Dentistry 1,000 Years ago. During a lengthy relic-hunting visit to Ecuador, Professor Mar shall Howard Saville,' head of the archaeology department of Colunm bia University, made several note worthy discoveries which will do much to enlightcn the present gen eration about the early residents of that country. The relics indicate these people to have been civilised andl posssessing scientific knowledge. The most interesting discoveric?s were skull: which sho\el I that the men arv of a type suplerior to the Aztecs, for beyond the shape of the skull, teethl were filled with golbI andi cement, proof unmistakable, that dlentistry was at a high stage of developmllent one thousandL years ago. In Mexico human teeth have been dug up that were filled and orna mented with stone, but this is the first instance of gold filling having been found in a prehistoric skull. The gold was inside the teeth. showing little on the outside, so thie purpose was apparently for util ity rather than for ornament...

CANADIAN COLD. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 27 February 1914
CANAI)IAN COLD. The late Rev. Dr. Mason when in Rlupert's Land as a missionary had a decidedly unpleasant experience one winter. T'he cold there is of ten so intense that mercury freezes and thermometers are useless. You get frost-bitten all over, ears, cheeks, nose, hands-all have their turn. Once whe1n Dr. Mason was out shooting (it was shoot game or starve then), he became very thirsty. A little hoar frost had gathered on the barrel of his gun and thought lessly he tried to lick it of, but the intense cold of the metal drew his tongue, and it froze to the gun. Strong measures were obviously nccessary, sd grasping the gun in both hands he simply tore it away and with it a piece of tongue larger than a shilling. The pain was intense, but he.was lucky not to have entirely lost his tongue. It is calculated that two per cent. of Lownd.oners have red hair,
An Ingenious Defence. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 27 February 1914
*An Ingenious Defence. At Munchen-Ghldbach, an import ant West-Gernan manufacturing town, a short time ago, a defend ant in the police-court was ques tioned why he had not answered a summons on an earlier date, and, W itnout furl hoc lersuasion. he re pliedi that he had been unable to read the signature appended to the dlociument. and th!erefore considered, himscll justified in doubting its authenticity. SThe defendant's solicitor enlargedl oti the point of the illegibility of the signature, and surlprised the court intensely by pleadiung that the illegible signature rendered the document totally void of legal value. This original standpoint he man aged to support with such a mass of legal precedent that the court decided that a sumnions signed with an illegible signature could have no value in law.

Asleep in the Dustbin. The dust.binls of Rouen, which the authorities of that town boast are of the most. modlern type in France, iaave been nearly responsible for the dleath of a man. When the dlust bins hav\e been collected early in tlhe nIorning they are hooked on to an endless chain which carried thlem up to the top of a furnace and t'here nutonamtially niempties them. When this \as being dlone on Friday, a workailln noticed what looked like a good pair of trousers in onie of the dustlins, as it was about to be emniptied into the.furnace. Anxious to save the garment for his own use, he pulled the lever which stops the uovement of thie chain. Lbokilg closer, he found a man asleep in the ldustlhin. The mani had been put in the dlustbin to sleep, as a joke, by several companions with whom he had spent the evening, and who were intoxicated.

Animals as Weather Prophets. Shepherds tand others who spend mnuch time in the open air say that we may always know when it will rain by watching the ways of ani mnals. Thus, if (Ionikeys bray more often than usual, or if they hang their ears downwards and forwards nnd rub against walls, rain will COIluO on. When cuats sneeze, and when they also give Iup chasing their tails, look out for rain. It will be rainy if the dogs eat grass or 1be drowsy andl stupid. Expect rain when sheep turn their backs to the wind and when peacocks squanwk a great deal, and when pigs carry straw to their styles or are very restless andi given to;iuch grunting, and when the imole throws up plenty of soil. - Rain will come when horses stretchl out their necks and sniff the air.
