THE BUFF ROCK. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
THE BUFF ROCK. ... This is one of the many good breeds for the production of which America is solely responsible. Al though not so popular as the Barred Rock and, of course, more recent, it is gradually attaining a status of its own. It is primarily a utility fowl, that is to say, it is more use ful than ornamental; but it stands out pre-eminently as a; laying breed. It is a better layer than the Barred and is quite as jhardy. The hens are reliable sitters; and. mothers and are not given, .to^; .undue 'brpodiness. Those on- the look otji^for a good general-purpose fbwlbmight go fur ther and fare worse;
SAVAGE AND CIVILISED. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
SAVAGE AND CIVILISED. While an African native man will work for the white man, he will never do anything for himself — if there are any women about. It is beneath his dignity to work. He will fish and hunt, make seines and crude implements and canoes, or pass away his time smoking strong tobacco and dozing, but he would not think of lending his wife a helping hand. He compels her to cut down the trees for firewood and for his. dug-out canoes, and when they arrive at the spot^in^the forest or jungle where he decides1* to build his town the women must clear away the tangled forest. To civilised minds tree-Jpl.ling, wood-carrying, and jungle-fclearing arex certainly laborious work for woman, but an African woman knows nothing else ; yet hers are much more healthful tasks than the white woman's. Housekeeping for the white woman means the perpetual doing of the same endless tasks in the same monotonous environment. Entire ly different is the life of the Afri can woman. She has always tim...

COLOURS OF FLOWERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
COLOURS W FLOWERS.' According to a German scientist, out of 1000 species of flowers 284 are white, 223 yellow, 223 re*1, 144 blue, 72 violet, 36 green, 12 orange, 4 brown, and 2 black. Further more, he says that only one species out of every ten 'has any perfume. Among white flowers fifteen out of 100 species have perfume, among red flowers nine, among green eight, among yellow. and violet, each sev en, among orange and brown, each six, and among black flowers none. At first glance these figures seem to be complete, but anyone who takes the trouble to add those which are given in regard to the colours of flowers will find that the total am ounts to 997 and not to 1 ,000. Con sequently it is evident that in every 1, 000 species,, £here are three which must he of-. 1 some extraordinary colour, since they are neither white, yellow, red, blue, violet, green, or ange, brown, nor black.. . y
FARMERS UNIONS AND THE "BIG MEN." To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
FiRMERS1 UNtOtfS AND TflM ' BIG MEN.' To the Editor. Sir, — At' a recent meeting of the Boree Creek Farmers' Union, 1 took the opportunity of moving that, tl e membership of onr unions should be. confined to men holding reasonable areas, meaning therebj' that the men with big areas should be excluded. And why should they be ranked with the true farmer class ? The inter ests of each were never the same, and never will be, and it is the great est mistake out that these big men are admitted. We all know how the Pastures' Protection Board assess us. They say 1^ acre, will feed a sheep. I say it will not. Mr Hors fall's 60 years' experience of pastoral pursuits ought to qualify him to speak on this. Hp, when writing about the Federal Land Tax, said' it took three acres of land to feed a dieep on the plains season in, season and seasou out. I think he let tbe cat out of the bag then. But, never mind, I think he is right, and the P. P. Board wrong. Yours, etc , JAMES VERDON.
OPIUM. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
OPIUM. Many people have no idea what opium is.. It is nothing but the dried juice of the white poppy, a flower that grows wild in many parts of Asia, and is also cultivated there. A few days after the flowers have fallen off the plants men go through the fields in the afternoon, arid make little cuts in the poppy head. Out of these cuts a' milky juice oozes, Which1 dries into a brown,; sticky paste. Every morning 'the men go through the fields again, and scrape off this paste, which they put into jars. Later on it is made into half pound balls, and then packed for shipment. Iri China it is most used^ for smoking, either with tobacco or pure. In America and in Europe it is used chiefly for making laudanum and paregoric. Laudanum is no thing but opium dissolved in alco hol; paregoric issa mixture of opium, camphor, alcohol, honey, and some other things. Opium quiets the nerves and allays pain, and for that 'reason is a valuable drug, but it should never . be- touched except as ordered...

UNLUCKY FRIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
UNLUCKY FRIDAY. The bad luck supposed to attach to -Friday is said to be traceable to the worship of the goddess Freya, the Venus of the North, who felt herself slighted if anyone began a journey on this, her festival. In punishment for the dishonour thus brought upon her, Freya was wont to direct misfortune to assail. the of fender, so that it came to be thought that Friday was an unlucky time to embark on any enterprise. In Walsh's 'Curiosities of Popular Customs' is told the story of the brig Friday, of Wilmington, whose builder defied superstition by giving her this whimsical name and launch ing her on Friday- He also sent her upon her first voyage on the sixth day of the week, but on the succeed ing Friday ._ a home-bound vessel 'saw the hull of a brig pitching heavily in the trough of the sea, while her crew ran about the desk, cutting loose the wreck of the masts that dragged and bumped along side.' This -was the last seen of the brig Friday. .
WOMEN SPIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
WOMEN SPIES. There are in Europe scores , of widely-known women spies, whose services are at the command of whichever Government will pay best. They are masters in trickery and cunning, and, in addition, usually pretty and fascinating— a combina tion that will beat out the best man skill that the secret service of Eur ope affords nine times out of ten. In Russia, where the secret service is raised to the level of fine art, the woman spy is recognised as an ex tremely valuable medium for obtain ing information, not about foreign matters, but also concerning the various . revolutionary movements going on at home. One of the most notorious of these feminine police spies, posing as one of the Terror ists, took part in their enterprises, and discovering all their plans gave information to the police. For this work she obtained a handsome monthly salary. Scores of those who had trusted her went into exile in Siberia on the plot being discover ed.
BANANAS AND BANANAS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
BANANAS AND BANANAS. To most persons in the temperate zones a banana is a banana. But the truth is that there are over sixty known varieties of the fruit, with as great, or greater, variation in character as in the different kinds-of apples. Hawaii is said to have something over forty distinct varie ties of the fruit,, most of which have been introduced by the whites. Some of these are of extremely deli cate and delicious flavour, while oth er kinds are used, if at all, only when cooked in various ways. There is scarcely a city house lot or coun try homestead which does not have a clump or two of bananas, which grow with practically no care, new plants or suckers shooting up to re place the ones which have fruited and been removed.
A CURIOUS FRAUD. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
A CURIOUS FRAUD. The Chinese are past masters in the art of trickery, and some of their tricks are practised among us. One is a method by which they can make a postage stamp do service almost indefinitely. The sender of the letter passes over the stamp some paste, which, m appearance, is not unlike the gum at the back of a stamp. When the stamp is oblkV erated it takes the impression, but it is not even 'skin deep.'. The receiver of the letter must be a con federate, and he passes a damp sponge over the stamp. This re moves the paste, and with it the postal mark, so until the stamp is worn out it can be used for franking letters.

Facts & Fancies. A TASTE FOR FINGERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
Facts & Fancies. A TASTE FOR FINGERS. That giant ape, the ourang out angof Borneo, has a curious meth od of fighting. In their conflicts among themselves, which are fre quent, the. ourang outangs ajways endeavdur to seize the fingers of their adversaries and bite them. It is owing to this method of battle that it is almost impossible to pro cure the skin which does not lack some of the fingers. If defending itself against a man, the ourang will always jittempt to grasp the arms of his human opponent, so as to chew off His fingers. For this purpose its jaws are excellently adapted, be ing enormously powerful and equip ped with huge incisors.

PEN POINTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
PEN POINTS. When did you whitewash the hen house last. Use plenty of insect powder in the hens' nests these warm days. Be sure that the roosting quarters are well ventilated at this time of the year. . . ,piaster.of paris scattered over the floor of the poultry-house' is a good absorbent and purifier. When fowls are wanted for mar keting and egg-laying select those that are prolific and will put on flesh readily. The food for small ducks should always be of a soft nature. They will not thrive well if fed a large part on whole grain, and this often causes many deaths. Blend the feed carefully with pro per proportions of starch, fat, and nitrogenous matter. Fine birds can not be reared on a badly-balanced ration. - .' ? . ? Keep the drinking vessels filled with fresh water.

The Moonlight Concert. A FINE ENTERTAINMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
The Moonlight Concert. A FINE ENTERTAINMENT. Mr H. J. Foreman, headv teacher of the local pnblic school, his staff and thejparents who rendered assist ance may be congratulated freely upon the success which attended the innovation of a moonlight concert. The event took place, on Friday evening, the 18th inst., under the pteasantest of weather' conditions. There is tliis to be said about the weather, however, that, an hour or two before the time for commencing dark, treacherous, thunderous clouds appeared to be grimly erecting a fortress on The Rock*itself and there was uncertainty, amongst the country residents especially, as to whether the gunners of Cloudland, under General Boreus, would open fire whilst they drove in to the concert or later on. In their uncertainty the country friends of the school, or many, of them, stayed at home. It was a shame that the promoters had thus to suffer, for their excellent qoncerc justified Ihe attendance' of every Jack man of them. Thanks to the ...

Silk dresses shoujld ne^er be brushed, bub should be carefully rubbed with an old piece of velvet kept specially for that) purpose.
