It was no safe or easy - task on which Hick now udveritured forth, and he realised this as he passed from the house- into the moonlit" street and turned in the opposite direction to that taken by. Captain Volborth ; for his purpose was nothing less than to try to steal an interview with Mary Ferris-to ontor the dangerous pre cincts forbiddon to him by Jason Gore. He bud ninde the resolve long be fore, but bad failed to find the op portunity, since the Russian was with him every evening through those hours that wero most suitable for the attempt. And heretofore ho bad boon merely nctuated by a ficrce desire to see the girl, with no deiiuitc idea of what be would say if he was success ful ; while to-night, after the conver sation witli Volborth, he felt that i urgent reasons existed for, seeking the interview, ami that he had tid ings of hope and chier to communi cate. Nor was Mary tho sole object of his thoughts. Another matter., sprung, j fr...

CORRECTING FAULTS IN YOUNG CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 1 May 1914

COKIUSCWNG FAULTS IN YOUNG . CALVES. One of the most difficult habits to I overcome where a number of young calves nro running iu a loose box 'is thfit of sucking one another, writes an English correspondent. There * is ft wide difference of opinion regarding the results which may occur. Many claim that small quantities of hair arc taken into the stomach, and this is finally matted into a firm ball, which may clog in the stomach or" bowels of the calf, resulting in death. The- reason for this habit of sucking may in some measure suggest a re medy. When we feed calves with milk from the pail, thfy drink so rapidly that they fail to relieve the month of the saliva which naturally1 mixes with the milk, while thej arc suck ing. In order to relieve their mouths of the sccretion which organs of di gestion demand, they will seok some thing to suck which will rid their mouths of the saliva, which haB been retained to a large extent, and their favourite object is some portion of the cnlf nex...

At last lie paused. Only long enough, however, to thrust n card into the lady's hand. Tho bit of pasteboard was certainly a novelty. "My name is Sellum," it read, "of the firm of Blang and Company., sew ing-machine manufacturers, and.I in tend to prove to yon that it is mad ness to defer purchasing one of our unequalled machines." After a long description of the r^iachinc camc the following : "You may plead that you are unable to work a machine. I will remove that objection in fifteen min utes, or in threo lessons. Will call next Wednesday." When the agent called again a six foot man opened the tloor and bland ly remarked : "You're the sewing-machine man, I suppose ?"

Which End of a Post Should be Up? [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 8 May 1914

Which End of a Post Should be Up ? 1 ! It in a very common Ijclicf unions formers that* a post .lyill lust longer* if.set in tho ground tho roverso of 1 tho way It grew in the treo, iti other wonls, with tho butt-end up. Accordingly, one socs many posts, especially end and gato posts, with tho small end down. The supposi tion is tlmt sap in a treo is al ways useending, or at leant that it is easier for the sup to go up than down. Consequently, it is argued, turning n post upsidn down tends to prevent the rise of water, helps to keep the wood dry, and, there fore, renders it less liable to decay. As a matter of fact, sap or water can /low in either direction with oqunl facility and the popular no tion to the contrary is incorrect. Careful experiments on the relative durability of post timbers have been made by tho Ohio Agricultural Ex periment Station (says the "Scien tific American") and tho abovo ques tion was considered.

Sleep Prevents, Not Cures Fatigue. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 8 May 1914

Sleep Prevents, Not Cures Fatigue. + Most of us suppose that we sleep because wc are exhausted. But J)r. i Claparede, the Swiss physiologist, | has just advanced a* new theory, I which is to the. effect that wc sleep 1 in order to avoid being exhausted. The theory% is that sleep, instead of being the result of fatigue, is an impulsive self-disinfection which the body conducts in order to get rid of the waste products before they have time to producc exhaustion. 1 Just as combustion of fuel for the production of heat and energy is always attended by ashes and slag, so the sTow combustion which pro duces fieat. and energy in the body is likewise attended by waste. "Since the senses never voluntarily conic to rest or shut themselves oft from the outer world, a point would eventually be reached when the or ganism would perish as a victim of general nerve exhaustion. In or der to hinder this Nature arranges betimes, i.e., before exhaustion can seriously Injuro the organism, to set in mot...
