For Kerve Sufferers. Dr. Edwiu Ash, author of "Ner ves and the Nervous," lias written a lit Lie book in which he deals with the elTect of ill-considered hustling, so common to-day. His panacea is tho acquisition of the habit of self-mastery in the little things of life. Three \ cry import ant, energy-wasters are : Indigest ible and hurried lunches, too tight clothing, needless worrying' about details of domestic, professional, ami business life. Dr. Ash says more must be spent- in eating, and less meat eaten. He adds : " You should not lie In bed after you wake in the morning, and you should I not indulge in naps. There is this ; to be said in favour of tffcj curly j cup of tea-that when it forms tho i awakening signal the mere act of drinking it is likely to rouse tho mental and physical activities and | prevent the desire for further slum- | ber."

Gas in the Cavities of Trees. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 20 February 1914

Gas in the Cavities of Trees. --? Professor J. A. Ferguson, of the Pennsylvania State College, re ports a curious phenomenon.connect ed with the cuttiug of-hardwood, trees in the Ozark Mountains/ Cavi 1 tics near the baso of the trees are often found to contain gas. When these cavities are cut into by the oak tie cutters of the region the I gas escapes with a whistling sound 1 showing it to be under pressure, ? and if lighted it will burn with a j faint yellow tlame. The sides of the j cavities containing gas are in all ! cases darkened, and look as though i seared with u hot iron. The popu j lar belief of the district is that . these lives- are connected through I their roots wilh a subterranean1 j supply of natural gas, and the land j on which they grow is valued ac ; cordingly. An examination of the I gas collected from a cot toil wood | tree was made by Professor Uush i ong, of the University of Kansas, ! and,it was found to be substantinlly l the same as natural gas. with the !...

Right Way to Eat Pineapples. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 20 February 1914

Right Way to Eat Pine apples. 4 Pineapples used to be considered i unwholesome, hut'In all probability this roputation was gained because ?they were not eaten in tho proper wny^or were not ripe enough. Most people eat pineapples the wrong way. They pare off the coarso; prickly outside skin and throw it away, not knowing- that tho skin really^ contains tho best part of the fruit. This outside skin contains a large proportion of the alkaloid principle, " bromelin," which is tho digestive ferment of the pineapple and which is somewhat similar in -its -medicinal effect to | pepsin. V The; correct way to' eat a pine j apple," to get the most good from it, is -first to pare off tho rough outside skin. Squeeze these par ings iu a lemon squeezer and pour their juice, sweetened or not, as preferred, over the pared pineapple when cut in slices; In .this way all the powerful "bromelin" is. saved, and enhances the flavour of the ! pineapple-itself. ; ^ I. -Pineapples should always, be eaten ? a...

Your Eyes are Like a Japs. WHY THEY DOOK DIFFERENT. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 20 February 1914

I Your Eyes are Like a Japs. -4 WHY THEY DO OK DIFFERENT. We call the Japanese "almond eyed" and the Chinese "slit-eyed," and most of us are apt to suppose that their eyes are of entirety dif ferent shape from our own. But such te not the case. The eyes of; nil the races are practically alike in shape, their difference in appear ance being due 'solely to a diller ence in the opening of the lids. Among the Caucasians when the eyelids are drawn open the outer' and inner ends of the lids form a straight, horizontal line. The lids' open wide without any special ef fort, presenting the efiect of the full eye. Among the Chinese and other: Mongolians the lids do not open so far, and on this account they are often spoken of as "slit-eyed." Al so the line from the inner to the outer corner of their eyes is not perfectly horizontal, the outer end being slightly higher than the in ner corner, thus giving the effect of what is termed the "almond eye." Tn the Caucasian eye the end of the tearduc...

Asleep in the Dustbin. ^ The dustbins of Rouen, which the authorities of (hat (own boast, tiro of the most modern t,\pe in France, have been nearly responsible for the death of a man. When the. dust bins have been collected early in the morning: they are hooked on to an endless chain which carried them up to the. top of a furnace and there automatically empties them. When this was being done on Friday, a workman noticed what looked like a good pair of trousers in .one of the dustbins, ns it, was about, to be emptied into the furnace. Anxious to stive the garment for his own use, he pulled the lever which stops the movement of the chain. Looking closer, he found a man asleep in the dustbin. The man had been put in the dustbin to sleep, as a joke, by several companions with whom ho ha'd spent the cveuingj and wlio were intoxicated.

".Let. us first throw this little dog over." The man immediately threw down the dog. "rretly sport," said the I.ord Chancellor. "Xow, go down and bring him up ; then try again." While the madman went down for the dog, More made fast the door behind him, and so managed to hold the fort until deliverance came.

Speed of the Wind. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 27 February 1914

Speed of the Wind. V Up to ^the present the greatest speed of the wind - has never been measured, for the simple reason that no instrument has yet been in vented capable of doing" so. In 1S7S an anemometer cm . Mt. Washington registered 18(5 miles an hour, which is the highest velocity oh record, and last November a Robinson anemometer w'as blown away, in Jamaica, when registering 120 miles per hour. A tornado, however*?-.??blows, far harder than that. At various times attempts have been made >tc/. esti mate the velocitw of wind.-in a tor nado by observing.: its, effects. For instance, in 1875 a board of pine wood was blown against, and right through, a telegraph-pole ; whilst during the same storm another plank was driven " three inches into the trunk of a tree. It was calculated that such ef fects could, only have been - pro duced by», a force little less than that of a cannon-ball-that is to say, the wind must have been trar veiling at the rate of betweeu six and eight hundred...
