HOW THE HEART BEATS AT NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Corryong Courier — 16 April 1914
HOW THE HEART BEATS AT NIGHT. The main use of the coverings at night is (o give the body the warmth that Is lost by reduced circulation ol the biooii. When the body lies down it Is the intention of Nature that it should rest, and that the heart es pecially should be relieved tempor arily of its regular work. So that organ makes ten strokes a minute less than v.-hon the body is in nn upright Dosture. This means COO strokes it e:ity minutes. Therefore, in tHe eigh! hours that a man usually spends iz taking his night's rest, the heart is saved nearly 5000 strokes. As i' pumps Gor.. of blood with each stro'w It lifts oO.OOOoz. less of blood in the night's session than it would durinc the day, when a man is usually in ar upright positinp. Now, the body is do pendent for its warmth on the vi-'o; of the circulation, a:ul as the blonc flows so much more slowly througi the veins when one is lying down, the warmth lost in the reduced cireulaHor must be supplied by extra coverings Guest (in ch...

FAIR EXPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Corryong Courier — 23 April 1914
FAIR EXPORTS. A story is going the rounds of the French newspapers concerning Prince Nicholas of Montenegro, which, to think, we havo rend before. A jour nalist received in audience by the Priuce, went into ecstatsies over the beauty of the country and the Bibli cal simplicity of the people. But he was disappointed that the country was so poor that there was nothing for exportation. "You will find, in deed, sir." said the Prince, "that we havo some charming experts." "What can they be, your Highness?" asked ilie journalist, puzzled. ".My daugh ters," replied the Prince, laughing. Princess Helene. one of the daughters of Prince Nicholas, is Queen of Italy. Her sister. Princess Militza. married the Grand Duke Peter of Russia. An other sister, the Princess "orlca, tvotild, but for her untimely death, bo to-day the Queen of Servia.

THE WONDERFUL 1000-DAY CLOCK. The new electric clock which was. ■ submitted recently to the King by Mr. Sigisinund Kutnow is, iike most suc cessful inventions, very simple. • Though it never needs winding, runs without attention for over a thou sand days, will ho upside down, and is undisturbed by vi'ur.ition, there are barely half a dozen wheels in its me chanism. A single dry-cell battery, purchase able anywhere for a few pence, is fix ed underneath or .it the back of the. clock. Prom (his one of the wires is connected to the plate of iron which runs horizontally ai the base of the clock. Above this metal plate hangs a, large wheel, constructed like the bal ance wheel of a watch, which just clears the plate as it rotates. At the. back is a spring similar to the hair or oscillating spring of a watch. • This wheel has a small magnet run ning through its centre, which is mag netised on the connection of the elec-. trie current, and pulls its end on the. surface of the wheel round tow...
WINE THAT SPOILS WITH AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Corryong Courier — 23 April 1914
WINE THAT SPOILS WITH AISE. That vintages often deteriorate with, igo Is the not result of a wine test ui;>per where t:m men brought to the. investigation bottles encrusted deep with cobwebs and covered with the Just of time. Connoisseurs are so concerned over the report of this committee on liba tion that there is to be an overhauling of Ions sacred bins, and many a ven erable ilagon will have to meet the fm u! arbitrament of the corkscrew. If the wine be good thoy who own it wi!J c;ijoy its aroma while they may; if not, it goes to outer darkness or to vinegar. Other tests are in prospect, and after this the juice of the grape of whatever year must find raverenco not for pedigree, but for bouquet nlonc. The hopes of some of the company were cruelly blasted, for, of the fif teen specimens only four received tho unqualified approval of an exacting Jury. The unimpeachable group in cluded brandies and .Madeiras, which, with the sherries and the white wines, proved to be satisfactory...
