SAVED ONE MILLION LIVES. There recently celebrated his eigh tieth birthday, at Brampton, in Derby shire, araan ot' wham the world at large has keard little, but'to whom tlia world at large, nevertheless, owes much. I Mr. AYillia.m B. Itobinson is the i gentieman hi question. He is tho head | of tho firm ef Robinson and Sons, whifch 1 employs over a thonsand hands, and is the:inventor o£ tha patent absorbent J and antiseptic cotton wool, which plays 'so all-important' a spart, in modern sur-. i gcr.v- ■ j It would bo. difficult to esttmato thfc I number of lives that h'avo been savsd by this same absorbent cotton wool.

ROMANCE OF ROYAL JEWEL. [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 10 March 1916
ROMANCE OF ROYAL JEWEL European Power* may b« pretty hard up when the war cemes to an end/'and aii manner of schemes will i>r«bably have to be adopted to scrape monoy together. .-Will the Eoyal treasures of the War Lord and Austrian Emperor be sold or pawned? The question is asked by a writer in the New Orleans Times Picayune, who adds: it is inte resting to know that the crewn donned by the monarch of Austria, which was made originally for Stephen of Hun gary, some eight. centuries ago, has been stolen, lost, and pawned. On one occasion it iya3 pilfered by a queen, who lied across the frozen Dan ube with it, and there, being in need of ready cash, she pawned it for 2S00 du cats. When it was finally tracod andv recovered, it was placcd in a. fortress in Huuga.iv, and guarded night and day.. At the time of tie revolution it was buried in a forest to prevent its being annexed by the Austrians, and it re mained uiuler the soil for nearly a, hun dred years. ; There is no doubt that t...
NOTHING MORE TO INVENT. [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 10 March 1916
NOTHING MORE TO INVENT. Someone poring over the old files iu the United States Patent Office, at Washington, the other day, found a let ter'written iu 1823 that iliuatratos the * | limitations of- the human imagination. It was from an old e'mployeo of the I'ateut.Offiua, ollering his resignation to the head of the department. His rea son was that, as'everything inrcutabie. •' had bee* invented, the patent office >vould soon ba dissbmtiiiuod,'and there would be no ^further need of his ser vices, or the services of any of his fal- ; low-clerks. Ha, therefore, decided to . leave before the blow fell. Everything inve»table had been in rented! The writer of tflAs letter jour neyed in a stage couch or a canal bost. iie had never'seen a train or an ocer.n greyhound. He read nt night by handle-light, if ih,e road at all in the evoking; «uore likely 'he wont to bed soon after dark, and did ull his road ing by daylight. He had never seen, a house lighted by illuminating gas. The ire and in...

I-., I " HYMN OF HATE " SUNG. A midshipman was taking a party of captured German officers -from a U boat, whieh had just been snared, and which was being towed, astern by an other pinnace.'. 'The officers sat huddled astern, and seemed very uneasy. . One of them asked tho midshipman if thoy were to be shot, and was much relieved when he replied, "No, you were doing your duty, and we do not t.roat. our prisoners like that." With increasing uneasiness, tho Gorman offi cers begged that tlicy might do or'give [ something to show thoir gratitude. - At last the midshipman said, '' Oh, 'all right, then. Sing us the ' Hymn of Hate.' " Whereupon the Germans, ^apologising that " they had nod ihoch voices," ' stood "up unsteadily, and solemnly' howled the "hymn" through, to the intense delight of the everr of tho pinnace.
MOVEMENTS OF THE MOON. [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 10 March 1916
1 MOVEMENTS OF THE MOON. j Although astronomers have boon en deavouring for over 250 years to ascet'- I tain the correct, movements \of the J moon, they are still far from having ■ solved the problem. The astronomer royal, in his report of- the "work at Grcenwieli . during.the past .year, calls j attention to the increasingly big dovia- I tion between the calculated position of the moon in the sky and its real posi tion, as shown by the Greenwich obser vations.. This deviation has lately, been -increasingvin a serious .manner, the er ror last year being -more than, twelve times as large as it was twenty years .•ago, the 'average annual ineroaso.

TOMMY'S FRENCH WELCOME. [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 10 March 1916
TOMMY'S FRENCH WELCOME. In the early days of the war, when English .troops lyerc first landing in France, they wore often greeted by. thoir allies in the French fashion—with eager kisses, and: embraces. An Ameri can who witnessed the debarkation-of a troop of. tall ' English cavalrymen, laughed to tearfulness—so he reporto'd afterwards—at , the spectacle of small and excited Frenchmen-excitedly wav ing little English flags, -and reaching; up, or actually, jumping up, to ismack, the• 'abashed! Britons.- first 011 one 'chcek and then on the other. The victims of the afTectionatc onslaught endured'-it; patiently, although unhappily; occa sionally a. resolute sufferer would even yield to the - point of reciprocally pat ting a French back. But no 'kisses were received, even when bestowed with laughing audacity by pretty girls,; dasliing out of the crowd for the pur pose, and hastily dashing back. The. 011I3- difference was that the man-kissed dragoons looked tired and miserable;-, the gi...

THINGS THE POLICE SHOULD r KNOW. ' an american view.! ' I, .The best line Solon produced in his I:clay, was '*>Know thyself." . -A.Tthui\ "Woods, Police Commissioner of New York," is .1' firm believer in all that this implies, but he would also have the men composing tho.police forco avail them selves of a thorough knowledge of. .others. That is the idea, conveyed in a ipamphlct . which Commissioner Woods lias issued. For years it has boon the.experience of ihigh police officials in New York, that criminals .have effectively covered tlioir tracks, solely because the first po^ liceman called to tho'scene of a crime : has -not.thoroughly.noted..conditions;' or has failed -to -'make the diligent inves tigation which would place him in pos session of 'facts'essential to bring about an arrest. !
