MARVELLOUS ECHOES. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 18 April 1914

MARVELLOUS ECHOES. 4 Probably the finest echoes which the world knows is in' the cathe dral at Pisa-whore the Leaning Tower is. Sing two notes, and there is no reverberation. Sing three, and they are at once, taken up by the walls of the edifice, swelled, prolonged, and varied till they seem 1 as a divine harmony from, some majestic organ.* ' There is a cavern in Finland in which, if you test your lungs to the top of their' capacity, there will an swer you such horrible roarings, moanings, and mutterings that you will be glud -to rush out_ "In ' abso lute terror. , The cutting down of .trees in .'a cer tain locality on the Hudson River spoilt a splendid echo. A word shouted there was repeated forty two times. But undoubtedly the niost extra ordinary natural echo in the world is to be heard by the side of a small lake in Bavaria. On one hand rises a perpendicular cliff several thousand feet high, while on the other side is a dense forest. If a pistol is fired on the lake, the woods s...

Wireless Telegraphy Anticipated by Wild Indians. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 18 April 1914

Wireless Telegraphy Anti cipated by Wild Indians. The Catuquinaru Indians, in the valley of the Amazon, have long had a wireless telegraphic system which enables them to communicate with each other. The machine consists of a hollow piece of hard palm w-ood filled with sand, rubber, pieces of wood and hide, ami fixed in a socket of sand, hide, resin, and rub ber. This is struck with a club of wood coated with rubber and hide. There is one of these instruments hidden in each habitation or maloc ca, and the maloccas are about a mile distant one from the other, and all on a direct line north and south. The instruments are in tune .with each other, and, when struck with a club, the neighbour ing-ones .to the-north and - south, if not above a mile distant, re spond to_or echo the blow. To this an. Indian answers, by striking the instrument in the malocca. with winch it .is desired to communicate, which blow in turn is echoed by the instrument originally struck. E.xh malocca has its own 's...

GRAFTING HUMAN EYES. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 18 April 1914

GRAFTING HUMAN EYES. T .*W Another 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 by cutting out the affected 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 young man , had almost lost the sight of one; eye through a burn from hot lime, j The cornea-that is, the transparent j part of * the coat of 'the eyeball which c...

AMERICA'S PRESIDENT. + STORIES ABOUT MR. WOODROW WILSON. Old friends call him "Tom," his former scholars at Princeton Uni versity "Daddy Schoolmaster," the crowd "Woody" or "Doc," and un kind critics "The, Saint."

Darwtin apparently possessed a very poor appetite, and one day Mrs Darwin consulted with her cook as to the means by which it might be/ tempted. "He does got seem to fancy ordi nary food," she said. "Try to think of something." _ , The cook looked up and down and twirled her apron. "If you'll excuse the liberty I'm taking, ma'am, 1 should say ihat master would be able to take his food better if he got something to do. Idle folks is never hungry." "But your master is not an idle man," protested Mrs. Darwin, indig nant at such a charge. "He is never idle. In my opinion he works : too hard."

CHAUFFEURS MUSTN'T SMOKE. Declaring that the habit of smok ingcigaretles or cigars, while in charge of an automobile, wiis. re- ? sponsible for many accidents, the municipal authorities of Berlin have forbidden chauffeurs to smoke while on duty. The order applies not only to all chauffeurs driving taxi cabs, but also to anybody, whether prince or peasant, who sits at tKe steering wheel of a motor car. The rule has caused extraordinary ex citement, but it is enforced with impartial severity. We produced mimical evidence some time ago to show that smoking while motoring quickens the action of the heart in a most extraordinary fashion, ' Hi! ~*

Surprising Changes in Star Clusters. ORION TO BE OVERTHROWN. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 18 April 1914

Surprising Changes in Star Clusters. ORION TO BE OVERTHROWN. . 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. such starry changes. ' N One of the most surprising results -of the cross 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 be 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 Xong period of time will be required to produce a very great transforma tion, but it is going on all the time, and in some cases a few years ' sudico to render the effects 'mea surable with ' astronomical instru ments.

He gives the following iccount of a Chinese dinner to which lie had the honour to receive an invitation : The £r«t course consisted of seaweed boiled. Then followed a course of shreds of cold meat in jelly ; another of mush rooms ; still another of salad onions then thin slices of sausage apparently followed by a dish composed of eggs. These were succeeded by crawfish tails, and the final course of cold dishes was evidently a long fronded seaweed. Be tween each course a servant filled small cups set by each plate with hot rice brandy. The first of the hot courses served was meat dumplings, which Frost (my companion) believed to be dog, and' objected.to on that account. The rest of the dinner consisted of about a Smzeu courses, and was completed with, nuts, sweetmeats, and champagne. Next day 1 was taken sick, and was very ill for two weeks...

Can We Acquire Beauty, [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 18 April 1914

Can We Acquire Beauty, Tins is .a quoaiion that will touch the heart of every lady reader, and, though it may not be answered to every lady's eutire satisfaction, there is certainly a good deal of interest iu knowing how other women have done it-or imagine they have. So that^ " Everylady's Journal"' for April hits upon a live topic when it gives . the views-and the portraits-of a number of leading women on " How to Be Beautiful." It seems that beauty of figure is the great consider ation rather^ than the beauty that is skin-deep, and we learn from the ladies who have given their views to " Everylady's journal " that beauty of both body and face will follow per fect health. This, therefore, is the object , to aim at, and the means sug gested are many and various. Miss De Vere, the sprightly comedienne of " The Dandies," for example, advo cates dancing, and says-that even the oft-condemned Tango has its advan tages as a health exerciser, xuiss .Murray, a" Scottish champion, votes for ...
