Overcrowding the New World. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 17 April 1914
Overcrowding the New World. The area of the United States. exclud ing Alaska, is just 3,000,000 square miles ; the average density of the New England States is seventy-one inhabitants to the square mile, so that it may be said that the Union could easily support 210,000,000 souls, or L'.a ?y i its present popula tion. Meantime other vast fields are opening to invite immigrants. Canada, Brazil, Spanish America, and Australia are each of them larger than the Uni.ed States. Each of them could find room for 200,000,000 settlers, which shows that there is no motive to fear that the world will be overcrowded for many centuries to come.-M. G. Mulhall, in " North American Review."

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 17 April 1914
MELBOURNE LETTER (from our Special Correspondent.) An industry which is not new, but which seems to be developing, has been Smuch in evidence. lately. It is that in ' which ladies inore ore less young, sow harrowing tales of blighted hopes and manugled affections into the eari of -sympavh' tic jurymen, and reap sub?? stanuial crops in the shape of daliin"g,u. Like all enterprises that open up pros pects of big easy money--to wt, pie cureo.shows, dance halls, and ''aingo .tes--tiis will probably be exploi -d for all it is worth. But the fickl for it is. not likely to remain easy . Like thie wild duck a few days after the opening of the season, the quarry is likely to become wary. It, thereforo, does not call for an altogether absurd stretch of imagination to carry us for ward to the time when the stationers will stock, in addition to the custom ary forms for making a will and such like, blank agreement forms which can readily be filled in with a fountain pen or indelible pencil, by t...

"She appeared to S have co n Ssumption of the bowels, S and I took her to the 'hospital, /, 7" where they prescrib ed ,ro.ns al'hro. powders which I gave her, but did not seem to do any good. I then discovered she had Worm Fever, and tried vari ous medicines, which, although they caused her to pass some worms, only afforded temporary relief. One day I received one of your books describ ing what Comstock's 'Dead Shot' Worm Pellets had done for other children, and I straight away pro cured a packet. After the first dose the result was simply marvellous, the child passing hundreds of worms. This was four months ago, I have since continued the treatment and feel sure she is now practically rid of them. Whereas previously my d...

THE MEAT TRADE DALOETY'S REVIEW. The increased demand for meat, which is making itself felt in the com mercial centres in many of the cities of the world, the new opening of markets and the prognostications that there will be a shortage of supply both in mutton and beef in the future, are evoking con siderable attention among stock-owners of Queensland.

YOUR BILLIONS OF ANCESTORS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 17 April 1914
YOUR BILLIONS OF ANCESTORS. Hlave you ever stopped to think how many male and female ancestors it took to bring you into the world ? First, of course, it rras necessary to have a father and mnother, and the father and. mother of each of us must have had a father and mother, and so on back through fifty-six genera tions to' the time of Christ. A careful calculation of all these ancestors shows that there must have been 139,235,017,489,534,976 births to bring one of us into the world. and this is onily~: frii the tiime=of Christ, and not front .the beginning of the world. According to one aiuthoi ity, if from a single couple for five': thousand years each husband and wife had tnarried.n at the age of twenty-one, and there had been no deaths, the population of the earth would be 2,199,915, followed by .d14 ciphers. To hold such a..population, it would take several worlds the size of ours.

WHAT YOU LOOK LIKE TO L~AY. -4----- A new-born baby imust have a curious idea of the world. Every thing seims exactly the same distance from the eyes, and it sees only a flat surface. It is a long time before the baby learns that objects are solid. Althqugh the baby-can see -the mo ment its eyes open, it cannot hear until the second day of its existence. Smell and taste are quite confused at first, and not until the fourth or lifth week can it focus cbjects in the eye. Consequently everything seems blurred and mixed up d?iur?ig th filrst month of life. Ip, 1a long time after, all things arIp ot one colour, probably a whitish grey.
