About Sunburn Cures. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 27 November 1914

About Sunburn Cures. It is considered that sunburn 29 nature's method of protecting the tissues from the oJToct of the ultra violet and hot red rays of the mm, and a "Times" writer adds, "face-creams and other translucent preparations are, of course, of little valuo." The "Chemist and Drug gist" objects to the way in which this is put, and assures us that thero is no question of the fact that creams containing a little glycerine and a ftnq powder (such as zinc oxido) are excellent preventives of the sunburn by ultra-violet and red heat rays-in fact, they aro scien tific method of applying face-pow der, which itself is as pood a preventive of sunburn as anything. Face-creams used after exposure to sunlight should, our contemporary considers, be oleraceous, and the smaller the proportion of fat or til in them the better for the skin.

Miss Baden-Powell's Girl Guides. The Scout -'movement has already done much in the way of improv ing the morale of the rising genera tion of boys ; in tho same way it Bhould do much for girls. When, five years ago Miss Agnes Baden Powell started the organisation known as tho "Girl Guides,"' she could hardly havo anticipated that it would have grown to its present proportions in so short a period. .Already there are 12,000 of these handy little people at work and at play in England and Wales alone, while if we include Scotland and the King's Overseas Dominions, we mufft reckon at least 20,000. The one great object of the move ment is to teach girls to depend on themselves, by .teaching them things of practical helpfulness, and to establish their henlth by out door life. All tho worki is dono out of doors, and great attention is given to first-uid teaching. A pa trol consists of eight girls, with a leader and a corporal.

Wounds in War. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 27 November 1914

Wounds in War. A French doctor who went through the rcccnt Balkan War gives the fol lowing interesting account of wounds and how they are got. Dr. Laurent's experience shows that in jnoderrv, warfare, where the soldier fires under cover as much as pos sible, lying prone in a trench, bul lets from the enemy either hit him on the hend or catch his hands. The right hand is protected by the rifle* so that it is the left that gets hurt. Dr. Laurent suggests the use of a metallic shield, sufliciently light, yet resistant, to protect the head, another fixed to the left hand or on the rifle itself, and a third to protect the region of the heart. Many soldiers have had their lives saved by the chance presence of a pocket book filled with papers, or even of « metallic cigarette-case, in the left breast-pocket of their tunic. Super posed sheets of paper have always constituted, even in ancient wars, an excellent shield. Dr. Laurent's statistics show from 82 to 8* per cent, of bullet wounds, fr...

THE PROGRESS OF SCIENCE. Mr. H. G. Wells tells a story of \ a deaf old fisherman, who was out rowing in his' boat one day when a motor-boat near him sprang a leak and almost immediately sank. To the great indignation of the unfortunate occupants of the motor-boat, the old man took not the slightest notice of their plight, but rowed calmly along, puffing serenely at his clay pipe. They shouted, but he was too > deaf to hear. Finally they managed to swim to his boat and scramble on board. He seemed surprised to see them, and was still more taken aback when one of thorn yedled, indignant ly, at him :- * "Confound you ! Why didn't you lend us a hand ? Didn't you. see we were sinking?" " Lcr' bless yor I" he gasped, in reply. "I saw yer right enough. Hut I thought yo'j was one o' them new-fangled submarines I" Mrs. W.

Fortunes in Cocoa-nuts. WONDERS OF TROPICAL FRUITGROWING. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 27 November 1914

Fortunes in Cocoa-nuts. WONDERS OF TROPICAL FRUIT GROWING. I It is claimed . for the fruit-grow ing and agricultural industries of the tropics that they artord a far I better nnd more lucrative field for investment than the majority ° other commercial undertakings, sim ply because there is nn ever-increas ing demand for the products ot the tropics. The development ol the co coa-nut trade of the Wc.it Indies, for instance, has,' during the last ten years, been stupendous, owing to the many new uses to which the oil ol the cocoa-nut is now put. Some time ago chemists discov ered a method of removing the pecu liar flavour of the oil of tlie cocoa nut, which rendered this substance unpalatable to many people, and at the samo time found means of overcoming its liability to become sour and rancid^ when kept for any lengtli of time. And the result of these discoveries has been that it is now possible to use cocoa-nut oil on a colossal scale for the manufacture of nut-butter, margar ine, so...

Saved the Town. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 27 November 1914

Saved the Town. It was in the year 1868, after a battle, and the streets of Madrid were fdlcd with angry, crowds, bent on. destroying everything and every body. Suddenly an unknown man, tall and dark and strong, appeared at- the city hall. "Give mc a band of musicians," he said, "and before nightfall I shall control all Madrid." \ He must have been a man of rare personality to have been able to persuade . the authorities at all in that dark hour to give him any thing of the kind, but he did. Going out with the musicians he wandered through the city. While they played he san?-popular songs or some national air. When these bored the listeners he mounted old boxes and told funny tales, and by and by the people forgot . to be an gry, and followed their new leader wherever he went, laughing over his stories . and songu. By nightfall peace -reigned in the city, and the mob broke up and went homo to bed. The man's name was Felipe Ducazel, and he was only twenty-two years old when he clever...

Wonderful Bowling. » One o( the most oatonishinp bowl ing feats in the annals of crickot was accomplished in the Worces tershire v. Warwickshire cricket match at Dudley. Field, Warwick shire's fast bowler, created a sen Nation by taking six wickets for two runs. Ho took tho wickets of Stevens and Taylor with suc cessive deliveries. This Is tho second beat perform ance given by any bowler in flrst class cricket in . England. The record is held by Pougher, who took .five wickets for no runs against tho Australians at Lord's in 190G. The match in which Field dis tinguished himself was also re markable for the splendid batting of Foster, who compiled 305 runs for Warwickshire in one innings. 1 . It was at a theatre in Manches ter. The king, aged and infirm,' was blessed with two sons. He wore a wearied, troubled look, exclaiming aloud "On which of these my sons shall I bestow my crown?" Immediately came a voice from the gallery "Why not 'arf a crown apiece, guv'nor ?" 1W6.

A BEAR KEEPER'S PERIL. A keeper named James Murray hart a thrilling escapo at the Zoological ! Gardens, Philadelphia, some years ago, while cleaning the case of the polar bear. This cage, which Btands , by itself near the south-east entrance | is built of strong iron bars, and is about 20 feet in diameter, with a stone den at the back and a tank in the centre, large enough for the bear | to roll in. The iron bars slope'in ward at the top, and form a roof eight feet above the floor, with a . circular opening about three feet in diameter over the tank. | As is usual when the cage is to be . cleaned, Murray drove the bear intc. .his den and closed the iron, grating between that and the cage. He then I entered, closed and fastened the door, and teas playing water from a hose into the den, when, with a ferocious growl, the bear threw itself against the grating, which gave way, and : Bruin rushed upon the keeper. !

CHAPTER XXI.

Owen knew he was in for it good and hard when he faced the general after the wreck of the telega. £le had done something few men would have had the hardihood to at tempt, defied the autocrat of the southern border, and almost escaped to mock his pursuit ; indeed, only for this las't miserable chance shot of a badly demoralised guard, ho would have been safe.

To everyone in the "yard," from tho smallest and grimiest rivet lad to the managers and directors, it is a time of considerable intcr . est, hard work, and sometimes worry and anxiety.

PLACES NOT DOWN ON THE MAP [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 27 November 1914

PLACES NOT DOWN ON THE MAP Lovers' Lane. - This place haB one marked peculiarity : although it is the most populous lane in the.world, it never has any more than two peo ple in it at any one time. It is very easily reached, having a wide en trance just of! the main boulevard from Boyville and Girlville ; but one* in it, the way is quite troublesome, owing to the. various paths that lead out of it. You can, if you nre lucky, go straight along over the heights of Matrimony to the end, or you may get lost in Wrangle Town. Sometimes a person doesn't dis cover Lovers* Lane until late in life: but this fact only makes him the more enthusiastic about it. A great many scientists and philo sophers have tried to locato Lovers' Lane without success. Even when they have come upon it by chance, they have not been able to survey it accurately. Indeed, the moment you get into Lovers' Lane you are lost. Thunderstorms happen there quit* often, but wben the sun shines and the birds begin to sing-well...

COD-LIVER OIL DISCOURAGES FLIES. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 27 November 1914

COD-LIVER OIL DISCOURAGES FLIES. I Cod-liver oil is reported by a French veterinary surgeon, M..Lang, to be more effective in fighting flies and mosquitoes than the oils usually employed. Spread over stagnant water, it destroys mosquito larvae \ery rapidly, keeping away many kinds of insects, ond it evaporates very slowly. As it has a caustic effect, the skin of horses may he umeared with it. This repels the in sect tormentors of the animals, and especiully protects wounds and sores from irritation by flies. Ob jectiotiH to the use of tho oil are Its cost and its oftonsive odour. i The total value of the City of London's square mile Is placed at about £250.000,000.

Why You are White. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 27 November 1914

Why You are White. * What you cat determines your colour, according to JJerglield, a German investigator. Not neccs* sarily that you yourself could etfoct any change in colour, but your ancestors for thousands of years have unconsciously been influenced by the food they have eaten and the drinks they have drunk. For instance, the original men were black, says Berglield. Their chief diet was ol vegetables and fruits, ho explains, and these same foods contain manganates that arc unlike iron. Dark browns, and blacks result froin this combination. It is a scientific fact that negroes who drink milk and cat meat are never as dark as those who cat vegetables. He goes on to add that the Indian is red because for hundreds, and perhaps thousands, of years he hns taken into his system the haemoglo bin, or red material in the blood of animals which he has killed for food. Again, Mongols aro yellow be cause they have descended from races that were fruit-eating, and who, making their way into th...
