Electricity as Nourish ment. A French scientist, hits brought out | the fuel that.the electric current | cuti serve to some extent in the place of nourishment for the ftutmm body, or, in more accurate language the electric "currents net to re store energy to the human body in a manner which is analogous to the effect of food. When' high-frequency currents Ursl began . to be used, as Professor Hcrgonie say?, it was shown by D'Ar.souvai that these could set up very striking heat effects in the or ganism, bo that the human ... body is internally heated. . Owing to their harmless action, no other ef fect, than development of heat is produced. .

Antarctic Magnetism. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 12 February 1914

Antarctic Magnetism, i It is dilttcult to say whether the meteorological or—the magnetic work of an Antarctic exploring party is the more valuable ; hut there is no doubt at nil that, .so far as any benefit to the nations of the world is concerned, cither of them pos sesses nti importance compared with which the more showy achievement of the geographers are of little value. It is gratifying, therefore, to learn* that a particularly fine piece of magnetic work has been car ried out by Mr. K. N. WVbh. the magnetician attached to the Maw son expedition. One of the principal achievements of the Shackletou expedition was the attainment of the "South mag netic Pole" by Professor David, Or. Mnwson, and Mr. McKay (writes "PhysicusV in the "Australasian"). This, statement- must not, however, bo misunderstood. The South mag* net' Vole, considered as u mathe matical point to which the lines of magnetic, force all converge, is cer tainly not on the earth's surface at all,- but buried,-pretty de...

Doctoring Sick Fish. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 12 February 1914

| Doctoring Sick Fish. 4 | This "fish doctors" at the big .Aquariums accomplish some extra ordinary feats in treating sick fish and restoring them to health and vigour. One sick fish, a salmon, was re ceived in such a weak ami ex hausted condition that it was ac tually unable to keep itself "right ed up," but lay on its side at the bottom of the tank, a fatal posi tion for a .: fish to assume by rea son of, the'obstruction thus occas ioned to the gill cover. • I Now, the gills of tlie fish art prac tically its lungs, through which, from the water it ul/sovbs - the «lr needed'-1 to sustain life. JJy opening! and closing the gill covers the fish controls the passage over its gills I of the constant supplies of water I wherefrom it extracts the air. It will thus be seen that if a fish in the condition of the one mentioned were deprived of—half its respira tory power, as it would be. by ly ing. 011 Its side and so closing the gill cover, it could not long sur vive.

CHAPTER XVIII. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 12 February 1914

CHAPTER XVIII. Tn order to connect the visit of Dr. Carpenter to Marchmere with other events bearing on the result, we must go back in our history a short time, and take up the thread of that portion of the narrative touching on the life of the false Lord Chester in London. We have already seen the effect of Mildred Moore's wonderful beauty upon Sir Peter Stccdc. From the time he made his first call on her, with the purpose in view of entreat ing her to set Lord Chester free from her ensnaring friendship, there aroso a tremendous rivalry between these two gentlemen for her smiles. If Lord Ch&ster presented the singer-with', a diamond bracelet, Sir Peter went.him one better, and gave her something a little more costly. Sir Peter had sprung at once into her favour" by buj'ing for her the covotcd diamond necklace which bad been beyond the means of Harnes. It is apparent at once that Barnes bad little chance for success in this war of extrava gance, for Sir Peter had his million...
