EYES THAT FOLLOW YOU. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 30 May 1914
EYES THAT FOLLOW YOU. ' Have you ever wondered why the eyes in portraits painted in oils fol low you? There is something uncan ny about it. Years ago superstitious people were afraid to go into a pic ture gallery where portraits of an cestors were to be found. Now we know that the thing is simply an op tical illusion. , To produce such an effect the eyes of the person represented in the por trait must be looking directly to the front, and not towards one side. Jn such circumstances the pupil of each eye is necessarily in the middle there of, with as much "white" on one side as on the other. , Obviously, this relation does not vary at all with the position assumed by the observer. The • latter may stand far over on either side of tho picture, and yet, from liis point of view, there is as much "white" on one side of each eye as on the other, and the pupil still is in the 'riddle. Such being the case, the painted imago continues to look directly at him. In the palatial mansion of a wel...
WHICH END OF A POST SHOULD BE UP. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 30 May 1914
.1 WHICH END OF A POST SHOULD I BE UP. j It is a common belief among farn. I ors that a post will last longer if-set ' in the ground the reverse of tlie way j 11 grew in tho tree, in otlur words, . with the butt end up. Accordingly, one sees many posts, especially end and gate posts, with the small end down. The supposition is that sap in a tree is always ascending, or at le ist that it is easier for tho sap to I go up than down. Consequently, it is argued, turning a post upside down tends to prevent tho rise of water, helps to keep the wood dry, and, therefore, renders it less liable to de cay. As a matter of fact, sap or water can flow in either direction with equal facility and the popular notion to the contrary is incorrect. Careful experiments on the relative durability of post timbers have been made by the Ohio Agricultural Experi ment Station (says the "Scientific American") and the above questio;* v/as considered. One fence in par ticular contained 15G black locxlst posts, o...

LIVES LOST BY LAUGHING. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 30 May 1914
LIVES LOST BY LAUGHING. An accident, said to be the most ex traordinary on record, occurred at some .oilfields in the Baku district of Russia, on the borders of the Cas pian Sea. One of the big "gusher" oil wells became 'choked, and, with a ' view of blowing it clear, a number of 'iron drums full of nitro glycerine were brought down by rail from Df.i bend, and deposited ov^r night in a large shed, which was used by the men as a sort of canteen. The steward of this establishment,' a Greek named Darios, opened .0110 of the drums for some reason best known to himself, and "decante:i" a. small quantity of the dangerous li quid into a long thin glass used for mixing vodka. This he placed on a shelf behind the bar. Shortly after wards there entered a workman named Borkovitch, who was famous for the boisterous hilarity of his man-' • ner, and especially for his loud, res onant laughter. The sight of nitro-slycerino in u vodka tumbler so excited his risibil ity that he gave vent to a series...
