[with supplement.] Published Every Saturday. saturday, january 17, 1814. Apparently the business people o! Talbot, and, for that matter, anyone else, do not consider the erection of a telephone line be tween Talbot and Lexton, via Caralulup and Evansford, would be of any benefit to tbem or tbe district generally; that is if we are able to judge by the attend ance at the public meeting called for Wednesday evening by the Mayor, There was an attend ance of seven persons, namely, the Mayor (Or Beresford), Cr Gane, Cr Chalmers (secretary of the local Proapectin; and Pro gressive Association), Cr Ead and Mr Rogers (president and vice president respectively of the as sociation), Mr Salmon (town clerk and a member of committee iot the association), and .

REASONS FOR ADVERTIS ING. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 17 January 1914

REASONS FOR ADVERTIS ING. -;u; Many business men advertise only at ' certain seasons of the year, many pre ferring the fall of early spring. -But the experience of advertisers who have made he subject a stud/ is that persistent ad vertising is the best and returns more profit considering the outlay than adver tising by fits anri starts. It keeps one al ways before the public in a sense, and the prayer of the daily or weekly repeti I tion of an advertisement is inestimable A French writer payp that the first time a person sees an advertisement he hardly : notices it; the second time, he remembers he has seen it before ; the third time, ho reads it; the fourth time, he wonders if it meets hiB wants ; and the fifth time, he buys the article. This, at least, is human nature. -A single-insertion of an.adver tisement seldom produces much imprea si on, but let that advertisement be ro poated for a month or six months, and satisfactory results generally will follow People remember that they...

SPEED OF ANIMALS. Ifc is believed tliat no animal has ever exceeded tho speed which can be attained by the horse. Instantaneous photographs of one famous specimen showed tho full length of a complete stride to be about twenty-sis feet-. Tho hare has not in reality tho speed of } the dog. The dog, on the other hand, ! does not attain the speed of the horse. The giraffe is said to run at the rate of fifteen yards per second under tho most favorable conditions.

THE ART OF THE CONJUROR. j Science has enabled modern conjur ors to do tricks that would fill the old school of magicians with wonder. Wherever applicable to the 6tage, the modem 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 trick performed long ago consist ed of pouring from a single bottle sev eral different _ liquids into glass® set. upon a table in full view of the audi ence. In the first glass, was water, in the next wine, in 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 the magician did not permit tho bottle to go out of his hand to be examined by tlie audience; but the re cent discoveries of chemists enable t...

While inspecting the toys and trinkets that verc manufactured by the French pris oners in the depot there, my attention was attracted by <1 little toy house with a wheel in the gallle that was running rapidly round, impelled bv the activ ity of a common mouse. For one shil ling I purchased the house, the mouse and the wheel. But how to apply half-ounce power, which is the. weight of a mouse, to a useful purpose was the difficulty. At length the manufacture of v sewing thread seemed the most practicable. _ - Tlio investigator found that an ordin ary mouse would run on "the average ten and a-half miles a day; he had 0110 mouse that ran the remarkable distance of eighteen miles in that time.
