CUPS OF COFFEE VALUE AS STIMULANT In a recent issue of tile "Lancet" it is pointed out that hitherto such analyses of coffee as have from time to time been made and published have referred to an examination of the entire coffee berry, and not to the infusion as it reaches the con sumer, The results are. now set forth of an investigation into the composition of the' infusion tb be drunk, tile chemistry, of the "grounds" having been left out of consideration. In drawing a comparison between coffee and.tea- the results show that while the. alkaloid caffeine in coffee is identical with that ill tea, yet its as sociations in i:coffee are different. In tea infusions the alkaloid occurs chiefly as a tannate, which is a com pound insoluble in the acid juices of the Stomach. In coffee it occurs in an easily soluble compound.

WIFE'S COWBOY LOVER HUSBAND TOO MUCH OF GENTLEMAN. The love of a highly cultured New York woman for an uncouth, illiterate ranchman was disclosed In the Su preme Court to-day (says the New York correspondent of "Thle Daily .Mail'" of November 25) when a divorce was granted to Mr Charles Dwight Folsomn, a well-known lawyer, on the strength of a letter addressed to him by his wife, who wrote from a small town in North California: "You were too much of a gentleman. Brutality is necessary for my control; this man has it." Mrs Folsom's amazing letter de scrieCs in great detail and with fine literary skill her meeting with the man whomnl she calls her "natural mate." "He sought me out," she says, "because of a chance word of mine he heard in the street. He was kinder to me than anyone else has ever been. I did not lov'e him at first, and was merely happy and contented with him. He took me long drives. He loves horses as much as I do. In fact, he knows nothing but horses. His whole life ha...

TRAINED ANIMALS MR. THOMAS HARDY'S VIEWS [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 February 1914

TRAINED ANIMAALS MIt. THOMAS IIAIDY'S \VEWS Mr. Thonlmas Hlardy, in the couirse of a letter to "The Times," says that possibly solne anilmlals mnay be, and are, trailned fur perfornlances without discomfort to themselves, but there is ample evidence to show that many trainers prefer short cuts to attain their ends, and that these short cuts are by the way of cruelty. I have been ptresent, continues MIr. Hardy, at dog performanlllces at country fairs. where the wretched animals so trembled with terror when they failed to execute the feat required of themn that they could scarcely stand, and remained with eyes of mlisery fixed upon their master, paralysed at the lkno\\ledge of \wha!t \was in store for thent behind the scenes, whence their shrieks could afterwards be heard through the canvas. And there are cruelties of a Imore insidious kind produced by drugs. As to tile caging of birds, the assertion that a caged skylark experiences none of the mnisery of a caged mall makes demands up...

DISEASE IN INDIA REPORT FROM LABORATORY-. The annual report of the Bombay Bacteriological Laboratory for the year 1912, which has just been issued, con tains, as usual, much information of general interest (says the "Westminster Gazette" of November 2S). In the year 700,000 doses of anti plague vaccine have been manufac tured at the laboratory and distributed to China, Africa, and Java, as well as to many places in India. Investigations into the cause, prevention, and- treat ment of a number of diseases have also been undertaken. The first part of the report deals with the study of plague. A large number of statistics have been collected which again serve to emphasise the advantage of inoculation as a means for combat ing this disease, some poisons for de stroyin;g rats have been tested, and ex x tcrinent_ have been made to ascertain the most convenient and eflicient means for preventing the transfer of plague in fection in grain from Bombay to other ports, e-pecihlly in the Persian...

INDIA'S POET HOW THE NEWS ARRIVED [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 February 1914

INDIA'S POET HOW THE NE\WS A.RRIVED A little after four the boys spread over the great treeless plain which surrounds the Santiniketan, dividing into four games of football and one of cricket (writes "Conrad of Elsass"- in "The Westminster Gazette"). In No v'ember the sun sinks very fast; it is still hot at four; yet cold and dark long before half-past five. 1 joined the cricketers, small boys who played really very well. My Part in their game was that of in structor; I showed them how to bowl off-breaks. Darkness fell quickly. After the cricket camewwhat is called the "entertainment period.' The students take it for granted tliat the sahibs who visit them, a small company, are entertaining persons, and will occupy this hour. "Mr A---- al ways addresses us, and Mr P- does; so you will." I did. It was a glorious moonlight, and they sat on their strips of matting on the plain behind the Asram (Asylum). They got ten minutes of Bengali and rather more of English.

THE BEET SUGAR INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 February 1914

THE BEET SUGAR INDUSTRY. [Abridged fromt the Special Report in the "''Age.''] The principal object of the agitation Etarted amongst the closer settlers of liilmlany and Boisdalo is directed against the condition requiring them to utilise a minimum area of 10 acres each year for beet cultivation "'unless a remission is given by tlhe Agricul tural Department." It often happens that the comnplaint which carries far comes from the settler who does the least work. He gives himself time to gain protfciency in the art of com plaining., and all the while adds to his stock of material to grumble about. There are nmen who can make enough to live on by milking a few cows. They begrudge even that effort, and would no doubt welcomne the day whlen success crowned the inlgenluity of that eminent economlser of his own labor who thought of fixing an ap paratust to the udders and lower jaws Sof his dairy cows, so that they would milk themselves while chewing the cud.

GEELONG WOOL SALES. Dennys Lascelles Ltd. report, 29th January:-For the tenth sale of the season 12,000 bales were offered in Geelong. our catalogue comprising 391S bales, nearly' all drawn from the Western District; hardly so good a selection as last week. still a very fair one, including an undue proportion of lots passed in at earlier sales: For these we found with faulty merinoes or mixed crossbreds that prices in many instances were less than former hids. but, on the other hand. all good mrerinoes sold at from a %d to a ld advance. As a rule, those lots for which market value had previously been bid and withdrawn on owners' reserves, met with a poor reception. and had again to be passed. The at tendance of buyers was a full one, but there was Ihardly the same keen ness for every lot as was shown last week, and we made crossbreds below 50's in quality slightly easier. For all other sorts there was a firm market, and all good to superior merinoes sold higher than at any previous ...
