Graytown Jottings. Miss Dewsnap, who has been for the past two years bookkeeper at Oddy's store, and who has re linquished her position, was one day last week invited to after noon tea by lior lady friends aud presented with a handsoiuo initialled handbag. The far-reaching effects of the European war is.seen in the fact that the Oosterfield antimony mine was closed on Monday afternoon. Tenders are invited for the erec tion of the telephone line from Graytown to Moormbool West. About three-quarters of an inch of rain fell last week and. groatly benefited the district. Another such rain would be very welcome. Some mysterious lights have been lately seen in different parts of Cherrington at night, but no body seems to have ventured to make any investigations for fear they might bo carried by German or Austrian spies.'

The filial match to decide the premiership of the Junior Associa tion was played on Cohen's ground on Saturday afternoon in the pres ence of a large number of spectators. The Nagambie Juniors have proved the most consistent combination this season of the four teams comprising the Association, and experienced little difficulty in defeating Wahring on Saturday, thus winning the pre miership for 1914, and we congratu late the boys on their success Mr I,. Mason also presented a silver cup for competition amongst the •junior teams, which, however, has to be won three times by one club before becoming its property.

Hunger Makes Your Brain Heavier. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 7 August 1914
Hunger Makes Your Brain Heavier. Everybody Is acquainted with the dull, heavy headache thai accom panies an empty stomach. Fre quently. whoa a meal is skipped owing to stress of business or some other unavoidable cause, the only feeling of discomfort experienced is a headache. Professor Uaftaele Paladlno has made some interesting experiments with aninmls which would prove that this feeling is occasioned by in creased pressure on the hrain. The substances which are contained in hrain tissue are very different from the dements Which built, up tho rest, of the body, and many uf them, such as lecithin, arc soluble in ether, but not in water. Professor t'ulndino's experiments with dogs who were killed after a ten-days' fast shows that the ether contained in the brain diminishes with every day of the fiud, while the water contained In the brain increases proportionately as the ether decreases. Now the specific gravity of ether is a little more than two-thirds that of water, so that the br...
