Your Feet Weigh More when You are Asleep. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 22 May 1914

Your Feet Weigh More when You are Asleep. -v : You often hear a person complain of Ills , head feeling heavy after a long sleep. As a metter of fact, "his head is considerably lighter, and his legs and feet just that much' heavier, when ho gets up llntu when lie went to bed. Experiments have shown that if a man goes to sleep on a bed sus pended exactly at tho middle point of his weight his hcacl begins to tip slowly up and his feet go down.. This is duo to tho fact that when we sleep the blood in the brain goes off to the. other parts of the body. The moment the brain wakos to life again it draws tho blood back. Another of the curious facts brought to light by scientists who are fond of trying to solvo tho mystery of sleep is that when one is fast asleep some part of his brain or several parts of it may at the same time bo awake. A man may walk, talk, sing, or solvo mathe matical problems, and yet at the same time be safely in the land ot nod. 1 7 It. seems hard or impossible to de ...

NATURE'S MONUMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 22 May 1914

NATURE'S MONUMENT. It is seldom, perhaps, that Nature erects a monument to a person's memory ; yet in a small cemetery a few miles east, of Nashville, in Brown t.'ounty, may he found an object hearing that distinction. J More than seventy-five years ago a man named Allcorn mot with an accident which resulted in his death, nnd. ho was buried in the cemetery near his home. The coffin wus hewed out of a part of a poplar tree and made in to two sections. \ few years later a small sprout began to shoot from the crude coftin, nnd not long: after wards a small poplar treo began to spread its branches over the grave. Within a few years it had grown to large proportions, and during the long period since it first appeared above the ground the tiny pcplar sprout hns grown into a tree that measures several feet In circumfer ence and towers above all others in the vicinity. Its branches spread far out in all directions, and many perhaps who pass near by are attracted by the towering poplar, thou...

THE DAIRY EXPERIMENTS WITH CREAM SEPARATORS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 22 May 1914

THE DAIRY j EXPERIMENTS WITH CREAM SEPARATORS. The general opinions held with re gard to speed and temperature dur ■meuuu "oiaxioa—err—tnc umueieiiy ui Missouri. The experiments showed that an increase in the speed of a separator leads to a higher propor tion of skimmed milk and to a high cr percentage of fat in the cream, and, within ordinary limits, the higher the speed the less is the amount of fat remaining in the skim med milk. It is further declared that, con trary to general belief, a reduction in the temperature of the milk oc casions a higher proportion of skim med milk and a small amount of cream with a higher percentage of fat. Tho effect is said to be still fur ther emphasised when the separator is adjusted to deliver cream with a high fat content. 1 A third conclusion which the in vestigators adduccd was that the amount of fat in cream varies in di rect proportion to the composition of the milk. The ratio of cream- to skimmed milk is not influenced by a variation in the...

Smart Children with Stupid Parents. .— : ♦ . The contention of many physicians and reformers that feeble-minded par ents should be protiibi ted from marry ing, because they bolievo that , the off spring of such unions is bound to be similarly afflicted,- is not. always J borne out by facts'! . Indeed, it fre quently happens that normal chil dren, who are in no., way mentally J or physically deficient are born - to feeble.-minded parents. And this has puzzled . not a fow physicians and scientists. It would seem, .howover, according to Dr, Charles TDav.cnport, a eu genic expert, that .. the explanation is quite simple. Ho points out that tho ..mentally ./loficient aro not all deficient '. in^.^lrejsartie. way. The term "deficient" is" not" only applied to those who are , stupid, owing to. lack of; brain power, but is often ap plied to criminals of every degree. Thus if a deficient man marries a woman who is deficient, it does not ; follow that their deficiencies are of j the same natu...

Forged for Love. 4 Thd first bank-note forgery was committed for love's sake. Richard William Vaughan, a solicitor's clerk, wished to marry liis employer's daughter. One of the conditions imposed was that he should pro duce a thousand pounds and settle half of it upon his wife to be. He took a month's leave of absence, presumably to obtain the required money from his mother, but in stead, spent the time in making an engraved impression of a £20 Dank of England note. .» With fifty of these sham notes, he presented himself at the appoint ed time, and the marriage arrange ments wore proceeded with. Unfor tunately, he required some ready money, and put two of the false notes into circulation. They were promptly challenged and Vaughan arrested.
