The Railway Whistle. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 20 February 1914
| The Railway Whistle. Thu l.eiccst or .mil Kwannington Kailway, now owned l?y tlie Mid land Kailway, has celebrated its seventieth anniversary. It was on this 1 iii«* that I hf stea-n whistle was first used. One of tin- old "Kockets" ruml'liug along the lino ran into a cart on a level cross ing. The carl was smashed to bits, the horse and driver had a narrow escape. The engine-driver had sound ed his horn ; hut the sound was not lierce enough to warn tlu* car ter, who, likely enough, after the fashion of country carters, was asleep on one of tin* shafts. Ci,eor^»> Stephenson, who lived in the neigh bourhood. was appealed to, and he devised the steam whistle, which was at once adopted l'.V nil the' other lilies.

The President (Or Smyth) in referring to tho document said it wius the most in sulting report that lie had ever seen, and the personal reference nmJo by Hie iuspector to councillors was most uncal led for.

Right Way to Eat Pineapples. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 20 February 1914
Right Way to Eat apples. J'ineapples used to bo considered unwholesome, but in all probability this reputation was pained because they were not eaten in tho proper way or were not ripe enough. Most people ont pineapples the! wroup wnv. They pnro off tho I conrs&lt;\ prickly outside skin and j throw it away, not knowing thntj tho 2-kin renlly contains the b^st i part of the fruit. This outside skin j contains a Uirp^ proportion of the! nlkri!»id principle, " bromelin," ' which is the. dipestivr ferment of the' pineapple and which is somewhat; similar in its medicinal effect to ! pepsin. I Tho correct. wny to cat a pine- | appb\ to pet the most. pood from it, is first to pure ofT the rough ! outside .skin. Squeere these par- 1 inps in a lemon squeezer and pour 1 their juice, sweetened or not, as preferred, over the pared pineapple! when cut in slices. In this way all 1 the powerful "hromvliif* is saved, j and enhances the flavour of the1 pineapple itself. ! Pineapples should u...

For Nerve Sufferers. 1 Dr. Edwin Ash, author of "Ner ves and tlio Nervous," has written n litUo book in -which he deals with the effect of Ill-considered hustling, so common to-day. Ills pnnacoa is the acquisition of the habit of self-mastery in the little things of life. Three very import ant energy-wasters arc : Indigest ible ami hurried lunches, too tight clothing, needless worrying about details of domestic, professional, and business life. Dr. Ash soys nioro must he spent in eating, and less meat oaten. ITe adds : " You should not lie In bod after you wake in the morning, and you should not indulge in naps. There is this to be said In favour of tftv: early cup of tea-that when it forms the awakening signal the mere act of drinking it is likely to rouse tha mental and physical activities and prevent th« desire fur further slum ber." Here are Dr. Ash's genenil rules for living up U> our true valu" in energy production : Wear reasonably loose clothing, spend at least one hour i...

Gas in the Cavities of Trees. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 20 February 1914
Gas in the Cavities of Trees. 4 Professor J. A. Ferguson, of the Pennsylvania Stale College, re ports ft curious phenomenon connect ed with the cutting of hardwood trees In the O/ark Mountains. Cavi ties near the base of the trees are often found to contain gas. When these cavities arc cut into I>y the oak tio cutters of the region the gas escapes with a whistling sound allowing it to bo under pressure, and if lighted it will burn with n faint ydlow Annie. The sides of the cavities containing gas are in all casee darkened, nnd look as though seared with a hot iron. Th»» popu lar belief of the distrii'l is that, these trees nro connected through their rooto with a subterranean .supply of natural gas, and the land on which they grow is valued ac cordingly. An examination of tin gas collected from a roticiiwnmi tree WHS mode by Professor Uush ong, of tho University of Kansas, find,it wan found t o be snbst ant ial!v the same ay natural g\s, with the addition of sonic free In drogen....

"A MTRACLE STONE." The mystery of the 11 miracle-stone,' which for centuries has been regardec with awe by the inhabitants of a re mote mountain region in the Sierra Mndros, in the western part of thi State of Chihuahua, Mexico, has beep solved. When the first explorers enter, ed that region "many years ago thej found that the Indians there wore t small piece of peculiar stone, which wai attached to a tliong around their necks. The Indians ascribed miraculous heal ing powers to the stone, and claimed that it was a euro for rheumatism and ill chronic diseases of tlie body. Scien tific men ridiculed the idea of its pos sessing any curative properties, con sidering that it was a superstitiou> idea which had been handed down from generation to generation by the lu ll. uis.

One lias heard for example, of the gentleman wh&lt; compared his political adversary to J bird of prey which had had its teetl pulled. Couuuiilor McAllen, a member o: the West Ham Town Council, went ow better than this when, seeking to sooth* some colleagues whom he hod affronted he .said, "I um~>nrry to have raisec such a flame, but I will pour oil 01 it."
