Fortunes From Little Things. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 15 January 1914

Fortunes TFrom Little - Things. ' T A writer in the 'Scientific Ameri Cttif points out how many fortunes huvo been made from little, useful, cveryduy inventions. Mr. W. 11. Palmer, of Baltimore, was the in ventor of a cup for beer or soda water bottles which has made him a millionaire. - He carried the patent, in his pocket for six years before he succeeded in placing it on the market ; when ij. was placed Palmer and his capital ist had a proiit of many thousands of pounds between them on the first year's business. The difference between the old straight and the crinkly hair-pin made a fortune for an inventor, who took the cue from his wife's dilli culty>in the use of the article. The rubber eraser on the end of a pencil made a fortune for its in troducer, II. L. Lipman, of Phila delphia ; while lleatin, of Providence, who devised the little metal staple that -hoJds on shoe-buttons, realised a fortune thereby. Elias Howe evolved the sewing machine from the idea of placing n hole ...

Are You Becoming Bald. FACTS THAT MAY SAVE YOU. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 15 January 1914

Are You Becoming Bald. FACTS THAT MAY SAVE YOU. Duldness is a matter of head-gear. The doctors art* (airly well agreed upon that. Mon grow bald moro frequently than women because of the hats they wear. It is true that women wear bigger and often * heavier huts than men, but they attach them to their hair and not to their sculp#, hence they permit ventilation and do not constrict the veins, men's not only permit no nir to enter but constrict the blood vessels ull around tho head. Consider the sculp of man. It is it thin layer of muscles covered with thick skin, stretched over a hard, bony surface. Through this sinnll arteries loading to a network of ca pillaries which end in veins. The skin is full of tho follocles, or roots of hairs, and of glands which se crcto copious supplies of grease and perspiration. These hair roots and glands need a plentiful supply of blood, and anything that tends to cut of! this supply tends to im poverish the hair. The tight band of a hut constricts all ...

ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. A BAFFLED» «IMPOSTOR, OR, THE HEIR TO A DUKEDOM: A HUGE PERSONATION FRAUD. 4 By S. W. Hopkins, Author of "Od Four Brass Plates," etc., etc. PART 8. CHAPTER XI. Lord Chester, formerly known as I Gerald Lovering, and once an inmate i for thirty days of the New York Penitentiary under the name of Henry Barnes, lounged in his luxuri ous rooms in the Albany, listlessly trying to pass a rainy afternoon without tho bother of going out in the storm. It was weary work, for Lord Chester missed the companion ship that makes a rainy day often the most enjoyable to a man who reads. Lord Chester knew nothing of books. He cared nothing' for them. Give him the real thing—life in all "its'"'rosy''"Voluptuousness ; the club, the drive, the gaming table, or the! sweet hour with some temporary charmer. These were the elements that made Lord Chester's life a merry one ; made it worth living, in fact. "Can't stand it much longer," he said to himself. "Wonder if Brainerd , is at the c...

CHAPTER XII. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 15 January 1914

CHAPTER XII. The patience of Sir Peter had turn- ' eel to impatience, and this had grown to the fury of exasperation. The names of Lord Chester and Mildred Mooro were coupled together every-' where in London. If the shameless intimacy were not soon broken off, Sir Peter saw the crumbling of his hopes for Edwina ; and not only that he saw before him an angry duke, and the loss of the prestige of that duke's friendship and business. Sir Peter felt in great measure respon sible for Lord Chester—accountable to the duke for his moral and physi cal welfare. He could stand the scan | dal no longer. The time for action had come. j Sir Peter sat in his private office at the bank one afternoon in an unusu ally idle mood. He was waiting. A messenger entered. "Lord Chester to see you, Sir Peter," he said. "Ah ! Show his lordship in." Sir Peter rose from his chair and I took a few steps around the room. J He was nerving himself for the com i ing battle, which he felt would be; a ' severe one. Lo...

Curious Facets About the Great Lakes. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 15 January 1914

Lnko Huron's greatest depth also is a hundred feet more1 f than that of Lake Superior, so that- th« greatest is not superior to everything, after all.

Farmers Should be Students. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 15 January 1914

Farmers Should be Students. It is a well known fact that noth ing stands still (or any great length of time ; things either go forward and improve, or go backwards and deteriorate. If a lawyer has ambition to become a better lawyer, he docs not diminish his study of the law, but rather in creases it. If a doctor would attain to the highest pinnacle of his profes sion, he does not practice medicine ns it was taught and practiced 100 years ago, but he reads and studies the new ideas as advanced by known leaders and experimenters of to-day. Carpenters, printers, stone-masons, miners, merchants—all have discarded old and out of date methods for new er and more economical ways in which to do their work. IS THE FARMER CARELESS ? Have we as farmers kept up tho procession ? Let us investigate. Do men who wish to bccome farmers, in the great majority ot cases, think it necessary to go through a prescribed course of study ? They do not. Do they read up the newest and best methods of agricultu...
