BOOM IN ZOOS ANIMALS LIKE THEIR CAGKS. "No tirds and no mammals, from whatsoever part of the wor d or cli mate they may have come, ever ap proach the duration of life which-ythey may be expected to attain, if they are kept in the interior of a warmed house," said Dr Chalmers Mitchell, secretary to the Zoological Society of London, referring to the new open-air installations at the Zoo in a caper read before the Royal Society of Arts last night (says the "Daily Express" of November 27). The customary heating arrange ments are expensive but certain modes of killing them. Fresh air is the fun damental necessity. "There is -what may be called a boom in zoological gardens^ he said.

WEATHER PROPHETS THE POINT OF VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 February 1914
JWEATHEK PMPHETS^i " the point of view. (By Barry Pain." In the "Daily Mail.") jln the, little smoking-room at the back" of the bar the conversation was mainly between Mr Hagley, a stqlld looklng man in gaiters, who had made an unproved assertion and stuck tp It, and Mr Peterson, a fluent little man with spectacles, London-born, who ob jected to unproved assertions. There were others present. . There was the landlord, a wise man who' sald little. And in the leather-covered armchair by the flre was the obese figure of Mr Jackson. Mr Jackson had sold a horse extremely well that day—almost too well in the opinion of purists—and was now very tired. Even in sleep his podgy fingers never relaxed their grip of his half-smoked cigar, and occasionally ho woke up for a moment and contributed something to the conversation which had no direct bearing upon it: "We'll all friends here," said Mr Peterson glibly, "and I am sure I havo no wish to lose my temper or to make use of any expreBBlon which...

DEADLY FLANNELETTE Inflammable clothing as a cause of deaths by Are Is exposed in a striking manner by statistics compiled by "Fire." The writer says:— "When the fireguards clause was In corporated In the Children Act It was piously hoped that the number of chil dren annually burned to death would be reduced by half. So far as our records , go. the number of infantile mortalities has increased, for the Act is practic ally a dead letter; few penalties are im posed in. the comparatively few in stances where proceedings have beeu taken. The Government did not strike at the principal cause of Infantile burn ing fatalities—inflammable clothing." "Very few men are burnt to death owing to their clothing igniting," adds the writer, "but it is different with women, quite 93 per cent of the fatal ities to women reported being due to the Inflammability of their wearing apparel." | The total of Are fatalities this year to I November 19, as compiled by the writer, | is 64 men, women, and 692 chi...
