What Binks Learned. 4 — - Voting Cfcoro "UihKs was an eru dite youth, and a regular demon for knowledge forsooth. At his studies he "swotted" to tell you the truth, for eight or ten hours every day. To give you some little idea of his worth, he knew to a frac tion the ago of the earth, the ac tual weight of the moon nnd its girth, and how* far all tho stars were away. He rould tell you the reason why eggs arc not meat, why toadstools and hedgehogs aro not good, to eat, also why there can never i.e cold without heat, and why humlde-hoea don't, make honey.

Romance of London Water [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 19 February 1914

Romance of London Water T It is just three centurics ago that the water of the Now lUvcr was turned into the company's reservoir at Clerkenwell. The four years' la i hour, backed by the enterprise and faith of Sir Hugh Myddi'lton, brought water to London through wooden pipes and to Londoners' houses by small leaden pipes. But like many great inventors, ho was almost ruined in carrying out his idea, and never gainod a farthing from the New Jliver Company* which paid no -dividend during his life time. it is the fate of the nrtist whose picture, given in payment of a tavern bill, is priced at thou sands after his death. Myddelton, if ho still notes mundane matters, must be glad that his company promotion ended in usefulness and profit. A single £5 original share in the New River Company would bring its owner to-day a fortune of something like £100,000 I

Church Sold for 16s. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 19 February 1914

Church Sold for 16s. | Anybody Who hits the occasion or ! leisure to travel in the French pro vinces, and the? • curiosity to iu~ [quire, must often be astonished -at the number of deserted ccclesiasti i cnl buildings and the absurdly low ! prices asked for them, since the liquidation of church property. All | records seem, however, to lmve been beaten by the sale of one of the , oldest churches in Trance, at Clare , fontaine, in the Seine et-Oise de partment, for exactly sixteen shill | ings and ninepence halfpenny. Twelve years ago the church threat ened tv> fall to pieces, aiul the richer inhabitants privately subscribed for ; and built a new church, to which they took the doors, windows, and memorial tablets, including one over the porch, stating that the church was built in the year 1100 " To the honour of C»od and Our Lady, by Simon Count de Montfort, son of Amulry I., who was son of King Robert." When all these had been taken away there was little left-but the walls, and t...

Picking Pockets. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 19 February 1914

Picking Pockets. The Bishop of Worcester tuld a capital story the other day in con nection with the efforts of the Church in that part of the country Id alleviate the lot of the hoppers. One of ti«e workers who luul gone down to the hop-fields to assist met a dilapidated individual in a coun try land, who, in response to a question, said he was a picker. This did not convey much to the inquirer and he pursued the subject-. The hop-picker readily responded. He said : "In the summer months I picks peas and fruit ; then when autumn comes round I picks hops, and in the winter, when the wea ther's dull, 1 picks pockets. Then, when I'm caught I. picks oakum. I'm kept nire and warm during the I mid months, and then, when thi I nice days come round again, 1 start pea-picking:, ami so on afresh."

Nothing Venture, Nothing Have. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 19 February 1914

"Nothing Venture, Noth ing Have." Tiiis is a favourite motto of the 3I.P. for Batiersea, and he has half a hundred stories to quote ir its favour. Once upon a time, he was conducting a huge demonstra J lion in Hyde Park, and was him self going round with the hat. A detachment of the Guards had bcor. sent down to keep order, and, prompted as much by a .spirit ol mischief as anything else, .lohn Burns marched up to the officer in charge, and held out his hat. The officer put up an eyeglass, and stared from the hat to John, and back again. Jolm stared no less j steadily* at him, chinking the hat suggestively. "Are you in ear nest ?" demanded the captain. " I am." "Will this go to the women and children V" went on the officer. "Jt will," was the brief reply. The glass dropped from the officer's eye, and half a sovereign dropped into the hat at the same moment, i

What Rheumatism is, and How You Can Avoid it. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 19 February 1914

What Rheumatism is, and How You Can Avoid it. (fly Will. LEE HOWARD, M.D.) I You may stand all day in cold streams or upon rocks washed by the ocean tides, awl wot got rk&u mr.ti.sm. Yon may cat red flesh and spiced food, yet. be free from gout or rheumatic affections. Tramping in the rain or sleeping* oil damp ground will not give you inflamed joints or cripple your muscle*. All these statements are true of the man or woman who is in per fect health. What 1 mean by per fect health is that state of body and organs where all food taken is properly distributed nnd the proper amounts of by-products are daily eliminated. This means that the skin must lie in good working order so that free perspiration, conscious and unconscious, will pass the body poisons oft' through the pores ; that ihe liver must be in such a healthy stale that every cell does its work in separating thej good from the bad in the blood ; that i the kidneys must be in the same con | dilion. and that the lungs a...

A Four-mile Tunnel. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 19 February 1914

A Four-mile Tunnel. 1 The Mont d'Or tunnel between Franco and Switzerland, on Which boring operations began nearly three years ago, was pierced a few days ago. At half-past seven in the evening the two boring gangs which had been advancing from the Swiss the French sides met ami shook hands, and it was found that the engineers had calculated the cutting with the greatest* accuracy. The tunnel, which is oj miles long, bores through the. Jura mountains from Frasne to Vallorbe, thus ob i yiating an eleven-mile detour by Pontarlier, and should have been pierced Uvo months ago. The work, | however, was delayed by the tap ping of a number of unsuspected I springs which had been pumped dry. | The outrush of water at onetime [reached 2,200 gallons a second. It | is hoped to open the new line early next year. The line, by shortening I the journey from 1'nris to Lausanne, |-.will bring the winter resorts of the i Jura. mountains many hours nearer I London.
