OPPOSING FORCES' " Why don't they use Lux ?" A little boy said, As he tried to draw His shirt o'er his head. Whilst I grow bigger, My shirt is shrinking, And the opposing forces, I am much thinking Will end in disaster ' To that shrinking shirt. I can't shrink to suit A shirt shrunken short I must hare room to grow— While my shirt says, no. The shirt must suffer, If it still acts so. But the shirt needn't shrink. And I may still grow— For Lux is made to wash Woollens, white as snow Without any shrinking, Soft as eiderdown. Lux is sold in packets, Everywhere in town. Twopence is the prioe, And the price is low, If Lux'll give me room, In my shirt to grow. Why do they do it ? If they'd only think To wash wool with Lux, Woollens will not shrink. Won't Shrink Woollens. Ltvar Brother* Ltmttad, ® Sydney.

LAURENCE STERNE "ALAS! POOR YORICK!" [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 7 March 1914

LAURENCE STERNE ] "ALAS! POOR YORICK!" | two Hundred years ago to-day. Lau rence Sterne, the immortal author ot "The Sentimental Journey" and "Trls-. tram Shandy," was born at Clonmel. and the event is to be commemorated this evening: by a dinner at the Authors' Club. Mr Andrew Hope Haw kins will preside, and Mr Edmund Gosse is to be the principal guest (says the "Westminster Gazette" of November 24). Although Sterne was born in ire land, there was nothing Irish in his connections or descent: and it was solely owing to the fact that his father, who was an army officer, hap pened to be stationed there with his regiment in 1713 that his dlstlnguishf-d son first saw the light of day in the Emerald Isle. On the other hand, the family v.'&s essentially English, and for genera tions had dwelt in Yorkshire. Sterne's ( great-grandfather was in his day an eminent divine, and rose to the posi tion of Archbishop of York. In 171S .the family returned to their native county, and with the...

EXPENSIVE ELEPHANTS NEW REGULATIONS FOR HUNTERS. The. while man is no longer free to shoot elephants at his jA'ill and plea sure in French West Africa (says the Paris correspondent of the "Daily News and Leader"). The Governor has Issued severe provisional regula tions, pending the promulgation of a decree on this, subject. Every European who has a regu lar licence to carry arms, and who wishes to hunt elephants, must make a declaration and pay a tax fixed by the district governors, which must not be less than £40. This is only good for .one year (or less, if tho decree is Issued before the lapse of a year), and only entities the holder to kill two elephants. Every elephant shot in excess of the two must be de clared, and paid for at the rate of at least £20 per head, and not more than five in all may be killed in the year. The spoils of an elephant killed in self-defence must be handed over to tho district authority.

JEWELS PAWNED - Messrs Hancocks and Company, jewellers, sued Messrs J R. Atten borough and Company Ltd., pawn brokers and jewellers, to recover a necklace, which had been pawned, or. alternatively, damages for its deten tion, before the Lord Chief Justice and a special jury (says "The Daily Mail," November 25). Mr Shearman, ICC., in opening', stated that not a word could be said against the defendants. The ques tion in the case was who should suffer loss in consequence of the sudden de parture under dramatic circumstances of a man who had obtained jewellery which he had not paid for and had then pawned ? The man in question, Mr Lance Campbell, had been connected with some South American company, said counsel. IIo bought from the plain tiffs and paid for £3000 or £4000 worth of jewellery. He lived in Mount street, Mayfair, and owned a motor car. Up to the time he disappeared the plaintiffs had nof, the smallest rea son to doubt his honesty.

BACILLI IX CLOTHES DUST In the latest issue of the Buffalo "Sanitary Bulletin,"'Dr. P. E. Fronc zak mentions some experiments de vised to show the dangers of clothes' dust. Clothes soiled with dried tuber culosis sputum were brushed in such a way that guinea-pigs inhaled the dust. Garments having sputum from two to four days old infected all guinea-pigs. In proportion to length of time over four days the infectiousness dimin ished, though one pig was infected from sputum dust that had been dry ing on the cloth for sixteen days.

PANAMA CANAL [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 7 March 1914

PANAMA CANAL Without pomp or inaugural cere mony, and unknown to anybody ex cept those persons directly concerned, the Panama Canal has been navi gated from the Atlantic to the Paci fic for the first time by a steamer under its own power (says the New York correspondent of the "Daily Telegraph" on January 9). The vessel thus honored is—the old French ship (Alexandre Lavalley, built in 1884. She is a steamer of 1200 tons, has a single screw and funnel, and is equipped with three big cranes. The Alexandre Lavalley started her trip' from the Atlantic entrance early in December, and, after • making various stops on the way, to help to clear away small landslides, pro ceeded through the Pedro Miguel and Miraflores locks to the Pacific, thus making the first trans-isthmian voyage. Although May had been set as the month for the official opening of the canal, it is not believed, here that the waterway will bo available for general commercial use by ships of large draught until several month...
