SPENCER. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 3 October 1902
SPENOER. Last week, Mr. Herbert Spencer cele brated hie eighsy-firet birthday. It may not be generally known that the philoso pher has hit upon a plan of his own so necessary to his brain, whicb might otherwise be interfered with by the babble of those, around him. When the conversation disturbs or fails to interest him, he takes from his pocket a pair of ! clips which he placeB over his ears, thus I producing artificial deafness — a device which many of us would gladly adopt when the ancient raconteur (a speciee which iB mercifully becoming extinct) glares round a dinner-tablo preparatory to telling a 'good thing' which he heard in the early sixties. A peculiarity of Mr. Herbert Spencer ie that he has p rBiBtently declined all academical distinotionB, and when these have been, so to speak, thrust upon him, te has alwayB ignored them. Mr. Spencer as persistently declines academical discussion. A friend tells me of a con v isation with Mr. Herbert Spencer, which weut pleasantly enong...

Yarieties. THE TEST OF INSANITY. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 3 October 1902
Varieties. THE TEST OF INSANITY. 9XKHE phenomena of insanity are as KJ/jK various aB the different cases and QrL* changing every hour. It is im possible to draw the line between soundness and unsoundness of mind. Eocentrioity so strongly marks the con duct of some individuals that actions natural to them would be marks of in sanity in otherB. The best and easiest teat to deoide the question in any in dividual case is to inquire whether there has beon any strongly marked change of character or departure from the ordinary habits of thinsing, feeling, and acting without any adequate external cause. In short, a man Bhould be compared with himself, and not with others, to decide whether he is insane or not. If there has been no departure from his ordinary con duct and character he may very sately be declared sane ; if there has been a marked ohange in these respects suoh a judgment would hardly be declared safe.

WILD LIFE AND THE SENSES. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 3 October 1902
WILD LIFE AND THE SENSES. Dr. Nausea, in describing his dramatic meeting with Jackson on FraDz-Josef's Land mentions the manner in which his sharpened senses discovered a fragment of the Boap which the civilised European had used in his morning ablutions. ' It is really true,' he says, ' that I could smell that soap as plaiBly sb if it had been a strong perfume. Johansen noted the same thing when he came up. As I ap proached Jackson s hut I thought I could smell everything it contained and give a sort of inventory of its stores without entering. In a day er two this acuteness wore off, and we became quite normal in that as well aa in ether respects. But I wonder if a man were to live wild for a few years if his sense of Bmell would not become qnite as keen as that of an animal P'
