DIVER'S ROMANCE "APPLIED PHYSIOLOGY" SALVING TUB "LAURENTIC" " Atriumph of applied physiology" is what "The Lancet" '(London) calls the seven-year effort , almost completely successful, to salvage 25,000,000 dollors in gold from (the sunken Laurentic, a 15,000-ton Atlantic liner. This vessel was taken over by the British Admiral^ ty during the war and converted into'1 an armed cruiser. Early in 1917 she sailed from Liverpool with five million pounds' worth of gold bars for .Halifax, and was sunk by mines off the Donegal coast In 120 feet of water. We read: "Diving operations wore soon, begun the strong room reached, and a little of the gold brought up. A violent . gale then interrupted operations,. and when the divers were able to get down again they found that the ship hod broken up and collapsed, and that the gold was ?buried at the bottom of the ruins. So they set lo work to break and blast choir1 way through the remains, and when operations finally ceased in 1921 moro than 98 pe...
CHAMPION TEA DRINKER [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 1 October 1926
CHAMPION TEA DRINKER Bradley Peach, New Jersey, is re- sponsible for another would-be cham- pion in one Lew Meyerson, who claims to be the greatest tea drinker In the United States. This wonderful person says that he &nbsp; drinks an average of 46 to 48 cups of &nbsp; &nbsp; tea each day, and thereby consumes an average of two and a quarter pounds of tea a week; he drinks it with a little milk, but no sugar. Strange to say, the meal which would normally be expected to provide the chief base of operations for such ex- ploits has played no part in them, for the man has never attended an "after- noon tea" in his life.

WAR ORPHAN MYSTERY Police Officials Predicament [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 1 October 1926
WAR ORPHAN MYSTERY Police Officials . Predicament The French authorities are perplexed over the mystery of Rehe Bouree, a war orphan, who was evacuated from the Aisne Department in 1917, and taken care of by a police official. M. Peltier, Ile was then four years old. Since then all attempts to trace his parents have failed, and M. Peltier now wishes formallyvto adopt him. But he is confronted willi the fact that the child, being neither a foundling nor abandoned, has no legalt existence. It is believed that the child's parents perished in the bombardment of his home by Gerrfian aeroplanes which ac- tually dropped bombs on the convoy.of children, including Rene Bouree, who was being taken out of the danger zone. Many of the children were killed and wounded, but Rene escaped, and, now a boy of 13, he has distinguished himself at his lessons. M. Peltier wishes him io tuite a higher course, but the lad has no birth certificate, and none of his relations can be traced.

C. J. DE GARIS £5000 LIFE POLICY TO BE CONTESTED PERTH, Wednesday. Air. Arthur Haynes, solicitor who in- sured the life of Mr. C. J. D"e Garls for £5000 shortly before his death, states that he has issued a writ against the T. and.G. Mutual Life Assurance So- ciety, 'claiming £5115, on a policy. He claims the £5000 set out in the policy, and £115 as a bonus alleged to be due for the first year. The policy on Do Garis' life, it was revealed, was taken out only seven weeks before the sensational suicide of the latter, at his Mornington home last month by turning gas on. It Is understood that the de- fendant company intends to contest the claim on ground that on the principle of public policy it cannot lie compelled to pay insurance in event of suicide, even though the policy has been assign- ed in. the meantime.

HEROIC'S OWNER Return from Abroad English Turf Conditions PERTH, Wednesday. Mr. C. B. Kellow-, owner of Heroic, who returned from England on the Naldera yesterday, declared that the lacing game in England is booming. Accompanied by Mr. James Scoble, the well known trainer, he visited the prin- cipal stables in England. Mr. Scobie was on the look out for suitable pur- chases, but good horses were not for sale, though one could buy ordinary, soiling platers. If Heroic were iii England," Mr. Kel lovv declared, "he would bring £40,000 to £50,000.
