It is » matter of considerable phychologoeial interest to note that, the danger drom an enemy's fire so stimulates vigilance that nerves are tense with exertion and the mind is relieved from dwelling upon the ordinary dangers of keeping an aeroplauo on an even keel rrnl meeting overy gust. In other words, snouting in actual warfare seems &lt;to bo a splendid euro for nervousness. The aviator must llv with the assurance of a bird, and he does so for fear of itho enemy's riflo lire. A striking in »tace of this pslichological phenomenon is the fate of Dr. Jules Uonstantin, a French aviator in the Bulgarian ser vice.

SORE THROAT. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 7 May 1914
SORE THROAT. "An.ounce of prevention," is is.said, ,;is worth a pound of cure"; and cer tainly the old adage is self proven ii\ tins ease of sore throat. Prompt atten tion givon to iirst symptoms will in all probability avert the threatened catas trophe. It ■ is ."generally" heralded by headache, chilliness, and a dryj rough feeling in the throat. To produce a lltorough sweat is the most simple way ' lo break up a cold, and this may be ac complished by a hot^bath immediately before getting into bed, wrapping one self in warmed blankets and taking" a very hot drink, lemonade, etc. One tea spoonful of common baking soda to i a glass of hot water, or salt water in the same proportion, makes a capital gargle, and is one which can be obtained ah a few moments' notice. The gargle should be as hot as can bo borne, and used every half hour till the inflamma tion subsides.
POST OFFICE COMEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 7 May 1914
POST OFFICE COMEDY. LLigii 'tragedy turned to comedy and coinedy to farce at a post office in "West Loudon recently. Shortly before live o'clock a young mail entered. Ill bis hand was an open letter, delicately perfumed, 011 faintly tinted paper. The subtle fragrance of the letter drew the attention of the cus tomers, who noted also the- somowhat agitated angle of his hat and a certain wildness in his eyes. Making swiftly for the telegraph counter he scribbled on form after form, crushing them in succession and throwing them aside.- Finally, with au air of sombre satisfaction, ho threw the last form across the counter accompan ied by a sixpenny piece. The girl behind the counter picked up the form and read it quickly. - JmIfomif» v. , - - "Thirteen," replied the clerk. "This —pointing with her pencil—"should be two." Unconscious of the interest taken by some half-dozen customers, the young man took up tho telegram. "Xou might as well charge 'forgive' as two. words.'' He read the 'te...
SOME PROBLEMS IN WHEAT FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 7 May 1914
SOME PROBLEMS IN WHEAT FARMING. (Written specially lor tlie "Farmers' Gazette" by Mr. J. H. Refsliatnrel. Adam Smith wx-ote: "Agriculture "is. the propor business of nil new colonies, the industry of agrioulture is the otic, on which a country must depend for defence, health, strength, and povm-.uv one,)." hand out of cultivation means a s'icer loss t.o the national wealth, as well as a loss of occupation in tho country, and a congestion of labor in cities. George Washington, in lus address to Congress in 1790, said, "It will not be doubted with .reference oither to industrial or national welfare, th-ii. agriculture is of primary import ance. In proportion ns nations ad viu.co, in population and other cir cumstances of maturity, this truth b>' oon oa more apparent, and renders the cuh ivation of tho soil moro and more an aspect of public patronage.

UNIQUE CHRISTMAS PUDDING. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 7 May 1914
UNIQUE CHRISTMAS PUDDING. Cue ol' the most remarkable Christ mas puddings on record was the ono made by the lato Lord Wolaeicy and a brother officer to celebrate the Christ mas spent in the Crimea. Theso are tho details: A box of 'tigs did for fruit. Suet was unobtainable, so they usod rancid grease. There was no Hour to be had, so they made some by ponud ing up ship's biscuit with a pestle and mortar. The latter articles were also improvised—a .Russian round shot and ] a piece of an exploded shell. When the mess was properly mixed it was tied in a towel and placed to boil.. An order to hurry to the trenches cut short this operation, however, and the fato of the pudding hung for a moment in doubt. .Either it had to be wasted or eaten half cooked. It was eaten, and Wols eley had to retire some time later from the trenches urider doctor's orders.

"SHOPPING'.' [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 7 May 1914
'SHOPPING'.' From.-'Berlin7 comes a statemoiit that an unfortunate shopkeeper who charged a- lady sixpence for the trouble she had given when she had tried- oh many Iiats and then left without making a purchase has_ been sent to prison as guilty-of "oxtortioh.."This suggests the ethics of the/ subject of shopping as it is carried on i 11 "England. A writer in a 'contemporary makes out a good case' for Tradesmen and assistants against the inconsiderate and troublesome cus tomcr. - T\vo departments of the modern shop are especially victimised, he says.

[?] How Some Secured Success. "Become a Patentee." [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 7 May 1914
How Some Secured Success. "Become a Patentee.' 1. Cultivate and perfect your ideas as to improvements and inventions. ".Experiment. The worid is eager for something new, which, however sim ple it may be, will save labor, or ex pense, or do things better. Let it be more convenient, or promote pleasure or safety, or do away with faults, or reduce waste. The person who gets public opinion of such an invention is on the road to wehlth. He will cease to bo a servant; he becomes a proprietor. People who . handle things in every day use are the natural inventors of better things, and the natural. capital ists of to-morrow. 2. Study the subject of patenting. Bead the splendid advice that Edison gives. Learn the procedure as to pa tenting in the chief countries,—then secure your own legal monopoly for your rights by becoming a parontee. 3. If that workman or foreman, or your ingenious friend has produced a elever invention, put him on the track about patents by telling him where he can obtai...

WOMEN DENTISTS AT £2000 A YEAR. Lugland has at least one profession for women that is hot overcrowded, and that is dentistry. Women, so ready to enter medieiue, are, strangely enough, little represented here, said Miss Jj. M. Brooks, Secretary and War den of the Loudon School of Medicine for Women. "Wo have only live girl students for the dentistry course at present. Last year the number was three, and the previous year two. i'rior to that there was a gap of some years without any students at ail. "Looking at the thing from a bust-, ness point of view, it is a splendid investment for parents of girls. The course extends over four years, and the joint fees amount in all to £180. The studies arc pursued at this school and at the National Dental Hospital in Urcat Portland street.
