Law of the Flag. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 6 February 1914

Law of the Flag. ---H -, There are quite a number of peo I plo whom an 'excess of enthusiasm may lead into committing an of fence agaiust. the law. Ou reel letter days many a flag is hoisted which ought not to be, and com paratively few people are aware of ; the restrictions on this point. Tho [ whole matter wns laid down by an J Order in Council dated November 5th, 1S00. This still remains in force. The most important point to be . remembered is that the Royal Standard is the personal Aug of the Sovereign. It is hoisted where the Sovereign is residing, j and nowhere else, with a few excep tions, such as certain fortresses on Royal anniversaries or State occa sions, as laid down in the Royal Regulations. The "Union Jack, is the flag, of the whole nation, and any one. may fly it. . - For: over two centuries the Bri tish Fleet consisted -of, three divi sions-the 2:ed, (he white, and the blue-and each division flew an "En sign" of a corresponding colour, the white ensign being incorpor...

A Burglar Fiction. EMINENT DETECTIVE SPEAKS. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 6 February 1914

A BurgiarFiction. EMINENT DETECTIVE SPEAKS. " Scientific. burglary absolutely does not Mist," Is the pronounce ment of the former head of the Pa rig Rurete, or detective depart ment, Xttvier Gulchard, who has just, been interviewed ou the subject by Richard Arapu, a leading cri minologist. M. Ouichard, whose name became well known last year in connection with the automobile bandits, says that tho conception of the twen tieth century burglar, who goc.^ about his work armed with all the resources ond the latest discoveries of science, is merely h joke invented by writers of fiction. "The truth is quite different," lie went 011. "Take, for instance, tho oxy-liydrogen blowpipe, which is supposed generally to be used now to molt away the locks of safes. In all my experience as Chief do la Surete I came upon only two cases where this method was used, and one Was of a jeweller who robbed himself for the insurance, and used a blowpipe because ho had read about It in novels.

Navigating Space. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 6 February 1914

Navigating Space. {L (By GARRETT I'. SEKVTSS.) Tito statement has recently appear ed in print that, owing to the dis covery by Sir William Ramsay of a gas .sixteen times lighter than hy drogen, it m;iy become possible to send a balloon from the earth to the moon on to other planets. If this could bo done, it. would he the most wonderful thing ever accomplished by.ninn. A voyage to ; the moon would be an experience of indescribable novelty and infinitely more marvellous than Columbus's first crossing- of the Atlantic. But, the reasoning on which the statement is based is entirely erro neous, and the fact that it is cre dited to a "scientist" only shows how ignorant the majority even of educated people are of the real diffi culties to be overcome before a voyage in open space can be un dertaken. This seems a good occasion for showing how a trip to the moon could actually be made-provided that wo had the uieans. Suppose that this strange gas of unexampled lightness were pro duced . in ...

Remarkable Facts about Babies. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 6 February 1914

Remarkable Facts about Babies. 1 "I ne\er knew bet ore I. had one," said the professor of physics to hia bachelor assistant, "just how closely, our science could be applied to a baby. I have beeu astounded at tlits following true conclusions :. "As two similar bodies vary in weight as the cubes of their di mensions, I fmd that a baby two feet long should wejgh. just about one-sixteenth of a man five feet high ; also that, as the surfaces of two similar bodies vary as the square of their dimensions, a baby as before would have about one sixth the surfaco of the man. So the extent of surface proportional to weight in the baby is vastly greater than in the adult ; -in fact, a square foot of the baby's skin would shield just one-third , the sub stance of what a square foot would on an adult. "Arguing from this, and knowing that the rate of cooling of a solid depends on the extent of 'surface; I found that a baby got cold quicker, or worm quicker, when exposed to a fire than a man.

Gem Photographs Itself. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 6 February 1914

Gem Photographs Itself. » In a very short time the iris will be extremely fashionable among well-dressed, women-all the more from the fact that it is impossible that it should become common. At present the total weight of the gem-, does not amount to more than one-tcu-thous&ndth part of that of diamonds. v Hidden in a rugged mountain of Sail Diego, California, the passes of which arc guarded by armed men, are the only Known examples of -the new gem, placed by connois seurs only next after the dia mond, pearl,. and emerald in beauty and surpassing all precious stones in the fact that it is befieved to contuin radium.

"Rain Gambling." ? ^ The Indian custom of "rain gam bling" is referred to in a Blue Books containing evidence' given by Sir Daniel Mackinnon Hamilton be fore the HoyM Commission on In dian Finance and Currency. Sir .Daniel explained the method .employed-.' "In the hot weather," he .said, "wo get showers perhaps every three or four weeks, and as the rains '??approach the probability is that: those showers will become more frequent. There was a gamble whether the raiu would fall 011 a particular day or not. "There was a little lank with a spout fixed up on the top of a house in the Hurra Bazaar of Calcutta, which is the big native market-place, and if the rain fell sufficiently for this spout to run, it was consider-1 ed to have ? rained, and the man lost or won his bet accordingly.
