WHY BAD TEMPER MAKES YOU UGLY. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 20 June 1914

WHY BAD TEMPER MAKES YOU UGLY. By a Mcdical Man. It is said by many people that, whilst the art and science of surgery ad vances by leaps and bounds, the sister science of medicine moves onwards very slowly. This shows lack of know ledge. It must be admitted that sur gery has made marvellous progress of lute years. Things thought impos sible a score, even a dozen years ago arc of everyday occurrence now. An incised wound of the heart has been si itched up, a ruptured bladder sutured, a stomach removed, the large intestine excised, a piece of diseased bone sawn off and a piece of sound bone grafted in its place, and all the patients recovered. But the physicians have not been idle. The researches in embryology, tracing the origin of tissues and the gradual building-up of the more complicated organs, have thrown much-needed light on the most vital phenomena of life. Inquiries into the molecular changes of nerve cells, the chemistry of the human body, the activities of certain bacteria...

EDUCATION OF THE YOUNG. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 20 June 1914

EDUCATION OF THE YOUNG. By a Mother. For all purposes of permanent, in fluence, no period is like childhood and youth. And a man's youth, for moral improvement, lasts the whole of his allotted lifetime on earth. Sonic young people grow old too fast for their highest advantage. They think they have finished their education while yet in their teens. And some mothers foolishly grant practical ad mission to the idea. But education is never finished so long as opportunity continues, however early it may com mence. The whole oT this short life may be called the period of youth for purposes of improvement. It is the period that determines the weal or woe that comes after it. And of this brief probation the first half is gen erally decisive of all that follows. The shape of the tree is that which it took when a twig. ' "The child is father to tho man," simply because the man is formed in childhood. Old age is generally the ripe fruit of which childhood and youth are the seed-time and period...

NEW INVENTION MAKES SEA SAFE. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 20 June 1914

NEW INVENTION MAKES SEA SAFE. A remarkable invention pregnant with useful possibilities is the wire less long-distance mirror. Its purpose, in brief, is to convey an image in the same manner that sounds are now communicated. It is a radical improvement on the old-time camera obscura, a structure in which the real image of an object is projected upon a white table or other plane surface. Not only does the new apparatus reflect on a mir ror all objects located and all happen ings occuring within a much greater area than the camera obscura, but it operates at night. Just how the machine works has not yet been revealed, but it is known to consist of a web of wires attached to a tall mast, and it is this web that receives the impressions and projects them on to the mirror located at the base of the mast. The principal value of the new ap paratus will be in its application to ships. It is expected to prevent colli sions with other ships, icebergs, or derelicts by disclosing the where abou...

POLITENESS IN THE HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 20 June 1914

POLITENESS IN THE HOME. II is significant to observe liow some men fail to know how to treat their wives and sisters when they meet them. It seems to them quite unnecessary to lift their hats, or to give heir nearest and dearest the courtesy they would freely render to any woman outside of the domestic circle. This should not be, and the sooner a revolution is accomplished the bet ter. The ablest and most persuasive treatise on the etiquette of the home will not be able by itself to work the change, alhough it would he helpful towards that end. What is needed is the right training of boys and girls. Courteous behavior should be en forced by parents in the same way as other good qualities are taught. One of the most successful instruct ors of the young in our day bears this testimony: "People complain of the way children behave, and lay the blame of their behavior on the day school; but if they would only make the children do at home as they are required to do in school, matters woul...

CHAPTER V. The Barriers Swept. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 20 June 1914

CHAPTER V. The Barriers Swept. Elsie Bisset stood under the bran ches of the trysting tree wringing her hands as if under the influence of great mental emotion. The week that had gone by since she had told Angus of her love had been one of tense agony. The home-coming of Eric had made the ordeal greater than her ten der heart could bear. How fierce had been the conflict of these last days on'o glance into the wan, careworn face, with the large, frightened eyes, sufiiced to show. She had striven with pathetic earn estness to be true to her vow. But, oh! .why had Angus left her to fight alone? Why, amid the pressure of his work had he not found time to steal to her side as others would have done, and help to strengthen her? But, ah, he did not know, she had not told him—she had been too frightened to tell him; and now she shivered, feeling that she was not able to fight alone. And Eric had been so loving, liis devotion had been so unremitting', his tenderness so winning! But hard as t...

DIFFERENCE IN GOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 20 June 1914

DIFFERENCE IN GOLD. Most people suppose (says an as sayer) that all gold is alike when re fined; but this is not the case. An experienced man can tell at a glance from .what part of the world a gold pieces comes, and in some cases from what part of a particular gold district the metal was obtained. The Australian gold, for instance, is dis tinctly redder than the Californian, and this difference in color is always perceptible, even when the gold is 1000 fine. Again, the gold obtained from the placers is yellower than that which is taken directly from quartz. Why this should be the case is one of the mysteries of metallurgy, for the pla cer gold all comes from the veins. The Ural gold is the reddest found any where. Few people km w the real color of gold as it is seldom seen unless heav ily alloyed which renders it redder than when pure. The purest coins over made were the 50 dollar pieces that used to be common in California. Their coinage was abandoned for two reasons first because...

MEISSONIER AND HIS GARDENER [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 20 June 1914

MEISSONIER AND HIS GARDENER Meissonier, like many other celebri ties, had a passion for gardening. His gardener, an accomplished botanist, knew to perfection the seeds of ever}' plant, and Meissonier had often tried in vain to throw him off his guard. "This time I have got him," the ar tist remarked to a party of friends at the dinner-table, anu he showed them a small packet containing the dried roe of a herring. He then sent for the gardener. "Do you know this seed?" Mession ier inquired. The gardener carefully scrutinised the grains. "Why not?" he said, at last; "they are the seeds of the Polpus fluscimus, a very rare tropical plant." "How long will they be in coming up?" Meissonier asked, with a chuckle of suppressed exultation. "About a fortnight, was the reply. Two weeks later the guests were again assembled at Meissonier's table, and after dinner, the gardener was an nounced. "Monsieur Meissonier," the man said, "the seed has just come up." "Ah! you surprise me! the artist exc...

LADIES' COLUMN. THE WOMAN-AT-ARMS. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 20 June 1914

LADIES' COLUMN. THE WOMAN-AT-ARMS. I ride to a tourney with sordid things; They grant no quarter, but what care I? My casque is crested with iron wings, And love, for a sword, at my stirrup swings, And shrill in my ear Truth's trumpet sings: "Though they slay you, you shall not die!" I have bartered and begged, I have cheated and lied; But now, however the battle betide. Uncowed by the clamor, I ride, ride, ride! Who will may splinter the shopmen's panes; Such deeds as these be no deeds of mine. Not by tumult nor wrong do I mea sure my gains, But where gentleness triumphs and violence wanes, With foot in the stirrup and hand on the reins You may see my buckler shine. I have been wanton and queen and bride, I have veiled my soul for my body's pride, Now, mighty in armor, I ride, ride, ride! I ride to the battle with lust and greed. Why marvel ye then at a woman in arms? 1 am sprung from the loins of a mar tial breed— Heir to the lances at Runnymede, Cromwell's courage and Ireton's sp...

RAIHBOW-YAAPEET RAILWAY THE OFFICIAL OPENING A RED-LETTER DAY FARMERS REJOICING [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 27 June 1914

RAIHBOW-YAAPEET RAILWAY THE OFFICIAL OPENING A RED-LETTER DAY FARMERS REJOICING The first section of the Nypo railway line was officially opened yesterday, in the presence of a large and enthusiastic gathering of dis trict residents, and schoolchildren. For some months past the con struction branch of the Railway department has been employed on the extension of the line to Yaapeet, where the ceremony took place. It is not every day that a new railway line is opened—indeed such days are far too rare. For some time past the Albacutya Nypo Railway Committee, under the chairmanship of Mr. E. A. Woods, had been engaged in mak ing preparations for the opening celebrations, and everything passed off without a hitch. In this con nection the residents of Yaapeet, Nypo, Albacutya and Hopevale rendered yoeman service in provid ing an outing for the school children, who were entertained at midday at the terminus, and a large number of visiting children, tea? who travelled by special train augme...

THE BONES OF LIGHT AND HEAVY HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 27 June 1914

THE BONES OF LIGHT AND HEAVY HORSES. Definite information concerning diC- ■ ferences 'between the bones of light and heavy horses has been obtained by B. Hardt, of Jena University, Ger- , many. ' Upon chemical analysis of many specimens of metacarpus or front can non bones, he found that on the whole the bones of draught horses contain more organic matter and less mineral matter than those of light horses. There are also some minor differ ences in composition, but he conclu ded that there are greater differences in form and strength than in the chem ical composition of the bones of the two types. This supports the common state ment. of horsemen that the bones of light horses are generally harder than those of draught horses, for the hard ness of bone and its strength are known to increase with additional per centages of mineral matter.
