SOMETHING SCIENTIFIC. ELECTRIC SHOCKS THAT OUTSPEED THE NERVES. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 30 January 1915

SOMETHING SCIENTIFIC. i ELECTRIC SHOCKS THAT OUT SPEED THE NERVES. The advances in the understanding; of the effect of electricity upon health are being greatly assisted by recent work on high tension currents. It is now seen that it is possible to giv? an electric shock of such immense voltage that it is entirely painless to the patient ; whereas, st shock of only half the force wonld set i:p acute nervous vibration and twitch ings. The cause of this apparent para dox is that a high voltage current can be raised so high by a step-ur> transformer that its speed of vibra tion is faster than the nerves can register in the terms of pain, and the feeling of presstire^ is^-easily bearable. The nerve fibres, like all sensitive parts of the body,_. have_ a range of sensitiveness. Thus, for example, th" vocal chords have a certain register Tor sounds, which runs lower in the male and higher in the female. There are numberless sounds, both lower and higher than these notes, but we cannot ...

CHAPTER VIII. A NURSE, A SWEETHEART, AND THE POWER BEHIND THE THRONE. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 30 January 1915

CHAPTER VIII. A NURSE^ A SWEETHEART, AND THE POWER BEHIND THE THRONE. While it is true that our fortunes are in the main the result of our own efforts, it is none the less true that often mere chance has a surpris ing influence upon them. When the Infanta sighted the fili buster, there was a group on her deck, part of which group at least did not accord with the warlike ap pearance of the general assemblage. This group consisted of the com mander of the gunboat, Captain Dari gio, who was resplendent in his bril liant uniform ; Don Alphonso Galbre, an old courtier of Spain, now in wes tern waters on a special errand for the Spanish Government, and the Senorita Isabel, daughter of Don Al phonso, aged eighteen, and a beauty if ever old Spain produced one. And it was evident that Captain Darigio fully concurred in this judgment, for while his words were frequently aim ed at the old courtier, his eyes rarely left the level of the lovely senorita's black eyes or ricb red lips. The senorit...

FART 4. CHAPTER VII.—(Continued.1) ; Oliver so far improved that he sat :ip in bed. The doctor said that by the time the steamer reached New York again he would be able to walk. Alas ! if he never walked till then ! "Are you sure of the spot ?" asked the man who had- charge of the ex dition of the captain. "Are you sure you can land safely on Bahia- Point ? I understand Weyler had the place well guarded." ^'Weyler ! I'll bet he don't know where Bahia Point is. Weyler is like an ostrich that sticks his head in the sand and thinks he is under cover. Weyler places a strong guard round his own sacred person and declares 'hat all the strategic points are well 'guarded. We car. land all right—if we get there." "We should be there by to-morrow night." "If all goes well, and Pedro has done his duty, these goods will be in the hands of the men by to-morrow night—at midnight. The devil !" The exclamation was brought out by "Smoke on the port bow !" from the look-out. All. eyes were bent towar...

A CURIOUS NEWSPAPER. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 30 January 1915

I A CURIOUS NEWSPAPER. One of the queerest newspapers in. j the world is the 'Kamloops Wawa,' a; journal printed in shorthand by a: . tribe of Indians who live in the in-; terior of British Columbia. It was established through the efforts of' a French missionary, Le Jeune, by name, who went to the Fraser River ! district of British Columbia a few ! years ago. He found the natives su j perstitious, ignorant, and unable to I write their language. He soon learn | ed the Indian vocabulary, and then began to write it by means of short hand signs which represented all.the sounds the Indians use in pronounc ing! the words. • Le Jeune first explained his system to an intelligent Indian lad who lived in the .central village. The bos took to it intuitively. In a few weeks he had thoroughly learned the art of writing his language in shorthand,; and began to teach his friends. The ' new "talk language" created wlHe-' spread interest; and the Indians, old and young, were soon engaged in practisi...

A NERVE-TRYING ORDEAL. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 30 January 1915

A NERVE-TRYING ORDEAL. - A In the early part of July.' . I860,; Blondin, the famous tightrope walker; performed his remarkable feat of walking across Niagara Falls with man on his back. Nearly five months were spent in making the rope, which was three inches in diameter and two thousand feet long. It was then " placed :In position with guv-ropes and every precaution for safety. Everything being ready, Colchard. took his place on Blondin's back, and • they started to cross the rope. The! passage was begun from the Cana-1 dian side. Below them two hundred j and fifty feet roared the river, ready \ to claim them, should Blondin make; one slip. To make matters worse the' great rope before them began to swing alarmingly, and it was after wards ascertained that it had been swinging fully forty feet in the cen tre. Still moving on steadily, Blon din never faltered. i When they had gone about ten feet ( on the middle span, someone on the J American side pulled the outer guy | rope (supposed...

•PART. 5. v CHAPTER IX. HOME- AGAIN—HORRIBLE SUS PICIONS. Once more we must transfer our at tention for a short time from Dorsey and his aSairs to Oliver Baytridge, whom' we left in Morro Castle—that dread and loathsome relic of Spain's centuries of tyranny and oppression. No matter how much the Captain General disliked the prospect of part ing with his American prisoners, it must be done. The power of Don Al phonso Galbre at the Court of Mad rid was too1 well known for one who livcfd by favour of that same Court to disobey his commands. So, accord ing to the mandate of the don, a week after he and his lovely Isabel had departed for Spain, the doors of Morro Castle opened and the Ameri cans were free. There were but four of these, two of whom only claim our interest. These were Baytridge and his friend, the doctor cf the Marietta. The doctor, thanks to his youth and constitution, came from the frowning portals in r.sarlv as good condition as he entered ; Oliver, in fact, came forth ...
