Random Readings. HAY FEVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 22 November 1910
Random Readings. HAY FEVER. Hav fever occurs in neurotic peo ple, generally of the educafed class es, and usually shows itself in early adolescence. The irritant is the pol 'len of many varieties of grasses and flowering plants, and researches Have shown that it is the result not of mere mechanical irritation, but of a definite chemical substance in the pollen. The neurotic predisposi tion is important, remarks the 'Hospital,' and it is reported that a typical attack of hay fever may be induced by the sight of an arti ficial rose. In predisposed persons the inhalation of any form of dust may brfhg on an attack, and some people are affected By 'driving behind horses or by the presence of a cat. Many patients gradually lose their susceptibility with advancing age.

THE MARVELLOUS REMEDY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 22 November 1910
THE MARVELLOUS REMEDY. Mr. Mullin received in the mail a bright green almanack containing tho signs of the zodiac, a calendar, a few new and full moons, and some 10,000 useful bits of information. For in stance, Mr. Mullin read that the city of London boasted 8,000 churches, and beneath that he came across tho startl ing statement that shortness of breath indicated the nearness of the tomb. 'My breath has been rather short of late,' he murmured. After that, sandwiclied^n between the strength of the Japanese army and the table of feminine Christian names, he read the several statements that morning lassitude, pains in the back' and lack of ambition denoted an early grave — always unless the Soinething or-Other was taken bountifully. Mr. Mullin realised sorrowfully that all these symptoms were his, and procur ing his hat and stick he set out. At the corner he encountered old Mrs. Parrott. 'Lookin' rather glum, George,' she comforted. 'Anything ailing ?' He shook his head dolefully. 'B...

jNev, Odd, Interesting. A, boy's hair grows at half the rate of a girl's. Most -spiders have poisonous tangs, but few ~ are dangerovs to human beings. Many an Arab lady never leaves her house from the time she is mar ried until her death. 'Some of our largest passsenger steamers can be converted into armed cruisers in thirty, hours.

ALMOST SUCCESSFUL. -'?'v ? 1 -v. ,r . ? Thi* world ;is M: pf people who are-almost successful; Hiere is a man who is almost a lawyer, but not (quite ; here is another who is almost a physician, but is neither a good druggist, a good surgeon, nor a good dispenser. Another man is almost a clergyman, or about half way between a farmer/or a trades man, and a clergyman. Another is almost a teacher, but not quite com petent to take charge of a school or 'an academy. We meet, every day, people who are almost something, but just a little short of it. If these people undertake anything,' they never quite finish 'it'; they never quite complete j their courses at school.; they never quite learn a trade or profession. They always manage to stop just short of suc cess. We encounter . people every where who are almost happy, al most philosophical, almost religious yet never ? belong to any class or sect. - They never know just where they stand; they are not quite any thing.

AN INTERESTING RELIC. [?] [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 22 November 1910
AN INTERESTING RELIC. ( There is - in the - White House a desk which could tell a most inter esting story, had it a .tongue,' The wood from which it is made has known the Arctic cold, has made a mysterious voyage, the details of which will never be known, add has twice formed the gift of one na tion to another. ' The history ot this desk; . in short, ..is as follows : H. M.S. .Resolute was .fitted out to go in Search of the ill-fated ex pedition- of^Sir John .Franklin; The vessel, in its turn, was abandoned. In 1855, more than a year later, the George Henry, , an American vessel, commanded by Captain J. M. Buddington, sighted, in the icy Arctic sea, a ship towards which he drifted for five days. When the vessel was seven miles off, he sent a detachment of men across the ice to investigate. They found that the vessel was the lost Resolute. For one year and four months no human foot had'trod the decks. In that time the ship had made a self-directed voyage of over' 1,000 miles. The hol...
AN ARISTOCRATIC BEGGAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 22 November 1910
AN ARISTOCRATIC BEGGAR. Even a beggar may have pride — at least in Mexico. At a railroad station in that' country, says Mr. W. E. Carson in his book, 'Mexico,' he noticed, standing a little removed from the motley throng of mendicants, a melancholy looking Mexican, wearing a rather battered brown felt sombrero, his limbs encased in skin-tight trousers of thin grey cloth, adorned with numerous patches. Over his shoul ders was ax bright red blanket. He was strumming away at an old fashioned mandoline and singing some mournful Spanish song. Catching sight of me, he stopp ed playing and lifted his sombrero. I went out on the car platform and handed him five cents. To my as tonishment he politely declined my humble offering. 'Senor,' said he, in choice Spanish, with some emotion, 'you must - pardon me for being unable to accept your gift, butrl am a ten cent beggar, senor, and never, nev er accept a smaller gratuity.' Drawing himself up with an air of pride, he continued : 'I shall be ho...
CHILDREN'S APPETITES [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 22 November 1910
CHILDREN'S APPETITES To promote children's appetites there is no better plan that to give them plenty of outdoor exercise, fun and frolic, make them regular in their habits, and diet only upon plain, nourishing food, and they will seldom, if ever, complain of a lack of appetite. Never, however, keep them over-tasked in school, or con fine them closely to' the house after school hours and frown down any attempt at play. If children are fed upon rich or highly seasoned foods, nuts, etc., or allowed to eat between meals, it is hopeless to ex pect them to -have an appetite for their proper meals. Don't allow them to study - too much, and es pecially keep them from reading the ' penny dreadful.' Sickness is the most expensive nuisance in the world, and although' there may be cases where it makes people or chil dren better, it generally rfiakes them selfish and misanthropical, mean and miserable.' The best way to make children happy and good is to keep them well; - .
PHOTOGRAPHING A FIREWORK DISPLAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 22 November 1910
PHOTOGRAPHING A FIRE WORK DISPLAY. The photography of a good fire work show is comparatively simple, although the result is often extra ordinarily effective. A stand cam era is the most convenient form of apparatus for the purpose, as the exposure must be longer than the camera could be held steadily in the hand. If a hand camera only is available, then it must be placed on a suitable support. The stand camera must be marked for 'in- finity' before use for this purpose, as one is not able generally to focus on the fireworks themselves. This is easily done by turning the lens on some distant object, focusing it as sharply as possible, and then racking the lens a trifle nearer to the plate, just as far as it will go. in fact, without perceptibly impair ing the definition. A scratch may then be made on the base board with a snarp Knne 10 snow mc ex tension, so that at any time the camera can be opened out to the same place without refocusing. When the night comes and the display takes ...

Cookery. Orange-lee. Make a syrup of boiling four cupfuls of water and two cupfuls of sugar 20 minutes. Add two cupfuls of orange juice, on© fourth of a cupful of lemon juice, and the grated rind of two orang os. Cool, strain and freeze, using three parts of finely crushed ice to one part of rock salt. Orange Ice-Cream. Mix one cupful of thick cream and one cupful of this cream ; then add slowly two cupfuls of orange-juice, and sugar to sweeten. Freeze, using three parts of finely-crushed ice to one part of rock salt. Orange ice-cream is at its best when sorved in glasses with strawberries or other fresh fruit mash ed and sweetened. Raspberry Jelly. Put some freshly-gathered raspber ries into an earthenware mortar with a third of their quantity of red cur rents and some pounded sugar. Mash them well. Put in a little water, run this through a jelly bag, and stir in some melted cold isinglass — about ioz. to the quart. Fill the moulds and set in a cool place. To Prevent Cheese From Ge...
The Camera. [?] MEYER. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 22 November 1910
The Camera. ? ' ? '' WcTfAR.12— ntl,M'r I Those who work the carbon, gum, or similar processes, in which it is not possible to judge the progress of printing by looking at the print itself, find when a number of frames are to be put out at once that the cost of a separate meter for each is prohibitive. A most eilective meter can be made by exposing a I plate, at about eight feet distance, to the light of a candle in the dark room, closing the shutter of the dark slide half an inch at a time, so that the plate receives two, four, eight, sixteen, thirty-two, sixty four, and one hundred and twenty eight seconds respectively. It should then be developed until a fairly vigorous negative results, and then fixed, washed, and cut up into strips an inch wide. Strips of P.O.P. exposed under one of these strips will be found to give a trustworthy indication of the extent to which printing has been carried.
