ROBIN HOOD. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 6 February 1914

KOBIN HOOD. There lias never been an .outlaw round whoso name such romuncc has hung as "Robin Hood" of the .Middle Ages. Even lus existence Jias been doubted ; !»ut it js now fair ly certain that such a person did exist, and that he gathered round him a band of "merry men." These outlaws haunted Sherwood Forest, near .Nottingham, and the identity of She leader has never -been ascertahi ed for certain. Some have thought he was the last of the great Snxous who held out against the Normans when these conquered the kingdom, others that he was the outlawed K.-i rl of Leicester, who led a. revolt in the reign of Edward II.; others that- lie was the leader of those who were scattered after the death of Simon de .Mbntfcrt. It seems certain, however, that he was the "Jiobyn . Hodc" -who was pardoned by King F.dward IT., who gave him a pension on condition that he gave up his lawless life [ and remainedat-:. Court.

The Cold Bath. ITS GLOW OF REACTION. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 6 February 1914

The Cold Bath. ITS GLOW OF REACTION. If you do not feel warm alter a cold bath you had hotter not take it, for it is doing you no good. Wc do not take cold baths for the sake of cleanliness ; cold water may wash off the superficial dirt, but it does not extract the dirt from the pores. Wo plunge into cold water solely for its invigorating effect and \unless we get this effect from it we had better seek the iu vigoration in some other way. Cold, water applied suddenly drives tlio blood from the skin by constrict ing the capillaries. It also , admin isters a light shock to the nerves, which has an awakening effect upon all the muscles "of the body. The capillaries being closed, the resistance of the blood to the heart , pressure is greater. The heart re-: sponds to this resistance by greater effort ; it beats ? more rapidly and with stronger force. The blood surges through the body more swiftly and forces its "way through the capillaries as soon as the cold that has closed them is wit...

A Wonderful Insect. LOOKS LIKE A LITTLE GREEN ELECTRIC LIGHT GLOBE. I There exists in the tropical coun | tries of America and in the West j Indies a curious species of insect ? which the natives call "Cocuyos,''. meaning night light insect. This : insect emits a. brilliant green.; light j from, each eye and a green light , from the under part of the stomach; j Some of the natives in Cuba; Mexi ! co and' South America use the {insect light to read by, placing i about fifty- of- them in a long glass tube or bottle, called a "Cocu y6ra." Another method is to hang the "Gocuvera" over one's bed and then when you want to see - the time at night; strike the bottle gently with , the hand, when the "Cocuyos" will light up. This insect is quite harmless and inoffensive and "caii be carried in the hand.' Jf its stomach "'is gently pressed by : forefinger and thumb it will give a light like a small elec tric torch. These " peculiar insects vary in size, but the largest xome from the Province o...
