"Ah, that's Catarrh," said the Doctor, "Chronic Catarrh. It- is quite incur able—there is no cure for Catarrh known to Medical Science." Such is only too frequently the kind of consolation afforded to cat arrhal sufferers, and it can he prov ed that the number of people of all ages who suffer from catarrh, or from its correlated maladies and troubles is simply legion. Millions of the earth's inhabitants are gripped by the nose with this disease, witi .h is one of the most unpleasant cf all the ailments which nfllict mankind, and is the forerunner of almost every other disease—so that "Take care of your nose and your nose will take care of you" has become one of the most vital truisms of hu man life.

Egypt's First Lady Barrister. Tluit. Egypt is .rapidly advancing in tho emancipation of women is shown in the i'nct that Madame Na thalie Nichel has been admitted to the Bar. Though she has only been fully qualified n short time, several important oases have been put into her hands, and in each case she lias achieved remarkable success. She not only has a very wide knowledge of tho intricacies of ISgyptian law, but she also has a ready flow of language, at onee picturesque and impressive. Quite young, and very beautiful, she makes a striking pic ture as she stands pleading in the courts, clad in her olliciul legal robes, while judge und jury, and many noted legal lights, follow her reasonings and pleadings with the utmost attention and interest. She gives promise of soon standing on a level with the most sought-after und eloquent lawyers of the coun try. As she speaks, her gestures are few, but her black eyes flash with earnestness, und her features are now solemn almost to severity...

A Hanging Fern-Holder. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 23 April 1914

A Hanging Fern-Holder. 4. Ferns hung up in the window or in the hall always look wonderfully pretty, and in the accompanying sketch our artist shows a handy little holder for this purpose that is very easy to make, and can be car ried out on the same lines in any size to meet requirements. It consists of a circular piece of wood about, half an inch in thickness, in which three small holes have been drilled quite close to the edge. The diagram on the right shows this. This piece of wood is smoothly cov ered with silk, which can be turned over {it the edge and fastened on underneath withi any strong ad hesive. Then to the three holes strands of fine wire are fastened and the ends carried upwards and twisted together into a small loop, by which the fern and holder may be hung up. A glance at the sketch will explain this. The edge of the holder is trimmed with a fringe of bends chosen of a colour: to match the silk and arranged ; so that it hangs in points. After the holder has been sus...

Hens as Barometers. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 23 April 1914

!tf!ens as Barometers. I rfc A poultry-fancier near Durham has produced curious results by al tering and alternating the food given to his fowls. . | It is known to many who have reared canaries for the, market that , Cayenne- pepper, put into their food, 1 results in a notable difference in , the character and shade of their plumage, giving the feathers a smoothness and reddish tinge which adds very much to the sum for which the birds may ordinarily be sold. I If the same ingredient be added to ' the diet, especially of white hens which have beon hutched from care- j fully-selected eggs, their feathers be come pale rose, and they flush to a brilliant red when the weather is damp and a storm approaching. These hens thus become veritable barometers, and the progression of colour from pale to brilliant is so exact that a scarlet hen stalking about the barnyard is regarded as certain prophecy of n storm which may be as much as twelve hours distant.

Developing a Sixth Sense. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 23 April 1914

Developing- a Sixth Sense. O The most amazing development of tho twentieth century so far has been tho realisation that a "sixth sense"—that is to say, some sense other than taste, smell, touch, hear ing, and sight—is beginning to operate powerfully upon our lives. "The influence of mind over mat ter" has come, to bo a catch phrase, and people are greatly interested in discussing the several ways in which this curious influence shows itself, but, strangely enough, little attention is given to the idea why | the human race is developing this j sixth sense. Without going into biology closely, it may be remembered that touch i was the. first sense to be developed, i then taste, and the othor senses in j varying order in different organ- j isms. Hut. at the same time it must [ not lie forgotten that, all these senses came, in response to n need. Touch, [ for example, developed with free motion taste with the require ments of a diet that had to bo selected. So this sixth sense does not s...

Treasure Hunt Fails. £ _ MUD INSTEAD OF £1,120,000,000. The exploitation of treasure trove (says the "Daily Chronicle")' is sel dom successful, though the lure of such undertakings is a constant temptation to the speculator, and the adventurer. Another addition to list of failures had now1 to he made in the winding up of the company, formed 13 years ago, to raid the sacred lake of Guatavita, r.i Colum bia. The reputation of this lake as a depository of jewels and orna ments of vast wealth has persisted for centuries, and has been frequently referred to by travellers, from Father Simon to Humboldt and Mowbray Morris. The lake is situated in the mountains, about half a day's jour ney on horseback from Bogota-, and lies about 10,000ft. above sea level. The origin of itB reputed vast wealth is the practice attributed to the ancient Indian tribes residing in the locality of casting vessels und ornaments of precious metals, and also offerings of gold dust and pre cious stones, into the wa...
