Leila awoke at Desdy's touch in a spacious (bedroom, with wide embat tled windows looking out upon the Firth of Forth. "Lally," he cried, "why do you not get up—the clock had struck a lot of times.

CIRCULAR SAWS OF PAPER. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 4 April 1914

CIRCULAR SAWS OF PAPER. Paper is at present used for all pos sible purposes in the industries and in all possible forms. It has even been possible by means of compression to give it a degree of hardness compar able with stone, so that it can be used as building material, The latest use for paper, however, is perhaps the most peculiar. A factory is said to exist in England which is manufactur ing circular saws from paper. These paper saws are used for the manufac turing oL fine furniture, veneer and other thin plates of wood, which must be treated especially carefully. Some time ago circular saws made from drawing paper were shown in an English exposition. The saws were driven by an electric motor and produced fine boards, which could not have been made better even by the fiuest steel saw. The veneers made in this way are so smooth that | the cabinet makers can use them | .without further planing.

WHERE SOUND CANNOT BE HEARD. A Mystery of the Sea. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 4 April 1914

WHERE SOUND CANNOT BE ■ HEARD. A Mystery of the Sea. It is a singular and somewhat dis turbing fact that there frequently ex ists at sea, in the area covered by a fog, what might be described as a zone of silence; that is, a belt of space in which sound cannot be hear," It is the only thing of all others most dreaded by mariners. There may be danger ahead—say, a deadly rock lying right in the vessel's course. The light that marks it, whether from lighthouse or lightship, is blanketed by the fcg, but the crevr at least expect to hear the warning blast of the fog horn. No such blast reaches them. The sound is cum pletely lost in the silence zone, and the first intimation ttey have of the danger is when tho \tssel crashes cm the rock. To this cause undoubtedly niaj he attributed some of the great di^as ters at sea which have puzzlod many, shore people. There was trie case of the Stella, for instance, which ran full tilt on the Casquet Rocks, off Mderney. The Stella was a ra'lway steame...

CARE OF YOUNG TREES. The care of the young treea at this season of the year is one of the mcst important, of orchard operations. Many trees have 'been planted out dur ing the past season. Whatever care and attention are given .to the young trees will be amply repaid to the grower in after years, owing to the vigor, sturdiness, and other qualities thus imparted to them. It its a mis take to plant a young orchard, and, after cutting back the trees, to leave them practically to their own devices, other than following the usual meth ods of soil cultivation. The trees, after the early summer cultivation and cleaning of the soil, should he mulched "with straw, grass, or leafage of some description.
