BANK NOTES GIVEN AWAY. STRANGER ENTERS GLASGOW LODGING HOUSE AND DISTRIBUTES £40. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 20 December 1910
BANK NOTES GIVEN AWAY. ? ♦ ? STRANGER ENTERS GLASGOW LODGING HOUSE AND DIS TRIBUTES X40. There has been an excited scram ble for banknotes at Glasgow. Entering a model lodging-house a well-dressed stranger ' addressed a crowd of men in the common wait ing-room, asking if he could do them any good. 'Certainly.' replied one of fcbem. Thereupon the visitor took a roll of £1 banknotes from his pocket and began distributing them. There was an immediate rush for the man and a; struggle to get the notes, and in a short time forty were distributed. ,Then..the. philanthropist, abruptly disappeared, leaving the men ex citedly examining -the notes to see if they were genuine? The men soon rushed out to cash the notes; and the Surprised proprie tor of the lodging-house sent for the police. ' A -detective was sent, but arrived after the- mysterious bene factor had gone. The: detective secured one of the notes; which were all found to be genuine. 1
HOW HEELS ORIGINATED. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 20 December 1910
HOVif HEELS ORIGINATED. Hfeels originally came from Persia, where they were used in the shape of small wooden blocks which the peo ple fastened below their sandals, in order to keep their feet as high above the level of the burning sands as possible. At first they were only 4 ranf.imnt.rM liiirli for men and wo men alike. Soon, however, the ladies favoured fabulous sizes, reaching up to as much as 36 centimetres. A, few years later on these heels were) brought to Venice, where they be came the fashion; they were called 'chapineys,' and were ornamented and decorated in every.', possible style and shape that cobblers could dream of. The height of the ' 'chapi neys' showed the rank of the wearer, and finally they attained such dimen sions that many fashionable ladies were quite unable to walk.
HAIR AS MANURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 20 December 1910
HAIR AS MANURE. Hair spread upon meadows is said to benefit the crop three-fold, and we read that the Chinese are so well aware of this fact and of the benefit of that manure that they collect the hair every time they have their heads shaved, and this operation as a rule is performed once every fortnight, and tney sen it to the farmers. Every individ ual leaves at least half a pound of hair at the haircutters every year. Therefore, from 13,000,000, the number of individuals who in Great Britain and Ireland are regularly undergoing the ..process of shaving arid haircutting, we have a produc tion of about 3000 tons of hair, that is manure of the most valuable kind, equal at least tp 150,000 tons of or dinary farm manure, which might be collected almost without trouble.
AN ANCIENT MINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 20 December 1910
AN ANCIENT MINE. The Kopparberg Mining Com pany of Sweden, was founded in 1225 A.D. According to the old, account books and other interesting documents, which arts religiously kept in the old .museum attached to the/mine at Falun, the (Great Copper Mountain Mine has yielded about 500,000 tons ot copper, 15 tons of silver, 1.25 tons of gold, valued at £55,555,000. There are Only one or two copper nimes in the world which have beep so produc tive.' : As great quantities of cop per were used in Sweden : in the Bronze Age, it is. not improbable -that this* mine was worked ' then. If this -be so, then it must be about 2000 : years old. - The total length of the mine at the surface, which , resembles' the crater - of an extinct 1 volcano, it 1200ft., whilst its under- 1 ground galleries, excavations, and Chambers have a length- of eighteen English miles. It is as well to 1 take a guide when descending this | subterranean labyrinth of ancient '-'passages and. chambers, some of which are ve...
THE ROYAL TOUCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 20 December 1910
'TH ifjjOYAL TOUCH . Vj' The practice of healing by touch can be traced back to a very early period. It was a survival of a rite performed by priest-physicians - of ancient Egypt and. Babylonia, and later 'Pyrrhus and Vespasian cured disease by touch. It probably took its rise in , the ancient belief, that certain individuals were born with superior powers to, those possessed by their fellow-creatures. Mon archs \vere exalted above others on acount of the supposed, distinc tive excellence imparted to them at their birth by the ruling signs and planets. It was but natural, there, fore, that their subjects believed them capable of imparting this in fluence by a -glance of the . eye or a touch of the hand. To touch eyen their robes WQiysometimes thoi' k sufficient to receive a share of/ -ir special virtues. Thus, arose/ /be lief in the healing powers imparted by 'a touch of the Royal hand of the Lord's annointed, a superstition deeply rooted in the human mind.
Science Notes & News. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 20 December 1910
Science Notes & Nevs. — ? ? A remarkable property in the leaves of plants has been brought to the notice of the botanists by Professor Wager. He has shown that the outer layer of many leaves is so constructed that the rays of light are brought to a focus_ in the interior of the leaf, and that in fact the cells behave as convex lenses. The nut-trees of the world coulcl, it is calculated, provide food all the year round for the population of the globe. Brazil-nuts grow in such profusion that thousands of tons of ihem are wasted every year. Coral reefs and islands are form ed by the coral-building polyp. This animal lives only in clear water, the depth of which is not greater than about :wenty-five fathoms, and the temperature of which does not sink below sixty-eight degrees Fahren heit.
FOR SHIP'S HULLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 20 December 1910
FOR SHIP'S HULLS. ! Glass-plating is the novel method by which two inventors hope to pre vent the fouling of ship's hulls, even in tropical waters. The glass, in sections about six inches square, is applied direct to the bare ' metal with a special cement ot wood pulp, resin, and linseed oil, and a layer of this an eighth of an inch thick, not only holds the glass very firmly, but compensates for the difference of ex pansion between the metal and the glass. Painting is unnecessary. The glass is claimed to make it im possible for any growths to secure a hold, and it remains firmly adher ent, even when cracked with a ham mer.

the 'Minister of Defence, It I'.- Recognised that what- j ?n'.r tin'- 'iefi'1i-:-ti',i..s of an-' i\f the other Ministers. Senator Pearce,. the ^'iilister for Defence, is the right Man in the right place. His states manlike speech at Perth, welcoming, the Australian destroyer?, has been a'claimed fur and wide. There was not. in the first place, any truce of a desire to make jnlit.cal capital out of the defence policy of the country ; lie disdained any attempt to split straws as to what part}' deserved credit and in what measure for the defence schemes, which it has become his duty to carry through. Indeed, Senator Penrce made a pleasant refer ence to the leader of the Opposition at the outset' of his remarks. What he had to say about the need of pre paration for war was pertinent and well put. Arbitration as a substitute for war's barbarities is well euovigh in theory, but theie are issues, vital to the national well-being ou which no country cnti arbitrate. Senator Pearce named the...

HOW HE LOST IT. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 20 December 1910
HOW HE LOST IT. The story of Mr. Briggs and the key which he wanted to lose, sounds like a true story, except in the un natural persistence of the key in not allowing '^elf to get lost. The key in question,' savs a writer in the Phil adelphia 'Ledger,' was a' long-shank- ' ed affair which Mr. B.-'^o-s had had no v— use for since he left Butte, Montana; ~ three years before. As the house, the front door of which it fitted, had been torn down, there seemed no rea son for keeping the key on his ring So he took it off, and tossed it into the waste-basket, closed his desk, and went home from the office. The next morning he found the key. inside his desk, apparently slipped through the mail slit by the woman who cleans, the offices. Mr. Briggs threw it into the bask et again. The following morning it was once more on his desk. He looked out of the window — and then remembered that his lease for bade casting things out. Also, he reflected that a key that size dropped from the twentieth flo...
