WHAT A SOUL WEIGHS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 24 January 1911

WHAT A SOUL WEIGHS. - Experiments to determine the 'live and dead' weights of human bodies, recorded by Dr. Duncan MacDougall, make interesting read ing. Patients were weighted in the act of dying. 'The scales used re corded any increase or decrease be yond the fifth of an ounce. In one experiment Dr. MacDougall placed a man dying from consumption on the scales. The patient lost weight at the rate of one-sixteenth of an ounce per minute until the moment xaE^icalli— jyhen 'the beanr Cnd 1 drop quarters of an ounce in''L\veighfr What was the cause of the sudden decrease Dr. MacDougall after excluding the loss due to escape of breath and fluid contents of the body by evaporation or other natur al means, concluded that the mark ed and sudden decrease was due to escape of the 'soul-substance.' The experimenter extender his observa tions to dogs, but the results gain ed were negative. At the moment of death the dog's body refused to show any alteration in weight.

Germany, have caused the construction of a floating crane provided with a water ballast chamber for offsetting the load which it hoists. The crane has a capacity of sixty tons. The hoist ing engine and boiler installation is so # mounted that the weight aids in balancing the load raised by tht crane.

FACES OF FAMOUS WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 24 January 1911

FACES OF FAMOUS WOMEN. Catherine of Russia was never a handsome woman, and late in life showed traces of dissipation. Mary, Queen of Scots, had red hair and 'crossed' eyes, andj_ in sp_ke of the 'u'eneveicrto' nave oeeh far from hand some. Queen Elizabeth had a red nose and was much ashamed of it. She always took pains to have it powdered before making her appear ance on a State occasion. Madame Racemier was one of the most ether eal beauties ever seen in France. Even in old age, when she became totally blind, she was regarded as a singularly handsome woman. Mad ame de Stael was ugly, with rough, irregular features and a bad com plexion. She was very sensitive in regard to her looks and disliked be ing complimented on her intellectual powers, regarding the compliment as a slur on her lack of beauty.

CURIOUS GARMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 24 January 1911

CURIOUS GARMENTS. Perhaps the most curious dress ever designed was that worn by a lady at a ball in Baltimore which was entirely covered with postage stamps. The stamps numbered ! 30,000, and represented the postage of every civilised country. They were pasted on to a thin foundation. Mrs. Celia Wallis, of Chicago, can lay claim to the costliest dress in the world, for she gave no less than £,~,- 000 for one recently. The Brussels lace alone, which trimmed it, cost £5,000. Twenty-five pounds a yard seems to be a great deal to pay for dress material. This is what the Empress of Germany gave last-year for such at Lyons. It was so hand some, however, that she refrained from cutting it up, and had it used for curtains. Louis XIV. 's famous dressing-gown of cloth of gold only cost half this amount.

ADVICE FOR MOTHERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 24 January 1911

ADVICE FOR MOTHERS. The attention of mothers should be called to the risk of over-caution to their children after they are old enough to play and romp about. A child is happier with a few and sim ple playthings than a multitude of complicated toys. There is no such good fun or good training as making oneself useful in doing little things like work, and it is cruelty to de prive the child of this pleasure and stimulus. Let the brain and body be trained througfi hand, foot, and eye. Give the boys a carpenter's bench ; encourage the girls to do housework. Where possible, let both boy and girl have a little gar den patchj if only a few feet square, and the care of a few plants. A woman in her home, a man in his garden; this seems to be a funda mental type for which we cannot depart without risk of body and mind.

TO PREVENT COLOURS RUNNING IN DRESSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 24 January 1911

TO PREVENT COLOURS RUN NING IN DRESSES. Great care must be taken in wash ing delicately-tinted blouses or dres ses in order fo prevent the colours running. Alum used in the rinsing water will prevent green from fad ing ; a handful of salt thrown into the rinse-water will set blue, and haywater, made by pouring boiling water over hay, is excellent for washing tan or brown linen. Col oured materials should not be wash ed in very hot water, but should be soaked and squeezed in a lather of warm or lukewarm water and good laundry soap. When once colours have run the dyer's art is the best resource for making the goods 're- spectable' again. With careful washing, however, the 'running' can be avoided and the dyer's expen ses saved.

A COMMON ERROR. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 24 January 1911

A COMMON ERROR. One of the most pitiful errors the modern girl is apt to fall into is the lack of courtesy to those in her own family circle. Only too readily do phrases rise to her lips such as: 'I needn't tidy my hair; it's only father come home,' or, 'What does it matter how I look, there's nobody in the house but mother and the boys,' or, 'It doesn't matter if I'm late; one doesn't need to stand upon cere mony with one's own relatives.' All these little attentions, these petty courtesies which, though trivial, count for so much where the friend or lover is concerned, are omitted at home, and yet who can be near er and dearer and more worthy of these attentions than the parents and sisters,, and brothers, of one's own blood? In the 3ays of ' o!d home courtesies were a rule — indeed, ^a law not to be disobeyed ; but now they are rarely observed, and more often does one hear a girl answer her mother's gentle reproofs in tones of contempt such as she would never dream of using towar...

SHOW-OFF CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 24 January 1911

SHOW-OFF CHILDREN. When parents are the proud pos sessors of a very bright and clever child, there is always the risk that ? .they may make of their offspring a self-conscious and priggish little per son. It is natural enough that Tom my or Katie, as the case may be, should be inclined to 'show off' when their attainments are. made the subject of conversation. It is extre mely bad for children, converting them, into self-conscious little men and women instead of just natural 'rough and tumble' boys and girls with a healthy liking for marbles or dolls. Many a child has been Utter ly ruined in disposition by a par ent's openly shown pride,- and the tendency to bring children forward unduly, and to make them the centre of attraction before visitors is all too sadly on the increase. It is, of course, very Hard for the mother and father of a bright child to realise that .the small genius is bound to be less interesting to other people than to themselves, that friends do not visit them fo...

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

THE AGREEABLE GUEST. The agreeable guest is the one who is not always thinking of her own good times. She is ready for any gaiety, but does not look in jured when pleasures are slack. The girl who cannot content herself with a book or fancy work when her hos tess is busy, will always have a sigh of relief drawn for her leaving. The agreeable guest knows how to 'fit in.' She wins the heart of the old grandmother, and has the children at her heels. She cheerfully helps when the maid leaves, or will pre side at a meal in the sudden absence of her hostess. Aggressiveness has lost many a girl coveted invitations. No one hankers for the society of the person who forces her personal ity. It is as possible to be aggres sively agreeable as aggressively dis agreeable. The girl of neutral man ner may not be brilliant, but she is not cranky, officious, hypercritical, nor given to showing off, monopo lising conversation and demanding attention. She appreciates what is done for her, and never thi...

NOTES FOR THE NURSERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 24 January 1911

NOTES FOR THE NURSERY. If children are well fed they will grow well. Good feeding does not mean luxurious feeding, but food which will nourish. Lack of milk generally means lack of growth. Cut a little child's nails very care fully, and in a good shape. Chil Hrpn whose nails' are kept quite short rarely contract the habit of nail biting — a habit which is so difficult tocure. If a baby seems restless in its sleep and there is no apparent reason for this, try turning him from one side to the other. He cannot turn him self, and we know what a relief change of position can be at times. Never omit the child's daily warm bath, with plenty of gentle friction with a Turkish towel. A child who has his daily bath is far less likely to contract an infectious disease than one who is only bathed once or twice a week. Fresh, ripe fruit without sugar is very wholesome, especially if eaten in the early part of the day. So much sugar is often' added, to stew ed fruit as to make it undesirable for s...

For Young Folks. HOW A SULTAN FOUND AN HONEST MAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 24 January 1911

For Young Polks. HOW A SULTAN FOUND AN HONEST MAN. A Sultan wanted 'to find an hon est man to collect the taxes of his realm, but he did not know where to go for such a man, so he con sulted a wise councillor, who advised him to publish abroad his need, and then to invite all the applicants to his palace on a certain nieht to be ar ranged. 'I will show you^the honest offi cer when you ask them to dance,' said the wise man. The applicants arrived at the pal ace in due course, when they were 1 told by an officer of the Court that they were to advance to the Sultan, one at a time, through a dark and empty corridor. As soon as they were all assembler] before the rhrnne -the Sultan said, amiably: 'Gentle- ? ^nen1, I should very much like to see you dance. Please dance.' But all the applicants refused with many blushes, except one man, who danced cheerfully and well. 'That is the honest man,' said the sage, pointing to the dancer. In the dark corridor the wise man had placed sacks of mone...

When these sausages are wlell pre pared, they may be preserved for months, and furnish a nourishing, savoury food ; but when the spices and salt are deficient, and particularly when they are smoked too late or not sufficiently, they undergo a peculiar r kind of putrefaction, which begins at the centre of the sausages, and is , . poisonous. , . ? ?

SUPERSTITION OF FAMOUS MEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 24 January 1911

I expect ed to hear that somebody 1 knew was, dead; so it turns out; who can help being superstitious? Scott believes in second sight ; Goethe trusted to the chance of a knife's striking the water whether he was to succeed in some undertaking ; Swift placed the success of his life on drawing a trout he had hooked out of the water. Several extraor dinary things have happened on my birthday; so they did to Napoleon; and a more wonderful circumstance still occurred to Marie Antoinette. At my wedding something whisper ed me. that I was signing my death warrant. At the last moment I would have retreated if I coui -' have done so. 1 am a great believer j Jn presentiments.
