There was no denying the fact St. John's Wort was spreading at an alarming rate, and how to combat it was the problem. The Bright shire had spent during the past two years upwards of /510 on salt, which amounted ap oroxiro...

The Open Column. BRIGHT FREE LIBRARY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 16 February 1917
The Open Column. BRIGHT FREE LIBRARY. TO THE EDITOR. SIR,-As a stranger in your charmingly picturesque town, I am impressed with the many manifestations of the pnblic spirit of the residents. This makes me all the more unable to understand the proposed closing of the above named institution. Public support is not forth coming, so the committee of management has no alternative but to close the doors. There is no need for me to advance arguments why this must not be allowed to take place; the advantages of a live library are too patent to all. The out standing fact is that the sympathy of the residents with the institution has died out. Why this has happened I don't know. But the threatened burial of the remains has, as usual, excited sympathy. All are sorry-again, as usual-and ask "What can be done?" I would suggest: Let it be born again. I know that I am voicing the feelings of the people on the matter when I say that the Bright folk want their library. Many have suggestions, and ot...

HOME HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 16 February 1917
HOME HINTS. Paste your oilcloth on to the kit chen table with ordinary flour paste, and you will find that it wears twice os long as when tacked on. The oil- j cloth does not move and wrinkle when wiping it, and so does not crack and soak- up water. White' silk garments should never be put away wrapped in white paper. The substance that is put into the paper pulp to bleach it tends to turn white silk yellow. Blue tissue-paper is the best preserver of the pure cplor of white silk. «.:? To mend broken-china, mix well a teaspoonful of alum and a tablespoon ful of water and .place in a hot oven until quite transparent. Wash the broken pieces in t ot water, dry, and while still warm coat the broken edges thickly and press together very quickly, for it sticks instantly. If the eating of fish makes brains, it is the catching of them that malces liars. Messrs. W. Reynolds and Son Pty.

BEAL TREASURE ISLANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 16 February 1917
BEAL TREASURE ISLANDS. There are quite a number of Islands scattered about the globe whereon buried treasure exists. And people are always trying to find it. Quite a score of attempts have been made, for instance, to unearth the treasure alleged to be buried on Cocos Island. Yet so far the adventurers have reap ed no reward for their toil. Fully £50,000 has been wasted, again, in futile attempts to recover the "pirates' hoard" reported to be hidden near the lip of the crater of an active-very active-volcano on Pagan Island, in the Ladrone Group. Still, as a set-off against many fail ures, there have been some few suc cesses. There is n&lt;- doubt, for in stance, that a Liverpool sailor named John Adams unearthed treasure to the value of between £150,000 and £200,000 on Auckland Island some years back; nor that William Watson, a shepherd, recovered in 186S nearly a ton of gold that had been hidden on one of the Queen Charlotte Islands. Likewise, two runaway seamen, named Hand...

CUTTING A BULLET OUT OF THE HEART. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 16 February 1917
CUTTING A BULLET OUT OF THE HEART. Dr. Maurice Beaussenat, who had already extracted a piece of grenade from the right ventricle oE a man's heart, told the French Academic de~ Sciences recently of a second similar operation performed with success. A corporal wounded at Eparges had been treated for peritonitis, and then had been operated on for appendicitis. He continued to suffer in-various ways for more than a year, when a radio scope revealed the pressure of a shrap nel ball, moving in time to the heat ings of his heart. Supposing this to be in the pericardium or sac about the heart, Dr. Beaussenat "went in," as the surgeons say, and saw that the ball was actually in the right ventricle near the lower end. The heart was drawn out; its wall was cut open between two loops o. wire; the ball was removed and the heart sewn up again. Six months later the heart had healed so perfectly that there was not a sign of irregularity about its pulsations. Honesty must have been indigenous with t...
Big Cheques. The Value of Shipa. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 16 February 1917
Big Cheques. The Value of Shipa;': The cheque for £2,068,000 which is said to have beea paid by the Com monwealth Government for the fifteen steamers bought by Mr. Hughes, the Federal Prime Minister, during his re cent visit to London, represents more than three times the pre-war value of the vessels. But the deial, though a big one, is not by any means the big gest in British shipping. Apart from the agreement covering the Morgan Combine Companies, Sir Owen Phil lipps, on April IS, 1912, drew a cheque on the Bank of England for £5,173,572 in payment of the bulk of the ordinary shares in the Union-Castle Line and the goodwill of Messrs. Donald Currie and Co. Fourteen years before that date, however, a cheque, representing the largest amount that-until two years ago-had ever, probably, chang ed hands in London, was drawn upon the Bank of England by the Chinese j Minister in Londond, to the order of j the Japanese Minister, for £11,00S,- j 857 16/9.

Very Weak. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 16 February 1917
Very Weak. At a village'fete a number of young . men arrived at the schoolroom too late for tiie first- sitting at tea. They were afterwards accommodated at an extra table by thomselves, and the vicar's wife busied herself in giv ing them every possible attention. On looking around she discovered that Jack was apparently without tea, so she at once hurried around to his side to inquire how such an .over sight had occurred. Judge if her surprise when she found Jack's cup and saucer carefully placed upon the form beside its owner. "Jack," said the good lady, in gen uine astonishment, "why ever have you put your tea down there?" "Well, ma'am, I thought it was too weak to stand up, so I let it sit down for a while!"
CIGARETTE SMOKING. It Causes Rise in Pulse-Beats. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 16 February 1917
CIGARETTE SMOKING; It Causes Rise in Pulse-Beats. Cigarette smoking often causes a marked rise in pulse-beats, makes the pulse irregular, and causes a change in blood-pressure, the effects being more marked if the smoke is inhaled, is the conclusion of Dr. John Aikman, of Now York, the latest au thority to endeavor to determine the exact effects on the human body of cigarette smoking. Dr. Aikman's experiments are no more productive ot definite conclu sions than those of many other in vestigators of the past. He suggests, however, that the great increase in .circulatory diseases in the past hun dred years may be attributed to 'smoking, although admitting that in .tlie.face of conflicting opinions "we can sie how far we are from definite conclusions as to the true effects of tobacco." "The effect on the pulse of smok ing but one cigarette was marked," writes Dr. Aikman, "sixteen out of twenty-seven subjects showing an in crease of more than eight beats a minute. In some cases the rise...
£1,371 AN HOUR. Rockefeller Makes £12,000,000 a Year. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 16 February 1917
£1,371 AN HOUR. Rockefeller Makes £12,000,000 a Year. Some particulars of the huge wealth of Mr. J. D. Rockefeller, the Oil King, are given by a New York correspond ent. Mr. Rockefeller, it is declared, is now worth within a few millions of £180,000,000. It is pointed out that this amount may vary- a few millions each day by slight fluctuations on the stock market. Mr. Rockefeller, we are told, does not speculate. He invests, and when the market ^is quite high he- sells When it has dropped to low levels he buys back what lie sold, and reinvests the profit in more low-priced stocks or bonds. The great bulk of his wealth is invested in oil, railroad, banking and industrial stocks. Lawyers who have undertaken the task of calculating just what Mr. Rockefeller is worth come to one con clusion that is noteworthy-that, since the "dissolution" of the Standard Oil Trust under the judgment of the United States Supreme Court inter preting the Sherman Anti-Trust Act, the wealth of Mr. Rockefell...
