ABOUT RUBIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
ABOUT RUBIES. ? » ? ? All the great rubiee come from the mines of the Mogok Valley, In dia. There are four principal mines in the valley, in each of which mod ern tools and machinery are used ; this facilitates the proper exami n af inn nf a krirn amnunt of bvon Of ruby-bearing clay each day. In neighbouring valleys the B.urmans still prosecute their searches in tho old way, digging and washing by hand labour, often with astonish ing reBultB. In the large workings the -system has been reduced to a science, with corresponding results. The work goes on day and night. The ruby bearing clay is extracted by the opan quarry' method of removing all the surface down to the valuable clay, which is then dug up, carried on trolleys to the steam cleansing mill, washed, passed through the sieves, and then examined for ru bies and Bpinels. The byon stretches almoBt everywhere along the Mogok Valley, and wherever this clay ? exists rubies are to be found. Besides the pure ruby, spinel or balaB rub...
WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
WRINKLES. The prettiest face can be distort ed into ugliness by wrinkles, but these are not the wrinkles caused by thought or worry, they are those which are inevitably brought by dis content and selfishness. Wrinkles are marks of character, or they may be the result of physical ills, or of constant lauerhter. A wo man's face which is absolutely un lined is usually uninteresting and 'dollish'; on the other hand if it bears the hall-mark of perpetual grumbling, the sooner it is made to lose such blemishes the better. An American '''beauty doctor' advises for wrinkles on the forehead a course of massage done as follows : — Mas- sage across^ the temple using only the soft balls of the finger tips. Place the finger tips in the centre of the , forehead, drawing them firmly and slowing out towards the temples. Never rub from the temples toward the centre, as this only serves to. increase the wrink les; while massaging roughly will rub the lines in more deeply instead of rubbing them out. ...
TIN CANS AND THEIR USES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
TIN CANS AND THEIR USES, j One million three hundred thous and one-gallon 'tin cans are annu ally required to export petroleum from America, and the purposes for which these cans are used after the oil has been consumed are varied and peculiar. Thousands of .the cans are used as water-bu^Uets. The interior of a Malay,' Tamil, or Chin ese home contains American tin cans of all sizes and shapes, put to some useful purposes. Sieves are made by puncturing holes. Thous ands of dust-pans are made from the cans by removing one side, curving two sides, and attaching a large wooden handle. Baking and cooking utensils of all kinds are al so skilfully manufactured, and may be seen in thousands of homes. For storing articles of food against ant onslaughts the tin can is a blessing. Hundreds of men are engaged in manufacturing tin can funnels, pep per and salt casters, cocoanut and nutmeg graters, lamps, biscuit tins, .fr-o nnH rr-fTpf»-fV-tc^ InHlflC fflilfTfc, . ?cak€ pattuSft Tj&inese...
HOME INFLUENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
HOME INFLUENCE. It is the- home' which moulds the minds of our boys and girls — home influence, home example. Mothers and fathers should never forget that during the first years of .their boys' and girls' lives they look up to their parents as- gods— to. be obeyed, to be imitated in all things. Then comes the critical stage when chil dren have passed beyond the blind faith of childhood and learn to know their parents. Happy the father and mother who can fearlessly face this period, knowing that their ef forts and their lives, though very faulty, yet bear the stamp of sincer ity. _ It argues ill for the home influence when 'a long talk with mother' is not regarded as a privilege by the girls, for there are many subjects hat only her handling is delicate enough to touch upon, and, on the other hand, it is sad when a 'chat with father' is dreaded by the boys. The parents' treatment of each jther does much to raise or lower them in the eyes of their children, and also influences the boy...
LIVING PICTURES IN TUBE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
LIVING PICTURES IN TUBE. Moving pictures are produced, as is well known, by a film travelling with intermittent motion before a projector or lantern which throws successive views, on the screen The same result cojild be;obtaiued if the picture were stationary and the audi ence itself were in motion, so as to view the pictures successively. An ingenious inventor has hit upon this scheme to relieve the monotony of subway travel. He proposes to j mount a continuous band of pictures at each side of the subway, and have these pictures successively illu minated by means of lamps placed behind them. The circuits of the lamps would be successively closed by means of a shoe upon the subway car engaging contact plates at each side of the track.
PERPETUAL YOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
PERPETUAL YOUTH. + ? Every woman is ambitious ol keeping young as long as possible, and her ambition is quite a legiti mate one. But a resort to artificial methods of appearing youthful is a great mistake. The retention of youthfulness is largely a matter of mental direction. In the first place, a woman should never sur render herself to the idea ol age. She must keep her mind Iresh, strive to interest herself in things that interest her youthful friends, and avoid the carping, censorious manners which are apt? to develop in women of advancing years. She must try to retain not only mental, but bodily buoyancy, resisting the tendency to slow ands laggard step and the wilted and weary air to which weak-spirited women suc cumb. By aiming always to be cheerv and companionable, and tak ing a sympathetic interest in all ar ound her, a woman will not only look young for years after her actual youth has passed, but when the signs of age actually appear she will still seem to have preserved ...

Science Notes & Nets. A SWISS IDEA. An .'automatic gate is being test ed on a Swiss ojectric road. As a car approaches the grade crossing, the trolly bow mdkes contact with a. wire running parallel to the main trolly line, and thus energises a motor that in twenty seconds low ers a gate across the highway on each side of the railroad, and at the same time an electric bell is rung and two lamps are lighted.

ECONOMICAL DRESSING. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
ECONOMICAL DRESSING. ? ? T ? Neatness and proper care of the clothes are absolutely necessary for the impecunious girl who desires to look as well as the woman with money. When buying a pair of gloves sew the buttons on strongly 1 ? I* ? 4-Unm ? tVl'lf nil ueiore wcaiuig uiv,in , ?— the seams in ready-made blouses are firmly stitched ; sew the toes and heels of new stockings 'with darning cotton to guard against the inevitable holes; brush every dress well after wearing it,- and look for any weak spots which may be strengthened by the 'stitch in time saves nine.' When money is scarce veils seem costly, but the truest economy in this respect is to pur chase some fine net by the yard and make one's own veils. Cheap mac kintoshes are apt to crack and get shabby in no time. To avoid this never hang a mackintosh to dry in a warm room, nor near a fire, nor in a' cupboard. Do not fold it up whilst damp, and rub a little oil into it occasionally to prevent it from becoming hard. When a pin ...
THE WHITE LEGHORN. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
THE WHITE LEGHORN. The White .Leghorn belongs to the laying- or 'non-sitting class of fowl, and thus it is especially use ful for egg production. With the exception of the -Black Minorca, it is probably the best layer we have, as far as number and size are con cerned. The number equals that of the Minorca, but the eggs are not quite as large ; at the same time, they are by no means small eggs, being considerably above the ave rage. The eggs are white in colour, and of good quality. As would be expected, the table qualities of the White Leghorn.; are poor, and the greatest admirers of this breed can not claim the reverse is the case. When the birds are very young they are fair eating. Soon, however, they become; tough and stringy, together with a hardness of ilesh not found in many breeds. More than this, they are somewhat small for the table, as a fully-matured cock weighs but about 71b. A dis tinct advantage possessed by the White Leghorn over the majority of breeds is its extreme ...
DONT'S FOR GIRLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
i DONT'S FOR GIRLS. I Don't ever forget to thank the man who surrenders his seat in a train or omnibus to you. To take such a seat 'merely as a right is un gracious in the extreme. Don't, if vou have oerformed a kind act, talk about it afterward. Don't, when calling on friends, keep saying, 'Well, I really must be going,' and. then stay on and on. When you are ready to go, get. up, and go as speedily as possible, after saying good-bye. Don't ever try to snub people. Snubs have a disconcerting habit of coming home to roost. In addition to which, it is ungenerous to try to put anyone at a disadvantage. t)on't ever speak disparagingly of his relatives to the man you care fqr,. more especially of his mother. Don't think that smart hats and gowns will atone' for shabby shoes and gloves. They - won't. But well-made shoes and nice gloves will go a long way towards making you look well turned out, even if your gown is a little shabby. Don't, if you find it difficult to get on with people, e...

THE ANT AND THE GRASSHOPPER. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
THE ANT AND THE GRASS HOPPER. One bright day in summer an ant was hard at work getting food which she laid away for the winter. ' A -grasshopper flew down besides her and laughed at her for working so hard. He said: 'I would not work hard like that. Why don't you have fun like me? I dance and play all summer long.' When winter comes the little ant had her cellar full of food while the lazy grasshopper had nothing to eat and was forced to go to the ant for help. . Then the grasshopper was very sorry that he had danced the sum mer away while the ant was prepar ing for the winter.
THE AGE OF NIAGARA. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
THE AGE OF NIAGARA. To the question, 'How old are the Niagara Falls?' geologists have returned replies varying by tens of thousands of years. At first it was estimated that the Niagara River came into existence through changes in the level of the land around the Great Lakes, about 55,000 years ago. Later this was reduced, to only X 2;000 yuajar, - —TiycirrniirreaskJU uftr estimate again to 35,000 years, and still other scientists lowered it to about 9000 years. At one period, many thousands of years ago, the height of the falls was 420ft.
EARLIEST USE OF MINERAL INK. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
EARLIEST USE OF MINERAL INK. In ancient times Indian ink, made from lamp-black and £lue, was used for writing on papyri ; but in spection of the earliest MSS. on vellum or parchment shows that iron-gall inks were introduced not jater than the niijth century. .. The reason for the change was that al though a carbon ink is more per manent it has no penetrating power and can be sponged from the vel lum, whereas the iron ink bites into the fibres, and resists the action of air and light.
WHERE ABRAHAM FISHED. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
WHERE ABRAHAM FISHED. Mrs. Victoria de Bunsen, in 'The Soul of a' Turk,' relates a legend concerning Abraham which will be new to many readers. She learnt of it while at Edessa, the tradition al Ur of the Chaldees. She was shown there a large oblong tank of water so titled witn nsnes resting jum below the surface of the water that their fins and backs seemed almost wedged together so as to form 'an almost solid layer of silvery life.' 'The guardian of the mosque . . . throws some meal into the water and the fish jump high to catch Jt, a great living pyramid, of which those who jump the highest- form the pinnacle: The tradition is. that Abraham, as a child, fished in the tank. Hence the fish were consid ered sacred. No single one has even been caught or killed to this day. Indeed, death would overtake the man who transgressed this law.'
THE FLY ON THE CEILING. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
THE FLY ON THE CEILING. It is often a matter of wonder how flies get on to the ceiling, because to do so . they have to turn a semi somersault in the air, said Mr. Hen ry Hill in the course of a lecture de livered at the London Institute- A fly, said Mr. Hill, has a backward and forward movement of the wings, and can partly turn them around, in addition to the up-and-down mo tion of a bird's wings. That enables it to turn in almost any direction. At the end of each one of a fly's feet there -is,_a white pad with about 1200 hairs on it. Down these hairs are sent small drops of gum, so that the fly is really glued to the ceiling.
