DANGERS OF A SCRATCH. !• Scarcely a day passes over that ' many persons do not, in some way 01 other, get a scratch, a small cut, or a bruise that may break the skin. In most instances not the slightest at' tention is paid to this beyond the tem porary annoyance of the pain and the possible irritation when the hands arr Eut into water, or some subsequent low in the same spot brings an ex 1 clamation on account of tne hurt, j of floating disease-germs, especially ! fciie air of cities and towns, and an ; Injury of this sort, be it ever so slight, | might furnish excellent breeding i ground for some deadly bacteria.

ADVENTURE WITH A MOUNTAIN LION. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 13 June 1914
JDVENTURE WITH A MdUNTAIH LION. L&ere » one animal (says a write! ,n the 'Los Angeles Times') I prefer to hunt above all others, and that is «he mountain lion. I wish my readers could see the marvellous leaps made by this hugl cat when hard pressed by a pack of hounds. Nothing short e! a good pack can run him; 30 and 40 feet lie makes at a bounc^. rising like a winged creature high above the grease-wood and chapparal; ground scent for the dogs is barely left, so daintily does lie alight; the hounds must use the slightly tainted air loi their guide. i It is a well known fact that tha mountain 1/on stands in the greatest terror of dogs. When chased by them he will first try to outrun them; fail ing in this, be will lake to the neares/ tree. But when there is no tree of re fuge, and the lion comes to bay, then look out. One stroke of the powerful Eaw means a dead dog, and unless the ■miter comes to the rescue with rifle or revolver, the savage brute will slaughter the whole pac...

LIFE OP MICROBES. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 13 June 1914
LIFE OP MICROBES. What becomes of the miorobes thai I abound in his body when a person dies ol a contagious disease? This question has been investigated in Ger . many by Dr Klein, who buried the t>odies of infected animals for stated periods, and then examined them for germ life. j He found that the bacillus of cholera lives nineteen days, but does jot. preserve its reproductive power after eighteen. The resistance of Eberth's bacillus (that of typhoid) is aearly the same. The ?erin of the | plague is always alive after seventeen j days of burial, but not after 3 weeks. ; The bacillus of tuberculosis (which, it j should be insisted upon, destroys j more lives than that of the plague, s although it frightens people less), does I oot survive the animal that it? has j killed. Klein has found it in th» i organs, but has never been able to | make cultures of it, and, a more im* i portant fact, 1>hs never succeeded in ] reproducing tuberculosis by injection# I of bacilli found in de...

THE OLD RAIL FENCE. It fitted well cacli rural sceno and lent it lialf its charm, The old rail fence, tlio ragged fence, that stalked, across tlio farm. It took its zigzag course along-ran on without an end, There cross-vines found a place to . .

This mossy-bearded, pioneer has almost ? . passed away, ."

GOOD FORM. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 13 June 1914
GOOD FORM. Young people frequently become most embarrassed when they suddenly realise that on the street, in a public conveyance, at .the theatre, the restaui ant or church, they liave done some trilling thing to make themselves con spicuous. Here are a lew simple lules which the uninitiated will do well to memorise: - When a young man meets one or more girls on the street car by accident lie does not offer to pay their faro. That is his privilege only when he is their escort for the trip. Girls in business are olten joined at lunch by young men employed in the same ofiices. Under those circumstan ces there need be no embarrassment over the check. The girl pays her own bill precisely as if the man had not appeared on the scene. When escorting a girl to the thea tre,, church or restaurant tho man must iirst ascertain whether .there is an usher or head waiter at tho.door. If there is, he permits" "the girl .to entQi' first, holding the door open for her. The usher or waiter leads the ...
