The paths they had carved were marked by scores of the enemy's dead, and by many of their own, including brave Colonel Cleland, their leader, and.sov eral of his officers. Yet so overwhelm ing was the tide of attack that the utmost efforts of the gallant horsemen were unable to stem it, and by and by the men, with lance points drenched and gay pennons dyed and torn, were se...

USING BOTH HANDS. CHILDREN SHOULD BE AMBIDEXTROUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Essendon Gazette and Keilor, Bulla and Broadmeadows Reporter — 1 January 1914
USING BOTH HANDS. CIIILDIIEN SHOULD BE .AMBI DEXTROUS. Why the hunian race is riglithanded is onle of the problems that pop Iup again and again. The theory which has found l;eneral acceptance is that propounded by Dr. Ernst Weber, who sought to prove that primitive oman, in his desire to protect the heart, carried a shield in his left lhand, and the ag grossive weapons in the right. Sir Daniel Wilson, however, Icriblcs the right-hlntdednes, of the human race to a very different cause. The centre of s eech is in the left heemi sphliere of the brain, aind Dr. Wilson believes that the movements control ling the right arm. the nerve ganglia for which ore situated near the centres of speech, have developed and matured a:long the sang" lines and at the same rate of progress as language. Rlcc? ds. dating back to primiti e times, parchment.l and Ilie figuIres pelo traced by the ancient Chaldeans and IEgy'ptians, all point to the fact thait even itn those early days the race was right-handed...

"If you are taken to a hospital you would be wiso to accept the house-sur gcon's offer of a bed for the night; you can go in the morning it you ftel better.

DRUNKEN PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Essendon Gazette and Keilor, Bulla and Broadmeadows Reporter — 1 January 1914
DRUNKEN PIGS. - A few years ago, at a New South Wales farm, one of the attractions was a delectable drink ciled mcedd, which the good lady of the house used to make to perfection from bush honey. She used to fortify the mead 'with gin, bit. in one brew she put rather to much of the potent liquid. Two bottles of "square-face" went into a keg instead of one, and the result of over-indulgence led a melr obr of the family into trouble. The farmer's wife lost no time in lemovin-g further temptatio s....,She tipped thle contents of the keg into iicikets, nod,. fsa she' abhorrod waste, she put tilhe mead into the pigs' trough. The grunters acceptea the gilt thankfully. and drained the troulgh to the dregs, but in a quarter of an hour they were the 'most_ drunken lot of hogs in New South Wales. 't.hey danced and squealed and staggered, and a few woent over on their backs and uttered delirious grunts of happiness. Some propped themselves against the sides of the sty and. wondered why the wor...

GENERAL NEWS ----+--- SEVERAL WAYS TO KILL FLIES. Pm To clear a room of flies, carbolic ti acid may be used in this way: Heat a ol shovel or any similar article and-drop thereon 20 drops of carbolic acid. Thi u vapour circulating through the room tl will kill the flies. a A cheap and perfectly reliable fly poison, one which is not dangerous to human life, is bichromate of potash in solution. Dissolov one dram, which can be bought at any drug store, in 2oz of water, and add a little sugar. Put some of this solution in shallow dishes and distribute them about the house. Sticky 9y paper and liquid poisons are among the things of use in killing flies, but the latest, cheapest, and best is a solution of formalin on water.

ARRESTED FOR GOSSIPING. [Newspaper Article] — The Essendon Gazette and Keilor, Bulla and Broadmeadows Reporter — 1 January 1914
ARRESTED FOR GOSSIPING. One of Wisconsin's strange new laws passed by the last Legislature, coo monly known as the Gossip Law, has just recently been apnlied for the first time by the arrest of Peter Kesoski, of Niagara. The law provides that gos sip shall be subject to legal penalties, under the same conditions as slander, though with milder punishment, the amnount of malice in thile conversation being the distingulishing point between slander and gossip. The arrest fol lowsed a charge that Kesoski referred slightirgly to a Miss Rosa Burney.
