RESOURCEFUL. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 28 August 1914
RESOURCEFUL The late General Booth," said a! Salvation Array official, "often used j to urge the ' down-and-outer ' to cul- j tivate the quality of resourcefulness, i "He would illustrate this quality I by the story of a resourceful! American editor, who found,, one! night, that ho had neither adver- j tisements nor copy for his. third ! page. The page accordingly ap peared blank, with a note in small] type at the top : " 'This space will be useful for the ' children to write upon.' " To make fly-papers boil linseed oil with a little resin till it forms a stringy paste when cold. Spread this on paper, using a large brush. This is inexpensive, and makes one of the best traps for flies.
A Seal Story. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 28 August 1914
A Seal Story. The following article on " Seals as pets" may be of interest, say* a correspondent. While shore-shoot ing on one of the Orkney islands, I suddenly stumbled on a young seal which had evidently been enjoj*ing a nap. Being anxious to capture it alive and uninjured, I was at a loss how to proceed until I re called some of the reminiscences of a near neighbour, an old Davis-Strait man. Profiting by this recollection I picked up a handy tangle-stalk and, ever so lightly, struck the seal over the snout. The effect was as tonishing. With a tremulous move ment of the entire body the animal rolled over on its back, the fore flippers waving patheticalljr for a moment as if deploring the inhu manity of man. Catching sight of an old sack washed up on the beach I then pulled it hastily over the head of the stunned animal, and slinging the burden on my back soon had the satisfaction of feeling that my cap tive was very much alive. For over a week I kept him anchored by one of his tai...
BIRD SAGACITY. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 28 August 1914
BIRD SAGACITY. 4 A friend residing on the abort of Loch Linnho tells me, soys a cor* respondent, of a curious instance of bird sagacity that came under his observation last year. In a neigh bour's garden a pair of redstarts had built their nest and hatchod ' out their young. Before the birds were fully fledged, my friend happen ed to visit the owner of the gar den and to examino the nest and its contents. The fledglings num bered four, and, on handling them, he discovered that one of them had its leg newly broken. How the Occident had occurred, it was impos sible to conjecture, but the fact remained that tho unlucky bird would not bo able to fend for it self ns soon as the other members of the brood. My correspondent ex pressed n desire to take tlie cripple home with him, so that he mvght provide for its well-being until the injured limb would heal. This ar rangement was agreed to, and the chick was deposited on a bed of dry grass within n small basket. The receptacle was taken int ...

OFFICIAL NEWS. The following mossagea have been received : BATTLE ON FRENCH FRONTIER BRITISH FOROE IN ACTION. From Sir George Reid London, 24th Augnat. Omioul The British forces were engaged on Sunday and Sunday night in the neighborhood of M.ons, and held their ground. The Germans took the firat line of defence, Namur, necessitating the withdrawal of portion of the allied troops from the line of the Sanibre to the original defensive posi tion on the French frontier. The Germana took Namur. RELIABLE. The enemy continues the movement south from Brussels. Its chief strength is massed between Mona and Namur. The Germans neglected Antwerp. Ghent has not been occupied. The French reverse in Lorraine is confirn-ed. The first important battle of the Ruaaiana near Gumbinnen ended in rout of enemy. The Russians hold Insteiburg, and are approaching Konig6berg. The Russian advance on Auatria is satisfactory. Austria's attack on Servia is diminishing. London, 25th August. Official The British f...
Effect of Mind and Body. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 28 August 1914
Effect of Mind and Body. "The exaltation of victory makes wounded soldiers oblivious of gain, and the depression of defeat in creases mortality. If a cat is frightened for ten or fifteen min utes by a barking dog, a sample of its blood will make strips of certain muscles relax when they are immersed in it, though such a por tion of blood hod no effect on them before the emotional disturbance. Frightened rabbits show almost complete prostration, and their brain cells, in contrast with those of nor mal animals, take a deeper stain from certain chemicals, and their size and shape are strikingly al tered." These well vouched state ments are made by Mr. F. W. Eastman, and he adds an interesting experiment. "If an individual is placed in circuit with a delicate galvanometer and made to laugh, to feel sad, or is suddenly surpris ed, there will be movements in the instrument indicating the passage of small electric currents. Such in teresting scientific facts as these, and many others, make...
The Commonwealth Elections. LIBERAL WORKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 28 August 1914
1 The Commonwealth Eleotions. LIBERAL WORKERS. The federal elections ate close at hand, but the war has overshadowed the fublic interest in them. The first question which the elector as he opens his morning paper is not, "How fares onr party in the political struggle V'bufhow goes it with Britain and tier allies at the Bent of wari" Wo one droams that it can be otherwise, no one wishes it to be otherwise. Mcio than that, there is r.o sane Liberal, no sane Lnborite, who, were the choice forced on him, would not leave his party in its fight for all that is dearest. In the intensity of their patriotism, some people have grown rather mor- 1 bid in their aversion to everything which smacks for party strife. War has been declared, and they urge we Bhould be like the Romans, " when none was for a party, when all were for the State." That is true enough, but behind it is the assumption, that men cannot stand by their political principles without indulging in abuse, or in criticism so causti...
If Only We Had Keener Senses. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 28 August 1914
If Only We Had Keener Senses. - * Of cotira* everyone know* by now that everything: w« hear or Bee conies in a wave motion. But it is not so well known that there I are a groat many waves that we 1 ennnot delect at all by means of any of our senses, and presumably a great many more that we have never been able to detcct even ar tificially. Take other waves, for instance. We know that those of a certain length are heat wave?; they can be felt, but not seen. Shorter ones are light waves, from the long red to the short violet. Even shorter ones are what are known .as the ultra-violet, and these have to be detected artificially, by the taking of a picture in the dark. Even shorter ones are the X-rays, which are in visible. Much longer ones than the longest heat wave nre the electric waves of wireless telegraphy. Now, remember that all the waves spe cified difler in only one particular -that of length. We cannot conceive (says A. I'. Hodges, writing in the American "Sundav Magazine") of ...

HUMAN NATURE. ECCENTRICITIES OF THE GREAT. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 28 August 1914
HUMAN NATURE. ECCENTRICITIES OF TUB GREAT. In an interesting articl* in the "New York Tribune," .ntitf«rt "-Ec centricities of tb« Groat," Mr. Ed" win Tarrisse presents * of notable people who h*v shown pe culiarities of on© sort or another. : Kant, tho Gorman metaphysician, he says, stands at the head of the class of truly great eccentricities. Ono of Kant's hobbw* in the art of taking car© of himself was to avoid garters. He permitted no ligature to bo placed on any part of his body, fearing to hinder in the slight est degree tho circulation of the blood. He found it necessary at the same time to keep up his stockings. Ac cordingly, he had loops attached to them, and outside each hip he wore a contrivance that may l>e called a box windlass. These affairs some what resembled an angler's reel with a spring, -which secured the line at any given point. A VIOLINIST'S REVENGE. Pnganini had hi* share of eccen tricity.

MATURING CHEESE BY ELECTRICITY. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 28 August 1914
MATURING CHEESE BY ELECTRI CITY. An industrial electrician of Rotter dam is reported to have discovered a method of giving age to cheese by means of electricity. After a lonp series of experiments, be found that he could take an absolutely fresh cheese and give it all the consis tency, taste, and appearance of a fine cheese that had t>een stored awaj and carefully aged for two years. ! He takes a fresh cheese and sub jects it to an alternating current. At the end of twenty-four hours of con stant alternating electrical currents , through this cheese it possesses all the properties of a fine two-yoar-old cheese, I This has naturally aroused great interest in Holland, where cheese making is one of the big industries. ilt is said the electrician claims he can do many other things with cheese by means of electricity, including an ? apparatus that will enable the manu facturer to so gratuate and direct electrical action of this nature as to I give cheese any taste desired, and any con...

Great Battle Proceeding. BRITISH ARMY IN ACTION. GERMANS ENTER BRUSSELS. NAMUR FALLS TO ENEMY. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 28 August 1914
Great Battle Proceeding. BRITISH ARMY IN ACTION. GERMANS ENTER BRUSSELS. NA&1UR PALLS TO ENEMY. That tho British Expeditionary Force which recently landed in Franco has already been acth oly engaged with the enemy is shown by (be latest r&lt; ports from the seat of war. These were to tho effect that a fierce batMe, which was expected to last for several days, was raging from Mons, in Belgium, a little to tho north of Maubeugo, to the Luxemburg frontier In connec tion with this battle it was further stated that the French were every where taking the offensive in conjunc tion with the British against nearly the whole of the German army. From later reports it would appear that a portion of the allied forces had been forced by the Germans tD retire from the line along the Sambre River to their original position on tho French frontirr With regard to the Liege forts, the reports are of a somewhat contradictory nature. Whilst from Paris it has hern officially stated that th...

THE DAIRY DEHORNING THE DAIRY CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 28 August 1914
THE DAIRY 1 -f - ( DEHORNIN0 THE DAIRY OATTLBi Owner* of farm cattla havo a mis taken idea of beauty when they think a cow or a bull is more attractive '? with the horns on. For safety's sake, if for no- other reason, the cattlt should be dehorned, both to keep them from injuring each other and from doing bodily harm to persons on the farm. Horns have no possible use to any domestic animal and should be removed at an early age. When cattle roamed wild, horns were Nature's provision for deferic* and guard against enemies. In the struggle for existence in the early days, when cattle in a wild state ol nature had to hold their own with other beasts of the fields, horns wert a valuable asset. Now when th-\y are bred for domestic purposes and have nothing from which to defend them selves, the horns have absolutely nc use, and a cow should be considered more valuable without them. Animals on which the horns arc left, possess more or les^ of their former fighting instinct. They otter, do m...
