NEW IMPRESSION [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 31 January 1914

NEW IMPRESSION Some Interesting Impressions by a Canadian visiting England are given in the "Morning Post" My flrst impressions of England voire gained through a car window, he writes. Now, I knew all about - the smallness of the fields, their fresh green, the hedges, the softly rounded trees; we Britons from overseas are trained to expect these, and the Eng lish countryside Is astonishingly fa miliar to us at the first glance. But one thing did give me a start certain very large fields, brown, and bare, ready, I suppose, for their win ter snow-blanket. What struck me was partly their great size, but more the exquisite neatness and finish with which they had been ploughed and harrowed. Mine is a country of hun dred-acre farms, with fields neither so large as your larger nor so small as your smaller fields, and of a husband ry limited not so much by deficiency of knowledge as by the lack of hands. But my first real start came south of the Thames, when my train was bearing me Bournemo...

Grey donkeys, white donkeys, many small donkeys, any and every kind of donkeys, pos sessing- one attribute in common— that of a lean and hungry look. Did I say one attributed—no, there was another. They were all laden in the same way. Each had what for a bettor word I will call pan niers made of coarse sacking, or string bags, containing a fqw stones. "What is the meaning of it ?"

LONDON PROBLEM [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 31 January 1914

LONDON PROBLEM No confirmation of the report re ferred to at a meeting: of the London County Council—that a great scheme is in preparation for the amalgamation of all the electric supply companies in London—could be obtained by a "Dally News" representative who, on Novem ber 26, made inquries at tho County of London Electric Supply Company. The Bill which the company is pro moting for postponing the date at which the London County Council may purchase the electric companies has, our represntative was informed, noth ing to do with the question of amal gamation. Despite these denals, the question of the future of London's sup ply is admittedly causing increased anxiety and interest. i There are thirteen private companies and 15 local authorities producing elec-« tricity in the Council area, 'l'he total capital of the companies is about four teen mitlions, that of the local autho rities about six and a ihalf millions. In addition the borough councils are con stantly increasing the capi...

TWO WOMEN. From Mrs. M. Darcy, 163 St. Leonard's-road, Ascot Vale, Vic toria. " Some years ago, I began to suf fer from various liver and kidney troubles, arising no doubt from a severe cold I contracted about that time, and which nearly prostrated me. From thence on I experienced acute pain in the back and sides, and under the shoulder blades. The slightest pressure on the liver would cause me intense pain. I suffered like this for a long while without any prospect of relief, I having tried so many re medies without avail. As a last re source I decided to try a course of Warner's Safe Cure, which had been highly recommended to me by friends who had derived great benefit from taking the medicine. After taking a few bottles of Warner's Safe Cure my health improved rapidly, and I was soon effectually cured and free from all the pain and discomfort which has assailed me for so many " years." From Mrs. Eva Sharrer, 24 Hanover street, Windsor, Vic. " Some years ago I was taken with viole...

The Weight of an Atom. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 7 February 1914

The Weight of an Atom. Recent scientific researches have /rpfinrbntly not "only proved Llie ac tual existence of indivisible parti cles, but have actually succceiled in weighing them. This wonder ful result has been accomplished almost simultaneously by two phy sicists—Professor Perrin, of the lini versity of Paris, and. Milljkan, ' of. the' University of Chicago. Frofrs-jor Perrin arrived at the discovery by a study of the so culled Brownian movements of mi nute particles, the nature of which had not previously been unc|erstood. lie conceived the idea that the cur-:' ious dancing: and twinkling of mi nute particles seen in emulsions under a microscope are. due to the ffdhib'nrdment of the visible parti cles or atomsl By applying 'Wellfc" known laws of physics to the pro blem he was able to determine that the weight of an atom of hydrogen is such that 3,000,000 billion' bil lion atoms weigh one gram (15.4;' grains). ~ '' " uut the atom »s not uio ultimate [.article, bot- a group con...

AQINTfc, An extraordinary scene occurred at Turriff (Scotland) recently. a lead ing: farmer, who was lined for non-com pliance with the Insurance Act, de clined to pay arrears, and one of his cows was seized by the sheriff. The animal, protected by police, was brought into the town to be sold. A jeering crowd of two or three thousand farmers and others gathered and rushed the cow and its attendants out of the market-square, and the last heard of the animal was that it was on the highway making for its old home. No local auctioneer could be obtained to conduct the sale, and one was pro cured from Banff. The crowd turned their attention to him, and he was rushed along the streets to a shed ,in which he took shelter. The police guar...
