Incombustible Linoleum. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 29 May 1914
incombustible Linoleum. The manufacture of incombustible linoleum,- or, to speak more accu rately, of linoleum that burns with difficulty, has been a goal long aimed at by linoleum factories. The at tempts previously made have been based on the plan of adding- incom bustible matter, such as asbestos or ammonium salts, to Die mass during- the process- of fabrication. Far more promising is a new scheme, described in '.Technische Monatshefte." in which magnesium] carbonate is added to the mass. Ai! the carbonates have the property ^ of giving off carbon dioxide when | heated at high temperatures. This, i as is welt known, is a veiy heavyj gas, which docs not rise, but creeps along- the floor. For this reason in case of a fire it would tend to cut j off the supply of air from the lino leum. Magnesium carbonate is cho I sen because it breaks up at lower temperatures than any other car bonate. The principal involved is, of course, one commonly used in 1 lie manufacture of chemical fire ex...

Lifting Power in Growing Plants. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 29 May 1914
Lifting Power in Growing Plants. * The rapidity with which drooping loaves revive under a shower shows the extraordinary quickness with which plant roots take up water aiul drive it through the stem to the uppermost twigs and leaves. A simple way of discovering how rapid ly this takes place is by watering- a white iris with a blue solution. In j a few hours its white flowers will be streaked with blue. The power j exerted by the roots and stems of I growing- trees is almost incredible. | The roots of a young oak are known, to have lifted a block of granite weighing GJ tons. The lifting began in the fifth year of the tree's growth, and withing tho next seven years the stone was raised more than eight inches. This remarkable feat- has been exceeded by the American swamp cypress, which throws out immense but tresses around its stem. A barge loaded with bricks was wrecked on one of these buttresses in the Okla waha river, and six years lsstcr the growth of the tree had liftc' the wreck ...
A Plant-Food Percolator. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 29 May 1914
A Plant-Food Percolator. £ Obtain two butter tubs and bore a largo number 'of ^-in. holes in the bottom of one, then cover the perforated part with, a piece of fine brass gauze ("Fig. 1), tacking the. gauze well at the corners. The other tub should be fitted with a faucet of some kind-a. wood faucet, costing about 3d. will answer tho purpose. Put the first tub oil top of the other with two narrow strips between them (Fig. 2). Fill the tub, about three-fourths full, with well packed horse manure, and pour water on it until it is well soaked. 'When the water has per colated through into the lower tub, it is ready to use on house and garden plants and. is better than plain water, as it adds both fer tilizer and moisture.
When Sale Sets Sail. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 29 May 1914
When Sale Sets Sail. 1 Two rows iii one morning with her heller-half had decided Mrs. Meggin. "There, that'll do it. !'' she mur mured to herself, as she surveyed the crudely-painted signboard in her cottage garden. "I'll sec if he won't work ! Hanging' on to me for my bit o' cottage !" A party of students from a neigh bouring college strolled past, in the afternoon, and laughed uproariously when they read the little sign, "l-'or Sail." ]\Irs. ?Meg,gin was stolidly cleaning her windows, and never cast an eye at the little gathering. "Hi, old woman," called out one sallow-looking youth, "when does this luouse sail V" "Whenever the man comes along that- can rnyse the wind !" tersely answered the old dame, calmly get ting on with, her wo¥k.

Ladies's Column. SOME GOOD RECIPES. MACARONI. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 5 June 1914
r SOME GOOD RECIPES. MACARONI. It is said that macaroni is not meant to be dressed as a "sweet," and in Italy, I am told, it is never served in that form. Sweet dishes made of it are occasicmal'y sent to table there, witness the following recipe : A quarter of a pound hi ma caroni, one and a half pints of milk, three ounces of sugar, tho thinly pared rinfl of a lemon, three-quar ters 01 a pint of boiled custard, and a grate of nutmeg. Boil tho milk : add the sugar, lemon-rind, and macaroni cut into three-inch lengths; and simmer slowly until tender, but not broken. Put tho whole into a deep pie-dish, and when quite cold pour over the prepared cold cus tard, grate it with nutmeg, and serve. Sufficient for four or five persons. When cold suppers are served in stead of late dinner, to give- the domestics more leisure on Sunday, puddings of the kind described are very acceptable. Considerate mis tresses frequently arrange to change the dinner hour on Sunday from 7 o'clock p.m. to 1 o'cl...
Honesty Insured Here. BEHIND THE SCENES IN A FIDELITY GUARANTEE OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 5 June 1914
Honesty Insured Here. A BEHIND THE SCENES IN A FI DELITY GUARANTEE OFFICE. People think that when a society guarantees, for a consideration, a man's fidelity, it, at any rate, be lieves that honesty is not ex tinct. Dear, dear ! As a fact, it often stands bond for somebody whom it would not trust alone with the pettj- cash.; And it can well afford to do so because it gets an indemnity from the man's relatives. By some means a worthless rascal obtained a Poor Law appointment, And a certain offico guaranteed his honesty to the extent of £500. In less than six months he bolted with over £400, which the insurers had to pay. Not a-penny, how ever, did they lose. The runaway's unfortunate relatives reimbursed the society in full. Contrary to popular belief, a so ciety nearly always insists that a warrant shall be taken out for an embezzler. This is done, not in the interests of justice-for who 1 ever knew a guarantee society ac tually prosecute ?-but for self pro S. The object. in fad. » ...
The Work of the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 5 June 1914
? ?? in mwM-miwptwit The Work of the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council. 9 In a building at the corner of Downing- Street and Whitehall, in a bright, comfortable room furnished like a library, throe or four elderly gentlemen are seated at a horse shoe table. A barrister in robes is addressing them l'rom a kind of lectern. Less than half-a-dozen other people, including a couple of at tendants in evening dress, are pre sent. 'J he occasion is a sitting of the .Judicial Committee of the Frivy Council-the court of appeal for tho whole Empire. The Judicial Committee, of which tho Lord Chancellor is the head, may sit for weeks 011 end without receiving any notice iti the Eng lish newspapers, save perhaps in ''The Times" law reports. It is no uncommon thing thoiigh for their Lordships to deliver a judgment which causes part of the Empire "down under" or away to the West to throb with excitement when the sun travels round there a few hours later. Dark-skinned ^barristers from ItK dia f...
With the Brand of— BUSY DAYS AMONG THE CATTLE ON AN AUSTRALIAN RANCH. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 5 June 1914
With the Brand of BUSY DAYS AMONG THE CATTLE OX AN AUSTRALIAN RANCH. It has been well said that in cer tain parts of Australia there are just two main industries, cattle raising- and "cattle-dulling." I lie diiierence is that one man, the one engaged in the "raising,"* bieeds the cattle : Die other brands them-with his own brand. Iho "duffer s ' programme is first to take up a small piece of country on the margin of a big' man's sta tion, then buy a small stock of breeaers, say 100 head. -Sometimes, too, even his alleged breeders may be working bullocks-anything, in fact, that answers to the descrip tion of "cattle." A capital of £200 will see Kim well on the way to a fortune. All he now has to do is to "'sit tight" and avoid company. The .average pastoralist does not employ a suffi cient number of men to "brand up" his calves as they are born-it would be next door to impossible for him to : do so, in view of the immense size of his holding-and consequent ly the -"duffer" places his...

Found Dead NORADJUHA PUBLICAN, A-sudden death occured at Norad juha on Tuesday evening. Mr Alex. Munro, who has conducted the Com mercial Hotel for the past 15 months, was found dead in a room at the hotel. It appears that deceased, who hud been drinking somewhat heavily of late, left the bar at about 5.30 to have a lie down. An hour and a half later Mrs Munro went into the room to call him to tea. che was horrified to find her husband lying on the floor with his head resting against a towel rack. Apparently he had died immediately he entered the the room. Constable .Rowley, of Nafcimuk, who was rung up on the telephone, drove across. He exam ined the body, and, finding no marks suggesting violence, he communicated the facts to Dr Bird, who gave a cer tificate that Mr Munro died from Bright's disease and heart failure, deceased having been uuder the care of Dr Bird for some time. Deceased, who was 43 years of age, came from Elaine, near Ballarat, to Noradjuha. He leaves a widow and ...
