Your Eyes are Like a Japs. WHY THEY LOOK DIFFERENT. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 25 February 1914
Your Eyes are Like a Japs. lWHY THEY LOOK DI-FFEIRNT. We call the Japinese "almond eyed" and the Chinese *slit-eyed," and rnost of us are apt to snppoue that their eyes ore of entirely Iii ferent shape frontm our own. But such is not the case. The eyes of all the races are practically alike in shape, their dilTerence in appear ance being due solely to n dilTcer ence in the opening of the lids. Atongig the Caucnsians - when .the, eyelids are drawnn open tile o,liter and inner ends of the lids form a straight, horizontal line. The lids open wide without any special ef fort, presenting tihe effect of the full Among the Chinese and tither Mongolians the lids dn not open so far, und on this icrount they are often spoken of as "'slit-pyed." Al 'so the line froit the inner to the outer corner of their eyes is not perfectly Iorizotntal. the outier end being slightly highler than the in ner corner, thus giving the effect of what is t-erniell the "almnond eye." In the Caluiasian ere the end o...

Ancient Thermometers. 'I he earliest thermo meters were of the expansion" type. antd were lduo to the exertions arnd research Of (alilea. They consisted of a glass hlth with a capillary tube attach edt. the lull> bCeisg filled with alc4 hol, which expanded ' with tvmn pcerature. the expansion being ,indi cated by the movement of the nico hol up or down the capillary. The scale on the thermometer was pure ly' an rlhitrary one. and it was% not ,until flooke, in 1681. sug gested the uielting-point of ice and the, Iailing point of water that a.ny ntteinlpt was made to obtain a. faintladnental scale of temperature.

Declined Without Thanks. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 25 February 1914
Declined Without Thanks. The well-intentioned man overheard two women talklnt together In a tramear, and he immediately let down the portals of his ears, for the well intentioned man always goes about with a life-long hunger in his heart to insert himself into the affairs of other people. "I tell you he is a perfect tyrant," said woman number one. "I have no tdoubt of it," said the oth er. "I will listen to this poor woman's tale," thought the well-intentioned man, "and perhaps I may be able to assist the poor soul.'" "Yes; he is a regular tyrant ani despot. He has no mercy on me what ever. He rules the whole house like a Czar." '"Of course he does," said woman number two. "I shall have to offer my services to this poor, dolwn-trodden woman," thought the well-intentioned man. "Yes; he rldes over the whole of us roughshod. And sometimes, when he gets on the rampage, he breaks every thing he can lay his hands on." "Madam," said the well-intentioned man, who could stand it no longer "m...

"GO I MUST" CALL OF THE ANTARCTIC. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 25 February 1914
"fiO I MOI~ST" CALL OP TUE ANTARCTIC. (By Sir Ernest Shackieten. in "'The Daily Mail,") "Yonder the tan,' horizon lies Andi there. byi night and day, The oldl ships draw to port again. And the young ships sail away; And come I may, hat go I moat. And if men ask me why, You· can lay the blame on the sun and slars, And the white road and the sky." I have often been asked, what valn one see in lbs cold, inhospitable regiloces at thle Antarctic? And, confronted vy a held question such as that, it is hard to give an anowrer.

V.R.C. AUTUMN MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 25 February 1914
V.R.C. AUTUMN MEETING. Now that we have arrived at the season of "fair autumnal skles, when earth's ripe treasures meet admiring eyes," there is a short truce in the never-ending friendly struggle between nature and man so far as rural indus tries are concerned. Work on the farm and station, though never at a stand still, yet affords a breathing space, and the annual pay-day, so far as rural producers are concerned, having ar rived, a longing eye is turned towards the metropolis. So as to allow that happy comeination between business and pleasure which justifies a little un usal expenditure, the V.R.C. comes forward with its usual autumn pro grnamme full of rich things for race horse owners and the public alike. Country visitors and town residents alike can, during that first week In March, throw care to the winds and forget for a while that there are such things as ever-wrangling Parliaments, industrial disputes, or any other of the thousand and one troubles that go to mar the peac...
ETIQUETTE ON TOUR [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 25 February 1914
ETIQUETTE ON TOUR An interesting point in theatrical eti quette 'was decided in Weestmlnater County Court yesterday (says "The Dailly News."

PUNISHED BY KAISER MIILITARY DESPOTS LOSE POSTS The Kaiser to-day had a long con forence at Donaueschlngen with the MIinister of VWar and the chief of his military cabinet, at which it is stated (says the Berlin correspondent of "The Daily Express.'"

AFRICAN KING DEAD [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 25 February 1914
AFRICAN KING DEAD Tt may be asumed with some confi dence that the persistent rumors of Menelek's death which have been citr culated periodically since his para-ytlc selzure in 1908 are, on this occasion. well founded, says T'The Times." The extent of the changeu in Abyssinian and North-East African polities involved by his death cannot yet be appraised. Mlenelek has been dead to the outer world and possibly even to Abyssinia for some years. His stripling grand son and heir. Lldj Yasou, is little known, and has still to prove his ability to cope with the pcular p:ob lems of Abyssinian statecraft. During lienelek's reign of 20years the extremely primitive civllisaotion of Abyssinia has been overlaid with a WVestern veneer, though it has not lost its original characteristics. The coun try has telegraphs and telephones. and a railway, which stops short at a point near Harrar. It has a limited but In creasing trade In rhich India sh:.ree.

As sured at least of his disappearance In somo way from this world, they sold first his property and then his house. When the purchaser of his house was about to stock his wine tcllar, he descended with a light to survey the extent of Its accommoda tion.

PLEASE VIVISECT US! [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 25 February 1914
PLEASE VIVISECT USI ) In view of the somewhat belated ags ) tatton which sprung up against the statue of the vivisected brown dog of Dattersea, it is curious to note that plenty of people have offered them selves to be vivisected, for aconsider ation, within the last few years. Only last month, for Instance, a New York man suffered his finger to ue amputated for a paltry £50; while a few weeks ago two young girls allowed themselves to be partially flayed for a skin-graftieg operation, the fee paid to each by the beneficiare being £100. In another recent case, quoted by the French medical press, a young nan of the artisan class actually sold his nose to a wealthy merchant who had lost his through an accident He had to submit to have his face par tially grafted on to the face of the other subject of the experiment, and both of them had to remain fixed in this extremely uncomfortable position rigid and immobile, for over two months Under those circumstances. the sum received by the los...
