Animal's Self-curative Instincts. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 20 November 1914

Animal's Self-curative Instincts. It is well Icriown that animals pos ses* strong self-curative instincts. Dogs and cats when indisposed will eat grasses that havo a medicinal action usually of an emetic or pur gative nature. The fibrous-rooted wheat-grass, Triticum caninuni, is ; frequently eaten by the former. If nn animal has boon injured it is noticcd continually to lick the affected part, which, says J>r. T. Wilson Parry, in some admirable i notes on the subject, is a somotvhnt crude combination of our modern fomentation and massage. Prehis toric man would most certainly have licked his wounds. Lator, when he had lost some of his earliest animal instincts, he would observo what animals did and imitate them. Thus the ,uso of hellebore was belioved to havo been discovered from the goat. Virgil tells us that dittany was "eaten by wild goats when they were shot with darts." Pliny tells us that bleeding was taught man by the hippopotamus, " that intelligent animal finding himself...

Yankee "Drummers." AND FOREIGN ORDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 20 November 1914

Yankee "Drummers.". AND FOREIGN ORDERS. A writer who is contributing to , the New York "Sun" a series of entertaining "Nifty Lessons of Sales manship," combines husiour and common8cnse, and at the same time ] gives a good example of spirited American journalese.11 The extract isf from a lesson on collecting or ders abroad. ' ( . Many firms send thcli* men ten thousand miles afield, and then when Ihe men drop anchor and get ready ' for business they find they can't do a piastre's worth, because dear firms expect them to sell to the wholesale trade at prices that the consumer gets in America. Such firms get tho idea that foreign ha-, tions are still living in the trees and eating cocoanuts. Thoy think their goods are going to prove such ' eye-bulgerB to the natives that they will throw a stampede to get them at any old price. For instance, the minute you alight on a foreign shore you don't need to think you are compelled by pa triotic duty to .appoint yourself Press agent for Uncle Sa...

A WHISTLER STORY. We find in the Washington "Star" a Whistler story that is told by Joseph Pennell, hims«U a distin guished artist. Whistier, when an art student, used to copy celebrated paintings in the'Louvre." ;i found him there one day, hard at work on a copy of the famous "Mona Lisa." "You've done a fine thing there," I remarked, for the copy Trios a good one. t"Yes," Whistler agreed, "I am pleased with it," and then, in his whimsical way, he added "I wonder what they'll do with the poor old original now ?" | A teacher,« noticing the boy's in- i I tercet in the study of insects, and j cspccially of moths, advised him to find a . book in the library upon | the subject of moths. i "I did, and it wasn't any help," I said' Bobby.

A Loyal Ruse. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 20 November 1914

A Loyal Ruse. In 1805 Ferdinand IV. was drivon from the throne of Naples. All tho members of his family, cxccpt an aged half-sister, fled to Sicily. Of the lonely old Bourbon princess who remained in the land where her family had reigned a touching little story is told. The victorious French, who had driven Ferdinand from the throne, treated the old lady with every consideration. The new king, Jo seph IJonaparte, left her proporty and her income virtually intact. But he did order that the sentry who always had stood before the door of the princess and had 'saluted when she passed, should be removed. And on this point, in spite of the prin cess's pleas, he remained firm. The .Bourbons had ceased to reign, he said; and no royal honours could properly be accorded < to a member of the family. The loss of this mark of respect wounded the princess more deeply than many more serious losses had done. For the first time she felt herself an outcast, an exile in her own land. She gr...

Preventing Collisions at Sea. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 20 November 1914

Preventing Collisions at Sea. Tho collision disaster in the St. Lawrence has ratsod interest again in Sir Hiram S. Maxim's inven tion, explained at the time of tho Titanic affair. It is well known that bats cap avoid, in the dark, even suspended Hilk-thrcaris, and enn find their way, in full flight, amid the intricacies of caves absolutely dark. Sir Hirant says they manage this by a special sense. A bat is provided with a "receiving apparatus" on tho face, which registers, practically instantly, the echoes of the vibrations sot up by the rapid movement of its wings, and gives it accurate knowlodge of tho place, distance, and sizo of obstructions. Sounds that are below human hearing, such as those set up by tho movements of a bat's wings, still can travel to a great distance, and can be received again us echoes, with suitable apparatus.. Sir Hiram lias designed an ap paratus which can send out sounds' below human hearing, and which can register tho return waves of such sounds ; from,...

IRELAND'S REBELLION OF '98. Tho Irish Question has always .figured largely in the history of Eng land. From time to time there have been rebellions in Ireland, the most famous of these being one in 1708,' when an insurrection broke out, and assumed such threatening proportions that a largo body of troops were dfcs^atched from Eng land to quell it. Ireland at this time being under martial law, tho English yeomanry had a free hand in dealing with law-breakers. Floggings and execu tions were common occurrcnces, and the peasantry, seething with dis content, rose in rebellion under the leadership of Father Murphy.

16 Days Without Food. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 20 November 1914

16 Days Without Food. t That Mr. Savage Landor, the eminent explorer, is well qualified to criticise, as he has been doing, the report of Mr. Theodore Roose velt's travels and discoveries in Bra zil, cannot be denied; for it is doubtful if any man has a wider knowledge of tha£ part of the world. And torriblo indeed were his experiences when ho made his last journey through the unexplotod parts of South America. For eighteen months Mr. Landor buried himself in Brazil,, journeying 14,000 miles, many on foot, through the wildest regions, and such hardships did he endure that it took him several months after his return in 193 2 to recovor from the effects of the trip. CRIMINAL SERVANTS* The object of his expedition was scientific, and he described enormous zigzags across South America in order to visit regions which, to quote his own words, "interested mo by reason that they were abso lutely unknown.

The Comic Republic. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 20 November 1914

The Comic Republic. If there is a genuine "comic opera" Stat* in the world, it roust surely be Haiti, the black republic in the West Indies. Tho natives love show, and the national army has more generals in it than pri vates. Tho army is 8,000 strong ; 0,500 are genoralfl. A Canadian visitor. who was watching a Haitian general drill* ing a body of troops a f$w years ago commented upon the magnifi cent sword the general was wearing. Jestingly, he asked, "What will you take for it ?" The general atoppod the drill at once and answered, "Two dollar, suh." "Too much ; I'll give you one dol lar," said the visitor, pulling out the money. Tho general handed over his sword, pocketed the money, and, borrowing a walking-stick, continued tho drill. . Once an American gunboat hap pened to be in the harbour of Port au Prince, Haiti's capital, on Wash ington's birthday. At* noon they fired tho national salute of twenty one guns.

Living 120 Years. The proposal to present next year a golden book, which will form a unique record of the latest scien tific . researches, to Professor Metch nikSff, 'generally regarded as the world's greatest scientist, to com memorate his seventieth birthday and scientific jubilee,., calls attention to his startling views on life. Death, according to the Professor, is premature if it comes before the age of 100. "Strong people," he says, "should livo to be 120." Ac cording to his discoveries, prema ture decay, which ends so many lives, is closely connected with the food we eat. Certain bac-_ teria cause fermentation in the body and so poison us, and if wo could avoid taking these lu-J. to our systems, or find healthy ba- j cilli which would war against them, we should last much longer. That is why the Professor advo cates living largely on fresh and sour milk, and cheese made from the latter. " Eat plenty of fresh, well-cooked vegetables, too," he ' says, "They are not, as most ve...
