CUPS OF COFFEE VAI-UK AS STIMULANT in a recent issue or the 4 lancet it Is pointed out that hitherto such analyses of coffee as have from time to time been made aud published : have referred to an examination of i the entire coffee berry, and not to the infusion as it readies the con sumer. | The results are now set forth of an investigation into the composition ; of the infusion to bo drunk, the chemistry of the "grounds" having* I been left out of consideration. In I drawing a comparison between coffee \ and tea the results show that while 1 the alkaloid caffeine In coffee is Identical with that in tea, yet its as sociations In coffee are different. In tea infusions the alkaloid occurs chlelly aa a tannate, which Is a com pound insoluble in the acid juices of the stomach. In coffee it occurs in an ' easily soluble compound.

TORN TOGS MENDED-WITHOUT SEWING. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 7 February 1914
TORN TOGS MENDED— WITHOUT SEWING. When ivo aro taking a brisk cross country walk our pleasure is sometimes marred by a nasty throe-cornored tear in our dress or suit. Hero is a simple and efficacious way of repairing tho damaged cloth. Go to tho nearest farmhouse or cot tage and buy an egg. Placo tho cloth flat on tho tablo and smear a littlo whito of tlio egg nil around and over tho tear, on tho reverse sido. Now cut a pieco of linen (a handkerchief will do) a little larger than tho tear and place it over the rent So that it ad heres to tho white of ogg. Then get a hot iron and simply press it, without ironing, over tho linen. The linen will adhere firmly to the cloth and will not come off even if wash ed. The rent in tho material will now bo almost invisible on the outside, and tho monding will last as long as tho dress or suit.
COLD MAKES THE HAIR GROW. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 7 February 1914
COLD MAKES THE HAIR GROW. It is a curious fact that a low tem perature is tho best possible tonic for I the hair. No explorer has ever come . homo from tho Arctic or Antarctic without a thick thatch. Sir Ernest Shackleton has drawn public attention to tho fact that several of tho men who accompanied him to tho South started with thin and scanty hair and returned liko testimonials of patent hair tonics. Ho attributed tho result to tho lack of gonns in frozen regions, a lack which also explains why explorors in tho Arc tic or Antarctic do not catch colds. Precisely the samo effect has been no ticed among men whoso work lies in cold storago rooms. Tho air they work in is always below freezing point, and a di rector of a, cold-storage firm recently announced that, from what ho has seon among his ompioyes, it would scarcely bo an exaggeration to say that a freez ing temperature will mako an egg sprout liko a shaving brush. Men af flicted with early baldness grow a nor mal crop of hair af...

MOTH BEATS MAN Ingenuity in insects has never been more remarkably Illustrated than in a discovery Just made b'y an entomologi cal expert at Histon, in Cambridge shire (saya "The Daily Express")...

Hitherto fruitgrowers have in Sep tember placed round each fruit tree a band covered with a sticky substance, and when tho femalo moth, climbing up tho trunk, comes to tho band, she Is held fast by the sticky substance. Recently, however, tho femalo moth hag been found from time to timo above the band, and tho mystery, has been how plie could havo got thero.
