No More Bald Heads. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 2 October 1914

No More Bald Heads. A method of sewing hairy in the human scalp in cases of partial or total baldness has been successfully used in several instances by Dr. Szekely at the hospital of ' Saint Stephane at Budapest, and a report appears in the "Times." The number of hairs "planted" in the head of a patient has been as many as 50,000. One hundred hairs are drawn through punc tures in the scalp to every square centimetre, and as both ends are left free, the number is thus 300, or over 1,000 to eacJi square inch. Very fine gold wires are used, one five-hundredth of an inch in diame ter, and fine long hairs from a woman's head are attached at the middle to these. The gold loop or knot acts as an "anchor," and after sterilization is introduced into the subcutaneous tissue, where it is slightly twisted, and holds the hair permanently in position. It is stated that 500 hairs can thus be introduced into the scalp within three-quarters of an hour. Dr. Szekely has designed a spe cial instrument...

Oldest Museum in the World. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 2 October 1914

Oldest Museum in World. *-. Dr. Otto Ivummel, head of the East Asiatic Department of the Berlin Museum of Ethnology, tells of the oldest museum in the world, in the bulletin of the. Societe Franco- Japonaise. This museum will be found in the city, of Kara, the former capital of Japan. Since its foundation, in 756, it went through all the chan ges of the Japanese Empire, with out one single addition to its col lection. Dr. Otto Kumrael is one of the few Europeans who were permitted to visit this museum. It opens its doors but once a year, on a day in spring, when a special commit tee inspects the collection, and a new list is made out. The museum contains about 3000 articles, which are said to be the most beautiful specimens of decora tive work which have ever been produced by human hand ; such as lacquer ware, " decorative furniture, enamel ware, cambric-like fabric, etc. The origin of the majority of the articles is uncertain ; some came from China and others from Ivorea; but most ...

Skyscraper Made of Glass. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 2 October 1914

Skyscraper [$ade of Glass. The latest wonder in i$«w York is a scaled skyscraper which, when completed, will be 78 per ccnt. glass, yet in the building there will be no windows th«t may be op en s'1 . The entire twelve storeys will be t^ht as a drum, the jrlass walls being set ia steel framework. There w ill be plenty of ventilation, how ever, and abundance of fresh air the year round supplied at an even, temperature by a new ventilating system. In cold weather the fresh atmos phere sucked in from without will be heated ; when the summer comes it will be cooled. At all seasons of the year it will be free from di sease-breeding germs, being care fully purified. The ventilating system is unique in its thoroughness. Air is sucked in through a special duct on the second floor, because air at this altitude has been found to be less impure than at greater heights. The air passes through "shower" cham bers, where the impurities are wash ed out oF-it. aft-er the manner of a rain-shower. "*....

Use for Smoke Rings. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 2 October 1914

Use for Smoke Rings. * 1 The distance from which an aver I age man can blow out a candle j rarely exceeds three feet. If he is [ an adept at blowing smoke rings, however, a candle may be extin ! guished at twelve feet. Of course, the smoke isn't necessary. An or dinary air ring will do, and has ! the added advantage of being invis ible. Simpljv pucker the mouth as you would to blow a smoke ring and expel air in a quick, sharp, manner. It takes a. good deal of practice to do it. An easier way to show the effect, | If one is doubtful, is to plac« a sheet j of cloth or canvas over the open I side of a box otherwise closed, f making a small, round hole in an j other side. Then tap in a sharp j manna- on the canvas, and invisible j air rings will be produced. If the ! hole is pointed at a person's face feel them as thrv strike his face. Only a few trials are necessary to ! extinguish a candle at twelve feet. To render the rings visible, a I smudge may be burned in the box, I or a small d...

LEARNED HORSES. ANIMALS THAT CAN TALK AND SPELL. MARVELS OF TRAINING. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 2 October 1914

LEARNED HORSES. 1 ANIMALS THAT CAN TALK AND SPELL. MARVELS OF TRAINING. It is strange that South Africa has taken, so small an interest in an amazing controversy which has separated the zoologists of the Con tinent into two hostile camps, in one of which, stranger still, the Je suit Father Wasinann and his arch opponent, the Agnostic, August J'orel, are lighting side by side. All this is over the question whe ther the feats of a few trained stallions are the true product of their mentality and education, or frauds, the result of trickery, con scious, unconscious, or sub-conscious on the part of their trainer, a mer chant of the flourishing manufactur- , ing town of Elbenfeld, in the Prus- | sian Rhineland. Sortie 12 years j hack, an eccentric old gentleman of j ?Berlin, von Osten b.v name, began j training a horse, which 'so profited hy his instructions that in a fow years "Clever Jack" (der kluge Hans) was able to count, to cipher, to read, and to recognise the d«y of tne week.

THE WEST WIMMERA MAIL AND NATIMUK ADVERTISER FRIDAY, OCTOBER 2. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 2 October 1914

THE WEST WIIPJERA MAIL A.N'D 5fATIMUK ADVERTISER FRIDAY, OCTOBER 2 . Anyone looking at the fat sheep and lamb? in Messrs Young Bros' yards at Natimuk on Tuesday last would have thought that, instead of being in the throes of a drought, the Wimmera was experiencing one of its best seasons. The firm's energetic representative, Mr John Sudholz, had been around the district buying, and that he had succeeded in satisfying the rendors was shown by the large number of drafts which were sent in on Tuesday. The size and condition of the sheep and lambs reflected the | greatest credit upon the breeders. Some of the merino wethers were particularly huge. Farmers with fat sheep are fortunate in being able to sell at good prices. Mr Sudholz, who is buying for Messrs Cook and Sons, paii up to 18/6 for wethers, 14/6 for ewes and 12/ for lambs. He says he never bandied finer fat lambs. He is goading10 truck loads, and expects; to despatch for the season about 4000 fats* The Fredo Brothers gave ente...

MINIMAY NOTES [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 2 October 1914

1INIMAY NOTES (From Onv Own Correspondent) Daring the last week very severe wind prevailed here, nnd in some parts of the district useful showers of rain foil, although only a few points were registered here, bat at Booroopki 27 points fell. Although in raany caBes crops are holding oat fairly well, it is the general opinion that there will not be much hope for t them if heavy rain is not forthcoming in the next week or so. Grass also is in urgent need of the long expected winter's rain.
