surgeons and medical professors have for some time been carefully studying the effect of mesmerism on the female patients of the Salpetriere hospital, and PA. Bsbinski, a clinical surgeon of thaC establishment, has effected a series of ex. periments which would seem to open up a new future for medical science. In proving that certain hysterical symptoms could be transferred by aid of the magnet from one patient to another, he took two subjects, one a dumb woman afflicted with hysteria, and the other a female who was in a state of hypnotic trance. A ecreen was placed be. tween the two and the hysterical woman put under the influence of a strong magnet. After a few moments she was able to speak, while the one in the hypnotic trance was rendered as dumb as the hysterical woman had been. Luckily for the healthier patients, these transformations were only tem. porary. Kleptomaniaes bare a taking way with $hem.

A Bridge Built by Red Ants. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 8 January 1892

A Bridge Built by Red Ants. -4---~ The following remarkable story, told by an eye witness, is entitled to a place among the instances of intelligence among the lower animals. A cook was much annoyed to find his pastty shelves attacked by ants. By careful watching it was discovered that they came out twice a day in search of food, at about seven in the morning and four in the afternoon. How were the pies to be pro tected against the invaders t He did not have long to wait, for at 6'50 o'clockhe noticed that off in the left hand corner of the pantry was aline of anis slowly making their way in the direction of the pies. They seemed like a vast army coming forthto attack the enemy. In front was a leader, who was larger than any of the others, and who always kept a little ahead of his troops. Theywere of the sort known as the me. dium sized red ant, which is regarded as the most intelligent of its kind, whose scientific name is Formica rubra. About 400 ants out of 500 stepped out and jo...
