D)I. MONTEISSORI IN AMERICA Dr. Maria Montessori, who has given her name to the new system for educating children, is at present in America (says "The Westminster Gazette" of January 2). She is no doubt pleased to find that there are nearly one hundred schools that hlave adopted the Montessorl method in the United States, and that many pupil teachers have learnt her system. She lays particular stress on the physical improvement that comes from her me thod. Speaking of the Casa del Bam bini ht Rome, she says:-"The most marvellous discovery was the physical improvement of these little children. Now. lwe never served food in the school.

THE LUCKY SNEEZE KING OF SOTTO VOCE (From "The Westminster Gazette") A king of Sotto Voce once had the Misfortune to offend a vizard of his acquaintance, with. the result that he vas visited with .the Curse of the Six lategories. This was quite as big a thing as it looks, for it )neant that six Lttempts would be made upon the king's person by a specially chosen demon. At the first atempt the king would lose'his right hand; at the sec ond, his arm; third,. his left. hand;. fourth, his left arm; fifth, his right leg; and last, his left leg. The king, having had some experi ence of wizards and their pet curses knew that his only chance was to make the demon-in-charge aim. his shafts crookedly. This can done by a smart mortal, but it is necessary to de cide upon a' plan quickly, for demons are always very keen to. begin their work.. They are, howdver, not- al lowed to aim until tiey have sent a letter tb their intended victims; that is Zne .of the laws relating to curses which you will ...

THE necessity for a day service of electricity in Kerang is becom ing more urgent every year When Swan Hill and other places of no Igreater and in some cases of less importance have a service for everyone of the 24 hours of the day, it is quite natural that our Stownsmen should begin to think there is " something rotten in the State of Denmark." The subject has been discussed in the Kerang Shire Council, on the public plat form and in the press from time to time in recent years without any satisfactory results., We still follow the "even tdnor of our ways " and no progress is Smade.

THROUGH THE TELESCOPE MOON'S DISTANCE MEASURED. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 3 March 1914

THROUGH -THE TELESCOPE MOON'S DISTANCE MEASURED. A learned professor, with nine letters after his name has become a small boys' hero (says "The Daily Mail," of December 31). Professor H. H. Turner, D.Sc., D.C.L., 1.R.S., Savilian Professor of Astronomy in the Unversity of Oxford, who yester day delivered his second lecture at the Royal Institution, London; has caught the imagination of the small boy. like a Jules Verne or a Stevenson. He has overcome the firmly rooted conviction of the young that all real professors must be dry, elderly, and grim, and that a lecture is a dull sort of thing. Professor Turner possesses the geni ality of a benevolent uncle. He under stands just what appeals to small boys and disguises his science in a delightful "make up." Yesterday he was sur rounded by balloons, aeroplanes, kites, telescopes, and continuing his subject, "A Voyage in Space," he took his audi ence up towards the moon, which is 240,000 miles away. But how do we know the msoon is this di...
