As hia letter stated, fce Waj not prepared to accept the council's offer of £230, and the question was were they prepared to grant the engineer's terms i or accept his resignation. Personally fcj | wis inclined to accept his resignation The position, to his mind, had becorna in tolerable. There was no supervision over works, no authority, and practically nu '? ne in charge of works. The contractor i fcr the street cleaning would not recog. f nhe any authority except that of th8 >. engineer, and he thought tiose condition! ' spoke for themselves. The council woulj be much better off with an engineer in :? constant supervision. Even if they had S to go higher and pay £300 for a resident ^ man, he doubted very much whether tha R expense would be much greater. Thaj hud effected a savi...

Mining Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 12 January 1917

Mining Notes. THE clean-up last week from the Maori Queen dredge resulted in 39}oz. being obtained. The statistics which have been com piled by Mr Knibbs demonstrate that in 1914 the world's output of gold was of tbe aggregate value of ^92,008,000, and of that quantity tho British Empire was responsible for no less than /55,321,000, or over 60 per cent. Moat, of ihiB latter contribution came, of course, from South Africa, the Transvaal pro duction being no less than ,£35,657.000, or nearly 38 per cent, of the world's yield. Germany cuts an insignificant figure as gold producer; indeed, she does not figure at all in the list of gold producers. The least satisfactory aspect of the gold statistics is the diminishing quantity that is produced annually by the Com monwealth. The trend is indicated by tbe official figures. The Year Book shows that wheroas in 1905 Australian miners won gold worth £15,0,55000, by 1910 the output had declined to £11,554,000, and by 1914 the aggregate had furt...

The Earth An Atom. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 12 January 1917

The Earth An Atom. All matter is supposed to consist of a number o£ molecules, and mole cules, themselves, to consist of a num ber of atoms. It is possible tliat all matter may be one in essence and that it is merely the difference in the num ber, arrangement and movement of the atoms in a molecule which causes matter to take the form of iron, gold, diamond, etc. At present, it is im possible to demonstrate absolutely these assumptions. The most power ful microscope fails to render visible the atoms of a molecule or even to disclose a molecule. Our earth may be but an atom, it, together with the other planets, revolving around the sun as a nucleus, forming a molecule of the universe, so that a being, stu pendous enough to take the whole fir mament of stars in its hands, would find the firmament present to him the same appearance which solid matter does to us. Indeed, the sun and its planets may be the archetype or mod el of all molecules with their consti tuent atoms, identical forc...

GO TO BED TO SLEEP, NOT THiNK. A celebrated physician has been writing to the papers declaring that people don't even know how to go to bed, and he proceeds to give advice. "The number of patients who come to me complaining they cannot sleep," he declares, "is growing lar ger and larger. What they want to know is how to get to sleep! Even young folk are sufferers. For years they have been ;steadily cultivating the spirit of restlessness, when they should have been cultivating sleep.

FRANCE'S GREAT REVENGE. How Germany Starved Two Million People. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 12 January 1917

FRANCE'S GREAT REVENGE. How Germany Starved Two Million People. While Germany protests to-day against the policy of "starvation" by the Allied Forces, France smiles stern ly to herself. She is having her great revenge. Forty-six years ago, on Sep tember 26, 1870, having conquered Nprthern France, the Germans sur rounded Paris and proceeded to starve two million people into submission, while they subjected the city itself to cqntinual bombardment. Here the Parisians showed their un conquerable courage and the devotion to, "La Patrie." They were forced to feed on rats, to have their children crying for bread, to see their loved ones die, and yet they refused to give in, and while they endured terrible pangs of hunger, the heroic soldiers made vain attempts to break through the enemy's iron ring. At last, famished, Paris surrendered after five and a half months of siege, and peace was signed on January 2D, 1871, by which France v.-as deprived of Alsace-Lorraine, and had to pay an indem...

WHY WE HAVE TWO BRAINS. Some Queer Psychological Facts. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 12 January 1917

WHY W,E HAVE TWO BRAINS. Some Queer Psychological Facts. Nature, according to a new theory, lias given us two brains, just as she lias given us a pair of eyes, hands, and ears, which help each other to do the work of the body. Everyone has two brains, but he only uses one for intellectual purposes. If a man is right-handed he uses the left brain. The left-handed one uses the right brain. "Which brain we are going to use is therefore decided by which hand we make use of first when we are babies. The brain which is not being used for the intellect helps the other to min. ister to the body. It also serves as an emergency brain in case of disease or accident. Sometimes memory or speech is destroyed by accident, and if the second brain is trained it may do the work of the other which has been de stroyed. It is easier to train the brain In this way if the patient is under 30 years of age. "The Scientific American," in malt ing an announcement of an increase in price of its subscription, r...
