CHAPTER II. "THE DEVIL'S OWN DARLING." [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 2 July 1914
CHAPTER II. . "THE DEVIL'S OWN DARLING." The captain of the Merry England came up to Josh, who was lounging1, on the deck smoking . a cigar, and looking more civilised than he had done- when he and his companion were picked up ; in fact, he looked altogether different from the man who had gone on board the Fairy Queen at Melbourne. In the first place, he was wearing a well-cut suit of dark blue serge, that had been part of the captain's wardrobe, and being a tall man, his clothes fitted Josh fairly well ; also he had shaved both his moustache and the long straggling beard, and was now clean shaven, which made a complete al teration in his appearance, giving him a smarter look. " • "Mr. Zetman, Mr. Hetherington wishes to see you. I have drawn up a will at his request, and he has just signed it in my presence and that of the tWo mates. I don't think he can last long, poor fellow," he said. | "I'm afraid not, captain. I'll go to his cabin and flinging away the cigar, Josh descended the...
ATMOSPHERIC CONDENSATION. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 2 July 1914
ATMOSPHERIC CONDENSATION. | The condensation of moisture in the atmosphere—i.e., the initial step in the formation of clouds, fog, rain^ hail, an'd show—has been explained for more than a generation by the presence in the air of myriads of minute (mostly ultra-' microscopic) '' dust'' particles, each - of' which was supposed to'serve as a cen tre of condensation. The well-known instrument invented by Aitken, in 188S, ' ill ' which, after a small measured vol ume of air has been cooled by expan sion, the resulting droplots of water are inspected through a .microscope and counted, is know as the " dust-counter-," | because it has been assumed that the I number of drops formed in this process represents the. number of particles of' "dust" in the given volume of air. This idea is intrenched in the very "latest works on meteorology iii the Eng lish langur.ge, though qualified by the admission that in a highly supersatu rated atmosphere, such as may be pro duced at will in a labatory but ...
THE GARDEN. COLOUR IN APPLES. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 2 July 1914
THE GARDEN. COLOUR IN APPLES. Evidence in support of the old opiiion that sunlight is the chief agent in developing colour in apples is afforded in a bulletin from the Pennsylvanian experiment station on "The Fertilising of Apple Orchards." Various dressings were applied to the trees in order to ascertain their re spective effects upon growth of wood and yield and colour of fruit. Farm yard manure and nitrogenous artifi cial manure alone or in combination notably increased growth and yield, but reduced colour. The latter is at tributed to "delayed maturity and a diminished light supply to the fruit, due to an increase in the density of the foliage.". It is added that ex periments proved that exposure to sunlight after picking increased red ness by over 35 per cent., while some of the same lot of fruit stored in darkness showed practically no deep ening of colour. The conclusion is that "maturity in sunlight on the trees is undoubtedly the greatest in fluence affecting redness in fru...
HEAVILY IMSURED LIMBS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 2 July 1914
HEAVILY iPiSyREa/LIMBS. • The recent accident to Mine. Pavlova in New York, which was at first repor ted to be somewhat serious, recalls the faet that, like Paderewaki, whose fingers are insured for a colossal sum against injury, tlie charming dancer lias a policy which protects her against loss from ac cidents to hor limbs, and especially her feet and dainty toes, upon which her art, and her' income alike depend. It has not yet been learnt how ■.far the present accident comes under the terms of this policy, although it is understood "that the disablement of either of the big toes would moan payment of £0000, and of ouO of the lbsser toes £3000. This, however, is by no means an ex ceptional insurance. Nijinsky, who re cently appeared at the Palace, and Mile. Genee have insured themselves for seve-! ral'. thousand of pounds against acci dents Avhicli would prevent them from ! dancing, while M. De Biere, the famous I ."illusionist, followed the example of some ! well-known musicians a...

THE DAIRY -7 IMAGINARY CONVERSATION. | Between James Walton, manager of .the Innamincka Co-operative Butter ( Factory, and one of bis suppliers— in this instance, Bill Thompson. Walton : I was out your way yes jterday, Bill. You seem to be milking, a lot of cows. How many ? Bill : Oh, between 50 and 60. I don't know for certain. Walton : But you should know,. It is the height of folly, not to know. Supposing I came to our annual meeting and you asked me how many lbs. of cream it took to make the butter we had produced / supposing I said that I wasn't sure—what sort of a man would you think I was ? Bill : Yes, but that's different. Walton : No, it's not different. The men are different, that's all. You and I are different. Now, don't go away, Bill. I want to ask you some ques tions. I want to know what kind of. bull — what breed of bull — you're using. Bill : A Jersey. Walton : Then how came all those Ayrshire markings and Ayrshire heads ? Bill : I had an Ajrshire before I j bought t...

A THIEF WHO DIDN'T GALL. HIM SELF A THIEF. "Thank Heaven !" The words were spoken by a tall, gjaunt man of about thirty, who carried a pickaxe, - spade, and a bundle, as he paused in front of a rough wooden shed. He had walked many, miles, and the sun was blazing as only an Austra lian sun can blaze, and the wayfarer who had worked many weary months at a' claim and at last given it up in disgust, then set oS hoping to find a spot that would give him some re turn for his toil. But the place to which he was bound was still many miles distant, and he was weary and footsore, therefore the sight of this unexpected shelter caused him to ex . claim with thankfulness. ! It was not often he thought or ■ spoke of the Almighty, not being a God-fearing man or a swearer, and the words were almost a surprise to himself. "...

BEETROOT LEAVES AS FODDER. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 2 July 1914
: BEETROOT LEAVES AS FODDER. i • Tho process of drying the leaves of tho sugar beefc crop is being gradually evolved -in Germany on practical lines, and it is estimated tliat when the pro cess becomes general it ivill represent an economy of something like £8,000.000 at present expended on other feeding stuffs. According to experts, the value of the dried leaves is £3 to £3/10/ a ton, without taking into consideration the residual value of manure. As a fod der the dried leaves ara eaten readily by cattle, and are quite free from tlie drawbacks arising from tho consump tion of large quantities of the leaves in a fresh state.

HINTS ON PIG FEEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 2 July 1914
HINTS ON PIG FEEDING. It is reported from England that a farmer owning a number of pigs was in the habit of feeding them with the kitchen refuse from a restaurant, to which he added barlej meal and molasses to flavour the food. As an experiment he omitted the molasses which the pigs liked very much, and then found that the excrements of the animals contained pieces of undigest ed food, and that the animals be came finicky in eating. When he again added the molasses these symptoms disappeared ; the pigs ate greedily, and the food was quite digested. Salt is another substance that adds j to the flavour of many foods making j them more appetising and therefore more digestible. When cooked pota f toes are fed to pigs, salt should al ways be added, and every farmer knows that a little salt mixed with hay, that is not quite as fresh as it might be, is a great improvement. It is said to be a fact that the pigs of large litters are usually more uniform in size, and fatten more | quickly tha...
