TOBACCO AND BRAINS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911

TOBACCO AND BRAIN5* Some curious statistics as to the effect of tobacco on the young smo ker-have been gathered by Dr. Mey lan, of Columbia University, and those who are responsible for the guidance of students will be interes ted in the conclusions that he and other investigators find themselves compelled to adopt. At Clark Col lege it was'found that out of 201 students, 46 per cent, were smokers. The smokers slightly exceeded the non-smokers, and 26 per cent, of the smokers won athletic prizes, as against 16 per c.ent. of the. others. But what are we to concludc from the fact that 68 per cent, of the non smokers took University honours as compared with 18 per ccnt. of the smokers? Can it be that the non smoker of the college age is men tally superior to the occasional and the habitual smoker? Of 223 stu dents at Columbia University 52 per cent, had the smoking habit. Two per cent, of full marks divided the two classes at their entrance to the University, but at the end of the firs...

HARMLESS NICOTINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911

HARMLESS NICOTINE. Dr. Parant, a Frenchman, who some years ago produced a tobacco innocent of nicotine', has now invent ed an apparatus for distilling the smoke from pipes, cigars, and cig arettes. The disintoxicator, or dis tilling apparatus, is of very simple construction. It consists of a slen der piece of wire, on which are fixed a number of small,' perforated discs. EacR disc has two holes. The wire is inserted in the stem of the pipe, or cigar or cigarettehold er, and the smoke 3oes not arrive in the moutfi until after it has tra versed the series of chambers form ed by the discs that is to say, it is condensed in passing through the holes, which are not superposed, but alternate. Dr. Parant claims that by the use of' his apparatus the noxious elements in tobacco are re duced to fifty per cent. As at the end of' a certain time the smokedis tiller becomes foul and clogged, the ingenious; doctor has provided a gauge for cleansing it. This gauge is filled with alcohol, and when t...

FELLING TREES BY ELECTRIC WIRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911

FELLING TREES BY ELECTRIC WIRE. A Berlin inventor, Mr. Hugo Gantke, has designed a simple de vice for the felling of trees. The trunks are cut by the friction of a steel wire about one millimetre in diameter, which is able to cut through a tree of about 2oin (50cm.) in thickness in six minutes. The wire, which is .carried to and fro by an electric motor, is heated by friction on the tree to such an ex tent as to burn through the tim ber, the result being a cut which is both smoother and cleaner than that effected by a saw. The wire will work satisfactorily on the thickest trees without the insertion of wed ges into the cut, and the trees may be cut immediately above or below the ground. In the latter case the stump may be left safely in the soil. The motor which actuates the wire is installed outside of the range af fected by the fall of the tree, and when electricity is not already avail able, it can be generated by a trans portable power plant consisting of a 10 h.p. petrol motor ...

CHEESE MAGGOTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911

C'-.cESE MAGGOTS. There is a fly called Piophila that lays its eggs in chcese, and there are people who prefer their cheese wnh these maggots thrown in. G. Alessandrini has been studying the larvae, and feeding: dogs with them. They can pass right through the ali mentary canal (both of man and dog) without being the worse, but the canal is apt to be the worse for them, for they scratch the delicate mucous membrane with their minute oral hooks. Alessandrini put some for sixteen hours in 70 per cent, alcohol, and others for thirty hours in petroleum, but they survived all right;

WHY SHE CRIED. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911

WHY SHE CRIED. . . Ina came from the country on her fifth birthday to visit her cousin ^May. At night they were put to bed early. An hour passed when heart-breaking sobs were heard from the children's bedroom. 'What's the matter, children?' asked May's .mother, entering the dark room. From under the bedclothes Ina sobbed out! 'May won't give me any of her sweets.'' 'But May had not sweets,' re plied her aunt. 'I know that,' sobbed Ina; 'but she said if she did have sw ts she wouldn't give me any.' - j

FORTUNE TELLING. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911

FORTUNE TELLING. The fortune telling of the gipsies, or 'dukkering,' as they themselves call it, is a wonderful thing, declares a writer on the American gipsy in the 'Century,' and a power un deniably supernormal which reads 'nncf nrpcont nnrl fnftirp vpr wlcli an' all ye want to know-' But, though the Romany's gifts are mar vellous, they cannot strictly be said to be related to .psychical phenom ena. Yet they are as interesting, being delightfully human, and as mysterious and baffling as East In dian jugglery. The Romany's usual method of divining the future is by palm, though it is sometimes by cards, sometimes by dropping coins into clear water,- and again by certain charms, varied by trifling sleight of hand performances. In the gipsy's palmistry there is no- book learning and litWe 'science.' although she professes to attach some importance to the lines of the heart and life. For the lines 'and* mounts gipsies have their own explanations, which sometimes happen to coincide with...

Random Readings. SHELLY THE HENPECKED. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911

Random Readings. ? — SHELLY THE HENPECKED. In the 'New York Times' liter ary supplement , Ernest Hunter Wright, in an article on the death of Dr. Frederick James Furnivall, throws a new light on the honie life of the poet Shelley: 'Dr. Furni van d/'iciuici wda a. suigcuiiy uui touched literature at one point — he attended Mary 'Godwin Shelley for a fune. He found it no privilege to wait upon that lady. She was for ever ordering Shelley about like a slave, and wearing his- life out with her whims and tempers. It was 'Shelley to do this,' or 'Shelley to do that' from morning to night, with never an endearing word and seldom a polite one. So the elder Furnivall decided on some advice for Shelley and though not a man of phases, he spoke his mind as best he could one day when the poet had dropped in to watch him make pills. 'Deuce take it all, Shel'.ey,' he said. 'Ytm're putting up with too much... nonsense from your wife. You ought to ; show her some .'backbone. You're a man Shelley — w...

THE RHODE ISLAND RED. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 24 January 1911

THE RHODE ISLAND RED. The breed, which is rapidly grow ing in popularity is, as its name im plies, American, and is one of the latest products of the U.S.A. In colour it is not unlike the Buff Or pington, but darker, and in shape and carriage no whit, inferior. It has the reputation of being a splen did layer of large brown eggs, and an idea of its table value may be gathered from the fact that the average male bird turns the scale at 8Jlb. At present the number of breeders of tbe Rhode Island Red is limited, so there is a good open ing for anyone to make a speciality of selling eggs for sitting.

THE HAPPY ZULU[?] [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 24 January 1911

THE HAPPY^ZULUJ The Zulu in the estate in which he is born and reared has been said to be 'the happiest man on God's earth,' and although civilisation is doubtress a blessed thing it often seems altogether anomalous to at . tempt to apply it to the 'native' or 'Kaffir'--— as he is commonly but erroneously termed. The Zulus, as a race, were, in the days of Chaka, Dingaan, and Cetewayo, an example to the world — even to the staunch est Christian — in the morality of their living. They had to be, for the one and, only alternative was dea'th ; and everybody knew and re cognised this summary administra rf.^'^of»an^^3Krj^e^JaW^__He who

CAVE DWELLERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 24 January 1911

CAVE DWELLERS. Grottoes and caverns are used, more or less, as shelters by primi tive people, and thus inhabited caves are most frequent in Africa. A con siderable number of natives make their homes in caves along the southern shore of the Strait of Gib raltar, and in some of those eaves aj-evipund the... polished stones and arrow-heads of the'Stohg'lA&e. Tro glodyte .villages are frequent in the Tebessa territory of Algeria, one of which, at Djeiirf, 250ft. above the gorge of the Wadi Hallail, is reach ed by steps cut in the rock. The inhabitants of the Tunisian Island of Galite are cave dwellers, . their habitations Being grottoes . which they* have dug out of. lime stone for ancient burial caverns that they have enlarged. The subterran ean villages of Matmata and of Medenine, hewn out of the rock, are in Southern Tunisia. A Chris tian monastery built -ri underground in the twelfth century still exists at Goba, Abyssinia. The enormous cavern, discovered several years ago w...

THE EARLIEST COINS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 24 January 1911

_THE EARLIEST COINS. Gold and silver were exchanged in the form of bars or dust for many centuries. Even to-day^ the Chinese prefer their gold' and silver in bul lion form. In the great African, desert a sale is for so many ounces of gold dust. The credit of making the first/ gold coins is given to the Lydians by Herodotus, and the first silver coins are supposed to have been minted on the Islan-J of Egina, 860 BiC. ^ There are to be found iif the various large, museums of the' world coins of Persia issued 350 B.C. The earliest coins known in Palestine were called Darick, or King's money (from Darius),, and were coined 450 B.C. In the year 139 B.C.

CAMPHOR DISTILLATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 24 January 1911

CAMPHOR DISTILLATION. ?' Camphor distilleries are low buildings of mud brick, built as near as possible to the camphor trees, and the odour is so aromatic that it can be detected two miles off. In each building there are a dozen fires. On each fire is a kettle of boiling water, with a perforated lid. Fitted to the top of this kettle is an iron cylinder, filled with camphor wood chips of the size of a little finger. 'Fitted to the top of the cyl inder is.an- empty inverted jar. The steam 1 of the. boiling water passing up through' the cylinder extracts from the/camphor wood its oil. This oil, mounting still upward with the steam, settled like brine on the sides of the inverted jar at tlie top. And this brine, when the fire goes out, dries into a substance like frost or snow. White and aromatic, the frost-like substance is the crude camphor- It is scraped off the sides of the jar and refined and pressed in to attractive shapes.

STARS AND STRIPES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 24 January 1911

STARS AND STRIPES. The thirteen horizontal stripes on the American flag represent the thir teen original States of the- Union, and remain constant. At first there were also -thirteen stars, but their number — which corresponds with the number of States — has been slowly increasing since, in 1791, the fourteenth star was added to sym bolise Kentucky. The greatest ad dition to the stars in any one year took place in 1889, when four were added in honour of the new States of North and South Dakota, Mon tana, and Washington, since when four more have been emblazoned on the flag— Idaho arid Wyoming (1880), Utah (1896), and Oklahoma (1908). When the number is brought up to forty-eight to include Arizona and New Mexico, the offi cial arrangement of the stars will be six rows of eight stars each.

FISH AND SLEEP [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 24 January 1911

FISH AND SLEEP Many varieties of fish, both fresh water and marine, are able to drop off to sleep just like human bVings. Some do not possess this faculty, however, for though they may rest their weary fins they have no need for forty winks. Sleep is the rest of the conscious brain, and as the brain of a fish is ridiculously small in proportion to its body, the demand for such rest is almost negligible- ,
