The flagman rushed out with a red flag. iThe "Green Bullet" stopped with a grinding of ibrakes and a tearing lip of ties and road toed. The engine driver leapt down excitedly, and the new flagman said: "Yer late. What kept ye?"

Evidence of Experts. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 3 April 1914

Evidence of Experts. The value of the evidence of ex pert? in criminal cases was the sub ject of some comment by his Honor Juge Box at Wangaratta last week, says the 'Dispatch." Experts in handwriting were called by the pro secution and defence, ana though to the casual frequenter of the court it appeared remarkable, the judge said he was not surprised to hear tbem give opinions diametrically opposed. His Honor said experts in handwriting were noted for their differences of opinion; in fact, they were equalled only by doctors in that respect, and that was saying a great deal. Of course, when an ex pert was engaged by the side alleg ing forgery, he set out to find simi larities in the writing on the forged document and that of the person alleged to be guilty.. On the other hand, if he was engaged by the per son against whom the offence was alleged, he found all the dissimi larities he could. Therefore the net results of experts' evidence was practically nil. It is announced in the "....

Elective Ministries. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 3 April 1914

Elective Ministries. A resolution approving of the elective Ministries was passed by the Australian Natives' Association at its conference last week, and will be brought under the notice of the State Ministry by the association. The Premier commenting on the subject on Saturday, remarked that he had always held the view that elective Ministries would.cure many of the evils to which party govern ment had given ri*e in Australia. He had adhered to that view in spite of his somewhat increased ad ministrative experiehcej.biit this he held, too, that the people them selves must make up their minds to legislate. To force such a system on a reluctant Parliament or com munity would have prejudicial effect, and would tend to stifle it at its birth. It involved a change of attitude on the part of. the com munity, and that change must be gradual and the result of education. Captain Turner, of the Manre tauia, will have charge of the new Cunard liner Aquitania, at present being constructed at C...

What Is a Thistle. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 3 April 1914

What Is a Thistle. In the Practice Court his Honor Mr Justice a'Beckelt gave his re served decision in the case of Mar shall v WettenbaH. The case was one in which Messrs Weitenhall Bros, were fined £6 in the Edenhope Court of Petty Ses sions for not destroying star and saffron thistles on the Lake Wal lace Estate. Counsel for defendants pleaded that the Government Gazette proclaiming such plants as thistles within the meaning of the Act was not submitted to the court, therefore the court had no know ledge of the proclamation. The chairman of the bench said that he knew that the district bad beeu proclaimed, and proceeded to hear the case. An order nisi to re view the decision was obtained,and. an application to make the order absolute. His Honor said that the Act pro vided various modes by which a proclamation might be proved, but this did not affect the question whether proof was necessary when the judicial officer knew the con tents of a proclamation indepen dently of proof.

Australia's Wealth. OUR IRRIGATION SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 3 April 1914

Australia's Wealth. OUR IRRIGATION SCHEME Earl Grey with his wife and daughter has made a tour of the Australian Siates and New Zea land and was asked what had im pressed him moj-t, so far, as a student of the Empire in his journeys throueh the Commonwealth. •'Wherever I have been," he re plied, "in Western Australia, Smith Australia, Victoria and New Zea land—what lias itnpiessed me most is the enormous wealth waiting for development by primary producers. Let me give you only one instance of this. I made a tour , of inspec tion of 400,000 acres, which are being irrigated by th: Goulburn ir rigation scheme in Victoria There hard-working fruitgrowers had rea lised profits which puts beyond any question of doubt that if their fruit land could be offered to the public as mining shares there would be a universal scramble for their posses sion.

Lucerne. (Continued from Tuesday's Issue.) Concluded. EVENNESS OF GROWTH. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 3 April 1914

Lucerne. By "Yarran" in the "Weekly Times." (Continued from Tuesday's Issue.) Concluded. EVENNESS OF GROWTH. Ou March 11, "Yarrau" observed the fifth cutting being made. It was a swelteriug day of hot northerly winds, and in a land of dry, grey expanses the sight of the standing lucerne green, fragrant, and decked with flowers, bounded by thick windrows of succulent for age, was inspiring because it hinted at possibilities. The standing crop was about 3 feet high, thick, and even throughout, fine in texture, and with a high ratio of leaf to stalk. In fact, it was a perfect forage. The only places where the growth was not up to the average were in the higher check banks, where the water could not get, and they en abled the definite deduction to 'te made-that much of the unevenness iu growth of lucerne in . irrigation areas is due 10 the ineffective appli cation of water. Mr Wilson, the manager at Werribee, emphatically states thit the dominating factor-, in securing big crops, where ...

CIRCULAR SAWS OF PAPER. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 3 April 1914

CIRCULAR SAWS OF PAPER. i Paper is at present used for all pos sible purposes in the industries and in all possible forms. It has even been possible by means of compression to give it a degree of hardness compar able witli stone, so that it can be used as building material, The latest use for paper, however, is perhaps the most peculiar. A factory is-,said to exist in England which is manufactur ing circular saws from paper. These paper saws are used for the manufac turing ot fine furniture, veneer and other thin plates of wood, which must be treated especially carefully. Some time ago circular saws made from drawing paper were shown in an English exposition. The saws 1 were driven by an electric motor and produced fine boards, which could 1 not have been made better even by the finest steel saw. The veneers made in this way are so smooth that the cabinet makers can use them without further planing.

WHERE SOUND CANNOT BE HEARD. A Mystery of the Sea. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 3 April 1914

WHERE SOUND CANNOT BE HEARD. A Mystery of the Sea. It is a singular and somewhat dis turbing fact that there frequently ex ists at sea, in the area covered by a fog, what might be described as a zone of silence; that is, a belt of space in which sound cannot be heard. It is the only thing of all others most dreaded by markers. There may be danger ahead—say, a deadly rock lying right in the vessel's course. The light that marks it, whether from lighthouse or lightship, is blanketed by the fcg, but the crew at least expect to hear the warning blast of the fog horn. No such blast reaches them. The sound is "com pleteiy lost in the silence zone, and the first intimation they have of the danger is when the vessel crashes on the rock. To this cause undoubtedly maj he attributed some of the great dloas ters at sea which have puzzled many shore people. There was trw ease of the Stella, for instance, which ran full tilt on the Casquet Rocks, off Alderney. The Stella was a ra'Iway steamer; pl...

CARE OF YOUNG TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 3 April 1914

CARE OF YOUNG TREES. The care of the young trees at this season of the year is one of the mcst important of orchard operations. Many trees have been planted out <iur ing the past season. Whatever care and attention are given to the young trees will be amply repaid to the grower in after years, owing to the vigor, sturdiness, and other Qualities thus imparted to them. It is a mis take to plant a young orchard, and, after cutting back the trees, to leave them practically to their own devices, other than following the usual meth ods of soil cultivation. The trees, after the early summer cultivation and cleaning of the soil, should be mulched with straw, grass, or leafage of some description. This mulching should not be crowded round the stem, its object being main ly to create moist ana cool soil con ditions, and to encourage a free root system. The mulch material should be occasionally stirred, and no weed or grass growth should be permitted to accumulate amongst it. Where ...

Unfortunately, the booking clerk had only a limited number of tickets for that journey at his disposal. •"Eventually he got out of his diffi culty hy dividing the pieces of paste board and issuing children's tickets to the party, at the same time explaining to me how matters stood. " 'T.hey've "paid the full fare, of course,' he remarked, 'so you must see 'em through.' "I had almost forgotten the matter, when a ticket-examiner at B came to me and remarked, with a sorrowful shake of the head: " 'This under-age dodge is getting too -wanm!' " 'What's the matter?' I asked. " 'Matter?' he echoed, disgustedly. 'Why, here's a whole. carriage full o' children wot plays cards, drinks •whis ky, and wears whiskers!'"
