MEDICAL MENMS. The Value of Ventilation. In order to ensure health there are no grea:ter aids than clean!iness and good ventilation. While our gr:and mothers and grandfathers lived toler ably well in what we shouit now con sider Insanitary houses, there is !itt:e doubt that we all benelit itnunen.-ie'y by our improved knowledge of sanitary matters. The sanitation of a house affects people's health, nerve:, and tempers much n:ure than t!hey :Ire aware.

VALUE OF BEES. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 2 September 1914
VALUE OF BEES. To give an idea of the value of bees In agriculture, It is stated by a writer that in a colony during summer con taining an average of 20,000 foragers, 80 of these fly from the hive to the pasturage every minute; therefore. taiking the working hours as from 7 o'clock In the morning to 5 In the after noon, 48,000 flights woulld be made. During each flight every bee visits at least 50 blossoms. This amounts in yound numbers to 2,000,000 for the hive in one day. The same writer rec kons that there are on the average 100 fne days when bees are able to fly. consequently 200,000,000 blossoms may be fertilised in a year by the bees of one colony. When only one-tenth of these blossoms are properly fertilised. it leaves the enormous number of 200,000,000 fertilisations to eacll col ony.
LIGHT HUMOR. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 2 September 1914
LIGHT HUMOR. In the latter part of the eighteenth century one of the members of a little scientific society in Liverpool laid a curious wager. tie bet a brother scien tist that he would read a newspaper by the light of a farthing dip at a dis tance of 2Oft. The B.S., finding the teat dfficult at even a sixth of the dis tance, cheerfully accepted the wager. The layer merely coated the inside of a shallow wooden box with sloping pieces of looking glass so as to form a concave lens, placed behlnd-hisfarth ing dip, and readily deciphered the s;mall print at the stipulated distance. The experiment was witnessed by a Liverpool dock-master. He was a thinking man, and saw great possibill ties in this learned jest. H straight way adapted the principle to Ifght house requirements, and forthwith the modern reflected light, with its miles of reflected range and untold life-sav ing powers, sprang into being.
Quite Safe. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 2 September 1914
Quite Safe. A number of Glasgow people spent an Easter holiday at Rothesay, the popular Clyde watering-place. There was some excitement at the pier in the afternoon; a young lady fell into the water. Immediately there was a cry of alarm. One young fellow man fully jumped into the sea, and after a heroic struggle managed to get the unfortunate girl on to dry land. As he himself scrambled up the beach, the young lady held out her hand, and, greeting him effusively, said: "My dear sir, how can I ever thank you! What a risk you've run!" IHe took the proffered hand, and then, in the dry, cynical way that is characterlstic of him, answered: "No risk at all, young lady. You see, I'm married already,"
One Probable Explanation. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 2 September 1914
One Probable Explanation. It was an ancient village. Its church was old, its cottages old, its inn was old, and its cheese was very old. But the visitor was informed that the oldest thing in it was Gaffer Gammon. "Indeed?" said the visitor. "I must see him!" For if he were really -older than the cheese, he must be well worth a visit. His host conducted hfm out into the old courtyard, under an old bridge, over an old stile, and along an old road. At last they stood be. fore the venerable and venerated hu man relic of the past. "Here we are, sir!" said the guide, proudly. "Some say be be 112 years old. Now, how d'you account for his livln' all these years?" "Well," suggested the visitor, as he I regarded the feeble husk of humanity i reclining obliviously on a bench, "per baps he's never done anything else!"I
The Power of Music. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 2 September 1914
The Power of Music. At a tea the other afternoon the conversation turned to the wonderful power of music, when an actress told of a bagpiper walking along a road in tile country when the door of an ad Jacent house suddenly opened and an immigrated Scotchman rushed out to meet him. "Would you mind playing a few tunes in front of the house?" asked the Ilatter. "Mither is very low, and the doctor, who is now sitting with her thlnk.t that if she heard some of the good old music from home it might re v?i? her." The munlclan readily complied, and for an hour he walked up and dolwn the road in front of the house playing the airs of bonny Scotland. Fina:lly the man from the hounse again apnea'r ed. "Thank you very mucil. Sandy," said he. "Would you now mind play ing the 'Dead March'?" "'The Dead March?' " returned the bagpiper, with at look of conlcern. "Then did your mlther die?" "N'o, Sandy," answered the son, "ml ther Is getting better, hbut yotl killedi the poor doctor."

Precision. "\Well, Pat" (from an inner room), "what are you doing: Are you sweeping out the shop?" Pat: No; Oi'm swaping out the dirt and lowlng the shop! "H?ave you ever heard Jimkins re late about the time he got half-way up Mont Blanc with one of his little nephews and no guide?" asked one man of another. "How long ago did he tell you about it?" was the evasive reply. "Last year, when he'd just got home," said the first man. "Well," said the other, "in eight months since then he has climbed the rest of the way, succored a fainting guide, and sustained a snowstorm on the summit, resuscitated two benumb ed strangers on the way down. and guided the entire party to the foot, where a group of frantic relatives was waiting!"
