THE AERIAL GULF STREAM. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 17 April 1914
THE AERIAL GULF STREAM. The Gulf Stream, when it leaves the Gulf of Mexico. enters the Atlantic with a speed of S kilometres an hour. It is 60 kilometres wide and 400 metres deep, and daily transports about 40 millions of milliards of ca lories. This enormous quantity of heat, of which it is almost impossible to obtain an exact idea, plays a funda mental role in the general climatology of the earth. Strangely enough, it is this stream of hot water, exercising its temperature action on the coasts it waters. which is the direct cause of the existence of deserts. And this is how. Water is one of the bodies in which heat is the most easily pre served, and consequently the Gulf Stream, even in high latitudes, still keeps an enormous quantity of heat. The masses of air that rest on these hot waters are kept at a temperature higher than the surrounding tempera ture. and form a veritable aerial gulf stream superposed over the marine current. But the aerial current is not like the marine one...

FEMININE TRAITS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 17 April 1914
FEMININE TRAITS. A woman walking on a city foot way will generally choose the inside. She does so partly in order to look at the shop windows, but chiefly on ac count of the slope of the pavement, which is less on the inside. In tr'as and omnibuses women mosti sit near the door. At the far end you will, as a rule, see a majority of men. When men read while travellinc the nearly always read newspapers, but in the hands of the reading girl. you will, with rare exceptions. see a book. When a woman is crossing a street with--much traffic. she runs, in nie cases out of ten, and the older she is, the more inclined she is to run. But the man walks very deiiberately. A woman holds a closed umbrella by the middle, and usually clasps it to her body. No one ever saw a man carry it in this way. A woman usuallyr raises a cup or a glass or a fork to her lips correctly-that is with her el bows close to her body. Most men stick their elbows out, against all rules of etiquette. In lighting a match a...

Already Equipped. "Don't know whether it's new or not. I heard it at G-." said the man who had recently returned from that town. "There's a rich widow iiving just outside the place," he continued, "and after several elderly gentlemen had vainly endeavored to lure her into matrimony, a report gained circula tion that she was a regular man-hater. Finally a wealthy widower, carrying with him the evidence of good living and the heartiness that seeks con genial companship, visited the town, and was soon a caller upon the in tractablc widow. "After he thought sufficient ad vancement had been made to justify a proposal he proceeded to feel his way. "'Beautiful home you have here.' '"Yes, I enjoy it.' "'Fine outlook, fine trees. very fine all round. But there is one thing lacking.' " 'Yes.' " 'It is an Adamless Eden, dont you know. You are so good in everything else that I should think you would be glad to share these blessings with a husband.' "'Are you proposing. sir?' "'In a tentative wa...

The Limit. Mary Jane's master is a slig:tip e;" centric bachelor. He has one i n : irritating habit. Instead of eingher what he wants done by wOrdi e: mouth he leaves on his desk. or - the kitchen table, or anyhere -' y where she is likely to see it, a e ot curtly directing her to "Dust the cd. ing-room," or "Turn out my cup board," and so on.

ECZEMLA CURED. SRexona Ointment removed a patcn of eczema from my face in less than a week in a manner that was positively startling.7 writes _Mrs. Jane Royinson, of 3 Commodore-street. No rtown, Sydney, New South Wales. "This patch of eczema was very unsightly, and really I was ashamed to go out of the house. It was located on onet side of imy- nose and all round my mouth. The pain and irritation from which I suffered were intense. This eczema had been on my face for about four years when I started to use Rex ona. I had tried all sorts of oint ments and other remedies, but all without any effect at all. After a few aplplications of Rexona, however. the irritation was imuch decreased, and the eczema seabs began to colle off, leaving net: skis uniderneath. The iniprovemtent kept up day by day till all the scabs were gone, and a per feet new sk:i appeared where the dis tigurltig eczema formerly was. There is soniiethiing in that I:exona OintmIent that acts like the toucih uf a Imiagic...
GOVERNMENT RED TAPE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 17 April 1914
GOVERNMENT RED TAPE. One of the Melbourne dailies has just woke to the fact that Australia is governed not so much by Acts of Parliament, but by regulations fram ed by unknown and irresponsible Government servants, writes our 31el bourne correspondent. To many of us this has been a matter ar daily re gret for many years. ThIe article in queistion instances the Post and Tele graph Act, whose 1R? clauses are ii numinated. or, rather, extinguished, by 4f' regulations. As the Act in ques tion is one with which life mnakes me most familiar, I may be excused for saying a word or two :n solemn con decniation, or commination, of the re gulations the department have framed. When the bill was going through Par liament Messrs. Cook, Mahon, Glynn, Quick, and other muneibers. bestowed a great deal of care on the clauses deal ing with Press telegramnls and news papers generally for the simtple reasonr that they had inside knowledcge of newspaper w-tovk. What tiheY did in this respect was well don...
