SHAKESPEARE ON THE GERMANS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 1 October 1915

SHAKESPEARE ON THE GERMANS. | '11 io Germans, grudging England eny , thing uiideniably good', insist that Shakespeare is "essentially Teutonic," and tkat all that is best'in him is alien to the land that bred him. This being their opinion of the bard, it will be amusing to search out the bard's opin ion of them, and to ascertain whether in the corners of his capacious sou! thero lurked noma half-unconscious al i'ection for his real Father laud, Shakespeare does not, so far ae we remember, allow any Germans to fret their hour upon his stage, unless, in deed it bo Kosoncrantz and Guilden stern, the only contemptible nersons in "Hamlet." They were probably Danish subjects, but Uennan Danes for all that. Danes lrom tho bordoriana. Theirs are tho only strikingly German names in the play.

FIVE RULES FOR FORTUNE 1. Cultivate and perfect JQUr ideas. Experiment The world is eager for something new, which, however simple it may be, will save labor or expense, or do things better. Let it be more convenient, or promote pleasure-re duce waste. People who handle things in every day use are the natural inventors of boiler things, and the natural capital ists of to-morrow. Read the splendid advice that Edison gives. Learn the procedure as to patenting in the chief countries-then secure your own legal monopoly for your rights by becoming n patentee. 2. If that workman or foreman, or your ingenious friend has prodnced a clever invention, put him on the track of famous and wealthy inventors. Mr F.

A STRANGE DELUSION. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 1 October 1915

STRANGE DELUSION. The uneducated peasants in tlio Oherson province of Russia have an extraordinary belief that the Tsar has only ono ear. They aro confirmed in their belief by pictures and photo graphs of the Tsnr showing a side-face view, and naturally exhibiting only one car. They aeocunt for the absence of the other in tho following manner. Some "time ago ,they say, a deputation from their provinco waited upon the Tsar, and in tho course of the meeting the Tsar is said to have stated that all Russian land would bo divided equally imong. the peasants of the various dis tricts. To this ono of the deputa tion boldly said: "As .surely as you cannot see either of your ears, you will hot divide the land." The Tsar's reply to this was to cut off one of his; ears, which he placed upon the table, r? nlarking as lie did so, "As surely as I now seo my ear, I will divide tho land. To this day the Cherson peasants firmly believe .that ho has only one ear, and unless tho Tsar visits them in pe...

LIFE ON THE MOON. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 1 October 1915

LIFE ON THE MOON. A long discussion was precipitated at a recent meeting of the British Astro nomical Association by an article pub lished by Professor W. II. Pickering in Popular Astronomy, in which the writer appeals to astronomers-and especially amateurs, becauso "scarcely any pro fessional astronomers look at tho moon nowadays" -to report their observa tions of apparent changes on the moon, so that "wo shall at length nail that ancient falsehood that 'tho moon is a dead planet.' " Professor Pickering began asserting the existence of vegeta tion on tho moon more than twenty years ago, and has been writing ou this subject at frequent intervals over since. The same idea has been favored by cer tain earlier astronomers, notably Sir William Herschel. Yet tho unqualified statement as to the complete lifoless ness of our satellito is repeated in al most every new book on astronomy. The subject is still a moot one, and the dis cussion above mentioned indicates that few members of the Br...

A HOSPITAL FAIRY STORY. THE OPEN-AIR TREATMENT AT OAMBRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 1 October 1915

A HOSPITAL FAIRY STORY. THE OPEN-AIR TREATMENT AT OAMBBIDGE. (From tho London "Spectator, J oly iiril.) The fame of the ''KYst Easter General Ifospital" at Cambridge has already spread far, and -we welcome an account o£ tlic origin, methods and marvellous successes of this hospital by the Alaster of Christ's Collego. The hospital, which was built very cheaply -natural'y enough, for in this sort of open-air hospital there is little to build -has produced more -wonderful results than the moat expensively equipped hos pitals in any of the great towns. All you have to do is to build Jittle enough to let tho pure air pass right through tho wards. Each ward has only threo walls, so that it is open to tho weather; and even tho back wall has a large aporture protected by '' louvres,'' so ?that tho air circulates very freely. In short, there is no more protection from tho weather than is necessary to keep the patients dry and free from draughts. AVc are all familiar with the open-air treatem...

DISTORTION OF THE FEET. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 1 October 1915

DISTORTION OF THE FEET. Distortion of tho fcot is soinotimes congenital, but more frequently tho re sult of bad nursing or of weakness, ex posure to the damp and cold, or vio lenco during infaney or early child hood. Oases in -which tho feet aro turn ed inwards or unnaturally outwards are generally remedial by the judicious UBO of proper bandages early applied; but if this be neglected in infancy tho de formity usually becomos incurable. Club-foot, of which thoro aro sovoral varioties, all exceedingly distressing and unsightly, may also be frequently, if not generally, relieved by, a simple operation which is perfectly '.safo in the hands of the experienced orthopaodic surgeon. Tho absolute necessity of pay i'ag due attention to tho feet, and of properly treating them if wo value our ease, comfort, and health, will bo seen even by those who, in order to bo'fash ionable, aro most prono to punish them, or who, from indolence and indifference, neglect them.
