Dowries for Gifts. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 11 September 1914

Dowries for Gifts. At different times thoughtful peo ple have stipulated in their wills that a certain sum of money slmll be set aslrle to provide dowries for girls. The best-known example is the Bute Marriage Dowry, established hy a Marquess of Bute, who left £1000 for tho purpose. The annual inter est upon this money, about £30, is presented each year to a claimant for it, the fortunate girl being cho sen by the Mayor of Cardiff. When handing the money over to .the lucky young lady and her sweetheart, it is customary for the mayor to read the young couple a portion of the second chapter of St. John, which refers to'the marriage in Cana of Galilee. Dowries for girls are also pre sented at Guildford, the practice of throwing dico for what is called the "maid's money" taking place an nually. The money is derived' from capital set apart in the will of. a certain John How, who requested ' that dowries should be paid to poor servant girls who had worked faith fully in the borough for so...

A Deadly Industry Made Perfectly Safe. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 11 September 1914

A Deadly Industry Made Perfectly Safe. U seems extraordinary that pri mitive methods of obtaining tho necessary combustion «'or getting fire oi' light should havo provuiicd down to tho beginnings of the lust cei^ury. Yet such was tho case. It was not until the thirties ot tho nineteenth .century that a young Austrian mechanic, Johann Jrlny, invented the Inciter match. It is true that sulphur matches had been in uso for some little time before this, but these were vory crude ntfnirs, and ns such ver.v unreliable Jrlny enmo along and added a little phosphorus to the sulphur that tipped, the small slips of wood nnd there sprang, into existence the lucifer match. Truly one of the great events of civilisation 1 This kind of match held its own for many a long day, but It had some very detrimental properties besides the extremely useful ono of a fire producer, and so it had to go in the end. It is well known that phosphorus is remarkably combustible. A light rub on practically any surface ...

Gems that Change Colour. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 11 September 1914

Gems that Change Colour. The newest fashionable gem is one that has the somewhat- startling peculiarity of being a quite dif ferent colour in the evening from its daytime hue. In daylight it is a brilliant golden yellow. At night, under artificial light, it is "a bright emerald green. Its name is the heliodore, and it is a brand-new discovery, the first specimen of it having cuily been found quite recently. It comes from German South-West Africa, and the boom of it comes from Berlin, where the Kaiser has made it a fad in Court circles. The Kaiser al ways wears the first-known specimen in a ring. All Hatton-garden is keenly interested in the new gem. The only other quick-change gem is the alexandrite, ? so rare a stone that a good specimen runs dearer than diamonds. An alexandrite is a glowing raspberry red. It Is | found in Russia, and got its name i from the fact that the first speci ! men turned up the day the Czar reached his twenty-first birthday. There was a boom in the stone, ...

Swaps Crown Property. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 18 September 1914

Swa^ts Crown Property. I England is at present the only country in the world which prac tises with success, nnd on a largo scale, the raising of swans. This privilege is largely due to tho fact that the British Isles form an im portant halting stage in the routo taken by the numerous (lights of wild swans when they leave tho northern shores of Scandinavia for Contral Africa. Qufte the most importnnt of tho swan farms or swanneries in tho British Islands is that at Abbots bury, near Weymouth, in Dorset shire, which dates its foundation from the 18th century. Tho birds" aro distributed over an immense do main, formerly occupied by nn ab bey, comprising mnrsliy meadows and copses.

Typing Musical Scores. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 18 September 1914

Typing Musical Scores. The typewriting of musical scores is now made possible by a machine that has appeared on the French market. The same machine may be used for ordinary typewriting in several languages, the letters and numerals, and the musical characters or signs being carried on small drums. The drum for writing music contains eighty-four signs which, singly or in combination, produce all the' characters necessary to write a complete score within a range of six and a half oc taves. The treble or \iolia clef, for instance, is written by four ope rations, the bass clef in three, etc., even the staff itself being written on the machine. The characters are not written side by side as usual, but in a ver tical line. The musical characters are all marked on J,he keys of the machine along with the letters and other signs of the written language, in a different colour. This ar rangement is made possible by a simple mechanical device connected with the shaft of the roll holding th&...

Does the Air Carry Disease. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 18 September 1914

Does the Air Carry Disease. "It's in the air" is a phrase that will no longer be considered appli cable to disease. Dr. C. U. Cha pin flouts the idea that the air enn convey infection, and other mcdical authorities support hint. Up til! recently it was considered that at least malaria and yellow fever came by tho air route to their victims, as did typhoid fever, cholera, dysentery and diarr hoea, not to mention typhus fever and plague. The excretions, as well as the breath, were assumed to give olT the germs. When the Prince c* Wales in 1871 contracted typhoid ; fever at Snndringham, the escape of sewer gas into his apartment was considered ,by everyone a sufiicicnt explanation. Now, savs the 'Lan- 1 cet,' conveyance by infected water I or food is universally held, and the! "carrier" has supplied the missing! link in previously inexplicable cases. The discovery and study of the cas ual microbes has shown that it is ) by water, food, contact, flies, and carriers that these diseases a...

The Internal Bath. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 18 September 1914

The Internal Bath. Dr. Garey, the French specialist In appendicitis, has asserted that al most, all of his appendicitis pa tients were water drinkers, from which he deduces the theory that wine is a safer beveraga than water. Commenting on this, another spe cialist, Dr. W. F. Varcoe, says that on th» contrary, freo water drinkers seldom if ever have ap pendicitis. Most of those afflicted with that disease have not drunk enough water, but too much wine, beer and whisky. The doctor assures us that pure water or diHillcd water well aerat ed, is certainly better than wine, especially the cheap wines of artifi cial manufacture, which are very in jurious to the system. Constipation is the most frequent cause of ap pendicitis, and ono or two classes of water before retiring and one half hour before breakfast will euro many cases of that torpid condi tion. , Water gives an internal bath ; it dilutes the fluids in which the colls of the body are bathed; it increases assimilation, metabolism ...

City Underlaid with Gold. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 18 September 1914

City Underlaid with Gold. The ground on which Philadel phia is built is shid to be of the richest goldfields in the world. The only difficulty . there is that the field cannot be worked. Nearly the whole city is underlaid with clay to the depth of about 10ft.-an area sny, of ten miles square. A cubic foot of clay, weighing about 3201b., taken from » depth of 14ft., when the cellar of the Twelfth-street market-house was ex- j cavated, was practically demon- i strated to contain seven-tenths of a grain of gold, or lib. in 3,224,000. The experiment was repeated with about the same results with clay taken from a brickyard in the su burbs. Supposing the whole mass of clay to be 4.180,000,0001b. (and it is! really much greater), the amount of j gravel is much richer in gold than the clay, but there is not so much of it. Undoubtedly £200,000,000 worth of gold lies within 3 5ft. of the sur face, and still it cannot be used. Feeling not in the best of humour but very hungry, he went into a r...

Far back in the interior of ftn Empire city (Panama) block I came upon an old negro woman, parch ment-skinned and doddering, living alone in a stoop-shouldered shanty of boxes and tin cans. "Ah don't know ol' nh is, mahster," was one of her replies, "but ah born six years befo' de cholera diskivered." "When did you come to Pana ma ?" "Ah don' know, but it a long time ago." "Before the Americans, perhaps ?" Oh, long befo* ! I)e French ain't only jes' begin to dig.
