GOOD HEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 26 March 1914
GOOD HEALTH. Following are lines by Sir Alfred Power: "There's a skin without and a. skin within, A covering skin and a lining skin; But the idner skin is the skin without Double inwarda and carried through out; The mouth, the nostrils, the windpipe and throat, Are all of them lined with this inner coat, Which. through every part is made to extend Lungs, liver and bowels, from end to end. The outside skin is.a marvellous plan For discharging the dregs of the flesh of man; While the inner one takes from the food and the air What is needed the waste of the flesh to repair. With clothing and exercise keep your self warm, And change your clothes quickly if drenched in a storm;

TEACHING HIM ECONOMY. "My boy," said the old man; kindly, as he Ipoked the'back parlor doorway a'bout 11 p.m., where his prospective son-in-law, Charles, sat courting Eliza with the gas turned on full force, "are you aware that the moon is shining brightly this evening? Just see," and the old man turned the gas out.."Just observe, my boy, how the moon's yel low rays light up this room. Truly it is a glorious spectacle. But come with me a moment; I have something in the cellar which I wish to show you." Then the old man took his bull's-eye lantern and led the way down the cel lar stairs, closely followed by Charles. "My boy," said he, softly, as they reached the cellar, "I know you love Eliza with all the strength of your no ble heart, and you love to meet her often, and let me say that I have no objection whatever to your doing so; I simply request your presence in this cellar that I might give you a much needed and useful lesson in economy. Observe, young man, the little box over i...
Nothing To Be Surprised At. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 26 March 1914
Nothing To Be Surprised At. Mr. Upton Sinclair, the American author, was telling a story of a game of poker in the Wild West. A tender foot, looking on, saw one of the play ers deal himself four aces from the bottom of the pack. The tenderfoot whirpered indignantly to another on looker: "Did you see that?" "What?" asked the other. "That swindler dealt himself four aces!" the tenderfoot hissed. "~Taal," was the astonished reply, "wasn't it his deal?" ... t - m -
A REMARKABLE MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 26 March 1914
A REMARKABLE MEETING. A strange adventure is recorded by a correspondent of a London paper who, meeting a medical friend, looked in at a Fleet-street tavern to talk things over. Here he met another friend, a master mariner: After an informal introduction his two compan ions talked of things in which he took no interest, and he joined in another conversation. Half-an-hour had elapsed when they informed him-profusely grateful for the introductioin-that he had intro duced two brothers! Ti'hey had been separated, not ,by quarrel, but by the cstranging years. The mariner, as a weakly boy whose l:fe was despaired of, had ben sent to a relative who lived mean counties away, by the sea. He bad never re visited the scenes of his youth, or been seen by his parents and brothers. Forty years had passed since the brothers had met. The world doesn't judge a man by his own clothes, but by his wife's. A broken heart takes about three weeks to mend in town and five in the country. No man is so greed...
Bargain Hunting. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 26 March 1914
Bargain Hunting. An amusing story is told in connec tion with the early days of Sir J. B. Robinson, the South A~frican million aire, who has been figuring promin c-ntly in the Law Courts. He was crossing the Vaal River in 1869, looking for diamonds. He asked the natives if they had seen any "pretty stones," and at last he found a man who had a diamond. It was a small stone, and the prospector offer ed him £10 for it, but he refused to part 'with it. He increased his offer to £12, but still the man refused. "What will you take for it?" he was asked. "Twenty goats," was the firm reply; "nothing less." "I sent off to the nearest farm;" says Sir J. B. Robinson, in telling the story, "and bought twenty goats for £7 10/-, and so got possession of my first diamond."

THE PSEUDO-LANGUAGE OF MONKEYS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 26 March 1914
THE PSEUDO-LANGUAGE OF MONKEYS. Concerning the supposed language of anthropoid apes, Professor Boutan has recently taken up the question and arrives at a; negative result. I, will be remembered that Dr. Garnier came to thile conclusion that monkeys have a language analogous to human language and express themselves by signs as we!l as by sounds which they emsit. According to Professor Boutan, ilere is only a difference of degree be' tween this alt hluman speech and not one of kind. lie observed the sounds lmade by a biggon which he had cap tured when- young, land his experi ments cover mnore than five years. He finds that tihe animal can produce only ,ponltaneous and instinlctive sounds corresponding to a state of satisfac :tion or the like, or again to a state of uneasiness or fear, also great ex citment, and the sounds do not appear to correspond to a real language, bui ra~hsr to what he calls "pseudo-lan guage." While s3unds of real lan g?lage are acquireld by education, those of ...

PAINTING THE EIFFEL TOWER. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 26 March 1914
PAINTING THE EIFFEL TOWER. The Eiffel Tower changes its dress every five or six years at a cost of from £2800 to £3200. flhe date is at hand when fifty painters will find occupation for three or four months in covering the 180,000 square yards of its surface with a new coat of paint. The shade has yet to be decided up on. The Eiffel Tower started twenty two years ago in orange, wore red in 1893, golden yellow in 1899, and silver white on the summit and chrome yel low at the base in 1907. There are people who would vote for-an invisible shade of khaki for the coming renew al. The tower is now used as a -wire less telegraph station, as a post for an electric device-to prevent hallstonms, and as a guiding mark for aviators.
