Household Hints. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
Household Hints. ? : — * ? | Rice has a finer flavour if washed in hot water instead of cold before cooking. ' Tinned and bottled fruit should be kept in the dark. A dry cupboard is the best place for it. Pieces of linen Saturated with pure rectified spirit placed upon the temp les of a sleepless patient will often bring relief. v ????.- Always remove the cake of fat that settles on the top of cold soup; if allowed to remain, the soup will turn sour more quickly than it other wise would; 1 If- when reading or sewing by lamp-light, a sheet of white paper is placed under the lamp, it will be found that a far stronger light is shed all over the room. To remove stains from . white handles, mix a little powdered pum ice-stone and whiting together, dip a damp cloth- in; thisJr and rub the. marks before .washing. * A small , pinch of carbonate of soda in the water in which cabbages are boiled, preserv.es the colour of the vegetables and lessens the un pleasant odour whilst cooking.

Random Readings. THE MAKING OF A HOSTESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
Random Readings. . w THE MAKING OF A HOSTESS. I Home life in France is far more an institution, and -the 'cercle de famille' far more important, than in English homes, but it is so seldom opened to strangers that that is the reason why so few English people have been able to study the French, woman's life in her own home and her mode of living, says Mrs. Hamer Jackson in the 'Women's Encyclo paedia.' To understand a French woman it is necessary to learn how she has been brought'up. Nurseries in France are practically unheard of. The little child while very young sits at its parents' table and lives in constant companionship with its mother and father, acquiring at an early age ease of manners and self confidence. It is often indulged, and seldom spoilt by contradiction. 'French amiability is indeed trace able to this early indulgence, soci ableness, and early training in good manners. The little French girl is the centre of family cares and calculation. From the moment of her birth ...

HOW TRIAL BY JURY ORIGINATED. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
HOW TRIAL BY JURY ORIGINATED. Whence comes the system of trial by jury? In the opinion of Bour guignon, a French jurist, 'its origin loses itself in the night of time.' Blackstorie .speaks of it as 'a trial that hath been used; time out of mind.' Reeves thinks it was in troduced into England by the Normans;, who themselves ob tained it from Northern Europe. It is certain that the Scan dinavians had an established jury system more than 1000 years! ago. The Normans on their arrival in England found prevailing there the ordeal of hot irons, which en forced the carrying of a pound of j heated metal by the accused for a given distance, and the ordeal of hot water, in which by way of varia tion a stone had to be withdrawn from a pitcher of boiling water. No attempt at reform in this direc tion was made by William the Con queror. A noted case tried in the reign of the Conqueror, with Otho, Bishop of Bayeaux, presiding as judge, has been erroneously supposed to be the first jury case on rec...
SHARK AND OCTOPUS AS DELICACIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
SHARK AND OCTOPUS AS DELICACIES. Japan is to-day the leading fishing ! nation. Not, it is true, in the actual value of its fish products, for in that two or three other nations excel it; but in the number of persons who make their living by fishing, in the proportion of fishers to the rest of the people, in the relative impor tance of fisheries in the domestic economy, in the ingenuity and skill of the people in devising fishings ag^ promotiug' the interests of the fish ing population, Japan is preemi nent. The Island Empire, as the Nev/ York 'Tribune' points outstretches diagonally from north-east to south west between two and three thou sand miles, giving a great range of climate, and consequently of waters, from almost tropical to almost arctic. The islands are for the most part long and narrow, and at no part is the interior too far from the sea to allow of the easy transportation of fresh fish. ~ Within a few miles qf the coast in many places are tremendously deep parts of the ...
CATCHING THIEVES BY MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
CATCHING THIEVES BY MACHINE. ? ? The cleptograph, as may be in ferred from its name, is an appara tus for the recording of theft, which automatically photographs those who break into office or house, and accu rately registers the- hour of their visit. / The room to be protected by the cleptograph contains a system of wires and contacts that are proper ly distributed over the windows, doors, safes, etc., being connected As soon as a stranger penetrates the room, a photographic camera, under the action of some contact, involuntarily and unconsciously touched by the person, will direct it self automatically towards the con tact, that is towards the thief, and after having opened the objective shutter, will ignite the magnesium powder intended to supply the flash light, and again close the objective after the view has been taken, then exchange the film, get a new portion of powder ready, and register the exact hour. The whole of these divers opera tions is completed in less time than is...

A JAPANESE REFORM. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
A JAPANESE REFORM. Among other problems confront ing Japan is the proposed reform of the printed characters of her lan guage. So far the empire has got along in all the changes which have come to her, social, political, and industrial, with the old ideographic system of writing ; but so many new words, phrases, and ideas of for eign origin and nature have arisen and compelled their use that the cumbersome ancient characters of Chinese or native source have for many purposes become useless. A plan proposed in 1 okyo is to adopt English in addition to the langu age as used at present. Volapuk and Esperanto have been consider ed, but the scholars reject them.
THE ANDES TUNNEL. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
THE ANDES TUNNEL. One of the greatest triumphs in the hisfory of engineering i3 the comple tion of the tunnel, or series of tuu neis, through the Andes, which al lows direct railway travel across South America from Buenos Ayres to Valparaiso. Hitherto winter travellers went by way of the Strait of Magellan, a rough sea voyage. The tunnel has been in process of construction for many years, and twice the work has been abandoned in despair. There are three tunnels, with an aggregate length of eleven miles. The highest station on the line is about ten thousand five hun dred feefc above sea-level. The third of the tunnels is described as screw shaped, and drops twenty-seven hundred feet in a distance of twenty seven thousand feet. The total cost of the work is about two and a half million pounds. Guard within yourself that treas ure — kindness. Know how to give without hesitation ; how to lose with out regret; how to acquire in your heart, by the happiness of those you love, the happines...
HOTEL INVENTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
HOTEL INVENTION. A new bag exchange system for railway introduced in Chicago. In stead of having a boy to go through the hotel calling the name of the one wanted, automatic enunciators are provided in various parts of the building, which consist of loud speaking receivers capable of being operated from a central station in the hoteTT Forty receivers may be operated by a single transmitter, and the number may be increased by the use of repeaters. The ap paratus was tested in a hall contain ing seven thousand people, and could be heard perfectly clear
STARLIGHT IS EARTHLIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
STARLIGHT IS EARTHI.IGHT. Starlight does not fully account for the brightness of the moonless night sky, and a German astrono mer concludes that it may be partly due to 'earthlight'— perhaps to a permanent aurora attending the earth. The light varies on different nights and at different hours of the same night. In Germany it seems to be from seven to fifteen times the amount of mean starlight, but is believed to be not so great every where.
WIRELESS FOR FISHING BOATS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
WIRELESS FOR FISHING BOATS. Wireless telegraphy is being in troduced among German fishing ves sels. The advantage of this sys tem of communication i^ that it permits one vessel that is making a good catch to report the matter to another vessel of the same com pany, so that the entire fleet may return with the largest possible quantities of fish. Furthermore, tlicy can inform the managers of the public markets respecting the quantities of fish they have for sale, so that in case of an unusual catch arrangements may be made for dis tributing the fish in the least pos sible time.

THE LARGEST FLOATING DOCK. There has recently been complet ed by Messrs. Vickers Sons and Maxim a 22,ooo-ton floating dock for the use of the Brazilian Gov ernment, and more particularly for the accommodation of the three Brazilian Dreadnoughts.

AMERICAN TITLES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
AMERICAN TITLES. William Jonnings Bryan once joked about the American fondness for titles. 'You all know of the Colonel,' he said, 'who got his title by inheritance, having married Colonel Brown's wid ow ? But I once met a General who got his title neither by inheritance nor by service, nor by anything you could mention. ?' 'General,' I said to him, 'how do you come by this title of yours, any way ?' ' 'Why, sir,' said ho, 'I passed my youth in tho flour trade, and for twenty-seven years wa3 a general mil ler.' 'I know another titled man, Judge Green. ' 'Are you, sir,' I oncc asked him, 'a United States Judge or a circuit court Judge?' ' 'I ain't neither,' he replied. 'I'm a judge of hoss-racin'.' '' — 'St. Louis Globe Democrat.'
Words of Wisdom. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
lords of Wisdom. Every why hath a wherefore. Who is a useless man? He who can neither command nor obey. Idleness travels leisurely, and poverty soon overtakes Her. Every man has within himself something he holds sacred and div ine. If we are commonplace and indif ferent, we will find other people so. Mind finds its level, just as water does. A really original and sympa thetic person wHl find others inter esting: and agreeable. To complain of those we meet is really to pro claim ourselves dull. There is only one way of doing right, just as there is only one pos sible straight line between two giv en points. A man needs to educate his conscience in spiritual geome tery, so as to know the straight line from the crooked ; and then he needs to educate his will to take that line promptly. How idiotic would a sailor be to day who turned wilfully away from all the maps and charts and sound ings which experienced predecessors have provided for him! Is the young man or woman much better who t...
SUNFLOWER PHILOSOPHY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
SUNFLOWER PHILOSOPHY. You don't give your conscience en ough credit. When you say a man refuses to lis ten to reason, it means that he fails to agree with you. If you arc contented you are pretty well otf without an auto ami a man sion. . It has been our experience that when the weather is pleasant, and fishing agreeable, fish won't bite. Our idea of an unusual man is one who doesn't have a lot of worthless junk he considers valuable. If a woman has proper pride she will never forget her dignity, not even when running to a fire. It usually takes a stron-y?r h^iit tc induce a visitor to go than was re quired to get him to come. Thero may not be much money in raising chickens, but as an average proposition, it pays better than rais ing dogs. — 'Atchison Globe.' ? ? ?
Science Notes & News. SAFETY IN THE PLAYHOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
[ Science Notes & News. . 9 SAFETY IN THE PLAYHOUSE. The most interesting of many re cent inventions for enabling people to escape from theatres in case of tire is a mechanical contrivance by which the entire playhouse may be literally turned inside out at a mo ment's notice. No sooner is there an alarm than the whole parquet, or 'pit,' which is on rails, is run out into the street, and the part of the audience occupying this portion of the building finds itself in the open air, dispersing at leisure. Meanwhile the occupants of the galleries are by no means abandon ed to. their fate. Each of the bal conies is suspended in such a way that, together with the people it contains, it may, by the operation of a very slight mechanism, be swung outward and lowered gently to the ground. Of course, such an arrangement is practicable only when the playhouse has plenty of space around it. But this essential being provided, every floor becomcs a ground floor, the interior of the theatre ...
"GATLING GUN" FOR POCKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
'GATLING GUN' FOR POC KET. A powerful new automatic gun, whose projectiles, it is said, will pierce half-inch Bessemer steel at 1,000 yards, has been invented by an American. The gun carries a 9 millimetre cartridge, taking five of these, which, the inventor says, can be fixed in three seconds by the re coil shoulder action. The receiver is five inches long, much smaller than any other automatic gun. It is really a 'Gatling gun' for the poc ket.
