No Title [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 13 February 1915
IT is gratifying to find that al though there are fewer visitors this season than usual in Queenscliff, other seaside resorts have had an increase in attendance. Sorrento, Mornington, Torquay and Barwon Heads have been well patronised. Whilst we naturally deplore the loss, others pave been gainers. Point L6nsdale, however, has not been behindhand, which partly helps to make up our deficiency. Queenscliff has not lost its popula Ity. There should be Po thought of that. The reduced number of visitors is but temporary. Next season, when in the ordinary course of events it may be expected the necessity of war preparations winl have come to an etid, there will probably be the largest number of visitors in Queenscliff than for years'. To speak in this way may appear premature, but it is just as well we should view things in this light, as some are despondent of the present. Many who have spent their holidays iii pother parts, have expressed themselves. desirous. of. renewing . their - vis...

ROUND AND ROUND. It seemed a very difficult thing to make little Bessie understand that the earth revolved round and round. One day she came in from playing and said: Mother, I believe the earth does turn round.' 'What is it that has convinced you, dear ?' asked the mother. 'I can see it whirlf,' said Bessie, 'when I twist. up my swing and then untwist it.' 'Isn't it you that whirls,' asked the mother, 'instead of the earth ?' 'But,' explained Bessie, 'it goes after I stop, .

SUITS OF STONE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 13 February 1915
SUITS OF STONE. In Russia entire suits are made from a fibre of a filamentous stone that is, a stone that can be stripped into a floss-like substance, like asbes tos. The cloth is woven from these shredded filaments of stone and dyed various colours. It wears like iron, and when it is dirty the suit is toss ed into the fire, not to be destroyed, but to be cleaned. An Austrian has succeeded in mak ing cloth of spun glass that has the sheen and pliability of silk. A great deal has been written about the lost art of making glass pliable. This in ventor claims to have done this, and a member of royalty in Austria has worn a purple dress made entirely of spun g~ass. Paper "cloth" is not new. We have long worn paper vests and such gar ments, and during the Russo-Japan ese War the Jap soldiers wore paper clothing. An English manufacturer has taken old 'ropes and cordage and by a secret method woven it into a most dur able and not unattractive cloth or fabric. A large trade for this so-call...

(ALL RIGHTS REBERVED.) UNDER THE BAN S.OF THE CZAR, 0---- OR, ------ THE WINNING OF ISOLDE. U÷ By St.7George Rathborne, Author of "'Omar Kassam," etc. PART 11. CHAPTER XXXII. ITHE SLEEPER AWAKES. Vladimir was a man of action. He usually left to some one else the task of doing the thinking, while he moved in the matter; and yet his actions were inspired, and not the re sult of mere guesswork. In his mind one thing necessitated another, and in case of disaster a way of escape• would present itself most naturally, as though part of the programme. Dugdale counted the windows of the Ssecond floor. "The tenth; let me see-she said tenth, I'm sure," he whispered. "From which end ?" asked the Cos sack, .eagerly. "Bless my. soul, I never thought there was more than one end," mut tered the traveller. "It would make a difference, little master." "Of course it would. I'm a fool, Vladimir. How could I have neglect _ ed such a point ! Which end ?" "Count the windows. Perhaps that may help us." Dug...

SOME HEALTH PROVERBS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 20 February 1915
SOME HEALTH PROVERBS. '"An open window is better than an open grave." "Warm rooms have, killed more peo ple than ever froze to death." "Wire screens in the windows may. keep crape from the door." "A fly in the milk often means a member of the family in the grave." "If some people were as much afraid of flies as they are of bad water,, there would be less typhoid." "When you see a child looking like an angel, do not kiss it; you might make a real angel out of it." It is possible to go wrong in many ways; but we can go right in one way only.-Aristotle. To suffer and be strong is not easy, but courage grows with use. To sit on a sweetheart's knee is a practice sanctioned by law, ancient tradition, and modern ueae.--Judge Adams.
THE PASSING OF EMPIRES. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 20 February 1915
THE PASSING OF EMPIRES. (By a Banker.) From time to time, in the -long and varied history of the world, epochs have come and gone when for a period,more or less prolonged, certain races of mankind have at tained to a high state of civilization, and gifted, talented ability, after wards relapsing into a state of comparative barbarism. Look ing back down the long, dim vista of time, we find first in order the Egyptians, apparently the pioneers of civilization, who excelled all other races down even to the pre sent day, in the massive grandeur of their buildings, temples, and palatial tombs. Then the Jews, who produced the most magnificent and costly structure ever erected on this earth. Greece, whose statuary by far excelled that of any, other nation before or since, down, even to our own times, the fabricator tdo of the most perfect architecture the world has ever seen, and the cradle of poetry, of refined oratory, and of the higher drama; and Rome, mistress for a time of the world, ...

On I entering one of the houses he saw, to his great surprise a number of men Iseated in a circle on the floor, in the nmiddle of which was .a bright copper ckettle. Being much interested in workmen .and their ways, he inquired of one of t: ihe men what was. going on. "We're trying,'" said the miner, "to bee who can tell, the biggest lie, and the kettle will be presented to the mnan who tells it." The bishop, greatly shocked, ex tlalmed, "Why, my good man, I pever told a lie in my life." The minrs, thinking that his lord Mhip was competing for the prize, ously cried, 'Give ' L' hot. It , ¶

SOME PLEASANT TATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 20 February 1915
SO? PLEASART TATTLE. "Some men," says a writer in- a himn jotrnal, in disclosing 'tricks' of the! fumnishing trade; 'can take new lamiture and make it look as if it was made a century ago.' But there is nothing remarkable in this. An ntel'tge cachad.n do the same. "I behave," sas Mr. William Poel, "-Lat in 360 years Mr. Bernard Shew's .wriings will still interest people." Mr. Shaw mse?f, however remsnb Mr. Poel's estimate as an. absurdly moderate one. "All a woman asks is to be loved," says a poet. Then all those tales about her wanting new frocks, motor? e'e, and unlimited jewellere \are a vile adader. "Take away woman," says an ar dent "votes-for-women" supporter in am of the dailies, "and what would foBw ?'" Why, man, of course. Aa Irish M.P. is well remembered for his fiat and only oratorical ef fort Ia the House. On rising, he de elaiae with due solemnity.

THE EAR THE SEAT OF SEA SICKNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 20 February 1915
THE EAR THE SEAT OR SEA -SICKNESS. Ifr. Julius Auerbach, who has spent nine months at the University of Vi enna, has repeated his belief that sea - sickness is not due to the stomach, but to the irritation of the semicircular canal of the inner ear. This is the theory that has been known for some time tot spedialists, and Dr. Auerbach believesi that Prc? Dalikinik, of the University of" Vi enna, has proved it. The doctor says that the function, of the anni circular canals is to ;maintain. the equilibrium. When they are irritated their owners have all the symptoms of sea sickness. The doctors of Vi enna found by experimenting that a childi~ a whose ears the canals had been' destroyed could not be made seasick, and that animals without the ear canals were unaffected by sea. sickness. Dieting before a voyage would not prevent sea sickness, there fore. The doctor said no remedy.had been found.

If our lives are true and good, this in fluence is a blessing to other lives. Let us never set agoing any in fluence which we shall ever want to have gathered up and have buried with us. When we think of our personal influence, unconscious, perpetual, pervading, and im mortal, can we but cry out;, Who is sufficient for these things!' How can we command this outflow from our lives that it shall always be blessed! Let us be faithful in all duties, in all obligations and re sponsibilities, in all obediences, in act, word, and disposition, all the days, in whatever makes influence. In no other way can we meet the responsibility of living. t
SCIENCE NOTES. Developments in Electrical Research. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 20 February 1915
SCIENCE NOTES. Developments in ElectriCa, Research: It hat long been conceded that eleo tricity offers a wider field for the ambi= tions student than any other, but even the wildest flights of fancy never reached" to such heights as reality shows us in some of the latest discoveries. It is said that we are to- have electria: power without circuits, and that storage batteries, trolleys and all of the most ap. proved appliances will be reconstructed' out of existence. Under the new condiV tions a couple of thousand volts passed though the human frame will be esteemed, a pleasant sensation; whereas, at pre' sent, two thousand will kill at a flash. ' The wildest dreams of the extremist alchemist fade into insignificance by the side of the possibilities that now now, loom up: ahead of us. We are to put our heads in, contact with certain appliances and-presto! our thoughts are recorded upon paper or -transmitted to' ; friends.
