LIFE SAVING AT SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 15 October 1914

LIFE SAVING AT SEA. All the fishermen of the East Coast of England know quite well that when once tl.ey lose touch of their boats their boots will pull them down End they will be drowned. "A bro ken boat means nine dead men." That is the common tale of the Whit by fishermen, and they know a good deal about it. The finest swimmer in the world would have no chance of life if he had the ordinary equipment of a fisherman' on him. That is the way that the working men face the northern sea from Grimshy to Iceland. . Yet each one could be protected with the most consummate case if he had close at hand a life-saving jacket Cork is not much good, and life-belts are apt to turn you upside down. The Board of Trade has now recog nised this, and has accepted the Boddy lifc-eaving jacket, a levitating collar and chest and back protector that keeps man, woman, or child in such a position when dropped into the sea that they will never drown. Possibly, if everyone on the Ti tanic could have' slipped...

TIMING THE ACTION OF THE HEART. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 15 October 1914

TIMING THE ACTION OF THE HEART. At a meeting of the Court of Gov ernors, of the London Hospital a few days ago it was stated that the_heart department had been placed under ground, owing to the fact that the slightest vibration would affect the extremely delicate instruments used in recording heart-beats. By certain of these instruments various forms of heart disease ~ had been diagnosed long before they could have teen heard by the stetho scope. When the heart beats, it has been found that it gives off minute elec tric currents, and by proper arrange ments these currents are made to cause a fine hair of glass, coated with silver, to vibrate. These vibrations are made to take, place in front of a lens, behind which is a powerful arc lamp, and to throw a shadow on to a sensitised film. When this film is developed, a tracing is obtained caused by the shadow of the hair, and from this shadow valuable inferences can be drawn. The apparatus,, is-connected by wires to some of the beds in ...

Mount Best. Tho first of scries of plain and fancy dress balls was held in the hull on Friilay night last. The weather was ideal, and considering that the roads at tho present time aro in thoir summer condition, every inducement was thus held out to woniil bo patrons of tho light fantastic. A good number put in an appearance and Mr K. Walters as M.O. kept tilings going merri ly until tho proverbial " wee sma' oors." First class music was provided by Miss Henwood (piano), and Messrs Twite and Or, Lay (violin). It is intended to hold these dances onco a month all pro fits derived to be sent to the patriotic fund. Dairying is now Rotting into full swing and grass is plentiful, consequently cows arc milking hoavy. Dairymen, however, aro apprehensive regarding the future, as the rainfall eo far has been fur too light and unloss rain soon falls grass will seed too early.

LIFE'S RECOMPENSE. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 15 October 1914

LIFE'S RECOMPENSE. When our hearts are oppressed by the troubles of life | There is ever some joy to be found But we gaze on the brambleu and grieve o'er the thorns When the roses are glowing around. O, the world is a sordid and joyless abode If our hearts have no time to be gay, If we see not the visions of laughter I' and love That, illumine the commonplace way. In the struggle for fame and the passion for Hold, Many dwell in the .shadow of strife, Seeing naught of the glorious sun beams of hope That, are bright with the lustre of life. They are dreaming of sorrow the mor row may bring And are blind to the joys of to-day. In their hearts is the mournful aigli of the trees When the songsters 'nave fluttered away. Hut tiie souls who have learned of the magic and charm That is hid in the heart ot a (lower, That is heard in the swell of the rap turous eong Of a bird in the eventide hour, Have a guerdon of comfort that fame cannot bring, And a pleasure 110 riches can give.

FAREWELL TO THE FAN. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 15 October 1914

FAREWELL TO THE FAN. With the coming into general use of the electric fan and elaborate scien tific systems of ventilation in assem bly hall, church, theatre, and ball room, the fan of history and romance, wielded for close on four centuries by feminine hands, is rapidly passing The art of fan-making, in which distin guished painters once joined, has nowadays become a prosaic trade. Machines turn them out by tens of thousands; Japan is said to export 11 millions a year. But the real fan of sentiment and fashion is practically no more. There iB no longer the excuse for it, and hence it has ceased being part of the feminine costume. As the wo man's weapon of coquetry and inflti ence it has been discarded. Fans arc not to-day the romantic presents they once were, and in social life they have come to be less and less seen. The modern woman does not seem to need them at ail, or want them. The fan is no longer a" personal posses sion. Any fan will do,"the most Insig nificant little affair...

AN "UNSINKABLE" SHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 15 October 1914

AN "UNSINKABLE" SHIP. Mr. Caine, of Trapp, ijlandilo, Car marthenshire, a retired sea captain or many years' experience, has con structed and patented a model ship the principle of which is such that lie claims it to he an absolute impossi bility for a vessel so built to be sunk in any circumstances. lie contend.' that, the present straight-sided ship can never be of sullicient buoyancy to t-upport the extra weight of water which enters her interior after an ac cident. His model is built on an entirely dilferent plan. The ship has concave sides. There are several bulkheads extending athwart from the port to starboard sides, but the principle by reason of which unsinkability Is claim ed is in a watertight belt running the whole length of the ship on each side from bow to stern at the level cf the deck. This belt is divided into many separate watertight compartments, and these give the ship the necessary buoyancy to counterbalance the exLra burden of a flooded interior, no matter how ...

WHAT THEY LACKED. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 15 October 1914

WHAT THEY LACKED. Two moil on n train wore: apparently old acquaintances, and they wore in a jovial inooil. Both were prey, but each had a luxuriant head of hair. Near them sat a stout party with a shining dome that was almost desti tute of hirsute covering. The. two friends exchanged face tious remarks about silver lochs, then indulged in some pleasantries about the 'thinning of the thatch," witli casual references to door luiobs and billiard balls, much to the amusement of the passengers, but to the evident discomfiture of the bald-headed man. The talk finally developed into an argument of the cause of baldness, nnd after considerable jocularity, the pair turned to the pearly-pated man, and one said: — "My friend nnd I have been discuss ing the cansc of baldness, but wo enn't seem to agree. Would you mind tell ing us what you regard as the real cause .of baldness?" The stranger wheeled about, eyed his questioner fiercnly, and uttered just one word, "Brains!" It's a mistake to know...

THE SENTENCE OF THE COURT. By FRED M. WHITE. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., London and Melb. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER XXX. The Face Behind the Glass. It was fortunate perhaps for Here path that he was alone just at that moment. He had quite recovered from his surprise by the time that Player returned with the tea. Herepath de cided that he would say nothing of his discovery to anybody; at least no body should know except Harold Gay. At any rate, he knew who the thief was now, and nothing would be gain ed by betraying his suddenly gained knowledge to Player. He would" get away as soon as pos sible and return home. He had plenty of food for thought as he walked; along. It was nearly seven o'clock by the time he reached the. quaint and charming old house near the lodge gates of Cam'ford. Apparently Gay 1-ad finished work for the day, for he was in the garden sm.vdng a peaceful pipe. Blanche was nowhere to be seen, for which Herepath w«is grateful. "B...

CHAPTER XXXII. An Eye For An Eye. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 15 October 1914

CHAPTER XXXII. An Eye For An Eye. The sudden - defection of his child had been a bitter 'blow to Harley. There were reasons for his rage and his seeming impotence in the matter far deeper than any. that Gilray dreamt of. The miser had been taken toy surprise. Enid's rebellion was the last thing he -would have ex pected. Hitherto the girl had been docile enough. Certainly she had ■protested and argued, and that was all, and Harley did not mind that. She had found the task of go-between, which had been thrust on her, a hate ful one, and had speedily become sus picious that there was something very wrong about the business carried on so secretly, but so far she had never before dared to set that Btern old father of hers at defiance. When Gilray brought him the news of Enid's flight so dramatically, Har ley raged and fumed for some time like a lunatic, and the doctor deem ed It prudent not to interfere. Cut iiy. and-by the old man calmed down, and Beemed prepared^ to face the situa tion...
