AT No. 10. A PEF.PL INSILE THEl PREMIERI'S I1OME IN 1DOWNIN( STRlEET. l)owning Street, it has often been said. symnboises our British habit of burying national treasures. This narrow, quiet, fifty-yards cul-de sac is the most famnous street in the world; its name is known and re spected in all the great Chancel Itories and embassies; it is part of the pilgrimage of the globe-trotter; yet he average Londoner passes it laily without noting that he does so. The life of Downing Street dates back to 1663, when the baronet of that nanme built the houses that netv re;,resent the otliciul residences af the Prime Minister and the Chan :etlor of the Exchequer. Its memno rics make an imperishable landmark in the record of British. history. TIhe only meeting between Welling tiou and " e'son took place in this street. Both were waiting for an audience with the Minister for War •and the Colonies. Wellington (then Sir Arthur Wellesley) knew Nelson froni his pictures; Nelson did not know tile soldi...
CLOCK THAT TALKS. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 20 March 1914
CLOCK THAT TALKS. An invention with rather interest ing possibilities has sprung from the brain of a French cluckmiaker. It is that of a gramophone clock which, instead of striking the hours like an ordinary timepiece, announ ces the time in loud, impressive tones. TIo avoid any chance of misap prehension oni the part o[ its hear ers, the clock does not say merely "Three o'clock," for exampnle; it says "One, two. three," in .tones which are sufficient to .-nmake the. lis tener believe that it is actually glar ing at him. If the clock confines itself to call-.: ing out the hour, no great harm will result; but suppose the adver tiser gets the idea of spreading the knowledge of his wares by its aid.'? T'hen we shall probablly' hear .13ig Ben, in ear-splitting." bass, announ cing "One, two, three," and then re marking, in unforgettable tones; that somebody's pills cure biliousness, or that the East Coast is she most bracing spot on the earth.

How Gamblers Cheat. -+-------- SOME TRICKS OF SHARIPERS. Wherever you find the gambler, there, also, will be the sharper ial ways be, and below are given, a few. of the common devices , em ployed by him. A coin which is frequently used for the purpose of cheating at :spin ning coins is an ordinary penny filed round the edge so that the rim is at a slight angle. This coin possesses the additional advan tage of being able to be safely handled by the dupe, for the angle is so very slight that it cannot be detected by anyone not in the se secret. It will be obvious thit when such a coinl is- spuin .upo its edge it will always fall on0 one side-viz., the side whose edge pre sents the smallest circumference.: The popular card game called " Banker" in .the hands of. a sliar per readily lends itself - to trickery.

SHIPWRECKED MAZDA LAMPS AND THE SEQUEL. The "Electrical Times," reported, when the "Oceana" foundered >omipe time back, that a nudiber of cuses (i Mlazda lamps, consigned to Bombay 'l'own Hallt went to the bottom. The repori conCluded by saying that, "dredging operafions are proceeding, and we have not the slighltes doubt, that in the event of one of the hox's coming up, its contents would be found in tact." The sequel to this (vide the "Elee trical Times" six .months later) is in teresting: In a paragraph headed. "A prophecy justified," they state that of 100 Mazda lamps recovered, only 4 per cent. were in any way damaged-the remaining 95 per cent. being in perfect condition. This is yet another proof that Mazdas are mechanically strong, and will withs tan ci rough usage.

WHY DO THEY DO IT? [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 20 March 1914
WHY DO THEY DO IT? -----+---- There are many strange facts about animals which no one has ever seem ed able to understand. A fly, for instance, will crawl to the top of a window-pane, fly back to the bottom, and crawl up again. Hardly ever does it fly up an i crawl down. Hens scratch for food always with the sun behind them. so that its rays will reflect on the tin, parti cles. Yet a blind hen. for whomr this reason does not. lho!ld, always manages to get the sun behlnd her when she scratches. Cats hardly ever lie with their feet to the fire. In most cases they lie instead with their left side turned towards it. Dogs, however, in:ar fably lie with their forepaws to the fire. A mouse overlooks a perfectly safe food supply to enjoy the peri lous pleasures of an unlimited store, You can easily become a snake charmer. Find a harmless little garter snake, keep him in a box in the house, visiting him and ieeding him daily; and in about three months he will crawl to you for food when he se...
