For instance, it may ren der the murderer easy of detection, and the divorce riddle, where there are children, easy of solution.

A I'OKTUNB HV A COIN. Somewhere in the world then) is a . fortune iti ;i coin. Among the ' coins Napoleon had minted wero ( some millions of five-franc pieces,} find he determined to popularise those in an extraordinary way.

Romance of London Water [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 27 February 1914
Romance of London Water 1 It is Just, tlirco centuries ago that tho water of the Now lllver was turned into tho company's reservoir at-Clerkenwell. Tho four years' la bour, backed by tho onterprlso and faith of Sir Hugh Myddcltun, brought water to London through woodon pipes and to Londoners' houses by small lcadon pipes. Hut llko many gront invontors, lie was almost ruined in carrying out his idea, and never gained a farthing from tho New River Company, whirh puid no dividend during his life time. It is tho fntp of tho artist whoso picture, given in payment of a tavern bitl, is priced at thou sands after his death. Myddelton, if ho still notes mundane matters, must bo glad that his company promotion ended in usefulness and profit. A single £5 original share in tho New River Company would bring its owner to-day a fortune of something Uko £100,000 I

If you have a hollow tooth and | it. aches, cut a piece of clove to fit the cavity and put it in lightly, allowing the upper part to stick out like a cork in a bottle. It will soon swell, keeping the air from the nerve, and the pain will cease until the clove drops out, when it may bo replaced by another. Cucumber-rind cut into thin slips and put about where ants abound will invariably drive them away.

Another War Terror. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 27 February 1914
Another War Terror. Siguor Ulivi, an Ttalian, professes \o have invented a machine which, if his claim can ho substantiated, will add another horror to war far exceeding 'anything hitherto invent ed. According to his statement, the machine projects to any distnnco rn.vs, designated ns "F" rays, which lmvo the power of causing electric sparks upon all metallic objects with which- they come in contact. Should the "F" rnys bo directed upon a battleship, the electric | sparks occurring - in the magazines : cause the explosion of the ammuni tion. H would be the same with powder magazines, ammunition wag gons, loaded guns, or anything else j containing explosives. Signor IJlivi gave the following account of his' first practical experiment: " Ono evening I thought of projecting the ' F ' rnys against the gas-meter. I did so, and the meter blew up. My laboratory was destroyed, and I es eapod 'by a miracle. From that time I mado further experiments in a .similar direction, and having ob tain...

INTERESTING ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 6 March 1914
INTERESTING ITEMS. Flowers have been artificially col oured with more or less success, but until recently animals have escaped the experiments of the, investiga tors. Now, however, we aro as sured that fishes may bo so col oured n.s to suit the human fancy. In Sicily, it. is reported, by the in- , troductiou into the water of chalk, i iron, and a quantity of peat, col- j ours may be imparted to the carp. ; After treatment in a bath of these concomitants for a couple of weeks the fish is given another chemically , prepared hath into which there are. introduced iron and tan. Hy Jn- j creasing or diminishing the quan- j tities the colour is said to bo' accentuated ' or diminished. The pro cess is said to be somewhat hazar dous, but produces ornamental fish.

More and the Maniac. 4 in front of his Chelsea House Sir Thomas More had a garden and gatehouse, and as there was a plea sant view from the summit of the gatehouse, he used frequently to sit there, accompanied only by his dog. Here it was that ho was found one afternoon by a wandering maniac, who crept upstairs and found the feeble old man dozing. "Leap, Tom, leap," he cried, and nt tho same time tried to throw him over the battlements. More had not physical strength enough to resist, but ho had the wit to say, ".Let lis first throw this little dog over." The man immediately threw down tho dog. "Pretty sport," said the Lord Chancellor. "Now, go down and bring him tip ; then try again." While tho madman went down for the dog, More made fast tho door behind him, and so managed to hold tho fort until deliverance came. A seedy-looking man applied lo the lato Mr. d'Oyly Carto, in tho days of his management at tho Sa vo.v, for a job. Mr. Carte was just then 'trying some candidates for the...

The Treaty of Amiens, i/i 1802, provided for the restora tion to this holy order of this island ; but against this its native inhabitants strongly protested, be ing sure that the French would then try to get control over it.
