CAUSES OF FATIGUE INTERESTING LIST. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 5 February 1914
CAUSES OF FATIOUE INTERESTING LIST. Professor Wll1am Stirling, of Man chester University. delivering the Lady Priestley Memorial Lecture on "Health, Fatigue, and Repose," said that most of the bre'akdowns in a man's lifo were due to himself, either because of ignorance or recklessness, or both. Overwork, without sumelent repair of an organ, whether brain or eye, digestive organs or muscles, was the primary cause of fatigue. All the or gans of the body could not run at full speed at the same time. Mental fatigue greatly impaired bodily activity, and physical or muscular fatigue had a dis tinct effect on brain activity. The observations of Dr. Leonard.Mill on the effects of a liberal supply of oxygen in fatigue were most important. Somnolence in churches and chapels seemed on occasion to occur at sermon time, out it was not in all cases to be attributed to the sermon. The ex planation lay rather in the badly-venti lated atmosphere, and in the fact that Sunday, though the first day of ...

BRITISH PEARLS [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 5 February 1914
BRIITISII PERLS In early times Britain played its part in the production of pearls, and Taci tus refers to British pearls, but calls them dull-colored and dirty brown. Origen, on the contrary, declared that the pearls that came from Britain held the second rank of value. It was not, however, until about the twelfth cen tury that pearls were used in England, when . they became conspicuous in Church ornamentation. Henry VIII. obtained so0en costly pearls from the monasteries which he plundered. • mi i u u umn nnun

Besides chopping wood, drawing nails, nipping wire, etc., he will sing a song with my father, after which he laughs, like a human being. He will make a stump speech, dance to any tune played or whistled, and 're verses' on being told. Perhaps he thinks it's the tango. He can cough very well, and coughs a g~at deal, and is great chums with bur cat, who sits in his cage.
The Great Montamor Case. CHAPTER VI. The Pretender. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 5 February 1914
The reat Montamor By ALICE M. DIEHL, A.;?thoress of "The Knave of Hearts," CHAPTER VI. The Pretender. The entrance to Riverviow, as the villa was called, was in a lane. It - was well that there wss a wide car riange-drive and a large stable-yard, for the place was well stocked with motor-cars when Miss Halldare had slowly driven in. Arrangements had been made at the inns for the "put ing up" of the horse vehicles. There was a festive air about the trees and shrubs and house front, electric lights having been festooned about, produclng the effect of a shower of fireflies; and as Gwendolen ascended the steps. under an awning, she stop ped short to admire the interior. The hall, ordinarily of a kind which would pass muster as a decently-arranged entrance and escape comment, was transformed into a bower of pale green silky draperies, festooned with roses. Maids in white and rose color smilingly conducted the ladles to the dining-room, changed into a boudoir. i/ Gwendolen was sincerely p...

SWEETHEARTS' SILVERY LAUGH [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 5 February 1914
SWEETHEARTS' SILVERY LAUGH A specsalist on tile throat and volce has discovered that every man un consciously betrays his character when he laughs. So does every woman. Therefore, to study your sweetheart's silvery laugh Is to probe her secret mind. This learned spocihllst announces that each person laughs in one of the vowel sollnds. The man who laughs in "A," who emits a hearty "'IIa-ha!" is frank, loyal. and loves noise and movement. Thdso who 1laugh in "E" are phlegmatic, some of thile even melan cholic. 'l Their forced "'le-he!" comes fronm no sense of nlnlamusement. The timid, tile irresolIute, the naive, and tlhe pliable laufgh in "I." So do lchildren, says this student of laughs; and most people will agree that chil dren and foolish young women giggle In "1." The laugh in '"O" indicates on the one side generosity and good com panionship., on the other boldness or brultality. Never a villain in a mnlo drama lut who mlocked his victiml with a "lio-bo!" Those who ilaugh In "U" ...

'AT T'HE END OF THE RAINBOW. Familiarity. .) 13y \W.M. "Well, cap., what can I do for you?" asked the now clerk with one of those dance-and-sing smiles which exasper ate self-respecting men. '*You can't do anything for me," salid the village patriarclh, wearily, "unless you try to engrave upon the tablets of your memory the fact that I aim not a cap, nor a hat, nor yet a sun-bonnet.

SHOME HINTS. ;.. To clean lamp-glasses hold themo e ver a Jug of boiling water until well steamed, then polish with a dry dus ter. It is far less trouble than wash. ng, sand the glasses very rarely break. Whenrwashing valuable china or cut glass it is a good plan to place, a heavy Turkish towel at the bottom of the basin. This prevents all danger of the china and glass getting chip Ded. To preserve eggs, fill a wooden box with ordinary salt, smear each egg over with olive-oil, and place it in the salt with the pointed end downwards. Eggs treated in this manper will keep Cresh for some time. In giving medicine In liquid form to a baby, place "the point of the spoon containing the medicine against the roof of the mouth.

THE WISDOM OF THE RAT. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 5 February 1914
THE WISoD.). THE RAT. io. single paint better illustrates the saacity of a rat than the wvay in which it eats an egg. It bites through the shel! and chips off small fragments as'neatlbas nsqulrreietopens a nut, consuiied: the ·entiiei contenis without spilling a drod;p nd then sits up and licks itself clean litre a cat. Rats will steal the eggs from under a sitting hen. Their method of handling eggs Is Also characteristic; An egg is as big for a rat as a barrel is for a man, and * much more fragile. Yet there I5 evi dence of the fact that they pass eggs along from one to another, although not,* probably, as has often been re ported, by forming lines, like a buck et brigade.

The *eime device seems to he employed to carry an egg downstairs, the one that has the egg passing it ...
