ALCOHOL AS CAUSE OF CANCER. It is suggested in a report from Ba varia, just published by the Foreign Of fice UN ;i White-paper, from Mr. Buchanan, tho British Consul, that there is a close connection between alcohol and cancer, for a high medical authority in Bavaria declared that most of his patients Buffer ing from cancer aro connected witli tho public house trade, and freely consumo al cohol in somo form or other. The Consul points to tho fact that endeavours made in high as well as even in social-democra tic quarters—both in Berlin and in Mu nich—to propagate tho principles of tem perance, together with tho higher cost of living, aro not without results, as is shown by the steady decrease in tho con sumption of beer.

The Trans-Continental Railway. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 3 February 1912
The Trans-Continental Railway. Mr. Fisher, in an interview in Sydney on Wednesday, mule it quite clear that the Federal Government is not likely to shift from the position it has taken up in regard to the gauge for the transcontin ental railway. " We are (joins to push on wit'* the work," lie said, "and on the gauge decided in the bill. The first sod will be turned about April or May. I am hopeful that there will be a considerable length of line laid down during this year, but (lie total construction will occupy about three or four years. The uniform gauge will come all right by that lime. You must not spring new ideas too sud denly on some people I think that, in the end, they will have to biing their gauges to 4ft. 8}in."

While considering, seriously, the matter of consulting a physician, it occurred to him, somehow, to try drinking a largo quantity of warm water at a time, nearly tilling the stomach with it when there was no food in the stomach. He had practised lrequontly Hushing of the large intestine tor some time, but without so much bene fit as he expected. In the morning, as soon as the water was warm in the tea kettle, he measured out a quart and drank it. During the rest of the day ho did not drink more than usual.

THE "SIXTH SENSE." [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 3 February 1912
TEE "SIXTH SENSE." The reported quest of a. "sixth sense" Is not the first attempt of the sort; for about five years ago, Prof. Watson, of t!io University of Chicago, performed an oper ation that excited the interest of the modicnl world. Tho subject of the experiment was a rat, anil by means of vivisection he destroyed tho livo senses of the rat without killing' it. Tho animal was then turned loose, and It found its v.-ay to food. This, Prof. Watson claimed, proved the existence of a sixth sense, which he believed to bo common to both men and animals. He called It the "Sense of Direction." And much earlier, Prof. Alex. Bain, of tho University of Aberdeen, %vrote: "The toolings connected with movements of the body or actions of the muscles have come to bo recognised as'# distinct class, and, by soma metaphysicians, as proceeding from a sixth or muscular sense."

Some of the surplus enthusiasm ill the cause of politics, as repre sented in this instance by a patri otic lervour which is in itself com mendable, was manifested at the Anniversary Day celebrations in Sydn&lt;-. on 2Gt.h January.
