GRAFTING HUMAN EYES. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 17 January 1914
GRAFTING HUMAN EYES. 1 Ahother wonder has been added to the long list of miraculous ope rations accomplished by modern surgical science. For it has been found possible to save the sight of a patient suffering from a diseased eye liy cutting out the altected part and "grafting" on the eye a whole some part taken from another eye. The first point that will occur to the . reader will probably be that this necessarily involves the sacri fice of some healthy person's eye. If this were so the discovery would be useless. On the contrary, it is possible to make use of eyes that, from various causes, have had to be removed-provided the particular section required for grafting is it self . free from disease.. So neither, victimization nor heroic self-sacri fice is required. | In an operation recently performed by a French surgeon a voting man had almost lost the sight of one eye through a Mini from hot lime. The cornea-that is, the transparent : part of the, coat 01 the eyeball which covers t...

All Rights Reserved. VIOLET LISLE; OR,. A PEARL BEYOND PRICE. By the Author of "All or Nothing," "Two Keys," etc., et«. PART 2_ CHAPTBR III. A SUDDEN WOOING. The thought of Martin Jenkins' of fer of his hand had not made her blush befqre, and she found herself wondering vaguely why it should do bo now. But Guy thought nothing of the blush. He gave her back her book,.- and took her hand and said good-bye with such a look of hope in his eyes that she wondered at it. Then he-leaped on his horse and was gone, and she walked^ home with a feeling of sadness in her heart ; for it seemed to her that he had . gone off with less care to meet again than she had-though how a meeting could have come about she did not know. She said nothing to Goody White of this meeting ; for what would be the use ? And she said nothing of it -to her father ; for, again, what would be the use ? The next day Violet did not go singing and tripping the way to the. abbey. She was strangely quiet, yet not unhappy. Sh...
CHAPTER IV. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 17 January 1914
CHAPTER IV. The Countess Darlington.was Bueh| a woman that one would have ex pected the mother of Guy' Darlington .to be-stately and beautiful-. Digni fied, to the verge of haughtiness with others, with Guy she had always been the tenderest and most devoted of mothers. She had watched his growth from boyhood into perfect manhood with a pride that knew no bounds. He had been a little wild, but never vicious ; had made her his confidante and com panion as much as a young man very well could; but in the abounding health of both his mind and body there had never been any confidences worthy of the name to make. She had told him to go and see the world, and he had gone as a young prince might have gone, scattering his gold right and left, meeting everywhere a welcome that was most royal-a welcome that was accorded partly to his wealth, partly to Ms title, and very much to his joyous, manly nature and his extremely good looks. Perhaps he had unintentionally broken some hearts-his own had n...
CHAPTER V. MOTHER AND SON. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 17 January 1914
' CHAPTER V. ? MOTHER AND SON. The words that Guy uttered to liis mother were simple ones to him, and he spoke them without either heat or indecision- He had no thought of opposition from her, and if he spo'te decidedly, he also spoke calmly. But to Lady Darlington the words v.?ere. a shock, and almost involuntarily thp question rose sharply to her lips : ."Who is Violet Lisle?" Then a low laugh broke from Guy, and he looked dreamily at the f;re. ""True, mother, I ought to: have known that we were playing at cross purposes. flow could you know , wivh Violet was. Ah, mother, it is .IcEs who she is than what she .is.". ?' He was so serene, so certain of her approval, as she could sea, ..that it was difficult for her to know how-to* take the startling ?c.o'ifessiori .whicV he had made to her. " And who is she, as veil as what is she?" she asked in a" low to'ic He studied a moment, clasping Urns hands: over his knee and rocking slight!j as he dreamily pictured ^Vio let ;to himself. How ...
Surprising Changes in Star Clusters. ORION TO BE OVERTHROWN. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 17 January 1914
Surprising Changes in Star Clusters. - t ORION TO BE OVEKTHUOWN. Everything changes, even the "con stellations which the average indi vidual when he gazes on fine nights up to the heavens regards as for ever permanent. * In a fascinating paper, Prof. Garrett P, Serviss tells us of the past and future rtf such starry changes. One of the most surprising results of the . «;ross motion, of the fixed stars, as projected on the back ground of the sky, is, we are told, the gradual falling to pieces of the familiar constellations. The, stars are moving in all sorts of direc tions, some faster and some slower, and the inevitable consequence must lie that in a few centuries if we could come back again to our | earthly life we should not recog nise them. Of course, a very long period of time w'ill be required to produce a very' great transforma tion, but it is going on all the time, and in some cases a few years suflicc..' to render the- effects lnea- . surable with astronoriiical instru ments...
