UERIDITY. "Males inherit the char;cteristics of *heir female parent, and females in herit the characteristics of their male parent." Writing in support of this theory a correspondent of the "British iMedical Journal" says: "We often notice how rarely a great writer, great poet, or great artist has a son who fol lows in his fontsteps, though. the daughtcrs may write or paint. In the same way when an amiahle womnan rmarries .bhadt elIt It-rll man, tht: sons eIt perced." Maisie: "The ocean is very treach erous." Cecil: "Yes, it/is full of craft "

FACTS AND FANCIES. Protective Coloration. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 17 January 1914
FACTS AND FANCIES. -4----- Irotective Coloration. It is not a mere matter of chance that the tiger's coat is marked with its beautiful stripes of black and yellow and that the lion is of a uni form sandy hue. The former lives in the grassy jungles of Asia, where the giant blades, of grass, as many feet long as they are inches in this country, and tlih light and shade of the forest are adlnira;bly matched by the skin of the animal in ques tion. Hence it is able to approach its prey unpcr'ceited. - Lions, the big cats of .\Africa, on the other hand, are for the most part dwel lers in the wilderness, and roam the outskirts of the desert in search of food. 'their aol or in these sur rotmclings is equallly prlotective. There are countless examples of this protective coloration among ani mals. Somletimes,.as in the cases just cited, the ellect is to enable them the more easily to obtain their food. But it also acts in another way by affording concealment to weakc i and timid creatures fro...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 17 January 1914
The longer the proposal to provide tramways between Essendon and Wil liamstown, via Footscray, is delayed the less chance there is of the scheme ever being gone on with.
