THE FOE OF GERMS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 7 August 1914
THE FOE OF GERMS. While it has long been, known that tobacco smoke Jb a valuable preventive against infection during the epidemic of a contagious disease, it is only re cently that an analysis of smoke-laden air in an East-end district has been contrasted with equally dense air In which tobacco fumes were lacking. These analyses.have shown that more than one half of the''harmful germs had been destroyed by the tobacco smoke. This' fact has unconscious'y been the means of preventing large loss of life, as was noted in the recent cholera epidemic in Germany, when workers in cigar factories were found to be immune to cholera, and wherein the victims were mainly from the non smokers of the city. Experiments conducted in a cholera stricken house, one floor of which was occupied with a cigar factory, led Pro fessor Wencke, of the Imperial Insti tute of Berlin, to the conclusion that the cholera germs cannot endure to bacco smoke. It was found that saliva containing virulent germs was com ...
PHYSICAL ENERGY. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 7 August 1914
CT f,y PHYSICAL ENERGY. Perhaps you do not know it, but when you walk a distance of ten miles you expend enough force, could it all be collected, to raise 800 tons one foot from the ground. Of this enormous quantity of energy, the legs are re sponsible for 150 tonB, the heart for 100, the lungs for twenty-two, and the hulk of the remainder is wasted in the heat given off from the body. In severe athletic competitions, such as running, rowing, and boxing, you must be in such a condition as to ba able to exert, by your limbs alone, each minute, as much force as woulo lift 5,0001b. one foot above the ground. When a powerful man works fo ?24 hours with all his might, the ener gy he expends is equal to lifting a third-class cruiBer, and during his life he disBipates enough power to carry his body at death to the sun. These statements may at first sight seem ex traordinary, but will not seem'so when It is remember^ that two ounces of bread contains the potential energy of 150 tons.
BIRD DIVORCES. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 7 August 1914
BIRD DIVORCES. Generally speaking, the social life of birds is of the happiest description. Their courtship and marriage is one long love Bong, and it often happenB, as one famous naturalist haB put it., that while some young human couplo are pouring out their hearts to each other beneath the leaves of an apple tree some feathered Romeo 1b making ardent love to his coy, coquettish Juli et In the branches above. That clever student of bird life, Mrs. Olive Thorn Miller, maintains that birds have a distinct social life of their own,' which is full of Interest to the careful observer. The most important feature of their life Is that bird mar riages are permanent, implying con stancy in their affections, of which proof may be found everywhere. Parrots are notably devoted birds, and are willing to malce great sacri fices for their mates. She instances a case where one of a caged pair had managed to make her escape into th° open air.

MADE THE KING LAUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 7 August 1914
MADE THE KING LAUGH. A King of Prussia who reigned about the beginning of iaBt century was not ed for his geniality, and often in the course of his walks he would enter into conversation with his subjects. One day he met a young man and asked him what his faith was. Tho youth, who was somewhat of a wag, answered, smiling, "I believe what my tailor believes," The king entered pleasantly into the joke and then aBk ed again, "And what doec your tailor believe in?" "Your Majesty," replied the young man, "he believes that he will never get the thirty shillings that I owe him, and I believe it also." The King laughed heartily at the outspoken and unrestrained way in which he had answered him, and then gave him thirty shillings. "Now, then, you can pay your tailor and so change his faith." The young man fancied, however, that he could use the money for a better purpose, and the tailor naturally went unpaid. Not long afterwards the King met the same youth who, as he saw His Majesty approach...
