Motor Cycle Racing. DISCUSSED AT COUNCIL TABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 6 May 1914

DISCUSSED AT COUNCIL TABLE. At Monday's meeting of the Ilarnp donshire Council, the President (Cr W. M'Dowall) referred to last week's 100 mile motor-cycle road race over the Omperd.nvn to Lismore road. He said (his was about the third time he had spoken on the subject of road racing. There was an invasion of motor cyclists for two days, during which there were men travelling over shire roads at a speed of up to 80 miles an hour. The general opinion of the public was that the Council had power to stop racing over their roads, and the "Lismore Advertiser" in a leading article said that it would be stopped when someone was killed or a councillor's flock of sheep cut to pieces. This was hardly fair criticism, as he personally would rather see his sheep killed than any per son injured. He would like to know had the Council any power in the mat ter ; or had the police the power ? If not, it. was up to Cr Of nan and other legislators to see that they were given .the power. In fairness to ...

WASTED YEAR OR JULIA'S DISCOVERY. I. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 6 May 1914

WASTE D YEAR OR JULIA'S DISCOVERY. I. "Confusion worse confounded" had .reigned all day in the handsome estab lishment of Mr. Clavering. Upholster ers had been busy removing furniture and arranging ornaments; gardeners were bearing in exotic plants and .towering pyramids of flowers; confec tioners, French cooks, bakers, vint ners had, in their turn, haunted the precincts; and now, at eight in the evening, there was a general lull, broken only by the exclamations of the troop of woi'thies who were tumbl ing o.ver each other in their zeal to ?give the last finish to the arrange ments for a splendid entertainment. "With an aching "head and limbs ""both weary and worn," the mistress of the house was busied with her .hasty toilet, while her daughter, the "beautiful Grace Clavering, for whose .especial advantage all this trouble and expense had been incurred, having ..completed hers, had thrown herself, perfectly exhausted, into an armchair .before her boudoir fire.

CLEVER BUSINESS MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 6 May 1914

CLEVER BUSINESS MEN. The ability to seize an opportunity is a valuable, nay indispensable, busi ness asi«et as the following incidents go a long way to prove. An aeronaut and his son met with an accident near Rouen some years ago; through the car of their balloon having broken away, father and son were thrown downwards, but the son had been caught when falling in a. hook w.hich pierced his coat. He was carried this way for some miles, ultimately coming to the ground in safety. His coat was pur chased by the makers and hung in their show windows, with a full de scription of how it saved the wear er's life. And as a fitting reward for their enterprise their sales actually doubled. A Welsh miller lost a sovereign In a bin of flour, and after spending many unavailing hours in search of it told a friend of his misfortune. "Perhaps it will turn up in one of the sacks," suggested the friend, whereupon the miller was seized with a brilliant idea. He advertised in the local papers, offering ...

SCOTTS WANTED HERE. The North and South Poled have both been discovered, but there are still Iota of places the geographical world is eimply aching to have defin ite facts about. Geographers were badly sold lately when an explorer knocked on the head the belief that the river Brah maputra (a mighty river that flows along the north side of the Himalayas and joins the Ganges) possesses a -waterfall compared with which Niag ara is a baiby. The lower part of the river is some thousands of feet lower than the up per reaches, and it has long been thought that the unexplored middle region Included a mighty cataract. It doesn't. The geographical world is sorry, but glad to know. Arabia is . country with vast pos sibilities for the ambitious explorer. Only the coast fringe is really known even to the natives, who call the in terior "The Land of the Void." There are 600,000 square miles of it, and it may contain absolutely anything 1n the way of riches, ruins, or-sand. Somebody is wanted to f...

THE BUSY BEE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 6 May 1914

THE BUSY BEE. Winter is close upon us. In the coolest of our districts bees have al ready retired, and before the inontn is out the retirement will be general. During the warmer portions of the days, especially if the sun is bright, the bees will still venture out, but they will not wander far from home it last month's adviqe has been at tended to, i.e., if they are supplied with sufficient honey to carry them on till spring, or the coming breeding season. If bees are forced to go for aging on bright winter days, the sud den atmospheric changes prevent the return of many, and a good supply of food in the hive is the only remedy. It also forms one of the best methods to keep up the warmth of the hive. On -every occasion when the weather is bright and drying, * remove the wraps, etc., from the hives, and spread them out.to dry. External dampness produces internal dampness, which is one of the most prolific causes of di sease. Just before sundown return the protections to the hives. Th...

A WOOD THAT NEVER ROTS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 6 May 1914

A WOOD THAT NEVER ROTS. Engineers have often to deplore the rotting of railway sleepers, of piles, and of wood used to support galler ies, in the building of ships, etc. En gineers, chemists, physicists, biolo gists, doctors, who, for the construc tion of diverse apparatus may require a wood possessing a maximum resist ance to the causes of destruction, par ticularly humidity, are interested in this important question of the un putrescibility of wood. The Ideal would be to find a wood of a charac ter susceptible of resisting putrefac tion naturally. Now it appears from recent researches that the wood of the mangrove tree may be considered as absolutely unputrescible. Numer ous sample of mangrove wood (Rhlzo phora racemosa) sent from French Guinea were, in 1909, placed at Col longes (Cote d'Or) an a soaking pit in the depot of sleepers of the Paris Lyons-Mediterranean Railway Com pany. The samples were surrounded with all the elements susceptible of producing the decomposition and ro...

WINTER CARE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 6 May 1914

WINTER CARE. The season is at hand that is the hardest on our ever faithful friend thie horse. The raw, damp, windy or extreme cold weather, together with a little neglect, may cause the loss of a valu able horse. When a horse comes in wet from work or drive, rub him well and cover with a warm woollen blanket. Always change to a dry blanket when the horse has cooled. Rub the legs well with a wisp of straw or a towel. Every horse is more or less warm when he comes in from a drive. Never strip off the harness or saddle and let the horse rush into a feed of oats or a trough of water. Never give water or oats to a horse until he has been in the stable some time, and has had some hay. This is a sane and safe practices and much loss can be avoided by en forcing it. Change the bit of the horse with the sensitive mouth. Take off the check, or let it out. Try a large rub ber-covered bit. If the horse "drives on one line," look to his teeth at once; a sharp tooth is usually the cause.

FARM IMPLEMENTS. How to Run a Reaper. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 6 May 1914

FARM IMPLEMENTS. How to Run a Reaper. With the modern binder, and in a moderately even crop, there should be practically no waste. Much un necessary waste is occasioned by not giving the machine the right amount of tilt. Many binder experts argue that the machine should be run quite level-that is to say, the knife bar should not be tilted in any way, but the whole machine should be horizon tal, their argument being that the bear ings will run more easily owing chiefly to their parts getting more perfectly lubricated. Now, while it must pe admitted that there is a certain amount of reason in this, it neverthe less cannot be followed to the letter. The practical driver knows from ex perience that to run the binder abso lutely level means a bad-shaped sheaf with an enormous amount of waste, which is greatly increased if there is a slight head breeze, or if the horses should get on a little extra pace. There are two vitarthings in suc cess-capital and organisation.

Skipton Railway Station. A QUESTION OP SITES. RECREATION RESERVE OBJECTED TO BY PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 6 May 1914

Skipton Railway Station. A QUESTION OP SITES. RECREATION RESERVE OBJEC TED TO BY- PUBLIC MEETING. A largely-attended public meeting, convened by Mr H. M. Elder, was held at the Skipton Mechanics' Hall on Saturday night, to consider the matter of the site of the local railway station. The site chosen by the railway authori ties is the recreation reserve. At their April meeting the Hampdenshire conn eillors, who are the trustees of the re creation reserve, decided to write to the Minister of Railways asking that another site be chosen. A petition was then prepared and presented to the Railway Tri.st., asking that no action be taken to alter the site. 1 he convener of the meeting, who was voted to the chair, said that a number of residents felt that there were plenty of places just as suitable for the station site as the recreation re serve, and thought it unfair to put the station on that particular spot. \ lie had convened the meeting to get resi dents' opinion on the subject.

A Mixed Beverage. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 6 May 1914

A Mixed Beverage. The German Emperoi*, while one of a hunting party in the North of Ger many, paid a visit to a lady residing in the neighborhood, and during: his visit was served with a cup of hot bouillon. Engrossed in the conver sation, the Kaiser demanded from the servant some sugar and cream, under the impression that the cup contained tea. The servant brought the snt-,ar and cream, and the Kaiser helped-him self, no one daring to tell His Majes ty of his error. He raised the cup to his lips, and, discovering his mistake, drank the contents with a stoicism at which all wondered. "Say, Lawson,\et me use your 'phone, will you?" "Certainly. What's the matter with yours?" "IA's all right. I want to telephone to my wife that, I'm going to bring a man to dinner. He's in my room now, and I hate to have him watcli my face when my wife tells me what she thinks of the proposition." To digest knowledge one must have swallowed it with an appetite.
