Painting Restored by Clever Method. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 20 February 1914

Painting Restored by Clever lethoct. 4 One of the cleverest methods of re storing a painting ever used was that applied, in New York j-ecently in treating a canvas which, 011 ac count of its great age, had become almost us fragile as tissue paper. ' The first- step wus tho gluing, by means of a vegetable compound, of a thick piece of Manilla paper over the face of the painting. The pic ture was then turned over, and from its back was lucked thread by thread all the rotten canvas. At the end 01 this operation all that : remained of the original work was a delicate shell of paint glued to a sheet of paper. A new piece of canvas was then attached to the back of tho paint shell by means of strong fish glue. Tho Manilla paper 011 tho face was easily re moved with hot water, after which there remained the painting as be fore, but mounted upon n strong i new canvas.

SIX MILES UP! [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 20 February 1914

SIX MILES UP I (By GARRET P. SERVISS.) The greatest peril for those who ascend to great altitudes above the. earth is not that of falling. ,but that of being suffocated; like iish taken out of water. , It was the climbers of high j mountains who first discovered t 10 j fact that it Is often difficult for. men to breathe at a height of i from two and a half to three. miles above sea level. . i Hut more recent study has shown i that the difficulty arises mainly | from the comparative lack.-of gen in the upper air, and that tlus . may be overcome by means of appa- j rat'is supplying extra oxygen to the j lungs. , f ? The two principal constituents o . the atmosphere are osygen nnd "l* | trogen. Mixed, these are near the earth's surface, in the proportion; of about four volumes of nitrogen , to one of oxygen, the air is rcj spirable, and the inertness of the; nitrogen does no harm. But it the , proportion of oxygen is ml need, the. air becomes stifling. j Now, oxygen is heavier than m t...

Ancient Thermometers. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 20 February 1914

Ancient Thermometers. ^ 'Ilie earliest thermometers were of (ho expansion type, and were duo to tho exertions and research of Galileo. They consisted of a glass bulb with a canillary tube attach ed, the bulb beiruj filled with alco hol, which expanded with tem perature, tbe expansion being indi cated by the movement of tho alco hol tip or down the capillary. The scale on the thermometer was pure ly oh arbitrary one, and it was not until ^ IJooke, in 1681, sug gested the melting-point of ice and the boiling point of water that nny atteinpt was made to obtain a fundamental scale of temperature. Thirty years afterwards, in 1.711, Fahrenheit suggested his scale. As the Fahrenheit scalc is still the one almost universally used by 1'ng li.sh and American engineers, it leay be of interest to know ho,v Fahrenheit... obtained his scale. The explanation' generally accepted is d.:e to the late Dr. Gamgee. The lower lixed point of the scale was (ietennined by a mixture o:' r n >w and salt, a...

The Man in the Corner. A chiel's amang ye takin' notes an' faith he'll preDt 'em [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 20 February 1914

A chiel's ruuang ye takin' notes an' faith he'll preDt 'em On Sunday afternoon some of the Nardoo townsfolk were out for a stroll, and when passing the Shire Office one of the party saw a snake near the doorstep. " By George ! there is a snaka, look !'' he said, but before he could procure anything to kill the reptile with, it quietly moved fiom its sunny bath to a safer place under the building. SOOD a large crowd gathered, some per haps thinking that the Natimuk School Committee had come over to fumigate the hall or blow it up, and subsequent eveots seemed to justify the latter thought. A neighbor learning what had happened, quickly went and got his gun. After a lot of the earth was removed, he said, " Look out I I see him." He took careful aimB and iired. " I got the brute." he said proudly. Then everybody was much pleased that the beastly snake was settled, but when someone said " Where is the snake, Bill,'5 he said, "Oh, wait till I get a piece of wire and fish him out." Bill e...
