WHY WE ARE RIGHT-HANDED. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 5 February 1914
WHY WE ARE RIGHT.HANDED. One of the prOfessors at a well known agricultural college has figured it out that if you are left-handed it is a sign that your ancestors were not good fighters. says he. "Only one in every twenty is left-handed. Why are people right handed? They may have been born that way, it is true: but why? "Away back in thile beginning the chief occupation of man was lighting. In battle he carried a shield in one hand and ai wealpon in the other. It shield, but the quick action requiredl by the hand andIl airnlm which did the lighting soon developed that arm. Il rilso developed the nerves and thie halt of the brain that governed the right side of the body. Those who shielded their left side-htuls protect ing the heart--were the ones who usul ally came out victorious. Down through the ages this selection con tinued, the right hIland gradually bo Cotning more proficient." "Ma, what is meant by the Progrcs sive party?" "The Progressive party, my dear'?

SCRAPS. We are in receipt of " The Austra. lian Journal" for February. The serials-His Natural Life, Sundered Hearts and A WVorthy Son of the Soil-are at interesting stages. The miscellaneous matter and short stories are good, and the ladies' page should call the attention of the sex. The Dandenong Company staged some splendid pictures on Friday and Saturday nights last to full houses. The jungle scenes, in which bears and tigers were in evidence, were most'exciting, especially where the great serpent wrapped its folds around a prostrate man. The latter made the ladies seem creepy. Mr P. Maloney, ex-M.H.R., will give an address from the Royal Hotel balcony on the evening of February r3th. Subject: " The proposed labor daily newspaper."

MR. W. S. KI(EAST, M.L.A. Hope deferred has not made sick the heart of the member for Dande nong. For 12 years Mr lKeast has been asking a question in the Legis lative Assembly. He asked it again when the House met on Tuesday afternoon. Did the Ministry intend to establish a new Agricultural Col lege within easy distance of Mel bourne, and, if so,-Mr Keast has not lost faith even yet-would the Ministry hear representations from the southern district near Melbourne -surely Dandenong-before finally selecting a site ? The answer, given by the Minister for Agricul ture (Mr Hutchinison) was--" It is not the intention of the Ministry at present to establish another Agricul tural College." WVhereat Mr Keast remarked, as he did 12 years ago, that a great mistake vas being made - -.1,-- -
SPORTING. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 5 February 1914
BPO RTING. The Victoria Club will hold a race meeting at Sandown Park on Wed nesday, February xi, and over 100 entries have been received for the six events. Among tile horses en gaged in the Victorian Club Handi cap are W\Valer, Cider, and t'he South Australians, Wassail and Musket Belle, and Andelosia. Indiscreet, Roseview and other Victorians. In my notes last week I expressed surprise at the colt Andelosia being engaged in the Plate at Sandown on Saturday. He started in the race, and made a sorry exhibition. Lam. bert had the mount and he got away at the tail of the field, and appeared to hang right back behind his horses. When well into the straight the Derby colt was ridden with some show of vigor, and ran into second nlro hphind Roanev. I must con fess I cannot understand why the colt was entered, and, when entered, why started. The stake was only worth [6o to the winner, the betting was naturally cramped, as there was nothing to boat, and it took the winner 1.17 to get over ...

GLUTTONY IS A CARDINAL SIN. By Dr. Frank Crane. Most people are gluttons. A glutton Is one who eats more than he needs. - When the amount you eat passes beyond the necessary to keep body and mind in a lit coltdliton, you become a gluttott. It is an ugly word.

You will be more liable to be ashamlted of yourself if you call that ttuntroltl of y'ours a lie instead of Ilan e\aiosion ad yourself a liar ilsmtead of a diloilnat. 13ie snoothl andtl polite to others, for that you shloul; biut be hard and hotest with yourself.
