THE FOOD, AND MEANS TO COOK-rr. ; ? T'— — The most curious of all the curi osities in Yellowstone-Park (U.S.A.) are the hot springs.. There ? are several of them, and the water is never below boiling point. Une or these hot pools is just a few paces from the shores of a large; clear lake. \ ' .; The angler may drop his line in the. lake, catch his fish', reach round and boil his captive in the spring just behind him. ? It is not often that Nature pro vides food and . the wherewithal to cook it at one and the. Same spot. . Though many of the freaks are mysteries to even the most learned scientific men, it is generally under stood that the hot pools are due to volcanic fires. -

RHODES AND THE MATA BELE. ? One who has been a trooper in the British camp at the time, in pointing but the site of Rhodes's tenf and of the ' meeting with the Matabele chiefs, told us the story as it struck 'the man who was there, ' but seeing things -trom tne outsiae only. He told how ?- Rhodes had lived for six; weeks in his i sofa ted tent. 'Then,' said he, 'one even ing Mr. Rhodes was talking with Baden-Powell and some of themyand he said to' them, '1 believe the Mata bele are as tired of the war as we are, and if someone of importance would just walk over unarmed to their camp and offer them favour able conditions of peace they would come' in.' And the others said that was all very well, but who was go ing to do it? Mr. Rhodes didn't make any answer to that, but next morning we couldn't find him in his tent, nor yet in the camp. There was a rare hunt for'Mr.. Rhodes, and at last it came out he had gone over to the Matabele camp with three of his friends, and was making peace w...

Random Readings. SEEING WITH THE NERVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 3 January 1911

Random Readings. - . ? , — ?— r : ? ???. SEEING WITH THE NERVES. Several years ago a half-dozen members of two well-known- New York families were somewhat play fully experimenting in 'mmd-read- ing'' by blindfolding 'A,' who placed his fingers on the forehead of 'B,' who .looked intently at an object held up by 'C' under a bright light, the purpose being to learn .--if 'A'- could, name the ob ject seen by''B.' Each individual completely failed, until a girl of 16 surprised and thrilled all present by corrcctly nam ing one and another object seen by 'B.' While the circumstances un der which this performance de veloped 'wpuld suffice as to possible collusion for any ordinary event, they cannot suffice for this one. Nor that a physician of high standing was present, for such can be fooled by prestidigitation' or collusion ra ther easiLy. Some days later the writer made' the following tests : - — Acthig as the observer 'B,' I had a cardboard, which had a piece the shape of a 'red cross'...

NURSING SICK CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 3 January 1911

NURSING SICK CHILDREN. In nursing children great tact is required ; unless a nurse has a heart full of love for them, she will be of little use. It is no kindness to let a child have everything he wants because he is ill, and by a lit tle tact he may be diverted to- some other object than the one he Fancies If a child takes little notice, and will not laugh or crow, if is undoubtedly ill,! and advice should be sought at once. It is a wise plan, when chil dren are recovering from illness, to keep them in bed longer than is real ly necessary. .When a child is in bed you know where he is; but, if dressed and about he will probably be out of the door, running up the street the moment he is left alone. In giving medicinej never deceive a child by saying that he is getting something which is 'so good.' It may answer once, but the struggle will be greater next time, besides the harm 'that is done to the child's moral nature. 'Tell him that the medicine is'not nice, but will do him good, an...

THE SUN AND THE HAIR. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 3 January 1911

THE SUN AND THE HAIR. Hygiene having discovered in the habitual use of' feminine headgear out. of doors a reason for the p re- valance of gr-fy hairs amongst com paratively young women, to retain colour of the hair the future genera tion will go bareheaded. Already many '.of them are barefooted, and not a few, are barearmed, so, with the gradual overthrow of civilisation, we may__hope to attain to the simple costume' of the barbaric age in the course of a few years. The sun gives light and colour to the hair, and an 'old woman's recipe' says to keep hair its origin?! colour 'wash and dry, in the sun.' Coun try girls, who rough-ride the coun try paddocks in all weathers with a handkerchief tied under t le chin, need no hair tonics to revive | and sus tairi the colour and growtji of ; the hair. In America, at all public en tertainments, concerts, and even under the pulpit, women remove their hats, pegs being provided for their use as well as for the men, and though ' thus to uncover '...

GERMS AND WOMEN'S PETTICOATS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 3 January 1911

GERMS AND WOMEN'S PETTI COATS. ' ? ' ; I Bacteria like the, poor,, we have 'always- With' : irs. ? - They ? iriterfere with our pet extravagances, dog our footsteps, destroy our pleasure and cast a gloom over everything. The latest thing to fall ' under the- ban of displeasure is the silk petticoat — that garment beloved -by all wo men, and now their innocent pride in its rich froufrou has departed. In stead of being a cherished posses sion, they fly far from it- on account of the danger lurking within its folds and finely-pleated frilfs arid flounces. These gather up the germs of tuberculosis, measles, and the like, and 'introduce them into the family circle, so we are told. The reason why the silk petticoat is fixed upon for condemnation is owing to its being un washable. 'A woman who owns one or two of these garments wears them con stantly, and as washing would spoil them, they become perfect harbors for poison; germs. The same Ob jectiori does nbt hold with regard to the skirts ...

GOSPEL OAKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 10 January 1911

GOSPEL OAKS. In the small village of Polstead, Suffolk, there still exists a 'gospel oak' which according to the Rev. F. J. Eld, the Rector of Polstead, is over 2, 000 years old. The oak has a girth of 36ft., and although the 'gospel oaks^' generally stood on the boundaries of parishes, this tree stands in the centre of the village. 'Gospel oaks' at one time studded the country, taking their names from the fact that they served as stations from which the Christian missionaries preached to the Angles and Saxons 1,300 years ago. Very few of the trees now remain, but in some cases it is' possible to tell vaguely where they stood from the names given to places, such as Gos pel Oak and Kentish Town.

DIVORCE AMONG PRIMITIVE PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 10 January 1911

DIVORCE AMONG PRIMITIVE PEOPLE. Divorce is to be. found in the legal Systems of ancient civilisation. Little is, however, known of divorce among primitive peoples, and the system of divorce practised among the Boudouma people, dwelling about Lake Chad, is therefore of in terest. If the husband demands' di vorce, he has to renounce the dot; that is always the ctfse if he be a prodigal. A wife demanding di vorce without good, re.- sons must re store to her huband double the value of his settlement upon her. If she cannc-t do so, he must wait until she again marries ,and the new husband has to take this liability. If the wife has good grounds for divorce she retains the dot. The causes which are usually grounds for di vorce among the Chad. Boudouma people are thus given - by a- French writer on the sub 1 ject : The husband assault ing his wife or neglecting to provide her with raiment or necessaries, in compatibility of temper, infidelity on either side, or tlip wife.neglecting the wan...

A WARNING TO LIARS. In the market place of the old fashioned town of Devizes , stands the market cross, which bears the following inscription as a warning to liars: 'On Thursday, the .25th. of January, 1753, Ruth Pierce, of Potterne, in this county agreed with three other women to buy a sack of wheat in the market, each paying her due proportion towards the same. One of these women in collecting the several quotas of money, discovered a deficiency, and demanded of Ruth Pierce the sum .which was wanting to make good the amount. Ruth Pierce protested that she had paid her share,' and said, 'She wished she might drop dead if she had not. ' She rashly repeated that awfui wish, when, to the consternation and terror of the surrounding multitude, she instantly fell down and expired, having the money in her hand. .
