The First Sewing Machine [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 4 December 1914
The First Sewing Machine A monument was recently erected in Spencer, Mass., lo commemorate Elias Howe, tho inventor of the sewing machine. At the time ho , devised his machine he was only twonty-six years of age, was mar* ried, and had three children, and was practically penniless, being chiefly supported by the labour of his wife with tho needle. It was the distressing picture of his wife, who was rapidly falling a victim to con sumption, stitching awuy day and night, that inspired him to devise a sewing machine. He shut himself up in his little garret, and after four months of application actually succeeded in sewing a scam with his machine, which was capable of running off 150 lock-stitches in half a minute, whilst the average for hand-stitching was only fifteen. The first work Howe did with his machine was to make two suits, one for himself and the other for tho owner of the garret, who pur chased a hnlf interest in the inven tion for £100. A patent was taken out in August, 1846...

The Evolution of the Umbrella. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 4 December 1914
The Evolution of the Umbrella. f The inventor of the folding um brella is unknown. A passage in the * Greek play, "The Knights," written by Aristophanes, in the fifth century, B.C., apparently refers to a folding parasol, and sunshades of this character ure represented on antique Greek vases. The Roman ladies adopted the parasol from the Greeks, as is shown by various passages in the works of Roman writers. The para sol was usually carried by a slave. ! The stick was made of bamboo, and the cover of variegated fabric. The use of the parasol was . not confined to women. The poot | Claudianus complains that the effe minate Roman youth of the period (B.C. 399), instead of carrying oft Sabine virgins, carried sunshades. In tho 'Middle Ages the umbrella was a mark of rank and honour. .After the year 117G a gorgeous um brella. was always carried before the Doge of Venice, whether the sun was shining or not. From the fact that Leonardo da Vinci, in the year 1500, used the word "tent" in de...

This distressed condition of the animal coincidcd with robbories from tho cellar. The most perplex ing feature in tho enso was that the robbor carried nothing away, but drank all on tho spot.

Clergyman Ducked a Pond. FIGHT IN TIFF. WATER. Extraordinary scones wero wit nessed at the garden party where Mr. Lloyd George addressed a largo gathering at Denmark Hill, Lon don, recently, in connection with the women's 'BufTragettc movement from the grounds of Sir William Ves tey's house. Dr. Mncnamara, who presided, had made nn appeal at the close of his opening speech to the audience not to interfere with any possible inter rupters, as stewards had been spe cially appointed to deal with any disturbance. A man who called out "Givo en franchisement to women," immedia tely had a Handkerchief placed over his mouth, and he was promptly re moved from the vicinity of the plat form.

A largo Crowd had gathored near tho barrackB, and numerous soldiers were present. As Dugdalo drew near he discover ed a man mounted on a foam-speck ed horso that had evidently; run alongsido ol Gratschcfl. This personage was a stranger to him, a large, well-made, bearded Russian, with an air of pride and a cold, grey oye. It flashed upon DUgdale in an in stant that' this might be the baron mentioned in connection with the beautiful Isolde, and accordingly the individual bccamo an object o! con siderable interest in his eyes. And . apparently he was also an object of deep solicitude with the lordly stran ger, for those cold eyes flamed dan gerously as the guard brought the prisoner closer. Dugdale saw that every one, even the great General GratschefT, seemed to be very humblo in the presence of this mogul. One alone a...
The Highest Tunnel. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 4 December 1914
The Highest Tunnel. Bwr since iho discovery of South America the groat Andean chain of mountains, which runs from end to end of the continent, has formed a &lt; formidable barrier to intercourse be- &lt; tween the nations inhabiting: it. i Jndeod, it has actually been sim- 1 pier- for people living in the Argen tine to make a long sea voyago in order to reach their neighbours in Chile rather than attempt to cross the natural frontier dividing them. But the proud Andes have now beon subdued by the burrowing through of n t*nnel-the loftiest in the world. This i« to be found on the Transnndino Railway, which runs from Buenos Ayres on the Atlantic to Valparaiso, on the Pacific, a dis tance &lt;V 885 miles. In ascending tho Andes the track follows more 1 or less closely tho old Andrean trail till it reaches the foot of tho Cum bro Pass. Here, at an altitude of in.flOO «feet above sea levol, tho .summit of the mighty rango of moun tains is pierced by a tunnel just ...
CHAPTER XXII. "YOU COWARD." [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 4 December 1914
CHAPTER XXII. "70U COWARD." Tho boron looked at Dugdale, and Dugdalo looked at tho baron. Ona was a prisoner, with the pros pect of a dungeon and prison fare before him; yet ho was smiling as contentedly as might a man well satisfied with what fortune had dealt -that last radiant glance which the bcautj had thrown him was food tor his soul. As for tho nobleman, ho folt moan i er than over before in all his llie, and, of course, ho blamed it all on Dugdale, instead of realising that It I came from his persistent wooing of ; a girl who refnsed to listen to his t suit. | The baron moved closer' and but i veyed him insolently from head to foot, but received just as bold a look in return. "Who are you, fellow ?" he deman ded. ? . Dugdalo laughed.

ALL THE SIGNS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 4 December 1914
ALL THE SIGNS. Mark Twain, at a dinner at the Authors* Club, Raid': "Speaking of fresh eggs, I am reminded of tho town of Squash. In my early lec turing days .1 went to Squash to lecture in tho Temperance Hall, ar riving .in the afternoon. Tho" town seemed -very poorly billed, I thought I'd find out if tho people knew any*: thing at all about w'lmt. was in' store for them. So 1 turned in at the general emporium. " 'Good afternoon, friend,'.] said to the general storekeeper. ' Any entertainment hero to-night to help a 'stranger while away his evening ?'

CHAPTER XXIII FOUND EVERYWHERE. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 4 December 1914
CHAPTER XXIII FOUND EVERYWHERE. For a man who faced unknown dangers, and who had just incurred the maledictions of a powerful Rus sian dignitary, our traveller friend certainly disclosed renSarkably high spirits. I An exaltation seemed to possess him as he walked away, attended by . a grim guard hanging on to each el ! how, while two others formed a bar , rter in front and rear, just as though , he might be an exceedingly import ant personage. It waB done for her, ; and she knew the fact. Would he, could he, ever forget that last look she had bestowed upon him ? Why, for such as that, men in all ages, and under every sun had gone forth to battle, have won imperishable fame, have grappled with the pro blems of life, and solved them, or died in the effort, happj because it was to win a woman's love they placed their all in the balance and counted it well lost; That was one reason why Dugdale was in such fine fettle, even under what appeared to be the most dis tressing conditions.

A Scientific Curiosity. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 4 December 1914
A Scientific Curiosity. 4 A few years ago, while the Jung* Iran Railway was in process of con struction, a violent explosion of dynamite occurred, and * an exami nation of the different places to which the sound penetrated led to a very curious result. It showed that the explosion was heard in two regions widely sepa rated from' each other, one being that part of the Bernese Oberland which adjoined the site of the ex plosion, while the other was the country round the Lake of Con stance. In th« region lying between these two districts the detonation was inaudible. ' Several scientists have studied the causes of this phenomenon, and it has been found that similar ex periences have been noticed during volcanic eruptions in Japan, parti cularly with the eruptions of Asa niayamn. It was found that the di rection in which the sound was audible tallied with the directions of the wind prevailing in the mid dle layers of the 'atmosphere, and it seemed as if the action of the wind could alone...
