MOTH BEATS MAN [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 7 February 1914

MOTH BEATS MAN Ingenuity in insects has never been more remarkably illustrated than in a discovery just made by an entomologi cal expert -at Histon, in Cambridge shire (says "The Dally Express"). Ono of the greatest pests which fruit growers In this country havo to con tend with Is the winter moth. It be gins to appear in October, ami the fe male, whose wings are very short and quite unadapted to fight, climbs the trunks of the fruit trees and deposits her eggs. These hatch out in the spring, and the caterpillars soon devour tne young leaves. Hitherto fruitgrowers have in Sep tember placed round each fruit treo a band covered Villi a sticky substance, and when the female moth, climbing up the trunk, comes to the band, she Is held fast by the sticky substance. Recently, however, the female moth has been found from time to time above the band, and the mystery has beon how she could havo got there. The en tomological expert of Messrs Chivers and Sons, the well-known fruit growers of Hi...

BY KEEL AND WHEEL. No. 7: HONG KONG. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 7 February 1914

BY KEEL AND WHEEL. No. 7:. HONG KONG. [By Will W. Rock], Many years ago, at the close of a heated argument, a man told me, with some vehemence, to go to Hong Kong. Not until last week was 1 able to obey his command. 1 am sorry now that the opportunity did not occur sooner, for Hong Kong is a really nice place. Why i! should be adopted as a synonym for the nether regions, and used as the k "coup de grace" of an argument, I cannot understand. No one who has stood on the balcony of the Peak hotel, with one eye on the soda fountain bar, and the other on that wonderful panor ama of city, harbor, and distant Clunesc mountains stretching below and before him, would ever consign his enemy to Hong Kong. It is much too interesting, altogether too picturesque and delight ful. A little over two «lavsf steady steam ing brought us within coo-ee of the miniature island, ami only those passen gers abroad nt daylight saw the steamer wind her way through the beautiful Ly-e-Mun Pass, and into one of t...

TRAINED ANIMALS MR. THOMAS HARDY'S VIEWS [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 7 February 1914

TRAINED ANIMALS Mil. THOMAS HARDY'S VIEWS Air. Thomas -Hardy, in tho course of a letter to "Tho Times," says, that possibly soino animals may be, and are, trained for performances without discomfort to themselves, but there is ample evidence to show that many, trainers prefer short cuts to attain their ends, and that theso short cuts are by tho way of cruelty. I have been present, continues Mr. Hardy, at dog performances at country fairs, whero tho wretched animals so trembled with terror when they failed to executo the feat required of them that they, -could scarcely standi and remained with, eyes of misery fixed upon their master, paralysed at tho -knowledge of what was in store for them behind the scones, whonco their shrieks could aftqrwards bo hoard through tho canvas. And there are cruelties, of a mono insidious kind produced by drugs. As to the caging of birds, the assertion that a caged, skylark experiences none of tho misery of a caged, man makes demands upon our credulity....

CUPS OF COFFEE VALUE AS STIMULANT [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 7 February 1914

CUPS OF COFFEE VALUE AS STIMULANT In a recent Issue of the "Lancet" it is pointed out that hitherto such analyses of coffee as have from timo to time been made and published have referred to an examination of the entire coffee berry, and not to the infusion as it reaches the con sumer." - The results are now set forth of an investigation into-the composition of the infusion to he drunk, tho chemistry' of the "grounds" having been left out of consideration. In, drawing a comparison between coffee and tea the results show that while the alkaloid cuffeinc in coffee is identical with that in tea, yet its as-, sociattons In. coffee are different. In tea Infusions the alkaloid occurs chiefly as a tannate, which is a com pound insoluble in the acid juices of the stomach. In coffee it occurs in an easily soluble compound. . Here would ap pear to be the explanation of the prompt action of coffee as a restora tive and stimulant, particularly when employed as an antidote to narcotic poisons. I...
