A good warm fabric for dress ing- gowns is ripple-clotli . but per haps jrou would find this too heavy. In Lthat case nuns-veiling would be charmingly dainty.

Following the lead given by Iho United States, a large number of people gathered at the- .Whitehall Rooms to express their approval ot a Bill .intended. to prohibit, the im portation into the United "Kingdom, of the skins and plumes of certain birds. Sir Harry Johnson, the famous traveller, who presided, said' if there were no insects, ticks, molluscs, ? or worms, two-thirds of the world's diseases would come to an end, and for the limitation of these pests there was no agency so potent as birds.

MTSTAKEN IBENT1TY. A story is told of a log-roller who, while working 011 a log drive, fell into the water. He .struggled for n while, ntul at last, dizzy and nearly exhausted, managed to grasp a big log and hold on to ii.

"Save the chap that's in head first, if you can." Two American farmers met a day or two after a cyclone had swept over their farms.

Bridge Building on a Large Scale. -5 NEW STRUCTURE ACROSS THE MISSISSIPPI AT MEMPHIS. FOR USE OF RAILROAD. IMMENSE STONE PIERS ARE SUNK TO DEPTH OF 100 FEET BELOW SURFACE OF WATER. The popular conception of what supports a great bridge like the one being bult by the Bock Island lines across the Mississippi River at Memphis, ia rather hazy. The person who crosses a bridge on a train does not see the. mas sive stone piers which rise from the water, JDven if he did see the piers he. would still have little idea, as to what it all means. Perhaps he imagines that the piers go down through tho. water to the bottom of the river, where, by some mira culous means, they find a firm foundation.- He little idealises that what lie sees towering out of Hhe water ' is only a small fraction of the pier and that its foundation, is one hundred feet " below the surfacc resting on the strong bed stratum which underlies Memphis. Each of the big stone piers when complete will-support thousands of tons of...

Camphor-Petrol for Motorists. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 13 March 1914

Camphor-Petrol for Motorists. Abroad, where great pride-and just pride-is taken in the mileage per gallon of fuel that ? can he obtained, a small bancl of motorists recently has 'been ex perimenting with gum r camphor as a "dope" for petrol. " Usually, about one ounce of' camphor is placed in five gallons of petrol, and It is stated by those who \ise the mixture that the operation of their motors is much superior : with the camphor in the petrol than . without it. One motorist even goes so far as to claim <that he has been able to increase his mileage per gallon as much as 20 per. cent., though it would seem . that the increase cannot be due to the use" of the camphor alone. The idea is not new, of course, for Curtiss, at present of aeroplane fame; , used it a number of years ago in his racing .^motor cycles, and it is said he sometimes uses it now in his aeroplane en gines. :r \ ' : The modern dairy farmer has dis carded the old-fashioned milk pail, and" uses a closod in...
