CHAPTER XIX. " ... DR. VENNING. .Lance looked up eagerly, and the first scrutinising glimpse of his visi tor -'e him a ? mixed impres did not know whether to teel encouraged or otherwise. The man who had stepped into the room was tall and finely built, and looked well-groomed and gentlemanly. He wore the conventional black frock coat and trousers, and a pair of gold;rimmed eye-glasses dropped over | his shirt-bosom. He was about fifty i years of age, and his features were : close-shaven except for his side-whis | kers, of a glossy raven hue. His eyes i were dark and slightly sinister, and' j the set of his mouth denoted great j strength of character and determina tion. He began the conversation at | onLJe. .

I have a recollection of the river, of the suburbs of London, of the open country. Yes, I must be a prisoner! But where ? Iu whose house ? In what sort of a place ?" He dashed to the window and jerk ed up the blind. He recoiled with horror, with a stifled exclamation, from the* grim thing that stared him in the face-a set of sis massive iron bars.

Trapping Criminals Through their Pores. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 10 October 1914
Trapping Criminals Through their Pores. Medical attention has been recently directed to "poroscopy," a method of criminal and statistical registra tion of mankind which will no doubt at once lie the source of a new crop of detective stories. I>r. Locard, ol' Lyons, France, stands sponsor for the new dispei sation, and his brief is held for the new scheme of measurements because he is personally convinced that it is the equal-and much easier of ap plication-of the finger print method of Karl Pearson and Jl. Bertillon. Dr. James B. Scott describes poroscopy as the science of the study and tabulation of the open ings, orifices, and canals of the sweat ducts of the finger pulp, instead of the lines and ridges in the finger print. Finding a meta phor, he says the holes in trousers cannot altogether be considered without reference to the slender re mains of the cloth, but the sweat openings in the fingers can be re corded with no regard to the finger prints. The sweat pores are caught ...
Why Nervous People are Happiest. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 10 October 1914
Why Nervous People are Happiest. 1 Nervousness is a high tension of the nervous system. . It is rather de sirable than otherwise to be several degrees nervous. Weli controlled nervousness is a sign of good breed ing in human beings just as in .ani mals. . The higher bred the horse the more sensitive and the more . delicately responsive is the animal. - In a crisis the animal has greater fortitude, bearing v pain without flinching. This the self-controlled nervous person also does. Again, if well controlled the nervousness stifnulates to more and better work. Nervousness, if ill controlled or not at all controlled, is, on the contrary, the cause of suffering to' the person, of annoyance to his as sociates, and of inefliciency to both. Uncontrolled nervousness causes Mightiness and irritability". These lower the vitality and impair the functions of the heart and the di g/stive apparatus. Abrupt move ments, shrill voices, hasty speech, and impulsive, uncertain actions are signs of this...
Sunday Evening at Barwon Heads [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 10 October 1914
Sunday Evening at Barwon Heads The clay is done, The hush of evening falls upon the scene The very sea That spiash'd upon the rocks incessantly, The live long day, Has now receded, And with dreary monotone, In lazy fashion laps upon the sand. The mighty rocks, That."rear tluir heads A bulwark gainst tin; encroaching tile, Are hearer now. Hut more forbidding yet Than when about their base The mighty ocean .lash'd. Millenium upon millunium of years These all hut everlasting rocks &lt; At liar won Heads Have stood like sentinels, (Guarding the river * . From the inroad of the over mastering sea Whose mighty and majestic billows tolling on and on, and on, League upon league unchallenged, With glittering power, At length are.hn'rled And swirl'd in feathery foam Around thy feet. Thus are o:ir lives l>y angels j "Watched and guarded, Else would the giant powers of evil,' ' That at times . With mastering force, Strive,to o'erwhelm us ; Have fuller dominance.

Lures Mosquitoes to their Death. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 10 October 1914
Lures Mosquitoes to their Death. Mosquitoes in Epping Street have become such a pest that fears of malarial fever inspired the T>is trict Councils to call a conference to decide upon the best method of stamping out the danger. Epidem ics of disease are anticipated if such an active fever-breeding agent ' as the mosquito is left to multi ply unchecked. At Walton-on-tlie-Naze two or three years back swarms of mosqui toes annoyed visitors so much that the season was quite spoilt. The action of the local authorities in spraying all ponds and -marshy places with paraffin, however, clear ed the district of the insects. Just at this moment an electrical engineer points out another method of exterminating the pests, I he idea originated in experiments in harmonic telegraphy, in which a musical note of a certain pitch was produced by electricity. The opera tor was amazed to find that when the note was raised to a certain number of vibrations per second mosquitoes would congregate near the...
Germ of Whooping Cough. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 10 October 1914
Germ of Whooping Cough. T That whooping cough is caused by the bacillus pertussis, discovered by I)rs. Iiordct and Oengou, has now at last been proved beyond a doubt. "Masses of minute bacil li infest the edithelial cells lining the windpipe, and tubes that lead to the lungs. Their action is chiefly mechanical; they interfere' with the normal movements of the cilia by sticking them together ; in this way the germs furnish a continual irri tation, which results in the symp toms peculiar to the disease." Drs. Mallory and Horner now announce the results of experiments upon pup pies. They infected these animals by injecting the sputum of whoop ing cough patients into their noses and throats. Six weeks later the lesion characteristic of the disease was found in their windpipes. Nor mal puppies that associated with them caught the disease. The ex perimenters were able to find the bacilli clogging the cilia of the cells of the mucous membrane of the puppies' throats. Teacher (instructing c...
Living for Over 300 Years. RECORD LONGEVITY AND LAZINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 10 October 1914
Living for Over 300 Years. I 4 RECORD LONGEVITY AND LAZINESS. Quite erroneous is the popular I belief that a toad can live for hun | dreds of years, even when buried I in rock or earth. At the same , time it can survive for a long time m very disadvantageous circumstan ces. Upon Easton Heath, for in stance, part of the Marquess of Exeter's estate, near Stamford", a living full-grown toad has just been ; found in a cavity in the solid lime , stone rock eight and a half feet | from the surface. After a few days exposure to air and light, 'and with access to water, the creature assumed normal colourings and markings, though it ultimately died from a wound received during blasting operations. How long the toad had been in captivity is not known, but according to scientists the toad cannot live without food and air for more than two years, ' its span of life being usually limit- I ed to about forty years. The average person is apt to con fuse the toad with tortoises and turtles, which li...
