Seabook, of the same suburb, were drowned at midday on Saturday at Point Lonsdale, off the ocean beach, in roost dramatic circumstances. Within sight of forty or fifty bathers at Elwood beach at 11 a.m. on Sunday Mrs Ellon Daly, aged 33, of 176 Edwards-street, Brunswick, collapsed while learning to swim, and she died in a few minntes. At the time the woman was only 30 yards from the shore, and in water which barely reached to the shoulder of her husband who was bathing with her. A sad drowning fatality occurred at Wyima op Saturday overling, whet) Mrs Baird, wife of Mr H. Baird, manager of the Government irrigation farm, lost her life.

WHAT PEOPLE EAT. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 January 1914
WHAT PEOPLE EAT. Nearly ©very nation has ita own particular forms of food. and things which some races would not touch are considered by others as tho greatest luxury. For instance, while the Arab eats lotus bread .and dhourra with tho relish of fresh dates, tha Greenlander gorges himself on animal fat and whalo oil aa the necessary means of keeping warmth in tho body. Hindoos will not touch' any form of flesh, but live happily on rice and rancid butter. An Englishman is sup posed to valuo beef and bacon above nil other articles of food, while the dwellers in tha Apennines lire on chest: j nuts. In ancient days the Roman em? ' perors wore accustomed to have a pear !cook 8erred at all great feasts as one of the' principal dainties, while these , bright birds' nests and rate forta ] choice disjv?s in .a Chinese menu,.
SIMPLE CEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 January 1914
SIMPLE CEMENTS. I One of the simplest hard cements is ; :he well-known mixture of litharge and | glycerine made to a stiff paste. It sets ' hard as a rock and is oil-proof. A ' solution of water glass mixed with powdered calcium carbonate serves the same purpose. A mixture of boiled .insced oil and fireclay resists acid setter than most cemcnts, though sul phur melted with glass-powder is also eery resistant to chemicals in general. A good stone cement is ir;ade by mix ing two parts of magnesium oxide, one part of magnesium chloride, powdered stone to suit as a filler, and water to make a stiff paste. Basic "magnesium chloride is formed.
SPEAKING WITHOUT USING THE MOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 January 1914
SPEAKING WITHOUT USING THE MOUTH, '? The throat telephone, for transmit ting specch from the outside of the throat, is a rather curious solution of a new difficulty in cline fpscue pork. The ojcygen helmet is being discarded by- the rescuer for a mouth-breathing apparatus, and, as this gives no free dom of the lips, the method of beep ing up cqmniynipation without the use pf the rtjouth has "bee^ devised. The transmitter, pla£?d in direct contact with the throat, is operated by the vibrations of the vocal chords, Cet ir.in Consonants, such as ''m" a&lt;21 "p" are not clearly transmitted, but i it is expected that misunderstanding from this source will be avoided by using a' special code of numbered words. The telephone's two receivers i are strapped against tiie ears. In Case of accident to the rescuer, the instru . ment can be quickly removed and used : by another member of the party seek ing the imprisoned miners. A word is short and quick, but works A long result.-J. S. B...
SUN POWER. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 January 1914
SUN POWER. It may He that very shortly it will be possible, to utilise sun-power to commercial advantage. A plant of 100-horse-power was last year in stalled at Cairo for pumping purposes. After running' satisfactorily for three days the heat was too great for the zinc boilers used, which had been found satisfactory in the United States. Cast-iron boilers have now been ordered for temporary use, but it is intended in future to use dished steel plates. In the experimental plant, starting up at noon on c3ld water, steam can be obtained in three, minutes, The exhaust steam J6 re turned to a condenser, a special type of low-pressure engine being used. If the present plant proves satisfac tory it will of course open up an im mense field in the Soudan fqr sim« ilar installations for irrigation pur poses.

STORING PETROL IN WATER. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 January 1914
STORING PETROL IN WATER. A new hydraulic method of storing petrol or gasoline is credited with im portant advantages. The unused spaco in the storage tank is kept always fill , od with water, and a simplo pumping I mcchanism causes the water to force | the oil out as required. In refilling^ tho ? tank tho water is drained away. The 1 two liquids do not mis,'tho light oil always floating on top; thoro is no IOSB from evaporation, as there is no gas to esoapo on refilling, and tho oil is pre served unchanged for any length of time.
SCIENTIFIC USES OF THE RADISH. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 January 1914
SCIENTIFIC USES OF. THE/ RADISH, , An alcoholic solution of the skin of a red radish serves as an excellent in dicator or test for acids and bases. In the presence of acids the colourless solution turns pink while with bases -alkaline solutions-it turns yellow. It is well known that many plant ex tracts such as litmus and agimal pro ducts like cochineal possess this pro perty of developing marked colours with acids and bases, tout no, other indicator is so simply_ made,.

CHAPTER XLV. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 9 January 1914
CHAPTER XLV. . Mr. Penlstone Cott begged to be al lowed to malce a statement to the Court. He would not have been In a position to withdraw and make the statement he proposed to make had not the jury stopped the case owing to the admissions of Mr. Ernest Sib stone and Lieutenant Ingram. He now thought it was his duty, in the interest of both plaintiff and defend ant, to come forward as a free agent. He wished to depose as follows: He had been standing at the door . of Lady Pettigew's dressing-room during "the discussion as to whether she should wear the pearl necklace in question or the diamond tiara; he advised the latter. He heard Miss Burney's comment, which was of a jesting nature, and he saw Lady Pet tigew throw the necklace on the floor; he expostulated with her, but motives of delicacy refrained him from enter ing her dreBSing-room to pick it up. In obedience to Lady Pettigew's re quest that he should run over his part with her before "going on," he retired to his dressing-ro...

All trace of tears had gone; one might almost say, all trace of woman, too. It was the .little vixen, Polly Hemmlng3. who stood there, wit.li touged t checks and blackened lashes. That make-up had a significance; it was u cli.illci'gc to tho world. Lady I'otli^ew hail fallen from her high es tate. As S'bstone. had stripped all the airs and v'-'t'^nces from oft the Countess, ITnint*' sank lower and low er In misery and humiliation until she touched the bottom. Then came re action There was no longer any need of pretence, of airs, of graces, so Polly Iloimnincs cast them grimly aside, and :isi.unied the fighting spirit of okl Joe llemmings in their place. Therefore, was she made up to hide the ravages of the night's strug gle, but she was ostentatiously made up as a challenge to all her fine friends who crowded back to Court n...

Woman Wins Case. COLLAPSE IN COURT.

She was carried out into the corridor, her friends calling to her that she had won the case. The lady had fainted, and did not recover for some minutes. Mrs Agnes Drewart Smith bought a private hotel in Port man street, which she bought after boarding there. When the purchase took place she kept on Mrs Smith as manageress for some time. Eventually Mrs Smith was dismissed, and her case was that MrB Campbell stated she had dismissed her for drunkenness and theft.

Poverty of Dublin. VISIT TO SLUMS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 9 January 1914
Poverty of Dublin. VISIT TO SLUMS The hold which Mr Larkin has established on the working classes of Dublin is only to bo explained in ono way (says the special correspondent of the "West minister Gazette" of November 19). There is in the Irish capital a nass of poverty and wretchedness lie like which is scarcely to be quailed anywhere in a great ity. I know of no big town, with the exception of Belfast, in* which the contrasts in condition are thrust so painfully before you. The richest streets in Dublin streets with fine shops, glittering theatres, and splendid monu ments, present the spectacle in these bitter days of ragged children, feet and legs bare, and with uncovered heads, shouting the newspapers and wandering about shivering from huad to foot. I have seen young girls with garments so thin that they almost exposed the bare flesh , beneath, going and coming through the wealthiest parts of the city. Women wander bare-beaded, their dark shawls wound about them, and often the b...

rOR YOUNG FOLKS. AT THE HALL. "Ely poor flowers are quite wither ed," little Ida said. "They were so beautiful yesterday evening1, and now the leaves are all dead. What is the reason?" she asked the student, who - was sitting' on the sofa, for she was very fond of him, as he told her all J manner of pretty stories. "Why do I the flowers look so wretchcd to-day?" j she asked again, showing him a nose-1 gay, which was quite dead. I "Why, don't you know what's the I matter with them?" the student said, i ? "The flowers were at a ball last night, and that's ? why they hang thcii > heads." "But how can that ? be, for the flowers cannot dance?" little Ida said "And why not?" the student an : swcrcd. "As soon as it gets dark, and we are all asleep, they jump about merrily enough; almost every night thev have a dance.'' What the student told little Ida about her flowers appeared very funny to her, and she thought much of it. The flowers hung their heads, because they were tired, after da...

THE NOULEST MOTIVE IS THE TUULIC GOOD FRIDAY, JANUARY 9, 1914. Two haystacks owned by Mrs Nolan and Mr J. Keay, of Lord Clyde, had a narrow escape of being destroyed by : fire on Tuesday. It seeuis Mr Keay was carting in, and at mid-day took the horse3 out, leaving the empty waggon on the side of the road. Shortly after smoke was seen arising from the waggon ; it was found that part of the bagging tacked on the body to catch the loose wheat was on , fire. This was torn away and unfor tunately thrown 011 the ground, and immediately ignited the grass, and the fire spread with alarming rapidity. A number of willing hands went to the assistance of Mr Keay, and by dint of hard work beat the fire out within a few yards of the stacks. In the mean time the fire in: tho waggon again showed itself," and liad a good - hold of the body of the waggon, which was much damaged; the wheels wero saved by being taken off. Besides the damage to the waggon Mr Keay lia.l a large quantity of grass sepd bu...
