Of Interest to Mac. Thoro was 110 doubt about tho fact that Jack MacFaddy was a Scotsman. Last 5'car, when journoying to tho country on an important orrmul, ho left his purse, containing nearly £100 in gold and silver, at the railway station -from which ho started. Ho telegraphed tho fact on his ar rival, and tho purso was kept till his return a month later. It was a young clork who handed Jockio !MacF. his weo purse with the "spondies" as ho' net foot out of tho train, and certain wild hopes were making that young man's heart beat a trifle unevenly. But our canny Scot counted his money unheeding, and when he'd finished ho looked up long and sus piciously at the young num. "Isn't it right, sir?" stammered tho latter, in bewilderment. ' ? "Riclit-rieht ! It's rlcht enough; but whero's the interest, mon V was INIacFaddy's stern retort.

FOOLHARDY GUIDES. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 19 June 1914

FOOLHARDY GUIDES. The guides who conduct tourists to Vesuvius often go to ridicu lous risks to amuse their, patrons. A favourite expedient is to take an egg and put it into a small fis sure in the mountain sicje to ho boiled by the heat. The tourist is not allowed to leave the path and go to the fissure, so does not re nliso that the guide, in order to reach a point where tho trick is practicable,- lias to waile across a layer of lava which is so tbln that it "may break at any moment. Should it do so, tho man's legs will go through into actually mol ten lava, with fatal results. 'lho Italians seem to think nothing of the risk, and gladly undergo it to earn a franc, or oven for bra vado's sake, to amuse tho tourist who is employing them. One of the most daring exploits on record is that of a stcoplo climber, who, some years ago, con ceived tho novel idea of crJebrnting the Kmperor's birthday by climb* ing the steeple of St. Stephen's at Vienna, and thcro hoisting a flog.

EYEBROWS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 19 June 1914

EYEBROWS. ilye-brows that are lighter in col our than the hair are usually a sign o£ weak constitution, but eye-brows darker than the hair gcnerallj go with a vigorous mind and body, more especially when they are bmhy and tufted. As a general rule the closer the eyebrows lie to the eyes, the greater are the powers of concentration, though sometimes such brows are as-! sociatcd with a suspicious nature. j Well-arched eyebrows arc a sign of . artistic, agreeable temperament, but when they lie far away from the eyes : the owner is often most unreliable. | If the eyebrows, instead of droop- J ing at the end, turn upwards to wards the temples, their possessor is ! likely to have a strong sense of hit- , mour, and is likely, to make a name as a comedian, or as a humorous artist or writer. I From time immemorial, eyebrows j that meet across the nose have been i associated with a passionate and even a murderous temperament. Persons with little or no eyebrows are almost invariably not only w...

THE WORLD'S BIGGEST BRIDGE. A project is on foot for buildiug a bridge across tho Hudson" Rivor, uniting Now York with Now Jer sey.

Where screws are driven into soft wood and subjected to considerable strain, they are very likely to work loose, and it is often very difllcult to make them hold. In such cases the use of glue is profitable. Mako the gl'ie thick ; immerse a stick also t half...

Ogilvio explained to a largo audioncc of young folks in the thea tre of tho Royal Geographical So ciety at Burlington Gardens, it does not melt, or it melts very little, even during the summer. So tho layers of snow are constantly ine'rousingi When tho slopes aro* steep, the accumulated snow-falls ns an avalanche; but on a high tablo land there is no such escape for it. But the snow, falling year after year, does not build up a great snow mountain, because tho lower . luyors aro pressed . down by. the great .weight, the air. is squeezed'out, ami - granular ico is formed. This downward motion is the os-. sentinl feature in tho .glacier.
