WHAT PEOPLE DO. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 23 January 1914
WHAT PEOPLE DO. - By Walt Mason. "I used to insist that this is the best of all possible worlds," remarked the druggist, "but the more I read the newspapers the more I fina that be lief slipping. There is so much ingra titude in the world that a man can't shake a stick at it. I was reading a hideous story in the newspaper this morning. "An old woman in a small Wisconsin town was taken to the poorhouse the other day, and the journey broke her heart. In her better days, when she was able to work and earn money, that woman made a business of adopting children and giving them a chance in life. She reared three girls, and all of them married well and live in comfort able homes at this hour And not one of the three would lift a finger to keep the old woman from the poorhouse. Such a story as that makes a man won der whether human nature isn't a rem nant counter affair." "Before a man makes up his mind to condemn the human race because of such a story," said the village patri arch, "he sho...
THE INDUSTRIOUS MOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 23 January 1914
THE INDUSTRIOUS MOUSE. Many years ago a studious Scotsman named. David Hutton proved that, stores of the profitable energy were go ing to waste among those tiny but active folk, the ordinary domestic mice. In the summer of 1812 I had occa sion (he wrote) to be in Perth. While inspecting the toys and trinkets that were manufactured by the French pris oners in the depot there, my attention was attracted by a little toy house with a wheel in the gable that was running rapidly round, impelled by the activ ity of a common mouse- For one shil ling I purchased the house, the mouse and the wheel. But how to apply half-ounce power, which is the weight of a mouse, to a useful purpose was the difficulty. At length the manufacture of sewing thread seemed the most practicable. The investigator found that an ordin ary mouse would run on the average ten and a-half miles a day; he had one mouse that ran the remarkable distance of eighteen miles in that time. A half penny's worth of oatmeal was suff...

HISTORY OF THE SAW. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 23 January 1914
HISTORY OF THE SAW. The earlest tool that has been traced in Egyptian history is the saw. It was found first in the form of a notched bronze knife in the third dynasty, or about five thousand years before the Christian era, and was followed in the fourth, and fifth dynasties by large toothed saws, which were used by car penters; but there are no dated speci mens until the. sventh century.-tefoi ._he_ ritinahera, wh?lT h~ Assyrians used iron saws. The first knives on record were made out of flint, and were, in fact, saws with minute teeth. They probably were used for cutting up animals, as the teeth would break away even on soft wood. Rasps, which are but a form of saw, were first made of sheets of bronze punched and colled round, but the Assyrians in the sev enth century used the straight rasp made of iron aimllar to the modern type.
