Why We Are Right-Handed. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 24 April 1908
Why Wo Are Righl-Hancled. Primitive man, by nature and neces sity a fighting animal, IcarnccMn the course of his experience that his most vulnerable part was the heart; that a hard blow on the left breast would kill, or at any rate stun, the strongest man. Hence at a Very oarly period in hu man history mon began using the right hand to fight with, while they employed the left hand and arm chiefly t.o cover the heart or to parry tlio blows aimod at that vulnerable region. When weapons of ofTonce and defonco took the nlaco of fists and teeth, the right hand grasped tho spear or sword, while tho left held tho shiold or buck ler over tho heart. In this way, be yond a doubt, mankind became ''right handed." (A wag who thought to have a/joke at tho cxponsG of an Irinh provision dealer said : "Can you stjpply mo with a yard of pprkPn "John," said the dealer to liis 'assistant, "give this gentleman three pigs' feet."

IF WOMEN PROPOSED. THE INFLUENCE ON SOCIAL CONDITIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 24 April 1908
IF WOMEN PROPOSED. THE INFLUENCE ON SOCIAL CONDITIONS. "If marriage was proposed by wo men instead of men wo should bo far along the road to a/regenerate society." So says Dr. Donslow Lewis. Tho offices that this gentleman holds and the honours attached to his name almost compel one to conclude that he is a man competent to. comprehend tho subject in all its oxtent. Still, ono re grets that ho has not takeii the trouble to oxplain how tho woman's proposal is to operate so as to produce the regent oration promised. The reason seems to bo obvious. No visible connection, or relation, subsists between a woman's proposal of mar riage and tho regeneration of society. But, notwithstanding tin's lack of logi cal connection of ideas in the state ment, it is not altogether worthless. On the contrary, it has a solid value*. In this it throws tho reader back on himself to search for a foundation on which society may hope for regenera tion. And hero tho Doctor comes to our aid. ''When a married ...

Why is tho j Pope like an old goose?" I "Madnm!" cried tho shocked priest. I "How can you put so sacriligious a question to mo ?" "Never mind your cloth," said .Mrs. Phillips; "be a man for a moment; not an Archbishop." It was impossible to be angry with her, us tho Archbishop know, so he hit his lips to hide a smile, and with duo gravity requestod tho answor. "Bncauso ho sticks to his own propa ganda," was tho prompt reply.

Until recently it was' believed that theso millions of groy colls, thought, but Professor Syitzko points, out that if thoy woro tho thought cen tre, the .elephant and many of tho animals would bo much cleverer than tho^ smartest man. This used to bo ox plained by saying that it was tho quality of man's grey matter which, nermittod him to think. A genius has usually more grey matter than the. avorago person, but this is not what, makes him a gonitis . It merely means, that, boing a genius, ho 'has stored, away an abnormal amount of facts.

Keeping Poultry Healhty. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 24 April 1908
Keeping Poultry Hoalhty. In order to carry poultry successfully through the winter the houses must be kept dry and clean. Provision for this should be rarido while dry. earth can bo obtained. A good j>lan is to clean out the house and every 'nest in it thoroughly. Then get in a quantity of perfectly dry, sandy eartli and spread it evenly over the floor to a depth of eight inches or more, and put some into the bottom of every nest box. This plan will work well whether the floor of the house is of earth'or plank. It is probable that vermin and damp ness cause more loss and disease among fowls than all other troubles put to-^ gether. The dry, sandy earth will* counteract the dampness and discour age vermin for many months if proper ly managed. In cleaning out the houses after you have put in tho sand or earth.it will only bo necessary .to scrape off tho droppings lightly with a fine rake, every few days, and you will have no difficulty in keeping clean poultry houses, while tho heal...
