Some experiments seem to the frog is cap able of greater discrimination than had been credited tg hjifl. fxample, 3 frog was' offered hairy caterpillars, which it promptly seized, and with equal promptness spit out again. But after about from four to . seven such injudicious attempts tho frog hajl learned his lesson, and tfiere". after refused similar fare. In another experiment earthworms were so con nected with a source of electricity that the frog received a shock on touching the worm. The frog duly devoured the prey, and showe£ nq signs of dis comfort ' However, he refused for seven days to touch another earth worm, while he freely devoured other species of worms. Similarly, the frog could be taught to avoid w...

WHY ABSOLUTELY PURE WATER IS NOT GOOD FOR YOU. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 30 January 1914

WHY ABSOLUTELY PURE WATER IS NOT COOD FOR YOU. Olicmically pure water is dangerous to drink, according to tho declaration of a number of French Navy surgeons wllo have been making careful investi gations. After so much lias been said during tho Inst dccado about the dan ger of impuro water, such a declara tion sounds almost- preposterous, yet theso Frcnch Navy surgeons give logi cal reasons why thoro is danger in drinking chemically puro water. To make water chemically puro it has to bo distilled, and the continued uso of distilled water as a bevorago reduces tho strength of tho physical organism bccnuso, while it is free from all germs, it contains nothing but oxygen and hydrogen. The mineral ?alts are loft behind during tho process of distillation, and tho mineral salta nro really indispensable. "As long as life persists in tho body," tlieao surgeons declare, "tho elimination of mineral salts goes on, and this means the rapid domineralisa tion of tho' "organism.1' Domineralisation...

Although they have always had a bad reputation in the West, dragons ®rc in China and other- Eastern coun trise regarded as more or less benefi cent beings.. The unicorn, on the other other hand, was an old concep tion as the type or myth of a noble hero. For centuries its horn was re garded as an infallible antidote against poison, and the food'of the' French fcirijgrs and queens was toiu icd with an object, purporting to be a portion of the horn of the animal.

BLACK PRINCE AS MINER SON OF LOBENGULA. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 30 January 1914

BUCK PRINCE AS MINER SON OF LOBENGULA. Loben Lobengula, son of tho Mata beie warrior-king; died on Monday in his humble dwelling at Pendleton, near Manchester, in circumstances of dire poverty (says "Lloyd's Weekly" of No vember 30). When a report, appeared some weeks ago that "Prince Loben Lobengula" was lying ill and destitute in lodgings at Salford, the British South Africa Company published a statement that they ihad no evidence to corroborate the man's story that he was the late Mata bele chieftain's son, and that inquiries as to his antecedents were being made in Rhodesia. . It is, however, asserted by the Rev. W. D. Rees, vicar of the parish in which the exile has died, that he has' no reason to, doubt the latter's claim, and that the doubts publicly cast upon it had been a severe shock to the sick man, hastening his end. "The Prince's" story was that he fought under his father against the Bri tish troops in Matabeleland, and that he refused to accept the terms of peace which...

FLIGHT OVER MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 30 January 1914

FUGHT OVER MELBOURNE. . Rumors -went around Elsternwick on Tuesday afternoon that a flight in his Sopwith biplane was contemplated by the famous Australian aviator Mr H. G. Hawker, hero of the fine flight almost around Great Britain, for which the London " Daily Mail" presented him with a cheque for £1000. In consequence of the report, hundreds of people congregated soon after 4 p.m. at the -O.L.C. motor garage, where the machine was housed, to await events. In due course, about 5.45, Hawker and his airship were brought into the open. Amidst cheering the famous airman got into his seat, and, un accompanied, headed the biplane southwards down New street from the junction of that thoroughfare with Point Nepean road, where the garage is situated. Apparently apprehending no risk from the trees planted each, side of New street, he got the airship easily into motion, leaving the ground after, traversing about 40 feet on wheels. At a height of 300 or 400 feet Hawkey travelled several times...
