ANTICS PLAYED BY LIGHTNING. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 4 July 1914
ANTICS PLA'YED BY LIGHTNING. . T" o antics played by lightning arc sometimes almost beyond belief. A common trick is thnt of undressing its victims. In 1898 two girls and an elderly woman were standing by a reaping machine during a storm. A lightning Hash struck the woman and killed lier on the spot, while the two girls were stripped to the skin, oven their boots being torn from their feet. Otherwise they were safe and sound —and astonished. Ill 1855 a man was struck by liir" ning near Vallerois, in France, and stripped naked. All that could be found afterwards of his clothes was a shirt-sleeve,^ a few other sliredB, and some pieces of his hob-nailed boots. Ten minutes after ho was struck he regained consciousness, opened his eyes, complained of the cold, and inquired how lie happened to be naked. Such instances have 'been recorded again and again. In one case a man and two oxen were struck simultan eously, and all three killed. The man was found stripped to the skin, and his boots ...
AN M.P.'s ANECDOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 4 July 1914
AN M.P.'s ANECDOTES. Many good stories wero told by !)■ Mncnnmara, M.P., recently, when he gave some of his "Reminiscences and Iteflectlona" ut the Heme Hill Congre gational Church, with Sir Albert Spi cer In the chair. Beginning with the barrack-room at Montreal, lie was alternately serious and humorous. On the one and only day he played truant at Pembroke Dock his mother went to ask the schoolmaster It he could leave early to go out to tea. "And this," he re marked sorrowfully, "I have always regarded as hard lines." Half the failures in life, he said, are those of people who .thought they could do something else better. Thlt was his first reflection. And so, al though he wished to 'be a soldier, lie did his best as a pupil teacher. At Exeter he was taught singing by- a lame man who waved Ills stick threat eningly when lils pupils did not grasp a melody quickly. This lent Itself to Dr. Macnainara's first witticism, for this, he thought, niUBt be the meaning of the "staff notation....

Colonel "Buffalo" Jones, the fam ous American huntsman who in his time hiis captured lions, rhinoceroses, hippopotami, nnd panthers alive and unhurt with a lasso, has gone at the head of an expedition to the French Congo to attempt to living home to Europe, for the first time, a full-sized gorilla, W. Beach Thomas In Lon don "Daily Mall" writes as' follows about this remarkable man: Buffalo Jones is certainly tlio most astonishing conqueror of animals Hint has ever lived.

BRAINS IN THE FEET. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 4 July 1914
BRAINS IN THE FEET. The necessity for combining Intelli gence with muscles and nerves In athletics is emphasised by Mr. E. W. lljertberg, conch ot the Swedish" Olym pic team, In "Athletics in Theory and Practice." All those who train -wlf.il ■ the idea of winning prizes on the ath letic. track, he! says, "should always remember that the brain plays an Im portant part in training as well as !n contests. He points out that in the old days it was usually held to be enough, to train the body, and the more drastic the training the more likely success wns thought to be. Nowadays it it necessary, if a man has to win success on the track, that he should have "brains In his feet," as the saying goes. Mr. lljertberg points out that many contests have been lost by good nthletes just be cause they did not think quickly or accurately enough. To-day, In training, brain and nerves are given even moro attention than the body. Furthermore, un athlete Is • allowed to think for himself and is al lowed...

HOW THE ANT SALUTES. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 4 July 1914
HOW THE ANT SALUTES. Ants have Ions been &lt;kufown for their excessive Industry, but from a curious communication which has just appeared tlioy seem to have surpass ed all oilier insects by organising an elaborate system of signalling. Professor Bugnlou, who has recent ly investigated the habits or the white ant, reports that the "soldiers" of that species glvo warnings or encourag ing signals by knocking with tlioir jaws upon dry leaves, thereby emit ting a crackling sound. Placing somo of those ants on a big plate and cov ering it with paper, lie found that the "soldiers" among the ants responded to Ills taps with a ruBtllng, crackling sound. Moreover, apart from UiIb audible signalling, there appears to 'be somo inaudible form of signal, for the pro fessor assorts that the "soldier" ants salute tliu. worker ants. To "do this, "the Insect stands firm ly ou its logs witli tlie lioad raised and the body slightly oblique, and shakos Itself for an Instant with a convulsivo sh...
VERY TOUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 4 July 1914
VERY TOUGH. Mere is a story from "Law ami Laughter." Lord Mansfield was try ing a case in which an old man named Elm, who was upwards rof eighty, gave his evidence with remarkable clearness. It turned out that he had been through life an early riser, and had led a singularly temperate life. The Chief Justice, ill a tone of ap proval, congratulated him, and made the remark that without such habits longevity was never attained. The next witness proved to be this old man's brother, who was-more ancient than himself. He also 'bore himself well in the witness-box,'"and tlio Chief Justice rushed to the conclusion that he was equally exemplary in his hab its. But the old man declined the compliment. He said he liked to lie in bed late ,and clinched the matter by adding that he could not remem ber a night when he had not gone to bed without being more or less drunk. The barrister, who was oil Ills feet, caught at this admission, and ex claimed: "Ah, my lord, this old man's case supports the...

BEAUTIFICATION OF MERRI CREEK. A PLAN OF OPERATIONS. Mr. J. Johnstone, Conservator of Forests, has supplied the following spe cial report to the Norihcote City Coun cil for tho improvement of Morri Crook:— This winding gulch is at present any thing but pleasant to tho eye. hut could bo made beautiful if properly planted with trees and shruba. Tho creek might well be called an ideal spot for landscapo gardening. When setting out the plants, line planting should bo Avoided. In plant ing a creek of this kind charming ef fects can bo produced by introducing trees with pendulous branches, and leaving spaco to develop thorn. By so doing, a delightful shade can bo created on tho lower sloper of tho lofty banks. Evergreen trees and tree-like shrubs should bo judiciously arranged for effect. There are many ugly spots that can bo made attractive by plant ing on thorn, to grow over them, climbing and trailing shrubs and shrub like plants.

SUBMARINE PARIS. LANDMARKS UNDER WATER. DANGER ON THE "JOIE DE VIVRE." The deluge lias been n trifle Into, but It has como after Louis all the same. It has blotted out the PIncc do la Concorde, wherein several of the aforesaid Louis's Illustrious relatives lost hoir heads; It has threatened to swamp the tomb of Napoleon at the Invalides and the Venus of Milo on. the ground floor of the,Louvre; it has imparted a Venetian aspect to Notre Dame, the Morgue, and other build ings that the world knows less about on the lie do Cite and the lie St. Louis. I'aris Is a flat city; the shelv ing from the river is so gradual as to be imperceptible lor the first mile or two. And it is around the river .on both sides that the important Paris has grown.

TO HIDE BALDNESS. HAIRS SEWN IN HUMAN SCALP. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 4 July 1914
TO HIDE BALDNESS. HAIRS SEWN IN HUMAN SCALP. A method of sewing hairs in the ; humau scalp in cases of partial or total baldness has been successfully used in several instances by Dr. Szekely at the hospital of Saint Ste phane at Budapest. The number of hairs "planted" in the head of a patient, says "The Times," has been as many as 50,000. One hundred hairs are drawn through punctures in the scalp to every square centimetre, ami as both ends are left free, the number is thus 200, or over 1000 to each square inch. Very line gold wires are used, one five-hundredth of an inch in diameter, and fine, long hairs from a woman's head are at tached at the middle to these. The gold loop or knot acts as an "an chor," and after sterilisation is intro duced into the subcutaneous tissue, where it is slightly twisted, and holds the hair permanently in position. It is stated that 500 hairs can thus be introduced into the scalp within three quarters of an hour. Dr. Szekely lias designed a special in...
