She breakfasted ou essences, lunched on powders and tabloids, while she found her dinner in cubes and tubes. Having decided to consider meats, vegetables, and sweets out of reach for tho time being, she set about Stocking her larder, as if she were thinking of a drug store instead of a pantry. She found all kinds of chem ically prepared foods, beginning with pulverised soup and ending with des sert iii capsules. describing her mar keting for the experimental week, Miss Oooley said it was like shopping for a-doll's house.

ATMOSPHERIC CONDENSATION. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 1 July 1914
ATMOSPHERIC CONDENSATION. The condensation of inoiaturo in tlie atmosphere—i.e., the initial step in the •formation of clouds, fog, rain, hail, and snow—has been explained for more lhau a generation by the presence in the air of myriads of minute (mostly ultra microscopic) "dust" particles, each of which was supposed to sorvo as a ccu trc of condensation. Tho well-known instrument invented by Aitkeu, in 1SS8, in which, after a small measured vol ume of air has been cooled by expan sion, the resulting droplets of water are inspected through a microscope and counted, is know as the 1' d\ist-counter,M because it has been assumed that the number of drops formed in this process represents tho number of particles of **dust" in the given volume of air. This idea is intrenched in the very latest works on meteorology in tho Eng lish language, though qualified by the admission that in a highly supersatu rated atmosphere, such as may bo pro duced at will in a labatory but hardly .occurs in nat...
HEAVILY INSURED LIMBS. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 1 July 1914
HEAVILY INSURED LIMBS. The recent accidcnt to Mine. Pavlova in Xcw York, which was at first repor ted .to bo somewhat serious, recalls the fact that, like Paderewski, whoso fingers arc insured for a colossal sum against injury, the charming dancer has a policy which protects her against loss from ac cidents to hor limbs, and espocially her i'oet and dainty toes, upon which her art and her income alike' depend.. It has not yet been learnt how far the present accident comes under tho terms of this policy, although it is understood that the disablement of'oithor of the big toes would mean payment of £6000^ and of ono of the lesser toes £3000. This, however, is by no means an ex ceptional insurance. Nijinsky, who re cently appeared at tho Palace, and Mile. Genee have insured themselves for seve ral thousand of pounds against acci dents which would prevent them from dancing, while M. Do Bioro, the famous illusionist, followed tho example of some well-known musicians and insured his Jingo...
GYROSCOPE MOTOR-CAR. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 1 July 1914
GYROSCOPE MOTOR-CAR. A motor-tar with a full-siza body, but only two wheels, has been constructed by a Birmingham firm from tho designs ot Dr. P. Scliiloivsky,, ami has, it is understood, proved satisfactory in pre liminary trials on tho road. Tliu two wheels are placed iu line as in an ordi nary bicycle, and tho machine is kept upright by moans of a gyroscopic device controlled by two pendulums, which, when the car inclines to one side or tho other from the perpendicular, brings tho gyroscope into action to oppose the tendency to ov'orturuing. The inventor claims that a mono-track motor-car run ning under gyroscopic control can attain 'a giveu speed with a'much less power* fui engine,'and with a lighter frame and body than would bo needed for a four-wheeled ear of tho same rating; that as it requires only a very narrow path it is particularly adapted for use iu new and undeveloped countries; that tho smoothness of running is greatly increased; that tho cost of Manufacture can be' r...
CORK PAVEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 1 July 1914
CORK PAVEMENTS. A new cork pavement is favorably ro giii-fled by tho municipal authorities in various cities. it is noiseless to the tread, but at the same timo durable. Jt is a variety of asphalt paving, in which cork is substituted i'or the sand of the ordinary kind, preventing slip periness, and deadening to an even greater gogrce tho vibrations from pass ing vehicles. fcSuow does uot fi-eev.e to it, and as it is non-absorbent its qualities seem much superior to those of wood pavements. Tt is said to "stand" on heavy grades on which the ordinary asphalt cannot be used at all, and still allord a perfectly safe footing. For schools and hospitals 'it would seem to be the ideal pavomeut, especially for .courtyards, playgrounds, and streets around the building. JFor tlioso pur poses, tho noiselessncss and cleanliness of tho new pavement givo it a marked advantage.
