Your Feet Weigh More when You are Asleep. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 22 May 1914

Your Feet Weigh More when You are Asleep. You often hear a person complain of his head feelin.g' heavy after a long sleep. As a metter of fact, his head is ". - considcfably. 1 ighter,_ and 'his legs and feet just that much -heavier; when. he gets up than when he went to bed. .Experiments have shown that if a. man goes to sleep on a bed sus pended exactly . -at the middle point of lus' weight his head begins . to tip slowly up and. his feet go down. This is due to the fact that ?when we sleep the blood in the brain, goes off to the other parts of the body. The moment the brain wakes to life, again it . draws the blood back. Another, of the curious facts brought to light by scientists who are fond of trying to solvo tlio mystery: of sleep is that when ono is fast asleep some part of his brain or several parts of it. may ;.at the same time bo awake. , A man may walk, talk, sing, or solvo mathe matical problems, and yet at. the same time be safely in the land of nod. It seems hard or i...

A Huge Stadium. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 29 May 1914

A Huge Stadiur Like nothing' else more than the Roman Colosseum is the huge sta dium contemplated for the College of New York. This is the gift of Adolph Lewisohn, a copper million aire, and is designed to be a cre dit not only to the college, but., also to the great city itself. The stadium will be 400ft. long and .';r,0ft. broad, and the great tiers of seats will take up half an ellipse, like the Roman Colosseum. Thero will be seating room for G,500 per sons and standing room for 1,500 more. From any seat the specta tor may see the baseball game or the football or the track races, or witness a Greek play. ,Tlie land slopes to the east. Spec tators will enter at the top of the tiers and walk down to their seats. A great gallery at the rear banked with coluinhs will provide the stand ing room and complete the picture. This is to be painted in Fompeian red to add "to the illusion that New York has been transported to Koine. The games or the plays will be framed in a picture, as it we...

A Tango in the Heavens. STARS WHICH WALTZ INTO SPACE. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 29 May 1914

A Tango in the Heavens. 1 STABS WHICH WALTZ INTO SPACE. To the great regret (says the London "Daily News") of a cheer ing crowd of holiday juveniles, Professor Turner delivered the last of his "Christmas lectures" at the Royal Institution. At the end of his chat-full of humour and very skilfully wrapped up instruction-he hade his boy and' -girl friends adieu in a nice little speech and wished them all a Happy New Year. The professor and his yourv? friends had just returned somewhat" breath less aud awed, from an exciting trip amid the whirling atoms of the Milky Way, a ride on the shaggy back of Ursa Major, and a most enchanting roundabout in the cir cus of the Zodiac. On the way the professor told his fellow travellers how to measure the passage of light from, say, Sirius to the human eye. and how to do lots of other things that happen between our own rolling star and brother twinklers in the firmament. He showed how light took time to travel, just as sound did. You could tell-- th...

The New X-Ray. DISCOVERY WILL REVOLUTIONISE ROENTGEN'S SCIENCE. POSSIBLE CANCER CURE. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 29 May 1914

Ths ftew X-Ray. * DISCOVERY WILL KEVOLUTION 1SE ROENTGEN'S SCIENCE. POSSIBLE CANCER CUKE. Ati entirely new method,of produc ing X-rays has been discovered by jXr. William David Coolidge, of Schnectady, in the State of New York. Experts unite i:i declaring that the method will revolutionise the present one of taking radio graph plates, and of X-ray treat ment. Br. Qtrimby, chief of the X-ray department of the New York Poly clinic Hospital, expressed great en thusiasm. "He"said the new method would completely revolutionise that now in use, but one or two years' work would be required to make the application safe in the treatment of disease, except, in the hands of a skilled expert. The new tube gives X-rays of most remarkable penetrating power, and, it. is claimed, is controlled to a de gree undreamed of when Ront-geu made his discovery. It is the result of research conducted in the labora tories of the General Electric Com pany during a period of three years, and utilises the princip...

Amusements of Lunatics. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 29 May 1914

Amusements of Lunatics. There are many interesting, if withal distressing sights to be witnessed in the daily round of a large lunatic asylum, such as one of . the county establishments.: Not the least is the many different ways in which the inmates seek to amuso themselves, apart from the forms of recreation provided by the autho rities. A visitor to a Lancashire county asylum describes what he witnessed there. There was one old gentleman of venerable appearance, who had be come insane through the shock caused by the failure of a company in which all his fortune was invest ed, who spent all the day in fly ing a huge kite, in which ho seemed to take as great a delight as any ten-year-old bov. On the visitor asking him whether he nevsr got tired of this pursuit, he answered that lie did it, not to amuse him self, but in order to preserve his bodily vigour, for, he gravely ex plained, the kite attracted electri city, which, in its turn, was con ducted down the string, and thus into hi...

Goroke News (From our Correspondent) The officials of the Goroke Tennis Glab issued invitations, to all ^who were likely to become playing mem" bers of the Club to indulge in a friendly game on Thursday afternoon last. About 30 ladies and gentlemen accepted. Through the kindness of Mr W 0.

The secretary said he was delighted to see such a num« ber present, and trusted that the court would frequently present such an animated gathering. It is hoped that the members will back him up and keep the good eld game going right through the wintor Mr Eric Seliinckel, whilst attend ing to:his;'rnotor cycle, struck a match, whicli caused the benzine to ignite and severely burn his faco.

THE DAIRY ONE OF THE EFFECTS OF THE COW-TESTING ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 29 May 1914

THE DAIRY 4 ONE OP THE EFFECTS OF TH COW-TESTING ASSOCIATION. It takes time to see a thing on al: its sides and especially to test its results. It is go with these cow-test ing associations. A Wisconsin sub scriber writing us recently said that one of the most important effects o; cow-testing was that it tests out the cow owner as well as the cow. "That is the reason," he said, "why yot see so many farmers unwilling to en gage in it. They are afraid of them selves as well as their cows." That's a pretty sharp criticism, .but we art confident it is a true one in manj cases. There is such a lot of fann ers keeping cows who have no pride in their business, who are willing tc do business with a lot of inferior, money-losing cows, provided thej thought their neighbours did not know it, that it is hard to reacr them by any appeal to sound busi ness principles. j Any other class of men would have a horror in keeping, for instance, i stack of goods or sat of machines : that they are actuall...
